Alex is the Everyman. Not gym crazy, but quasi-athletic. He keeps his hair long, but in a ponytail. He is neither too preppy nor too grungy. Alex tries to at least keep up with the latest fashion trends as much as he can, though. Alex is not a complete otaku type; he's one part regular guy and one part otaku, and relies on his pal Sandy for his anime fix. Between the two of them, Alex is the ringleader, and the one who is more sociable and presentable in public. But when it comes to otaku-related pursuits, he defers to Sandy's obsessive expertise.
