Iridia was a rather homely little girl before she reached the age of her Terragenesis. She was teased ruthlessly by her classmates. When asked by the elders what she wanted from the Terragen mists, she merely stated, "I want to be less...ugly." When she emerged from the chamber, she had sprouted beautiful butterfly wings, large eyes, antennae, and had the power to fly. She was like a caterpillar breaking out of its cocoon. She was also one of the few Inhumans in the history of Attilan to be granted the power of flight, all because she wanted to be pretty.
