A teenage girl with an interest in magick, Lori lost her mother to a drug overdose. She then discovered that she has immense magical power, being able to borrow abilities from other magic users – she has demonstrated abilities associated with Doctor Fate, Zatanna and the Marvel Family. Over the following two months, she tracked down and killed half a dozen drug dealers, hoping that one of them might be the one who supplied the drugs that killed her mother. Oracle got wind of this and sent Black Canary and Huntress in to her town – Dayton, Ohio – to investigate. They confronted Lori, now calling herself Black Alice, preventing her from killing another three drug dealers. She was then taken into the care of Doctor Fate, who was to help her learn how to use her abilities properly. However, Doctor Fate died soon after this, and Black Alice found herself alone, and suddenly drawn into a battle against the Spectre. More recently, various evil magic-users have tried to sway her into working with them.
