アディーネ, The Elegant
Adiane the Elegant is the second of the Spiral King039s Four Supreme Generals and the only female general among their number. She is good friends with her fellow General Thymilph though Guame jokes that they had a closer relationship. She implies this friendship was strong because both Guame and General Cytomander treat her as an inferior because of her gender while Thymilph respected her as a warrior. After Thymilph039s death Adiane is stunned and vows revenge volunteering to attack the Team DaiGurren when given the opportunity by Lordgenome. Though she refused his aid as she blamed him for Thymilph039s death Adiane recruits Viral after he saved her from being crushed by the DaiGurren after an attempt to execute Nia once she learns Lordgenome abandoned her. But because of her boasting and staking of her pride on the task Adiane refuses to return to Teppelin until she destroys Team DaiGurren using the sea to her advantage when the DaiGurren crosses it on its way to Teppelin. Having Viral pilot her DaiGunkai to drag the DaiGurren into the cold depths Adiane engages in personal combat with the GurrenLagann in her Sayrune to ensure no interference. But the plan fails and Adiane attempts to take Nia hostage until Yoko disables the Sayrune039s shoulder leaving it opened to closerange fire from the DaiGurren039s artillery cannons and killing Adiane instantly in the explosion. Adiane looks almost completely human though she has a long thick scorpion tail and a snake eye. She wears an eyepatch over her left eye and dresses in a loose fitting dress and heels. She is intensely hot and impulsive often letting her anger get the better of her and land her in sticky situations or taking out her frustrations out on Viral. Despite this impetuous disposition she is extremely skilled and is able to battle five powerful Gunmen at once outside of her natural element of water. Adiane039s name is based on the DNA chemical adenine and the elemental Undine. Her Gunmen Sayrune is based on the mythical Azure Dragon Seiryuu.
