Cecelia: Please, no. Oh, it's you Corvo. Thank the stars. We all thought you'd been killed. Except for Samuel. He seemed sure you'd survive. I saw him on the river shortly before the killing began. He was smart enough not to come ashore, but I'll bet he's still out there. Looking for you, is my guess. At first, Pendleton said it was time for a bonus. Havelock stood behind them...and at the signal, he shot them each at the back of the head. Just like the target drills he used to...Lydia barely had time to scream. I would be dead, too, except Wallace told me I wouldn't be getting anything.
Pendleton kept apologizing, saying that no one could ever know about the things they'd done. Martin was drinking and seemed sad. The Admiral said "Up the chute, Callista...". Then he mumbled something about owing her uncle, Captain Curnow, a debt. They said it was time for Sokolov, and went off to his cage. I don't know what happened after that.
Emily was there when the killing started, poor child. I hope she hid her eyes. The Admiral said that Martin was right. I guess they talked about it. Then they started to worry that they'd get executed for all that they'd done...going after the Lord Regent and his allies. I suppose it's why they poisoned you too.
I thought Lydia would squeal on me at the end. She just told Havelock to screw himself. Did I faint or something? Lydia's the only one who ever showed me any kindness. I don't think the Admiral actually knew I existed.
Male: What a day, huh? It was only a kid? [inaudible 00:02:30] Would you look at this mess?
Male 2: [inaudible 00:02:33] the officer said it was [inaudible 00:02:36] He asked me [inaudible 00:02:39]...mask in the river, and left town.
Male: That's what a rational person would do. Not this guy. You have to understand the criminal mind. I hear they had to hide a [inaudible 00:02:51] the whole time they were working on him. I heard they locked him in a cage, [inaudible 00:02:55] night.
Male 2: Criminal mind, huh? So what's he doing now?
Male: Waiting. He's probably watching us right now. He's crazy, this guy. He's moving closer, and closer...ever closer...
Male 2: Cut it out!
Male 2: What's so impressive about this guy, anyway? Who's he gone up against? A couple of High Overseers, a couple of noblemen? He could never stand up to men with our training.
Male: Well...now I do hope he shows up. I wanna see you run crying for the cover of the Tall Boys out back.
Male 2: Like you were.
Male: Yeah, right. What was I supposed to do, stand there and get hit by rocks?
Male 2: They were just kids!
Male: They were a gang. I hope Lord Regent Havelock sends the Tall Boys in to level them. It's gonna be a...
Male 3: ...and cigars tonight?
Male 4: Any chance of sharing champagne with me tonight?
Male 5: What's this?
Announcer: Attention, Dunwall citizens. Hirum Burrows, formerly the Lord Regent, has confessed to heinous crimes against the people of Dunwall. He shall be confined to the Coldridge Prison until the proper authorities decide his sentence. I, Admiral Farley Havelock, humbly accept the mantle of Lord Regent of the state of Bristol, and all of it's Imperial possessions. Notably, the capitol city of Dunwall. I fervently hope that my tenure will be...
Male 6: It's so refreshing to converse with someone on my own level.
Male 7: I couldn't agree more. Your expulsion from the academy was a crime against natural philosophy itself.
Male 6: Which...you might have pointed out at the time. But it's pointless to hold a grudge. I want to ask you...
Male with beard: Corvo! Good to see that you still breathe. This... I've completed Piero's work on an ark pylon.
Piero: With this device, we can send a powerful electrical signal through the nervous system, nearly rendering our enemies unconscious, or they can be redu... I've attuned it so that we will be safe from the functions of the device. It will only trigger in the presence of our... This ark pylon is more powerful than the older design. It will function at a greater range, striking down our foes while ignoring us.
I need my final sequence, which is recorded in the blueprint for this device. Havelock was inspecting it before the killing started. Return the blueprint to me. It was in his bedroom before he left. Hopefully, it's still there. You may navigate the... Astonishing! The ark pylon is complete. Now, to activate it.
Man with Beard: With this device, we can send a powerful electrical signal through the nervous system, nearly rendering our enemies unconscious, or they can be reduced to ashes.
Piero: What is your opinion, Corvo? As you wish, Corvo. We will be far away before any of them regain their senses. All is ready, Corvo. All that remains is plugging in a whale oil tank to power it. Will you do the honors?
Man with Beard: When this ark pylon is charged, no one will dare come near us.
