Alex’s father, happily working in an office, is a sweet and kind man, entirely unlike his son. Matthew always wanted the whole package; the wife, the kids, the house in the ‘burbs with the white picket fence. He was well on his way with a beautiful wife and son until Maxine decided she wanted more than this boring, little life in suburbia. He was broken-hearted, but ultimately wanted her to be happy. Matthew raised Alex himself, never remarrying, and did his best to give his son everything he wanted. Matthew knows that Alex isn’t much for settling down unlike his father, but he isn’t aware of the extent of Alex’s harsh ways with women not to mention all of the drugs and alcohol his lifestyle entails in New York.

MAXINE DAYSON (née Bennett);
Alex’s mother is perhaps more like her son than Matthew. She was unpredictable and exciting, keen on living life to it’s fullest. Maxine was an artist, a photographer, a writer, she had a different hobby and obsession every week and she was good at everything. She married Matthew after falling for his endlessly sweet heart only to give birth to a son. She loved her family, but it always seemed like there was more out there for her - something other than living in a gated community until she was half-way done with life and was finally free to travel. She wanted to do these things while she still had her youth. Maxine lasted five years before leaving early one morning, never to be heard from again. (FC: Marion Cotillard)
Jasmine, or Jaz, is Alex’s half-sister through his mother. Their mother, knowing that Matthew had always wanted a big family, allowed him to raise the baby girl as his own. Alex cares very deeply for Jaz, perhaps more than he cares for anyone else. Most of the time she’s annoying him and he’s brushing her off, but in the end he would do anything for her. They had something of a falling out when he moved to New York to pursue modelling, he never visited and hardly spoke to his family. That is until Jaz moved to New York to be an advice columnist at Annie’s.
f r i e n d s
ADRIAN LARSON ; ex-friend
Adrian is probably the one guy Alex would step aside for as far as girls are concerned. He owes him, after all, for whipping him into shape at the start of his career. They’re mates and Alex would grudgingly take a grenade for him, so to speak. // That is until the day Adrian slept with Roxie and then began battling him for Sarah’s affection. Since then Alex and Adrian have become somewhat sworn enemies, though mostly Alex pities his old friend.
CASSIE NEIL; friend
Alex’s sometimes friend, they love to make fun of each other and are often quite rude and sarcastic to each other. Alex finds her spunky and outgoing, always good for a fun night.
ELIZABETH BOWDEN; friend, bossman
Elizabeth intimidates Alex, which is rather rare. She has an odd way of yelling at him while at the same time being completely relatable. She adamantly rolls her eyes at his passes, but of course that never stops him, even if he does it just to watch her expression get all cute and snarky.
MATTY ZERON; friend
Alex and Matty have formed a love/hate relationship, however most of the time he’s the hate while she’s the love. She trolls him endlessly and he makes fun of her every chance he gets. She is his second sister and he cares about her a lot.
RACHEL ELLIOT; friend
They bicker, they banter, they argue endlessly. When they aren’t annoying the living hell out of each other, though, they can actually be pretty okay friends. He finds her clever and fun. Plus, she’s a stripper. Always a plus.
REINA SILVESTRI; friend
Alex has known Reina every since he first started modelling. He thought she was beautiful and kind of perfect, if not a little uptight. The perfect person to corrupt, honestly. He managed to get her in bed, albeit after earning it. Elizabeth excluded, he respects her perhaps more than anyone else.
ROSABELLA DUCHARME; acquaintance
Alex has worked with Bella all of once and they got into a little bit of a shouting match, though it did nothing to stop him from wanting in those barb wired pants. He finds her to be an angelic little person with a bitchy core, something all too fun to rope out.
ROXIE SINCLAIR; ex-girlfriend
Through a combination of quick-wit and constant rejection of his passes, Roxie has successfully put herself on Alex’s radar. He finds her to be an exceptional verbal sparring partner and they’ve become quite good friends. It’s surprised him how close he feels to her and he’s eager to make sure she feels the same. // After involuntarily cheating on Roxie, Rolex broke up. He still cares for her more than most, though their friendship seems to now have started from scratch. His goal is to become her friend once again.
SARAH KENNEDY; girlfriend
After meeting, followed by some torturous teasing on Sarah’s part, the two decided on a friends with benefits relationship. Alex became fond of her despite Adrian constantly trying to pry them apart, and eventually he found himself trusting her when most of his friends were busying betraying him or pissing him off. But she’s new to trusting anyone, so Alex is keen on proving that relationships are something worth sticking your neck out for.
SOPHIA DUCHARME; acquaintance
Alex spent the obligatory one night with Sophia after some back and forth, he thinks she is rather fun, perhaps the female version of him. It seemed he caused a ripple between her and her sister and is actually quite proud of that.
VERONICA HEAT; friend
After having met at Alex’s very first photoshoot (and her very first porno shoot) Veronica and Alex have grown to become friends. They argue as much as they banter, but Alex feels it’s good to have someone around to challenge his egotistical ways.
