Silas Renn is a human, born on the shard of Esper (Alara). He is the heir of the House of Renn, one of the most influential families among the elite of Esper. He was also a member of the Seekers of Carmot and an enemy of Tezzeret. Silas is a clockworking adept.


When Tezzeret gained entry into the Vectis City Academy wishing to join the Seekers of Carmot, he was battled in a duel with Silas Renn.[1] Being defeated, Tezzeret's powers were considered substandard and not worthy to join the ranks of the Seekers. Silas was later granted the first ever created Etherium heart for becoming the youngest adept among the Seekers.[2]

An empowered Tezzeret later returned to the Sanctum Arcanum and his old rival Silas created an army of zombies and fought with Tezzeret. Silas lost the fight and had some of his etherium body parts removed.
