- "Slaves who were planning to escape never lied about their intentions. Instead they stayed silent, even when they were beaten to death."
- ―Perre Needmo
A Silence oath was taken by Jessar slaves who intended to escape their lives of servitude and never lied about their plans. However, if and when they were caught, they instead chose to remain silent, even under pain of death.
