Real name: Keldor
Mortally wounded in battle with his half-brother Captain Randor, Keldor turned to his dark-arts master Hordak to save his life. Hordak merged Keldor with an extra-dimensional being, changing him forever into Skeletor, Overlord of Evil! He gathered together many of Eternia`s greatest outcasts and evil warriors in his quest to gain entry into Castle Grayskull and obtain what he believes is the universe`s ultimate power source.
Using dark magic taught by Hordak, Skeletor occasionally creates new forms of armor and weapons to outmaneuver the Matsers of the Universe. His BATTLE ARMOR was first created to help Skeletor
penetrate through the Mystic Wall in order to kidnap Adora and secretly clone the Sorceress of Grayskull. The original armor was destroyed by Oo-larr after three strikes with his mighty battle axe, sending
Skeletor back behind the Wall. Skeletor reformed the armor 20 years later in an effort to combat a similar battle suit now worn by He-man. Although lacking the mystic qualities of the original, his new
armor was stronger and more powerful. Skeletor, Evil Lord of Destruction is now protected by his magic BATTLE ARMOR!
As the ruler of Eternia following Randor’s banishment, Skeletor created a new magical armor infused with an Eternian Dragon, giving him the power to paralyze his enemies at first glance. His rule was cut short, however, when Skeletor’s former master Hordak returned from Despondos with the help of Evil-Lyn. Hordak not only overthrew Skeletor, but drove the Snakemen into hibernation. Forced into a war on multiple fronts, Skeletor continued to lead his Evil Warriors into battle, often having to fight side-by-side with his former enemies – the now renegade Masters of the Universe. Perched on his master’s armor, the Evil Dragon “pet” of Skeletor stops his enemies cold with his paralyzing jet spray of venom.
In preparation for the Second Ultimate Battleground, Skeletor commissioned a new armor upgrade from his chief weapons master, Spikor. Arming himself with Terror Claws, Skeletor leapt into battle against the Snakemen, Horde Army and the Masters of the Universe. In single combat he slew Gygor, Lord of the Vine Jungle, and eventually fought and mortally wounded his former master. Finishing Hordak off with a magical spell which drained his essence, Skeletor learned of the might of the Horde Empire, and quickly turned his ambitions to the stars. After the battle, Skeletor left Eternia behind in favor of a grander prize – as ruler of the entire Universe!
After taking command of the Unnamed One's Revenge Squad, Skeletor led his all new group of Evil Warriors against the Trollan’s defensive stronghold. Breaking into the Temple of Power using Horde Prime's Vortex Key, Skeletor absorbed
ultimate power from the Star Tree, gaining his Laser Light abilities. Preparing to flee, Skeletor was confronted by his old enemy He-Man on the Jaw Bridge Gate. In their climatic final duel, Skeletor was defeated when He-Man used the
Power of Grayskull to separate Keldor from the demon that kept him alive. With a clear mind, in what he thought was his dying breath, Keldor gave his nephew the Vortex Key asking him to protect Eternia as the true ruler and heir to the throne.
