"I don't wanna be what everybody thinks I am here."
—Silas explaining why he wishes to join the Endlings.[src]

Silas Plaskett is a main character 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

Location Unknown

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

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 father. His father began to choke him, resulting in Silas fighting back by beating him to death. His own mother then testified against him in court, but instead of being imprisoned 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.
