♛ Adam Conant ☀ 19 ☾ Witch ☆ Open
In the beginning
Adam Conant was born on January 28th, 1992 in Chance Harbour, Washington as the son of Ethan Conant, and Catherine Conant, who died in the boatyard fire, not long after Adam’s birth. Though Adam to this day hasn’t been informed of it, Ethan was in great part responsible for that fire, having given power to Eben in order to destroy Cassie Blake’s father, Balcoin Witch and Dark Magic master, John Blackwell. Naturally, Eben being a witch hunter never had any intentions of honouring that agreement, wanting to kill the entire circle. On top of that Ethan was also in love with Cassie’s mother, Amelia Blake, and had been told that their families were fated in the stars, so when Amelia left chance harbour, it just piled on top of everything else and led him to drink. In spite of his Alcoholism, Ethan did love Adam and Adam loved his father, but he had to grow up pretty quickly and learn to be independent at an early age. He started helping out with the Boathouse diner when he was old enough. That didn’t stop Adam from being happy though: he got close to Diana Meade in Middle School and was the first to know about her family’s Book of Shadows. It was their little secret for a time but they eventually had to tell the others.
Adam was pretty excited when Cassie arrived in Chance Harbour, as he shared Diana’s enthusiasm for binding the circle. However, upon meeting her, he felt a deep connection to her which frightened him a bit, but at the same time drew him in. He fought it on a psychological level as he was in love with Diana but was completely helpless on an emotional level. He was the first to coax proper magic out of Cassie but every single time they did magic together it brought forth those feelings. Eventually Ethan told Diana about the prophecy, saying Cassie and Adam were meant to be together which led Diana to breaking up with Adam. For a while he pursued her having been with her for so long that he didn’t know anything else. Diana stood her ground however and eventually Adam cooled off. Out of anyone else in the group Adam was the first to know something was up with Jake Armstrong, and it wasn’t just out of the fact he had a sore history with him. Adam would eventually get with Cassie, but take an elixir afterwards that would erase their feelings for each other. It failed to work for Cassie but did work for Adam, at least for a while, and Adam ended up being the one who was entrusted with the crystal skull when John Blackwell and Eben were defeated.
Feet don’t fail me now
Adam is still in possession of the crystal skull, but while everyone had entrusted him to hide it, they all agreed leaving it in Chance Harbour was too risky with the 4 Balcoin witches in town, since the skull is directly tied to their bloodline. Adam though he hides it, is terribly seduced by the skull’s dark energy and the way it seems to be dripping with power. When no one is watching he takes it out to touch and look at it as if entranced or high. He doesn’t let anyone else come near it, and while everyone thinks it is protective, he’s actually possessive, unaware that because he does not have Dark Blood in him, it is slowly poisoning his mind, his magic and his soul. He’s become extra suspicious of anyone outside their original circle paranoid that they may be after the skull. He needs help but no one in the circle, not even himself has noticed.
Adam’s Elemental affinities: strongest Water, Air, medium Earth, weak Fire
If the circle ever needed to use the skull, would you trust anyone else to channel its power?
