An Irathient woman, Irisa is Joshua Nolan's tacit second in command. Smart, independent and feisty, Irisa still struggles with the weight of her unusual upbringing. A drifter since birth, she only stays in Defiance due to the loyalty she feels for Nolan. Nolan has encouraged Irisa to leave behind her traumatic past. He rescued her at a young age, and the two have been inseparable ever since.
Irisa was born Irisa Nyira. When she was just a child, her parents joined a cult led by a man named Thesho, who tortured and abused Irisa as her parents looked on. Due to the trauma, she stopped using her parents name and took the surname of her savior and adoptive father Joshua Nolan.
