Dishonored is a first-person action-adventure game, released in 2012 from Arkane Studios and Bethesda Softworks. The gameplay relies heavily on stealth, and players can choose to complete missions with stealth and trickery, or combat and assassination.


The protagonist and player avatar, Corvo Attano, is the trusted bodyguard to Jessamine Kaldwin, the Empress of the Isles. When he is framed for her murder, Corvo must disguise himself and seek revenge on his accusers. Downloadable content for the game includes a different perspective of the story, told from the point of view of the Empress's assassin.


The Dishonored fandom has a small, but growing, collection of fanfiction on Archive of Our Own. Favored pairings include Corvo and The Outsider (a mysteriously powerful being who helps Corvo on his quest) and Corvo/Jessamine.

There is also a dedicated Dishonored fan art group on deviantArt.
