The mysterious man-made Adam was an intriguing hybrid created by Dr. Eric Lang from human body parts stolen from graves. Brought to life by Dr. Julia Hoffman using the life force of Barnabas Collins, Adam shares a special bond with Barnabas in that one will experience what happens to the other, be it pain, illness or death, freeing Barnabas of his vampiric curse in the process. Childlike, suggestable and inquisitive, he is befriended by Carolyn Stoddard, Professor Stokes, and Nicholas Blair, who manipulates Adam's loneliness, doubt and quest for love as a means to enact a diabolical plan for a race dedicated to Satan...
