Quiet is mysterious sniper who operated in various locations in the world, but notably Afghanistan and the Angola–Zaire border. Much of her past is unknown, however at one point she was an assassin operating for XOF, a covert strike force that existed to support FOX. During her service for XOF, Quiet would be sent to assassinate a high profile target, Big Boss, after he was reported to awake from a coma in Cyprus. However Big Boss's awakening was especially significant event, that created a flurry of commotion, with many parties attempting to act upon Big Boss, whether assassination, protection, or information gathering. During the chaos of the night, Quiet would attempt to assassinate Big Boss, but her attempts would be thwarted, with Big Boss and a fellow hospital patient managing to set Quiet on fire, struggling she would fall out a window from a great height.
Quiet would later appear operating in the Soviet-occupied Kabul Province area, as a sniper terrorizing Russian soldiers. Encountering Big Boss again, a long distance sniper battle would play out.
Quiet is a fictional character created by Hideo Kojima and Yoji Shinkawa, designed for the Metal Gear Solid franchise. She would first appear in the video game Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain released in 2015. She is voiced, modeled after and motion captured by Dutch model Stefanie Joosten.
Quiet was introduced in the highly anticipated Metal Gear Solid V story, Metal Gear itself already a popular franchise with various video games, book adaptations, and comic books. One of the main characters of that story, she is the games main heroine, and features as an important subplot. Rather then existing as either an antagonist villain or good guy character, Quiet blurs between ally and mystery, her first few appearances attempting to kill the player character then later being recruitable with her own character and story development. Of note, Quiet is true to name, considered mute. The character also notably has many supernatural abilities and powers.
The character was the subject of some controversy due to the characters visual design. The character would go on to have some mixed reception upon the games release, many complimenting the characters writing, motivations, depth and mystery but still some criticism of the characters sexualization and attire.
