Steve, Alex and Herobrine headcanons, mostly explaining backstory/characterization and what-not
The only one who was part of, for lack of a better term, the Old World.
They don't really remember much of anything about it, although they recall a bit more than when they first awoke with basically no memory. He has the vague knowledge there used to be more of him––that is, more players.
He also remembers the ships. And the fire.
(Specifically, I'm referring to that one biome that generated in the infinity snapshot that was a fleet of end ships. Y'know, the ones that also had orders like "cut," "obliterate," etc.? Yeah.)
Steve hasn't explained anything of the Old World to Alex, and hasn't said much of what his life was like prior to meeting Alex. He isn't ready to.
They have a degree of caution with just about everything. While Alex is totally fine with taking some fall damage from a few 4-block drops, Steve tries to find a path that avoids said damage––even if it's a very long and inconvenient path.
They've only ever been a part of the New World––that is, the recovering world after something destroyed essentially everything of the Old World. Alex just thinks this is how the world's always been.
They take a lot of new info with a shrug and "Okay!", even in the case when Steve introduced them to Herobrine. Everything is new to them, so there isn't a lot that strikes them as not belonging/illogical.
That doesn't mean she's naïve, though. She's cautious with any new mob she comes across, and is very good at determining if there's any hostility. She also recognizes that Steve avoids talking about life prior to their meeting.
She's outgoing and likes hanging out in villages. She can't understand the villagers and vice versa, but they can still have something like a conversation.
Her favorite weapon is the trident with Riptide. Fork go whoosh.
They're very quiet and rarely speak. Mostly, they just observe.
They sometimes try to do things that Steve does, like mine and farm. They don't totally understand the purpose of why Steve does these things, though, and so they end up with extensive 2 × 2 mines that leave behind all the ores and leafless trees as they think mining anything foliage-wise is farming.
They got better about it once Steve took the time to explain why. Now Steve and Alex will find random small farms (wheat, potato, carrot) about the world.
They're a manifestation of loneliness, of wanting to be seen, of wanting someone to mine and build with, of wanting someone to share food with––of the universe wanting anybody else, when all the universe had was itself.
They spend a good amount of time in the Nether, watching lava bubble in the lava seas. They find it calming.
