Personality & Traits

General Overview
Ambitions Professionally, he'd like to make Sergeant and join the SWAT division, though on his ambitious days, he even thinks about pushing for Lieutenant.

Personally, he'd like to find that 'special someone', get married and have a family of his own.
Hobbies & Interests Alex loves the outdoors, especially the mountains. Its not uncommon for him on a long weekend or his vacation, to throw his camping gear in his truck and pick a random place on the map, drive out, and camp wherever he finds a good place. When he can't get away to the wilderness, you can find him at work, at home, a bar or restaurant relaxing with friends, or punching the heavy bag at the gym.

Personal History Alex was born and raised inside the LA city limits. While his family isn't exactly rich they could be considered 'well off'. His father is a corporate lawyer and his mother is a psychologist in private practice. They did their best to provide a higher level of comfort for their children than they had growing up. This suited the two younger children of the family just fine, Alex on the other hand didn't want things handed to him. He wanted to make his own way in the world. Knowing that he wanted to do something that, as he put it to his friends as a teenager, 'actually mattered and made a difference', he was highly active and motivated in sports. His coaches loved his drive and tenacity both on and off the field. His parents? Well to put it simply, his mother made it more often to his games than his father, who would have to 'schedule it in'.

He tolerated what he considered a 'coddling lifestyle' until he was 18 and legally able to get out on his own and live his own life. He turned 18 the month before he graduated high school and as soon as he did, he was talking to the local Army recruiter. Knowing that his parents would disapprove and do their best to guilt him into rethinking his decision, he didn't tell them he had enlisted until the night before he left for basic training. This revelation of course went over as well as a lead balloon, resulting in the type of argument rarely, if ever, seen in the family home. The only person who initially supported him in his decision was the youngest of the children, his sister. His brother sided with their parents, telling him that he was 'throwing away his life for no real purpose'. The argument ended when Alex grabbed his bag, and stormed out of the house, slamming the door behind him. It was six months before his father spoke to him again.

Within a year of enlisting, Alex was deployed to Iraq for his first of three combat deployments. For someone who had led a life of relative ease until that point, Iraq was an eye-opening and world changing experience. A lot of the infrastructure in the country was damaged by the time he arrived in 2009. Running water was hit or miss depending on where you were in country due to Improvised Explosive Devices damaging or destroying underground pipes along the roads. Electricity on base was provided by large generators, the kinds you'd see in large construction sites in the States. Life soon fell into a routine of guard duty, downtime and patrols. Firefights, and explosions soon became normal occurrences on patrol and gunfire and the resounding booms of distant explosions became background noise of life on base.

After his first tour overseas, Alex was ready for more of a challenge. He attended airborne and air assault schools, and was assigned to the 101st Airborne. He was with the 101st when he was deployed for the second time to Iraq. His unit suffered several casualties on this deployment, including being wounded himself by small arms fire during a patrol. He would be treated at the nearest medical unit and returned to duty with his unit. He would complete this deployment and when he returned to the States he would attend Ranger School. He was then assigned to 'D' company, 2nd Battalion of the 75th Ranger Regiment. He was with the Rangers when he was deployed for his third and final time in his eight year career, this time to Afghanistan.

After his time in uniform was finished, he returned to his parents home but only long enough for him to find a place of his own. Before he moved into his place, he traded his Army uniform for that of the LAPD. After completing his time at the Police Academy, he reported to the 77th Street Area, where he has remained ever since.
