Late 18th century
Camarilla; Clan Tremere
He was Embraced by Meerlinda herself shortly after she'd arrived in the New World. Diamond was born in Massachusetts, and everyone knew he was a "wizard." The inhabitants of his hometown often turned to him to resolve mysterious and petty crimes. Meerlinda recognized his potential, sought him out and took him into the clan. Even today, she favours him above her other childer.
Diamond has the rank of a Pontifex under his sire and is responsible for supervision of North American industry and economics as they relate to the occult and resides in the chantry in Connecticut, but he also very often visits the New York chantry. The increase in long distance trade and international politics pushed much of the balance of power into his hands.
He has come under fire in recent years over the state of the US economy and his inability to comabt the mysterious corporate powers that have motivated the Asian economic juggernauts.
