Greedy and power-hungry, Alain will stop at nothing to achieve his final objective: completely control the New Orleans criminal underworld.

Given his French surname, it is very likely that Alain was born and raised in New Orleans. Aside from this assumption, very little is known about his life prior to the events of Gangstar: New Orleans. At some point during his early adulthood, probably in the early 2000s, Alain joined the criminal underworld of New Orleans. He presumably worked his way up the ranks until he became a street-gang underboss in 2016 or 2017. At some point in time before February of 2017, Alain acquired The Hallowed, a popular nightclub, which he began using as a front for his criminal activities.
Gangstar: New Orleans
On Mardi Gras of 2017, following a massive raid by the New Orleans Police Department, the five largest crime lords of New Orleans are arrested, leaving the city’s underworld all but leaderless. Alain, an ambitious and cunning man, uses the chaos as an opportunity to gain control over the entirety of the city, establishing himself as king of the New Orleans underworld. In order to secure the city, Alain calls in the player to help him eliminate threats and expand his criminal empire.
Alain embodies the stereotypical sleazy nightclub owner. He wears expensive clothing and rings, drives expensive cars, slicks his hair back, and always keeps a handgun at his side. Alain can almost never be seen without slacks and a button-down silk shirt, the latter of which he leaves partially unbuttoned at all times. Something of a car fanatic, he owns several antique muscle cars and a super-car or two (an example is the Kiger SS).
A shallow man, Alain thinks only of his own personal gain. Although he is loyal to his friends and associates, Alain will always put his own well-being before the well-being of others. He is a ruthless individual who remorselessly kills civilians, thugs, police officers, and anyone else who stands in his way.
