Aleksander grew up well outside Taldor's upper crust, but his family never really wanted. Officially, his mother was a low-level government bureaucrat and his father employed by the Lotheed family as a teamster. Unofficially, his parents were part of a cult of Kelinahat, the Empyreal Lord of Spies and Stealth. Growing up, Aleks spent much time in he care of relatives or with one parent away on "business". As he got older, he was introduced to the secret side of his parents' lives, and begin to assist them on missions, even as his faith in She of Ebon Wings grew and deepened. And then, one day while he was away being trained as an Inquisitor, his parents vanished. The cult could only say that they "were borne aloft on Ebon Wings", a common euphemism for cult operatives who didn't come back from missions. Aleksander was able to do enough digging to uncover that they were trying to uncover something to do with the Pythareus family, but nothing more. He has since thrown himself into off-the-books work for the Lotheed family, in part to follow in his parents footsteps and honor their memory, in part because it's the only work he knows, and staying busy helps him keep ahead of the grief. He has developed extensive contacts in the Opparan underworld, not all of whom the Lotheeds would necessarily approve of. Even so, he has become a valued agent of the family, and especially their young scion Martella, who has made use of his talents on several occasions.
A pale thin man with black hair, Aleksander is fairly unremarkable and blends easily into a crowd. He has always known that he was different, better able to see at night, less affected by the cold of Opparan winters, stealthier than any of his childhood peers, but he never knew why. Shortly before her disappearance, his mother mentioned telling him some old family stories, but she never got the chance. What he doesn't know is that his mother's family descends in part from Fetchlings of the Shadow Plane. His abilities, which continue to develop with age, are a legacy of that birthright. Aleksander generally dresses in dark colors appropriate to his role at any given moment, whether peasant garb or that of a courtier. Few notice, but Aleks casts no shadow. It is as if the light passes directly through him. Despite this, he has long notived his ability to practically disappear into even the thinnest shadows, and recently he has developed the ability to wrap those shadows around himself, using the darkness itself as armor, a blessing he ascribes to his patron Kelinahat.
