Lexi is a charismatic girl, she knows how to capture people’s attention. She can be quite flexible in some aspects, always trying to adapt to situations when talking to others. She considers herself to be a reliable and altruistic person, always willing to help others, especially those she considers to be friends, sometimes even going out of her way to do so and ensuring that they are happy. Despite her health issues she’s not very active, usually only engages in physical activities that she enjoys, like martial arts, and LARP (if considered a physical activity), but might do other activities, if it makes her friends happy. She’s rarely struck by thoughts of self-doubt trusting her abilities, perhaps more than she should. She often relies on her intuition, instead of facts, but understands that they are important. She’s not the smartest student, but she isn’t the dumbest, she stays above average and doesn’t try to go out of her way to be the best, she enjoys spending time with her friends and doing what she loves.
She’s not bravest, nor she is a coward, she adapts to the situation, however there are times where things get out of hand. She flirts too much for her own good, might go too far on certain situations, leading people on, sometimes unconsciously, sometimes consciously, and that behaviour doesn’t paint her too well at the eyes of some other students, but she always tries to see the best in others, even if they can’t see the best in her. Despite her choice of sport, Lexi isn’t the most competitive person, she tries to give her best. Losing isn’t something that upsets her much, she’s a good sport and would rather have a good time, and is rather modest about her accomplishments, preferring to boost other people’s accomplishments over her own.
Lexi is slightly impatient, she can’t wait too long for certain things. She has a slight dislike for highly structured environments and isn’t amused when she has to follow rules without understanding them, even when training martial arts. She’s very argumentative, and she will try to find something to argue about, while most of the arguments are for the fun of exchanging ideas, it can be misunderstood as a need to start fights.
Overall, Lexi is gentle and sweet towards those she loves, being a kind and caring friend. It’s not easy to upset her, there are some things that might upset her faster than others, but generally she’s a very relaxed person, not being considered dominant nor passive, it simply depends on the situation. When upset she’s not a friendly person and can be quite rude, throwing sarcastic comments at people and in general being quite passive-aggressive.
Lexi stands 160cm, making her the smallest member of the Stewart’s family, which she doesn’t mind as she can easily go unnoticed whenever there’s any big events and she can avoid her strict family, especially by hiding in small spaces. She has medium length brown hair, falling past her jaw line, touching her shoulders lightly. She often wears a headband to prevent her hair from falling into her eyes. Whenever she’s practicing, she tried to tie it in a ponytail. Her hair is straight, and unlike her sister’s, her hair is darker but whenever it’s too long it starts to curl.
She constantly wears a smile on her face. Lexi is in need of glasses, though she constantly wears contact lenses, there is the occasional day that she will show up with them. Without some form of visual aid Lexi will spend most of her time bumping into things.
Lexi was born in Narragyambie to an Australian father and a Japanese mother. She’s their youngest child, making her Chloe Stewart’s younger sister. Her father owns a bakery and her mother owns a martial arts dojo. Lexi was born roughly a year after Chloe, however, unlike her sister she was born with a health condition, which made her weaker than most children, this condition forced Lexi to live a good portion of her childhood indoors without being able to play with other kids, relying only on Chloe’s company. The time she spent indoors with Chloe strengthened their sisterly bond.
At the age of eight Lexi began displaying a natural aptitude for Magic, it was also around the same time she started to become strong enough to play with other children. Lexi always looked up to her sister, and what she wanted to do was to practice martial arts with Chloe, despite everyone telling her that her body wouldn’t take it, she proved her almost every day that she was as capable of doing as her sister. While Lexi didn’t practice as many martial arts as her sister, she focused only on Karate.
Lexi took the opportunity to be able to play with others to make new friends, becoming a sociable and a charismatic person. While sociable, Lexi still enjoys her indoor time, playing video games or table top games, and as she grew older, she never quite abandoned those hobbies, becoming a big part of her life.
When she was old enough, she enrolled in Tallygarunga, and while she had the opportunity to stay home, she prefers to stay at the dorms. It’s her one and only opportunity to avoid her strict family, the only time she has not to be under the all seeing eyes of her mother, who, is a helicopter parent, which makes Lexi crave for some freedom. After a year of being in Tally, and now slightly freer, and less controlled than she used to be, Lexi found a group of people who share the same love as her for video games and table top games, creating a LARP group that meets every week at the park.
Currently Lexi finds herself in her fifth year at Tally, while not the best student in the classes she’s taking, she only trying to achieve an average grade, not trying to aim for more. It shouldn’t be about the competition, it should be about what people learn, the friends and more importantly to enjoy her time there. She hopes to start to experience more freedom over the years, while she has a feeling it won’t happen until she graduates and moved away to attend VMU.
