Alex is a pharmacist.
When the Ridgeback Monster attempted to rob the pharmacy, he attacked Alex; throwing him through the window and onto the streets. When the monster makes a go for him, Jim Gordon arrives on the scene looking to subdue the monster and bring him in as part of a bounty. The pair get into a fight, with the imposing and strong monster gaining the upper hand. The fight ends when the monster makes a go for Gordon, only to carelessly walk out onto the road and get struck down by a truck.
