Aleczander, or Alec to his friends, is the stand-out in his
family. He has never seen his family as unsuccessful, but they have
always been very aesthetically impressive with their skills. Alec has
wanted more than a quiet serene life. His father couldn't understand
Aleczander's decision to leave Earth and travel help others in the
galaxy. His mother, the thinker, could easily relate. "Aleczander
is a wandering healer of the stars. He has the same soft spoken nature
as the rest of my children. My Timothy just can not realize helping
others is his way of expression," his mother, Helena, would tell
friends and family. Nothing brings a smile quicker to Aleczander's
face than a fresh home cooked meal and a cold beverage to wash it
down. He has never been one for extravagance and easily accepts a
basic meat and potatoes dish over the fanciest of feasts.

hearing wouldn't be consider superhuman, but it has allowed his to excel
at music as well as language. He has an obsession for music, playing
trumpet and piano for very small groups on rare occasions. His music is
one of the few personal things he rarely shares from his open life book.
"Sometimes I would hear Alec playing his trumpet in the attic. I
don't think he knew we could hear. I'm not sure he even wanted us to
know or he wouldn't have boxed himself in the attic just to play,"
says Ian. Aleczander is proficient in many languages and has the ability
to pick up new tongues very quickly. He credits it to his eidetic ear,
meaning his ability to hear something once and have it virtually
committed to memory. He speaks his 'family tongue' of Russian, as well
as basic Federation languages, such as Klingon, Romulan, Vulcan and the
like. Mitchell stays active by playing tennis with both live and
holographic opponents. He also uses the holodecks to recreate Medieval
battles from Earth's ancient past.
is a well mannered individual. He is a person that knows how to talk and
has a great 'bedside' manner with people. He also looks for best inside
people. His sense of humor is not very well tuned. He is often the last
to get the joke despite his efforts to understand. With a tendency to
wear his heart on his sleeve he is always looking out for others, and
sometimes forgets to look out for himself in the process... something
that he struggles with.
always could count on Alec to play big brother," Katerina says.
Alec has a fear of water. He had never learned to swim and is not fond
of being in or, sometimes even, near any large body of water. While on
vacation, when Aleczander was eight years old, he fell into a lake The
Mitchell's had been staying by. Unaware what had happened, alec was
