  • 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

    • Great list of names, Apollo. Put my mind at work straight on this morning!

      Sapor of Corduene

      Known aliases : Saporos of Cyprus
      Notable characteristics : None
      Weapon : Thracian war sword

      Status
      Most recent base of operations : Mesopotamia
      Northwest Iraq
      Occupation : Mercenary sword, plunderer and
      occasional headhunter
      Prior occupations : Carduchoi warrior; also serving
      Zarbienus, King of Corduene, 1st century BC
      Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
      Date : 360 Shapur’s campaign against Corduene
      Place : Singara, northwest of Mosul
      Victor : Gimillu, mercenary sword in service to
      Shapur
      Watcher : Research, Middle East

      Background
      Original cultural affiliation : Mesopotamian
      Carduchoi Poeple
      Original cultural affiliation : Mesopotamian
      Carduchoi Poeple
      Born : 4th century BC; Corduene, Mesopotamia,
      present day Eastern Turkey
      First death : 301 BC, Repelling Greek troops
      crossing their country
      First teacher : Medios of Thebes
      Known past associates : Medios of Thebes
      First recorded sighting : 301 BC. Mesopotamia
      Killed and then taken as disciple of Medios of
      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.

      Enosh of Jezreel

      Known aliases : None
      Notable characteristics : None
      Weapon : Canaanite war sword
      Recorded kills : None known

      Status
      Most recent base of operations : Ugarit, present-
      day Northern Syria
      Occupation : Bodyguard of Amestrin
      Prior occupations : Disciple of Amestrin,
      Canaanite warrior
      Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
      Date : 1190 BC Destruction of Ugarit during
      Bronze Age collapse
      Place : Ugarit
      Victor : Kronos, leader of the Four Horsemen
      Watcher: Ancient Immortals Research Team

      Background
      Original cultural affiliation : Canaanaite
      Born : 15th century BC; Valley of Jezreel,
      Kingdom of Israel
      First death : Canaanite vassal under King of
      Kadesh killed in battle against forces of Pharaoh
      Thutmoses III
      First teacher : Amestrin of Ugarit
      Known associates : Amestrin of Ugarit
      Known ennemies : The Four Horsemen
      First recorded sighting : N.A. Mentioned in the
      12th Century BC Chronicles as a possible victim
      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.




      Matanbael of Bit-Istar

      Most recent base of operations : Ravansar
      County, Iran
      Occupation : Shrine keeper, located near
      Ravansar Spring, known for healing Dark
      Quickenings infected Immortals
      Prior occupations : Assyrian warrior, plunderer
      Roster of Immortals Status : Missing
      Date : 642
      Place : Ravansar County
      Victor : N.A
      Watcher : Research, Middle East

      Background
      Original cultural affiliation : Assyrian, converted to
      Muslim religion
      Born : 9h century BC; Kingdom of Bit-Istar,
      Western Zagros, present- Ravansar County, Iran
      First death : Undetermined
      First teacher : Methos
      Known associates : Methos
      Known past associates : Unknown Arab who gave
      him his turning point and changed an Assyrian
      warrior into a muslim man of peace
      First recorded sighting : 642. Ravansar County,
      Iran. Refernced as a shrine keeper by Methos
      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.

      First recorded sighting : 1306 Wales. Student of
      Katherine

      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.

      What a waste is making Enrique of his immortality, posing as a colege student and selling drugs to co-eds ! Somethimes I wonder why is a reprobate like Grimaldo given the gift of immortality. He is a waste of flesh and he doesn’t even play the Game. But sometimes his turn will come and if one of the co-eds who overdosed on the coke he sold her ever comes back from the dead, I hope she gives him his just dessert.

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.

        Student of Deoneces

        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.

        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.

        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.

        Elise Yeow went to Kenya in search for the legendary Charles Herne who went missing in the region in the 1960’s, I have an inkling she wants the Quickening of one of the more ancient of her kind. 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.

        Damascus. Found and mentored by Na’ilah

        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.

        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.

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.

        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.

        After her fifteen minutes of fame in the Baila Conmigo telenovella in which she played the lover of one of the story’s long-lost brothers during the 1980’s, Alessandra has faded in relative anonimity, avoidign cameras for fear of beign recognized as the long missing Aline Mendez. 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.

        Watcher Research,
        Department of Ancient and Modern Myths
        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.

        Watcher Bureau, South America

        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.

          • 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.

            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

              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.

              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.

                15th century BC 1 Female
                3rd century : 3 (1 female)
                5th century : 5 (2 females)
                8th century : 8 (3 females)
                9th century : 2
                10th century : 5 (2 females)

                This gig feels more and more like archaeological findings...

                First recorded sighting: 1153. Siege of Ascalon
                Found and mentored by Maximian of Ephesus

                Ambrose Valence
                Born: 1399, Oxford, Kingdom of England
                First death: 1441; Paedophile priest caught and
                hanged for abusing dozens of pre-teen boys

                I changed Valence's birthdate so as it fits with him being Boudreaux' recent apretince.

                  I hate immortals who cheat in the Game, no class. He has been hiring himself as murder-for-hire and hunts immortals in his spare time, must be change from killing polar bears.

                  Watcher Research for Nothern Europe
                  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).

                  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.

                  Found and mentored by Ginjer Wu

                  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

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.

                  with Ursula Katz, cross-identified as Kellistra

                  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.

                  correctional officer during foiled rape
                  First teacher : Cybelle McWyrter, cross-identified

                  Known ennemies : All male Immortals
                  First recorded sighting : 1875. Jeffersonville, IN
                  Found and mentored by Cybelle McWyrter

                  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.

                  American descent
                  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 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.

                  Report to the Tribunal

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.

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.

Tak kidnaps, rapes and tortures Heike before leaving her body at the door of her home. Cinderella leads the arrest of Tak's acomplices, while Richie handles the Dutch on his own fearing Heike might not handle him; this lead to a major dispute between the two lovers : Richie believes Heike didn't stand a chance against Tak while Heike claims she could have handled herself very well and that Richie undermined her self-confidence.

He trusts no one of his kind, 2. His daughter is pregnant and of course the child isn't Richie's,
                  3. He cannot stand mixed relationships between Iranian women and Westerners. Add to this tensions between communities in London three years after the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon and you get a boiling cauldron with the SIS immortals doing their best to calm everyone down.
                  Unfortunately, Sadegh won't listen to the voice of reason and challenges Richie in the middle of Trafalgar Square around midnight; Richie scores another victory but is asked by Richeard of Mercia to leave London for at least a year or two.

                  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.

                  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.

                  Found and mentored by Sunda Kastagir, posing
                  as an eastern prince during the American
                  Revolution

                  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.

                  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.

                      • 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.

                          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.

                          Madeline La Touche

                          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.

                          Chang

                          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.

                            THE SIN EATER SAGA (cont...)

                            Caleb Judge, aka The Sin Eater III

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

                            wears his former teacher's skull mask
                            Weapon: One-handed custom broadsword

                            Status
                            Most recent base of operations: Oxford, England
                            Occupation: Professor of Religious Studies,
                            Oxford University, serial killer
                            Prior occupations: Teacher
                            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!

                                Victor: Alfgar of Winchester, SIS
                                Watcher: William Gilbert

                                Background
                                Original cultural affiliation: English
                                Born: 1691, Bath, England
                                First death: 1731; committed suicide after
                                murdering his wife in a drunken rage
                                First teacher: Caleb Judge, aka The Sin Eater III
                                Known associates: Jeremiah Morse, aka The Sin
                                Eater V
                                Known past associates: Caleb Judge

                                First recorded sighting: 1731, Bath.
                                Found by Caleb and convinced he has been restored
                                to life by God to seek redemption by punishing sinners

                                Bedloe was the first of the Sin Eaters to abandon cannibalism but continued the tradition of preying on true sinners, or those he deemed true sinners. A remorseful wreck of a man who beat his beloved wife to death in a drunken rage for an imagined slight and slit his own wrists, he was mentored by Caleb Judge, who convinced him he could atone for his mistake and find redemption by following him and punishing sinners.
                                Unlike the three previous Sin Eaters, Eli had no taste for human flesh, but he had a talent for hunting and killing his targets, often stalking them for weeks, and even befriending them, before donning the skull mask and carrying out the sentence. With Eli, it was less about mutilation and more about the punishment. So good was he that in one week in May 1799, five people fell victim to the Sin Eater.
                                Once again the SIS were on the case and it was Alfgar of Winchester, responsible for killing the first Sin Eater, who made it his personal mission to hunt down his latest successor. Eli proved more elusive than his predecessors, killing six more mortals before Alfgar trapped him in his book shop and took his head. Despite the victory, Richeard of Mercia had the SIS remain vigilant, knowing that sooner or later, the skull mask would appear again.

                                Cheers

                                • Hello Apollo, thank you for the Middle East names.
                                  The Sin Eater : can you tweak around a story where one of the SIS is warped by the Quickening of one of the Sin Eaters and becomes possessed ? How many Sin Etars are there in total ?

                                  The Sin Eater saga reminds me a bit of the Halloween Franchise. Remember the first Halloween movie ? Brillant. The second one was good too. But what if the Mask killer had been several people infected by Myers 'madness over the years ?

                                  Cheers !

                                    immortals and kangaroos

                                    Kangaroo hunting is on the rise since the previous decade, more and more animals are killed for sports by trigger-happy yahoos, all led by their own private safary guide Samuel Ferguson, a Big Game hunter and player of the Game who has no troubler coming after defenceless animals. In the mid2000’s he was operating I nEastern Cape and was lucky he didn’t see the sword of Olapede Chukwu or the blade of Rodis coming down his neck. Elephants were killed for their ivory because of him. In rthe 1980’s gorillas for their pelt, in the 1990’s crocs. Now he is touring the Australian bush, but he better beware of local Immortals ready to killany Immortals harming the local fauna.

                                    BASE jumping is one of the most dangerous sports in the world but also a clever way to play the Game, choosing the sky a a permanent refuge, constantly on the move, unpredictable in his nature - who knows where he is going to land his feet next ? Nestor faces his fear of the Game by constantly playing it and with his life like contract killer Ida McNeal did with her trademark daredevil escapes. Exept that it cost her her life when she jumed off the World Trade Center's roof during the attack of 9/11. Nestor better be careful with his parachute, because next time he may be not be as lucky as he was when he landed in the middle of the Black Forest in 2012.

Trained by Amanda, Ming-na Wen did very well on the immortal scene turning her small size into and advantage against other immortals, like Kenneth and Sarah MacLaughlin before her. No one dares scoff at her, or insult her, for this his a little hellion who will never let an adult-sized immortal humiliate or abuse her the way she was in her pre-immortal days. When Amanda took her in, the cat-burglar showed her good nature, because Kenny, Sarah, Ming-na remind her of the terrorized pauper she was when Xanthia of Melitus sheltered her centuries ago. A way for Amanda to repay the kindness Xanthia had to her.

                                    Warren Cochrane found some peace in the Northern Territories of Australia, the vast spaces remind him of Scotland; there he can forget all about his previous lives : the Jocobite rising, the immortals, his wife Nancy, the murder of Andrew Donelly. When he met former slaver Theodore Canot, Warren braced himself, prepared for what was coming. But Canot didn't want a duel, just to talk. The two immortals stroke a friendship, in which they discovered they weren't alone with their sins : Canot enslaved thousand of African men, women, children; Cochrane murdered his student.
                                    Thanks to Canot, Cochrane found some peace and was able to forgive himself. It was Canot's last act of goodness on this earth : Lucy Sparks took him out two years ago for the sake of the Game. It wasn't for revenge, it wasn't for his lands, it was because There Can Be Only One. Warren mourned his friend and kept on living. He feels better now, allowing himself to live.
                                    He will never forget Nancy, nor Andrew, but at last he is at peace.

                                    Hunter Cooper is the man who inspired the character of Quint to Steven Spielberg for his movie Shark, a rugged middle-aged man with deep hatred of sharks, hiding his fears behind a veneer of bad manners and scarcasm. He has a lot of tales to tell and some of them would raise hairs on your head : how he hunted a large white shark near the Australian coral reef only to face what seemed to be a megalodon, the extinct ancestor to common sharks.
                                    Exept this one was really big. Used to face prawning players of the Game, Cooper got the scare of his life when he faced a scarred, giant-sized Russian Immortal calling himself Victor Krueger, an Immortal radiating an intense malevolent energy. Cooper fled the scene, briefly hunted by the Russian. He was lucky the Kurgan wasn’t after him this day. Nowadays Hunter stays out of the Game, safge on theq high seas ibn company of the most dangerous predators in the animal kingdom.

                                    This is a young woman of some international reputation and speculation. Much has been written about her various marriages and affairs, travelling across the global and gaining the reputation of an interantional business shark. The woman certainly got around. Good with a sword too, but not one to take the head. A shark in business and in the Game.

                                    For seventy-seven years Gaby has been living under the protection of an immortal or another, carefully choosing who she chooses as companion and never backing from a challenge by adult immortals, because this is a competitive gymnast who has outlived a lot iof immortals thanks to her acrobatic skills and use of a Viking sword with short blade. Unlike Kenneth the Saxon, she doesn’t kill undiscriminately, only those who are a threat to her well-beign and Victor Hesse has proved to be just that : a notorious pedophile, he has been living with Gabrielle for one year, and Gabrielle loved him as much as he loved her for this is still a woman inside the body of a young girl.

                                    Radu Cozma has been an international rival to Paul Kinman, same easy charm with ladies, no qualms about killing women and children with the difference he is a definite loner who wouldn’t join Helen King’s HISS organisation, statign that immortals don’t get along. That’s his philosophy but it changed when he hooked up with Ravenwood during the Immortals War as part of the Secret Daggers. Now that the Daggers have disbanded, he walks free, knowing he benefited from full-time amnisty for his past crimes, having nothing to fear from Ravenwood or from the Secret Immortals Services. Cozma lives for himself and bends over for no one, lest there is money involved.

                                    Hesse’s connection to the Red Army Faction has been found thanks to in depth investigation on Talia Bauer’s activities in Germany during the 1970’s. Hesse sold guns to the group led by the Baader-Semenhof couple and was killed during a shoot-out with police force. Talia was the one to mentored him and trained him with the sword, turning him in to a skilled fither. Hesse trains regulary, but surrounds himself with bodyguards to ward off challengers. I wonder how prawning Mad Bridget will take that one out.

                                    Found and mentored by Isadora who later killed
                                    Bridget’s husband, a towering juggernaut

                                    Most female Immortals unfortunely have a hard time in the Game. Not Bridget. She is more than happy to step up and play with the boys. Matter of fact, she hunts only male Immortals, believing that if there can be only one, it should be a woman. With her amazonian build, close-cropped hair and wielding a two handed zweihander, she is a headhunter with a chip the size of a small country on her shoulder. I feel bad for any man that gets on her bad side.

                                    The Sisters of Charity of New York is a congregation of religious women in the Catholic Church whose primary missions are education and nursing and who are dedicated in particular to the service of the poor. It is lead by immortal Marie Guillard, student of Darius, who changed her name after hearing the calling of the Church. Marie provides safe haven to any immortal knocking at her door, in exchange for handing over their sword, continuing the charitable work of Brother Paul from St. Christopher Monastery.

                                    Dyson and his entire crew

                                    Investigations on the death of Ulysses Dyson in 1849 was finally put to a definite end when Leo Kambaré of the Pouma Clan in New Caledonia proudly displayed the saber having belonged to Dyson in his home, stating to his friends that the saber belonged to a man his ancestors cook and ate. And he told the tale that when Dyson was killed, a sudden storm erupted and his ancestor was then possessed with the cunning, wit and courage of his fallen opponent. This tall tale naturally disguises the fact that an Immortal “savage” murdered and ate one of his kind. Fortunately for us, Leopold renounced his unnatural hungers a long time ago.

                                    Only recorded two kills in two hundred years, a connection with sailor Bevil Grenville (ex husband) and charisma to burn : I don’t know how many immortals she landed in her bed, maybe fifty or so, and I wagger some of them are buried in her plantation. She used to be a discreet player of the Game, that one, bidding her time, like a spider weaving her webb, waitign for the time of the Gathering. But somehow, she changed over time, retired from the Game and seldom welcome anyone in her bed. So unless she took a Quickening that did her in, she had a quick change of heart, I don’t really know.

                                    foreign immortals

                                    Maple White once spoke of a tribal leader of Polynesia she married in 1874, sparks between the two immortals were instantaneous and they spent a decade together before Maple rejoined the outside world. The years she spent with him were among her best, such calm away from the faaires of the mortal world and from other Immortals. In the 1970’s she briefly reunited with him durign the Maori protest movement and found her husband a changed man : the once peaceful immortal was angry and bitter, he no longer wanted to wait for the recognition of Maoris and was ready to fight like a devil. Maple felt sorry for him. The fre between herself and her ex was gone.

What a little fools : Lowai has been killing others of his kind for centuries, keeping their heads as mementos, he has a dozen, all reduced and mummmyfied. Quite a collection for an immortal staying out of the Game !

                                      As for the Sin Eater, i have a story planned for the sixth Sin Eater that involves deception, a student of Allegra Chambers and former SIS member corrupted into doing his bidding, a vendetta by Chambers that will lead to the creation of another Sin Eater and a vow by Richeard of Mercia to hunt them to extinction. Oh and the eighth Sin Eater is still out there, waiting....

                                      BTW Since i have no records of beheadings post-Immortals War, could you post the chronicles of the deceased Immortals killed since. I know it's too many to post in one go, so could you start with all the deaths up to the end of 2012? Thanks...

                                      Cheers
                                      Apollo1

                                        mentored by Jasper Abraham

                                        Gustavo Nicolich can never attend the yearly gathering of the 1972 Andes flight survivors, who reunite in celebration of the lives they were given by God and in memory of their departed friends and relatives. If Gustavio appeared out of the blue, who would belive him, unless he passed himself as his own son ? But it would be like lying to his friends and would awaken too many painful memories, best forgotten.
                                        So each year, he has a drink to their memory, on his own. He was sojourning in Lima, writign an update on his Peru travel guide when he was challenged and killed by David Bautista.

                                        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.

                                        Born : 1610, Avalon Colony Newfoundland
                                        First death : 1628, Indian attack on Avalon
                                        First teacher : Ava Delate
                                        Known associates : Angelica Monroe, Annabelle
                                        Monroe
                                        Known past associates : Ava Delate
                                        First recorded sighting : 1628 Acadia
                                        Found and mentored by Ava Delate

                                        The Monroe family makes up a strange trio of immortals : looking at them, one would thing the youngest of them is Luke given his aparent age when in truth is the oldest. Luke was born in modern-day Newfoundland when the first settles set foot on the North American continent. Luke was among them, a pre-immortal child who didn't life beyond his teenage years when his hometwon was attacked by a tribe of indians, its population massacred with Luke waking up to find himself among his friends and family taken away from him. Luke thought he had survived to tale the tale and wandered for weeks until he arrived to Acadia where he met Ava Delate who taught him of his immortality.

                                        Luke spent the next ten years in Nova Scotia maturing into a fine immortal, honing his carpentry skills and turning into a fine swordsman until he found two young children - two girls - orphaned after their parents died in a freak accident. Luke adopted those girls, Annabelle and Angelica, but as sisters rather than daughters, feeling that someday they would outgrow him - leading the three of them into an awkward situation. And also, he didn't feel confident enough to take on the role of a father.

                                        When Annabelle and Angelica grew old enough, Luke told them his secret and also of the life that awaited them. He gave them e choice : grow old naturally, or stage a First Death at their prime, knowing that the youngest they were, the more chances they had of surviving an attack from an agressive immortal.

                                        Luke's sisters said yes and drank a form of painless poison that gently put them to sleep. Then they were reborn, immortals, and so started the ballad of the Monroe Family who spent two centuries living in Canada and then on the Pacific Northwest, hiring themselves as carpenters and cooks, and all manners of trades that societal changes could allow them.

                                        • Thanks for the chronicles from 2012, my friend.

                                          Born: 1742, Norfolk, England
                                          First death: 1793; parish rector killed by husband
                                          of female congregation member he seduced
                                          First teacher: Eli Bedloe, The Sin Eater IV
                                          Known associates: Absalom Finch, The Sin Eater VI
                                          Known past associates: Eli Bedloe

                                          First recorded sighting: 1794, Norfolk
                                          Found by Eli drowning his sorrows in a tavern, convinced
                                          him he was restored to life to atone for his sins

                                          When eight bodies showed up in Liverpool over four weeks in August 1853 with marks gouged into their flesh in Latin, Richeard of Mercia recognised the signature of the Sin Eater and knew another Immortal had taken up the skull mask. Letters were sent to the local constabulary claiming responsibility for the murders and that the Sin Eater had chosen the city because it was a hotbed of "sin and decadence".

                                          At this time, Raimond d'Amboise was based in the city and immediately set to the task of tracking the Sin Eater down. Four more bodies were found at the dockyards over two weeks and d'Amboise, posing as an Inspector from Manchester, joined the police investigation and was soon able to get on the trail of the Sin Eater, but three more victims were claimed before d'Amboise found the Sin Eater's lair in an abandoned rectory, finally confronting Jeremiah Morse, at this time known as Father Julian Miller. Morse, like a cornered rat, fought like a demon, but d'Amboise soon brought him to his knees and struck off his head.

                                          Knowing there is always another apprentice, d'Amboise scoured the city, but the successor had already eluded him, little realising at the time that the next Immortal to wear the skull mask would be the most dangerous and devious of all of them.

                                          Known past associates: None

                                          First recorded sighting: 1819, Manchester
                                          Found and mentored by Allegra Chambers, at this time
                                          observing the march on behalf of the SIS who helped
                                          orchestrate it. He was later recruited into the SIS.

                                          Baxter's impulsiveness and recklessness was always his greatest weakness. Despite everything Allegra tried to teach him, he was always a loose cannon in the ranks of the SIS. For years after she took him under her wing, Baxter had a crush on Allegra but she always kept him at arm's length. At some point in his 139 years though, the two did sleep together, although it meant more to him than it did to Allegra, who has after all, slept with hundreds of men in her three hundred years. It was clear he still held some resentment toward her; perfect fodder for Absalom Finch, the sixth Sin Eater, the most manipulative and brilliant of all his predecessors.

                                          When the killings began in the summer of 1936, the SIS recognised the handiwork of the Sin Eater. Richeard of Mercia had all of the SIS hunting for the newest incarnation, but he was more elusive than they had thought. A chess grandmaster in his pre-immortal life and a psychologist, he knew how to strategize and his charismatic personality would prove to be decisive.

                                          Allegra and Thomas picked up a trail after another murder in the East End, but while Allegra wanted to inform Richeard and the others, her hot-headed student was determined to make a name for himself and went off hunting for Finch himself.

                                          Unknown to Allegra, he walked into a trap laid by Finch and his apprentice Keaton Bartlett. He was captured and spent the next six weeks being tortured and brainwashed by Finch while Allegra and the other SIS Immortals turned London upside down searching for their missing comrade. Finch convinced Thomas that Allegra and the SIS were using him, that they were responsible for his crimes and he was merely a scapegoat so Richeard and his cohorts could gain political capital. Finch's dominant personality easily subsumed that of Thomas Baxter.

                                          Thomas was released and when Allegra found him wandering in Hyde Park in the middle of the night, he accused her of toying with him and using him and the SIS of betraying him. Despite Allegra's pleas, Thomas drew his sword and attacked her. Unable to reason with him, Allegra was forced to defend herself and in the end had no choice but to take his head. She sobbed as the Quickening filled her.

                                          Grief stricken and consumed by rage, she swore to avenge his death by hunting down and killing the Sin Eater without mercy.

                                          • Good story around Allegra and her student. Her mistake was sleeping with him and underestimating how fragile he was. And Allegra is left with her guilt.

                                            Three Immortals in the chronicles whose origins are set in the War of the Roses, a bit too coincidental...

                                            • Yes, unfortunately, Thomas had no idea that for someone like Allegra who'd lived for three centuries, sex would just be sex. He had an old fashioned idea of what intimacy meant for women, not realising that many women, like men, can have sex just for fun without it having to mean anything. It's especially true for Immortal women.

                                              In the meantime, here are more names for you, all from the 8th century:

                                              Bahjat of Tahert (Imamate of Tahert) - male
                                              Jabr of Safi (Barghawara Confederacy) - male
                                              Marid of Idrisid - male
                                              Rahul of Sarir - male
                                              Smerdis of Khwarezm - male

She has been playing the Game with vigor since her First Death but the taste of the Quickening is sour, hurtful and giving her few satisfaction. Sure it gives her raw power and a modicum of extended knowledges from her opponents memories but she would trade her place anytime with the life of a mortal woman able to give birth to children of her own, to be able to feel a baby’ soft skin against her breast, to be able to love and trust her man and to give him all the children he wants. She cannot do that and that’s why life tastes of lemons to her.

                                                Each year, some white guy in conservative suit from the Westerner world comes to Kalanga's house and give him top money for his skills at playing ball. Each time, Ze turns the offer down, stating that he cares little about fame and money and that he wants to use his skills to entertain the people from his hometown. Ze is well aware of the scrutinity he would get exposed to and wants to avoid it

                                                at all cost.

                                                Where other immortals of the Southeastern states died in the Immortals War, Django and Deondra survived by stying hidden, having understood that one the immortal scene if one wants to live long and prosper, one has to be discreet and no stand among the main cast. So Django and Deondra hve been spending the better parts of the 20th century and early 21st in small towns, moving from one place to others, evading hte attentions of headhunters like Howard Crowley, Peter Kanis and Tyler king. The tall, dark/blode, nasty types in trenchcoat. When one would come around, it was time to move on.There was not a problem a trailer car wouldn't solve and so they lived, like bohemians, constantly on the road, on the lookout for those preying on their kind, always alert. They didn't become paranoid, however : they were like an old couple who had been through the Blitzkrieg in their youth and were ready for anything. during the War, they found an old Indian burial site in the Evergladesand stayed there for one year, until the immortal grapevine assured them all the villains had bit the dust.
                                                Django and Deondra are now in Tampa, FL, but their sixth sense is always on alert.

                                                Litonya met Kellistra during the California Gold Rush in 1848, at this time the ancient discple of Methos was living under the monicker of Cybele McWyrther. The two women hit it off instantly, especially since women in the California Gold rush were scarce, though they played an important part : a few women were already digging gold with their kids, others were prostitutes settling there to
                                                ‘accommodate’ the needs of single men.
                                                There were women from any ehtnic background and social tatus possible, all with different motives for attending the gold rush.Kellistra wanted to make some money and to hunt a few immortal men, Litonya just wanted to seize the opportunity of getting rich quick. The two women became fast friend, Kellistra aknowleging in Litonya an ancient immortal who had been taught of the Game and immortality by a Spaniard immortal woman and had a hard tiome accepting the realities of the Game. Kellistra toild her the Game was played in Europe and other parts of the world for the last two thousand years nd that she indeed needed to embrace it, or lose her head. And Litonya embraced it, playing it often and keeping her head on her shoulders.

No one knows who trained Raphael after his First Death but he proved to be competent with a sword against self-righteous Steven Keane during the revolt against the government of Papua; the fight was Inconclusive, Raphael choosing to let Keane go, telling him war was over. The Papuan immortal led an unassuming life until 2013 when his immortality was found by his fellow villagers. Their reaction was a swift as it was merciless: they butchered him and decapitated him.
                                                Raphael expected his death would come from a fellow immortal, but not from the people he knew for the past two decades.

                                                The Tasmanian Devil tried to put the fire to the Tower of London after setting fires in Carnaby Street, Regency Park and Picadilly, touching to the heart of the former British Empire : London. The SIS investigated the matter after two dozen civilians were killed in the space of three months, only to found the serial arsonist was himself a former victim of Britain’s hegemony on a remote part of the world. Although undestanting of the Parlewar people suffering, the SIS immortals couldn’t condone the loss of civilians and hunted John Irons to his lair. After a brief battle, Eadwulf took the devil out but couldn’t bring himself to kill him, after all it was England’s fault if he was driven by such rage. Instead, he was sent ot SeanBurn’s Black Friar’s asylum for treatment.

                                                Breakout at Black Friar ! Under the command of two of the most dangerous inmates kept under Carolyn Mortimer's watch, Jacob Kell and Alfar of Winchester, five extremely dangerous Immortals have escaped from their confinement, with eight other Immortals who pose as much risk to the Immortal and mortals communities due to their varying degrees of madness. The attached files describe who those Immortals are to be approached with extreme caution : Alfgar of Winchester, Jennifer De Chaillot, Jacob Kell , Loretta Lynn, Kevin MacDougall, Karolina Olin.
                                                Potentially dangerous : Abel Attwood, Ugolin Ferrant, Charmian, Berg Doepker.
                                                The following notes on Kell's followers have been compiled by field Watchers and by Sylvia Krause, Sean Burns' Watcher :
                                                - Abel Attwood, already mentally unstable, could permamently settle for the personality of the lethal Cain Attwood and thus become a formidfable weapon for Kell.
                                                - Charmian could become Kell's new concubine and be entranced into playing hte Game on his behalf.
                                                - Berg Doepker, a fragile being prompt to violent anger could become a dangerous killer in the hands of Kell.
                                                - Ugolin Ferrant, even as foolish as he is, can become a savy player if led by Kell.

                                                Kevin MacDougall, one of the Black Friar escapees, made his way to Edimburgh where he was met by Robert Henderson of the SIS. In one week, MacTaggert killed three people unfortunate enought to croos his path, including a truck driver while hitch-hiking, a constable and a deli clerk while looking for easy money. He also raped and beat a hooker nearly to death before being found by Henderson.The fight took a lot of energy from Henderson who finally took MacTaggert out. But something must have happened to Henderson : after killing MacTaggert, he started staking and killing two prostitutes before Andrew MacNair tried to stop his friend's rampage. Andrew McNair died against Henderson's blade

                                                Kevin MacDougall, one of the Black Friar escapees, made his way to Edimburgh where he was met by Robert Henderson of the SIS. In one week, MacTaggert killed three people unfortunate enought to croos his path, including a truck driver while hitch-hiking, a constable and a deli clerk while looking for easy money. He also raped and beat a hooker nearly to death before being found by Henderson.The fight took a lot of energy from Henderson who finally took MacTaggert out. But something must have happened to Henderson : after killing MacTaggert, he started staking and killing two prostitutes before Andrew MacNair tried to stop his friend's rampage. Andrew McNair died against Henderson's blade

                                                Being a mother myself I can understand how painful it must be for an immortal woman to not be able to carry her own chidren, to see them grow, to nurture them with love. Although there is quite a number of immortal women who had success with raising children they adopted. Loretta Lynn gave in the dark side of motherhood : she raised the children she adopted not to see them happy, but to sasiate herself with the 'joys' of being a miother. She turned motherhood into a travesty, a macabre farce. She adopted dozens of pre-immortal children from across the world and before they became too difficult to control, when they reached puberty.. she murdered them and abandoned them. Leaving scores of pubescent kids to the mercy of adult immortals who killed them or exploited them. I know none of those children who evolved into healthy and productive citizens. I am glad the madwoman is locked up indefinitely, but sometimes if I had the strenght, I would bring justice to the unfortunates whose lives she destroyed.

                                                Loretta Lynn, the killer of immortal children, has been foud by the Secret Immortals Society. Unfortunately, Loretta turned out more violent thant we expected and lashed out at Helen Bondeville of the SIS who had no choice but to ‘sanction’ the madwoman indifinitely.

                                                It can be written that in his last hour on earth, man of church Liam Riley fought like a devil (so to speak) against Jacob Kell. Kell was determined to get the head of Riley but Riley was a fierce fighter of the Game in his youth, and it showed. Unfortunately, Kell cheated and with help from his remaining henchmen took the old priest out of the Game.

                                                From the records of the Tribunal :

                                                In the past, Father Riley has been dubbed "cheap copy of Darius", nothing could be farther from the truth. Well, it is true that like Darius he was a great warrior who became a man of peace after experiencing an epiphany, but those were different circumstances : Darius received a light Quickening, Riley took an oath to serve God and never hurt innocent lives again; Darius lived a sheltered life on holy grounds, Riley tavelled often across the globe, doing his best to teach peaceul ways of living to tormented souls, both mortals and immortals. Darius did cast away his sword, Riley didn't because he understands a man of peace still needs the arts of war in times of need. Another difference : Darius is resting forever at the bottom of the Seine in Paris, turned into a handful of ashes; Riley is enjoying a good life in Dublin among the immortal community, doing his berst to quell the tensions existing between the Catholics
                                                and Proddies of Dublin.

                                                Student of Jessica who found out Abel was
                                                incurably insane

                                                Jessica Larkin didn't quite know what do do with her protege and his split personality. As Abel he was a lamb, barely functional as a person, as Cain he was a savage drunk, robber, cheater, opportunist killer and occasional rapist. If she killed Cain, she killed the charming Abel and risked taking a Dark Quickening - not that she really believed in that old urban legend. She wrote to her old teacher,Ceordwyn, who wrote back that if she felt travelling back to the old continent, there was an ancient doctor of the mind who could help.
                                                Ever since, Abel & Cain have been under the care of Sean Burns, although they escaped his notice twice in the past, taking alternate identities. Fortunately, Cain lacked utterdiscretion and always was dragged back to Burns' asylum.

                                                The following notes on Kell's followers have been compiled by field Watchers and by Sylvia Krause, Sean Burns' Watcher :

                                                - Abel Attwood, already mentally unstable, could permamently settle for the personality of the lethal Cain Attwood and thus become a

                                                formidfable weapon for Kell.
                                                - Charmian could become Kell's new concubine and be entranced into playing hte Game on his behalf.
                                                - Berg Doepker, a fragile being prompt to violent anger could become a dangerous killer in the hands of Kell.
                                                - Ugolin Ferrant, even as foolish as he is, can become a savy player if led by Kell.

                                                We supposed Jacob Kell and his surviving followers would target Liam Riley, a lifelong ennemy of Kell but this time, the surviving immortals of Ireland stood ready : coming from other part of the island came Seamus of Athlone, Etain of the Second Look and her student, youngish Paddy Bell whom no one would give a decade in the Game. Remember Boyer ? Never underestimate a computer geek. Combined with the might of Lang Quing, China's Little Dragon, Kell's group didn't stand a chance. Etain of the Second Look's powers allow her to anticipate an opponent's moves during a fight, Paddy learnt all the tricks of the sword with mortal teachers and Internet, Seamus of Athlone found his fire back and Lang Quing, no surprise, was the one to take on Jacob Kell.

                                                Egypt. Found by Sit-hathor Iunet, identified as an
                                                immortal but clearly not as the actual Cleopatra

                                                The immortal pretending to Cleopatra was actually Cleopatra's handmaiden, she was mentored by Nefertiri when she poisoned herself after her mistress' suicide and briefly stayed on the immortal scene before disappearing by the time of the birth of Christ. She was never heard from again and was to be an urban legend, likely to be anotheirdentity of Nefertiri herself. Until she challenged Sit-Hathro Iunet in the Valley of the Kings in 1943, claming to be Cleopatra, back from the dead to reign upon Egypt and restore it to power.
                                                Sit-Hathor was old enough to have known the actual Cleopatra and knew the woman was delluded; she tried to help but couldn't do much until she finally travelled with her to England where she entrusted her to the care of Doctor Burns. The fact that she claimed Mement-Ra was his master clue us in the brainwashing she must have received from the ancient wizard and from Nefertiri.

                                                First recorded sighting : 1945. Brandenburg,
                                                Germany. Found by Sean Burns, at this time
                                                attenting Nuremberg trials of Nazi dignitaries

                                                Push him and he will snap. That's the best way to describe Berg Doepker. Frankly I do not known how he got out of the madhouse he was locked in when the Nazi doctors decided to end his life as well as the lives of thousands other people who in their mind 'weren't fit to live‘.
                                                He must have been protected by an immortal who couldn't condone the actions of the Nazis.
                                                A miracle that he could live this long. Burns is forced to keep him in relative isolation because no one dares adress him : he misunderstands everything you tell him for an agression, cannot comprehend the meaning of immortality and while he make s the difference between right and wrong, he has been manipulated by Alfgar of Worcester into murdering an orderlie in a attempt to free Alfgar. Because of this, he is a danger to us all.

                                                she had died; devolopped a super-hero fantasy
                                                because of her father’s lessons

                                                The story of Jennifer reminds me of an old episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in which the show's main protagonist his bitten by a demon which inject her a fluid that messes her mind hu completely. She finds herself in a psychiatric ward where doctors try to explin to her that the nightmarish and unplausible world of Sunnydale is adelluded fantasy her mid produced after she was raped. The episodes offers the possibility that the entire show is the fantasy of crazed Buffy Summers.After having been raped, killed and later mentored by her fantasy writer father, Jennifer became a self-delluded heroin living in a fatasy world where she is the heroin and the immortals arond her are villains she must kill. She became over the years an extremly skilled assassin, a superb hand-to-hand combatant and expert at computer hacking in her search for 'immortal villains' to kill. She killed innocent mortals on fourteen occasions and was nearly killed by actual players of the Game. Dangerous to others, to herself and to the immortals' anonimity she has been locked in Black Friar for the better part of ten years.

                                                The chronicle of Alfgar of Worcester and his companion Jennifer De Chaillot ends with a bullet fired from Raymond d’Amboise's rifle at the top of a building in Greater London, where the two immortal killers lived in seclusion. Was it the itnent of Alfgar to take revenge on the Secret Immortals Society ? We shall never know. The SIS took no chance on Alfgar, not wantign the risk of beign infected with his Dark Quickening. As for Jennifer De Chaillot, she had begun stalking the streets, killing off people in the mistaken notion they were demons of some kind coming after her head. The unfortunate Jennifer suffered from 'Bonnie & Clyde Syndrom', also known as Hybristophilia, a paraphilia in which sexual arousal, facilitation, and attainment of orgasm are responsive to and contingent upon being with a partner known to have committed an outrage, cheating, lying, known infidelities or crime, such as rape, murder, or armed
                                                robbery. Jennifer developped a strong attachment to Alfgar during their time together in Black Friar and Alfgar made good use of it, enjoying the notion of an immortal girl "in love" with him. Not unlike Buffy Summers in love with a vampire serial killer.
                                                Eventually, Alfgar got tired of her and disposed of her immortal-style, her beheaded body to be found in the Thames by mortals, thus

                                                cluing the SIS on their ennemy's whereabouts.

                                                A raving madman, Kell plays in the same team as Charles Manson, Jim Jones, David Koresh and other sect leaders who believe they have a God-given power over men and that they shouyld rule over the world until kingdom come. On three separate occasions he surrounded hismelf with acourt ofimpressionable, young immortals whom he sent on suicide missions against other immortals, calling it his crusade against the forces of darkness. His holy calling. Like Manson who believed in an impending apocalyptic race war, Kell wanted to trigger the Gathering with as many immortal casualties as possible. during Renaissance days, when he had that brief, unpleasant dispute with Connor MacLeod over the death of the Scot's foster mother; during the dawn of the industrialized age when he tried to prevent the comeing of a new era and finally in the 1960's when he gathered young hippies around him and lauched them into
                                                a murder spree to rival Charles Manson's in intensity. Since no immortal want his Quickening, he has ben confined in isolation at Black Friar and his forbidden even the most remote of contact with his fellow immortals. Needless to say, when the Immortals War erupted, Kell was howling at the moon like the crazy bug he is.

                                                We supposed Jacob Kell and his surviving followers would target Liam Riley, a lifelong ennemy of Kell but this time, the surviving immortals of Ireland stood ready : coming from other part of the island came Seamus of Athlone, Etain of the Second Look and her student, youngish Paddy Bell whom no one would give a decade in the Game. Remember Boyer ? Never underestimate a computer geek. Combined with the might of Lang Quing, China's Little Dragon, Kell's group didn't stand a chance. Etain of the Second Look's powers allow her to anticipate an opponent's moves during a fight, Paddy learnt all the tricks of the sword with mortal teachers and Internet, Seamus of Athlone found his fire back and Lang Quing, no surprise, was the one to take on Jacob Kell.

                                                Then something happened. So many Immortals tired of the endless wars and bloodshed, so many sought solitude on Holy Ground. The Saxon was present at the liberation of the Dachau concentration camp in 1944. The horrors he witnessed did intense damage to his psyche : his mind snapped. He saw what degradations mortal men could inflict on each other, the genocide of the Jews was the culmination of all the torment and slaughter he had seen and inflicted upon others. He hunted the murdereous Coronus of Persia who was commanding Dachau and had fled as the American troops were arriving; Alfgar foudn the Persian immortalon the outskirts of Vienna in his home where he was preparing his departure from Europe to South America. After killing Coronus, Alfgar underwent a sudden transformation in character, a rare occurence dubbed 'Dark Quickening' in immortal circles and among Watchers. His mind snapped and he became a dark parody of his own self. For him, in his new, twisted mind, mortal life became cheap - mortals no longer deserved to live; the manner of their deaths fascinated him, he became obsessed. Alfgar transformed from heroic warrior to sadistic serial killer, finding new and imaginative ways to inflict pain and death on mortals. He left Europe in 1945 and relocated to New York and began his new life as a serial killer, snatching people off the streets, torturing them to death, and then dismembering
                                                and dumping their bodies.
                                                From 1946 to 1954, he killed fourteen mortals. When word reached the SIS of what Alfgar was doing, Richeard of Mercia and Raimond d'Amboise hunted him down. Alfgar fought Richeard and would have lost his head, but he escaped by diving into the Hudson River.
                                                He reaapeared in Chicago in 1965 as a doctor and this time was found by the Combined Immortals of America who captured the madman and sent him over to the British isles under guard. Richeard of Mercia decided to hand him over to Sean Burns for treatment, in the hope of ridding him from his madness and to avoid being infected with the Dark Quickening. To no avail. Alfgar still resides at Black Friar to this day, one of the more dangerous elements of Sean Burns' proteges.

                                                The chronicle of Alfgar of Worcester and his companion Jennifer De Chaillot ends with a bullet fired from Raymond d’Amboise's rifle at the top of a building in Greater London, where the two immortal killers lived in seclusion. Was it the itnent of Alfgar to take revenge on the Secret Immortals Society ? We shall never know. The SIS took no chance on Alfgar, not wanting the risk of beign infected with his Dark Quickening. As for Jennifer De Chaillot, she had begun stalking the streets, killing off people in the mistaken notion they were demons of some kind coming after her head. The unfortunate Jennifer suffered from 'Bonnie & Clyde Syndrom', also known as Hybristophilia, a paraphilia in which sexual arousal, facilitation, and attainment of orgasm are responsive to and contingent upon being with a partner known to have committed an outrage, cheating, lying, known infidelities or crime, such as rape, murder, or armed
                                                robbery. Jennifer developped a strong attachment to Alfgar during their time together in Black Friar and Alfgar made good use of it,enjoying the notion of an immortal girl "in love" with him. Not unlike Buffy Summers in love with a vampire serial killer.
                                                Eventually, Alfgar got tired of her and disposed of her immortal-style, her beheaded body to be found in the Thames by mortals, thus cluing the SIS on their ennemy's whereabouts.

                                                • Thanks for the 2013 chronicles, my friend. I have to see i really enjoyed the story of the Black Friar breakout and the final fate of Alfgar of Winchester. A tragic end for one of the founders of the SIS alongside Richeard of Mercia. Also loved the story of Andrew McNair and Robert Henderson and the Dark Quickening.

                                                  The SIS did not have a good 2013! Lol

                                                    Hunted and killed by Xavier St.Cloud

                                                    From the Records of the Tribunal :

                                                    During the mid-17th century, Xavier St.Cloud was followed on the Northern coast of Africa from Morocco to Algeria where he challenged and killed immortal poet Hamza el-Kahir in 1653. Two months before, he killed three immortals from Tahert in such a savage way that words from their wanton murder came to the ears of Hamza who spent the next three years in fear of the Moorish headhunter.
                                                    Those immortals were Tarik ibn Ziad and his two immortal wives, Leila ibn Falla and Karima of Algiers. Whatever bits of information we could gather about them, from Xavier's chronicle and mortal records from 17th century Algeria, give us a sparse chronicle for the trio of husband and wives.
                                                    Tarik ibn Ziad was a wealthy merchant of Tahert, an important member of the community who gave to the poor, helped build bridges and houses and exported wine and oil to the four corners of Algeria. He met his first wife, Leila ibn Falla in 1647 and married Karima after finding her 1652 during a business venture in Algiers. The two women were treated like mortal Arab women by their husbands : barely allowed to go out, dressing with veils when out of their house, speaking to no other men than Tarik and never allowed to touch a sword let alone to carry one. Tarik kept his women with a short leash, relishing the pleasure of having two immortal wives forever, probably having convinced them that he was the ony one who could protect them from headhunters.
                                                    When Xavier St.Cloud rode into town, he made sure to destroy Tarik's little world and to put and end to his fantasy.
                                                    He attacked Tarik with the rage burning inside of him, mocking his incompetence with a sword and scoffing at Karima and Leila, and killed him - he was still in his prime at this time, not yet the coward he would be known as by the turn of the 19th century. When Xavier was done savoring Tarik's Quickening, he hunted his widows who had started running and caught them on the road from Tahert

                                                    encounter with Seim Ubadah

                                                    Few datas have been collected about Samman Sha’ban between the 8th century and the 18th century, if only that he seem to be a serious player of the Game who, in 1745, sought the legendary Brian Cullen whom he heard was trying to rest in Tunisia, tired of the the incessant wars between immortals. Samman didn’t care about Cullen’s state of mind, he wanted to play. Cullen first turned him down, but Samman started targeting Cullen’s friends, his lovers and went so far as burning his house down. Cullen finally took hios sword and fought again, nearly losing the fight. In the end, Brian prevailed but you could see in his eye how he hated the Banu immortal for the way he destroyed his tranquility in Tunis.
