– Cameron about Alyson
Alyson is the spitting image of Cleo, having the same dark reddish-brown hair with dark gray eyes, but a paler complexion. She was last seen wearing a black hooded cape over a cream-colored top and matching skirt with brown designs, which stopped at her knees but trailed further behind, combat boots and black leggings. Dragon's Heart was strapped to her waist by a black belt.
While her full personality isn't known, from what Cameron has told Cleo, she was headstrong, stubborn, and full of herself. Alyson, sadly, wasn't much of a mother or parent figure, she couldn't do it so Cameron ended up raising Cleo.
