Havelock: Corvo. I trust you remember Martin...an overseer before, and perhaps, again, some day soon.
Martin: I owe you thanks for my rescue.
Havelock: Indeed. You've given us a glimmer of hope, Corvo, because we've gotten what we wanted from Campbell's journal. We've done it. We know where Emily Kaldwin is being held.
Martin: The Golden Cat, of all places. A bathhouse for aristocrats. Little better than a cursed brothel.
Havelock: But there's an unfortunate twist. It appears that Pendleton's own kinsmen stand in our way...the twins, Morgan and Custis. Not only are they controlling Emma, but they have the controlling parliamentary votes we so desperately need.
Martin: Yes, the Pendletons have to die. But most importantly, Emily must be brought here safely so we can protect her, until the Lord Regent and his entourage have been dealt with. Pendleton's waiting for you on the dock. He's asked to brief you personally. I think it's best.
Havelock: If I were years younger, I'd be doing your job myself. Don't think I couldn't. I used to climb that rigging like a monkey.
Pendleton: Corvo. A moment, if I may. Corvo, I've asked to speak to you myself. You see, I'm sending you to kill my older brothers, Morgan and Custis. They're horrible men. It's true, as you may have heard--cruel beyond words. Further, my brothers are close allies to the Lord Regent. And as long as they are in Parliament, we cannot gather the votes we'll need to stop the Lord Regent from further consolidating his power.
These days, they're best known for exploiting their favor with him to cheat others out of their wealth. Let's just say that...not every family evicted and quarantined for having the plague actually has the plague. I warned my brothers in every way I could, I really did. But they never did listen to me. They'll be at The Golden Cat tonight with their usual revels. They'll be protected by the City Watch, so it'll be dangerous. Now, go. Please do it before I change my mind.
Sam: I'll take you to The Golden Cat when you're ready. I've taken Lord Pendleton enough times, believe me. I'll get you as close as I can to The Golden Cat, Corvo. You'll have to go the rest of the way on your own. The entrance is near Holger Square. The main thing is to make sure that little girl, Emily, gets back all safe and sure. Them two Pendletons are there, so I'm guessing there'll be a lot of guards. Slackjaw might have some ideas on helping you get inside The Cat, if he don't kill you.
This here's his territory, he and his Bottle Street gang hole up at the old Dunwall Whiskey factory. They sell the elixir that folks use to fight off the plague. I'll lay low, but keep an eye out for you and the little lady you're bringing back. Good luck to you. I know Emily must mean a lot to you. Be careful going up the street, Corvo. A river hand I know pulled up alongside me last night and said there's one of the Watch Towers on [inaudible 00:04:03] right now. I guess you getting rid of Campbell shook up the Lord Regent.
Male: I wonder [inaudible 00:05:01] notice me.
Male 2: Huh?
Female: This city is built on the bones of the great ones.
Male 3: Shut up!
Male 4: Hey! A dead body! Oh, I'll find you.
Male 5: Where'd you run off to?
Male 6: I'm heading back. I know you're here. Someone's about to get shipped.
Male 5: Where'd you run off to? Guys...
