“I love my family. They are my life. They gave me a life.”
Alec’s story is somewhat of a secret which only his pack is aware of. It’s a very sad story and definitely not one people like to hear about. This has made Alec the person, or wolf, he is. He’s a very strong person, always honest, definitely not afraid of speaking his mind if he has to, even if that might hurt the people he cares about. Alec loves his family, even Johnny, more than anything and he would literally do anything for them. Point is, he’s only related to Jane and Isabelle, his half-sisters but he still considers Matt, Emily and Johnny his family. His father, the alpha of the pack, knows this and there is no other reason why he’s the beta of the pack, the second in command, not simply strong mentally, but physically as well and he usually beats whoever dares to challenge him. Everyone thinks he’s not a violent person, and they are right, but when it comes to having a good fight, he would never say no, because to him, it’s a good way to take out all the anger he keeps inside. Alec’s body, much like most of the graced wolves, is in perfect shape and he has a lot of scars which remain as proof of all the fights he’s had, mainly with Johnny. However, some of them are not. Some of them are simply there to remind him of what his life was like before his father found him.
When Isabelle and Jane’s mother died, Jack, their father, found another couple, Marie, a wonderful white wolf. Marie had a mate though, so she couldn’t go live with Jack. Instead, they both let their human feelings get in the way, thinking that there would be no consequences but soon, Marie’s mate found out and disowned her. Marie took care of Alec until she was shot by some hunters, leaving him alone when he was barely four years old. He was found as a human kid in the middle of the woods and he didn’t have much to worry about hiding what he was, because barely a couple of days after being found, thanks to his golden looks and his bright blue eyes, he was adopted. Then he managed to keep the secret hidden for some time, until his adoptive father found out and locked him in the basement, occasionally visiting him only to beat him up. It wasn’t until he was twelve that he managed to escape and a couple years later, when he was just about to lose his human side, he found himself in Tala Springs. That saved him; Jack soon found out about the whole story and claimed him as his younger son. Everyone accepted him immediately, both Isabelle and Jane were pleased to have a younger brother to take care of and he soon befriended Emily, making the two of them inseparable.
Alec is pretty smart, he didn’t have the possibility to school and his sisters had to teach him how to read and write. He’s a very curious person, despite everything he’s been through, he likes to watch the humans, trying to understand the way they think and behave, finding them very interesting and different from one another in so many ways. The truth is that he’s more of a wolf than anyone else; having taken into account that he almost lost himself. Unlike any other graced animal, he doesn’t have such complex feelings, closer to the human ones. Adding that to the way he behaves sometimes and the simple work he does, the human inhabitants tend to believe he has some kind of mental issue or that he’s plain stupid, and they end up not paying attention to him. Alec doesn’t mind and will always have a smile for everyone. The people who get to know him better, find out he’s a real sweetheart, caring, playful, funny and very innocent. Still he’s not easily manipulated, he has a very strong will and he can be very stubborn.
