Early History

There isn't anything known about his early life.

Throughout The Originals Series

Season Four

In Gather Up the Killers, he was seen, along with his mom, at St. Anne's church. While the parents were gathering supplies, he and the other children were playing. As he was running through the church, he ran into Josh, who he immediately knew he was a vampire. After Josh teased about having the fangs to go with it, he was startled and knocked over a fruit bowl and his mother made him apologize.

Later that night, he was exploring an unknown house and found the sigil that has been spotted all over the city. Not long later, he was engulf in a blueish light and vanished.

In Haunter of Ruins, Adam has seemingly been possessed by the Hollow or it's Zealot's dark magic. A personal object of his is used as a totem to bind him to a sacrificial spell though Vincent intervenes and saves him and the three other children. As they are taken away in an ambulance, Will Kinney stops them and kills the EMT driver. He misleads the children, telling them it will be okay.

In Keepers of the House, Will has taken the children, including Adam, to a secluded location in the woods of New Orleans to attempt another sacrificial ritual to raise the Hollow. He is saved again by the combined efforts of Elijah, Vincent, Klaus and Marcel.

Later that night he, and the other children, are reunited with their parents at St. Anne's church. He embraces his mother, Maxine, in a tight, loving hug.


Not much is known about his personality though Maxine's comments suggest he's a rambunctious child and that he doesn't listen. He did get startled when he ran into Josh.
