Feedin' Time

Silkie has also appeared in almost every Teen Titans Go! episode. As seen in the episode La Larva de Amor, Starfire loves Silkie so much that she attacks her friends when they fail to keep track of him. Also in the same episode, Silkie develops a relationship with a Mexican woman, known as Sonia Conchita Hernández, and saves her from Carlos.It is also shown in the episode, Driver's Ed, the berries that Starfire has are bad for him. They make his face swollen and puffy.


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