Aleksandra Laskaris is good-humored and quick-witted, but slow to trust, holding those that have earned her loyalty and admiration close. A tracker, hunter, and scout, Aleks takes her tasks in Gaia's defense seriously, leaving the humor and wit until after the threat has passed. Deep scars mark the woman's psyche, and all too often it shows.
Born in the dead of the night in November of 1986, under the darkness of the new moon, Aleksandra Sophia Vukovic spent the first years of her life in Thessaloniki, Greece with her mother Zoe - a theurge of great skill and wisdom, hailing from the Silver Fang House Wise Heart - and father Steven Vukovic. Aleks was never given much of a chance to know her mother, though, as her mother was killed when the girl was only four. Left to raise the girl alone, Aleks' father left Greece to put distance between himself and his wife's killer, placing his young daughter in the care of a kinfolk foster family in Chicago.
It was there that Aleks spent her formative years, growing up alongside another child placed in the family's care - a young Silver Fang boy named James La Coix. The two became inseparable, like brother and sister, relying on each other when they had no one else. Aleks saw little of her birth fater, save once a year when the man came to see her and teach her skills he felt she needed to survive on her own. Otherwise, Aleks had a normal life - school, friends, and her new family, wanting for very little.
In 2005, shortly after graduating High School, a trip with friends to Europe changed Aleksandra's life drastically. Her best friend killed, her girlfriend revealed to be an agent of the Wyrm, and armed men on her trail, Aleks finally came into her own - undergoing her First Change. With the power granted her by Gaia, and the survival skills learned from her father, Aleks narrowly survived until rescue came. The experience changed her, and she left behind her 'normal' life to throw herself into her new duties as Garou. When she fulfilled her rite of passage, she surprised everyone by choosing the Black Furies over the Tribe of her birth, feeling a stronger pull to her Greek heritage than anything else.
Ever since, Aleks has moved about, for quite a while with her younger brother in tow. Most recently, she has relocated to Puerto Rico, helping to establish a new Caern there.
