Biography


Appearance and personality


Alexandre is a pacifist, having protested in the Vietnam War. He also hated pizza before merging with Ronnie. After merging he picked up some of Ronnie's characteristics, such as obsession with pizza. Alexandre is also shown to have a childish and laid back personality. One example was when he stated he was "game" if Ronnie was also willing to try to separate. He is also shown to have a sense of humor, telling Ronnie they should not fight on their wedding day shortly before officiating Caitlin and Ronnie's marriage. He also believed that any relationship should be prioritized above everything else.[5]

On his first encounter, he is shown being cold towards Team Flash's camaraderie, asking if they were going to start chanting soon. However, after being rescued by the Flash, with the help of the team, he seems to have warmed up to the idea of the collaboration. This is even more apparent when he returns with Ronnie to help Barry. Not only does he help Barry travel back in time, he also helps a disheartened Eddie understand his role in everything that was happening.[10]

Alexandre is very articulate and speaks in a very cultured and academic way that is sometimes misconstrued as arrogant or sometimes impossible to even understand; because of this, he is generally incapable of referring to someone by their nickname, calling Ronnie "Ronald" (despite "Ronnie" being his actual and legal name), calling Jax "Jefferson" and everyone else either Mr. or Ms. followed by their second name.

In combat and as Firestorm, Alexandre is very brave, dangerous, and sometimes brutal, despite his personality when not fighting. He attacked Barry and tried to kill him by dropping him from the sky, out of anger for Barry and his team not leaving him alone as he told them to. Even without Firestorm, he was brave enough to fight hand to hand with Time Pirates and knock out some of them on his own. While co piloting Firestorm's body, he was willing to be part of killing in battle. In this regard, while he dislikes fighting, he is not afraid of it and will fight as a last resort or to defend himself.

In "Abominations", it is revealed that Alexandre has an irrational fear of zombies, extending to the point where he cannot hear or say the word without difficulty, and apparently has never had the courage to watch zombie movies. This becomes a problem, when Mick becomes a zombie and starting to attack him and Ray. Alexandre became overwhelmed with fear, but managed to overcome it, as evidenced when he faced Mick alone.

Alexandre, despite his academic nature, is often subject to his rather powerful emotions. Due to the trauma of having lost Ronnie, his original fusion partner for Firestorm, he often berates Jax on his recklessness. This is out of fear of losing another partner and having to face the prospect of telling Jax's mother that her son died. Alexandre is also a very caring man, who has taken issue when confronting his rather arrogant and self-centered younger self, who he personally verbally skewered, informing him that his wife was the most important achievement of his life. This shows how much Alexandre has changed over time.

While loving his family (i.e. his wife), Alexandre originally had reservations about becoming a parent, mainly stemming from how poorly his father apparently was to him. However, upon meeting his daughter Lily (who did not exist prior to temporal alterations), was overwhelmed by emotions. While he described from his new memories that he loves her, he initially tried to keep her at a distance in an attempt to convince himself that her existence was not real. However, upon meeting her and working alongside her, he came to fully accept his feelings for her as genuine. To which, as he continues to gain more memories of raising Lily, he becomes more fond and glad of his accident with the timeline. His love for her is so great that he attempted to hid the truth about her existence from the team, fearing that their knowledge of her being a time alteration would make them undo the changes. Overall, while Alexandre has a deep appreciation for maintain the natural course of events and not intentionally altering them, he is able to accept the unique benefits of accidental changes, showing that his compassion for others can go beyond rationality. To which, he proved himself to not be a hypocrite as upon learning of Barry Allen from the year 2056 altering time, he did not criticized the present Barry for his action

Alexandre is known for his extreme loyalty, often putting the safety of his loved ones above all else, often going to unique extremes in order to protect those closest to his heart. In his older age, Alexandre prioritizes his wife, daughter, and Jax above all else, with Jax being as close as family to him due to their bond of not only nuclear energy, but camaraderie that borders on paternal.
