His younger brother is Dante. Alonzo was the lower elementary school chess champion, beating a third-grader for the title.
He comes to the Fairns' Fourth of July barbecue because his parents are considering becoming Wynter's emergency caregivers, where he plays a game of chess with Jesse who engineers the game to end in stalemate.
