|Personal History||Alexi grew up near Albany, New York, the only child to a faltering family. Her mother tried her best, but between being poor, sick, and addicted to several different illegal substances, she wasn't much of anything. Her father... he was the stuff of nightmares. The domestic abuse charges started young, but slowly fell off. It wasn't that they stopped, it was that he got better at hiding them.
Alexi struggled through school, but still managed to do well, finding her footing in her academics and clubs at school, anything to keep her out of her house for as long as possible. She played softball, volleyball, and ran track, and was a member of every club that would take her. Her carefully stacked house of cards came down when she was sixteen.

Alexi couldn't live with it anymore, the dark and pain all around her, her mother spiralling into an abyss, and her life - seemingly - falling apart. The morning of her eighteenth birthday, she left her home before anyone was up, leaving a note for her mother that she loved her, she forgave her, but she couldn't stay with her, and she enlisted in Starfleet. She found out after the fact that her mother was dead in her bedroom, having committed suicide that same evening.
Alexi found herself alone... and oddly at peace with that. She excelled in her studies and her duties, becoming known as a diligent and dependable enlisted officer. The further and further she got from home, the more the knowledge that the old ghosts not only wouldn't, but couldn't follow her, the happier she got. The more her personality shifted from a friendly, quiet girl to an outgoing vivacious woman.
She speaks almost never about her childhood, avoid the topic at all costs, save to her counselor when he makes her. This is her life, and as far as she's concerned, she was dead before now.
Serving aboard the USS Andalu was a life changing event, giving her something that she'd never had sense the day she was born: A family. When she was asked by Commander Anderson to accompany him to his knew ship, the USS Asger, as his personal Yeoman, she couldn't say no. The man had become like a brother to her in the time they'd served together. Besides, he was too nice. He'd need someone to look after him.
