His character :

Alastair easily fascinates his entourage. A born seducer, he influences others by his attitudes, his temperament, his actions and even his words. Sometimes too emotional, he is perfectly able to control his feelings whenever he wants. Dynamic and combative, he does not fear changes. On the contrary, these are spice up his life and amuse him. Bubbling with ideas, he does not hesitate to make every effort to carry out his projects. His ambition and creativity are his assets to reach the summit.

Alastair will have an early sense of humor. By his taste for contact, he will quickly multiply his friends. Flirty and happy, he will be good company. This child will prove authoritarian. His tendency to give orders rather than to obey should be tempered, so that he does not abuse his authority.
