Alex grew up on a farm just outside of Grapevine, Texas. He grew up with a passion for hunting, fishing, camping, and he just had a love for the outdoors in general. He went to university after high school, but after he graduated, he decided to stay home and work with his father on the farm. The year of the outbreak, Alex went on a hunting trip in Livonia, with his father, and a few family friends. When the outbreak hit, they had no idea. They first encountered an infected when they entered a small town in Livonia. This is when they first realized that something was wrong. They tried to contact the rest of their family back in the United States, but at this point it was already too late. At first they tried to take shelter in town and wait it out, thinking the outbreak would end. Soon they began to run low on supplies, and they started to venture out in search of food and water. This is when they started losing group members. Someone would go out scavenging for supplies and never come back. Soon it was just Alex and his father, who decided to travel further into Livonia in search of refuge. Alex's father was killed by a horde of infected at an abandoned military checkpoint on the road. Since then, he has been wandering Livonia, surviving off of wild animals. He does his best to help those in need, but always puts himself first.
