He was the very first, the face that launched a thousand others. Immortality didn't exist before Silas and when he had become immortal, nature rebelled against him, causing others with his face to appear. A ripple effect, as some would call it. One of the most dangerous of all creatures that wander the earth, he was trapped in a stone prison for years, until he was freed.
Causing havoc for the townsfolk of Mystic Falls was the first things he did the moment he was free. Toying with both his doppelganger and the others was something the Immortal enjoyed immensely. And though he died, death could not hold him very long, and he's back once more to rain hell down on Mystic Falls.
❝ I fear no evil. The shadow is mine and so is the valley. ❞
