Adis hailed from Dirbenc, a remote region of Bozja. After receiving the standard imperial education, he served in the Garlean army as a centurion until the Bozja incident drove him into the arms of the Resistance. His final act was to fight a rearguard action on the southern front, ensuring the escape of as many allies as possible until the queen’s undeniable aether overwhelmed him at the last. When the survivors reached the safety of Gangos, their wails of grief echoed through the encampment. They had lost the best of them, and the entire company, their faces streaked with tears, wished they could have fallen in his stead.
Due to the time he was exposed to the Save the Queen's aether, Adis had his body transformed beyond recognition and became part of Queen's guard. He is faced and defeated by the Warrior of Light in Delubrum Reginae.
Although a commander of men, the hot-blooded Hrothgar was infamous for charging ahead into the enemy’s midst, whereby he would call out rival officers to engage in single combat. Such selfless, reckless bravery inspired his men and demoralized the foe, and no few young Bozjans sought to follow his example.
Adis is fought as Queen’s Knight in Delubrum Reginae.
