Character Information


Once a striking and successful hooder and adoptive mother to some, Isabel Gold fell from grace when a scratch from a ghoul led to her infection and the infection of one of her charges.


  • Nom on some bods and stop living in a fucking tunnel.
  • Avoid confronting her past in a way that makes her too uncomfortable.
  • Get rich enough for family counseling


Skilled and gifted, Isabel Gold traveled the length and breadth of America, fighting the good fight and helping whoever she could. At least, that's what she'd tell you. After a long (relatively) career of doing good alongside suspect, the aging Gold decided to put down what roots she could, starting a travelling school of magic in the Emerald City. While her Romani tradition did not lend itself to teaching particularly well, Gold's gifts of persuasion and a little surreptitious mind-magic did. Taking a liking to a few particularly-gifted students, she even had some of them legally adopted under her fake SIN. This, however, was not to last.

Investigating an astral disturbance coming from beneath the parking lot she had her mobile home/school parked, Isabel found herself in the den of a pack of cunning but rapidly-losing-their-marbles ghouls. With a few students, the soon-to-be Shadow Weaver confronted them, but a ghoul too far gone to even recognize her mystically-enhanced commands to halt and surrender managed to scratch her before being put down. Gold hid this for a time, but eventually succumbed to the Krieger strain. Hungry for flesh and in understandable mental distress, Isabel scratched a few of her concerned students and fled her little school, going beneath the surface and taking stock of the shambles that was her life.

After languishing for a few years as an opportunistic predator, the ghoul formerly known as Isabel Gold heard a whispering in the tunnels. An idol for her to follow, the very Shadow that had engulfed her life, a new way to look at the philosophy that had guided her magic throughout her life. Recontextualising her principles for her new subterranean, cannibalistic lifestyle, Shadow Weaver found herself at last in a position to get back to work, thanks to the recent arrival of Amelie and Jean-Baptiste.

Narrative Significant Qualities

Positive (?)

Exceptional Attribute (Magic) - Isabel was particularly gifted before her infection, brazenly exploiting her gifts and natural charm to her every advantage. Even after losing her essence to HMHVV, she remains formidable in her magical might.

Infected (Ghoul) - Mhm. Gray skin, blind, hates the sun, eats the flesh of her fellow metahuman. That's a ghoul right there.

Mentor Spirit (Shadow / Bat) - The immaterial Shadow is Isabel's mentor spirit, encouraging the spontaneity of an intangible concept. Shadow Weaver cannot bear to remain static, desiring foremost to avoid being nailed down.


Aged - Getting an awakened disease and living in tunnels for years can prematurely age you.

Distinctive Style - Just because your skin is grey now doesn't mean you have to stop wearing your colour. Isabel doesn't dress as flashy as she used to, but...

Faceless - Don't look at her teeth. Or the scars on her face, but those are probably fixable. Those chompers, though? Yeesh.
