Tammie Sombre was 19 visiting her mothers grave. Extremely guilty that she let her mother put herself out with an overdose of sleeping pills. Tammie didn't know better. Her mother was in so much pain. She silently cried when she felt a hand tap her shoulder. She jumped at the sudden touch. She almost dislocated his arm. The man introduced himself as Hades. He asked the beautiful young woman what was wrong and she explained herself.
Hades and Tammie talked for along time. They met up at her home and one thing led to another. Tammie had Alexander and Hades had left to guard the Doors of Death. Tammie wasn't sad though. She understood he had responsibilities. She took care of Alexander throughout the years.
As a toddler, Alexander was very humble. He was satisfied with everything his mother had gotten for him when it came to toys. He always slept with his mom, because he didn't want his single mom to sleep alone. Alexander never complained to his mother. He never asked for anything.
In Atlanta, Georgia, Alexander struggled in school a lot, he couldn't get over a C- in each class. The kids would laugh at him because of that. He also got suspended in plenty of the schools because of all the kids that bullied him. He was very patient, but when he was finally on edge, he went off on everyone. At the age of 12, he threw some desks and cursed out almost all the 10 kids in his class.
The principal expelled him without a blink of an eye. Alexander went from school to school.. The longest he ever stayed in school was surprisingly eight months. Eventually, in high school, Alexander made some real friends. They admired the way he was and how he acted. But, they were also bad influences. They would skip school and take a blunt in different hidden alleys.
He got his first tattoo at the age of 14. It was illegally done by one of his friends' mates. It was always covered by a shirt. The tattoo says 'TRILLEST'. He also had a tattoo on his wrist saying 'KING' in cursive, he covered it with a gold watch.. By this age everyone in the block respected him and were afraid of him. Though he'd never pick a fight, when someone tested his patience to the point it was finally gone.. he could do some pretty horrible things.
Throughout the time, He sold some dope to get money for his struggling mom. He resented his father for leaving her, and not even trying to send a decent child support check.
At the age of 13, his closest homie, Pedro, gave him a celestial bronze dagger and silver dog chain. Pedro told him to tug on the chain, and when he did a silver rapier appeared in his hands. Bewildered by the weapon he dropped it on accident. Pedro chuckled and picked up the sword. He gently pressed the pommel against his thigh and it turned back into a dog chain.
"No questions," he warned, "Use it whenever you're in a 'weird'.. uh.. fight." He threw the chain to Alexander he left. Alexander was sure he was never going to use either of them. He couldn't imagine himself killing, or maiming anyone but he took them unusual gifts anyway.
While he was in the alley alone a girl with a strange limp from school walked up to him. He didn't know how she found him, he assumed one of his friends tried to hook him up. He remembered how she flirted with him. He showed her his blade and she was a bit hesitant.
"Aww, come on Mami, I ain't gon hurt you with this." He said.
"Yea, I'll kill you before you can even try." She turned into a hideously beautiful demon. Her hair frizzed out and her nails grew like talons, her eyes were the bloody color of red. She smirked and lunged at him, she scratched his arm. Trying to ignore the pain, his brain went on auto, he tugged on his chain and let the rapier grow in his hand as he side-stepped her next attack and stabbed her deep in the back. She let out a loud wail as he watched her disintegrate into dust.
He told Pedro about it and he looked a bit agitated.
Pedro had told him something very important. He revealed to him, his goat legs and his horns. He explained to him everything about the gods, and monsters. Pedro also told him how he needed to escort him to a camp for demigods like him. Alexander then explained this to his mom, who surprisingly understood. He packed his things and kissed his mother good-bye, knowing he would do anything for her. He and Pedro left to the camp.
While on the way they fought a harpie. She was very fast, but they managed to kill her. Alexander had slashed her in half while she was charging at him with extreme speed. In North Virginia, a hellhound sniffed them out and almost bit Alexander's foot off if Pedro hadn't killed it from behind.
They both had each others' back because they could have died plenty of times. By the time Alexander was 15 he and Pedro both arrived at Camp Half-Blood.
He left camp for a while because he was simply bored and went back home. His mom was overjoyed to see her little boy come back.
On his 16th birthday he was attacked on the way home. Another hellhound tried to fight him. The fight was decent since he had gotten training at CHB. He killed the hellhound and walked away as if it were nothing.
A week after turning 17, he was attacked by an enchanting empousa. She almost wooed him until he saw her eyes redden unnaturally. He immediately dodged her kiss and tried to stab her in the back. She was quick, and lunged at him she succeeded and moved to rip out his neck with her teeth. He panicked and stuck he dagger through her sternum and watched as she desinegrated on him.
At the age of 18, he managed to pass school so he was now free. At a club he met a young cyclops who looked about 20. He got into a drunk fight with him (both were drunk) and surprisingly won. He cheered and continued to drink.
He turned 19 and decided to go back to CHB. He kissed his mom goodbye once again and found his way back. He was attacked by numerous harpies and hellhounds, but made it there in one piece.
