Alex Valentine Cavendish is a member of the guild Kurohana. He is also known as Keiji by his peers.

Ale'x casual attire.

Alex has spiky red hair, fair skin and deep blue eyes. His eyes  change depending on his mood and situation, narrowing and sharpening when he goes into bloodlust mode. Alex is fairly lean due to the time he spent working out in the academy. As the time passes, he becomes more muscular and toned.

Alex typically wears a black v-neck shirt with long sleeves that are folded up to his elbows and black pants with black oxford shoes. When at home or at the guild, he always wear his favorite white long sleeve t-shirt and pajamas with dog sandals.


During his highschool days, Alex has a happy-go-lucky attitude towards his everyday life. Not planning ahead of his life and causing troubles to his teachers because of not having a goal in mind. His attitude that doesn't care about what futures holds to him changed when he met Selena Nakiri, which later became his wife.

Alex's happy-go-lucky face that will annoy people.

He still retains his positive attitude and his calm demeanor but he 

now has plans for the future and ultimately he becomes more wiser. He still have his impulse on doing things like the time when he propose to Selena because of the spur of the moment but it is not a half hearted proposal.

During his 20's, he became more serious about life and he dedicated his whole life on protecting Selena. He wish to make her happy and he thinks that she is the world to him. He is a hard worker and a smart person being able to work at the most high end company, the GeneticX, is a proof of it.

His personality changed when his wife died. He become more impulsive on his actions, no mercy at whoever stands in his way and he becomes a person that won't open to anybody. He blamed himself for his lack of ability to save his wife from the kidnappers.

In the midst of his struggle through survival, he created personas to bury his agony. During his travels on different time period, he will switch to different persona base on the time period but still keeping his deadly instinct of killing people flawlessly.

Being a member of KurohanaEdit

He is a calm and collective person. His not very matured but doesn't let emotions take over when it comes to decision making. Although he will prioritize those who are dear to him. He will not take things seriously sometimes, making Henry mad at him one time.

He often make names for the people he knew and considered as friends. He calls Tawan as Assassin-kun with a Japanese honorific and Henry as Watson but he does not mean of insulting them.A little bit eccentric, he opens the fridge by his feet, read newspaper while listening to the radio. He has also like to make things tidy and organize. He watches documentaries to fall asleep.

He has a book with no content, just a blank paper to make sitting cooler. He doesn't get angry too easily. He does not hold grudges. He does not make promises as he said "promises are fairy tales made by liars". He is a bit of a philosopher on his thoughts without making them words, he goes through all these thoughts, Questions and Answers, to just shrug it off and apply the course of action depending on the situation. His mind is boisterous to even make himself annoyed by that fact.

Due to his introverted nature, he often finds something fun even the most boring moment. He likes observing human body language. He likes playing games with Tawan on the simulator although they only played once. He likes gathering of friends but not actually taking part of the talking. He likes to listen to other people. He likes learning new things.

He was issued with an important mission by a higher rank member of the guild, Yvette. He was deployed on a different planet to eliminate a dangerous leader. His employer briefed him through the mission's objective and the planning of the assault. The mission then begun with Alex sneaking through alley ways and entering a underground tunnel where the leader can be found. Alex used his abilities and skills to flawlessly eliminate 14 targets within 4 minutes.

He noticed that the door locking the leader inside is reinforced with steal beams that jet fuels can't melt. He sabotage his capture to the guards to get close of the leader. Having getting inside the bunker of the leader, Alex immediately disposed the 2 guards holding him. The leader attacks Alex with brute force that gazed Alex's face and got his left arm broken. Alex did not bother to unleash the beast inside him and killed the leader with precise cutting using his Karambit.

This finished his mission with flying colors. He later comes back to the guild and reported on what happens on the mission to Yvette.This mission earned him the tittle and promoted to higher ranks of the guild.
