Alan is an NPC introduced in the Trails in the Sky trilogy. He is Orbalship Corporation colleagues with Skip and Fabree, working at the ticket counter.
Alan's defining trait is his being lecherously towards women, enough for him to admit his job enrollment was to see girls arriving and departing from airships. Despite his attitude causes other females to roll their eyes at him, it comes in handy towards Estelle Bright and her party during the Mayoral Theft quest.
Regardless of Alan's bad habit, it eventually proves useful throughout the game's progress.
He asked Scherazard Harvey out once, but couldn't recall the daily events after being fed too much alcohol during their bar visit.
