[VILLAIN] Spectral Empress Iliess.
Japanese name: 妖帝イリエス
Romanized name: Youtei Iriesu
Alignment: Space Pirates Balban
Inspiration: Ancient Egyptian
From: Seijuu Sentai Gingaman
- Her uncle was Bucrates and her brother was Desphias.
- She was one of two Balban generals to ever become a giant in Gingaman. Iliess did so without needing the Balba-X potion.
- Iliess’ majin minions were inspired by a variety of mythologies.
- Her strategies to revive Daitanix typically required a specific number of victims/sacrifices (i.e., 39 people trapped in 39 mirrors and 81 beautiful virgins).
- Her second and final form was Evil Empress Iliess (邪帝イリエス; Jatei Iriesu).
- Aside from anime, Iliess’ voice actor Gara Takashima has also dubbed various female actors in western movies - including Carrie Fisher, Demi Moore, Michelle Pfeiffer and Sharon Stone. She played Catwoman in the Japanese version of Batman: The Animated Series. Gara is married to Banjou Ginga, who has voiced characters in several tokusatsu series.
