Skales is a Serpentine from the Hypnobrai tribe. He was originally a warrior who overthrew the tribe's general, Slithraa, through the tradition of the Slither Pit. He is the father of Skales Jr. and the husband of Selma. Skales and his tribe were the first to be freed from his tomb by Lloyd Garmadon, who tried uniting the Serpentine to be his "servants" only for them to turn against him. Skales allied with the Constrictai, Fangpyre, and Venomari tribes, as well as Pythor, who sought to claim the Fangblades and awaken the Great Devourer. Pythor was successful in reviving the Devourer, which consumed him and Wu and began wreaking havoc on Ninjago. The Serpentine fled, upon which Skales declared himself to be the Snake King before Lord Garmadon seized the title. Skales allied with Garmadon despite opposing his leadership, before he betrayed Garmadon and deserted him on the Dark Island. Skales regained his title, leading the Serpentine underground to the Stone Army Tomb. There, the ancient Stone Army was revived through the Devourer's venom. The warriors fought against the Serpentine before escaping the tomb and sealing the snakes underground. The Serpentine managed to break out of the tomb, yet decided to make it their home, as they wished not to return above ground. When the Ninja ventured into the tomb in search of a special hard-drive, they found Skales, who introduced them to their new life. Skales and the rest of the Serpentine later helped evacuate the people of Ninjago underground during the Golden Master's assault. Sometime later, Skales and his allies also fought with the Elemental Masters against the Anacondrai Cultists.
