The Silence is crewed by mutes[4] and mongrels from throughout the known world.[1]

History

Euron Greyjoy aboard the Silence, by Allan Douglas © Fantasy Flight Games

Euron Greyjoy was exiled from the Iron Islands by Lord Balon Greyjoy after impregnating Victarion Greyjoy's third wife. Euron sailed east on a lengthy voyage,[1] and he claims to have sailed the Smoking Sea and seen Valyria.[5]

Recent Events

A Clash of Kings

Returning to Pyke aboard Myraham, Theon Greyjoy does not see Silence in port, so his uncle Euron must not be there to greet him.[3]

A Storm of Swords

The captain of the Myraham reports that Euron sailed the Silence into Lordsport soon after the death of Balon Greyjoy, King of the Isles and the North.[4] According to a semi-canon source, the Silence had earlier intercepted a galleas containing four warlocks of Qarth who were seeking Daenerys Targaryen,[6] and Euron claimed their dragon horn.[7]

A Feast for Crows

Lord Rodrik Harlaw tells Euron's niece, Asha, he heard the Silence returned the day after Balon's death. Euron uses treasures from its hold to gain ironborn support for the kingsmoot.[8]

Victarion Greyjoy spots the Silence at anchor in Nagga's Cradle.[1] Euron claims to have sailed the Smoking Sea.[5] Cragorn, one of the ship's crew, dies after blowing the dragon horn.[5]

Aeron Greyjoy was captured after the kingsmoot by Euron's mutes and chained up in the hold of the Silence. Several weeks later, Euron has Aeron and Falia Flowers bound to the prow of the Silence before the ironborn engage the ships of House Hightower and House Redwyne in battle.[9]

Quotes

Even at anchor Silence looked both cruel and fast.[1]

—thoughts of Victarion Greyjoy

On her decks a motley crew of mutes and mongrels spoke no word as the Iron Victory drew nigh. Men black as tar stared out at him, and others squat and hairy as the apes of Sothoros. Monsters, Victarion thought.[1]

—thoughts of Victarion Greyjoy

From Ib to Asshai, when men see my sails, they pray.[1]

Victarion's gaze was drawn to the iron figurehead at her prow, the mouthless maiden with the windblown hair and outstetched arm. Her mother-of-pearl eyes seemed to follow him. She had a mouth like any other woman, till the Crow's Eye sewed it shut.[5]
