Hackworth is a minor character and a City Watch Lower Guard featured in Dishonored, during the mission of the same name. He can be found in the yard at Coldridge Prison.


Having been assigned to the renowned prison, Hackworth is tasked with various duties, including patrolling the yard. Remarks from some of the guards also assigned to Coldridge suggest that not all the men employed there are doing their jobs properly, to the point that their rations of elixir are under threat of being taken away.

Hackworth, however, seems to be one of the more dutiful prison attendees, even going so far as to inspect the compound and reporting any problems he encounters. The day before Corvo Attano escapes prison, Hackworth discovered a leaking boiler in the prison yard, but did not get around to reporting it at that time.


After Corvo collects the clockwork explosive from the safe in the interrogation room, Hackworth's superior enters the yard and asks him if he has patrolled it yet. After disposing of his cigarette, Hackworth says that he will after reporting the boiler leak, only to be told that "a report's trouble for both of us" and to instead follow his orders. Reluctantly, he does so.
