He's recently graduated from Arcane University and is currently an apprentice to Raleigh. He lives with Raleigh and acts as an assistant to his various types of jobs (apprentices livin with their teachers is a common practice amongst wizards). He also does bounty-hunting in the meantime. He eventually wants to become a part of the military (which is what a lot of Evokers do).

Gurtog (dog people)
Alister was born to a normally nomadic Gurtog family. He has a huge family which includes his mother Martha and his father Edmund, and his siblings Morgan, Jeremy, Victor, Kelsey, Melody, and his fraternal twin Edgar. He grew up with a tight bond to his family, especially his parents (as is typical with Gurtog culture, there's a huge emphasis on family). Unfortunately Martha and Edmund died with Alister was in Arcane University. He's still having a difficult time getting over the death of his parents. He has a pretty fair relationship with Morgan, Victor, and Kelsey. His relationship with Jeremy and Melody are rather poor, though. Edgar is the other main character in the comic, so his relationship with Edgar will be explored a bit more in depth.
Alister is an skinny, gangly young individual. He has scruffy, reddish fur and bright teal eyes. His hair (fur on head... whatever you call it) is in kind of a messy mullet-type of style. He has batlike ears, right one having a notch bitten out of it. He has a distinct bump in the bridge of muzzle which almost makes his nose look almost like a Roman nose.
Alister is an overly-enthusiastic, hot-tempered bounty hunter/Evoker who has an extremely black & white sense of morality. He also has a tendency towards arrogance, as well. He can be quite annoying and have moments of immaturity. He's very bold, yet somewhat neurotic at the same time. He's a lot more prone to anxiety then what he wants to believe, and he often tries to cover up his fear, as he is embarrassed of being perceived as a coward. Extremely determined, he will often try to fight through his anxiety, even if it ends up harming him emotionally or mentally. Friendly, but socially awkward, he often thinks before acting. His morality is very black & white, but he generally has good intentions and a good heart.

See same setting as Raleigh Phillips
Alister's family started out as nomadic, which is a traditional Gurtog style of living. Finally figuring that a stable life would be a better life for their children, the Grimsette family settled down in Dead Turn (city), Colendia. Alister essentially grew up and went to Arcane University to study Evoker magic. While away, Alister's parents died during a transportation accident, which left Alister devastated. Alister would eventually graduate from Arcane University and go on to being an apprentice to Raleigh.
Alister joins Raleigh on his jobs, as well as doing bounty-hunter work. Alister mostly enjoys his work and often relishes bounty-hunting, even to the point where sometimes it can border on vigilantism.
