J. William Collins
born 1617 Andover, Mass
“died” 1657 in an illuminati ritual of ascension. Sired by a Grande Mother (A Collins family woman) of the Illuminati.
The Collins family is an old New England family. Early members of it were Francis, Edward and John. Part of the Satanic branch may live in England too. Like most top Illuminati families, the Collins have spread all over – so that even the West Coast has some members of this satanic bloodline. Part of the family is both related to aristocracy and to witchcraft.
In 1640 in Aquiday, Mass. a Collins was accused of witchcraft. In 1653, Jane Collins was accused of witchcraft in Lynn, Mass, but no accusations ever led to conviction or execution, due to those making the accusations changing their stories after scrutiny was applied.
William grew up in Andover and learned the carpentry trade of his father, and was slowly introduced to the order of the freemasons by him as a teen. As William learned the various degrees of the order of the Freemasons, his apptitude and desire led him to develop a hunger for power of a different sort – the occult. He trained and studied the occult and followed the teachings of witchcraft for many years. In 1642, William married Sarah Ann James, who was the daughter of another, albeit less powerful, familty with ties to the Illuminati. In 1647, William and Sarah Ann quietly gave birth to a son, William Jefferson, who was immediately adopted out to another family to hide the geneology of their son, which was a common practice among the most powerful families. William and Sarah had no further children.
William was sired in the Illuminati ritual of ascension by an ancestor of his, who sat upon an Illuminati throne as a Grande Mother. Sarah Ann stood by and watched as her husband ascended, while she remained mortal; She was not deemed worthy of the gift of immortality in such a fashion. Less than a year later, Sarah Ann lay dying of disease. William called upon the order to save her life by performing the ritual of ascension on her, but the order again deemed her unworthy. William hid his rage behind a mask of indifference, and a month later returned to the order to report of her passing. What he did not disclose was that he had attempted to sire Sarah Ann himself, in defiance of the order, and it had gone wrong, with her dying in his arms.
Pained by the knowledge he had killed Sarah Ann, he spiraled downward towards the lowest depths of despair, and covered it up with a life a debauchery, perversion, sadism, and a quest for power and wealth. Ironically, all of those traits only served to further his image in the eyes of those around him. His power in the occult rose during this time, as did his thirst for all the vices of un-life. During this period, William spent many nights and eventually formed a bond with a vampire from another powerful family named Victoria Astor. Theirs was not initially a bond formed out of love, but out of a shared lust for all of the perversions of life and death.
During the Salem witch trials in 1692, Andover resident Joseph Ballard asked for help for his wife from several girls in the neighboring Salem Village who were already identifying witches there. After visiting Elizabeth Ballard, the girls claimed that several people in Andover had bewitched her: Ann Foster, her daughter Mary Lacey Sr. and her granddaughter Mary Lacey Jr. During the course of the legal proceedings, more than 40 Andover citizens, mostly women and their children, were formally accused of having made a covenant with the Devil. Three Andover residents, Martha Carrier, Mary Parker, and Samuel Wardwell, were convicted and executed. Five others either pled guilty at arraignment or were convicted at trial: Ann Foster, Mary Lacey Sr., and Abigail Faulkner Sr. (daughter of Andover’s minister, Francis Dane) in 1692 and Wardwell’s wife Sarah and Rev. Dane’s granddaughter, Elizabeth Johnson Jr. in 1693. The Collins family, having dealt with accusations of witchcraft forty years previous, escaped scrutiny during this time as the power they wielded was greater than that of the other families who were convicted and executed. Many of the descendants of the Foster, Carrier and Faulkner families hold the Collins family responsible for the deaths of their daughters, feeling the witch trials were instigated by the Collins family to destroy Christians.
With the influence of the families and his unnatural skills, William got involved in politics in the late 18th century as revolution was the order of the day, and there was certainly power and wealth to be had for a man of his education and intellect. William took the alias of John Collins during this period and relocated to Rhode Island with Victoria, and with his influence, advocated the issuance of paper currency and a strong central government, which made him unpopular in the rural areas of Rhode Island. During this time, William and Victoria amassed a large fortune and were able to acquire the rare and valuable goods of those who, under their influence, believed in the idea to convert to a paper currency. William served as a member of the second continental congress until 1781, and eventually became the third governer of Rhode Island from 1786-1790.
In the winter of 1821, William returned to Massachussetts with Victoria and posed as his own descendant. In the Spring of 1822, William realized his true love for Victoria and asked her to be his second wife, and had crafted for her an intricate ring of gold, rubies and diamonds, which she accepted and the two were wed in a very private and carnivorous ceremony. William reacquainted himself with the local Freemasons’ lodge where his “legacy” was discovered to be a lie. Younger, un-initiated members of the lodge, frightened of what they did not understand overwhelmed William one night and managed to drive a wooden stake through his heart, then fled the area with his body. Victoria, through their bond sensed this, and hunted down William’s killers; torturing each of them before finally killing them – though none would reveal what was done with William’s body.
In The Farmers Almanac for 1823 published at Andover, Massachussetts, the following was printed under the heading, “Character of a Freemason”:
The real Freemason is distinguished from the rest of Mankind by the uniform unrestrained rectitude of his conduct.
Other men are honest in fear of punishment which the law might inflect; they are religious in expectation of being rewarded, or in dread of the devil, in the next world.
A Freemason would be just if there were no laws, human or divine except those written in his heart by the finger of his Creator.
In every climate, under every system of religion, he is the same.
He kneels before the Universal Throne of God in gratitude for the blessings he has received and humble solicitation for his future protection.
He venerates the good men of all religions.
He disturbs not the religion of others.
He restrains his passions, because they cannot be indulged without injuring his neighbor or himself.
He gives no offense, because he does not choose to be offended.
He contracts no debts which he is certain he cannot discharge, because he is honest upon principal.
- J. William Collins
William lay in torpor for years – his dreams were particulary terrifying, dreaming over and over about murdering the love of his life – sometimes he would see the face of Sarah Ann, sometimes he would see the face of Victoria. Every deviant act he ever performed played out ad infinutum while he slept – and his mind cracked and shattered over and over. Some time during this sleep, the dreams of Sarah Ann and Victoria changed and became very clear. The face clarified and was definately Victoria now, and the scene changed – William was not present and she was surrounded by five figures, who eventually subdue her and kill her and he can sense it is her Final Death. His mind screams and his eyes open to return him to the darkness of the real world – his slumber seemingly ended by the vision of the Final Death of Victoria.
William struggled to find his bearings and find sustenance, but eventually regains his health and vitae. His first thought is to seek out his family and home, but the world is nothing akin to what he knew of it – William has slumbered in torpor for 179 years, waking in the winter of 2001. He is eventually found by descendant of his extended family, who seemed to sense his awakening. Returned to the order after nearly 200 years, he finds little within has changed. He also finds that his bloodline has been carried throughout the centuries and that ahis fortune and his properties flourished and grew with Victoria at the reigns. He spent months learning the extents of her holdings, and having Victoria’s final death “investigated”. The trail had gone cold as William learned about the ways of the new world, but William did not forget. Gradually, William began to assert himself within the family businesses, his intelligence and political and business knowledge and experience enhanced by his unnatural skills pushed him to the top of the Collins Insurance agency in Massachussets.
In August of 2005, in the wake of hurricaine Katrina, William travelled to New Orleans to personally oversee much of the work for victims of the disaster. It was there, in February of 2006 that the trail of the killers he sought lit ablaze as he oversaw the case of Robert Foster. Robert was a low level vampire, and a descendant of a survivor of the salem witch trials of 1692 – their family still blamed the Collins family for the shortcomings in their lives and felt manipulated by them. While surveying the damage, he happened upon a vary familiar object – a ring of gold, that was centuries old. This ring was missing all of the valuable stones, but it was unmistakably the wedding ring he had crafted for Victoria – her scent was still strong upon it and it stirred the blood within him to a boiling frenzy. Robert’s property insurance claim never paid out, but his life insurance did, when his mutilated body was “found” deep in the ruins of New Orleans. William had learned exactly what had happened to Victoria and had time on his side to plot and enact his retribution. Collins Insurance opened a new branch office in the heart of New Orleans, and William stayed behind to execute its business.
