Adrian (aka Hadrian) was a pagan officer and a body guard at the imperial court of Nicomedia. Adrian declared himself a Christian, though he had not even been baptized, after witnessing the strength and faith shown by persecuted Christians.  He was immediately arrested and tortured. He and fellow prisoners were tended by his wife, Saint Natalia until they were executed in 304.
