    Summary

    He grabs the guy by the back of the shirt and abruptly hauls him out of his chair and the bar goes dead silent. The guy stumbles, too drunk to stand straight, and stares at Daud, who comes up to just below his nose. Daud stares right back up at him, eyebrows raised, and lets go of his shirt. “Come on. We’re going now.”

    “What are you going to do down there,” the guy says, smirking down at him. He is really tall. “Pinch my nipples?”

    Summary

    Corvo Attano is an ex-con taking care of his feisty 10-year-old kid and working as a bouncer at the Hound Pits Club. His life isn't a great one, not compared to how things were when his career-criminal girlfriend Jessamine was still alive, but he's doing okay. Okay, that is, until Daud darkens his doorway and makes everything a million times worse.

    Summary

    In the end, Corvo has no one to blame but himself. He, after all, had been the first to spare Daud after besting the assassin in a duel. He, after all, had been anxious to explain his motives for doing so - at length - to Emily, when she had, one sunny afternoon in the Tower pavilion where her mother had met her violent death, asked what had happened to her mother's murderer.

    Now her letter of pardon seems to burn in his coat pocket on the right, opposite the Heart that he yet holds in his left coat pocket, and it feels like betrayal and not betrayal as he watches the sea pass him by, on his way to Serkonos on a fast ship, with Daud's apparent successor-via-default by his side. Life is infinitely ironic.
