Alexandre Ramirez




Nickname(s): N/A

Age: 36

Race: Human

Gender: Male

Organization: Independent

Organization Rank: N/A



Character's Appearance





Alexandre is a reasonably tall man, at 6'4 or 1.9 meters weighing 185 lbs. and toned specifically through a life of violence, for violence. His skin is noticeably more white than that of the Brazilians that he spent most of his life living around as a result of his lineage. Alexandre's eyes are a dark brown color that is almost exactly the same color as his hair which Alexandre takes care to keep relatively short (2-3 inches) whenever possible. Alexandre follows a fairly strict code of looking clean with the exception of his stubble, which he pays attention to only after it couldn't be considered stubble anymore.

In keeping with his code of appearing clean, Alexandre typically wears a high collared grey dress shirt made of a Melange fabric to allow the shirt to move with him, rather than stiffening his movements and hindering the economy of motion he would otherwise have. On top of this shirt, and around his neck, Alexandre wears a red tie. Further on top of his shirt, Alexandre wears a black jacket made of polyethylene fabric with many internal pockets and straps for the use of carrying Alexandre's weapons and ammunition.  His pants are made of a similar material though his pants are black rather than grey. Holding his pants up and acting as the middle of his attire, Alexandre wears a belt made of hemp connected in the center with a silver belt buckle. On his right wrist Alexandre wears a silver Invicta watch, and finally on his feet Alexandre typically wears brown oxford shoes.

Knowing full well that subtlety and deception can be useful, Alexandre would easily be willing to switch his clothes out completely and depending on the situation go in with a completely different set of clothing more suited for combat in line with the pragmatist within Alexandre. However, as his supernatural targets are typically beyond being stopped by a simple vest or modern combat armor, Alexandre elects not to bother weighing himself down and thus does not have a typical combat situation attire.



Personality Information




Alexandre is motivated by his own consistently growing knowledge that a normal human like himself is absolutely powerless against the powers that be in the world, and not only outmatched physically but inferior in nearly every possible way to everything self-aware outside of humans. While these things may not always be true by the effects of artifacts, faith, technological enhancements, even mystical means of augmentation Alexandre is mostly unaware of the effectiveness and application of these things within the arena of the supernatural. Having some idea of his own weakness in the world has created a desperation effect causing Alexandre to dedicate the remainder of his life killing the supernatural and attempting to become more like them. It seems hypocritical and for the most part it is(and he knows it), save that Alexandre only seeks power within the bounds of his humanity and would never go so far as to sacrifice his race for anything.

Greatly influenced by Nietzschean beliefs of his grandfather, Americo Santos (Schmidz/Lothar). Though believing that humanity in it's base form was capable of anything with the right skill, and preparation and perhaps some use of technology to even the playing field. If he were aware of magical artifacts, he would agree that they to could be used for the sake of human power. Alexandre views himself of little worth currently, only able to match up to other humans, and the most unprepared and weak of the occult beings, and having experienced the sheer might of the supernatural knowing his place as simply uncaptured food for the majority of 'above' human species. However, seeing himself this way is only further motivation for him to dedicate his life toward turning the tables on them and achieving the greatest possible levels of being human. In his own mind, viewing the attaining of artifacts and knowledge that would make him greater than even the supernatural monsters as the very purpose of his life. Ultimately this thought is what gives him his killing instinct, believing firmly that it is the duty of everyone to be prepared for anything and death is simply the result of getting into a situation that person was unprepared for. Not caring for what most would consider innocent and instead believing that they deserved to die if they did because they were unable to avoid death.

Having grown up in a place filled with poverty and needless death, Alexandre learned to try and avoid thinking of himself as anything more than a body regardless of any intelligence or skills that he had developed. Alexandre witnessed plenty of people of greater physical and mental ability than he, die in a myriad of ways that their intellect or strength were completely useless to stop. Alexandre views all properties that make up life, such as intelligence as simply tools, only as effective as their user even if the tools themselves are not all equal. Believing that anyone who fails to realize that the only absolute is death and thus anyone who pursues a life that leaves them vulnerable to death in favor of anything else is an absolute waste of life.

Alexandre believes himself to be a very pragmatic man and credits pragmatism as the reason that he survived his own life. Caring none for honor, believing that by limiting your actions to fit an archaic lifestyle based upon limitation is one of the worst mistakes someone could make. Alexandre has no desire for challenges or to be thrown into exciting battles, believing the satisfaction coming from succeeding in a difficult situation is a small price to pay for improving his odds at a longer life. As a result of these things Alexandre sees little point in doing anything that doesn't directly benefit him, and as could be imagined of a person like this, he's usually a selfish asshole. The only exception is a sense of loyalty toward his grandfather Americo Santos for bringing him along and clueing him in, at least in some small way, as to what the world really was/is.

Combatively Alexandre prefers a range of 50-75 meters. Far enough away for most of his weapons to be effective without offering his own head if he were to run into something he could not easily kill. Whenever expecting combat, especially against non-humans, Alexandre acts cautiously and with great care behind all of his moves looking to nullify any advantages he is aware that something could have on him. As could probably be deduced by now, Alexandre is an incredibly paranoid man who's life focus and life's work both force him to the extremes of his paranoia. However, instead of letting himself become insane or spending his life taking great care to avoid danger, he has turned his paranoia productive, in that on an intellectual level he recognizes that his fears give him a list of what to watch out for in any situation. With sufficient willpower, which he has never been lacking, Alexandre turns his fears into caution that he credits his life with as much as he does pragmatism.



Equipment Information




AK-47: The AK-47 is a gas-operated selective-fire assault rifle that has been used commonly across the world. This is the most customized of Alexandre's weapons in that it deviates most from the norm. The first of these is Alexandre's use of extended mags, of which he has four contained near his left side within his jacket, containing 40 rounds compared to the average 30. Additionally Alexandre has added a folding stock to the weapon for improved accuracy and stability.

SIG Sauer P226: A fairly standard handgun in that it is often used as a measure for others. Alexandre has made only one modification to in attaching a M3 light mount. Alexandre uses fifteen round magazines of .375 SIG rounds and carries two of these magazines within a inner pocket of his jacket.

Taurus Judge: Sometimes referred to as "Raging Judge" capable of chambering both .410 bore and .45 Colt rounds. Alexandre's use of the weapon is typically the .410 bore variety and as such he carries only the .410 bore form of ammunition in the form of six shells contained within a region of his jacket similar to where the .357 SIG magazines are held by way of six small straps. The rifling is shallower than normal, giving single-projectile loads less stability than other handguns than while reducing the rapid dispersion of shots from the .410 bore rounds.

M68 Fragmentation Grenade: A spherical grenade containing 6.5 ounces of composition B explosive making up for nearly half of it's weight. Containing a safety clip to prevent to pin from being accidentally pulled as opposed to the M33 variant. Additionally the M68 features an impact fuse causing the grenade to explode three seconds after making contact when the pin is removed. Alexandre carries three of these attached to the rear right of his belt.

Gerber Mark II: A combat knife with a design based on the Roman gladius. A feature of the Mark II is a serrated blade from the hilt up half of the knife's 6.5 inch carbon steel blade. While the blade is heavier than most tactical or combat knives at eight ounces the total length of the knife being 12.75 inch gives an advantage over most other knives. Alexandre typically straps the knife slightly above his left ankle inside of a ballistic nylon sheath.



Character Abilities




Alexandre has been trained and taught much about occultism by Americo in the years that he has spent with him trying to become more knowledgeable and powerful. As a result, Alexandre has a deep understanding of general rituals and activities connecting with various cults and dark beliefs. Alexandre's knowledge of Germanic occultism is the especially high as a result of his mentor's preferences in his own learning and passing on of knowledge.

As a result of Alexandre spending his entire life within memory around firearms on both the receiving and firing end, as well as a significant training period by many ex-military and ex-special forces soldiers and taking part in many assassinations on both gang and political levels Alexandre is an excellent marksman. Constantly put to the test against physically superior and inhuman targets to continue improving, or at least keeping his skills at their sharpest.

Another result of Alexandre's training was learning Hand to Hand combat as well as knife combat. His hand to hand training was mostly focused on Brazilian jiu-jitsu, a martial art in which Alexandre ascended to the rank of second degree black belt during his several years of practice. Similarly to Alexandre's marksmanship he has found knowledge and practical skill in these arts to repeatedly be useful in the field, and as a result his skills have remained sharp despite being originally learned almost a decade before.

Linguistically Alexandre is fluent in Portuguese, and English Portuguese from his time growing up in Brazil where he learned Spanish as well, and English learned as a necessity for doing business on behalf of ADA, further reinforced by his time traveling and having to find a common language with the people he was working with. Alexandre is also capable of speaking German and Spanish reasonably due to some minor language training from Americo and ADA respectively though Alexandre is illiterate in both languages.

Alexandre's paranoia in his constant fear of being attacked and surprised by something already superior to him manifests in his constant scanning and rescanning of everything within his immediate area. Making mental notes of even the most slight of changes and making repeated checks of all his senses all for the purpose of noticing any threats, the moment that they become a threat, though of course this is limited by his own human reflexes. In his youth this was done in very conspicuous ways, though he has since trained himself to avoid looking over his shoulder repeatedly and wandering his eyes' focus everywhere when in conversation, to something of hyperawareness within his sensory perception.



Character Biography



Alexandre was born in Rio de Janiero in April of 1978 to an obese white woman and a malnourished Brazilian man that Alexandre would never meet. His mother was a woman of self indulgence and shame. Someone who always saw food to be the highest priority in life, some kind of animalistic throwback that she was never able to shake. As such when the economy began to go to shit and the terrible effects of hyperinflation in Brazil began to take place Alexandre was given her scraps and she remained obese and out of place. So it was that Alexandre was born and spent the entirety of childhood, becoming increasingly worse off year by year while his mother did everything she could to maintain her comforts. Alexandre was never given such comforts as even the most basic levels of nutrition and as a result he grew to hate his mother.

As he reached his teen years and began to feel naturally rebellious along with his immense hate for his mother he took to the streets of Rio to escape his mother. It was in the streets of Rio that Alexandre learned how to beat people up and steal their small amounts of money to stay alive with his own small pockets of money, not necessarily a new concept to the kid who grew up with his mother eating all of both of their food, but taken to new levels for him. Eventually Alexandre connected with other kids and teens that were doing the same thing and thus a gang was formed. Alexandre 'ran away' from home and lived with his desperate friends into his adulthood before he was called upon by a newly forming organization known as ADA. Rather than being a reference to a hobo the organization was an influential gang mainly working to control Rio through a mix of gang violence and political assassinations. His talents were nurtured within this group and he was trained by ex-military and experienced gangsters in both combat and intrigue. Alexandre learned quickly and well and within a few years he had gained a note-worthy reputation for being a killer. He was paid well and enjoyed a lifestyle blending murder, drugs, and sex into a blurred memory later in his life.

After the initial thrill of his new lifestyle wore down Alexandre went to visit his mother to rub her fat lard face in his successes and remind her of her failings. As fate would have it, he would meet into his grandfather, Americo Santos, who had come to Brazil to do pretty much the same thing. The two met and had pleasant conversation while sharing many laughs at the expense of the fat one. Through the remainder Americo's visit Alexandre and he became friends, Alexandre was amazed and perplexed by how young and healthy his grandfather was despite being as old as he had to be. Pondering it for long after and deciding that either the man was not his grandfather or he had done something to allow for this youthful body regardless of the years. His mother's actions and reactions implied he was indeed her father which left only the supernatural result. Alexandre's curiosity and Americo's amusement of his grandson's hatred of his daughter caused the two to remain in contact, albeit infrequently after their meeting.

Several years later Alexandre found himself preparing to kill a particularly uncooperative man and his family by means of a very brutal break in alongside a couple of teens who were perhaps too eager about killing people to fit in many other professions. Everything went according to plan, and Alexandre's merry band killed the children and the wife before encountering the enraged man that had originally provoked the attack and he was soon after shot. However, it turned out that one bullet wasn't enough and that this particular man had supernatural support to back up his lack of care for threats made against him. With his equally surprising supernatural speed and strength he was able to quickly turn both teens into bloody meat-bits, and only because he went for them first that Alexandre was able to react in time to put some distance between the two and firing the entire magazine from his weapon into it's torso and head. Where one bullet had failed, many had succeeded and Alexandre had managed to kill the beast, or at least injure it badly enough that it could not pursue him.

In amazement of that night he recalled the stories of vampires and other horrors of the night that he had heard and reconsidered his belief in all of them. The first things he did following this encounter was attempt to get in touch with the person who had seemed to inhumanly stop aging, Americo, though Americo was slow to respond. Life went on normally after that for a few months, Alexandre slowly began to convince himself that it had all been some kind of stress hallucination or his memory was exaggerating until he heard back from Americo who made a vague semi-confirmation about what Alexandre saw, prompting Alexandre to seek him out in his roamings in Europe and leave Brazil and his position there behind, his faith in the power of guns and influence shoved down below knowledge of what was out there.

When Alexandre finally caught up with Americo he looked exactly the same as the last time they had met and this confirmed Alexandre's belief that he was not necessarily human. Through many questions and a very long conversation Americo told Alexandre that he had once found the fountain of youth and that it was the secret to his vitality. Through the conversation it was revealed that they had both been veterans of combat, though Americo was vague and avoided answering what specific war or battles he had taken part in he assured Alexandre that he understood the rigorous lifestyle of one who kills for a living. Ultimately Alexandre asked to travel with Americo in the pursuit of further supernatural knowledge and the opportunity to extend or improve his own life as a whole, as his grandfather had done with the fountain. Americo agreed and helped Alexandre to new equipment and to a basic understanding of the non-human entities that roamed the world.

Over the next few years and up until present time Alexandre has been traveling the world on assignment from Americo and sometimes alongside him doing battle either with or against (usually against in some way) various things that most would not even believe in the existence of. Through various contracts allying with vampires his perspective was changed and Alexandre began to care more and more exclusively about his own abilities and survivability and adapted a similar concept of life to that of his mentor and grandfather, Americo. All the while, Americo had been instructing him from time to time to improve his grandson's set of skills and Alexandre had taken it upon himself to become as educated as the common man in this time, believing it would probably help to have, at least, an average understanding of how the world works.

He checks out. For now...

That's true. He is fairly tall.

Those are some clothes. Not really sure what the purpose of the fancy shirt is, considering he wears a big coat over it, but whatever makes him happy.

Death isn't the only certainty. There's also Dandy.



Don't this guy have any hobbies, though?

Don't have ammo counts on most of your guns, and you don't give me a leg for that knife. DETAILS.

Second paragraph kind of randomly speeds up halfway through. Also, I have no fucking clue what ADA is. Is it Ada Koch, resident hobo living in True Cross?

Just some stuff to fix. Just some stuff.
