His Grace Lord Sir Alexander Christian Olivier "Al" Helliker, 2nd Archduke of South Adammia KCM KOV KOF KD LLB is the former fourth Prime Minister and current Attorney General of the Empire of Adammia, and is the Archduke of South Adammia.

Helliker has been involved in Adammia for a long time, as one of the earliest citizens. His experience as a law student has made him one of Adammia's leading legal experts, and he is the Emperor's official legal advisor. He assumed the leadership of the Moderate Party in 2017 and subsequently became Prime Minister. After a year in office, he lost the 2018 election and became Leader of the Opposition. In September 2019, he defected to the Storm Party.

Non-micronational life

Alex Helliker is a law graduate of the University of Birmingham.

Micronational career

Helliker was notably the first person to become a citizen of the Empire of Adammia after Emperor Adam himself, being granted citizenship on 14 April 2013, the day after Adammia was founded. As the only other citizen at the time, he "ratified" the original Supreme Directive on 19 April 2013. As an online friend of the Emperor, Helliker was a member of the highly-trusted Ordo Vladius. After coincidentally arriving to study at the same university as the Emperor, Helliker was first appointed the Emperor's legal advisor in November 2016. Helliker and the Emperor later decided to become housemates, renting a house which is now known as Serkatia. On 28 October 2017, the Empire of Adammia Act 2017 gave Helliker a seat on the Ruling Council, and he was invited to serve in the provisional Cabinet for three weeks until elections could be held, acting as Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance. Soon afterwards, he joined the Moderate Party and took over as the party's president after Emperor Mother Jayne Belcher stepped down from the role.

In the November 2017 local elections, Helliker was elected Councilor of Serkatia, and his original seat as Duke was given to Colonel Sir Zak Maguire. He was compensated by being appointed Archduke of South Adammia. He then stood in the November 2017 National Election and won, becoming Prime Minister.

In February 2018, Helliker became the first person in Adammia to become a member of two chivalric orders, as a member of both the Ordo Vladius and the Order of the Meerkat. In July 2018, he was appointed as the Empire's first Attorney General.

In October 2018, Helliker ran for re-election to a second term as Prime Minister, but lost by a landslide to Sir Juliano Saunders of the Storm Party. He then became the Leader of the Opposition. Helliker's year-long term in this position was one of inactivity, with some believing that he had lost interest in Adammic politics, and he stood aside as leader of his party in August 2019 in favour of Sir Charles Michael.

Helliker returned to the forefront of Adammic politics in September 2019, when he sided with Storm leader Lady Worthington on a cross-party basis in her accusations against the Emperor as part of the data privacy scandal. On 19 September, Helliker published the Helliker Report in his capacity as Attorney General, accusing the Emperor of violating the GDPR Compliance Act 2018 and committing criminal negligence, before defecting to the Storm Party. The Emperor subsequently resigned as Cabinet Secretary.
