  • Still going through my old chronicles, my friend, and it's taking awhile to sort them all out, so haven't found that Immortal you're looking for yet. When i find it, you'll be the first to know! Lol

    Once i'm updated with all the currently active and inactive Immortals which you're so kindly helping me with, i'll be trying to sort out all the deceased Immortals and updating those.

    The next chapter of the SIS/Brimstone saga:

    1051 - Richeard and Alfgar help William of Normandy counter the ambitions of Geoffrey Martel, the Count of Anjou, when he occupies the county of Maine. Together with King Henry of France, they succeed in driving Geoffrey from the county, and in the process, William is able to secure the strategically important Belleme family strongholds at Alencon and Domfort.
    September: Godwin, Earl of Wessex, is exiled from England by King Edward the Confessor, for refusing to take action against the townspeople of Dover. Ailef suspects Elfrida had a hand in Godwin's actions and confronts her outside London. She accuses him of following a weak king and of losing his touch, but Ailef asserts his authority and threatens to have her arrested and exiled. Saegar and armed soldiers arrive to back up Ailef, but Elfrida's Valkyries have also accompanied their mistress, and a stalemate ensues. Both Ailef and Elfrida agree an uneasy truce, but a century of trust between the two is broken. The future White King and Black Queen of Brimstone/Hellfire Club would from this moment on work together only for mutual gain rather than the trust and friendship they once shared.

    TO BE CONTINUED

    Could you post the active and inactive Immortals of Central and Eastern Europe, please.

    Cheers

    • More good chronology. IMO you ought to show the presence of Immortals who existed in the time periods you describe and the interactions they had with the Hellfire Club.

      Cheers!

      • You're right about the presence of other Immortals during the SIS/Brimstone conflict, so I've created a couple of hopefully interesting chronicles, which i hope you'll help me flesh out a bit:

        Caedela of Haestinges

        Most recent base of operations: Dover, Kingdom
        of England
        Occupation: Rebel leader
        Prior occupations: Peasant farmer, blacksmith
        Roster of Immortals Status: Deceased
        Date: September 1051
        Place: Dover
        Victor: Saegar Lightfingers, aka Sampson
        Brass
        Watcher: Dremca of Dover.

        Original cultural affiliation: Saxon
        Born: 526, Kingdom of Haestinges
        First death: 557, blacksmith murdered by a wealthy
        client for failing to deliver a sword on time
        First teacher: (any ideas?)

        For six years Caedela was one of the most prominent leaders of organised resistance in Dover, protesting the rule of Edward the Confessor and his extortionate taxes. Always a supporter of the common man, Caedela had nearly five centuries as a lone outlaw fighting the nobility on behalf of the peasantry, so it was no surprise when he led a violent clash between the people of Dover and the visiting Eustace II, Count of Boulogne. After Godwin, Earl of Wessex, refused to punish the people of Dover, Immortal schemer Ailef of Deira, an adviser to Edward, sent his hatchet man, fellow Immortal Saegar Lightfingers, and a small band of trained thugs to root out the rebels and kill them. Sixteen men and women, the leaders of the resistance, were brutally murdered by Saegar and his henchmen. Caedela challenged his fellow Immortal to a private duel, as is the Immortal way, but Saegar, as is his wont, set his thugs upon Caedela first, weakening him. Still, Caedela killed five of his attackers but was so badly battered and wounded, that it was easy for Saegar to inflict a fatal blow. After sending his men away to mop up any stragglers, Saegar dragged Caedela into the woods and struck off his head. The act of the coward that he is.

        Dremca of Dover, 1051

        Huidemar of Avranches

        Most recent base of operations: Caen,
        Normandy
        Occupation: Captain in the army of Guy of
        Brionne, son of Reginald I, Count of Burgundy
        Prior occupations: Mercenary sword, soldier
        Roster of Immortals Status: Deceased
        Date: 10 August 1047
        Place: Battle of Val-es-Dunes, near Caen
        Victor: Richeard of Mercia
        Watcher: Research, Medieval Europe

        Original cultural affiliation: Gallic
        Born: 461, Kingdom of Soissons, Western
        Roman Empire
        First death: 485; soldier in town militia killed in
        Saxon raid
        First teacher: (any ideas?)

        Huidemar of Avranches was a Norman Immortal who fought by the side of the rebel Norman barons led by Guy of Brionne against the forces of William of Normandy. A life-long soldier, he spent his immortality roaming from one battlefield to another usually fighting for whoever paid him the most. At the Battle of Val-es-Dunes, he came up against Saxon Immortal Richeard of Mercia, future leader of the SIS. They fought a private duel after the battle in the nearby present-day town of Canteville and Huidemar proved no match for the wily Richeard, even at this time one of the most skilled swordsmen in the Immortal community.

            • Thanks for completing the bios, my friend, great work. And yes, i'm going to go back and create some chronicles for the time period I've done so far, which i'll get you to help me complete. I need some Immortal victims for Aldrich and Evangeline! Lol

              Do you have the active and inactive Immortals of Central and Eastern Europe?

                Can you find those Indian names ? Unless you are too busy with the Hellfire Club timeline ;-)

                  Beathan of Ce

                  Most recent base of operations: Northumbria
                  Occupation: Warrior
                  Prior occupations: Ditto
                  Roster of Immortals Status: Deceased
                  Date: 710
                  Place: Northumbria
                  Victor: Ailef of Deira, aka Aldrich Monk
                  Watcher: Research, Immortals of the British Isles

                  Original cultural affiliation: Pict
                  Born: 236, Kingdom of Ce, Scotland
                  First death: 269; killed in tribal warfare
                  First teacher: Undetermined

                  One of the earliest Pictish Immortals on record, somewhat of a legend in Dark Ages Scotland as a formidable warrior, invincible in battle, often described as "bathed in the blood of his foes", though in hindsight, this was probably his own blood from the many wounds he suffered in battle. During the Pict invasion of Northumbria in 710, he fought Ailef of Deira, who along with Richeard of Mercia, was fighting with the Northumbrians. Beathan is most notable as the first recorded kill of the infamous Aldrich Monk.

                  Any chance you could fill in the blanks?

                      Who would have thought Milos Arczynski the lover of mortal woman was a player of the Game after all. He has been conclusively identified behind the deaths of at least three Immortal women in the last decades and a dozen more in the previous five centuries of his immortality. Watcher research can lead us in surprising discoveries sometimes. The women were identified as Florica Marga, Cecelia Holtzmann and Zizi Szabo, all killed during lecture tours of Professor Arczysnki at the universities located in cities where those women lived. but we have an inkling there are more killed over the centuries.

                      To the outside world, Alex Raven presents a pretty intimidating front. She's a small ball of leather-clad attitude with a wicked right hook and an even more wicked blade. If you project a strong enough front, no one tries to get close to you, and you don't get hurt, physically or emotionally. Or at least that's the theory.
                      It would be easy to think that's all there is to Alex, but to understand what she's really like, you need to watch and understand Max. Max Leiner is a good man, one of the best I've ever seen, and a wise one, wiser in some ways than many Immortals ten times his age. And what Max is today is a product of what he was taught and shown, first by his father, and then by Alex. Max is their child as much as any child is the product of their biological parents -- Max is the best of David and Alex in combination. Max loves Alex unconditionally, not only because she mothered him, not only because she saved his life, but because he can see the good shining within her, he knows what she's really like. Max trusts Alex not only with his own life, but with the lives and memories of his people. To Max, Alex is a good, righteous, and caring person, and that's a good enough recommendation for me.

                      Arminius Vambery once hunted the Prairie Witch in America, an Immortal passing herself as a witch on her broom who robbed and killed her way across most of the Midwestern states in the 1870's and 1880’s with Matthew McCormick and Mako hot on her trails. She disappeared in 1892 and was thought killed by eaither Mako or MacCormick but resurfaced in 1923, her reputation surpassing even the shenigans of Corey Raines and Amanda, the infamous duo of bank robbers. Corey and Amanda never killed anyone but the Prairie Witch did. Imagine, a gun-toting Immortal, sword in hand ,sitting on her broom ! Which has to be taken metaphorically : her broom was her faithful horse in the 1880’s, then a Ford Model-T in the 1920 ‘s right thought the early 1930’s when finally Arminius caught to her and dispatched the so-called witch.

                      Rojek's last quarry was Ionel Oltenau in Romania . I wonder what he has accomplished by taking his head. Did he enjoy his Quickening ? I cannot help but notice that most players of the Game are either delusional, psychotic or self-righteous champions of good vs evil (aren't you, Mister MacLeod), bent on challenging and killing immortals until only one remains; I know, it is the point of the Game, but look at it this way : of the five hundred plus immortals living on Earth presently, 88% are living AWAY from the Game : they don't take challenges, and avoid each others, or sometimes befriend each others, but the point is : they don't spend their time taking heads.
                      Most of the so-called "k'immies" who were active during the nineties are now dead, the world is a much better place. But still, a nice guy like Oltenau died and it's a painful reminder that the Game is still there, after all.

                      A daughter of a priest wore men's clothing, rode horses, and could fire a gun. One day the king saw this "young man", but his servants insisted that the "young man" was in fact a girl. The king did not believe the servants; he wrote to the priest asking him if his "son" could have dinner with him. The priest sent his daughter to the king’s home. Before she arrived, the king sought advice from the witch regarding the true identity of the "young man". The witch advised the king to do many different things to test if Vasilisa is a girl or not, such as place an embroidery frame and a gun positioned on a wall and to see which object she will notice first. If she is a girl she will notice the frame first, and vice-versa. The "young man" passed every test, but the king remained doubtful. The king tries several times to find the true identity, but on the last time the king asked the "young man" to take a bath with him, and the "young man" agreed. While the king undressed, the "young man" undressed, bathed quickly and fled, leaving a note for the king saying

                      "Ah King Barkhat, raven that you are, you could not surprise the falcon in the garden! For I am not Vasily Vasilyevna, but Vasilisa Vasilyevna"

                      The Novgorod Republic, together with Pskov retained some degree of autonomy during the time of the Mongol invasion of mid-13th century and were largely spared the atrocities that affected the rest of the
                      country. Led by Prince Alexander Nevsky, Novgorodians repelled the invading Swedes in the Battle of
                      the Neva in 1240, as well as the Germanic crusaders in the Battle of the Ice in 1242, breaking their attempts to colonize the Northern Rus'.
                      From 1232 to 1242, Father Garnoff settled in Novgorod where he administered the spiritual needs of the locals, playing the Game at one point, when he challenged immortal woman Vasilisa Vasilyevna who joined the army of Pince Nevsky against the Swedes; during the battle, Garnoff's Watcher was killed, his opponent went missing and was thought killed. Vasilisa didn't re-aappear in the Watcher chronicles before this year's Immortals War.

                      The Greek Military Junta (1967 - 1974) was a misguided attempt from Deoneces and Kyra of Sparta to bring democracry to their homeland and prevent it from falling in the clutches of the Communisits. Cleophon of Athens advised against if, feeling that the best ideas spawn disasters. Deoneces didn't listen and would bear the responsabilities of his actions for the rest of his life.
                      On 21 April 1967, just weeks before scheduled elections, a group of right-wing army officers led by Brigadier General Stylianos Pattakos and Colonels George Papadopoulos and Nikolaos Makarezos, gathered by Deoneces and Kyra, seized power in a coup d'etat. The colonels were able to seize power quickly by using elements of surprise and confusion. Pattakos was the commander of the Armour Training Centre and a disciple of Deoneces.

                      U.S. critics of the coup criticised the Johnson Administration for providing aid to a "military regime of collaborators and Nazi sympathisers." Phillips Talbot, the U.S. ambassador in Athens, disapproved of the coup, complaining that it represented "a rape of democracy", to which Jack Maury, the CIA station chief in Athens, answered, "How can you rape a whore?" Papadopoulos' junta attempted to re-engineer the Greek political landscape by coup. As a matter of fact, Deoneces for support from the Combined Immortals of America, a group of immortals who elevated Innterferences With Tragic to an art form in their centuries of meddling with American history.

                      The colonels preferred to call the coup a "revolution to save the nation". Their official justification was that a "communist conspiracy" had infiltrated Greece's bureaucracy, academia, press, and military, to such an extent that drastic action was needed to protect the country from communist takeover. Thus, the defining characteristic of the Junta was its staunch anti-communism. The immediate consequences of the coup were establishment of military courts, suppression of civil liberties and dissolution of political parties. Everything Deoneces and Kyra hated. It is the first time that Deoneces and Kyra actually separated, in dispute over how to handle the whole matter, now that's it was going sour before their eyes.

                      Greece was internationally accused of violating human rights, with 6,188 suspected communists and political opponents imprisoned or exiled to remote Greek islands. Among them, Artur Drakov, master manipulator whom Deoneces felt he was the man responsible for manipulating the men he had been mentoring. Kyra saw through his dellusion, in time to save Artur Drakov.
                      Under the junta, torture became a deliberate practice carried out both by the Security Police and the Greek Military Police. Immediately thereafter, Kyra and Deoneces manipulated the colonels, turning them against each others, trying to repair the catastrophe they had triggered. The collapse of the junta both ideologically and politically was triggered by a series of events which unfolded soon after Papadopoulos' attempt at liberalisation, with ideological collapse preceding its eventual political collapse. During and following this ill-fated process the internal political strains of the junta came to the fore and pitted the junta factions against each other, thus destroying the seemingly monolithic cohesion of the dictatorship.

                      Eventually, the Junta collapsed and democracy was restored. Shaken, Deoneces retired from mortal affairs and didn't speak with the angry Kyrauntil they reconciled during their hut for the Eternal Swords of Allah in 1990.

She finally decided to play the Game for good and discovered she had quite a talent with swords, cutlasses and kitchen knives. Took out six immortals, including three who came after her. She looks like a mere slip of a girl, but is a wicked lady when things get pushy. However, she cannot resist mature men and good-looking Immortals which may prove to be her downfall after all.

                      Known past associates : Swenja Baatz, Lootje De
                      Groot, Amanda, Viktor Hansen, Andrew Franklin
                      First recorded sighting :1746; the road from
                      Ipswich to Bedford. Tried to rob Swenja and Lootje
                      who laughed, killed him and then mentored him

                      In 1746, Swenja Baatz and Lootje De Groot were travelling from Ipswich, fresh from having kiled Irishman Ethan Callaghan and were going on with their business as highwaywomen. On the road, while travelling to Bedford, they had the surprise to meet a pre-immortal highwayman who tried to rob them from their money and other valuables; the two women felt the pre-immortal presence from Markham and looked at him with a knowing smilebefore Swenja drew her pistol and shot him in the heart. When Markham came back from the dead, he had his would-be victims by his side who explained to him exactly why he wasn’t dead; with his new friends’ teachings, he discovered the world was his playgound and that he could be anything he ever dreamt of. The trio then spent two years robbing the riches,giving only to themsevles before Swenja decided to end their little menage à trois and to leave for Cornwall; they ended their relationship with Markham by suggestign he makes the most of his immortality... and he did, constantly living on the fringes of the Law, evading the attentions of the like of Charles Mako or Matthew of Salisbury, associating himself with immortals such as Viktor Hansen or Amanda.

                      From the Chronicle of Derek Markham :

                      My father told me what kind of lousy scum I was going to Watch, he didn't prepare me to encounter such a despicable character : egocentric, cowardly, cunning, greedy, obsessed with women and especially with the ancient lady Who made the mistake of associating herself with him. Amanda should have known better, according to what Watcher Archives sent me about her. The two associates were involved in some kidnapping racked, targeting children of London's upper society. This time, the game turned sour with the kidnapped child accidentally killed by Markham. Amanda angrily turned on him and threatened to feed him to the policemen only to feel Markham's sword to her throat.
                      Amanda being the only witness of Markham's crimes, he offered her a choice : marry him or die. A wife cannot testify against her husband on court, he reasoned. Amanda, not too good with a sword, agreed and the "lovebirds" were married by a defroqued priest in the hour. But Amanda, amoral thief and loving to mortals, sold her husband to the constable winning the gratitude of a family of mortals and the undying hatred of her ex-husband.

                        IMMORTALS OF MOTHER RUSSIA (BMR)

                        Immortals of Mother Russia (Byessmyertniye Matyere Rosseya) or BMR is an organisation of immortals dedicatied to protect their homeland from external
                        and internal threats. They have made rabid ennemies over the centuries and have adapted to political changes over times, from Ivan the Terrible-era to the fall of the Communism. Their goal is to preserve the traditions and customs of their great nation, however great the cost. They are a merciless team, dubbbing themselves 'Winter Soldier' after the devastating climate that utterly destroyed the armies of Napoleon in 1812 and of Adolf Hitler during WWII.

                        Although devoted soldiers of their homeland and proficient players of the Game - Vera Dionisy is even more dangerous than Barkhov himself, the small group isn't made of fanatics : Barkhov and his colleagues have seen empires rise and fall in four hundred years (eight hundred in the case of Sadko) and are aware that the ennemies of yesterday will be the allies of tomorrow.

                        After having fought side by side with the England-faring SIS and the America-born CIA during WWII, they kept their distance during the Cold War, but have now resumed their relationship with Richeard of Mercia and Thomas Morehead's teams. They are also close allies of the Ravenwood group but keep themselves distant from Immortal Maiden and the China Force.

                        The original BMR was made up of the Bogatyris, legendary warriors Tyros of Babylon, Illya Muromets, Dobrynya Nikitich and Alyosha Popovich who were active from the
                        10th century to late 15th century when they were killed by the fearsome Kurgan.
                        Fortunately for mother Russia, the spirit of the BMR didn't die, the flame has been kept by Dimitri Barkhov and his team of four immortals : Kir Bulchyev, Vasily Dionisy, Vera Dionisy and Sadko, surviving member of the original BMR
                        who survived an encounter with the Kurgan using trickery.

                        When Barkhov co-founded the new BMR with Kir Bulchyev and the Dionisy husband-and-wife team, he started looking for a fourth associate and wxent in search of Sadko, independent agent of the Bogatyris. When he found Sadko, he gave him the choice between losing his head for allowing the Kurgan to kill the Bogatyris or join the team he was creating. Over the centuries, Sadko has paid his debt to the memory of his departed friends and is now a pillar of Russia's immortal front.

                        After WWII, when Eastern countries fell under the control of the newly-born Soviet Union, the BMR had no choice but to infiltrate the Party, biding their time, waiting for opportunities to curb the regimen's violent tendencies.
                        Through political manipulations and assassinations, they suceeded over time and recruited agents from satellite countries of the Eastern block. When Anton Vanko, his prize student and former colonel of Russia imperial army turned rogue after the disintegration of the USSR, he allowed Maude de Valerie the necessary mandate to terminate Vanko. The fact that he welcomed a member of the Ravenwood organisation in his country speaks volume about his eagerness to create a solid relationship with Westerner immortals.

                        Kuchinka is currently in charge of security at the Minsk Nuclear Facility. He was put in charge after the higher ups discovered a discrepancy in the inventory. He has been going through the staff with an intensive focus that can be quite unnerving. But it is not as unnerving as knowing that components to make a nuclear device are unaccounted for.
                        He has always been an honorable player in the Game and when waging war, he never liked the idea of Weapons of Mass Destruction. So he is quite motivated personally and professionally to find out where they have gone.
                        He returned to Russia in 1994 after the collapse of the communist regime, something he had been hoping for since the murder of the czar Nicholas and the Russian royal family in 1917. I think it had been his hope to see the return of the Romanov’s to power.

                        Cherson by Vladimir of Kiev

                        Sometimes I wonder how so many immortal women manage to survive the Game, the agressions from men, the wars, the revolutions and the gulags in Stalinist Russia. Maria Rostov is an exeptional woman in a community of exeptional beings with good weapons, aside from her Tatar saber : her strenght, her determination, her will to live, to survive. She is a strong woman, indeed, molded that way by her teacher, Maria Zhuganova, herself a student of the Kurgan. Zhuganova is dead, but she lives through Maria Rostov.
                        Maria has been doing remarkable progress in cellular research and in the study of Quickenings, of immortals regeneration. I think she want to help mankind that way: by trying to impart humanity with the gift of fast -healing, so that no one has to suffer from any disease anymore. My belief is that some gifts aren't fit for humanity, but Maria won't consider my point of view. She is really determined.

                          A Cornish patriot who died his First Death in battle against the Saxons and continued to be called upon to defend his people from the Anglo-Saxons, despite some time spent as a fisherman. His last battle was against the Kingdom of Wessex in 722, and although he lost his head to the Saxon Immortal Richeard of Mercia, his people successfully repelled the invasion of their territory.

                          of general political and military disorder following the
                          death of Caliph Muawiyah I
                          First teacher: Faiz Raboud

                          Faiz and Musaed were a pair of Immortals encountered by Richeard of Mercia and Ailef of Deira during their exile in Byzantium when they fought for Leo III against the Umayyad Arabs. Research confirms that Faiz found Musaed after the merchant trader had been killed by Alid rebels during the Second Fitna. He trained him in swordsmanship and the two fought many battles together across the Arab world until their fateful encounter with the two Saxon Immortals at the Battle of Akroinon.

                            • Thanks, my friend, for completing those chronicles, your help is much appreciated!

                              I have three more for you:

                              From the Chronicle of the Hellfire Club:

                              Thanks to new information provided by Richeard of Mercia, leader of the SIS, we are finally able to close the chronicles of three Immortals, all women, whose decapitated bodies were found in the 8th century but no Immortal was ever credited with their deaths. In fact, for centuries we suspected they were killed by three different Immortals who were operating in or around Saxony at the time. Now though, we can confirm that their killer is none other than Aldrich Monk, who at the time was known by his birth name Ailef of Deira. According to Richeard, Aldrich was already exhibiting misogynistic tendencies and, tying in with what we know about his antagonistic relationship with the Club's Black Queen Evangeline Black, and Richeard's assertion that Aldrich would have seen those Immortals as easy Quickenings, we are confident Monk is their killer.

                              Folgarda of Aachen

                                    • Great chronicles as usual, my friend. More Immortals to add to the active/inactive list. It seems more survived the Immortals War than originally thought! Lol

                                      After Ailef of Deira, aka Aldrich Monk, broke his friendship with Richeard of Mercia and left England for Denmark, he sought to offer his services to the Viking King Horik I. But these things are never easy when it comes to the Norsemen. To prove he was worthy enough to be useful to Horik, Aldrich was made to fight the king's champion, the huge and imposing Immortal Asbjorn Blacktooth. But the smaller and faster Aldrich outfought Asbjorn, dancing around him like a mongoose and brought him to his knees. The lightning show after Aldrich took Asbjorn's head, convinced Horik to accept the offer of the Saxon Immortal.

                                        • Just an update, my friend. Christmas holidays and a faulty PC have prevented me posting for a little while, but with any luck everything should be hunky dory in the next week (fingers crossed!)

                                                • I decided to give a little polish to the Immortals War story so you know who dies, and who doesn't, with dates adjustements.
