Adam believes that Nethys the lord of magic who stands between destroying the world on one hand or saving it on the other, has called him to devote his life to him. This calling did not come with by means of angelic encounters, nor did Nethys speak to him directly. It came through reading the holy texts and devoting his life to serve as guard for the traveling preachers. He sensed a calling to spread his power and influence not by word but by sword.
Adam was born in a tradertown in the southern Grandia called Marshalbourg. He was born to ordinary parent working as servants to one of the rich merchants living within the city. His parents well aware of their situation realised that they could not raise a child in their current situation, instead gave the child to one of the more malevolent temples of Nethys, ones where power was put before magic. He was raised as guard for traveling preachers. As Adam aged within the confines of the church he proved him self a warrior of great strengt, so he was ordered to accompany the preachers going to the most dangerous places and locations. Places of war or uprisings.
Adam knew that he was not a man giftet with genius intellect, nor the aptitude for rigorous study of holy texts. But he was instead captivated by the thought that by constant drilling at the guard training, he might become a channel for Nethys fierce wrath for his foes. While many oof his comrades elected for the elegance of magic, Adam devoted himself to Nethys second aspect, Power. He took to the use of sword and shield like a fish to water. He embraced the brutality of combat. It was in these years that the spirit of Nethys truly moved within Adam, showing him that for which his life had been designed. Some come into this world to build majestic cathedrals to venerate the gods, others write great tomes in their names. Adam came for war.
As his schooling drew to a close and he began to serve Nethys on the front-lines he became increasingly frustrated with the pacifism and hesitation of his peers towards spreading the word of Nethys. Unwilling to subject himself to such cowardice, and not wishing to grow bitter towards his brothers-in-arms, he thought it better to resign from his post, and forge out a destiny of his own and to truly understand the concept of power that Nethey promised. His superiors was not pleased. But he persuaded them that, if he succeed, it would bring far greater yield to the Church than the battlefield contribution of a glorified bodyguard. So it was that Adam undertook the great challenge of understanding something beyond human understanding: He knew that there were rough terrain ahead, but his training and spirit would serve his as a shield against the world.
