Physical description

Skinwalkers kill humans or Fae and steal their skins to wear like clothing, so a skinwalker could appear as a human, fae, or demi-fae of any appearance or description. It is not known what they look like without any skins on.

Powers and abilities

Skinwalkers have supernatural strength and speed no matter what form they are in.

If they kill someone and skin them, they can adopt their appearance.



They appeared in Heir of Fire when Aelin and Rowan were training, and tried to kill them. Aelin barely escaped.

Aelin later led a Valg prince into a group of skinwalkers. The Valg prince managed to kill all of them, but not before taking wounds.


  • 4 skinwalkers is not enough to kill one Valg prince.
