--Silkie's first words

Silkie (Larva M3-19) is a main character in Teen Titans Go!. He is Starfire's pet, but seems to have average relationships with all of the Titans. His voice and noises are voiced by Tara Strong.


Silkie was created as Larva M3-19 by Killer Moth for use in an army of giant mutant moths to overthrow and dominate Jump City. However, Killer Moth had to get rid of certain parts of his plan, when his spoiled daughter Kitten, angry about her recent abandonment by her boyfriend "Fang", decided to blackmail Robin into becoming her date for her Junior Prom. The plan failed spectacularly, and upon the destruction of the moth control device by Robin, all the mutant moths reverted from their adult state into their larva state. Beast Boy secretly took Silkie home to the tower, and gave him to Starfire when she found it out.

In La Larva de Amor, he is left with the other Titans when Starfire goes on a vacation out of the the Titans Tower. He ends up going to Mexico on a bucket through a chain of events. He ends up meeting a woman named Sonia Conchita Hernández. Sonia brings Silkie around and calls him her new 'boyfriend'. Her ex, named Carlos, finds out, and sets to kill him. However, Silkie easily defeats him. The next day, he heads back to the tower, and leaves Sonia to see Starfire.


Silkie has also appeared in most episodes of the Teen Titans Go! series. As seen in the episode "La Larva de Amor," Starfire loves Silkie so much that she would attack her friends when they fail to keep track of him. Also in the same episode, Silkie develops an extremely one-sided relationship with a Mexican woman known as Sonia Conchita Hernández, and saves her from Carlos, a Mexican crime lord. It is shown in the episode, "Driver's Ed," that certain berries which Starfire collects are bad for him. They make his face swollen and puffy, as if he was having an allergic reaction.

Physical Appearance

Silkie is a small, pink, and mutant moth larva with light green eyes. Most of the time, Silkie has his eyes closed. He has six nub-like legs and two antennae. He also seems to have a spot-like design on his body.

Inside his mouth, he has pointed yellow teeth, resembling that of a dog's. However, there are several rows of them, seen in Little Buddies during Cyborg's "Little Buddy Showdown". Silkie has the appearance of a large maggot.
