Alex is a loner in the ice plains. She prefers pigs to people. She's a vegetarian. She starts in a small hut but moves into an igloo that she then renovates. She's good at fighting mobs in the overworld, but not the Nether. She meets Steve, who annoys her. He shares the legend that the villagers have. Herobrine put a curse on the area so that if a zombie ever kills a villager, zombie pigmen begin appearing and attacking in the overworld.
Alex has been noticing weird things going on around her farm and Steve has too. Steve asks her to help build new houses in the village since she is better at building design than he is, but Alex declines. Zombies and creepers attack the village and there is nothing but chaos. Steve fights them off and asks Alex to help again; she's still not interested.
