|Family (or Creators):||Sydney “Syd” Burning Sr. (Father, 50), Bill Burning (Uncle, 48), Erika Aoi (Burning) (Mother, 47), Sydney Burning Jr. (Big Brother, 29), Vince Burning (Big Brother, 27), Ken Burning (Little Brother, 18)|
|Bra Size:||36-F (32-41-34)|
Build and Skin Color: Alex is a knockout tomboy, with lots of curves. Though her muscles are well built and her waist slim, the fat on her chest simply won't vanish, leaving her with a very large chest and making her grow with slightly larger hips to balance that weight. Her skin is slightly on the pale side, due to the inability to tan very well.
Facial Features and Eye Color: Alex has expressive, bright green eyes which are possibly her face's fest feature. Her face is smooth and feminine enough to be considered attractive, but is capable of expressing her emotions with surprising clarity and intensity when needed.
Hair Color and Style: Alex' hair is brown and somewhat swept back from her years of airbike enthusiasm. She likes it, and does style it to a degree, but mostly it is simply how her hair is trained to grow.
Distinguishing Features: The things most would remember most distinguishing about Alex are her breasts and buttocks, but getting past her curves would attract one straight to her expressive eyes. She has no tattoos or marks on her body.
Flavor: Vanilla with a light tinge of Cinnamon.
Personality: Alex is fun-loving and somewhat rebellious, due to the sheltered life she led on Yamatai in contrast to her earlier life on Nepleslia. Air and Starbikes are things she has a love of, as well as money and material things (like many Nepleslians). She likes to thrill-seek, sometimes going to other worlds and trying out their more extreme sports. She's also known to salvage, looking for fun things as well as for money. She also enjoys pleasure, sometimes indulging in more private pursuits. She's not above sparring with others either, the girl having learned different types of physical combat from her father and brothers. During the time she was sheltered by her mother, she used her brains more than her brawn and took up Engineering.
This uninhibited tomboy did inherit a gentle and caring side from her mother, but only those she is close to really get to see it for any great length of time. In spite of her love of thrills and money, friendship is valuable to her perhaps even more so. She is especially close to her younger brother, toward whom she is very strongly defensive, as well as her father.
Alex was born the third of four children on Nepleslia in early YE 11 to the Nepleslian Sydney Burning Sr and the Geshrin Erika Burning(who had fled to Nepleslia after the plague in YE 08). Her father was so convinced he had the Super-Y Chromosome that he had already named his third child and signed her birth certificate when she was born, much to the dismay of her mother. Fortunately the name was semi-gender neutral and Alex likes it well enough – though her mother took to calling her Alexis.
Alex' youth was spent on her homeworld of Nepleslia, absorbed in airbike races, shoot'em up video games, roughhousing with her older brothers, and going to school. Since her father was a soldier and later an Officer, she lived relatively well – though the tomboy refused to be as jaded and protected as most girls. She learned some Engineering at this time, and was aware of the terminology and general operation of Airbikes by the time she was ten. She often helped her Uncle Bill in his Bike Shop when she didn't feel like going home to her strict mother.
She earned her scrapes and bruises in her youth, if not from her brothers, then her classmates. While her father would just laugh and enjoy that she was tough, and even help teach her to fight, her Geshrin mother strongly disliked this attitude. After Syd Sr. became an officer and both of his elder sons followed him into the military, Erika finally had it with Nepleslia and took the 15-year-old Alex and her younger brother Ken to Yamatai.
Alex liked Yamatai well enough, and actually had friends there, but she DID hate living with her mother. Being introduced and known as Alexis to everyone, being forced to wear more traditional clothing and dresses, watching her mother's cold attitude toward Ken…these things made Alex' blood boil. Alex' life on Yamatai was one of forced restraint as her mother tried to shape her into “A proper Geshrin lady” with kimonos, flower arranging, and other such things. Alex was permitted the continued study of Engineering, which was the only real avenue of release she had during that time.
Alex was compelled to change over to a Yamataian body at 17, as was Ken (at 12), which their mother justified by telling them stories of the Plague and getting converted to a Yamataian herself. In reality, however, Erika's motives were more to fully change her remaining children into a different cultural and biological identity to prevent them from leaving Yamatai, as the Nepleslians had recently gained independence.
Upon turning 18, however, Alex was flooded with e-mails and messages from the previous three years, and discovered that her mother had intentionally used her status as a minor to prevent her from having any contact with her father. Finding from the e-mails that her mother had not consulted him in her actions and wondering where his children were, Alex made a decision. She left Yamatai with her younger sibling in tow just as her mother had taken her from Nepleslia.
Her brother now in the care of her Uncle Bill and helping out in his airbike shop, she's re-established contact with her father and older brothers, while more or less shunning her mother. She is known to commonly visit Yamatai and Nepleslia both, enjoying the best of both cultures. Her mother's strictness has resulted in a backlash; where Alex is deeply enjoying her freedom and independence as an adult by traveling far and wide, trying new things and pretty much enjoying herself.
Alex has purchased a large capacity shuttle and has taken assorted odd jobs as a salvager and courier. An interesting encounter in Funky City with a Mishhu left her with her free will and mind intact, but Mishhu arousal toxin amplified her existing desires. Whether or not this is permanent remains to be seen, but she befriended Wazu and Harm(actually Uso). The insurance payout which she obtained for being attacked by the Mishuu went to good use, however, used in part to anonymously purchase a Type 30 Mental Transfer and Backup Unit for the use of herself and her brother – who are in Yamataian bodies.
She would eventually start doing courier work for Nepleslia's military, and even provide information to the IPG. She upgraded to a larger ship for this purpose, and resumed earning wealth and traveling around known space. She also opened a salvaging business, selling salvage over Lazarus' public communications system.
In YE 40, she would participate in massive salvage operation alongside Blues Arnoul / Catharsis Black and Yuki Toshiro in the area to the galactic west, and earn a small fortune by salvaging Elysian, NMX, and other vessels.
Alex has a wide array of skills, though she is not a soldier. She is a 'jane of many trades' sort.
When she was on Yamatai in her late teens, Alex' only true freedom allowed by her mother was the further study of Engineering. While it couldn't be considered a military-grade training, Alex has practical knowledge of how various systems work and a fairly logical and analytical mind in troubleshooting or modifying them. Given sufficient time she can accomplish a great deal, especially with propulsion systems.
Alex was both a fan of Airbike/Starbike racing growing up and hung around her uncle's Bike Shop growing up. She was helping maintain and repair equipment even at that time, and her Engineering training on Yamatai only pushed her skills further. While she can fix and maintain many things, she typically uses her skills to push as much power out of airbike engines as possible.
Alex has a standard education in using her own body's enhanced functions, is capable of quickly figuring out most Yamataian and Nepleslian civilian systems, and has experience in piloting Air and Starbikes. She is not yet soldier-grade, but she is capable.
Alex is able to drive many civilian vehicles and can also pilot Air and Starbikes effectively. She is skilled in maintaining and repairing such vehicles as well. The Airbike circuit and the standard Nepleslian Driving test combined have given her respectable training in defensive(and aggressive) driving.
Alex learned how to spar and brawl from her siblings, but actually learned how to fight from her father and her uncle. In this respect, her training is roughly identical or even slightly better than the training a soldier would have had in the mid YE 20s. This was less for any actual military plans than the fact she was a Nepleslian woman who needed to learn to protect herself from any fresh guys who got the wrong idea.
Alex has always been physically fit, though her stamina has gotten a notable boost from her new Yamataian body. While she is capable of using her enhanced functions like her Antigravity, she prefers not to do so while on Nepleslia. Her body's ability to heal and its improved reaction time does, however, help her in Airbike racing.
In the past three years, Alex has gone to many different places and met many different kinds of people. Her training in flower arranging and traditional Yamataian forms of entertaining sometimes comes in handy, but she is also constantly learning more about more private skills.
Alex Burning is currently a Civilian with IPG and SMDIoN ties. Her pay is intermittent.
