Alexander was born to farmers living in the Chinese countryside, howver, tragedy struck and both of his parents were killed in a terrible accident. He had no relatives who could raise him, and it was only by luck that he was picked up by a pair of British missionaries who were living in a chapel nearby. He was their only child and was raised throughout his childhood in a strictly Christian manner. He was grateful to his adopted parents (he knew this as is was the only possible reason for their startlingly different looks) and launched himself fully into his belief in God, nothing could possibly shake it so. He was a quiet boy, preferring to study religious texts than make friends, it was this devotion that raised his esteem to his parents greatly, for they thought that if a simple chinese boy could be enlightened to the ideas of Christianity, then their mission was not fruitless.
His education was home-schooled, and he rarely left his home in Henan province, Dengfeng. However, misfortune seemed doomed to follow Alexander, his parents were killed in the Boxer rebellion, and he travelled the province in search of, well, anything. It came when he stumbled upon the Shaolin temple, hidden near his home. It was not in a good state, the constant war that China was in was slowly causing the collapse of the old ways. It was here he confronted the elders in the heart of the temple, for many a day he remained there, debating on the ideas of faith and belief in contrast with the actions modern countries used today. Alexander believed that many of the people had lost faith in what was true. Noone knows exactly what words were exchanged in the heart of the shaolin temple. but when Alexander emerged, he was still wearing his Christian Cross, but was also wearing the robes of a monk and had been accepted as a student in the order.
When the Great War erupted Alexander was graduating from his third discipline in the temple, he was a master at foot-work and fist-fighting, capable of taking on Four armed men at one time. The elders were pleased with his progress. but Alex could feel his calling taking him elsewhere. he left the temple on the eve of war and set out into the heartlands of China. it was here that he made a name for himself. Preaching the core tenets of Christianity whilst protecting the innocent, any innocent. he would be found one day protecting a chinese child from a russian soldeier, and the next day protecting a wounded Japanese man from a chinese mob. For in the eyes of Alexander, all men and women were the same, and should therefore be treated alike. he became known for his inability to die. Guns aimed on him would jam, bullets would miss and shells exploding nearby would somehow do nothing. alexander would not be swayed from his mission, and there was no force on earth that could prevent his voice from being heard. The politics of the War meant little to him. He had set his goal on helping China out of her dark days and the restoration of it into a stable country. He was solitary and travelled mainly alone, spreading his voice, his beliefs were a mix of Shaolin Buddhism and Christianity, he advocated peace above all, but did not refrain from force should he believe the cause was right.
