Skakmat is Nulfaga's dragon familiar. It reported to her on the happenings in Daggerfall when she retired to Castle Shedungent during the War of Betony. Under Nulfaga's orders, it created a sudden unnatural fog at the Battle of Cryngaine Field which blinded the combatants, providing the cover necessary to allow Gothryd to kill Lysandus' impersonator in a successful attempt to feign the king's death. It is often misconceived that the fog was created by daedric magic, or that it was Nulfaga's attempt to halt the battle.
- Skakmat does not appear in-game, as it doesn't have a body image.
- The dragon is in some way associated with the Wrothgarian Mountains.
