Planet Eltria

    Iris 

Iris (IR-S07)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/iris_0.png
Voiced by: Yōko Hikasa
An Artificial Human originally created by Eltria's Planet Reclamation Committee. Masquerading herself as an A.I. she manipulated Kyrie from the time she was a child
  • Adaptation Name Change: In the INNOCENT continuity, her name is Iris Sevenfield.
  • Anti-Villain: Like Kyrie, she seeks to save Eltria and Granz from certain death, and she checks with Kyrie multiple times to make sure that she's okay with the possibility of hurting people in the process. In reality, she doesn't care who gets hurt in her quest to seek revenge on Yuri.
  • Big Bad: Is the true main villain of Reflection having manipulated Kyrie into releasing Dearche, Stern and Levi so that she could unlock the Eternal Crystal and free Yuri all so she could get revenge on her for supposedly murdering her father. She losses this status by the second half of Detonation.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Her official bio on the Nanoha Reflection website described her as a kind girl who couldn't resist helping people in trouble. In a subversion, this is her true personality, but her bitterness over Yuri's supposed betrayal makes her come off as far more villainous.
  • Body Horror: Recreating her human body involved literally ripping out tendrils of biomass from Chrono and a squadron of TSAB Red Shirts.
  • Break Them by Talking: She does this to Kyrie while the latter has her at gunpoint, having intimate knowledge of all of the girl's worries and insecurities from having acted as her confidant for the past decade.
  • Canon Foreigner: She has no counterpart in the anime or the games.
  • Childhood Friends: She's been friends with Kyrie ever since the latter was six years old and has acted as her confidant whenever she felt upset.
  • The Confidant: Kyrie often spoke with her about her worries and feelings of inferiority towards her sister. This is ultimately a deconstruction, since Iris was a False Friend who preyed on Kyrie's insecurities to turn her into a pawn in her quest for revenge against Yuri. And Kyrie was so emotionally dependent on her that she was unable to fight back when Iris revealed her betrayal.
  • Crucified Hero Shot: After being defeated by Yuri in a flashback, her body is shown in this position, held in place by one of Yuri's trees.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: In Detonation she continues her role as Big Bad for the first half of the movie... until its revealed that Phil Maxwell is alive and well and he reveals the depths of his depravities making him the Duology's true main villain.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: Pretty much all of her villainous actions are driven by the fact that her best friend Yuri (supposedly) slaughtered her father Phil Maxwell and the Planet Restoration Committee.
  • Everyone Went to School Together: She knew Granz and Elenoa back when they were children, due to their parents having been a part of Eltria's Planet Reclamation Committee. Presumably, this is the reason why she only ever let herself be seen by Kyrie (since they would be able to identify her and pick apart her false claims of being an A.I.).
  • False Friend: Near the end of Reflection, it's revealed that she had been using Kyrie ever since they first met as part of her plan to seek revenge on Yuri. However, Kyrie still considers her to be a friend even after this reveal, and their friendship becomes real at the end of Detonation.
  • I Lied: Quoted word for word when she betrays Kyrie, revealing that the Examia doesn't have the power to save Eltria or her father.
  • Kick the Dog:
    • She nonchalantly refers to Kyrie as a stranger at the end of her Breaking Speech.
    • Upon awakening Yuri, the first thing she does is punch the girl across the face, then take control of her to force her to hurt people.
  • Late to the Tragedy: Happens to her in the backstory. She comes home one day after having been off-base to play with the children of some of the scientists (Granz and Elenoa), only to find that everyone has been killed and her best friend Yuri was the culprit. This was actually invoked. Maxwell deliberately had the slaughter take place while she was away in order to trick her into thinking that Yuri was responsible.
  • Man Behind the Man: For most of Reflection it appears as if Kyrie is the main antagonist and Iris is her loyal sidekick that offers her advice. Then its revealed that Iris came up with the majority of the plan to find the Eternal Crystal and Kyrie was just following along. Then its revealed that she never had any intention of helping Kyrie heal her father and in reality was manipulating her so she could regain a human body and resurrect Yuri for her revenge making her the first movie's true villain.
  • Mook Maker: Thanks to her ability to manipulate inorganic material, she can freely create machines. She uses this to create an entire army of Iris Units in Detonation.
  • Naked First Impression: She was both naked and mute when she was awakened by Kyrie due to a limited amount of processing power.
  • Not So Different: She calls Kyrie out on this when she betrays her, pointing out that Kyrie was just as willing to hurt innocent people for the sake of her goal as she is.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Iris is actually a Mascot Name given to her by her father. Her "real" name, IR-S07, is only used once in a flashback.
  • Power Makes Your Hair Grow: Her ponytail becomes significantly longer upon regaining her human form.
  • Projected Man: As an A.I., her body is actually a hologram that is capable of interacting with the real world. This stops applying when she regenerates her human body.
  • Raised in a Lab: She is shown to have nothing but happy memories of all of the scientists who created and raised her. In fact, the main reason she's an antagonist is because she wants revenge for all of them having been massacred, especially the head scientist (whom she viewed as a father figure).
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Downplayed. Since she's an Anti-Villain, she wears salmon pink and dark gray rather than red and black. Played straight when she shows her true colors and switches over to a magenta and black ensemble.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Let's just say she's not the nicest of people.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: Iris was the Greek goddess of rainbows, which fits with her status as a Hard Light projection.
  • Robot Buddy: A.I. Buddy, to be specific. Subverted at the end of the movie, when it's revealed that she is neither an A.I., nor is she Kyrie's friend.
  • Super Powered Robot Meter Maid: For an Artificial Human who was made for the purpose of terraforming, she's a surprisingly tough fighter. Of course, this is justified since Eltria is a Death World and Maxwell wanted to use her as a Super Soldier.
  • Technopath: Using Formula, she can control and remodel any mechanical object in any way she chooses. She uses this to turn construction equipment into giant robots for the protagonists to fight.
  • Unrobotic Reveal: At first glance she appears to be an AI, but she's actually an Artifical Human that had been uploaded into a computer. She regains her human form in a rather... painful manner for those around her.
  • Vehicular Theme Naming: She's named after the long defunct British car brand Iris. This is reflected in her outfits, which both feature a diamond shape near her chest (all Iris cars had diamond shaped grilles).
  • Walking Spoiler: Note the number of spoiler tags.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair is salmon pink.
  • You Killed My Father: Her actual goal is to get revenge on Yuri for the death of her father Phil Maxwell.
  • You Wouldn't Shoot Me: She taunts Kyrie when the latter has her at gunpoint, calling her a coward and threatening to unleash hell on the girl's family should she take the shot. Kyrie is unable to fire and breaks down in tears. Amitie, on the other hand, has no such reservations.

    Elenoa Florian 

Elenoa Florian

Voiced by: Kanae Ito
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/elenor.png
Mother of Amitie and Kyrie. She worked with her husband Granz to try and bring life back to the planet Eltria.
  • Canon Immigrant: Granz has a wife in INNOCENTS, though she is said to be away on business and is never seen.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: With her husband Granz. They've known each other ever since they were children, as their parents were members of the Planet Reclamation Committee.
  • Ill Girl: By the start of Reflection, she is suffering from the early stages of the same disease that is killing her husband, though Yuri is able to cure her in the epilogue of Detonation.
  • Mum Looks Like a Sister: Averted. Unlike most mothers in the series who were seemingly granted eternal youth, she actually looks the way that you'd expect a woman in her late 40s/early 50s to look.
  • Parental Abandonment: Both of her parents were killed during the Planet Reclamation Committee slaughter when she was a child.
  • Sole Survivor: She and her husband were the only survivors of the Planet Reclamation Committee slaughter, as both of them happened to be off-base at the time.
  • Vehicular Theme Naming: Her name comes from the Ford Mustang Eleanor.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has pink hair like her younger daughter.

     Misato Mikami 

Misato Mikami

Sister of Shiro and aunt of the Takamachi siblings. She may or may not be Miyuki's biological mother.
  • Action Girl: Momoko mentions that she's a martial artists, and her only appearance shows her with several swords.
  • Action Mom: Maybe. She was Miyuki's biological mother in Triangle Heart 3. Whether or not this is still the case is unknown.
  • Alliterative Name: Misato Mikami.
  • Ambiguously Related: While they're definitely related, it's not clear if she's Miyuki's biological mother like back in Triangle Heart, or just her aunt.
  • The Bus Came Back: It took her 15 years to make the jump from Triangle Heart to Lyrical Nanoha.
  • The Cameo: Her only appearance to date is a single panel in chapter 6 of the Reflection manga.
  • No Name Given: She's only referred to as Nanoha's aunt in dialogue, but it's clearly supposed to be the same character as back in Triangle Heart 3.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: It isn't obvious from the angle given in her single-panel appearance, but she's basically an older version of Miyuki.
