The Order of the Silent Sisters are an all-female religious order of the Faith of the Seven. The order is sworn to serve the Stranger, one of the seven gods of the Faith that represents death. As their name implies, they are an exclusively female order, and have taken vows of chastity and silence. The silent sisters attend to the dead, cleaning corpses and dressing/undressing them for the funeruary process. They are not to be confused with septas.
