      APPEARANCE:

        ♦ Hair: Pitch black, straight, usually cut somewhat short and kept neat

        ♦ Eyes: Deep brown, but almost as dark as his hair

        ♦ Build: Thin and lean, suited for agility, but with some muscle, too

        ♦ Height/Weight: 179 cm / 59.2 kg

        ♦ Voice: Deep

        ♦ Style: In general, Alex's dress style is simple and functional. Keeping
        up with trends is beyond his interest. He prefers casual and comfortable
        to formal.

        ♦ General Description: The four most commonly-used words to describe
        Alex would be tall, dark, handsome, and mysterious. Alex's appearance
        is simple, clean, and well-kept, but reserved. There is not much that to
        read about him simply by observing his appearance. Yet, many say that
        he holds a sort of princely charm. When he smiles, he just gives a small
        hint that one might be there. He moves with such grace and balance that
        he sometimes seems to just glide. When he looks at you, it's almost like
        he knows a secret about you, or as though his eyes are peering right into
        your soul. Looking back at him for his secrets is futile though, since he
        gives nothing up. Alex can command the attention of the room, or he can
        be as anonymous as the shadow in the corner.

DISPOSITION:

♦ Likes: Nighttime walks, dogs, the rain, music, books, autumn, cool breezes
♦ Dislikes: Crowds, dirty surroundings, loud noises, ignorance, getting help
♦ Fears: Losing people close to him, trusting the wrong person, heights
♦ Habits: Rubbing his hands, tapping his fingers, cracking his knuckles

♦ General Personality: This young man's personality reflects the manner in which he was raised: like the son of a wealthy lord or noble. Alexander, or Alex, as most call him, does not give off the vibe of being the son of an international crime lord. Instead, he radiates the aura of a well-educated, modest, young man of the wealthy class, and most who run into him without any background knowledge of him assume just as much. Alex commands the respect of most, even many of his father's own henchmen. He's soft-spoken, but people listen. He has a level head on his shoulders and is the type who prefers to listen and watch rather than to speak and be heard. The louder one speaks, the less they hear, and hearing can be everything. Sometimes he is mistaken as being apathetic, for he almost never shows any sort of emotional response. Anger, sadness, pain, and even happiness, surprise, or joy seem to hide under a mask of calm, thoughtful neutrality. Very rarely does he allow his emotions to show through. This is because Alex was trained not to show his emotions. To show emotion is to reveal weakness, and in the world that he was raised to thrive in, weaknesses can mean death. When he shows emotion, he's not verbal. Instead, he uses small gestures and body language to express himself, such as what he does when he is in love with someone. Alex is the classic romantic, the type to open doors for the lady, pull out her chair, or give her his jacket for the cold or the rain. He is just as wary of who he trusts and lets into his life as he is of showing emotion. The people he trusts are people whose hands he would trust his life with. Overall, this man of mystery likes his secrets, and he shares them only with those he deems worthy.

        HISTORY:
          Alexander Long was born Long Xinhui in Haidian District, Beijing, China. As the only child of Long Jiangmin, also known as Michael Long, due to China's one-birth policy that was still instated at the time, Xinhui was hand-raised by his father. He never knew his mother; he never got to meet her, as best he can recall in his memory, and his father made a point to never mention her. Xinhui quickly learned better than to ask after the mysterious woman. Instead, Jiangmin made sure his son focused on his studies. He began tutoring Xinhui at the early age of four. He then attended private schools as soon as he was old enough. Alongside his studies, he was also instructed in the martial arts of wushu and shaolin, traditional dance, fencing, piano, and calligraphy. In short, he had the instruction of a modern noble's child. When he reached the age of ten, Xinhui and his father moved to America, for reasons he only knew as "work-related," where he continued his private schooling. Both father and son began to go by their English names. Xinhui became known as Alexander, or Alex. As he grew older, his father began to slowly reveal to him the true nature of his job and the real reason they came to Larkan City. Alex learned of the history of his father's organization, his father's role in it, and its trade. It became clear that Alex was being groomed with the expectation that he would take over for his father once Michael retired. He went along with it without question, as he had become accustomed to doing, but always with a small shadow of hesitation. He had been born and raised into this unwittingly, but the skills he acquired could also be applied in other places. At the age of twenty-one, Alex graduated from the University of Cambridge with a degree in business. He returned to Larkan, where he now holds a high administrative position in his father's company. Although he is still pushed toward the destiny his father always intended for him, he secretly holds back as he plays around with the idea of choosing his own path.
