Physical Appearance:

  • He was a little shorter than Dimitri but wasn’t as lanky as some Moroi guys ended up looking in FB#10 p.135 (Rose)
  • He had brown hair that looked like it had been purposely styled to appear a little unkempt, and his eyes were either blue or green in FB#10 p. 135 (Rose)
  • His face was cute, and pegged him to be a couple years older in FB#10 p. 135 (Rose)
  • He exhaled loudly and raked a hand through the sable brown hair he always kept stylishly messy in SK#3 p. 34 (Rose)
  • This close to him I could appreciate just how lovely the green of his eyes was. In fact, despite continually making fun of him, I couldn’t deny that the rest of him was pretty good-looking too. His fingers were warm on my wrist, and there was some thing kind of sexy about the way he held it in SK#20 p. 290 (Rose)
  • He had beautiful emerald-green eyes that made most girls swoon, particularly since they were paired with stylishly messy brown hair in BP#4 p. 64 (Rose)
  • He was tall, like most Moroi, with a leanly muscled build in BP#4 p. 67 (Rose)
  • His hair stuck up at odd angles, and he had dark circles under his eyes in BP#10 p. 145 (Rose)
  • I took Adrian for granted so often that it was easy to forget he really was a hot guy in BP#11 p. 174 (Rose)
  • “He’s devastatingly handsome, funny, rich, related to the queen…” in BP#11 p. 176 (Avery)
  • “The sun glinted off his brown hair, giving it golden – chestnut highlights.” in BP#12 p. 195 (Rose)
  • “You look good today.” in BP#21 p. 338 (Rose)
  • He wore dark jeans and printed button-down shirt in shades of nacy and turquoise that looked fantastic with his dark green eyes. Those eyes, however, looked weary. Worn. That was a little odd. In those dreams, he could shape the world and even our appearances to what he wanted, with only a little effort. He could have looked perfect but instead appeared to be reflecting real-world fatigue. in BP#21 p. 338 (Rose)

Characteristics/Personality:

  • He had a nice laugh, rich and almost melodious. It made me think of warm caramel, dripping from a spoon in FB#10 p. 138 (Rose)
  • He was arrogant and presumptuous in FB#10 p. 139 (Rose)
  • A big fan of full-contact sports in FB#10 p. 139 (Adrian)
  • “I’m both a psychopath and a guy, that would explain why we’re such good friends.” in FB#10 p. 139 (Adrian speaking with Mia)
  • “You ladies should go. He’s right. I am a bad influence in FB#15 p. 203 (Adrian)
  • He’s weird— really weird, apparently— but harmless in FB#15 p. 205 (Rose)
  • Adrian was annoying and arrogant at times, but he really wasn’t the bastard I often made him out to be. in SK#12 p. 174 (Rose)
  • Adrian looked laconic as usual, but I could see some anxiety under that lazy smile. in SK#22 p. 329 (Rose)
  • He spoke in an exaggerated, silly sort of way that was characteristic of him. Adrian rarely took things seriously and always had a flippant edge in BP#4 p. 64 (Rose)
  • Adrian was so brash and flippant in public… and then, in my dreams, he’d show that serious and concerned side. He was more complex than anyone gave him credit for. BP#8 p.123 (Rose)
  • Adrian, who could detect women a mile away, also immediately noticed the newcomer in BP#11 p. 172 (Rose)
  • Adrian was a scoundrel at times and had never made his interest in me a secret, but walking Jill home wasn’t part of some grand seduction. He really was just being nice in BP#11 p. 175 (Rose)
  • “You’re as selfish and self-centered as usual. It’s always about you — even this dream is. You hold me against my will, whether I want it or not, because it amuses you” in BP#12 p. 199 (Rose to Adrian)
  • Despite Adrian’s infatuation with Avery, I couldn’t help but recall how kind he’d been to Jill the last time I saw them. He was worried about Lissa, too and he’d displayed none of his usual carefree bravado. He’d been serious and … well sweet in BP#19 p. 308 (Rose)

  • FB#11 p. 153 (first to walk in dreams with Rose)

  • “He goes through a lot of girls.” in FB#10 p. 148 (Christian)

  • Adrian was a royal Moroi we’d “acquired” on our recent ski trip. He was a few years older than me and had come back to St. Vladimir’s to work on learning spirit with Lissa. So far, he was the only spirit user we knew of. He was arrogant and spoiled and spent a lot of his time indulging in cigarettes, alcohol, and women. He also had a crush on me — or at least wanted to get me into bed. in SK#3 p. 34 (Rose)

  • Adrian use compulsion for the third time on Rose to chill her out in SK#25 p. 377
  • He meant what he said, and I realized all the affection for me he’d always teased about hadn’t been a joke either. Lissa had been right about his feelings. in SK#29 p. 433 (Rose)
  • Adrian was a Moroi, the queen’s great-nephew, and someone I’d left behind in my old life when I took off on this suicide mission in BP#4 p. 63 (Rose)

  • If anyone had asked me to make up a list of people most likely to risk a fight in defense of a lady’s honor, Adrian Ivashkov would have been low on that list. Yet there he stood, face hard and hand sitting protectively on Jill’s shoulder. I was in awe. And impressed. in BP#16 p. 278 (Rose)
  • He was good-looking and came from an important family. He was the queen’s great-nephew, and although family member of current monarch could never inherit the throne immediately afterward, he’d have a good future, one that would always keep him in the highest circles of society. in BP#24 p. 386 (Rose)
  • The look on his face was comical, but shocked or not, he’d picked up enough to target Simon. It was Adrian’s compulsion holding the guardian in place now. in BP#28 p. 453 (Rose)

Yup, that’s Adrian Ivashkov! […]
