"Some people are like slinkys…they’re really good for nothing…but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs."


Nick’s career felon father and the elder Malachai. Cruel and vicious, Adarian takes nothing from no one and will kill anyone who gets in his way- this includes Noir and Azura. But there’s a deep secret he keeps, and it’s one he wants to pass on to Nick– provided they both live long enough.

He is currently serving three life sentences in Angola for killing demons who attacked him while he was robbing a bank. His defense of “he was a demon, Your Honor. A crap load of them were trying to kill me and if I hadn’t killed them, they’d have killed me where I stood, then taken over the city and enslaved all you petty and pathetic humans” didn’t set well with the judge. And they refused to allow an insanity plea since his whole defense was based on: I am not insane. You pathetic humans have to understand that demons need killing.

Hear it from the Fans

In one of the CON books, when Adarian comes to see Nick int he hospital, and when Acheron walks in, he withdraws from them, as if almost scared of him. Did he walk away because if he picked a fight with the Atlantean, would it be a risk for him to be found by Noir and Azura? is that why he leaves the hospital?

    Yes. The Malachai answers to the Source powers. They draw strength from him. Adarian spent centuries trying to get away from Noir and wouldn't risk ever being found by him or dragged back to Azmodea.

Nick was so worried about destroying the world, and becoming a monster. Adarian had all of his powers, why didn't he give in to the urge, and destroy the world himself?

    He was more concerned with staying off the radar of Noir and Azura, and in particular Seth. He had a separate set of fears and reasons for not ending the world. He's a different beast than Nick is, with an entirely different background and mental state, and set of priorities. Ending the world would have meant he had no place to hide from his masters and he didn't want to be under their control again, plus it wasn't his destiny---Nick knows it's his destiny. Unlike Nick, Adarian was enslaved by by Noir and Azura in Azmodea for centuries, which is why he was in hiding in the beginning of the CON books. It's all explained in Dream-Hunter and Dark-Hunter novels.

Who is Adarian's mother and father?

    The Malachai before him and a demon mother.

    Carl, MB Staff, May 27, 2016

So his father had the same name?

*Spoiler*According to the books Adarian went to school with Cherise for about a year. How could he have done that if he looks to be in his mid-thirties.

    The Malachai is an amorphic demon who is thousands of years old. In his true form, he doesn't look human at all. He can change his appearance into anything he wants. He changed it to go to school with her. That was explained in the book.
