In the half-century that followed, Alexander devoted himself to cleaning up what mutants remained, earning him the title of Monster Hunter and Blessed Paladin. His piety and the many casualties of the invasion allowed him to rise swiftly through the ranks of The Ecclesiarchy, and it was no surprise when Alexander, considered almost a saint by the people of Nashakal, became Lord Cardinal. As a ruler Alexander prefers to lead by example rather than by decree, and often leaves matters to his Arch-Deacon, Maxwell Iscariot (who is known for his "shoot first, administer forgivness later" approach to leadership) while he tends to his flock in person, administering to the faithful personally and attending to the troubles of his people with either a gentle smile, or a swinging blade, as necessary. When Alexander does choose to make decisions and issue decrees he often does so in the same way he does battle, interspercing his words and actions with quotes and gestures from variuss religius texts, all the while beaming with an obvious euphoria known for putting even the strongest willed opponent off balance. Under Alexander's rule, heresy on Nashakal and nearby religious worlds has dropped considerably, though not without the unfortunate cost of many innocent lives. The example he sets is one many of the sector's Adeptus Ministorum leaders attempt to follow, a fact which, combined with the planet's many relics has led Nashakal to be dubbed "Ecclesiarchy Capital" of the sector, a title Ferrum Sanctimonia now seeks to claim. Alexander is a man known to tollerate no heresy, to stop at nothing to uphold the highest practices of The Imperial Cult, no matter how dogmatic, no matter how harsh, and no matter how far beyond his juristiction they may be. To those who are faithful he is everything they could ever hope to be. To those who are not, he is more terrifying than the very monsters he hunts.
