Alex was born with psychic abilities (has ESP.) She can acquire information from an object or from being near in close proximity to a space where something happened (like a "psychic detective" using "applied psi.")

ESP (Extra Sensory Perception) is the ability to acquire information without using the regular five senses of the body. "Perception" can mean anything from "seeing" or dreaming an event to just having a gut feeling or an unconscious affect on one's behavior.

Derek, in response to Alex’ accusation that he knew what she was facing in "The Tenement." "Maybe I did. And maybe I didn’t. The point is, you needed to be there. Having you stay was the right decision. Wasn’t it? Wasn’t it?"

"Don’t piss on my leg and tell me it’s raining, Moreau!" Kyle Vance to Alex in "The Tenement."

"Someday, Alex will have to cover your back. I need to know if the two of you will make it home." Derek speaking to Nick in "The Tenement."

To Derek, after he asks her if she can handle the case at the Pennywhistle Inn: "Trust me." (see "Twelfth Cave")

"Either that, or too much ale with attitude." Alex’s teasing reply to Nick’s comment that there is something in the house in "The Reckoning."

Joke about Nick, said sarcastically to Derek: "So how many Nick Boyles does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Just one- Nick holds the bulb and the world revolves around him." (see "Black Widow")

"Derek, I was drinking milk, not Scotch." Alex replied when Derek came up with a wild excuse for what happened to her when the then-unknown Scotish faeries attacked her. (see "Lights Out" II)

"More like garage sale rejects"- to Nick's quip about not buried treasure in the mysterious old box that was delivered to the SF Legacy House. (see "Lights Out" II)

"Everyone in my family has the gift (of Sight). Alex’s is just more potent." Said by her sister Tanya. (see "The Spirit Thief")

"My grandmother taught us that our family was magic, able to overcome all that stood in our way. I used to wonder what she meant. Now I know." Written in Alex’s journal. (see "The Spirit Thief")

"There’s an ancient proverb to be careful what we wish for, because we just might get it. Sometimes, as Jeffrey Starr discovered, seeing into the future and the past can be more a burden, than a blessing." Alex’s Legacy Journal entry in "Mind’s Eye."

"Your physician’s oath doesn’t apply here. This is war and it can’t be won without confronting evil. Evil doesn’t play by the rules." Alex, arguing with Rachel in "The Choice."

"I didn’t come here to be safe. I came here to make a difference and I think you did too," Alex, discussing with Rachel why she joined the Legacy in "The Choice."

Mega-thanks to Emmalee for giving me her massive list of data that was the beginnings of the character and archive pages and for the Season Two quotes.
