How big and tall Is corvo?
I always wondered how this bodyguard was so good at sneaking around as I wouldn't expect a bodyguard to be a 5"10 scrawny ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥.

It's up to you, I think. The in-game models are all mostly the same height, with the exception of a few (like Emily, or Delilah).
I've seen some draw him as tall and lanky, others as shorter and stocky, others as somewhere inbetween.

I just cant imagine a guard who is personally protecting the queen and the princess to be less than 6 foot and 180lbs.
You can see his body type in the opening menu so it's certainly obvious what body type he has (not tall and lanky, not short and stocky either, he's obviously proportionate). He is probably 5'9'' - 6' 180-220 lbs, fit and a bit muscular.

He's actually a ferret. Thus the odd hand positions, lack of speaking parts, the quiet footsteps, and the kleptomanic tendencies. I'd put him at about six inches tall.

When he's hard or soft?

Dishonored wiki states Corvo is about forty, so cross-referencing age-height ratio averages he'd be 5 foot 11. I dunno why everyone expects a bodyguard to be built like a brick. Agility is usually more important in a fight than a brutish physique.

A balance of both Is actually Important.
I think he's more of a bodyguard in a "chief of security" sense than in a huge, slap-crazy-fans-off-of-the-red-carpet bouncer type

Hahahaha, you can judge by yourself with this artwork http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=156625046
He's quite slim, compared to a tall boy for example. And I also do believe he relies more on agility than strenght, think he got decribed as a whirwind soo.
Then again, savant is right, I mean.....1 bodyguard for an empress, that's not a lot.

When assassins attack Jessamine, Corvo absolutely hands their butts to them. And there were like, five. Until Daud showed up he was doing really well. And c'mon, one bodyguard?
Does no one get that when Jessamine was alive the watch worked for her?

Yeah, she had the Watch, or Elite Guards, likely all over the place, guarding the Tower as they should, and one always close right-hand man who serves as protector. As someone said, Corvo is more like a head of security than just a bodyguard. He likely had other duties to both the Empress and the city.

If he was just the bodyguard, he wouldn't have been sent to other parts of the world to ask for aid.

Right I see now.

Bruce Lee was nowhere near that size. Neither are Jet Li or Chuck Norris, or a slew of other bad asses.


To put it into perspective. I'm 6'2'', 225lbs and any of those "little" guys could easily whoop my ass...they could also easily whoop yours.

That actually fits what I "felt" as I played. Probably about 5' 10'' , 185lbs or so.

Sometimes I have a hard time believing corvo can chokehold guys twice his size.
