Urprox Screl is a character in First King of Shannara. He is a renowned weaponsmith who forged the Sword of Shannara.


Notably one of the finest smiths in the city of Dechtera during the Second War of the Races, Screl forged many weapons of great quality until he learned of the harm they were inflicting on people. He vowed to never make another weapon again, and stuck to that vow until he was visited by the Druid Bremen.

Bremen convinced Screl that by making one more weapon, he could in fact prevent harm and save many lives. With Bremen's aid, Screl infused the Eilt Druin into this new weapon's hilt, and it eventually became known as the Sword of Shannara.

After forging the Sword of Shannara, it is rumored that Screl changed his family name to Creel, which implies that Panamon Creel, Padishar Creel, and Damson Rhee are descendents of Urprox.
