The Secret Circle Wiki

The thing is, in the blink of an eye, I feel like everything was perfect, but I can't remember that feeling. And I keep trying, but I can't.
— Adam, about his feelings for Cassie [src]

Adam Conant (born January 28, 1995) is a witch and the male protagonist on The Secret Circle. Adam is the son of Ethan Conant and Catherine Conant. Adam is part of the Chance Harbor Circle.

Adam found out about his magic with the help of his girlfriend Diana sometime before Cassie Blake arrived into Chance Harbor, Washington. But as soon as he saw her, the two felt a mutual attraction which led them to grow closer. Always feeling responsible for Cassie, his behavior raised question for Diana, and when Adam's father told her Cassie and Adam's love was meant to be, she broke up with him. After trying to win her trust back, he became more and more confident about his relationship with Cassie and the two officially started to date, until John Blackwell, Cassie's newly returned father, told them their love was a curse more than a destiny.

Adam is a member of the Conant Family.

Early life

Adam was born on January 28, 1990 to Catherine and Ethan Conant, but only grew with his father, because his mother died in the Boatyard Fire sometime after his birth.[1] However, he was really close to his grandfather, James Conant who used to distract him by cloaking and uncloaking objects, as well as telling him stories.[2] At the age of 10, he broke his arm and it was Jane Blake who fixed it.[3] During his teens, Adam began a romantic relationship with Diana Meade which grew stronger and stronger, until Diana found out they were witches that she and Adam were too, in her mother's Book of shadows.[1]

Adam is described as a nice, patient and loyal friend by everyone. Adam's maturity when making difficult decisions draws people in. His ability to charm those around him and his utter devotion towards people are other admirable traits. When someone needs help, he is always the first to offer support and guidance. Adam likes to consider himself loyal but when Cassie arrived in Chance Harbor, he felt a undeniable connection towards her and no matter how hard he tried to ignore the spark between them, he felt himself suddenly questioning all of his intentions.

Physical appearance

Adam has dark brown hair and blue-grey eyes with a hint of brown, Sally Matthews commented to Cassie Blake that he has soulful eyes and also Adam is very handsome. Adam is fairly tall standing at 5"8 tall. He is a slim and fair skinned teenager.

Powers and Abilities


Adam has displayed considerable use of magic through the series. He has been capable of setting off fires that were burning through the metal of a car, although that might be linked the fact he has an affinity for Hydrokinesis (even if he didn't set it off with water), open locks and even cause electrical surges. He has also been able to combine his powers with other circle members on several occasions, such as when they tossed around Zachary Larson through the halls of the school or when he lead the attack on Eben by piercing him with a branch he threw at lethal velocity.

At the beginning of the series he used his magic mainly to tutor Cassie on how to use her magic through such spells as levitating water droplets and lighting a bulb. Adam is often the one leading a spell showing considerable knowledge of spells and magic.

It should be noted that, while Adam couldn't use his individual power for as long as the Circle was bound, whenever he combined his power with someone the results seemed more powerful when he was extremely determined in getting the job done and/or protecting someone, thus giving more credibility to Jake's theory that strong emotions can fuel the power of witches.

He also inherited his grandfather's affinity for cloaking spells.
