@Roman Markeyev: Even if her name is russian, her nickname was given by a non-russian guy (brazilian).
In Brazil Francisco is a very common name, but we usually short it to Chico. I had a japanese granfather, whose name was Shigemoto and people called him Chico as well since it was easier.
@Roman it's not like she was born and baptized in Russia. Lore-wise, Alek was named by Jo after she and the other three girls were chosen as a replacement for Engie, so it's not like she NEEDS to have a Russian name.
So... I know this is going back to the actually good hair and all comic, but there is one thing that was bothering me for a loooong time now: there is no female Aleks in Russian naming convention. They are called "Sasha" if you wanted get a short for "Aleksandra"
:( its kinda too bad she is unstoppable by anyone if she really wants something. Making me remember the amount of Heavies killed by grenades and stickies in TF2 - high HP and damage won't help against powerful weapons or concentrated fire. But yes I like yellow/gold hair much more
