"What's so great about normal?"
―'Drunk' Max to Liz[src]

Max Evans is one of the main characters on WB sci-fi series Roswell. He is portrayed by Jason Behr.


Max is a brooding, intense guy, struggling under the weight of his secret that he is not really from this world. Harboring a lifelong crush on Liz Parker, Max tries to balance a life as a "normal" teenager with his responsibility to his family – Isabel and Michael. The former King Zan of Antar, Max is an alien-hybrid and part of The Royal Four.


In Max's previous existence, before becoming Max Evans, he was Zan, King of Antar. Michael was his second in command and Tess was his wife. During Zan's existence, his older sister Vilandra, Isabel's former self, betrays Zan, by siding with Kivar his enemy but later on in season 3 Michael remembers that kivar had said to her nobody would get hurt but he had lied. This cost the lives of most of the Antarians, including The Royal Four.


The ship carrying the biological clones, Max, Isabel, Michael and Tess crashed in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. The army took the alien craft and took it to study. The four clones are saved by a US Air Force pilot and hidden from sight in a new ship, hidden in the center of a rock formation. Although, the clones do not emerge until forty years later in 1989. However, only him, Isabel and Michael leave the ship together, disguised as human children. The three are left with no memories of their former loves on Antar, or about the fact that there was a fourth child with them, Tess. The child, in fact didn't wake up at the same time, in which they had done it as well. Max and his sister Isabel found themselves wandering together in the desert and were both found and later adopted by a couple of lawyers : The Evans. On the contrary, Michael found himself again : alone and afraid, and without a family to rely on.
