Alis is a plump woman with brown hair and tree-bark like skin.
Alis has a warm motherly personality. She left the Summer Court to protect her two young nephews from Amarantha.
Fifty years before the main series, Alis lived in the Summer Court with a sister, her mate and their children. When Amarantha came to Prythian the Summer Court rebelled to her rule and Alis's sister and her mate were killed. So she fled with her nephews and asked asile to Tamlin in the Spring Court, since then she has worked as a maid in his manor. She was invited to the masquerade ball during which Amarantha throw her curse, and since than she wears a bird mask as the rest of the servants.
Alis lives in the Spring Court, employed by Tamlin as a maid. When Feyre first came to the court, it was her job to look after her.
Alis returns to working at the Spring Court after Amarantha was defeated. She insist on doing everything for Feyre in order to pay her back for breaking the curse and setting them all free.
When Feyre is rescued from the Spring Court by Morrigan, Alis witnesses it but makes no move to prevent it. She conceals the true nature of Feyre's rescue from Tamlin.
A Court of Wings and Ruin
Alis sees through Feyre's facade at the Spring Court, but does not mention it to Tamlin, only vaguely confronting Feyre once. When tensions at the Spring Court begin to rise, Alis decides to return to her home in the Summer Court, alongside her two nephews, and wishes Feyre well. Feyre tells her that she will always be welcome at the Night Court, as a farewell.
Alis serves in Tamlin's mansion during the duration of A Court of Thorns and Roses and A Court of Mist and Fury. Near the beginning of A Court of Wings and Ruin, she and her nephews return to the Summer Court to avoid the catastrophic war with Hybern.
Alis has always been kind and caring toward Feyre, although she is suspicious of her at the start of A Court of Thorns and Roses. When Feyre first arrives in the Spring Court, Ails warns her to "keep her mouth shut and her ears open." She also tells her to keep her wits about her. Her third piece of advice to Feyre is that Lucien "could do with someone snapping at him, if you're got the courage for it." She helped Feyre escape the manor when Tamlin locked her in and didn't believe Feyre lied about her time in the Night Court. In the end Feyre helped Alis and her nepwhes flee the Spring Court to go to the Summer Court.
- In A Court of Thorns and Roses is said that she belong to a species called Urisk.
