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

I think Cassima would SAVE Alex rather than break down and cry.
My namesake is the one you'll love to hate
Maybe it's because she's different--not the same
And such an identity satisfies my artistic brain...
I love King's Quest!

I hope they don't make her evil like the trailers seem to hint at.
KQ VI was my first sierra game and at a young age I had a crush on Cassima. I always seemed to put myself in the hero's shoes and mindset when I play games. LOL

Hehehe, no such foolishness affected me  ;) But then again real life is so miserable at times who wouldn't want to be a handsome young brute going away to an exotic isle to rescue a pretty lady princess you met for all of 5 minutes on your previous escapade!  ;)

As for the good guys sparing the bad guys; well, to be honest, what human being  of a hero in this day and age believes that the bad guys need to be spared; if a bad guy slays 7000 people and has every intention of killing more, then frankly you are saving the world from VASTLY more grief; you aint no murderer, merely doing the job that needs to be done! Thus, the bad guys can stuff their mind games up their....  ;D

She's Alexander's downfall, but it's not her fault.  I suspect that he loves her so much that he can't do whatever's necessary to save their kingdom.

Also, some of the pictures of Cassima seem to suggest that she's pregnant.  Maybe Cesar really means that the new baby will be Alexander's undoing somehow.

In any case, I chose the second option.  :P  Meh.

I think it was her first 3D Art-of-the-Week picture.  Now that I've taken another look at it, she doesn't seem as "big" as I remember.

I still stand by my baby theory, though; after all they've been through, Graham and Valanice deserve some grandkids! :)

I agree with Moodyblues. I don't think Cassima could be intentionally evil.

Couldn't it also be possible that Cassima is caught cheating on Alexander, then all hell breaks loose?   ???

Shadrack is an evil alien imprisoned in the Isle of the Crown dungeons.  Cassima falls in love with him.  After becoming pregnant with Shadrack's child, she helps him escape.  Alexander loves Cassima and her child so much that he can't do what needs to be done to save his kingdom.  Finally, however, he kills her as a traitor after she gives birth.  In his state of grief-stricken madness, he sends the baby away to live with strangers.  However, Shadrack finds the baby and raises him/her to become Alexander's traitorous advisor.  Shadrack's child corrupts Alexander, and soon the country is sent into disarray.  Finally, the repentant Cassima comes back as a ghost and kills Alexander to save her kingdom.

...oh, and, um, Cesar was joking.  :P

His love for Cassima clouds his judgement, or something similar I'm guessing :-\
