You aren't alone in this Hailey, you'll come back to Pikoro someday, I promise; but right now, this is the best we can do for the people of Pikoro. I know it feels like giving up, but it's not. As a Lord, you have to do what's best for your people... and it may not feel like the right thing right now, but through dark times, they need you to smile.
|Aphmau to Hailey, Aaron's Sword, S3E32|
Over 1000 years old
Leader of The Phoenix Alliance
Lord of Phoenix Drop
Aphmau returned from a trip overseas during the three year time skip and had already given birth to Alina during the skip.
In EP 1 and 2, after finding out that Zane has returned and that Aaron is gone but his body is intact, she first interrogated him along with Garroth, using his relic as a threat if he doesn't speak and questions him about Aaron. She then along with Garroth and Katelyn went to Bright Port to deal with the matter according to what Zane said and went into the Nether. There she saw Laurance, who now resides in the Nether, Gene along with Shad, who now resides in Aaron's body, greatly shocking her. He follows them out of the Nether where he easily defeats the barrier that Hailey had set up over the Nether portal. Stunned over the fact that he looks like Aaron, Shad confirms that Aaron is dead but he uses his body as a vessel, angering her over thinking that who she's seeing was thought to be Aaron, still alive and evil, and that Aaron's soul will not get to rest in peace after she understood his sacrifice back in EP81 from his letter in EP84 as noted to Katelyn in the next episode. After sensing Alina nearby, Shad demanded Aphmau to hand her over as she is also his daughter and holds his relic, causing her to locks swords with him and angrily refusing to hand over Alina as she believes that Shad will do something very bad to Alina if he has his hands on her.
Aphmau then started following Alina everywhere she goes after the warning and in EP 3, she went to Emmalyn's house to learn more info about Shad. There she saw Zoey's messenger fairy who told her to meet her in the Yggdrasil Forest to deal with the Heart of Darkness who demands for her to come, as Lady Irene.
While getting permission from Dante about the departure, she learned that he was the reason for Gene's death after he tried to alter the Lord of Oboros' daughter's memories.
When she met Zoey at the Yggdrasil Forest and the Heart of Darkness in her house in the form of Shad, he questions her why she could've have done something to him. Aphmau states that she doesn't know.
After Shad disappeared as the Heart of Darkness, she and Zoey went to the elder of her village as he waiting for her. He later explained that Aphmau must find all of the Divine Warriors' descendants and their relics to stop Shad, and that as Lady Irene, she should know who they are and where. Aphmau, telling him that she doesn't know who and where they are, thanked him for the info.
She later returned to the village elder in the next episode after Alina started to have her relic's power leaked out from her and was given a bottle to help soothe the pain if she releases her powers again and goes berserk.
After Levin decides to go back to the Phoenix Capital, she realized that Travis is there and that he is the descendant of one of the Divine Warriors, Enki, and decides that once they reach the Phoenix Capital, she should look for him.
While on the boat heading towards the Phoenix Capital, she helps Levin bandaged his hand after she lost her healing powers after giving birth to Alina and also stopped Katelyn and Garroth's fight over Liochant's trust since he's from Tu'la. The next morning, because Liochant himself overheard their conversation, Aphmau has declared him her personal guard and no longer Alina's and Lilith's until they safely meet Travis.
When she and Liochant met with Travis, she was shocked to hear that Travis accidentally revealed his Demon Warlock nature and caused the village to fear him. While getting ready to head to Enki Island, she noticed that her daughter, Alina sneaked on board, Aphmau decides that Alina will come to the portal, where Alina inadvertently used the relic to open the portal when Travis could not. Aphmau tried to congratulate her and let Alina play with Katelyn while she and Travis head to the Demon Warlock.
The Demon Warlock mocked Aphmau as Lady Irene and not having her memories, with Aphmau insisting that she is Aphmau and not Irene. This gave the two enough time for Travis to slain his father and get the Enki Relic.
After Katelyn let him and Alina rest after Travis collapsed from his injuries, she and Katelyn decided to held to the ruins where they could find more info about Enki and Irene since the relic didn't go to Travis immediately. While at the ruins, Aphmau could only find the diary of Enki's love to Irene when she gets near a wall. The relic reacted to the wall and a secret door open, so Aphmau and Katelyn explore what's inside.
When Aphmau and Katelyn look at the books trying to find clues about Enki, Katelyn lend her a book that was previously empty, but now full of words. When Aphmau touched the book, she is suddenly flooded with memories and had a vision of her past as Lady Irene. She then decided to head back to the Phoenix Alliance Island with Garroth and the others and Travis revealed that he didn't want to have the power of the descendant of Enki due to his nature as son of the Demon Warlock, much to her shock.
Back at the Alliance Island, Aphmau reunited with Malachi, who told her that Pikoro Village was under attack by Shadow Knights, who were looking for Alina according to survivors. She decides that they have to go to Hyria in the Sacred Forest, for questions and for sanctuary.
Aphmau asked for Hyria about information about Irene and the visions about seeing Shad and Irene where she experienced the same thing Irene experience. Hyria theorized that the relic has some of Irene's memories and how Shad's relic is calling out to Irene's relic. Aphmau only knew about how the relic was made to give to the Divine Warriors and that she needs to fine more information. She also asked Hyria to take care of Alina and Lilith since they're too young to take care of themselves.
Aphmau asked if Hyria knows where Lucinda is and Hyria said that she's wandering all over the area of Pikoro Village. Aphmau decides to change her clothes since Shad saw her and heads off. While asking for directions to Pikoro, a young man recognized her as Lady Irene and asked her to heal a sick young man as the Matron after telling her directions.
Realizing that telling him that she can't heal won't go anywhere, Aphmau ponders about her ability to heal after she did it on Dante back in Season 2, and fearing that everyone who looks up to her will be disappointed if she tells the truth. The heavy thought on her mind about how no one understand her unexpected powers from the relic and simply assume that she is related to Irene or insist that she is Irene herself and how to explain that she lost that power caused her to faint all of a sudden.
Aphmau was rescued by Hailey who was surprised about her going solo. She talked about what happened in Pikoro and Hailey's reassurance as a Lord and she revealed that she is engaged to the lord's son in Skystead. They go to Lucinda's house to find more information about Lucinda's whereabouts, when the guards arrive to bring Hailey to Skystead.
Aphmau followed her to Skystead to look for Hailey in the guard station and a guard revealed that she's with Lord Janna. She barges in to save Hailey as a handmaid named "Apple" as a means to avoid revealing her identity as Irene which will attract Shadow Knights after she made a mistake interrupting their conversation. She helped Hailey talk about Aaron's relationship as a way to help her get some ideas for the date as she doesn't know Janna's son, even mentioning his "sharp sword" (which is a hidden weenie joke).
After Aphmau escorts Hailey to Balder, Janna's son, she secretly decides to spy on their conversation, hoping that things go right. While spying on her, Shad surprises her from behind, having found her presence. Aphmau tried to deny seeing him as Shad precedes to attack her. Aphmau tries to attack Shad to get him away from Hailey as she leads him farther away from the forest.
She managed to loose track of him but he manage to attack her and talked about how Irene loved privacy and is the woman everyone loved. Aphmau denies about being Irene and admits that she is someone else, but, much to her disappointment, Shad pins her to a tree and still calls her Irene, thinking that she changed completely, which intrigues him. Still not giving up on being an original person and not a reawakened goddess, Aphmau says that he still doesn't know her true strength, but was shocked when Shad decides to be Aaron just to get her to bring Alina by perfectly imitating how Aphmau wanted to be together with him, and almost fell for his ruse until Shad mention Irene, which Aphmau knew that Aaron and Shad never knew Aphmau is Irene and Irene is Aphmau, respectively.
Shad proceeds to kill her, until the real Aaron halts his body and tells her to run. She ran back trying to deny what happened to Shad and Aaron, but shakes her head trying to find Hailey. She panics when she finds her not there until she found Balder taking her unconscious back to Skystead. Balder is shocked to find her unruly behavior as a handmaid and proceeds to get her using his dagger (again, another hidden weenie joke). Balder revealed that he has everyone from Pikoro hostage just to get Hailey to accept the marriage as they have no where to go.
Aphmau is angered that Lord Janna tricked Hailey and kicks Balder in the stomach, telling him to flee. She later help wake Hailey up where she will explain about her supposed "date" with Shad in a different place as the place there are in is not safe.
When she and Hailey return back to the camp of the survivors, she explained that she wasn't on a date with a Shadow Knight, rather, she was fighting against Shad, the Shadow Lord, himself, much to Hailey's shock. They then heard reports that the guards are after Hailey and while she helps escort the Pikoro survivors away from the guards, she and Hailey help fight off an ambush of guards, before Hailey decides to let Aphmau run to help escort more survivors while she deals with the guards.
After Aphmau escorted the last of the survivors, she was shocked to see Hailey not there where she hoped they would meet, and realized that must've been captured by the guards. While spying on the entrance to Skystead, an apple fell on her head. She picks it up and was reminded of a time when she met Aaron. Suddenly, a man in a dress asked if she was going to eat it and Aphmau says she wasn't. The man snatched the apple and, along with another one, stuff it in his chest to look like breasts. He explained that he's planning on crashing the wedding by dressing up as a servant maid and that he had done this before. Aphmau plead him to help her enter the wedding to save Hailey, and the man accepts on one condition that they never meet each other again and pretend like nothing happened.
The man gave Aphmau a dress to look like a maid and helps her enter the palace. Aphmau searched for Hailey and found her standing in a wedding dress. Hailey asked why she's here and Aphmau says that she's rescuing her, they don't have much time, and the dress she's wearing is a long story. Suddenly, Lord Janna's voice was heard behind the door and Hailey pushed Aphmau into a closet. She overheard how Lord Janna wants the marriage to happen so that she can expand her army to surpass that of O'Khasis. Aphmau was surprised to hear that Lord Janna happened to know where another Divine Warrior relic is as a means to push Hailey to marriage.
After she gets out of the closet, she and Hailey talk about how Lord Janna is a crazy, power-hungry lord and that she wants to use the relic's whereabouts as a means to push Hailey, since she does meet with powerful figures. Aphmau decides to find a way out and Hailey mention that she could use her Irene-powers, which cause her to remember Shad's words about using her powers to create mass destruction, and wants to find a different way without using violence. They tried to find any possible route, including a secret escape route, the window and even going out the room they are in, but to no avail.
Since there are guards outside Hailey's room, she thinks that Aphmau can use her body as a charm to seduce them, and Aphmau refuses, saying that Hailey should do it. She then mention that she was once forced to marry Fenrir, the prince of the South Eastern Wolf Tribe way back in Season 2, and to this day, they are still looking for her and agrees with Hailey's stress. Aphmau also didn't want to explain what happen at her forced wedding due to what Laurence did in a fit of rage; he killed Fenrir's entire family, even his father, except for his mother in anger for not protecting Aphmau and exposing his new identity as a Shadow Knight. Aphmau then heads out with a plan to destroy the artifact that Lord Janna set up that seals Hailey's ability to use magic in order to prevent her from escaping.
While looking around, she meets the same man in the dress from earlier and after another argument, two guards entered the room. Aphmau tried to think of an excuse to find a way out when she was saved by another man in a dress, who knocked the guards out with a frying pan. He told her about the man, whose name is revealed to be Garry, is the actual true thief and Garry then told Aphmau that he was planning to use her as a decoy to help escape in his plan of stealing, and in anger, the second man hit him with the frying pan.
The second man explained that he works undercover to protect the maids from being harassed by perverted men during Lord Janna's big events and Garry happened to caught him undressing so he was forced to have Garry help him so that his job remains a secret, but Garry used his plan for his own selfish needs. Aphmau explained that she came to Skystead to rescue Hailey, who is being forced to marry against her will, in which the man mention that he thought she was madly in love with Balder due to a rumor that Lord Janna spread. The man agrees to help her since he doesn't want to see a woman forced into a loveless marriage and knows everything about the castle, the guards trust him and his disguise is perfect.
The man, whose name is Lo (since he doesn't want to reveal his real name to those he doesn't trust), then leads Aphmau outside the room. When the two were outside, Aphmau was concerned about Lo's disguise and the use of oranges as fake boobs, wondering if anyone found out he was a guy, with Lo telling her to act normal. Just then, several handmaidens told Lo of a problem in the kitchen. Despite Aphmau wanting to a find a way to save Hailey, they went to the kitchen and spot a guard harassing a woman after he saved her in the woods from a beast. Lo and Aphmau then demand the guard to stop as it's not right to ask a woman to date him immediately after he saves her and that she has the right to say no even though he did save her and that her family would have support. The girl greatly thanked Aphmau and Lo and returned back to her chores.
Later, Aphmau and Lo returned to Hailey's chamber where Aphmau reintroduced Lo to Hailey as she recognized him as the maiden who helped her get in a wedding dress. Aphmau reassured Hailey that Lo will help them escape and Lo followed them out the chamber. Once they are out however, several guards surrounded the trio as a thief (assumingly Garry) told them of a spy and Lord Janice knocked all three out with the artifact. She then demands Hailey to be put back in her room on tightened security and sentenced Aphmau and Lo to execution.
When the two woke up in the dungeon, Aphmau is horrified at how she and Lo are stripped into their underwear. Lo is upset that he had to encounter Garry, who told the guards his secret. Aphmau is confused on why Lord Janna is so power-hungry and Lo explains her backstory as a soldier who was chosen by the people to be the lord. At first, she was humble and kind, however over time Lord Janna got corrupted and lust for power.
The two then spot a cat that happen to get in the dungeon and they decide to persuade it to get the key hanging on the wall several cells away. The cat didn't listen and continues to look at Aphmau. Out of options, Lo asked Aphmau if she can do magic. Aphmau says she doesn't, however Lady Irene's voice in her head mocks her for denying her powers as her reincarnation. The guards come in and Lo tries to ask for clothes, only to be beaten up by them as punishment for lying and defying Lord Janna's rule.
As Aphmau watches in horror, Lady Irene suddenly took over after Aphmau told her to get out of her head after telling her to use the powers or else she will do it herself if she gives up. Her eyes turn pure white (making her look like Herobrine) and she easily broke down the iron bars (similar to what Garroth did in Emerald Secret) and knocks out the guards, before snapping back. Lo was surprised by what she did, but didn't want to ask her about what happened. The two then put on the guard armor and head off as a new disguise.
Once they escape, Lo told her that the maidens are in danger and are at the risk of harm at Janna's wedding. Aphmau and him head into the kitchen to warn the girls as they told them that he wedding is in an hour. Lo then told them to get out of the mansion ASAP as soon as they are done with work. They then head to Lord Hailey's chamber once again where they told her their plan when Lord Janna suddenly burst into the chamber. Apparently she is aware of their plan ever since Aphmau and Lo met and heard information from the guards down in the dungeon. Because of this, she knows exactly what their plan is and uses the artifact to immobilize them. Lo told her that she shouldn't use fear and treat the citizens as prisoners, and Janna exclaims that using fear is the only way she can be regconized. Aphmau threatened her not to kill Lo with a knife, however Janna knocked her out. This caused Lord Hailey to accidentally spill Aphmau's real name and everyone was shocked that "Apple" is actually Aphmau, the lord of Phoenix Drop, Lord Janna especially, as she orders the guards to gather warlocks and her belongings so that she can be a "special guest" at the wedding and also bring Lo to execution first before Hailey is married.
Aphmau wakes up in a blueish-white dress with Janna in front of her. She went on talking at how Aphmau's name is kept a secret from other regions yet she travels around the world with most around the Phoenix Drop area knowing her appearance. However, since Hailey accidentally spilled her name, Lord Janna now knows everything about Aphmau's hidden life and threatens to expose her identity to Tu'la if she wanted. Aphmau won't let her get away but she used Aaron's sword and placed it near her neck, mentioning that it has a very emotional bond with her. She also mention that she had an artist paint a portrait of her sleeping as she said that she looks ethereally beautiful when asleep. Janna then blackmail Aphmau that if she does an attempt to disrupt the wedding, she will release the painting all over the region. Lord Janna then has business with Hailey and the communication pendant and left the room, leaving Aphmau and the warlock alone. Lady Irene returned in her head, telling her that the only way to stop the wedding and Janna is to create a massacre and Aphmau realized that Irene must have read her memories back when Laurence created the massacre during the South Eastern Werewolf tribe wedding with Fenrir.
When Lord Janna returned Aphmau once again refused to come to the wedding, and this time Lord Janna had a new way to blackmail her: instead of revealing Aphmau's portrait to the rest of Ru'uant and Tu'la, after Aphmau says she doesn't care as long as Hailey is safe, she will spill information to Aphmau's enemies the location of her daughters by sending them a letter with Aphmau's painting in it, hoping that Lord Janna's warlocks, Aphmau's enemies, and/or even possibly Shad will find them and assasinate them, as she questioned Aphmau about how to get to the Sacred Forest, where they are being protected. Horrified, Aphmau had no choice but to go to the wedding.
Once Balter and Hailey made their vow, Lord Janna brings out Lo and decides to use Aaron's sword to execute him, as an example along with Aphmau that none should mess with her, meanwhile Aphmau demands to let them go since the wedding is over. The maidens return before Janna can execute Lo and say that she has to stop this since he saved them from being harassed by the guards, but Lord Janna slaps the redhead maid in the face, promising that she will execute them along with Lo before asking him his last words before she does it. Blaming herself for being stuck like this, Lady Irene ask her if she's ready to accept her powers and having no choice left, Aphmau agrees, and she and Irene become one. She summons a sword and kills the guards, causing mass panic in the altar.
Lord Janna watch with amusement as Aphmau demands her to repent while floating on top of the arch. She is then knocked down by Janna's artifact and is explained that she worked hard by warlocks to learn dark magic just to defeat Aphmau and she declares that she is Lady Irene, before throwing Lord Janna into the wall and passing out once again.
Aphmau wakes up in a black void where she hears the Irene voice speaking to her. She demands it to come out and answers some questions but the voice thinks she's not prepared to accept her powers. Aphmau wants to know as her entire life is about chasing after the goddess' footsteps and finding answers yet the voice says that she's not ready to accept her identity and wonders about calling the voice again when it lets her go. The voice then tells Aphmau to go back to the Enki library and there she will know the answer. Aphmau wakes up and Hailey told her that she was knocked out hard. Lo returns in a guard's outfit and the three maidens in safety, where they will go to the Alliance Island for safety after fearing Skystead will declare war on Pikoro after the wedding, since they wouldn't dare to declare war on the entire Phoenix Alliance. Aphmau then told them that she has to find Lucinda and Hailey offered to go with her but she refused, as the journey is on a personal level. Lo also wants to go, as a way to pay her back for what he did, but Aphmau wasn't so sure. Hailey then suggest that they all go to the Island where Aphmau can think of how she's going to find Lucinda.
Aphmau and Lo changed their clothes with Aphmau concerned about what's going to happen as soon as she reaches Enki Island. While heading on the boat, Malachi stops her and explains that Emmalyn is kidnapped and Kenmur is dead, both at the hands of Zane. Aphmau vows to stop him after what he made Aaron do that costs him his life. Lucinda arrives and offers to go with Aphmau to Enki Island with her.
During the boat ride, Aphmau offered to tell Lo her entire story all the way from “waking up” in Season 1 to where they stand now. When they arrived on the Island, Aphmau, Lo, and Lucinda grabbed winter garb and wanted to show Lo around, but the citizens are too hostile to speak to them, insulting them both due to their paranoia of the supernatural. Although Aphmau got angry at the remark, Lo told her to calm down and agree with her argument. It wasn’t until the citizens started to harassed Lucinda, due to her witch nature when she helped a child with her magic, that Aphmau decides to head to the library.
While there, as Lo prepares food, Aphmau experienced another flashback about Irene giving out the relics to Menphia. This caused her to determine Tu’la as their next destination to search for answers.
She has purple chainmail armor with a maroon chestplate over it along with light purple plates near the sides of her stomach. She also wears a gauntlet bracelet on her wrist and wears a light brown belt and a light purple miniskirt. She wears shorts underneath her skirt and has maroon and dark purple boots.
Her hair is black, and she has amber/light brown colored eyes, like the previous seasons.
Aphmau still retains her cheerful, sweet, thoughtful and serious personality from Season 1 and 2, but because she knows that she's Lady Irene and is supposed to have full memories from her past, Shad is on the run looking for her and Alina, and controlling Alina's powers from going berserk, she seems more stressed out than in Season 2 and is more likely to suffer from a bigger emotional breakdown as she now suffers a heavy load of issues to deal with. Because of this, she has to be more wise with her actions on her quest.
She is also worried about losing her identity as Aphmau once she regains all of her memories as Lady Irene and will possibly start calling herself that in the future, as she sighs with shame whenever someone calls her 'Irene'. She even tries to deny that she's Irene and that she's herself when enemies like Shad, the Heart of Darkness and the Demon Warlock insist that she's Irene. After hearing Irene's voice while being captured twice trying to save Hailey, and causing a massacre at her wedding, Aphmau is starting to refuse her destiny as the reincarnated goddess, knowing that she has the entire world's weight on her shoulders and the voice goading her to accept her true existence.
- Aphmau gets a new set of clothes/armor/skin this season.
- According to EP 9, Aphmau had lost her healing powers that she gained in Season 2, after Alina's birth and it is unknown what happened to them.
- In EP 27, it is revealed that she still has her powers, but has no idea how they work. In the same episode, her eyes glowed pure white and she was able to break through metal that was harder than steel. This could be Irene herself controlling her body.
- It was revealed in MyStreet: Her Wish that Aphmau might die.
