The Promised Neverland Wiki
  • Manga

Adam (アダム, Adamu?) is a former experiment who was born and raised in Lambda 7214. Before being transported to Goldy Pond, he became the gatekeeper of the Goldy Pond Resistance.[2]


Adam is large and bulky, with a wide frame, elongated and extremely muscular arms, a small amount of wispy, short blonde hair and a round face with a large nose. Adam has prominent veins across his body, with the most obvious being two on his forehead. He is far taller than the other kids in Goldy Pond. Adam also has an emblem tattooed on his chest, which is presumed to be the identifier used in the farm he came from.


Adam's personality is generally unknown, but he lacks a significant mental capacity, with even Leuvis referring to him as a "simpleton", and "incapable of complex thought". Leuvis used this strategically during their battle, dodging debris thrown at him so it instead hit other Goldy Pond Resistance members. Despite Adam's powerful combat abilities and simple nature, he seems to be friendly with the other children, as evidenced by his interactions with them after everyone returned to Shelter B06-32.

Adam also seems to need a lot more food than other children, or at the least prefers more, as evidenced by a bonus comic of Paula bringing him leftover loaves of bread, including at least 7 loaves, far more than any of the other children would eat in a single meal.

Violet seems to be the best at communicating with Adam, since she explained that he has trouble understanding conventional language, and also issued orders to attack Leuvis during their battle.

Adam is introduced by Violet as the gatekeeper for the Goldy Pond Resistance, with Violet stating that he has trouble understanding language and that they need to explain things to him in simple terms.[2]

Adam repeats "22194" almost constantly, which is Norman's identifier.[3]

Adam is integral to defeating Leuvis in the Resistance's plan to retake Goldy Pond, and delivers several crippling blows during the battle.

It is later revealed to Leuvis that Adam is from Bayon's investment, Lambda 7214.[4]
