Alex Abernathy
Alex has been best friends with Florence for a significant chunk of their lives, but their friendship has always been strained for one reason or another. Despite Florence's engagement to Fred, Alex has always harboured a secret crush, one that she has shared with no one but Jemima.

Despite Florence's irresponsible coping mechanisms following Fred's accident, Alex stuck by her side, through the anger and the alchol, the drugs and the tantrums. Eventually, though, it proved too much and, following advice from William Shakespeare, Alex left Florence for good.

It wasn't that simple, however, and Alex found herself unable to stay away. Thankfully, Florence managed to pull herself together and, with help from Alex, came to terms with her grief and began a new, sober life.

Constantly entangling herself in other people's drama, Alex soon found a new focus when she learned of Jemima's impending deportation. Filled with determination, Alex set out to find a husband for Jemima in order to secure her a British citizenship. Eventually, she managed this, Jemima tying the knot with Robert.

Alex finally moved past her feelings for Florence when she developed a new relationship with the mysterious Billy. The friendship, however, was more strained than ever as Florence refused to accept the sinister Billy, convinced that there was something unsavoury about him.

Unfortunately for Alex, Florence was right, and Alex soon met her fate at Billy's hands.
