Alan A'Dale, also known as Alan Dale, is a folk-rock musician and a member of Robin Hood's Merry Men. Alan is an introvert, quiet and secretive, which fosters a sense of unease and distrust among his fellow freedom fighters. A man of few words, Alan's speech reflects the soul of a poet and philosopher. He's given to off-beat but often brilliant insights that hint at a deeper intellect than most of his peers know. Alan has a quirky sense of humor (usually gallows humor), prone to laughing at inapropos times, which his friends find off-putting.
