Irisa Nyira, also known as Irisa Nolan, is a female Irathient, the adoptive-daughter of Joshua Nolan, a deputy Lawkeeper of Defiance and a member of the Coalition of Independent States after Jeffrey Sinclair executed a order to eliminate any Irathients. Irisa is very protective of Nolan but also of the weak or people who are being tortured. She is not trusting of new groups of people especially towns preferring to continue moving through the Badlands with Nolan. She is always on her guard and always carrying many knives concealed in her clothing. Irisa also has a somewhat dark sense of humor seemingly taunting people in tense moments.
