Almost nothing is known of Alex's past, and he prefers it that way - making people guess about him is one of his favorite pastimes. What is known of Alex is that he had been involved in investigating a story about a series of ritual murders in Manchester, and had discovered that the one behind the murders was not human. Soon after, Alex found the Illuminati and ultimately joined their ranks. Alex quickly took advantage of his knack for the supernatural as he battled several supernatural threats to help safeguard humanity.
Alex was also featured in the Tokyo Flashback vision along with Rose & Mei.
