What do they mean by Cassima being Alexander's downfall?

She will betray him to Shadrack
She will somehow lose their kingdom to Shadrack
She will sacrifice Alexander to save her kingdom
Cesar was joking. Cassima's awesome and couldn't be anyone's downfall
She loves Alhazred and will help him escape. Making Alexander kill her as a traitor, feel horribly guilty and go mad. :P

Cassima, his shining light, his queen, his downfall

Now let's get down to business--Cassima.

I really want to know what y'all King's Quest junkies think about Cassima.

I think she is going to turn out to be independent, strong minded, but gentle. She is the perfect wife to Alexander, but she's probably pretty spirited, too. Not your typical queen!

I wonder...is she going to have an important role to play in KQIX? I'm anxious to hear what your opinions are! ???

In my opinion, there seems to be quite a bit about Cassima that we don't yet know. I've got a feeling though that she will play an important role in KQ IX.

Have you seen the new main character wallpapers?

Cassima & Alexander are perfect together.  They even share pretty common pasts.  Both were part of royal families, but taken away by evildoers and forced to work as slaves.  While Cassima was saved by both Graham and Alexander, Alexander freed himself.  I can't reveal much about KQIX, but Cassima does affect Alexander's journey through the game both positively and negatively and because of this, I'd say she plays an important role.  8)

Hmmm...interesting! We don't know that much about Cassima, and I'm glad we're going to get to know her. I wonder how she helps Alex. She's probably his emotional support--but I hope she does more than that, too. I'd like to see her tackle some evil doers! Maybe she had good swordsmanship skills.... I wonder how she and Rosella get along? (That's not a rhetorical question, by the way!!! :P)

I totally agree! Maybe this time, she'll rule the  Land of the Green Isles single-handedly while Alex adventures... ;)

I hope to whatever deity I hold dear that Cassima is a powerful female character. I have no idea if this is unusual for a bloke but I LOVE strong female characters; especially if they are level-headed and exude effortless authority but retain a "fun" side as well (or at least still appear to have a human streak; no melodrama permitted!)  ;D

Indeed, I am popular with many of my lady friends who like the fact that all my own books feature similarly commanding female leads.  ;)

If Cassima turns out to be a limp-wristed t*** then I will formally plant virus bombs onto her character designers desktop!  ;)

I couldn't agree more! No wonder you're popular with the ladies!  ;)

Cassima should be a pretty strong woman character. I just wonder what she does in the game...

P.S.: IF you like strong women characters, read "Piratica" by Tanith Lee or "Wicked" by Gregory McGuire.

Here's friend...glad I am not alone! (I will be posting a few excerpts of my work shortly on the fan-fiction thread...you may like it if you like your strong female leads, this lady has the weight of...well...everything on her shoulders!)  :)
You will have to be quick mind, there is a time limit on their existance within the thread to protect my intellectual property!

Anyhoo, enough of my canvassing(!)  :-X

I really do hope that Cassima is strong enough to hold her own; as much as she loves Alexander (I assume!) and supports him I don't want her to go all permanently soppy if he "disappears," and if she is a negative influence, I hope its not something malicious or she is so desperate to help him that she doesn't take his situation into account holistically and does something more destructive than anything else.

Thanks for the book referances BTW. I will have to take a closer look!  :)

I had a feeling you were a writer and I was "write" :D XD

Any chance of letting me know the titles?  ;B

Yeah! I would like to know the titles, too!

I will be very angry if Cassima does something "swoony" and stupid, though I doubt she will. Maybe she senses that Alexander is in such deep trouble that she can't help him alone, so she intelligently seeks help from someone really powerful... :o

Titles eh?

Well...they have yet to be published so you won't be able to actually find them...yet!

I have to run this through with my people first (just in case the titles themselves come under the intellectual property protection acts I work under!)

Will let you know later!  ;)

Thanks Shadowfax!  ;D

Maybe Cassima will employ the help of the druids on the Isle of the Mist. Or even BETTER--the Oracle on the Isle of the Sacred Mountain. I wonder--is the Oracle in the game?

It would be really cool, though, if the druids worked some nature magic to locate Alexander or make the weather come to his aid... :D

Yeah, I know, but he only controlled a small-scale weather storm. I think it would be interesting if Cassima and a band of sorcerers conjured El Nino or someting.  ;D

Maybe. Or maybe Alexander is being held captive in an ice prison by a tribe of faceless and omnipotent necromancers with no hope of escape. Then, a lightning bolt from Cassima's conjured storm comes down and strikes the prison, disintegrating it, causing confusion, and allowing Alexander to escape unharmed.

Or it could be for a completely different reason  ;).

Any suggestions, KQIX peeps?

Sorry for double posting, but there's an exciting new Cassima development: on the wallpaper, it says Cassima is Alexander's "guiding light...his downfall." What's that supposed to mean?  :o
