Iridia is a lower-caste Inhuman of Attilan who underwent Terrigenesis and became a highly valued member of their society. Although her brother and father joined Maximus' rebellion against the Royal Family, Iridia remained loyal to Black Bolt. As the city of Attilan was to be destroyed following Maximus' downfall, Iridia joined the rest of the Inhumans and went to Earth one more time, preparing for a new life on the planet their ancestors had left.
With Attilan being too small and its resources too thin, the Inhuman society was organized into castes. Those with lesser abilities were sent to the mines while the others, the gifted, were granted a higher status. Being the children of Loyolis and Paripan, Iridia's and Bronaja's parents were lesser inhumans who hoped that Terrigenesis would grant their children with useful abilities and consequently a higher social status.
Iridia and Bronaja were eventually selected to undergo their own Terrigenesis, with a ceremony being held by Kitang under the watchful eyes of the Royal Family. Bronaja and his sister were told to enter the pods where they were covered in the Terrigen Mist. While Iridia got butterfly wings, gaining the ability to fly, to the marvel of the other Inhumans, and becoming a highly valued member of her society. Her brother, however, seemingly got nothing and was consequently send to the mines, to work alongside their father.
Maximus' Rise to Power
Following the exile of the Inhuman Royal Family, Iridia listened to a speech delivered by Maximus during which he declared himself as the new King of Attilan and claimed that he would lead them to Earth.
New Life on Earth
Iridia, along with Bronaja, Loyolis and Paripan was teleported to Earth with the rest of Attilan's population. After the arrival of the Royal Family, Black Bolt and Medusa made a speech to the Inhumans telling them that Earth was once again their home. The Inhumans would then go on to live in the settlement set up for them whichever would go unnoticed to the public world.
