Alexander Torus is a general in the US Marine Corp, master air-combat pilot, and friend of Kevin "Ace" Koss in the Gold Digger universe. He flew with Kevin's father "Black-hawk" Koss in an air group called the "Knights" along with Lance Garrison. He has looked out for Kevin ever since Kevin's father died saving Torus and Lance. Torus pilots a modified A-10E7 Warthog, which can reverse its engines to fly backwards. He is intimidated by Kevin's girlfriend Penny, but still thinks Kevin should marry her.
