As Dan'l also wrote in that post:

I agree. Malrubius could not be Silk in actuality. Malrubius may have been
some sort of mentor to Sev, but that's not saying much; Hitler also liked
dogs. Malrubius was a Master in a guild that hurt and maimed and killed
people for a living. Silk was much nearer the opposite end of the moral
spectrum. He could never have done those things to people; it's just not his
nature. Hell, he thought he had sinned when he "killed" a talus, a stupid
_machine_ that was trying to kill him.
