Alexander "Alex" Petronus
Alex is the commander of the Fierce Allegiance Mercenaries hired by Rogan Clontarf to support the regime change on Vorito (2329,Trojan Reach). Alex professes not know the exact details of the operation when question on Peridot. But as a portion of his fee he is to receive land on Vorito on which to build a base, and a contract to provide security for a new government. Miranda asked about the land on the pretense of not wanting to offend the locals. Alex assures her that despite the land being located in a province where locals go on religious retreats, the land itself is not considered sacred. In fact, the land is considered haunted as a result of a battle among the local gods in the distant past.
Alex is an elderly man well into his seventies or even eighties but appearance, with the exception of his remarkably good physical condition and keen mind. He has at several ships under his command including the Iron Duke a Broadsword class mercenary cruiser, the Fafnir a Dragon class System Defense Boat and his personal ship the Princess Anne’s Revenge custom built frontier cruiser. Alex is often accompanied by his beautiful daughter, Naomi, from his sixth marriage.
