- Not to be confused with Skitter (spider) or .
Skitter is the scorpid pet of the sand troll Zathra, they are very close as the troll called her sister, the beast is often seen tackled on her body, looking and acting as her armor, and they communicate by clicking tongues. She is three foot long and has black markings.
Zathra sent her to track Aramar Thorne across Feralas. When they finally caught him in Dire Maul, the boy escaped on the wyvern One-Eye and Malus commanded to stop them. Skitter leaped at an ogre who was pointing spear at her mistress, so that Zathra could fire crossbow bolts at the direction of the boy, but hitting the druid Thalyss Greyoak who saw the danger.
She remained with Zathra as the Hidden were looking for Aram and his group throughout Thousand Needles and Tanaris. She fought with her mistress in the Thunderdrome, being caught in Murky's webbed hands as she was about to attack Hackle. She stung the murloc several times, but her poison had no effect on him. He held her above his head, and ultimately raced toward Throgg. The confused scorpid lashed out and stung the ogre. She was then caught by Taryndrella's vines.
