  • 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.

      Found on the streets by Horacio Aquiler

      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.

      Background
      Original cultural affiliation : Batak
      Born : North Sumatra, Indonesia; undetermined date
      First death : Unrecorded
      First teacher : Giovanni Caboto
      Known past associates : John Cabot, Siah-Seck
      First recorded sighting : 1822; Pematangsiantar,
      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.

      From : Watcher Bureau, Southwest Asia
      To : Watcher Tribunal
      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.

            Found and metnored by Jamal Labdouni and the
            Swords of Allah



            Swords of Allah Mahrus Al Zaman

            Known aliases : None
            Notable characteristics : Religious fundamentalist,
            converted to Muslim religion

            Eternal Swords of Allah, leading the group which
            planted the bomb in he World Trade Center
            Prior occupations : Islamist terrorist
            Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
            Date : 26 February 1993 World Trade Center
            Bombing
            Place : Vancouver BC
            Victor : Oskar Felder, CIA
            Watcher : Research, US Northeast

            Background
            Original cultural affiliation : Pakistani

            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

                    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.

                    • 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.

                      Comment


                      • Could be an interesting idea. She is, after all, the Black Queen, and in later centuries, unlike the SIS, Brimstone/the Hellfire Club moved away from politics and more into personal gain, criminal enterprises, and basically being a pain in the ass for the SIS.

                        Cheers

                            A champion of the Game, Hazeem Al Bachrim's First Death is the event that defined his immortality, as well as his encounter with Sudala, his first teacher : Azaam of the Ashanti (meaning : determine,d resolved) failed a tribal ritual that was going to make of him the chief hunter of his village and died, only to be dug up from his grave by Sudala who explained to him the reason why his totem, Anansi, had rejected him : he would walk the land of the living forever until the time of the Gathering, when the surviving immortals would fight to the last for the fabled Prize. Sudala taught him that he had to become the champion of the Africans and encouraged him to fight only the best. Eager to prove himself, Hazeem Al Bachrim followed that principle with a vengeance : he challenged only the best, most powerful immortals, in the hope of proving his manhood to himself, having already failed his tribal ritual and to rejoing the spider-godd Anansi. Hazeem Al Bachrim trevelled the world, met other immortals, challenged many and always was victorious.

                            From the Chronicle of Carter Wellan and Hazeem Al Bachrim
                            To be added to the Chronicle of Kamir

                            With all those events happening at once, is it any surprise that Hazeem Al Bachrim and Carter Wellan, two high-profile players of the Game and charter meembers of Ravenwood International nearly fell to the blades of two dozen thugs twenty-four hours ago ? Hazeem Al Bachrim and his companion were minding their own business in Madras when they were assaulted in separate places of the city and fought like demons against the mortals ready to kill them.
                            The two immortals showed to their offenders that they didn't survive the violence of the Game for centuries without learning to fight against entire armies and managed to dispatch the two groups of mortals. After reuniting and investigating the sudden re-appearance of long-extinct thungs in the region of Madras, they made their way to New Delhi where lived Kamir, religous leader and former leader of the Thugee cult. Haresh and Carter stormed Kamir's place, fighting even more Thugees, but couldn't find the ancient immortal who has vanished without trace.
                            Ever since the mid-20th century, Kamir lived relatively in peace in India and didn't seek confrontation with those of his kind. So why gather an army and send them to members of Ravenwood ? Whose side is Kamir on ? The Thugee only served his own purposes and dedicated his life to Kali, goddess of war and death. Is he working for hte ancient adversary who is rumored to have started this war ?

                            By 1261 the weakening of the Normans had become manifest when Fineen MacCarthy (aka Maire of Waterford) defeated a Norman army at the Battle of Callann. There, she defeated Bertulf, Norman warrior and former dsiciple of the Kurgan. The war continued between the different lords and earls for about 100 years and the wars caused a great deal of destruction, especially around Dublin. In this chaotic situation, local Irish lords won back large amounts of land that their families had lost since the conquest and held them after the war was over.

                            The Black Death arrived in Ireland in 1348. Because most of the English and Norman inhabitants of Ireland lived in towns and villages, the plague hit them far harder than it did the native Irish, who lived in more dispersed rural
                            settlements.
                            By the end of the 15th century, central English authority in Ireland had all but disappeared. England's attentions were diverted by the Wars of the Roses. The Lordship of Ireland lay in the hands of the powerful Fitzgerald Earl of Kildare,
                            who dominated the country by means of military force and alliances with lords and clans around Ireland. The immortal leading armed resistance against the English occupation was Maire o Ciaragain, a bold three-hundred years old rebel who inspired Ayleen McClatchey and Annie Devlin to fight English oppression in the following centuries.

                            In 1541, Henry upgraded Ireland from a lordship to a full Kingdom. Henry was proclaimed King of Ireland at a meeting of the Irish Parliament that year. This was the first meeting of the Irish Parliament to be attended by the Gaelic Irish
                            chieftains as well as the Hiberno-Norman aristocracy. With the institutions of government in place, the next step was to extend the control of the English Kingdom of Ireland over all of its claimed territory.
                            In 1543, the Kurgan joined the English and embarked for Ireland where he hunted down Ciaragain but couldn’t find her; her Watcher lost her trace, she is presumed dead, killed by the Kurgan.

                            To : Watcher Tribunal

                            After a relentless hunt across India, Hazeem Al Bachrim, Carter Wellan, Sanjiv Gupta and Peter Gaicus found Kamir, hiding in a shrine on the outskirts of Tanjore, Southern India. Clay and his squad gave an armed response to the attacks perpetrated by Kamir; they cleaved, hacked and butchered their way across one hundred armed-to-the-teeth thugs before finally being able to capture Kamir. Keeping his usual serene demeanor, Kamir told the four immortals that Kali was his sole reason for living, serving her the only honor he asked and that when his master would finally rise to power after the final victory, he would siege by his side and rule Southern India forever, ridding it from both Muslim and Christian presence. The four warriors couldn't believe what they were hearing. All of this in the name of Kali ? Kamir finally offered a proper challenge to Sanjiv Gupta, his former teacher : 'let the blade decide who is in the right', he said.

                            Sanjiv Gupta's heart was broken : he had been Kamir's mentor and had taught the old immortal everything he knew about warfare and about the goddess Kali. But he was unable to teach him the ways of peace, thus knowing hte same failure with him than Darius knew with Grayson. Two great men separated by hatred and who could have acomplished so many great things together, that is is a tragedy for us Watchers to have recorded the final battle between these two men.
                            The battle was fierce and savage, Kamir demonstrating enormous skills of the blade and that he wasn't the servant of a goddess of war and death for nothing; it was as if Kali herself was reincarnated behind Kamir's wild eyes.
                            Sanjiv Gupta fought likea demon : the usually pacifical man wasn't afraid to let the mask slip and to show that he had been a warrior and leader of men 1700 years ago, a general who turned into a man of peace after one thousand years of warfare like Darius at the gates of Paris, centuries ago.
                            In the end, Gupta prevailed. Kamir adressed a mute prayer to Kali and closed his eyes. The Quickening was powerful enough to level Kamir's shrine while Hazeem Al Bachrim, Carter Wellan and Peter Gaicus watched from afar.


                            From the Records of the Tribunal

                            Sanjiv has been teaching history and philosophy at the University of Kashmir in Srinagar. He tries to impart on his students the neccessity to settle conflicts non-violently. An abrupt change from the warrior who has fought in many battles over the centuries. But after witnessing the development and the testing of the Bomb by the Indian government he became terrified that one day it would be used. His outspoken objection cost him his military career. Since then he has spent his time trying to teach another way to the young people of India.

                            According to his Watcher, there is hidden in his desk a list of all the pre-immortals of southern asia and middle-east region (and some from Western Europe) who are living unaware of the great destiny awaiting them.
                            He got this list after spending the last two decades travelling the world, visiting orphanages and looking for the unmistakable feeble presence of those who are destined to rise from the dead. He seeks them out and keeps them under check because he doesn't want the world to know the ravages caused by another Kurgan and hopes to guide those people to the greatness awaiting them.

Nuha has been cooking for nearly 800 years perfecting the recipes during that time. I have always had an interest in historical cooking and have had some fascinating conversations with her on the topic. Of course I know that she’s has first hand experience but its hard to really get into it because of who we are and time. We are putting in 12 hour days and the one day I have off I usually spend it sleeping.

                            Carter Wellan finally grew up from his teacher/mentor and lover’s shadow by the end of the 17th century after that unpleasant business with Saint-Germain and Rosamund of Kent. In 1656 Hazeem still called Carter ‘squire’ affectionnallly but Carter was tired of it, after all he was already six hundred years old and a seasoned immortal who could fight his own battles. Things heated quickely with the interference of Rosamund but eventually the two immortals set matters amiably and Hazeem finally decided to treat Carter as an equal, both immortals finally changing into a stronger couple, though the Moor can’t help but worry a little when Carter accepts a challenge. If Carter was to be killed in battle, it certainly would break the Moorish warrior and I feel that if Hazeem had to lose his head, Carter would also lose a part of his soul.

                            With all those events happening at once, is it any surprise that Hazeem Al Bachrim and Carter Wellan, two high-profile players of the Game and charter meembers of Ravenwood International nearly fell to the blades of two dozen thugs twenty-four hours ago ? Hazeem Al Bachrim and his companion were minding their own business in Madras when they were assaulted in separate places of the city and fought like demons against the mortals ready to kill them.
                            The two immortals showed to their offenders that they didn't survive the violence of the Game for centuries without learning to fight against entire armies and managed to dispatch the two groups of mortals. After reuniting and investigating the sudden re-appearance of long-extinct thungs in the region of Madras, they made their way to New Delhi where lived Kamir, religous leader and former leader of the Thugee cult.
                            Haresh and Carter stormed Kamir's place, fighting even more Thugees, but couldn't find the ancient immortal who has vanished without trace. Ever since the mid-20th century, Kamir lived relatively in peace in India and didn't seek confrontation with those of his kind. So why gather an army and send them to members of Ravenwood ?
                            Whose side is Kamir on ? The Thugee only served his own purposes and dedicated his life to Kali, goddess of war and death. Is he working for hte ancient adversary who is rumored to have started this war ?

                            • Chialuka Ifeanaso and his family have moved out of London for Bahia, Brazil, where West African communities and notably Yorubans brought sophisticated political and religious practices to Brazil.

                              For the six of them :

                              • Thanks for the latest chronicles, my friend. Once again, much appreciated!
                                Re: Carter Wellan; yeah, i think the actor from the series is a good choice, setting him apart from other Western Immortals.

                                I'll have the next SIS/Brimstone chapter up ASAP.

                                Cheers

                                • What does set Carter apart from other western Immortals ? Chris Martin was a blonde guy with leather and a cool attitude who wasmn't impressed by Richie's brattiness. We stated Carter was Moorish, and I receded on this move.
                                  So, do you want a Moorish Carter or a British Carter ? Your choice, though I like both renditions of Carter.

                                  And now please... I need 8 Brazilians for the Brazil database, I haven't enough of them : 38 on my files over a population of 112. That's clearly not enough with most of Brazil immortal population coming from the four corners of the world.. 1 Female out of 2.

                                  So far I covered all the Immortals whose names you posted : all have definite backgrounds and interesting stories to tell. I will write them when I feel ready.
                                  Cheers!

                                  • For me, Carter was different from other Western Immortals because he was a clearly Caucasian male in a centuries-long partnership with a Muslim Immortal immersed in the Middle Eastern world, and to top it all was blond haired, standing out from the Asian crowd as it were! Lol

                                    I'll have those Brazilian names for you soon, as well as the next SIS/Brimstone instalment.

                                      • Okay, here's the next instalment of the SIS/Brimstone saga:

                                        1037 - Ailef, Elfrida and Saegar are at Harold's side in London as he is recognised as King of England in his own right.
                                        On the advice of Ailef, Harold exiles Emma of Normandy to Bruges. Richeard sends Alfgar to Bruges to meet with Emma and gather information on Ailef.

                                        1039 - Elfrida leads an unsuccessful English invasion of Wales.

                                        1040 - 17 Mar: Harold Harefoot, King of England, dies.
                                        June: Ailef, Elfrida and Saegar are at Sandwich, Kent, as Harthacanute lands and becomes King of England.

                                        1041 - Elfrida puts down a rebellion in Worcester.
                                        Ailef conspires with Siward, Earl of Northumbria, to murder Eadwulf III of Bamburgh, thus incorporating Bernicia into Northumbria. Siward thus becomes an ally of Ailef and owes him a favour.
                                        Edward the Confessor returns from exile to become the heir of Harthacanute, and is approached by Ailef, who offers to help him attain the throne.

                                        TO BE CONTINUED

                                        Could you post the active and inactive Immortals of Western Asia, please.

                                        Cheers

                                        • I don't know how you get all those details out of of your head, Apollo1, good work!

                                          The followng Immortals are to be removed from the North African lists to be placed in the East African lists. The situation is a bit complicated for Sudanese Immortals between Sudan and South Sudan, I think best to have them all listed in Eastern Africa

                                          One the greatest slaver of Zanzibar, even mistaken for Tippu Tib, Omar is still a slave trader in Tripoli, an elderly immortal who always managed to stay safe on the immortal scene by tempting aggressive immortals with beautiful women as he did with Xavier St. Cloud in 1661. When immortals come after him, he has his bodyguards to rely on and to take the head for him. They are discreet about the Quickenings he takes, believing him to be a Djinn of old, those supersticious men. In the end there can be only one, the fable says, but Omar Fakroun knows he will be among the few who remain, sourrounded with beautiful slave girls.

                                          Subject : Report on Isra of Algiers, 1645

                                          In 1641, traveller Evliya Celebi took part in the famous Battle of Azak where it is presumed he met his first death. On his voyage back to Istanbul his ship encountered a fierce storm and was wrecked. Later he took part in the Battle of Crete where he met immortal Isra of Algiers, intense player of the Game, disguised as a man, who took Evliya under her wing and taught him about the Game.
                                          As well as devoting his life to travel, Evliya Çelebi was also a calligrapher, decorator, musician and a poet in his own way. He was very fond of all works of art and books whether miniatured or illuminated. A woman of art and an artesa herself, Isra helped Evliya develop his skills and recruited him, as well a two other immortals - Ahmet Dede and Nasredding Hoca - in looking for legendary immortal Methos who had been rumored to live in Ankara.
                                          We don't know what business Isra had with Methos, but she did comb the whole Turkish territory with Evliya, Nasreddin and Ahmet Dede in town, going so far as to torture immortal Lek Dukaghin for information.
                                          After one year of research, Isra felt Methos had gone for parts unknown and ended the search, vanishing too.
                                          Evliya Celebi was left in Istanbul to resume his life as a painter, which he still is today.

                                          Subject : Report on Isra of Algiers, 1645

                                          The Saint-Fools of Istanbul, folk-saints of Islam, were much the same as the Christian saint-fools of medieval Bysantium. The most famous of the saint-fools was Ahmet Dede who sat on a bridge and called himself Kasim Pasha, and greeted all those who passed; he could recognise men by name who he had never seen before and would salute them as if they were old acquaintances; he could instantly name men he had not seen for twenty or thirty years, and list the names of all their relations as well.
                                          Ahmet Dede's first appearance in the Chronicles dates back to 1645, when he was recruited by immortal woman, Isra of Algiers, who was searching for Methos in Turkey and was on a recruiting drive for hired help.
                                          She recruited Ahmet because of the man's uncanny ability to recognize anyone he knew and to relentlessly track any target down. She certainly must have been annoyed that Ahmet was such a complete fool who would barely listen to anything she said.
                                          It's certainly the promise of ten pounds of gold that made the hunt for Methos seems so attractive. Or maybe the promise he would keep his head if he helped Isra. After the search for Methos ended, Ahmet Dede was left to wander on his own, deciding to go underground and hides himself from his Watchers.
                                          He was seen again by Harry Houdini's Watcher by the end of the 20th Century, trying to persuade the magician that the Gathering was at hand, proposing him to hide with him. Houdini turned the offer down, but they kept seeing each other on different occasions.
                                          Recently, Ahmet started entertaining the children of Kabul with his mad witty banter as an hospital clown before moving to Oslo where he has been living as hospital clown, again, for the past seven years.

                                          Nasreddin Hoca the trickster, Nasreddin Hoca the thief, Nasredding Hoca the pre-immortal who was silly enough to make fun of an arrogant little princess in one of his jokes and who got hung for it. He was lucky he didn't get beheaded and that he never lost a hand for thievery. Anyway, the immortal who picked him up from his grave was cruising for an easy quickening but Nasreddin, although befuddled by his resurrection, quickly told him one of his best salacious jokes in the hope the nasty-looking immortal would laugh and maybe let him live.
                                          To the amazement of Khayr al-Din's Watcher, it worked ! Khayr began laughing uncontrollably, allowing Nasreddin to flee in the night without looking back.
                                          Nasreddin was seen the following century in Ankara, being recruited by immortal Isra of Algiers who was in search for the elusive immortal Methos. Methos had been rumored to live in Istanbul, half-a dozen immies were fixing to take his head, as well as Isra.
                                          Anyway, Nasreddin was still a successful con-man at this time, ruling an organisation of thieves and crooks in Ankara. He did his best to help Isra with whom he seemed to get on well. Since the woman was heard telling Nasreddin that she was "done with the lectures" and congratulated him for his swordmanship, we may conclude she really was his first teacher one century ago.
                                          After the search for Methos ended, Nasreddin resumed his career as a crook, staged a public death and became an artesan in Iran, as a silversmith and a jeweller in present days, hiding from the Game and Quickening-obsessed immortals.

                                          Student of Hazeem Al Bachrim and Carter Wellan

                                          Born a Bedu, Khalidah was a desert nomad when she knew her first death during the onslaught of a tribal war; she died by accident since the ancient Bedu followed a code of extreme chivalry and wouldn't voluntarily kill young children. Long-lived players of the Game Hazeem Al Bachrim and Carter Wellan had been living among her clan, when her accidental death occured. They had been caught in a sand storm and rescued by Khaidah's father. The leader of Khalidah's tribe welcomed them among his people and in return, Hazeem and Carter became the protectors of the little tribe.
                                          If it hadn't be for Hazeem and Carter, Khalidah wouldn't have survived the first century of her immortality, since a lonely young girl couldn't survive by her own means.Since the day she parted ways with her friends, Khalidah learnt many ways to survive the Game, to use her feminity to rob rich men's hearts and money. She also took a few heads, immortals who thought her to be an easy kill. Five years ago, Khalidah settled in Medina as a housemaid, worming her way in the heart and powerful money of her new master, fellow immortal Enver al'Ghazir. I guess Khalidah got tired of running and decided to choose an immortal ally for the time being. Yet, I'm afraid for her because I haven't seen the young girl in weeks and feel I have to put her on the missing roster of immortals status.

                                          Since 1965 Khalida al-Najiran has been playing the Game with passion, scourging the Western Asia immortals and going in any Islamized country of the world in search of the next Quickening, gaining in reputation and paralleling Safiyah Khan’s vigor though both women aren’t alike : Safiyah fights in the name of Allah, Khalida for power and strengh. Currently, Khalida is an international courrier, an occupation which allows her to travel constantly, though we wonder what she is doing in Tehran those days, it is hardly a welcomign place for women.

                                          If one woman understands the politics of the Western Asia and Palestine better than anyone its Ruth. Her current job in the Israeli government provides her with the opportunity to bring a historical perspective to the region. Although her stance is not popular with many of the hardliners, her practicality and common sense have made her invaluable to the Knesset. Having watched her home destroyed and terrorized by the Romans, makes her sympathetic to both sides. Her seemingly pacifist political stance has cause a major rift between her and Avram Mordecai. She has been distressed by her growing estrangement from Avram who she has been in love with for sometime. I hate to see politics destroy this couple.

                                          During the Second World War, many Estonians joined German Wehrmacht auxiliary units, as well as eventually contributing the volunteers and conscripts for the 20th Waffen Grenadier Division of the SS (1st Estonian) which fought against the Red Army. Tomi Mets was among the volunteers and sold his soul to the devil, never forgiving himself for the atrocities perpetrated by soliders of the Werchmacht. But he thought this was for the best, originally. Until he heard of the camps, saw the movie footages. He is a soldier, but his honor was lost during the horrors of World War II and ever sicne has been seeking a chance to make penance, on one battlefront or another, discovering that no war is clear-cut. Bosnia, Kosovo, Afghanistan, iraq and now Lebanon. He is running from his past, from himself and I suspect he is looking for a player of the Game who will win against him and finally rid him from his demons.

                                          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.

                                          Salman has been an animal tamer for most of his immortality, producing himself in circuses and sideshows, taming feral animals such as lions, tigers; he rode elephants in Cambodia, wild horses in the Llano, has been a snake charmer and is now a radio broadcaster in Colombia. When Immortals come after his head, he knows how to tame them too, sword in hand. This is a sweet-natured, calm Immortal who has a knack at establishing contacts with animals and compensates his lack of eyesight with his Immortal seventh sense. Truly a remarkable person.

                                          In 1855, Jacob Bar Shebron killed an Israelite woman whose identity remains unknown to us. The only two missing Israelites on our lists are Judith of Bethulia and Na'amah of Ramah. It is our home none of those women were killed by the Beta Israeli Ethiopian who was a hot-blooded character in the 19th century. Now a teacher, Jacob gives a message of peace to the young generations in the hope the conflicts between peoples of the Levant will be toned down by diplomacy and respect of other people’s beliefs. If he killed Na’amah then he may well have been impacted by her Quikcneing, in the same way Darius was changed by the Quickening of the Holy Man of Paris

                                          Subjet : Ishtar, Goddess of Love
                                          25 December 2000

                                          Dear Horace,

                                          As you and I have been suspecting for a long time, the immortal Anne-Marie Almenta currently living as a stripper in New-York is indeed far longest-lived than early researchers ever believed : would you believe that the mythological chief Goddess of the Assyrians and the Babylonians actually was an immortal ? Well, she was. And she still lives on this plane of existence.
                                          My team of researchers, and I have once more to commend investigator Stacy Rosenthal for her patient work of decyphering ancient texts, because she is the one who discovered the exerpt from an ancient immortal's journal -none other than legendary Emrys- who states that he met a fellow immortal named Ishtar who had killed another lover of her and felt sorry about it. Legend state also that Ishtar the goddess of love brought destruction in her wake, that no man could see her dance or make love to her and live to tell the tale. In that journal was also an elaborated description of Ishtar, described as "a jewel of a woman, a person whose beauty radiated like the sunshine".
                                          Well, this always was the description of Anne-Marie. All this, and the fact that one Adam Pierson, best known as Methos, was seen in her company drinking wine in Greenchwich Village (NY).
                                          Ishtar's Watcher, Kristin Embers, picked up parts of a conversation between them that went like this :

                                          "....three thousand years ago ... the city of Eridu in the
                                          springtime .... when you took Tiamat's head, Methos, and then you instructed the bundle of fear I was...can't believe you and I lived that long...how's Pharamond, this days, is he stil..."

                                          Kristin couldn't pick up more since Methos and Ishtar suddenly left the place in a hurry and kinda "lost" her. A real shame. Anyway, it shows that Ishtar, although adored by the Assyrians and the Babylonians, was in fact a Mesopotamian.

                                          So, dear Horace, what do you think of this ?

                                          If I didn't manage to convince you that an immortal as old as Methos lives in your vicinity, know this : wonderful comic writer Neil Gaiman, best known for his comic book series "The Sandman", depicted in his books a pantheon of immortals, including one Ishtar. Formely known as a godddess of love. I can't wait to read your reaction.

                                          Exultant,
                                          Stanley.

                                            Stacy Goldhawk tried to explain to her friend Tomi Mets that were were Immortals out there with no cosncience, who comitted much worse crimes againtt mortalkind in hundreds of years of immortality and that an Immortal like him who showed remorse for past actions couldn’t be a bad man, not could he be accounted for every atrocities recorded in the history of World War II She herself was oen of the survivors of one of the largest genocides in makind history but she kept on livign and didn’t come after European immortals for the sake of revenge. I have an inkling she worries about her friend, she fears he might do something stupid, like challenge the wrong Immortal. Tomi Mets is a depressed man, so she keeps watch on him through skype and Facebook connections. Stacy is a good psychanalist but she wishes Sean Burns was still alive, this was a remarkable Immortal with a knack at curing Immortals from their neurotic obsessions.

                                            It is a good thng that America isn’t the only place to hold a Special Victims Unit in tis police departems, so does Iraq with the Lionnesses group dedicated to hunting and punishing perpetrators of violent croimes agaisnt women and children. Tamara Kahramabn is a good cop, a good listener, she is amogn the best officers of the Lionnesss brigade and while she’s proven herself agaisnt agents of ISIL, she is the best at purhing the Immortal scene from its violent elements surch as wifebeaters, serial rapists and pedophiles.

                                            Damon Case is now dead. After nearly one thousand years spent playing the Game, living like a walking killing machine, choosing no life other than serving God and taking heads, the grandmaster of headhunting targeted the immortal he should never have targeted. Of all the immortals living in Iran, Sulieman al-Rashid was an immortal whose psyche had been erased to be replaced with the mind and soul of Naseeran Kamal, an ancient sorcerer who got the last laugh when al-Rashid killed him ten years ago and survived in the body of the man who killed him. When Damon Case came after him, Kamal warned the ancient monk that he'd become even stronger if he were to lose the battle, but Case didn't listen. And when the Englishman took the Quickening, he screamed as if the grounds had opened beneath his feet and he was suddenly contemplating the darkness that lies wthing his own heart. How did he feel during his last minutess of life, when the Quickening of Naseeran Kamal destroyed his psyche, ending his life ? Did he feel betrayed, somehow, by the God he was sworn to serve ?
                                            And when words finally reach Henry of Kent's ears in Los Angeles that his ennemy still lives in some way, his mind replaced with the mind of an evil immortal who is not an active player of the Game, how will he react ? Will he feel relief that he Case is no longer among us, or anger to have been cheated out of his revenge ? Maybe regret ? Regret that the greatest headhunter he had ever had to hunt in one thousand years died by the hand of a conniving sorcerer who very nature is a twist of the laws of immortals nature ? With Case's death, the immortals of Western Asiaern countries may have some peace, for a time. And the Game goes on.

                                            The beginning of the First Persian Gulf War saw the death of an immortal (Iraj Quazai) and the activation of another one, on the opposite side : Iraqi soldier Hossein Shakra became immortal and was found by Seleim Ubadah who trained him in the ways of immortality. For the six following years, Hossein took part in the Persian War as spy and saboteur and joined the Iraqi intelligence service in the aftermath of the war; in 1991 he was documenting Chiites activities when their uprising suddenly took place, he was uncovered as a spy, tortured for hours and then shot to death. His body was never recovered, but he re-appaered during the First Gulf War in 1991.

                                                There have been allegations that Valdinei is a wife –beater, but nothing can be proven since Ana Flavia’s regenerative powers heals her physical wounds quickly. But not her psychological wounds. I wonder why she stays with him but I shouldn’t be surprised : they have been together for sixty years now, and she cannot imagine herself without him.Sixty years of physical and psychological abuse, that's a lot. I wonder when she will finally find the strenght to pick her sword and take his head, because I have stopped counting the times he gave her a temporary death in all the time they have been together.

                                                Personally I wish Fernao Gonçalves took out Anna’s husband last year durign the Game because now she would be a freed woman. But would that be a service to her? She needs to see her husband as the violent man that he is and to decide to leave him once and for all. Not that it worked greatly for Grace Chandel when she left Carlo Sendaro, he harassed her for one hundred and fifty years before she was finally forced to kill him for good in 1992.
                                                Will Anna find that kind of strenght in herself ? So far she has been living a life of fantasy as model, traveller and all manners of occupations befitting her nature of living head in clouds, with ether Clara Dore or her abusive husband to stand by her but that cannot be good for her. She knows it and beneath that smling face on tv I see all the pain in the world, the endless tears that ran for the last six decades. That poor woman. This is not a way to spend one’s Immortality.

                                                Next chapter of Anna Flavia Salvador's chronicle

                                                Of late, Anna Flavia was involved in charity, helping the disinfranchised teen mothers of Sao Paulo, teaching them birth control, planned parenthood, how to use condoms and contraceptives so they would have a chance at a better life. Ann Flavia's good heart always got her to take a stand in favor of those in need in sixty years of Immortal life, closely watched over by her jealous, violent husband.She made the acquaintance of two younger Immortals, a couple, former gangbangers in one of the most violent streets gangs of Brazil, Primeiro Comando Da Capital, who had themselves changed over the last decades and turned their way from the violence that took out most of their mortal friends and ennemies.

                                                Two street youths, Immortals, born in a violent environment, made immortal through violence, who had a change of heart in 2012 during the "Immortals War" which killed so many Immortals. They realised the endless violence
                                                couldn't go on forever and that to change the Immortal scene, they had to change the mortal scene. And what better way to do so than educating mortal youth of Sao Paulo. Rodriguo is specialized in taking out kids out of the streets before they find their 'family' with gangs as he did and Paula works with young teenaged girls in search for first sexual experiments, teaching them to bid their time, wait a few years more to grow and mature.And as far as the Game is concerned, they are practical about it and train constantly.

                                                This year they met Anna Flavia and agreed to work with her charity organisation, feeling in the older woman a kindred spirit, but taking an instant dislike to her husband. A man who doesn't respect his woman isn't man at all, they said to Anna when she confided in Paula the treatment she endured. Anna fell instantly in love with a fourteen years old orphan girl, six months pregnant, named Carlita Soares, and her sense of protectiveness grew to a point when she felt she could adopt her. Not to the liking of Valdinei who decided he had enough of Paula and Rodriguo interfering in his life. He told so to Anna and when he threatened the life of Carlita, Anna's blood boiled to a point of no return : for sixty years she stood by an abusive husband and she felt she had enough. He was now threatening a girl she grew to love and who agreed to stay with her for the sake of her child, he threatened her chance at true hapiness, at being a mother to Carlita and a grand-mother to her child.

                                                This, she couldn't accept and while she was never recorded as a Game-agressive person, this was a woman who had received good training from her teacher, Clara Dore. Anna told bitter, angry words to her husband and drew her sword. Pinto couldn't believe his wife dared challenge him and that was his weakness : disbelief that an Immortal woman could prove deadlier than her male counterpart in the Game. Many, many Immortal men have made that mistake in the past. If half of surviving Immortals are women it is for a reason. They are clever, practical, sensible and use whatever advantages they can to survive. Pinto's brute strenght and anger were his weapons, Anna Flavia used her speed,her agility and concentrated on the love she felt for Carlita to win. And win she did !

                                                She went home with a good Quickening and settled in Sao Paulo with Carlita. Both women are expectant mother and grand-mother for March 2018 with two good friends in the Game.

                                                • Good job, my friend, i loved the story of Anna Flavia Salvador and the way she turned against her abusive husband. A modern tale in the Immortal story. Great work.

                                                  Here's the next chapter in the SIS/Brimstone saga:

                                                  1042 - 8 June: Harthacanute dies at a feast, poisoned by Elfrida on the orders of Ailef, and is succeeded by his half-brother Edward the Confessor as King of England.

                                                  1043 - 3 April: Ailef, Elfrida and Saegar attend the coronation of Edward the Confessor at Winchester Cathedral.

                                                  1047 - 10 August: Battle of Val-es-Dunes; Richeard and Alfgar fight with William, Duke of Normandy and King Henry I of France as they secure control of Normandy by defeating rebel Norman barons at Caen.

                                                  1048 - Elfrida and her Valkyries help drive off the last Viking raid on England. The unsuccessful raiders flee to Flanders.
                                                  King Edward, at the urging of Ailef, goes to war against Flanders, blockading the English Channel with a fleet based at Sandwich.

                                                  1050 - The first dispute begins between Ailef and Elfrida over who they should support on the throne of England. Ailef continues to back Edward, but Elfrida has begun a relationship with the 22-year-old Harold Godwinson, son of Godwin, Earl of Wessex, who she sees as the future King and more dependable than Edward.

                                                  TO BE CONTINUED

                                                  • Now that's really a complete chronicle! Exactly the kind of stuff actual historian Watchers would do. My congratulations.
                                                    Did you find the name of that student of Bethany Clarke ? The French one. I remember her clearly, but not her name.

                                                    Cheers!
