"You are a creepy little dude" - D'avin
"Thank you" - Alvis
He is portrayed by actor Morgan Kelly.
Also known as Alvis the Penitent, he grew up as a tunnel rat in the mine access tunnels beneath Old Town on Westerley, later becoming a miner before joining the Scarback Monks. He is a member of the Scarbacks and a resistance fighter in the rebellion against The Company.
He resides in Old Town where he sometimes acts as a confidential informant for Dutch. He provided information to Dutch on Rolly Desh, a fellow Scarback and resistance fighter who stole vital data from the Company. He also gave Dutch integral information on finding the Leithian Vessel, Constance, who holds the last of the bloodline of Land Lahani, one of the Nine families.
While trapped in The Royale with Johnny and Pawter Simms during an acid rain, he helps Johnny locate Jakk for Pawter who is going through serious withdrawal. In exchange for Jakk he offers a blessing to a tunnel rat. He later observes that Johnny has an "interest in sacrifice" as he is always trying to fix things, even at his own expense. The two exchange moral philosophies which seems to peak John's interest. When the rain storm finally ends it is revealed that Alvis was waiting for a company informant in the bar when everyone got trapped.
Alvis is implicated in the Leith Bazaar Massacre, arrested, and imprisoned in Westhole Prison. He is sentenced to death for allegedly planning and executing the massacre, even after shown to be innocent by the Killjoy trio. He is able to escape prison through the use of Bead drones and leads the tunnel rats to safety in the bunkers below Old Town before the city is bombed.
After the bombing Dutch, Johnny, and D'avin helped get him out of Old Town. He helped them unwrapped the riddle of the Scarbacks involvement with Arkyn and the Red 17, spending some time at a monastery on Leith researching Scarback Scriptures and a particular symbol. Through his research of scriptures he came to believe that the Scarback practice of cutting and scarification was not performed as penance, but as a way to show that they had not been infected with the plasma by showing they could still bleed and scar. He also rekindled a previous romance with Dutch.
Alvis could be considered a masochist as a Scarback, though he tells Dutch that he discovered he was only into consensual pain. He gives off a wise air while retaining an understated sense of humor. He could be considered to be charismatic as he has several followers and is viewed as a spiritual leader. He is intelligent as he was able to work his way out of the tunnels of Old Town and become a leader for the rebellion.
Physical Appearance Edit
Alvis is of average height, athletic and moderately muscular. He has mousy hair with blond highlights which is styled in cornrows fixed down towards the nape of his neck. Alvis has light gray eyes framed by short dark brown lashes.
Dutch: "First time I've seen you out of your robes...well, not the first time." - 2x03: Shaft
Over the course of Season 1, it has been shown several times that they both, at the very least know each other. In Escape Velocity, Dutch even comments how the two of them have a long history, previous to the show. In Season 2, at the end of Shaft, there is an interrupted kiss between them. In I Love Lucy, the long history that has been hinted at is shown to be a sexual one as they kiss before appearing in bed together. Then in Heart-Shaped Box, they are shown to have sex and are seen once more, laying in his bed together, naked and talking.
- D'avin has several nicknames for Alvis, two being: 'Scarbutt' and 'Monkpants' (both being said in Shaft).
- Though Alvis appears to be right-handed (or at the very least ambidextrous), Morgan Kelly, who plays Alvis is himself left-handed.
- Used to be a Miner before becoming a Monk.
