Silver is a male Lesser Sooty Owl, or Tyto multipunctata. He is a member of the weather interpretation chaw, and was rescued from the Great Downing. He and his friend Nut Beam , being young owlets, were always bragging about their relatives, much to the annoyance of Otulissa.
He and Nut Beam are with the Weather Chaw captained by Poot (cause the disappereance of Ezylryb). The Chaw must find refuge in The Spirit Woods thanks to a hurricane. He and Nut Beam dislike the idea of staying there cause they are afrid of scrooms.
Silver -among with Nut Beam and Percy- is sent in a mision before the Battle of Fire and Ice to put owlipoppen for the Operation Double Cross. Then, in the Battle he and Nut Bean had sustained injuires, and are helped by the Gluaxspeed units.
Silver and Nut Beam (along with Martin, Primrose and Clover) are named by Coryn as the leaders of the corps of messengers, also known as the Joss Corps or the Jossian Messengers. He sent a coded message to Coryn saying that the ember had been successfully retrieved from the palace of mists.
