Vexiers are images of the inner life of a person. The person can see them only in special conditions, when mortally injured, in a traumatic situation – or when in love or in another highly emotional state. Vexiers help Alfred to overcome his life in poverty, become a better person and find the future he was dreaming about since his early childhood.
