Biography

When Alex was a young boy, his parents died, and he was adopted by their friend, Tom. In the new home, Alex became interested in bodybuilding and wrestling. His successes in this area are quite impressive, so the guy is also known as Awakened Talent.

Of course, Shadaloo couldn’t leave this mighty fighter unnoticed. F.A.N.G kidnaps Alex for some evil experiments, but the victim is not that easy. Alex defeats all the elusive foes, created in Shadaloo’s laboratory - copies of many prominent fighters, such as E. Honda, Dan, and young Ryu. Then, the guy starts destroying the equipment. To prevent the spread of poison gas, F.A.N.G abandons the idea to brainwash Alex and returns him home. First, the whole adventure seems to be a dream, but then Alex realizes that he has a scar on the cheek, which wasn’t there before.

When Tom gets injured in a fight against Gill, Alex decides to enter the World Warrior Tournament and avenge his adoptive father. After a few successful fights, he reaches the god-like man and defeats him. This power makes Gill puzzled and intrigued.

Meanwhile, Alex becomes interested in reportedly the best fighter in the world - Ryu. He wants to meet the legend and defeat him. The first thing eventually happens, but Ryu is obviously stronger. Alex can’t counter even one blow and therefore gets a boost in motivation to train harder and become a better fighter.
