Exarch Alyosha is a member of the Creed of Samothes. As an exarch, Alyosha is a high-ranking official in the church but has no permanent parish of his own. He was previously assigned as a missionary in Rosemerrow, but was called to Velas to act as standing leader of the church in the city following Prelate Lucius's death.
Alyosha is a very slight individual in his late thirties, weak-looking with features that are thin but youthful and bright. He has light hair and light eyes.
Alyosha's name may be an allusion to a character from Fyodor Dostoyevsky's The Brothers Karamazov. In the novel, Alexei (nicknamed Alyosha) is the youngest of the titular brothers, a novice at an Orthodox monastery, whose faith contrasts with his older brother Ivan's atheism.
