Alex Russo


The middle child and only female out of the three Russo siblings. She is sly, outgoing, and usually underachieves when it comes to regular high school. She often gets into trouble because of her constant schemes (usually involving magic). She likes to make fun of her older brother, Justin, with whom she has a really close, complex relationship and she gets along with her younger brother, Max, the two of them occasionally being shown pulling pranks together. It is implied that she is her father's favorite child and that she shares a tight bond with her mother, although they sometimes have disputes due to Alex's rebellious and disobedient personality.

The Grand Finale reveals that she becomes the family wizard. She was about to win, but went back to free Justin from a tree root that caught his foot. It appeared to everyone else that Justin won, but before he accepted, he told Professor Crumbs and everyone else what happened. He gives the title to Alex, who after some coaxing from Justin, accepts and is embraced as the true winner.

(1:30 mark), a few hundred years in the past and future with time travel. Likely higher since she just needed to specify the time period for the spell, planetary with time stop, possibly higher. It isn't specified if they need a certain device or not to do this. This time stop lasts for a year. Another variation lasts as long as the user can stand on one leg.

Standard Equipment: One wand, the family wizard robe

Note: This is a profile for Alex but it also details the general abilities a wizard should have by the end of the series. These feats mainly occurred in the first two seasons while they were learning magic so these abilities should be applicable to EoS wizards like Justin, Professor Crumbs, and other (competent) family wizards.
