Alexis Nichole Bauer is the oldest daughter of Teri and Jack Bauer, and the older sister of Kim. She was born March 28, 1986, in Anaheim Hills, California, and is 5 years older than her sister.
When she was 10 years old, Alexis learned the truth of her father’s job – Agent for the US Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU). Already idolizing her father, from age 10 on, she did her best to follow in his footsteps.
When she entered High School, she enrolled immediately in the Army’s ROTC Program, and juggled that along with a strong academic career and several after school activities. All of this was in an effort to be accepted into West Point, which she did, upon her graduation.
She excelled in her studies at West Point, and graduated with honors, as a 1st Lieutenant. With her high marksmanship and other skills, her admission into the Rangers was almost a given, and for 5 years she excelled, attaining the rank of Captain, before she was recruited into the U.S. Military’s combined services Anti-Terrorist Force.
Like her father’s work in CTU, Alexis proved to be a skilled agent and interrogator. While she has continued to excel in her position in the Unit, rising to the rank of Major, the past several years have proven difficult however, with her mother’s murder, her father’s apparent death (and ensuing resurrection) as well as his recent incarceration first in China and now in Russia.
Alexis has been so focused on her career, that she had little contact with her family after graduating West Point, only seeing her father and sister at her mother’s funeral, and again seeing her sister at the funeral for her father a few years later. She has not had contact with her family since then, though with his recent incarceration, she has been attempting to locate her father’s whereabouts in Russia, in the hopes of formulating a plan to ‘extradite’ him.
