Dishonored PS3 trailer analysis: Ten things things we’ve learned

1

Corvo was probably getting it on with the Empress

Corvo Atano was the former bodyguard of the Empress, Jessamine Caldwin, and is accused of killing her. That’s the crime he’s in prison for at the start of the trailer. Among snippets of his trial and threats of an imminent beheading we hear a female voice, presumably the Empress, saying, “When you are near my heart is at peace. Hurry home”. It implies the two might have had more than a simple working relationship. Jessamine also has a daughter called Emily. Bet you anything Corv’s the dad.
