Alex is a tall1) (5 foot 10 inches) adolescent human male with pale skin. He has medium length messy dirty blonde hair, and hazel eyes. Though he is not overly muscular he is well toned2), and stronger than one would expect due to the implants he received. He has a small nose, high cheekbones and a sharp jawline with a slightly rounded chin. At the base of his neck is a crude telepathic relay node through which he would be issued commands by his captors. He is slender and weighs about 125 lbs following his imprisonment.
Alex's personality initially was very strange as a result of years of abuse from Psychopomp when he was in the SSI. While in a mecha or other craft he can use to fight, he was confident, bold and “heroic”, however when out of one, he was shy and uncertain of himself.
Now, after years of growth, Alex has grown into an individual who is (mostly) socially competant. He is now fairly kind and calm most of the time, and has displayed the capability to effectively command small groups, even once commanding a large fleet of warships for several operations. However, he is still hot-headed, and that can sometimes get the better of him.
There are negative sides to his personality though. Alex could be described as single-minded to a fault, hyperfocusing on a goal to the point where it is harmful to himself and others, as well as his relationships with other people affected by his hyperfocusing. Additionally, though the memories years of abuse from Psychopomp are mostly managed by now, Alex has what could be considered PTSD from the experience.
Alex was born in YE 22.
A company called Psychopomp LLC had developed a method through which to influence the genes of an unborn child. Alex's father, having been tricked into working on the project, fled the company with a woman who had been experimented on, who soon became pregnant. After 6 years of hiding, Psychopomp LLC caught up with them. Killing his mother and father, Psychopomp LLC took Alex into 10 years of captivity, during which he was subjected to a schedule of nearly nonstop flight training as well as hand to hand combat training. During this time Alex was implanted with an extremely invasive, early version of the Operator Guidance Unit as well as Cybernetics Aided Technology.
During this time, despite multiple memory wipes, Alex made friends with another test subject, Nomine Asakura. They grew close, and eventually she saved him by planting a virus on the ship that was supposed to send him to a buyer.
After that, Alex was rescued from a slow death in stasis by the OSO, which was on a mission to help the I'ee. After that, he served as a pilot for a time, recovering his memories, and met his lover, Araxie Serai before being adopted by Uso. After that, he founded the Sky Guard, and led them on many successful missions. Eventually, he met Nomine again, as she was spying on an airbase.. A scuffle followed, and after stunning her he had her Operator Guidance Unit removed by doctors in a self-centered attempt to repay Nomine for saving his life, after which she fled.
After this, Alex roamed alone for a time with Araxie and a small crew.
They met again during an anti-psychopomp operation conducted by the OSO, which ended with Alex letting her escape. After that, he set out to rescue embattled OSO forces attacking a Psychopomp facility.
Following this, the OSO began a decline, prompting part of the Sky Guard to leave, and Alex to be placed under arrest shortly after. He was in prison for several months, before being moved to an unknown location in the Rohini System.
In late YE 41, Alex was rescued from a large prison ship by an intelligence operative from Elysia, and the crew of the ISS Brimstone, who undertook the job at the behest of the lord of the New Dusk Conclave, Alex's old colleague Jack Pine. He has since settled down with Araxie in the green zone outskirts on Sirris VI.
Alex risked his life to retrieve the 3rd StratOps unit.
Defeated a NMX Hand of Fear.
Alex has the following notable skills:
Vehicle operation; Alex has extensive mecha training during his ten year captivity and is able to pull of aerobatic maneuvers, sustain high G forces for extended periods and maintain concentration in combat. His skills have served him time and time again, and he is one of the best pilots in the OSO.3)
Physical augments/Fighting; Alex has been through a grueling physical regimen that pushed his body to the limit. He possesses stamina on par with a marine before the advent of power armor, razor sharp reflexes, an incredible ability to ignore pain compared to the average person, and thanks to cybernetic augmentations possesses a superhuman speed and strength.
Communication; Alex is fluent in trade as well as familiar with operation of Radio, Laser, and Hyperspace Comm systems.
Alex has the following items:
Alex has an extremely invasive version of the Operator Guidance Unit, Which integrates the sensors and motors of his Mecha into his nervous system, making it a part of his body and allowing him to control it from long distances. This creates the effect of having two bodies, and because of this, his Mecha requires no conscious input to pilot. A downside is that this intimate linking of man and machine causes Alex to experience what the sensors of the Mecha does, feeling the pressure, heat, and a multitude of other senses incomprehensible to normal human brains, that his craft does. It also provides mindware functions.
Alex's old U-1 Unicorn Custom now rests inside a farmhouse near his home.
