In Stargate SG-1, Adria was the half-human, half-Ori child or 'Orici' that Vala Mal Doran was forced to carry. She was genetically altered so that she grew to an adult in a few days. She was also implanted with the collective memory of the Ori race. Adria was created to lead the Ori armies to the Milky Way Galaxy and convert the humans that lived there. Adria was captured by the Goa'uld Baal, who implanted her with one of his cloned symbiotes.The Tok'ra managed to remove the symbiote, but not before it released a toxin. Adria was forced to ascend or die. After she ascended, she assumed the power of all the Ori, who had been killed by the Saangral. After SG-1 activated the Ark of Truth, her power diminished enough that Morgan Le Fay was able to stop her.
There is a main belt asteroid named 143 Adria. It was discovered in 1875 and was named after the Adriatic Sea, since the discovery was made on the coast.
Adria is a feminine form of Adrian, meaning 'from Hadria.' In 2014, 59 girls were named Adria in the U.S.
