— Alyson to Alyssa
Alyson Kane was a governess for a wealthy Boston-based family. She was on route back from visiting her family when she got involved in the Forrest Hill Train Disaster at the age of 22. Alyson suffers from amnesia of her life before the accident, caused by a trauma.
The Dawsons, who were hunting nearby, heared the accident and rushed to the site. They found Alyson first out of those injured. Near death by fatal injuries, Alyssa turned her into a vampire. This sparks a feud between the two females, seeing as Alyson was ready to die and Alyssa didn't respect that wish.
Alyson then urged for Alyssa to find Dylan McKenzie, a family friend of the Bristol family she worked for. Alyssa soon discovered the two were more then friends, so she agreed to turning Dylan too. Time lacked to turn anyone else who was dying, yet Elisabeth was able to provide aid to some injured, increasing their chances of survival. Alyson and Dylan's bodies were reported never found, and they were assumed death. 2 of the 4 children under Alyson's care survived, and the Bristol family relocated.After coming to turns with her new faith as a vampire, she promised herself never to grant Alyssa to see her happy, as she wanted to punish the foolish girl who had given her an eternity of being a monster. Dylan aided in her recovery and adaption to vampire life.They moved to the West together, where there was more room to adapt to their new lives. It didn't go flawless, as Alyson fell into Type B-vampirism once, in the year 1891.
By the turns of the centuries, the two had become more then hunting buddies, and they confirmed their relationship to Elisabeth and James. Dylan made sure to first ask James' permision, seeing as Alyson had adapted his name in a coping mechanism to process the trauma of the accident.
In 1920 she and Dylan moved into an appartment in Chicago in an attempt to have a normal life. Dylan started working as a firemen. After one year however , Dylan came across some other vampires in the town and he became a type A-vampire , hiding this from Alyson. When he saves two teenagers from burning in a warehouse when he is on a job, Alyson finds out. She calls over Elisabeth and James. She watches Dylan struggle with a brief detox, and then stands by him as he takes responsibility for what he did to Nate and Lauren. Alyson also aids Elisabeth in explaining Lauren and Nate what vampirism means. She grows especially close to Lauren, and prevents her from interrupting her own funeral. They remain closeby, as Dylan tries to assist his sires as much as possible. In 1940 at the start of World WarII , they move back to America.
Alyson is a fashion cameleon, according to Elisabeth. She has played around with various different looks throughout time. She usually has brown hair, and an oval face.
- She is (after Jason Dawson) the second member withing the Dawsons from Boston. Both were also born within a century from one another : Alyson was transformed 2 years before Jasons 100th birthday.
- She is technically a member of The Millers, and therefore the 5th character to crossover to another coven, after James, Alyssa, Jason and Jared.
