Viscount Silas Tunston

Silas Tunston was a ruler of the freehold of Grüenwald, who rebelled against King Corbray Crannock II of Elyria, This rebellion came to be known as the Tunston Uprising. Silas was later murdered on the orders of Furion Whitacre; in a massacre known as the "Night of the Red Knives."

Silas attempted to steal the Elyrian throne from the Crannock Dynasty, but was betrayed by another Elyrian noble named Furion Whitacre. After nearly four long and bloody years, King Corbray II was slain in the Battle of Wendonford and the uprising ended.

Soon after the battle, rebel forces captured Eron-Kelerath and prepared to coronate Silas as their new king. However, rival nobles led by Duke Furion Whitacre planned a bloody ambush within the castle on the night of the victory feast. This treacherous act came to be known as the ‘Night of the Red Knives." During the night; Silas, his entire family, and all his loyal vassals were butchered by Furion's men, within the castle walls, while they slept. After the massacre, Furion proclaimed himself king of Elyria.
