Silence SO4

Edge invokes the Silence Symbol.

Silence is a recurring Symbology skill in the Star Ocean series. It consists of a symbol that halts the flow of air around enemies and renders them unable to cast symbols.


Tome of Silence

Upon the many tomes, books, texts, and other documents in the Runological Library of Castle Aquaria in Aquios is the Tome of Silence which explains to the reader about the support symbol required to cast the Silence symbology magic.


Silence blocks the flow of runological force around the target, thereby preventing the invocation of runology. When using this skill, you must not forget that blocking the flow of runolofical force to runes carved on the usual places that lack their own runological force is very easy, but doing the same for runes carved on special locations, items, or a body possessing a strong runological force requires considerable experience, ability, and luck.
