Alison Edgley is the daughter of Melissa and Desmond Edgley, and the sister of Valkyrie Cain. She is mostly called "Alice" in abbreviation.


Death Bringer

Alison first appeared in the series at her naming ceremony. She cried when Beryl Edgley moved towards her to take her from her older sister, as she said Valkyrie was holding her wrong, much to Beryl's annoyance.

Alison was later babysitted by both Valkyrie and Fletcher Renn. She was woken by all the noise and began crying when Ian Moore attacked Valkyrie.

Valkyrie was dubious as to whether she would introduce Alison into the world of magic.

Kingdom Of The Wicked

Valkyrie spoke and played with Alison a number of times during the Summer of Light. She also put Alice in the care of her reflection.

Last Stand Of Dead Men

Valkyrie still couldn't decide about revealing her secret identity to her family. After her Reflection forced her to flee her house, Alison was left in the care of it. Alison accidentally touched the Sceptre of the Ancients which panics the Reflection for a moment until it realises that she was also descended from The Ancients and immune from the power of Black Crystals.


Alice has blue eyes.[1] Thus, she was the only one of the four Edgley-children who doesn't have brown eyes.


  • In Last Stand of Dead Men it was stated that she was eighteen months old. However, she was born in February 2011 and Last Stand of Dead Men is set in August/October 2013 which implies she should have been 30 months old. Armageddon Outta Here has established a slightly different timescale to the series, which may rectify this problem.
  • The Sceptre of the Ancients was able to bind to Alice, meaning she must be magical.[2]
  • Derek Landy promised that whatever the gender of his niece would be, Valkyrie's new little brother or sister would be the same. His niece is a female and her name is Clara.[3]
