The silver torc is a ring-shaped necklace or torc with silver plating manufactured for use by the favored, trusted human cohorts. When properly integrated with human mind, it can raise previously latent metapsychic ability to operant equivalency. However, once worn and integrated, removing the torc can cause irreparable psychic damage and madness.
Unlike the gold torc and similar to the gray torc, it has control and pleasure stimulation circuitry. A properly trained gold torc wearer can communicate metaspychically with (limited farspeech/telepathy), exert control over, or give pleasure stimulation to a wearer of a silver or gray torc.

So far there are no known Tanu silver torc wearers. The reasons for this are not clear, but it appears that subjecting another Tanu to wearing anything other than a gold torc is considered dishonorable or shameful.
