Allison has an athletic, slightly muscled body due to the intensive training schedule she takes with Atharron.
Allison becomes a very strong psychic with various abilities such as telekinesis, telepathy, limited precognition, and remote vision. She is also stronger and more agile than an regular woman of her build.
Allison prefers to wear skirts and dresses rather than trousers. She dislikes too much jewellery, preferring her locket, and small earrings.
Allison is proficient in HEMA and hand to hand combat. She also incorporates her psychic abilities into her fighting style.
Allison was born in a small village in Devon, England. While in the last years of primary school, a fire burnt the second storey of their house, and the family needed to move. It was at school that Allison befriended Kate, and they spent much of their free time with each other.
Unknown to Allison, her dormant psychic abilities began to surface during childhood. Small things at first that she never noticed, but Daniel noted down every strange occurrence.
It was around this time that Allison showed a keen interest in music. While Emma was initially against her learning the guitar, Allison's mother relented after an argument with Daniel. Allison quickly became proficient with the instrument, as well as piano, though that was not her preferred choice. Soon, the songwriting bug hit her, and she jotted down her ideas which quickly became fully composed songs.
Sometime during Year 8, Mathew took a special interest in tormenting Allison to the point she was afraid to even stay in the same room as him. Kate stood by her throughout these years, and without Kate, Allison was certain she could not have survived secondary school.
Early in her GCSE years, Allison and Kate began a more romantic relationship, but one Allison was keen to keep a secret from Emma. And they succeeded for a time, but Allison did tell Lizzie who agreed not to say anything.
It is during Allison's final year at Secondary school that her story begins in Allison's Defeat.
Allison attended secondary school, but was unable to go to college due to Emma's discipline.
Her grades suffered during her GCSE year. Though she still achieved an A in music, she never received above a C in her other subjects.
Allison never really had a job while at school, though she did earn some small cash babysitting. When she was finally freed from Emma, Allison worked in retail for a while along with a modest part time income playing in pubs and clubs. Eventually she, and Lotus Vale, were able to earn a living solely off their music.
Allison's greatest accomplishment was undoubtedly her defeat of the Emissary in 2025. However, she is also known for a number of other achievements.
As lead singer and founding member of Lotus Vale, Allison received a number of awards for her musical talents. Not least a posthumous lifetime achievement award presented to daughter Dawn, and sole surviving member of Lotus Vale, Chad.
Allison's childhood was marred by abuse from Mathew. He would taunt her to the point she was afraid to be in his presence.
In addition, after her father's death, Emma also inflicted her own form of abuse on Allison. An extreme form of neglect that ultimately resulted in Allison's death.
Fortunately, due to unknown circumstances, Allison was resurrected and soon used the pain to focus her growing psychic abilities.
Allison initially does not believe in any form of a higher power. Her scepticism is still a defining trait of hers, despite being presented with evidence of various wonders.
One of Allison's main motivations is that of Kate. She would do anything for her, and she will not stand by if anyone threatens her.
While she is not initially accepting of her position as God's general, and her main drive is to distance herself from that, she eventually accepts her destiny, and her defeat of Mathew comes as not just justice for Kate, but the right thing to do.
If Allison loves someone, she will do anything to protect them.
Allison can be rash and impulsive, particularly when someone threatens Kate.

Allison and Kate were friends since primary school and grew closer over the years to the point where they became lovers in the summer of 2002 AD. After finding out about Allison's brief encounter with Linda, Kate is upset, but remains by Allison's side as she recovers from her gunshot wounds.
When Allison is forcably removed from Kate by Emma, they are separated for many years, until they are finally reunited in 2006 AD. They get married, and have children Anna and Dawn. Kate is kidnapped by the Emissary and in her final duel with him, Allison rescues Kate.
Allison and Kate both die together after the power of the Emissary destroys them both.
Commonalities & Shared Interests
Allison and Kate both share a similar interest in movies and television. However, Allison leans more towards music than does Kate.
Atharron is assigned to train Allison by Cat. The two began with a respect of each other, however, Atharron's methods, and Allison's reluctance strained their relationship.
While Atharron tries to hammer home hard truths, Allison cannot go beyond his harsh delivery. This comes to a head when Anna is revealed to be in league with the Emissary, and Allison refuses to believe Atharron when he tells her not to trust her own daughter.
Cat is charged with the guardianship of Allison. They first meet when Cat protects Allison from Mathew. Allison immediately strikes up a friendship, however, this is tested very soon when Cat reveals herself to be an angel.
In order to repair their friendship, and more importantly, to show Allison that Cat is telling the truth, Cat takes Allison to Eden and gives her the knowledge of Afirian.
While their relationship is never steady, neither party is outright hostile to the other.
While Daniel loved both his daughters, he had more of a connection with Allison than Lizzie. This is due in part to his rescue of her when she was still an infant, and also his subsequent discovery that she is more than human. He felt a need to protect her and guide her beyond just being her father.
His relationship with Emma deteriorated to the point that he considered leaving, but he stayed on account of Allison.
Allison looked up to her father, and though she never trusted him enough to come out to him about her and Kate, she was happy when he found out.
At the time of her death, Allison's wealth is unknown, but likely considerable. However, she does own a small mansion in Devon, and a holiday home in Spain, while driving one of her two Porsche's. In addition, her daughter Dawn was privately schooled in one of the best in the country.
