HSRH Princess Trixi Alixander II [she/her, they/them] of the Land of Ix is a 2019-introduced and all-around character.

She is the daughter of Zixi, Witch-Queen of the Land of Ix, and titular character of the novel Queen Zixi of Ix, written by American author L. Frank Baum. She is a first year (or, Freedom Year) student at the time of the Rebel Movement and rooms with Lullian Burton.

Formerly in line for her mother’s partly antagonistic role, Trixi is an aspiring starlet who jumpstarted her Ever After film career by shirking destiny and the throne altogether, claiming the Rebel label for herself. Being a dramatic and vainglorious personage, some might say she fulfills the part of wicked witch, but in secret she’s troubled by more than a few insecurities.

None, however, that aren’t outweighed by a strong sense of determination and ambition. Not to mention, an uncompromising crave to make something of herself by herself for herself.

Character

Personality

When “sublime” and “resplendent” are part of your royal title, you really can’t help but develop an ego. And if honesty is at play here, Trixi displays her own vanity as clearly as a mirror reflects an image.

She has a sensational presence others take notice of, and with more than a healthy sense of self-awareness, this is largely by design. Whether on camera or behind-the-scenes, her every action, reaction, and phrase is seemingly exaggerated for dramatic effect. All of Ever After High is Trixi’s stage, and she’ll be a black cat’s aunt if she’s ever to tone things down. Just the mere request of humility will get her huffy and launch her into what many would call her “diva setting”, which happens to be somewhat of a default.

Devoted foremost to herself, Trixi comes across as utterly self-involved, not to mention self-defined. Garden-variety success isn’t enough for this ambitious witch. She’s determined to make her own way, and would rather fail on her own shortcomings than obtain her dreams by any other means. Her career is her most precious entity, and she would never accept it merely being gifted to her: her royal status must not be a factor.

Rebel-inclined tendencies aside, Trixi shares an unfortunate number of traits with her role, and when it comes to the allotment of things, she is prone to taking more than her fair share. Worse still, she’s keen on the “borrowing” of her familiars’ items for her own use, and does not comprehend the concept of returning items in a timely manner, if at all. In fact, “asking” is often not involved as well. Though most put up with this flaw in fear of curses and hexes, it’s an irritating behavior that drives most others to keep precious possessions out of sight when this certain someone is present.

Though her vainglorious attitude might imply otherwise, Trixi isn’t solely attentive to herself. In fact, she’s a pro at detecting the motivations of others, as if in character study. In Hollywood terms, she can read people like a script, and has a shrewd knack for knowing and predicting how certain circumstances will occur and how those involved will respond to them (she thinks of these as “probability hexes”). It’s almost frightening, and if it weren’t for her sheer aversion to paying attention to the issues at hand, she might be able to use it to her advantage.

It may be a tad bit ironic seeing as she is a witch - but of course, an actress as well - Trixi is superstitious to the max. The circumstances are irrelevant: she’ll take any and all precautions to ensure no misfortune comes her way. Yet another reason the audience of Ever After High will pay attention to her, most take note of her eccentric and obvious methods of deflecting so-called “bad energies”. Unfortunately, it’s during these rituals that she’s at her least calculated, and any interruptions will likely result in a curse inflicted upon whoever dares to take them away from her.

For all her aspirations, Trixi has one tragic quality that comes close to keeping her from accomplishing what she’s really capable of. Even her bouts of denial can’t change the fact that she’s insecure, and all too often compares herself to the A-listers in a negative way. It just sort of happens, and while she puts her acting chops to use by appearing as if she’s entirely pleased by where and who she is, the truth is she thinks she should already be on to bigger and better things.

All this taken into account, however, Trixi is more than capable of ensuring her own path to the lifestyle and renown she desires. Royal taboos be damned, once she figures something needs to be done for herself, she’s an unstoppable force of resolution, regality, and magic.

Hobbies and Interests

Acting

Trixi has always been used to the public eye, of course, being the darling daughter of the Queen Zixi and heir to the throne of all Ix. She's been acting for about as long, too, performing in royal masques and plays for the court of nobles. However, it wasn't until the summer before she was to attend Freedom Year at Ever After High that her passion for performance truly hit its pinnacle.

While spending summer break at an acting camp in Tinseltown, Trixi filmed her breakout role in the most recent Fairy Mobfather film, where she played a mob princess. Her performance received rave reviews, with the public praising her debut and expecting her to rise in the Tinseltown hierarchy. The hype got so immense that she even took a year off from school to work on more projects, much to the chagrin of her mother and the court of Ix.

Film Studies

Appearance

Due to her special brand of appearance-altering witchcraft, Trixi possesses many forms, each of her own design. However, the majority of them are modeled after film icons of the past, enabling her to pass for a fair few years older than she truly is. By default, she stands at a respectable 5’8”.

Her most common and preferred look is inspired by Hedy Lamarr. In line with her muse, she has black hair styled in a curly vintage shoulder-length bob, a pointed face-shape with high cheekbones and a prominent chin, and a curvaceous build. Her eyes, however, remain a deep black color, and her skin has a brown complexion.

A couple of her secondary looks retain her general shape, size, and skin-tone, but are based off of Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn, respectively, with the first featuring another curly shoulder-length bob (platinum blonde this time) with blue eyes, and the other displaying a straight brown ponytail with hazel eyes.

To accommodate her ever-changing physical traits, Trixi stays neutral with a black and white color scheme. All her outfits utilize mirrors and glass shards for motifs, along with various witchcraft insignia, and symbols such as spiders, potions, and black cats are used also. In addition, she wears Hollywood-inspired decorations such as film strips, stars, and diamonds.

Also commonly incorporated are fishnets and wide-brimmed hats, and Trixi wouldn’t be caught dead without her black boots.

Trixi’s tagline

Queen Zixi of Ix
Queenzixi.jpg

On the night of a full moon, the fairies ruled by Queen Lulea are dancing in the Forest of Burzee. Lulea calls a halt to it, for "one may grow weary even of merrymaking". To divert themselves, another fairy recommends that they make something they can imbue with fairy magic. After several ideas are considered and rejected, the fairies decide to make a magic cloak that can grant its wearer one wish. The fairy who proposed it, Espa, and Queen Lulea agree that such a cloak will benefit mortals greatly. However, its wish-granting power cannot be used if the cloak is stolen from its previous wearer. After the fairies finish the golden cloak, Ereol arrives from the kingdom of Noland whose king has just died. On the advice of the Man in the Moon, Ereol is dispatched to Noland to give the magic cloak to the first unhappy person she meets.

Meanwhile, Noland's five high counselors assemble in the capital city of Nole and refuse to allow the valet Jikki to ring the bell that indicates the king has died until they decide how to choose his successor. Retrieving the book of the law of Noland (to be used only when the king is unavailable, for the king's will is law in Noland), the counselors learn that the forty-seventh person to pass through Nole's eastern gate at sunrise is to be declared king or queen. The next day, the five counselors assemble at the eastern gate and count off the procession entering Nole. Number forty-seven turns out to be Timothy (who everyone calls "Bud"), the orphaned son of a ferryman who, with his sister Meg (nicknamed "Fluff"), is entering town with their stern Aunt Rivette, a laundress for the city of Nole. Along the way from their house to Nole, Ereol meets Fluff and gives her the magic cloak due to her unhappiness at Bud's ill-treatment by Rivette. The power of the cloak is first seen when Fluff wishes she could be happy again, and she becomes so. Bud—now King Bud—is welcomed by the high counselors and the people of Nole as their new king. His sister Fluff becomes Princess Fluff, and they take residence in the royal palace.

Aunt Rivette is relegated to an upper room of the palace. While Bud and Fluff glory in their new positions of authority and their possessions, Aunt Rivette wants to spread the news of her good fortune to her friends. She asks Fluff if she can wear her cloak, and she becomes so tired walking that she wishes she could fly. Two wings sprout from Aunt Rivette's back, causing her to panic at first, but she soon becomes very adept at using them. On its way back to the Princess, the cloak passes through the hands of the king's counselors and the king's valet, each of whom have their wishes immediately granted.

The minstrel Quavo crosses from Noland over a steep mountain range into the land of Ix, whose witch-queen ruler Zixi learns of the magic cloak and seeks to use it to make her reflection in a mirror as beautiful as she has made herself. Zixi is 683 years old, but her magic has allowed her to appear sixteen for a long time; however, the queen's reflection appears as old as she truly is. Believing that Princess Fluff would not simply give her the cloak to use since Ix and Noland aren't on speaking terms, Queen Zixi disguises herself and opens a school for witchery in Noland. Princess Fluff arrives as one of the pupils in her second-best cloak; Zixi is discovered to be a would-be thief when she demands the Princess wear the other, magic cloak. Next, Zixi leads the royal army of Ix to conquer Noland, but the counselors use their wish-granted abilities to repel the invaders back across the mountains.

Zixi disguises herself again and arrives at the royal palace of Noland to be hired as a serving maid to Princess Fluff. When she is alone in the Princess' chamber, Zixi summons imps to make a replica of the magic cloak and replace the Princess' magic cloak with that one. She is not caught in the theft, but when Zixi tries to use the cloak herself, its power fails because she stole it. Believing that its power is gone, Zixi leaves the cloak in the forest. The queen of Ix is sorrowful until she realizes through encounters with an alligator that wants to climb a tree, an owl that wants to swim like a fish, and a girl who wants to be a man, that she has been foolish to be unhappy with her lot.

The Roly-Rogues live on a high plateau above Noland and Ix. When one of the ball-shaped people accidentally bounces into Noland and views the city of Nole, they decide to conquer Noland in preference to constantly fighting among themselves. Even with their wish-granted abilities (the general wished himself ten feet tall, the lord high executioner wished for stretching arms, etc.), King Bud's counselors and Nole are soon overwhelmed by the invaders. King Bud, Princess Fluff, Aunt Rivette, and lord high steward Tallydab (who wished for his dog Ruffles to talk) escape and plan to retrieve the magic cloak which they believe is in the palace. Aunt Rivette carries Bud and Fluff to the palace and they battle past the Roly-Rogues, but when Bud puts on the cloak (since he hadn't made his wish yet; he was saving it) and wishes the Roly-Rogues away, nothing happens. Caught aback, Aunt Rivette takes her niece and nephew in flight with her to Ix on the opposite side of the mountain range that the Roly-Rogues came from.

Welcomed by Queen Zixi, who confesses that she stole the real magic cloak, Princess Fluff promises that she will let her use it after the Roly-Rogues are defeated. When they arrive where Zixi had left the cloak in the forest, it's gone and the party mounts a search to find it. Along the way, Zixi notes that the alligator, owl, and girl have become satisfied with who each of them are. The cloak was found by Edi, a shepherd who took it to Dame Dingle, a local seamstress. The seamstress reveals that she cut the cloak in half, used one half, and gave the other away. Zixi, Bud, Fluff, Rivette, Tallydab, and Ruffles track down the remaining pieces of the cloak, but one of them cannot be retrieved because the woman who had it sewed it into a necktie for her seaman son, and he won't be back home for a year.

Without the complete cloak, Bud can't wish the Roly-Rogues away. Queen Zixi uses the contents of a Silver Vial mixed in with their soup to defeat the Roly-Rogues. They're put to sleep for ten hours in which time Zixi and her army tie the tucked-in creatures up (when they sleep or roll, the Roly-Rogues retract their heads, arms, and feet) and send them all bobbing in the river on the Ix side of the mountain range. King Bud and his allies retake Nole, and the lands of Noland and Ix declare lasting friendship between them.

Later that year, the sailor whose necktie had the last piece of the magic cloak returns home and presents a necktie similar in appearance to King Bud, for he'd lost the other one at sea. Enraged, King Bud is about to have the sailor and his mother put in prison when Queen Lulea of the fairies appears to take the cloak away because it has caused so much trouble. She undoes the foolish wishes that the cloak granted, allowing the wiser ones to remain, and graciously allows Bud to use the cloak for one last wish: "that I may become the best king that Noland has ever had!" Lulea will not grant Zixi's wish to see her own beauty, because the fairies do not approve of those who practice witchcraft. Queen Zixi returns to her kingdom, to rule it with kindness and justice—but, with her wish unfulfilled, must always beware of a mirror.

How Trixi Comes Into It

After the retelling and its respective Happily-Ever-Afters, the reigning Zixi, known for her religious dedication to royal duties, sought to produce an heir for the story. Finding a suitor was simple enough, given her radiant (if not occasionally deceiving) appearance, not to mention Ix’s rather lax attitude towards social class in general. Thus, she happily married a common soldier from Ix City. A grand royal wedding occurred, and Trixi joined her family soon after, though she was called “Prince Ixavier II” at the time.

Viewpoint on Destiny

In essence, Trixi views destiny as the ultimate typecasting: playing the same role forever after. While certainly fond of her royal lineage, she is foremost an artist, a performer at heart and, frankly, dislikes the responsibilities tied to being head-of-state.

Therefore, she has abdicated the throne, effectively distancing herself from destiny to focus on her film career alone. This action was certainly met with quite the controversy back in Ix, and was broadcasted to the neighboring fairylands and even as far as the realms of Ever After (including Snow White's queendom and Fairymerica alike).

However, as Trixi would say, “all publicity is good publicity,” and free of her royal duties, she intends to follow this path, for better or for worse.

Parallels

  • Trixi is an actress - Zixi, in the first half of the story, uses her witchcraft to take on several different looks and identities as methods to steal the Magic Cloak, essentially “acting the parts”
  • Trixi is selfish and tunnel-visioned, each defining personality traits - Zixi all but abandons her royal duties to pursue the Cloak
  • Trixi is burdened with the unfortunate tendency to borrow others’ possessions without explicitly asking permission to do so - Zixi has several attempts of cape larceny in the story
  • Trixi is insistent on accomplishing tasks independently - Zixi has a complete and total willingness to not only steal the cloak herself, but to also lead her queendom into battle in-person
  • Trixi’s full royal title is a variation of Zixi’s from The Road to Oz: “Her Sublime and Resplendent Majesty Queen Zixi of Ix!”

Relationships

Family

Mother - Elixabeth Alixander

collapsed for size

If Trixi’s unfortunate haughtiness is partially a result of her title, then she ought to have inherited this attitude straight from her own mother: the Sublime and Resplendent Queen Zixi of Ix herself (and founder and CEO of IxiCo, the famed oil and weapons conglomerate).

An immensely powerful woman “wise beyond her years”, as her daughter used to put it, Zixi commands whole armies and puts her queendom well on the map.

Though a strong figure to have as a parent, her preoccupation with the affairs of state have left her daughter feeling somewhat disregarded; a possible partial origin to Trixi’s disinterest in the throne. Despite this bitterness, Zixi did not feel anything was out of place within her own family’s dynamic, and thus was caught by initial shock and a feeling of betrayal over her daughter’s declaration of rebellion.

This, however, eventually subsided mostly in favor of guilt, and Zixi now feels she has failed her heir. Trixi, too, feels she was too harsh in how she handled things, but as stubborn and prideful as her mother, neither feels particularly inclined to be the one to apologize.

Since then, their conversations have largely consisted of a series of curt and formal exchanges, and both secretly hope a third party will become involved to end the tedious nature of their current relationship.

Even after all this, though, if either was asked their opinion on the other, they would speak nothing but truthful praise. They do respect and love each other, in The End.

Father - Felix Alixander

Having had a more humble upbringing than either his wife or daughter, it’s likely that Trixi’s father supplied her with the more patient parts of her personality. Not only this, it was actually he who approved of her attending that acting camp, making him partly responsible for whatever comes next in her career. Unfortunately, being a more mild-mannered sort of king, he struggles to edge his way into this feud going on between his wife and daughter in order to help them resolve it. This makes him feel some degree of failure as the “man of the castle”, but even still, Trixi does not hold this or anything else against him, and continues to adore the man she calls “Father Dearest.”

Siblings - several

They exist and each have Ix names, like Beatrix or Phoenix.

Grandmother - Trixi Alixander I

They say some things skip a generation. For Trixi, that would be her willingness to diverge from the requirements set by the story. The Queen Mother of Ix, the first Trixi Alixander is known for having been ambivalent about her role, more laid-back and never quite as militant about the legacy as her daughter turned out to be, certainly not intending to raise her that way (though rumor has it was actually Elixabeth’s time at Ever After High that made her the way she is. Regardless, Trixi has always felt comfortable, heard, and supported by her beloved grandmother, and feels absolutely proud to share her name.

Adelaide Medison

As if one theatrical rivalry wasn’t enough, Trixi has another, more passionate one, with someone who isn’t even from the same story! She and the daughter of the Light Princess’ Nurse have had an intense stage competition going between them since the year started, full of passing insults and death glares that would make even the coldest starlets of old Hollywood blush. Frankly, Adelaide makes her grateful she started Ever After High late, because that’s at least one less year she has to put up with her. However... Trixi believes, nay, fears, that there’s another layer to their relationship, like a well-crafted on-screen dynamic. Maybe it’s just because she grew up on Fey’s Anatomy, but there’s something so appealing about this person she presumes to hate. They may not be friends, but after all, what is a rival, if not your other, who is significant?

Romance

Trixi is pansexual. Due to the queerness of Oz-adjacent countries in general, she can’t recall a time where she was ever under the impression she was anything but.

Unnamed fairy costar from The Fairy Mobfather

Groups

Pet

During the Animal Calling (which she was still allowed to attend, despite showing up a year late), Trixi summoned an exotic male black panther, thereafter named Lamarr. A sensational-looking creature, he’s actually as much of a kitten as any witch’s black cat. However, that doesn’t stop Trixi from parading him around where she feels like, and she’s taken to adorning him with various diamond-studded collars.

Trixi's Outfits
Trixi of Ix.png

First Chapter

Trixi’s outfit is the spell cast when the epitome of old Hollywood glamor meets the manifestation of iconic witch attire. She wears a glittering black cocktail dress which shines like glass. The upper half features a split bodice design, with the two sides decorated with a metallic silver line (invoking a mirror frame) and the inset center having a shattered glass pattern in silver. A sheer material resembling a silver spiderweb and patterned with stars ascends from the top of the bodice into a single shoulder strap which holds up the dress. The skirt is asymmetrical and features a slit that exposes her left leg. Dividing the two halves of the dress is a silver film strip belt with a reel-shaped buckle, and protruding from that is a second piece of sheer material which wraps around to the side of the dress. Around her neck is a black choker with a silver spider attached to it, and long strands of white pearls adorn her neck and descend down her torso. She wears chandelier earrings featuring “broken” dressing room mirrors surrounded with yellow lights, and shards dangle from them, some shaped like stars. On her right arm are large silver bracelets, and her left hand sports two large diamond rings. Both hands wear black fishnet gloves, with sheer ends that feature stars. Her legs are covered in black fishnets, thigh-high in length, and feature stars. Her black leather boots are extremely tall, almost vertical, and feature film strips wrapped around them, while the soles are silver and star-studded.

Her hair is meticulously curled into a vintage shoulder-length bob. Atop her head is a large black sun hat with an ornate pentagram pattern under the brim, and the top is pointy and shaped like a classic witch’s hat. Her makeup is heavy and flawless, with thick eyelashes, silver eyeshadow, and appealing red lips. For accessories, she holds a light blue potion bottle-shaped purse with a hybrid film strip/dark forest design, and waves a wand stylized after a vintage black cigarette holder.

Notes

Carlie Guevera, Trixi's portrayer of choice
