A character slightly based on my own life.
Background: an ex special forces operator and medic from an unspecified country that came to Chernarus after his service on a vacation, while traveling the world. He hadn't intended to stay for a long time, his connection flight to Britian from Thailand has been suddenly cancelled while at the airport, as well as all other flights. He decided to book a hotel near the coast while the whole ordeal is sorted out. That's all he remembers. When he wakes up, he is very shocked at first at seeing a zombie apocalypse.
Motives: In the short term, survive. He understands he isn't going to do it alone though, so he's looking around the land to recruit and train, at least to some degree, fellow survivors. His goal is to create a stable place in which he can live and train, and also be hired for security, raiding or training missions, like guns for hire. The only difference is, a high moral standard. Alex only sides and works with people he feels have a good cause or are generally good people, and will help anyone he comes across, as in the Medic oath he took back in his military days. He is a religious man, despite all that had happened, and thinks that in a world that has been punished by God, he has to maintain his own humanity in order for good things to come.
He is looking to establish a task force with talented survivors which will be his team for these missions, and with them at the end of it all he is planning to escape, each to where they came from. He is a heavy smoker, an alcohol abuser, and a slightly condescending person yet he is also compassionate, patient, mature, experienced, and professional. He believes that a high professional standard is as important as a high moral standard. He zeroes, cleans and shoots his rifle every day. He is motivated by one thing - make the shitty world a better place, and when it will happen, God will arrange his escape.
