- "You're threatening the wrong person. If I were you, I would strongly consider leaving while you still can."
- —Thalia to a member of the Hatters
Thalia Timsh is a character in The Knife of Dunwall and the niece of barrister Arnold Timsh. She is involved in a major dispute with her uncle over the family fortune - to solve the dispute once and for all, she enlists Daud's services in exchange for financial compensation and information regarding Delilah.
A young woman nearing her eighteenth birthday, Thalia is greatly interested in the social scene of Dunwall's upper class, attending lavish parties at the Boyle Mansion and at the estates of other wealthy families. This behavior puts her at odds with her uncle, a comparative shut-in, who condemns her socializing in the face of the rat plague sweeping the city. Thalia also takes great pride in her social status, regarding her uncle's attraction to Delilah with disdain, due in part to Delilah's social class.
Thalia largely behaves in an underwhelmed manner - for instance, reacting neutrally when she is threatened with death by members of the Hatters. In addition, if Daud chooses to kill Arnold Timsh in the process of completing his mission, Thalia reacts with some sadness, but is otherwise detached.
The Knife of Dunwall
Thalia is first encountered being held prisoner by members of the Hatters Gang, telling the men that they are foolish for kidnapping her, as Daud will kill them before they can harm her. When Daud eliminates the Hatters, Thalia gives him a mission: eliminate her uncle and steal her ailing grandmother's last will and testament, so Thalia may take the Timsh fortune for herself.
When Daud has completed the task, Thalia reveals that the Delilah he is seeking is Delilah Copperspoon, a woman who once served as a baker's apprentice in Dunwall Tower before becoming an apprentice painter to Anton Sokolov. Thalia claims that her uncle became infatuated with Delilah, a fact which she seems to detest. She also explains that during a seance at the Boyle estate, she and various party guests saw an image of Delilah in the old Brigmore Manor, painting Daud's name onto a canvas.
When she has imparted the promised information, she tells Daud she will be "leaving soon," suggesting she departs from the city thereafter.
- Thalia is voiced by Tricia Pierce.
- She can be killed after giving Daud the information about Delilah; doing so does not affect gameplay.
