White Court

The Skavis is a White Court vampire from House Skavis, first seen in White Night.


The Skavis was a pale, effeminate-looking male, who hid himself under the guise of Priscilla of the Ordo Lebes.[1] As such, he always wore turtlenecks to pass a one of the Ordo's women.[2] He was intent in abducting and killing off practitioners in an effort to cull off potential progenitors for wizards and framing the Wardens.[3][4]
