Alex was the former wood carrier for the estate of White Hill.
Two months after the Tsurani occupation of the estate, he smirked at one of the soldiers. He was almost killed, saved only by Hamish's instructions to lay still. His injuries prevented him from carrying wood, so Dirk fulfilled his duties that night. To prevent further beatings, Alex began cutting the wood while Dirk delivered it from that point on. Alex was killed by Drogen during a late night murder of all the servants at the estate.
