The Iridium Wonders in My Superhero Academy

Mahvash: [in Japanese] your pretty—nay beautiful guardian who prevails in love and justice stands here. And now, by the moon's splendor, she will show you the way.
Sally: Squad 2! Let's do some stretching together and a team cheer!
Dante: So what we could do is: improve people's lives and prove them wrong...or destroy them. Ultimately. But that's the darker and not heroic choice...
Ryuu: I want to be a hero, even with this... really mixed blessing
Iris: S-sorry, I didn't recognize you w-with the mask and all. pant. pant. D-do you know where we're going? pant. pant. And do we have to r-run?
Aster: ...nobody's going to touch you while Avajax and I are here...
Ever Green: ...do not apologize. Everyone can be manipulated and everyone can be tricked. Judging someone for an honest mistake sets ourselves up for humiliation later.


The Iridium Wonders, like every other squad, formed on Hallow's Eve. They very quickly established some Team Spirit and even now have the most developed team identity in the class. They were the first to name themselves, have a set of sentai poses, and often participate in team training and off-campus activities.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: A very lighthearted bunch who rarely dwell over angst and often enjoy hamming it up. (All of them quickly picked up on the idea of sentai poses). Also the heaviest concentration of angsty, often bloody experiences, outsiders (in many senses), and enigmatically 'chosen ones'.
  • Supernatural Team: Very well equipped to handle preternatural threats.
  • Tactical Withdrawal: After disintegrating in the first test, they finish the second exam in record time. Mostly by very efficiently sweeping up civilians then icing and just leaving the villain, whom they knew they didn't have to battle.
  • Team Spirit: As noted, have a very well established team identity and dynamic.

wings_of_flight_by_xzendor7-d4ydyat

Briefly: Mahvash being on the side of Saint and his heroes comes more from "nobility" than "goodness." She's both adventurous and charitable, if only because, staying still too long is quite unfulfilling, there's little (materially) that she really wants, and she loves attentionnote  and projects. None of this indicates empathy though.

Mahvash is more than aware of life as a Wide Open Sand Box and that she has the might to move mountains her way. She both revels in that power and is constantly refining it and seeking its best outlets. Random destruction she found unfulfilling. Most of the time. For the moment, the daeva considers herself Class 1's Good Shepherd.


A Few Tropes—Bio
  • Alien Psychology: Besides being Mahvash (See below), she's naturally note  attracted to the residue of filth, sex, and death and decay, has No Blood Ties, and a grandiose sense of responsibility without anything like agape. On a personal level, she'll happily declare that she's a God of Evil note , and gives even Saint's sense of morality a critical gaze.
  • Ascended Daeva: Almost. She wants to ascend "the right way." She's aware that she has to "adapt" and feels responsible for keeping the world, but does not readily accept others defining either morality and reason. Mahvash joining the school in the first place is less a result of a sudden epiphany or some Shocking Defeat Legacy and more working on "sustainable evil."
  • Assimilator: Why waste what one recovers from a battle? Mahvash will happily pick up souvenirs and learn from her foes and "friends" alike. Most notably, Druj Mahvash uses the magic touch of one of her classmates and variant copies of the others abilities to imbue things without destroying them.
  • Black Magic Knight: Elegant and composed and prefers to complement spellcraft with weapon styles. And the occasional wrestling move.
  • Brutal Honesty: Has few qualms about telling people exactly what they don't want to hear if they're unwary enough to ask her opinion.
  • Combat Pragmatist: While she enjoys her conflicts, she does intend to end them in her favor, preferably without giving the other a chance to retaliate. She's not quite a No-Nonsense Nemesis though, as she enjoys conversing with enemies and studying the context mid fight, and enjoys tricks, even developing wings because they looked cool. She'll still cut opponents with their edges—or let them forget that they're flowing destruction in the shape of wings.
  • Contralto of Danger: This and Voice of the Legion (and a Persian accent) characterize her normal voice.
  • Creepy Good: As noted in story, Mahvash is... Mahvash.
  • The Dreaded: She tends to make people wary by her very presence, earlier Mikael and Lucy, and later, Ash and Dawn.
  • Double Consciousness: Made of Evil (or at least born from it) and revels in it and intent on joining the human club tm and being a somewhat respectable deity among them.
  • Forgiven, but Not Forgotten: Will happily overlook insults and transgressions to "clear the air"—but she'll never actually forget the incident. She's not one for grudges at all. Mahvash went out of her way to exorcise a corruption from Rosalinda (the one who set her on fire) and welcomes her back without much fuss.
  • Ghostly Chill: Mahvash is very cold to the touch.
  • Holy Burns Evil: Very literally. Adar note  is anathema to her. "Everyday" fire is hardly better for her. She has a better defense against it than ritual-made atar, but fire attacks are still debilitating, with the exception of Hell-Fire.
  • Holy Halo: A perfect black body note , and quite visible. Whether or not its tangible depends on rule of funny. Complete with note  Phosphor-Essence, for aside from her halo, she has a constant dimness about her.
  • Humanoid Abomination: Mahvash looks human enough in her familiar form, and even has a pulse, not that it means anything or ever changes. This is only Mertensian mimicry, and her apparent flesh isn't. She also obviously doesn't breathe and dove from Godzilla's head to hard tiles, laughing. The nurse cannot heal her, and there's no guarantee, say, a surgeon would see the same internal anatomy each time he opened her up or even during. Oh and there's the halo and the environment dimming in her presence. Mahvash also makes use of the little bits of defeated foes that she decides to carry along to grow as much as possible from every encounter.
  • Properly Paranoid: Played With, but she's often prepared for threats from people who have given her no reason to suspect them, and her history has given her a very quick reaction time to danger. She still thinks Saint Academy will try to have her killed when she stops being useful. The "everyday" madness of the place is well within her comfort zone.
  • Modernized God: Mahvash drives, has an updated post-20th century ideology on 'sustainable evil' and considers herself an environmentalist, has learned several trades, is actively developing a marketing strategy for humans and others to out compete her cousins and siblings, and is happy to appear and get into the thick of it herself.
  • Moral Myopia: Goes to great lengths to rescue, care for, and dote on those she considers herself close to. She'll rescue others when asked, but that doesn't mean that this is important to her.
  • My Species Doth Protest Too Much: Daeva aren't generally known for heroics, and Mahvash is still...Mahvash after a long time learning.
  • Name That Unfolds Like Lotus Blossom
  • Normal Fish in a Tiny Pond: Mahvash is a very minor 'house-level' deity among gods, cosmic horrors, or even the small subgrouping of daeva. Even she didn't realize how far this would go away from her kind and in Saint Academy.
  • Our Gods Are Greater: Still a daeva, albeit lower tier note . Mikael confusing her with a demon is a particular aggravation. She can reach souls, create clerics and "chosen ones," and of course exercise her own innate power, but these all come with ...twists. Although, per modern taxonomy, Mahvash and her kind are other things haphazardly lumped into a category with the likes of Yazata, Olympians, Baals, etc.
  • Parental Substitute: The major reason she's as adjusted and grounded as she is. On the other end, this is her main pursuit in any social circle.
  • Pay Evil unto Evil: Is far from reluctant to hurt her opponents. Again, she loves her job and the sounds. Although, Saint would prefer she emphasize the inspiration part over the smiting part. While Mahvash is not quite as extreme as the first example on that page, she starts of with perhaps the cruelest fighting style. note  This is also the inevitable result of anyone sending Mahvash on a "good" task pre-Saint Academy. This levels off particularly, by Parents' Day.
  • Physical God: What she constantly works on being, complete with a following and place in making the world tick..
  • Pragmatic Hero: When faced with sadistic choices, she's pretty steadfast in hers and will make them without hesitation or regret.
  • Poisonous Friend / Psycho Sidekick: Mahvash has a peculiar moral code, but she's hospitable to her companions and teachers.
  • Renaissance Woman: She's picked up about every skill that caught her interest during her time on Earth.
  • Self-Constructed Being: She has no true form, but maintains her "familiar" form by borrowing the tulpa creation method. And her whole personality, is a constructed thing.
  • Slave to PR: Played With
    • It is oh-so-averted with regard to how classically heroic she wants to be seen. Mahvash just wants to be the one that saves people and solves the problem, and is properly relied upon for both. She's happy to be a "beautiful nightmare" in broad daylight and even alludes to being the devil to Mikael, but as she assures her companions, she's their nightmare—and better be their favorite too.
    • On the other hand, she wants to be her companions' (and her kin's) Good Shepherd, and does try to offer them spiritual guidance.
  • Spirited Cavalier Competitor: LOVES to be right in the middle of chaos and disaster, and she loves the challenge in solving it too, so, she'll save civvies at least while she's enjoying herself. Mahvash enjoys her line of work and is one of the few trainees not to show even a hint of shell shock upon the first "test" (read: mob of wild barbarians being thrown at them sink-or-swim style). And she's rarely anything but sweet on the job too.
  • Talented, but Trained: It's not for nothing that one often finds her in the training room, refining her skills through Mundane Utility, studying in the lab or on the field, thinking up applications for her classmates' talents, or copying and notating books. Mahvash has also been in the thick of adventure, intrigue, and deadly danger for much longer than she's been in school.
  • Taught by Experience: Related to the above, she spent much of her youth being the one to stick pennies in sockets and to try to mimic web swings... with predictable results. The same intrepid spirit did lead her to her talents and ability to problem-solve under pressure.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Perks: Mahvash has no secret identity, and integrates her power into every fiber of her life from teleporting to the Andes Mountains for evening walks to "shopping" by picking discarded foodstuffs up from farms all over the world and making money by fast tunneling. Smiting enemies just so happens to be another perk. As does supporting her kin (and not-quite-friends).
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Favors koshti pahlavāni, a submission-grappling based style. That and snarling, sudden lunges, ambushes, and dirty tricks. Much as she enjoys wrapping others up, she prefers other styles.
  • Your Soul Is Mine: Will invoke this on friends and enemies alike. Their treatment will differ of course.

A Few Tropes—Powers
  • Swiss-Army Superpower: Mahvash's mastery of her domain, including her extended essence, the khvarenah is her mainstay, and her aura's severe taint isn't even its primary function, just a side-effect of exposure to anything. She's much more apt to use her body and aura as a medium for power stunts and spell effects. All of the powers below are just how she typically exercises her two abilities.
    • Biomanipulation: Once granted permission, others' bodies become her domain as well...
    • Greater Somesthesis: Mahvash's dominant senses are tactile, and she feels people and things and the auras of both in great detail.
    • Variant Power Copying: Mahvash uses her mediumship to sample attacks thrown at her and add them to her own repertoire. Not that its perfect. Her copy of a flamethrower won't be a fire, it'll be burst of her own aura with similar movements and perhaps heat if she does it right. (She can't change her element, at least not with as by her innate power). Examples include:
      • Harmful Healing: Mahvash essentially sewing flesh and power from her own body into someone—which continually and inevitably burns away at the target, but keeps them moving and alive (or at least the soul with the body) until proper help can arrive. Yes, this hurts and feels wrong as its essentially jury-rigged necromancy. The move is extremely unnatural.
      • Shaping Your Attacks: Raw projections of Mahvash's aura or... fleshy bits.
      • Special Movement: By her nature, Mahvash has a tendency to just appear places, and it's an unwary person who lets her out of their sight or expects her to keep out of places where "she couldn't possibly be."
      • Just Skipping: A short range "skip" in spacetime that Mahvash uses to change her position or make otherwise ordinary movements while avoiding obstacles. She appears to flicker before appearing elsewhere, leaving a brief phantasm in her prior location.
    • Soul Power: Mahvash spreading blessings through the souls of followers and others so allowed. She doesn't have one herself, at least a separate, ethereal soul.
    • Unholy Nuke: Something she used to do as a child, and still does when lots of things have to disappear quickly and nothing you care for is nearby.
