That's because in the flashback scenes of OBW he's Horn, when he first gets moved into Silk's body he's Horn because Silk has suicided, when Pig  gets the eye Silver Silk is removed from Pig and placed in Silk's body and then he is Silkhorn only for the composition of OBW, then Horn mostly leaves at the end and he is Silk with only a small residue of Horn left, not enough to even relate the flashback stuff that happened on Green to Horn entirely in 1st person, though he still denies being Silk.  SILKHORN is the narrator of OBW who is writing.

But in the cast of characters of _In Green’s Jungles_ it says: “INCANTO, the name by which the former Rajan of Gaon is known in BLANKO.”


He moves on.  And whatever his nature, it changes over time.
