Silas, born 17 March 1948, is the son of Nancy Blissett. Silas became a journalist and married a woman named Joan. They had two children, Heidi and Wendy. Silas told his family that Joan was murdered by an intruder she disturbed, and that he'd found her body, but it was later revealed that Silas had discovered that Joan was having an affair with her neighbor and Silas killed her, making it look as though she'd been killed by a burglar. Silas faked a heart attack after killing Joan, although it was later treated as a false alarm by the local hospital. He moved to Hollyoaks, where he planned to rid the village of women of low virtue. Before his capture, he killed four women, the last victim being his daughter Heidi. This was an accident, and Silas showed true remorse.
