* Has three daughters with two different fathers.
Current: High powered attorney
Past: District Attorney
Past: Butler for the Quartermaine family (as "Dobson")
Alexis came to Port Charles to defend one character against stalking charges levied by another. The cheating and scheming that takes place among those linked to General Hospital has kept her quite busy throughout the years.
She's had romantic liaisons with Ned Ashton and Jasper Jacks, and her stormy marriage with Ric Lansing is all but done. She probably found her most romantic moment with steamy, Sonny Corinthos, and when she finally relented to having sex with him, it resulted in the birth of daughter, Kristina. With her child's welfare in mind, Alexis halted any contact with him and the mob connections that have already cost the lives of so many but eventually softened and let him have visitation with his daughter.
As part of the Cassidine clan, Alexis is plagued by her hatred for Helena for killing her mother right in front of her. Even after joining up with Luke Spencer to rid the world of the evil woman, Helena still turns up periodically to remind us that she is invincible.
It seems that every act that involves Alexis has a consequence. If she wins a case, she loses a lover. She can't find peace no matter how hard she tries. She recently learned that Sam McCall is the daughter she gave up years ago, and then discovered her in a compromising position with husband, Ric. Alexis had the fight of her life when she faced cancer, but came out on top. She continues to fight the bad guys of Port Charles by day, but ends up befriending them in her off hours.
When Sonny's son Michael was shot (and put in a coma) in 2008, she fought to keep Kristina, her daughter with Sonny, away from him. She and her BFF, fellow attorney Diane Miller, are often each other's sounding board and drinking partner.
Against her better judgment, she gave in to a love affair with Jerry Jacks. As District Attorney, she knew better than to align herself with a known criminal, but as a woman she was lonely.
Alexis was exposed as having an affair with the married Mayor Floyd. His wife Andrea tried to set Alexis up for killing his mistress and stalking the mayor. During this time Alexis also confessed to running Claudia off the road, which caused the death of her baby. Alexis was actually covering for her daughter Kristina and was cleared of all crimes.
Molly and Kristina became focused on setting their mother up with Mac and they went on a few friendly dates. Alexis also started working in the private sector, teaming up with Diane Miller at her firm.
Things turned serious again after Alexis found a beaten Kristina in their home. She rushed her daughter to the hospital and unknowingly hit Kristina's abuser, Kiefer Bauer, with her car and killed him. She got off with community service.
The ensuing months were spent trying to keep Kristina on track for high school graduation and away from older man Ethan Lovett. She was also a sounding board for Sam, who wanted to have a baby. When Kristina didn't get into Yale, Alexis went to Sonny to pull some strings in order to keep their daughter away from Ethan. It worked, but in order to keep their alliance quiet, Sonny forced her to represent him again.

At Miscavige, Julian and Alexis find Luke confided in a straight jacket in his cell. Alexis works to free Luke from his straight jacket and asks about his visit from Helena. Luke says she let him live because he convinced her that he was still useful to her and the maniac that has stolen his life. Alexis says she knows what has been happening with the imposter as Julian filled her in. Luke figures out that Julian was in on the whole scheme and he wants to strangle him. Alexis tries to calm Luke down and tells Julian perhaps he should leave. Julian doesn’t want to leave her alone here, but will go. Julian tells Luke that he didn’t want to do this to him, that the imposter threatened his family and shot Lucas. Later Alexis wants to take Luke to General Hospital, but he refuses to go to another hospital. Alexis tells him then they are going straight to the station to see Anna.
As the Quartermaine clan sits down to eat their pizza, Alexis arrives with a very special guest. Luke walks in and asks if they saved a slice for him. He then winks at Tracy.
Alexis calls Sam to say she has an emergency with a client and can't make it to the family dinner. Meanwhile, Anna is in her office going over the reports of Faison's death. Alexis enters and requests Julian's release. Anna doesn't see why she's sticking her neck out for him but agrees to sign the paperwork. As Alexis bustles out, Sloane shows up to lay into her about Faison again. They bicker and he warns that she will need to build a great defense. Kyle tells her how hard all of this is for him, but she'll be going away for a long time. After Anna is left to mull that over, Duke arrives at her door. Later, Julian is released. Alexis insists she did this for Luke. She insists on going to see him alone but Julian thinks they need to do it together.
Luke groggily wakes up in a padded room at Miscavige and finds Helena looming over him. He assumes she's a hallucination and recalls shooting her. "It was not a silver bullet," she says. She cuddles him and purrs, "Love live the queen." When she tries to kiss him, he leaps away. She taunts him. He demands to know who has been living his life. Helena puts a blade to his chin and explains that there cannot be two Lukes. Meanwhile, Julian and Alexis arrive. Julian explains that Luke has been there almost a year. As they head for Luke's room, Helena walks out. "Evil doesn't die," Alexis sneers. Helena would like to slit her throat, just like she slit her mother's. She wanders off. Alexis shakes her head. Julian wonders who that was. The lawyer walks into Luke's room and gasps.
