Alexandra “Alex” Hallaway was a witch who resided in Moonlight Falls during her lifetime. She is the mother of Abigail Hallaway, April Hallaway, Ava Hallaway, Arielle Stevens, and the wife of Jeremy Bennett.
Alexandra was born to Annabeth Hallaway and Phillip Hallaway, on 1959. Her father died when she was just a toddler, and so she was left to be raised by her mother alone. Anna taught her witchcraft and magic proficiently, making her one of the most intelligent and skilled witches of Moonlight Falls.
Alexandra constantly practiced magic as a teen, although sometimes she can neglect her own studies in school. Her mother sometimes cast spells to keep Alex away from trouble, though Alex, being skilled in magic, have invented spells to counter her mother’s.
Alex still lived with her mother as an adult, and she worked as a saleswoman at a local consignment store. She met a witch and businessman, Jeremy Bennett. They married and had two daughters, Abigail Hallaway, and April Hallaway. Alex and Jeremy decided to use Alex’s surname, instead of his for their daughters, as he believes that the name wards off evil. Alex and Jeremy agreed to keep the girls away from magic as much as possible and give them normal lives. 2 years after the birth of April, Alex had a major fight with Jeremy, due to his obsession over his career and lack of spending time with his daughters and family. The couple split for a year, with Jeremy not knowing that Alex had been pregnant with their third child. During her split from Jeremy, Alex secretly had an affair with the town’s local trickster, a fairy named Whit Woodbliss. Alex then falls pregnant, with Whit’s child. She later gave birth to her fourth child. Initially, she wants to keep her Arielle, but raising 4 kids with constant vampire attacks is not a good idea, so she gave her up for adoption, with a request to the social worker that her name starts with an “A”.
A year later, Alex and Jeremy went back together. After a night out, the couple were driving home, and they encountered an angry vampire who was cheated out by Jeremy Bennett over a business transaction. Jeremy tried to ward him off with spells, but the vampire incinerated Jeremy, while he threw Alex to a nearby river, drowning her.
