Escape is a supernatural ability used by a few characters in the franchise but was only given the name in the Dishonored Roleplaying Game.[1]

The ability allows a person Marked by the Outsider to cheat death by turning them into a swarm of animals upon receiving a killing blow. The swarm will attack whoever killed the user then dispersed, and the user will appear at a shrine or sanctuary of their choosing. Variations of this power include the user either assuming a swarm of animals, typically rats, similar to the Devouring Swarm ability, or bloodflies.

Granny Rags and Paolo are the only known persons to possess this ability. Both of them are turned into rats, with Paolo's swarm consists of one brown rat and the rest albino.

Trivia[]

  • According to the Dishonored Roleplaying Game, users must wait until the next full moon after being saved to use this power again. However Granny Rags can use this repeatedly, while Paolo can do so once a day.
  • Paolo himself isn't Marked but instead has obtained an artifact granting him this ability.
