“Ah! So you're Sylvia... Pardon me for sayin' so, but you are fine!”
Alec (アレク Areku) is a character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. Alongside Noish, he is the first Cavalier unit the player receives in the course of the game. Alec's growths differ from that of Noish's; while Noish specializes in Strength and Defense, Alec excels in the fields of Skill, Speed, and Luck.
Alec originates from Chalphy, a dukedom within Grannvale, serving under the command of Sigurd. Alec makes his first appearance in the Prologue, alongside Sigurd, Noish, and Arden. From the conversations he shares with other characters, it is revealed that Alec is a womanizer - the stark contrast of his partner, Noish. He is predestined to fall in love with Sylvia.

As the Cain Archetype of Genealogy of the Holy War, Alec's stat growths will be centered around Speed and Skill, but less so in Strength and HP. However, as he possesses the Pursuit skill, he is thus more likely to perform double attacks consistently in battle, providing a more reliable damage output. Despite this, his offense is rather mediocre at best, as his low Strength and lack of other useful combat skills weigh down his usefulness.
Alec is best paired with Ferry, Raquesis, or Briggid. It is not recommended to pair him with Ayra, as despite providing decent stat growths, he offers no useful skills to pass on to he children. If he is paired up with Sylvia, Corpul and Leen will become immune to enemy skills, alongside having reasonable growth rates. Like many physical units, his magic growths are low so he is not the greatest of fathers for mages.
In Chapter 2, after Anphony Castle is captured, Alec may speak to Sylvia, and she will gain 100 love points with him.
In Chapter 5, if Sylvia/Briggid and Alec are lovers, she may speak to him, but nothing will result of it.
