Alexander Summers

That which does not kill you has made a tactical error.

0 · 385 views · located in The Detroit Facilities

a character in “The Unseen World: MCU Archives”, originally authored by Absenthia, as played by Alexander_Summers

Description


Name: Alexander of Crete
Alias(es): Alexander Summers, Lex
Date of Birth (DOB): August 10th, <CLASSIFIED/>
Race or Species: Human
Height: 5'3"
Eyes: Hazel
Hair: Brown
Physical Description: Short in stature, but wiry.

Family
Dawson Summers - Son
Caitlyn Summers - Wife, deceased

Associates
Sir William McBride - Councilor, deceased
Catherine Dumitrescu - Council Warden
William Zarok Jr - Nephew of Catherine Dumitrescu, Son of Lilly Zarok
Lilly Zarok
Brandon Hammerstein - Nephew of Catherine Dumitrescu

Abilities
While Alexander does not possess any abilities outside those of a normal human, he is considered to be immortal. This has in the past worked to both his advantage and disadvantage.



Alexander's background is fairly cut and dry. A soldier of fortune, he has fought in many wars, conflicts, and spent his life doing the only thing he knew how. Once MCU found him, around WWII, he was highly encouraged to join, especially after an agent discovered his particular talents.
Currently Alexander serves on the Unseen Council in the former seat of Sir William McBride, only occasionally meddling when needed.

So begins...

Alexander Summers's Story

Alexander was present for yet another annoying round of political banter and posturing that was a council meeting. Todays topic of discussion; what to do about the Dallas office. "I have a novel idea, how about instead of playing political posturing and games of chance with the lives of our agents, how about we just give them an actual working budget, so they can have proper equipment?" His tone was dry, there was no particular expression of emotion in his tone. He hadn't been the same since Sir William had died and claimed him as his heir to council responsibilities The battle with the Titan Volcanus had taken a lot out of him.

"Why are you even here Summers? You are here as a courtesy to a fallen member. What you have to say is of little merit or concern. Less so given you were placed on the council to a traitor to the Sealie Fae court. Sir William McBride murdered Lord Oberon in unjustified cold blood." Alexander would normally have just responded with a snarky comment or shrugged it off. But today was not a day to piss him off by speaking poorly of a friend who passed beyond the veil. With alarming speed the Fae who spoke against Sir William found him self up suspended by the neck and the tip of Alexander's gladiolus pressed against his throat.

"I will say this one time and one time only you pointy eared peon. Say what you want about me, my mother, even my favorite dog. But if you ever speak poorly of Sir William McBride, out of Victoria by Callenth of Arganon again... I may not be allowed to kill you, but the council rules are some what fuzzy about the removing of your tongue and then making you eat it."

An uneasy silence swept over the council chambers, as no one moved. Alexander let the taller man slump back to the floor and he turned walking out of the council chambers. He wouldn't do any good here and he needed to stretch his legs any ways.

June sat there cringing as she watched the spectacle Alexander had just made of himself. Clearing her throat she looked around at the various other stunned members of the Council. "Well, next time... perhaps you shouldn't goad him so badly, Tarrenfall." She remarked dryly. What else did the poor man think he was going to get? One of Alexander's trademark rude responses?

So many of them were still having trouble processing the demise of Councilor McBride, and the events that had surrounded it; some of them more than others. "But, lets finish things up." She continued looking around at the faces of the others. "He's right, we need to pass a motion to fund Dallas more. If we can't agree, we're going to be here awhile."

"Agreed. And as a reminder Tarrenfall, Summers was fond of McBride. Try to keep your mouth shut about the former Councilor, regardless of feelings." Klein drawled, clearly unimpressed with the scene. Really, insulting someone who was deceased, regardless of what they had done, was a sign that Tarrenfall should, perhaps, not be on the council.

"I have read the reports coming out of Dallas. More funding is certainly necessary, under the circumstances." Despite his distaste for Dumitrescu, and that Dallas was viewed as a punishment office, of sorts, he could see the need for funding. "I believe Summers has made his vote clear on the issue. We've already had to send more personnel to contain a coven of necromancers. Given the history of the Unseen in the area, it is astonishing that funding hasn't been approved before this."

Alexander didn't take long to go strait threw the Aegis portal near the exit of the council and right out threw the full sized body mirror in the long forgotten corner of Catherine's office right next to the fire place. He coughed a little bit because he got a big old cloud of dust right in the face as he stepped through. "By Athena's owl and shield don't you ever dust that thing woman?" He asked as he brushed him self off. Looking up at the gathering of agents he blinked in a staggering nature. "and of course I walk right into a field agent meeting. If this isn't just the text book definition of awkward." Alexander was dressed in his usual fair. Blue jeans, a sport jacket, over a polo shirt, dress shoes had long ago given way to comfortable pair of cross fit boots. He was as per usual caring a .38 snub nosed revolver holstered on both ankles A .45 ACP 1943 variant in a holster under both his right and left arms each having two spare magazines on the side of the holsters. Then finally on his left hip a Roman Gladus on his right hip a Viking Francesca a gift from Fryga to symbolize their firmly seated friendship.

Catherine had given Molly assent to go and start a new pot of coffee while she organized her notes. The day that had started out long, just grew longer by the minute as she struggled to figure out how to address their new issue at hand. The police report had been spotty at best, and seemed to lack really any evidence to support their desire in bringing MCU on board; but she had been wrong before.

Glancing up at Rafael, she scowled at the sword firmly attached to his waist. "Are we compensating for something Fisher?" She asked him in an bitter tone, pointing to the sword at his waist. "Last I checked this wasn't 1095 or the crusades." Why did this man insist on strange things such as Russian Roulette and now a sword? Then again, Catherine had to remind herself that none of them would pass a normal department's psych eval. Turning her attention over towards Ezra, she noted that he seemed to have survived last week's adventure with little damage. "I see you survived our adventure Warden Bennet."

"Now that we're all here," Catherine began as she picked up her notes in one hand, and took the remote to the room's projector in the other. "This afternoon I was handed a fax that came in from our friends at the police department. They seem to have had a rash of kidnappings, and murders. While this is fairly normal for the Dallas and Fort Worth metro area, the most unusual thing is it's children." She had been about to switch to the next slide in the projector when she noticed the strange looks on the rest of the faces in the room. "Oh come on, it's not like this isn't normal." Catherine said trying to figure out what exactly was going on.

Molly got back with the pot just in time. With a sighed she poured Catherine a cup, made it to the other's usual specification and set it on the woman's desk, and poured herself one, then set it down, and smiling at the others in the room. The smile dropped as she heard the news. Child murders. That was certainly not normal, in the Mundane or in the Unseen realms.

And then she saw the Councilor. "Councilor Summers." She greeted politely. "Would you like some coffee too? We have enough for everyone." And she knew where Catherine kept her clean cups. It was all too easy to fall into odd habits when around Catherine. Still, she hadn't expected the other there. Ishae had mentioned to make it an extra large pot though, so the other likely had an inkling.

"Well first off ma'am this sword resembles nothing of the barbaric religious zeal of the Crusades. This exact model I have here is from some time in the 14th century. This is a knightly blade made for the slaying of those who wish to do evil. I also have the matching armor set in the back of my car. Paycheck well spent if you ask me." Rafael was speaking with rather fervent zeal. Before turning to Alexander. The sword was also out of the sheath with Rafael admiring the blade.

"I also see the newcomer has come prepared for battle." Rafael looked over as Alexander made his entrance which did not seem to phase him.

"So I take it that we have to slay another Krumpus? Maybe someone summoned a Greater Demon this time. I can't wait to give it a taste of holy steel. I forgot to mention that I was able to get the local Bishop to bless the blade with Holy Water." Rafael looked please with himself as he went back to listening.

Of course the sight of dead children would be a common thing, why had he ever thought otherwise? But Ezra hadn’t been aware how much his face must have escalated at the sight of Councilmember Summers arriving and quickly did his best to get his expression under control. Miss Bronson took over before he could mention the arrival to the other warden. “Good day, Councilor. What brings you here?”, he asked, trying to sound polite and not too curious about the unscheduled visit.
Not an everyday occurrence. And yet somehow still less strange than Paladin Fisher’s antics.
He just hoped that convincing the local bishop had not involved direct use of that blade.

Alexander choked back a laugh when he heard mention of holy water soaked blades. usually lopping off the creatures head was more then sufficient to kill most things, at least until they came back. "Newcomer this one calls me.... cute. Your sword is nice but it looks nothing like the one it was designed off of. It's too...... fancy."

Lex was all too familiar with the blade. Still if battle worthy who was he to tell the guy he shouldn't bloody such a pretty blade. Lex reached out and offered Molly a copper mug with a tin lining. "Two sugars one cream please, and thank you and please call me Alexander... Every one."

The tone was pretty clear he didn't want to acknowledge the existence of the council right now. He was here to escape the politics. His expression was warn. He was a soldier not a politician put him in a good clean fight, or even a dirty one for that matter any day he'd be in his element. He was so angry with Sir William for naming him his seat proxy.

Catherine just raised an eyebrow at Rafael's remark, and stood there biting her tongue. She hoped that the next guy they encountered kidnapped him instead of Brandon, it would be a relief not to have to figure out what brand of insanity she would have to sort out that week. "Last I checked medieval armor wasn't appropriate equipment for officers.." Catherine pointed out testily.

Taking a sip of the coffee Molly had set on the edge of her desk, she made a note to remind Molly that while she appreciated the gesture, she really didn't have to fetch coffee or anything for anyone really; they weren't in the fae courts anymore. Sighing slightly she soldiered on through her notes, messy though they were. The report DPD had given her had been lacking, and she could feel a migraine beginning to try and inch it's way across her temples.

Though currently she was trying to process why and how Alexander was there. Wasn't he supposed to be off with the Council? "Alexander..." Catherine said fighting to keep the edge out of her voice. The entire staff meeting had just been derailed, this was the second time it had happened this month. "Please, have a seat." She added tightening her grip on the projector remote. This had just made everything more complicated.

One day, Molly would get out of the habits court had trained into her. Today was not that day. Tomorrow wasn't looking good either. She had been the equivalent of Catherine's personal equivalent in the courts. She couldn't set that to the side despite wanting to. Deftly, she fixed Alexander's coffee and handed the unusual mug back to him. At least it meant she didn't have to dig out a clean mug from somewhere, even if she hadn't seen a copper mug before. Either way, she sipped her own.

Still, it looked like everything was going off topic. "You mentioned there had been a rash of child murders in Dallas?" Molly tried to bring the meeting back on topic. "While that's unusual, and very sad, what brings it to MCU's table?" They didn't handle every murder in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

Catherine just rolled her eyes and looked up at the ceiling, slowly counting to ten and muttering something under her breath. Today was trying what little patience she had left after speaking with Laura's parents. She had never seen a more resistant pair of people, convinced that things of a spiritual nature were not supernatural, but somehow inherently good every time. 'For the love of god.. I hope I don't have to deal with them agian.' She thought as she tried to reorganize her thoughts.

While she understood the message sent through the phrase from Alexander, she didn't know if she was ready to deal with the chaos associated with Alexander. This was one of the days where she didn't know if she was ready to deal with people even.

"Well that is one opinion, but mostly what I have is a report that's lacking information. What I can tell you," She said as she changed the slide up on the projector. "Is that many of the victims have been under the age of ten, primarily male."

Catherine truly hoped that this wasn't just more of the same from the previous case.

Under the age of ten, primarily male. Molly considered this and frowned. It sounded familiar. Very familiar. Molly looked of the slide and frowned. "That's... I listened to the interview logs of the most recent case. Jung Chu mentioned something about a ritual, and how one of the sacrifices had died for it, but the other was still alive. Do we think it may be related?" Or did she just have the last case on the brain.

The male sacrifice had died, didn't he? Molly tried to recall. She sincerely hoped that wasn't the case of course, but it may be another chance to grab Hanh Dam, if it was. Why was it that they could never catch the sickos before they struck again?

"The armor was also blessed by the bishop. Took awhile to fill up the tub to soak it in though. But I have a full set of holy armor along with sword. I left the shield at home though. But who are we going to use as bait? I think we could dress Molly up to look like a ten year old." Rafael's tone hinted at him being playful now if not irritating.

"If anything I toss this all back in the Jeep and get more guns but that's no fun."

"Not as fun but a shoot out between street clothed agency detectives of some nature and a criminal element is far less likely to raise suspicions, then a medieval or early renaissance armor clad paladin doing battle with a dragon down fifth and main." Wow was this really happening, was Lex actively choosing to adult? It was then that he felt an old familiar presence in his head, telling him he needed to see her after this is over. Focusing his thoughts so Catherine could read them more clearly. 'Sure thing boss, your office after the meeting. I think I still know the way. For the way is the medieval wanna be for real? I swear I'm going to start calling him Lex Jr. He's like me... when I was young and stupid..... and fundamentally broken.' His attention abruptly turned back to the conversation at hand.

"I think while I appreciate your zeal for giving a foe the cold steal, a more subtle approach would be prudent. The veal is still healing after the events of the Titan escape from the Chilean volcano some 20 years ago. People are finally allowing the events that transpired to slip from clear memory and rationalize it for something they can wrap their rational minds around. In short the unseen is starting to become that again, unseen. Lets not destroy the delicate mending that has taken place by resorting to our lesser demons and desire to stab leprechauns for want of our desire to see if they'll spill out lucky charms."

At this point, Ezra was just relieved they hadn’t decided to duel it out, Warden Dumitrescu seemed on edge enough as it was. But the discussion was continuing, too far ahead in the problem at hand.
He listened in silence for a while, finally clearing his throat after Councilor Summers spoke. “I hate to be the one to curb your enthusiasm, however I suggest we wait until the Warden has given us all the details on the case before we talk about taking down suspects we don’t even have so far.” He turned towards the two, propping his arm on the backrest of the chair as he did. While he did agree with the subtle approach, voicing his opinion might just lead to the discussion flaming up again.
Those dead children - if Hahn Dam was involved, his crime had evolved concerningly fast. Or depending on how long the DPD had been holding on to these files, this could have been valuable information.
It seemed more likely another culprit was involved, as much as he wanted Dam to be at fault, or better yet, already behind bars.

The junior officer refused to even acknowledge Rafael's remarks, the asshole. Her as bait! She was taller than him by nearly half a foot, the midget. He'd make a much better ten year old than she would. The tallest individual in the room frowned as she considered the information, but remained quiet for a moment or two.

She'd plan retribution against Fisher later, when she had say, duct tape, a gag, and perhaps access to Brandon who was ridiculously easy to black mail. Besides, surely their team didn't need more than one holy warrior here, and Molly was more than enough, as far as she was concerned. Fisher could go suck eggs.

Which would be difficult once she had duct taped him to the ceiling with a gag in his mouth. But he'd manage, she was sure.

Standing there dumbfounded, Catherine wasn't even sure anyone was listening. "That's enough, next person to derail this meeting will be in serious trouble." It wasn't much of a threat, but then again it had been awhile since she had really had to deal with officers with disciplinary issues. "Fisher, shut up about your god damned armor, you aren't allowed to have it in the field. The goal here isn't to call attention to ourselves." She added, pointing a finger at Rafael, giving him a death glare.

Shooting the same glare at Alexander, she desperately wished for him to stop antognizing the other officers. His brand of crazy she didn't want or need today. Rafael mean while was on a roll, insisting that they dress Molly up as a ten year old, that was laughable on a good day, irritating in extreme on a bad day.

"Now sit down, shut up and put that thing away Fisher, before I decide to use to slit you stem from stern." She said coldly. If he wanted to be a clown, then he needed to go elsewhere; Catherine was not going to tollerate another derailed meeting.

Turning to Ezra, she gave him a slight nod of thanks, "Thank you Warden Bennet. It seems you have your self together, unlike other people here today."

Fisher was officially on her shit list, and wouldn't coming off of it anytime soon.

Since it was part of the job description, he really couldn’t see it as much of a compliment. It also made Ezra feel like a schoolboy again, and remembering the way classmates had seen his behaviour back then, he quietly slid back in his chair, hoping tall Miss Bronson would hide him from the sight of the others. He did give Warden Dumitrescu something between an embarrassed nod and a shrug in return, before speaking up once more. “Miss Bronson raised an interesting point I’m also curious about, are there any signs we might be dealing with necromancy again?”, he asked, voice steady but gentle, hoping the question might help focus everyone again. “Or why did the DPD transfer the case to us?”

Rafael held up his hands in defeat this time. He took his seat and remained quiet as he waited for the others to dish out the details. He was more of the tactical operations officer than anything else a to the why we were doing this. He took over the how they would deal with it.

"Now that we're all behaving like adults..." Catherine said looking at the group with impatience. One more interruption and they would have to make an appointment to go over the case, with her, on her time; and it wouldn't be convenient for any of them. "To answer your question Bennet, DPD sent it over because it's a cold case, but in light of the recent insanity... well they thought it would be better if we handled the case." She said flicking through to the next slide. At least things had calmed down for now, but the headache was

"But after talking to a detective with DPD, it turns out that there has been a new development in the case. Roughly two weeks ago a child was dumped behind a theater in Dallas in a what I'd say is a semi-wooded area." Catherine continued as she shuffled through her notes to find her next point of reference. "But the cause of death is mostly unknown, there were not ligature marks or wounds on the body. However," She added once again flicking through the slides to one that she'd managed DPD to send over. "There were unusual markings on the body, but not like what we tend to expect with rune work."

The slide in question showed a small child's hand with what appeared to be ink or henna on it. "After some research, I believe that this may have something to do with Chakra's or energy points we've yet to encounter on the regular basis."

"The fact that it's only boys being sacrificed is some what suspect to me but that mark on the hand. It's ancient Greek. It's closest representation in modern English is... Duality but the actual translation is a bit more... complex. I have a suspicion but I'll have to talk to a Goddess and see if she has any worshippers in this area. If she does and if they're the ones doing this I don't expect it to be a very happy conversation. She may not like men in general, but she doesn't condone the slaughter of innocence regardless the gender. In the mean time Catherine could you arrange for me to examine the body? There are more... tell tail signs that I need to look for." Lex wasn't trying to agitate people he was trying to point out that the man with the sword was drawing too much attention to him self. Still Catherine said to stop so he stopped.

Talk to a Goddess. Councilors were weird. Did he mean through a medium, like with Ishae? Or prayer? Or was he a medium and it just wasn't near as obvious as it was with Ishae, who definitely played it up. Molly very firmly decided not to ask. "Chakra." She murmured, largely to herself. She considered this some. She'd have to do some research, but it wouldn't be too hard, she hoped. There were libraries she could consult after all, and very little stood between Molly and research. Her hand went to adjust a pair of glasses that were no longer there. They had just been plain glass after all, meant more to distinguish between two 'twins' than anything else.

"If it's Chakra, we can likely rule out Hanh Dam, can't we? He showed no signs of any knowledge of it, and his rune work was effective, but rudimentary. He would have used something else if he knew it." It lacked all finesse and true skill. Molly, meaning of the symbols aside, had not been impressed as she helped break down that scene. There was no finesse, no skill, no understanding of runes displayed at all. Just brute force.

Catherine nodded as she went to the next slide. "I'm sure we can get you in to talk to the coroner and DPD detective on this case." She said as she scribbled herself a reminder in her notes. She could probably pass him off as another Warden or something to that extent, she would however have to ask the current Director about it.

"Honestly Molly, we can't say yes and we can't say no on the linkage between Hanh Dam and this. Just because a person appears to or says one thing, doesn't mean it's something else entirely." Catherine said, answering Molly's question. The unseen could be full of contradictions, falsified information and all other manner of secrets. "But, if no one else has any other comments or questions, I think we're done here." She added eager to leave what felt like a too hot and stuffy room.
