|Featured in||Avataria #1|
Silverstein was a famous warhero from the battle of Cal'thos, but after his death in the war, he was chosen to be the mortal host of Blood Arc, and to live on. He joined the forces from Reyvmadir, and helped fight the demons. His current status is unknown.
Silverstein was leading an army of warriors in the war in the Outlands and Cal'thos 20 years before the events of Avataria #1, and died 10 years after the war. However, Blood Arc cursed him to be his mortal host and thus to live on, so he cut off all contact with other people for another 10 years, except meeting Issranda at an unknown point.
After the ten years, he wandered into a mountain valley, where he entered general Ratava's camp. General Ratava, who was driven by an unusual hatred caused by the demon-virus, told Silverstein to help attack Kallrog's men. However, Silverstein decided to stay in Ratava's camp, and was soon attacked by goblins. He fought bravely, and killed many of the small creatures, but was eventually hurt too much to continue in the end. One of Ratava's soldiers, blinded by his evil inner demon, started to channel a thread of fel energy in order to infect Silverstein with the demon-virus as well. But it didn't work, instead it gave enough power for Blood Arc to return.
However, his new allies decided to keep Silverstein in their army, even though he bore the curse of the Dark God, and that would soon appear to be a smart decision, when Blood Arc sensed an approaching demon army, he pulled up Dun Gruznok, an ancient dwarven fortress from deep below the ground's surface, which they used to make a defensive stand against the demons. They successfully defeated the attacking demons, and decided to journey back towards Reyvmadir.
However, on their way back, they were ambushed several times by demon scouts, and finally the Dark Army 5th Branch appeared, with Kakuslor in front. Blood Arc was weakened greatly after a short fight with the demonic Hume-God, and had to give back control to Silverstein. He managed to stab Kakuslor in the shoulder with his blades, but the evil Hume-God threw Silverstein into the ground with massive force, and he had to stay out of the rest of the battle. Luckily, general Ratava killed Kakuslor, and they could all resume the journey back towards Reyvmadir the next day.
It is unknown what happened to Silverstein since then.
