History

Benjamin is the oldest son and first born child of Clyde Wilhelm Montclaire, the founder of Montclaire Land Holdings (MLH) 65 years ago. Over the past six decades, MLH has grown into the largest and most successful real estate and land holdings company in all of Dusk. As part of their second venture, the Monclaire Building Company (MBC), Benjamin and his father have designed many of the buildings in Dusk. They are also responsible for quite a few redesigns of buildings that needed to be updated and remodeled. Together, they are the most prominent architects in Dusk history.

Benjamin was married to Augustine Adelaide Sherman-Montclaire for 13 years before her mysterious death occurred 14 years ago. Together, they had three children: their son Tate, 18, and twin daughters Diana and Serenity, 14.

Benjamin became involved in city politics almost a decade ago, after his peers suggested he should hold office in the city he helped build. He has held a position on the city council for several years now. He is known to be a prolific decision maker and excellent leader. Sometimes, he can be too aggressive and bold, which tends to irritate some of the other council members and politicians.
