TekTih was the original urSkek identity of skekTek and urTih. He taught Aughra all the movements of the skies and helped her build her observatory and in return she taught him all she knew about rocks and even to the secrets of the metals.[1]

He was not reformed at the end due to skekTek's, and by extension, urTih's death. The former's laboratory animals rebelled against him while trying to drain Kira's essence and during the struggle, he fell into the center of the planet and burned to death.
