Okay, so first of all, the entire reason Alduin shows up at Helgen is two reasons. He is spawned close to the Helgen area from *Spoilers* and he camps out there for awhile. (Proof: Theres a burnt area close to Helgen showing a dragon was there) Now, the dragonborn hasn't asorbed their first soul yet so Alduin couldn't sense you, but he knew you was there. This is were there's two theories.
Theory 1: Alduin saves you from the chopping block because he doesn't want you dead so early, he kinda just picks you as the Dovahkinn and decides you aren't dying yet. (He knows the Prophecy) Alduin is arrogant, so he wants a worthy opponent. He even speaks to you eventually if you hang around. Now here's the proof he came to save you.
-The Chopping Block
-When you run up the stairs Alduin burst an opening for you to escape (If you get in the fire, it won't hurt you, meaning it wasn't meant for you)
-Alduin does not attack you at all if you don't piss him off
-Every spot you are, Alduin attacks anyone in your way
-He looks directly at you and speaks to you (Dragon Language)
-He would have killed you when you came out the cave
-At the stay close to the wall part - YOU ARE LITERALLY RIGHT UNDER HIM (My only thought was, he's like my older brother <3)
Now this goes to both Theories. If you hang around to long, Alduin will kill you as a, "f*** you then" Because you won't take his help.
Theory 2: Alduin senses the dragonborn but doesn't know which it is. So, he went crazy, killing everything. The reason he never attacks you is because he doesn't know if you the DB. Until after 80% of everyone is dead. He finally realises it's you, he'll swoop down say something to you, that has Hidden Subtitles and kill you. (He gave me a "Back up, *censored*" Look... and I ran to the Helgen double doors)
If you hang around after he does that, he'll block your path from the two guys you're suppose to choose over. I'm sure he'll kill you when you get close but I waited till he had a guy in his mouth, sprinted under his tail to the Imperial's door and Alduin actually Thu'umed my ass into the door and I went to the next scene. I'm sure Alduin was saying Join the Imperials.
