Iron Rain was a member of the Empire Eighty-Eight who died before the story began.


Described as inheriting her father's savagery and as a "rallying point for the Empire's more brutish racists", and actually believing in the ideology of E88 in contrast to her brother who only used it to gain power.[1]

Abilities and PowersEdit

Iron Rain was capable of materializing ferrous metal objects in midair in the shape of spears, blades, and weights.[2] These form at higher or lower altitudes, with their flight controlled using minor ferrokinesis which she used to aim them, sometimes sacrificing accuracy for penetrating power.

Had the ability to 'charge' her power, manifesting a larger number of ferrous objects.[1]



Murdered before the start of the story, though her murderer's identity is not confirmed. Marquis confessed to Iron Rain's murder, though he seems to have been covering for someone else.[3] He may have confessed this to get a message to his daughter, Panacea. While Dragon's records indicate that Marquis is officially her killer, Jack Slash of the Slaughterhouse Nine is skeptical of the claim.

  2. Iron Rain / Materialized metal blades at high altitudes, minor ferrokinesis allowed some aiming of the falling spears/blades/weights. / E88 - Parahumans list, bolded edit by Wildbow
  3. Kaiser did have a sister that was killed. That much was true. Dragon would have seen through it otherwise. But Marquis took credit for it when he wasn’t the culprit. - Comment by Wildbow on Interlude 18.y
