Alison was a childhood friend of Iris Wildthyme.
As a child, Iris (then called Lilith) went to the base of the mountains with Alison and found a deserted fishing village. When Iris stood with Alison at the village's pier, she saw dozens of small sharp-toothed white fish and was startled. She fell into the water and quickly grabbed a beam and pulled herself out. While this was going on, Alison laughed at Lilith's misfortune. After this incident, Lilith never trusted Alison again. (PROSE: First Meetings)
