Irv Manders is a resident living in Hastings Glen. He is married to Norma Manders, with whom he lives on the farm.


In Firestarter Irv Manders offers Charlie and Andy a ride in his truck. Aware of the polices search for father and daughter, he invites them to his house for lunch.

After a conversation with Andy who goes by Frank at the time, Irv realizes there is more to the search than the police lets on. Andy and Charlie seem to have a good relationship with each other and it is not in Charlie's interest to be found.  But before Irv can be convinced by Andy's stories, The Shop shows up at the farm.

Charlie sets The Shop members on fire to protect her father and the farm burns down with them. In the meantime, Irv gets shot and the house starts being lit on fire.
