Alec and Angel are both are from 'aristocratic' families. They are both ambitious, and they both want Tess.

The differences in the two men becomes obvious in their pursual of Tess. Alec takes what he wants by force, without thought of anyone else. Angel broods over asking Tess to marry him, and he pursues her out of love.
