Secret Society holoX's insurance policy.
Hailing from a remote mountainous area, she left her home behind and, along with her companion, set off on a journey to achieve her dream of seeing and learning more about the outside world.
Nowadays, she handles security detail and bodyguard missions for holoX, making enough money to get by.
Iroha is a soft-spoken and playful, but somewhat clumsy person. Many fans describe her as the most "seiso" member of her generation and one of the most "seiso" in hololive overall besides members like Tokino Sora, though Iroha doesn't think of herself as such.
