A Skylord is a sentient creature that flies in space, and whose prime or sole purpose in life appears to be to guide the souls of "fulfilled" humans to The Heart. At the time of the events described in the Void Trilogy no Skylord had been seen in Querencia for millennia. The last one to be seen was that which guided Rah and The Lady to The Heart, after Makkathran was first settled by humans.

In Abyss Beyond Dreams, a Skylord reveals that the object known as The Forest, containing Distortion Trees, is one of many parturition regions which births the Skylords.

In Abyss Beyond Dreams Laura Brandt describes the Skylord, saying “...It had some kind of solid core, a long ovoid shape. It wasn’t truly solid, she realized, but actually comprised of sheets of some crystalline substance warped into an extraordinary Calabi-Yau manifold geometry. The shimmering surfaces were alive with weird multicoloured patterns that flowed like liquid – or maybe it was the structure itself that was unstable. She couldn’t tell, for flowing around it was some kind of haze, also moving in strange confluences.”
