Alex was born within the Enchanted Forest, she was born originally within the limits of Amare however her mother took her and her brother, Richard, to a smaller village within Anglia's limits soon after her birth. Her birth father is unknown, she never met him and never really asked about him to begin with. From what Richard has told her, Alex is aware her father was George Walker who was killed just before she was born due to an attack on their village before she was born. Alex is the younger of the two siblings and she spent her childhood in the village on the outskirts of Anglia. She lived with her mum and brother with her Uncle popping in every so often. She would travel back to her birth town to visit her gran who still lived there. Her uncle travelled a lot and would always bring her things back from the places he visited. He was an explorer and a professor of such. He specialised in symbols and history, something which most of the men in the Colt family seemed to do.
When she was 13 her mother died whilst away with Uncle and their grandmother. Alex never found out what happened to her mother, but she suspects it had to do with their family's past and the games that everyone seemed to play these days. She went to live with her Uncle for most of her life between the ages of 13 and 16. After moving in their uncle the Colt children saw a lot more of the world. They went everywhere, from Amare and Anglia to Arendelle and Camelot and beyond. Their uncle's work took them everywhere, and it was during this time when Alex's witch powers seemed to come through. Alex learned that due to her family's heritage, there was always one witch in each generation, the only girl. Since the early records of their family this has been the case. There always seems to be a male, then a female born. Like the brother was there to protect the witch from whatever went bump in the night.
Due to her escalating interest and powers, at 15 Alex went to live for a few years with her gran, who had moved back to Anglia, where her gran now lived due to dark magic growing in Amare. She found out she was from a powerful witch line and the powers she had within her. She was a fast learner and her gran knew that with time the young girl's thirst for knowledge about the power was familiar, it reminded her of their ancestor, the original witch of her family, Clara Colt. Someone who Alex bore a striking resemblance to. When Alex was 16 she was told by her gran about the world to the level it is at, light magic and dark... evil and good. She found out that they, as witches, had a part to play, but it was up to Alex to choose her own place amongst it all. She chose to progress with the teachings of her heritage, of her craft and to be placed as part of nature.
Alex later found out that she was to receive a special gift on turning 16/17, she would receive the knowledge of her past lives. Every generation of Colt women got the memories of their previous life's to help them grow their magic and connection to nature and their heritage. This was a special gift, a spell, created by the first witch witch in their line, Clara, that only applied to Colt's. When she turned 17 her gran and the other witches of similar standing started a ritual in which Alex was granted with around 500 years of past memories, 7 life times in total. She found out she was the first witch of her line. She had lived the life of Clara Colt and many others who followed. In her previous life's she'd been all over the world to begin with, long ago. She even started to notice that she looked the same as her past lives, not exactly the same, but very similar.
At 18 Alex, thanks to her uncle's connections, went to the Indian Terrority to study their herbal medicines and remedies. She took this knowledge back to Anglia and started to help others together with her own magic and remedies. She made several friends and contacts within several circles and discovered that there were other subjects, other avenues for her to go down to help her with her craft, her past, she went for it and started her life in the world of royalty and war.
Whilst travelling between the kingdoms she met up with her brother and after showing him how far she'd come along with her powers since he left, happy that she was safe. The siblings were still close, they had kept in touch and regularly kept up to date with each other. Richard had become an explorer, a fighter too. Often he'd contact her for advice of the legends and such that she had access to as a good witch. due to the fact she lived in Anglia and Amare mostly, she knew a young farmer boy, David. When they were older, to her surprise she found he was set to marry Snow White.
Also before the curse Alex's gran called her back to Amare, where she now lived and told her about something coming, something bad. However before the younger witch could get answers from her gran, Bella Colt died in her sleep. Then the curse hit as Alex prepared to move once again.
During the first curse, Alex lived in town and kept to herself mostly. She was unaware of the existence of her brother. Alex owned a herbal store on the main street. When the curse was lifted, Alex kept her head down in regards to her magic, she was scared something would happen to her, so she helped when she could.
After returning to the Enchanted Forest, Alex stayed with the main group as best she could, reuniting with her old friend David, Prince Charming. She however also would go with gatherers to search for her brother who was still missing. During this time she got close to one of David's knights, one of his close friends, a knight named Michael. As Michael and Alex got close the second curse took over and they were sent right back to Storybrooke, she lost contact with him when they returned as their memories where gone.
Now that their memories are back, for a second time, she is most irritated that her memories were gone considering her past and her family history. This time however, she is more certain of her standing within the community and will be helping out as much as she can, both to help the people as well as helping her family reunite. And she also wants to reunite with her lost love.
Alex let out a sigh as she looked to the living room of the small home that had once belonged to her grandmother. It was full of boxes, mostly half full or empty. She was packing up some things that she was giving away or storing, and unpacking her own things. The witch had never thought she'd end up here again, in Storybrooke. She never thought that she would take over the family store and live in the house that had once housed her gran, her uncle, her mother and brother. Alas here she was... Alex shook her head as she placed the bottle of beer that she'd just got on the table next to the sofa and grabbed her gran's Grimoire. Mac was out with new friends so she could activity do some magical things. She frowned and put it into a small wooden box that sat on the coffee table. She looked around the dimly lit room and pouted as she wondered when it would ever been sorted. She missed her gran mother, she had no one now... well, she had MacKenzie she guessed. The young girl had gotten quite attached to her aunt and vis versa over the last few month, the moved to Storybrooke had only increased their bond as family.
After about two hours Alex yawned with a glance around the living room, it looked no different, she couldn't decide what to throw and what to keep out. With a groan she stood and took out a journal that her gran had written in. Alex found them the previous night and started to read them. Some were missing but she was enjoying reading about her gran's life and the mystery that was her grand-father. Alex had never met him, apparently he was the one and only love of Isabella's life. Alex's attention was brought to the door as her large husky bounded in. "Hey boy, walkies?" She smirked as the dog disappeared for a moment before returning with Alex's shoe. "Hint much?"
Alex walked with her dog as they got to the area she walked Harley every night she'd been in Storybrooke. There was something about this place that had a heavy feeling in the air. Alex looked over as Harley ran further than he usually did. "Harley! Harley! Come on boy!" She said and stood up from the tree trunk she'd stopped at. Usually her dog was extremely careful of not leaving Alex by herself, but obviously something had caught his attention. "Harley, come on boy, home time! Food!" Alex grumbled before walking off to find the dog. "Damn dog..." She muttered. As the woman made her way after her pooch, she paused, sensing... something. She narrowed her eyes as they became accustomed to the lack of light. Under her foot a twig snapped and her breath caught, it was like she expected someone, something to come out of the shadows. She glanced up and saw the waning moon loom over her head. Alex sighed, where was that dumb mutt? She knew that there were things out there she couldn't control, however she could pack a punch herself. Alex jumped as her dog came bounding out of the trees towards her, "Jezzzzzzz! You gave me a heart attack Harley." She told the dog and glanced up towards where the dog came from, she frowned seeing someone, "Who the hell are you?"
