Alice Finch was born in Bristol, United Kingdom to two loving parents. Her father was somewhat of an adventurer. He loved to travel and often took Alice and her mother Jane along with them. He died when Alice was only 12 years old from a tragic bungee jumping accident. The cable snapped and he fell to his death. In an effort to ensure his family was well taken care of, he invested in a moderate life insurance policy. Alice’s mother used this money to send Alice to college in America and start her own fashion design business.
Her mother is somewhat eccentric. After the death of Alice’s father, her mother threw herself into her work. Fashion became her life, her way of coping with the loss of the love of her life. She never remarried after that. She said she never had the time with her work, but Alice knew the real reason her mother never married.
After her father died, Alice first took an interest in computer gaming. The advances in technology made creating and entering a new world easier than ever before. She loved to play MMORPG games to escape her feelings. She started with Asheron’s Call, then moved on to Dark Age of Camelot, then World of Warcraft, then Warhammer Online. From there she moved on to tabletop gaming, specifically Magic the Gathering. She isn’t the best at the game, but she loves it nonetheless.
Alice is highly intelligent. She had the opportunities to graduate school at an early age, but chose not to in order to stay with her friends. She loves puzzles and challenging herself mentally. Because of her high intellect, she is bored very easily and must maintain constant stimulation. As a result, she can be a bit impulsive and curious. She is a bit of a linguist and does not hesitate to correct grammar, spelling, or syntax. Alice is a great swimmer and an avid SCUBA diver.
Alice loves to cosplay. Her first costume was modeled after Jill Valentine from the Resident Evil series, but she eventually moved on to more complex projects. It is great for keeping her constantly stimulated, the same way a puzzle would be. Her mother provided her with all of the sewing tools and skills she needed to create whatever she wanted
Currently, she is in her final year of studying Oceanography at the University of California – San Diego. Alice loves the ocean. As a child, her parents would take her to Whitmore Bay and play in the sand with her. What she loves most about the ocean is that it is such a mystery. She does not easily let go of anything she does not understand, often times being kept awake until she could figure out a solution.
At the moment she is working a temp job as a legal secretary. She hates the job, but it helps to give her some extra money in addition to the stipend she is allowed by her mother. She lives modestly in a small one bedroom apartment off campus. Alice decided to take a semester off to explore the west coast, a road trip ultimately ending at NorWesCon. She came with her best mate, Rose, and her boyfriend Maxxie. It is her first time going to a Con, but she anticipates a great time.
