I present my character, Xavier, from the Existence series, with his thoughts on why he is the Alpha Male.

would need to be the Alpha Male. Heath’s strength and power could destroy us
all. For the greater good I have no choice but to lead. I must protect not only
the world, but him as well. He doesn’t want to embrace the darkness, to inflict
the pain, sorrow, and loneliness that he feels every moment of every day onto
the population of our planet.
the first sparring match against my friend that I was able to win. Heath is
always an aggressive opponent. His every hit is mighty and his every miss
leaves behind an echoing thunderous boom. But on that day I was determined to
win the competition. It took creative thinking and persistence to wear him
down. Finally I had eroded away at him enough, and the win was at last

chess teams. I have always ensured that the macho side of his personality was
not neglected. We joined sports teams together and became captain and co-captain.
We took over the student government, which was easy since so many had learned
to turn to us and respect what we had to say. We were trusted, especially among

of this world. That is why I started my company. The benevolent work I do,
those achievements, they are what matters most in the world. That is a worthy
ambition which deserves attention.
Heath does not see it this way because he reacts to how others see him now. He
