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...
