Jacob - Those are some type of leaf blemish and not a cause for concern. It is not evidence of a fungus or any other disease. Enjoy your Alocasia!

My eyesight isn't the greatest due to cataracts but when viewing the first photo of the leaf with dark brown spots and yellow halos, I thought it might be a bacteria or fungal issue. If it were my African Mask (Alocasia 'Polly') I'd sprinkle some cinnamon powder on the leaves. Cinnamon is a natural ingredient that I always have handy; I keep a small container of it in my gardening supplies to sprinkle on plant cuts, orchid leaves that have a fungal infection, etc., etc.
