[edit] Biography

Skelzor is the skeletal remains of one of the members of Marco Polo's Lost Fleet, a group of 13 ships and 300 sailors that did not return from Polo's voyage, as they were swept away to Borneo by a huge tsunami.[1]

[edit] Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

In November 2009, treasure-hunter Nathan "Nate" Drake, antique-dealer Victor "Sully" Sullivan and explorer Chloe Frazer come across a skeleton in the hidden caverns of Borneo clutching the Phurba dagger, the supposed key to the lost city of Shambhala, which is said to house the legendary Cintamani Stone. Nate takes the Phurba from the skeleton, before he and his companions exit the caverns.[1]

Sometime after the encounter, Nate draws a picture of the skeleton in his journal, and christens the skeleton "Skelzor".[1]
