When Alexis guarded the trail to Thebes, she challenged anyone who approached with a riddle and if they got the answer wrong, she would kill and sometimes even eat them, by unhinging her jaw, eyes black. She was only ever defeated once, when Oedipus guessed the correct answer to one of her riddles, and after that she returned to Olympus.
She is a favourite of Juno.
Pegasus and the New OlympiansEdit
A few days later, Alexis is tasked to join Emily, Joel Pegasus and Paelen as they travel to Earth to see if a racehorse named Tornado Warning is a clone of Pegasus created by the CRU as she is powers which could help. Pluto gives Alexis his helm of darkness to borrow whilst on Earth.
Alexis is a Sphinx. She has a lion's body, eagle's wings and serpent's tail, with the head and upper body of a young woman that has green eyes and raven hair.
She also has two sets out teeth; her talking teeth and her eating teeth.
Alexis is single-minded and stubborn, but she can also be caring and protective. Sometimes she is mischievous too, and often teased Emily about being jealous of her but wasn't too mean to hurt Emily's feelings. Although when it got down to it Alexis is not a being to get on the wrong side of.
