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

That she helps Alexander to the point where he'll do anything and she makes the wrong decision killing or hurting him. Although maybe the "his downfall" means that she is the reason he looks so gooofy with his hair all spiked up...

I like Cassima she wasn't your classic damsel in distress, she stabbed the Vixer afterall! :) It will be very cool to see how this story develops :)

Egad did that hurt!

Although I have to admit that I like Cassima very much as a character. She seems to be a strong-willed young woman. ;D

Could Cassima be in cahoots with the Black Cloak Society? I mean, she was about to marry Alhazredand whe was captuered by Mordak (however you spell that), who is also evil... maybe she married Alexander to get close to the royal family of daventry!

Hmmm...I doubt that. Maybe she's being used without her knowledge! How would that work, though?

Exactly! (Even if they have to alter name/locations...I think we would understand who Princess "Casio" is!)  ;)

Besides...(in a very quiet voice) I am working on my own KQIX project (along with several hundred other things...but still!)
Will be posting my survey polls later this week to help me create a better game for you all...how I would release it in the face of all this controversy over the "official" KQIX remake I have no idea but still...

Anyway, for the moment we can still speculate on our ideal KQ Cassima!

I have stated my views already...lets hear some more!  :)

I agree!

Now what elements of Cassima's personality are your favorites, KQ peeps?

I particularly liked how she was brave enough to stab the Vizier to save Alexander, and yet she was compassionate enough to spare the villain's life.  :yes:

Yup admirable I have to admit...especially since in the story he murdered her parents!

(Although I am pretty sure there would be a fair number in the Crown's upper echelons who would quite happily have ensured the Vizier was hung/drawn/quartered for his treachary)

What has me suspicious is that the trailer, captions for screenshots etc, all seemed to indicate that (at least from the point of view of the other characters) something tragic had happened to Alexander. Yet, Cassima isn't seen to react as one might expect.
Once the votes are read, the decision is final. The person voted out will be asked to leave the Tribal Council area immediately. I'll read the votes...

But how can you tell anything about her reaction from those? ???
And just because they don't show her break down and cry doesn't mean she doesn't care, maybe she's simply being brave about it. After all, she's the queen! she can't just snap and demoralize her people even further in their darkest hour.

OR...what if the clips that have been shown don't show her reaction to what's happened...because maybe the clips are from before whatever is going on with Alexander actually happened?

Could be, Alexander and Rosella also appear in the trailer in what seems to be happy "before" pictures. But I'd like to think Cassima's scene on the balcony there is where she gives the speech from the online audition, telling her people not to lose hope after their king has gone ;)

I bet that cassima will be kiddnapped and replaced by a double, that would how she would be alexs downfall... or maybe she gets kiddnapped and alex has to save her thus dieing himself...


BTW

I didn't like how she spared vizier alhazred in the 6th kq, i mean the man is a wizard and a murderer he might be able to get out and murder more people.

The good guys HAVE to spare the villains whenever possible, or the bad guys will use that "you're just as much of a murderer as I am" mind game. :P
