My early history is very vague, as I remember nothing of my human life and woke up as a vampire, all alone. It is eventually revealed that I was born around 1901 in Biloxi, Mississippi and was kept in an asylum because I had premonitions, which intensified into my "special ability" when I was changed into a vampire. While at the asylum I was kept always in a dark cell, which was another reason why I remember so little. I was changed by a vampire who worked at the asylum in order to protect me from James, a tracker. Bella and I are the only two people to ever escape James. After doing some research, I found my grave and discovered that the date on my tombstone matched the date of my admission to the asylum (I had stolen my file from their records), perhaps implying that I was 'dead' to my family when they confined me there. Through my research I additionally discovered that I had a little sister named Cynthia Brandon, and that Cynthia's daughter, my niece, is still alive in Biloxi. Before I found Jasper and the Cullen's coven my name was Mary Alice Brandon.
