Corvo Attano is the protagonist of Dishonored, originating from the Isle of Serkonos. Previously a bodyguard to the Empress, Jessamine Kaldwin, Corvo is stripped of his title of Lord Protector and imprisoned by the usurper, Hiram Burrows, then Royal Spymaster, on the pretense of having murdered his charge.
Equipment and skills
He is capable of using unusual gadgetry, which aids him in situations which require stealth, and also in head-on encounters. Accompanying this, Corvo is highly proficient with both ranged and melee weapons, such as the sword and the crossbow.
- Corvo means "crow" or "raven" in both Italian and Portuguese.
- Corvo had a strong bond with the Empress's daughter, Emily Kaldwin, so much so that she asks him to play hide-and-seek on his return to Dunwall.
- Accompanying this, it is speculated in Farley Havelock's journal that Emily Kaldwin may be Corvo's daughter. Similarly, Treavor Pendleton states that "everyone knows [he was] screwing the Empress."
- Corvo's identity throughout the game is unknown by everyone except those involved in the Loyalist Conspiracy. The authorities, even up to Hiram Burrows himself, do not realize that Corvo and the Masked Felon are the same man.
