"Don't worry about me. I'll be okay, no matter what happens. (...) Getting me will slow them down. Protect Iris. Keep her safe. (...) But no matter what Huck did, don't be the monster. Elton, you believed in me when I didn't. You're my best friend. Thank you. Go before they see you."
—Silas to Elton and Percy, shortly before being captured by the Civic Republic Military.[src]

Silas Plaskett is one of two tritagonists and a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead: World Beyond. He was a resident of the city of Omaha until he was accused of committing a violent offense which resulted him into being transferred to the Campus Colony to serve as a janitor.

Overview

Silas is a shy, soft-spoken, hulking seventeen-year-old who works in the community, essentially as a janitor. A year ago, he transferred there from the nearby surviving city, and rumors of his violent past soon followed. Some started calling him a monster, others shunned him completely. When Silas learns about Iris and Hope's cross-country expedition, he jumps at the chance to join them, eager to prove he's not the person everyone thinks he is.[1]

Pre-Apocalypse

Nebraska

Silas was born in 2003 and raised in Nebraska. Silas had a large family growing up - including a grandmother who taught him to sew and took him to ballroom dance classes when he was four years old. He also had an uncle, Marco Voci.

Post-Apocalypse

Omaha, Nebraska

In the fall of 2010, Silas survived the outbreak and apocalypse when he was seven years old, along with his parents and uncle. In time, they came to join the city of Omaha with his mother and father while his uncle stayed in Lincoln, Nebraska, a satellite colony in Nebraska State University, and worked as an engineer.

When he was 16 years old, he had a violent altercation with his abusive father. His father began to choke him, resulting in Silas fighting back and badly beating his father. Gary died of his injuries and reanimated, forcing Silas to put him down in front of his own mother. Silas' mother then testified against him in court, but the death was ruled self-defense and he was transferred to the Campus Colony to work as a janitor and gardener and lived with his uncle, who fiercely defended him. Due to the rumors about his violent altercation, he has been shunned and became the product of other rumors.

While many shunned him, Iris Bennett, adopted daughter of Doctor Leopold Bennett, ignored the rumors and saw the best of Silas, and reaffirmed that every family has something going on. Intentional or not, Iris left behind a poem entitled "The Tyger and the Lamb" that Silas found touching and kept it for himself.

Relationships

Iris Bennett

While many shunned him, people at the Campus Colony either ignored him or talked behind his back, Iris ignored the rumors and saw the best of Silas, and reaffirmed that every family has something going on. Intentional or not, Iris left behind a poem entitled The Tyger and the Lamb that Silas found touching and kept it for himself - possibly developing a crush on Iris. When the Bennett's girls wanted to go look for their father, Silas jumped on the chance to leave with them. After finding a school the two awkwardly danced together, and when cornered by a walkers Silas violently kills them. Silas was worried that Iris was scared of him, which she tells him she not.

Silas was shown to be jealous over Iris talking with Percy.

Elton Ortiz

Elton is one of a few people in Campus Colony that trusts Silas and thinks of him as a friend, not judging him on his past. Their friendship was a little stained after Silas hit him by accident in a fit of rage, however Elton held nothing against him and quickly moved on.

Elton is the one person who believes in Silas' innocence after he is believed to have killed Tony. Elton decides to leave the group to be with Silas, calling Silas his family. Silas later calls Elton his best friend before turning himself over to CRM to buy Elton and Percy time to escape.
