- "Finished churning up the cream of the City Watch, I see. Not a bad effort, for a man of your age."
- —Alexi to Corvo after he beats a group of the Watch during practice
Her speech and mannerisms seem to indicate she is a friend of Corvo Attano, as they seem comfortable enough with each other to trade light sarcasms, and Corvo thinks very highly of her. Alexi also shows an in-depth knowledge of the Watch members under her command.
Alexi was born in Potterstead to Paulina and Gideon Mayhew, and had moved to Dunwall by 1841. Growing up, Alexi was a close personal friend of Emily Kaldwin, going so far as to take carriage rides with the young Empress. On one such ride, a group of Regenters attacked the carriage when Corvo was too far away to assist. Alexi helped Emily hold off the Regenters, even throwing a lit grenade back at them, until the City Watch arrived and arrested the attackers. When Alexi turned 18, she was immediately appointed to the Watch. By 1850, she was a lieutenant. By 1852, Emily had personally promoted her to captain.
The Wyrmwood Deceit
Alexi is stationed at Dunwall Tower where she has elite members of the Watch train, some against the Royal Protector himself. She is quite impressed with the skills of young Watch Officer Cottings and remarks them.
Alexi has a squad of guards investigate an apartment, following Cottings's lead on the contraband operation. When the lead turns out to be an incendiary trap, she ceases the investigation, judging it too dangerous without Corvo's assistance.
After welcoming Emily to her mother's remembrance ceremony, she opens the doors to allow Emily entrance. After the coup, when Mortimer Ramsey seals Emily or Corvo in Emily's office, Alexi tries to intervene, but is stabbed by Ramsey. She survives until Emily or Corvo escapes and is able to talk to the protagonist briefly before dying of her wound. If Corvo is the protagonist, he is saddened by her death and writes to her family, describing her as "brave, loyal and selfless until the end", and promises that her death will be properly memorialized.
- Alexi is one of the few people to know for sure that the Imperial Safe Room actually exists - among most of the City Watch, it is merely a rumor.
