Name: Alexander James, Alex Bloodfang (as he calls himself in his Worgen form to 'add some diversity' to his character . . . )
Languages: Gilnean, Common
Personality: Alexander is a headstrong, impulsive and arrogant person. He has little patience but a lot of determination. He is a hard-worker, and believes a half-done job is never good enough. Being a mercenary, he loves gold and, for being so young, has a very, very large amount of it. He normally spends most of it on new weapons, armour, gadgets and other useful items that he finds usefulness in. He rarely smiles and is a very hard character. If you can make him laugh or even give a half-grin, then he considers you a very close friend. Part of the reason why he is so cold is he is still young, and still growing and maturing. He is both angered and excited by this proccess - Mainly angry because of how long it's taking.
Likes/Dislikes: He loves training, swordplay and honing his skills at stalking/sneaking around. Because of this, he can be easily tempted to steal things (then again, being a rogue, he often does anyway). He dislikes being proven wrong, and normally loses his temper easily when this happens. He hates things not being done his way, and being ignored. He also hates people that fool around during missions or work.
Appearance: Alexander, in his human form, stands a monstrous seven feet tall. He has long, shaggy, midnight-black hair, and has a very powerful build. He has a broad chest and arms, and is extremely agile. Because of the amount of time he pours in to training and exercising, he is very fit and is well-conditioned. His forearms are marked with fading scars, and across his left cheek is a vicious, three-clawed scar. He is normally wearing black, well-tooled leather armour trimmed with crimson, a ragged black cloak with a hood, and many sheaths and hidden weapons, depending on what he's chosen to use. His eyes are dark, but glow a soft orange around the pupils.
In his worgen form, he stands nine feet tall, giving him an even bigger disadvantage when trying to stalk in this form. The scars that mark his arms and face in his human form accompany him while he is transformed, as does the leather armour. His fur is midnight-black, and his eyes are a deep orange, glowing brightly. His claws are long, razor sharp and honed, adding another deadly weapon to his arsenal while transformed. In this form, he is just as - if not more - muscular and lean than he is when not transformed.
Strengths/Weaknesses: Alexander is an interesting character, with a set of interesting strengths and weaknesses. I'll start with weaknesses, so it's easier to understand his strengths.
Alexander's biggest weakness is that, because of his size, stalking and sneaking are rather difficult and awkward. Though he is a rogue, and naturally a good stalker, his size makes him an easy target. Thus, he has more leaned towards a more open-combat style of play, working on his stalking techniques in the past-time. Because of his short patience and easily-heated temper, he can be tempted in to doing rash things, and likes to find trouble, thus he is almost always fighting against uneven odds.
His strengths are that, because he has traiend so much with weapons, he is skilled with almost every light and medium type of weapon. He favours swords and daggers, but occasionally can be seen wielding axes and/or maces - But rarely. He is also a skilled engineer, and can brew almost thirty poisons - many of them he has created with his own experimenting - as well as being a ferocious fighter in his bestial form. He is exceptionally skilled at knife-throwing, and is an experienced marksman, meaning he can, when required, use a crossbow or bow effectively.
Alexander was born nine years after the construction of the Greymane Wall, and for the first while of his life, seclusion was all he'd ever known. His father, an expert tracker and bladesman, had the foresight to train his son, teaching him all he knew. Alexadner had been of normal height since his birth, but when he reached the age of three, he'd begun to grow much more quickly, confusing both his mother and father. It was not long before he was a master with numerous weapons and styles of fighting, as well as stalking and tracking. During this time, he met another Gilnean named Maysonn, who had inherited his mother's talents regarding a bow and arrow, as well as crossbows, to a degree. Alexander took up training with his new friend, who was four years his elder, adding even more weapon skills to his arsenal.
By the time he'd reached age fourteen, he had begun to grow restless and curious. He'd been closed off inside Gilneas all his life, and his young, adventurous spirit had grown along with him. His mother had passed on almost four years before; his father had slowed down Alex's training, but continued to watch over his son carefully. Fortunately, Maysonn shared his restlessness, and the two began exploring more of Gilneas and its surrounding areas, biding time. Time passed, and little occurred until Deathwing's return . . .
When the worgen struck again, and the Greymane Wall had shattered due to the recent Cataclysm, Maysonn and Alex were among the first to stand up to defend their home. They fought relentlessly, and it was only now, tested in combat, that he realized his skills regarding stalking and stealth were greatly hindered due to his unusual size. His strength and endurance were unhindered, and so he reduced the amount he tried to ambush his prey, instead gunning for a more warrior-like approach to combat. Equipping himself with two shortswords, a crossbow and numerous throwing knives, Alex found himself at a greater advantage with this method.
During a particular skirmish, both he and Maysonn acquired a wound from a renegade worgen. While Alex survived his, Maysonn became distracted by his, and was torn apart by three more that ambushed them. Saddened and enraged by the loss of his friend, Alexander joined King Genn Greymane and his stand against the worgen. However, eventually the wound acquired transformed him into the very thing he fought.
Being captured by Lord Godfrey, an advisor to King Greymane and an ally to Gilneas, he underwent numerous interrogations before he was finally given a conjured potion that restored some of his humanity. As time passed, and he learned more of his new 'curse,' and he convinced himself that the then-invading Horde were the true enemy, he finally began to regain his humanity, and control over his feral, bestial side.
After the fight for Gilneas ended, and Liam Greymane, son to Genn Greymane fell to the Banshee Queen, Sylvanas Windrunner, he ventured off on his own. He continued to hone his skills, as he was seperated from his father during the fight for Gilneas. Yet still his size continued to vex him, no matter how hard he trained. He realized that his only way to skip around it, was to continue down the path he'd taken before.
Needing gold to live off of, Alexander instantly took up the career of mercenary work, quickly accumulating large amounts of gold due to his speed and efficiency at his work. Because he'd never learned any other languages, conversing with other races became a difficult obstacle. Finding jobs was difficult, when when he did, it was worth the trouble.
During one job however, he found himself on the run. His task? To assassinate one sin'dorei within Fairbreeze Village, deep in Quel'Thalas. He'd never travelled to the elven homeland before, and was in awe at its beauty. It was short-lived however, and he turned his mind back to the job at hand. However, the job went haywire after he was caught, the elf's blood coating his hands and blade. Now, he has found himself a fugitive, wanted and hated by many sin'dorei for his murder. One such sin'dorei, a female hunter, hates him with a fierce passion, and has dedicated what resources she has left to find him.

((Was kind of hurried, but, hey, when I'm hard-pressed to find time, I try and make do. At least he has something now, lol.))
