Current Revision: Revision
Alexander is ripped, to say the least. He towers over his own teammates by at least more than a foot and has a few issues going through doors because of that.
He wears a white roman attire topped with a sash on his left shoulder, which has his emblem sewn on it. He wears a set of gauntlets, with his left one covering almost half his arm.
He wears a gray hakama and a fauld with his symbol engraved on the center.
Alexander is known for his violent and brash behavior when he was younger. As he grew up, he mellowed down and became less aggressive.
Now, he's more well known for his 'dumb muscle' act. Though quite smart, he hides in a facade that he's just a guy that punches things. He often catches people off guard by demonstrating his knowledge in other fields.
He's very protective of Margarethe. Anyone stupid enough to hurt her will receive the full fury of the giant.
Weapons and Abilities
Alexander usually doesn't need any weapon to fight off a human. But once it comes to the Grimm, his right gauntlet can reveal a blade, allowing him to aim for a vital spot. His left gauntlet is also empowered by a Blue Dust Crystal, giving him access to ice-based Dust attacks.
Collectively, his gauntlets are known as Athánati Vasiliá.
In battle, he uses his massive body to protect his allies as well as smash anything that gets too close. He's strong enough to punch a hole through wood.
His only main weakness is his incredibly slow movements, making him easy to evade.
His Aura is colored brown. His Semblance makes full use of his strength, further amplifying his strong defenses, at the cost of forcing him to stay still.
He learned some very basic swordsmanship skills, but he doesn't have a talent for the sword so he no longer practices.
Alexander was raised in the poorer parts of Vale, being from a family of thugs. His father was a crook who stole Dust and sold them to members of White Fang in order to raise enough money to cure his wife of cancer.
Alex himself was rebellious. He hated his family, his performance in Signal was terrible, he picked fights with other children and eventually went on to grow up as a member of a gang of orphaned children called Macedonia. He rose through the ranks and eventually became their leader.
When he became 12, his father was killed when a deal with White Fang did not go well. Through his mother, he found out the reason his father was skirting the law, and he vowed to change his ways, leaving Macedonia, and beginning to take his classes more seriously. He wanted to finish what his father started, and began to take small side jobs when he doesn't have classes.
He would later meet a passing hermit, who came to Vale to buy Dust for usage in training. As he never used a weapon, he attempted to train with him, forging a simple sword as the hermit required. Initially, he demonstrated some skills in using the sword, but not enough to make him combat worthy. The hermit later recommended that Alex stick with his fists, and to create a set of gauntlets instead.
