I tried watching the movie where the little guy was in. He was a bit too creepy for my liking, but looking at some of his pics, he also reminds me a little of Lexington from Gargoyles.
No offence to him.
I love SkekSil!
For the other Skeksis, I think they hated Sil because of his whimpering voice, well, Ekt had a voice that was nearly similar and they didn't complain about him. Ekt acted so much more feminine. Before I really understood them, I thought that Ekt was a girl Skeksis. But in a quote from Jim Henson on a old website that he thought of them as neither one sex, so it could be possible that the Skeksis could make themselves female too if they had to.
Chamberlain also has so much in common with the female hyena Shenzi from the Lion King. The smile, the cunning behavior, nearly the same soft voice. Both meat eaters. Both actually got hurt in their movies. Chamberlain on his hand by the shard, Shenzi on her face by Simba. Just some examples.
I like the contrast between SkekSil’s heavy clothing and Smeagol’s loincloth. I’m always looking for interesting new fantasy movies, so I’ve put The Dark Crystal on my to-watch list.
