Adam

The first man

Name
Adam

Description

Adam, the first man according to Abrahamic religions, was created by God and placed in the Garden of Eden. There, he cared for and named all the animals.

As there was no animal suitable to care for Adam, God placed him into a deep sleep, where he extracted one of Adam's ribs, transforming such into a Woman whom Adam named Eve.

The two lived in the garden, free to do as they liked, except for eating the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Eve, being convinced by a serpent that this wasn't so bad, took a bite of the forbidden fruit before sharing it with Adam. True to its name, this filled them with the knowledge of good and evil, and in shame, they hid from God.

God figured out what they did, and as a punishment for their disobedience, he expelled them from the garden. He posted an angel with a flaming sword to guard the entrance to prevent them from coming back.

Afterwards, Adam had to toil upon the earth to grow his food. He and Eve had several children, most notably Cain, Abel, and Seth. It is presumed that they had more children, which eventually became humanity.

He died at the ripe old age of 930, outliving his son, Abel.
