While Alesser would describe himself merely as “confident,” almost everyone else would describe him as conceited, vain, and arrogant. He has a stellar record and is no stranger to long-distance exploratory missions, but he has a way of aggravating nearly everyone he comes in contact with.
As Ardanans are outwardly identical to Humans, Alesser’s heritage is not immediately evident. With a small percentage of Human influence in his heritage (and thus genetics), he appears to be ethnically North African or Egyptian, though one of his Human ancestors was from Lebanon and the other was from Greece, so his appearance largely derives from his Ardanan genetic components. He has pitch-black hair, which he keeps short to near-shaved on the sides and long enough on the top to style. He is just as likely to appear clean-shaven as he is to have stubble or a short beard, depending on his mood.
With a very strict workout regimen, Alesser is in top physical shape. At 173 cm tall and 76 kg, he is a little below average in height and significantly above average in muscle tone and body composition. He’s not shy about showing off, either.
While confident to a fault, Alesser’s arrogance is nowhere near as strong as it once was earlier in his career. His time in senior positions on ships of increasing size and complexity has given him a mellower approach to his dealings with others, simply because he now understands that he will only be respected if people perceive him as being more competent than he actually claims to be. Though certainly not self-effacing, he’s become better at letting his results speak for themselves. With that being said, he is highly self-interested and ambitious, and he goes into every situation examining how he can manipulate the outcome to his benefit. While he does actually believe in Starfleet’s mission, his sense of altruism is perhaps less pure than his peers.
Thanks both to an Ardanan dismissal of so-called lesser evolved races’ sexual prudishness and because of his comfort in his own good looks, he is often quite flirtatious. While he would never purposefully make someone else uncomfortable in this way, one of his default modes of interacting with attractive strangers is to try his luck with a pick-up line, or at the least some suggestive eye contact. While he has interacted sexually with beings of many genders, he considers himself to be homoromantic, i.e. only romantically interested in members of his own gender, though whether he’s actually experienced true romance is a matter of some internal debate.
