The Origins of Alexander Defu II
Growing up in the Ports of the Atli, the lower class of society had a rough origin, but he made it through the scraps. One of the only individuals in 400 years to have gone from having nothing to being a billionaire.
His story began at the Ports, Water Down Orphanage, where he and many other children were dropped off because their parents either passed away or couldn’t afford them. The orphanage is one of the only places that the government funds in the Ports and a lot of people will purposely drop their children off to have hope at a better life.
Alexander Defu the II was dropped off at an older age, his father died in a mining accident which their mother couldn’t believe. She cursed the government and claimed that Alexander the I did not die in such an accident and that the claim by the government officials was fake. They were covering something else up.
Multiple times the government has claimed that Delta Defu had mental problems upon mental problems and no one should believe her. Before marrying Alexander, she was a perfectly normal girl and Alexander the I was known to be an activist and figuring out how to escape the Atli society because he swore that there was life outside the man-made walls.
After the death of his father and his mother becoming more active in being against the government, she got sick under unknown circumstances while Alexander the II was around the age of twelve. None of the Port doctors could figure out why she was sick and she would claim that the government used biological warfare against the people of Atlas, this was one of those times she swore before passing away.
She lived her last few months in the Port Hospital before being sent home to die, Alexander stayed up all night with her while she slowly passed away trying to stay strong for her child.
“Mother you can let go-” begging the woman to let go, “-you do not have to suffer anymore,” he cried while trying to stay strong for his mother. That night was life changing to the young boy, watching his mother pass, and being sent to an orphanage the next day without any warning. Government officials came in and took him away. The last time he saw his mother, she was lying completely still and lifeless on her bed. He never even got to go to a funeral.
A promise was made the night of her death, he promised that he would figure out who caused her and his father’s death, and he would get back on them. No one but them knew about this promise and Alexander began his new life out of ambition and determination.
The Ports had no child labor laws, so he went on to find different jobs. Maybe a new job every week which was overwhelming, exhausting, and out of this world [not in a goodway]. All the money he would receive from such drastic jobs, he spent the coin on tipping the robot. He wanted the scholarship coin and he was determined to get it.
Finally, one day, he got it! He was amazed and somebody tried to steal it. Alexander was fifteen years old and an older man tried to take the coin away from him. Multiple people were asking to look at the coin in assumption, Alexander realized most wanted to take it from him. Either for their children or their own gain, he wouldn’t show anybody, and that day he ran all the way to the center.
Going up to the counter and putting the coin in the ladies face, “I have one, I have one, please register me!” he begged before she took it. Amazed that she was seeing a dirty Port child with a university coin. She assumed he stole it from somebody and asked him to sit down. She not shalantly went through the tapes and watched the hallways and realized that the child won it fair and square.
After hours of sitting there, Alexander was told that he was registered into school and university. That he needed to fill out some paperwork and make his new journey to Atlas Colony for boarding school as soon as possible.
That’s when his whole life flipped around, he was put in boarding school, and nicely the government pays for everything when you win a coin. They paid for his room and board, extra necessities, and they even gave the young man a spending budget of 2000 digitals a month. This was enough to buy extra clothes, meals, or other things that he needed for school.
After participating in boarding school and becoming known as a young entrepreneur, Alexander created his first business before even reaching college. He was focused on the Atlas stock markets and was making bank from his extracurricular activities focusing on business and accounting.
While going to college the young Alexander Defu completed a doctorate in nuclear engineering, a masters in political science, and two bachelor degrees in mechanical & robotics engineering and electrical engineering. On top of all his school based achievements the young man has picked up many hobbies in different fields of advanced learning and has a job teaching as a professor at the Advanced Technology Learning Academic School [A.T.L.A.S], one of the best universities in Atlas.
The young man is accused by the news broadcasters to be the secret leader of the Surface Finders. No one knows who or where the activist group started, but they are the ones that cause the most trouble in the government's eyes. His house can be found around the Americas Atlas, yet not many know where he exactly lives or has ever been to his house.
Though a lot of people know the young billionaire by his story. He is the founder and CEO of Defu Technology and Research center, a privatized company that restricts government access (one of the biggest reasons the media always triggers to him being a cultist, a leader of an activist group, etc...). @Tsukai
