  • I like that paranoid trait of character about Evangeline and how you play with the ideas I gave you :-)
    Different Valkyries, then. Tough I wonder how Elfrida would have felt about her guard's Immortal counterparts.

    Cna you please post a list of all West African Immortals on your files ? I am looking for ten of them I deleted i nthe last two years, I cannot remember their names.

      Because my chronicles are still in a bit of a mess at the moment (5 years of neglect does that!), i'll most likely post all the African Immortals I've got, and you can see if any of them are the ones you deleted, is that okay?

      Meantime, any chance you can post the chronicles for the active and inactive Immortals of Central and Eastern Asia?

      Cheers

      • Hello friend, here are your Central Asia immortals :

        Roster of Immortals Status : Active
        Date :

        Victor :
        Watcher : Kateb Ghermari

        Background
        Original cultural affiliation : Afghan, Aseri
        Born : 1351; Steppes of Mazar-Y-Cherif,
        Afganistan
        First death : 1381, During capture of Herat by
        Tamerlane
        First teacher : Guard Guedji
        Known associates : Tomi Mets, Stacy Goldhawk,
        Aisha al-Fadhil, Hazeem Al Bachrim, Carter Wellan
        Known past associates : Guard Guedj, Sajeda Milad,

        Known ennemies : Safiyah Khan, Iman Fasil
        First recorded sighting : 1385. Afghanistan.
        Found and mentored bty Guard Guedj

        In 1351, when Tamerlane surged down Afganistan, a young man helped repelling the invaders and was killed for it. When he awoke, immortal, he was taken in by Guardi Guedji, the immortal known as "ancestor-to-all" because of his great age that was legendary in Afganistan. With help from his mentor, Yalvatch became one of the greatest champions of the Game and a skilled defensor of his people. If he became the man he is now, it is also thanks to Hazeem Al Bachrim and Carter Wellan who opened his mind to the outside world, be it the middlewest of the western countries. Yalvatch is now a freedom fighter in the Nothern Alliance, he has managed to expel the accursed Talibans from our country by uniting various Afghan groups fighting eachothers, with no small help from the American army, as he did against the Iranian three hundred years ago and during the Anglo-Afghan wars of the 18° century.

        Kateb Ghemari, October 2016

        Xu Kwang
        Notable characteristics : Scar on left shoulder
        predating First Death

        Background
        Original cultural affiliation : Mongol

        Meena Kamal, Emomali Nabiyev
        First recorded sighting : Mongolia 1590; seeking
        tutelage from May-Ling Shen

        What can be worse for a parent than lose one's child ? Especially when that child is barely six months old. Sudden Infant Syndrom is what killed little Chan, Dalai's baby. Dalai Bayamba wanted to be a mother so much, a thing that the nature of immortality forbade her, cursing her with a barrne womb. So she set on the procedures for adoption and within two years she had her baby. But little Chan died. And Dalai is alone again, crying over her loss and cursing her immortality, cursing her barren womb.

        Bagii Bayar, 2008




        Amyr Beg
        Known aliases : None
        Notable characteristics : Harsh taskamster,
        turned man of peace
        Weapon(s) : Mongol cavalry saber

        Kyrgyzstan
        Occupation : Professional falconer
        Prior occupations : Chieftain’ son, traveller,
        warrior, horseman, farmer
        Roster of Immortals Status : Inactive
        Date :

        Watcher : Pavel Ozov

        Background

        Yajub Yernazarov, Emomali Nabiyev

        First recorded sighting :140. Saya Mountains,
        Kyrgistan; Found and mentored by Jin Ke

        Amyr Beg trained Immortals in the ways of Immortality for nearly two thousand years before retiring during the years of WWII, he now trains falcons for the hunt, a more pacifical way to live with mother nature without having to teach others of his kind how to kill other Immortals. I don’t know where this change of heart comes from but this is an Immortal who renounced all violence and now thrives on peacful living.

        Pavel Ozov, 2015

        Watcher : Asmal El Kafi

        Background
        Original cultural affiliation : Magyar Jew
        Born : 1862, Hungary
        First death : 1916, Leading archeological
        expedition in Central Asia, killed by bandits
        First teacher : Kiem Sun
        Known past associates : Kiem Sun, Carlo Baldoni,
        Connie Richland, Andrew Kaspis, Kellistra
        First recorded sighting : 1929 Beijing, China
        Encounter with Zai Jie, no challenge made

        Sir Mark Aurel Stein, the archeologist, scholar, explorer and geographer; in 1916 he began expeditions in the Gobi desert and along the Silk Route where it is suspected he met his first death. Kiem Sun's Watcher, at this time, reported that his assignment had been tutoring a foreign, white explorer from England. Aurel Stein never liked the evolution of modern society : too much noise, too much pollution, women taking too much their rights for granted, at least in Occidental society. He is a man like a hammer --- or rather an excavating trowel. He has no interest at all, so far as anyone can tell, in sex, power, fame, luxury or excitement; money interests him only so far as the lack of it threatens his freedom of action.
        He formed some devoted friendships when young, but seems to have lost the power of attachment after reaching the age of thirty. In modern days, Stein led an archeological expedition in Afghanistan where he hoped to find a lead to some mysterious city that might have existed two hundred miles north of Khabul in ancient times.
        In the post-WWII world, Aurel Stein was observed in conversation with Ursula Katz, immortal woman constantly on the move. They ran across each other in Ulan Bator and seemed to have some previous connection (though unobserved by the Watchers). Perhaps they met through Kiem Sun? Anyway, Katz scoffed at Aurel's reactionnary view of the world, and suggested he should broaden his horizons and start getting a life, for a change.
        Aurel asked her how she was doing after the loss of her family in Buchenwald (?!!), Ursula answered that wiping the remnant of the ODESSA out did her a world of good.
        Nothing more is reported of this brief and tantalizing conversation, which opens several questions: did Katz loose students of her immortal line to the Nazis, and would careful research discover her presence as an underground fighter against the Eternal Reich . . . ?

          Fu Kang-ho keeps ouit of the Game, though he has been a very good one in the first centuries of his life. A Beijing businessman, he plays games on the board of trustees, his sharpest weapon is his tongue and his knoack at using Laws as help in the world of banking and financing. The remnants of the People’s Protectorate put pressure on him to recruit him in their covenant, a good position for him they said, with links to government officials, but Fu doesn’t care. He warned them to stay clear from his because he may be retired from the Game, but his Quing dynasty saber is still sharp and deadly in his hand.
          Not a good idea to antagonize a group like that !

          Hsien Tsiang has had many names, spelt in in different fashions on various translations and elsewhere. He lived in China in the seventh century, was born and raised a Confucian, but converted to Buddhism and became a celebrated Buddhist scholar at an early age. His adventures would form the inspiration for books and plays, prints and paintings, and (much, much later) even movies.
          After his first death and re-awakening, Hsien became convinced that Buddha himself had given to him a second chance at life, so that he could spread his word in China. And so Hsien-tsang began imparting the philosophy of Buddha upon fellow immortals across the whole Asian continent. In 675, he met up with immortal Xue Fang. It has been theorised Xue Fang wasn't the daughter of a general, as previously recorded, but rather an ancient immortal who was quite a firebrand during the seventh century.
          Hsien became a student of Confucianism under the tutelage of Lu Dongbin and with him formed the Eight Immortals travelling group of Chinese myth.

          From the records of the Tribunal
          8 September 2010

          Our hearty congratulations go to the Eastern Asia Research team for their cross-referencing work that allowed to find the current whereabouts and final fates of the elusive Eight Immortals of Chinese mythology.
          We always suspected Immortal Maiden was one of the Eight Immortals.

          Good work !
          What's next now, Sun Tzu ?

            Feuding against Kanagawa’s Yakuzas, labelled a
            traitor

            A violent character with uncompromising morals, placing the Law before everything, possibly to atone for the countless cimes he comitted in his “youth” : Kobayashi killed Immortal holy men from Japan on orders from Matsuhiro Kanagawa who sought to destroy Master Nakano Yodarushi and thus sent his disciple after any Immortal shrine keepr he could find, helped by hired muscle who would forcefully take the unfortunate Immortal out of Holy Grounds where Kobayashi would execute him or her. So far, four that we know of were murdered, all from different religions in Japan, including a Christian priest, two shintoist monks and a zen buddhist who studied under Nichiren in the 13th century. All innocent men, none of them Nakano Yodarushi.

            Kobayashi got a change of heart after his encounter with a “Holy Man” in 1952, whose Quickening altered his personality and changed a bandit into a champion of the Law. The identity of the Holy Man isn’t known to us but clues point us to Master Nakano Yodarushi, missing since the 17th century and whose illusion-casting powers match the Holy Man’s : apparently an Immortal able to blend so much with his environment that it looked like magic. Who knows. Kobayash, a master hunter, found him anyway and killed him. The Q. Kobayashi received is called a “Light Quickening’, contrary to a Dark Quickening that changes a good man into an evil Immortal, the Light one does the opposite. Kobayashi has been at war with his teacher Kanagawa ever since, before the latter’s death in 2006.The Law hasn’t had a champion like him since the days when Mako was taming the wild west in the 19th century or the state of Texas in the 1990’s.

            From the Tribunal :
            Watcher Research, Japan

            Akira Kawasai was a sorcerer from the Island of Honshû and an immortal, famous for serving Emperor Jimmu, legendary founder of Japan. Already a seasoned immortal, he married a Westerner immortal known as "the white witch" who might have well been a past identity of Kellistra, since Ijiro and Shun Kawasai were identified as foster children of hers. Since there weren't many Kawasai immortals recorded living in Japan, we are positive that Ijiro and Shun were raised as warriors by both the White Witch and Akira.
            Akira fell to the sword of Kellistra, for unknown reasons, before she leaft the Island and wandered all around Japan with her sons before disappearing by the turn of the century.
            Nothing else is knows about the White Witch, she was an elusive immortal, difficult to keep tracks of, not a drawing is left of her. The same apply to Akira, exept for an undecipherable coded journal. The origins of Ijiro and Shun Kawasai remains a mystery as well as the lives they led in the last thousand years.

            Dubbed ‘Deathmask’, little Flower of Carnage aka Kyala was a brillant and crafty assassin who murdered her way across the armies of Manchuria during the Russo-Japanese war and also killed Russian officers and soldiers, spreading tales of terror of an unkillable ghost who wreaked havoc wherever she went. Her motives for killing aren’t known to us but we suspect her to simply be a psychopathic immortal manipulated by Matsuhiro Kanagawa, using her thrillseeking personality to create chaos in this beginnig of the 20th century.
            Kyala disappeared in 1905, but for four hundred years she was the nemesis of the ennemies of Japan.

            Another signing in Tokyo, the fourth in one week. Izumi is one of the most proficient and successful manga illustrators on the market. Little do her editor and her public know that the adventures depicted in her stories - those of a woman disguising herself as an immortal samurai - are actually hes, according to what we picked from her convesations with other immortals in Switzerland and Japan in the last five years. She has be seeing Ursula Katz - aka Kellistra - and the Kawasai brothers on four separate occasions, alluding to the amazing adventures she has lived in the past under the identities of Hua Mulan in ancient China and Sakura Haruno in Medieval Japan.
            Truly an intriguing person, looking like a mere slip of a girl to whom no Watcher would give more than one century of existence. However, the descriptions of Huan and Sakura tend to match her features : to young women, looking frail but hiding a terrifying energy and deathly skills with the sword. A worthy student of Kellistra !

            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, Kenshiro Tatsuya, Izumi Sakaki, the Kisugi sisters, Jiro Eto and Genjo Ito
            Kenshiro Tatsuya and Izumi Sakaki dispatched their attackers like tornadoes, while the Kisugi sisters managed to escape thanks to their evading skills. Ijiro, Tatsumi, Jiro and Ito where kidnapped and were nowhere to be found.
            Kiem Sun has also been reported travelling a lot since the kidnapping and was present in each city where an immortal was attacked. It is to fear the seven aforementioned immortals were assaulted on orders from by Kiem Sun, a childlike immortal hidig his cowardice, first behind walls, and now behind an army of supermen.


            From : Yoko Fujikawa, Head of East Asia Bureau, Japan Subdivision
            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 deaths of : Tomonaga Ijiro, Kondo Tatsumi, Jiro Eto, Genjo Ito. Their decapitated remains have been found in secluded places, all were bound and gagged before they lost their heads. 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.
            Their deaths, is not only tragic because they were ambushed and murdered by a coward, but also those immortals represented different walks of life in Japan culture : Jiro Eto was a former Yamabushi and close associate to Hideo Tanaka, as was Genjo Ito, Tanaka's student.Ijiro was a 'Hibakusha', a survivor of 1945 Hiroshima boombing; his student a cyberspacer who had centuries of life ahead of him. With those immortals dead - especially the latter two - Tanaka is up for a revenge-driven quest for Kiem Sun and his batallion of supermen.
            We shall see who prevails : the noble warrior, or the coward hiding behind and army of mortals.

            killer targeting transvestite immortals

            Mitsunori Shibata once survived an encounter with George Chapman in 1954 when she was a very young Immortal, still wet behind the ears and few experiences of relationships with others of her kind. She thought he was a nice man to relate to, a connoisseur of men, women, fine wines, understanding of her dual nature. And once he got what he wanted from her, he asked for more: her Quickening. Poor Mitsunori was sorely disappointed but she fought like a little devil, well-taught by Keiko Watanabe. When the two women reunited in Tokyo, Mitsunori told her story to Keiko who wasn’t surprised her student survived : didn’t she teach her to stand ahead of nasty surprises like George Chapman ? Mitsunori was more trusting in that time, but she was prepared. She is less trusting now and even more prepared, ready to face the coming Gathering a few years from now.

            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.

            Four centuries of immortality have turned the frightened mouse murdered by her husband into a splendid player of the Game and a brillant competitor in sports like kickboxing, but also chess and mah-jong; brains and muscles, a craft combination of the two have turned the metre slip of a girl from 14th century Japan into a well-adjusted woman. And we all know how women need to be well-adjusted in Japan. Competition is extreme, puts a lot of stress, and women must fight twice harder than men to get at the top.

            In 1884, Zai Jie invited me to diggings in Japan, swearing we'd find treasures, I retorted I wasn't interested in a thousand years old garage inventory. But well, I needed the distraction and it beat fighting off old Samurai or getting involved with murderous geishas (look into Japan chronicles for a good read !). Note : William Adams wasn't me, just an European lost in translation and who made the most of the geishas while he could and lost the head completely to one of the local Immortal women. Speaking of the local, I had a good suprise with Zai Jie : Ayako Kitoagi, one of the most beautiful women to grace Japan alive and healthy after a 15,000 years sleep. The poor woman though she had gone to heaven (or hell) and was supposed to discover she was going to live again and pull through with no small help from smitten Zai Jie and modest old me, Methos the charmer.
            It took time and training but Kitoagi did very well, though she'd rather hide and busy herself with her little business in Yayoi, she write that it reminds her of her youth. She doesn't want to pick fights, but comes the time of the Gathering, she will have to make her choice : kill or be killed. Personally, I wish she'd train in earnest after all the trouble Zai and I went though to educated her in the customs of the 19th century.

            Kondo lived in his parent's basement surrounded by computers and state-of-the art technology, sealed away from reality and living only in cyberspace. Then his parents went away for one week holiday during wich Kondo forgot to feed, drink and clean himself. And that's how he died. From self-exhaustion. Burnout. In 2008 Kondo has progrssed: from a cyber-obsessed computer geek, he turned into a fine student under Ijiro's guidance, learning to appreciate the company of his fellow men and to properly use a sword.

            Born : 1910, Hiroshima Japan
            First death : 1945, Served poisoned herbal tea by
            Ota Hideki to avoid pain from radiation poisoning

            First recorded sighting : 1950. Outskirts of
            Hiroshima. Found by Ota Hideki

            From the Records of the Tribunal :

            In Japan, after the bombs struck Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the Hibakushas were treated with sympathy and sorrow in the middle of the horror that reverberating across the entire archipelago. Yet, as human beings they were little more than social outcasts, never allowed in any family for marriage and viewed with contempts, seen as unclean genetic stock.
            After losing his sight watching the flash of Hiroshima, Tomonaga felt himself dying from slow radiation poisoning and with nothing to love settledin Hokkaido, where he hoped to find the strenght to put an end to his life. Instead of finding deadth, he found hope in the person of ancient calligrapher and painter Ota Hideki (aka Hokusai), four hundred years old immortals who gave him a herbal tea that alowed him a quick, painless death. When Tomonage awoke, he was a blind immortal with a short life ahead of him. Ideki trained him in the use of the katana and on how to use his smell and hearing to locate himself in space and his seventh sense o defend himself in the Game.
            It took him five years of training with Hideki to master his remaining senses, five more to become a master of the Game. By the end of the 1960's, Japan had a new player in the Imortal Game, able to make a difference in the battle of good vs evil.

              The Jongmyo Shrine was added to the UNESCO World Heritage Site list in 1995 and is located in Seoul. The shrine is dedicated to the spirits of the ancestors of the royal family of the Joseon Dynasty. It is heavily influenced by Korean Confucian tradition. An elaborate performance of ancient court music (with accompanying dance) known as Jongmyo jeryeak is performed there each year. When it was built in 1394 it was to be one of the longest buildings in Asia. There are 19 memorial tablets of kings and 30 of their queens, placed in 19 chambers. The shrine was burnt to the ground during the Imjin wars with Hyech’o thought lost, possibly killed by an immortal, but rebuilt in 1608 by Hyech’o himself.
              His recent death is a true loss to the immortal world.

                    Bloody hell! Lol
                    And here's me still sorting through the chronicles of the 2000-odd i have and hoping i haven't lost any! Which is why i'm grateful for you posting all the active and inactive Immortals of the present day, so at least I've got a place to organise from. Much appreciated.

                    As promised the next SIS/Hellfire Club instalment:

                    1002 - St Brice's Day Massacre. Fearing how much influence Ailef still wields among the Vikings still in England and the threat he poses, suspecting many of them may be aiding Elfrida's raids, Richeard convinces King Aethelred to order the deaths of all leading Danes in England. Among those killed is Gunhilde, the sister of King Sweyn I of Denmark.

                    1003 - Sweyn Forkbeard, King of Denmark, invades England in retaliation for the St Brice's Day Massacre. At his side is Ailef, and among his leading commanders is Elfrida and her Valkyries.

                    1004 - Elfrida leads raids in Devon and East Anglia.

                    1006 - Elfrida raids south eastern England from the Isle of Wight to Reading and spends the winter at Wallingford with Ailef. Richeard contemplates sending Alfgar to Wallingford to kill Elfrida, but recognises it would be a suicide mission and abandons the idea. By this time, Richeard has come to the realisation that Ailef outsmarted him by tricking Richeard into orchestrating the St Brice's Day Massacre so Ailef could invade England with the Danes at a distinct advantage. He vows he will never be tricked that way again.

                    1009 - Vikings led by Elfrida occupy Sandwich, Kent, attack London, and burn Oxford.

                    1011 - 29 Sept. Elfrida and the Danes capture Canterbury after a siege, taking Aelfheah, Archbishop of Canterbury, as a prisoner.

                    1012 - 19 Apr. Ailef has Aelfheah of Canterbury executed at Greenwich to prevent him being rescued by Richeard and Alfgar.

                    1013 - July. Sweyn Forkbeard, King of Denmark, is proclaimed as King within the Danelaw.
                    25 Dec. Sweyn, with Ailef and Elfrida by his side, is proclaimed King of all England in London. Ailef orders the capture of Richeard and Alfgar, but they escape and flee to Normandy with Aethelred.

                    TO BE CONTINUED.

                      The horrors of gang rape and of the war in Congo reminds Tantini Kahindu of the wildlife in Africa : untamed, savage, destrying all beauti and innocence in this world. Six years after being ravaged by Hutu soldiers, her village destroyed for futile reasons, Tantini has found a new home in the Augustine convent maintained by immortal Beatriz Kimpa Vita. She studies, trains with the sword, learns about the vast world outside so that when she feels ready, she can leave Congo for good and make a new life for herself, hoping to keepr her nightmares away forever. This is agood person, a young woman scared and scarred but who, under proper guidance, will find her way on the Immortals scene and maybe in the Game.

                              I don't work with Apollo2 anymore really. I still see him, but he has other things going on in his life these days. He lost interest when the old site went away and hasn't really got the interest back. I'm doing this myself now.
                              I'll get those Latin American names for you and i will post those African names once I've got all the old chronicles sorted out.

                              In the meantime, here's the next chapter in the ongoing Richeard/Ailef saga:

                              1014 - 3 Feb. Richeard and Alfgar set in motion a plan to restore Aethelred to the throne. Richeard reaches out to loyalists in London and sends an agent, a trained assassin, who infiltrates the Royal court and poisons Sweyn Forkbeard. He dies at Gainsborough, Lincolnshire. His son, Cnut, is proclaimed King of England by the Vikings while Ailef suspects the hand of his former brother-in-arms.
                              Mar. Aethelred returns to reclaim his throne at the invitation of English nobles, allies of Richeard and Alfgar. At the same time, thanks to Richeard's influence, Olaf II Haraldsson of Norway attacks London in support of Aethelred.
                              Ailef and Elfrida urge Cnut to leave England and return to Denmark to enforce his rule there.
                              Among the victims of Olaf of Norway's attack on London is a local street thug and cutpurse named Saegar Lightfingers, cut down by a Viking sword and found wandering the streets by Ailef, who takes him with him back to Denmark. Saegar will in time abandon his birth name for that of his Hellfire Club name Sampson Brass.

                              To add:

                              SAMPSON BRASS

                              Known aliases: Saegar Lightfingers (birth name)

                              Born: 985, London, Kingdom of England
                              First death: 1014, killed during King Olaf II Haraldsson of
                              Norway's attack on London
                              First teacher: Ailef of Deira, aka Aldrich Monk

                              1015 - By this time, Richeard and Alfgar have come to the conclusion that Aethelred is an unsuitable king. This is further proven when Sigeferth and Morcar, chief thegns of the Five Boroughs of the Danelaw, come to an assembly in Oxford where they are murdered by Eadric Streona, Aethelred's enforcer whom Richeard suspects is an agent of Ailef, owing to his support of the invading Danes. Richeard and Alfgar throw their support to Edmund Ironside, Aethelred's son, who has revolted against his father and established himself in the Danelaw.
                              Aug. Cnut launches an invasion of England with Ailef and Elfrida at his side, along with Ailef's protégé-in-training Saegar.

                              1016 - King Aethelred dies, and is succeeded by his son Edmund Ironside.
                              May. Battle of Brentford: King Edmund defeats Cnut, who then besieges London. Both Richeard and Ailef fight in the battle, along with Alfgar and Elfrida. They all seek each other out, but the chaos of battle means they all avoid each other.
                              18 Oct. Battle of Ashingdon: Cnut defeats King Edmund. Richeard and Ailef finally meet again in battle. Richeard gains the upper hand, but their fight is abandoned when the English are forced into retreat. Edmund signs a treaty with Cnut, leaving Edmund as king of Wessex only.
                              30 Nov. King Edmund dies and Cnut takes control of the whole country, exiling the remaining members of Edmund's family, including his two sons, Edward and Edmund. Richeard and Alfgar are forced to leave Wessex and head north when Ailef sends men to hunt them down.

                              To add:

                              Inconclusive fight between Richeard of Mercia and Ailef of Deira, aka Aldrich Monk, 1016

                              TO BE CONTINUED

                                • Greetings, Gardner! I'll work on those 20 Latin American names for you and get them posted ASAP. In the meantime, could you post the active and inactive Immortals of Southeast Asia please?

                                  Those African names are taking longer than i thought as my old chronicles are still in a bit of a mess at the moment and it's taking longer to sort through them than i thought. As soon as I've got everything sorted i'll list them here.

                                  Anyway, here's the next chapter in the ongoing Richeard/Ailef saga:

                                  1017 - Ailef arranges the marriage of Cnut to Aethelred's widow Emma of Normandy. Cnut then divides England into the four Earldoms of Wessex, Mercia, East Anglia and Northumbria controlled by himself, Eadric Streona, Thorkell the Tall, and Eric Haakonsson respectively.
                                  Christmas - Ailef arranges the murder of his former ally Eadric, having outlived his usefulness, and sends Saegar to carry out the killing. Ailef begins forging his protégé into a blunt instrument, a weapon to be used agaimst his enemies. Cnut appoints Leofric as Earl of Mercia.

                                  1018 - Cnut succeeds his brother Harold II of Denmark on the Danish throne. Richeard and Alfgar remain in hiding in northern England, moving from place to place while planning their next move against Ailef and Elfrida.

                                  1020 - Richeard and Alfgar smuggle themselves out of England and into Normandy.

                                  1025 - Ailef helps King Cnut forge an alliance with Byzantine emperor Constantine VIII. Meanwhile, after 5 years scouring the length and breadth of the British Isles, Elfrida realises Richeard and Alfgar have escaped. Their whereabouts remain unknown to Ailef and Elfrida.

                                  1027 - Cnut invades the Kingdom of Scotland, forcing Malcolm II to pay homage.
                                  14 May: Richeard and Alfgar attend the crowning of Henry I as King of France at Reims cathedral.

                                  1028 - Cnut becomes King of Norway in addition to King of Denmark and England and Ailef, close adviser and friend to the king, has never been more powerful or influential. He revels in his personal victory over Richeard.

                                  TO BE CONTINUED.

                                  Cheers

                                    The movie ‘Lilet never happened‘ featuring the life of an underage prostitute in Manilla had for main actress an actual teen prostitute called Lilet, aka Alyssa Bautista, a street teen fending for herself in the Philippines sicne 1886, the years of her first sighting. She lived a life of thievery and prostitution, on the fringes of society and where the Game was concerned taking advantage of her youthful looks, taking immortals off-guard with a knife, or poisoned cosmetics before taking their heads. Be they merchants for a foreign power, businessmen, tourists or the odd sexual predator, they fell to her sword and we are positive that a fair number of missing immortals on our roster are among her known quarries. While the movie depicting her life is heart-breaking, and tells hard truths about underage prostitution in Southeast Asia, Alyssa made her choice in life, or maybe she lives this life because she knows no other way to live.

                                    Sumatra, taught the Game by Giovanni Caboto

                                    In 1999, Andrew Kaspis' body was found by his Watcher, headless, after being missing for one week. Not only did it remove an excellent player of the Game from the world, but also a brillant researcher on the verge of finding cures for some of mankind's plagues such as heart diseases.
                                    But I'm not writing Kaspis' final report. His death is linked to the activities of a fearsome headhunter, not only an immortal but also a genuine headhunter : born in Indonesia around the 17° Century, Ramelan of the Batak hailed from a culture that saw men bring the art of eating human flesh to the ranks of science.
                                    Giovanni Caboto, aka John Cabot, immortal, visited Batak land on February 1820. His ship had to put in for water at Tapanuli, a very large bay a quarter of the way down the Sumatra coast to Bencoolen. The country here was inhabited by a proto-Malay race called the Bataks. His friend and Watcher Marsden, in his History of Sumatra, had said the Bataks were cannibals. So had some earlier Portuguese explorers. There was something too in Marco Polo's 'Travels' to that effect. Raffles found 'the Bataks are not a bad people, notwithstanding they eat one another. They are not savages, for they write and read, and think as much or more than those brought up in our national school'. He admits that 'the Bataks' 'state of society is very peculiar'.
                                    Cabot made an educated man out of Ramelan, teaching him of the Western world, but also of the Game, of Quickenings and the power they gave. Since cannibals also believe severing an ennemy's head and eating his flesh will give them his powers, Ramelan made a point of challenging every immortal he met in Southeast Asia, taking their heads and keeping them as trophies, shrunken.
                                    After parting company with Stein, Ramelan went back to Sumatra were he met up with immortal pirate Siah-Seck ("Black Dog") with whom he hooked up and started plundering the China sea, ransacking ships, taking heads and making quite a name for himself : Ramelan, the immortal cannibal who will take your head and also your body ! One century later, Ramelan might perfectly have integrated the ways of the "civilized" world, but still : he is the ultimate headhunter of the immortals community.

                                    Duncan MacLeod tends to drive his students wild, leaving them unchecked on the immortal scene. Richie Ryan matured into a prolific player of the Game, Gregor Czardas is neurotic, Danny Cimoli was given the fear of God so to speak, to the extent of comign after his teacher’s head, Devon Merrick was left untrained.
                                    I could go on. Maya Samphan is one of the immortal women he took under his care and showed as less psychological skills with the poor woman than with Cimoli or hapless Yora Comba, we should be lucky she didn’t become a serial kilelr like Lucretia Calabriani. This is a decent woman who has been playing the Game in her own fashion, coming after any immortal hurting her people while at the same time preserving as many books as she can at the Monastery of Saigang, in Burma.

                                    Date : 25 December 2011

                                    After killing their way across Iran, Irak and Israel, Sghair M'Barek and Fethi Zouaoui made their way to Jerusalem, Palestine, where they hoped to find the fabled Ishtar of Erech and her consort, man of peace Jesus of Nazareth. While we shudder at the idea of immortals fighting in a holy city like Jerusalem, let alone killing Jesus Christ himself, we didn't neeed to be afraid : the two immortals were met on the outskirts of the city by Ishtar and Siah-Seck, pirate woman ad long-standing associate of Kellistra when they were operating in London in 1888 as the Whitechapel Trio. Instead of spending the day of Christmas with her lover, also his birthday, Ishtar was forced to fight again; Siah-Seck, not a Christian herself, found thrilling to score another victory for Ravenwood.

                                    Siah-Sek's name means "Black Dog" in Turkish. She first appears in Watcher records in 1396, where she was observed meeting her presumed first death. At the time she was already a full-fledged pirate, and in fact died boarding a vessel on the Black Sea. It is only by chance that a Watcher had taken passage aboard this unlucky ship, and survived to record the emergence of this highly intriguing immortal. Although Siah-Sek was then Watched and her history recorded diligently by Watchers of proven skill, it was not until she met Benjamin Constant several centuries later (!!) that it became obvious that this old and dangerous immortal was not a man, but a woman ! Evidently, Siah-Sek could not resist Constant's charms. A flaw that would be the downfall of many women both immortal and mortal. Her shocking mesalliance with young Benjamin was the scandal of London society, but it gave the clue to her current Watcher: the pirate was a piratess and always had been so, living her entire career in male disguise and never once being found out. She was a seaman at the time of her first death and a smuggler; an infamous pirate and highwayman in later days, roaming the Mediterranean area and the area of Ankara. Almost to the present day, Siah-Sek was the scourge of merchant ship captains and proprietors of cruising boats. Siah-Sek vanished in 1987 and is presumed deceased. I have searched for my immortal for five long years now, and must reluctantly close the Chronicle of one of the most swashbuckling women ever born . . .

                                    Chani turned down Ravenwood’s offer to join their ranks as bodyguards of celebrities, she has much to do in her job, way too many brothels to close down and children to save from predatory pedophiles. There is also the small business of havign to play the Game so as to cull immortal numbers in Thailand from European pedophiles, she bags one each passing years. Great help from corrupt police force too, she has to bribe them so she can get proper investigations on brothels and no investigation on decapitated bodies lying around.

                                    According to legend, immortal Kan-chiang lived from 403 to 221 B.C., the period of the Warring Kingdoms, China was divided into militaristic states fighting with increasing ferocity as they refined the machinery of warfare. Towards the end of this period, two large kingdoms, Ch'u and Ch'in, having subdued many of the other kingdoms, were each striving towards the goal of unifying China under one rule.
                                    The tale of "The Magic Swords" discloses what the Original cultural affiliations of this immortal might have been :
                                    In ancient China, Kan-chiang the wondrous swordsmith took three years to forge a matched pair of swords (called male and female swords) angering the King of Ch'u who vowed to slay the smith when the blades were delivered. As the smith completed his task, his wife was nearing her time of birth, and her husband told her he feared that the King would kill him; he told her that if her child was a son, then when this son came of age, to have him go to the south hill where on a stone, stood a pine with the sword in its back. Then he set off, bearing the female sword, to deliver to the King - who had been warned by divination that the swordsmith would cheat him of the male sword - and who killed him in a rage.
                                    When the swordsmith's son Ch'ih came of age, his mother told him this terrible story and sent him out to find the sword. Leaving the house, the boy faced south; there he saw no hill, but a pillar of pine on a base of stone; with his axe he hewed open the back and found the male sword. Then he burned for revenge day and night.
                                    The King dreamed that a youth was coming to kill him, and offered a thousand in gold for the lad's head; Ch'ih heard of this and fled into the mountains, singing a sad song as he did. There, he met a stranger and told his tale; the stranger said, "I hear the King offered a thousand in gold for your head. Give me the sword and your head! And I will avenge your father."
                                    "Excellent!" cried the youth. Then and there he slit his throat; then, still standing upright, he offered the sword with one hand, his own head with the other.
                                    "I shall not betray you," promised the stranger, and only then did the boy's body topple; carrying the head, the stranger then went to the King . . . who was delighted. "Reward me!" said the stranger, "but first, remember: this is the head of a brave man. You had best boil it in a cauldron."
                                    The King did so. But for three days and nights the head would not perish, but leapt up angrily in the boiling water whenever it beheld the King. The stranger said then, "I fear the boy's head will never cook until Your Majesty comes close to rebuke it!" But when the ruler drew near, the stranger drew the male sword and swopped the royal head off with a single blow, letting it fall in the cauldron; then he cut off his own head, and it too fell into the soup. All three heads cooked into one, and therefore the King's people divided the whole into three portions and buried them in the place now called the Tomb of the Three Kings.
                                    According to some versions, Kan-Chiang Mo-yeh was the swordsmith's name; others say these were two names, those of the swordsmith and his wife, or else those of the male and female sword.

                                    Once a warrior, mass murderer, serial rapist and kilelr of women and children, with sins on his cosncience to make the devil pale with envy, Sau Bay Gyi was so feared and hated on the South Asian continent that his enneies were too numerous to count and there has been a fair number of immortals coming at the doors of his monastery, requesting his head on a silver plate. But Sau Bau Gyi made peace with his ghosts and accepted that the evil immortal he once was had disappeared forever, all this thanks to the teahcings of Hsien-Tsiang, oen of he most peaceful immortals on Earth, the Darius of Southeast Asia.
                                    His latest conflict came in 2010 when a Mon immortal challenged him for crimes comitted against her people, and this time he was ready to surrender, but his friend Maya Samphan would’nt allow it and she dispatched Law-Yone herself. Such a gesture coming from a woman once murdered by the Kher Rouges during the Cmabodian Genocide speaks volumes of the kindness and generosity coming from this man who doesn’t advocate violence and has stated that no Buddhist can be a nationalist : Buddhism ignore races, states or religions. Or the Game.

                                    rule of the Burman monarchy.

                                    Law-Yone never forgave Sau Bau Gyi for the part he mistakenly tookin the massacre of the Mon people by the Burmese in the 18th century and for three hundred years hunted him al though Southeast Asia : Thailand, Laos, Vietnam when the war raged on, she allied herself with Immortal Maiden to seek him out in the monasteries of Lhassa, Tibet, to no avail, she could never find him. Sau Bau Gyi is a man who hides behind many walls but those walls allow him to make penances for countless sins he has on his conscience, something his friend Maya Samphan understands well. However she knew that if Sau Bau Gyi allowed Mon to take her revenge, to kill him in comabat, it would solve nothing : it wouldn’t heal Louisa’s wounds and a good man would be removed from a world bereft of Darius. A wild card, Maya Samphan discretly challenged Louisa, offerign her to walk away. Which she did, choosing life over death, forgiveness over hatred..

The two women took the lesson at heart and laid down theri swords, to solely concentrate on their music and theri love for each other.

                                    "If music be the food of love, play on", wrote Shakespeare. Susis Sartika and her friend Erna Layar are acomplished violin players and were acomplished players of the Game until an encounter with Claude Devereux in 1990, also a violin musician, who convinced them that the violence of the Game would destroy them as it did him with his constant search for Felicia Martins : his hatred for the woman who killed his wife and child eroded his passion for music and there was only a gaping hole in him. The two women took the lesson at heart and laid down theri swords, to solely concentrate on their music and theri love for each other.

                                          First recorded sighting : 1990. Islamabad,
                                          Pakistan. Preparing attack on World Trace Center,
                                          postponed by Deoneces and Kyra’s hunt for ESA

                                          Mahrus Al Zaman was the reason the CIA group led by Thomas Morehead became so paranoid about Muslim Immortals living on Americazn grounds after the WTC attacks. A Muslim Immortal with links to the Eternal Swords of Allah who led a terrorist reign of terror in Europe, Mahrus lived an unassuming life in America before it was revealed he was involved on the planned attack on the Word Trade Center in 1993. Oskar Felder was in charge of his execution but not before the Immortal revealed there were a dozen others like him across the world, planning terrorist attacks on the Occidental World and that their secure world would seen be set ablaze, predictign the terrorist attacks of the 2000’s and 2010’s. Thomas Morehead did he best to investigate all Immortals of Muslim and Arab background living in America and had a database in hands when the twin towers fell on 9/11. The Immortals they killed had no links to the ESA, exept for one who disowned Jamal Labdouni’s group, but he was captured and killed too. The Swords of Allah’s legacy not only impacted the mortal world but also imbalanced the Game, creatign a new spiral of violence that went out of control.

                                            • Loved what you did there with the new ESA! Glad to see my original ESA idea sprang new roots in your own imagination, my friend lol
                                              Could you post the chronicles of the Immortals Matoub killed? I notice there are updates there to my own lists.
                                              I'll be posting those 10 female Latin American names first, then i'll get straight onto those ESA names you want!

                                              In the meantime, the next chapter of the SIS/Brimstone struggle:

                                              1029 - Richeard and Alfgar arrive in Normandy and offer their services to Robert, Duke of Normandy, who Richeard has determined will offer a chance for him to outwit Ailef, due to his continued support for the exiled English princes Edward and Alfred.

                                              1031 - Ailef and Elfrida are by the side of King Canute as he invades Scotland and forces the submission of Malcolm II of Scotland.

                                              1034 - Against the advice of Richeard, Duke Robert of Normandy decides to go on pilgrimage to Jerusalem.

                                              1035 - Jan: Robert, Duke of Normandy convenes a Council and has the assembled Norman magnates swear fealty to his son William as his heir on the advice of Richeard and Alfgar, who see the youth's potential in Richeard's long-term plan. Robert dies in early July at Nicaea, on his way back to Normandy.
                                              12 Nov: King Canute dies and is succeeded by Harold Harefoot as King of England.

                                              1036 - After Harold's half-brother Harthacanute claims the English throne, the Council of Oxford, which includes Ailef, declares Harold regent for Harthacanute. On the advice of Ailef and Elfrida, Harold seizes the royal treasury from Queen Emma of Normandy.
                                              5 Feb: The exiled prince, Alfred Aetheling, with support from Alfgar, who accompanies him with a small band of chosen men, is blinded and murdered in an ambush while attempting to seize the throne of England from Harold. Elfrida, who arranged the ambush, leading her newest group of Valkyries, confronts Alfgar and the two fight once again, while Saegar kills the English prince. Outnumbered, Alfgar breaks off the duel with Elfrida and flees with his few remaining men.

                                              TO BE ADDED:

                                              Inconclusive fight between Alfgar of Winchester and Elfrida of York, aka Evangeline Black, 1036

                                              EVANGELINE BLACK

                                              Notable characteristics: Always accompanied by six mortal female
                                              bodyguards, all orphans adopted and personally trained in weapons and
                                              martial arts by Evangeline, notable for their smart black pant suits and
                                              sunglasses, known as her Valkyries

                                              (Note: if one of her Valkyries is killed she already has several trained women
                                              waiting to assume their place, so she always has six by her side)

                                              Cheers

                                              • Evangeline's bodyguards : her own private corps of Hellions... Dubbing them Valkyries and I guess she must have had hundreds of mortal girls bodyguarding her over the centuries.
                                                All orphans ? Pre-immortal orphans ? lol

                                                  All orphans ? Pre-immortal orphans ? lol
                                                  No, my friend, never pre-Immortals lol She doesn't trust other female Immortals, remember?
                                                  And yes, she's trained hundreds. Most of the girl orphans she trains come from abused backgrounds, so she sees it as rescuing them and giving them purpose.

                                                  Cheers

                                                  • Interesting. Do you think she may have been the queen of the "40 Elephants" women gang of London ? All of them thieves and assassins, worse than male gangs could be. Active from the 1890's to the 1920's or so.
