Alexandros I Irikladis is the founder and Basileus of the Hellenistic Empire of Cimbrun. He first entered the micronational community in January 2019. However, his royal position (f.m.a. Emperor of Orini, Imperator of Orini) dates back to 2014, during Cimbrun's ancient period as a Pokémon group and his interest in micronationalism dates to that time as well.
Alexandros I Irikladis was born on May 6, 2002. He was interested in video games from the age of 18 months after witnessing his biological father and a friend play Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 2, and at the age of 7, he first played Pokémon Platinum on a flash cart. This would inspire him to play the games as a fan. In 2014, at the very end of what Pokémon fans call Generation V, Pokémon Facebook groups sprang up. Alexander had joined Facebook in 2010 (under a false age) in order to roleplay, most infamously playing a murderous race of characters known as Primals (later Primordians), and saw the groups as a way to gain new friends.
Alexander, the group conqueror: 2014-2019
Alexandros' earliest time in the Pokémon groups was spent lurking and speculating on the first Generation VI games, however, he soon created a group of his own: the Orinian Empire. He would enter groups and try to conquer them, unaware that this sort of aggressive behavior was not allowed. The first group owner seemingly obliged in order to troll him, causing the only major upset the Ancient era Orinian Empire would cause as thousands of people, assuming Alexander was now admin and would cleanse the satirical Pokémon group known as Pokéspot of its satirical elements, left the group. However, further attempts to conquer groups failed, and Alexander eventually clashed with Thayer Cranor, a supposedly ruthless group owner who enjoyed roleplaying who would usurp the throne, only for Alexandros to get it back as he left and the group died.
This clash went on for years, and caused trouble for Alexander, who, traumatized by abuse from his father who he was visiting and a desire to get into drama on YouTube where he spent much of his time uploading videos, was hospitalized numerous times between 2017 and early 2019, showing no improvement and even being arrested once until a judge used social media as a bargaining chip for good behavior.
Alexandros joined the micronational community upon being let back on social media, ready to use his mind for something better than he did before. However, Alexandros was still very much insane, having two lapses of judgment due to misunderstandings about how the community worked. He eventually joined a micronational UN of sorts, where Cycoldia and Etukan had a court case. Alexandros, as a prosecutor, sided with Cycoldia, leading to the Great Micronational War (which a poorly written article would be made for later.) This would lead to a short exile after the empire was nuked, then the return of the empire as Cimbrun after a failed Second Orinian Empire. The Imperium of Orini-Cimbrun failed, but in February 2021, Alexander returned to micronationalism under the Hellenic Empire of Cimbrun, later renamed the Hellenistic Empire of Cimbrun.
Alexandros was very much "simulationist" as described by gatekeepers on /r/micronations, even defending simulationism in a wrongfully made statement where he said land ownership could lead to death. He eventually changed his mind after being mentored, though he now regrets this.
Alexandros is an avid video game and anime fan. He is a video game collector and a planned speedrunner of Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 2 and Europa Universalis IV, though he hasn't officially submitted a run yet due to a lack of recording hardware for Budokai 2 and lack of knowledge on how to set up the timer in Europa Universalis IV. His favorite anime are Dragon Ball, Sword Art Online, Puella Magi Madoka Magica (his favorite Puella Magi, notably, is Sayaka Miki), and Attack on Titan. He is a practicing Hellenist, and Zeus and Thanatos are his patron deities - he worships Alexandros III Argeádai as a hero. He also ran, until he lost the password, a parody account on Twitter, @ParodySayaka, though he rarely makes jokes (referred to in the scene as "banger tweets") or posts Photoshop edits, preferring instead to roleplay.
He is bisexual, a demiboy, and a femboy, though he rarely shows this side to micronationalists as he has been mocked for it. He considered going trans at some point but this ultimately led to his decision to become a demiboy.
