Personality and Relationships

Overview

Alec is a carefree and fearless teenager. He lives by no rules and does whatever he sets his mind to and will attempt to accomplish it with a grin on his face. He care little about important people he comes across and will not hesitate to take them down without a care in the world of what might happen after words. another part of carefree attitude is his tendency to unwittingly poke fun at an opponent's most sensitive trait without a care to how they react. There are little things that can scare him and will face any dangers that come his way. Whenever something is said to be dangerous or looks scary, Alec would get anxious and would want to see it himself despite how everyone else would feel. When facing someone more powerful then him Alec will not flinch or get scared, he will stand up to them no matter the cause.

Another dominant traits is his apparent lack of intelligence. Alec can easily be amazed by the simplest things, and can be confused by complicated situations. Mostly why Alec can't read a simple map or have absolutely no skill in navigation. He seems to not understand anything used by a grown up such as thinking that a cup of booze is expired soda from the bad taste. He does seem to have little knowledge of medicine such as which herb can help heal a minor injurie but doesn't have to a clue for anyone with sever injury. When attempting to think of a plan in any situation either in battle or in a serious problem, he is seen to strain himself and thinks that he is going to hurt himself from too much thinking. Also Alec's designer to form a crew tends to make him ask complete strangers who he has just lay eyes on if they can join his crew with no knowledge if wither or not their hostile

Despite his lack of intelligence, its been proven that Alec's instincts and behavior is similar to that of a wild animal's,  like when he knows who he has to fight before he even gets to the battle. Even his fights show this as he relies on his instincts and counter attacks. This compliments the way he views the world. He is most often seen smiling, except in a fight where he is forced to use all his power. Alec also seems to rarely change personality wise. Because he views the world in a straightforward and simple manner, he is occasionally the only person who can see past events that have taken place and realize the true goal, yet at other times he can fall into the simplest of traps.

He is, however, very creative and a genius when it comes to fighting, such as how to use certain types of tricks and make it his own style, or to figure out an enemies weakness by realizing the events that happened in their fight. He does have a habit of holding a grudge even in dire situations, such as enemies he fights that crossed the line and old enemies that harmed his loved ones. He does make an enemy named Kaizo but views him as a rival rather then an enemy so he has no anger towards him. However he tries not to hurt civilians and people he likes, even if they intend to do harm to him, preferring to run from them than fight. In battle, Alec has also shown signs of intelligence, high tactical and innovative skills. He can easily adapt to hindering situations to give him the upper edge of the fight. also has a habit of saying things with a lot more weight and (occasionally) wisdom than he realizes without even thinking or meaning to.

Alec's simple attitude and naïve comments during fights are often mistaken by his opponents as poking fun at them. Due to this, many of his opponents lose their cool and charge at him in anger. While he is reckless and naïve, Alec is calm and and focused on serious situations that puts anyone he cares for in danger. In many cases, the opponents fail to understand whether Alec is serious or just playing during fights due to his bizarre actions. Alec, however, has maintained that he is always serious during fights. In most cases, once he starts to fight he maintains a serious attitude and is only seen laughing and cheering once he defeats the enemy or is certain the enemy will be defeated.

Despite Alec's carefree and naïve attitude, Alec seems to be quite distant towards personal matters involving himself, such as his past who he refuses to tell even if someone asks and just say "Its nothing to worry about." However when the time comes he will explain his past and other personal manners.

Above all else Alec is an honorable person and doesn't get himself or anyone else involved in a personal fight or duel. At these times Alec shows both remarkable restraint during the battles, and rage when something or someone outside the battle is involved, especially if it is a person he considers a friend.

Alec personality is like that of a child's, in the sense that he tends to go to the extremes. He can either be extremely greedy, especially in cases of food, who his crew is, and adventure; or extraordinarily selfless, going so far as to virtually sacrifice himself to avenge or protect his friends, crew, and family. This childish mentality of his allows him to get to the root of the problem, and allows him to figure out the most simple way of solving it.

Adventurous Spirit

Alec has an extreme thirst for adventure, which he has stated is the main reason he wants to become the King of the Pirates, having the belief that the King of the Pirates would be the one on the entire ocean with the most freedom for adventuring. This is one of his main reasons why Alec left his home island Saver Island to become a pirate in the first place. His thirst for adventure is fueled for his desirer to see new and unexplored places he has yet to see and learn about it through first hand experiences. Because of that face Alec refuses any information that is offered to him about these location before heading to them. He also has no intention of trying to learn what or where One Piece actually is until he finds it himself, and once stated he would quit being a pirate if his crew tried to find out, not wanting to 'go on a boring adventure'.

Because of this adventurous nature, he tends to avoid taking 'the easy way out' at times.

Alec has no actual sense of caution and in fact, has been known to literally laugh in the face of danger and walk into potentially harmful situations with a massive grin

Carefree and Optimism

Alec approaches situations with a carefree attitude, almost never taking anything seriously. In spite of being captain, Alec does not take his duties very seriously, never being harsh or enforcing standards on his crew.

While Alec can be serious when it comes to fighting or personal matters when it comes to loyalty, Alec would rather have fun or relax such as enjoying banquets. Alec would even have one even in personal situations, as Alec cared more about the banquet despite approaching enemies coming.

Instincts and Ingenuity

It has been stated more than once that Alec's instinct and behavior are similar to that of a wild animal's, like when he knows who he has to fight before he even gets to the battle. Even his fights show this as he relies on his instincts and counterattacks, which complements the way he views the world.

He is most often seen smiling, except in a fight where he is forced to use all his power (and sometimes even then). Alec also seems to rarely change personality-wise, because he views the world in a straightforward and simple manner. He is occasionally the only person who can see past events that have taken place and realize the true goal, yet at other times he can fall into the simplest of traps.

However, he is a genius when it comes to fighting,

In battle, Alec has shown signs of intelligence, high tactical, and innovative skills. He can easily adapt to hindering situations into an attack.

Alec also has a habit of saying things with a lot more weight and (occasionally) wisdom than he realizes without even thinking or meaning to.

Intelligence

Alec is also able to think one step ahead in most situations, making him extremely clever compared to other people.

Simple-Mindedness

One of Alec's dominant traits is his apparent lack of intelligence. He can easily be confused by complicated explanations having a need for it to be more short and simple for him to understand. He is clueless about everything that is going on in the world, he sometimes gets made up ideas of things that are totally crazy it leaves people speechless and makes them wonder if he's being serious. He can also be easily amazed by the simplest things. He gets amazed at various abilities of villains, often yelling out "amazing" with stars in his eyes and around his head. He get fascinated by the unique appearance monsters and will ask weird creatures to be his friend. In addition, during long and complex explanations of something, his head will release steam and eventually explodes. When attempting to think up a plan, while he will manage to make some logical sense at first, he is begin to strain himself and notes that he is going to feel sick from too much thinking.

He can also be simple minded such as a plan with complicated explanations leaving him to his original idea of a charge tactic even if its clear a bad idea. To compliment Alec's naïveté and straightforward attitude

Fearlessness

As a person with the middle initial D., Alec shares the common trait of not fearing death.


Leadership

Alec also shows significant leadership skills

which at other times he usually lacks and therefore has his captain duties done by another crew member. An example of his leadership is usually present at the most dire and serious times. He is capable of getting 2 organizations who have been fighting for years to work together to achieve a common goal. He also fulfills the burden of being captain by not holding back when he has to fight a member of his crew in order to uphold his role as captain of his crew members. His crew members also listen to his orders without question when he is serious, all respecting his position and will follow it to the letter.

Charisma

Despite all his peculiar traits and habits, Alec's most defining part of his personality is the ability to make allies out of absolutely anyone.

Loyalty and Selflessness

Respect

Compassion

Unlike other pirates, Alec has immense kindness, although he desires to become Pirate King, he is willing to put aside his goal to help others in need.

Emotional

Alec is not afraid to show his emotions.

Righteousness

Alec, despite his carefree nature, has a righteous heart and respects the difference between right and wrong. He completely despises cruelty and wickedness and will assault anyone who indulges in such actions, no matter what the consequences may be. However, he tries not to hurt civilians, especially the people he likes, even if they intend to do harm to him, preferring to run from them instead.

Confidence

Alec is extremely confident in his abilities, willing to challenge anyone in combat as he took on the strongest people he ever faced.

Running Gags

Gluttony

Like other D's so far, Alec is also an immense glutton despite his puny appearance.

Mercy

Alec never kills any of his enemies (no matter how cold-hearted they are); instead, he frequently sends the enemy flying, knocking them out or beating them until they have reached the point that they are almost near death.

Despite his passion for fighting, Alec also generally refuses to fight someone that he does not personally consider an enemy, preferring to either talk it over or run away from the confrontation.

Aggression

There are some instances where Alec seems to enjoy defeating his opponents.

Humility

Another dominant trait of Alec is his humble nature: he does not brag about the powerful foes he's defeated in the past, though he's not above about claiming that no one has ever beaten him in the past (which is not true, having been defeated many times by various opponents during his lifetime). He has even admitted he does not have the skills like his crew does, like being a swordsman, cooking, navigating his own ship.

Stubbornness

Alec can be very stubborn at times, whether in his desire for adventurous routes, recruiting the desired member into his crew, or upholding a promise.

Relationship

Saver Island

Unknown friend

Alec holds special memories of a certain women. Although her name was not mentioned and her face hidden he apparently cares deeply about her. That women seems to be one of his motives for not giving up a fight and push forward for her sake.
