So I realized something that a lot of you probably didn't notice but I found after browsing through the wiki.

The heart you receive from The Outsider is the Empresses, or at least possesses the soul of the Empress.

Hints at this:

The most obvious, the voice actress is the same as the voice of the Empress.

Granny Rags says "Nothing's been the same since her death! Poor child! Her spirit lives on – trapped – misused – and for what purpose?"

When used on Sokolov: "Anton Sokolov. He knew me once. And did much to set me on my path."

Finally, on Daud: "Why have you brought me here? Am I to forgive this man for what he did?"

As far as I'm concerned this is solid evidence. Sorry if you all already realized this but it kind of blew my mind as I wasn't paying a lot of attention at the beginning of the game.

I put contains spoilers in the thread title.. TWICE! So don't bitch.

The fuck. I suddenly feel a lot less comfortable using that. It makes Corvo come off like a complete lunatic.

I realised after a few L1 (I think that was the button...) pushes. I thought it was a nice touch and certainly prompted me to whip the heart out more often besides its obvious use for collectibles. I liked some of the insight she gives.

That was my immediate thought when playing the game. Didn't they actually say it at some point?

I thought this was obvious O.o

I mean she keeps hinting at it throughout the game and by that I mean almost all the time, also she has the same voice.

It was obvious the moment you got it. I think i realised during the quicklook.

Yeah, that was obvious after like the first few lines the heart says.

What's less obvious is the guy at the very start of the game on the boat with you is Curnow, Callista's Uncle. Oh and the real major one, Corvo is Emily's father.

That makes since. I kind of wish I would of heard more of what the heart had to say dieting the game now. I think I only hit the button once when the tutorial first showed it.
