Whaler 1: You're geared for field work.
Whaler 2: I have a job tonight.
Whaler 1: What's the delay.
Whaler 2: I am gate-bound, not river-bound.
Whaler 1: And Daud holds the key to the tunnel, and has asked not to be disturbed, is that it?
Whaler 2: Correct.
Whaler 1: This prisoner we took, the bodyguard who was with the Empress, seems to trouble him gravely.
Whaler 2: Yes, I feel that we've reached a turning point tonight.
Whaler 1: Yes. Good luck on your assignment. When you are permitted to leave.
Rulfio: For your next trial, you must move unseen. Stay in shadow and avoid the light. Cross to the other side of the room without attracting notice. Very good. I did not see you approach. Now, attempt a transversal. Do not focus on your destination with your eyes. That is folly, and will limit the potential of the power. You know the layout of the room. Instead focus on where you wish to be standing, and it will be so. Excellent. We have no more to teach you for now. Return to your place of rest. Your real work with us begins tomorrow night.
Whaler 3: Master...
Rulfio: What is it?
Whaler 3: Forgive me, but Corvo has escaped us. A sentry glimpsed him in the streets near the Greaves Refinery.
Daud: None like her. I'd give back all the coin if I could. No one should have to kill an Empress. See how you fare against my assassins! And now we fight the duel that no two others could fight, against the ticking of the clock. I've waited for this! Let's see if the Outsider will save your life or mine. Fool! We're of the same breed, you and I. We kill for others. You think I'm your enemy? I've never lied to you. Corvo, the terror of Dunwall.
