God-King Skovald is the king of the vrykul on the Broken Isles. He rules the lands of Stormheim and has recently allied himself with the Burning Legion during their third invasion of Azeroth. He has been tasked by his demonic masters to retrieve one of the ancient titan relics known as the Pillars of Creation - the Aegis of Aggramar. He has a mount named Vaengir.


Jarl Skovald battling his mother.

Gul'dan approached Jarl Skovald with a choice: join the Legion and gain ultimate power, or see his people destroyed. Swayed by Gul'dan's promises of conquest and glory, Skovald eagerly accepted. In return, Gul'dan demanded that Skovald bring him the  [Aegis of Aggramar] from the Halls of Valor.[2]

In his bid to be ruler over Stormheim, Skovald first joined his brothers in murdering his father. The brothers then turned on each other, with Skovald's blade proving to be the fastest. As his oldest brother Voldgar would refer to him as a runt, Skovald may have been the youngest of the four, or simply the smallest.[3] He then fought his mother last at Kingsfall Pass, by this time having pledged himself and his followers to the Legion and been empowered by fel magic. Queen Bretta, disgusted with Skovald's actions, disowned him as her son before dying, to which the Jarl replied that he was her king.[4]

In his quest to gain access to the Halls of Valor, he perverts the ancient trials that open the gates. During the Trial of Might, he shatters Yotnar instead of besting him and attempts to destroy Aggramar's Vault so that no one else can know the criteria for the other trials. For the Trial of Will, he opts to enslave the Thorignir. For the Trial of Valor, he uses the Bonespeakers to attempt to enslave the souls of the ancient rulers of Stormheim, forcing them to give their blessing.

With the adventurer's efforts to keep up with the God-King, Havi tells them to save an important asset from a previous trial to end Skovald's reign once and for all. Atop the Gates of Valor, both challengers fought and eventually the God-King used his fel magic to end the confrontation for he grew tired of them. He exclaims that the Aegis will be his by right and there's nothing to stop him.

Within the Halls of Valor, Skovald came into the Hall of Glory to see that the heroes were successful in claiming the Aegis. He demanded that Odyn acknowledge his claim to the Aegis, a protest that Odyn said came too late. Skovald attempted to claim the Aegis by force then, but was killed, declaring in his final breath that all his plans had been brought to ruin.
