Alek was born in the Siberian city of Novosibirsk to a Police Officer father, Patrik and an academic mother, Anna. His mother an academic lecturer at the State Technical University whilst his father worked shifts within the northern most part of the City across the Ob River. This left Alek in the care of his Grandparents in their small cottege sized house by the river in Ogurtsovo, travelling to and from the City to stay at the family home over the weekends until he was old enough to attend school.
He was an unremarkable pupil and did not excel at anything in particular, whilst he had the foundations of a clean athletic, he lacked the motivation to make anything of it. He grew tired of his City but was forever proud of his parents for their dedication to their work, this however left Alek without much in the way of fond childhood memories or any lasting ties to the City at all. By the time he was nineteen his grandparents had passed away, the only thing previously keeping him bound to his hometown. He enlists within the Russian Army in 2010 in order to see some more of the world.
During training, Aleks reasonably tall frame lent him to being ushered into the role of autorifleman and he is assigned to a mechanised infantry role, by the late summer of 2011 Alek has successfully passed out from training school and is assigned his battalion. By 2018 Alek is a veteran of several tours and now after the Chernarussian Socialist Republic has been integrated into the Russian Federation he is pulled into the newly formed 320th Motor Rifle Battalion, providing security and a measure of confidence (at least for the Russians) to South Zagoria.
After the confusion of May 31st, Alek now finds himself not in the 'no-brainer' tour he was hoping for, his quiet few years in the fresh province has been pulled into a dramatic and bloody close.
Aleksandr now finds himself assigned to a section with responsibnility within a FOB set up by the remnants of the Battalion, whilst the premise and anticipation of violence is not new to him, the current circumstances surrounding the extreme need of both his colleagues and that of the civillians caught up in the mass hysteria and extreme violence are entirely alien to him. His quiet city of Novosibirsk does not now seem so unappealing to him. He wonders how his parents are doing and vows to do his utmost to prevent what is happening here in Chernarus from bleeding into his own country.
