Vanishing Line

Adelaide trained as an Alchemist and later married the Howling Knight, Christopher Harden. The two had a son together, Lukather Harden, and trained him as both an Alchemist and Makai Knight. Although tough on Luke's training, Christopher's training was harsher. Even though Luke had his heart set on succeeding as a knight, Adelaide made sure Luke is magically trained to make him a stronger warrior. During Luke's training, Chris desired greater power and he saw strength is everything. Adelaide warned Chris of the dangers of training in forbidden techniques and made him stop his quest for power. Chris only compiled for appearances and secretly continued his dark training. Eventually, Chris attained greater strength, but became possessed by a horror. Adelaide sensed Chris's turn to the dark side and fought against her own husband. Distracted by Luke's well-being, Chris took advantage of her distraction and fatally wounded her. In her final moments, she warned Luke that strength is something attained for the sake of others and not for himself. Adelaide died in the burning family house and the fate of her body is unknown. It is presumed her body was recovered and given a proper burial. Adelaide's death would be a haunting memory of Luke for years to come.
