The Good, The Bad, The Unusual...
The father of Silas, known to his friends and family as Rand McLaughlin, was an accounting genius, known world wide for his skill with numbers and money. Hired as an accounting junior at City hall early in his career, he soon rose to Chief Accountant and was thus in the perfect spot to catch the then current Mayors embezzling; this is what got him killed. The Mayor was exonerated of any part of the murder, but retired shortly after the incident, never to be heard from again.
The villainess Miss Match was eventually convicted of his murder-for-hire, and after a long court battle, all along claiming to be working alone, she was nevertheless sent to Alcatraz Super-max prison, where she remains, to this day.
