Also called The Betrayer.
Adam is a Guardian – specifically, of the Broken.
He is ancient and mysterious; like all Broken, he has four wings with the power to stop any attack and nullify magic. His wings and hair are solid black, and his skin is tawny gold.
He’s quite mad, but all the Broken are.
He makes his first appearance in Half-Shell Prophecies, and he is one of Notte’s oldest friends. In fact, no one really knows how old he is; the creation of the Saqalu is a mystery, anyway, and he’s definitely one of their oldest.
He was already old and weary when Notte came into the world many thousands of years ago, and he’s one of the few Broken who’s maintained enough sanity to be able to move among the living every once in a while.
Adam lives in Meginnah, the utterly secret home world of the Guardians, and has come to believe the Guardian fantasy that the living can never be truly protected as long as they’re alive. Uh-oh.
