Alec Bings"The boy who grows down"

'Alec Bings", is a boy that Milo met on his adventure.


While everyone grows from the ground up, Alec grows from up to the ground as he ages. He really wants to reach the ground, but he says that he must get very old first. His head is at the height he would be if he were an adult. Alec thought Milo must be really old since he is already touching the ground and then tells Milo that around there they all grow like that. However, he replies saying that he grows from the ground up (like all of us do). Alec thinks that system is funny. He takes them through the Forest of Sight and they meet Chroma, along with his orchestra (who play the colours). Alec can also see through

hat's in front of them, as all his family have some sort of power to do with sight.

Alec gives Milo a telescope as a parting gift. His ability was that he can see through the things ,he is not the main character but he is a significant one . He helped Milo between his journey and take him to illusions and told him about illusion he also take Milo to reality and drive into reality's history . He also give Milo a brief description about everyone's point of view
