Alexander is a muscular 23 year old male, with a slim build, black hair, and blue eyes. Standing at 6'1, his stature is a bit imposing to those with weak constitutions. He is usually seen wearing a dark blue vest, with matching overcoat and pants, and brown shoes. He carries his two Katanas, one strapped to his back, and the other on his right hip.
Cool, calm, and collected, Alexander is all of these things. He has a rater sarcastic way of speaking, and it can at times rub people the wrong way. He's never one to get too overly excited, usually keep himself composed, rather than letting his emotions show. Though he is a pirate, he believes in chivalry, and has a hard time fighting women. In fact, it's almost cripillingly so.
Alex was born on a small, nearly deserted, island in the East Blue. The island was very sparse of people, with it's entire population hovering around twenty-five to thirty people. He has no idea how he ended up on this island, or what his real name is, as he was abandoned by his parents at a young age. He was found by an older man, who took in the young Alexander, and raised him as his own. As Alex grew up and began to become restless, the old man, who had been a marine at one point in his life, decided to train the boy in the finer points of swordsmen ship. Thus began Alex's love for swords.
Being on an island with no real commerce or trade, and having to hunt and farm just for food, their was an apparently lack of swords. There was not, however, a lack of raw materials for Alex to use. Either from ore found on the land, or items that would wash onto the shores, Alex began to experiment, and teach himself the art of smithing these materials into swords, which is how he came into possession of the two katanas he now wielded on his person.
As he grew up, however, Alex became bored. He was a trained fighter, a decent smith, living on an island where he would never become anything. He became rebellious, against the island, against the old man, against everything. Finally, on his 23rd birthday, he had enough. He stole some of the old man's nicest clothes, a small dingy which he had hoped would get him to the nearest port, and took off for adventure.
Combat Style Edit
Alexander is very much an up and close melee fighter. He prefers to force himself into his enemy's space, and overpower them with quick, powerful, blows until they collapse.
