Alabaster Dresden is one of the Magic EXE characters for LEGO Voidhoppers, appearing in its Story Pack.

Background

Alabaster was just a normal teenager, up until he had to go to rehab and therapy for an apparent video-game addiction. In reality, he was just as sane as always, but even that was soon threatened as he was abducted and thrust into a prototype roleplaying game, named "Terraverse". Alabaster meandered around after leaving the Tutorial until he found what was to be his main hub in the world he'd blindly chosen: the universe of Harry Potter.

He found Hagrid and got him to lead the Gamer to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, which he promptly enrolled in as an adult student. He retrieved a wand and was sorted into Slytherin, and soon showed physical combat prowess beyond what most wizards could do. It also wasn't long before Alabaster was singled out by more conservative wizards and witches at the school for his preference for Muggle equipment, a turn of events that strengthened his existing friendship with Harry Potter.

Alabaster became an Orca Animagus between his first and second years, built his own staff between the second and third, and founded his own dungeon between the fourth and the fifth.

After the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, Alabaster's dungeon, the Tower of the Moon, saw its first massive army build within its walls, followed by a severance of ties to the Ministry of Magic by Alabaster Dresden as Rufus Scrimgeour was ousted from his position as Minister. Shortly after, the Tower of the Moon saw its first (and to-date only) mass mobilization at the Battle of Hogwarts, something occupying the time of seven of its ten battalions.

During the Battle of Hogwarts, Alabaster was reinforced by a guild of the sixteen other Beta Testers in Terraverse, which, following Alabaster's victory over both Lord Voldemort and villainous, megalomaniacal Terraverse developer Icarus Rourke, invited Alabaster in for entry. Alabaster declined, feeling betrayed by the guild for not having sought him out sooner, despite the fact that one of his friends ran the guild and that they had explained having to get around the tight security measures surrounding the Harry Potter universe after the Battle of the Department of Mysteries.

Afterwards, Alabaster left Hogwarts, venturing, eventually, to the Pirates of the Caribbean universe in time for the Dead Man's Chest/At World's End story. He stayed here, surviving as a captured member of Barbossa's crew on the Queen Anne's Revenge after Barbossa's theft of the Black Pearl, and rejoining Jack's crew in Dead Men Tell No Tales. It was here, however, he met his own death, sinking the Silent Mary in an attempt to destroy her.

Quotes

Hahah. Just keep in mind that I've already spotted ten problems for you and marked them on my HUD.
— Alabaster when encountering a mech or bigfig
No, no, no! This can't be happening! What if we break the spacetime continuum?!
— Alabaster reacting to himself
Oh, I'm sure we'll be fine. As long as we keep away from any Time Wraiths...
— The other Alabaster reacting to Alabaster's reaction to himself
Oh... Three moons, it's Link! I'm a huge fan, bro!
— Alabaster reacting to Link
So you're a capital-G Gamer as well? Well, it's nice to know I have friends here...
— Alabaster reacting to Gamer Kid
[Insert collectible name here]. [Insert collectible function here]. ... Aw yeah, 5000 XP! Level up!

— Alabaster's second line when idle
Only characters with the ability [insert ability name here] can use these objects. Anyone else have this down?
— Alabaster's first line when unable to solve a puzzle
Oh, wait, I recognize something about this! I didn't spend seven years as an unnamed extra in the LEGO Harry Potter games to see this pass by!
— Alabaster's first line when able to solve a puzzle
Puzzle Solved! Now, we advance through the level until we see the next big puzzle... Or boss fight, unless Mr Eyes In The Sky here directs us to a detour...
— Alabaster after solving a puzzle
(Sarcastic) Oh no. My greatest weakness. Easily-defeated crowds of minions.

Just call me if you want another dose of self-aware Gamer!
— Alabaster's first line when leaving

Animations

Entry:

  • Alabaster comes in from the portal at such a high velocity that he flies offscreen and hits the ceiling, causing dust to rain down from above. He then falls back down from it, landing flat on his face. He then gets up, dazed, shakes his head a few times and is then good to go.

Standing:

  • Upon stopping, Alabaster stands and crosses his arms.

Idle:

  • Active: Eventually he lies down flat on his back and falls asleep on the ground. He remains like this for a bit, before a little notice pin pops up and wakes Alabaster up. Sensing it futile to attempt sleep any further, Alabaster gets back up, yawns, stretches, and rubs his eyes before taking a deep breath and going back to the way he was.
  • Passive: Standard standing. Graymalkin, Dominic, and Tierzis come out of Alabaster’s satchel at various intervals, looking around from Alabaster’s shoulder, flitting about his head, and wandering around and getting a feel for Alabaster’s place respectively. Upon his spotting them, he shoos them back into his satchel, then goes back to standard standing.

Exit:

  • Alabaster backflips into his portal.

Ground Pounds (Changes depending on weapon equipped), in order:

  • Alabaster performs a move similar to Link's jumping slash. (Short Sword)
  • Alabaster shoots the area around his landing point. (Crossbow)
  • Alabaster drives his sword into the ground and charges it with magic, causing a localized shockwave. (Longsword)
  • Alabaster uses Confringo and rides the shockwave for a second before landing. (Wand)
  • Alabaster does an Iron Man landing, and lightning shocks any enemies within the radius. (Card Deck)
  • Alabaster sticks the staff out bottom-first, creating a shockwave when it lands. He uses the bounce to flip off of the top of the staff, lands in front of it, and spins around, grabbing it. (Staff)
  • Alabaster fires a magically-charged shot into the ground, causing an explosion. (Musket)

Dash:

  • Alabaster puts away the weapon he's holding if it's two-handed and leans forward.

Trivia

  • Alabaster's character tag comes from the fact that he was sorted into Slytherin.

  • Alabaster, being a self-insert character in his home franchise, will be voiced by his creator, DetectiveSky612.
  • Alabaster actually uses a curse from Wings of Fire when he meets Link, derived from Pyrrhia's night sky, which contained three moons.
