Trial of Nonghui Chiao is a written note found in Dishonored: Death of the Outsider.


Conducted by Roving Vice Overseer Alvaro Cardoza.

Prisoner: Nonghui Chiao, of Wei-Gon (female, 32 years of age)
Offence: Heresy (repellent to sacred items and/or words)
Verdict: Guilty
Punishment: Reformation (musical therapy)

When asked to recite the Seven Strictures aloud, the prisoner choked and gagged on the words, and could not finish the Lying Tongue even when prompted. The prisoner then violently convulsed, and a deluge of blasphemies fell from her mouth until she was forcibly silenced. Subsequent attempts to rouse the prisoner to repeat the words known to every honest man or woman in the Isles were unsuccessful. Precedent indicates that she is therefore guilty of this heresy, and that her inability to speak the words of the Strictures is her body rejecting their truths, which are repugnant to the Outsider and his agents.

The above was witnessed by the two Overseers present during her interrogation, and they have signed statements attesting to the accuracy of this account.

GUILTY — Prisoner will be subject to experimental musical therapy to open her mind to the wisdom of the Seven Strictures.
