Hero is the main playable character in Everspace and Everspace 2. He is a clone of Adam Roslin, but unlike other typical clones, also has Roslin's memories alongside the usual pilot skills.


Hero slowly regained his original's memories throughout the events of Everspace. He started with an unknown mission and a set of coordinates given to HIVE, his ship's onboard AI. New memories were shown in flashbacks (somewhat like dreams) before jumping into a new sector that the player hasn't reached before, with some narration by Hero, and other information is revealed in encounters with Seth Nobu and Denara Roslin. After finally reaching his final destination, Adam Roslin's secret lab, he met his original and discovered that in order to have a full lifespan, he needs to kill other clones for DNA fragments to repair the clone factory's cloning process. This took long enough for Colonial Fleet Admiral Gorc to find the secret lab and Hero right after successfully repairing his DNA. Because of Adam's and the clones' knowledge of his plans to start another war with the Okkar, he was determined to exterminate them. After defeating Admiral Gorc, Hero (and other clones, though seemingly there was no contact between them) was finally free for the moment.

Everspace 2[]

After escaping from that region of space and the secret lab. He started working for Grady & Brunt as a wingman (going by the name Ross Adamov) to earn a ticket outside of the DMZ. Unfortunately, things don't go as planned: he is captured by an Outlaw chief named Bolton during a mission and is once again hunted by Colonial forces. Hero meets several new friends and companions that help him out. Ben, his engineer friend from G&B; Dax, a once fellow captive of Chief Bolton; and Delia, a G&B doctor found in a cryopod.

Other Adam Roslin Clones[]

Hero is not the only Adam Roslin clone in the universe. As a result of the cloning procedure Adam Roslin set in motion, there are many of them wandering the universe after the end of the events of Everspace. They also have full lifespans, thanks to the efforts of Hero repairing all of the DNA fragments. However, before all the DNA fragments were repaired it seems that some clones had different errors in DNA, as Hero had to kill other clones in order to get corrected fragments. Upon reaching the end of the Demilitarized Zone after defeating Admiral Gorc, the clones scattered to different places, each one choosing to jump to nearby inhabited planets, stations, or research labs. It is currently unknown what will happen to all of these Adam Roslin clones.
