* [[WasOnceAMan Was Once A Dwarf]]: The origins of the Skaven are ShroudedInMyth, but it is implied that the Skaven are to Dwarfs what the [[Characters/TotalWarWarhammerTheBeastmen Beastmen]] are to Humans. The two most popular explanations are that the first Skaven was Skavor, exiled son of the Ancestor God Gazul, or that the first Skaven were rats merged with the Dwarfs living in Kazvar, the city which is now Skavenblight.

* TheBrute: While he's hardly stupid, he's still a direct, temperamental individual who prefers leading armies and killing enemies in battle to the schemes and politicking of his fellow Skaven, a trait he ''utterly despises''. His master is more then fine with this, using Queek as an attack dog, and enforcer, sending him to take care of threats to his power that require no subtly.

* RedIsViolent: He wears armor the color of blood to reflect both [[HotBlooded his temperament]] and his [[BloodKnight favored activity]]. Notable, this is ''not'' a case of BringMyRedJacket, as Skaven have ''[[AlienBlood black]]'' blood. The color is of the blood of ''others''...
* SiblingMurder: He apparently devoured ''all'' of liter brothers after being born, but this is relatively normal Skaven behavior.
* SoProudOfYou: In a loading quote Queek's ParentalSubstitute Lord Gnawdwell invokes this (in what is possibly the nicest thing a Skaven has ever said of anyone else)

* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: There are plenty of times when the Skaven might have taken over the world but ruined it for themselves for one single reason. And that reason is because their society is one built almost entirely on betrayal, doublecrossing, dishonesty and backstabbing, which has a tendency to lead to important plots going down the drain at the worst possible times. Hell, the few times they have ever managed to remain united and loyal to each other for an extended period of time can be counted on two hands. In-game, this is reflected in public order problems and a loyalty meter for generals.

Added DiffLines:

* DirtyCoward: Ultimately just as much of a simpering bully as his children; in the end of the Cult of Sotek campaign, Sotek gives him such a sound thrashing that his newfound fear of the god causes ''all Skaven'' to be terrified of Lizardmen.

Added DiffLines:

** [[SubvertedTrope However]], his loyalty does have its limits, as when [[spoiler:he finds out that the Council of Thirteen, and by extension Gnawdwell, have decided to sacrifice the entirety of Clan Mors to summon the Horned Rat he revolts against it and his master. By the time of the battle at the Vortex, he's decided that a change in leadership is in order.]]
-->"[[spoiler:Clan Mors victorious, with me-me at it's head!]]"

Added DiffLines:

* EvilAlbino: The Regiment of Renown unit called the Council Guard, a unit of Stormvermin that are all albino.


** Like the other two would-be rulers of Karak Eight Peaks, Queek doesn't start his campaign in Karak Eight Peaks. This is explained in the Skaven intro by him being ordered by the Council of Thirteen to aid in their efforts to take the Great Vortex. In the ''Mortal Empires'' Campaign, however, he too is on a race to capture Karak Eight Peaks from whoever is holding it at the moment.

However, with the release of ''The Prophet and the Warlock'' and the implementation of the Undercity mechanic, [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration Clan Mors is granted a pre-existing undercity beneath Karak Eight-Peaks to represent the 'City of Pillars' that the clan rules.]]

Added DiffLines:

* DarthVaderClone: A powerful warrior with magical powers who serves one of the most powerful lords of the Underempire and requires a suit of PowerArmor to live after being scarred and crippled.


* CoDragons: In the quest for the Vortex, Queek Headtaker and Lord Strolk both work at the behest of the Council of Thirteen.

** DragonAscendant: Unlike Queek who has genuine loyalty to his master, Skolk has no love for Nurqlitch, and states in his intro he wants to usurp him from power. [[spoiler: Which he achieves by the ending.]]

** The dwarfs are ruled by a singular [[TheHighKing High King]] who almost always have his people's well-being as his highest priority, right next to settling grudges. The skaven are ruled by [[OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness the Council of Thirteen]], most of whom are more interested in squabbling among themselves and jockeying for positions of prominence instead of furthering skaven society in the slightest.

And wile the High King is perfectly willing to fight and die for his people on the battlefield, the members of the Council of Thirteen do almost anything in their power to ensure that they never have to do any fighting of their own.
