Physical description (a picture can be enough)
Write a character biography. (at least seven sentences)
Growing up in the foster system, Alec Hardison knows two things: computers and technology. A geek of the first order, Hardison (as he is usually called) handles the team's electronics and monitors the team's communications through modified conductive Earbuds. He also modified the team's cellphones, which the team can use for a variety uses. While not a grifter like Sophie, as a hacker (and through his foster grandmother), Hardison has developed excellent social engineering skills. Always quick with a joke or snide remark, his somewhat lack of maturity has caused the team problems, but he always comes through in the clutch. Hardison's natural charm allows him to get along easy with most people. His relationships with team vary. He has special relationships with two members of his team. With Eliot Spencer, it's more of a friendly rivalry similar to that of brothers. With Parker, it's more akin to a crush. Whether Parker truly reciprocates remains to be seen. Hardison is not to be underestimated whether in cyberspace or the real world.
It is through Hardison's expertise that Leverage Consulting & Associates gains the technologies around the Earbuds and the Cell Phones. Hardison is also the handler of the Black Van or Lucille.
Social Network engineering
Limited Pickpocketing skills (while the team was held prisoner inside a hospital, Hardison was able to lift a cell phone from one of the doctors, he was also able to use a claw to lift two sets of car keys from U.S. Marshals pockets.)
A pedestrian appreciation for art, as he is an amateur painter, but confesses that he is not well versed in "Dead Guy Art".
Improvisation, Hardison was an attendee of Second City in Chicago.
Plays the violin.
Grifting (with the help of Sophie Devereaux)
Forger (as seen in "The King George Job")
Lack of maturity and focus
Completely useless with firearms
While Hardison can throw a punch or two, he is the least physical of the men on the Leverage Team. He is even out matched by Parker.
