Alexandra was born into the Voztok family as the middle child out of 7. Growing up she would be raised with a firm hand from both his father and uncle. For long periods of time both father and uncle would be away working on railroads laying tracks, this gave some respite where mother would be in charge. She was a kindly soul, teaching the children at home when there was little to no time for school. Alexandra oldest brother soon took it upon himself to lead when father was away, and he started to dish out beatings on behalf of the household. Her youngest brother died to tuberculosis, a loss that devestated his mother. Never quite the same after she got overprotective over the now youngest child in the bunch, leaving the others in her shadow. There was much work, and little time for vacation for the family. Spring and summer was spendt toiling in the soil and autum spendt harvesting and making ready for the winter months. Mid winter the family was shacked up in their house, all sleeping in the same livingroom. Mother singing songs for the children and father telling stories from when he was growing up. It was a meager life, and would get worse. One day the local ministrel came to the house together with their uncle. They told the story of how Alexandras father had died in a fatal accident while working on the railroad. Another tragic loss for his mother and it would leave them with no real income. The little they had was not enough to sustain the whole family at the farm. Mother had no chance of keeping the farm, and with sadness sold it off and moved to a sister in Kirovgrad, taking with the youngest children. Alexandra and her older siblings now had to find work themselves, and scattered around the countryside. Her older brothers went to a big farm and managed to get work there as farmhands, doing what they already knew. Alexandra drowe on further south, past Kirovgrad and all the way to the coast together with his uncle to seek work on the railway. His uncle put in good words for her, and the foreman knew of her father and probably felt some pitty for the lass. And thus she started laying tracks together with her uncle. Time flies, and Alexandra finds herself in the hell that is this infectious outbreak. As luck would have it she is not working and is isolated away at a hunting lodge together with her younger brother Steffan. With all then news on the radio and warnings they stay put for days, listening and waiting. When the radio starts being silent they start to lose faith, and wonder if they should forge a path towards a town. They have had enough of sitting still, doing nothing. Heck the warnings, they head for the nearest town. They get near and see makeshift barricades and what looks like military personell in little towers. Strolling towards the barricade they suddenly hear shouting and people pointing weapons at them. Not knowing what was happening Alexandra threw his hands up together with her brother, and slowly walked forward. It turns out this was some kind of safehaven, where people had sought shelter. Alexandra did not believe when they started to inform about the infection that had spread, and how people were attacking eachother in the streets, she had not seen so he refused to believe things were this bad.
