Early Life

Alice appears to have been born and raised in Manchester, along with her two brothers[1]. She may have been a Manchester United fan, their colours seeming to be a regular part of her wardrobe[2][1].

Her grandfather was "music mad" and took her to football matches from a young age - after one of which introducing her to Tony Wilson[3].

Other details of her upbringing are scarce. She used to enjoy getting chips on a Friday night, and her father had a GPS unit in his car[4]. Her mother used to pray for lottery numbers[5].

Post Crash

After the Crash Alice and her brothers worked with the Deansgate Crew, ascending the Beetham Tower on ropes[6]. They also came under mortar fire from Moss Side[7].

Her brothers ran food, fuel and guns into Manchester along the Manchester Ship Canal from Ireland[8]. They had the bad fortune to become involved with the exiled FreakAngel Mark Fox who became a member of their operation. When confronted with their suspicions that he was skimming money off the top he murdered them both, in front of Alice[8]. He used this opportunity to get deep into Alice's mind[9], planting a command to travel to Whitechapel and kill his fellow FreakAngels[10].

To carry out this command Alice walked the 300 or so kilometres (190 miles) from Manchester to London[11].

Whitechapel

On arrival in Whitechapel Alice confronted Connor[12]. She attempted to carry out her instructions but was prevented by KK and Sirkka who cleaned out her mind[13]. She was offered a job on the Whitechapel Watchtower[14] and played a crucial part in alerting the settlement to the New Cross attack[15]. As a result she was made an "honorary FreakAngel"[16].

Alice has continued to man the Watchtower, noticeably during the attack by Buckland's refugees[17]. As of Book Three she has stuck at the job for a week - equaling any of the others assigned to assist Kirk - and has rigged up a series of ascender ropes[18][19].

She is the only non-FreakAngel in Whitechapel aware of their abilities[20], although she is currently unaware of their role in the Crash. Her status as an honorary FreakAngel does not extend to having a say in "FreakAngel Business"[21].

Her experience with Mark has left her with a strong dislike of mind-manipulation[22][23]. After the events of Book Three she has developed a similarly strong dislike of Luke[24]. This culminates with her and Jack's hunting down and execution of him in Book Four.
