After the humans return to Welkin, he gives up his place as Lord of Thistle Hall. He and his band continue to live in Halfmoon Wood. Sylver's best friend is Icham and he admires Miniver's and Scirf's ability to read. Sylver feels responsible when one of his band dies and he is a good, kind leader. He understands his band's feelings well and loves a good adventure.
