He then tried to construct a way to replicate the way he came through (he references a Traveler's Watch or something similar) using human technology (there's a note in the Control Room at the cistern of Alexander complaining about steam technology being huge and unwieldy). So, Alexander came from the same world as the Kaernk, and he managed to try to get back once before with the help of Agrippa and Weyer. Only Weyer went through instead of Alexander (there are a few notes of Alexander yelling at someone else who went through the portal without him). Alexander's memory cylinders constantly talk of getting back to his love (I think it means he left someone behind in his own world, that he's trying to get back to).

Anyway, Alexander came to our world, and tried to invent a way back by kidnapping people in the woods, and turning some of them into the Gatherers (the first victims were the Deserters, starting the legend in the nearby town), while using others to harvest the vitae, an energy generated by terror (There's a note in the tortured dog room about how only humans generate enough of it).

So, Alexander needed an Orb, Vitae, and a complicated steam-powered contraption based on the designs from an alien world. He used the Gatherers to construct the machine, the prisoners to create vitae, and Daniel to get an orb and hold off the shadow long enough to get home. (That's why there's a note about Alexander regretting that he has to abandon Daniel, the same way Weyer/Agrippa did to him).

So, the Kaernk is a creature from Alexander's world- The Gatherers are creatures made by Alexander to construct the machine- The shadow is a Guardian of the orbs on Earth.

As far as the men in the Wine Cellar, I always thought that Alexander mixed the potion that 'reacted explosively with organic matter' in with the wine, causing the men's stomachs to explode. He does say in one of the notes in the archives that something along the lines of "maybe I can use this setback to deal with my other problem," which I inferred to mean using the failed potion to get rid of Wilheim before Wilheim reported him.

The reason Alexander used Wilheim is because Humans are smarter than Gatherers, which are mindless brutes. He only used Gatherers because they don't ask questions.

he didn't leave his world voluntarily, he was kicked out for some reason or another.
