    Roster of Immortals Status : Missing
    Date : 1590 Repelling slavers raid led by Immortal
    Farid al’Zafir
    Place : Mt. Kilidmandjaro
    Victor : N.A

    In 1490 Kashta of Nubia sought a legendary clan of Immortal living near Mount Kilimandjaro who were rumored to have been mentored by his teacher, Sudala. The Son of Sudala sought the brothers and sisters he yearned for and met up with the Mengi familymade of two men, two women and two children living in harmony with their natural habitat as hunter-gatherers and sometimes going at war agaisnt neighboring tribesmen who lived in fear of the unkillable family of six warriors.
    Sudala made theri acquaintance and once they were reassured he wasn't coming after their heads, they told their story to him. They were all born and bred in the 11th century in present Tanzania, gathered and raised by Sudala a mother hen with the soul of a warrior, or rather a warrior woman with the soul of a mother hen; all grewup into adulthood exept for Kandaki and Kova who once drowned in swamps, all learnt to use the spear and the knife to defend themselves agaisnt potential headhunters and for four hundred years lived in relative peace until the arrival of the Portuguese and all mnners of Westerner Immortals who thought they could be easy kills. They may have been a tribe of half-naked savages, but they were aware of the Game and there were many Immortals whose Quickenings fed them time and time again.

    One hundred years later, They faced Immortal Farid al-Zafir and his slavers who were far too numerous for them and they were takern in captivity, their final fate unknown. But we doubt they would have preferred a life as slaves and there is no doubt they fought like devils to free themselves from the Arab slaver. The first European to reach the mountain was a missionary, Johannes Rebmann, who arrived there in 1848, his guide was Kashta of Nubia who hoped to reunite with his log-lost brothers and sisters, but none of them was ever found

    In conflict against Bartolomew, at this time leading
    Portuguese expedtion to Ethiopia

    Watcher Research once mistook Theodore Zeleke for Sunda Kastagir but those are two different men with similar background and same incentive to free their people from opressive colonial rule. Kastagir is Malian, Zeleke is Ethiopian and has been confirmed as born in the 13th century while Kastagir was born in pre-Christ era in the Kingdom of Axum; both men share the same taste for foreign cultures, the same sense of adventuring, the same taste for gorgeous negro women and a knack at surviving the Game for centuries.
    In 1867 Zeleke got in conflict against the Secret Immortal Services but Richeard of Mercia didn’t want the amiable Immortal’s Quickenign and turned the blind eye on his activities as resistance leader, letting him escape from the British colonial army with his men. Had it been Simon Killian or Steven Keane stationedin Ethiopia at this time, there is no doubt Zeleke would have been mercilessly slaughtered by a British saber.

    Lifes does move in circles. Recent research in East African chronicles uncovered the occurrence of Iman Fasil stationed with the Ottomans in Eritrea where he tracked down and killed the leader of a resistance movement opposing Ottoman presence in Eritrea. The man Fasil killed was Tesmi Idris, an Immortal recorded as having been the mentor of Immortal Zerai Deres and a former disciple of Kashta of Nubia. Both men fought like lions, the fight ending with Idris’ death.
    In 1937 Iman Fasil fought and killed Zerai Deres, at that ime a political lobbyist opposing the rise of fascism in Italy.
    When Fasil took Deres Quickening, did he see the presence of Idris through Deres' memories ? Did he even care ?

    Encounter with Connor MacLeod, at this time
    travelling in Africa with explorer James Bruce

    On May 21, 1937, in Rome, Italy was celebrating its fourth anniversary of the proclamation of the Italian Empire. The celebratory parade was attended by Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini and King Victor Emmanuel III. Thousands of soldiers from Italy’s African colonies marched during the parade. Among them was a young Eritrean man named Zerai Deres. He was carrying the sword to salute the King, the Führer, and Il Duce, at the grandstand. As the parade marched past the Vittorio Emanuele, he saw Lion of Judah Monument. That Monument was taken from Ethiopia by the Italians as a war booty. Zerai's shock was too great for him, and he drew his sword and with it he slew five fascist guards, as well as wounding others, before he was killed on the spot in a hail of gunshots.
    Deres was later found by Iman Fasil who recognized in him an ancient immortal, worthy of a challenge, and fought with him until Deres fell to his knees. Deres didn't want to fight Fasil, he only wanted to fight fascism but Fasil played the Game, nopt matter the place or era he was living in.

    Known past associates : Imre Horvath, Akos Hoka
    Known ennemies : Kane, Bukarev the Ogre
    First recorded sighting : 1241 Mongol siege of
    Ezstergom. Inconclusive fight against Kane

    In five hundred years of Immortality Eike Koubel has conciliated Immortal warfare (i.e the Game) and motherhood by raising entire crops of children on Holy Grounds, on the four corners of Hungary and beyong, no letting There Can Be Only One robbing her from the joys of motherhood and she chose carefully which men she would marry, disclose her secrets to and with whom adopting her own children. All of them were found in one village or another and there have been some among them who turned out Immortals themselves upon reaching adulthood or even earlier. Eike transmitted them values of courage, honesty, bravura and the love of their homeland and Magyar culture while teaching them to stand their grounds when the Magyar land was invaded, as she did in the 13th century when she faced Kane and a horde of Mongol plunderers. Kane was surprised to face a Magyar woman with a sword and he met defeat with cowardice running for his life, in fear of the savage witch ready to kill before allowing herself or one of her daughters to be raped or enslaved. Same thing with Bukarev in 1437 who had a hearty laugh when defeated and reconciled with his compatriot over mead and bread. Eike was last seen in 1437 but we had an inkling she lived a long an fruitful life, fostering her children and sometimes playing the Game to protect her clan.

    Turkish War, encounter with Tudor Filipescu
    Place : Vienna, Austria
    Victor : N.A
    Watcher : Research, ESA Chronicles

    Background
    Original cultural affiliation : Irish Muslim
    Born : 1631; Baltimore, West Cork Ireland
    First death : 1650, Raised as slave in the Ottoman
    Empire, killed by Melik Tanju to trigger immortality
    First teacher : Melik Tanju
    Known associates : Eternal Swords of Allah
    First recorded sighting : 1650. Ottoman Empire
    Slave of Melik Tanju, disciple of Jamal Labdouni

    Kian Zahed knew he was little more than an indentured servant of Melik Tanju but he knew little else than fighting for the Ottomans, was barely litterate and had only the Quran to guide him though his Immortal life.
    With mentors such as Melik and Jamal Labouni he didn’t have much a chance of getting out of his Muslim life free and happy. Sure he longed to be reunited with his Irish roots but the life he had was better than no life at all, and so by not choosing to leave the Ottoman Empire he chose to stay and fight until the bitter end. Then he met Tudor Filipescu at the Siege of Vienna and for the first time was confronted with an Immortal willing to take his head in the name of the Game, an Immortal so intense in his behavior, who emitted such darkness that he got the scare of his life and his Watcher saw him running in fear, litterally.
    He got lost during the siege, we are not too sure of his final fate. Was he found and killed by Filipescu, or punished by Melik Tanju for cowardice, we do not know. Or maybe he found a way to Ireland where he found some happiness for a time, however unlikely that may look.

    In 1978 J.F Horrigan investigated the Sydney Hilton bombing and found the culprit to be a Middle Eastern Immortal by name of Gulbuddin Shah, with links to a former associate of the Eternal Swords of Allah. Gulbuddin was a religious fundamentalist whose ideals had been twisted inside out by the teachings of Jamal Laboudini and Labdouni’s message of hatred extended as far as Australia.

      • Another great batch of chronicles there, my friend.

        Meanwhile, here is the last instalment of the first era of the rivalry between Richeard of Mercia and Aldrich Monk:

        1065 - As part of Richeard's long-term strategy, he sends Alfgar in secret to England. He stirs up rebellion in Northumbria and on 3rd October, the Northumbrian rebels capture York, outlaw Harold's brother, Tostig Godwinson, and choose Morcar of Northumbria as their new earl.

        1066 - 5 Jan. King Edward the Confessor dies.

        6 Jan. Harold Godwinson is chosen by the Witenagemot to be king over Edward's nephew Edgar the Aetheling, who is aged 15, betraying his oath to William of Normandy.

        Alfgar returns to Normandy, meeting up with Richeard and informing him of Edward's crowning, which Richeard anticipated.

        Elfrida and Ailef reconcile their differences in London in anticipation of Richeard's obvious next move.

        20 Sept. Battle of Fulford: Harald III of Norway, accompanied by Tostig Godwinson, invades England and defeats the English forces led by Morcar of Northumbria and Edwin, Earl of Mercia, in Yorkshire.

        25 Sept. Battle of Stamford Bridge: Ailef and Saegar fight with King Harold as he defeats and kills Harald III of Norway and Tostig. Elfrida remains in London in anticipation of Richeard's return.

        28 Sept. William, Duke of Normandy, lands an invasion force near Pevensey. Richeard of Mercia and Alfgar of Winchester return to England after years in exile.

        14 Oct. Battle of Hastings: William defeats and kills Harold. Richeard fights Ailef, while Alfgar battles Elfrida. Saegar remained in London. Richeard and Alfgar win their respective duels, but in the heat of battle, Ailef and Elfrida are able to flee the field. They join up with Saegar in London and then retreat north. Eadwulf, a Saxon in Harold's army, dies his first death and is found by Richeard and Alfgar, who mentor him and convert him to their cause.

        Inconclusive fight between Richeard of Mercia and Ailef of Deira, aka Aldrich Monk, 1066
        Inconclusive fight between Alfgar of Winchester and Elfrida of York, aka Evangeline Black, 1066

        Adjustment:

        Eadwulf
        First teacher: Richeard of Mercia & Alfgar of Winchester

        Fearful of Richeard's wrath and with no political cards to play, Ailef and Elfrida remove themselves from the board. They exile themselves to Iona Abbey off the west coast of Scotland, posing as clergy. Ailef changes his name to Aldrich the Monk (Aldrich Monk will become his better known name), Elfrida becomes Abbess Elfrida of York, but will re-emerge as the infamous Evangeline Black. They will spend the next 100 years there in scholarly pursuits, planning their next move, but politics will become something Aldrich and Evangeline choose to avoid in future, instead money and their own personal power will become their goal.

        Saegar does not join them, not keen on spending a century in abstinence. Instead, he hides out in Scotland for two decades until the heat dies down.

        25 Dec. Richeard, Alfgar and Eadwulf attend the coronation of William I of England in Westminster Abbey.

        Next time, we jump forward about 100 years and the first embers of what will become the Hellfire Club are sparked into life...

            wounded man who miraculously healed

            Livio Broccolino has been looking for his teacher, Belva Silvestri, with scores to settle with the woman who broke his heart centuries ago after she sent him on his way, his training complete. Some Immortals carry long grudges and Livio isn’t one to forget and forgive. That auto accident nealry cost him his life during the competitive race of 2002, I guess that taught him a lesson because he is even more cautious in racing than he is in the Game. Little does he know Belva died in 1961 against a child Immortal by name of Mayra Alejandra, thus mking of Livio’s grudge a needless one. What he doesn’t know keeps on hurting him, truly a shame.

            Morehead who fuleed his sense of patriotism


            Frank Bascombe,relatively new to the Game but already a savy swordfighter and collector of heads. His M.O is to settle in a place known for its population of immortals, take his time, settle in a mortal activity and then start counting the immortals living in the city. When he's done counting, Bascombe starts hunting for non-white immortals. He cheats : he compensates his poor swordfighting skills with stun gun, tear gaz, pouch of powder, anything; and when his quarry is weakened, he goes for the kill. Each decade sees a city depopulated from non-caucasian immortals : Southern Africa in the 1900's, Western Africa in the 1910's, North Africa in the 1920's and so on.

            From each immortal he killed, Bascombe took a souvenir : an Inca gold mak from Diego Cristobal, a short sword from Muhammad of Algiers, a spear from Colette Ougounbo. Because he was raised in Boer culture where white people held rascist views toward black and other-colored people, Bascombe makes a point on targeting only non-caucasian immortals : Black, Chinese, Italian, Slavic, Jewish etc.. All fall to his sword, because the bastard believes in eithnic cleansing among the immortals. His homes of Aspen, Johannesburg and Seattle are full of the mementos he picked from his quarries and bear testimony to the many cultures that white men eradicated from the surface of the earth for the past centuries.

            Frank was a disciple of Thomas Morehead at about the same time as Oskar Felder but never joined with the Combined Immortals of America, choosing other pursuits, as co-founder of the Ku Klux Klazn and the White Knights of America, a squadron of Immortlas even more rabis and dangerous then the CIA and who the CIA had to take out themselves, which goes to show there can be more extreme Immortals in America then even Thomas Morehead's group.

            Bozidara of Bohemia is the woman (or man) who taught the fine arts of cooking to Hugh Fitzcairn as well as proper manners in bed, a difficult task to a Medieval immortal of the 12th century, but she was a success in both ventures. To think Fitz the womanizer received his first lessons from a transvestite Immortal !
            Bohemian kitchen is famous for taking cheap ingredients and, by way of hard work, turning ithem into something very presentable. Hugh Fitzcairn was a crass, uneducated Englishmen, she tunred him into a very presentable Immortal too.
            Few rookies at Watcher Academy belived it when first studying the chronicel of Bozidara but this is a fine woman who made it to the top in eight hundred years of immortality, having to hide her nature but still iving happiliy, bedding men and women alike, playing the Game and taking heads if she couldn’t give any.
            I wasn’t the first Watcher assigned to her who became enamoured with the Bohemian (such charisma !) and it was all I could not ot interfere when George Chapman the transvestite-hunter came into town and seduced Bozidara. Bozidara was no fool, many came after her pretty head, but her weakness laid in sexual matters, like the gypsy moth lured to the flame. She never woke up from the night she spent with Chapman. Her favorite cookbook with those wonderful bohemian recipes is now in the office of the US Southeast Watcher Bureau. We miss her greatly.

            Don’t ask Kasanje about morals or ethics he lives through life without a conscience, having forsaken it centuries ago when he was head of the infamous Imbangala corps, the toughest corps of mercs in Southern Angola and beyond. Now he lines his pockets with money from war-torn countries of the African continent where he sells his guns. Against Sghair M’Barek he proved he was tough, but not enough agaisnt the fearsome lion and ever since he has challenged the best, to prove himself and to show the Immortal community that he will be a force to be reckoned with. We do believe the reckoning will come to him in the shape of the Immortals whose first deaths were triggered by the maiming and senseless butchery triggered by his guns. What goes around comes around, they say, and soon Kasanje will be no more.

            Mohamed Baghlani was hunted down by Luther who heard of his magical artefact, in the mistaken belief this was a piece of the Methuselah’ Stone and found the Mhjamed had none of the missing fragment of the precious stone. Just a single piece of stone around his neck and that was it. Luther let it slide after laughing at his expense and wished him good luck. In the end, there can be only one and Mohamed Bahglani will need more than superstition to protect him from the coming Gahtering.

            When Fatou Bassolo M’Bo became an Immortalit was too late for her to have her curative power heal an essential part of her feminity torn from her at the age of twelve and this is a wound she would have carried with her until the days of the Gathering, had she lived a little more. We do not know who was her killer but her death is a great loss to the countless women and girls of Niger who each year go through the torture of excision in the name of an antiquated tradition. She felt like a free woman in the last two decades and was happy, but the wound she kept with her was so painful that she wanted to prevent women of her country to endure it, and so she went from one village to another educating girls and women : "your body is yours only, you do not have to marry young, think of your education, have no fear around men". She preached with all her heart and felt she had all the time in the world. Unfortunately, it wasn’t so.

            In 1769 Terence of Coventry met Immortal Rewi Te Huia, a New Zealand native who, though living away from usual commercial routes, was aware of the existence of other Immortals and kept a strong arm, a sharp eye and an even sharper spear. Terence didn’t dare challenge the woman in the Game but challenge her in bed and was quite apt at convincing the little hellion that not all Western Immortals are bad fellows. In 1835 she had embraced pacifism, and may have longed for the return of the charming Englishman who stole her heart from her with her virginity.

            In 1980 Darius met Rossa Nuia of the Kerepuni in New Guinea and when interrogated she answered that among the 10,000 skulls he found on her island more than one belonged to Western or Asian Immortals who came after her and thought the old woman to be an easy mark. They tasted good too. Darius flinched but wasn’t surprised : on these parts of the world the natives can sometimes break some essential taboos of the civilized world. She never truly forgave Hippolito Cabral for bringing with him the terrible disease which nearly destroyed her people and still has scores to settle with him. Meanwhile, she has her pot, good meat, herbs and an empty stomach to feed. And an unquenchable hunger for more good Quickenings. Darius left her in haste and never visited the old woman again.

            • More great chronicles, my friend. Especially enjoyed the racist bastard Frank Bascombe being taken out by the Little Dragon Lang Quing - what goes around comes around! Lol

              Next up, a little embellishment of the Sampson Brass chronicle and an introduction to Honoria Dedlock. I'll also need your help completing the unfinished sections of these chronicles, thanks!

              Original cultural affiliation: Saxon
              Born: 799, Ashurst, Kingdom of Sussex
              First death: 829; carpenter murdered by the Lord of
              Ashurst for leaving his land without permission
              First teacher: ?

              While Aldrich Monk and Evangeline Black spent more than a century in hiding on the Isle of Iona off the west coast of Scotland, Sampson Brass, still known at this time as Saegar Lightfingers, opted to keep a low profile in Scotland for a few decades scratching a living as a con-artist. By 1143 he had made his way south to the town of Colchester where he soon ingratiated himself into the criminal underworld running a successful black market goods operation. Not long after, he came to the attention of two local Immortals, Ealdred of Ashurst, leader of the North End Boys gang, and his student and second-in-command Fawkes de Savage. Ealdred wanted Brass to pay protection to his gang, but Brass was not one to take threats like that seriously, especially from someone he considered a two bit crook. Instead, he offered his services as an enforcer, proving his worth by beating Ealdred's mortal gang members to a pulp. Ealdred accepted Brass' offer and unknowingly signed his own death warrant. By the end of the year Brass had worked his way up the ranks and on one dark night, he got Ealdred blind drunk in a tavern, lured him outside into an alley and decapitated him before he could draw his sword. By the next day, Brass had seized control of the gang, much to the ire of Fawkes de Savage, who nevertheless grudgingly accepted Brass' authority.

              First recorded sighting: 1093, Hereford
              Found on the streets of Hereford by Ealdred, who at
              this time was leading a rival gang

              When Sampson Brass took out Ealdred of Ashurst in 1143 and took over the North End Boys in Colchester, Fawkes submitted somewhat grudgingly to the older Immortal's authority, but all the while he was plotting revenge. It took him seven years until he finally had enough support to mount a challenge, but Brass, unlike Aldrich Monk, is not a man of subtlety. Furious at the betrayal, but not unsurprised, he savagely attacked Fawkes, his anger fuelling his sword arm, and he quickly overwhelmed him, driving him to his knees. When he took his head, the resulting Quickening quickly cowed the rest of Fawkes' followers, although Brass still took his revenge, murdering all of them

              First death: 1153; killed by Sampson Brass to trigger her
              immortality at her prime
              First teacher: Sampson Brass

              Following the attempted takeover of 1150, Sampson Brass re-named his gang the Lightfingers after his former nickname, and by 1153, he had taken under his wing a young female pre-immortal pickpocket named Heloise Mallory, who would one day become the infamous Honoria Dedlock of Aldrich Monk's Hellfire Club, who he grew attached to. When she reached 18, he stabbed her in the heart to trigger her immortality and she soon became his right-hand woman and most trusted adviser. The duo then quickly expanded their influence across Colchester and took control of organised crime in the town.

              First teacher: ?

              By 1161, the Lightfingers gang ruled the streets of Colchester, led by Sampson Brass and his student Heloise Mallory, aka Honoria Dedlock. They were rich and powerful, but power provokes envy and a group of criminals who had fled the town because of the Lightfingers sought revenge and hired a notorious enforcer to take out Brass and Mallory. Athalwolf was a brute of a man, a German giant who had forged his reputation over 250 years on the continent as an unstoppable bull in a china shop. Not too bright, his fearsome reputation was often enough to send his opponents running for the hills. But Sampson Brass does not scare easy and set a trap for the German Immortal, luring him into a cauldron of arrows, knives and spears within the narrow streets of Colchester. Most of the Lightfingers gang were slaughtered by Athalwolf, but by the time he reached Brass and Mallory, he was already staggering under multiple wounds. Heloise stabbed the weakened German in the back and Brass delivered the coup de grace, savouring the Quickening. With the Lightfingers all but annihilated, Sampson Brass and Honoria Dedlock left Colchester for their next venture.

              • Brillant research work, Apollo. Good writing too. About the future Immortals you create as kills of the Club's members, can I advise them as being also born out of England : Wales, Scotland, Irerland and other parts of Western and Northern Europe ? Even Scandinavia.
                I suppose the Hellfire Club dipped its collective feet in other parts of the British Empire, so that would mean kills In British Kenya, India, North America, etc..

                To think I started all this with a bunch of British names and a few pictures...

                • Yeah, no worries on that score, my friend. As you'll find out, the majority of the Hellfire Club's victims hail from the British Isles or its dependencies...

                  Meanwhile, here are those pre-Christ era Middle Eastern names you wanted:

                  Male:

                  Matanbael of Bit-Istar
                  Sapor of Corduene
                  Zananzash of Sam' al
                  Mazaios of Qataban
                  Daniel of Jericho
                  Enosh of Jezreel (Kingdom of Israel)


                  Female:

                  Artazostra of Aram-Damascus
                  Suriash of Bit Bahiani

                  Also, could you post the active and inactive Immortals of South America and Brazil, thanks...

                  Cheers

                    Thebes, disowned by his teacher when he turned
                    against him

                    Though not much is known about Medios of Thebes liene of students – a discreet Immortal, his chronicle is sparse – there is one whose tale we know. Of an ambitious Carduchoi Immortal who came from a lost country and became a proficient player of the Game drawn to the dark side of Immortality. When he came after Medious and tried tio kill him, Medios disowned him but must have wished he had killed him himself because Sapor of Corduene killed ten Immortals between his confrontation against Medios and his death by the blade of the madman Gimillu, all of them pacifical beings or former players of the Game who had discarded their swords. Women, children, elderly Immortals, none were safe from his blade and there was no end to his relentless hunt for the fabled Prize. And he savored each Quickenings, oh yes. He was so savage an Immortal that some of us benefactors thought of hunting him ourselves to put an end to his rampage. It was Gimillu who took him out, in a touch of irony : Gimillu was a lunatic who racked up a fair number of kills himself and kicked Sapor’s ass real good before taking his head and Q.

                    of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

                    I killed Amestrin of Ugarit during the Bronze Age collapse when we rode in the Middle East and destroyed entired cities, passing people to the sword, killign and raping and burning and looting. The madness seemed to go on forever. Kronos raped Ugarit and then we three took turns with Silas and Caspian. Who would take the head and Quickenign was decided with dice. I won become I was lucky and smarter than my brothers. When I read those words it feels like an ancient demon speaking and maybe I still am. The old Methos is lurking somewhere and this is one of the things I am still afraid of. Was Kronos right ? Did I truly change over the centuries ?

                    Addendum

                    It is my brother Kronos who killed Enosh the Cannanite, a zealot and self-annoàinted protector of Amestrin. When he awoke from hsi First Death he must have felt rejected by his ods and then foudn a new calling in keeping his teacher safze from other Immortals. Amestrin kept him around as bodyguard and she must haze found his sword useful, though she was good with a blade in her hands too. I think Enosh was blinded by his love because Amesdtrin had but complete disregard from him when she offered me his head in exchange for her life. I laughed at her, and handed her over to Kronos for some playtime when he was done enjoying Enosh' Quickening. Savage men livign in savage times. I make no apologies.

                    when he took Xanthia of Melitus to Ravansar
                    Spring to cure her of a Dark Quickening

                    After 92 years of hunting his old friend, Metopholus finally caught up to Xanthia in Alexandria the year the city was besieged by the Muslims who ordered the burning of Alexandria’s library. A tragedy for the wise Prisca Negra, a Nubian woman once disciple of Sunda Kastagir, and who sought to preserve the world knowledge, only to see it burnt down. But nothing could save her from pillaging Arabs and from the demented Xanthai who took her out after a brief battle. Did Prisca Negra’s Quickening sane her up ? Or was it Prisca’s innate goodness and widsom which washed away Xanthia’s anger and hate ? When Metopholus found Xanthia, it was as if she was reverting to her old self, but the ancient immortal knew better and took her to Tripolitania, to an ancient shrine located in a cave, where he left her on her own for seven days and nights, until Xanthia finally rid herself from her demons. The shrine was kept by a Muslim friend of his, Fayrul ibn al-Din who made sure Xanthia was kept safe.
                    In the end, Xanthia’s goodness prevailed and she was back to her senses, but befallen with the memories of the good immortals she murdered and of the mortals lives she destroyed during her rampaging years.

                    In 1990, David Bautista travelled all the way from Venezuela to Black Friars in Wales to cure some mild-anxiety symptoms he suffered from, having heard of Sean Burns’ reputation with immortal patients. Burns wasn’t impressed by the Latin immortal he had worse specimens to taker care off in his cells, seeing the lost little boy behind the façade of macho cynism, an immortal who had lost his courage centuries ago and was searching for himself. Batista confessed his teacher, a holy man from Mexico, had been killed by another immortals and he felt that if not even a holy man like Juan de Palos or Darius was safe, then how could he hope to survive more centuries ? Beside, he felt tired and depressed. Sean Burns reminded him of the violent nature of immortals : did Batista play the Game ? Batista answered hom no. Burns retorted he suffered from the usual burnout and depression afflicting immortals after centuries of warfare, and that he didn’t get back on his feet, he would end up a washed-out coke addict like the unfortunate Brian Cullen. This saned Batista right up : when he came back to Latin America, he started hunting again and felt much better. I don’t suppose Burns had in mind to turn a depressed mobster into a player of the Game. Oups.

                    For the past century it hasn't been possible to separate the Chronicle of Maria de Savedra from the Chronicle of Carmen Morales, the two women having fallen for each other ever since they met in 1907 in Peru. While Carmen has been recorded as always choosing female lovers, at risk for herself since homoexuality was viewed as a perversion and an offense four centuries ago, Maria Cuadra was much more discreet but always had female friends and companions.
                    The two women are now together, united in joy and grief, in bliss and misfortune, in the same relationship that Hazeem Al Bachrim and Carter Wellan have been keeping for nine hundred years. Like Haresh and Carter, Robert and Gina de Valicourt, Carmen and Maria are the living proof that love can last forever and that Immortality isn't just about the Game, it is about eternal bliss.

                    For the past century it hasn't been possible to separate the Chronicle of Maria de Savedra from the Chronicle of Carmen Morales, the two women having fallen for each other ever since they met in 1907 in Peru. While Carmen has been recorded as always choosing female lovers, at risk for herself since homoexuality was viewed as a perversion and an offense four centuries ago, Maria Cuadra was much more discreet but always had female friends and companions.
                    The two women are now together, united in joy and grief, in bliss and misfortune, in the same relationship that Hazeem Al Bachrim and Carter Wellan have been keeping for nine hundred years. Like Haresh and Carter, Robert and Gina de Valicourt, Carmen and Maria are the living proof that love can last forever and that Immortality isn't just about the Game, it is about eternal bliss.

                    Caras De Trevyn’s life was like a fairy tale. She was found and raised in a castle by and old but minor aristocratic Welsh family. Her adoption by the family was not an act of altruism. Their 2 month old baby girl died, and she had been betrothed# to the young son of the Ap Tudor family. The small property that was given as the bride price was vital to the farms that the family owned. And they couldn’t afford to lose it. But Old Rhys De Trevyn got them more than a strip of land, they got a beautiful, intelligent and loving daughter. Arranged marriages among the aristocracy rarely have anything to do with love, but by all accounts it was love at first site for Caras and Bevan.
                    And for the five years they were together were very happy until a blood feud between the Trevyns and Bevan’s family came to a horrific end. The castle was attacked and all the men were slaughtered. The soldiers then proceeded to massacre the women and children. A few of the women and Caras threw themselves off the tower walls than wait to be raped and killed by the Tudors. Caras reawakened from her first death surrounded by the bodies of family and friends. With no place to go Caras entered an abbey of Bro Morganwwd. There she encountered Katherine who taught her how to use a sword. And she learned her lessons well : she has lived for 700 years, occasionally fighting off challengers but never becoming a hardened player of the Game : she was content with being a midwife, a healer, a homemaker, and a sucessful businesswoman in modern times until her untimely death against Daria De Souza.

                    I don’t know if Behrad has anything to fear from Deoneces and Kyra of Sparta by now, the ESA has been destryed, their legacy of hatred has been purged too in the 2010’s and no one else on the Immortal scene has connections to Jamal Laboudni’s group. Methink Behrad Hamayoun is runnign from himself, fro mthe bad memories he had of Laboudni’s fatatism who infected him for a time before the Spartan duo came after his ‘teacher’ and he was forced to go underground. When his first teahcer, Kateb Qatyeb, was killed by the CIA in the wake of the WTC attacks, Behrad ran again and sough safze haven in the jungles of Guatemala.
                    He hides, but he cannot hide from the coming Gathering ,lloming nearner and nearer on the horizon.

                    To escape the clear and present dangers of the Game, some immortals will choose faraway and distant lands where they are alone, like the wastelands of Antactica, Patagonia, or the Andes Mountains like tour guide Chiquito Quiroz, the last survivor of the original Chanka people who were decimated by the Spaniards in the 15th century. Quiroz may not be one of the oldest immortals but his self-preservation instinct allowed him to survive the near-extiction of Amerindian immortals during the past centuries. And also to have escaped the wrath of Rupac Inca Huaco after he guided this group of immortal explorers in the Andes when they were searching a mythical city were Incas thrived. The city was never found, because of Quiroz efforts to take them in false directions. However, they did find a holy place which housed mummyfied remains of an inca God and brought it with them to Europe, so this is the reason of their untimely disappearance in Brazil : finally, an Amerindian immortal enacted his just vengeance on the group.

                    Poor Olivia never had much luck with men, all the ones she dates eventually quit on her, scared by the ancientness they see in her eyes, sensing that maybe this is a woman who outlived a lot of men, and indeed she has after two hundred years of warfare and coutships, always mixing love and war. She trusts no immortal man however, and it is a shame : like the Valicourts before her, she could live a happy life one century or two with the ‘right’ immortal. But no, she is wary of the Game, of the immortals playing it and prefers playing her little games on the mortal scene.

                    The invasion of Ecuador in 1941 by Peruvian troops, forced the country to accept the protocols of Rio de Janeiro in 1942, depriving it from Amazonian territories. A blemish on Ecuador’s national pride that contributed to the revolution of May 1944. It is during the 1941 invasion that Ecuadorian immortal Luis Timpantuna was killed, during an artillery barrage from Peruvian guns; Luis had been a freedom fighter in the name of his homeland ever since his First Death in 1822. In the 1938, he became legit, so to speak, and joined the Ecuadorian army, only to be killed three years later in an artillery barrage but resurfaced in the mid-1990’s in Ecuador. Luis is still active in the Ecuadorian army though he does his best to keep his distance from others of his kind.

At least she is strongly suspected of doing so. More a missign each week and clues point her as the source of this evil.

                      The oldest and greatest student of Deoneces of Sparta, Baro is a mighty swordsman and the sworn enemy of Flavius Sulla and his protege Lucius Oranius Capito. He fought them both to a standstill, encountering Sulla on the outskirts of Rome in AD 94 and facing off with Capito when they both served in the Praetorian Guard in 217. Baro's friends were enemies of Capito and Sulla. The deaths of some of his friends at the hands of the Roman headhunter has made Baro even more determined to find Capito and destroy him, same way he eventually did with Sulla in 1942 at the Battle of El-Alamein. Whenever he hears word of Capito's activities, Baro rushes to the scene hoping to fight him again and finish what he started, but Capito always seems to elude him. Both immortals are taking the heads of ancient Immortals; Capito killing any he can find, Baro only the evil ones, in a desperate race to gain power so that when they meet again, only the strongest will survive.

                      Appius (or Aubrey as he preferred to be called, Alex these days) is the perfect example of how time and circumstances change Immortals over the centuries, especially those of us in the ancient bracket. Adopted into one of the old patrician families in Metapontum, Aubrey spent his youth desperately trying to earn the love and approval of his wealthy father and the respect of his peers among the old families of Rome. He picked up the typical patrician traits of arrogance and self-importance, looking down on the plebeian classes with disdain, strutting around the classier environs of the city with his gaggle of like-minded sycophants mixing with all those other sons and daughters of nobility, spoiled and entitled (oh, how times change!). His presence at Cannae was another attempt to impress his father, since all sons of senators could find glory and wealth in the legions of the mighty Republic. His death stole away his “destiny” but not, as Deoneces found, any of his less redeeming traits. After all, his teacher was Greek, not Roman! But if there’s anything I’ve learned about the Spartan over the centuries; do not get on his bad side. Needless to say, Aubrey’s training was brutal. He was forged in blood and iron, by one of the greatest warriors of the Immortal world. And yet his arrogance and disdain for the lower classes never left him. It would explain his early rivalry with Capito, whose own family was looked down upon by the wealthier clans of Rome.
                      Aubrey’s early encounters with others of his kind were marked by his own unpleasant demeanour, four heads taken needlessly through imagined slights, misunderstandings, or his own disdain for anyone he considered lowborn. But fate was to take a strange turn during the time of the Black Death in England. A chance encounter with a peasant girl while on a mission for a wealthy lord he was in service to, was to prove to be his epiphany. He told me it was love at first sight, “the most beautiful redhead he had ever seen” who was feisty to boot. He said she tamed the Roman within him. He was supposed to torch the village for refusing to pay their taxes, but Aubrey instead carried the girl off to safety, betraying his lord. They went on the run when an Immortal the lord had used before to murder political rivals and enemies was sent to hunt them down. But Aubrey and his lover, Esme, fled to France. By the time the hunter located his quarry, Aubrey had settled as a blacksmith in an Alpine village. In the end, the fight was savage and a close-run thing, but Aubrey triumphed and found peace at last. He married Esme, who knew his secret, and they were together for 30 years. When she died of old age, Aubrey was devastated, but she made him promise to live his life to the full and to protect others from what he used to be.
                      He kept the promise. He forged a new sword, carving his wife’s face into the pommel, and travelled the world learning new skills, experiencing new cultures, and helping others where he could. He has proved to be every bit as formidable as his teacher; his rivalry with Capito became less about their Roman heritage and more about Aubrey trying to rid the world of a dangerous headhunter. I don’t think he cared that he wasn’t the one to take out Capito in the end, Aubrey isn’t the man he used to be. None of us are.

                      by Carlos and Grace during travel

                      Kamak first appeared in the jungle of Amazonia during an exploratory tour by Carlos Sendaro and his wife Grace. Both immortals were surprise to find an immortal among the diminutive Amazonian headhunters. We do not known how long Kamak has been an immortal, even he isn't sure.
                      From his conversations with Grace he met his first death several generations ago in circuimstances even he doesn't remember.
                      At this time, Sendaro was hiring natives on his plantation, ruling them all with an iron hand, seeing hismelf as their chosen god. Grace didn't like how her husband was turning out to be and decided to take charge of Kamak's education as an immortal.
                      Secretly from her husband she taught Kamak to read and write, to speak English and to use a sword.
                      After Grace finally left Sendaro, Kamak also left and vansihed from Watcher records until he re-appeared in 1945 around the Amazon basin, as a hunter, a tour guide in the 1960's and an assassin during the 70's.
                      In the 1990’s he was running a Tequila distillery, having retired from a life of murders and mayhem when Chang came after his head, and made short work of the diminutive Aamazon immortal.

                      Of all Henry's students, Felix has been the one to embrace his immortality with excitement and enthusiasm, looking upon it more as an opportunity than a curse, indulging his obsession for innovation and invention, putting himself at the heart of the industrial revolution and all the great creativity of the ninetenth century and then all the advancements of the twentieth. He stayed away from mortal conflicts, he had no interest in all the wars and bloodshed, choosing to live life to the full, mixing with the intellectuals and dreamers; his kind of people. Still, he has never shirked his place in the Game and has kept his swordarm in good shape, always practicing as his teacher advised him, even picking up tips from such legendary fighters as Deoneces of Sparta, Frankie Drummond and Roman Alvarez, a lesson quickly learned by three Immortals who came after his head over the last two centuries. He is a flamboyant, some would say, flashy, fighter, combining different styles, using speed and dazzling technique to overcome his opponents. He has met and befriended some of history's great inventors and innovators, George Stephenson, Frederic Francois Chopin, Samuel Morse, William Armstrong, Tomas Edison, the Wright brothers, and even Walt Disney. He was inspired by his visit to the Great Exhibition in 1851 and was there in Hollywood when movies were in their infancy, workling with the great silent movie stars, including Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton and Harold Lloyd. Today, he is back at the heart of the creative industry, writing, producing and directing in New York for the big TV networks and cable. Someday, he hopes to break into the movies again and dreams of winning a creative Oscar, the culmination of his aspirations, and for his name (at least the name he uses today) to be up there with the greats.

                      Marchette never forgot his teacher's most important lessons about immortality : "the head that stands above the crowd is the one that gets chopped off", and this is why although he was trained by the best swordman in Russia, Marchette always kept a low profile, staying out of the Game for most of his immortality and seldom taking a head - only when forced to do so, or to protect someone close to him.
                      One of the younger immortals, Marchette like his quiet life here, in Manaus, living with his mortal lover Constanza and avoiding the other immortals of Brazil. It is a good life, and Marchette doesn't want it any other way.

                      How many Roman Immortals survived to present times, exactly ? Nine ? Ten ? More ? One of them is Marcus Octavius asadistic killer with charisma to burn, giving him an apparence of niceness that belies a ferocity and a lack of principles that match his teacher, my brother Kronos. Ah Kronos, your legacy endures and I am afraid it will live out the Gatherin unless someone finally disposes of the old wolf. I bet on Alconen of Britain, Marcus’ age-old ennemy who always fought on the side of the angels while Marcus worked for conquerors history would damn : Nero, Genghis Khan, Hitler, Stalin. Nowadays he is a retired businessman and philanthropist in Rio with plans inside plans I cannot fathom. I am keeping an eye on my spiritual nephew but I suspect him to be part of the Zodiac Brotherhood once thought destroyed after the Immortals War five years ago. History taught me the Brotherhood is like the hydra of myth : severs ten heads, ten more will spurt out and I believe this ‘head’ has a lot of venorm to spit out upon us.

                      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.

She has been looking for Methos, for the fabled Chaga clansmen, for Lung-shu but couldn’t find them. She is patient, she will find him. She has had several kills of ancient immortals under her belt, coming after their heads as a collector of valuable antiques.

                      The Game destroyed Na’ilah Saniyah and Lila Abu-Sitta's relationship, a love story that lasted seven hundred years until both women were so impacted with the violence of the Game they started playing : going after rapists molesting women and childnen, war profiteers selling guns to Middle Eastenr war-torn countries, slavers trafficking European women sold on the North African slave markets, pushers selling drugs to children of America. And then against players of the Game killing Immortals because There Can Be Only One. They lost themselves in the 1990's before losing each other. Today they live separate lives, and though they fled woman's persecutions in the Middle East they still have to play the Game again and again in North America and Brazil. When they faced their latest challenges, a pair of terrorist Immortals, they won but didn't recognize each other. They understood they had finally become like their ennemies and grew bitter. Na’ilah and Lila agreed it was better to part ways, since the Game had consummed the love they once felt for each other.
                      It is the true tragedy of the Game when it manages ot destroy a love story between two Immortals.

                      Anna Flavia Salvador
                      First recorded sighting : 2006. Sao Paulo, Brazil
                      During outbreak of violence between Sao Paulo
                      street gangs and police forces,, trained by lover
                      Rodriguo

                      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 Sao Paulo with Carlita. Both women are expectant mother and grand-mother for March 2018 with two good friends in the Game.

                      Arquelao Chavarria is the only known Immortal to have survived a one-night stand with the mbntis child prostitute Mayra Alejandra. He was seduced by the petite immortal and the girl liked his sense of humor and the fact they shared the same physical and mental scars from tragic pasts. Nonetheless, Chavarria is a dangerous gangster who is causing serious gang-related problems in Buenos Aires, as well as bering a proficient player of the Game.

                      Joao Dos Pajos loves gold, he loves only gold as Shirley Basset could sing it since this is a man whose immortality took his humanity away leaving a man obsessed with gold’s purity, it’s color, the way he can shape it to his will since he cannot shape the world around him. He cannot control the Game, nor can he prevent the Game from catching up to him, but he can control gold and goldsmithing is the only thing making him happy. His works sell millions in Europe, true works of art. With his fortune he built a fortress in Cunha-Sacupula where he lives in relative seclusion waiting for the time of the Gathering when he will be pulled to fight others of his kind in a faraway land. His money has bought him the best training so far, always mortal teachers for he doesn’t trust those of his kind. His sword is ready : a beautiful cutlass, its handle ornated with gold and a ruby at the tip of the handle. Truly a work of art.

                      burial society of Sydney.

                      Avram and Leah Goldberg’s main subject of dispute is wether Jews should remain dispersed all across the world or gather all in Israel, to the land of their ancestors, and especially Immortal Jews who bear the responsibility of carrying the memories of their kin all through the centuries. Leah is content with the life they have in Brazil on which Avram agrees, but Avram also feels the couple could have aided the fundation of the state of Israel during post-war years. Avram believe the two Immortals need to move out of Nelo Horizonte, Leah is happy there and won’t move a finger to help her brethen who went to the slaughter like sheep to the salughter. Harsh words, but Avram thinks different. He could have made a difference in Europe, who knows.
                      As caretakers of the bodies of the deceased at Temple Beth Israel, the couple have been making sure Jews get a proper burial in Belo, but there are six millions who never got the proper funeral rites and whose ghosts call to them from the great beyond. At least that’s what Avram keeps telling his wife. And when faced with the horrors of the holocaust, Leah would rather forget and live her Immortality in peace.

                      In the Game, if you have poor swords skills you need good legs, and what has been true for marathon runners in the past is also true for David Lopez, a relatively young immortal who hates beign involved in fights because when he sees two men fight its scares him, frightens him and make him want to run. I suppose being a competitive runner is as safe an occupation as any for immortal who trie to stay out of competion.

In one hundred years she moved from one country to another, from one tv set to another, going so far as working for Rod Serling in the 1960’s, playing in an episode of the Twilight Zone and getting acquainting to Rod’s wife, Cordieia Stanton, fellow immortal.
                      She is the immortal who inspired to Rod the story of Walter Jameson, an immortal victim of his immortality, but had to leave the Californian scene because of an affait she developped with the writer, gettign an irate reaction from the usually sweet-natured Delia Stanton.
                      Those days, she lives in Sao Paulo, again an actress, married to her producer in the hope of inheriting his money and studio when he dies, se maybe she can get another fifteen minutes of fame.

                      Report on the Thalia, the Sleeping Beauty

                      Every children on this earth has been told the legend of the Sleeping Beauty : a beautiful princess, a long time ago, who was sentenced to eternal sleep until a charming prince would wake her up with a kiss. It seems that legend was true : the Sleeping Beauty really existed, and she was an immortal : the immortal woman known as Thalia, whose origins where, so far, unknown to us. Everything that follows is the fruit of endless days of research from a brilliant team of Watchers : Phillip Castellano, Mary Sutherland, Frank Berger and Ann Sainclair. Congratulations to the four of them !
                      It is Ann who found out that in 1634, Giambattista Basile had written the original story of "The sun, the moon and Thalia" in a book called "Il Pentamerone". Charles Perrault, and later Disney, later inspired themselves from that story. It is also Ann who suggested that the original story might have been based on factual events.
                      Hence, here is how the story goes :

                      In the middle of the tenth century, the king of some obscure European country had only one daughter whom he wanted to marry to some rich prince. Unfortunately, the beautiful princess brusquely died on her 18th birthday. The King was so devastated with grief that he ordered her daughter to be entombed in her bedroom and the castle to be forever locked up. His orders were followed. The princess, no doubt a foundling, never woke up from her eternal sleep because of oxygen deprivation.
                      One century passed. Some immortal knight by name of Cornelius Jainus passed around, settling in the abandoned castle for the night, in spite of the surrounding area's reputation of being haunted. As he prepared himself for the night, Ashe sensed something odd. Could it be the "buzz", signaling the presence of an immortal ? No, it was too weak. Alerted, Ashe searched the entire castle for the origin of the signal. And he found it, coming from behind a dust-covered wall. The following morning, Ashe arranged some help for himself, gathering some men who would keep their mouths shut. The four men destroyed the wall brick by brick. They broke open the door...and found a miracle. A magnificent, blonde-haired, young woman, sleeping in her bed. Ashe ordered the men to go back to their town and gave them gold to insure their silence; once they were gone, Ashe approached the lady and gave her a light kiss on her lips, waking her up.
                      "I thought I was dead", said the lady.
                      "You were", answered Ashe. "And you will live forever".
                      And so a legend was born : the legend of the Sleeping Beauty who died and came back to life, thanks to a charming prince from a distant country. That story was reported by Ashe's one-time assistants who became Watchers a short time thereafter. The story was later written in the shape of a fairy tale.

                      But whatever happened to the Sleeping Beauty, after she met Ashe ? She became his student and later his lover. They fought together in battle and lived happily together until Ashe's death at the blade of Lucius Oranius Capito. Ashe's death broke the Beauty's heart. She never was the same again. She became a bandit, a pirate, a mercenary. Two hundred years later she was known as Belle Starr, the infamous bandit woman from the US southwest and relocated more recently in San Francisco as painter, living a sedentary life afar from the perils of the Game. Thalia vanished from San Francisco in 1996; she re-appeared ten years later in Brazilia as a cabaret singer, enjoying herself immensely and keeping away from Immortals when possible.

She loves the company of spiders more than she likes the company of men or Immortals and knows that the female is the deadliest of the species, so she trains constantly, weaving her web in Maranhao waiting for any Immortal to come after her. She has bagged a dozen that we know of since her first appearance in 1910 when she befriended Carmen Morales and recanted her story to her : of how she originally died from smallpox brougth by Europeans, was trained by an Italian surgeon who had a devil of a time explaining the Game to her. Of how she was betrayed by a priest and stopped believign the lies white men tell. Her only friends now are spiders and spiders will guide her through the years of the Final Gathering.

                      Stephane Witkowski recognized Francisco Ramirez as Hugues De Ferm, the immortal who sold him and his companions to the Nazis in 1942 when he was a Communist leading a resistance cell against the German occupation of Paris. Stephane was amazed that De Fer was a fellow immortal but he decided to bring justice to his fallen comrades and started training again, before his confrontation against the immortal. Hugues didn’t train too often and wasn’t motivated to play the Game, while Stephane was a skilled fighter and an apt survivor, having been through a lot in his time : Nazi occupation of his country, running form the Combine Immortals of America, fighting immortals during the Immortals War and now this.
                      It was a closure gesture for Witkowski when he took De Fer’s head an Quickening.

                      The time has come for Stephane Witkowski to move on with his life, to start building house elsewhere, as cosmetics aren't enough to make him apparently age. This, and he wants to look young. So he faked his own death and made evevything necessary so that he would disappear completely and never be found. He has chosen Argentina, in South America, one of the far-off places in the southern hemisphere where immortals go, when they need a change of pace or to disappear from the modern world. Asia, Africa, Australia. Sout America. Good places of hiding are to be found there. So Witkowski had an immortal friend of his create a virus in the US governement databases to erase himself copletely from the computers. Free at last. I am moving with him, not wishing to lose my assignment. I alm curious to see how he fares in Buenos Aires, a city of 13 million people noted for the uniqueness of its architecture. I am positive it will give him the energy and new inspiration he needs.

                      • Thanks for these my friend. Much appreciated.

                        I'm currently working on two Immortals killed by Aldrich Monk and Evangeline Black when they emerged from their century or so of exile and I'll post them tomorrow.

                        Cheers

                        • Messalina of Rome, aka Serena Nero

                          Serena was a favorite of Emperor Nero, not just because of her sexual skills and great beauty, but also because of the fire burning in her eyes, the fire of madness. That woman was absolutely insane, even by the antique world standard when the Roman Empire was on the verge of disintegration.There is a theory running around that Serena might have inspired Nero to start the Great Fire of Rome, fueling his madness with false rumors on the barbaric ways of the Christians. We shall never know for sure. What we really know of her is that she perished during the Great Fire and awoke immortal... to be found by a former gladiator, Karros, who had just fought immortal Carpus Cornelius and won. Interesting to note Rome was a hotbed of immortal activity during the Great Fire : the Kurgan also fought immortal Decima Justus to a standstill ! Karros rescued Serena from the pile of debris in which she was buried and mistakenly identifiedher as a new immortal, but also noticed the madness hidden in the woman's frame.

                          Both immortals travelled during a few years, until Karros tired of Serena's agressive sexuality and left her in Antium where she lived under an assumed name until her encounter with Marcus Aedilies, player of the Game and cowardly spirit who tried to murder the woman in her bed after a night spent with her. Serena was aware that immortal men would come after her, but she wasn't sound of mind and didn't belive that young man clad in leather would be a threat. She was very wrong. Fortunately she escaped from his blade and was last seen in Constantinople in 330 at the begining of the Byzantine Empire living a life of leisure and luxury, no longer the naïve Immortal, rather a manipulative vixen using her sexual power to entrap men in games of politics and Immortals in the Game.

                          Sword, identified as a student of Judith of Bethulia

                          Brian Cullen tried to run from the Game by going to the Yukon, he nearly froze to death in the wilderness, and so did I. Finally he reached Whitehorse, where he tried to reinvent himself as a fur trader, but you don't improvise yourself a fur trader like this. You have to know the forest, the animals, the price traders are ready to pay for pelts. All this, and Cullen's a lousy alcoholic and opium addict. Good fer nothing runt, it ya know what I mean. When I was told I would Watch a champion of the Game I was disappointed - and a little disgusted. Come on, the guy's a ruin ! He even ran away from a challenge ! A gold digging Russian by name of Akhmetov, posing as an immigrant from Minsk. Akhmetov challenged Cullen because he didn't want any immortal competition in the Yukon; when Cullen ran away, Akhmetov hunted him down like a rabbit ! I swear, that Cullen must really have lost his nerves to need opium in his life. He picked up his sword and came after Akhmetov like a madman, yelling and foaming at the mouth. Crazy bugger. Akhmetov wasn't a player of the Game, he only fought to protect what was his and was good at it. But he didn't have the craziness that allowed Cullen to chop his arm off and to lop his naffin' head off. When Cullen was done with the Q. he buried the body, stole whatever possession Akhmetov had and left, just like that. I am going to follow him, I suspect he is tired of the cold from Yukon and will settle in a place with warmer climate. Bob Cantrell, 12 March 1891 From the Chronicle of Brian Cullen

                          • Another great chronicle, my friend, as always. Keep up the good work.

                            Meanwhile, i know i said I'd post two kills for Aldrich Monk and Evangeline Black, but I've recently had inspiration for another antagonist for the SIS, this time something completely different to the Hellfire Club. I'll continue working on their chronicles, but i thought I'd get this done while inspiration has come to me...

                            Jakelin of Bordeaux is better known in our records as one of the earliest recorded Immortal serial killers with a nickname, Jacques Boudreaux, aka The Sin Eater, during his rampage across western Europe and in London where, on 15 June 1453, his career came to an end by the blade of Saxon Immortal and SIS member Eadwulf.
                            Before 1307, he was a religious fundamentalist Templar Knight, who believed his immortality was a divine gift. Unusually for an Immortal, he stayed in the ranks of the Templars for nearly two centuries by continuously dying in battle and then relocating to another region, changing his identity and appearance, and re-joining the Order, something a lot easier to do in those days.
                            Then in 1307, he, along with hundreds of other Templars, was arrested on the orders of Phillip IV of France, tortured, and burned at the stake. His scars never fully healed, neither his flesh nor his damaged psyche. Convinced God had punished him for not doing enough to punish sinners, he set out to correct that mistake. He drifted from town to town, murdering, mutilating and even consuming the flesh (eating the sins) of those he judged had committed sins against the Word of God.
                            He appeared in London in 1452 as a blacksmith, while at night he stalked the streets in a skull mask and murdered his victims, branding the corpses with his mark in Latin, Peceatum Comedenti, the Sin Eater. Richeard of Mercia, convinced an Immortal was responsible, sent Alfgar of Winchester and Eadwulf onto the streets of London to hunt him down. Eventually, Eadwulf tracked Boudreaux to his forge in the East End and finally brought his rampage to an end, the Quickening setting fire to his forge.

                            Eadwulf

                            When seven mutilated, partly ingested bodies were found over two weeks in London marked with the Latin words, Peceatum Comedenti, Richeard of Mercia recognised the handiwork of the Immortal serial killer Jacques Boudreaux, the Sin Eater. But he knew the Sin Eater was killed by Eadwulf in 1453, so Richeard suspected a copycat was at work. Alfgar, Eadwulf, Raimond d'Amboise, Helen Bondeville, and Allegra Chambers hunted the serial killer through the streets of London, but two more bodies dropped before Alfgar of Winchester tracked him down to a blacksmith's forge in the West End. There, he discovered that Ambrose Valance wasn't a copycat, but rather Boudreaux's apprentice and had been responsible for two of the murders in 1453. He had witnessed his teacher's demise, but had vowed to continue his holy work. Alfgar put an end to Ambrose after a short battle and, presumably, the Sin Eater. However, a week later, one more body was found in a tavern on the outskirts of London with the mark of the Sin Eater. No more deaths were recorded that year, but Richeard and his crew remained on alert in case Ambrose had also trained an apprentice.

                            BTW Since the Sin Eaters would have been active in other places around Europe at the time, if you can think of any other Immortals who would have encountered or tried to track them down, please feel free to incorporate them.

                            • Goodness gracious ! Here I am having a wonderful pizza for tonight, thinking "I am a sinner, I a going to Hell for this !" and you come up with this brilliant chronicle ! We are truly joined by the brains, Apollo.

                              I'll think of something for the Sin eater Saga, no problem. Meanwhile... if you give me 24 more Middle Eastern names from forgotten, out of the way kingdoms and city-states, we could find ourselves with a whopping sum of 1000 Immortals for the entire Asian/Western Asian continent... (wink!) Any country you like, nut not too much from Anatolia and Turkey we have enough as it is. More from Peninsular Arabia and Caucasus. A little from Levant.

                              I am glad you liked the chronicles so far.

                                The Vikings, like other sea-rovers, are not as romantic as nineteenth-century fiction would make them out to be; neither are they exclusively the blood-thirsty ravishers depicted in the chronicles of the monks of England and Ireland. They may not have worn horned helmets,
                                but they did sail ships carved with dragons' heads and they ventured far out into the western sea in search of new lands and adventure. In about 1000 AD, Leif Eriksson (son of Erik the Red) explored the new continent, acompanied by immortals Ejnar Kanwulfsson and Sygin Fenrisdottir, the latter being later cross-referenced as Kellistra, student of the fabled Four Horsemen. For the next ten years a number of voyages were made from Greenland to the new land, which the Norselmen called "Vinland" because of the profusion of grapes that grew there. Sygin and Kanwulf settled there and created a colony that flourished, adopted several orphaned Viking children they named after Gods of Norse mythology : Eir, Freya, Thor, Heimdall, Kvasir and Balder.
                                More than one century went on before the prophecy of six immortal Vikings born from Vinland would come true. Kanwulf and Sygin's clan enlarged itself and then came the time for her brethen to leave the paradise for a much harsher world. The six children she adopted and who all turned out to be immortals spent decades discovering the North-Amercian continent before
                                leaving for the land of their ancestors toward the beginning of the 12th century.
                                The Vinland immortals had originally decided to stay in the New World when their mortal comrades all returned to Greenland and Iceland because they were disgusted when the Vikings converted to Christianity. This happened just before the year 1000 AD and created much controversy. What happened is, some of the Vikings had converted; most had not; then some of them appealed for judgement to a highly respected thane, and he mulled over the question for about a year and then announced that the entire Viking nation ought to convert en masse. His opinion had the force of law and the pagan Vikings, much to their disgust, were obliged
                                to comply. This legal judgement led ultimately to the conversion of all Norsemen to Christianity . The Six of Vinland, though, rejected the whole business and washed their hands of their brethren in disgust. They still protect each other and each other's families and each New Year's eve they gather with their families and immortal students to remember legends of times past when all of them were heroes.

                                Following, are reports on each of the Six of Vinland, who were first identified in London during the infamous Hunt for Jack the Ripper (File#57458-1899).

                                Heimdall : in mythology, one of the Æsir and guardian of Ásgarð, their realm Heimdall is the guardian of the gods who will blow the Gjallarhorn if danger approaches
                                Asgard. His senses are so acute that he can hear the grass grow and he can see to the end of the world; he can hear a leaf fall; he also requires no sleep at all. He is moreover the guardian of the Bifrost Bridge.
                                He was the son of nine different mothers (possibly the nine daughters of Ægir, called billow maidens) and was called the White God. His hall was called Himinbjörg (Sky Mountain) and his horse was Gulltoppr (Gold-top).
                                Georges Dumézil, a French comparative philologist best known for his analysis of sovereignty and power in Proto-Indo-European religion and society, suggested that the Hindu counterpart of Heimdall was the god Dyaus, one of the eight Vasus, who reincarnated as the frame hero Bhishma in the epic Mahabharata, he and his seven brothers being born to a mortal king by the River Ganges who herself had taken on mortal form. But the seven other brothers are returned to their immortal forms by being drowned by their mother immediately after birth.

                                Among the Vinland Clan, Heimdall is a keeper of stability, the one who saned his sister Freya and helped her stop her rampages by making her realise she should be a healer before being a killer. In one thousand years of immortality, Heimdall has been the keeper of the family's house built on holy grounds where the first colony of Vinland settled. During holidays he makes frequent travels there, keeping check on the house, making sure it is ready to welcome his family when the clan gathers.

                                Belinda was in Singapore, delivering a parcel to a close associate of Mistress Wu; her duty done, she went to a spa for recreation when she sensed the presence of another one of her kind, Safiyah Khan, herself international courrier and player of the Game, who chalenged Belinda to a fight.
                                The young Shaolin agreed to the fight - her teacher taught her to stand her ground and to never be afraid of challengers - and offered to meet Safiyah around midnight, n a secluded location of her choice. Belinda went to her spa, enjoyed herself a lot - mannies, peddies, warm bath, massage, what's a girl to ask ?
                                Around midnight she met Safiyah, readying herself for the fight to come. She had been well-trained by Ginjer, herself a former student of the great May-Ling Shen, and won two challenges in the past. Her battle against Safiyah was grace and ferocity against lightning speed and brute strenght.
                                Like a crane fighting a lethal cobra, little Belinda concentrated on her opponent who found how well she leant from her teacher. But in the eand, Safiyah was the strongest and landed Belinda on her hide, quickly dispatiching her Dao sword.
                                I expected Belinda to lose her head, that night, but surprisingly, Safiyah showed mercy and let Belinda go, saying 'your teacher was a old friend of mine, she saved my head in Afghanistan. I am repaying her. Give my regards to her' And then she vanished into the night.
                                I think Belinda was glad to keep her head on her shoulders.

                                Susan Lao is the youngest of the Shaolin Three, but what she lacks in age, she fairly compensates by her devotion to her teacher and her thrills spending nights out. Yesterday night, she went on a drinking spree in the bars of San Francisco, danced until her feet fell off, drunk until she nearly passed out and finally went in search of punks to fight. She killed a dozen, part of a local street gang, 'the Devil's Own', and spent the last part of the night with her rock-band before catching some sleep, so she could be in good shape to attend her duties to Mistress Wu. That girl really has stamina !

                                Jenny was on an assignment in Bejin, to kill a defector from Ginjer Wu's posse, who had sold infomations about Wu's organsiation to a rival mobster. Johnny Mo had exiled himself to Beijing and was under the protection of the Triad.
                                Slippery Jenny somehow managed to reach to her target and shot him from range, with a rifle. Her mission done, she went to Beijing international airport to catch her plane whe she ran into three members of China Force, the governental unit in service to the Republic of China, who wanted to arrest her for the murder of a triad defector inservice to the government. Johnny Mo was a double agent, and by killing him Jenny attracted the ire of China Force
                                Ram, She-Devil and Jade Dragon are the youngest of the immortals squad, but what they lack in age, they compensate in strenght, speeds and skills.
                                Three against one, was breaking the rules of the Game, but the 'youngsters' weren't playing a game : they were legit agents proceeding to an arrest for murder. Jenny realised that, but didn't want to stay in China with both the Triad and the government wanting her head. So she fought them all, one by one.
                                Jiu-Jitsu against Ram, a knife through She-Devil's throat and losing Jade Drong in the maze of Beijing's airport. She couldn't afford three Quickenings in the middle of the airport and wanted to disappear as discreetly as possible.
                                When she heads back to San Francisco, she will have to report to her mistress that China Force wants her head and that Ginjer Wu and the Shaolin Three have new ennemies.

                                Fought and beheaded immortal Lo Pan

                                In the first decade of her life, Ginjer Wu rose from the orphaned daughter of imperished Chinese immigrants of 19th century California, forced to sell her body in a whorehouse of San Francisco, to the Queen of the opium ring of San Francsico after she killed the immortal who murdered her parents when she was barely sixteen. She spent most of her life doing menial jobs and being forced to sell her body until her First Death at the hands of a disgruntled, impotent customer in 1850. Her first teacher, was the immortal warrior May-Ling Shen who taught her of the Game, of immortality and of how a woman is forced to survive in a men-controlled world.
                                It is extraordinary to see that of the seven Chinese women who lived in San Francisco in 1850, out of a population of 4025 Chinese immigrants, two were immortals !
                                May-Ling also told Ginjer who murdered her parents : an immortal, the cruel Lo Pan, who had his fingers in every crime business of San Francisco. Prostitution, opium, racket, theft.
                                After four years of training, of travelling across the American West, Ginjer had matured into a savy combattant and decided it was time for her to have her revenge.
                                After killing her way across the criminal underground of San Francisco, Ginjer finally got to Lo Pan and challenged him to a fight, in front of his business partners. To Lo pan, being chalenged by a woman, meant a challenge to his authority, he was forced to take his sword. Lo Pan never was a savy player of the Game, he reiled on heavily-armed bodyguards to ward off opponents; but his guards were dead, he was alone to face the revengedful fury of Ginjer. His death came quickly, his Quicening ravaged his mansion.
                                From there, Ginjer took control of San Francisco Crime Underground, and has been keeping it, travelling ot China, to the Far East, posing as her daughter, grand-daughter and grand-grand-daughter every twenty years.
                                In time, she recruited immortal female bodyguards, 'the Shaolin Three', three young Chinese-American females from various Chinatowns across North America

                                Ever since she took out Donald Black Bear in 12983, Chrystle Lightning has been wreaking havok on the North American continent, killing with abandon, taregetign innocent immortals and being on the most wanted list of Ravenwood, and especially Henry of Kent and Kellistra. Both immortals hoped to restore her to sanity but had few hopes, even Jim Coltec didn’t dare approch heer as Donald Black Bear was a true scourge on humanity. Moonstar was once a good woman, but she is lost ot us, driven by her own private demons.

                                Christopher Vechio occasionally plays the Game but since he isn’t clearly follow the rules, eh tends to shoot first and ask Questions later, and if the Immortal is an aggressive challenger, a bullet through the head is enough before he takes the head and Quickening. Fortunately for those of his kind, he doesn’t hunt and kil lregularly but his method of killing could attract the ire of more tradition-oriented Immortals and then Vechio could find himself in real trouble.

                                Report on the Six of Vinland
                                15.05.2000

                                The Vikings, like other sea-rovers, are not as romantic as nineteenth-century fiction would make them out to be; neither are they exclusively the blood-thirsty ravishers depicted in the chronicles of the monks of England and Ireland. They may not have worn horned helmets,
                                but they did sail ships carved with dragons' heads and they ventured far out into the western sea in search of new lands and adventure. In about 1000 AD, Leif Eriksson (son of Erik the Red) explored the new continent, acompanied by immortals Ejnar Kanwulfsson and Sygin Fenrisdottir, the latter being later cross-referenced as Kellistra, student of the fabled Four Horsemen. For the next ten years a number of voyages were made from Greenland to the new land, which the Norselmen called "Vinland" because of the profusion of grapes that grew there. Sygin and Kanwulf settled there and created a colony that flourished, adopted several orphaned Viking children they named after Gods of Norse mythology : Eir, Freya, Thor, Heimdall, Kvasir and Balder.
                                More than one century went on before the prophecy of six immortal Vikings born from Vinland would come true. Kanwulf and Sygin's clan enlarged itself and then came the time for her brethen to leave the paradise for a much harsher world. The six children she adopted and who all turned out to be immortals spent decades discovering the North-Amercian continent before
                                leaving for the land of their ancestors toward the beginning of the 12th century.
                                The Vinland immortals had originally decided to stay in the New World when their mortal comrades all returned to Greenland and Iceland because they were disgusted when the Vikings converted to Christianity. This happened just before the year 1000 AD and created much controversy. What happened is, some of the Vikings had converted; most had not; then some of them appealed for judgement to a highly respected thane, and he mulled over the question for about a year and then announced that the entire Viking nation ought to convert en masse. His opinion had the force of law and the pagan Vikings, much to their disgust, were obliged
                                to comply. This legal judgement led ultimately to the conversion of all Norsemen to Christianity . The Six of Vinland, though, rejected the whole business and washed their hands of their brethren in disgust. They still protect each other and each other's families and each New Year's eve they gather with their families and immortal students to remember legends of times past when all of them were heroes.

                                Following, are reports on each of the Six of Vinland, who were first identified in London during the infamous Hunt for Jack the Ripper (File#57458-1899).

                                Kvasir : in mythology, God of inspiration, knowledge and beetroot juice
                                After the war between the AESIR and VANIR, all the Gods made a truce by spitting into a bowl. They stirred up the mixture and created a new God of Knowledge out of the potent mess. His name was KVASIR and he was made the most amazing diplomat to prevent further disagreements. Sadly he didn't last long as he was slaughtered by treacherous dwarves, who drained his blood, mixed it with honey and fermented it into a highly potent mead. This became known as Kvas, the Mead of Inspiration, a fiery brew the color of beetroot. Drinking it was a highly enlightening experience.

                                Villagers who were jealous of Kvasir's success with women, his hunting skills and hunting and all-out intelligence, ambushed him during a hunting trip and killed him. His mother, Sygin Fenrisdottir avenged him by killing the men after hiding her son's body during two days. She came back with him to the village where the Vinland Clan lived, pretending nothing of the unusual had happened. Kvasir is now into legal counsel, trying to settle disputes between couples between other litigations.

                                Aletha the bag lady is famous among the immortals and Watchers of New-York for not having gone further than fifty yards from her SRO in 97 years. Already a hobo by the time she suffered her first death, Aletha agreed to be trained in swordsmanship by her teacher and to carry a sword in her backpack, but that was all she wanted. All what Aletha wants is to be left alone. She didn't accept "charity" from her mentor, Ursula Katz, who wanted to give her some money and a place where to live. My assignment doesn't care about the Game, she doesn't care about immortality. Yet, she likes a lot to be alive, thank you very much. So it means that every immortal that came after her, thinking her to be an easy killl, didn't live to regret their decision. For the most part, the New-Yorker immies leave the woman alone. She hides too well and no immortal wants to take a stroll in the Bronx just to take the quickening of some bag lady.

                                Angelique Hudson was an emotional train wreck in her teens, havign been badly abused by her stepafather on the farm she grew up with, until she finally escaped and made a life for herself on the street in her teens; in adulthood she had an abusive boyfriend who was a correctional officer in the state pen of Indiana where she succesfully enrolled herself and spent hard time watching over women doing hard times. In the 1980's she was a C.O in Washington state and had been a proficient player of the Game, carefully hunting Immortals locked in prisons, bidding her time, waiting for their time of parole, killing them as soon as they left the prison's walls. Her survival instincts and sword skills were taught to her by legendary gunfighter Cubelle McWhyrter, a firebrand identified as the legendary Kellistra, student of the Four Horsemen.
                                Angelique took a lot from Cybelle, her swsord skills but also her violence, though not her moral compass : she doesn't care about mortals getting in her way, being an accomplished sexual predator picking on defenseless male or female inmates in whichever prison she worked in. Over the last 140 years she had molested, raped and grievously injured hundreds of convicts and killed a dozen male immortals that we know of, though she would never take the head of afemale immortal.
                                Go figure. She has the same slant on killing her kind as Cybelle/Kellistra. She is currently in Ossining State prison, aka SIng Sing, her latest kill was hapless Peter Hackett who was paroled in 2013 and didn’t last very long outside Ossining walls.

                                Born : 1913; Paris, France

                                Student of Henri Valjean, both immortals left Paris
                                for New Orleans, Louisiana

                                Paris saw the beginnings of an African-American community in the aftermath of World War I when about 200,000 were brought over to fight. Ninety per cent of these soldiers were from the American South. It was during this time that jazz was introduced to the French and black culture was born in Paris. African American musicians, artists, and Harlem Renaissance writers found 1920s Paris ready to embrace them with open arms. Montmartre became the center of the small community, with jazz clubs such as Le Grand Duc, Chez Florence and Bricktop's thriving in Paris. World War II brought all the fanfare to an abrupt halt. The Nazi invasion of Paris in June 1940 meant suppression of the "corrupt“ influence of jazz in the French capital and danger of imprisonment for African Americans choosing to remain in the city.
                                Most Americans, black as well as white, left Paris at this time.

                                An inheritor of both African-American and French musical cultures, Lisa Grant is a priceless member of the immortals community and ranks as one of the most talented musicians of the immortal scene. Her confrontations against the Nazis in 1943 have made her a stronger person, ready to face any opponent ready to take her carreer or life away from her. It is Henri Valjean, once a swashbuckler and womanizing rogue who brought her to new Orleans and helped her mature into the woman she is now, himself having gained an edge after witnessing the horrors of two world wars; the former Peter Pan of Rebecca Horne's line of students, became an adult and felt that he had some responsabilities toward his pupil and it is their sense of responsability that allowed him to become a good mentor to Lisa : in acting/singing business as well as in matters of the sword.

                                From the Journals of Joe Dawson, New Orleans 1978

                                I took a first class flight to New Orleans this week--end, following Liza Grant to the Quarré were she was producing herself. Everyone is expecting her show tonight, and not just mortals : there is a fair number of Immortals who appreciate good Jazz in New Orleans and there will be quite a gathering tonight, if Idare write those words. An amiable gathering, I hope. Count on Liza to tame the tiger in us all and to unite Immortals and mortals in harmony, because this is where her talent truly lies. It would be crossing a boundary for us Watchers to soicalize with out Immortals so we stay discreet, but Marie Laveau, Nick Delgado, Haresh Clay, his companion Carter, Analise Thibadeau, even Carl Robinson have gathered tonight. No known quarrels between the lot and Haresh Clay retired from the Game a long time ago. Will there be Duncan MacLeod ? If there is, we may expect trouble since he is such a hot-blooded Scot. Didn't Haresh taunt him centuries ago ? We shall see who plays castanets tonight !

                                Dancing all night on Liza Grant's magic voice, her energy like an eternal flame, lighting my young heart. I know I am but a mortal and a Watcher to boot, oath-bound, I cannot declare my love to Liza but I dream of dancing on her tunes, damn those crutches. Still, she sings liek an angel, a volcano of energy which benefits us all.
                                She plays for herself, for us too, for the love of Jazz and blues, because she has forever to do so, to train herself into becoming hte best Jazz vocalist in the world. Oh love. I never played Jazz myself but back in my youth I was good with the guitar before I got drafted. Nam took my legs but it didn't take my heart. The death of Roy was a dramatic experience for me, I loved that man and without that damn non-interference rule he would still be among us. But I had interfered, it would have been a bullet through my head and I wouldn't be enjoying Liza Grant. My heart is sore, as much as the feet of Liza's audience, and I am dreaming of her. I am dreaming of her beign the One in the end, so she can sing forever.

                                From the Chronicle of Roberta Hitchins :

                                Currently the leader of Sister Roberta's Salvation & Glory Church, Reverend Hitchins is a paranoid who suspects everyone around her to be a tool of the government, of a rival revivalist, or of Satan himself and the US NorthEast bureau has gone through six Watchers there in the last 2 1/2 years. Roberta never allowed herself to befriend a fellow immortal, for fear of being someday stabbed in the back. Of the seven immortals she has killed so far, three came after her, another one tried to reach out to her and lost her head for it, the last one taught her a few tricks of the sword before his tricks were used against him. Hitchins never trusted anybody and has decided, through religion, to make a hell of Baltimore for born-again Christians living in the area.

                                When Frances 'Firehair' Drummond killed Dominic Petros in 1860, the world gained a new immortal as a travelling young nun from a convent of Worcester was killed by a lightning bolt during the Quickening of Petros. Sister Helen, aka Helen Welles, became a student of 'Firehair' whose violence and wild tales of immortals and head-chopping scared her so much that she ran away from her teacher and went back to her convent, in hiding. Ever since, Helen has been travelling from one convent to another, always living on Holy Grounds and rarely going in the mortal world without the company of fellow mortal nuns.
                                Two decades ago, she finally made her home at Sisters of Charity, NY, under the protection of Sister Mitchell, a fellow immortal and former student of Darius.

                                When Buddy Reperton and Richie Trelawney started the shootings, Amy Ross reacted immediately and got her students out of the classroom in a hurry and got them into hiding before whipping out her cutlass ang going after the two teens; not matter how heavily-armer they were, they barely had the time to kill two more students and one teacher before facing the furious Amy who came at them charging; they suffered fatal wounds and died almost instantly. Thanks to Amy, further deaths have been prevented, but how is she going to face the media scrutinity now, I wonder.

                                1992
                                Duncan MacLeod becomes the guardian of pre-immortal Richie Ryan. Richie is nearly killed by Felicia Martins who targeted Duncan MacLeod; MacLeod defeats her but lets her go.

                                1993
                                MacLeod fights one of the most harrowing battles of his life when he takes on Grayson and is nearly killed. After finally defeating the ancient immortal, Duncan, Tessa and Richie leave for Paris.
                                After investigating Darius' murder at the hands of the rogue Watchers, and being confronted with Xavier St. Cloud, the trio spends an uneventful year in Paris, reuniting with Robert & Gina de Valicourt, until Tessa and Richie are finally killed in a mugging. Richie turns immortal.

                                1994
                                Hit with wanderlust, Richie Ryan travels to Cordoba, Barcelona, Madrid: in Cordoba. He is hunted down by Martin Hyde right back to Paris where MacLeod disposes of an old ennemy. Richie decides he never want to be hunted again and starts training in earnest.

                                1995
                                After a quiet year in Paris, MacLeod and Hugh Fitzcairn are targeted by the revengeful Kalas.
                                Richie kills his first Immortals and must leave Paris
                                In Los Angeles, Richie Ryan runs into Felicia Martins while attending the latest show of Temporal Anomaly; Felicia mistakes him for an idiot for the second time and tries to seduce him again but Richie turns the tables on her and takes her head, settling an old score with the vicious headhunter. Driven by hatred and self-loathing all her life, Felicia had nothing left when he head rolled on the floor : no friends, no lovers, only the pleasure of music - for she had talent - and of a good fight against other immortals. A tragic waste of immortality.

                                1996
                                On the road to San Francisco Richie Ryan is ambushed by Brian Cullen who reunites with him in bar of Frisco; Brian forces Richie into a fight which turn out to be the worst fight/brawl the young immortal got himself into. Richie finally wins, using his brain and takes the head of the Scot.San Francisco CA. Alec Hill finds Gerard Kragen and kills him; he runs into Richie Ryan but both immortal leave each other alone.

                                Richie, tired of getting into conflicts with other immortals travelsback to his roots, to Seattle for a change of pace where he meets 'the Messenger', aka Methos who tries to teach him peace between immortals. The disbelieving Richie Ryan patiently listens but knows better. ‘Methos’ is killed by Wilhelm Klein (aka William Cullbraith), who comes after Richie. Once again Richie is forced into a fight he wins. After having killed Brian Cullen and Klein, Richie decides to reunite with his old friend and teacher who discovers how strong and mature his student has become; although saddened by the death of Brian Cullen, he rejoices that Richie managed to keep his head on his shoulders.

                                1999
                                To celebrate his friend's 25th birthday, MacLeod takes Richie Ryan back to his roots in Glenfinnan where Richie falls for Rachel MacLeod, Duncan's cousin. Realising that he can no longer pass for a 19th years old in Paris, Richie moves to Berlin in search for new walks of life and a new language to learn.

                                The Game destroyed Na’ilah Saniyah and Lila Abu-Sitta's relationship, a love story that lasted seven hundred years until both women were so impacted with the violence of the Game they started playing : going after rapists molesting women and childnen, war profiteers selling guns to Middle Eastenr war-torn countries, slavers trafficking European women sold on the North African slave markets, pushers selling drugs to children of America. And then against players of the Game killing Immortals because There Can Be Only One. They lost themselves in the 1990's before losing each other. Today they live separate lives, and though they fled woman's persecutions in the Middle East they still have to play the Game again and again in North America and Brazil. When they faced their latest challenges, a pair of terrorist Immortals, they won but didn't recognize each other. They understood they had finally become like their ennemies and grew bitter. Na’ilah and Lila agreed it was better to part ways, since the Game had consummed the love they once felt for each other.
                                It is the true tragedy of the Game when it manages ot destroy a love story between two Immortals.

                                We suppose it had to happen someday : Richie Ryan, young immortal and mighty player of the Game took on a student of his own, a country singer by name of Crystal Ann Cash from Calgary. Richie had a devil of a time convincign the young woman that all of this was for real : her sudden return to the living when she wa pronounced dead, the bells ringing in her mind, the strange pull she felt from Richie’s presence and the wild tales of immortality as well as that nonsense about the Game and There Can Be Only One… turning out to be a mystification after all. Still she had to accept it and Richie was a nice guy, so why not ? Now she is touring Northeastern coast cities after a travel to Brazil, avoiding other immortals but sooner or later she will be confronted by one of the few remaining immortals still obsessed with the Prize and the power of the Quickening. We shall see if she is as gifted with the sword as she is with the guitar.

                                Joe Muhamad was originally born in Algeria, his parents moved in America in 1899 for a better life in Lousiana when he was in his teens. His father was a metalsmith, making beautiful works decorating inns and hostels and making good money for his wife and four children. When WWI erupted, Joe was drafted with millions of other Americans in 1917 and sent to Europe where he was hit by mortal shells on the trenches, losing both of his legs. Unhappy with his life, Joe followed in his father's footsteps, hoping to find achievement in metalworking. He spent the nex twenty years honing his skills until one night in 1939 when young robbers came into his shop looking for a stash of money had with no doubt hidden in his shop. When trying to stop the robbers, Joe was fatally shot and died. That was the end of Joe Muhamad and the beginning of one of rarest immortals to enter the Watchers'Chronicles : an handicapped man, mentored by a lengendary immortal - Marie Laveau - and taught to use a shotgun to parry off Immortals coming after him. And he has been quite apt at using his gun to fend for himself in the Game, waiting for any heahdunter foolish enough to come after an "easy target" like him.

                                He may look like a frail old man, but Elliot Harding isn’t a man to be underlooked because this is an Immortal who whent trhough the Blitz, though two wars as a battlefield doctor, helping to wounded soldiers, patching them back to health before they went back to combat. He is a hardedened, seasoned veteran and though he cannot truly stand his own against Immortals carrying sword, he had a whopper of a handgun with him, carrying it at all times, and he has good aim because he used to be an expert marksman in his youth. So far, three young Immortals tried to take him out, including a very alluring woman who wanted a sugar daddy’s Quickening, but this is no fool. When the Gathering comes, he may surprise us all.

                                Aristide Gumbel didn’t even recognize Ohane Munroe, the girl he raped in 1850 whom he didn’t recognize as an immortal, so drunk that he was on moonshine. But Ohane Munroe never forget him and swore to get to him someday. Finally she found him in Baton Rouge, the herbalist living satisfied of his immortality.
                                Ohane pretended to be an innocent young immortal while Aristide pretended to be a nice guy, not the sexual predator he truly is. When he made the moves on her, Ohane stabbed him with a poisoned dagger, and while Aristide was reeling in shock, she picked her short sword and took his head. His Quickening burnt his house down, Ohane was free from her nightmares at last.

                                An illegal immigrant from Honduras who pleaded guilty to manslaughter earlier this year 2008 will spend at least 12 years in Texas state prison. A judge today sentenced Oscar R. Flores-Chicas (aka Immortal Alejo Cadena) to 15 years in prison with the stipulation that he serve at least 85 percent of his sentence.
                                Flores-Chicas, 32, of Alpha admitted decapitating Miguel Gonzalez-Euceda after a February 2007 fight outside the victim's Phillipsburg home. Police arrested Flores-Chicas 16 days after the gruesome murder in a Houston apartment complex. At the plea hearing in April, Alejo Cadena apologized to the victim's family, telling them, "We drank a lot...and I got mad and I took his head."

                                Nine years after Amanda settled old scores with his boss, Andre Korda, and killed his friend Crysta, Raphael reinvented himself as security agent for a casino in Manaus, staying out of trouble as much as possible. One thing he learnt from Korda is that immortality spews trouble and that its better to stay on the side of the angels. So he does : Archangel Casino is the perfect place of hiding for him, and when an immortal comes for a challenge he takes his sword and chooses his ground. But that rarely happens now : what immortal can walk around with a sword those days with so many surveillance technology ?

                                Some people use music to find immortality. Claudia Jardine uses her music to forget her Immortality. When she's out on the stage, nothing matters. There is no Game, there are no Rules, no strangers with swords. Only the timelessness of the music. Off stage, she's had to make some concessions to her condition. She travels with a crack security team at all times, but then so do a number of other tempermental primadonnas, so no one has really noticed anything out of the ordinary as far as that's concerned. And finally, after years of coaxing by her friend and mentor Duncan MacLeod, she's begun to study the martial arts with a private sensei, but claims she's doing it for the stress relief and the exercise -- she's still deeply denying the reality that someday she may have to use those skills to take someone else's head before they can get hers. She tries not to think at all about that, or about her future. Instead, she loses herself in the past, in the inner worlds of Chopin, Rachmaninoff and Mozart. If the security team does its job, she'll have plenty of time to worry about that other stuff later.

                                Marie LaVeau was an illegitimate mulatto born in Saint Domingue, Haiti in 1794. Her father, Charles LaVeau, was a wealthy white planter, and her mother, Marguerite Darcantel, an African slave. Raised with Catholic teachings, she arrived in New Orleans in 1809 after a slave revolt and originally made a living as a hairdresser. She was first married in 1819 to Jacques Paris, an immortal, but he died soon after the wedding to the sword of Baron Samedi, vaudou master who turned her to immortality too and made her the vaudou pristress she is today.
                                Marie was practicing voodoo and selling charms as early as 1830 and was married again around 1835 to Louis Glapion. When a hurricane hit New 0rleans in 1895, this second Marie LaVeau was seen floating down river on a log singing voodoo songs, this was the same Marie, impersonating her daughter.

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

                                of Betsy Mitchell

                                For a disfigured immortal woman living a recluse life on the outskirts of Seattle, Elspeth Nelson certainly had a lot of love in her life : two hundred lovers, six husbands ! She must have charisma to burn, to compensate for the hideous scar marring her neck and face. It is a scar she received during her first battle against immortal Ranil Senyaka, a headhunter from Sri Lanka, with an habit of using a whip in his battles, torturing his quarries before the kill.
                                Elspeth Nelson was unfortunate enough to meet him in Sri Lanka in 1847 and fell before him in spite of the traing received from Betsy Mitchell. And yet, the strenght within her allow her kick Senyaka away and grab her sword. Senyaka lost his head after destroying a beautiful young immortal. For a time.

                                Born from English parents who settled in Colombo, Sri Lanka, the young Elspeth had the habit of fleeing the good society of Colombo to go downtown for parties, and coming home on the tip of her foot around 5 in the morning before her parents awoke from slumber. Neither her father's authority, nor the teachers, nor the nuns could prevent her from living the life she wanted. And then she died during New Year's Eve after drinking too much.
                                When Betsy Mitchell, her chaperone and friend of her mother, brought her home, she pretended everyhting was fine and secretly taught her of immortality, training her in swordfighting. Elspeth was determined to survive the Game and also to enjoy life at its fullest.

                                Although keeping her scar, Elspeth had this energy and beauty within her, this spark of life that kept her going and attracting men to her. Those who didn't run from her in horror were greatly compensated : travels around the world, a lot of love, a wonderful companion with amazing tales about world history and secret stories.
                                Sex too allowed her to keep her men : Elspeth spent fifty years in China with May-Ling Shen and Katherine in Greece, teachers who taught her the way of men and women, how they interact with each others and can please each others. This is how she became such a charismatic person to watch.

                                Another one of my disciples is Moesa, and I am rightly proud of how she turned out to be, a survivor of the Kingdom of Moab who now lives on the fringes of the immortal scene in Utah among the Mormons community,caring little about the looks of pity or scorn she gets because she cannot bear any children. God knows she has enough in her classes ! She escaped the blade of my brother Kronos at a time he was looking for me, avoiding torture, rape and death (did he know anything else ?) and the blades of several other hunters. Once a rape victim herself by Ahaziah of Ramoth-Gilerad, she spent centuries hunting him before Anatellon got to him first in Lutetia in 421. I am the one who sent a pigeon after her with a message, writing to her she could stop hunting and start healing. And healing she did, not like Cassandra (writing a mea culpa, old man?) who never stopped hunting me. My brother, my slave, hunting me for thousands of years. Now both are dead. Why do I surround my self with suchintense women, I don't know. Maybe I want to heal those women, make penance. Had I been less cruel in my young days, I wouldn't make penance so much, but then... Maesa wouldn't be here, active and healthy. Was Cassandra somehow giving me the incentive to be
                                a healer after having been a Horseman ? Better ask Sean Burns next time I visit him.

                                • Thanks for completing the North American line-ups, my friend, although you missed out the addendums for Seraphina, Madeline La Touché, Henry of Kent, Chang and Amanda. Could you post those to complete the chronicles, please...

                                  Coming up next from me, Caleb Judge, the third Sin Eater...

                                  BTW Thanks for the adjustments to the first two Sin Eaters.

                                  Cheers

                                  • I didn't post them because there are unchanged since last time I posted them. Unless you need them ?

                                    • I need them to make sure my own records match up, my friend, since it's been a few years since my chronicles were last updated. Just for completion really, if it's no trouble.

                                      Cheers

                                        Seraphina

                                        Born into a respectable Roman family, Seraphina chafed at the idea of becoming a Roman Matron. Taken to the games when she was a child, Seraphina thrilled at the spectacles. She was enthralled with the Gladiator lifestyle and with the gladiators. They were her obsession and thrill but soon going to the games was not enough- she wanted to be in them. Concerned with her preoccupation, her family arranged a marriage, hoping this would redirect her attention. They hoped wrong, one day to the horror of her family she announced that she was training to become a Gladiator. With her Gladiator lover and a pocketful of money, she changed her name, and went to one of the outer provinces to learn. She learned to fight and went from fighting in small amphitheaters to the Colliseum in Rome.
                                        Currently she is taking the cut throat tactics she learned in the Arena and has put them to good use at Sherman & White. The glass ceiling that other female stockbrokers have hit is about to be smashed to bits, and who better to do it but Seraphina. Her recent deals in Global International and Erickson have added to the company’s bottom line and added to her Swiss Bank Account.

                                        Why Madeline La Touche is considered the weakest of Henry of Kent's students is a mystery to us, and yet time and time again, Immortals have sought her out, thinking she would be an easy kill and then they would have the kudos of having taken the head of a student of the Grandmaster himself. Time and again, those Immortals have learned the depths of their mistake. Didn't they know who her teacher was? Didn't even one of them think her teacher would have prepared her? She may not be a regular player of the Game, she may seek solitude and a peaceful life away from its madness, but didn't any of those Immortals ever wonder why she didn't hide on Holy Ground? The fact is, she doesn't need to; she is more than capable of handling herself. Madeline's swordarm may not put her in the same league as the likes of May-Ling Shen, Kyra of Sparta, Frances Drummond, or the fabled Kellistra, but she is more than able to hold her own.
                                        Three headhunters found this out when she fought them to a standstill, almost losing their heads, and no less than twenty-three Immortals are now notches on her sword, nearly paralleling the intensity of Frances Drummond’s swordplay.

                                        These days, Madeline spends her time on the beautiful island of Bermuda, painting and running her successful art school at her mansion overlooking Hamilton harbour. She is visited often by her Immortal friends looking for a break away from the Game, and on occasion, Madeline visits her closest friend, Roman Alvarez, in Canada at least once a year, enjoying his outrageous flirting while giving as good as she gets, and every now and then, they go on a road trip across America hunting for Immortals preying on the weak and unwary.

                                        Long may she live,

                                        Henry of Kent

                                        Henry has just returned to LA after another fruitless attempt to track down Damon Case. Four days ago, after hearing through the grapevine that Case had been spotted in Denmark, Henry hopped on a transatlantic flight, only to get there too late. Another headless body and another trail gone cold. Just like Paris two years ago; only that time it was three dead immortals, and Case had slipped the net again. For the ultimate hunter of headhunters, the fact Case remains so elusive must be a constant source of exasperation for the immortal. Especially as it's so personal. Henry must still recall his first encounter with Case. One year after he died at Antioch and still had no idea what he was, still traumatised by his torture and eventual death at the hands of the Turks, Case came for his head. Luckily for Henry, Cleophon of Athens rode to the rescue. Back then, the Athenian was still one of the best immortal swords around. He almost took Case's head, if they hadn't been interrupted. Case slipped away and Henry became another student of Cleophon.

                                        Once the Athenian told him the truth about what he was, Henry changed. He came to believe immortality was a gift from God bestowed upon a chosen few to be savoured as a means of learning and growing in order to help mortals better understand the world. His beliefs were reinforced when Cleophon sent Henry to train with his former teacher, Achilles of Troy. Not only did Henry become an accomplished swordsman under the tutelage of the legendary immortal, but he inherited Ashe's lust for immortal life. It's also where Henry first learned about headhunters.

                                        The crusader came to believe that they were abusing their gift and were wrongfully stealing immortality from others of their kind. The crusader found another crusade. And the headhunters of the world had made a far more dangerous enemy. Henry began hunting them down as the self-appointed protector of his fellow immortals.

                                        This hasn't stopped him from enjoying the gift God gave him, and unlike other students of Cleophon, his loves have reflected the chivalric times he was brought up in; in nine centuries, he has married five mortal women and stayed with them all until they died. He has loved and lost. How has he stood the pain ? Throughout the centuries, his actions have reflected his immortal life as a hunter of dangerous foes. He has been a bounty hunter and sword for hire in Europe. In the American midwest he was a US Marshall. Watcher accounts at the time recall how he teamed up with another legendary pupil of Cleophon, Frances Drummond, herself a bounty hunter, for their epic one year pursuit of the murderous immortal outlaws Theodo of Lombardy and his protege Jonah-Lee Hawkes, which ended in New Mexico with the first recorded double-Quickening (before the more famous Duncan MacLeod-Methos double-Quickening).
                                        In the 50s, Henry was a spycatcher for MI5, and more recently an agent of Interpol. Six months ago, he answered a call from his old teacher and relocated to Los Angeles. He has killed three dangerous immortals since, including a headhuter. North America seems to have its fair share; Henry is going to be busy.

                                        From the records of the Tribunal
                                        Thursday April 6th 2002

                                        The following conversation, recorded O4.03, clued us in the origins of the elusive Chang who we discovered to be the adopted son of Ursula Katz, aka Kellistra.

                                        Cell phone ringing.

                                        "Hello"
                                        "Chang, please--?"
                                        "Yes, this is Chang. Who..."
                                        "Ah, my little one. How swiftly some forget."
                                        "Oh, hi Mother."
                                        "......" (Undecipherable)
                                        "Yes, Mother--"
                                        "--and how are you, sweetheart?"
                                        "I am fine."
                                        "I've work for you."
                                        "What ?"
                                        "You want me to (ancient Chinese dialect)...no, no...I'm hunting Anatellon, now...(Chinese dialect) .......(Undecipherable) I really can't now, you should understand..."
                                        "Chang, stop playing around and listen, I'm fast at losing patience. Or do you remember how it felt to have the flat of my hand come down on your--"
                                        (Irritated) " Oh sure... please, Mother, I'm a grown man !"
                                        "Not too old for me to tan your bottom, little boy."
                                        " I'm sorry !!" (Tiny voice, Chinese dialect).
                                        "You'd better be."
                                        " Please, forgive me."
                                        "Good. Now, listen. San Francisco. This Saturday, the Imperial Palace, presidential suite. Meet me there. By six in the evening, mind you. I've got errands for you to run.
                                        Oh, and can you bring me some dim sum from Wang Huang's ? The good shrimp ho tak ... you can't get decent Chinese anywhere in this city these days."
                                        (Subdued) "Yes, I'll come to San Francisco Saturday. It's not very far from San Diego."
                                        "Excellent! And mind your back, I don't want to have to deal with a passel of idiot Watchers and last time I visited you, you had seven of them assigned to you."
                                        (Angrily) "Watchers ? Someone is Watching me ?!"
                                        "You mean you haven't noticed? Oh my poor blind darling."
                                        (Speaks loudly in Chinese dialect). "OK, ok."
                                        "And shake those Watchers."
                                        <Heavy sigh> "If I find him, I'll..."
                                        "Them."
                                        "Oh, yes !"
                                        "And by the time I see your face, beloved, it had better have more respect on it than I hear now in your voice. Capisce ?"
                                        (Tiny voice) "Yes, Mother."
                                        "San Francisco. Saturday. Six p.m. Don't go to the wrong hotel this time."
                                        "No, I won't forget."
                                        "Better not."
                                        "Goodbye."
                                        "And bring the ho tak!"
                                        (Hangs his cell phone).

                                        The conversation was found on tape, in the backpack belonging to Tangerine Lee, Chang's Watcher who was found dead last night in a San Diego motel. She had been killed with a sharp object, a note was found in her breast pocket reading : "no more Watchers, please". A team of experienced Watchers will be located in San Francisco next Saturday, waiting for the meeting between Ursula Katz and Chang. We can only warn this team of the dangerous nature of those two immortals and wish them a safe assignment.

                                        The Ten Tigers of Canton were a group of ten Chinese martial artists from Guangdong (Canton), China who lived in the late Qing Dynasty (1644–1912). They were said to be the best fighters in southern China at the time. Much of their existence has been embellished by folk legends and stories passed down from generation to generation. All of them were immortals, mentored by Abbess Ng Mui to become supernatural heroes of China in the neverending war of good vs evil.While their stories were embellished, they were a squabbling, rag-tag band of misfits who got killed by the Game one by one until only two remained by the time of the Immortals War.
                                        Wong Ching-Hoh and his twin brother Yan-Lam fought the British forces during the Second Opium War in 1860, they became the two firt of the group to be killed by the Immortal Maiden.
                                        In 1885, Wong Kei-Ying joined the Black Flag Army during revolutionary war against the French Empire; he challenged a French soldier named François Marchette and lost his head.
                                        Lai Yan-chiu retired from the Game in Lhassa, Tibet, where he was confronted and killed by one of the group's major enemies, Immortal Maiden during the 1929 invasion of Tibet by China.
                                        Leung Kwan joined the Tongs by the early 20th century, become their most feared and trusted lieutnants, until he was killed in battle by May-Ling Shen in 1959
                                        So Chan disguised his activities as a vigilante behind a facade of permanent drunkenness and was targeted by huntress Krimkaj Chamlong in 1962
                                        So Hark-fu was one of the immortals kidnapped by Nikola Tesla's henchmen and subjected to painful electrical experiments before Tesla mercifully took his head in 1967. He had become a martial arts instructor, trying to keep the Ten Tigers legacy thriving.
                                        Chow Tai was last seen in Canada, a Lieutnant of the Canadian reserve army, training local guerillas to resist Japan Imperial army occupation. He was killed in 1944 by Matsuhiro Kanagawa.
                                        Chan Cheung-Tai, better known as Chang or Wayne Chang, became an amoral mercenary and assassin eventually joined the international group HISS before being invovled in the Immortals War. He died in 2012 against Kir Bulchyev of the Immortals of Mother Russia.
                                        Tam Chai-kwan was last seen in Cordoba, Spain, in 2012 where he fought his last battle against Radu Cozma.

                                        Amanda

                                        Amanda is a patient woman, known to bring the best out of any stray pre-immortal whose path she crosses. That's a pattern of hers. In the 12th century there were Kenny the saxon boy and a prostitute called Sarah. During Renaissance days, Isadora the daughter of an imperished family. In 1897 a silversmith. It's so like her. Or maybe is it she recognises in those defenseless immortals the famished, scarred pauper she used to be one thousand years ago.

                                        Recorded kills : None, not a player of the Game

                                        "What place is there for love when there can be only one", asked Nick Wolfe to Amanda after she shot him to death so he wouldn't die from slow-acting poison. Nick Wolfe didn't want to become immortal and resented Amanda for taking the decision in his place, thinking Evan Peyton's poison could have given him a permanent death. However, he isn't aware that immortality isn't necessarily triggered by a violent death. Aging, slow-acting poison, spoiled food do the trick too. But Nick rejected Amanda's love and support. Nick hates himself because he is in a world he cannot control : he cannot control the Game, he cannot control his Presence, warning immortals he is there. Nick cannot control his life anymore, and he tortures himself. Last time Amanda visited Nick in Vegas, the young immortal had harsh words toward his friend and sent her away; he shouldn't have done that because in the Game friends are a thing he may damn well need.

                                        • Thanks for those, my friend, much appreciated, as always!

                                          THE SIN EATER SAGA (cont...)

                                          Caleb Judge, aka The Sin Eater III

                                          Known aliases: Caleb Ambrose
                                          Notable characteristics: Psychopath; a taste for

                                          Status

                                          Roster of Immortals Status: Deceased
                                          Date: 17 Oct 1734
                                          Place: Oxford
                                          Victor: Helen Bondeville, SIS
                                          Watcher: Robert Foster

                                          Background
                                          Original cultural affiliation: English
                                          Born: 1660, Newcastle, England
                                          First death: 1690; beaten to death by the relatives
                                          of a 14 year old girl student he had groomed and had
                                          sex with
                                          First teacher: Ambrose Valance. aka The Sin Eater II
                                          Known associates: Eli Bedloe, aka The Sin Eater IV
                                          Known past associates: Ambrose Valance

                                          First recorded sighting: 1690, Newcastle.
                                          Dug up from an unmarked grave by Ambrose who told him
                                          his own sins would be forgiven if he joined his crusade to
                                          punish other sinners

                                          The third Immortal to carry the name of The Sin Eater, Caleb was, like Ambrose Valance before him, the student and apprentice of the last Sin Eater. His teacher was killed by Alfgar of Winchester in 1693 and Caleb left a calling card a week later, a corpse in a tavern to let the world know that The Sin Eater's works would continue. To avoid Richeard of Mercia and his band of Immortals, Caleb fled to Scandinavia and continued his work there.
                                          It wasn't until 41 years later that he resurfaced in Oxford as a professor at the university where, at night, he would don the skull mask and stalk the streets punishing the sinners and leaving the mark of The Sin Eater on their mutilated bodies.
                                          At this time, Helen Bondeville was on an assignment for Richeard in Oxford and recognised the signs. It took her a month to locate Caleb and watched him from afar, waiting for him to make his move. She finally confronted him as he stalked his next would-be victim, challenging Caleb, who tried to run for a nearby cemetery, but she caught up to him. The fight was brief, Helen being a more skilled swordswoman, and she put an end to the third Sin Eater.

                                          • Women carrying sword in the 18th century, odd when you think about it. How did they hide them ?
                                            And a fourth Sin Eater!

                                            Say, have you seen the Three Musketeers series from the BBC ? A latino-American Athos and a Black Porthos. I loved it.
                                            Cheers!
