Featured Article

Alexander "Alex" of Tirragen (pronounced TIHR-ah-genn) was a Knight of Tortall during the first half of the fifth century of the Human Era. He went through page training around the same time as Alanna of Trebond and was part of her circle of friends. He was a skilled mathematician and fencer. Duke Roger of Conté chose Alex for his personal squire, distancing Alex from his friends. Alex drifted away and became part of the Conté Duke's plot against the Crown. Alex was deadly with a blade, and was the last fencer to best Alanna at swordplay in single combat. He was killed by Alanna during the Coronation Day Battle in 439 HE.

Alex was often described as being dark and slim or slender. It was also said that he had a "cat-like grace". He was secretive and closed, ambitious, swarthy, overconfident, and obsessed with winning.

He appeared in three of the Song of the Lioness novels as Alanna's friend and later antagonist.


Quote of the Moment
Thom: "I don't want to be a knight! I want to be a sorcerer! I want to slay demons and walk with the gods--"
Alanna: "D'you think I want to be a lady? 'Walk slowly, Alanna. Sit still, Alanna. Shoulders back, Alanna.' As if that's all I can do with myself! There has to be another way."
Alanna and Thom of Trebond after their father told them they were sent away[src]
