Duke Abele Body Double Armando

Armando, body double of Duke Luca Abele.

Armando[1] is a character in Dishonored 2. He is the body double of Duke Luca Abele, trained to imitate him in every aspect to foil assassination attempts on his person.


Armando was the political decoy of the Duke of Serkonos for as long as Luca succeeded his father. Unlike the Duke, he cares about the people of Serkonos but is disheartened by Karnaca's decay under its ruler. He corresponds with Lucia Pastor in the hopes of changing the life conditions of the miners slaving away in the silver mines.

Dishonored 2

During the mission The Grand Palace, Corvo Attano or Emily Kaldwin has the option to identify Armando from the real Duke and talk to him. The body double will agree on a plan to switch roles with the real Duke in order to arrest Abele and, in his place, rule Serkonos in a more effective and respectable manner. As a condition, he demands that his actions will not be dictated by the Empire.


  • Armando is a smoker, while Luca is not. This is a way to distinguish the body double from the Duke.
  • If Armando is switched with Luca Abele in high chaos, he will turn corrupt at the end of the game.
  • Armando is the Spanish and Italian variant of the name Armand, meaning "of the army".
  • Armando's dream career was to practice law in Dunwall.[2]
