History Edit

Born to Isabella Hartford and Francis Hathaway, Adelaide was the younger twin sister of Claire. By then, her father was a turned hybrid, her mother a witch. Sadly, Isabella died from birth complications after birthing the twins, Francis had tried to turn her, but hybrid's could not turn others into vampires. So, she was raised by her father, who was very protective of his daughters, and trained them to become powerful witches. She married Jacobi, and had twins with him, Maxwell and Sonia.

In the chapter The Glimpse...

In the chapter A Lesson in History, Scott travels into Lydia's subconscious to try and break Seana's compulsion to find out what she erased from Lydia's memory. However, while Scott tried to shred the compulsion from the memory, he got pushed back to the farthest part of Lydia's mind, and even brushed against a slumbering Adelaide's mind. Knowing that no one must know she was was in Lydia's body, she pushed him out of Lydia's mind.

Appearance Edit

Adelaide was known to be very beautiful, with long dark brown hair and light green eyes that were described as usually haunting and filled with a deep sadness. Especially after the loss of her husband due to her own daughter causing his death. She looks almost identical to her descendant Lydia, who is her "reincarnation", but is actually just her vessel.
