Alexander BriggsRank / Occupation:
Standing at 78kg and 186cm (6’1” / 171 lbs), Alexander’s toned frame is more fast than powerful. His shaggy hair and scruffy attempt at a beard make for a sharp contrast to his expensive, immaculately maintained equipment. His blue eyes shine with a dark sense of humour and careful calculation, giving some forewarning about his rakish character. Personality:
Confident to the point of arrogance, Alexander is occasionally a little lax with the rules but nevertheless delivers results that accord with Roht’s high standards. He has a laidback and friendly demeanour, though he makes no secrets about his finely honed sense of self-preservation: when things go wrong, Alex can be relied upon to look after himself and nobody else. Background Information and History:
Born to a large but wealthy family, Alexander was afforded access to many opportunities… and even more vices. Despite attaining accreditation at a prestigious university, the early stages of his professional development were hobbled by a brief struggle with stimulant addiction and other lifestyle drugs. Luckily there was plenty of work following the devastation of the Federation Wars, and Alexander’s faltering start proved to be no barrier to corporate employment.
What started as a knack for modular construction then became his saving grace, and he eventually found himself specialising in rapid assembly and emergency repairs. His big break came when Roht Industries contracted him and a few others to salvage a derelict freighter that was at risk of drifting into a nearby planet’s atmosphere. However, rather than conducting a quick ‘smash and grab’ to reclaim the ship’s most valuable components, Alexander invested his personal funds (well, technically his family’s) to bring a few extra supplies and managed to jury-rig the ship for one last journey back home, bringing the whole thing back largely intact. Pleased with the unexpected returns on the operation, Roht Industries then offered him a permanent position as reward.
Now working as part of Roht Industry’s ‘risk management’ team, Alexander has already accrued a short but impressive list of engineering triumphs ranging from the successful containment of chemical spills to rapid fortification projects for threatened outposts.
His quick hands and even faster wits have served him well, saving the day (and more importantly his own skin) on more than one occasion. Whether it’s a reactor meltdown or haywire weapon systems, if anyone can avert an engineering crisis, it’s Alexander Briggs. If nobody
can avert it though, he’ll probably be the first to the escape hatch.
