Alex stands a good 6 feet tall, with an athletic build, a reminder of his service days during his time with the army during World War I. his hair is short blond, and his face is clean shaven, a pair of grey eyes peaking out from under his relaxed eyelids.
Alex was an infantry man during the first world war. It was a rather unpleasent experience for the man, as he lost many friends during the war, and had killed more people then he ever thought he was capable of. Once the war was over, he decided to take what training he had and became a survivalist expert, using what he learned from his time in the trenches to help him allong the way.
Alex is a less then social person, tending to prefer to stay by himself for the most part, though he can be social when he likes and can surprise others with his good humour when he chooses to use it.
Reason for being on the expedition: Alex is on the expedition mainly for the money, though there is a certain appeal for the exploration of the unknown as well. More then anything, he simply doesn't want anybody to die on this trip because they had to settle for some second-rate survivelist.
Supplies that they may be taking besides preset group supplies mentioned above: Alex carries with him at all times his old service .45 handgun and combat knife. Alex also carries with him a scoped rifle, in case there is need to hunt. Finally, Alex is a smoker, so he also has brought both cigarettes and a lighter with fluid.
