Came from Boise Idaho to the marine corps at 18, made his way up through the ranks into an officer positon. When he finally got there, the outbreak struck and he was flown in from Georgia to deal with it. When he got to chernaurus, he had a time posting up and trying to find out what happened. His brother got lost and his Sgt killed himself. Alex found himself stuck in Cherno looting for food and trying to find other survivors around him. He had expended all his gear trying to find his brother a few days prior. The way Alex found his brother was not appealing. He had turned because of a bite from the infected. Alex had to put him down like a sick dog and burnt the body along with Mavericks.
