Rider's True Name is Alexander the Great (アレキサンダー大王, Arekisandā-daiō?), the King of Conquerors (征服王, Seifuku-Ō?), summoned as the child aspect known by the name Alexander (アレキサンダ, Arekisanda?) rather than the adult aspect known as Iskandar (イスカンダル, Isukandaru?). Known by many names, Alexander, Iskandar, and Alexandros, he was the young prince of the small kingdom of Macedonia in the 4th Century BC, said to have been the son of Zeus in many stories despite absence of clear evidence. He was known as a "peerless pretty boy" who was noticed by many sages, such as Aristotle, as a prodigy. During this period of his life, he spent much of his time training as a soldier, studying philosophy and political sciences, and reading great legends. While he bloomed with many talents, he approved of every and all possibilities, able to be called the "personification of possibilities" itself. He possessed a close friend, an "amazing man" who truly began to show his talents after Alexander's death, who would often drag him around rambunctiously in a manner to his later encounter with Taiga Fujimura, expanding Alexander's horizons thanks to his actions. Though considered beautiful, his self-recognition in being the child of Zeus granted him strength, reducing his boyish looks over time. He later encountered the Gordian Knot, cleaving the rope with his sword and taking the divine bulls offered to Zeus by King Gordius as his own for use with his chariot.
Starting with succeeding the throne of Macedonia in Greece at the age of twenty, his conquest quickly subdued the neighboring countries and became the leader of Corinth. His eventually eyed his ambitions towards the straits, seeking to extend his reign into Persia. Sweeping through from the far west with his army, none underestimated it, rumors of its might spreading through countries long before the army's arrival. As his army's great morale overwhelmed even the most devoted of warriors, they were even more shocked when he spared them, told them of his goal, and returned dominion of the lands to the nobles. He exclaimed to them that: "My goal is the end of the world. My destination is the furthest border of the East. I want to behold Oceanus with my own two eyes. I want leave my footprints at the beach beside that endless sea.” Though they thought his words folly, many were rekindled to the dreams of their youth, setting off after Alexander to join his conquest. During the conquest of Persia, Alexander came to view Darius III and his Athanaton Ten Thousand as a worthy rival, blocking Alexander's path numerous times. Due to Darius' immense height, after finally conquering the Persian Empire, Alexander required the footstool of Darius' throne to be swapped with a table to properly sit on it despite his own great height. This played a part in history recording Alexander as being short.
After Persia and with a goal of the most extreme eastern edge of Asia, they marched through Egypt and through western India during the "great eastern campaigns." Marching without end, they crossed boiling deserts, passed over chilling, snow-capped mountains, and forded billowing rivers. They fought savage beasts and fought for their lives through numerous unknown foreign tribes displaying alien weapons and battle strategies. Although an innumerable number of soldiers died, they kept their great morale to the end, holding proud smiles and listening to the sounds of the ocean they sought in their hearts, despite never reaching it. In the end, he brought about the largest empire in history to date and became the "great king who built the era known as the Hellenistic civilization." He reached the success of a great hero in just ten years after beginning his conquest, but soon died after living only a period of thirty years. Following his death, the empire split into four warring factions that "quickly disappeared into the sands of history."
Rider is summoned in his form as a child as his time as the young prince of Macedonia in the 4th Century BC. He was known as a "peerless pretty boy" who was noticed by many sages, such as Aristotle, as a prodigy.
Rider is an "innocent child who loves the epic poem 'Iliad' from the bottom of his heart." Summoned in this form, both his figure and mentality are that of his youth, but he has not lost his memories of his life. Those from after his adolescence are "somewhat lacking a sense of reality". As he is the "embodiment of the mentality of one who attempts to take his very first steps", he can be said to assist his Master's own steps, but he will not be pleased when he notices that the "demise of human history means nothing but the closing of even his own possibilities."
Rider's Personal Skill is Rosy-cheeked Adonis and his Noble Phantasms are Bucephalus and Zeus Thunder. He wields a short sword with a small blade on the pommel, rather than the Spatha of his Adult Aspect.
