Simone Carsweld is a member of Syndicate and CEO of Pearl Paradigm, a Syndicate Construct in Hong Kong, China.
Simone was one of the first women to graduate from Radcliffe University in Business. She moved to London to further her interest in finance and business. She was ahead of her time and the men of the 1910s considered her eccentric and unwomanly. It was her mental brilliance and sound grasp of economics, however, that brought her to the attention of the Syndicate. She was recruited and Awakened, and under their tutelage rose quickly through the ranks within the organization.
She was ordered to Hong Kong after the Market Crash of 1987 to sort out the Convention’s interest there. She accepted the challenge and Pearl Paradigm was born and has directed the flow of money and power in Hong Kong since.
Simone often looks out over the Bay and to the skyline of Kowloon and onto China from her balcony on top of Pearl Paradigm’s building. She is still confident that her position has not been compromised with all the changes but is still wary and constantly looks out so as not to be surprised.
Simone has passed her century mark, but she looks 35 due to the ministrations of her Progenitor allies and her own Life magicks. She dresses in executive chic, wears her silver-blond hair in a short bob and uses make-up sparingly. She exudes an aura of unmistakable power, so much so that the predominantly male business world of Hong Kong accepts her presence among them without thinking. (World of Darkness: Hong Kong, p.110)
