Alexander Gallen (アレクサンダー・ガーレン, Arekusandā Gāren) is a fictional character from anime and manga series of Baki the Grappler. In the anime his name was changed to Andreanov Garland (アンドレアノフ・ガーランド, Andoreanofu Gārando). In the English dub his name is pronounced "Zeigan/Zargan".
Alexander Gallen is shown to be very confident and proud, due mostly to his inhuman strength and ability. He looks down on most, if not all, of the other competitors of the tournament up until his loss to Jack Hanma. He is also shown to be very patriotic, viewing himself and is strength as tools for his motherland. So much so that he was enraged after Jack bit his hang, damaging his fingers.
Alexander Gallen is superhuman strong. He can using a 100 kg axe and cutting trees with a single swipe. Alexander also can lifting the trees with his hands. He always wears a special titantium sackles to restrain himself. He could dig a near-meteor size hole and lift a cart full of rocks while going up a hill. Gallen is a quick learner. He became a world champion wrestler despite not practicing in any wrestling gyms. He also can using other types of combat, such as boxing. He is also shown to be very skilled in gymnastics during his fight with Jack. Gallen has amazing durability: he survived after Jack Hanma stabbed his heart using Gallen's ribs and surviced after being bite by an anaconda. In the second series of the manga, he nearly gets killed by Sikorsky, but probably that's because Gallen was wounded and could barely walk after the Maximum Tournament.
