Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The The D6 The D6 that Isaac starts with does not increase the special counter, as Isaac starts with it.

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.
    • "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 intro 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]
