Alexandria descends from a long line of very powerful witches on both sides of her bloodline. She is the daughter of Taven Cromwell, a powerful wizard, and Illyana Rasputin, the original Magik. Being apart of the Cromwell/Rasputin line of heritage she is marked for greatness in the magical realms of the universe. She also goes to a lavish, exclusive school for witches.
She struggles with carrying the family name at times, but never regrets her heritage. She has learned to control numerous types of magic including forbidden magics, that were sealed away ages ago.
Her reputation as an air-headed, trouble maker causes mentors and teachers to shudder with fear. However once Alex puts her mind to something, she can do what others find to be the "impossible".
Alexandria is the greatest magic user in the Cromwell line, stemming from her mix of magical parentage. Her magic is the strongest in the history of witches, and she frequently studies under the greatest philosophers in history. Alexandria believes that philosophy helps unleash new lengths of magic, unheard of by even the most powerful witches. Alexandria also studies under the greatest magic users in history, including Agatha Harkness, Doctor Strange, and her mother, Magik.
She spends most of her day using her magic for her own personal gain, and to mess with those that mess with her.
Though endowed with amazing magical abilities Alexandria studies various types of martial arts.
Alexandria often fights mystical creatures like zombies, vampires, warlocks, demons, mummies, and other witches.
Through extensive training she has learned to use charms, and enchantments to increase the strength of her powers and spells.
Alex seemed to have lost most of her magic, at the time of her mother's death do to emotional trauma. It took her time to build her magic once again, but she lived up to her name and stayed focused. Alexandria has devoted her life to finding a cure for the Legacy Virus, which took her mother away from her.
Powers & Abilities
Sorcery: The ability to tap this universe's infinite store of ambient magical energy and manipulate these to a variety of effects.

The latter means of power is usually gained by the recitation of incantations.
Some of these effects include forming magical energy bolts with a high degree of potency and control. Erect energy shields or screens with a high degree of imperviousness to both physical and magical damage, create illusions, teleportation across the face of the Earth or into a mystical dimension, thought-casting over short or vast distances in a manner virtually identical with telepathy, levitation and astral projection.

The Protected are a group of people who are protected by the god, Tricerberus from the time of their birth. When someone goes to Tricerberus for a favor or wish they make a pact with the evil god. The pact states that when they have their first child, they will give it up to him. Those babies are then put under a spell, that protects them from magic of all kinds, even some of the strongest magic. The children under the spell, are to serve Tricerberus to the time of his death.
