Lex Cortez

Basic Questions

What is your birth name? Alexander Juan Cortez

Do you have a nickname, and if so, how did you get it? Lex, Lexi-Boy. At an early age, his brother accidentally called him Lex instead of Alex and it kinda stuck. Lexi-Boy is a quasi term of endearment when uttered by a very small handful of people, i.e. Raul and Chuck. Anyone else who calls him that sound patronizing to Lex and he hates it.

If you do not use your real name, what name do you go by? Why the alias? While in Mexico, Lex goes by the alias Eli Remington. It is better for Lex in the long run to not be officially seen in Juarez, Mexico.

What do you look like (Include height, weight, hair, eyes, skin, apparent age, and distinguishing features)? Lex is about 5’ll, is 32, well toned, short cropped mowhawk with tattoos on either side. His most well-known tattoo is a complete sleeve on his left arm consisting of an intricate circuitry pattern that extends from his wrist all the way up to the base of his neck. Another distinguishing feature is the claw-mark scar on the side of his head, given to him by a wendigo.

How do you dress most of the time? On an average day, you’ll see Lex wearing jeans, khakis, army surplus pants, a wide variety of classic rock band t-shirts, boots and skater shoes. If it’s colder out, a leather motorcycle jacket or a hoodie.

On the rare occasion where you may have to dress-up, what do you wear? If he’s dressing up to the nines, Lex always has had a thing for three-piece suits. If it isn’t a formal affair but requires nice clothes, he wears a white buttoned up shirt, with vest and tie and a pair of nice pants.

What do you wear when you go to sleep? Usually just a pair of boxers.

Do you wear any jewelry? Lex wears a couple of rings on each hand. One having the Riders of Mayhem logo engraved. While he doesn’t wear it necessarily as jewelry, Lex wears a rosary that Mikaela left for him when he recently moved to Boston.

What’s your real birth date? February 29, 1976.

Describe your apartment: Feeling somewhat guilty for bringing everyone into the troubles of the Men of Mayhem, Lex decided that his living accommodations with his brother were no longer appropriate. Even though the arrangements had little affect on Raul’s social standings, Lex moved in to a small, one bedroom apartment

Do you own a vehicle? Lex owns a 2005 Harley-Davidson Dyna Super Glide Sport with a custom paintjob of green circuitry pattern to match his sleeve. He also owns a 2000 Jeep Wrangler for the off-summer season when he can’t drive his bike.

What is your most prized possession? Being a hacker, Lex tends to scan and clean his laptop on a daily basis, ensuring that his identity is always securely hidden. He takes great pains to stay anonymous on the internet. The only thing he babies more than his laptop is his motorcycle. Those two things are his prized possessions.

Personality Questions

If someone saw you walking towards them, what would their impression of you be? There is something about the way Lex Looks. Perhaps it’s the way he seems to exude confidence. Perhaps it’s all the physical training and maybe it’s the all the tattoos. Or the claw marks on his head. Whatever it is, he has the appearance that he won’t take any guff from anyone. But Who knows? You can just tell that he’s seen things and wasn’t afraid to face them head on.

When faced with a problem, do you go at it head on? Or do you plan and/or plot? Lex used to be somewhat compulsive with no prior planning when facing problems. He still does exhibit those behaviors, but is more reflective beforehand. Unless he’s feeling impatient.

If someone was being assaulted by a bigger person than you, would you stop and help the victim? Lex would definitely step. He has a soft spot for the little guy getting harassed by larger people.

Should the strong defend the weak? If they are in a position to, definitely.

What’s your opinion on those who are intellectually, or physically, inferior to you and vice versa?
