Early Life Edit

Physical Appearance Edit
Alice is a young, pleasant-looking woman. She has strawberry-blond hair and a heart-shaped face. Her eyes are sweet but show a certain suffering. Her clothes are dirty and damaged, due to poor hygiene and poverty. Despite pale appearance due to bloodletting, since she became one of Mercy's prostitutes, Alice has a more refined appearance, wearing a clean red dress and with her hair falling in soft curls on her bare shoulders.
Alice is shy and timid, naive and sad for the misfortunes that have befallen her. Instead of enraged for her situation, Alice is quite sad and afraid of her uncle, that she despises. Since Alice has become one of the prostitutes of the Bird's Nest, she is more blatant and aware of her feminine wiles.
Throughout the Salem series Edit
Season Three Edit
Alice visits the Bird's Nest where she is greeted by a young prostitute who calls her by name, giving to understand that the two are known. After a short wait, Alice is approached by the owner of the brothel, Mercy Lewis, who invites her to climb into her private rooms where Alice is immediately drawn by the various birds in the cages hanging from the ceiling. Mercy is curious to know what prompted Alice to visit her, reassuring her that all frightened birds are safe in her nest. Alice tells how her uncle forced her into prostitution after the death of her parents and that he drinks all the money she earns. Irritated by this story, Mercy invites Alice to play Cat's Cradle. In reality the witch uses the intertwining of the string to kill at a distance Alice's uncle, breaking all his bones and throwing him out the window. Mercy invites Alice to stay at the Bird's Nest in exchange for personal favors, and Alice agrees as long as she is fed and warm. (After the Fall)
