Silence is a merchant in Baldur's Gate.

In the classic game's version Silence's creature file gender and animation are male, while the soundset, the voice is a female one. In the Enhanced Edition Silence was changed to be purely female.

Her store can be found in Baldur's Gate East. She offers both, equipment and rest in her store, the Shop of Silence. She can be killed without penalty.

I've crossed this realm time and again, and I am thoroughly convinced that many a fight could have been avoided if the combatants simply had a good night's sleep aforehand. Sanctuary be not so much for hiding as it is for resting nervous bones.
