Alex grew up in the suburbs of Denver Colorado. His father Dr. James Smith (General Practitioner) and Mother Helen Kraker-Smith (teacher) raised Alex as best they could in the little time they had after their jobs.
It was a typical childhood, bullies, girlfriends and petty crimes for Alex. But after high school he began to shine.
Never one to shy away from challenges Alex took it upon himself to explore the world by backpacking. Made it most of they way too... then the apocalypse came.
He is stranded in Nyheim looking for a way home to his parents.
