Member of the Brotherhood
Something Wicca This Way Goes...?
- "Try to keep the pretty one alive. I can always use another plaything."
- —Irena talking about Tyler.
The Charmed Ones approached Irena when the demon Zankou had stolen the Book of Shadows. The sisters tried to form a desperate alliance with the vampires against their common enemy, but Zankou had foreseen the attack and had convinced the queen to betray the sisters.
After the Brotherhood cast the spell to trap San Francisco outside of space and time, Irena claimed her own territory and gained access to an unlimited supply of mortals to feed on. She also turned Taylor into a vampire and used her to emotionally hurt Billie Jenkins. She later took the allies of the Chosen hostage and was particularly interested in Tyler due to his youth and looks. She was later confronted by the Chosen and nearly defeated them, though she was stakes by Taylor, who wanted to kill Billie herself. With Irena vanquished, her entire hive was killed except for Taylor, who instead took in her essence and became the new queen.
