|Personal History||Alice was born in central Los Angeles as the daughter to Jean-Philippe Dubois and Kate Green, having both the French and American nationalities from birth, her parents moved to France when she was one year old as both parents had found better jobs there. Her father had secured a senior level job with Thales while her mother worked as a consultant for US companies seeking to do business in France. This background provided Alice and her siblings with everything they could possibly desire. Despite both parents having busy jobs, they still made sure to always dedicate time to their children and at the very least being there before they went to bed at night. Despite this dedication, the children however would still be mostly raised by their nanny.
As soon as she started going to school, it quickly became clear that Alice had very much inherited her intelligence from her parents. She often excelled compared to her peers and very early on displayed curiosity and logical reasoning beyond that which was to be expected for someone her age. In her interactions with her fellow classmates however she would never show herself as particularly spoiled or denigrating to those that didn't perform quite as well. Instead where possible she tried to help others in improving themselves. This pattern held throughout her education and young life until a life-changing event happened at age 16. Her parents and brothers had gone to see a football game while Alice stayed home, not being much of a fan of the sport and to keep an eye on her younger sisters. Not expecting anyone to be home a group of armed thieves broke into the home. Responding quickly to the situation she hid Nathalie in a closet but before she could hide Chloe as well or call the police the robbers had already found her and forced themselves on both her and Chloe before finishing what they had come to do and steal most of the easily moved valuables, the torture had lasted for hours with both sisters unable to defend themselves. Later police investigations would find out that the robbers (members of an Albanian gang) had been watching the mansion for months, waiting for the perfect time to strike.
The trauma of the situation affected Alice's personality and educational performance. Only through the help of a psychologist was she able to overcome it after two years and learn to live again. Alice had always wanted to enter a career where she would help people but the initial response from the police officers that had come to the scene of the crime and the kindness of later investigators made her want to pursue criminology. As later therapy sessions would uncover, her curious nature had come into it as well with a desire to learn why the men who had imposed such trauma on her and her sister would act in such a cruel way. Unfortunately, France had very few programs of the sort so she first pursued the Security Studies Bachelors at Leiden University in The Netherlands followed by a Masters in Comparative Criminal Justice as that same university. Both degrees would be completed summa cum laude (a distinction indicating the performance was near-perfect). The day she graduated from her masters however brought very little joy. While Alice had eventually overcome the experience, Chloe had never been able to and devolved into a history of substance abuse. Mere hours after concluding her thesis defence, a call came from German police that they had found Chloe and that she had died of an opioid overdose.
The loss of her sister, and only other person in the world who knew what she had gone through, nearly broke Alice again if she did not have the support of her parents, other siblings and perhaps most importantly the boyfriend she had gained in her first year at Leiden. Mark Davis was an American who had also come to Leiden to study from the same program but dropped out after the first year and instead pursued a legal degree. The Brunswick native had spent months courting Alice before she finally agreed to a date and their relationship blossomed over the years. While after graduating Alice had essentially the ability to choose any position she could possibly want, she joined him back to his hometown and signed up for the Brunswick PD. After completing the required training from the State and with her US citizenship by birth, she joined the ranks of the PD as a patrol officer in 2015. In that same year she also married Mark who had joined a local firm. While many would consider being a Patrol Officer in such a small town to be well below her level, Alice enjoyed the relative peace and comfort. The people of Brunswick had welcomed them as one of their own and her colleagues had quickly become as close as family.
On the personal front by all indications they were a happily married couple, until in 2018 Alice came home early from a patrol to surprise Mark for his birthday only to find him in bed with her best friend and partner. Without saying a word, she walked out of the room, left her keys on the kitchen table and went to a rival firm to initiate divorce proceedings. While she had so far had little ambition to move out of patrol operations, she now needed to change something in her life other than her personal relationships and as such she applied for one of the open Investigator positions, citing both her academic qualifications and actual experience. To her joy she was accepted in early 2019 and promoted to Investigator.
