(Harry Silver - General Hospital)


Character Sketch

After Sonny Corinthos began appearing on General Hospital his mob ties were slowly revealed. In "the business", Harry Silver was his right hand man, running the gambling and doing mysterious things at warehouses with code names. The loyal Harry stuck with Sonny through think and thin. He came to Brenda's rescue after a shooting in Sonny's apartment. Harry had a girlfriend named Sybil, whom he brought to one of the fourth of July picnics.

Then disaster struck. In order to stay out of jail, Sonny married Lily Rivera. The vulnerable, lady-like, Lily awakened Harry's paternal instincts. His loyalty shifted to her. When he believed Sonny was leaving Lily for the persistent Brenda, he called Lily's father, Senor Rivera. But Rivera's hit on Sonny, went terribly wrong, killing Lily and her unborn child. Harry was deeply remorseful and begged Sonny's forgiveness. Sonny would not grant it, but did let him leave with his life.

Alas, that was not the last we saw of Harry. Stewing over Lily's death and his own guilt, Harry went not so quietly mad, plotting revenge against Sonny and Brenda. He sent some pictures of Lily to Brenda. Later he kidnapped Sonny and Brenda and threatened to kill them in an underground tunnel. They killed him with a rock and then made love near his stiffening body.
