Added DiffLines:

* GermanicEfficiency: The one member of the crew who hews to this stereotype. This is why Monika passes her over for a leadership role: she knows her desire for timetables, detailed plans, and reliable intel would destroy the group.

Added DiffLines:

* TinMan: A classic example. Glory deliberately ''attempted'' to shred her Essence away with her first-gen cyberware, but discussions with her and doing her personal quest reveal her to be closed-off rather than emotionally dead.

** Justified in that she's a ''rat shaman''; this is something she's likely picked up (at least partially) from her patron spirit.

to:

* UnreliableNarrator: She admits that not all of her shadowrunning stories are completely accurate.
-->'''Gobbet''': Seattle, I'm hurt. Everything went down exactly like I said it did [...] Well, except for a few embellishments here and there [...] Artistic licence and all that.

** [[spoiler:Emilie comes back in ''Hong Kong'', hiding from corporate authorities after the Flux State falls. It seems that, no matter what happens between her and Blitz in ''Dragonfall'', it will be some time before they can be together again.]]

* AntiHero: As expected of shadowrunners; they're all "criminal mercenary operatives" to use Is0bel's choice of words.

* BizarreTasteInFood: Is0bel mentions that her favourite brand of pot noodle smells like insect repellent, [[spoiler:and she is infamous on Shadowland for making restaurant recommendations to places other shadowrunners won't touch with a fifteen-foot pole.]]

* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Gobbet is active on Shadowland, but unlike Is0bel she doesn't post under her name (her known online handle is Harbor Rat, and it's implied she uses others as well). Her posts tend to contain lots of these, like trying to attract a roommate by renting out her literal top shelf in her cabin.

* TheChick: Is0bel is a very emotional person, something that becomes very apparent during her special mission. She is also the person on your team most concerned with other people's well-being; she will literally jump for joy if you complete Kindly Cheng's delivery run to Strangler Bao without anyone dying.

* EscalatingWar: She had a fallout with her former best friend over some well-meant but patronizing advice that led to bricked decks, a personalized spambot on Shadowland, and a dead cat amongst others. [[spoiler:Though if you manage to mend their relationship slightly Is0bel swears she had nothing to do with the cat.]]
* FlatEarthAtheist: Is0bel doesn't believe the [[spoiler:Yama Kings]] exist, though this is more of a coping mechanism to deal with her traumatic childhood than anything else. You can even point out in your first conversation on the subject that she sounds more like she is trying to convince herself than you about the validity of this belief.

* TheLoad: Is0bel is her own worst enemy when her lack of social skills get her into trouble during her personal mission. She's incapable of spinning a lie on the spot, almost blows her cover when she gets into an argument against a rival decker, and her [[ASimplePlan plan]] in general goes wrong at every opportunity. The PlayerCharacter has to [[PlayingCyrano play Cyrano]] to guide her through the whole mess.

* OptionalPartyMember: He's only acquainted with Gobbet and Is0bel as the "weird guy renting out the lower deck". The fact that he's a shadowrunner is unknown to them until you the player character introduces him/herself, and figures it out, and convinces Ractor to join the team.
