Game of Thrones the Targaryen Conquest
The Monster On Wings
Physique: Alexander is built lean, with a muscular frame. His appearance is decisively plain – not handsome, even a little homely, and very far from impressive.
Artifacts: A red cloak soaked in his former dragon’s blood, that protects his head like a helmet, but also casts a coat of darkness so thick over Alexander’s face so that none can remark on his humble appearance. His followers claim that the cloak reveals the soul of whoever wears it – and thus, for Alexander, whom they believe was born without a soul, the cloak shows only pure, unyielding black.

Targaryen children are given dragons when they are young, they are raised with them and the two become constant companions. Alexander Targaryen was one of those children, but his dragon grew to be scrawny and weak-willed, cursed with deformed wings. He was envious of his siblings’ dragons, who grew to great size and power.
There was a dragon, however, so large and vicious that when it laid an egg, the dragon protected it with great vigor. All knew the egg would hatch a dragon of great power and many used all of their strength to retrieve it, but the dragon refused to yield up her young.
Alexander did not use strength, but rather cunning and cruelty. He slaughtered his own dragon, wore its bones as a cloak and drenched himself in its blood, then got close to the mighty mother and stole its precious egg. When it hatched, Alexander had a new companion, much mightier than his previous dragon and he named it Afanc, after the steed of an ancient Valyrian demon.
And then, Alexander, the monster of House Targaryen, had wings…
He is followed by several small barbarian tribes, who have come to believe that Alexander is an ancient demon, reborn to spread destruction. His three favored henchmen are his general, Thaddeus Bloodbringer; his alchemist, Octavian the Cold; and his whore, Arianna of Ghis.
