Adie was a brave and fearless man who carried out his duties very conscientiously. When he realised that it was not possible for them to capture Griffin without the aid of doge, he decided to take the risk of moving out of the house despite the presence of the Invisible Man. He equipped himself with Kemp’s pistol and got out of the house as quietly as possible. After crossing the lawn, as he approached the gate, the Invisible Man asked him to stop. Immediately Adie’s grip on the revolver tightened. Then he was told to go back into the house. Adie refused to do anything of the sort and declared boldly that his movements were none of Griffin’s business. Unable to accept refusal, the Invisible Man pounced upon Adie immediately fired a shot into nothingness to kill him, ordering him to get back into the house. Adie resisted initially but then he agreed to comply with Griffin’s directions. However, while moving towards Kemp’s door, he turned all of a sudden and tried to snatch the pistol from Griffin. In a bid to do so, he got shot by the Invisible Man. Thus his effort to capture the Invisible Man was foiled.
