Isabel is the main character of the novel Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson. Isabel is a thirteen-year old slave girl, struggling to get her freedom during the time of American Revolutionary War. Other major characters are Ruth, the younger sister of Isabel, who is, like her sister, sold to Mrs. Lockton and her husband Mr. Lockton; Mrs. Lockton, a very cruel and wealthy lady, who abuses both the slave sisters immensely; and Curzon, who is also a slave, works under a Rebels leader and supporter of “Patriots”, and asks Isabel to spy upon her Masters.
