For the canonical character from whom this depiction is based, see: Adar (TOS).

Adar is the President of the Twelve Colonies of Man prior and leading up to the events of the Battle of Cimtar.

In 7346, during Osiris's reign as Aeries councilor on the Quorum of Twelve, Adar has Colonel Adama removed from the Quorum in light of Lieutenant Apollo freeing Ensign Starbuck from (false) imprisonment aboard the Aerian Administration Hub (Battlestar Galactica: Starbuck 3).

When Starbuck presents McKintosh's incriminating information on Osiris's activities the night that Umbra fell, Osiris briefly takes Adar hostage and demands a shuttle. Starbuck saves Adar's life by mortally wounding Osiris, which leads to a prescient self-realization that "I really do seem to have a terrible judge of character."

Following this, Adar celebrates by promoting Starbuck and Apollo to Lieutenant and Captain respectively, reinstating Commander Adama's position in the Quorum, and installing Baltar in Osiris's vacant spot (Battlestar Galactica: Starbuck 4).
