And who says that you can't modernize his hair for a fan game?

Well, lots of people.

Lol.

Personally, I liked his slicked back hair.

Me too.

Someone said in another thread he looks mean in this picture. I like it better than the low-res one. Or maybe it's because I'm biased towards that version of the game. It is the one I grew up with, after all :P

spoiler-ed

Awesome of you to spoiler-wrap that for the rest of us. Not something one might wish to read in an Alexander Appreciation thread.

It probably has something to do with Mannannan. *Bah, can't spell the bloody wizard's name* That second of the second episode scared and shocked  me. I about jumped out of my chair when I first experienced it. I wonder how in the world he's a wizard again... we were given the impression the cat spell was permanent.
Mannnannananananan?

Actually, I always associated the lols with him with the Batman theme song.

Mananananananananan MANANNAN! Manannan... Manannan....

Then I picture him in a mask and cape and totally lose respect for the poor guy. Manannan gets a short straw The only scary thing he gets to do is kill you if you do anything dubious when he's awake :/

Anyone seen any cool fanart of Alexander out there? :) I'm sure people have a metric tone on their hard drive, somewhere

KQ VI was my first, and favorite, KQ game. Got me hooked. I also though Alexander was the bomb. Add on that he's tall, dark, and (incredibly) handsome, a slave-become-Prince-then-King, a dabbler of the magical arts, and very intelligent.  No words to explain how much I like him. I'm totally crushing on him.

I NO RITE!! He's so perfect <3 *swoons* He has so many things which are relevant to my interest in male secondary/lead characters. He's played a heavy inspiration in my novel I'm writing in some of my male leads :) Infact- I even mention KQ6 specifically as an influence on my influence map. KQ6 and a few other things hit me off on my romance for medieval fantasy <3 I TOTALLY go for that genre ^^

I fully accredit the KQ series (particularly VI) with starting my fascination with narratives and story-telling, mythology, and classicism. I doubt I would have minored in Classics, visited Rome, or chosen my particular thesis topic if it weren't for KQ VI. It sounds a bit ridiculous and cheesy, but KQ changed my life.

Oh, thank you :) It's an image I drew as a request via my art thread here... What was the prompt... I think it was AAlexander and Cassima having a loving moment together. I was listening tho Chopin's 'Rain Drop' at the time though and it inspired me to draw this, and coloured it in copic :) Her's the full picture

Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

I have such a soft spot for Alexander :3

Don't we all! :smitten:

I think the thing I love most about Alexander is that he's not an obvious hero--at first, at least.  He's a humble, good-hearted, lonely slave boy who grows into this amazing man.  He rescues his sister, his kingdom, and eventually the love of his life.  He's quietly determined and amazingly passionate--and his whole "tortured soul" thing is a total meltable trait!  If a guy can be man enough to admit that no, he's not okay all the time, that makes him all the more lovable to me.  It's like, "Let me love you! Let me help you!" ;)

The fact that he's very, VERRRRRY attractive is just an added bonus. ;D

Yeah- I think I'd still really like Alexander's character even if he wasn't a handsome Prince :) Other characters I like have the same qualities, but not the looks and I still love their characters :) Gumshoe from Phoenix Wright has similar dedication and passion for those he loves, but he's not handsome- I still wan to leap into the game, and cuddle up to him and his hard done by self cause he's so sweet when he chuckles ^^ I use to play the game where I finished on a question that made Phoenix leave with him happy cause I liked him all happy and cheerful ^^
