Abilities Alexa is a drakaina, though she detests the frankly unimaginative name. She hails from Greece, many centuries ago, and is distantly related to Echidna, Python and the like. She did have another name, but tends to switch it up every few decades. She has the ability to withstand huge amounts of heat, as well as being fairly difficult to kill. The whole armoured skin, tooth and claw thing plays a part in this.
She has two separate forms, though has the ability to shift just part of her body in dire situations. When she looks like a regular human, the only thing that sets her apart is the sometimes moving 'tattoo' on her arm, and her slightly slitted pupils. Her true form, as it were, consists of a thick, seven metre long tail that extends from her waist in various shades of green, dark yellow and brown. This appendage is extremely strong and difficult to hurt due to the armoured scales. The rest of her appearance takes on reptilian features - forked tongue, needle-like claws, fangs, the whole lot. Alexa is also able to spit acidic venom from her fangs in this form, though not in the other.
The cold weakens her, so during the darkest hours of the night, she's rarely as active as during the day. It depends on whether she's charged herself up enough; she's cold-blooded, so spends a lot of the day lazing in the sun to make sure she's not stranded in the night. She finds it difficult to talk clearly in her serpent form, and while her sense of smell is heightened, her eyesight reduces drastically. It's a shame that she hasn't bothered to pick up glasses. She has a natural aversion to water, as she cannot swim very well, though not for lack of trying.
