|“||Dear, if I wanted to hurt anyone here... I would have done so already.||„|
|~ Alastor when Vaggie mistrusts him.|
|“||After all, the world is a stage. And a stage is a world of entertainment.||„|
Alastor, also known as the Radio Demon, is a major protagonist in the adult animated YouTube web series Hazbin Hotel.
A former serial killer in life, Alastor is notorious entity in Hell and one of its many overlords known for his frightening demeanor, extraordinary power and sadistic sense of humor. He has offered to assist Charlie in her endeavors of rehabilitating sinners into reaching Heaven, albeit, for his own amusement.
He is voiced by Edward Bosco in his normal voice while his singing voice is provided by Gabriel C. Brown.
Alastor is dressed in a dark red pinstripe suit with a tie. He has pale skin, a wide yellow grin and red eyes. His hair is red and brown and he has two little antlers on the top of his head. He also has a monocle and carries a microphone staff with him. His voice sounds like it's muffled through an old speaker and occasionally a laugh track accompanies what he says.

|~ Alastor to Vaggie.|
Alastor is clearly cruel, sadistic and extremely violent, but otherwise his behavior, mannerisms, and even his voice are similar to an old-fashioned radio announcer; for instance, when he refers to modern television as a "picture show" and refers to Charlie as "a charming demon belle". Vaggie describes him as "a violent monster of chaos", which is why he is dangerous.
Alastor likes to showcase his power and carnage for every sinner in hell to witness, hence his title the "Radio Demon". However, he is also fully aware that there are other demons and entities that rival him in terms of power and isn't reckless.
Despite being extremely powerful, he tends to get bored and lacks inspiration. He seeks entertainment which he still gets out of watching the suffering of others. But to achieve that, he is willing to have (or feign) a charming, supportive and kind attitude. He is always seen smiling and is creepily cheerful and upbeat all of the time, as he believes that it shows power and dominance over others. If a rival were to frown, he would see them as weak.
Alastor dismisses the idea that redemption is possible. Nevertheless, he still provides the hotel with a staff, and protects Charlie's business from outside threats. However, he does very little to mask his true nature and how evil he really is, as stated by his quote ''if I wanted to hurt anyone here... I would have done so already.'' In addition, his help is for his own personal amusement rather than Charlie's idealism. He has also expressed a desire to see sinners struggle in attempts to repent for their misdeeds, only for them to repeatedly fail miserably.
Alastor is asexual, as seen with him being thrown off and bluntly rejecting Angel Dust's offer of giving him oral sex. Despite this, he isn't above slapping people on the ass just to anger them for his own amusement, as he did with Vaggie.
He is known to be a gourmet, and as such, refuses to eat processed foods like canned meat, Easy-Mac, or ketchup. His favorite food is venison.
Alastor was born around the early 1890's to the early 1900's. Alastor had been mentioned to be a "mama's boy" and loved his mother dearly.
When Alastor reached adulthood, he became a cannibalistic serial killer and radio talk show host around the time radio first became popular, likely early 20th Century. The circumstances of his death have varied, as he was originally said to have been accidentally shot by a deer-hunter when burying the body of one of his victims, explaining his little antlers, but given this was said before the release of the first episode it is implied to be outdated, as currently it has been said to be due to a dog-related incident. When Alastor appeared in Hell, he possessed unimaginable power, stronger than that of any mortal before him. It was unknown what exactly led him to such strength. He wreaked havoc and committed atrocities only to broadcast them so that everyone could witness them. Eventually, despite only being in Hell a short time, he overthrew several Overlords who had ruled for centuries, assuming their territories and positions and becoming very powerful among the aristocracy of Hell.
After watching Charlie's promotion of her hotel from a bar, and liking what he saw with a passion, he showed up at the hotel stating he wanted to help her out. He doesn't think it's possible to redeem demons, but he is bored and wants to watch the chaos of them trying to reform and repeatedly failing unfold. He then summoned two other demons - Niffty and Husk - so the hotel has more staff and gives her tips on how to improve.
When Sir Pentious arrives to attack the hotel staff, Alastor uses his powers to flawlessly defeat him and destroy his ship. The group then head on back to the hotel with Alastor changing the sign name from Happy Hotel to Hazbin Hotel.
- Alastor was confirmed to be asexual on Twitter and is seen disliking Angel Dust's sexual remarks in the pilot.
- According to Vivziepop, Alastor dislikes being touched, although he appears to have no problem with touching others as he does so multiple times in the pilot.
- That being said, he may curb this disliking by wearing his gloves.
- In terms of power, it is stated that Alastor has many abilities that he keeps secret as he likes to be unpredictable.
- Faustie also states that Alastor has no desire for power.
- Perhaps shown by his old-fashioned manners and tone, Alastor dislikes modern technology that was created after he died. This is also a reason why he doesn't get along with Vox.
- Despite his sadistic personality, Alastor seems to hate rapists, or at least those who abuse others weaker than them. As seen in the comic A Day in the Afterlife, where he murders the owner of a butcher shop for trying to assault a sheep-like demon lady. Vizziepop also claims that he has a taboo against killing children, although he is willing to spank or otherwise harshly punish those who misbehave.
- Alastor is very similar to King Dice from The Cuphead Show!, both are evil, know the Devil, and love broadcasting their events through radios for people to hear. Also, they're both from very old eras.
