Silk was a kid fresh out of the seminary. He was a novice as an augur,
hadn't had time to inculcate the poor-as-a-church-mouse stereotypical
appetite of same. His eating habits must date from childhood, about which we
are told very little.

Silk's abstemiousness is, to some degree, an affectation. When his mind is
otherwise engaged he can--and does--eat normally, as at Inclito's house.
