Description: "Alexei" (possibly a pseudonym) is a young soldier of uncertain nationality (likely Magnimar) and parentage (but quite obviously possessing some measure of elf blood). He is a very small man, shorter than most men or elves, and when not in the saddle comports himself with an exaggerated swagger as if to compensate. Beneath his jaunty cap, worn at a decidedly non-regulation tilt and bearing a decidedly non-regulation feather, you can see he is fair-haired and light-eyed. He's quick to smile, exceptionally quick to anger, and much stronger and more intelligent than he appears.
He comports himself as a gentleman-soldier, but is at heart somewhat of a scoundrel -- although from an overdeveloped sense of fun, rather than from any ill will. Alexei's brain seethes with a thousand schemes, each more unlikely than the next; he deems himself a master of intrigue, and gathers all manner of intelligence, as well as attempting to insure that his assigned orders are always in accord with his own plans ("If I can't talk the captain into seeing things my way, I'll forge a set of orders from higher up!").
