CHARACTER INFORMATION

Nothing is known of his past, but Alphonse is a member of the Assassin's Guild. Little is said or shown about his mutant ability, if he was a born mutant or an enhanced mutant like many of the Assassin's Guild members is not known, but it seems to only effect his appearance. At the time of meeting, Alphonse worked for Orleans Cooper as a bouncer in his bar as a front and was handling all of Cooper's dirty work behind the scenes to keep the illegal deeds away from the bar and it's owner.
HISTORY BREAKDOWN

Remy first met Alphonse at the door of Orleans Cooper's bar, Club Orleans, where Alphonse was keeping up appearances as the bouncer of the bar. Remy had an issues about a girl being attacked in the parking lot and Alphonse not doing anything about it, leaving it to the visiting Remy to save the girl. Alphonse recognized Remy, but Remy did not know Alphonse as an Assassin at the time.

After Remy stole the Inficio Aquilus, a stack of black magic Tarot cards, Orleans Cooper was asked by Morgan Penrose to kill the person who stole them. Cooper refused to be a part of the killing, but sent Alphonse to take care of everything Penrose needed. Alphonse, already anticipating Remy going after the cards, sent out people to take care of the mutant thief, but they failed.

In attempt to finally rid himself of LeBeau and to get the Tarot cards, Cooper sends Alphonse and partner in crime, Stone, to take care of Remy personally and get the cards back. They go after Remy after the thief has stolen back the Tarot cards from Jack Jessup. Losing the fight against the two assassins, Remy is taken hostage by Alphonse. On order of Cooper, Alphonse and Stone torture Remy to keep him busy while Orleans Cooper uses the cards to work some black magic. Alphonse manages to leave just before Wolverine shows up to save Remy.

Understandable upset over hours of torture and the death of his old friend, Dan Downs, Remy recruits Wolverine to exact his revenge on Alphonse and Orleans Cooper. Knowing that Alphonse is a fan of the X-Men and follows their every move, Remy goes to various Assassin hang outs, attacking Alphonse's men as if they were various members of the X-Men. The plan worked, making Alphonse believe that the whole X-Men team was out to get him. Alphonse stole the Inficio Aquilus from Orleans Cooper and returned them to Gambit, hoping to get on the good side of the X-Men.
