Adrian Licht

  • Quotes

    "When I listen to works of Mozart, or whether I'm attending swan lake at the Royal Albert Hall. I get a sense of Bewilderment. As if, my own thoughts become someone else...I feel like a king...Haha, a little crazy is it not? as if I stand on the stage whether the play is being conducted, pulling the strings and saying
    ....I am King of kings, Look on my works Ye mighty...and despair...."

    "Tell me, what do you think is the ultimate fear? I really thought I'd already reached the darkest of the dark, but then, ahead of me, I beheld a darkness even greater still."

    "The big secret to breaking the rules is to make it look as though you're following them."

    History:
    Not much is known about Adrian before moving to England or after, nor is there much information regarding his parents before such time but what is known is that Adrian, formerly called Michael Veil, he was a German-born British immigrant, moving to England alongside his parents Kimberly Veil and Hanzel Veil in 1981. As most rough starts go, Hanzel and Kimberly managed to cope with the tough circumstances, Kimberly after 6 years of study and graduating in Neuro-psychology at the Imperial College of London, landed a job as a psychiatrist. Hanzel's startup, however, took a little longer, as it would take another 4 years for him to an international lawyer. During this boom in their careers, Michael, for the majority of the time spent his days alone at home, only ever seeing his parents on weekends and even then it was rare. Despite this creating an emotional distance between him and his parents, Michael decided to concentrate his attention on other things, such as reading and focusing on school. However a reoccurring issue that many teachers would bring up, would be that for whatever reason, Michael would seem bored with the majority of classes, this was possibly due to his grades already being at the highest level and he felt as if it there was nothing to challenge him mentally. He began growing distant with his peers and sometimes never turning up to classes but still having exceptional test scores.
    This caused his mother, Kimberly to hire and private tutor, one of university standard. Only being 14 years of age around this time, This was a significant challenge for him, as it did push his brain to limits he had yet discovered, however, the more he learned and understood about the world? the more his personality began to shift. Closing into himself more and more to the point of complete and utter isolation of both his parents and even many of his friends.

    Fast forward to the year 2002 Much of Adrian's life from 7 years ago to this point remained a mystery. However, it is known that during that time, he had made contact with some friends overseas in the US who were looking to start something and possibly expand over to the UK. However, at the time Michael didn't seem very interested. Michael graduated from MIT University at age 21. Majoring in Political science and Psychology. He was recognized for his papers of psychoanalysis and how research on Neuroscience is conducted. Famed for his intelligence a year after graduation, Michael received news that his parents had both been killed during conferences abroad. Requesting their bodies to be buried in England, He made the return trip to England, where he personally buried their bodies and took care of their graves. A good friend of his mother, Claire had tasked with handing over the inheritance money his parents had left behind if they should die. The sum total rounded up to over 100 million pounds and Half of that was donated to charity upon Michael's request and another half saved in the family savings account should he need it for an emergency. However within a month? Michael had his house burnt to cinders, Erased all profiles of himself and mysteriously vanished...
