Appearance Edit

Iris Appearance Colour

Iris is a young girl of average height with short blonde hair and blue eyes.[1] She wears a habit, which consists of a tunic, covered by a scapular, and a veil, light sandals, long light gloves, stockings and a brooch with a cross-like symbol engraved on it. Parts of her outfit are coated with blue lines to signify her being part of a Special Fire Force. While on the battlefield, she tops her outfit with a neck protector and (sometimes) a mouth gas mask. Underneath her clothing, Iris wears a light bra and underwear, the latter of which has the cross-like insignia on them. When she was younger, Iris was seen wearing a necklace with the cross-like insignia as a charm. Her outfit also contains what appear to be shoulder guards. When Iris carries out a purification ritual, she dons a revealing light dress.

Personality Edit

Being a sister, Iris has a strong belief in religious faith. She is very courteous to others, but is relatively shy. Iris is a caring and kind-hearted person, wishing to help and give support to everyone in need, despite the circumstances at hand.[2] Though somewhat incompetent in a fight, she shows bravery on the battlefield, being able to stand unfazed against a Infernal. She was shown to be rather private with her feelings and tends to prioritise the security and comfort of others first. Iris is timid but is motivated by her beliefs in religion. Iris has also displayed an amount of childish curiosity, pushing buttons without thinking and expressing jealousy over the other members of Company 8 visiting Asakusa.

Abilities Edit

Iris is a non-powered individual[3]. However, as a sister from the Holy Sol Temple, she is a fully qualified to performed prayers believed to allow Infernals to pass on peacefully as they are destroyed. Iris is also able to quickly treat a bullet wound[4], implying some degree of skill in first aid and medical knowledge.

Plot Edit

Introduction arc Edit

Shinra saves Iris

Iris being saved by Shinra.

Iris, alongside the rest of the Special Fire Force Company 8, arrives to save a train station from the Infernal, where she is ordered by Akitaru to begin the prayers. When the threat is defeated, a light starts falling from the ceiling, but the girl is carried to safety by Shinra, whom she thanks afterwards. Later, at the headquarters, Iris takes a shower with Maki, after which the two head out to the meeting room, where Akitaru delivers a speech about Spontaneous Human Combustion. Later that night, Iris moves out to save a factory from a Infernal. When the brigade arrives, Iris joins the others in fighting the threat. After Shinra succeeds in completing the mission, she was happy to see the boy with a delighted smile.

Iris is seen having a conversation with Maki on the roof when the two are interrupted by a fight that broke out between Arthur and Shinra. When the two boys start bickering, Iris reassures Shinra that he has as much cachet as Arthur. After Takehisa arrives and orders Maki to fight the two Fire Soldiers, Iris overlooks the event from the sidelines. Later, she attends an incident in the Iriya District and notices the victim crying, but Akitaru assures her to leave the girl be. Iris gets distracted by a burst of flames, coming from the apartment, and thinks it to be Maki's doing. The brigade then storms the building, but, when Arthur impales the man with his weapon, the ceiling starts to collapse, but the team manages to escape unscathed. Outside, Iris spots Mikako on the sidewalk and wonders whether she could help her, but realises that the best solution would be to pray. She is later present during the Rookie Fire Soldier Games, observing the event alongside her team-mates. The next day, Iris moves out to dispose of Setsuo Miyamoto, an ex-convict who turned into an Infernal in the courthouse.

When the brigade catches up to Shinra, Iris and the rest find themselves in a confrontation with the Special Fire Force Company 5. A stand-off between the brigades is catalyzed, but the two depart without any signs of struggle after Hibana notices Iris in the group.

She questions the woman's actions, resulting in Hibana ripping her gown off and using her a bait to draw out her brigade.
