Torsten's Skull Key is an item found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

It is a black decorative skull that serves as one of the keys used to seal the Dragon Priest Otar the Mad in his sarcophagus, the other being Saerek's Skull Key.


The skull key can be obtained by defeating Guardian Torsten who can be found inside Ragnvald Canal (this is also where Otar the Mad, a dragon priest makes his "lair"). He can be summoned by picking up his skull from the pedestral in the middle of the room.


  • Both keys may be removed and kept without incident after the sarcophagus has been opened.
  • Both keys look identical.
