* As good as jossed in ''DFC'' Book Four: Abnaxus predicts that at the end of his life, Crow will bond with "the Girl Who Walks Between Worlds", in other words, [[spoiler:Saga, April's reincarnation, who is thus more or less confirmed to be the future Lady Alvane]]. Zoe has an entirely different destiny ahead of her.

**If she is attracted to him, it could be more of an infatuation in the TeacherStudentRomance vein. She might also see him as a replacement father figure, seeing as how her own father was abusive.

[[spoiler:Can't be the April Ryan from the first game because that April was KilledOffForReal. Also, one of the creators has stated that the German translation that has Lady Alvane saying [[http://web.archive.org/web/20090129231420/http://ragnartornquist.com/blogger/2003/09/got-to-play-colin-mcrae-04-at-office.html she is April Ryan]] was an incorrect translation. They intended to keep it ambiguous.]]

* [[spoiler: Cannot be the April Ryan from the first game that marries him, because that April is dead. It's interesting to note that nobody ever thinks that she could be Kian's ''daughter''.

And, after all, given that April and Cortez belong to the same species, it's only natural for her to be attracted to him[[note]]If we assume that Kins reproduce sexually, that is[[/note]].

Because it would be an ''incredibly'' horrible plan if there was no failsafe in the event the unspeakable happened. (The Guardian died in a fatal accident beyond their control, contracted a horrible disease and died, etc) Tobias mentions that the Vanguard was taking children strong in the Balance. If the Guardian Candidate (who is usually the oldest) doesn't make it, it goes to the next one down the line, at least by the Sentinel. Thus, Gordon wasn't originally going to be the final Guardian - it was to be someone else who was likely killed by the Vanguard. Gordon is simply the only one to ''survive'' their attempts to create a Guardian who they could control. Cortez assumed that April would be the only one to make it to the Guardian's realm - and/or that Gordon would die. The reason she wasn't embraced as the Guardian was because Gordon was there. If two guardian candidates make it to the Guardian's realm, the oldest one is selected.

* Further lending support to this theory is that Gordon cannot possibly be 200 years old in ''TLJ''--the amount of "overtime" Adrian spent in the Tower because the Vanguard prevented all potential Guardians before April from entering his Realm. It is thus very likely that at least ten generations of Guardian Candidates followed each other before Adrian finally started weakening and [[spoiler:the White Dragon gave birth to April to break the stalemate with the Vanguard]].

They came to Earth to secretly assist its evolution like the Progressors from the StrugatskyBrothers' books.

So who's that wrong guy? Given that she says "now", looks like she knows him ("guy" must mean "male", right?) for a short time and, therefore, the guy must be featured in the game. Of all the male characters, she has the closest relationships with Crow and Cortez.
April and Cortez appear to have some spiritual connection (she has dreams that show what happens to him). Note how bad she feels about his death: even in Dreamfall, 10 years after his demise, she still can't bring herself to say that he's dead: she refers to him as "gone". Sure, he was her only guardian and mentor, but isn't it too much of a reaction?
Besides, Emma teases April saying that she (April) has romantic feelings for Cortez. Emma is an expert in such things, she would have noted something April herself refuses to acknowledge.
