Commander Irani Rael is Nova Prime of the Nova Corps.


Guardians of the Galaxy

Nova Prime Irani Rael is in charge of Nova Corps operations throughout the galaxy. From her base of operations on Xandar, the principled and efficient Nova Prime leads her forces with confidence. She defines her mission above all to protect the citizens of Xandar and keep peace.

In reaction to attacks undertaken by Ronan the Accuser against Xandarian worlds, Rael demands an official response to these actions by the Kree Empire but her demands are disregarded as being unimportant for the Kree.

She later commands the Nova Corps troops during the battle over Xandar and officially pardons Peter Quill and his friends as well as locking up the Power Stone in a vault.
