Adam Cody was born and raised in Lexington Kentucky, the second son of a Surveyor. The Cody family was rocked by hard times when over the course of several years their first born as well as two of Adam’s younger siblings were all lost to illness. Adam’s father turned to drinking, and often beat on Adam and his mother. As both Adam and his hatred grew, his father took to beating him first and locking him in a closet before beating on his mother, so that Adam could not intervene on her behalf.
At the age of fifteen, Adam bought an old revolver and stashed it in the closet. When his father locked him in there again he shot through the lock and confronted his father. Seeing the gun in Adam’s hand he pulled a pepperbox from his pocket, and Adam was forced to shoot him. Rather than stay around to see what would happen, Adam ran away.
For years now Adam has been grifting from town to town, doing what he has to to survive. He never stays in one place long, and soon after leaving he is usually forgotten.
