Silas chathead.png

Silas is the former caretaker of the Fremennik Lighthouse. During his time as caretaker, he heard the sounds of dagannoth in the lighthouse's basement. He became convinced that the sounds meant that he had been chosen to join with them in the nearby Northern Sea.[1] As time went by, he grew distrustful and distant from the nearby Fremennik settlements, considering them unenlightened and interfering.[2] His sleep pattern changed, favouring nocturnal activity in order to better serve the creatures he had become obsessed with.[3] Eventually, he began wondering if he was a dagannoth in human skin and disappeared shortly afterwards, leaving his nephew Jossik to tend to the lighthouse.[4][5]

He was found washed up on the shore of Lunar Isle and was taken being taken care of by Baba Yaga at the start of Blood Runs Deep. After some dream therapy, in which Baba Yaga and the player went into his dream to free him, he recovered and left to places unknown. It is not known at this time whether or not he is still loyal to the Dagannoth Mother.
