Alexander was born aboard the USS Typhoon, and spent most of his time as a young boy aboard the Starfleet vessel. When Alexander, his younger sister, and mother travelled to see extended family in 2371 the USS Typhoon was destroyed in a freak accident involving the Typhoon's warp core. Alexander was devastated when not only his father was taken from him, but also the only home he had ever known.

As a teenager Alexander excelled in athletics, he pushed himself into physical exercise and sports as a way of dealing with the pain he felt from the loss' he endured in his childhood. While attending secondary school Alexander realized his homosexuality, but always kept this to himself. Alexander believed that certain things were private and sexuality was one thing he believed in keeping to himself.

When Alexander graduated from secondary school he took a few years off. He travelled with his sister and mother around the Federation. His mother had fuelled herself into writing ever since his father's untimely death. Although Alexander and Georgina's mother provided them with wealth, Alexander had always looked after his and his sister's emotional needs.

While staying aboard SB118 with his family Alexander met an Engineer he became infatuated with. Crewman Trevor Ronsa, a Betazoid/Terran hybrid, became instant friends with Alexander. The two eventually became intimate, and when it came time for Alexander to depart the station back to Earth he was distraught. Alexander then decided to pursue a career in Starfleet. He believed if he became a Starfleet Officer that he and Trevor would be able to spend more time together.

After Alexander enrolled in Starfleet Academy he instantly took a liking to the psychology studies he was required to take. Alexander also excelled in the security training classes, due to his athletic nature. He and Trevor stopped their intimate relationship, which Alexander always kept private from others, and the two remain good friends. Alexander is proud of himself for breaking away from his family and experiencing something new. He wants to prove to himself he can accomplish anything he puts his mind to.
