Somebody added: "Quaffing from a sink can sometimes temporarily change you into an Aleax."

This is true - and a normal sink effect, so it doesn't belong here.

To clarify, the normal effect is that you polymorph into a random creature, which may be an Aleax

@ least slightly stupid question:

I'm thinking you can feel pretty good about a pet polymorphed into 1 of these kids, but seek verification (look pretty ba to me!)Slarty 22:49, November 16, 2010 (UTC)

An Aleax isn't a bad early pet, although not nearly as mighty as an Angel or an Archon. Aleaxes can use weapons and armor, so try to make sure yours have some good ones. If he's not picking up the gear you want to give him, try locking him in a room with it for a while (and make sure you don't give him a key!). Being inediate like the other A, you don't have to worry about feeding your Aleax or having it each your tasty kills off the floor. On the other hand, it also means that you can't raise his tameness by feeding him, so try not to leave him stranded on another level for too long (at least unless you're sure you can deal with him if he goes hostile). --Ilmari Karonen 01:28, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

how to tame?

how would i tame an aleax? Ive throawn all sorts of things at him >.> --Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

You need to use a scroll of taming or the spell of charm monster. Throwing food only works on domestic animals - dogs, cats, and horses. See also Pet#Acquiring_pets -- Qazmlpok 21:29, 28 March 2012 (UTC)
