"If I'd stayed in the warehouse you'd all have been killed," said Skinner. "We made a difference, didn't we?" Achilleus squeezed his hand. "You made a difference, cuz."

"And I lived," said Skinner. "For a while I lived. I saw the world. I lived among normal children, and I was normal." he said.

"You've always been normal," said Achilleus. "And I'm glad to have known you."

Skinner is one of the Twisted Kids. He has skin hanging off of him. This happened because one or both of his parents studied the disease and due to exposure to it, when Skinner was born he had loose skin.
