doubled over with the hunger of lions
On-point and unwilling to accept failure, Adelaide is both beloved and reviled by her students. She is backed by the sternness of her military background, and can be quite harsh when disobeyed or ignored as a teacher. However, her personality outside of teaching is generally easy-going, rambunctious and idealistic to a fault; she believes in the ultimate good in everyone, which was what lead to her discharge from the marines. She is careful about the use of her power, and, on the whole, very responsible and intelligent despite her often crude behaviour when not around students. She enjoys spending time alone, and becomes easily exhausted in constant company. She is very private, and tends to keep her personal business to herself, unwilling to divulge the inner workings of her life to others.
Easily her greatest weakness, Adelaide struggles with abstract concepts and thinking outside the box - to her, the world is very black and white, and she is very quick to divide people into categories. It is incredibly difficult to persuade her to change her mind about anything, and outright telling her that she is wrong about something is a surefire way to start a fight. Once spurned, Adelaide is not particularly cruel or horrible, but she can become very mean-spirited, often taking a patronising air whenever in company she does not fancy, though, she will always remain fair and kind at her core. The very worst of her personality - under-handed, vitriolic and downright rude - emerges when she is gambling, a habit that she has difficulty kicking. She can also become extremely untoward while drinking. After all, she's always identified as "one of the boys".
Adelaide was born in Hotrock, South Midwest, into a military family, though her mother disappeared soon after her birth. Her childhood was uneventful, though secretive due to the small-town stigma that surrounded those few Gifted children among them. She followed in her father's footsteps, and entered the OSR Military Academy as a marine after graduating school. She graduated from OSRMA at age twenty, refusing to come forward as a gifted human despite the growing call for gifted soldiers. She ascended the ranks, partly due to having a high-ranking officer for a father, partly due to pure, unquestioning efficiency. Achieved Lance-Corporal rank after a particularly life-threatening assignment wherein she displayed great prowess and valour during various operations with her team in the civil war of the Oceanic Republic. Her promotion to Corporal came in after deployment to the Invasion of Orlando, where she displayed extraordinary valour in operation and earned a silver star, and had her return home as a highly decorated officer. However, she was granted honourable discharge a month later, as clemency due to honourable service, after the truth of her gifted status came out; due to strict regulations, gifted individuals were not permitted to fight in the regular armed forces, and were instead required to register into the Special Invasion Forces, to use their gifts against the enemy - something which she downright refused to do, due to the often psychologically scarring effect of her power. Enrolled in the Ennui University program almost immediately after, and excelled through ranks quickly, both due to her previous training and her keen intelligence. Graduated with a certificate of teaching, and applied for a position right away. Has been teaching for six years.
Her father died two years before her discharge, due to complications from an injury sustained during service. Her half-sister, who remained her closest friend throughout the earlier half of her life, was rendered catatonic after a brutal attack from her then-husband upon his discovery that Lydia was a gifted human. Being the only living relative in contact, Adelaide was given the choice to become the legal guardian of her niece and nephew, both of whom she is very close with. She has played the part of their parental figure for twelve years now, and is well known to be willing to do anything for the children.
