Physical Description

X-137, aka Alex, is a decidedly normal notail with entirely ordinary notail features. She is of average height for a notail, and possessed of a slim build. Alex has pale pinkish skin and long pinkish-red hair, typically tied in a low ponytail, and is slightly eccentric, to an extent that is in fact, perfectly normal. Her antenna are rather short, and somewhat fake looking, many have thought they were in fact entirely fake and that she did not have any. This is not the case.

She wears incredibly casual attire, consisting of a white t-shirt with her number displayed as a large black "X" across the front, with a smaller "137" in the left quadrant. As well as a pair of dark gray cargo pants and a military style jacket, with a patch with her number on it worn on her left shoulder, and a teal armband displaying nothing in particular on her right sleeve. Most of her body is covered in bandages, which are not to be construed as alarming.

X-137's face is sharp and angular, with a notable "seam" running down the middle. The eyes are crossed out, the left circled in black ink and colored red. Finally it has a smallish V-shaped smile on the bottom.

Personality & Traits

X-137 is often regarded as aloof and mildly standoffish. This is not itself overly odd, what is odd, is that X-137 is not nearly as standoffish or aloof as one might expect. She typically attempts to appear as typical as possible, which in this case, means to be mildly unsettling, and rather nosey.

To some, these attempts at normalcy come across as conspicuous, a deliberate attempt to appear unassuming. That would of course be implying she is insincere, which is certainly not the case.

Her general continence beyond this is reserved and unassuming. She's slow to get close to people, or speak up in a non-professional context, or engage in any manner which would put her on the spot, even in a private setting where there are no judgmental eyes that suspect her of anything but being ordinary.

History

Alex doesn't care much for discussing her childhood, when questioned on the issue she often brushes off questions with vague answers such as "I was washed out of the system" or "I was discarded" and similar such answers.

Nevertheless, at some point she ended up in the care of a K-class notail, who, in exception of convention, decided to raise her as his "daughter". She lived like this for some sixteen years, but on that year, apparently on her birthday* something happened which required her to leave her father's care.

After this she spent a rather inordinate amount of time "bumming it around the universe" doing horrible typical X-class things. What these things are is entirely unknown, as she has not told anyone what what she was doing, but be assured, they were most certainly very very bad.

To those that felt inclined to look into her business an unsurprisingly small number it could be observed that there was seemingly some semblance of a pattern to where she wandered during this period, a connecting thread, but alas, if there was some higher cause, she refused to tell anyone.

Special

Jekyll: Alex is a profoundly normal, and entirely fine girl. But some uncorroborated reports hold that she is not all that she seems, and indeed, there might be something strange and concerning about her. If you have anything to report on this matter, contact you local Cosmosdex branch office.

Trivia

• When she's not involved in other projects, she is often seen moonlighting as a cook at a Galaxy Burger (Home of the Galaxy Burger) location, "It pays the bills Xv(X)" She comments.

• She is often found on derelict ships evidently the only survivor of whatever calamity caused the ship to become adrift in the first place. Curiously enough she is rarely listed on the manifest as having boarded these ships, though occasionally she is referred to as hitchhiking on them.

• Alex has the poor luck to often end up in locations relatively soon after a massacre has occurred. She has no idea why this is, and refuses to comment on it.
