An elf of no obvious distinction, except that he happens to be in the right (sic) place at the right time to take over when High Commander Yenhael meets his comeuppance in the fracas in Senilis' rest home. As yet we don't know anything about him or his attitude toward this ill-advised quest, except that he appears to get a bit of Yenhael's gore on him, courtesy of Concussion's hammer.
Soon thereafter, he's the first one to get in the way of the burst of magical energy (or, if you prefer, "god sperm") resulting when Senilis is released. However, the two simply meet and go on their respective ways, although Silman appears somewhat the worse for the experience. This gives Chicanery and Nookie a chance for a little exposition: elves are "hard coded" not to be able to interact with Senilis "that way" -- whatever that means.
The elves on the Senilis quest seem to be more or less interchangeable, apart from Yenhael. There's every chance that Silman may have shown up earlier in the melee, but the "Introduction" in the sidebar reflects the first time we hear his name used. There's a sneaking feeling that they're all equally doomed anyway, regardless of what their names are.
