I love his work. His illustrations are easily some of my favourites to come out of A:NR.

The new Anarch runner for the Spin Cycle? Or perhaps someone further down the line...

I have a feeling that I will play that runner based on theme alone.

I'd guess further away - Quetzal (if she turns out to be the Lunar Cycle Anarch) doesn't seem like a stargazer; at least not from Inject. Could easily be wrong.

Cool article, but when I saw the Android (not Netrunner) logo, I was hoping for an Android expansion announcement... oh well.

Probably Nasir Meidan. He has an astrolabe. Plus Matt illustrated him.

Except he said 'she' 'her'.

Also, the astrolab, while useful for astronomy, is much more useful for navigation, hence exploration.

They'll almost certainly be talking about Leela of Satelite Uplink and Lag Time fame. I mean, astronomy, female, and her picture is one of his and in the article.

He did say that we "wouldn't have seen her yet."

You're quite right, I just took that to mean that we hadn't seen any inkling of her being an ID yet.

Turns out Esseb did touch the flag. Don't tell him I said so though.

Leela was already announced as a runner in upstalk a while back. At least we have seen her card, though not outside of a card fan I think.

I'm guessing she'll be a Shaper runner and that her console is Astrolabe. Nasir will probably get his own (I really don't see the connection between the two anyway).

We know cards are prepared very long in advance before reveal, so I'm guessing she'll be in the next cycle, or there might be a second Shaper ID in this cycle (I don't believe it's been confirmed that each faction gets one this cycle, more that each pack has one).

Despite not knowing what the next cycle is about, I'd be a little surprised if astronomy lady wasn't in the one about the moon, which would pretty much narrow it down to Quetzal and Leela. We also don't know for sure that this interview was done after the All That Remains preview went up (or even how closely Matt follows the previews, for that matter).

He's a cyber explorer. An astrolabe is a tool for exploration and cartography, as denoted by his quotation in the card.
