Tyrant star Keon Alexander is another Belter, who leads a faction of the group and who is described as "wily and charismatic."

According to a Gizmodo interview, Alexander already had a link to the show before he got the part. According to actress Cara Gee, "The night that Dom got that phone call that we were canceled, we were all out for dinner, and I had just introduced Dom and my buddy Keon, who was consoling us about the show being canceled. He's like, 'Oh, sorry about your show, guys.' And then, of course, months later, the show is resurrected and Keon auditions for the part and is now playing Marco."
