Not much is known about Iris' life before the apocalypse except that she may have lived in or around the Washington D.C. area before the outbreak.
Iris is one of the residents living in Oceanside. She was mentioned by Cyndie as she tells Rachel that she will use some of Iris' sage leaves to create stuffing for a teddy bear they found and to get rid of its foul odor.
While unseen, Iris is among the Oceanside residents to flee their community after the bombs went off. They are rounded up by the Alexandrians in the woods and held captive as Rick secures their armory. She and the other residents are protected by the Alexandrians when a herd approaches Oceanside. Afterwards, she and the others return safely to their community.
