Skult is an elderly magician who's really the god Loki in disguise in Age of Mythology. He helps Gargarensis upon his arrival in the Norselands. When the heroes first encounter him, he claims to be able to help them unite the Norse tribes against Gargarensis, and gives them a flag which he claims the Norse tribes will rally under. When the heroes reveal the flag to the feuding tribes, however, they become enraged and attack them. Upon Arkantos questioning Skult, he laughs at him and escapes by transforming into ravens. Arkantos is afterward informed by Reginleif that the flag is that of Folstag's band of frost giants, who are notorious pillagers, and that this was a favorite trick of Loki's.
Skult also plays the role as the main antagonist of The Golden Gift. When Brokk and Eitri plans to forge a mighty Battle Boar as a gift to the god Freyr, Skult approaches each of them, and convinces them that the other is trying to finish the boar themselves, and take all credit. Brokk and Eirti fight over the boar, but when it is finally assembled, Skult reveals himself as Loki, and steals the boar which vanishes in thin air alongside him. Brokk and Eitri join forces, and manages to win the boar back, but as they approach Skult, he vanishes as his signature ravens.
