Adam is the king of the kingdom of France and the husband of Queen Belle. He is a primary protagonist of the Disney movie "Beauty and the Beast", and plays a small role in "The Twisted Chain".

Adam's first appearance in the story is in chapter twenty two, when Ivory is introduced to him at dinner. She describes him as looking "as prince-like as you could get- enviable posture, long hair that had been tied back with a ribbon, electric blue eyes that looked as though they could cut through metal."
