    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

    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

    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.

    Summary

    “You’re something I want, Wraith,” he says, his tone all business like. “And I don’t stop until I have what I want.”

    “That could have sounded romantic.”

    “It’s a fact.”

    She hums and squeezes his hand.
