Alexander Haro is an ex tree-worker who got tired of getting sawdust in his eyes and falling from heights. He works as Managing Editor for The Inertia, and lacks the perseverance to write novels. He hates to fight but loves to argue, hates to talk but loves conversation, and hates mustard but loves custard - which is odd because they're both yellow, and texture-wise, they're pretty similar. He enjoys a bad movie as much as a good book, but loves a good story more than either, and will read anyone from Hemingway to Archie. He drinks a little too heavily, swears a little too much, and thinks his dog was a better person than most people.
