** Daud's journal mentions that some of his assassins are more powerful with their abilities than others. Billie Lurk is one of these more powerful assassins, which is why she's his second in command. Also keep in mind that Billie also sided with Delilah, so she probably got a powerup from her as well.

** And remember, during the Industrial Age, living up to 60-70 years was actually rather rare. It was only after large advancements in medical knowledge and technology that we've managed to push average life expectancy well past that.

** It's also possible that Billie would have Delilah empower the assassins as part of the pact. ** About the Whaler's loyalty to Billie, if you play a High Chaos run, you can hear the other Whalers grumbling about Daud's increasingly poor leadership and loss of sanity, and planning to betray him as well. It would have been easy for Billie to take control of them in that case.

** It could have also just been part of the "game" they were playing during the party, where they all took the same name to force the guests (and Corvo) to figure out which of them is the real Lady Boyle.

Added DiffLines:
** If you are stealthy enough, you can sneak up on a pair of witches who basically just drop the entire plan to you. They sabotaged the water supply so the Hatters would steal the engine coil, therefore disabling the Undine. This is all being done to throw obstacles in Daud's way to prevent him from reaching Brigmore in time. The witches don't want to make their presence known to the gangs since the gangs would just united against THEM, which is why they just opt to ambush them covertly in the sewers. And remember, Delilah has a very large source of contacts and puppets, and the witches have clearly been spying on the Hatters and Dead Eels for quite some time already.

Added DiffLines:
** Because rumors still spread. Remember, Dunwall is a city that has been plagued for YEARS by masked men (the Whalers) killing all sorts of people from nobles to street thugs.

*** Campbell does at that point because Corvo gets outed by his fellow conspirators after they stab him in the back. The Lord Regent, though, is clearly surprised if you unmask before killing him.

* The Outsider makes it sound like his Mark is an extraordinary gift that only a few talented people can have, but yet he gives them to people who tend to end up being opposed to one another. Corvo can fight Granny Rags and is at odds with Daud, while Daud fights Billie then Delilah, meaning that more than half of the Marked are at each others' throats.

** I read on the wiki that she has 72 years. It is stated in one of the DLC.

*** In fact, it wouldn't be too hard to believe if Corvo went the nonlethal route with Campbell. One could think branding the High Overseer to discredit him was intentional irony, if they believed the story about Corvo getting branded with the Outsider's mark to open him to accusations of witchcraft.

** There's an ongoing hypothesis that Emily was conceived during the Fugue Feast. Wich would explain why there are no mention of her father at all.

** Well, provided no enemies have seen you, there are still civilians and neutral Bottle Gangers hanging about. Civilians could have reported a shady masked man since they saw him the same day the High Overseer or Pendleton brothers were eliminated. Granted, this still leaves why they don't have a picture of him on the wanted posters, all the witness would have to say is "It looked like a skull", and you wouldn't confuse him for Daud's gang if you had an artist's rendition along that line.
