The Near Death Iris is the Iris possessed Hijiri Shinozuka.
|Near Death Iris|
To tell if someone is near death
This iris allows the user to see black butterflies around a person who is near death or is going to die in the close future. The more the butterflies, the closer the time is. The one downside to this Iris, is that it doesn't tell you how the person is going to die.
Hijiri, the user of this Iris, was able to see these black butterflies around things such as his grandpa and a cat. At first, he didn't know what these butterflies were, since he was the only one who could see them.
Hirjiri tried to test out what his Iris was and began to not water certain flowers in his school's garden, to see if they would die. Hijiri's Iris gave him a certain depressing outlook on life, making him not enjoy anything, because everything would die eventually.
- Black Butterflies are usually associated with death. In various parts of the world, like, Central America, Philippines, China, black butterflies are considered as a symbol of death. According to these people, a black butterfly or moth in the house is the warning of death of a member of the house. They also appear in the house when someone in the house has already died.
- Hijiri's iris is not absolute but only shows at least one possibility of the subject nearing death.
