Mother of Theodric and Matilda. She lived in Amber for many years, and raised her children in the palace, but Oberon never married her, and she was never awarded any titles beyond the necessary courtesies of a king’s mistress. She left Amber for her own safety when House Feldane came to power, and is presumed to have died in shadow.

Adele’s family were at the time a powerful branch of House Karm, but they never recovered from the scandal Theodric caused in feuding with the newly-created house Feldane. Their lands were subsumed into Karm (by marriage in most cases). Their coat of arms is still visible above the stable doors of their old stronghold, which is now the city watch house.
