    The Chronicle of Yun-dol Kim

    Known aliases : Hong Gilgong, Kim Dol Sung,
    Jonathan Kim
    Notable characteristics : Ambidextrious
    Weapon : Twin falchions

    Status
    Most recent base of operations : New-York NY
    Occupation : Security guard, Schlumberger
    Prior occupations : Traveller, sailor, mercenary,
    soldier, silk merchant
    Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
    Date : 7 February 1985
    Place : New-York NY
    Victor : The Kurgan
    Watcher : Research, Yung Dol-kim Chronicle

    Background
    Original cultural affiliation : Korean
    Born : 1562; Gyeonggi-do, South Korea
    First death : 1592, During invasion of Korea by
    Japanese army
    First teacher : Matsuhiro Kanagawa
    First recorded sighting : 1595, Okinawa Japan;
    Indentured servant of Matsuhir oKanagawa

    Surrounded from all sides by Oriental countries, Korea was often subjected to invasions like in 1592-98 when Japan attacked Korea with destruction of many buildings and the killing of many Koreans. Among them a pre-immortal merchant named Yung Dol-kim. Kim's body was found by Hattori Hanzo, ancient immortal and forger of swords who taught Kim of the Game and kept him as indentured servant, in exchange for letting him keep his head on his shoulders. Kim's hate for his master grew every passing day, until he managed to flee from him, poisoning him and robbing him of money, but without daring to take his head.
    The Korean society changed as traders and merchants began to trade with Japan and the West, and Kim knew he could never fit in any of those countries anymore. So he left for China and travelled to Outer Mongolia with several headhunters on his trail. He met Zhang-Shi, master of Kung-Fu and May-Ling Shen who both taught him more of the Game and to defend himself from his pursuers. A merchant by trade and heart, Kim evolved into a powerful fighting machine, so deeply involved in the Game that he lost track of the peaceful family man who saw his wife and children slaughtered by the Japanese.
    After witnessing the invasion of Tibet by China, the destruction of Hiroshima and Nagazaki, the Vietnam war, the rape of Nanking and so many other horrors, Kim felt it was time for him to retire after four centuries of fighting.
    The Korean immortal vanished in the middle of the 1960's and didn't re-appear until this year when he fell prey to the furious onslaught of the Kurgan; the Kurgan's Watcher reported that Kim no longer wanted to play the Game and was tired of fighting, wanting only to rest. The Kurgan granted him his wish, contemptuously taking his head and Quickening.

    Update, 03.03.2015

    It seems Sarah Lao’s write-up for the deceased Yung Dol-kim was greatly exaggerated. Yung Dol-kim never was a proficient player of the Game as Sarah seems to believe, unless this was a fantasy from her part.
    Yung Dol-kim’s life with Matsuhiro Kanagawa disgusted him from immortal life and he only sought training with May-Ling Shen and Zhang Shi to find self-defense techniques to ward off potential immortal opponents.
    His fight against Flameshadow was based on a misunderstanding, the Japanese kabuki mistook him for a serial killer of Japanese schoolgirls. And where on earth did Sarah find the idea that such an honorable warrior like Hattori Hanzo could take Kim as slave ? Matsuhiro Kanagawa was Kim’s tormentor, not Hanzo. Kim did keep twin falchions in his place of work, out of common sense, but I don’t think he used them in the past twenty years since he retired from the Game. Yung was a lot of things, but he never became a champion of the Game.
    Or only in the imagination of Sarah Lao.

    Kim won a mighty, powerful Quickening, but this was a hollow victory as he found out from Long’s memories : an ancient Immortal who found two callings in his life, serving his country and playing the Game

    Kitbuga
    Most recent base of operations : Hohhot, Inner
    Mongolia
    Occupation : Warrior
    Prior occupations : Horseman, raider
    Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
    Date : 1626
    Place : Hohhot

    Born : 1102; Liao Dynasty of Mongolia
    First death : 1122; Fighting the Jurchen, ancestors
    of the Manchu
    First teacher : Uv Bukhar

    Kitbuga has been found to be a past disciple of Uv Bukhar, a player of the Game who infected his disciple with his taste for the power of the Quickening. Kitbuga challenged Kim when the Korean was travelling though Inner Mongolia, searching for the legendary May-Ling Shen whom he heard was a firebrand I nthe Game and welcomed disciples from the four corners of the Orient, so long as they came with amiable intentions anda true will to learn. Kim’s will to learn was a burnign in him as his will to survive in the Game and he receved both opportunities in Mongolia when he won his fight against Kitbuga and when he was mentored by May-Ling Shen, who taught him the way of the Chinese sword, the ways of Chinese martial arts and how to please a Chinese woman in bed.

    Halim Saad
    Most recent base of operations : Malacca
    Sultanate of Aceh
    Occupation : Pirate ship captain
    Prior occupations : Freight ship captain
    Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
    Date : 1633 Attacking Dutch East Indies ships
    Place : Malacca
    Victor : Kim Yun-dol, navigator working for
    Chinese envoy to Sultan of Aceh
    Original cultural affiliation : Malaysian
    Born : 1156; Malay Archipelago, Srijivaja Empire
    First death : 1186; Conquest of Malay by Chola Empire
    First teacher : Shiva Gupta

    Halim Saad lived in Malaysia for five hundred years and had been scourging the southeast asian seas as a pirate ship captain, destroying ships, enslaving women, killing children or selling them to slave markets. He also hated foreign Immortals he felt were invading this country and specialized in attacking Dutch merchant ship at the time of the Dutch East Indies era of Malaysia. Kim worked for the Chinese envoy to the Sultan of Aceh and also helped merchant ships through safe waters as a navigator, having coined the term “multi-tasking” centuries before the word was invented. The fight between Kim and Halim took place in a seedy part of Malacca, after Halim sold three unfortunate girls to a local bordello. It is a shame Kim didn’t kill the Malay before the girs were sold in slavery.

    Kutemeikashite
    Most recent base of operations : Iga Province,
    Present Mie Prefecture, Japan
    Occupation : Ninja, specializing in guerilla warfare,
    espionnage and sabotage missions
    Prior occupations : Yamabushi, wxarrior-monk
    Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
    Date : 1651
    Place : Iga Province
    Victor : Kim Yun-dol, at this time guest of the town
    elder, targeted for assasination
    Original cultural affiliation : Japanese
    Born : 1280; Island of Honshu, Japan
    First death : 1324; Yamabushi killed assisting
    Emperor Go-Daigo in his attempt to overthrow
    Kamakura Shogunate
    First teacher : Go Usami, Yamabushi

    In 1651 Kim Yun-dol migrated to Japan as part of a diplomatic mission, a bodyguard with a taste for foreign cultures inherited from May-Ling Shen’s lessions. Durign a stay in a village of the Iqba province where he was a guest of the local village leader he fought an invisible assassin clad in black,carrying an assortiment of weaponry, in other words a Ninja. Kutemeikashite was a legendary killer who had murdered his way across the Empire of Japan for three hundred years and had the reputation of being an unkillable, fearsome opponent. Many Immortals tried to come after him, trying to rid Japan from this nuisanc,e including legedary Hattori Hanzo and fabled Miyamoto Musashi. But it was Kim Yun-dol who got to him, using tracking skills received from Mongol Kitbuga‘s Quickening : Kutemeikashite targeted the village leader and murdered his mortal bodyguards as well as his favorite concubine,spreading terror in the place.

    Anousheh Khayami
    Most recent base of operations : Delhi, India
    Occupation : Soldier, Persian army, occasional
    player of the Game hunting Kitbuga the Mongol
    Prior occupations : Ditto
    Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
    Date : 4 May 1739 Persian sack of Delhi
    Place : Delhi
    Victor : Kim Yun-dol, at this time living as a jewels
    merchant in Delhi
    Original cultural affiliation : Persian
    Born : 1238; Kingdom of Persia
    First death : 1258; Mass extermination of Persians
    by conquering Mongol army, killed by Mongol
    Warrior Kitbuga while defending her family
    First teacher : Lalica

    In 1739, Kim was living as a jewels merchant in Delhi, India, taking a few decades off from the violence of the Game.
    But the Game always catches up to even the more amiable of Immortals and in 1739 the Persians invaded India and sacked Delhi after the Battle of Karmal which marked the victory for Nader Shah of Ira, during his invasion of Mughal dynasty of India. As a captain of Shah's troops was Immortal woman (a woman !) Anousheh Khayami, a female player of the Game with a tragic past linked to a Mongol Immortal she had been hunting for nearly five centuries. Some Immortals really carry long grudges. Then she was challenged by Kim Yun-dol who protected his investments i nDlehi as well as the lives of the mortals he befriended and in spite of all the trainign she received from her teacher in 1258, lost her life agaisnt the Korean, not aware that this was the Immortal who killed her lifelong ennemy for her.

    Valeria Rozhkova
    Most recent base of operations : Khabarovsk,
    Far East District of Russia
    Occupation : Intelligence work, on behalf of
    Andrej Korda
    Prior occupations : Mistress/disciple of Andre
    Korda
    Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
    Date : 13 May 1853
    Place : Khabarovsk
    Victor : Kim Yun-dol
    Born : 1554; Transbaka, Russia
    First death : 1580, Killed by Cossacks during
    conquest of Siberia by Russian Tsardom
    First teacher : Andrej Korda
    Known associates : Andre Korda

    In 1853, Kim Yun-dol was part of the Koreans migration waves of the mid-19th century to Far E ast Russia and Siberia during the decline of the Joseon Dynasty. A lot of Korean peasants felt Siberia would give them a chance to live better lives and so they started migrating en masse, among them a household owner named Kim Yun-dol. Though thinking of retiring from the Game, the Game never forgot Jim in the person of a socialite named Valeria Rhozkova who saw those migratory waves as an opportunity to use Koreans as spies in the Far East, on behalf of her teacher, master manipulator Andre Korda.
    Korda always moved in mysterious ways and he ordered Valeria to r"ecruit Kim once she identifed him an an Immortal. But Kim wasn't a newbie who could be coerced and he saw Korda and Valeria's game as a danger to his community's efforts of integrating Siberian communities. The conflict between the three Immortals boiled to a point when Korda ordered his lover to dispose of the now-considered liability and once again Kim fought for his life. In 1907 it was the end of the Russo-Japan war (Korda's manipulations were somewhere behind), Russia enacted an anti-Korean law at the behest of Japan, under which the land of Korean farmers was confiscated and Korean labourers were laid off. Since then, Kim was long gone but the news did cause him a measure of chagrin.

    From a request by Andrew on the Source thread... Despicable movie but Reggie, Zai Jie and Giovanni had potential as characters.

    Giovanni Battista

    Notable characteristics : Lives on Holy Ground
    Eyes sensitive to sunlight
    Weapon : Crusader sword
    Recorded kils : None, not a player of the Game

    Original cultural affiliation : Italian
    Born : 1327, Sienna Italy
    First death : 1357, Drank poisoned wine
    First teacher : Leofric
    First recorded sighting : 1655 Paris; encounter with
    Darius

    With use of political stratagems, coercion and various degrees of blackmail, Cardinal Giovanni successfully had Joseph Ratzinger elected as Pope in 2005 after doing all he could to keep his previous tool living as long as possible. Giovanni loves the manipulation of Christian masses he can make by being the counsellor of the Pope in power. He has been doing this for the past seven hundred years. His great secret Game. The other Game, the one practiced by the Immortals isn't thrilling to him anymore, he prefers to dabble in politics.
    As far as immortality is concerned, there is only one question to which he wants an answer : where do the Immortals come from ? How many of them are there on Earth precisely ? Why did Immortals keep fighting and what is the source of their power ? Those questions obsess Giovannand he will use every mean necessary to obtain answers, even if it means sacrificing the lives of mortals or immortals.

    Zai Jie

    Notable characteristics : Curious aboput
    everything, unquenchable thirst for knowledfge
    and discovering foreign cultures
    Weapon : Song Dynasty zhanmadao sword

    Status
    Most recent base of operations : Chang'an

    Occupation : Archaeologist, medical doctor
    Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
    Date : 14 December 1986
    Place : Chang'an
    Victor : Undetermined, possibly Kyala
    Watcher : Yang Jianli

    Background
    Original cultural affiliation : Chinese-Malaysian
    Born : 15th cnetury, Malaccan Empire, Malaysia
    First death : Cave-in exploring ruins of ancient
    village near Chang'an
    First teacher : Yau Chouan Chou
    First teacher : Yau Chouan Chou
    First recorded sighting : 1279 Repelling Mongol
    forces with May-Ling Shen

    Zai's quest for the origins of immortality began one thousand years ago in a remote valley near Beijing, looking for the location of ruins indicating the origins of the source of immortality : the answers to why do the immortals exist, why do they keep on living when empires and civilisations crumble around them, why do they keep fighting each others to death. Zai has heard of ancient scroll, mythical texts telling of the origins of the Game and the story of the first immortals who searched for answers. Zia has been combing the four corners of the world, present on every digging sites possble, in the hope of making his dream come true : to find the origins of immortals. A foolish quest, but we wish him well and wait for him to find out. We are as impatient as he is.

    Yang Jianli, 1986

    Author notes : Srephen Rhaman Hughes, the actor playing Zai, is of Malaysian ancestry and Malaysia was colonized by Chinese in the 15th Century.

    Watcher : Sandra Faber

    Background
    Original cultural affiliation : Norwegian
    Born : 1695, Oslow, Norway
    First death : 1720, Hung as witch for his theories
    on the movement of stars
    First teacher : Tycho Brahe
    Known past associates : Tycho Brahe
    First recorded sighting : 1720 Constantinople,
    Byzantine Empire. Witnessed his teacher’s death
    by the blade of Ya Nefer Ma’at of Egypt

    A vodka-guzzling astronomer, yet also a scientific genius that looks to the stars for an answer to why he was spared death and pain like those around him. Small in stature, he uses humor and bluster as survival skills. People saw the young man in the high-top sneakers and the ripped jeans and they underestimated him for centuries, yet he thrived on challenges in the Game, in the bed and among the stars.
    Long may he live !

      If I remember correctly, Reggie mentioned being in battle during either world war one or world war two in the film.

      I would also change his height in your chronicle from 3'2" to 5'2". He was not shown on-screen as a dwarf just as a short man.

      Nice background, how about a chronicle write-up ? Yes, Slocum would sleep with a prostitute and that would be a blatant case of watcher interfering with his Immortal.



      Isabel Regalo
      Original cultural affilation : Brazilian
      Born : 1811; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
      First death : 1830, Died from malaria
      First teacher : Theresa Malloy

      Guenau Bolano
      Original cultural affiliation : Spanish
      Born : 1963; Cordoba, Spain
      First death : 1989; Suicide
      First teacher : Isabel Regalo

      Guenau Bolano and Isabel Regalo have a unique slant on playign the Game : Guenau plays the lonely young Immortal who is prisonner of an abusive relationship, whose girlsfriend is following him like his own sahdow. When he finds a symapthetic ear amogn hte Immortals, he waits that the relationship is comfy enough so he can lure the Immortal (preferably a woman) in his home where Isabel is waiting. She plays the jealous fury and jumps on the hapless Immortal who has been weakened by a drugged glass of wine from Guenau, and then the two lovers share hte Quickening. They share everything since Bolano's suicide in 1989 over a broken heart.But was Bolano doesn't know is that Isabel has had many Immortal "partners" of both sexes in 187 years of existence, all agreeing to play her game and beign disposed of Immortal-style when Isabel tired of them. The maipulative vixen and the foolish fox truly make a deadly team, but for how long ?

        Very nice of you. All Immortals featured on that list are covered in my chronicles.

      I opened it up in a text document and combed through it hahaha. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the actual chronicles for the entries, just the basic info.

        Here is the chronicle of Francois Marchette, the Cynophobic swordsman

        NAME: Francois Marchette
        KNOWN ALIASES: Maurice Fontenot

        STATUS
        UNIQUE CHARACTERISTICS: Cynophobic (Fear of dogs)
        MOST RECENT BASE OF OPERATIONS: Paris, France
        OCCUPATION: Independent means
        ROSTER OF IMMORTAL'S STATUS: DECEASED
        DATE: 1982
        PLACE: Paris, France
        VICTOR: Peter Kanis
        WATCHER: Claude Massanet

        BACKGROUND
        BORN: 1729; Gévaudan, France
        ORIGINAL CULTURAL AFFILIATION: French
        FIRST DEATH: 1764
        CIRCUMSTANCE: Killed by the Beast of Gévaudan
        FIRST TEACHER: Brannix of Gaul

        Francois could have taken out Kanis. He had the skills, the drive to win the Game, the experiance.
        What did couldn't prepare for, was the dogs. Most likely stemming from his first death, the sight of a dog
        terrified him. So when he had literally run through a Parisian park, being chased by Kanis's Rotweilers, he was in
        no state to fight and take that thief Kanis's head.


        And a personal update to Xaiver St.Cloud

        NAME: Khaled el Zitouna
        KNOWN ALIASES: Xaiver St. Cloud, Gerard Fleurie, Nelson Mfume

        STATUS
        UNIQUE CHARACTERISTICS: Lost left hand in battle, Paris 1992
        MOST RECENT BASE OF OPERATIONS: Paris, France
        OCCUPATION: Jewel Thief
        ROSTER OF IMMORTAL'S STATUS: DECEASED
        DATE: 1982
        PLACE: Paris, France
        VICTOR: Duncan MacLeod
        WATCHER: Stanley Barton

        BACKGROUND
        BORN: ca. 1160; Morocco
        ORIGINAL CULTURAL AFFILIATION: Moor
        FIRST DEATH: 1192
        CIRCUMSTANCE: Fighting in the armies of Saladin, 3rd Crusade
        FIRST TEACHER: Henri St. Cloud of France

        Early in his Immortal life, probably around the same time he whacked his first teacher and took both
        the man's head and his name, Khaled el Zitouna realized that the road to success was paved with dirty tricks.
        In his early days, Khaled would choose his victims with care, studying them, never challenging one who might
        be better than he. MacLeod lost a good friend and teacher, Hamza el Kahir, to Khaled that way. Later Khaled
        experimented with poison gas and other dishonorable methods to incapacitate his victims before taking their heads.
        After Macleod took his hand in 1992, Khaled even resorted to mercenaries with Uzis, no class. Khaled may have a
        polished demeanor - well dressed, well-read, well-spoken, as well as a weakness for expensive caviar and rare art -
        but inside beat the heart of a coward. MacLeod did the world a huge favor when he took out this one.

          Good job on François Marchette, a cynophobic with links to a tragic story from France's past, killed by that nutjob Kanis! I like the name you give to Xavier too. Well done.

          That still doesn't seem good enough to me, though. Xavier runs around back then saying things about not killing children or sleeping with virgins. Centuries in the future he also almost gives a "real" answer to why he kills mortals, and it seemed to be there must be some interesting backstory there. Something a lot better than "He's just a total scumbag."

        Xavier's chronicle write-up is from the Watcher CD ROM. Only the name has been modified. Von Mollet, maybe you could write a short text explaining how Xavier went from being a player of the Game who doesn't kill children - and he was certainly taunting Duncan MacLeod when he said this - to a heartless killer who takes pleasure in killing.

          And now, Von Mollet, a surprise for you : here are some of the characters you created on the previous HLBB, only with minor modifications. I safeguarded them on my databases, crediting you as their author.

          Kenshiro Tatsuya

          Known aliases : "Bug" Tatsuya, Tetsuo Shima
          Notable characteristics : None
          Weapon : Japanese military saber
          Recorded kills : Sadato Tani, Kenishi Tuyama,
          Genjo Ito

          Status
          Most recent base of operations : Tokyo, Japan
          Occupation : Motorcyclist, bosozoku gang leader
          Prior occupations : Motorcyclist
          Roster of Immortals Status : Active
          Date :
          Place :
          Victor :
          Watcher : Shingo Misawa

          Background
          Original cultural affiliation : Japanese
          Born : 1932, Kyoto Japan
          First death : 1952, Motorcycle accident
          First teacher : Keiko Watanabe
          Known associates : None
          Known past associates : Keiko Watanabe
          First recorded sighting : 1952, Kyoto. Student of Watanabe

          Bug Tatsuya embodies the spirit of bosozoku. The hair, the attitude, the motorcycle. A rebel at heart, he never should fit in. He even uses a military sabre of his homeland instead of the Japanese katana that the majority of Immortal countrymen and women use. He travels around Japan, causing trouble wherever he goes. Speeding through traffic, setting fires and getting in fights. He better watch out though. Word is yakuza boss, Matsuhiro Kanagawa, is out for his head after Bug torched a restaurant that was a front for a betting parlor he owned. Bug better watch out, or sharpen his sword skills. I'd put my bets on the former samurai anyday.

          Shingo Misawa. 2009

          I am afraid to report that we lost another dedicated Watcher, Private Mike Sanders, in Irak. His platoon was ambushed by a Taliban cell while doing a patrol. After a firefight, only him and his assignment, John Ray Feilding remained and were taken by Taliban forces to a undisclosed location. When asked who was higher in rank, Feilding said Sanders was, knowing that the terrorists would want a higher rank to hold for ransom. They beheaded Feilding, taping it, and sent a message to US Forces. By the time the US responded, the area was deserted and Sanders was found shot in the head excution style.

          When John Ray Fielding first met Amanda in 1917, he was a corporal of the British army, stationed in France on the battlefield of WWI with orders for his untit to ceasefire for the day so as to avoid a situation with the Germans were they would all have been needlessly killed. Ray was carrying his order in a wallet with money in it, which Amanda coveted.
          Ray was ambushed and tried to explain to the thief that his orders were important, he couldn't give her his wallet. But she didn't listen, knocked him out and stole both letter and money. When Ray woke up, it was too late : his unit made of 120 men had been slaughtered in battle and himself met his First Death later in the trenches.
          His teacher, Everett Bellian taught him about immortality and disclosed to him the identity of the woman he met. Ray swore to find the thief who had caused the death of his comrades-in-arms.
          It was not only the death of his friends that broke his heart, but also seeing from afar his wife marrying another man and their adopted children growing up without him. Not knowing anything alse, Ray stayed a soldier, fighting in Spain, Korea and Vietnam under different identities, living by the sword and by the gun.
          In 1998, Ray found the woman who destroyed his life in Toronto, confronted her and challenged her to a fight; Amanda, a thief with a conscience, felt guilty and accepted the challenge.
          Who knows what would have happened if her pre-immortal friend Nick Wolfe hadn't interfered, making Fielding realise that Amanda's death wouldn't bring his friends back from the grave, and that revenge was a two-edged sword : it kills its carrier as well as its target.
          Fielding reluctantly agreed to let bygones be bygones, and left Amanda to her bad conscience, ready to start a new life fresh without revenge in his heart.

            Lassiter better watch out. Most Immortals would want to keep a low profile, but apparently Howard didn't get the memo. Everytime he goes out, he draws attention to himself, and not the good type. Accusations of drug use, alcohol abuse, and beating his girlfriend, his face is often plastered over tabloid newspapers. We've taken steps to make sure that when he loses his head it won't be discovered he's a 180 year old immortal who carries a sword for protection. When a small town nobody goes missing, nobody bats an eyelash. When a football star who is constantly in the spotlight goes missing, people ask questions.

            Challenged and beheaded by Suetonus

            Gaius Suetonius Paulinus ordered the Roman army to destroy the Celtic Druid stronghold on Anglesey in Britain, sacking Druidic colleges and sacred groves. The massacre helped impose Roman religion on the world and sent Druidism into a decline from which it never recovered; Amergan was high priest of the Anglesey stronghold and survived only to bury his brethen and to see the Druid cult vasnih into obscurity until his death three hundred years later by the blade of Blasius Suetonus, marking his first and only recorded appearance.
            Later research allowed him to identify him as a past student of Druidess Asteria of Gaul at a time when she lived as a Druidess in Celtic Britain during the times of Britannia's invasion by the Romans.

            I had the feeling that women would be the end of Niccoli. He had snuck out tonight to meet two women that had come to the monastary earlier in the day. They had asked him to meet them that night to speak to him about something dire. He obliged them meeting them away from the monastary. But waiting for him instead, was The Kurgan. The Kurgan had known of Francesco's weakness for women, after nearly taking his head at a harem two years ago, and had bribed two women to lure him out. After he took Francesco's head he bedded and murdered the two women. I guess they a fullfiled their purpose.

              Taken in and taught of Immortality by Kage

              As the first Immortal Kage encountered after what he had seen back in '75, Andrew Breeland is a good representation of his new outlook on life. Breeland, a former junkie and small time hood, has been given a new lease on life. If Cambodia never happened, I'm sure Kage would have taught him how to make an easy buck and take heads or worse, take his head outright. But instead Kage is teaching him peace and love, something I figure Breeland has never lived with. While Kage is still teaching him how to use a sword, I figure this is just a protective measure for when Breeland eventually leaves his teacher.

              Mike Dunham, 1986

              Breeland found Ohane Munroe among the debris of a house on the suburbs of New Orleans, he tried to reach out to her but this is an untrusting immortal hiding in the frame of the teenaged Ohane and though Andrew Breeland isn’t a pedophile, she recoiled from him. As the remains of the house was taken away by the flood, so was Breeland on his boat. I nearly drowned too, watching them from afar. I hope this isn’t the last we see of Breeland and of that unfortunate girl.

              In 1944, Sergeant James Guidry died in a skrimish with Nazi troops in France. After awaking an Immortal, he was found by a former soldier, Antoine Legris, who taught him the ways of Immortality. Coming back to the States in 1972, finding the US he left had changed immensely. Finding work as a dishwasher in Shreveport at Easy Eddie's Grill a barely one star grill. Over time he rose from dishwasher to chef and from chef to maître d'hotel. When he eventually bought the place, he overhauled the restraraunt, making it a four star restraraunt when he was finished. Life was good, until that little punk Kant, took his head. The Grill has since closed, as if it died with him.

              Hyde the Hunter chased madame Moselle to the ouskirts of Paris. She tried to warn her mentor, Pierre Segur, of Hyde's plan. But was too late. She encountered the Scotsman Duncan MacLeod, who informed her that Hyde had found her teacher. She rushed to where MacLeod said the two had gone, ignoring him reminding her the rules of the Game. When she arrived, it was too late. Hyde had taken away the only thing she had to a father, and instead of protecting him, she had lead Hyde right to him.

With her amazonian build, close-cropped hair and wielding a two handed zweihander, she is a headhunter with a chip the size of a small country on her shoulder. I feel bad for any man that gets on her bad side.

                Terrence O'Connor was sometimes mistaken as Terrence of Coventry because of their similar names, but an adventurous aristocrat he wasn't : more an opportunist and rogue ready for anything if he could turn a profit. I am sure he would have done a lucrative business as a gangster in the years following the Prohibition, with the rise of the Italian-American maffia, but he ran into an elderly immortal who ran a distillery operation behind the cover of silvermithing and Terrence felt he could associate himslef with someoneof his kind, for once. Unfortunately, Kincaid didn't see it that way and whipped his sword when the Aussie asked for a bigger part of the action.

                All Julie wanted was to be a mother. After many attempts to become preganant in her pre-immortal life failed, she resorted to theft. She stole an infant from a house one night only to be caught and killed the following morning. When Garibaldi found her and told her she could never have children, her world fell apart. So when a young Immortal boy came to her looking for a safe place to hide 192 years later, she welcomed him with open arms. Shame she was the one who needed protection.

                George always had a soft spot for charity cases. Even before he died his first death, he was always taking in the poor, giving them hot meals and shelter for the night. When a crazed beggar stabbed him in a back alley that night in 1780, he found that he couldn't die, nor could he stop helping the disprivledged. On his way out West, he found Micheal Moore, a newly born Immortal with a truckload of emotional trauma. He taught him the ways of the Game and sent him on his way, not knowing the evil Michael had in him. He relocated in Washington, opening a shelter, much as he had before. It wasn't long until he ran into a Immortal child named Kenny. He took him in, raising him as his own. Until one night Kenny took his head, taking a life of a man who had done nothing but help others.

                Finally I don't have to watch that spoiled brat anymore. Annika finally thought she would have revenge on Amanda for when Amanda stole her favorite necklace in 1923, but Amanda made sure to end her before she had a tantrum. Again. Actually can't remember a day without one. Heck, Kenneth acts like more of an adult than her. It's about time someone put her in her place.

                Some Immortals have a bad reaction to the presence of Immortal and this weakness can prove fatal : they get epilepsy and find themselves as defenceless as infants. The cause of most cases of epilepsy is unknown. Some cases occur as the result of brain injury, stroke, brain tumors, infections of the brain, and birth defects, in the cause of Immortals it is the power of the Quickening laying in their brains and spinal cord that can cause those reactions.

                Some reactions are benign, Kit O'Brady is famous for brutally sneezing in the presence of other Immortals, but in the case of Paul Furio (Immortality's own James Bond) and Malek Ben Mansour from Morocco, epilepsy has caused them more troubles than they care to count, and in the case of Furio it proved fatal : during his investigation of the Red Brigades in 1973 it provoked such a seizuere in him that the Brigages leader - Marcantonio Fitipaldi - easily took hold of him and killed him. Jamal Al Din of Syria was prime warrior material, a young Immortal from Damascus who found epilepsy prevented him from playing the Game and turned from warlike activities to more scholarly careers. Simon Vasilyev was one of the best blades from Russia, after Victor Markov, but a bad Quickening left this after-effect in him and he retired from a promising career among the Immortals of Mother Russia to concentrate on his other talent : singing among the Red Army Choir with the Alexandrov Ensemble.

                Those Immortal have tried to find medications with brain surgeon Peter Gaicus and herbalist Grace Chandel, unfortunately it is incurable for an Immortal : it is the Immortal range which is at fault and there is no true control over the Immortal range, lest you be an ancient and powerful Immortal able to cloack yourself from other Immortals.

                    Thak you for your interest, Bystander. Here is the Immortal War. Largely edited to make it less confusing, with less deaths stories and more positive endings for some characters. I hoe you enjoy it.


                    PROLOGUE

                    The Chronicle of Menmet-Ra is an enigma, sometimes its difficult to disentangle myth from reality. Now known to us as the mysterious leader of the Zodiac Brotherhood, a group of twelve Immortals, all students of Menmet-Ra.

                    He has been identified as another student of the oldest Egyptian Immortal Inyotef, pre-dating Raan by several centuries. According to research, in pre-immortality he was a humble farmer, but how he died his First Death is unknown. He shows up later in the records as an officer in the Egyptian army under the Pharoah Tuthmosis I during his campaigns in Syria and Palestine between 1507 BC and 1494 BC. Before that, one earlier account places him at the court of Amenemhet I in 2000 BC as a bodyguard or captain of the place guard.

                    His place as founder and leader of the Zodiac Brotherhood is said to have originated from his belief that Immortals are born superior to mortals and should not have to hide among them and fight each other to extinction. He came to embrace the idea that Immortals should be ruling their inferior cousins. It is these beliefs that are said to have led to his conflict with his teacher Inyotef. A conflict that culminated in a confrontation in 1420 BC in Abydos in Lower Egypt. According to legend, they fought from sundown to sunrise, but eventually Inyotef triumphed. He spared his student's life at the point of his sword, unable to kill his former friend, but this defeat did not extinguish Menmet-Ra's beliefs.

                    Inyotef must have known his student would one day have to be stopped and it is believed he passed this warning on to the legendary Magos of Ur, who in turn passed on the knowledge to his student Aganesthes of Tyrins.

                    According to legend, Memnet-Ra walked the known world, searching for others of his kind, gathering to his side twelve disciples fiercely loyal to him. It is written that Memnet-Ra came to believe that because Immortals were so few in number compared to mortals, they would have to rule from the shadows. He set up a base at Knossos on the island of Crete in 205 BC and his Zodiac Brotherhood hired mercenaries as a garrison to defend the fortress they built.

                    Why Memnet-Ra adopted the Zodiac as a symbol of his cult is shrouded in mystery, as are the Immortals who became his acolytes, since Memnet-Ra was elusive and difficult to keep track of, especially with the limited resources of those days. Almost nothing is known about his Brotherhood other than they were Immortals found by Memnet-Ra and indoctrinated into his beliefs. Memnet-Ra and the Zodiac Brotherhood were a secret society that prided itself on its anonymity, and legend has it that their plan was to infiltrate the mighty empires of the ancient world and rise to power from the shadows with Memnet-Ra as supreme ruler.
                    Records show that Achilles of Troy, legendary student of Aganesthes of Tyrins, discovered the plot by the Zodiac. He recruited to his side students, friends and trusted allies to stop Memnet-Ra: Xanthia of Melitus, Cleophon of Athens, Epistor of Macedon, Medios of Thebes, Deoneces and Kyra of Sparta, Marcus Constantine, Take Ne of Egypt, and Katherine of Samothrace. The Immortals planned to storm the Zodiac's fortress on Crete, but were heavily outnumbered by the cult's 2000 mercenaries. According to records, Marcus Constantine used his influence in the Roman Senate to convince the Republic that the army on Crete posed a threat to Rome's Mediterranean trade routes and he was given command of a legion.
                    With this force, the Immortals landed on Crete and laid siege to the Zodiac's fortress. After three days, they breached the walls and swept into the fortress. The legend says the Romans put the mercenaries to the sword, slaughtering them without mercy to a man, while the Immortals hunted down the Brotherhood and slew them all...
                    All but two members of the Zodiac who escaped with their master. Memnet-Ra was nowhere to be found.
                    Several of the Immortals, including Cleophon and Achilles, searched for the cult leader for several years afterwards, but never found him. He had vanished off the face of the Earth.

                    It has been over 2000 years and no trace of Memnet-Ra has ever been found, but rumours persist of a mysterious ancient Immortal moving silently in the shadows, quietly gathering acolytes to an ancient cause.

                    Is the Zodiac Brotherhood on the move again ? Time will tell...

                      From : Watcher Bureau, Japan
                      To : the Tribunal
                      28 January 2011

                      Words in Watcher Circles of Japan is that Kiem Sun has found the recipe for the Kwanlo root, with which is is building
                      an army of invicible mortals, as help in the Game. For the past five weeks, reports have been flowing in that Immortals
                      from all corners of Japan have been assaulted by packs of men dressed in fancy garbs, demonstrating super-human
                      strenght. Tomonaga Ijiro, his student Kondo Tatsumi, Eto Jiro and Genjo Ito have been assaulted and kidnapped.
                      They are now on the missing roster of Immortals. All are high-profile Immortals, with the exeption of Genjo Ito, student
                      of Hideo Tanaka. We expect the Samurai master to come knocking at Kiem Sun's door whnever the hunt for Henry of
                      Kent ends.
                      Kiem Sun has also been reported travelling a lot since the kidnapping and was present in each city where an Immortal
                      diseappeared. It is to fear the seven aforementioned Immortals were murdered by Kiem Sun, a childlike Immortal hidig
                      his cowardice, first behind walls, and now behind an army of supermen.

                      To : Watcher Tribunal
                      Date : 7 February 2011
                      To be added to the Chronicle of Kiem Sun

                      After preliminary investigations and confirmations, I sady report the death of Eto Jiro, his decapitated remains found in
                      a secluded place, bound and gagged.. The likely guilty part is Kiem Sun who had decided to leave a mark on the
                      Immortal world by becoming a headhunter after eight hundred years of living on Holy Grounds.
                      Tanaka is up for a revenge-driven quest for Kiem Sun and his battalion of supermen.
                      We shall see who prevails : the noble warrior, or the coward hiding behind and army of mortals.

                      From the Records of the Tribunal
                      13.02.2011
                      Ardath Bey, a diminutive woodcarver from Memphis who made his first appearance on the Immortal scene during an
                      encounter with businessman Habib ben Younes : a short encounter that led to a discussion in one of the provate
                      rooms of Ardath's cafe of Casablanca. Habib's Watcher never figured what the two men said to each other before
                      Habib left the place.
                      Between 1860 and 1900, Ardath travelled on two occasions, first in Iran, where it is suspected he visited
                      Hassan-ii-Sabba, the old man on the mountain living a secluded life in his fortress of Alamut : then to Ankara, Turkey,
                      where an encounter with Siah-Seck ended with the pirate woman's blade at his throat.
                      He told her something that made her scared to the point of getting her truly angered. Ardath and Siah-Seck's
                      Watchers were unable to record the verbal exchange between the two Immortals.
                      Had an encounter with two other Immortals in the 20th century : Musa Chekhamani in Tripooli during the mid-1970's
                      and Connie Richland in 1991, during her explration of the Valley of Kings in Egypt. Ardath warned Cordelia that the
                      Pharaoh's curse would strike her down if she dared violate the holy grounds of Egypt, but Cordelia shrugged it off...
                      and lost her head against Keith Boyer just asshe uncovered the burial chambers of Seti I's wives.
                      The inquisitive Watcher Research feels there may be connections between Ardath Bey and the aforementioned
                      Immortals : Richland's death by the blade of Boyer was too coincidental : could he have contacted the young pounk
                      so he'd go after Richland ?
                      And isn't it a bit curious that an Immortal woodcarver could have had 'pacifical' encounters with political big guns such

                      as Hassan-ii-Sabbah, Habib ben Younes and Musa Chekhamani ?

                      To be added to the chronicles of Inyotef and Tizkar of Sumer
                      In light of current events, we are forwarding to you an extract from an old myth we had previously dismissed as local
                      legend or folklore. It recounts a conversation between the ancient Egyptian Immortal Inyotef and the Sumerian
                      headhunter Tizkar just prior to his death in 523 BC :
                      ...but as the old Egyptian warrior, defeated, fell to his knees, his eyes flashed in defiance. Lifting his head, he said to
                      his conqueror, "Before you kill me, Sumerian, know this : I know who sent you, i know who it is you serve ! I have a
                      message for you to deliver to your master. Tell him i have seen the Old Woman, the Oracle. She knows what it is he
                      seeks. Tell him she has seen the future, she has seen his end. It will not happen now, but far, far from now. At the
                      time of the Gathering, when he sends his followers out into the world, bringing chaos and death to all, two of our kind
                      will stand against him : One, a Son of Athena, the other, a Daughter of Ares. Together, they are the Sword and the
                      Chalice, the Harbingers of his doom. They are the Future. My old student seeks godhood, they will see to it he is
                      forgotten, his name reviled. All those who bear the mark of Ra will be mercilessly slain to their utter desolation. This is
                      the message i bring, Sumerian. One day soon, your own head will fall and we will meet in the afterlife..."
                      And Inyotef was still laughing as Tizkar's sword fell.
                      It would seen this War was foretold over 2500 years ago by an Immortal known to Inyotef and Menmet-Ra as the Old
                      Woman or the Oracle. Further research is required to discover her origins.
                      We leave it to you to assess the identities of the two Immortals referred to as the Son of Athena and the Daughter of

                      Ares.

                      To : Watcher Tribunal
                      Report on the activities of Hideo Tanaka
                      20 February 2011

                      As expected, the samurai master investigated the deaths of the four Immortals, and mourned the passing of his friend
                      Eto Jiro and of his hoodlum student, Genjo Ito, swearing their death wouldn't stay unavenged. Hideo made contact with
                      Kojhi and Kokuten Tadaokoro, leaders of the Tadokoro Ninja clan who welcomed him as a friend and valuable ally and
                      agreed to follow him on his search-and-destroy mission against Kiem Sun and his army of killers who had been
                      positively identified as the murders of Jiro and other six other Immortals.
                      After a video-conference with Richeard of Mercia and Cleophon of Athens, Tanaka and the Tadokoro brothers decided
                      an alliance with the Yasujiro Clan was necessary if they were to survive the coming war. Fujita Isei of Japan
                      intelligence agency and associate of Tanaka was also enlisted as well as kabuki hero 'Flameshadow' : but first they
                      needed to convince stubbord Nariko Genji that, on her own, she had little chance to survive against Kiem Sun and his
                      army : the mortals hired by Kiem Sun could be anyone, could hide anywhere and strike at the least expected time.
                      They were worse than the Ninja in the sense that they could be anyone anywhere.
                      But Nariko Genji would hear none of an alliance with the nine heroes and swore the death of not only Hideo Tanaka,
                      but also of all the Tadokoro Clan and of the Ravenwood Immortals, boasting that she made alliances that would ensure
                      her final victory over her hated ennemies.
                      Naturally, this tantalizing revelations allows speculations on who her master may be : is he the powerful adversary
                      rumored to have triggered this senseless war ? Is Nariko delusionnal enough to believe that she stands a chance
                      against Ravenwood International and their allies ? Time will tell, soon enough I am afraid.


                      From the records of the Tribunal
                      22 February 2011
                      To be added to the Chronicles of Hideo Tanaka and Kiem Sun

                      The attack of Hideo Tanaka and of the Tadokoro Clan was swift and merciless. Using stealth and speed, they invaded
                      Kiem Sun's villa on the outskirts of Kobe and killed the the bodyguards, the dogs, the servant, all mortals imbued with
                      superhuman strenght, all of Chinese origins. It took a mere hour for the Ninja to fight the crazed mortals whose
                      strenght was merely boosts of adredaline triggered by a powerful drug, a deadly mix of cocaine and artificial
                      adredaline, as well as an unknown molecule : all this discovered after an autopsy was performed by Tokyio's Watcher
                      scientifical team on some of the people killed by Tanaka and his friends. Twenty-four mortals armed with swords and
                      assorted weapons creamed in the space of sixty minutes by the combined might of Tanaka and his associates : they
                      expected some losses on their side but fortunately suffered none.
                      Hideo Tanaka and the Tadokoro's Watchers witnessed how Kiem Sun was dragged out of his house, bound and
                      gagged and then taken to an isolated house for interrogation. The ear-piercing shrieks suggest violence and torture on
                      poor Kiem Sun, Tanaka didn't look pleased when the interrogation was done, I do not believe Kiem Sun's answers
                      satisfied him. I guess Tanaka hoped for clues on the identity of the man who gave Kiem Sun the recipe for the Kanloo
                      root.
                      Tanaka later disposed of the Immortal as he saw fit, allowing us to finally put Kiem Sun on the list of deceased
                      Immortals for Japan.

                        From the Records of the Tribunal
                        18 March 2011
                        To be added to the Chronicle of Henry of Kent

                        Deoneces, Frances Drummond and Clemont Haynes reunited with Hideo Tanaka after the attack against Kiem Sun's

                        army. Henry of Kent was seen in Tokyo, cruising for an easy Quickening, which he won't find with Japan's Immortal

                        population so severely depleted after Kiem Sun's attacks.
                        Tomorrow, the tag-team will resume its search, but time is of the essence : the Adversary is gathering its forces,

                        more and more Immortals are killed and the Ravenwood Immortals need Henry of Kent safe and sound of mind.The

                        Englishman is hiding somewhere on Hokkaido, safe in a Buddhist shrine, torn between his hunger for more

                        Quickenings and his torments over the lives he has taken so far.There are talks among Field Watchers to interfere and

                        disclose Henry's location to Deoneces, but we believe Deonecs and Hideo Tanaka, master hunters that they are, shall

                        find Henry soon before he is forever lost to the world as a champion of the Game.
                        Meanwhile, all of Ravenwood Immortal agents have gathered to London per instructions from Cleophon of Athens. The

                        Adversary is building his army, but so is the old Athenian.


                        From the Records of the Tribunal
                        30 March 2011

                        Word came in from East Asian Bureau, Japan Subdivision, that Deoneces of Sparta, Frances Drummond, Hideo

                        Tanaka and Clemont Haynes finally found their rogue colleague and friend, Henry of Kent, after four weeks of hunting

                        and the murders of four Immortals from Calfornia and Pacific Norhtwest.
                        The following is a report written by the Watchers of the four aforementioned Immortals to be entered in the Chronicle of

                        Henry of Kent. Henry of Kent was found in a Buddhist shrine located north of Honshù, an island nearly depleted of

                        most of its Immortal population in the last twenty years where Henry had still managed to kill two more Immortals :

                        athlete Kei Nishikori and historian Kanda Nobuo (see their Chronicles, Japan Database).

                        In contemplative prayers for the last few days, Henry welcomed his friends with a part of relief - the hunt was over - but

                        they could see he wasn't his usual self : serene, calm. This was a pained, tormented soul, thinner from not having had

                        a decent meal for weeks, shaking like a junkie under withdrawal, ill-shaven and with longer hair.
                        Frankie Drummond was the one who suffered most from her friend's condition : he was the one who got her out of her

                        'dark years' during mid-19ht century, and she so wanted to help her friend. Brooding Deoneces understood all too well

                        the darkness embracing Henry and Clemont, always the scholar, took the opportunity of studying the after-effects of a

                        Dark Quickening on an Immortal.
                        The four Immortals went to a sacred grove of Honshù, an ancient, hidden cave the Tadokoro brothers knew about from

                        their days of training with the White Witch of Honshù (see her chronicle for reference purpose). The cave has been

                        existing for 2500 years at the very least, and was a haven for Immortals of Japan seeking respite from the Game and

                        for those needing to be cured from temporary madness brought by the Game. It is written in the Chronicles that the

                        great Ramirez himself took his student Matsuhiro Kanagawa there and trained him in the use of the Katana before the

                        Game turned a brave warrior into the rogue and murderer he became.

                        There, Henry of Kent was left alone, having to fight his worst ennemy : himself. Because at this moment of his life,

                        Henry of Kent realised he had become what he hated most : a headhunter, a murderer of his own kind, well before he

                        targeted the Californian Immortals. Even if he came after rogue Immortals and players of the Game, it didn't change

                        what he was, that is a born-warrior who killed with gusto and enjoyed travelling and fighting other Immortals in duels to

                        the death. Even though he saw himself as a warrior doing what needed to bedone, the dark part of himself enjoyed

                        killing.And when Henry kiled Lucius Oranius Capito, a headhunter who lived in the gray area of Immortality, the power

                        of Capito's Quickening engulfed Henry's psyche and not even a favor of God could have saved him from the darkness

                        that engulfed him. In the cave, twenty feet underground, Henry fought the most important battle of his life and faced his

                        demons : the endless tortures he suffered during his First Death at Jerusalem, the shock of awakening on Earth, not

                        in Heaven and feeling so alone and Godforsaken. The confusion that came when Cleophon of Athens taught him of the

                        Game, of other Immortals. How he single-mindedly decided to come after those of his kind when Damon Case nearly

                        killed him.

                        Then the memories... the filth accumulated over ten centuries of taking the life-essences of the most evil, depraved

                        men and women who ever walked the Earth.. centuries, millenias of serial killing, rapes, torching villages, sacking

                        cities, enslaving men and women, torturing people : memories acquired from the Quickeninings of Immortals Henry

                        killed. All of this, Henry of Kent faced. He also faced the women he loved and lost, the friends he made and saw wither

                        and die, his line-brother Maharbal of Carthage who was killed by the Kurgan : he faced the temporary deaths he

                        suffered - buried alive in a landslide, being burnt on a stake, drowning while crossing the Atlantic sea, being captured

                        and put to death by the Spanish Inquisition : countless horrors he endured in his long, adventurous life as an

                        Immortal.

                        All of this, Henry of Kent faced.

                        The darkness was his, and his alone. Finally, the Englishman stopped fighting. He welcomed the darkness in him,

                        embraced it. He let it be a part of the good man he was, let the old wounds bleed then sew them up and finally healed.
                        When the ancient crusader got out of his cave, he was healed. But he would never be the same again : he explained

                        to his friends that he was done with the Game, with hunting other Immortals. It was over. In spite of their protests and

                        the fact a war was raging in the Immortals world, Henry felt their side had enough rave warriors and heroes and that the

                        Adversary had no chance against their combined might.

                          To be added to the Chronicles of Evliya Celebi, Ahmet Dede and Nasreddin Hoca.
                          We are signalling the arrival in London of Middle Eastern Immortals Evliya Celebi, Ahmet Dede and Nasreddin Hoca.

                          They met at Picadilly Circus and were joined by Richeard of Mercia and Eadwulf of the SIS : all five went at a local

                          pub and had a serious discussion about an espionnage assignment from none other than Kellistra for whom they

                          already did some work as agents in her search for Methos during hte 15th century on the North African coast, which

                          open a window to another past identity of K : Isra of Algiers, mysterious and elusive woman briefly associated to the

                          aforementioned three, and also the the murderous Hassan-ii-Sabbah.
                          Apparently, Kellistra wants the three of them to put their lives on the line as spies in Ari al-Muzaiyin group of hunters.

                          They are to travel all the way to Alexandria and hook-up with the smal group, pretending to be on the side of the

                          Adversary.

                          Celebi, Dede and Hoca are not only a friendly and well-liked lot in both the Immortal and Watchers communities, but

                          those are historical people, important to our records : Celebi the legendary explorer and writer, Hoca the trickster and

                          Ahmet Dede of the Islam Saint-Fools who 'never forgets a face'and survived encounters with more than one

                          headhunter.Kellistra certainly has good reasons to send them after Ari al-Muzaiyin and his men - Generals need good

                          spies in every war - but we do hope those three guys will live to see the end of the war and the defeat of the

                          mysterious 'Adversary'.

                          Mossane gathered her four students, the Water Snakes, and was heard telling them she didn't teach them how to

                          survive in the Game to become the foot soldiers of a power-hungry, half-crazy demi-God. She instructed them to pack

                          bags and swords and to take the next plane with her to London where she hopes she can forge an alliance with

                          Ravenwood International in spite of the bad blood she had with Immortal like Kellistra. Mossane belives she has two

                          things for her : informations on the whereabouts of the Serpent Squad and her past as a disciple of Sunda Kastagir

                          and vigilante on the African continent. Good luck to her ! Here is a woman in over her head : she is an ennemy of

                          Ravenwood and she just betrayed the Adversary.

                          Sparta, we have in London the five survivors of the original group that went after the elusive and powerful villain

                          Mmenet-Ra ! Could the old Egyptian be the elusive Adversary the Immortals are facing now ? If this be the case,

                          who could be the new Zodiac Brotherhood ?
                          And if Memnet-Ra really was behind those manipulations why shouldn't he have done so before ? After

                          cross-checking with the Watcher Research departments of Western Europe, It wouldn't be too much to infer that some

                          of its members can be identified as Helen King as well as - possibly - the Immortal Maiden. Those Immortals have

                          shown connections not only to HISS and to Ari al-Muzaiyin but are certainly behind the current Immortals War and

                          have proven to have powerful connections in the mortal world, able to trigger chaos at any given time.

                          Do you even realise what you are writing ? It would give an entire new meaning to the Game : all those Immortals

                          who died in the last 2000 years were then killed by a power-hungry Immortal with the dellusion of ruling the Immortal

                          world.It would mean that all those powerful, ancient Immortals weren't killed for the sake of the Game, but because

                          they could figure out who Memnet-Ra is. nIf Memnet-Ra is REALLY the villain Cleophon and Kellistra are fighting, then

                          he may be hiding under our noses somewhere in the Database, either a minor Immortal of unknown origins or one who

                          has never been identified so far.

                            Marie Laveau stormed in Baron Samedi's lair like a fury, and trashed the whole place, looking for the Houngan master.

                            Unfortunately for her, the Houngan was gone, so were his zombified slaves. The house was empty. Samedi somehow

                            vanished like a puff of smoke and is nowhere to be found : He is to be recorded as missing on the list of active

                            Immortals.

                            To be added to the chronicles of Timoteo of Lusitania and Joanna Vaz
                            Taking a pro-active stance in the war, Frances Drummond and her former student Viola Blanco hunted Timoteo of

                            Lusitania and Joanna Vaz all across Iberia : Viola had been training like crazy since the beginning of the war and

                            started to show the same gusto and cunning as the former Crimson Butterfly to the extant that Frances herself gave

                            her the moniker of Iberian Butterfly.
                            Proudly, Viola received a brand-new cup-hilted rapier from her former teacher before the two women started hunting.

                            They found the two headhunters in Salamanca, where the two ancient Immortals were processing the powerful

                            Quickenings of Hippolito Cabral and Gilardo Melgajero : Frances felt confident she could take on Timoteo or Vaz but

                            she wasn't too sure about Viola.
                            However, Viola had been insistent on taking part in the war, not wanting to share the sad fate of the other Iberian

                            Immortals who chose to stay in hiding.
                            A long time ago, she swore she would never hide again, and by God she would get a piece of the action ! Beside,

                            she had other weapons than just mastery of the sword : a crafty psychologist, she knew she could see though her

                            opponent's fighting techniques, a talent that helped her face other Immortals time and time again.
                            Ten years after a war of terror was brought on American grounds, two butterflies brought terror to two agents of

                            Memnet-Ra, coming after them in the middle of the night, yelling like furies and barely leaving theri quarries the time to

                            get out of bed and pick their swords.
                            The fight was brutal. Frances brought her usual speed and agility while Viola paced more, carefully studying Vaz's

                            swords move : when they were ready, both women took the offensive and utterly destroyed the Immortal couple's

                            confidence before finally taking them out. Frances and Viola's Watchers witnessed a rare occurence in the Game : a

                            double Quickening shared by two Immortals : it happenedonly with the Hauser Brothers, once with Frances and

                            Henry of Kent, another time with Deoneces and Kyra of Sparta during the Horsemen Crisis and now.

                            Supriya Bashkar is dead. Early this morning, she was challenged by Lalica : the fight was fought by the Persian

                            lioness challenging the Indian mongoose. For eight hundred years, Supriya played the Game with a vigor and a

                            passion scarcely observed in an Immortal woman, ranking her with the likes of Ceirdwyn, Alex Raven, and even the

                            legendary Kellistra. Lalica is a villain with class, a beautiful woman who played the Game because she felt this was in

                            the nature of Immortals : as centuries passed by, sheearned the respect of Ari al-Muzaiyin, Lucius Oranius Capito

                            and even Safiyah Khan. Is it any surprise if she is now among the last contestants of the ongoing Gathering ?

                              Brigaders : keeping one survivor, they managed to track
                              Fitipaldi to his lair where they found Fitipaldi's bodyguards and a huge surprise for us Watchers : a woman of Roman

                              Starting the hunt for the Zodiac Brotherhood, the Secret Daggers hunted Marcantonio Fitipaldi right to his roots, the

                              finally catching up to Fitipaldi.
                              Sigrid Solvig urged Fitipaldi to surrender, lest his life was forfeit, but the old fanatic had served the likes of Mussolini

                              before bowing before Memnet-Ra and knew no other way of living than under the boot of one overlord or another.

                              Baron Samedi has re-appeared in Porto-Novo, Benin, the root of Louisiana voodoo practiced by the old houngan. After

                              leaving his zombified slave-warriors in New Orleans to be institutionalized in a psychiatric ward, Baron Samedi

                              managed to create new ones in the space of a few months.

                              Suspecting foul play from Samedi, the two women investigated the origins of those attacks, which they found in

                              Porto-Novo : not wanting to take on Samedi on their own, Meja and Bebe asked for reinforcements which came under

                              the shape of the Secret Daggers.The six Immortals met and decided on a plan : there were at least twenty to thirty of

                              those zombies, they would need to be killed immediately before they could arrest Baron Samedi. Bebe and Meja

                              warned the Daggers that the houngan wouldn't let himself be arrested, he would rather kill himself before he would be

                              brought down by agents of Ravenwood.

                              Meja and Bebe would proceed to the arrest while the Daggers would be the 'muscle' against Samedi's army. Sumaye

                              and Assia were lucky to be alive as it were, Ravenwood didn't want to risk more losses.
                              Samedi's mansion was located on the outskirts of Porto-Novo by Marie-Louios d'Orty and Cain Brewser, guards

                              everywhere, armed to the teeth with dogs : the Daggers had little difficulty taking them down with guns and ammo.

                              The slave-warrior were another matter : thirty men and women armed with razor-sharp machetes, all mortals

                              fortunately.

                              There was nothing Sigrid Solvig and Radu Cozma couldn't handle while Swenja Baatze and Lootje De Groot fooled

                              around until Cozma reminded them to act like professionals : shoot first, play with swords later. Inside the house, a

                              grizzly sight awaited Bebe and Meja : Samedi, in a gesture of defiance, took his own life, his body ceremonially sat

                              on a throne, his head carefully placed in a jar. Baron Samedi had escaped the justice of Ravenwood.
                              Searching Samedi's house, the Daggers found conclusive evidences that Samedi was indeed a member of the Zodiac

                              Brotherhood as Ravenwood suspected. He bore the robes of the Cancer, a sign that is as much a symbol of life and

                              rebirth as it is of suffering and pain, perfect fit for a master of the undead world. His journals, written in a coded,

                              undecipherable language, gave few clues on his associates in the Brotherhood : his computer, once cracked, allowed

                              to give away the Helen King, Kamir, Mykhaltso Demidas as members of the Zodiac.


                              The Secret Daggers have landed on the island of Crete, joined by none other than KELLISTRA who got busy looking

                              for the elusive Helen King (aka Eleni of Sparta). The group of Immortals hoped to find Helen cowering on the former

                              headquarters of Memnet-Ra, a place they investigated last August, finding no clue on the Adversary's current

                              whereabouts.

                              Kellistra gathered her troops for her third and final confrontation against the Black Serpent Queen of HISS. It is on the

                              archaeological site of Knossos that Kellistra and her band fought a squad of swordsmen clad in black attire, their

                              clothes bearign the mark of HISS : a royal cobra swallowing the earth, tattoed on their chests, two dozen wild-eyed

                              fanatics surrounding theri mistress, the pathetically ageing Helen King, looking like a shadow of herself : Kellistra is

                              rumored to have tempered with Hzelen's life-essence, thus negating her regenrative abilities. The ensuing battle proved

                              to be epic, Kyra, Seraphina and the Daggers cutting a bloody trail though Helen's army while the woman cowered on

                              Holy Grounds.

                              When the dust settled, the mortals had been disposed off : then suddendly an explosion shook the site of Knossos,

                              the gatherered Immortals witnessed Helen's shrine being disintegrated by what sounded like thermite. All what was left

                              of Helen were bloodied clothing band. The Serpent Queen evaded capture in her own fashion. Surprisingly, her

                              Quickening wasn't reeived by any Immortal present : Kellistra explained how seven years ago she took Helen's

                              life-essence, living her in the state of a frail mortal. What power she must master to be able to perform this !
                              In the city of Knossos, Kellistra acknowledged she made a mistake by leaving the child in Helen's care and decided to

                              bring her back to London where she could be raised as a decent Immortal.

                                Immortal Maiden and Jin K were, fighting in one of the longest and most ragins fights ever recorded in Watcher history.

                                While Jin Ke used to be one of the best blades of China an retained al his vigor, Immortal Maiden was a devious and

                                tricky fighter who managed to take advantage of Jin Ke's weaknesses, eventually getting the upper hand. Jin Ke fell to

                                his knees, muttering 'Ravenwood will come for you, your little war is over' before his head fell to the ground. The

                                ensuing Quikcening was a mighty one, triggering a sudden, raging storm over Taiwan and causing for several millions

                                of Taiwanese dollars of property damage. The Maiden's victory gave her cohorts the moral strenght they needed

                                against May-Ling Shenand her team. But the China Enforcers didn't stand a chance against the coimbined might of

                                China and Japan Immortals who set their differences aside and, in mere minutes, saw their respective heads divorced

                                from their shoulders.
                                After properly disposing of the bodies and giving Jin Ke the funeral he deserved, May-Ling Shen and Hideo Tanaka

                                went in search for the Maiden had vanished without a trace. They are presumably looking out for their next targets,

                                possibly in Japan or in Europe where the Immortals Word War is still going strong.

                                they have concluded that Koschei the Deahless was the arch-rival of Memnet-Ra for the last one thousand years,

                                allowing us to place an approximative date of birth for him, and that the old Russian is unlikely to re-appear on the

                                Immortal scene : Ra finally had him executed by one of his agents in Russia, eather the Kurgan or Lucius Oranius

                                Capito according to the Immortals of Mother Russia.

                                Pro-active Seraphina rushed to Los Angeles, in search for the elusive Mykhaltso Demidas, an Immortal financialist

                                who so far gave few clues about his true loyalties. Lying low in the Game, so far, he never met any challenge and was

                                thought to keep a neutral position by Ravenwood.
                                We were wrong : the Immortal with Midas' touch coordinated all the attacks against Immortals living on US territory, in

                                relation with Pharamond, the Maiden and using sleeper agents across the entire country. His place on the Zodiac

                                roster is of the Scorpio, it certainly fitts him : a man obsessed with wealth and power, and thus corruptible, we knew

                                who he was all along and he played us all for frogs ! Naturally, reading his earler chronicles, he looks like a

                                sympathetic hero who discarded his sword and choose the ways of peace : a former associate of Kellistra and

                                Grayson who always walked between light and shadow and who should have been kept under better scrutinity.
                                Seraphina confronted him as the Scorpio of the Zodiac, but she didn't have the time to negociate an understanding as

                                Demidas viciously went on the attack, relentlessly keeping the offensive, keeping the most vicious moves against the

                                former gladiatrix. We finally understood he wouldn't let himself be taken alive because in the end, instead of blocking

                                Seraphina's sword, he let it slice though his neck ! Like a scorpio, Demidas chose death over betray

                                Methos himself took a plane for Dublin, where he hoped to confront his former disciple, Pharamond, and put an end to

                                this massacre. The man he met has been his student 2,000 years ago, they drank wine in Babylon together. Like

                                most of his discples, Pharamond took after Methos : an elusive man who passed himself as a legendary Immortal,

                                one rumored to have existed ages ago and who likely died against a better sword. Until he reunited with his teacher as

                                well as other Immortal at the top of the World Trade Center in 2000, he hadn't had a Watcher since Cherlemagne sent

                                his armies across the Danube : he was an unknown quantity, a minor Immortal who associated himself with shady

                                Immortals such as Annie Devlin, Andre Korda and Grayson.
                                The two Immortals met in a church and spoke in an ancient, undecipherable dialect : it sounded like Sanskrit, only

                                altered. Methos seemingly warned Pharamond that Cleophon of Ahtens and Kellistra were coming for him and that the

                                days of his master's reign were numbered. Pharamond retorted he would prevail as he always did, and that if Ra fell,

                                another one would take his place and the Game would beging anew. Methos spoke eloquently of how his allies were

                                detrmined to end the Game forever but also agreed that forever was too long a time not to be an utopia.
                                'We are mankind's dark mirror, Pharamond : Gengis Khan fell, anothertone took his place, Hitler fell his dreams

                                survive even as we speak'. The Australian bush isn't deep enough, the Everest not tall enough to help you hide from

                                the Son of Athena and the Daughter of Ares. Be careful.'
                                The two men parted ways, Methos went back to London while haramond organized a travel for himself for an

                                undetermined location.

                                against the Japanese immortal. The duel between the two masters lasted for hours - enough to make Bruce Lee green

                                with envy. Then Tanaka got the upper hand and sent the Maiden to the floor, kiling her by hitting pressure points on

                                to revive, and handed her Cixong sword to her. The Maiden knew defeat when she saw one, and mutely took the

                                In a matter of seconds, her life was forfeit and her head rolling on the ground. And so ends the Chronicle of the

                                  It is our belief he may have orchestrated the recent Immortal activities in the southern part of US territory : the fight

                                  To be added to the Chronicles of Safiyah Khan and Ya Nefer Ma’at
                                  In Mumbai, Ya Nefer Ma'at was fighting Safiyah Khan. The battle between the two women was epic, the Berber from

                                  Morocco against the Egyptian from Alexandria, the lover of Immortal life against the God-driven fanatic. The battle

                                  proved to be unconclusive as both Immortals were of equal strenght, in the end the two fighters were both so

                                  exhausted that they called for a truce and decided to choose the following evening to finish their battle. Both women
                                  are liked in the Watcher community - Safiyah may be a remorseless killer, but she has class, a vision, she is practical

                                  and fair. This week we found out where she stads in the ongoing war.
                                  The following evening, exactly twelve hours later, Khan and Ya Nefer Ma'at met again. Ya had been documented about

                                  Safiya Khan and knew that this was no ordinary killer she was facing : a player of the Game who believed Allah gave

                                  her a purpose in life and who had submitted her will to the power of an ancient and powerful Immortal from Egypt.

                                  Being Egyptian herself, Ya understood the fascination the ancient Egyptian gods could have on mortals and Immortals

                                  : Horus the hawk-god, Anubis keeper of the dead, Osiris whose chief-priest Raan had been her teacher. Ya tried to

                                  explain to Safiyah that whatever Memnet-Ra promised to her, he could never deliver : the ancient gods were long dead

                                  and forgotten, they could have no hold on anyone anymore. Allah's message to the Prophet Mohammet
                                  was a message of peace, neither of war, nor of hatred. What hold could he posibly have on her, she questioned.
                                  Safiyah honestly answered : she ddn't care about the so-called Adversary, and felt she was above wars ruled by

                                  Immortals with dellusions of grandeur. She fought in the name of Allah, and only to Allh would she give her life for he

                                  gave a purpose to the empty life she was living. She was going to take the head of Ya in His name, not for the sake of

                                  the war. Again the two women fought. This time, Ya Nefer Ma'at knew she had a death sentence on her head : if she

                                  lost the fight, Safiyah would show no mercy for she was too far gone. Safiyah's ferocity and speed knew no bounds :

                                  she had opened her heart in a moment of weakness, and she could afford no weakness.
                                  With anger, precision and skill she landed the Egyptian woman on her knees and before Ya could say one word... the

                                  sword fell down. Ya Nefer Ma'at was dead, but Memnet-Ra's forces didn't score another victory. Safiyah Khan is a wild

                                  card through and through. But to Safiyah, the victory was hollow. After disposing of the speedingly-decaying body,

                                  Safiyah went to a hrine and was last seen in prayers, her Watcher lost her in the crowd of Mumbai
