Adelheid is the son of Rugal Bernstein. Together with his kid sister Rose, Adel commands the Sky Noah, a flying fortress. He confronts the winners of the KOF 2003 tournament, but his reasons for fighting are unclear. Rose is known to watch Adel's battles and play piano on the observation deck of the Sky Nova. She's proud of being Rugal's daughter, and will not suffer defeat.

Adelheid is such a girly boy... I wonder what manly-man Rugal thinks of his son. Nonetheless, a feminine male definitely isn't an uncommon thing in KOF. Most importantly, Adelheid's fighting style is similar to Rugal's... which instantly makes him a pretty cool character for KOF veterans. Adelheid's cool and flamboyant persona compliments his last name. In some ways, Adelheid seems like an "easy" and safe design for KOF. Since he's so closely based on Rugal, Adelheid isn't particularly "original" and probably won't bring any new fans to the KOF series.

Worth mentioning... Adelheid's sister, Rose, is also a cool design an effective support character for Adelheid's debut and design.
