Yes, yet another character I never used. I'm starting to think maybe I should just design characters for others to play around with...



alexander

He is one of two "onlys": He lives in the only world that even vaguely resembles "steampunk," and it's a very practical, light steampunk at that. And he's the only character I have ever created with the name Alexander, probably partly because I have so many friends with that name. However, I am unable to conceive of him by any other name.

So. Alexander Barry is a toxicologist specializing in neurotoxins, especially zootoxins. His business, however is slightly shady (as seems to happen oddly often with my male protagonists o.O) and lost two of his fingers in a transaction. His face and hands were burned by chemicals when he was much younger, and in face, he can barely see out of his burned eye (although he'll lie and say he can see perfectly.) Despite this, he's also rather popular with women, particularly those of ill-repute, and is considered a useful connection to those in the upper classes.

The one woman he could ever imagine marrying is one he is unable to have...although the two only seem to want to marry when they can't.

I really like this one. Alexander is the only name I can picture him having also, now that you mention it. It suits him to a T.

Everything about this is intriguing. The green eyes, especially, give him a unique look. And I love his backstory.

Merry Christmas to you, and have a great New year's. too.

Hugs,
Linda
