Personal History Born into a noble family of significant means, Alax led a sheltered life attending the best private schools. At an early age he identified with the Church of the Great Fire, the most widespread and formidable religious organization on Betazed. It advocated a life of stainless purity that rejected material, worldly pleasures in exchange for an ascetic and service-oriented life. His charisma catapulted him into the upper echelons of the organization’s hierarchy, giving him control of a local church in the capital city with attendance in the thousands and syndicated programming that reached hundreds of thousands more. Seeing him as a figure capable of commanding a loyal following, he was identified early on as a candidate for leadership by the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance that controlled Betazed. Eventually, he was tapped as Intendant of the planet and began overseeing Alliance operations in addition to his religious responsibilities.

After assuming his position as Intendant, he was swiftly appointed Ecumenical Patriarch of the Church of Holy Fire. Three months after that appointment, some questions arose in the KCA leadership as to the young man’s loyalties. Were they divided equally? Did he seek to use his position as Intendant to proselytize and spread his Church’s teachings, or use the Church as a means of control as originally intended?
