Brigadier Alysande Stuart and her brother professor Alistaire Stuart were the founders of the Weird Happenings Organisation (W.H.O.), a group created to replace the Resources Control Executive (R.C.X.) as Britain's primary organisation for the investigation of supernatural and superhuman incidents. The W.H.O. wasn't the only government organisation concerned with the paranormal though, as the R.C.X. remained in a different form and the F.I.6. was another similar organisation. The W.H.O. successfully combined military (through Alysande) and scientific (through Alistaire) methods.
Sent to investigate the disappearance of a train and the reappearance of a similar train from an alternate dimension, the W.H.O. met Excalibur, Britain's primary superhero team. Excalibur and Alistaire himself would vanish for some time as the train and team were drawn across many alternate realities. The group would meet more then one alternate version of Alysande. One of these versions, where she held her brother's job, was rescued by Nightcrawler from danger, during which he confessed an attraction to 'his' version of Alysdane. After the team was recovered safely, the Stuarts and Excalibur became close friends and W.H.O. would often call in Excalibur's aid.
Alysande also assisted in the defense of Muir Island against the Reavers as part of a group which would unofficially be known as the Muir Island X-Men.
In X-Men True Friends #3, (Nov. 1999), Alysande is shown to have the trust of the Queen of England herself. She is asked to be part of a semi-private walk through the gardens of Holyrood Palace in Scotland, to ensure privacy.
Later, Alysande would be accused of traitorous activiities, based on circumstansial evidence.
During the Air-Walker incident, the leader of S.H.I.E.L.D., Nick Fury offers Alysande limited use of the Helicarrier's surveillance equipment. She had known Nicholas Fury when she was a junior officer attacheed to S.H.I.E.L.D. as a N.A.T.O. liaison. Fury allowed her use of the Helicarrier's surveillance systems seeing as how it was already in British airspace on other business (concerning the hero Motormouth).
The systems were used by W.H.O. to successfully hunt for Cayre and his creations. Alysande is then accused of paying off S.H.I.E.L.D. with classified secrets.
An investigation was called, but Alysande died during Excalibur's Braddock Manor housewarming party, murdered by Jamie Braddock. At her funeral, Nick Fury, director of S.H.I.E.L.D. tells Alistaire that Alysande had been framed and her name was to be cleared. Alistaire would later find out that the R.C.X. had been responsible for framing Alysande, hoping to weaken W.H.O. and increase their own power. The R.C.X. organization was nuetralized by Alistaire, Excalibur, an internal mutiny and several old friends of Brian Braddock himself.
