Skobbels was Derpulies' assistant in Trials Of Derpulies, who helped with the challenges. At the end of Trials Of Derpulies, Skobbels helps the heroes defeat Derpulies, and it appears that his intentions are good. This results in him taking over Derpulies's Kingdom, and thus beginning Trials Of Skobbels. He takes Derpulies's place as the head of the world, and he hands out challenges just as Derpulies used to.
