Durn is a leader of the skaa underground in Urteau on Scadrial.[1]

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Durn intentionally presents a sickly appearance, a common beggar's tactic to garner more coins out of sympathy. His disguise also allows him to go about the city unnoticed.[2] He walks with a false limp and a stooped posture, and his hair is pulled out in patches.[2][1] He wears a cloak, and his overall appearance is "ragged".[2][1] He is a large man[2] and Spook calls him ugly, although he says it in a somewhat joking manner.[3] Upon close inspection, Durn actually has good hygiene.[2]

Attributes and Abilities[edit]

He uses sticks to drum on the ground, inaudible to anyone but Spook with his tin-enhanced senses.[2] Spook refers to Durn as an unfulfilled master musician, as he had perfect rhythm.[2][4] He also enjoys fine wine, as Spook could smell it on his breath.[2]


He introduced Spook to the skaa of Urteau and helped with the preparations to overthrow the Citizen.[3]
