The Torment of the Bats was a punishment ritual of the Skeksis using the Sceptre of the Bats. During the Age of Power, after Thurma had broken a shard from the Crystal of Truth, it brought back the Skeksis and Mystics. Eager to resume their roles as the Lords of Thra, the skekUng decided the first order of business was to punish skekSil who they blamed for their past defeat. Seeing that the Shaft of Fire was blocked and filled with treasure, throwing him into the pit was no longer an option, skekZok snatched back his sceptre from the Crystalline Eminence and summoned the Crystal Bats to attack the Chamberlain.[1]
