Alec is a character in Mother 3. He is the father of Hinawa, the father-in-law of Flint, and the grandfather of Lucas and Claus. Alec resides in a log cabin on Mt. Oriander. He joins Flint temporarily because of Claus' disappearance. He suggests using the Drago Fang on the Mecha-Drago if Flint had not used it. He also has a limited supply of healing herbs which he can use to heal Flint.

Some time after the Pigmask Army modernizes Tazmily Village, Alec's cabin is destroyed by lightning, supposedly to make way for the "Oriander Observatory". Alec is moved to the rest home in Tazmily.
