"In an honest service there is thin commons, low wages, and hard labour. In this, plenty and satiety, pleasure and ease, liberty and power; and who would not balance creditor on this side, when all the hazard that is run for it, at worst is only a sour look or two at choking? No, a merry life and a short one shall be my motto."
―Bartholomew Roberts

Background

Born in the outskirts of London to a poor tradesman, Alexander yearned for something more from life. An early interest in the sea eventually gained him place on a private ship sailing for the Caribbean with a Letter of Marque and grand interest in prized vessels sailing the Spanish Main.


After a few years aboard the Jackrabbit, on a night of much carousing, Alexander was embraced unwittingly. His sire left him and he had to make his way, learning to understand his new hunger as well as the gifts and failings of his new life for himself. He traveled on a smugglers ship from Curacao to the northern coast of South America, migrated from city to city he moved west and north, traveling inland only when absolutely necessary.


During his journeys, nearly all contact made with other kindred proved unwise. Often they were twisted and vicious creatures that had turned against their humanity in the most disturbing and damning of ways. Xander, as he now referred to himself, took it upon himself to end the lives of these damned souls. Eventually allying with the Camarilla against the Sabbat, Xander fought alongside others like himself to help liberate the western territories.


During these reclamation wars, Xander proved himself an exceptional combatant. These exploits led him to be known as "The Burning Fist" in certain circles. He now resides in and around the Monterey peninsula.
