 Whizzard first appeared as flavor text on Grimoire, so I can't help but wonder if we're looking at our next new Runner identities in g00ru (Corroder, Sneakdoor Beta), John "Animal" McEvoy (Infiltration), Ele "Smoke" Scovak (The Maker's Eye, Wall of Static). If so, I wonder what factions they belong to and how long we're to wait before they get their own cards.

There's also "Old" Rick Henry, escaped clone (Melange Mining Corp) and Jerome Lock, on-duty tech (SEA Source), but they don't strike me as Runners.

 I think the faction of the reference card gives us a strong clue. So g00ru would be Anarch, Animal criminal, and Smoke Shaper. Sure infiltration is neutral but the card represents breaking in and is a reference to the Infiltration game that is all about data theft.

I'm positive we'll see those identities on future cards.

 

Good observation.

 Sneakdoor Beta is a Criminal card, but the 133+speak name does make him seem likely to be an Anarch.

 Don't be too surprised if we see Mr. White and gang make a showing. We've already seen Gabriel from Android: Infiltration.

 Monica Singh is on the Freelancer card in the Trace Amount set as well. Noise was also a suspect in the original Android game. I just got the novel Android Free fall as well and Noise has been mentioned in that as well. I love the cross game/media fluff they have with the Android universe.

 Gabriel was the tech expert in Infiltration so I think it is cool he is a runner. Monica was the Assassin, so the cards she is in fit great so far. Mr White was "the Brains" so he might not have the tech skill to run, but should show up in some way. John "Animal" was the Muscle (Already on Infiltration), Marilyn- the Driver, Hugo Cash- the Inside man. It will be cool when they all show up, and to see in what capacity.

 And I could be wrong, but it does look like Mr. Li from Android will make an appearance as a Criminal Resource.
