DXMD trophy Fresh out of the Package

Little k is the journalist for Samizdat, an underground anti-establishment newspaper operating from Prague in 2029. Adam Jensen can come across her during SM05: Samizdat.

Her real name is unknown. Information from K indicates that Little k has published under the name Ophelia Carter, but this could be a pseudonym. Angela Gunn calls her Suzanne.[1]


Little k's father was an exponent of the truth who notably took part in publishing Charter 77. After her father was imprisoned in 1977, Little k started following her father's footsteps in becoming a dissident. Her sister has implored Little k to come home, telling her that she is too old to be hiding in the sewers.[2]

Little k is not a local of Prague, and is only in the city because her work in uncovering the truth forced her to relocate for safety reasons. Ever since relocating, she has been using a Schengen visa and a language implant to get by.[3]

The articles published in Samizdat's newspaper are attributed to Little k. As part of her work for Samizdat, she has written stories on topics such as Panchaea and the Human Restoration Act. She considers Samizdat to be "counterculture patriots" who offer an alternative to Picus, who are nothing but disingenuous liars in her opinion.[4]

While in Prague, Little k has been investigating Praha Dovoz, the storefront of the Task Force 29 Headquarters. For her investigation, she uses apartment unit 302 at 33 Hlavní, where she maintains an investigation board with notes. Through her investigation, Little k has noticed several peculiarities with the store, including unusual pattern in how employees tend to go in and leave the store, and the fact that the store is never closed. Little k thus came to the conclusion that Praha Dovoz is a cover for something bigger.

At one point, Samizdat hacks Praha Dovoz' computer systems, causing Peter Chang to request Adam Jensen to investigate the situation. If Jensen follows through with this request, Jensen eventually comes across Little k and the rest of Samizdat.

Missions and points of interest[]

  • SM05: Samizdat: Adam Jensen discovers the location of Samizdat's hideout by impersonating little k when messaging from her computer in 33 Hlavní. Afterwards, little k is encountered in Samizdat's sewers hideout along with other members of the group. Adam Jensen may help Samizdat by hacking the city's info hub to allow Samizdat to disclose information uncovered by Jensen.
  • Samizdat SOS (point of interest): If SM05: Samizdat was completed, K and Bones are later detained at the police station when Prague is under martial law. With K now in custody of the police, Little k succeeds K as the new K of Samizdat. However, Little k still cares about K, and contacts Jensen to help get K and Bones out of Prague.
  • SM12: K is for Každý: Following little k's request, Jensen helps K and Bones escape to Paris, where the Samizdat members rename themselves Silhouette.


  • According to K, Little k published the book The Wheels Come Off in 2013.[5] This work is mentioned in an e-mail on Smuggler's computer in Deus Ex. The email attributes the book to "Ophelia Carter," which may be Little k's real name or pen name.
    • K mentions that the conspiracies in that book keep checking out except for the part on "the gray aliens," but K suggests that this might have been a metaphor.
  • Little k seems to think that Eliza Cassan was murdered during the Aug Incident of 2027 and was replaced by an impostor[6]. A full rant by Little k on this theory can be read on the second page of the Samizdat newspaper should Jensen decide to turn in evidence of a conspiracy.
    • Given how the "real" Eliza was replaced by a reformatted, pro-Illuminati backup after the incident struck, she was not very far off.
