|~ Description of the Outsider in Dishonored|
The Outsider is the embodiment of the Void and the source of all magic in the universe. He is said to be part-devil, part-angel, neither good nor evil, and remains neutral in regard to events that transpire in the mortal world.
Born a human outcast over 4,000 years before the events of Dishonored, a nameless orphan was unwillingly subjected to a ritual by an occult group in which he was merged with the Void, becoming a being of insatiable curiosity about what people do when given power over others. As a godlike entity who represents the current time period, the Outsider appears to people he finds interesting, and can make contact with them both through dreams, and in the physical world at his shrines. However, the Outsider does not place conditions on those he gifts with supernatural abilities, and does not factor hierarchy or effort into their selection.
The Outsider is also described as having human emotion, but inhuman perception, making him almost alien. As a result of being powerless and abused as a boy, the Outsider is bitter about those with power acting abusively.
