Iris Fortner is the female protagonist of Atelier Iris 3: Grand Phantasm.

Iris is living in Zey Meruze with Edge Vanhite in her family's workshop. She is currently the only alchemist in Zey Meruze, but also works as a Raider. She is an optimistic but clumsy person who always strives to do her best. She is still a beginning alchemist and raider, but she hopes to one day become a great alchemist.

She descends from one of nine powerful alchemists, and it will be revealed that she is the first seal for the Oroborus. She is also the protector of the Escalario.


Iris has an optimistic and a straightforward personality, but she can be clumsy at times. For example, while she cooks food or sort which Edge is a little concern. She really has no talent in cooking but she can make up for it through alchemy.

When the story progresses deeper, Crowley cursed Iris while she was vulnerable which causes Edge's anger towards him. It is stated by Crowley tells Iris to collect all the 8 fragments of the Escalario since she is the only one capable of obtaining them. Edge and Ellis then had a different idea which states that by collecting the fragments, they can make a wish to remove Iris's curse without the help of Crowley.

After fighting with Uroborus and seeing Edge tried his hardest to persuade Uroborus to spare humanity, Iris decides to use the wish in exchange for her life to seal away Oroborus which will save humanity. If the player manages to complete the "Truth in Darkness" mission before fighting Uroborus, Iris will reappear back in the Forest of Valtessa a year later after being set free by Escalario. If fail to complete the mission, Iris will die saving the world from Uroborus.
