Alec was born on the military training world as the child of two instructors at the academy there. Living in a family with such a military tradition he learnt to shoot a gun and survival techniques from a very young age. When he was 20 the empire took control of the academy to train new troops and officers for their expanding army and that is when Alec joined the Academy.
He was not to become an office but a simple troop, to become one of the enlisted men within the Stormtrooper ranks. He graduated and went into active duty on the backwater world of Tatooine, after 2 years he was dishonourably discharged from the ranks when he refused to carry out an order.
Now stranded on Tatooine he joined the crew of the first ship off the desert planet Known as The Scimitar, a bounty hunter ran the ship. He worked on the crew utilizing his skills as a hired gun and aided in the capture of bounties. Alhough he didn’t like bringing in imperial bounties, he did what he needed to do to survive in an unforgiving galaxy.
After only 6 months onboard this ship it was attacked by rival hunters and most of the crew were slaughtered, save Alec. He managed to save the ship by entering hyperspace and jumping out of harms way. Being the only survivor he inherited the vessel and decided to get a crew and carry on doing hat he did best and hunt bounties.
