Alex Winter is the main protagonist of A Cry From Winter and a key character in the Arknthology. He is the human form (and counterpart) of the Arkn King Uriel.

Background & Personality

Little is known about Alex's background. He was the son of Marcus and Mary Winter, and (in most timelines) had a sister named Elizabeth and a brother named Michaelis. As a boy, Alex spent a lot of time alone, and often heard voices and had strange dreams. His family was mysteriously murdered when he was a young child: an occurrence which seems consistent in every timeline. The massacre of his family remains an unsolved case, with no leads to this day (aside from the possibility of a known serial killer being behind the murders). His alternate in Timeline B is on death row, due to being charged with the murder of his family at age 7.

Due to the fact that he is the sole survivor of the Winter Family Massacre, Alex suffers from multiple mental health issues, including major anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, and bipolar disorder. Aside from this, he has been shown to have a love of media, and to be an avid collector of movies. It has been mentioned numerous times that he enjoys the book series The Dark Tower.


A Cry From Winter

Timeline A

Alex Winter, a troubled man, is suffering from multiple disorders and his family's death by the hands of a serial killer. He finds himself in a "live or die" situation when supernatural entities connected to Dr. Ellis's medication began to stalk him. Leaving his tragic past behind, he tries to figure out what is going on with the help of his best friend, James.

Timeline B

Alex is eventually transported to another reality, where he was found guilty and sent to death row instead of staying with his enigmatic therapist, Dr. Ellis. At the first James is confused with the dimension-travelling and two Alex Winters; however, realizing the danger he is in, the alternate James decides to help his new friend. Now, Alex and James must deal with LongNose and the rest of The Negatives.

The Reveal

At the end of Season 3, "Alex" addresses the audience directly, revealing that he was really Uriel, and that he was aware (and in control) of his situation the entire time. He reveals that everything that has happened to him so far and every version of Alex that's been introduced was a fabrication created by Uriel as part of his punishment in The Infernous. (However, the events of Season 1 of ACryFromWinter, up to the supposed "reset", happened concurrently to Alex Winter "Prime", Uriel's true counterpart.) Uriel then nervously leaves the Infernous, exiting into Timeline A where he and the real Alex meet for the first time and began on the path towards convergence.




Alex Winter was created by Uriel in order to house and protect the Hethian Scrolls of Creation. His fate was sealed when he split convergence with Uriel and, during the Battle of the Arknza, awakened his true form as the Creation Scrolls -- eliminating his vessel to give way to the base of creation for the new universe, Universe X, and destroying him in a heroic sacrifice.
