Alexander, also known as Alexandr, is an esper in Final Fantasy VI who can be acquired as a magicite.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Alexander is a large, towering robot, with the appearance similar to that of a castle or a fortress. It stands upon what looks like mist or clouds.

Story[edit | edit source]

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Alexander's magicite appears in the King's Room in Doma Castle after Cyan defeats the Wrexsoul, a monster formed of the countless souls lost in an ancient conflict that latched onto Cyan due to his despair. Wrexsoul's Japanese name (アレクソウル, Arekusouru?, lit. Alexsoul) suggests it is associated with Alexander: short for Alexander's Soul. Wrexsoul is sitting on the throne, and the Alexander magicite is found on the throne after its death. There is a possibility that Alexander might have become corrupted and became a monster during/end of the War of the Magi.

Alexander appears in the Anthology version's FMV, where it proves to be highly effective against the final boss. Its attack not only hurts Kefka, but also detonates his tower.

Spoilers end here.
