31 days, 1 alphabet of horror tropes → Q is for Quiet One
   → Not strictly a horror trope, Quiet One describes an individual who says few words to nothing at all. Either they speak very little (being too shy to carry on normal conversation) or they have a voice but prefer not to use it, leaving everything to their actions and facial expressions. Supernatural entities are included as well and this trope can also be invoked by characters who have suffered severe psychological problems in their life, and as a result tend not to talk.
