  • 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.

        Background

        Fought and beheaded Driss el-Gharrouj

        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 ?

        Background
        Original cultural affiliation : Irish
        Born : 1151; Waterford, Ireland
        First death : 1171, Murdered by English soldiers
        during takeover of Ireland by Henry II of England
        First teacher : Damian Thackarey
        Known past associates : Ailell of Kells, Angus

        First recorded sighting : 1171, Waterford. Student
        of Thackaray

        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
        Date : 11.02.2011

        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.

        Opening and running a restauraunt in New York City isn’t easy. Many eateries close down within a year. But Nuha’s is here to stay, word of mouth has got people to try us out but its the ambiance and cuisine that keeps them coming. 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.

        • 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.

          • 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.

                    • 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

                      Maltese island of Gozo, sold a couple of women to
                      Xavier St. Cloud

                      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.

                      From : Stanley Maguire (Head Research, Western Asia)
                      To : Adam Pierson (Research, Methos Chronicle)
                      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.

                      Subject : Report on Isra of Algiers, 1645

                      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.

                            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.

                            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.

                              • 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!

                                • 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

                                      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.

                                      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?

                                            Cheers

                                                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.

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.

                                                    Witnessed battle of Nadyenka Chemerkin against
                                                    Sidor Tadui, unaware of her own immortality, taken

                                                    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"

                                                    From Russian folklore, 'Vasilisa, the priest's daughter'

                                                    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.

                                                    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.
