|This article is about the mysterious individual. For the book about him, see The Outsider (book).|
The Outsider is a supernatural being who seems to be responsible for all magic in the world of Dishonored and Dishonored 2. While his motives and nature are shrouded in mystery, he appears to be fascinated by certain aspects of humanity. The Outsider bestows his Mark on certain people he deems "interesting", granting them supernatural abilities. Corvo Attano and the assassin Daud were two such people.
The Outsider was once human, and merged with the Void at the age of 15 over 4000 years before the events of Dishonored. He now exists as a godlike entity that represents the Void. His presence and influence are the subject of much of the Abbey of the Everyman's rhetoric, where he is viewed as a malevolent force who seeks to destroy humanity on both a physical and spiritual level.
