Adam Monroe is an evolved human with the ability of rapid cell regeneration. His powers are so advanced that he is unable to age or die, making him near-immortal. He originally discovered this while living over 350 years ago in feudal Japan (as Takezo Kensei). Adam, with time, saw the world to be corrupt and in need of a massive cleansing of humanity. To aid him in his plans, Adam brought the Company's founders together, but in the end was betrayed, forcing Adam to rely upon himself to save the world.
Likes: His ability, having complete control and power over everything, happily wiping out 93% of the human population, Sophie Covington and obedient followers, pain and suffering.
Dislikes: Children and disobedient followers, only willing to kill .07% of the human population, others with abilities, peace and prosperity, "the endless cycle of destruction humanity seems to go through."
Phobias: Being trapped forever, failing his goals, losing his ability and control over everything. Not having any followers at all, the death of Sophie and himself.
+~Powers and Abilities Information~+
Adam possesses the ability of rapid cell regeneration, allowing him to heal almost instantly from most injuries. After a certain amount of regeneration, a person with this ability stops physically aging. Also, all the cells in his body are dying then healing, effectively making him immortal. Adam's regenerative ability may have improved over time; he can create copies of himself through his regenerative power. Healing requires conscious effort while rapid cell regeneration works automatically, powers used against him would be moot since Adam can negate by regenerating.
Adam is sometimes unable to regenerate if an object is inside of his body until that object is removed. Adam revealed that introducing his blood into a wounded person's body will cause rapid healing of the injuries. Adam can't stand children, but he also can't live without a wife. Someone could, theoretically, remove Adam's entire brain from his body, which could prevent regeneration. Even though his cells rapidly regenerate, it is possible that he is not actually immortal and will die from a lack of nourishment after an extended period of time.
Adam's birth name is unknown. He has taken on "a few dozen names", most notably Takezo Kensei and Adam Monroe. The name given to him at birth—whether one of these or something else entirely—remains unknown. Adam has demonstrated great skill with a sword as early as 1671. Adam initially appeared in 1671 as a man in his late twenties to early thirties, and was able to survive for hundreds of years without apparent aging, as he has a similar appearance while active in 2007.

History: Pursuit. Death is his constant companion. Through Hiro Nakamura, Takezo Kensei learned his amazing ability: he was the man who could not be killed. Later, he revealed the true extent of his powers that he did not age. Kensei was in fact, immortal. In the eighteenth century, he's found a new drive, to find the man who could be just like him...
At some point between 1671 and the founding of the Company, Adam Monroe became a British mercenary during the Revolutionary War - not out of loyalty to the British, but simply to "escape boredom", and appears to think of himself as a god.
"1777, the English had commissioned our services to help guard Port Arlesburgh. We were too late, but what remained was beautiful and terrifying. First rate work."
At one point, he comes across a town in which the British regiment had been single-handedly slaughtered by a man named Evan, according to a survivor.
"Impossible. There's only one man capable of such destruction. Me. Unless there is another. "Prepare to land the men." For the first in ages, I was impressed. I took my time to roam the havoc. Absorbed the clues that would lead me to my new target. The men did not understand the mission. No man is loyal at heart. I have found this countless times. Fear would keep them in line far better."
Intrigued, Adam arrived at the scene to confront the man, and killed him.
"I had been purposeless for so long. Wanting nothing other than to destroy the miserable humanity that surrounds me. He was either insane or a fearsome opponent. I had to know which. Pity. Too young for such big bluffs."
However, after killing him, an entire army of clones rushes at the regiment and caused them to retreat, leaving Adam behind.
"And so they came. But my men were always thirsting for a fight. Our only hope was to fight them up close, where their heavy fire was useless. Fight as we could, we took heavy losses. Push any human to a certain limit, and not even fear will keep them in line. Once again, I had been abandoned. So I fought on the only way I knew how. By myself. Killing as many as possible. Quickly. Without mercy. Time paused as this man fell from my blade for the second time tonight. And something told me I may be getting the fight I had asked for."
The bitter disappointment of humanity. Kensei discovered his foe's incredible power. He was fighting a man who could create duplicates of himself, clones. With Kensei's ability to heal from any wound, their war became a conflict of the ages...
"I had killed this man once before… And now he falls again by my blade. This was not a man who returned from death as I did. This was a man who had died a thousand times. While his brothers lived. A man who could replicate himself before my very eyes. One man, an endless source, who became my target. Stop him and I could stop them all. Humanity has so often proved a bitter disappointment… Had I at last found a worthy adversary?"
He realizes that Evan is a human Replicator and pursues him across a number of years, trying to kill the original Evan.
"For months I hunted him... In search of the one - - their source. But as the seasons changed, I began to wonder… Was it he who hunted me?"
Eventually, a number of Evan clones confront and taunt Adam, saying that in numbers there is strength and he is alone and can not possibly defeat them, and pushes Adam over a cliff into a river.
"I had made a foolish assumption."
At this point, defeated, Adam realized the need for followers.
"In defeat the truth raged at me. I was alone… While gods should have disciples."
While in his cell, Adam refused to take his power negation pills. So his power gave way to madness, and now his deposition was evil. But he fancies himself a noble god, thinking that he can make the world a better place for him and Sophie Covington. Even after being trapped in a coffin by Hiro Nakamura, Adam's goal was still to eliminate most of humanity. So now he's working to bring down the Company, by killing Angela Petrelli and Bob Bishop. But first Adam needed to escape, so he patiently waits for Sophie to find him . . .

The Ten Brides of Takezo Kensei
Say "I do" at your own risk.
Over four hundred years old, Takezo Kensei has outlived entire lineages of families. But what of his own? Who were the loves of Takezo Kensei?
Trapped in a coffin, Adam remembers how he outlived and survived the world's greatest men and women.
"Kings and queens. Wise men and leaders. Prophets and warriors. Even among those who could bend steel with their bare hands. Or wield the very elements."
All except one—Hiro Nakamura. "This is twice now that he's killed me." He ponders the point of immortality if he is buried alive and when all those he has loved are dead and gone.
"I've been on this earth for over four centuries. But what do I have to show for it? A few dozen names? Takezo Kensei? Richard Sanders? Adam Monroe?"
He then recalls his ten wives, realizing he is alone.
"1692, Diedenshausen, Germany. After turning 42, I realized I did not age. After 20 years as my wife, Helene saw it too. She fled into the woods, calling me a devil. Rumor has it she died years later in a nunnery.
1747, Milan, Italy. My second wife, Maria, bore me two sons. Even after a century of living, I learned something new -- I don't like children. I left them with two sacks of coin and left for the new country to begin again.
1782, I abandoned the queen's forces for Paris, France. My next wife I met at a ball at the Versailles. Proud of her looks, I never saw Frederica out of her face powder and rouge. It was that love of lead-based cosmetics that led to her untimely end.
1784, Japan. Searching for direction, I returned to Japan to find Yaeko's descendants. I thought I could find fulfillment by winning her heart, or her great granddaughter's. Yumi, while beautiful, was not Yaeko. I grew bored and faked my drowning with a carefully planned accident.
1787- The Northwest Territory, I took a new name and a new wife. Out of love, I confessed my secret to her that I cannot die. Angelica and I were together for 62 years, telling people I was her husband. Then son, then grandson. We held hands as she breathed her last breath, at age 87.
1864 - I married my second Maria in Atlanta, at the onset of the Civil War, as fate would have it, I chose the losing side. Again. While I fought on the battlefield, she died in a plantation fire after inhaling too much smoke.
Montreal 1901 - I put my French back to good use and meet a captivating beauty: Diane. After a harsh winter, she's stricken with tuberculosis. As a last measure, I injected her with a vial of my blood as she slept. The doctors called her recovery a miracle. She died a happy and peaceful death, 20 years later.
1926, Chicago - Louisa saw me regenerate my left eye and spleen after a vicious mugging. Ever the fragile creature, she drank herself to death four months later.
1958 - Los Angeles, Theresa never loved me. I learned this when she and her lover shot me twice in the chest, then dumped my body off a cliff. By morning, I swam back to shore and killed them as they slept.
1977 - Trina, she remarried. Had children, grandchildren. Died six years ago in a car accident. Thanks to Kaito and the others, I never got the chance to say good-bye."
He mentions he has already died countless times in the coffin, but that the deaths do not matter because he believes his newest bride will find him.
"How long has it been? Hours? Days? Weeks? What a cruel man you are, Hiro Nakamura."
