* At the end of Tales of Dunwall 2 (linked below) the boy's body starts bleeding and then fades into a bright red symbol. As the boy is the first canonical victim of the plague, it only makes sense that the mark signifies the plague, the Outsider (who is strongly implied to have started the plague by giving the mark to the boy), or both.

* Jossed. Delilah canonically got locked away in the Void by Daud sabotaging her possession ritual, which is considered the Nonlethal option. Additionally, Billie Lurk is guaranteed to be killed by Daud's own hand if he is high-chaos (IE: killing spree), while she canonically survives to the second game to become Megan Foster (and her ship's name, "Dreadful Wale" is an affectionate anagram of "Farewell Daud").

When you consider how easily a man like Burrows took power, how cruel many of the rich and powerful are, and how grim and depressing the lives of many people are, it could be argued that The Outsider, with his "Human morality but inhuman perception" per WordOfGod, see's a few years of death and pain preferable to a few thousand years of most people being miserable. In Low Chaos, things get better by way of Emily being benevolent. In Total Chaos, thing's get "better" by way of KarmicDeath for the corrupt and by way of MercyKill for those who would otherwise suffer there entire lives.

They look very similar and have remarkably similar physics, Wolfenstein shares a universe with Doom, and a helmet from Skyrim appears in both Wolfenstein: The Old Blood (which is set after the 2009 Wolfenstein game) and the 2016 Doom game. Perhaps Earth and the Dishonored world are both located in the "Outer Realms" mentioned throughout TES lore.

* In ''Dishonored 2'', Delilah has usurped Emily and goes by the name "Delilah Kaldwin"

* In ''Dishonored 2'', Delilah has usurped Emily and goes by the name "Delilah Kaldwin"
Kaldwin".
* Confirmed in the sequel. Delilah is Jessamine's half-sister and was apparently 'promised' the throne by her father, the Emperor Euhorn Kaldwin. She was kicked out the Tower because she was accused of an accident Jessamine made and the former hated the latter due the extreme misfortune that befell her since then.




to:

* Jossed. Delilah is Emperor Euhorn Kaldwin's eldest bastard daughter.




to:

* Confirmed via WordOfGod. There are hints that they both knew about it.

* JOSSED. Emily was born during the Month of Rain (4th Month in the Imperial Calender). She was conceived during the Month of Hearths (9th Month) the year before, placing her conception far too late for the Fugue Feast.

* "Eminent Domain" and "The Surge" seem to take place shortly after "House of Pleasure". In "Eminent Domain", the broadcaster won't shut up about the Lord Regent raising the price on info on Emily's whereabouts, implying that he no longer knows where she is. The next mission in the main game, "The Royal Physician", has Corvo abduct Sokolov. Although Daud knows that Delilah can be found in Brigmore, he's GenreSavvy enough to understand that trying to take on a powerful witch without all the intel he can get on her is a bad idea. One of the few things known about Delilah is that she used to work with Sokolov, so Daud's next step should be to find out what Sokolov knows. But since Sokolov goes missing shortly after ''The Knife of Dunwall'', that's not an option. Daud will have to settle for looking into one of Sokolov's colleagues at the Academy.

While the chaos stat is determined by how you act in-game, its consequences are oddly far-reaching. That's because you're not just playing out your actions in the now, you're also establishing what Corvo's character was before the game started. Go on a murder spree, and Corvo will have always been the kind of man who'd kill dozens just because they were in the way and he didn't feel like trying a stealthy approach. Do a ghost run, and Corvo will have always been the kind of man who'd always find a better way than murder. The effects on the city aren't the result of your killings, but the result of the empress' taste in men. If she took a high-chaos Corvo for a bodyguard, she was kinda unstable and handled the plague outbreaks worse. The conspirators are affected for a similar reason, as the personality of the empress probably had a major influence on the way business was handled in court and in politics. Under a more unstable empress, a more ruthless personality was needed to reach the top. As for the storm in the final level? High-Chaos Corvo once killed a [[ButterflyOfDoom butterfly]] low-chaos Corvo spared.

[[WMG: The Outsider seems pleased in the Total Chaos ending not because of all the pain and death, but because the city deserved it and/or it's a (relatively) quick and painless "death"]]
