Full Name: Alexander Morrison White
Name Meaning: "defender of men" | "son of the servant of Mary" | someone who has white hair or is unnaturally pale
Nicknames: Most commonly, Alex, though his birth mother called him Lexi.
Birthdate: June 29th
Rank: Transfer Initiate
Previous Faction: Factionless, Abnegation
Aptitude Test Result: Dauntless
Appearance: Alex is a small looking boy, and very young appearing. He's definitely not the post intimidating of the transfer initiates. His most prominent feature his probably his dark, curly hair. It's medium length and rather wild, by the time he was about eleven his adoptive mother gave up on trying to tame it since it looked rather awkward in between haircuts, despite the norm among the Abnegate to have their hair kept short. Its dark color stands out against his pale skin, making it much more noticeable. If you saw Alex shirtless you would get a much more detailed look at his smaller body. You'd notice the way his ribcage is slightly apparent; it's not because of a lack of food or physical activity or anything, but it's rather a result of a high metabolism and genetics. His arms, back, and face are covered in freckles, the little flecks becoming most apparent when he's been outside a lot. His body is covered in scrapes, scratches, and tiny scars from school fights, falling, childhood, and run-ins with the more agressive factionless.
Height & Weight: 5'7, 123 lbs.
Body Modifications: None that were willingly recieved. He's covered in small scars, and he has one long one that reaches from just below the "armpit" of his elbow, down his forearm, and a little bit onto his palm.
Physical Disabilities: n/a - prone to nosebleeds?
Faceclaim: Finn Wolfhard; subject to change if I can find a better one
Personality: At first, Alex seems quiet. He doesn't talk very much for the first few moments you know him, though that quickly goes away. He's not shy, or anything, he stays quiet to size you up, recognize any apparent behavioral patterns, and decide whether he likes you or not. It's nothing personal, really, but it's a habit that he developed. He doesn't fit in well with the Abnegation, where he was mostly raised, being very feisty, opinionated, and impulsive. He did adopt the idea to give charity to those who need it, but his drive for survival and to get what he wants is very high. He's always been highly motivated, working hard to achieve his goals constantly. Usually he'd do anything to get there, though he he was raised to have a strong sense of morality and refuses to sacrifice those he truly loves. Though, those people are few in number. He's here hard, not easy to shake or scare. For the sake of himself, he's become a good secret keep and liar. He tends to bottle up his more intense emotions, making him seem a little apathetic at times, but eventually he builds up and it makes him susceptible to having random break downs caused by seemingly nothing. He hates showing vulnerability, and doesn't show his more soft, caring, animal-loving side to most of the world. However, he does at random pick people he wants to be friends with and would do anything for them. Often times, early into the relationship, he follows then around like a lost puppy until they finally take him. He's very smart, but his judgment can be easily clouded by very strong emotions and his general impulsiveness. He can sometimes be somewhat arrogant, but he doesn't forget his humble beginnings.
Alex isn't a wuss. He's rather adventurous, having an active imagination and always being willing to try new things. This can lead him to be a bit of a thrill seeker, though when he runs off on his own usually it's without warning. Like said before, he's quiet but still talks plenty. He often times takes off by himself without saying anything to anyone, disappearing behind their backs and without a word. Part of it's because he automatically assumes everyone gets what he's trying to do and will follow suit. Usually, it just ends with him some place really high up and by himself. Honestly? Alexander is still just a kid. He's still learning and growing as a person. He finds joy in some of the dumbest thing, and he's still a free spirit who will probably live to regret his choices later in life. He still smiles and laughs a lot, and is very much young at heart.
Positive Traits: Smart, analytical, brave, fierce, free-spirited, has a strong sense of where he came from, humble at times, hard-working, ambitious, highly motivated, difficult to scare or shake, strong sense of morality, adventurous, imaginative, strong-willed, young at heart. Very loyal.
Negative Traits: Ambitious, impulsive, opinionated, can be a little apathetic, somewhat arrogant, a good liar and secret keeper, bottles his intense emotions, has random emotional break downs, mostly distrusting, runs off on his own, oblivious, lets loyalty get the best of him, somewhat childish, walls himself off from most. Picky.

Backstory: Alexander was born to a factionless couple, his mother being a failed Dauntless initiate and his father a runaway from Abnegation. His father, Milo, had planned to leave the city when he ran away, but instead found refuge with the masses of the factionless. When Emile joined the ranks, the two fell quickly in love and got married by the time they were 17. They had Alex shortly after. They raised Alexander for as long as they could, and managed to keep him alive and well for about 5 years, when they realized how awful it was for the poor boy to be living with them. They loved their son so much, but Emile insisted that they give him up and give him a better life. Otherwise, he'd go cold, hungry, or be attacked by a fellow factionless. Milo finally agreed and they turned to Ryan and Felicity, a couple within the Abnegation.
When Milo had left home, he caused a lot of trouble, but helped one of his friends, Ryan, long the way. Ryan had made Milo promise that if he needed anything, that he come to him. And so he did. Late at night, while Olivia was about 10, they talked to the couple and begged them to adopt and take in poor baby Alex. Eventually, they agreed and came up with a story for them to tell curious neighbors about. A few days later, they legally adopted him and put his parents' surname as his middle. For his first few years with the Whites, Alex was confined mainly to the house, only really leaving to go to school or maybe play in the back yard. He knew the truth about his parents, as he could still remember them, and frequently asked if he could see his "other momma". When he was about seven, they caved. They took him to see Emile and Milo at least once a month, and more frequently when he was a little older. By the time he was about ten, he was allowed to go when he wanted, as long as he was home before dark.
Between his visits, he gained quite the reputation among the factionless. He would bring what food he had scavenged for his parents and their friends, between small things he could take from the pantry without being noticed and scraps from his lunch, he was able to help them at least a little. It was part of a routine. The factionless would reward him by teaching him what they learned before the majority of them had dropped out of dauntless and what they had learned on the streets. They taught him how to fight, steal, and give to those who needed it. It became useful when he had run-ins with the more aggressive, which eventually resulted in his scar and the other small ones he had collected. His birth father later ended up dying of a sickness he'd some how contracted, leaving Alex to do his best to take care of his mother. She's what drove him to choose dauntless.
