Secondary power: Mind control
Pet: Leafy (turtle)
Irma first appeared in W.I.T.C.H. issue #1, Halloween. She was first seen using her mind control powers to get the teacher to ask her about the stone-age when he called on her, since it was the only thing that she studied.
Irma is always the life of the party, even if she does arrive late to a lot of events. She's the prankster of the group and often jokes around about the situations they get into. Her friends don't always take her seriously because of this, even if she's not joking about something. She's also very impulsive and has a bit of a "big mouth," which gets her into trouble a lot. She's been known to use her powers for selfish gain as well, such as transforming her body to impress boys and having her astral drop study and take tests for her. Despite all of this, when it all comes down to it, Irma's very clever and the girls can depend on her when they're in a tight spot.
Irma's really into music, Karmilla being her favorite singer, and enjoys shopping, taking long baths, and making up nicknames for her friends. Her favorite food is chocolate cream puffs.
Irma's father, Tom Lair, is a police officer for Heatherfield. Her real mother died when she was only three years old and her father remarried a woman named Anna Bannister. Irma also has a younger half-brother (or step-brother, depending on what you're looking at) named Christopher, who annoys her to no end.
