"I'm Iris, messenger goddess, bon vivant, rainbow aficionado."

Iris was a messenger goddess who helped remove the body of the Nameless.


Becoming a God

Iris was once a human magician and a member of the Library. She along with Baccuss, Aengus, and Heka became gods after sealing and bounding a stone that contained the power of a god into themselves.

"Who's 'Our Lady of the Tree'?"
"You are. I assume they mean the trees you brought back in Fillory. Lovely act of penance. Good moniker for you."

It’s unknown how she was before her apotheosis to goddesshood, she showed the typical indifferent traits found in most gods. However Iris appeared somewhat different than her pseudo-god brethren. She appeared to enjoy the task of creating new worlds. On occasion she said she would do a miracle or two such as curing a sick child, mostly as to keep up morale with humanity. However when the Monster was released she did whatever she could to survive.
