Main Character Synopsis Character Profile: Protagonist: Alex Jones. DOB: May 24th, 1984. Background: Alex Jones was born in London to a poor family, his father left him and his mother when he was seven. He'd never been that smart of a child, his marks in school were always drifting from being in the high-80's to low-70's. He left school at 16 and decided to join the military. He applied and passed the basic fitness and aptitude tests with ease. Having always been a good athlete, playing football and basketball at school, the standards for the basic fitness levels were much lower than he'd expected. His military career went from strength to strength which led to him ultimately being seconded to the SAS. He rose to the rank of Captain in the SAS and despite being a good soldier and the sort of man you'd want at your side, one decision ruined his military career. Out on an operation in Afghanistan to rescue three captured British aid workers, his four-man SAS team was partnered up with a four-man US Navy SEAL team. They reached the compound and secured it. Just when the order was about to be given for the team to swarm and rescue the aid workers, the American OC decided that the area was too hot and gave the order to stand down. Alex and his team disobeyed the order and rescued the three aid workers. He was court-martialled and kicked out of the military. Ever since his military career ended he's been in and out of various jobs, security guards for hotels, private security for diplomats that sort of thing. He's lonely and nearly jobless, a return to action is in order.
