Zane Obispo.jpg Not part of Riordanverse

The following article/section is from the Storm Runner/Shadow Bruja continuity under Rick Riordan Presents and not the Riordanverse canon.

Quinn is a Nawal and elder sister of Brooks. She is a spy for Ixtab under the service of Saqik'oxol. She is currently in a relationship with Hondo Obispo.


Quinn was forcibly engaged to Jordan to "Keep her family's bloodline pure". She despised him and he would keep her on a tight leash. However, she and Brooks convinced him to let her go out under the lie of going to buy a wedding dress. They found Ixtab and begs her to end the engagement, the goddess agreed only if Quinn spent a few months escorting souls to Xib'alb'a. She agreed but, after seeing how powerful a shapeshifter Quinn was, broke the deal and enslaved her, however this later turns out to be false as it was actually a cover for Quinn as she was actually working for Ixtab as a spy. Ixtab allowed Quinn to have supervised meetings with Brooks.

Storm Runner Trilogy

The Storm Runner

Quinn finds Zane Obispo and leads him to the cave of Saqik'oxol. After Ah-Puch arrives she takes the son of Hurakan to face him. However along the way she is injured by Muwan and spirals down to the ground. Zane helps her land in a clearing where they are met by Brooks. Moments later Ah-Puch arrives and surrounds the sisters in hands of smoke. Soon after that they are freed when Ixtab arrives, who calls her a traitor. After the fight breaks out she knocks out Ixtab with a lightning bolt to the spine. When the gods arrive she and Brooks get Hondo Obispo and Jazz to safety. After Ah-Puch is defeated, Brooks and the others return to Jazz's shop.

Since Quinn's cover was blown when she took Zane's side, she couldn't go back Xib'alb'a, so she was currently in a protection program until she can be reactivated. But Quinn was fine with it, she didn't like being with all the dead people.

The Fire Keeper

When Zane, Brooks, Hondo, Rosie, and Ren Santiago entire Xib'alb'a, she finds them and say that entrance was for Zane and Rosie only and senses that Ren is not all human. She reluctantly agrees to help them through the underworld in exchange for the Gateway Map, but says Ixtab will notice them eventually. As they walk to Clementino, who chooses what is salvaged and what is destroyed in Xib'alb'a, she and Brooks catch up and she brushes off Ren's statements about the Maya and aliens. When they arrive she has Clementino sanitize them and give them new clothes to hide their human sent before setting out into the underworld.

She takes them to a canyon filled with toxic gases and tells them not to breathe so often. She and her sister turn into giant birds and fly the others across. She takes Zane and Hondo while Brooks takes Ren. Halfway across they run into winged Demon Runners and take evasive action as she tells Zane not to fight. They soon reach mountains. She takes them to Ixtab when the goddess learns Zane is in Xib'alb'a and tells the son of Hurakan to think of something before they arrive. She watches as the goddess scolds Zane for inadvertently revealing the godborns to the gods. She leads the others away when Ixtab asks to speak to Zane alone. Later when she tells Ixtab their is a call for her, she tells Zane to leave as soon as possible when she senses her powers vanishing. When Ixtab returns she tells them "It has begun." She is ordered to ready Ixtab's forces and leaves to do so. During battle practice she scolds Zane and the others on the battle field. She is soon followed by Rosie and Ixtab. After Zane accepts her offer she leaves Quinn in charge of the Death Ceremony. She then leads them to a waterfall.

When they emerge they are at a wedding reception in San Miguel de Allende and informs them that, despite spending ten hours in Xib'alb'a, only two hours have passed in the land of the living. She takes them through a church to El Grito, the home of Fausto who will perform Zane‘s death ceremony. When he exits his house he hugs her and puts her arm around Hondo. Zane asks her if this is the best way to hide himself, which she confirms. After the ceremony she and the others spend the night at El Grito and takes the form of a cat. When Zane tries to leave she does not stop him but tells him Hurakan will be executed rather then moved. After threatening him if Brooks is hurt by him in anyway and returns to cat form to set out on other business.

After Hurakan is saved, she greets her sister on Isla Holbox and joins them pizza, during the meal she tells Brooks their father is sick and to help take care of him. She tells Zane that Saqik'oxol sent her undercover due to something she foresaw.

The Shadow Crosser

After spending the last three months tracking Zane and monitoring Iktan, they reveal their mission to the son of Hurakan after the demon double crosses him in Hell's Kitchen, she and Hondo have also been dating during this time but they kept it a secret. She tracks the godborns to a locked parking lot and after catching Zane up to speed, make their move. She somehow gets on the other side of the fence and turns into a German Shepherd. As Zane talks to them they learn the twin’s names are Alana and Adrik and that they are safeguarding something. They make a break for it but she and Brooks grab Alana before losing Adrik. As Iktan returns they manage to escape after a brief fight and reach the gateway and escape. They reach Isla Holbox and after her sister is taken care of, she goes to report back to Ixtab. When Hondo arrives with Ren and Rosie, she is impressed with his new hairstyle. Later she wakes Zane up and drags him to Xib'alb'a to talk to Ixtab. A day or two later she is captured by Jordan and used as bait to lure in the others.

A few days later Ixkik' declares her and Jordan have wed. When Zane surrenders she is allowed to escort his friends out of the jungle as she mouths to him "don't be fooled". She demands that her sister be freed, but Ixkik' denies this. She attacks but is quickly restrained by a chain. When the godborns attack she breaks free and gets away. After Jordan becomes trapped in a time loop, their marriage is considered void and she starts dating Hondo openly and are seen dancing together at the party.


Quinn is a woman in her early twenties who resembles her younger sister with the same beautiful dark eyes and hair, she's also described to have pale skin (probably due to spending so much time in Xib'alb'a) with freckles.

When she was in Xib'alb'a, Quinn wore loose black cargo pants with ties at the hems and a black long-sleeved shirt. Her hair was tied in a high ponytail that drew her face back so tightly it looked like her skin might crack if she smiled.


Quinn is very serious and focused on the task at hand. She also cares a lot about Brooks.

  • Vitakinesis: As a Nawal, Quinn has enhanced healing abilities. Being able to recover from and survive serious injuries.


Love Interests

Fausto is Quinn's ex boyfriend, not much is known about their relationship other that they broke up a year before the events of The Fire Keeper and based on their interactions it's possible that she was the one who broke up with him. She also seems to have some lingering feelings for him as she's seen blushing when he flirts with her, but their relationship doesn't seem to be that close as she stole a mask from him to give it to Hondo.

Hondo Obispo

They first met in the Old World while Zane was fighting Ah Puch, although he immediately became impressed by her she's not shown to notice him; after that they met again in Xibalba where he started flirting with her, at first she was annoyed (although there are some hints that she was attracted to him) but eventually ended up liking him, after she and Brooks went to take care of their dad she and Hondo stayed in contact and developed feelings for each other starting a relationship. However the nature of this relationship had to be a secret, as Sobrenaturales were forbidden from dating humans and also she had to focus on her mission to follow Iktan; a couple of months later she gave him a mask for his birthday that would grant him powers in case of emergency.

Later on she was captured by Ixkik and the twins, and forced to marry Jordan, but luckily after Jordan and his mother were trapped in a time loop their marriage was considered void and she became free again; after the final battle Itzamná told them that he would get rid of the mixing laws as Hondo had shown supernatural bravery and strength. After this they start dating openly and are seen dancing together at the celebration party.
