|“||Be careful of the dark, Octavia. Too easy to lose your way.||”|
|— Indra to Octavia [src]|
Indra and her people were initially at war with the Sky People until their Commander called a truce. Indra remained distrustful of the Sky People but was willing to train with them for the sake of the alliance. Eventually, she took one of them on as her Second. After Lexa sounds the retreat, Indra obeys and leaves the Sky People to fend for themselves against Mount Weather. Later, Indra shows that she struggles with that decision by helping Lincoln escape so he can help the Sky People
In Season Three, Indra goes with several hundred other Grounders to Arkadia to protect them from the Azgeda. However, under Charles Pike's leadership, Arkadians slaughtered the whole army except for Indra. Indra was later imprisoned by followers of A.L.I.E. after she refused to take the chip. She escaped with John Murphy, Pike, and some of her people but was hunted down by A.L.I.E. and hung up on a cross by Marcus Kane who had become chipped. She was freed from the cross by Skaikru after Clarke destroyed A.L.I.E.
Early life Edit
Indra was born on Earth and is a Trikru warrior. Indra trained her daughter, Gaia, to become a Trikru warrior and leader, but Gaia instead chose to follow the faith and become a Keeper of the Flame. At some point, Indra became the Chief of Tondc. Indra mentions that she has known Lincoln since he was a boy and recognizes a Reaper as someone she previously knew.
Throughout the Series Edit
Indra is an experienced warrior who possesses strong leadership qualities. She is extremely loyal to her people, Trikru. She is distrustful of the Sky People. She is smart at making plans and is honest, as shown when she fulfilled her end of the deal when Octavia bargained for Lincoln's life. Indra shows a soft side when she gives Lincoln a warm hug after he helps save her life and her people's lives.
Physical Appearance Edit
Indra has dark brown skin and brown eyes. She has short, black hair with an average build. She has multiple scars (presumably from battle) and tattoos on her face. She dresses in traditional Grounder clothing.
In Season 5, after the 6 years and 7 days jump, Indra's hair is slightly longer and is shaved on one side of her head.
- Main article: Octavia and Indra
Indra at first seems very distrustful of Octavia, and slightly angered that she took Nyko hostage and forced her to give back Lincoln in order to get Nyko back. She orders Octavia to be killed in Reapercussions, but Octavia manages to escape. Later, Indra allows Octavia to follow her and her fellow Grounders and be the bait for the Reapers. At one point during the battle with the Reapers, Octavia saves Indra's life. Afterward, Indra allows Octavia to live because she has proved herself well.
In Survival of the Fittest, Octavia fights off one of Indra's Grounders. In this fight, Indra sees a "strength of spirit" in Octavia and asks Octavia to be her Second. Octavia agrees and follows Indra everywhere, taking orders from her and being trained to become a warrior.
In Blood Must Have Blood (Part 1), Indra is proud of Octavia when she helps lead them through the Reaper mines and to Mount Weather and tells her she is now one of them. When Octavia refuses to leave after the retreat is heard, Indra cuts Octavia and tells her she is no longer her Second. Later, however, in Blood Must Have Blood (Part 2), Indra provides Lincoln with a knife so he can escape and find Octavia.
Indra is Lincoln's chief. She captured Lincoln for helping the enemy (Octavia) while their clan was weak. After Octavia demands a swap for Nyko, her only healer, she agrees to let Lincoln go. When Octavia gets angry that Lincoln is injured, she states that Lincoln should be dead, implying that they would have finished the "death by a thousand cuts" punishment for Lincoln since he had betrayed his clan.
She continues to view Lincoln as a traitor to his people, even when he digs her out of the rubble after the Tondc bombing and carries her to safety when she is hit by the sniper. After Lincoln returns from killing the sniper, Indra welcomes him back with a handshake and a hug. Later, Octavia tells Indra that it meant a lot that she forgave Lincoln. After Lincoln is tied up for not wanting to retreat with the grounders when Lexa called a truce with the Mountain Men, Indra gives him a knife so he can free himself and find Octavia.
Indra is Nyko's leader and Nyko is a healer for Indra's clan. Indra was willing to exchange Lincoln for Nyko when Octavia held him captive. She later leads a rescue mission to find Nyko after the Reapers take him at the end of Inclement Weather. She seems relieved to have found him and helps him to his feet in Reapercussions. Nyko helps save her life in "Resurrection" after she is shot by a sniper.
Indra initially viewed Kane as an invader like the rest of the Sky People and wished for the Commander to let her kill him. Eventually, they begin to develop a working relationship for the benefit of the alliance as seen in Survival of the Fittest.
In Wanheda (Part 1), Indra and Kane have established a way of communicating with each other (three clicks over a radio) and Indra calls upon Kane for help with protecting Clarke from the bounty on her head and Kane brings in Bellamy and Monty to assist them.
In Ye Who Enter Here, she greets Kane and Abby] as they explore the capital, it is clear she and Kane have now developed a friendship since he refers to her as "my friend". She then leads them to the Polis tower to be reunited with Clarke.
In Hakeldama, Clarke requests that Indra radio Kane. He gets her signal but sends Octavia instead since he is aware Pike is watching his every move.
In Perverse Instantiation (Part 1), Indra, Miller, Bryan, Murphy, Bellamy and Pike have set up a bomb to take out the chipped victims coming to attack them. Indra notices Kane is too close to the bomb and saves his life though she is unable to escape with the others.
In Perverse Instantiation (Part 2), Indra is mentioned by Kane to be "on the cross, suffering needlessly" when Octavia tricks him into thinking she'll take the chip. It can be assumed that he was the one who hung her there.
In God Complex, Kane goes to meet Indra with Monty and Jaha. Kane, trying to be friendly, smiles at Indra, but she punches him in the face.
Indra was loyal to Lexa. She always obeyed Lexa even when she did not agree with her decisions as it was shown that she did not agree with having an alliance with the Sky People. She also did not agree with the retreat from Mount Weather nor Lexa's decision that blood must have not blood in "Hakeldama".
