Alice being a "spare" or even a "third" in a noble or other well-to-do family may let her pursue skills that wouldn't normally be typical, but this is DF-Land. Maybe spares and thirds are encouraged to be adventurers to help supplement the family fortune?
She was canonically right around seven years old (from the Wikipedia entry, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland took place on May 4 - maybe the Vorpal Sword is a lightsaber? - and she stated her age as seven-and-a-half in Through the Looking Glass, which took place November 4, putting her birthday close to when the first book took place). ST 8 (and DX and IQ 13) is pretty ridiculous for a 7-year-old, however, so your range is probably more appropriate.
