Loading screen description

Iris Amicitia (pronounced /Ee-ris/) is a guest character in Final Fantasy XV. She is the younger sister of Gladiolus and the daughter of Clarus Amicitia. She is the eldest daughter of House Amicitia.

Dossiers[]

Daughter of House Amicitia and Gladiolus' younger sister by eight years. Her family's closeness with the crown brought her into contact with Noctis at a young age, and the two became fast friends. Many mistake the crown prince as aloof and unaware, but Iris knows how caring and compassionate he truly is. With the aid of her retainers Monica and Dustin, she manages to flee the chaos of the Crown City post-ambush and arrive safely in Lestallum.
Iris first met Noctis at the tender age of 5. Her big brother's stories piqued her interest in the prince—a curiosity that one day drew her to the Citadel in search of this young man. The castle grounds proved too labyrinthine for the tiny Iris, and she soon lost her way. By some fortuitous turn of fate, it was none other than Prince Noctis who came to her rescue. From that day onward, Iris has harbored a special admiration for him, though she is loath to ever reveal her true feelings. Instead, she opts to show him affection via handsewn gifts.

Brotherhood Final Fantasy XV[]

Iris.

Iris's elder brother Gladiolus acts as Prince Noctis's Shield, like their father does for King Regis. When Iris was around five years old, Gladiolus complained about a ten-year-old Noctis being "stuck up," and did not respect him. Iris interjected during one of his rants, and came to the palace the next day to see Noctis. Gladiolus was embarrassed to find his sister wanting to meet the prince, and tried to explain that would be impossible. When she threw a tantrum over it, she was told she could meet him briefly.

While she waited to see Noctis, Iris was distracted by a cat in the palace garden and followed it. She inadvertently caught Noctis's attention as she pursued the cat, and wandered through the garden and an underground passage, ending up outside. It started raining in the woods and she realized she was lost. Noctis caught up with her and asked her name. He knew the way back because he sometimes played there, and they agreed to keep the escapade a secret. She revealed to Noctis that Gladiolus is her brother.

After they returned to the palace, Gladiolus was angry at Iris's disappearance. Noctis took the blame, claiming that he went to play outside and asked her to come along. He was chastised for leaving the palace and was grounded. Gladiolus received an apology, but took the blame himself, saying it was his fault for letting her out of his sight. Later that night, a tearful Iris admitted to him the truth. Learning how Noctis had helped his sister softened Gladiolus to him, and the two befriended.

Final Fantasy XV Prologue Parting Ways[]

The day before his scheduled departure for Altissia, Noctis and Ignis come to the Citadel to see King Regis, but find he is too busy to meet them. They meet Iris at the entrance hall speaking with Ignis's uncle, asking to see her father who is still in a meeting. She has brought a change of clothes for her father, as he has been so busy lately with the preparations for the peace treaty that he sleeps at the Citadel. Iris is sad she doesn't get to attend Noctis and Luna's wedding.

When the injured Kingsglaive soldier Libertus Ostium heads home that day, he stumbles and the crutches tumble from his grasp. Iris helps him and introduces herself. She explains her father and brother are in the Crownsguard and that she is friends with the prince. Libertus thinks Iris has missed Noctis leaving the Citadel, and calls his friend Nyx Ulric to confirm that Noctis is already at his home. Iris is sad because the day was "a special day." She has Noctis's number, but has never called him before because Gladiolus would be angry. Libertus encourages Iris to call anyway, and Iris does so. She tells Noctis to be careful and wishes him all the best, but is still sad after their conversation.

Final Fantasy XV[]

Iris was in Insomnia the day of the attack on the city, and was escorted out by the Crownsguard members Monica Elshett and Dustin Ackers. Iris fled along with other refugees and the Amicitia family chamberlain, Jared Hester and his grandson Talcott. They made their way to the city of Lestallum in the outlands of Lucis. She calls Noctis on his smartphone to let him know where she is, and to confirm that the news of his passing are false.

Iris shows Noctis around Lestallum.

When Noctis visits her in Lestallum, Iris tells him that Luna made it out of Insomnia safely. When Titan begins attempting to communicate with Noctis, he begins to experience headaches and takes a rest. Iris tours him around the city the next day, excited to spend time alone with Noctis. She remains behind in Lestallum while the party visits the Disc of Cauthess.

During their absence, Gladiolus contacts Iris asking if she can set up the royal vessel at Cape Caem. Jared is killed while protecting Iris from Caligo Ulldor, a Niflheim commander. This traumatizes Talcott, who dreamed of following in his grandfather's footsteps. Iris seeks to flee to the abandoned seaside outpost of Cape Caem with Talcott to avoid further bloodshed.

Gladiolus insists that Iris and Talcott accompany the retinue to Caem, where King Regis's ship lies in the secret harbor. On their way, one of the empire's "flying fortresses" lands some ways away from Old Lestallum, and Noctis and his friends venture there to exact revenge on Caligo for killing Jared, leaving Iris behind. Following their return, they make various pit stops on their way to Caem, where Talcott and the Hammerhead crew await them.

Iris gives Noctis a moogle doll.

In Caem, Iris and Talcott settle into a derelict house under the shadow of the lighthouse, and she prepares a room for Noctis's party to spend the night. Overhearing Talcott talk about the lake where they can find mythril, she directs them to the Vesperpool, in the northern reaches of Cleigne. She stays at Caem and starts a vegetable farm that Noctis can help maintain. If Gladiolus had Noctis pick flowers earlier, he can give them to Iris, delighting her. After the party liberates the Lestallum power plant from daemons, Iris gives Noctis a moogle doll, saying it is his good-luck-charm. When Noctis departs for Altissia on King Regis's ship, Iris and the others are there to bid him goodbye. Iris and Talcott later listen to a broadcast of Lunafreya's speech together.

After Noctis leaves Lucis, daylight rapidly disappears from the world. Iris and Talcott migrate to Lestallum, and she begins assisting Cor Leonis, the marshal of the Crownsguard, by assessing damage done by daemon attacks and seeing to the needs of survivors. She opens a clothes shop that sells used clothes as well as some she made herself. She wants to help fight the daemons, but Cor initially won't let her because it is too dangerous. He later relents and Iris becomes a daemon-hunter, known as the "Daemon Slayer". When Niflheim's "recovery assistance" in Insomnia is felled by daemons who have taken over the city, Iris and Cor evacuate the citizens.

When Noctis returns after a ten-year absence to bring light back to the world, he doesn't meet Iris, but learns how she's been from his friends and Talcott. She calls him and wants to speak to him in person to tell him something. Noctis omits the truth, and tells her he would see her if nothing happens. Iris replies nothing will happen.

Final_Fantasy_XV_v1.00_Old_Lestallum_glitch

Final Fantasy XV v1.00 Old Lestallum glitch

Version 1.00 of Final Fantasy XV had fewer invisible walls, allowing the player to jump to the top of the bridge in Old Lestallum with a high level chocobo, and dive to the water and swim to Altissia. This way the player could get Iris in the party in areas where she wasn't intended to be available, by returning to "past Lucis" with Umbra from the Altissia hotel. The only area where Iris could not be taken with this exploit was the Vesperpool, which is not available yet when Iris is a guest.

Voice[]

Iris is voiced by Megumi Han in Japanese and by Eden Riegel in English.

Etymology[]

Iris is the Greek word for the rainbow. The Greek goddess Iris carried messages via rainbow and linked the gods to humanity.

Iris is also the name of a flower.

In biology, the iris is the membrane of the eye that surrounds the pupil and helps it to contract or dilate depending on light received. In humans and some animals, the iris gives off a color unique to its bearer. The pronunciation of her name is also similar to that of Eris, a Greek goddess that represents strife and discord.

Amicitia means "friendship" in Latin.

Together, her full name literally reads: "Rainbow, friendship".
