    Summary

    Choked out and left on his bed, key and bone charm missing, Daud is left with more questions than answers. Against all odds, he and his whalers remain alive, all with no explanation whatsoever. And then a year after the group of ex-assassins leaves Dunwall to settle down in Serkonos, they are re-acquainted with the mysterious, quiet Royal Protector, who, for whatever reason, has come to Serkonos to occupy the room next to Daud's, and for whatever reason, doesn't kill any of them. Dunwall's Royal Protector is a frustrating mystery, and like all puzzles, Daud will take it upon himself to understand the strange creature that is Corvo Attano.

    Summary

    Daud's crisis of conscience is a well documented fact. He knows what fate will befall the young Empress Emily if he leaves her with the Pendelton twins. So he decides not to.

    The Outsider never saw this outcome in all the worlds and all the possibilities he could touch. How very... fascinating.

    Summary

    By the time the meeting starts, it’s too late to excuse himself to go to the washroom to relieve himself, and but the time this thought occurs to Daud he realises that he has in fact not relieved himself all day. By the time the meeting is halfway done he’s remembered every single glass of water he’d downed – at least five – and he’s feeling every single drop in his very full, very painful bladder while the Prime Minister drones on about tax reform.

    Daud isn't even remotely ready to analyse this about himself.

    Summary

    After narrowly escaping an assassination attempt, Corvo insists Emily needs a new teacher; a skilled assassin, who can show her how to survive even the most deadly of attacks. However, the man he has in mind has been retired for over ten years, to say nothing of his history with their family.

    Summary

    She feels the Void flow through her veins, her heart of metal and wire, her throat, moving her tongue by its own accord. “Your hands do violence,” the Void whispers, though hers are the lips that speak, “but there is a different dream in your heart."

    It is 1837 when Jessamine Kaldwin falls not to an assassin's blade, but to the witch Delilah.

    On the day the Empress's throne is usurped by the half-sister she betrayed and denied when they were both children - on the day her daughter is claimed by the witch and her bodyguard imprisoned - the man who'd intended to kill her makes a choice not even the Outsider himself could have predicted.

    Summary

    A year after Delilah's coup, Emily Kaldwin is settling back into the throne. However, when the Outsider reveals that his powers are waning, the Empress is forced to partner with a person she very much would like to have avoided until the end of time. The Void may be threatening to end the world as she knows it, but it also sings to Emily in her very bones, and there are certain things she cannot deny no matter the circumstances.

    Her attraction to the man she should have no association with, is one of them.

    Summary

    It is said that his mother was a witch from one of the archipelagos off the Pandyssian coast, taken captive by pirates venturing far from the Isles. According the legend, by the time the ship returned, the captain was dead and the witch controlled the crew, with Daud still a shadow in her belly.
    — Rumours and Sightings: Daud

    "Haven’t seen you around here before,” the bartender says when Daud slides into a seat at the bar, grimacing and brushing silver dust from his hair and face. “Traveller?”

    Does he look so different? So foreign? The only thing his mother ever told him about the man who sired him was that he was Serkonan, and the duskiness of his skin used to be enough of a giveaway. “Native,” Daud replies shortly. “Returning. It’s… been a while.”

    Daud returns to the place he once called home.

    Summary

    On a routine job, Daud comes across something horrible. He might be an assassin but there were things that were simply not acceptable. Hurting defenseless children was definitely not acceptable. Of course, now that he's saved the kid what exactly was he supposed to do with him?

     

    Most of the warnings above are specifically for the situation that Daud comes across in the first chapter and won't appear after that. The Littlest Whaler character, by the way, is not an OC. But who it is, you'll have to guess.
