A Magical Girl who has lost her place in the world and is currently hiding out in Neo-Magius. She has been a member of the choir since she was a child, and used to love singing so much that she even sang in club activities. She has a calm and friendly demeanor, but her fearlessness is one of the reasons why people trust her.
The Doppel of longing. Its form is a ship's figurehead. The master of this emotion locked away her own love, and continues sleeping without ever putting it into words. Her Doppel is an avatar of unsinkability that emerges from the water’s depths, and refuses to allow anyone to give up on any kind of love. Upon seeing someone who it or its master is fond of, it puts their feelings towards that person into song while waving its wings and mast as part of the ultimate concert. If you don’t give any response after observing the performance, you’ll be sliced to ribbons by its lattice-shaped mast, so applauding is the safe option. But either way, listening to its song will cause the iron in your body to become oxidized and make you sick, so people say it’s best to just avoid listening in the first place.
Powers and Abilities
Alexandra's power is described as "Pacification". Alexandra's harp music can "pacify" those who are her targets, eliminating their aggression and hostility.
- The characters of her last name mean "chestnut" (栗) and "nest" (栖) respectively.
- She may be named after Saburō Kurusu, a Japanese diplomat who acted as an envoy trying to negotiate peace and understanding with the United States while his own government, under the leadership of Hideki Tojo, were secretly preparing an attack on Pearl Harbor.
- Her first name may come from the HMY Alexandra, a British royal yacht steamship first used as a luxury cruise. After being claimed by the Norwegian government in the 1940s following the German invasion of Norway, it was repurposed to transport Norwegian troops for the war effort. Now renamed as the Prins Olav, it was eventually sunk by German bombs while attempting to escape to the United Kingdom as the Norwegian Campaign was coming to an end.
- Her witch form is named after a proteobacteria that feeds itself with the rust of sunken ships, first found on samples taken from the wreck of the RMS Titanic. This bacteria is notable because it is both projected to bring about the Titanic's total deterioration within a decade, and yet also having beneficial potential in the field of bioremediation by accelerating the decomposition of shipwrecks littering the ocean floor.
- Alexandra was released on April 14, 2021 which coincides with the sinking of the Titanic on April 14 and 15, 1912.
- Her Doppel is designed after the hull of a ship, with Alexandra herself taking the form of a figurehead.
- Because of the chains that hang from it, it also resembles her harp.
- Alexandra first introduced Neo-Magius to Himena when Neo-Magius was facing disbanding. Even though Himena is aware of Alexandra’s true affiliation, Alexandra remains Himena's most trusted aide with Himena calling her "My Man(マイメン)".
- Judging by Lavi Himuro's laissez faire attitude toward her colleagues, it is presumed that Alexandra's job was done with the approval or connivance of Lavi at least.
- The syllables of her surname are the same ones that would be used to render the Hispanic surname "Cruz". It's unclear whether this is intended or just a coincidence.
- Together with the possible references in her name and her doppel, Alexandra is seemingly very associated with boats.

|"It's nice to be able to wave 'Welcome Home' to my dad like this.
I'm scared that I'll have to wave goodbye again. It's a long journey and you never know what might happen. So whenever I see you off,I'll say a lot of prayers and hope you come back safely."
|**Unique to Alexandra Kurusu**|
Neither the people around you nor God can teach you how to love properly.
So I'll just have to keep my thoughts straight to the beat of my heart. The face that noticed the letter, the face that read it, the face that reacted to it, the face of that person whose moment was captured.Whenever my expression bursts out of my eyes, it makes me sigh with love and pain.
|**Unique to Asahi Miura**|
We simply lie there as time moves around us, gentle and slow and silent.
The body is no longer hurt; the mind is at ease.
To be in a world free of ups and downs is surely the highest bliss, but perhaps it's all the same whether you're asleep or dead.
|The wind that passes by without a care in the world, and the trees that sometimes rustle
Hand in hand with only a single flicker of sound She becomes a director who enhances the performance of one girlThe absolute harmony that is created when people come together... there is only peace here.
|Three senpais whom I've admired since the first time I met them,
and who I can always count on. But I don't want to just admire them,so I have to grow even more so that I can get closer to them.
|"Now everyone, let's bathe our whole bodies in this candy-sweet Cola!
And don't worry about what's going on around you. Do what you want to do as much as you like!!So... Nagisa will eat eat as much cheese as she wants!"
そして周りのことなんか気にしないで 自分のやりたいことを好きなだけやっちゃえなのです!!というわけで... なぎさは好きなだけチーズ食べることにするのです!」
|Wh-what should I do! Such a figure in such a place ... It would be terrible if it was seen!
I have to do whatever it takes to not be seen! At least I have to do this...! Eek! Himena and her friends are here...!...uh...? Maybe I should cancel my transformation?...Is that...Ye-yes, that's what I should do!
