a character in “Hell in the Trenches: The Landship”, as played by Irish Wolf


Alex is an unimposing man in his late thirties, Standing around five feet and eight inches tall. His body build is slight, from his entire life on war rations and most of his army life spend on a general's staff, rather then the front lines. He's rather scholarly, from the pair of wire spectacles perched on his nose to the educated way he speaks. His voice is rather low and he wheezes softly, due to the fact that he swallowed gas during the few months he spend on the front. His black hair is trimmed short and combed back. A matching, waxed moustache covers the top of his upper lip. He always wears a full uniform, which never seems to dirty or wrinkled but like any officer, he doesn't carry an gear other then his M2960 revolver. He also doesn't wear a steel helmet but rather a stiff peaked cap.


Alex is a rather quiet person, preferring to work in the background with piles of field reports. This is the first time he had been placed in direct command of anything larger then a company of clerks.


M2960 Revolver
Twenty-four rounds of .46 ammunition
Metal flask


Alex was born the youngest son a wealthy banker, who worked for one of the largest independent banks left in the Confederacy and who was supplying the government with war loans. Where his father couldn't buy all of his sons (just his oldest) out of military, he did manage to get them commissioned as officers. While growing up, he was tutored by some of the best teachers available and lived very well, considering the war and it's shortages. Upon entering the army at the mandatory age of sixteen, Alex was made a second lieutenant in the Duke of Worolia Own, Nineteenth Regiment of Foot.

Before he had even made a year on the front, Alex was caught in a gas attack. While he was able to get both his gas mask on and he was able to get into a bunk, he did breath in some of the terrible, yellow-brown mustard gas and it got into his tunic. His skin and lungs blistered, sending the young man back to the hospital. It was there, while he was recovering, that he met Richard Knight, who was a brigadier at the time. For some reason (Richard claim it was the spark of intelligence that burned through the pain in his eyes), the brigadier had Alex transferred to his own staff. For the next twenty years, he would help the general, slowly being promoted to the rank of major.

When the Landship was nearing completion, Richard was struck down with illness. With no other officer willing to risk his or her career on the faulty of the ironmongery, Alex volunteered to command the thing. The King was impressed enough to commission him as the Colonel of the newly established Royal Armor Regiment.

So begins...
