Bonecharm

Bonecharms are resources which are carved from whalebone and found throughout the cities of Dunwall and Karnaca. Which exact bonecharm is found is random, but the type of bonecharm is set, so a regular bonecharm will always be found where a regular bonecharm was found previously, for example. They can be more easily located using the Heart which is given to Corvo (or Emily) by the Outsider.

Bonecharms provide minor supernatural benefits. Locate them by listening for the “song” they emit, or use the Heart to detect them from further away. By default, 5 [1] Bonecharms can be equipped at once in the Bonecharms section of the Journal. Later, upgrades can be purchased to increase that capacity.

In Dishonored 2, Emily can use them as well. Additionally, there are "corrupted" and "black" bonecharms. Note: For bonecharm locations, see the "Boncharms" section of the relevant mission,

Corrupt and Black Bonecharms are rare and powerful, offering exotic effects. But Corrupt Bonecharms are unstable, and also possess negative effects.

With the Bonecharm Crafting Enhancement, you can craft new Bonecharms by sacrificing Bonecharms and Runes you’ve found in the world to learn new Traits and obtain Raw Whalebone. (You cannot learn the Traits from Corrupt or Black Bonecharms.)
