Compared to most paladins, Alexey was highly unusual. His deranged contempt for demonkind led him to believe that the punishment for rebellion must exceed death. He committed despicable acts against the guilty, mutilating them to the degree where they would refuse reincarnation. Such was his fanatical method for granting "salvation".
Alexey is a musculine name of Greek origin; the meaning is "defender". A variant of Alexis (English, Greek, French, and German).
