Not much is known about Alexander, other than that he is described as a "Legendary Wizard" who knows "Thousands of Spells". In recent years, it has been argued that he was actually in fact the world's first Sorcerer. This is due to the lack of his needing a wand or staff to cast spells. He was the first student of Allanon. It is believed that Max, Shakira, Jericho, and Leon reincarnated from him, as well as a mysterious fifth person.
