Trivia About Quiet Talks with Ultimately, she survived, although with severe enough injuries to force herself to be infected with a mutant strain of the "the one that covers" parasites used to create the Parasite Unit which managed to repair most of her physical damage, grant her superhuman speed, perception, durability, longevity, phasing and invisibility.
It also allowed her to breathe through her skin and take in nutrients via photosynthesis or small showers, effectively removing the need for food, drinking or breathing. In , Skull Face had Quiet deployed to Afghanistan where she was tasked with eliminating Soviet officers who were against the development of Metal Gear Sahelanthropus. She eventually caught sight of Venom Snake and proceeded to open fire on him, initiating a duel. During the flight back to Mother Base, Quiet uncuffed herself and seemingly escaped from the chopper, although she secretly stayed invisible while still inside the helicopter.
Before arriving at Mother Base, the chopper came under attack by a pursuing fighter jet; Quiet then revealed herself, took aim, and fired a single sniper round through the closed cockpit of the enemy aircraft, killing the pilot and saving Venom Snake's life in the process. Despite this heroic act, Miller still didn't trust her, and gave orders to prevent a landing if Quiet was still on board.
However, she effectively surrendered herself into Diamond Dogs custody. Despite Miller's insistence that they kill her due to her being too much of a liability, Ocelot and Venom Snake instead decided to lock her up. While Miller was extremely prejudiced against her, Ocelot was willing to let her prove her worth. Because she was unable to speak English, she could not communicate with any of Diamond Dog personnel. Messages from her often had to be conveyed through actions.
During her days at Mother Base, she was cooperative with anything Diamond Dogs requested of her; the only exception was that she refused to wear clothes, and anyone who tried to put clothes on her ended up injured to the point of needing breathing tubes. Ocelot purposely locked her in a cell with a lock which he described as "a joke" to bait her into revealing her motives. This proved to be pointless as she changed her mind about wiping out Diamond Dogs.

Ocelot later suggested Snake take her along on missions to form a bond, hoping it would make her break her silence as she refused any form of communication, even writing. Later on, she snuck out of her cell to accompany Venom Snake on a mission, only to be caught by Miller, who was dead set against the idea.
Ocelot, however, decided she could prove extremely useful in the field. Some time later, Quiet attacked a Diamond Dog personnel for unknown reasons, since she couldn't communicate as to why. Two operatives came to the personnel's aid only to be beaten down by her. Venom Snake intervened and subdued her, with the help of Ocelot, who gave her a sedative.
She was taken back to her cell, with Venom Snake telling Ocelot that if she were attempt to escape again, "there [wouldn't] be a third [time]. After destroying and recovering Metal Gear Sahelanthropus, Quiet stood next to Miller during his speech, alongside the other leading members, Venom Snake and Ocelot. At some point, she also ended up retrieving a treasured item of the Mbele Squad , a necklace that had formerly belonged to their leader, Shabani , after it had ended up discarded into a vat of chlorine disinfectant it was implied that Eli had discarded the necklace , although at the cost of having significant portions of her skin burned from exposure to the gas.
After undergoing an MRI, it was revealed that Quiet was the assassin who had been sent to kill Snake after he awoke in Cyprus, as they found a Star-of-Bethlehem petal inside the burnt remains of her own lungs. The medical team also discovered that she had a strain of the vocal cord parasite, and the only person who could have applied the strain which had replaced her skin and internal organs, other than Code Talker , was Skull Face.
Miller demanded that she be executed, but Ocelot calmed him down, pointing out that if she had been sent to kill them all, she would have done so already.
Ocelot also stated that she worked for Venom Snake as she was in love with the legend. At this observation, Quiet merely watched Venom Snake and did not indicate denial. Venom Snake concurred with Ocelot, much to Miller's chagrin. He deduced that she must have decided not to speak, or even write, English in order to avoid infecting Mother Base with the strain of the parasite inside her. He then freed Quiet from her restraints. After the three men left, Code Talker approached her and spoke to her in Navajo. Replying back in Navajo, Quiet revealed that Skull Face intended to use her as his ace in the hole against Venom Snake and his army by having herself be captured so that she could be taken to Mother Base to infect everyone with the parasite and she had been given the English strain.
Explaining this to Code Talker, Quiet declared fiercely that she would never speak English again and risk another pandemic. After a second parasite outbreak occurred on Mother Base, this time due to a mutation of the parasites within the previously infected personnel, Quiet believed she could be a risk despite keeping silent and left Diamond Dogs.
She was forcibly clothed when taken prisoner, which slowly suffocated her and removed her abilities. She tried to escape but was caught and nearly drowned by one of her captors, who then attempted to rape her, removing the pants they put on her. Now able to breathe once more and her abilities restored by the water, Quiet retaliated, mutilating and slaughtering him and the other soldiers. Venom Snake had been trying to track her down to take her back to Mother Base, arriving just in time to catch the final moments of her escape. Venom intended to free her but Quiet disposed of the soldiers herself, returning with weapons for herself and Venom Snake.
The two then worked together to take down a massive tank unit that had arrived in response to Quiet's escape. Unfortunately, she was badly injured by a tank round and knocked unconscious.
Venom Snake attempted to carry her out of harm's way through a fearsome sandstorm. He protected her and prevented Quiet from alerting a nearby convoy of their presence when she regained consciousness. Along the way, while hiding from the overwhelming number of enemies on their tail, he was bitten by a cobra, causing him to lose consciousness, both of them now blacked out and resting behind a rock. Thanks to the sandstorm, they were able to remain hidden and the convoy and patrolling troops moved on. Quiet woke up first when she heard Pequod attempting to contact Venom Snake through his radio, explaining that he wouldn't be able stay at the LZ much longer due to near-zero visibility in the sandstorm.
Quiet replied in Navajo, which Pequod didn't understand and thought was just a radio problem. Thus, Quiet had no choice but to reply in English, much to Pequod's surprise, and guide the chopper to their location. Eventually, Venom Snake was given an antivenom and regained consciousness, but Quiet was nowhere to be found. He went to search for her by tracking her footprints, only finding a cassette tape hanging from a tree branch. He put the tape into his iDroid and began to listen:.
Afterwards, Code Talker contacted Venom Snake to summarize Quiet's actions and inquired as to why she did not release the parasites on Mother Base.
Code Talker stated that "We [wouldn't] hear it from her. Quiet, as an XOF operative, was an extremely efficient and ruthless individual, viciously murdering two innocent hospital personnel without hesitation or remorse. She was also very dedicated to her job and was willing to do anything to get her mission done, taking the horrific pain of being lit completely aflame for several seconds before finally succumbing to the agony. She also fought as relentless as she could, even attempting suicide, when Venom Snake attempted to capture her.
She was also able to withstand continued torture while barely making a sound.
Quiet Talks Master
However, the more time she spent at Mother Base, the more she began to change into a more caring and moral individual. After her capture, she was mostly indifferent and apathetic towards her situation but took an interest in Snake. Upon reaching maximum bond level, it's implied that Quiet developed romantic feelings for Snake, and in turn became a more benevolent person.
Regardless, Quiet still had the capability of being a cruel person if she believed it appropriate, attacking two Diamond Dog soldiers, the first for trying to clothe her, the second for being infected with a vocal cord parasite. She was also perfectly willing to kill anyone on Snake's command, and savagely massacred an entire squad of enemies after one of them attempted to rape her after nearly drowning her. Before undergoing parasite treatment, Quiet was shown to be a fairly skilled combatant and assassin, as she was shown to kill her foes with extreme efficiency and deadly precision.
This was best demonstrated with her killing the doctor and nurse without even alerting them beforehand, as well as overpowering Ishmael with minimal effort. She was also demonstrated to have a strong sense of willpower, as after being set alight by Ishmael, she still tried to continue on to fulfill her mission of killing Venom Snake. It was only when the flames where further fueled that she was overwhelmed by the pain and fell out a window, while beforehand she was unfazed by any of Ishmael's attacks. After undergoing the parasite treatment, the language of the parasite being English, Quiet developed a large quantity of new superhuman abilities while black markings appeared on her skin, primarily around her eyes.
These blotchy markings could vanish and reappear either at will or at a time where she was using her powers and as a response to insults, intense dangers or near death. Similar markings appeared on Code Talker, notably when Quiet first spoke to him in Navajo, his native language. The mutant strain of the Parasite Unit "the one that covers" parasite that she had in her skin as well as her vocal cords gave very similar abilities to those of the Parasite Unit itself, such as enhanced strength, mobility and speed in exchange for nourishing the parasite. She also had inhuman levels of resilience, tolerance, stamina, durability and a certain degree of cellular regeneration common amongst the Skulls, allowing her to survive gunfire and explosions unless she suffered repeated injury or was directly hit more than once.
Her durability was such that she was able to survive a several foot drop, which was best demonstrated upon her arrival on Mother Base, where, due to Miller blocking off Pequod's heliport to ensure Quiet can't set foot on Mother Base, she simply jumps out and then lands behind the soldiers, causing a slight quake upon landing without any injuries.
She also had slightly less resilience compared to the Skulls as two shots to the head could kill her. Also, her abilities were dependent on her being exposed to water and direct sunlight, the latter of which allowed her to recover almost instantly, even from suffocation. Her own strain also gave the ability to camouflage not only her skin, but also phase in and out of visible spectra, as her clothes can also appear invisible.
She could also apparently use some limited form of intangibility, allowing her to escape from restraints while her powers were active. This appeared to be the parasites manipulating her density, mass, or state of matter, allowing her to become partly gaseous. This particular trait was common amongst the Skulls, no matter the type, and it seemed to allow them to move at greater speeds that humanly possible. Her visual acuity was such that she could spot individual blades on a helicopter when they were at full speed, which could combine with her speed to allow her to even shoot in between them.
Ocelot also remarked on her depth perception, saying that both of her eyes were "master eyes" in terms of focusing on a target, or multiple targets. Her strain left her mind intact, rendering her far more effective and deadly than the Parasite Unit themselves. Due to her injuries, the parasites compensated for her burned epidermis, giving her the ability to "breathe" through her skin rather than her lungs, negating any problems that could come from sway that could be the result of breathing too much while sniping, but also requiring her to wear as little clothes as possible, as covering her skin would suffocate her.
Also, submerging her in water could suffocate her like normal humans, though exposure to direct sunlight would immediately resuscitate her. As additional aid, the parasites compensated for the digestive organs she lost from her burns, enabling her to "drink" through her skin when showering so long as she did not move too much while in fresh water saltwater burning her instead , as well as receiving carbohydrates through photosynthesis, much like The End. She also gained a superhuman perception of space, being able to accurately shoot an unguided bullet with pinpoint accuracy to kill a fighter jet pilot at a great distance, compensating for bullet drop and wind speed while both the jet and the helicopter she was in were moving at mach speed and taking evasive action, respectively.
She later demonstrated this ability to Diamond Dogs when she managed to shoot bullets from a revolver supplied to her by Ocelot through one of their chopper's rotor blades and having the bullet pass through the rotor blades while they were moving, when the latter tried to convince Miller to let her join Big Boss in a mission. This came at a cost, however; the mutant strain had been implanted with Skull Face's directive to become a lethal contagious form should she ever attempt to communicate in English, and the contagious form would force her to carry out her mission of killing Big Boss regardless of her wishes.
In fact, she had the only example of English mating pairs of vocal cord parasites to be carried by a person until Eli infected his island. Quiet first appeared in the Spike Video Game Awards trailer for The Phantom Pain , where she is briefly seen on fire inside the hospital. Quiet's likeness, voice, and motion capture was provided by Dutch model and actress, Stefanie Joosten.
When asked about Quiet during a interview with Famitsu , Hideo Kojima replied: "In the game, Quiet is the main heroine. Whether she is friend or foe has yet to be revealed so I had to be careful when casting her role. MGS normally has old timers and old guys laughs. Stefanie is very skilled in action but since she never held that type of gun, we asked her do some training at home.
On September 6, , in response to the mixed reaction concerning Quiet's characteristics, Kojima clarified exactly what he meant when he asked lead designer Yoji Shinkawa for a "more erotic" character. What I'm really trying to do is create unique characters.
One of those is, of course, Quiet. She's a really unique character, I wanted to add that sexiness to her. It wasn't really supposed to be erotic, but sexy. Sexy could be for guys, weapons, vehicles, it's really that characteristic. When asked for her thoughts on Quiet's design, Joosten stated, "Of course, I was surprised to see Quiet's outfit at first.
But, you know, it fits in the Metal Gear universe, I think. I don't think I'm allowed to say a lot about this, but, well, Mr. Kojima has his reasons for deciding why Quiet [is] wearing what she's wearing. Players will just have to look forward to that. On September 8, , Kojima stated, "I know there's people concerning about 'Quiet' but don't worry.
I created her character as an antithesis to the women characters appeared in the past fighting game who are excessively exposed. On November 7, , some concept art for The Phantom Pain was leaked on the Tumblr account "european-extreme. Strangelove , and one that, while overall similar to her final design, was also topless, albeit obscured somewhat by her harness.
The latter two also had a cigarette box misspelled "Tabaco" strapped to her arm, as well as an artwork of her sitting and smoking a cigarette, implying that Quiet during these designs was initially meant to be a smoker. During the development of The Phantom Pain , a theory circulated online that Chico , due to the trauma of his incarceration at Camp Omega , and the death of Paz in Ground Zeroes , underwent a sex change to become the female Quiet.

Konami employees expressed their surprise and humor at the theory in the sixth episode of the English version of Kojima Productions' webseries, Kojima Station , but chose to not confirm or deny it in order to avoid spoilers. On September 11, , Kojima Station featured a short clip focused on Quiet. The clip revealed that Quiet possessed the ability to become invisible, shown by her vanishing while escaping from a Diamond Dogs helicopter, only to later reappear behind the soldiers onboard Mother Base.
On September 18, , during the TGS demo of The Phantom Pain , Quiet was shown to be one of many "buddy" characters available to the player during the course of the game. When arriving at a location set by the player, she would contact the player via radio and hum to indicate that she arrived at the destination. The demo also unveiled more of her abilities, more specifically she also possessed superhuman speed.
