Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Isaac is a reference to the biblical story of the binding of Isaac, in which Abraham is commanded by God to sacrifice his only son, Isaac, in order to prove his loyalty and love.
    • "Then God said, 'Take your son, your only son, whom you love — Isaac — and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you.'" (Genesis 22:2)
  • Edmund has stated that Isaac is left-handed, but in the opening cutscene, Isaac is holding a pencil with his right hand.[1]
    • This could be a reference to the Catholic bias against left-handedness, stemming from Matthew 25:33 proclaiming that God will put those deserving to ascend to Heaven on his right-hand side, and put those deserving to descend to Hell on his left-hand side. Isaac's mother could have forced him to learn things the "righty" way for fear of him being "evil."
  • Isaac is bald because his mother shaved his head.[2]
  • Isaac has Irritable Bowel Syndrome. [3]
