    Adam is easy-going, open-minded and generally a relaxed sort of person. He has a flair for the creative, and is highly organised. Prior to accepting his identity, Adam was far more closed off, irritable, and generally uncomfortable with himself in the world. However, with the support of his long-term partner Cass, he now just enjoys life and takes things as they happen. He doesn't have time for past tragedies, Adam lives for now.

    Adam is tall, with an angular face and blonde hair. He makes an effort to keep fit, and loves to run. He tends to dress in "business casual", favouring collared shirts in quirky colours. He also loves bright and weird socks.

    Adam's life has been littered with tragedies. Prior to his transition in 1987, he was known as Amanda Marie Longhurst, and it was under this name and presentation that he graduated Tallygarunga in 1984. He is a graduate of Sturt. 

    Adam and his twin Matt grew up in a violent household, and even after their father left, lived in fear for their mother's frail health. Valerie "Pearl" Longhurst passed away when the twins were in their seventh year. Adam had already begun distancing himself from the hurt, and threw himself into school work rather than grief.

    He also had an on-again off-again relationship with Alan Burdett during their school years. In seventh year, when Alan finally took schoolwork seriously, Adam began to develop feelings for his room-mate Cassandra Davenport. The pair began a relationship unknown to Alan, until he proposed at their graduation dinner, and Adam was forced to come clean.

    After school, Adam attended a muggle university, following his fascination with design. He discovered a knack for creating amazing spaces and saw that through to become an interior designer. The current decor of the Drunken Roo is Adam's work.

    In 2008, Adam and Matt discovered they had half-siblings from their father. Their situation was no better than the one Adam and Matt had grown up in. Aiden and Valerie's mother was killed by their father John, the two children going into the custody of Matt and his wife Kate. By this point Matt had changed his surname from "Longhurst" to "Belmont", a move that Adam respects, but doesn't understand. He chooses to remain a Longhurst and build his own, better family around the name.

    In 2012, Matt was in an accident that left him in a coma. Adam and Cass have had custody of Aiden and Valerie since then, seeing them both into Tallygarunga. Although Adam and Cass would like children of their own, they currently have no plans to explore that. They did once ask Matt if he would be a donor, a plan that was stopped by Matt's wife Kate---who was still reeling from a miscarriage of her own.

    Adam has his own business now, and he and Cass are moving back to Narragyambie from Melbourne for a change of pace.

    • Adam is Aiden's current legal guardian, and also his half-brother. The two are extremely different in a lot of ways, but Aiden desperately wants Adam to be proud of him (spoiler alert: he always has been). Aiden fears that admitting that he's attracted to girls will make it harder for him to relate to his brother.
    • Adam worries a lot about Aiden. The kid studies to hard and has almost no friends. It's something he feels he needs to help the kid out with, getting him to join a club or sports team, or something! 
    • Adam is also Matthew Belmont's twin brother. Matt's just returned from a long term coma, and he's not a happy or fun person to be around. Adam is likely one of the best people to try and slap sense into the miserable man.
    • Kate Belmont is Matt's wife, and therefore Adam's sister-in-law. Although they were rivals during their school years, the situation with Matt has brought them tentatively closer. Kate needs to connect with people more, and Adam might be just the man she can vent to about her crotchety husband.
    • Alan Burdett was Adam's highschool sweetheart, before Adam's transition. Alan's still a little weird about the whole thing and doesn't understand it. The way it all ended caused a wound that is ancient, but never really healed. It's probably time these two made their peace and moved on.
