"When we get there, we'll be different. We'll be ready."
—Iris to Hope about venturing to New York.[src]

Iris Bennett is one of two protagonists and a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead: World Beyond. She is the adoptive sister of Hope and daughter of Kari and Leopold Bennett. She is also a former resident of the Campus Colony of Omaha, one of three cities part of the Alliance of the Three.


Iris is a well-liked, above-average high school student whose spent the decade since the world ended living in relative safety with her adopted sister behind the walls of a thriving community – a community that’s itself a satellite to an even larger, surviving city. A smart, no-nonsense student leader, Iris is proud to be following in her scientist father's footsteps to one day far in the future help bring back the world to what it was.[1]


Lincoln, Nebraska

Iris was born in Lincoln, Nebraska in the early 2000s, but was either orphaned or abandoned at infancy. In the orphanage, she was paired with another orphan, Hope. The two became inseparable to the point of sharing a crib together. Professor of Nebraska State University, Doctor Leopold Bennett, and his wife, Kari came to the orphanage with the intention of adopting one daughter. After seeing Iris and Hope, they decided to adopt them both.

Iris Bennett was then raised in Lincoln, Nebraska by Leo and Kari along with her adoptive sister, Hope. She and Hope grew in a loving home and had an acceptable childhood in her adoptive family. In the fall of 2010, her father took in one of his students, Felix Carlucci, after he was kicked out of his parent's house for being gay. Despite not being officially adopted due to him being an adult, Felix was welcomed into the family by Iris and the rest and accepted him for who he was.
