Alan's name is synonymous with the word power.
The only thing equal to power, in his eyes, would be family. Phillip was always the golden boy, whereas Alan-Michael had to
fight for his father's attention.
When it comes to women in his life, they are
always secondary to the business. The one exception was Annie Dutton,
whom he truly loved. He even hid her in the Spaulding Mansion attic
when the police were looking for her. His loyalty to her ended when he
had her arrested for kidnapping his granddaughter, Lizzie. However,
when Reva was looking for her stalker and went to Alan for help in
finding Annie, it was obvious that he still might be harboring some
feelings for her.
Alan also had a rocky relationship with his
sister. For a long time, she blamed him for helping their father give
her son up for adoption. There was also the time that she discovered
her brother was manufacturing a biological weapon - she turned him in to the police. Consequently, he fled the country and then
stole the only evidence of his crime, to avoid being prosecuted.
He is a cold and calculating man who usually gets
what he wants, by any & all means necessary. He is a master at
exploiting the weak spots of others, to help get what he wants. For
example, in an attempt to break Jim Lemay and Beth Raines up, he took
Jim on a trip to Las Vegas. Jim was a gambling addict. There was
also the time he drugged Ross and then took pictures of him and his
car full of cocaine - all because he was jealous of the man.
Most of Alan's
children and grand-children hated him, although Lizzie, his grand-daughter,
has been pretty loyal to him.
When Philip went
crazy, Alan helped him skip town and made it look like he died. When Phillip
later returned, Alan really did not want him around because he was enjoying
being the head of the family and the company (he was also about to marry
Beth). Although he tried to get Philip committed, it didn't work.
The two eventually made peace on a camping trip.
When Phillip was
told he was terminal, Alan was the only match, even though he is not
Phillip's biological father. Alan insisted on being a donor, even though it
was very dangerous. The operation was a success, but Alan later died.
Everyone forgave him for his selfless act, and he made peace with them all
before he died.
