Adar the Bombmaker is a character seen in the very beginning of Phoenotopia. As his name implies, his occupation involves crafting explosive weapons. He originally lived in Atai City, but once he started making bombs he had to find a new home further away from Atai as per the city's laws. This doesn't seem to bother him, though.


Adar is a heavyset person with light skin and red hair. He carries a large bag of bombs on his back, as well as a large bomb held in one arm.



Adar is a very responsible weapon maker, as he is well-known for using his bombs mostly for good, such as coming to Panselo every now and then to give the kids a fireworks show. Additionally, he also takes care so that no young ones get ahold of his bombs. When Gale talks to him in Panselo and asks him for some bombs, he replies that she isn't of age yet and that there are child endangerment laws. Gale replies that she is indeed of age, but he still refuses to give in.

Adar also remarks that every year he visits, Gale grows a little taller, but this year she has remained the same.

Unfortunately, Adar was abducted by the Collectors along with the rest of the Panselo adults while Gale was searching for her siblings in Duri Forest, but his bombs had been left at his house. Gale visits the abandoned house later, discovers Adar's bombs in a nearby cave, and decides to take them with her to help her break into the Desert Bandits' lair.

Phoenotopia Awakening

In Phoenotopia Awakening, though, the bombs are inside Adar's house, which is now locked from the inside. To get in, Gale needs to get the spare key from Garnet, Atai's local babysitter, in exchange for watching over Garnet's kids for a short while.
