Physical descriptionEdit

Adam was a man with brown hair and deeply tanned skin due to his year living in the desert of Nevada. He also was of medium height.



Adam was born as John Allen Bell on February 3, 1940, in Bakersfield, California.

He was turned into a vampire in 1961 at the age of twenty. After his turn, Adam moved to New York City. There he attended various parties thrown by Valentin Rusmanov. At one of those parties he met a vampire girl named Emily Anderson, with whom Adam fell in love with. Together they left New York and got married on April 23, 1965, in Portland, Oregon.[1] Later they moved to San Francisco.

After Adam was married to Emily for twenty years, Emily left him because she couldn't handle her immortality anymore and eventually took her life. After her disappearance and death, Adam went bad and joined some vampire gang in Tenderloin. Eventually, they were picked up by NS9 and were used by Christopher Reynolds for his gruesome experiments. During those experiments, Adam was cured from his vampirism by accident, and eventually, he was released by NS9.
