Set 50 years prior to the events shown in Battlestar Galactica, this spin-off prequel will explore the lives of two families: the Graystones and the Adamas. The two families are on opposing sides of the decision to create the Cylons: intelligent robots that will one day rebel and nearly annihilate the residents of Caprica.
William Adama (named after his deceased grandfather) was born in 69 BCH on Caprica, the son of Joseph Adama and Shannon Adama and raised in Qualai, a small coastal community (Caprica pilot, Hero). His father was a Tauron immigrant and an attorney specializing in criminal defense and civil liberties with ties to the criminal underworld. His mother was an accountant. Both his mother and his sister, Tamara, died in a suicide bombing on the Lev when he was 11. He was still in school when the First Cylon War started (Razor Flashbacks, Episode 1). During his childhood, he was considered small for his age and would often be beaten by his peers (deleted scene, "Exodus, Part II"). Because of anti-Tauron prejudice, Adama's father assumed the more Caprican-sounding surname Adams, but eventually the family reverted to the original Tauron name after 58 BCH (Caprica Pilot).
