Alec's innocence is a source of humor for the other characters, meaning he's great for punchlines. Being able to torture him, play off his natural innocence and muck about with his head... sure, it's kinda evil, but then, just a little, so are the various characters.
Of course, really, just about everyone likes to muck about with their friends, give them a hard time once in a while. It's the way of most relationships.
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
