In Book One, Curse of the McRavens, Marston has just been offered the opportunity to attend Mystic Steeples, where he plans to try to get accepted into Graven Dust Coven. The prospects of making Graven Dust look good for him and his sister, Twila, because the Diamones are prominent members of the Sanguinati elite. Graven Dust is the most exclusive and traditional coven of the Sanguinati.
Marston Quote: “Can you believe it? Sorcerers and Nizzertits are gaining acceptance into Mystic Steeples. The vespercestors won’t listen to me. They’ll probably be admitting Nockies into Mystic Steeples next. It’ll ruin us all.”
Address: While Marston awaits acceptance into Graven Dust Coven, he lives in his family’s estate at 148+ Pluvia on the corner of Sesepha Street, in Mystic City, Severance, Hoopenfangia.
Date & Place of Birth: Marston 4/20/1998. He is 12 years old in Book One, Curse of the McRavens.
Height/Weight/Physical Description: Marston is a little short and skinny for his age. He has short curly hair, a protruding Adam’s apple, and a ruddy, sourpuss face. Sometimes clumsy in his movements and brisk in his walk, he is germaphobic and a compulsive organizer.
Marston Quote: “What physical attribute would I change? I’m quite a specimen of manliness, but I’d get bigger. It’ll happen.”
Citizenship/Ethnic Origin: Hoopenfangia / Caucasian / Sanguinati / French ancestry.
Parents' Names & Occupations:Father: Sessions Diamone. He oversees the Ritual Implements Inventory Department for the theurgy.
Mother: Hilda Diamone. She (along with her husband) oversees the Ritual Implements Inventory Department for the theurgy.
“My parents should be Vespercestors if you ask me. They have faithfully served the Sanguinati for years. I am their prized child, really.”
“My parents taught me the value of honoring heritage over outsiders, and to be the best I can be and that everyone else has their place and should be content with it."
Other Family Members:
Sister: Twila Diamone.
Sister: Contessa Diamone.
Grandfather: Periander Diamone. (1889 - 1976)

Great-grandfather: Cleobulus Diamone. (Died 1910)
Great-grandmother: Alky Soyala Diamone.

Friends' Names & Occupations: Hanzabuh Cuddy. Excluding Marston’s family, he has a few friends, mostly in Graven Dust and other Sanguinati covens.
Marston Quote: “I trust people by my first impressions. Some don’t deserve my attention. I rarely apologize — not good at keeping secrets, but I’d drop everything and help a VIP friend in need.”
Social Class: The Diamones are struggling to maintain an upper-class presence among the Sanguinati.
Magic Specialties: General wand assaults.
Marston Quote: “I’m capable of getting anything if I really want it. As far as shapeshifting goes, I’m against it — not because it’s wicked Nockie magic, but I’d never resort to becoming a common, lowly animal.”
Magic Wand: Creighton Crowley recently saw Marston at Swartrutters purchasing a 14-inch wand in preparation to start his apprenticeship. Swartrutters is a magic supplies store known to sell illicit wands under the counter. A red-oak wand with a turquoise stone handle isn’t necessarily illegal, but the odds of it being all that it seems are slim.
Community Status: Some of the Sanguinati elite like Marston, but he often damages his endeavors as a result of his nasty outbursts.
Marston Quote:“It touches my soul when others finally recognize my genius.”
Political Beliefs/Affiliations: Traditional Sanguinati.
Marston Quote:“If I were in charge, I’d put an enchantment all across the land of Severance to keep out the Noctivatians, Nizzertits, and the Sorcerers.”
Sense of Humor: Marston enjoys seeing others humiliated and punished.
Hobbies/Recreations: Marston enjoys gossip and strives to impress everyone. He isn’t nearly as competitive as Twila, only because he’s not as talented or athletically inclined to win.
Marston Quote: “And just for the record, if I participated in Spurgmulin or other enchanted sports I would win, it’s just that I have better things to do with my time. If I were to list all my strengths, it would take far too long. I’d get bored.”
Tastes in Clothing: White shirts, brown and black suits and robes. Marston goes berserk if he gets one wrinkle in his clothing. He insists on a perfect alignment of his shirt buttons with his belt buckle and trouser fly.
Voice: Snide, arrogant tone with a hint of uncertainty in himself. Sometimes Marston is long-winded, and he interrupts others.
“Take note, stars that govern: I’m doing a good deed here by not punishing all who threaten to taint our Sanguinati Destiny, Heredity, and Ministry.”
“I have to hold back so much of my capabilities; that is my only
disappointment. That I obey my Sanguinati superiors when I could do things that would single out the cancer in our assembly.”
