Towerpedia:Alain Johns

Alain Johns is a fictional character in author Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series. Clever and sensitive, Alain is strong in the Touch, a form of psychic ability.

Because of his stocky build and quiet nature, Alain is often mistaken for a dullard. Nothing could be further from the truth. Quiet and introspective, Alain is known for his thoughtful consideration of problems and ability to sense when something is going wrong. He is naturally a diplomat and is often the voice of reason in volatile situations.

Alain is fiercely loyal to Roland, much more so than he is to Cuthbert. He is often the butt of Cuthbert’s jokes, and is generally a step or two behind his ka-mates.

Alain is accidentally killed at the battle of Jericho Hill by Roland and Cuthbert, who mistake him for an intruder into their camp.
