Is0bel is a character and crew member in Shadowrun: Hong Kong.

Background[edit | edit source]

Is0bel hails from the Walled City; she was led out of it by Gobbet. She is reluctant to talk much about her childhood back in the Walled City.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

  • Is0bel first joins the player character and Duncan (unwillingly) during Hard Landing.
  • For City of Darkness, either her or Gobbet will accompany you as a runner, which will affect how you approach the run. (assuming you're not a decker or shaman)
  • After hearing enough of her life story, Is0bel will give you her personal quest: DeckCon 2056. Completing it will eventually allow her to tell you a story about a boy and a Yama King.
  • She's the only other runner you can bring along for Gobbet's personal run (The Sinking Ship).
  • Is0bel generally dislikes resolving runs with cruelty or excessive violence.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Her grenade launcher is a useful weapon for attacking enemies behind cover or clustered together; remember that in Shadows of Hong Kong, grenadiers and some captain enemies can throw back grenades. Stunning them (without using stun grenades) will leave them vulnerable to the grenade launcher.
  • Like Racter, Is0bel can use Smartlink weapons, so you may buy Smartlink pistols for her if you wish.
  • Her library of programs do not include Shield, so runs with mandatory and relatively difficult encounters within the Matrix should be done when she is at a higher level.
  • Is0bel starts out with a deck of her own creation, which has the stats of a Renraku Kraftwerk-1, but with an impressive 225 IP. However, as the game progresses, her cyberdeck only gives her 3 AP, and allows her to do only 50 IP damage (before criticals/cover penalties). As her cyberdeck cannot be swapped out, knowing the limitations of her deck is essential if you intend to use her as your main decker, especially in Prosperity Tower.
