From the TCG
This section concerns content exclusive to the World of Warcraft TCG, and thus is not necessarily canon.
- Silas Darkmoon may be a reference to Samson from the television series Carnivàle, played by Michael J. Anderson. Both characters are leaders of traveling carnivals, both dress similar and use a walking stick/cane, and both have similar stature. (Anderson has Osteogenesis Imperfecta, which made him very short.)
- His name may also be a reference to Silias Green from New Orleans.
