Canon/'Verse: L'Engleverse. Or books by Madeleine L'Engle.

Adam features in three of L'Engle's young adult books: The Arm of the Starfish (1965), A Ring of Endless Light (1980), and Troubling a Star (1994). The characters of Madeleine L'Engle's novels all exist in the same universe. Adam is one of three characters (according to Wikipedia) who connects kairos to chronos (think: the Murry/O'Keefes to the Austins).

Appearance: (via A Ring of Endless Light)

Adam is eighteen, nearly nineteen, on entrance. He is described as having "hair-colored" hair – somewhere in between brown and blond. His eyes are "sea-grey", probably because the POV describing him belongs to a girl on the verge of a crush. Adam is tall and thin - but not skinny - muscled and tanned because of his field work in marine biology (and in spite of his lab work for the same). His left shoulder is healing up from a GSW five months earlier, bandaged, but out of a sling.

He's often described as lit up or somehow luminous. "His eyes were open, and there was somehow light behind them, the way sometimes the light on the ocean seems to come from beneath the water, rather than just being reflected from above." …She's a poet.

Taken from: a few months after the events of Troubling a Star while Adam is flying up from incredibly freezing, pretty much barren, scientifically data-rich, internationally coveted, UV vulnerable, beautifully alien Antarctica. The island is going to be quite a change for him. At least the sunscreen should come in handy.
