    Summary

    The dreams about the Empress are the worst. The screams of her daughter and the shouts of her Royal Protector and that faint, pained gasp from the Empress herself, seem to ring in his ears long after waking.

    But he opens his eyes, his breathing harsh - though not so loud as to drown out the cries from the nightmare - and realizes he is back in Serkonos, not the city he had nearly broken and that had broken him in turn. The pall of pollution and despair that seemed to hang over Dunwall is absent in the southernmost Isle. As he gasps in lungfuls of fresh, clean air, the frantic pounding of his heart gradually slows.

    That’s not who he is anymore. He hasn’t taken a life since the Empress. He will never take another life. He left that life behind him.

    Daud goes back to Serkonos, turns over a new leaf, falls back on old habits, picks up some new ones, gets a job and investigates the Crown Killer. More or less in that order.

    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

    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

    Later, after he had killed a number of people for coin, but before he killed so many that he lost count, Daud was glad he had no mark. No soulmate deserved to have his words marked on their skin.

    Easily one of the best pre-Corvo/Daud fics in existence.
