Here's what Executive Producer, Darren Swimmer, had to say about the character: “We’re excited about our new spin on the character Cleophas, who in the books was Luke’s mother. In the show she’s one of Luke’s sisters, a fierce, formidable presence and a woman of strong principles and conviction.”

The Iron Sisters have a similar role to The Silent Brothers in the Shadow World.
