Irma is very quirky and very social. She loves adventures and the company of others. She's very bubbly and careless about things. She does her best to avoid embarresing moments and has a habit of winking at others. She can be easily angered if a boy acts sexist around her and her and she gets really mad.

6 and under

Irma was the youngest daughter of a family of 10. Nobody liked Irma because she was little and she didn't understand as much as her older siblings. Her Father loved her dearly and treated her like a favorite child. Irma loved to draw. She started out being bad at drawing and got better and better. The rich family ended up with barely any money and had to move to a smaller house. They all had to share rooms. Irma's mother became very strict to Irma(Due to her being youngest)and she did all the chores. Irma's Father eventually passed away leaving Irma with no hope. Irma's family took her for granted and they teased her. Irma still didn't care and just played with her

drawings. She then became very independent from her family and never spoke at dinner. Her Mother came into her room one day and saw she had been drawing the whole time. Irma's Mother took all of Irma's arts and craft supplies in hope she would spend more time with them. But she didn't. Irma's Mother was out for a walk and Irma's three older sisters threw her out of the house and into the dark cold rain. Irma decided to go find shelter and found a little tree to go under. She sat there cold and shivering until two men came along and put her in a sack. She was thrown out into a normal room to see the two men. They said their names were Kevin and Dave and asked her name. Irma wouldn't say her name to them knowing her Father told her not to talk to strangers. She would never speak to the men or have any communication with them for the past three days. She got very hungry so Kevin gave her some food. Irma at first didn't want any but was eventually tempted to eat it. Once she took a small bite she felt very dizzy and her eyesight started to blur. She fell into a deep sleep and Dave and Kevin took her to a castle where she was thrown into a dungen. She couldn't get out and became homesick. She was fed by a mysterious person who never gave their name or took off their hood. She remained in the cell for the next two years.


Irma living a miserable life finally managed to escape thanks to the hooded stranger who gave themself the name of Gerald. He brought her out of the castle and he took her to his home. He showed Irma his beautiful daughter

Maria. Irma and Maria were goodfriends and spent a lot of time together. They treated each other like sisters. Gerald once let a "friend" come over. His name was Black Doom and he was helping with an experiment. When Irma asked what the experiment was Gerald said she wouldn't understand. Once Irma met Shadow she instantly fall in love. The only problem was he hung out with Maria much more than her. One day Gerald took Maria, Shadow and Irma onto an ARK for a while. Irma spent the next two years there.


Once the space colony ARK was under attack Maria, Shadow, Irma and Gerald went to a room.Shadow was the first to go through the escape pods along. Irma was sent in the next one along with a little blue ball given to her by Gerald. Irma didn't know if Gerald and Maria were alright. Once Irma landed into Earth she saw the blue ball cracked as a little person came out. Irma had a closer look and saw a fairy inside. The fairy grew into the size of a 5 year old girl. She introduced herself as Fawn. Her and Fawn had many adventures together. Irma once again was reunited with Shadow and Irma introduced him to Fawn. Shadow later discovered GUN were taking over and the three friends split up to stop them. When Irma and Fawn were kidnapped as bait for Shadow. When Irma was being annoying and causing trouble GUN couldn't take it and attempted to shoot her but instead Fawn got in the way and got shot instead. She fell to the floor sick as a GUN agents purposly crushed her. Irma was so disgusted she attacked GUN and it was discovered she could fight defeating every GUN member knocking them out cold. Irma looked to the floor in panic for her fairy friend. Fawn was incredibly injured and told Irma it was up to her and Shadow to stop GUN from making the mistake of their life as Fawn wasted her last breathe. Irma, in disgrace, left to find Shadow taking the lifeless fairy with her. Once she found Shadow again who had left to save her she pulled out Fawn and cried. Shadow hugged Irma knowing how close the two of them were. They later buried Fawn in her grave in honor of her bravery. The two later went to the GUN machine used to destroy everyone. Shadow left into the machine to disarm it leaving Irma behind so she wouldn't get hurt. Shadow came out and pushed Irma into a safe distance as the machine blew up. Irma and Shadow got up and saw nothing but a destroyed machine covered in fire. As Shadow had a talk with Maria's spirit as Irma watched in amazement. Maria then said her goodbyes as her spirit crossed over. Shadow looked into his hands to see the necklace Maria had given him as he calls out he will keep on fighting.


Irma went back to her old home with Shadow to see her home. All she saw was a dusty wrecked home. Irma's family was no longer there. She shed a tear which ran down her body. Shadow put his arm on her shoulder and told her it was alright. The two went into an apartment and shared it as roommates later on. Irma and Shadow became good friends. Irma got a part time job designing clothes for models and drew in her notebook lots of designs for her clothes. Irma loved her new life and grew very smiley and never cried. She decided to go to high school and easily became popular. Some say she thought about letting her past beside her. She never spoke of it and had so much fun with Shadow. She bought a Chillarmy called Bubbles. Shadow and Irma became best friends and the two enjoyed themselves. Irma made a lot of friends and became very social. Irma's life was finally perfect.
