Alex Beckinger is an antagonist in Dinomentis also known as Trapped as a Dinosaur. He worked for Professor Theodore Trilo until his death.
Alex's past wasn't revealed in either the RP or the book. In truth he has no interesting backstory. His creators described him as "one of those kids who pick on other kids just to feel better about themselves."
Role in Trapped as a Dinosaur(RP)
The character of Alex did not appear in the RP version but there was a character which inspired his creation. The character was known as Dameon. When the Host of the RP stated he needed an antaginist, the creator of Dameon volunteered. However Dameon proved to be too powerful and uninteresting. His creator ignored any attacks on Dameon and made sure everyone knew about Dameon's attacks on the other characters. Eventually everyone else in the RP ignored him and the character disappered. In a way Dameon's creator was indirectly responsible for the creation of Professr Theodore Trilo as the host of the RP became unsatisfied with Dameon and had to create his own antagonist.
