* In the Flooded District quest you come across a plague-ridden woman in an apartment. Every noise she makes is subtitled, so enjoy "hacking cough" and "weeping" flashing across your screen every five seconds. Then you get to her dialogue, where she'll give you advice on getting into the city and, if you hang around, mockingly accuse you of wanting to save her. Finally, point the Heart at her. Her children were desperate to hide her, but she deliberately handed herself in to protect them from the Watch and so she wouldn't waste their food. Now, she's just waiting for death.

Her children were desperate to hide her, but she deliberately handed herself in to protect them from the Watch and so she wouldn't waste their food. Now, she's just waiting for death. Finally, you can find a letter on her bed what is either her husband or one of her children. The letter promises that her family will care for her and doesn't care about her illness, begging her to stay with them instead of dying far away and alone. It ends with a desperate "I love you".


Added DiffLines:

** Actually, during the Main Game, if one listens to his audio recording, Daud will explain about how - out of all the things he has done - he regrets having killed the Empress and not the Spymaster. He is a murderer and would stab Corvo in the blink of an eye, but he is also fully aware that he had commited one murder that was undeserved and one murder that he should have done instead yet didn't.

Added DiffLines:

** Between the explanations about the location or person, the Heart sometimes seems to become self-aware, leading to it lamenting or questioning it's state.
--> Why am I so cold?
--> What have they done to me?
--> Can you hear them too? Crying out in the dark?
--> [[spoiler: I am not alive - nor have I received the gift of death.]]

* While racing up the High Chaos lighthouse, you will find a dead maid on the steps up to where Havelock and Emily are. She has a gun, and it doesn't look like she was using it on herself.

* During a low chaos play through, some of Cecilia's dialogue implies that [[spoiler: Martin and Pendleton felt guilty and remorseful about having the other residents of the Hounds Pitt Pub executed.]]
-->'''Cecilia''': "Pendleton kept apologizing. Martin was drinking and seemed sad."

-->She’s a generic NPC without a background (or likely a purpose beyond being an extra bit of gruesome high chaos decoration)–but looking at her and thinking about where she’s found, I somehow got the feeling that maybe she was killed while trying to intervene, or even just put in a word of protest, when Havelock started dragging Emily up the lighthouse steps?\\
\\
Which then got me thinking about how many women a high chaos!Emily has seen brutally murdered–in front of her, trying to protect her–in less than a year: her mother Jessamine, then Callista, and now this poor maid, who would have barely known Emily but would pay the ultimate price for her anyway.

** Another pair of, this time men, is found at the end of Daud's base. They seem to be good friends. One of them has gone blind from the plague and thinks he is in a dark basement. He tells his buddy that others survived the plague to which he responds that it's "one in a thousand, ten thousand probably". The man replies that that's still a chance and goes on to say all the things he will do when he recovers. The entire time he is disparately trying to convince himself that he will live, though it is obvious that he is one step away from being a weeper. The entire time, his buddy knows that he is also infected and is just cradling him in his arms. Dear God man. They don't even pay attention to you as you pass and it feels heartless just to kill them, because what if they can survive? One in ten thousand is still a chance...
*** And then the blind one dies and his buddy asks you why you're here if you're not contaminated... If you leave and come back to him a little later, you'll see that he dragged himself and his dead friend to beds and started sleeping.

* At some point in the game, you find two male survivors, obviously close friends. One is slowly dying in the other's arms (the other is also dying but at an earlier stage), being dragged out of the mound of corpses [[spoiler: that the city watch are dumping in the Flooded District]]. The dying man genuinely thinks he's being brought to a hospital and the City Watch will help him, promising to 'do things right' when he gets better. His blind optimism is heartbreaking considering the ForegoneConclusion, and his friend trying to let him down gently doesn't help.

* If you fail to save Captain Curnow, Callista will comment about how much she will miss her uncle, noting that he was good man, better than her own father. Later, you get to listen to her reminiscing about their family (all dead except the two of them) and how much of a hero he was to them. Considering that Curnow is one of the few uncorrupted men who joined the Watch to help people, not saving him is a choice not many make during their playthroughs.

* ''Everything'' Cecelia says. Not only is the text itself extremly sad, what with her saying that she fully expect to be the first one to be eliminated or fired when the Conspiracy disband, but it's her ''resigned'' tone that makes it truly tear jerking.
