Alwyn John Dalton (a traditional Welsh name passed down through the family) was born in Cardiff, Wales to an English father and a Welsh mother, and the was the first of three children for the Dalton family. He was followed by closely by sister, Bronwyn and then the baby of the family, Romeo. By the time they got to Romeo, his name was chosen more for the family's passion for theatre than anything traditional and the poor bugger got saddled with a Shakespearean name, though he would eventually use this to his advantage when he began his own career as a stage actor.
The Dalton family was always well-to-do and the kids were raised with the best of the best. Their father, John, was the financial adviser for one of London's West End theatres, and met her mother, Catrin, while on a vacation to Pembrokeshire, where Catrin was working in the hotel where he was staying. They had a very old school and traditional romance in which they kept in contact constantly via letters, phone calls, and visits as frequently as they could be made. They fell in love, and over two years of courtship later, they were married on the beach in Pembrokeshire, and Catrin made the move to London to join her husband there. A few years into their marriage, and after the birth of their first two kids, they made the move to the US, where John was offered a job as the finance director for a Broadway theater, partially at the suggestion of Hamilton Drake, with whom John had worked extensively on the West End before his own moved to New York.
Life was never difficult financially for Romeo and his siblings, who grew up surrounded by the theatre life. Bronwyn was never meant to be an actress, but she adored costuming, and started her theatre career behind the scenes working as an assistant to the costume director of a Broadway play being produced by Hamilton, who happened to be her best friend, Caden Drake's, grandfather. She and Caden had grown up together in a close-knit theatre community, and they were extremely close to the point that everyone thought they would end up together, a fact that became a joke between the two of them when they admitted to each other that they were both gay. Alwyn was more the black letter kid on the family and went on to become a lawyer, but still sticking close to family tradition, he represents actors and actresses entering into entertainment contracts.

Alwyn studied Law and Ivy League college, Columbia University, in New York and graduated with honours and was Valedictorian of his graduating class. Ironically, he was the least likely to end up in the serious "black letter" areas of law. Criminal, Family or Corporate Law bored him to tears but he did it to get through, and always had plans to work in the legal side of the entertainment industry... an area absolutely dripping with legal contracts, injunctions, and other legalities. It fascinated him, and he was lucky to score a job with Aiden Preston-Lewis company, then Lewis & Co, but now Preston-Lewis & Co since Aiden got married to husband, Patrick. Alwyn's job is to oversee the legal contracts of Aiden's PR and Agency clients, and it means he works with some of the best in the business.
He's great at what he does, and the hunger for the job had him learning a lot, and quickly. Theatre was really the family business on many levels, but he didn't have the creative talent his sister and brother did. He is proud of them both for what they achieve and fiercely protective of them both. He's probably Romeo's biggest fan, and if anyone tried to fuck him over on a legal level, Alwyn would be out for blood.
Alwyn's bisexual and has been previously married, to a childcare worker called Lucy. But their marriage became rocky when she was desperate for a baby and Alwyn wasn't sure if he was ready to be a father. They tried, though... a lot, and Lucy turned into a monster with ovulation times, accusing him of drinking too much, eating badly, and not doing whatever it took to have a baby. When she finally fell pregnant, he was happy and got excited having adjusted to the idea and getting emotional seeing the baby's ultrasound images. However, the baby died in-utero when Lucy was six months pregnant and she suffered a breakdown. Alwyn stuck by her, but ultimately the marriage broke down, ending in divorce, and she moved back home to live near her family in Canada.
The subject of babies is a raw one for him, and he's not sure if he'll be able to face all that again. As a result of the emotional time, Alwyn came to be diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), the only way he seemed able to cope was obsessive control over even the smallest things in his life. It is controlled by medication now, but he has had a few relapses since his diagnosis where life becomes tough to cope with, but his family are always right there to support him through it. But to his advantage, the condition makes him very particular in his job, and ultimately why he's so good at what he does.
