Alex (voiced by Alex Rigopulos) is a character in Broken Age.


Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Alex is the Dead Eye god, as his ship crash landed on Vella's planet after he tried to hack into the ship's controls.  He attempted to fix the ship, but he became enveloped with being called a god.  He later put himself in cryogenic stasis for 300 years as he became annoyed by the worshippers.  Vella manages to wake him and he attempts to restart his ship.  After Vella messes with two devices in the ship, she manages to create a death ray.  Since Vella helped wake up Alex, she and him use it to kill Mog Chothra, but the use of the ray puts Alex's ship at risk of a meltdown.  It is currently unknown if Alex's ship is having a meltdown or not due to the use of the ray.


Alex is a grown man that tends to stutter as he talks.  Because he was called a god, he most likely got a god complex as he was worshiped, but quickly became annoyed.  He is nervous as he talks to Vella and tends to ramble on and explain more than needed..


  • Alex's attire is similar to Shay's, supporting the fact that he and Shay come from the same planet.
  • He gives the name of his destroyed planet: Loruna .
  • Alex's ship is actually burried deeper in the ground, so it is unknown what it actually looks like. It was revealed to in fact be a mog ship not much like Shay's.
  • When Vella tells him that she's from Sugar Bunting, Alex asks if that's any way related to Steel Bunting, the name of Sugar Bunting before the town went soft as Brommel said, which is "full of badasses". This means that Steel Bunting was still around when Alex put himself into cryogenic containment.
  • When Shay and Alex meet for the first time, Shay assumes that he is seeing his future self, this might be poking fun at the fan theory at the time. Fans thought that Alex was Shay from the future. It is quickly revealed that it is not the case.
