If you’ve caught the recent Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone Pacific, then you’ve noticed a new character, Isabella Rosario Dulnuan Reyes. This Filipina character is a member of the Task Force Trident. The task force is composed of a trio playable characters in the new season along with a new map, Caldera set during the WWII era.
Isabella is an expert martial arts master specializing in deadly close-quarter battle (CBQ). According to announcement, she was trained by her father to learn the Filipino martial art of Arnis. It’s the national martial art sport of the country also known as Eskrima or Kali. Two skins are available for the character included Puno and Espada that’s all unlocked in later levels of the game.
Fil-Am Jenn Wong is the voice of Isabella and her credits include Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon and Yo-Kai Watch. Vanguard’s narrative designer Belinda Garcia is also Filipina and she explained that the team took measures to properly represent the culture alongside being a Filipina.
Catch it all now and watch Isabella be the best martial arts specialist there is!
