Adam Kent Anderson is Juliette Ferrars's first love interest. He has known her since they were 8 years old and, in his own words, he has always felt attracted by her. He is the older brother to James. His father is Supreme Commander Anderson and he is Warner's half-brother.
Adam has known Juliette since they were children. Although he never spoke to her, Adam always defended her from the other children that bullied her and threw stones. He is described by Juliette as a smart, brave and protective character, whom has always believed in her innocence. His father abused him whenever he visited, and their mother had to hide her children away from him when he came. He is said to have thrown bottles at Adam, commanding him not to flinch. He eventually blamed him and James for the death of their mother.
At sixteen, in an intent to take care of James and find Juliette, he became a soldier of Sector 45, where he learned how to survive and Kenji Kishimoto befriends him. When Adam figured out Warner was looking for Juliette, he volunteered to go into the asylum. He was locked up in the asylum with Juliette for almost three weeks until they were released. Then, was designated to guard her, until they were able to run away by jumping from a window. After a series of occurrences, and Adam nearly dying, he, Juliette, James and Kenji arrived at Omega Point.
Adam Kent's father is revealed to be Supreme Commander Anderson and that he is half-brother to Warner. Anderson blamed him for the death of his mother and repeatedly beat him. It was also revealed that Kent is his middle name, Anderson being his last name.
Adam is first seen in his house hiding with a small group of rebels, the only survivors from the previous war. He is at first very pleased to see Juliette but, then becomes angry when she distances herself from him and shows preference to Warner when defending him. Juliette and Adam get into multiple fights which end up with him angrily storming out to take a walk and cool off. In one particularly bad fight he tells Juliette to leave and never come back. She then leaves with Warner and his friends soon follow suite. He eventually makes up with her when he is forced to move into Warner's training room due to lack of material. He is last seen coming back from the war and hugging his little brother James, smiling like he never has before.
Adam, in Restore Me, makes up with his brother, Warner, after he asks them to talk. They talk about their younger brother, and their father as well. Before, Juliette notes that his condition was horrible and that he appeared depressed.
From a young age, Adam has been solely responsible for raising his brother James. As a result, he's loyal, protective, caring, and drawn to Juliette for her vulnerability and kind-hearted nature. He was shy as a child and never approached Juliette, only admiring her from a distance and guarding her from bullies. When Juliette is institutionalized, Adam becomes single-mindedly determined to find her again, clinging to his perception of her as a gentle, quiet girl in need of protection.
Adam is committed to protecting the people he cares about, though his methods of doing so tend to backfire. He has never told James the truth about their monstrous father, preferring to let him believe that both parents died in a plane crash. While this succeeds in preserving James's innocence, it also keeps him from getting to know Warner as a brother. Adam also makes the mistake of not telling Juliette about the experiments he undergoes at Omega Point under Castle's watch, which leads to Juliette nearly destroying the facility in a panicked rage.
Having been beaten by his father as a child, Adam has a hot temper and lacks healthy coping mechanisms. He tends to live in denial, as shown by his refusal to accept the breakup with Juliette and the revelation that Warner is his half-brother. When Juliette teams up with Warner, Adam lashes out in anger and jealousy, revealing a cruel, vindictive side of him that shows he's more like his half-brother than he cares to admit.
Ultimately Adam swallows his pride and fights alongside Warner's army to overthrow the Reestablishment, having accepted that he and Juliette weren't right for each other. Afterward, he settles into a relatively stable and peaceful life at Sector 45's military base, where he no longer worries about basic survival or providing for James. As a result, he mellows considerably and even reaches out to Warner after the death of their father.
He is said to be alarmingly handsome, tall, five feet and eleven inches, weights 180 lbs, has blue eyes and dark-brown hair, and is described to be strong and muscular. He has military tattoos on his arms and a tattoo of a bird on his chest.
Power Negatation: Adam has the ability to disable other abilities.This is why he can usually touch Juliette without being harmed and why Warner is not able to sense his energy. However, the ability is not constant and can be turned off both through concentration or lack thereof.
- Juliette Ferrars: Adam has known Juliette since they were still in school. He had been searching for her since she was locked up. In the army, Adam figures out that he can touch Juliette, and the two start a relationship. However, Juliette says that she only had a relation with him because he was the first one who was nice to her and she was desperate about the thought that he could touch her. Later, they grow apart and Juliette breaks up with him because she wants to protect him since they found out about Adam's ability. She states that she never ran away for "them", she ran away so she could be free. Even when she realizes she and Adam have their abilities under control, she does not get back together with him because she says there would have been problems between them later on, regardless of the fact that she was in love with Warner. Adam was brokenhearted by their separation, but realizes that she has changed, and is no longer the shy, quiet girl that needs to be protected, and soon begins to accept the truth.
- James Kent: Adam's brother, James, whom he has taken care of since their mother's death. He loves him very much, and in Restore Me, states that his focus is on his family now. He is also quite protective of James, keeping the secret of their parents hidden from him. He told James their parents died in a crash.
- Adam's birthday is on the 2nd of December.
