Lady-in-making: Social Etiquette


Alex is a petite 11-year-old girl with bobbed saddle brown hair and saddle brown eyes. Just like almost all the other characters, Alex does not consistently wear the same outfit. Most of her outfits are considered plain or simple as she comes from a poor family background.

Alex full appearance

Alex's full appearance.

Before revealing herself as a girl, Alex appeared to be an unclean 'boy'. She had messy hair with a fringe covering her left eye and a blotch of dirt on her right cheek while her clothes were often dirty and untidy.

Described by Candy JEM, Alex is considered cute.


Alex is a kind, forgivable and gentle person, this trait of hers was shown when she tends to forgive people despite the gravity of their harm towards her.

Coming from a poor background, Alex strives hard to earn money to meet up with her family's financial problems, this indicates that she is a hardworking and determined individual.


Mental Intellect

Alex displayed mental intellect when she made it from the 11th to the 20th position in class during book 10.[7]


During book 21, Alex mentioned that she helped her mother to mend broken clothes by sewing[8] and she taught some of her classmates how to sew.[9]

Character Interview

In the official 2018 fanbook, Alex was interviewed on several questions:

  • Alex's answer: Anthony! Joni, Mia, and Emilia have been a big help too!

3. Question: Do you still keep in touch with Garry?

4. Question: Andrew seems to dislike you. What are your thought on this?

  • Alex's answer: It troubles me. I guess it's because my clumsiness causes Anthony to get hurt. But I can't argue with that...

5. Question: What food do you prepare for Anthony?

  • Alex's answer: I'm not a good cook, so I prepare simple meals like omurice or fried egg with rice...

6. Question: Have you tried drinking milk to grow taller?

  • Alex's answer: Yes, but I drank too much once and had diarrhoea as a result. Since then, I've stayed away from it.

7. Question: If you had a time machine, would you go back to the past or to the future?
