"Fear, hate, sorrow, these are causes of Silent's birth & distribution. Arthur's Silent was different. Nihilistic, but not aggressive. Nihilist Shinen sings of helplessness of God of Earth. Everything rots away someday. Generally, such Shinen's infectivity is weak. But her existence strengthened its Reality. It's rare, but anxiety & fear in one's heart has taken shape."
- Atsuki Saijo comparing regular Silents with Lil's Silent
Silent is a parasite that is born when a person experiences sadness and/or hate. it then feeds on their negative emotions and forces them to commit crimes. FORT works to eradicate it. Atsuki Saijo and Liu Yee are in Kisaragi to find an Original Silent.
Mind parasite. The darkness once called "evil spirits" and "demons". It was discovered to be parasitic and was named Silent, being a "quiet terror". Silent enters into the Shinen of living beings and finally hijacks their minds. Several types exist, and all eat at the mind, but effects and infection methods vary.
Originals are the original strain of Silent. Originals have the power to change and control others's shinen, infecting them as well. Then the infected patients enter a part of Original and primary corrosion begins. Original and it's parts are called Silent.
Infectee Silents Edit
"Once infect, the infectee will go crazy again. Why can't you wait for me? For Silent infectees, you should know the proper procedure already. You must eat their mind, not erase their Silent. If he'd died, we'd just have one less infectee. Check his studio, you'll see. The Silent will return without eradicating the source."
- Liu Yee lecturing him on Atsuki's actions
Infectee Silents are parts of the Original Silent that infect other people. They change and influence people who come in contact with the Original host. They alter the hosts' psyche, normally to that of the Original Silent. A Lux Pain user can erase the Silent of the infectee in order to liberate his mind. That person will return to normal, but can return to his infected state should the source of his infection remain active.
If a Silent is erased from an infectee, it will return to the source or origin of the infection; normally being the Original Silent and its host. However, there are cases where the source of his infection can be something other than the Original Silent. An example is in Arthur Mays' case, the source of his infection was the painting he made of Lil, the Original Silent host.
