The chairman of the Paradigm Group and the son of Paradigm City's founder. He shows great contempt, hatred even, for the poor of Paradigm and the foreigners living in the city. For Alex, Paradigm's true citizens are those within the domes. Alex possesses an unquenchable thirst for power, and an "ends justify the means" philosophy. Despite being more or less the absolute ruler of Paradigm City, Alex harbors dreams of even greater power and will stop at nothing to achieve them.
