Alex has a great respect towards Griffin and is the only human that he trusts completely. He sees Griffin as a brother, but is willing to question him and listen to what he has to say even if he doesn't agree with him. He feels that the two of them are more then enough to extract revenge on the Red Lantern Corps. Griffin is the only member on The Dawn that knows about Alex's struggles with his inner demons.
Unlike Griffin Alex doesn't consider the other members of The Dawn as "family". Unless he is forced to he spends most of his free time in his room rather then out with the other members. He has no respect for them and often talks down to them.
