Skriek, the cloaked ratling is an NPC found living in Lawenilothehl. Skriek sells different types of keys for a particular price. The price seems to vary between PCs, but female PCs always get a discount of half the usual selling price.
Skriek is quite evasive, but overall not a very dangerous opponent. Whilst the PC should be inclined to keep him alive anyway for his keys, it should be noted that for some reason he will become hostile if Hotzenplotz is attacked. Skriek can be lured out of Lawenilothehl quite easily if the PC wishes to kill Hotzenplotz, though.
Skriek will not sell keys to Chaos Knights, instead saying "Yer alternatives are locked, wisehead!"

Skriek doesn't seem to leave a corpse.
Surprisingly enough, this ratling doesn't shun shady company (although he will willingly follow you to a more lawful neighborhood). Even before you see him, you can hear the clinking sounds coming from the depth of his wide green cloak. He will offer you the key to the whole business, but won't be offended if you have no inclination to buy. Skriek has a sure eye for wealthy potential customers, so if you are a poor devil, you needn't talk to him.
