When a mage enters Quiet, they suffer madness of the Avatar (the part of them responsible for altering reality). The nature of a mage's Quiet is unique to that person, but while suffering from Quiet, mages sometimes create hobgoblins, magical phenomena arising from this madness of the Avatar.

For example, a mage who, in Quiet, believes that nearby shadows are whispering to him may inadvertently cause real audible whispers to emerge from nearby shadows. Marauders are mages that have fallen so deeply into Quiet that they have little to no chance to return to "normal."
