a character in “Don't Rest Your Head”, as played by GreenEyedSue




Name: Alice Horson

Age: 18

What's been keeping me awake?

Alice has been living with her mother who is a successful lawyer, but because of her success and work didn't have time for her daughter much. Alice's father disappeared two years ago when Alice was 16. Alice's father had trouble sleeping that afterwards turn him into an insomniac. After that things became bad with his relationships with Alice's mother, in his work, social life, etc. He started walking at nights, began drinking and losing his job. What made worse, Alice always had one nightmare that repeat itself when the bad things started. She saw her father surrounded by horrible creatures, shouting for Alice and than being devoured by the creatures. That nightmare became more frequently and vivid when her father disappeared. That nightmare made her scare to go to sleep which eventually made her to not sleep at all.

What just happened to you?

When Alice returned from school walking back home she suddenly saw a glimpse of a man running into an ally. Alice would have look the other way if not for the fact the man looks almost like her father. Alice shouted at him but he kept running and Alice followed after him just in time seeing him enter a door which she knew that there was no door before in this dead end ally. He disappeared inside and Alice walked through that door too.

What's on the surface?


Alice is a straight A student. She is very creative in telling stories and drawing and she is very imaginative. Alice has always been daydreaming about other worlds she invented ever since she was 6 years old. She is a good student, polite and well-mannered which teachers loved her but she is not very social person. She tried speaking with her classmates about her stories and what she comes up with but they just laughed at her. She is not very popular girl. Alice's mother was very successful lawyer which made her and Alice be very wealthy family. However, she was always busy and did not have time for her daughter. Alice's Nanny, Dolores, was more a mother to her than her mom. Alice is thin, a little pale skin and short body.

What lies beneath?


Even before Alice became an Awake, she been dreaming on a strange world that exist in our world but invisible to normal people. A place, a lost space where all missing socks and broken toys come to live a second life. Were there is a thirteenth hour on the clock. She did not visit there but she always daydream she visited there when she was alone. Meeting strange people and creatures that loved her and did not let her be alone. When her father had his troubles and than disappeared, Alice's daydreams became more vivid, suddenly she could see the creatures she imagined are real and so are the monsters. When her father disappeared Alice somehow knew that he went into that world and now she must find him.

What's your path?

Alice's purpose is first to find her father and tries to save him from whatever danger he is in. Alice long term goal is that she will never be alone again, helping her parents get back together is a good way, but what more is she is curious about this strange and new world. She wants to discover more about it, Why she feels connected to this world somehow? And what is this world exactly she can change to her advantage? This are the questions she is looking for answers.

[ Talents:

-Exhaustion talent: Alice has always had an excellent visual memory and a photographic memory. Now it is far more better that she can remember every little thing she sees or read and can notice every small detail on a person, object or area she investigate.

-Madness talent: Daydreaming - Alice can now when she daydream with her eyes open or close about anything or something it will appear in her hand or will happen. Depending on how much of her power she uses, it mostly are small things but if she uses it to the max can be bigger and extraordinary things.
