Was hired by a man named Alvah Bradley to kill the hero Red Wolf (Johnny Wakely). Bradley wanted Red Wolf out of the way because of his dedication to the protection of the Native Americans.
Bradley owned The Checkerboard Spread, a place that held twenty thousand cattle on it's graze-land. He planned to also purchase twenty thousand yearlings, all of which were going to need a massive amount of drinking water. Close to his ranch, there was a large body of water, it was however, located on land that was sacred to the Cheyenne people, a place called Pah-Pana. The place where their young men went to fast and dream what it was that must go into their medicine pouches. He knew Red Wolf would never allow the land to be taken from the Cheyenne people.
Bradley said he would pay Silver five thousand dollars to kill Red Wolf, and Silver agreed to take the job. During their first encounter, Silver shot Red Wolf and believed him to be dead. However, Red Wolf's medicine bag, filled with stone and iron blocked the bullet. Silver was then hired by Bradley to help take the land from the Cheyenne people.
The plans were stopped by Red Wolf and both men were arrested.
