Early life Alice's early history is very vague, as she remembers nothing of her human life. She was born around 1901 in Biloxi, Mississippi and was kept in an asylum because she had premonitions, which carried over and intensified into her "special ability" when she was changed into a vampire. She became the favorite of a older vampire who worked at the asylum, and James, a tracker vampire, began to hunt her because the smell of her blood appealed to him. When the older vampire realized that James was after Alice, he changed her into a vampire to protect her. James then killed the other vampire, out of revenge. After doing some research, Alice discovered that her date of death on her tombstone is the same date that she was admitted into the asylum. She also uncovered that she had a sister named Cynthia, and that Cynthia's daughter, Alice's niece, is still alive in Biloxi.
Appearance Alice shares many of the physical traits associated with Twilight vampires, such as inhuman beauty, pale skin, golden eyes which deepen to black depending on thirst, and deep, purple shadows under her eyes. She is described as being small, 4'10", with petite, "pixie-like" features. Her hair is described as cropped, spiky, and black. She carries herself with the grace of a dancer when walking, and it is mentioned that with her agility she could make even a ballerina jealous.
Vampire Traits Alice has enhanced strength and speed due to her vampire status. Though petite, she is a capable fighter due to her agility and speed. Alice carried her human ability to read the future into her vampire life, and uses this to her advantage during battles (as seen in Eclipse) and throughout her day-to-day life. However, Alice's sight is limited: she can only see the outcome of a decision - not the motives behind it. Also, the future is subjective and Alice cannot see it once werewolves become involved. This is a mystery that Carlisle has theorized is due to the unpredictability of the werewolves (they change shape very quickly, etc). Alice, while talking about her talent, describes herself as being "far from infallible" overall.
