Character Name: Alexis Laurel Sparrow

Gender: Female

Job/Role: Lawyer

Age: 33

General Appearance: Her natural hair color is black and now that she is showing signs of grey, she regularly goes in for a coloring at her favorite salon. Presently she is sporting a dark brown shoulder length bob haircut with “warm autumn highlights” that makes her blue eyes pop. Alexis puts a lot in to her appearance; with fancy scrubs and creams for her skin and a rigid diet plan to keep herself thin and trim. Tall at 5’8″ (and even taller in her designer heels). Her makeup leans towards the “natural” look, save for a heavy use of eyeliner and mascara. Wears nothing but expensive designer fashion. She’s always neat, tidy, and polished. Favors clothes in neutral colors; white, black & grey especially. When she does do pops of color, it’ll be shades of red or copper. Doesn’t wear a lot of accessories and her shoes will always match her purse.

Current Goal/Purpose: Rise in her career.

General Personality: Alexis has always been tightly wound. She’s the oldest of give girls, putting her in the position of responsible older sibling (and as the others would say “Boss of the Universe”). As a child she was always serious and trying to keep control over things, and only continued as she got older. When she does things, she goes all in. It WILL get done and it WILL be perfect. She is absolutely a perfectionist and control freak. If something doesn’t go her way she’ll put up a front of being unflappable, but it’ll be driving her insane on the inside. To make matters worse she is actually quite good at what she does. She’s vain and almost a little cocky, but has too cool of an exterior to let it show. Alexis has a very hard time letting loose and relaxing, but her colleagues from law school have one of two unbelievable stories about her getting wild drunk after successful exams. She can’t stand people getting in to her personal bubble.

General History: As the eldest sister of five, Alexis has always had to be the grownup. At least, that is how she feels. She bossed all of her sisters around like a war General. She wasn’t the one playing imaginative games, making creative art, or running screaming through the house. She was a very serious child, with very serious interests, and was constantly lecturing her sisters about their terrible behaviors when she didn’t have her nose in her books.

She excelled in school and graduated with honors. Going in to law school and following in the family trade was the natural way to go and her dream since she was a child.

Alexis met Clark in college. Their relationship was very planned and practical. They both shared the same interests (going to law school, getting the big house and expensive cars, raising a family, etc) and their personalities and habits suited each other well. They moved in together and later married. For awhile everything was perfect. When Alexis found out she may not be able to have children things started going downhill. Clark wanted to look in to options, Alexis started getting distant and focusing on nothing but work. Everything turned in to a fight. They divorced after two years of marriage. Clark is now married again with a new wife and a family. Alexis never talks about it.

These days Alexis is wanting more out of her career. Her parents didn’t want to expand their and Alexis wanted to work on more challenging cases. She’s put out her resume to look for a new firm.
