Early Life and Education
Adam developed into a dependable and caring individual after being subject to abuse from his father. Adam became particularly attracted to Juliette due to her vulnerability and kind heart; believing that she needed protection from bullies.
Adam’s attempts to protect Juliette ultimately backfire, leaving him brokenhearted and frustrated. After accepting that she wasn’t his ideal match, Adam eventually relaxes considerably and begins anew his life.
Adam makes another mistake by withholding information about their monstrous father from James. Eventually, Adam swallows his pride and joins Warner’s army to overthrow the Reestablishment; thereafter he leads a relatively peaceful life at Sector 45’s military base where his concerns for basic survival or providing for his brother have dissipated while healthy coping mechanisms emerge.
