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

It's seemed obvious to me that the "his downfall" part referred to Leisure Suit Larry, who quite literally falls down after Cassima throws him out the window of the Castle of the Crown while rejecting his lecherous advances.

You violated the rule!  :o No suffers in this thread! And it has to be Alexander becuase it's HIS QUEEN, it's not likely that Larry lives in the kingdom of the green isles.

BUT...and I just had this thought...what if it's not referring to King Alexander? What if it's referring to someone who is a subject to the King and Queen of the Green Isles? *raised eyebrow*

Maybe the "peasant" is Connor, in which case I doubt that we'd care about his downfall. *shrug*

...Unless, of course, Connor receives some major character development.  I see some potential in him. :)

Hey, just wanted to say I like Cassima but Rosella still remains my favorite. I will soon be back working on my fanfictions. I need to get to the part where the bad guys ruin everything, then the heroes pick themselves up to go on a quest to save the world.......Please read my fanfics. I'd also like to make a manga/comic book time thing...I'm writing the story for it, need to draw pics. of course it's my own story.

Maybe Cassima is a victim? Perhaps a bad guy threatens to hurt her unless Alexander do such-and-such bad things to save her.

Where'd you get that? ??? But IIRC, he was knighted or something, and thus he might travel with Graham / The Royal Family for protection.

She means, Cassima would be Connor's queen only if he moved to The Green Isles... which is all the less likely, now that he has a job as the captain of the royal guard in Daventry :P

That was according to Romancing the Stones. Though its possible and likely that TSL isn't following that idea at all, as they have stated they are trying to stick closer to the official story, rather than the remake. ...or has it been specifically mentioned that TSL has decided to have Connor knighted in Daventry rather than still living up in Realm of the Sun as the Champion Eternal, True Upholder, Enlightened One, etc etc.

I know that according to TSL team they have him married to Sarah. But don't know if he moved back to Daventry or not?

Well, ya, King's Quest is on Earth. Daventry is very old city from a long time ago. It's in ruins now and people aren't quite sure exactly where it used to be. There are some archaeologists searching through the ruins, they think they know its Daventry. But its somewhere on Earth."-Roberta Williams http://kingsquest.wikia.com/wiki/File:Daventryisearth.ogg

It could be talking about Abdul. Cassima WAS almost his queen, and it was through her help that he was defeated by Alexander. (Though those guard dogs sure took a long time to climb those stairs after Shamir was gone, though he might have subdued them beforehand.)

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.

Actually, Abdul wasn't a wizard. He was just cunning and had a genie. He didn't seem to be too horrific a murderer, he only killed the King and Queen, he wasn't commiting genocide or anything. Eh. He's not very dangerous without any power, anyway. He's pretty much stuck in that dungeon unless Shadrack gets him out or he gets his hands on something powerful.

I kinda liked Cassima. She was certainly more uh... adventurous than Valanice. But I thought Rosella was much more... uh... practical? Cassima seems to me to be such a wimp. I hope they don't have her do anything like concocting a tropical storm with the druids or whatever. Not because she's a woman, but because it just doesn't seem like something she'd have been able to do in KQ6. She stabbed the vizer with a dagger from behind, that doesn't take much...eh.

For some reason killing the King and Queen seems almost just a tiny weeny itsy-bitsy bit treasonous doesn't it? :P
