Character Bio

Diego ~ "You wanna know the problem with having two werewolf hostages? You really only need one”.

According to Diego, he and his family were attacked by werewolves, and he watched his sister die in front of him from the wounds she sustained in the attack. Diego only survived because Marcel found him and turned him into a vampire before he could die naturally. From then on, Diego felt an intense hatred toward werewolves.

Diego seemed to be one of Marcel's closest associates, as Marcel came to his rescue when Klaus had lashed out at him. He stated that he only answered to Marcel, and his loyalty to Marcel was so strong that he dared to talk back to Klaus of all people, after Klaus approached him and demanded Marcel's whereabouts. Klaus was so angered by Diego's disrespectful behavior that he grabbed him in a choke-hold until Marcel finally arrived and stepped in to break up their confrontation, insisting to Klaus that Diego was just looking out for him.

Little was known about Diego's personality, but from what has been seen, he was incredibly loyal to Marcel. He also seemed to be very close friends with Thierry Vanchure, as he was indignant towards Marcel on Thierry's behalf when Marcel sent him to the Garden. He apparently had an intense hatred for werewolves, as his entire human family faced tragedy at their hands before he was turned into a vampire by Marcel. His transition into being a vampire seemed to only exaggerate this hatred, as vampires and werewolves have been natural enemies for over a millenia.

Based on Diego's anger at Thierry's sentence and the anger he expressed towards Marcel, it can be presumed that the two of them were close. He was also extremely saddened when he was killed, drinking for him at his impromptu funeral.

Diego did not seem to harbor any true ill will against the Mikaelson Family (though he, like many vampires in the Quarter, seemed to distrust them and often acted arrogantly around them). However, he rarely showed them any outward support unless it was to help solidify his own role as a leader of the vampires. Though he later became compliant to Klaus and Elijah's rule, he expressed a desire to see them leave New Orleans on several occasions.
