You're just so... accountant-y.
I've got 210 inhumations to my name across a 22 year, six month and four day kill streak. Does that sound remotely accountant-y to you?

Lady Sybil Ramkin and Inigo Skimmer, "The What?"

Inigo Skimmer. also known as the Duke of Stab, is a character on BBC America's The Watch. He is an assassin with the Assassins' Guild of Ankh-Morpork and is apparently highly successful, claiming to have 210 inhumations to his name.


Acting on assignment, he killed the parents of Lady Sybil Ramkin, leaving behind a "Receipt of Legal Inhume" but also leaving behind a mask in the process. Many years later, Ramkin tracks him down in the headquarters of the Assassins' Guild while seeking the sword Gawain for the City Watch. She discovers that Skimmer has been engaging in tax fraud and gets the members of the Watch to arrest him.

Background Information[]

Skimmer appears to be based on the character of the same name who appears in "The Fifth Elephant", a bookish man who claims to be a clerk from Havelock Vetinari's office, who is in fact an Assassin detailed to protect Vimes and Lady Sybil.
