All quotes by or about the Skaven race go here.

A

"All decent folk find the common rat repulsive. Harbinger of disease, it scavenges on our waste-heaps and frightens our children. How immeasurably worse then is the foul Skaven - standing on its hindlegs in foul parody of a human. Rats as tall as man, and blessed with the most vile intellect and cunning. They are the dark side of our souls, come to destroy us for our sins."

+++ Albrecht of Nuln. Burned at the stake, IC 1301 for pernicious declamation[1] +++


"Your doom is coming, man-things."

+++ Anon[2] +++

B

"Skaven society is a tyranny moderated by assassination."

+++ Bagrian, an Ancient Scholar who was assassinated by the Skaven. All copies of this quote were destroyed. Except (as of yet) this one.[3] +++


M

"Yes-yes Warlord Krizk - for a treaty-pledge of just 200 Slaves, 12 claws of warptokens, a Breeder and certain alliances and pledges, one of our very-very finest Clan Moulder Rat Ogres can be yours..."

+++ Clan Moulder Haggle-master[4] +++

N

"Sometimes - you might think I'm as crazy as a doom prophet - but sometimes I think those rats are watching me. You know, spying like. Sigmar preserve me, but I don't like it much. I'd hate to see it if the rodents ever got their way. Still, I get paid for catching a pole-full. Give us another one, Bessie."

+++ Rat-catcher Ludwig Nusbaum addresses the other customers after drinking too much ale in the tavern[5] +++

Q

"Kill-Kill!"

+++ Warlord Queek Head-Taker [6] +++

S

"All tunnels lead to Skavenblight"

+++ A common Skaven phrase alluding to the nexus of the Under-Empire. The phrase is also commonly used when admitting an exposed act of treachery. The Skaven see bretayal as inevitable, and the only regret of such acts is getting caught before succeeding.[7] +++
