They say that its a lottery in which family you are born into, the opportunities could be endless or none. For Alex, it was supposed to be endless but instead, he chose the wrong path in life. Alex grew up in a rich family and had everything he wanted. Growing up in the capital of Chernarus in Novigrad wasn't anything really special. If he asked for something he got it and this lead to him developing a quite demanding personality. If he didn't get what he wanted he became and could cause quite a ruckus. His brother and sister were always teasing him being the youngest. He hated this and always yelled at them saying he hated them. Alex didn't pay attention in school at all instead he wanted to pick fights with everyone he saw. When Alex was 12 years old his brother finally had some use for him. He would lend him his cigarettes and letting him smoke them. Alex loved the kick he got out of it and the nicotine rush.
Hitting teenage years Alex had trouble with authorities and drugs. Since he didn't care about the school instead he spent the days with his friends who were the local thugs. Relatives and his family tried helping him but he didn't care about them. He needed the kick out of the heroin and he loved it. People told him he got an addiction but he didn't care. One of the drug dealers only spoke English which forced Alex to learn a little bit of it. He couldn't speak it very good but enough to get some drugs from the man.
Hitting 17 Alex decided to say fuck it and ran away from home becoming homeless. This was way better than listening to those snarky adults who didn't understand him. Stealing and getting into fights got a good kick out of him. It was interesting how much he could tolerate before passing out. Alcohol was also an interesting drug. Drinking was way easier to get ahold of than heroin since he didn't really make that much money. He would usually scrape what he could find get ahold off and that would be it.
Alex became 19 when those dead things started walking around. He didn't really care much since he still needed to get ahold of those drugs. Only problem the dealer was now one of those dead things. So it became a problem for him. He's now trying to find the drugs that are left in the country to feed his addiction.
Reaching about half a year into the outbreak Alex starting experiencing memory loss. He believed this was linked to his heroin usage but didn't manage to stop with it. One day he woke up not knowing where he was. He can only remember about 2 years back of his life. He had forgotten all about the country that he was born in and didn't know anything about the language. It was like it all had disappeared from him all of sudden.
