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

Edgar didn't get turned into a beast. That was Beast. (XD) He has an actual name, but I forgot. :P Beauty is the one next to him, not Rosella.

I do think the rest of your theory is interesting though. :-\

His name is Prince Cocteau the Thrice Blessed.
I would like to know why he is a beast again after Alexander changed him back.

What if Cassima is maybe kidnapped and Alexander believes that the only way to save her is to become involved in the dark arts? And then those dark arts corrupt his mind and soul so he is no longer the Alexander we know and love?

Somehow I just can't see Cassima intentionally causing Alexander's downfall... ???

I still refuse to believe that Alexander is really changed. I just think we see parts of him we haven't seen. I hate to do this shameless-self-promoting thing, but you can check out my KQ3 story in Fan Fiction to see what I think of the darkness in his past. I do think that Angel's idea makes sense otherwise though. Alexander was shown so much hatred and no compassion growing up, and suddenly, there's this girl who he loves but, for some reason, she loves him too. Anyone who's even been in love can relate to that. :P He still probably can't grasp the concept, but he would give anything for her. The ends he would go to to see her smile are probably beyond anything any of us could imagine. This would make her a PRIME way to hurt Alexander. I mean, if you had nothing but pain and torment, and suddenly, you realized you had someone that made each day exciting and beautiful, someone you'd give your life for, and then someone tries to hurt her?

Two words: Watch out. :P

Alexander would do ANYTHING for her and would DIE without her. I've made some pretty bold posts about character, and this is one I'm not very sure about, but I'm almost positive all reactions to something happening to Cassima would be strong, so strong he'd barely be able to see anything else.

I've kinda of always seen as it as a sorta of combination of both... that there are dark parts of Alexander that we have not yet seen and will in TSL, and that whatever the events that occur in TSL are complicate them and make them much worse, bring them to the surface, resulting in him being tempted to do some things he would never have even considered otherwise. Makes me wonder who in the world Alexander will come out of all this being...

Maybe Cassima will become pregnant.  Alexander will have a vision of Cassima dying in childbirth.  So he learns the dark arts from Shadrack, become evil and murder all the guard dogs.  Then Graham will defeat Alexander in an epic battle, but Alexander won't be quite dead.  Alexander will be infused with evil magic and become Darth Alex.  Cassima will give birth to twins and die.  And Shadrack will rule the Galax...er....Daventry. >__>

I am n00b in this forum, so my ideas could be at somewhat misinformed. 

I saw the wallpapers and a couple of the forum post, and I this is my personal speculation but I read somewhere that each of the three main characters is going to have a challenge.  If I have to guess each challenge should correspond to the character itself.  Hence, Rosella being the most “immature” out of all the character is probably going to make the “mature” or hardest decision because it is what correlates to each character.

I see Alexander as a romantic figure, in terms that he is the long lost prince and the prince that rescues and damsel in distress.  Romantic people are portrayed in a good light however, not everything about them is good.    Romantic people tend to be very emotional and sometimes loose reason, Alexander being now in a position of authority cannot let his emotion get the best of him or hence he would lead his Kingdom in to disaster.  Cassima might be a part of this, because someone light and inspiration does not mean that is a positive light.  Remember Alexander fate is to redeem Cassima from darkness it does not mention how he accomplish, for all we know Cassima might still be surrounded in darkness or Alexander traded his place for Cassima.

The whole Master of Darkness thing does not necessary mean that he is evil,  remember Alexander had a dark past and he might have some dark tendencies, conquering this darkness might let him to master the darkness. 

If I was writing Alexander’s challenge for the next games I would have to believe that it might be more a internal challenge with his past and possibly Cassima darkness.  The question that I would answer depending how each person play is he strong enough to win against that darkness. 

In summary, I would have to say that Cassima role might be paramount to make Alexander face his darkness either by his past, his feelings or both. 

Either way I can’t wait for the release of the game to see the details.

Welcome Riveraeg!

You speculation sounds great! And it's a very good possibility that you're right. Now people, don't quote me! I'm speculating as well! But what he said makes sense, doesn't it?
