Adam ~ Real Name: Adam of the House of Randor
Growing up under the oppressive rule of the Snake Men, D’vann was driven to rebel against injustice when his brother was captured and eaten. Others flocked to Grayskull’s banner and his legend began to grow. Declared King for his courage, compassion, wisdom and strength, King Grayskull became a great leader, ruling along with his council of wise Elders. A destined guardian of the Sword of He, Grayskull magically passed his essence into the blade with his last breath — ensuring that only his heirs would now wield it and tap into the great power it harmonized with. After his death, the sword was split in two and its power transmuted into a great orb inside his castle, protected by Grayskull’s devoted and loving widow. Castle Grayskull – Fortress Of Mystery And Power. Long ago, in the ages past the Great Wars the Cosmic Warrior He-Ro joined forces with King Grayskull. Their combined might became a beacon of hope, bringing together the greatest warriors from across Preternia. Together, this band of warriors became the first Masters Of The Universe, fighting against the Horde and Snake Men invaders. Heroically sacrificing himself to save King Grayskull’s life, He-Ro passed his magical sword to the King, ensuring only those with great strength, courage, wisdom and compassion would wield the Sword Of He. To safeguard the sword’s power source and protect the kingdom, King Grayskull ordered a great fortress erected. With the help of the giants, this mighty fortress was constructed first from a single enchanted stone, which was sculpted into a giant Power Skull. Later, towers and walls were erected around the Skull Stone and the fortress was protected by the magic of the Elders. After the King’s death, his fortress would remain fading from memory into legend, but always protecting the hidden power of the Universe and the secrets of Eternia from evil. After the rise of the Horde Empire, evil again outweighed the forces of good in the five dimensions. So in every generation a Cosmic Warrior was recruited by the Overlords of Trolla to fight against evil. Each was given the Sword of He, a weapon infused with the Power of the Universe. They were also assigned a Trollan guide to watch over and advise them in their quests. On the planet of Eternia, after five centuries of being split in two, the Trollan Power Sword was at long last joined and bequeathed to an heir worthy of its power – Prince Adam of the royal household. Orko, a member of the Trollan magical elite, was assigned to watch over Adam. Although he was a powerful mage on Trolla, the hidden mystic properties of Eternia turned his magic into little more than entertaining tricks, which he uses to entertain his friends and remain undercover. Growing up in a small Eternian village, Teela’na helped defend her people from a Horde Scout ship that had discovered her planet on a magic locating mission. Recognized for her loyalty, courage and wisdom, the current aging Sorceress chose Teela’na to take up her title and defend Castle Grayskull’s secrets for the next generation. During her reign as Sorceress, Teela’na not only cast the spell to clone the Sword of He, she was also cloned herself by Skeletor who desired a magic-wielding bride to pass on his legacy. With the help of Man-At-Arms, Teela’na saved the cloned child she gave birth to married to her husband a royal palace guard until he died soon after their childs birth. And it was through her undying love and devotion to this baby girl that Teela’na gave her up to Man-At-Arms, awaiting the day when her daughter would become the new Sorceress and Guardian of Castle Grayskull’s secrets. For two centuries, the Eternian weapons master and combat instructor to the royal family has been called the “Man-At-Arms”. Trained by the renowned tactician Dekker and a veteran of the Great Unrest, Duncan was asked by King Randor to step into this position and fortify his guard with an elite strike force which he named – The Masters of the Universe. In addition to his skills in combat, Duncan is also a great inventor and helped construct an electronic version of the Power Sword for Adam to use until he could unite both halves of Grayskull’s sword. Man-At-Arms and his adopted daughter Teela often scout the borders of Eternia for signs of lurking evil. The adoptive daughter of Duncan, the current Man-At-Arms former Captain of the Guard, Teela grew up in the palace of King Randor with his son Prince Adam Teela’s Best Friend. Trained from an early age in the ways of battle, at age 18 she became Captain of the Guard, leading the troops of King Randor and acting as a defacto member of the Masters of the Universe. She is yet to become aware of her true heritage as the magically cloned daughter of, and heir to, the Sorceress of Castle Grayskull. She carries the Staff of Ka, which was once used by the Snake Men in their epic battles against the Horde and King Grayskull during the Great Wars. Teela uses her magical staff to track her foes’ every move! A member of the Green Tiger Tribe, Cringer was saved from a parek-narr attack by a young Prince Adam and afterwards became his devoted companion for life. Prince Adam uses the Power Sword to become He-Man the Most Powerful Man In The Universe.
