Business has been brisk. Something big's coming, I can feel it.”
Background[edit | edit source]
Gruff and terse, Alexander is an ambitious trade representative for the Gun Runners whose primary job is visiting Camp McCarran and Hoover Dam every week to collect orders from the Army's command for weapons and ammunition. The recent debacle on the I-15 forced him to relocate to the 188 trading post in order to conduct his business, primarily checking the stock and directing deliveries to meet the orders he's gathered. He dislikes being forced to do business at what's basically a backwater post to him. However, he knows it's not permanent and his income allows him to go down to the Strip every month, burn through a stack of money, and still have enough left over for the future.
Alexander is something of a collector, and holds on to any weapon modifications he might come across. Sometimes he might sell them at a decent markup.

Appearances[edit | edit source]
Alexander appears only in Fallout: New Vegas
- The Courier: "What do you do?"
Alexander: "I'm a salesman. I swing through McCarran and the dam once a week or so to take orders. But lately I spend most of my time in this piss heap. Ever since the 15 shut down, all caravans come through here - right to me. I check the stock and direct deliveries onward to meet orders. Sure, it stinks to hang out here, but it won't be forever. Plus I can afford a monthly bender on the Strip and still build up my nest egg."
- The Courier: "I figure a guy like you gets his pick of killing gear."
Alexander: "[SUCCEEDED] You might be on to something. I like to hang on to any weapons mods I run across... Take a look."
