Irid is the first Sun-Priest encountered by Aloy when he visits Mother's Heart. He is a member of the foreign envoy sent by Sun-King Avad to visit the Nora tribe during the Proving ceremony and deliver a message of apology for the actions of the 13th Sun-King. However, just as Irid began recite Avad's words, the Nora, still bitter over the Red Raids, began pelting him with fruit. Luckily for Irid, before things could escalate, Erend stepped forth and told the Nora of Avad's role in ending his father's tyranny and encouraged them to allow Irid to speak. With the crowd successfully calmed, Irid continued without interruption.
