Physical Description While for the most part Alexis is not very noticeable two things stand out about her. Depending on who you are the first thing is that her eyes are almost too large for her face, which can sometimes make her look bug-eyed. The second thing is that she is extremely curvy with an hourglass figure, though she is a bit top heavy. Alexis has dark brown hair that is nearly black, though if she spends a lot of time in the sun she winds up with golden chestnut highlights. She typically wears her hair down unless she is playing, then she pulls it back into a ponytail or bun to keep it out of her way. She also has long delicate fingers perfect for making music.

Personality & Traits

General Overview For the most part Alexis is a happy laid back person. She can be snarky at times but never means it as cruel. Lex is not the kind of person to hurt the feelings of others to make herself feel better. At the same time she can be rather blunt and up front about her thoughts and feelings. She hates to feel helpless and even more when other people treat her like she's helpless. For the most part she is slow to anger but being treated like she's a cripple sets her off, even Nico and Liam have gotten the sharp side of her tongue on that one. Though neither of them really treats her like she is helpless.

Personal History Alexis Rodgers was born October 31st 1992 on the stroke of midnight. She was tiny only 9 ozs, then again that was rather to be expected when she was born three months early. Five minutes before Alexis was born with quiet dignity, Nicolas Mikhail Rodgers came flailing into the world. Nico was more robust than his little sister, growing to become a well muscled 6 feet while Alexis grew into a petite yet curvy 5'2". Alexis jokes that the reason she's so tiny is that Nico sucked up all the growth hormones. Nico just laughs and says that Alexis took all the pretty.

When the twins were just four months old they discovered the truth about Alexis, she had suffered one of the birth defects that could come from being born prematurely. She was four months old and completely blind with no hope of regaining any vision in the future. Alexis has only ever known darkness, her world is about sound, scent, and touch. At an early age she would hum along with any music that was playing, something that drove her parents crazy and made her brother laugh. It was quickly apparent that Alexis had perfect pitch and a love for music that would not be denied.

The twins grew up in a rural area, never knowing the reason that their family was so isolated, they simply believed that they were simple horse breeders. The truth was a bit more sinister. Back in the 80's Alexis' father was a high ranking officer in the KGB. He had seen the writing on the walls and rather than stay in the failing Soviet Union and becoming a nobody he defected to America. To say that he made a nice little profit off of what the US government was willing to pay him for the secrets of his former station would have been an understatement of titanic proportions. He met his wife once he had relocated in rural southern Virginia. Stacy Anne Lawrence was a waitress at the local diner where Viktor Rodgers would have lunch and dinner nearly every day. After a few months the pair began to date and eventually married. Stacy was a perfect wife, quitting her job at the diner when her husband demanded it. Viktor was a jealous man and hated the idea of other men around his beautiful wife.

Stacy was the primary care giver to her children and somehow managed to raise two independent souls despite her husbands desire to see his daughter as subservient as his wife. A task that he thought would be simple due to Alexis' blindness but was in fact hampered by that very same hurdle. Alexis grew to be an independent young woman who's focus became her music. She joined every choir and singing group that she could while growing up. Her brother Nico encouraged his little sister, even going so far as setting up a local karaoke night every week at Alexis' favorite restaurant. Alexis would go to the event every week and often sang more than one song. One such night ended up with her brother bloodied and in the ER and Alexis meeting a charming deputy, Liam Graham Carter.

Liam and Alexis hit it off nearly instantly and quickly became fast friends though that changed when Alexis turned 18.
