Alpha's father was an addicted smoker and passed away from complications of smoking. His father had seven children and Alpha is the youngest.
Alpha's mother works as a housemaid to try to provide for the family. Unfortunately, her wages do not bring in enough income to provide enough food for her family. Alpha carries loads and forages for scrap metals to sell to have sufficient food to survive.
Unfortunately, Alpha had to stop attending school in Class 4 because his mother could not pay for his tuition, school supplies, uniforms and other school fees.
