Part in the Story[]

The Black Contractor[]

S1E1 Mao attacks Alain

Mao attacks Alain.

Alain is involved in a mission along with Shinoda Chiaki, Jean, Louis and Paul to steal secret information from the National Institute of Science by illegally accessing the computers through PANDORA's core system. After Louis is killed, he is present when Shinoda wakes up after being captured by Jean. While they are talking, Paul notices something and Alain comments that he saw nothing. Jean notes that only Contractors can see a Doll's observer spectre just as the power is cut off. Shinoda escapes and the three French agents chase after her, but they lose her just after a black cat leaps at Alain's face.[2]

S1E2 Hei kills Alain

Alain is beaten by Hei.

Along with Paul, Alain later finds Shinoda with Hei and pursues them through a restaurant. However, they lose Hei and Shinoda and Alain looks on as Paul performs his obeisance. The three agents later arrive at the train station where Shinoda had stored the information. They casually follow Hei and Shinoda from there until Hei ditches Shinoda. They rush after Hei and catch up with him. When Shinoda appears, Alain tries to shoot her, but the shoot is blocked by Hei. As Hei lies on the ground, Alain fires three more shots in to his body and questions whether Hei could really have killed Louis. The is surprised when the same black cat that previously attacked Alain tells him that Hei's jacket is bullet-proof. Hei takes advantage of him being distracted to quickly defeated and kill Alain. Paul then uses his ability to make part of Alain's body explode in an unsuccessful attempt to injure Hei.[1]
