Issue 1 (flashback)
Adalind Schade (born October 16, 1985 ("La Llorona") ("Maréchaussée")) is a Hexenbiest who first appeared in "Pilot". Nick Burkhardt first noticed her outside a jewelry store where she momentarily woged into her Hexenbiest form. She used to be a lawyer, but she resigned before leaving town. ("Woman in Black") She lost her Hexenbiest powers ("Love Sick") for almost two years before she regained them after giving birth to her daughter, Diana. ("Mommy Dearest") She is currently pregnant with her second child, which was revealed to be a boy, ("Iron Hans") with Nick being the father, after Adalind tricked Nick into sleeping with her so Nick would lose his Grimm powers. ("Blond Ambition") ("Bad Luck")
Adalind attempted to kill Marie, per Sean Renard's command, but Nick intervened and was injected with a portion of the drug she was planning to use on Marie. She left the hospital and got into a vehicle driven by Captain Renard, to whom she reported Nick's presence. Adalind was already known to Marie; there was a detailed entry about her in Marie's diary.
Renard again instructed Adalind to end Marie's life before she could give Nick some unspecified information that would make him unlikely to join whatever group the Hexenbiest and Renard represented. Adalind found assassins - human ones at Renard's instruction - and this time she succeeded, although the hirelings were killed by Monroe and Marie, who fought back. Adalind attacked a human who threatened to mug her and Captain Renard.
When Mellifers attacked and killed two of the Hexenbiest lawyers working for the same law firm as Adalind, and she was the next target, Nick protected Adalind from harm, as was his duty as a policeman, even though he recognized her from the attack on his aunt. Adalind was genuinely afraid and suspected that Captain Renard would sacrifice her. However, she was loyal and kept his secrets. She was attacked by Melissa Wincroft and wrestled with her; the Mellischwuler gained the upper hand in the fight until Hank appeared to save Adalind and Nick was forced to shoot Melissa, sparing Adalind's life.
Adalind had recently arranged to run into and socialize with Nick's partner, Hank. Apparently this was done in service to Captain Renard. When Hank was out having a drink with Sargent Wu, Adalind was seemingly stood up by a business associate. Her and Hank then had dinner together.
In front of a painting in an art gallery, Renard asked Adalind to report on her progress in getting Hank to like her. She replied that Hank was not interested since he believed she only liked him because he saved her life. Renard reminded her she knew how to make Hank love her. She listened and made potion-laced chocolate chip cookies. She offered them to Hank. After he took a bite, she told him not to share them with anyone else.
Adalind continued to feed Hank's obsession with her, staging a scenario involving another man coming to her apartment right after Hank had just seen her ignore a phone call from him from outside her apartment where he was spying. Renard then told her to stop ignoring Hank and to answer the phone the next time he called, which he soon did. They both agreed to have dinner the next night, which they did end up having at the Brasserie Montmartre.
Hoping to get Nick's key, Adalind told him to meet her in the woods and give her the key if he wanted Hank to live, whom she had put into a coma by having sex with him. During the fight, some of Nick's blood was ingested by Adalind, killing her Hexenbiest spirit and turning her into a regular human. She returned in tears to see her mother, Catherine Schade, but she slapped her when she discovered what had happened to her. Renard informed her that she was no longer of use to him and "just another pretty girl," and she walked out the door.
Adalind had a Himalayan cat named Majique (Mah-jeek), whom she dosed with some sort of toxin in its milk, turning the cat's tongue yellow. She brought the cat to Juliette's clinic, claiming Majique was acting lethargic and not eating. Majique then scratched Juliette on the hand, apparently introducing said toxin into the scratch. By the time Nick went to her apartment to confront her, she was gone with her apartment cleaned out, leaving behind only the near-empty bowl of milk and apparently the cat herself, who was left in the clinic's kennel.
Adalind called Sean Renard and asked him who killed her mother. Renard responded that they did not know and asked Adalind what she did to Juliette. Adalind answered that Nick took something away from her, so she took something away from him. When Renard told Adalind that Juliette was awake, Adalind correctly concluded that Renard must have had something to do with her waking up and told him that he was going to be having some fun, as was she. She then hung up.
In a Viennese opera house, Adalind met Eric Renard, and they begin a conservation, mentioning betrayal and that they knew somebody in common: Eric's brother Sean. Later, during the conversation at Eric Renard's Castle, Eric revealed Sean was his half-brother because his mother was a Hexenbiest and his dad's mistress, and Eric's mother was not happy about having a half-Hexenbiest in the family, forcing Sean and his mother to move to Portland. Then, she revealed to Eric what she knew about his brother and Nick.
Adalind returned to Portland in search of the key and to avenge her mother's death. She told Renard that he had forty-eight hours to produce Nick's key. Feigning friendliness, she led Juliette to reveal that Marie Kessler came to Portland in an SUV towing a trailer. She was arrested on suspicion of her mother's murder and taken to jail. She provided a strong alibi, which required verification.
Adalind was released from jail. As she left the precinct, she was stopped by Renard, who forced her to go with him. He asked her to "fix what's wrong with me," to which Adalind told him: "I can't fix you, but I can make it better." She started kissing him. She broke off to say: "I want you. The real you. I want what you would never show her." Renard then woged, and Adalind said: "Now we're talking." They started kissing as they frantically removed their clothes.
Later on, Adalind was with Renard at his home. Renard asked her if she had given any thought to what would happen to him if his brother gets Nick's Key. Adalind countered with the thought of what would happen to her if he doesn't. Renard told her there was still time to choose sides, to which Adalind replied that she did choose him a long time ago, and he turned his back on her. He said he would not underestimate her again but that she should not count on his brother for the same consideration. He then left, telling her to make herself at home.
Returning to his home, Renard encountered Adalind, who asked if he had found the key. He lied to her and said he needed more time. Adalind told him he was out of time and that there was a car waiting for her downstairs. She told him she would tell his brother that he tried "...so awfully hard." She then left. In Vienna, Adalind stood in a bathroom with a home pregnancy test device in her hand. The result was shown as being positive, and she smiled.
Adalind told Frau Pech, who had been able to detect her pregnancy, that the father was one of two half-brothers. Frau Pech correctly concluded that Adalind was carrying Royal blood and confirmed that she could help with the valuable child.
At the castle, Adalind met with Eric Renard and said that Sean Renard had not been able to get Nick's key yet. She told him that Sean told her he couldn't get it within the given time frame, even though he knew what his brother threatened to do if he did not. Eric said he'd have to pay his brother a visit. He then noticed something different about Adalind. She said it was just because she was with him.
Adalind was in Vienna, suffering from morning sickness when Frau Pech knocked on her door and instructed her that she was to meet Stefania Vaduva Popescu. When Adalind said that she was feeling ill, Frau Pech told her, "You do NOT want to offend them."
Adalind and Frau Pech arrived at the Schwarzwald Roma camp and were introduced to Stefania and her sons Dragomir and Lucian. Stefania explained that to calculate the true value of a child, the bloodline must be established. Adalind said she had that information. Stefania said that mothers lie, and only blood was the real truth. Stefania's sons held Adalind down on a divan while Stefania approached her with an archaic instrument with a long needle and a chamber as Adalind screamed.
In the encampment, Stefania mixed the blood with another liquid and the whole lot turned blue, confirming Royal blood. She then said that she would offer 500,000 Euros for a boy or 750,000 for a girl. Adalind said that she wasn't interested in money, only that she wanted her powers back. Stefania said that may not be possible, to which Adalind replied that she may not bring the baby to term and told Stefania, "Those are MY terms."
Adalind and Eric were starting to make out when Eric had to answer a telephone call from his father. Adalind eavesdropped on the call and heard Eric making disparaging remarks about Hexenbiests.
While waiting for a dinner appointment, Adalind was warned about Stefania by Frau Pech, who also warned her that to some people, she was worth more dead than alive.
Adalind was being served a meal in her hotel room in Vienna when she collapsed. The waiter left the room and told Frau Pech that the deed was done. Frau Pech then entered the room and completed her doppelgänger potion, turning into a facsimile of Adalind, while Adalind turned into a facsimile of Frau Pech. Frau Pech (as Adalind) answered the phone from Stefania and then left.
As Frau Pech died at Stefania's camp, Adalind reverted back to her own form, woke up, and said, "Ding dong! The witch is dead, and another is coming back."
Adalind was summoned to Stefania's abode, where upon arrival, she saw the body of Frau Pech cut open vertically through the chest. Stefania told her that she had to cut off Frau Pech's hands and feet and pluck out her eyes. She had to put the body parts in a bucket held by Stefania.
She then went with Stefania and her sons Miguel and Yanko to a field, where using a hand shaped entrenching tool, she had to dig a hole to bury the body parts. Once she had buried the parts, she had to fill in the hole using her bare hands. Once this was complete, she was embraced by some spirits, and then all the flowers in a circle around her died. Stefania told her she had to pick all the dead flowers.
With Stefania and her sons, Adalind returned to Stefania's abode where Stefania told her to put the dead flowers into the chest cavity of Frau Pech's corpse and then sew up the body. Stefania told her to bite the thread with her teeth to cut it.
After a while, the flowers and Frau Pech's insides became a paste that Stefania told Adalind to remove with her hands and put into a jar. Once she had the paste, Adalind took a shower and then applied the paste to her stomach. As it was absorbed into her skin, the paste briefly formed a skull before being fully absorbed into her skin.
Adalind was in Eric's castle and asked Sebastien who will be crowned Prince now, and he replied that it would be the "last man standing."
Later, she was in her hotel room watching a news report about Eric's death when she shed a tear of blood. There was a knock at the door, and it was a waiter bringing room service. Adalind said that she did not order room service. Unknown to her, Sebastien was watching, and he photographed her.
Adalind was in Vienna at the Medical Clinic getting an ultrasound by Doctor Hawelka to check on the status of her child. The doctor told her to be healthy, eat right, and exercise in moderation. The doctor then heard what sounded like two heartbeats, and Adalind asked if she was having twins, but the doctor said no, and it was probably just an echo, which left Adalind with worry for her child. Unknown to her, after leaving the clinic, Sebastien and Meisner were spying on her under Renard's orders.
Adalind was seen entering her hotel in Vienna when she received a call requesting her appearance at the castle by the new prince. She went to the castle and met the new prince.
Adalind talked with Prince Viktor about Eric's death as Viktor was trying to find those responsible for his death. Later, she was seen in her bathroom rubbing paste on her pregnant belly, unaware there were cameras in her hotel room planted there by Viktor.
Adalind enters her hotel room where she saw a note and a rose from Sean informing her that there were cameras in her hotel room and to get dressed for a meeting with him in a cafe.
Adalind entered the cafe for her meeting with Sean Renard, unaware that Meisner was there to watch out for unwanted guests. Renard kissed Adalind's cheeks, and she returned one on his lips. She and Renard discussed the cameras in her hotel room, her pregnancy, and the paternity of the child. Renard warned her about a rumor about someone selling a child with Royal blood. Renard told her, "When this becomes known, and soon enough it will, you’re going to have to choose a side," and then he left the cafe with Meisner.
Adalind was seen at the cafe going over documents while Meisner was at the bar spying on her on Renard's orders. After Adalind received her cup of coffee, she experienced pain in her stomach, which she ignored. When Adalind reached for her cup of coffee, the cup moved by itself, and Adalind was shocked. She then reached her hand towards the cup of coffee again, and again the cup moved back towards her hand, all of which Meisner saw. Then she experienced pain again, but this time it caused the lights in the cafe to blow out.
Later, Adalind returned to her hotel room and Meisner informed Renard of the events involving Adalind at the cafe, which Renard responded by saying Adalind was getting her powers back.
Adalind was seen entering the castle to meet with Viktor. Before entering the meeting room, she met Sebastian in the hallway, who informed her that Viktor was in a meeting with Gregor Danilov, the head of the Verrat and that she should be careful with what she says. She entered the room, and Viktor asked her some questions involving Sean Renard and his associates. Adalind told him she received a note from Renard informing her that he figured out who killed her mother and thought it was the Grimm. She told Viktor that she didn't see Renard, and then she left. Viktor and Danilov discussed whether Sean or Eric could be the baby's father and that the baby will be born Royal.
Later, when Adalind was in bed, she woke up in pain and saw the baby's face pushing out. It turns into a skull, and she screamed in agony.
Adalind met with Stefania, who put her ear to Adalind's stomach and told Adalind that the baby would arrive soon and that she needed to go into hiding. Adalind told Stefania that it had only been six months, and she should go the hospital instead of going into hiding. Stefania gave Adalind mandrake root to chew on to slow down the process.
Adalind was first seen on the monitor of her bedroom by Prince Viktor, when he received a visit from Stefania informing him of the status of the birth. If he wanted the child to be born in the castle, they had to get Adalind as soon as possible.
Later, Adalind received a call from Sean informing her of Stefania's betrayal and that the Verrat would soon be coming for her to bring her to the castle until she gave birth. She asked why she should trust him, and he responded that he believed he's the father, and Viktor wanted the child, so she should go with Meisner and Sebastien. She heard a knock on the door. Sean told her it was time to pick a side and hangs up. When Adalind opened the door, it was Meisner and Sebastien. Sebastien said he would wait downstairs to keep lookout while Meisner told Adalind to hurry and grab what she needed. Meisner received a call from Sebastien, who said Verrat agents were on their way to the room. Meisner told Adalind to answer the door as he took his shirt off and got into Adalind's bed with his gun. Adalind opened the door to the two Verrat members, and they entered the room where they met Meisner, causing voices to rise slightly. Adalind tried to calm down the situation, but one of the Verrat shoved her stomach hard, causing Adalind pain. Adalind gasped, and then a pen on her bedside table started to wobble. Meisner shot one of the Verrat, and before the other one could shoot Meisner, the pen launched into the eye of the Verrat member. Meisner thanked Adalind, but Adalind told him she didn't think that was her that made the pen move.
Meanwhile, during the car drive, Adalind asked why they were helping her. Meisner told her that she and her child were important to the Resistance, of which he, Sebastien, and Sean were members. Meisner told Sebastien to pull over, and he and Adalind got out of the car and walked into the woods until they reached a cabin belonging to Meisner's family.
Later, in the cabin, Adalind was in the bed after eating dinner and thanked Meisner for the meal, when she suddenly started to feel a lot of pain in her stomach. She told Meisner that the baby was coming and screamed in pain.
In the cabin, Adalind was in labor as Meisner tried to get things organized quickly. As he told her to breathe, Adalind told him just to get the baby out of her and to not let it kill her. Adalind held on to Meisner's hand as he was trying to get her to calm down and breathe, but Adalind ended up biting his hand. As soon as she did that, books on the bedside table flew at Meisner, forcing him to quickly duck. He told her to stop that, and she painfully asked, "Stop what?" He told her to keep pushing, and a few seconds later, the baby was born. Right after Adalind saw her baby, she woged into a Hexenbiest. She cracked a small smile as she realized that the trials with Stefania worked, and she had regained her powers.
While Adalind and the baby were sleeping, Meisner called Renard to tell him the news that Adalind gave birth to a girl.
Later in the night, Meisner put another blanket on Adalind. He reached down and pushed Adalind's hair to the side, and it started to wrap around his hand. He tried to get free without waking Adalind, but the baby woke up with glowing reddish eyes, staring at him. After a few seconds, Adalind's hair finally unwrapped from around Meisner's hand.
Adalind was seen cradling her daughter when Meisner arrived at the cabin and asked what she did to the baby, but she told Meisner that the baby was with her. He told Adalind that he heard the baby's heartbeat in the forest, and then Adalind remembered what the doctor told her about the two heartbeats. ("El Cucuy")
Later, Adalind thanked Meisner for saving her and her daughter from the Royals and the Verrat, and she later found out in their conservation that Meisner's girlfriend was killed two years ago by the Royals. Then, Meisner got a call from Sean informing him of Sebastien's disappearance, telling Meisner to head to Zurich, and he'd make arrangements for them to leave the country.
Then Adalind, Meisner, and the baby were walking in the woods to an unknown location.
Adalind was in the woods with her daughter and Meisner watching Viktor and the Verrat trying to find them. Adalind told Meisner about Viktor, and her daughter started crying. Adalind told Meisner that her daughter was hungry, and Meisner said to feed her later.
Adalind, Meisner, and the baby arrived to the cars that Viktor and the Verrat arrived in. They found Sebastien in the backseat of one of the cars, and Meisner checked on him but was quickly held at gunpoint by a Verrat agent. Adalind used her powers to save Meisner by forcing the Verrat agent to turn his gun on himself. She was then saddened when Sebastien decided to stay behind to try to make up for what he had done.
Later on the road, Meisner thanked Adalind for saving his life and received a call from Sean. Sean informed Meisner that Tavitian had someone in Zurich ready to get Adalind and the baby out of the country. Adalind asked Meisner if he was coming with them, but Meisner told her that he couldn't go with them because his fight was "here."
Adalind was seen with her daughter and Meisner driving to the drop point in Rafz, Switzerland. Meisner told Adalind to wait in the car. After he left, she was captured by two Verrat agents and was saved by Kelly Burkhardt. Later on the landing strip, Adalind thanked Meisner for saving her and gave him a goodbye kiss on the cheek.
Then on the plane, Adalind was informed by Kelly of the supplies on the plane, including diapers for the baby. Adalind knew Kelly was American and asked if she was working for the Resistance. Kelly said to Adalind that it was for the better the less she knew. Adalind got emotional and informed Kelly of her situationm and Kelly told her to change her baby's diaper.
While on the plane, Adalind's daughter wailed because of the air pressure on the plane, and Kelly taught Adalind to rub her finger under her daughter's ears. Kelly told Adalind that it was not easy to be a mom. Adalind asked if Kelly had children, and Kelly lied that her sister had one. Then Kelly told Adalind it was tough raising a baby on the run. Adalind told Kelly thank you for saving their lives, and Kelly informed her that the Royals wouldn't hurt the child, but they would hurt her. Then Kelly asked Adalind if she was keeping the baby, and Adalind responded, "I won't let anyone take my child," and that they would have to kill her first. Kelly told her, "Now you sound like a Mother." Kelly asked when was the last time she slept, and Adalind let Kelly take the baby while she slept.
When Adalind, Kelly, and the baby arrived in Oregon, Adalind, they landed on a field nearby a farm. When they were approached by a farmer who wanted to call the Sheriff, Kelly knocked him out. Kelly, Adalind, and the baby then entered his truck. During the drive, when Adalind saw the Portland sign, she was upset that she was going back to Portland and asked Kelly if she knew Sean Renard.Nick and Juliette's Home, Adalind, Nick, Juliette, and Kelly got into a disagreement in which Juliette told Adalind off about what she did by putting her in the coma. Adalind asked Nick if he was going to kill her and the baby, but her baby then used her powers to cause the house to shake, bend a spoon on the table, and cause a photo to crack. Juliette then noticed how wet the blanket around the baby was and ordered Adalind upstairs to dry off the baby.
In the bedroom, after Juliette dried off the baby, she asked Adalind how old she was, and Adalind responded maybe 10 days old. Juliette then asked what the baby's name was, and Adalind responded that she didn't have one yet because too many people were trying to kill them. She then asked Juliette why she was helping her and why Nick didn't kill her. Juliette responded that Nick should have tried to kill her the last time she was in Portland.
Later, when Nick, Juliette, and Kelly were arguing about what to do with Adalind and the baby, Adalind snuck out with the baby and took the stolen truck to Sean's condo. There, Sean and Adalind discussed Kelly Burkhardt and the surprise visit to Nick and Juliette's house. Sean eventually held the baby for the first time, as Adalind told the baby to say hello to her father.
Adalind got food from Sean's fridge while he held the baby. Sean told her she should stay away from the windows of his home because the less people who know she was there, the better. Sean asked her how she got to his house, and she told him about the stolen truck. Sean's intercom buzzed, and he was told that Nick was downstairs. Sean said to send him up, which didn't make Adalind very happy. She told Sean to make sure he was alone, and if he tried to take the baby, then kill him.
When Nick arrives, Adalind asked what he wanted. He told her he wasn't there to hurt her or take her baby. Nick said that his mom risked her life to help her, and Adalind asked what would she have done if she'd known she was a Hexenbiest and woged. Nick told her that the best chance that her and the baby had was for them to work together. Nick told Adalind and Renard that when they were ready, they'd talk.
After Nick left, Renard told Adalind he would do everything he could to protect the baby, so she should stay with him. Adalind asked if that meant they were back together, and he said he guessed so. While they were talking, Renard got a call from Nick to warn him about the men on their way up. Renard hung up and told Adalind they needed to go. They headed to the elevator, and as soon as they got to it, Nick came out of one. He told them to be quiet for a second, and he used his enhanced hearing to figure out the men were coming up the stairwell. After both Verrat men were defeated, everyone left the building.
Everyone arrived at Monroe and Rosalee's Home, but before they went in, Adalind said she wanted to know where she was, but she was told by Kelly that it was better she didn't know; that way, the people after her wouldn't know where to look. Inside, Rosalee got Adalind and the baby settled. After everyone left, Adalind told Rosalee that she didn't want to be alone, and Rosalee said she wouldn't be.
Later that night, the baby was crying, and Adalind couldn't get her to stop. Monroe and Rosalee got out of bed to see what was going on. Rosalee noticed the baby had a little fever which could be why she was crying so much. Suddenly, all the clocks in the house went wild as the baby started crying harder. Suddenly, she stopped crying, and the clocks calmed down. Monroe asked what just happened as Kelly walked into the living room.
The next morning, multiple cops burst into the house to arrest Kelly for the murder of Catherine Schade, surprising Adalind.
Adalind and Renard talked on the phone about what just happened, and Adalind explained her confusion because she thought Nick had killed her mom. Renard said there was new evidence, and he needed her to come to the precinct to make a statement about where she was when her mother died. Adalind said she wasn't leaving the baby, so Renard told her to bring the baby with her, and he would send a patrol car to pick them up.
When Adalind arrived, an officer took her to Renard's office. Renard said the officer would take her to the interview room, so she could leave the baby with him. Adalind handed the baby to Renard, and Adalind said she thought of a name for the baby; Diana.
When Adalind arrived to the interview room, she was surprised to find Kelly there too. Adalind asked what she was doing there, and Kelly said she wanted to talk to her because, at the very least, she owed her an explanation. Kelly told Adalind that she was looking for her the day Catherine died because of what she did to Juliette. ("Woman in Black") ("The Kiss") Kelly said that Catherine wouldn't say anything, so she had to make her because her other choice was to let Juliette die. While they were talking, Renard left the precinct with Diana. In the interview room, Adalind said she was angry at Nick because he took her powers. ("Love Sick") Adalind asked why they were having this conversation, and Kelly said she had to give up Nick because of who she was, and if she hadn't done so, he might have been killed. Adalind told her that's her problem, and if she was looking for forgiveness, she didn't have any. Kelly said she wasn't looking for forgiveness, but she wanted her to understand that "sometimes we have to sacrifice what we love most." As soon as Kelly said that, Adalind suddenly realized what was going on and ran out of the room looking for Renard.
Adalind went to Renard's office, only to find him and Diana no longer there. She asked Wu where he was, and he said Renard just walked out a few minutes ago. Adalind ran off and saw Renard as he came back inside. She demanded to know where her daughter was, and Renard said he had no choice because Viktor would have killed both of them if he didn't give Diana to him. Renard said it was the only way to protect her, and Adalind ran outside to the street and frantically looked around for Viktor. Once she realized he was gone, she woged and let out a screaming roar that broke all nearby car windows and set off their alarms before collapsing to her knees, crying in the middle of the street.
Adalind went to Nick and Juliette's house and said she needed Nick's help. She told Nick that Renard gave Diana to Viktor and that he tried to act like he didnt't know anything. Adalind told Nick he had to get his mom out of jail and said she didn't care that Kelly killed her mom because it was probably her fault anyway. Nick told Adalind that Kelly was released a couple hours ago and already left town, and he had no idea where she went. Adalind told Nick that he had to help her get Diana back then. Juliette walked up to Adalind and said if the Royals had her baby, they wouldn't be in Portland anymore, causing Adalind to woge. She angrily said she wasn't giving up her baby and stormed out of the house after Nick said there was nothing they could do.
Renard pulled into the parking garage of his condo building, and Adalind stepped in front of him, causing him to slam on his breaks. Renard got out of his car, and Adalind told him to get Diana back. Renard said he couldn't, which caused Adalind to woge and shove Renard back, making him hit the front of his vehicle. He woged, and Adalind said she hated him and hit him in the face, leaving behind three scratch marks. She tried to hit him again, but Renard grabbed her hand and said he didn't blame her for hating him. They both retracted, and Adalind calmly asked him to help her. Renard said he didn't know how, and Adalind said, "Figure it out because one day I'll stop crying."
The next day, Adalind went to Monroe's home, told Rosalee that Diana was taken from her, and hugged Rosalee.
Later in the day, Rosalee brought Adalind a drink to help her rest, despite Adalind saying she didn't want to rest. Rosalee said she needed to go to the spice shop, but she wasn't leaving until Adalind fell asleep. Later, Monroe put a blanket over Adalind as she slept before leaving with Nick and Hank.
Adalind awoke to a knock at the door. Once she realized no one else was home, she got up to answer the door. She was happily surprised to see that it was Sean who had Diana in his arms. Sean started to hand the baby to Adalind, but he then handed her to Viktor, which caused Adalind to scream and wake up from her nightmare. As soon as she woke up, she grabbed the phone and dialed a number. At the castle, Viktor was informed that Adalind was calling, and Viktor said he would take the call. Adalind apologized for everything and pleaded for her baby, saying she'd do anything, even if she had to come back to Europe. Viktor looked at Marcus Rispoli, surprised that Adalind thought they still had the child. Viktor told Adalind he'd think about it and told her to call back later. Adalind sat on the couch, woged, and said she was done crying.
Viktor was sitting in front of his fireplace when Adalind called back. Viktor continued to make her think he had Diana still and said, "It's time to return the favor (after she mentioned that her powers were taken from her). You have the blood of the Grimm in you. That makes him vulnerable."
Renard was getting ready to head home from the precinct when Wu told him that Adalind was there to see him. She slowly walked toward him after saying she wasn't sure she'd ever forgive him. She said that maybe he did make the right decision because the Royals would have continued to come after them. She hugged Renard, much to his surprise, and smiled. Renard then took Adalind home with him.
Captain Renard brought Adalind to a hotel suite for her to stay at for awhile. Renard told her he would be across the hall, but she told him she wanted him to stay. Renard said he didn't think it was a good idea, and Adalind asked him if he was afraid of her. He said he was, and she said she was afraid of him too, but she wanted him to stay because she was more afraid of being alone. Renard then agreed to stay with her.
Later, Adalind went to talk to Frank Ellis about her mother's will. He told her that her mother hadn't payed taxes for the past seven years before she died, so once everyone was paid, there was only a balance of a little more than 1,500 dollars left. Frank told her that money had mostly been used up to pay for the storage unit where her personal belongings had been kept and gave her a key to the storage unit.
She went to the storage unit, opened the door, and began looking around for an unspecified object. She found a chest and looked through it. She found a book, but when she tried to open it, she had no luck. She pulled hard and accidentally threw the book into a mirror, shattering the glass. She grabbed a shard of the broken glass from the mirror and tried to pry the book open. She accidentally cut herself, and when blood dripped on the book, it steamed and quickly opened.
Renard arrived to the hotel room that he and Adalind were staying at and found her tending to a cut on her hand, which she attempted to shrug off. ("My Fair Wesen") Adalind then confided in him her worries of their baby's well-being in the hands of Viktor. Renard commented on her cut and told her he could ask more questions about what she'd been up to, but he wouldn't. Adalind walked over to him, and Renard said, "If I didn't know you better, I'd be in love with you." The two of them then began kissing.
Adalind later called Juliette's work to find out when she'd be in and then quickly covered up her call as Renard walked in to investigate.
Outside the Hotel Deluxe, Wu saw Adalind getting into a taxi and called Renard to notify him, who told him to call the cab company to find out where the taxi was taking her.
Adalind went to Nick's house and knocked to see if anyone was home and, seeing that the house was empty, broke in using her Skeleton Key. She went into Nick and Juliette's room and took some of Juliette's clothing and her hair from a brush. Going back downstairs, Renard approached Adalind and attempted to stop her from taking them. Adalind then used her powers to throw a vase at Renard's head, knocking him out, and she escaped.
Back at the storage unit, Adalind was making a potion. She put the hair she collected from Juliette's brush into the cauldron and vapor emitted. Adalind grabbed a Witch's Hat and placed it over the cauldron, making a funnel-like chimney for the vapor to come out of. She inhaled the vapor three times, causing her to transform into Juliette.
In the storage unit, Adalind inhaled the vapor coming out of the top of the witch's hat and changed into Juliette.
At his hotel, Renard was surprised to have a visit from who he thought was Juliette, but unbeknownst to him was really being visited by Adalind disguised as Juliette. She said that she needed to talk to Adalind and him. She expressesed her condolences for Adalind, and Renard told her she didn't want to get involved with Adalind at the moment. Renard mentioned Adalind was in her house. and Adalind asked basic questions such as "when" and "how do you know that" to keep her act going. Adalind walked up to Renard and said that she had been confused ever since they went through what they went through and kissed Renard. Adalind's potion started to wear off, so she "apologized" and left quickly, leaving Renard confused, as he thought the situation with Juliette was long over. Adalind got in a taxi still looking like Juliette and told the cabbie where to drop her off. Adalind sat in the backseat as her potion continued to wear off.
Adalind's taxi arrived to the storage unit, and when the cabbie turned around, he was surprised to see that Adalind looked different than when she got in as the potion had fully worn off. Adalind just smiled and paid the cabbie before she got out of the taxi.
Juliette answered the phone, and it was Adalind calling. Adalind told Juliette that she thought Sean's obsession with her may have returned and asked Juliette if she had had any feelings lately for him. Juliette said no, and Adalind said just in case the problem was returning, she would mix something up to help both of them, but Juliette insisted on no potions or mixing of anything. Adalind said she understood her concerns and hung up.
Later, Juliette received another call from Adalind, who said she was checking up on her, and Juliette told her Sean called. Adalind said she had a spray that would make everything between them end again, and Adalind offered to come over. Juliette said no because she had too many things to do. Adalind offered to leave the spray with Nick, but Juliette said he was busy getting ready for a wedding. They both hung up, and Adalind inhaled more of the potion vapor to turn into Juliette once again, and she left the storage unit.
Nick went to his room to get ready for Monroe and Rosalee's wedding, but before he did anything, Adalind posing as Juliette came out of the bathroom wearing Juliette's negligee, which grabbed Nick's attention. Before long, the two of them began having sex. Afterwards, Nick went to the bathroom to get ready for the wedding. Adalind put her clothes on and headed downstairs to leave, but before she could leave, she ran into Trubel coming out of the kitchen. Trubel joked that she wasn't cooking anything... except bacon. Adalind replied that she hated bacon and left. Trubel asked if she was going to the wedding, but Adalind closed the door. Trubel was curious, so she decided to follow her. Trubel watched as Adalind got into a taxi. As the taxi pulled away, she was surprised to suddenly see a blonde woman in the back of the taxi instead of Juliette.
At the storage unit, Adalind grabbed what she needed, including a passport, and locked the unit up. She soon got on a plane to Europe and thought about getting Diana back from Viktor.
Adalind arrived at the gates of Kronenberg Castle. Viktor and Rispoli came down, and Adalind told them she took away Nick's powers. Viktor was not sure, but Rispoli said that he doubted she came all this way without accomplishing what he asked for. Viktor let her in, and they led her into the castle's dungeon while Viktor talked about how well her baby had been growing. However, Viktor then pushed Adalind into her dungeon cell revealed to her that he didn't have her baby and that the Resistance took her. Adalind woged in anger, but Viktor walked away, telling her that the cell was built for Hexenbiests.
Adalind received a bowl of gruel through a slot in the bottom of her cell door. She looked at it in disgust and threw it against the wall. She went to sleep and woke up to see rats everywhere. She woged and screamed, scaring the rats away. She then saw a hole in the wall appear and heard some chuckling. She approached and said to the voice that her name was Adalind, but the voice responded with, "My name is for me to know and you to find out," followed by more chuckling. The hole closed and the voice disappeared.
A little bit later, Adalind and Nick both got a severe headache at the same time and were briefly able to see through the other's eyes.
Adalind was in her cell when she saw the small hole appear in the wall again and looked through it. She saw someone else look though from the other side, and they said, "I see you," before closing the hole. Later, Adalind woke up in her cell and quickly stood up. She walked over to the cell door, woged, and screamed, "Open!" She was met with a high pitched frequency, forcing her to cover her ears.
Adalind sat in her cell as the hole in the wall appeared again. The man on the other side asked if she would be happy if he could show her how to get out. She asked if he knew a way out, and he said he does. He said, "Six stones in, three stones high." She asksed what that meant, and he repeated himself. Adalind stood up and felt the stones of her cell wall. She pushed one stone and crawled into a larger room as the stone closed behind her. The man lit a candle from where he was crouching on the floor and told Adalind his name was Hofmann. He then asked if she wanted to find her baby. She hesitantly said yes and asked if he knew a way out. He said that it would be a treacherous journey and she'd need her strength. He handed her a small box, telling her to eat what was inside. She grabbed a brownie and began to eat. Hofmann stood when he heard dogs barking and told her that they had to go, leading her down a tunnel out of the cell.
Adalind and Hofmann walked up stairs at the Kronenberg Castle and Adalind asked how much further. Hofmann shushed her and told her not to wake them. Confused, Adalind told him there was no one there. Suddenly, a face appeared in the wall and told Adalind he knew where her baby was. More faces appeared saying the same thing but in different languages. Hofmann told her not to listen to them and to keep going with him. The faces kept repeating themselves, and Adalind yelled at them to tell her where her baby was. She then covered her ears and started crying. The faces then started crying as well, and water began to flood down the stairs. Adalind begged them to stop.
The water kept rising as the faces continued to cry. Eventually, Adalind was underwater at the ceiling.
In Vienna, Adalind was struggling in the water until she was suddenly in another part of the castle. She asked how she got there, and Hofmann came up and said that he had told her not to wake them. She said they knew where her baby was, and he tells her she heard what she wanted them to say. Hofmann tried to get her to come with him, but she heard crying and ran back. She ran a little bit and stopped. She turned around and saw herself running up stairs and followed. Later, in the castle, Adalind chased her image, asking where her baby was. She lost track of herself and opened a door where she found herself holding a plate with Hofmann's head and rats on it.
Then in Vienna, Adalind was passed out on the ground in a new room, and Hofmann came up to her to help her up. He said that he told her not to go back and then told her not to stop when entering the next room and to get to the door on the other side. She asked how she would open the first door, and Hofmann told her she would open it with him, and when she turned around, there was a key where Hofmann was standing. She opened the door and entered a brightly lit baby's room. Just before she opened the door to the next room, Adalind heard a baby cooing in the bassinet by the door. She looked in the bassinet and saw Diana. She picked her up, but Adalind suddenly realized she had a pig in her arms instead of Diana. She dropped the pig and turned to the door, but the door handle broke off. Adalind screamed and pounded on the door, and then she suddenly fell through the floor.
At the castle, Adalind finished falling and realized she was still in her cell. Viktor came in and asked if she'd had enough. Adalind tells him she'd do anything if he made it stop. She asked what he wanted from her, and he replied, "I want the same thing you want. To get our child back."
Adalind was brought into a room at Kronenberg Castle, and Viktor and Rispoli talked about new information that they needed to move quickly on that may involve Meisner. Viktor offered her food, which she waas hesitant to eat after what she went through in her cell, but Viktor grabbed a piece of food and took a bite to show her that it was fine. Viktor spoke with Adalind about her escape to Portland. Viktor asked how Meisner knew the Verrat were waiting for them, and Adalind told him he didn’t. Adalind told him that it was Kelly Burkhardt who brought her and Diana to Portland, where they ended up at Nick’s house. Viktor asked how Renard convinced her to give her baby up, and she told him that he had her come to the police station to talk about her mother’s murder. She told Viktor that Renard then told her that he gave the baby to him. Adalind asked Viktor how he lost Diana, and he said the Resistance was waiting for them at the airport.
At Kronenberg Castle, Rispoli looked at a copy of the New York paper reporting Kelly Burkhardt's death 21 years ago and told Viktor and Adalind that because the victims' heads were missing, dental records could not be used, and the bodies were burned beyond recognition. Adalind told them that the woman who took her to Nick's house was definitely his mother, and her head was very much intact. Adalind asked how they're going to find her baby, and Rispoli said that the last place anyone saw Kelly was in Portland.
At the castle once again, Adalind woged as Viktor woke her up. Viktor told her that it was time to go to Portland, but Adalind told him she was never going back there because she'd be killed. Viktor told her that she would not be going alone, however, as the only people who had any connection to her child were there. He told Adalind that he and Rispoli would be going with her to Portland too.
Adalind arrived back in Portland to the Hotel with Viktor and Rispoli, and Viktor opened a closet for Adalind that was full of new clothes, shoes, and more as reconciliation. Renard soon after walked in, surprising Viktor, and after a brief conversation on who Viktor suspected had killed Eric, Renard asked where Adalind is. Adalind came out, and Renard began talking about the last time they were in Portland and that Viktor threatened to kill him and his mother. Renard then told them he doesn't have Diana, and Adalind said they knew Nick's mother had her. Renard said he gave Diana to the one person he thought would protect her. Adalind started going towards Renard, but Viktor grabbed her arm and says they're going to remain civil for now. Viktor told Renard that he had better make use of the means at his disposal for being a police captain to find out where Diana was because they were not leaving without her.
Adalind went up to Viktor and told him they need to get to Juliette. Viktor said not yet, and Adalind, growing impatient, asked what they were doing. Viktor told her it was called back channel diplomacy. Rispoli then came into the room and said, "He's here." Adalind asks who, and Viktor told her to watch and hopefully learn. Sam Damerov came in, and Viktor asked what Renard told him. Sam told him about the truck Kelly was driving before she sold it, and Viktor asked if he could find her. Sam assured him that he could. Sam left, and Viktor told Adalind that that was diplomacy. She told him to let her try it on on Juliette. Later, Adalind sat in her car and watched as Juliette arrived home. Once Juliette went inside, Adalind drove away.
Later, Adalind knocked on Nick and Juliette's door, and Juliette asked what she wanted. Adalind said she wanted her child, and Juliette told her she was calling Nick. Adalind used her Skeleton Key to get into the house, and Juliette told her she wanted her out. Adalind told her she should be thanking her for giving her a normal life, but Juliette responded, "Is that what you think you gave me?" They continued bringing up past events to attack each other with until Juliette demanded her to leave again. Adalind said she would leave if she came with her. Juliette said no, and Adalind woges, telling her that wasn't a suggestion. She then telekinetically tried to hit Juliette with a vase, but Juliette stopped it in mid air with her own telekinetic abilities before flinging it at Adalind. Juliette woged, and they began fighting. They both got multiple hits on each other and threw each other around the house, but soon Juliette started to take control of the fight, causing Adalind to run out the door in shock. Once in her car, Adalind started screaming.
Adalind approached Renard outside of the cafe to discuss their daughter and Viktor's search for her, and Renard told her that once he had their daughter, he wouldn't need her anymore. Then they discussed Nick's getting his powers back and Juliette's new status as a Hexenbiest as the likely reason Nick got his powers back, as well as Sean sending Juliette to Henrietta. Then, she pleaded with Renard to fight for their daughter: "You and I need to be on the same side. It’s us against them, and I’ll do whatever it takes to save our daughter. I want you with me." He responded, "Damn, you’re good! I really do want to believe you." "For once, you should," she responded as she then exited his SUV.
Later at night, she visited Henrietta at her home to discuss Juliette and how powerful she had become. Henrietta then sensed something else and told Adalind, "Congratuations." Adalind said, "For what? Figuring out it was you?" Then, Henrietta stated that Adalind really didn't know what she was talking about and told Adalind that she was having a another baby. Adalind told Henrietta that she had not been with anyone else, and Henrietta said that there must have been someone and that she didn't do this herself. Adalind then remembered the spell she used to trick Nick into losing his powers by becoming Juliette and sleeping with him. Upon this realization, Adalind let out a long yell of "No!"
At her hotel room, Adalind was waiting for the results of her pregnancy test, and when she entered the bathroom, she saw the results were positive on three different tests. She freaked out and responded, "I can't have another baby, I don't even know where the first one is!" Then, she calmed herself down, telling herself to breathe and told her unborn child that she'd find it another father, deciding that she would have to sleep with someone. Then she heard Viktor's voice and decided that Viktor was the best choice for that "someone" but was stopped when she saw Frederick Renard in the hallway. She asked where Viktor was, and the King responded by telling her that he had Viktor sent home, and he was bring another Royal into Portland. He told Adalind that she would stay there since she was family, and he didn't like the way Viktor had put her in the dungeon. ("Octopus Head") Then, Frederick told Adalind that once they had Diana, she'd be "where she belongs" and would be raised by the family because she had Royal blood.
Adalind spoke with Rispoli about Viktor, asking him if he was even still alive, to which Rispoli responded that he shouldn't worry about him anymore and that he was loyal to the family, not just one member. Adalind asked him if she was a member of the family, and Rispoli side-stepped the question a bit by only saying her daughter was. She started becoming a bit impatient, asking if anyone was doing anything to find her. Just as Rispoli was about to tell her that the King was doing everything he could do find her, he received a call informing him that Prince Kenneth was on his way to Portland. They briefly discussed Kenneth, with Rispoli telling Adalind to get dressed and that the Royal's reputation was simply "results."
Adalind had not gotten dressed yet when Rispoli let Kenneth in her room to introduce himself. He told her that he was in Portland for one reason only, which was to get her child back to the Royal family. He then asked her how her encounter with Nick's girlfriend, Juliette, went, to which she replied that Nick was a Grimm again. Adalind said that he had apparently undone what she did, even though she thought it wasn't possible but added that it would explain why Juliette is now a Hexenbiest. After asking Adalind if she had "any other surprises" for him, he opened up her robe and noticed that she was pregnant and asked her who the father was. She lied that it was Viktor's.
Adalind later came back dressed, and when asked by Kenneth if she had told Viktor the "blessed news," said that she was planning to. She stayed for Kenneth's meeting with Sam Damerov, as she had done before when he met with Viktor, but Kenneth gave Damerov a vicious beating in front of both her and Rispoli after telling him that he no longer worked for the family, despite Damerov's claims that he was loyal to only the Royals. With Damerov gasping on the floor, he told Adalind that he was more "hands-on" than Viktor and told her that the latter was sterile. He advised Adalind that she should "re-think" who the father is, revealing that he had caught Adalind in her lie.
She complained to Kenneth that her clothes no longer fit her with her pregnancy continuing to progress. Kenneth told her that he would send someone to go with her to shop for new clothes, which she said she could do herself. Kenneth told her that this was not a discussion, however, and had Rispoli assign a bodyguard to accompany her.
When she was shopping, she noticed the reflection of Juliette in a store window. She turned around and briefly saw her before traffic obscured her view, and Juliette got out of sight. At that moment, her bodyguard looked up and noticed a statue of a gargoyle was about to fall on top of her, and he dove to move her out of the way, saving her life as the statue crashed onto the sidewalk.
She returned to the hotel she was staying and was visibly upset while talking to Kenneth about what had happened. She told him that she was sure she saw Juliette and that she had made the statue fall, adding that Kenneth needed to kill Juliette before Juliette kills her. Kenneth told her not to be stupid and that Juliette was still needed because she had helped Kelly Burkhardt take Diana and may know how to get in touch with her. Kenneth added that it might be to their advantage that Juliette was now a Hexenbiest as well because of the likelihood that it has adversely affected her relationship with Nick. Kenneth surmised that Juliette was coming after Adalind because she blames her for what's happened.
Adalind is very poised and graceful. However, she is also treacherous, seductive, manipulative, uncaring and highly intelligent. Following the loss of her powers she became more ruthless and vengeful, and although still arrogant and poised, she was well aware she was a lot weaker. She showed an uncharacteristic vulnerability when she kissed Meisner on the cheek while thanking him for saving her life. She has shown a lot more emotion since she gave birth. After originally agreeing to give her baby to Stefania after she gave birth, she has been very protective of Diana and is careful about who she lets hold her. When she learned that Sean handed Diana over to Viktor, she ended up breaking down crying in the middle of a street once she realized Viktor had already left with her daughter.
In her human form Adalind is a beautiful woman in her late 20's. She wears designer clothing designed to accentuate her natural beauty. She goes to extraordinary lengths to maintain her complexion, including applying leeches to her face to keep the skin pale. She is below average height for a North American white female and has blonde hair. Her Hexenbiest form has the stretched skin of a corpse, with white hair. Although some teeth are missing, the others are all in good condition.
- Sean Renard - Prior to the series pilot, Adalind had a relationship with Sean Renard. ("Love Sick") Even after they broke up, she remained close by, working for him, and possibly for the Royals with which Renard is associated. All that remained of the relationship was severed when Renard cast her off as "just another pretty girl" when Nick stripped her of her powers. She and Sean later had a one night stand, partially due to a spell he gained from breaking her curse on Juliette and she gave birth to his daughter.
- Nick Burkhardt - Nick and Adalind first met when Adalind tried to assassinate his aunt. Following that, Adalind treated Nick with contempt and tried to force him to give her his key. However, Nick stripped her of her Hexenbiest powers. The two mutually loathe and hate each other. Nick is the father of her unborn son from when she tricked Nick into sleeping with her to take away his Grimm powers. ("Blond Ambition") ("Bad Luck") ("Iron Hans")
- Hank Griffin - At the behest of Sean Renard she started a relationship with Hank because he was the partner of Nick Burkhardt. The relationship is now purely business because she once tried to kill him ("Love Sick") and had him attacked by Hundjägers ("Season of the Hexenbiest").
- Eric Renard ( ) - After losing her powers, Adalind moved to Europe where she quickly started an intimate relationship with Eric Renard. She is likely working for the Royal Family in Vienna as evidenced by her most recent visit to Portland as an employee of GQR while seeking Nick's Key. Adalind manipulates Eric using her beauty and charm, but is a the same time fearful of the prince knowing he is a very dangerous and powerful man.
- Catherine Schade ( ) - When Adalind still had her powers, she was close to her mother, but her mother distanced herself once she lost them. She still cared about her mother as evidenced by her desire to find out who killed her.
- Frau Pech ( ) - Adalind was very respectful of the elder Hexenbiest, and took her advice regarding her pregnancy. That is until Frau Pech sought to control the child, when she conspired with Stefania Vaduva Popescu to kill her.
- Stefania Vaduva Popescu - She was introduced as the Queen of the Schwarzwald Gypsies by Frau Pech, and has entered into a contract with Adalind for her unborn child in return for her powers back.
- Juliette Silverton - They met and apparently became friends after a double date with Hank and Nick. She infected Juliette with L'esprit ailleurs using her cat as an agent. When Juliette awoke from her coma, Adalind used their friendship to learn about the existence of the trailer. After Juliette recovered, Nick told her about Adalind's part in her illness and she now despises Adalind.
- Viktor von Konigsburg - After Eric Renard's death, Viktor kept her as an employee of the Royals, and spied on her. Viktor is seeking to take possession of her and Sean Renard's daughter, Diana Schade-Renard.
