Diamond Dick. Diamond Dick’s real name is Richard Wade, and at some point in his past, for reasons which were never revealed, he was hanged and left for dead, which left his face a ghastly white. Wade inherits a silver mine and moves to the Western frontier, where events lead him to become a lawman. He is called “Diamond Dick” because of his clothing, which is Spanish-influenced and embellished with diamonds. His revolvers are also encrusted with diamonds. In his lone appearance he helps General Custer against attacking Indians.
