Personality & Traits

General Overview Alex is a nice guy, too nice most would say. All the rest of the men and women in the Raiders would give off a dangerous vibe, but not Alex. Some people said he reminded them of Ferdinand the Bull from the children’s story. Alex will fight, but only when he has to, and then he’ll fight well. He enjoyed the training and the skill required to be a SAARC and work alongside Marine Corps Critical Skills Operators, just like he enjoys the training and the skill required to master Filipino martial arts. But he takes no pleasure in having to use that training and those skills, beyond the satisfaction of doing his job well. That’s why he left the Raiders to be a fleet Independent Duty Corpsman. Sure, he’ll have to go on Away Teams, and there will be combat, but most of his day will be spent caring for the sick and the injured.

Alex is a little nervous to start his new job on the Blackhawk. He has history with his new boss. He’s excited to see her again, but at the same time he remembers that she found him irritating and bothersome. That said, Alex isn’t worried too much about the professional side of this new assignment. He was a Special Operations IDC before taking the Fleet IDC course. A lot of that most recent course was review, anyway, and he was handling cases in the field independently as a SAARC for over a decade before coming to the Blackhawk.
Strengths & Weaknesses STRENGTHS:

Combat Experience
Advanced Medical Training (Mid-Level Practitioner)
Filipino Martial Arts (Kali, Kuntao, Dumog, Suntukan/Panantukan)
Cool Under Pressure


Alex is a little to nice. He was never entirely comfortable in the Raiders. He’s technically very good with Filipino Martial Arts, but he doesn’t like hurting people.

Despite being raised by highly intelligent, well educated people, Alex is not as intellectual as he would like. He’s intelligent enough to do what he does and do it well. He’s more than just a pretty face, but he’s no scholar.
Ambitions Making Master Chief, maybe Chief of the Boat, but at the moment he wants to stay in medical. Maybe becoming a Physician Assistant and getting a commission.
Hobbies & Interests Filipino Martial Arts, Jazz, Jazz Fusion, Blues,various other interests
Languages Spoken Fed Standard, Some Tagalog, Some Spanish, smattering of other languages

Personal History Alex was born on Earth in San Francisco in 2354. His mother Catalea was (and still is) a Starfleet Nurse and his father was (and still is) a novelist. In the 2350s, families were not yet permitted on starships, but they were permitted on certain starbases and ‘shore’ assignments, and those are where Alex spent his early childhood. Eventually, families were allowed on starships, and since Alin could do his work practically anywhere, Catalea applied for a starship position. She got one, the first of many and Alin and young Alex went with her.

When he was 16 years old, Alex met a 15 year old Trill named Jayla Kij. Due to an accident, Jayla was joined too early and as a result was, in layman’s terms, a hot mess. However, she was also gorgeous and Alex was a bit smitten.

Now, Alex is a really nice guy. Most would say too nice for his own good. He saw Jayla in pain and struggling and set out to win her heart by cheering her up. Unfortunately, Jayla found Alex and his sweet attempts to make her smile absolutely the most annoying and irritating thing about her situation. That didn’t stop Alex, but it did get him down sometimes. A few years later, Alex enlisted in Starfleet and left Jayla in the aft sensors.

Catalea was a little disappointed that Alex failed to gain entrance into Starfleet Academy, and again when the two civilian universities he’d applied to also rejected him, but in part she blamed Alin and herself. Perhaps they had pushed him too hard, pushed him to apply to schools that he didn’t have even a fair chance of getting into. Catalea admired her son for not letting that stop him from living his life and for choosing a life of service to others.

Alex had spent a lot of time hanging around in Sickbay while growing up. He helped out with patients with anything that didn’t require medical skill. Read to them, fed them, helped them walk around or walk to and from the head. Being the nice guy that he was, helping people made him feel good, so it seemed natural for him to become a corpsman. Things took a turn, though, when he was routed into being a corpsman with the marines. He fought in the final year of the Dominion War and spent an additional year with a conventional Marine platoon. Someone encouraged him to apply to be a Special Amphibious/Aerospace Reconnaissance Corpsman. Alex wondered if he had the killer instinct for that kind of work, but he wanted to challenge himself, so he went for it. He was accepted into the SAARC pipeline in 2376 and completed his training in 2377. He spent the next nine years working with the Marine Raider Regiment on various Marine Special Operations Teams (MSOTS). By that time, while he felt he’d done important work with the Raiders, Alex wanted a change to a position where he spent more time helping and less time hurting. When his promotion to chief came, he attended Senior Enlisted Academy, then went on to Independent Duty Corpsman school. A lot of the education and training he received there was a repeat of what he learned as a SAARC, but he spent more time in clinics at IDC school, which prepared him for working in the fleet. He spent three years on SB73, before being promoted to Senior Chief Hospital Corpsman (HMCS) and being assigned to the USS Black Hawk.
