Alex might be from Canada, China, Hong Kong, some random couch in Newfoundland, or maybe Jupiter. It's not really clear. What is, however, is that Mark Setrakian is his spirit animal and his imaginary robots enjoy a similar level of success.
At any given time, 9/10 active or upcoming tournaments will probably be organized by this guy, or 0/10 when he inevitably burns out and ragequits. Additionally, Alex has probably taken advantage of more exploits in seven months than most people do in seven years. In fact, most of ARC is still waiting to see what it'll look like when he makes a robot with wheels that doesn't bend at least one rule.
He was senpai to Drew at one time, but sadly that may be evolving into more of a Darth Vader-Obi Wan sort of thing nowadays.
One of The Monsterworks' more reasonable designs. >
