Empress and Royal Protector Exonerated! Victims of Clever Conspirators! is a newspaper article found in Dishonored 2.
On these trusted pages we have often speculated about the Crown Killer. At first, we believed the monster took orders directly from the throne! Yet recent events have laid bare innumerable facts that leave Empress Emily Kaldwin and her Royal Protector Corvo Attano free of all such doubts!
Not only are they no longer implicated in those gruesome murders, but they themselves are the victims of clever conspirators bent on destroying their exemplary reputations! Evidence now points to an assassin from Karnaca, possibly taking orders from none other than Duke Luca Abele and Delilah Copperspoon.
However, this venerable institution is reluctant to arrive at conclusions before the whole truth is known! We will keep you aware of events as they transpire, dear readers.
