  • In the secret service of her Majesty;;; the chronicle of Emma Nicholson

    The following adventures were inspired to me by a 1980's French anime series called "Clementine", the story of a little girls stuck in a wheelchair who lives wild adventures involving fairy tales characters and villains, ultimately vanquinshing and fears and destroying the story's main villain, a demon called Malmoth.

    I hope you like the stories of Emma Nicholson, portrayed by Kirsten Dunst as Claudia in The Interview with a Vampire.

    THE CHRONICLE OF EMMA NICHOLSON

    1458 John Melmoth the Wanderer

    In 1458 Emma Nicholson was attending a friend's wedding in Portmouth when she was pursued by an uninvited guest, Sir John Melmoth, also Immortal who became madly infatuated with the child Immortal. Emma wasn't interested but Melmoth relentlessly pursued her, going so far as threatening the lives of her friends and murdering a mortal boyfriend of hers. Emma, not yet the savy player of the Game she became, used her mind to create a plan that saw Melmoth entombed in a seaside cave near Portmouth where he was locked in for one century. Driven mad, Melmoth swore revenge and that Emma would be his for all eternity. And then, if she truly denied him, he would take her head and Quickening,thus making her truly his.

    In 1558 he escaped entombment and relentlessly pursued Emma who had matured a little thanks to the guidance of her new friends in the British Secret Immortals Services and decided she would force him to take no for an answer. When she faced him, she stood unafraid and using agility as well as martial arts learnt from a Japanese teacher, she stood victorious, Melmoth' Quickenign hers for the taking.

    In 1568 Emma Nicholson was living in Southampton as an agent of the SIS during the Treasure Crisis that saw England seize Spanish gold which originally belonged to Italian bankers, as payment to Spanish soldiers fighting rebels in the Spanish Netherlands.

    This created a furious quarrel between Spain and England which seized each other properties, leading to a four years diplomatic standoff. One of the gold-carrying Spanish ships which found shelter in Southampton was captained by an Immortal dubbed El Cobra because he struck his ennemies like a vicious snake. A player of the Game, he suspected the SIS were spying on his ship and had an encounter with diminutive Emma Nicholson whom he though an easy prey. Emma was like a mongoose, not afraid of the cobra's venom and soon Bernardo de Pereda was no more.

    1872 Hans and Greta Strobe - Germany

    The British Foreign Office had been poorly served by a series of ambassadors to Germany, who provided only superficial reports on the dramatic internal German developments of the 1860s. That changed with the appointment of Odo Russell (1871-1884), who developed a close rapport with Bismarck and provided in depth coverage of German developments. In 1872 Emma was part of a diplomatic mission in Prussia, intending to use her diminutive frame to infiltrate the Prussian court and study the ongoing political climate; nobody would care about the presence of a child after all. She met a a duo of Immortal "children", Hans and Greta Strobe who perfomed political assassinations, passing themselves as innocent children, playing their own little game of murder, in cahoots with the sinister Frau Totenkinder, an Immortal and a witch allied with the sinister Grigori Rasputin.

    The British diplomat was victim of a murder attempt, the blame pinned on a Prussian guard resulting in diplomating relations beign strained. Emma had her orders: sanction anyone trying to fuel a diplomatic war between Great Britain and Prussian mortal or otherwise. The two murderers vanished from Watcher Records and are believed permaently dead.

    1920 Khentimeresh, Great priest of Amon - Egyptian

    In 1906 the Denshawai Incident - a dispute which occurred between British military officers and locals in Denshawai, Egypt - provoked a questioning of British rule in Egypt exploited by the German Empire which began re-organizing, funding, and expanding anti-British revolutionary nationalist movements. In the 1910's, the SIS began infiltrating those anti-British movements with local agents. One of those groups was "The Eagles of Cheops" a local cult founded by those Khentimeresh, once Great Priest of Amon who sought to restore the power of ancient Pharaohs in Egypt and began targeting British military personal end officals all across Egypt, wreaking havoc and killing dozens of civilians. Emma Nicholson found herself caught in a group held hostage by Khentimeresh cult in 1918 and soon found the cult leader was an Immortal, an ancient one who couldn't let go of the past.

    She was greatly helped by a band of street urchins dubbed the Cairo Street Kids on Watchers records, led by two Immortals, Farah Ibn Said, a teenaged girl and Hassan, a child Immortal. Those were ancient ennemies of Khentimeresh. The children helped free the hostages while the adult members of the SIS came gun-toting and dispatched the so-called Eagles while Emma herself had the privilege of sending the zealot Amon follower to whatever pit of hell was awaiting him.

    1944 Petar 'Pan' Krupova, circus director kidnapping children across the world

    Emma Nicholson investigated the Barnum & Bailey Circus activities in the 1950, stories of children vanishing without trace, only to meet Immortal legend Peter Pàn who had a centuries long habit of kidnapping children and keeping them with him, in his own private fantasy world where they wouldn't be allowed to grow up. Peter Pàn was a self-delluded Immortal who thought he was doing some good, coming after children victims of poor treatments from adults but in doign so locking them in neverland, another form of prison. Emma succesfully managed to free his late'st crop of captives but the angry teenaged Immortal forced her into a confrontation from which Emma stood victorious. "Emma Bond, 007" did her job once again. Unfortunately, the ensuing Quickening triggered the infamous Hartford circus fire disaster durign an afternoon performance attended by thousands of civilians. 167 persons were killed.

    1963 Kemp Armitage, Big game hunter - British

    Emma's affair with Jackson Trent in British Kenya ended with Trent not wanting to consort with an woman locked in the body of a "child"; while this would have been acceptable in Victorian Era, in the 1960's this was impossible. However, she had to deal with another kind of predator, British Immortal Kemp Armitage, a big game hunter and ivory trader not above having an affair with a preteen Immortal, but Emma Nicholson believed in mutual consent and she didn't consent in sleeping with disgusting Kemp. When he Immortal murdered several Kenyan natives, this sparked troubles between the black ansd white communities of the Kenyan protectorate and Emma still was an agent of the SIS so she knew where her duty lied. Thanks to her amiable procedure was done for Kenya to claim its freedom from the British Empire. The United Kingdom ceded sovereignty over the Colony of Kenya under an agreement dated 8 October 1963.
