A Skaze appears in the Postscript of Elantris in the 10th Anniversary Edition. The scene shows Hoid having a conversation with one by a pool (possibly the Pool where Elantrians go to "die").

Hoid was trying to become an Elantrian but had failed. He was still happy with the result as according to him it meant there were still mysteries left in the world for him to uncover. He then hopped into the Pool and disappeared.

 

In sharp contrast to the Seons, which are floating orbs of light with a glowing Aon at their centre, the Skaze are described as being dark. They seem to suck in the light around them, with indistinct edges that blend into the air. They have a ring around their sphere with a pattern of misty symbols.

Like the Seons are Splinters of Devotion (Aona), the Skaze are Splinters of Dominion (Skai).

Since skaze are splinters of Dominion, they have a lust for power wich drove them to participate in Fjordell politics and they are now important there.

This is an excellent explanation and almost exactly what I was going to say!
