- "Well that was... interesting to say the least"
- — Alexander
Alexander had lived a virtually perfect life up until a certain point, when a cult attempted to kidnap him. Before then, he had lived inside the walls of his home, learning math, reading and how to fight. His family was rich and wealthy. They were also kind, as is Alexander. They often tried to help the poor and wounded soldiers as much as they possibly could. He knew pretty much nothing about the Soul Edge and Soul Calibur, as the topic was banned from his home. All the books about the Swords and events that transpired 17 years ago were locked away in his family's forbidden library. Alexander went along with it, allowing his parents to hire a private teacher so that he did not attend public schools. He was only allowed out of the house when accompanied by his personal servant, and all the places he went were recored and reported to his parents. Then, when Alexander was 13-years-old, his parents adopted a 7-year-old girl named Nirvana.
Alexander was at first surprised by this, as he was given no warning that his parents were going to adopt, but he soon got over this and welcomed the young girl to the family. He and Nirvana got along well enough, although he sometimes overheard talk from his parents about people not liking Nirvana. He couldn't imagine as to why. There were rumors going around that she brought bad-luck and such things.
As Nirvana lived with Alexander's family, Alex learned small things about Soul Edge and Soul Calibur. Things like Nightmare and the former wielder of Soul Calibur, Siegfried. But Nirvana did not know much more about the swords.
A couple of years later, when Alex was 15, a cult attempted to kidnap him. Their reason was unknown, but Alex heard bits and pieced of their conversation and he knew it had to do with Soul Edge. He wasn't exactly why, though....
"Whatever you are looking for in here, you are most definitely not going to find it," Alexander commented lightly as he leaned against a bookshelf, watching his younger sister climb on top of chairs and tables alike to reach the highest shelves. Alex watched as Nirvana struggled to reach a red-sleeved book on the highest shelf. Well at least she was determined. "I have told you before, anything worth reading is in our forbidden library. In case you couldn't quite figure it out, forbidden means we can't go in there." Nirvana regarded Alexander irritably and hopped down from the chair she had on a table. Alex easily caught her and gently set her down on her feet.
"We can go in there," Nirvana said quitely, her golden eyes seeming to darken just a bit in Alexander's perspective. "We musn't tell anyone, is really the case here." Nirvana gave Alex a charming smile.
"If the thought of going behind our parents backs and disobeying their wishes pleases you..." Alex trailed off a grin forming on his lips. "Who am I to hinder your plans? As a matter of fact, I am going to tell you where the keys are located." Alex tells her where the keys are and Nirvana scurries off to find them. Alex laugh as she leaves. His little sister was such a curious one.
He places the books Nirvana took out back on the shelves. He leaves the small library and runs to his room to find Malik sweeping the floor. "Malik! I'm going out," he says. He walks over to his dresser and reaches over it to grab his sword and shield off of the wall. "Don't record it, aka, don't tell mother dearest or my dear father." Malik smirks and nods. Alex runs out of the room and down the hallway and to the steps. He slides down the railing and lands on his feet.
Going through the back door, Alex runs into the woods. He slows to a walk and gazes around. It is sunny and warm. He loved the Spring weather. He continued to pace through the forest when he stops abruptly to stare at someone. A pale, thin woman was sitting in a tree. She looked down and stared back at Alex. What Alex was really staring at, was her strange weapon. It was a circular-looking blade. A pale woman with a circular blade? Why did that sound familiar? She dropped down from the tree and Alex raised his shield and sword. The woman approached him. A short spar broke out but the woman quickly shut it down. "Hold on a second!" she yelled at him and pushed him away. Alex stumbled backwards and paused.
"Who are you?" he asked. The woman brushed herself off.
"I am Snow White. But you can just call me Snow..." With that she leapt into the trees. Alex looked up into the leaves to find her, but she was gone. That was very odd. Her name was Snow White, like in the Fairy Tale?
Alex felt a cold wind blow and he stumbled at its force. He looked around and noticed that it had gotten strangely dark. Suddenly, his eyes landed on a dark, glowing orange shard on the ground. It was a few feet away and he felt strangely hypnotized by it. He sheathed his sword and walked over to it. It seemed to glow even brighter as he approached. A hand reached out and stopped him, and he looked up. "I wouldn't do that, if I were you," a woman's voice said. Alexander looked up to see a brown-haired woman with kind green eyes.
"I... what is it?" Alexander asked her.
"It's a Soul Edge shard," the woman said. "I'm Kisandra, who are you?" Kisandra held out her hand for Alexander to shake.
"I'm Alexander," replied Alex, but he was still curious about this Soul Edge shard...
Alexander is an inexperienced fighter and doesn't like to fight anyway. He is shy around new people and doesn't talk much. The only person he really confides in, is his younger adoptive sister, Nirvana and his personal servant, Malik.
Alexander only uses a Sword and Shield, respectively named after the Angels Michael(Sword) and Raphael(Shield).
The Holy Trinity is Alexander's Critical Edge. He spins and strikes the opponent three times with his sword while being surrounded by a blue aura.
Tranquil Wasteland is Alexander's stage. He finds it peaceful and often goes there along with Snow.
