Iris Cantus can also hurl three spears at your team that inflict damage. She does this several times during the fight and it can deplete your team's HP if not avoided.

Iris Cantus can summon rain from the sky that damages and poisons your team for as long as you stay under it.

She can summon this rain on both sides of the arena and your team will only have a narrow path where you can dodge the spears safely. Tread carefully!
