-->"'ere - you done me a good deed when you took me in!" he interrupts. "I'd better stick close to you. Make sure no one takes advantage, like. Although that'll be difficult seein' as I keep gettin' thrown out of places on account of my smellin' like a cat what died in a chimney. Hm." That evening, he submits - for the first time ever - to a bath.

-->He has a healthy respect for Jenny, but a fierce fondness for the Soft-Hearted Widow. When he hears her confession, he sniffles and blows his nose loudly into his sleeve. "There's no shame in it!" He snaps, defensively. "That lady took me in when I got out of New Newgate. She's an example. This world don't deserve her. Well, it's about time someone set about improvin' it!"

Added DiffLines:

* During Hallowmas 1894, new options to "enhance" select Companions with a combination of notable Fallen Londoners' confessions were added. Some of these enhancements involve [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential traumatizing your Companions]] or encouraging them to become more ruthless/depraved, but others turn out to be surprisingly heartwarming ones:
** If you try to make the Grubby Urchin more moral by telling him about the Kashmiri Princess and Soft-Hearted Widow's confessions, he interprets these confessions in a different way than you intended and says that they prove that [[NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished people who do good deeds get hurt by others]] but then concludes that this means he has to protect ''you'' -- [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe the one who gave him a home]] -- from being similarly taken advantage of by others and is even willing to clean himself up to be able to stick by your side in common society.

** If you share Jenny and the Soft-Hearted Widow's confessions with the Devious Henchman, he becomes so moved by the Soft-Hearted Widow's tenderheartedness that he resolves to work hard to make the world a better place reflecting her example.

-->You dress for the occasion in scarlet and gold. You present the lady with a deep red rose so perfect that it glows even in the red light of the Embassy ballroom. Do not even think about what it cost. It has the desired effect. The Deviless is charmed, and dances only with you. She guides you to the least dangerous parts of the dancefloor. Later in the evening, when the room has grown insufferably hot, she leads you by the hand to a cool, quiet garden, lit by cages of luminescent beetles and dancing fireflies. You dance again, alone, her head resting on your shoulder. Days later, you find her earrings in your pocket. They are still warm.

* Many of the cards that get you to align yourself as closest to a faction are of the sort. Particular mention goes to giving a ShellShockedVeteran tomb-colonist the chance to finally wear the kind of proper, dapper clothes he wore in his youth, giving the urchins a treasure they had lost long ago and listening to their whole story afterwards, and spitting in the face of superstition to attend a vigil for someone who died permanently, giving the departed the proper last rites they deserve.

* If you're a good governor during your term over Port Carnelian you'll be sent off back to London with a rifle salute, cheers, the assumedly cheerful roaring of tigers, and the assurance by your secretary that if you ever come back you'll be treated the exact same.
