Occupation: Former member of the Others.

Hails From: The Island.

Who She is: Alex Rousseau is thought to be the daughter of Ben, and stays with the Others even though she doesn't approve of what they do. Alex is Danielle Rousseau's 16-year-old daughter. She was kidnapped by the others as an infant. She helped Claire escape from the medical hatch (called The Staff) where she was kept by Ethan and the Others. When the Others met up with the search party Jack has assembled to find Michael, Tom tells Alex to bring out Kate. She questioned Michael about Claire and her baby. She also was with the Others when they kidnapped Jack, Kate, and Sawyer.

Alex at the StaffIn "The Glass Ballerina", she asked Kate about Karl, who she was obviously worried about. Karl was taken out of the cage next to Sawyer in "A Tale of Two Cities". Alex also mentions to Kate that the dress Ben put on Kate is hers.

Throughout the episodes we've seen her in, she seems to do as the Others say, but it is clear that she is sympathetic towards the survivors, and is willing to help them when they need it, probably partially due to the way she sees them treat Karl and the survivors in general.

The others refer to Ben as her father, but Alex herself has called him both "dad" and Ben. According to Rousseau, her husband's name was Robert and she was pregnant when they wrecked on the island. Since Ben informs Jack that he's been on the island his whole life, Ben as Alex's biological father would be impossible. However, Ben isn't the most trustworthy person, nor is Rousseau the sanest. Either could be lying.
In "Greatest Hits" when Karl says, "Won't that make your dad mad?" Alex asks, "Is he my Dad?" Karl looks surprised, and doesn't answer.

Alex at the quarryWhile Kate and Sawyer were held prisoner at the Hydra, Alex attacked the Others working at the quarry. She wanted to know where Karl was at, and wanted to talk to Ben. Alex was taken away, but warned Kate that they would kill Sawyer, just liked they killed her boyfriend.

In "The Man from Tallahassee" John breaks into Ben and Alex's house. When Alex comes to check on her 'father' Locke grabs her, and then hides with her in the closet when another Other comes to tell Ben that they have captured Kate and Sayid. Ben tells the man to "bring me the man from Tallahassee." When John asks if that is code for something, Ben says "No, we don't have a code for 'there's a man in the closet with a gun to my daughter's head'... although we obviously should."

Later, when Kate and Sawyer escaped, Alex offered to help them get off the Hydra Island, as long as they save Karl. They went to Room 23, which was guarded by Aldo. They tricked him, and went inside. Karl was being brainswashed, but they managed to free him. He needed to be carried away. Alex gave them a raft, which Kate, Sawyer, and Karl used to get back to the main Island.

John has Alex go retrieve Sayid's bag, supposedly under her father's orders. When she goes to walk away, Sayid says, "You look just like your mother." Alex is puzzled and tells Sayid that her mother is dead. He says, "Yes, I am sure that is what they told you." So the question now is, will Alex want Sayid to explain more to her about her mother? Will she ask him questions the next time she runs into him?

Alex and Rousseau meet for the first timeAfter telling Karl to warn the survivors about the Others' ambush, Alex goes with Ben to the Radio Tower to intercept the survivors. Ben and Jack meet, and Ben is beaten by Jack, thinking Sayid, Jin, and Bernard are dead. The crippled Ben lays there, and introduces Alex to her mother, Rousseau, for the first time.

During the split of the survivors, Alex joins Locke's group, along with Ben, Karl, and Rousseau.

While on the way to the Barracks, Ben, who is tied up, prisoner, attempts to talk to Alex, but she ignores him. After Ben shot Charlotte, Locke held him at gunpoint, but Alex protested against this. Locke told Rousseau to take Alex away, but Ben's life is spared after he reveals information about Charlotte.

Ben, worried about the coming of the freighter people, told Alex, along with Karl and Rousseau to head to the Temple for safety. He said it is the only safe place left on the Island. However, they never reached their destination, because mercenaries from the Kahana ambushed them, killing Karl and Rousseau. Alex surrendered, shouting not to shot because she is Ben's daughter.

Alex surrendersAlex was captured, and held prisoner. Keamy gave Miles a walkie-talkie so he can give it to Ben to communicate. After Ben discovered Alex was being held hostage, he agreed to talk with Keamy. After a standoff, Ben announced that Alex meant nothing to him, but then Keamy killed Alex, execution style, and walked away. Ben, out of shock and grief, "summoned" the Monster to attack the mercenaries. Before leaving, he went to Alex for the final moments with her.

Some time in the future, Ben travels to Charles Widmore's house, and accused him of killing Alex. Widmore, however, blames Ben for her death. Ben said that Widmore "changed the rules", and that he will find and kill his daughter, Penelope Widmore.

Alex is the french woman's daughter, but since she was a baby when she was stolen, she believes that Ben is her father and who knows who she believes is her mother. Maybe Ben adopted her through Hanso Adoptions :) And also why are Tom and Juliet keeping Ben and Alex away from each other???

I believe that the biological father of Alex is the son of Charles Widmore.
It is just a feeling, and there is no evidence to support this theory.
But neither is there any proof that it isn't true : we don't know the last name of her biological father Robert.
It would be an interesting connection that would give Charles Widmore a reason for redemption.

Finally Alex has met her mother, although the reunion seemed a bit short. I hope that next year we will see more of the emotional drama that this meeting will unfold.
