Alex is a free spirit. In the past, we would have called him a hippy. But he has to work, so he’s a nerd at ESP, a computer technician. Alex has a reputation for slacking off. Even when he’s taking a break from his job, he still manages to capture a psyche-scan which has massive implications for his bosses.
But Alex couldn’t care less. His main form of entertainment is teasing Hogstein. Their banter keeps him from losing his brilliant mind. It’s all good-natured fun. And he’s a likable kind of guy.
However, Alex has a bit of a chip on his shoulder about criticism. When challenged, he will always bite back. He knows he’s good at what he does, and he doesn’t like anyone being in authority over him.
(He would be the scribe taking down Jesus’ words in his interview with Pilate.)
