Alan is a short, African-American teenager with short black hair. In Alien Force, he was wearing a white undershirt and grey pants. His Pyronite form looked almost indistinguishable from Heatblast, especially when he had his father's Plumber badge on his chest.
In Omniverse, Alan has big black dotted eyes, earrings and longer hair. He wears an orange hoodie that has a basketball in the middle surrounded by orange flames. His Pyronite form is noticeably smaller and instead of wearing his badge, he has a crack on his chest that is shaped like a flame. His eyes are connected to the fire on his head and he has lost a bigger chunk from his forehead.
Alan was actually born as a human who was taken to the Null Void by Servantis. He used Kevin's powers and a Pyronite to create make Alan a hybrid. He, along with Manny, Helen and Pierce formed a group, named Amalgam Kids and they were used by Servantis to do "nasty things". After they failed in their ultimate mission, their memories were completely wiped by Servantis.
Alien ForceAlan debuted in Everybody Talks About the Weather, where he's being hunted by local authorities to be questioned about a recent strain of arson cases. Ben, Gwen, and Kevin get involved when the sheriff takes Alan's Plumber's badge and accidentally triggers a distress signal.
After a short aerial fight with Jetray, they both decided that the best way of getting the sheriff off of Alan's back was to figure out the source of the arson cases. Ben was able to figure out that what was earlier thought to be crop circles being burnt into the corn fields was actually circuit boards being built by DNAliens. They also discovered that when those circuit boards create weather towers, and then begin to lower the temperature, which makes it snow. Working together, Swampfire and Alan were able to destroy the towers. Alan agrees to help the sheriff hunt down the remaining DNAliens, but states that Ben can call him for help at any time.
Ben later called Alan in War of the Worlds where he assisted in the attack on Los Soledad where the Hyperspace jump gate is being built. After the war, Alan joins Helen, Manny, Pierce, and Cooper as pupils under Max.Above and Beyond, Alan and the others try to rescue Max when he is attacked by Ben aboard a Plumber research station. Alan is attacked by Big Chill. Alan is the only one of the Plumbers' Helpers that is not defeated by Ben and it is only due of the intervention of the rest of the helpers. He later became crucial to restraining Humungousaur using his fire powers in tandem with the draft created by Helen's speed to trap him in a wall of fire. After sacrificing himself, among the others, to prevent the station from crashing into London, Max arrives and explains that the whole scenario was really a training exercise to see if they are ready for the Plumbers' Academy, which they passed with flying colors.
Ultimate AlienAlan returned in Absolute Power: Part 1, being attacked by Ultimate Kevin. Alan put up a good fight, but Ultimate Kevin defeated him with a very powerful electric shock and stole his Pyronite powers. He was almost killed by Ultimate Kevin but was saved by NRG. He reassures Alan that he's going to be fine, but Alan denies it as the others had been killed. Ben then promises to stop Ultimate Kevin.
At the end of Absolute Power: Part 2, Max confirmed that Alan and the other Plumbers' Helpers had their powers back.
OmniverseIn Weapon XI: Part 1, Alan is first seen working on his car, when Kevin and Argit greet him. Alan was less then happy to see him, because of their last encounter, but when Swift attacked and Kevin saved him he was ready to listen. Kevin used Servantis' power to make Alan remember how he, Kevin, Helen, Manny and Pierce first met in the Null Void. At Kevin's Garage Kevin got out a Null Void Projector he had stashed away Alan wanted to come with him, but Kevin made Alan remember how he was turned into an Alien/Human Hybrid by Servantis and how he got his memories erased. That just made him want to come with Kevin even more, but Kevin told him to stay and take care of Zed. When Ben, Gwen and Rook came with the other Amalgam Kids, he told Helen and Manny everything. They went to the Null Void to help Kevin, but Servantis brainwashed him, Helen and Manny into destroying Ben but was defeated by Alien X.
In Weapon XI: Part 2, just as they were about to destroy Ben, a mutated Kevin grabbed Servantis, destroyed the crystal on his forehead and used Feedback's powers to free them from his control forever. Just before he left the Null Void, he felt like his real life just started.
