Alexei "Lex" Balthazar Viktovich  is Lavender's next door neighbor, he also babysits for her and her siblings and has for the past three and a half years. Lex enjoys music and is actually an accomplished concert violinist despite his age. He currently attends Redwood Private Boys Academy, the best private high school in the state, but he is there on scholarship as his family has very little money. Hence why in addition to his studies Lex works as a babysitter to the Swallow kids, two other families and has a part time job as a smoothie joint so he can save up as much money as he can to help his family and to save up for college. He's planning on getting some scholarships hopefully as he'd like to attend a really good school. His biggest hope in the future is to be able to buy his parents a nice home somewhere.
