In the midst of a bitter war, King Philip's wife, Olympias, gives birth to a son, Alexander. Reared amid intrigue in the palace, he proves himself on the battlefield at Chaeronia at the age of 16. After his father's death under mysterious circumstances, Alexander declares war on Darius III of Persia and goes on to become master of the known universe.

Despite its sci-fi sheen, this is a surprisingly faithful retelling of the life of Alexander the Great based on a novel by Doomed Megalopolis-creator Hiroshi Aramata. Featuring a techno-magic based on Pythagorean solids and vast alien armies, it bears more resemblance to Dune or Stargate than a classical biopic. Character designs from the Korean-born Chung contain echoes of his work on Aeon Flux, and some of the visual conceits (such as a swimming pool in the shape of the Mediterranean) are simply superb. The historical Alexander is known in the Middle East as "Iscander," a name appropriated for Star Blazers. Released in 2003 in the U.S. by Tokyo Pop under the title Reign: The Conqueror.
