Alessandra "Alessa" Ferrari is a minor character in the Quest for the Past series. She is a former trainer and Coordinator, having started as a trainer as there were no contests in Unova and the mother of Ginvera Ferrari.

Once she finished the Unova league, she headed to the Hoenn region. There, she learned about Contests, and quickly adapted to the change and later fell in love with Contests. She competed in the Kanto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh contests and Grand Festivals, but never won a Grand Festival. Despite never winning, she was fine with it and eventually retired. Happy, she was able to do what she wanted. She eventually became the mother of a little girl she named Ginvera.
