Alexander Carlyle (27 July, 3036[1] - c. 3067) was the son of famed mercenary commander Grayson Carlyle and Lori Kalmar. He served with the 2nd Royal Guards on Tharkad as the commander of their Lightning company. Alexander began service in the LAAF as a way to further bind the Gray Death Legion to Katherine Steiner-Davion.

Character History[edit]

When the famous Gray Death Legion was destroyed in 3065 and most of its personnell killed, Alexander Carlyle was expected to perhaps pick up the legacy, but Katherine Steiner-Davion would not allow him to resign from his posting with the Royal Guards.[2]

After the FedCom Civil War, Alex intended to rebuild the Legion. However, this was not possible as his family's claim to Glengarry had been stripped, and the Mercenary Review and Bonding Commission indicated that because of the Legion's spotty track-record with turning on their employers, they could not be appropriately graded.[3]

Instead, Duke Brewer of Hesperus II raised a coroporate security force, Brewer's Legion, from the remains of the Gray Death Legion and gifted it to Gray Death Technologies on Glengarry as a security force in 3067. According to rumors, Alexander Carlyle, recently discharged from the LAAF as of November 3067, was expected to join that unit as its executive officer soon.[4] However, that apparently did not come to pass and Brewer's Legion was utterly vanquished in the field on 17 December 3069 by Word of Blake forces.

Although he was reportedly discharged from the LAAF in 3067, it is generally assumed that Alexander Carlyle was still on Tharkad when the planet was devastated by the first shots of the Jihad on 5 December 3067, and that he was among the unnumbered dead following the orbital bombardment, probably dying on 5 December or shortly thereafter to be buried in an anonymous mass grave.
