It seemed to be a rather average day around the Elbion gates, a stream of merchants and civilians alike were coming in and out of the roads that led into the large city that is Elbion, a reasonable number of guards were posted around the gates as expected, checking and validating those who were entering the city. Alex wasn't quite so sure why so many people were interested in the city, at least from his perspective. Ever since day one, the city felt like a maze for him and he had trouble trying to find the College even with directions given to him by people who were nice enough to do so, it didn't seem to ease his simple mind at all and while he did eventually find and try to apply for the College, figuring it out despite his problems, he was denied because he wasn't capable of being able to pay for the fees that came along with being a student of the College. He practically had nothing and with his issues, would have no idea on how to even start making money. Funny thing about that though, Alex is just sitting on the side of the road, mainly on the grass to "sightsee" the amount of people going across the road, to him it wasn't that far off from watching a river flow in one direction. It seems due to his rather questionable appearance, many people have mistaken him for a beggar, a homeless person and some have generously dropped coin to him as they walked by. Of course, he didn't quite understand why they were giving him money and didn't see anything wrong with his appearance, but he wasn't complaining about free coin, especially since he discovered the hard way that's how he has to pay for food after all. He wasn't exposed to civilisation ever since he was a kid so such simple concepts like that were quite unknown to him. He planned to wait on the side for a few more minutes before standing up and entering the city himself, hoping to come across something to start making money, or for something fun to happen at least.
