Alexander the Great
I would like to introduce myself to all. My name is Alexandros III Philippou Makedonon, and I was born is 345 BC in Pella, Macedonia to my mother, Olympias, and her husband, King Philipos II. I came into this world by the grace of Zeus on the same day the Temple of Aremis at Ephesus was destroyed by a fire. That was an omen for my life
My obsession is the delicate art of war, which I was trained in at a young age (having killed my first man at 15), and schooling myself on the attributes of the great cultures I encounter in my journeys across the civilized world.
However, all this would hold no meaning for me without my greatest love and truest friend, hephaistion. You are the endless flame that alights my soul.
As for the question regarding predetermination... it is my belief that the moment my mother became impregnated with the power of Zeus, my life was chosen for me. However, I feel that there were many paths I could have chosen to take within this forest. I could have been nothing but a conquerer and uniter. My spirit would have allowed for nothing less. There is no other True Love for me but Hephaistion, as he is the Patroklos to my Achilles, and the other half of my soul. In that way, I believe we were bound together since birth, and will be until the day we die.
