Iris is 22 with long, brown hair and hazel eyes. She thinks she's a very plain girl, but really she has a quiet, understated beauty. She rarely wears makeup, and has no fashion sense, so her closet is full of cords and Cosby sweaters. She is addicted to black coffee and has a crush on the Starbucks guy, but is too shy to make a move. In fact, she has never had a boyfriend and is still a virgin. Her friends keep telling her to come out with them and meet someone, but Iris isn't much of a drinker; she prefers to stay home and read, or watch "Downton Abbey". Her bookcase if full of Margaret Atwood and the Bronte sisters. She has a cat named Boris, and shares a small apartment with two other girls who are nice enough, but not good friends. At times she feels lonely, but she never loses hope that one day she will meet someone, somehow. She just has to come out of her shell first.

Her father is a cop, and her mother is a homemaker. She has two sisters, Lauren and Mary (Iris is in the middle.) She left home and enrolled in the state university, where she majors in English Lit. Iris has no idea what she wants to do with her life, but she doesn't pressure herself. In a lot of ways, she is old beyond her years, and she understands that life needs to be lived one day at a time.
