  3. Never one without the other, it's a package deal type of thing.
  4. Alex and Alex, Alexing it up out there yo.
  5. One of two people she'd watch the world burn over. She seems unaware of his affections due to being dense as a cement wall or hilariously stupid, or both. As of recently, they've added some 'benefits' to their already close friendship.
  6. If he needs something done, he knows who to call.
  7. One of the Collins twins' victims.
  8. A fearsome duo in the realm of wizardry political satire, from the pens of two Squibs.
  9. Friends for forever now, but she seems unaware he's been having one or ten crushes on her over the years.

    Alex Melody and Jamie Devin were born in Melbourne, Australia. They had a pureblood wizard mother whom dropped everything to be together with their Muggle father, a cartoonist residing in that city. Alex is a squib, and Jamie is a wizard. There isn't much to speak of regarding their early childhood - the only thing of note is that she was enrolled in gymnastics as means of dealing with her energy, as it was the closest physical activity to their home. Wanting to make her father proud, she gave it her best and proved to excel in it - she was even considered for actual competition by her trainers. It all came to an end, however, when the twins were 8 years old. Their father left without a trace, and a severe economic burden followed. While Jamie managed to escape that hell due to his magical abilities by enrolling in Tallygarunga, Alex was forced to live through it with her mother. They had to pull out of gymnastics because it was too expensive, and she soon had nothing more than her father's pencils to spend her time with. She didn't take this well at all. In fact, it spawned numerous anger and behavior issues which her mother was having a very hard time quelling. They only got worse when she was ripped from her hometown and brought to Narrie, the saving grace being that, over time, she gradually opened up to the cousin that she met there. Somehow, this cousin got through to her. Somehow, Alex found that she could trust someone again. Over the years this gave her enough of a solid foundation to calm down, mellow out and start over. For once in her life she was content, wanting to do things for herself and her family rather than out of spite for someone whom wasn't even there. Her art became impeccable, and she focused some time on a drum kit her uncle had purchased for her. For once, she actually had skills that could serve her well. Eventually, as Jamie went to play for the local Melbourne Quidditch team, she moved out of Narrie alongside him to pursue her art studies. Just about to graduate, she is hoping she manages to break out sometime soon - whether it be in drums, or in cartoons.

Secrets
  • For as much as she hates her father, she really wants him back;
  • She resents her brother's powers, erroneously seeing herself as someone who has to work twice as hard to get anything she wants and lacking talent in comparison;
  • She credits her cousin for saving her life, as she was harboring highly destructive thoughts when they met;
  • She's very afraid of needles;
  • Shane Robbins started teaching her guitar and bass when she moved back into Melbourne for college. She's grown very competent in both disciplines over the years, but still vastly prefers drums;
  • Is starting to be convinced she's aromantic, when that's not the case;
  • Is heavily considering opening some sort of online video channel for cartooning tips and metal covers of music she likes;
  • Very, very sensitive neck;
  • Her father taught her how to ice skate, but she only does it alone now;
  • Good vocals that she doesn't give herself enough credit for;
  • She first got into art professionally to prove she was better than her father, but in truth she just wants him to notice her;
  • A second reason of getting into art professionally over music is that she doesn't want the touring lifestyle and wants to stay close to her mother.
General Knowledge
  • While her name is Alexa, she vastly prefers 'Alex', and will be visibly irritated if you refer to her as anything but that (only her cousin may do this without dying);
  • Her original surname was 'Collins', but her hatred for her departing father blinded her to such an extent she legally changed it to 'Lin' once she was 18 - it's her mother's maiden name;
  • Hates being helped, no matter the task;
  • Detests being interrupted in any way while working;
  • Can't cook;
  • Detests tickles;
  • Academics just aren't her thing, as well as working under anyone, having far more success in self-planned and motivated projects than anything else;
  • Hates sappy romantic media of any kind;
  • Powerful stage presence;
  • Plays Street Fighter competitively, and her main character is Guile;
  • Former competition-level gymnast, but has kept up with her fitness and flexibility ever since;
  • Any mention of her father equals a punch in the face;
  • Is a bit of a jokester around people she does trust;
  • Living with her twin brother in Melbourne, but goes to Narrie when able;
  • Despite learning jazz drumming at first and excelling in it, she definitely took on a more metal pathway once entering college;
  • Unlike her brother, she isn't closeted at all.
Personality

Despite having mellowed out over the years and being considerably calmer, Alex is known for having bursts of rebellion when the mood strikes her. Alcohol occasionally goes hand in hand with this.

She has very deep trust issues based on her father disappearing - as a result, she's grown skeptical of new people she encounters, and skin deep friends take a much longer while to get to the meat and potatoes of a friendship with her than they do with her twin brother. Even then, she can't say she trusts any given person fully outside of her immediate family.

She's particularly inept at dealing with her emotions, which she always bottles up - they always end up blowing up in spectacular fashion. Once realizing this occurs or is about to occur, she opts to take long walks to calm herself down and only returns home when she can breathe easy.

Alex is very much a workaholic, working three different jobs at once while finishing her degree - professional drumming per commission, taking care of children, and actually trying to get a foot into the art world early on. She deliberately avoids being associated with the fame of her father in her art, not wanting to be in his shadow.

To the people that manage to get through that thick skin, she's the most loyal of individuals, deathly afraid of breaking any more bonds. She bends herself backwards to make sure the people she likes are okay, and even if she's not the best person to give advice, she always offers a listening ear.

Appearance

Alex is 172 cm tall, and very flexible overall. She keeps herself fit through a strict gymnastics regimen, mixed in with CrossFit. Like her brother, she sports dark brown hair and blue eyes. While she used to wear her hair short, she's let it grow during college.

She doesn't like dressing up much, keeping mostly to casual styles of wear - hoodies, beanies, jeans, etc. While she can definitely dress well on occasion, she doesn't seem to care much half the time.
