Corvo’s being played

This shadowy figure is The Outsider, a supernatural entity worshiped by some like a god. He’s described as ambiguous and “part devil, part angel”. He rarely physically appears and only contacts people he believes are important to fate. So while he looks like he’s helping Corvo, he’s probably using him to achieve some other, larger goal.
