Alex is a minor character from Golden Axe. He is a friend of Ax Battler, Tyris Flare and Gilius Thunderhead that appears injured in the beginning of the game, using his sword as a walking stick. A LongMoan appears and hits Alex several times from behind before running away when the heroes approach. Before dying, Alex informs his friends that Death Adder has captured the royal family from the Southwood Kingdom.
