  • Roman Alvarez needs to be a bit more flawed as a character, he is too perfect in my opinion. Unless his weakness be in his taste for women, which Swenja and Lootje managed to play on.

    Fausta De Rosa, Paul Furio
    First recorded sighting : 1200. Republic of Venice
    Captured by Sarah’s pirate crew, saved from rape
    and slavery by Sarah

    They say like mother like daughter, with Sarah d’Abbeville and Ciecherella it is like teacher lik student. Ciecherella has become the exact duplicate of Sarah, becoming like her a highwaywoman, a pirate ship captain, a player of the Game and in recent years a theatrical producer. Sarah was disappointed that Ciecherella chose to pattern herself after her and felt that there should be only one like her, but Ciecherella is proud of her achievements and never understood the frustration she saw in her mentor’s eyes.
    A hot-blooded Immortal, Ciecherella differentiates herself from her teacher only by name and it is her predatory nature that will cost her her pretty head in the next few years before even the start of the final Gathering.

    First recorded sighting : 1503. Florence, Italy
    Modelling for Leonardo Da Vinci, encounter with
    Machiavelli who wanted to recruit Michaela in his
    Court of Beauties

    Michaela Monaldi has been impersonating Mona Lisa for centuries anf few Immortals can resist her beauty and enigmatic smile. Truth be told, it would take an Immortal with no heart to come after Mana Lisa’s pretty head and in four hundred years Mona met her fair share of cutthroahts and killers who came after her pretty head. So far so good, she survived against all odds. This is not just a pretty head but also a wicked blade with more than one trick up her sleeves. Tricks she picked after one of her friend, cat-burglar Amanda who lived though eleven centures of Immortality. The Borgias, Murder Inc. in New-York, HISS, all deadly snakes who came after her but Machiavelli taught her very well and in the games of love, sex, politics and art she has become a true master. Not just a pretty head, I tell you !

    First recorded sighting : 1854. Province of Perugia
    Found and mentored by Bonafemina D’Elia

    The soul of a leader, a natural one in time when women had to prove themselves tougher than men in combat. She was tough as nail and braver than a hundred men. She led guerillas tactics agaisnt German batalions with a squad of women disguised as male soldiers, suddently appearing out of nowhere, killing veryone in sight, leaving one survivor to tale tales of scary-looking devils and then disappearing in a puff of smoke. Not bad for a semi-litterate village woman from Perugia. Her battle against Iman Fasil nearly did her in because of too much self-confidence but this is a lesson she learnt well and has been teaching her follwoers that the head standing above the water is the one that gets chopped off, explaning her tactic of moving silently like shadows, striking Germans from behind.

      Original cultural affiliation : Iraqi
      Born : 1780; Karbala, Ottoman Iraq
      First death : 1802, during Wahhabi sack of

      First recorded sighting : 1804. Karbala, Iraq
      Found and mentored by Jamal Labdouni and the
      Swords of Allah

      The only ISIL / ESA operative still unaccounted for is Sameh Hadad who disappeared in November 2016 during the Battle of Aleppo. She may have been killed by Hazeem al Bachrim or Carter Wellan who operated in Syria at that time unless Deoneces and Kyra finally got to her. Samh was an ardent follower of the ESA and a zealous disciple of Najia El Khalej who infected the yougn Immortal with her hatred of the Western World. Between the end of the 19th century and the 1960’s she was running her own network of freedom fighters and terrorists in countries of the Maghreb – Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria – and killed scores of offciials of the ciolonial army of France. Only once she was captured in Algeria, in 1962; raped, tortured and finally killed by a French officer, captain Jean-Marie Le Pen, who became the president of the French National Front in later decades. The bombing of Le Pen’s flat and nearly eradication of his family in the 1970’s was originally attributed to Ingrid Henning, but it was her responsibility though she failed to kill her tormentor. In recent decades she manufactured bombs for the ESA during their reign of terror in the 1970's and joined the Kurdish freedom fighters in the 1990's, eventually expelled because of too estreme tactical maneuvers involving explosive-rigged children.
      2014 saw her join ISIL, financing the Immortals led by Omar Matoub who also hunted and killed their way across the MiddleEast and Western European countries.

      Waitavira Tjambiru was part of a small family of Herrero nomads who lived in the beginning of the 20th century and disappeared during the Herrero massacre led by Ernst Daimler between 1904 and 1908. Only Waitavira survived ot present times, his family remains at lage, its present fate unknown. None of the Himba clans accounted for in Namibia present the marks of Immortality and besides, they are constantly on the move so it would be hard to keep track os Waitavira lost family. Either the Game killed them all or they are waiting in the shadows for the time of the Gathering.

        First recorded sighting : 1804, Hausa Sate.
        During invasion of Hausaby the Fulani, witnessed
        the fight between Bashir and Sankara Babba-Ladé

        In 1900, the conquest of Southern Nigeria saw the involvement of the SIS who witnessed the savagery of the white men against local tribesmen deemed inferior by the all-mighty, all-knowing British Empire. Bashir and Selim Ibn Khalid led resistance agaisnt the invaders and captured a battalion of British servicemen and decided to punish them for the murder and rape of local village men and women, torturing them to death before hanging them on a tree. The death triggered an outcry of anger and indignation in England, fueled an out-o-control war in Nigeria between the SIS-led Englishmen and the Hausa warriors. Eventually England assertted control of the Hausa state, but peace needed its rpice : the heads of the Ibn Khalid brothers who were confronted by Eadwulf and Richeard of Mercia. The battle was a fierce one, Sghair M’Barek taught his dsiciples well, but Richeard and Eadwulf proved better, more experienced fighters because of the more frequent battles they fought against Immortals in Europe. A bitter victory for the two Immortals who realised the damage caused in Nigeria by the Empire they so faithfully served.

        Update :

        The Dark Quickenign travelled all the way from Chion Iwajima, to Frederika Toth, from Toth to Toshio Nakayata and then to Keiko Watanabe now a ruthless killer and vandalizer. Gone is the valued champion of the Game, this is now a crazed murderer no Immortal in Japan dares to kill, for fear of being infected with her madness. News travel fast in Japan and the sh-devil is hunting again after having killed two innocent Immortals last year.

        Watcher : Makiko Inaba

        Background
        Original cultural affiliation : Japanese
        Born : 1701; Tokugawa Shogunate, Japan
        First death : 1720; Brothel whore poisoned by
        jealous rivals
        First teacher : Hattori Hanzo

        Known past associates : Matsuhiro Kanagawa
        Known ennemies : Flameshadow, Hattori Hanzo,
        Kenshiro Tatsuya
        First recorded sighting : 1720. Yoshiwara Brothel,
        Edo, today Tokyo. brothel courtesan/prostitute,
        servicing Hattori Hanzo

        The rivalry between Kenshiro Tatsuya and Rion Tajashima ended with Rion’s death by the blade of the Tokyo “bug” who took the Game at heart, while Rion saw Immortality as means to satisfy her ambitions to rule the criminal underground after three hundred years of serving one criminal mastermind or another, among whom the infamous Matsuhiro Kanagawa. With Kanagawa’s death she felt free to live her immorality as she saw fit, but the Game is still present even after the end of the Immortals War and in Kenshiro she found the one male she couldn’t defeat. How so, I wonder. Is it because she loved him in some twisted fashion and saw in the Bug the Immortal she couldn’t face for fear of losign him forever if she killed him ? Love and hate are two sides of the same coin and when Rion flipped the coin, it landed on the hate side. Shame really, because together the Bug and the Hellions could have been a force to be reckoned with during the final days of the Gathering.

          Robert Castelli accepted the Game, the Immortality and never left hatred drive him against Maghrebi immortals after the Pied-Noir were forcibly relocated to France’s metropilitan cities.When the Swords of Allah struck Western Europe, he made himself discreet and didn’t join the ranks of the French National Front, nor did he hook up with the immortal nostalgics who wanted to resurrect the Knights of Charlemagne. Fantism wasn’t the answer he said to them, they laughed tio his face. “Good luck ! they said, we shall se how you do when one of the bastards come after you”. Castelli hid very well and finally reunited with his roots in Algiers where he runs a little business, passing himself as a writer of historical romance until the Game caught up with him in the person of Sid’Ahmed Taya, Muslim Arab. A touch of irony considering how Castelly made peace with his ghosts and a ghost from his past eventually killed him.

          She is a genius that one ! With a computer and graphics she was able to predict the fall of the African continent from famine and AIDS epidemic one hundred years from now. That certainly did something to our morale which was already down. Thank you very much, Danielle ! Sometimes I wonder why she is wasting her time with us peasants instead of moving to a more "civilised" continent; she ought to go to the States, with her numbers and laptop, she could show the Americans how much long have the States to live before dividing themselves into squabbling factions !

          Danielle Foccart investigated the internet scam devolopped by Myriam Kanye over the years and tried to put it down, but Kanye suspected an immortal was on her trails and tracked down Foccart to her lair, using her web resources. The fight was brief, Foccart was better at math than at fencing.

          The horrors of gang rape and of the war in Congo reminds Tantini Kahindu of the wildlife in Africa : untamed, savage, destrying all beauti and innocence in this world. Six years after being ravaged by Hutu soldiers, her village destroyed for futile reasons, Tantini has found a new home in the Augustine convent maintained by immortal Beatriz Kimpa Vita. She studies, trains with the sword, learns about the vast world outside so that when she feels ready, she can leave Congo for good and make a new life for herself, hoping to keepr her nightmares away forever. This is agood person, a young woman scared and scarred but who, under proper guidance, will find her way on the Immortals scene and maybe in the Game.

          Luis Inferno came after Gabriela de Savedra, a formidable woman with an intense personality, one he wanted to challenge. Was he wrong ! Gabriela is prepared to fight her man no matter the weapons and skills he has been honing over the centuries and this was a woman who did a lucrative career as a professional wrestler during the mid-Nineties, pitting her strenght against the likes of Lyta, Beth Phoenix or the Bella Twins.
          Luis Inferno fought bravely but was overmatched in the end.

          For Marc Mariano it was a difficult task to put Argentina people in front of the sordid past of slave trade but not impossible, after all the Afro-Argentinas weren’t born in Latin America, they had been victims of deportation and massacres as much as the Jews in Europe. Mark worked hard and made a lot of ennemies among people who ddn’t want to be remembered. In September 2015, David Bautista came after Mariano and the Afro-Argetnines lost their voice on the net.

          Luis Inferno tried his acrobatic and wresting skills against Georgina Gracie’s jiu-jitsu moves and after a harrowing fight, as much for himself as it was for Georgina, the Latin immortal won. Gracie was a disciple of an oriental immortal and survivied on the immortal scene for ninety years before being taken out of the Game.
          Luis Inferno fights fair : he only comes after immortals he knows are able to fend for themselves and won’t prove to be easy kills, that’s a sense of honor from him but still : a good woman is dead when se bore the hope the Game had ended with the death of Mement-Ra in Egypt.

          Amanda warned Frank to stay clear from Nick Wolfe and Brennan did, not seeing the point of a confrontation with an ancient Immortal like Amanda who could easily overmatch him. He ran like a coward and queitly exited Paris for Canada where he was operating until his death by the harpoon of Keenainak, master hunter.
          He was wanted by the Secret Immortals Services for his past associations with Annie Devlin and the IRA, and if Amanda or Keenainak hadn’t killed him, well, it would have been someone from the SIS to be sure.

          Fjola Gottidatir has been avoiding the Game by being a flight attendant ever since comemrcial flights started in the 1950's. No Immortal is crazy enough to challenge an Immortal on a crowded plane or in the middle of an airport. At least in theory. Fjola survived for four centuries and a half on the Immortal scene and she's had her dfare share of kills, but she wants to rest now, like the rest of the Kanwulfson Clan which she joined when she married Heimdall Kanwulfsson. But time have changed by this beginnign of the 21st century and who knows how many Immortal terrorists are there, ready to put a bomb in a plane to target an Immortal ? Can Fjola survive an airplane crash ?

          Re: Hackett's Sentence

          You owe me 50 bucks the judge just sentenced Pete to 3 to 5 years. We got Theo Wishnower hired on as a guard at the prison so there is no problem. Theo's just reported that the prison psychiatrist had been called into talk to Pete. The shrink feels that the reason that Pete keeps getting arrested is because subconciously he is afraid of the outside world. I mean come on nobody could be this stupid to keep getting caught : Hackett has been running from the world of the Game for the past four hundred years, after having been hunted by others of his kind. He nearly got killed by successively Antonius Kalas at St. Christopher, Peter Kanis, Kenneth, was betrayed by Nell Fagin and sold by Amanda to the police in the 1930's. He cannot even trust himself to hold a sword. The guy's a wreck. But he doesn't need a prison term, just therapy from Doctor Burns.
          When he is released, I hope for his sake he will find the courage to board a plane for Europe.

          There is a bit of the Kenyan warriors in Raphael Osewe when it comes to facing Immortals in the Game, he does it using tactics used by guerillas agaisnt British regiments in the 19th century and has been doing very well. Against a classroom fully of unruly children in need of care and disipline, it takes a combination of skills and discipline and he he not afraid to face yougn delinquents untlike some of his colleagues. With younger kids in Boston, he is more at peace than he was in the Bronx sicne they come from upp classes andhe can take better care of small classes. And he doesn’t need to bring a tribal spear in class to put the fear of God into them!

          It's a Watcher dream to have one's assignment as manager of a club whose clientele is entirely made up of immortals. Anna certainly always get what she wants : ten years ago, when she decided to make her dream of an immortal club come true, I was sceptical about that project ever succeeding. Watcher HQ didn't give it much a chance, and some of Anna's friends warned her of the risks immortals might take by meeting each other in such a place, even if built on Holy Ground. Turns out "The Valhalla" works wonders : it is the perfect place for immortals to relax and unwind, to enjoy each other's company and exchange news about friends or ennemies without having to worry about getting their heads chopped off. The place is located in the center town of Seattle, opens at 10 PM until 6 AM, and is heard about through the immortals' grapewine; it is not to be found in the Yellow Pages and it works so that it strongly discourages mortals to come in.

          Anna doesn't make the distinction between "good guys" or "bad guys" : everyone has to let their swords and assorted weapons at the entrance and is remembered the place has been built on Holy Ground. If an immortal or two gets quarrelsome,she "invites" him (or her) to go and play outside. The drinks and food are the best an immortal has to offer, the service is great : mortal staff aware of the nature of "The Valhalla" 's clientele who know how to keep their mouths shut, particularly since they are privy to extraordinaire tales of immortality to make my Watcher historians and researchers pale with envy.
          A lot of immortals have been regulars here; I work as the barmaid, which means that I hear a lot of stories, rumors that might be or not be true :

          - Sulieman al Rashid al Tanisi took a head he shouldn't have, the quickening completely destroyed his psyche.
          A hero is dead, replaced with a practicioner of dark magic.
          - There was a reunion of ancient immortals on the top of the Empire State Building last year, all former students of Methos. They included Ishtar of Erch, ancient Babylonian goddess.
          - An immortal was captured in 1929, decapitated, and had gruesome experiments performed on his head (how the hell do they know that, I wonder...)
          - A joke on dearly departed Hugh Fitzcairn : his ego lives on forever !
          - Asterix the Gaul, is based on the adventures of real immortals who lived one thousand years ago in a Gallic village.
          -There is an organisation of mortals outside preying on immortals : they come out of the shadows, kidnap their target and take his head. His or her quickening gets lost forever. (Jesus, they know about the Hunters ! Only fair, after all...)
          - The Kurgan cried like a little girl when he got the shit kicked out of him by an immortal woman named Kay Murdstone. Now I don't know wether that's true or now. Kay must have been a terrifying woman to actually make the Kurgan cry...

          Well, most of this the Watchers know, the immortals are just exchanging news, but sometimes I hear more intriguing stuff :

          - There was until the early Nineties an organisation of immortals secretly ruling America from behind, since the dawn of the constitution, in 1789.
          - Near Paris is an holy spring where insane immortals can get healed, their madness wiped clean from them.
          - There are people among the immortal community who have personal memories of the sabertooth tiger, the cave bears and of megatheriums. Yeah, right !
          - Methos has proofs of the existence of a human civilisation predating the Great Lizards... ??!!
          - Immortals are born from angels who impregnate immortal women. (Okay, Elvis was very drunk tonight...)

          See what I mean ? By the way, Anna knows I am a Watcher. I know she is an immortal and I know she runs an immortal club. We agreed to keep each other's secrets and everything's fine...

          Merry new year !

          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.

          From the Records of the Tribunal :

          Flameshadow, naming himself as such because he is like the shadow of a flame in a fire place : flickering, vivd, quick, uncatchable and hiding the lethal nature of the forces from which it originates. Born a descendant of Ronin, the most promising kabuki actor of his generation, Flameshadow was murdered by a jealous rival who destroyed his ascending carrer and let him loose in the violent world of immortality. Mentored by the greatest kabuki actress of Japan, Izumo no Onuki, Tome became a scintillating, verbal actor able to blend in any character he impersonated and also became a wizard of the sword, even outmatching his teacher. After the death of Izumo by the sword of Matsuhiro Kanagawa - who also gained a fierce ennemy, Flameshadow started travelling across Japan, gathering actors and actresses like himself and created the Dragonhead Acting Company which has been lasting for the past four centuries.
          The Dragonhead's present troupe is made up of the descendants of Gozen's old friends who are aware of his immortality. They serve him, they work for him, in exchange of the protection he has been offering to their ancestries over the past centuries. And naturally, Flameshadow lives in the hope of finding the murderer of his teacher, Matsuhiro Kanagawa, who has been constantly eluding him for the past four hundred years...

          To be added to the Chronicles of Hideo Tanaka, Flameshadow, Fujita Isai.

          Barely one week after Hideo Tanaka took out Kiem Sun of the Game, the Bushido warrior and his associates - Flameshadow in Yokohama and Fujita Isai in Tokyo - were attacked in their homes by, respectively, Nariko Genji, Ojiwara Mito and Sanjoi Ogai. The three immortals didn't bother with respecting the rules of the Game : this was an assassination contract - on who's payroll is another mystery - and they had not time for the luxury of rules. Each of the three Ninjas was escorted by a dozen of genin - including those operating overseas.
          Thanks to the wonders of cell-phones, help was soon on the way : the six immortals combining the Kawasai Clan helped the three immortals fight off the mortal genin - wiping out most of the Yasujiro Clan in the process : Ijiro and Shun Kawasai in Tokyo with Okada Iso and Tanaka Sinbei; Kawakami Gnsai and Kirino Toshiaki in Yokohama.

          Found and mentored by Nasreddin

          Between 1958 and 1961, Syria entered a brief union with Egypt, which was terminated by a military coup in Syria. Syria was under Emergency Law from 1963 to 2011, effectively suspending most constitutional protections for citizens, and its system of government is considered to be non-democratic. Bashar al-Assad has been president since 2000. Since March 2011, an uprising against the government of Assad, considered an extension of the events of the Arab spring, has thrown a significant part of the country into armed conflict. As of July 15, 2012, Syria is effectively in a state of civil war; the most recent bombing which wiped out several dignitaries of al-Assad's regimen was caused by a self-styled freedom fighter and immortal, Nabil al-Alawi, a cat-burglar mentored by Nasreddin Hoca in the 19th century and thought long dead, killed by one of the headhunters roaming the Western Asia.
          Alawi re-appeared last year and helped trigger the uprising against Assad no longer a Christian but a Sunni Muslim. His position in the Game and in the Immortals War has been unclear, we do not know what his agenda is : hero wishing to free his people, or religious fundamentalist fighting in the name of Allah ? What we know, is that his actions helped trigger a chain of events leading to the death of 3000 civilians and the exile of thousands others.

          Watcher Research, Western Asia

          The attempts to find a solution to the conflict began in late 2011, when the Arab League launched two initiatives, but without much success. On 30 October 2015, further talks started in Vienna involving officials from the US, the EU, Russia, China and various regional actors such as Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Turkey and, for the first time, Iran. To give peace a chance, Sofiya Boklova, BMR, targeted Nabil El Awali, fanatical about his hatred for the Western world and who threatened the peace talks.

          If a Muslim like Nasir who fights in the name of the Djihad is killed by a woman, his soul won’t go to Allah’s paradise to be reunited with the 70 virgins. Nasir Djaballah was hunted and challenged by Ruth Bat-Seraph, a woman and a Jew ! Imagine that. The look of terror on Nasir’s face was priceless, proff it need be that ISIL’s fighters are cowards. No virgins for Nasir then and one less Daesh Qimmortal to worry about.

          Chris Ironside thought he was going to live forever by simply changing places now and then and avoiding the company of other immortals. He forgot one thing : to thrive in immortality, one has to live in anonimity. Whatever happened to ‘living many secret lives’, one of the cardinal rules of immortality . Danny Cimoli was a prime example of it, ran down by a local immortal of Las Vegas after his five minutes of fame. Ironside posed as the Immortal Ironside because of his ability to stay impervious to wounds, to the astonishment of the film producers hiring him. Not very discreet, Chris was hunted down and killed by Mad Bridget when she was vacationing in New Zealand. Shame.

          Winston was born a slave and was killed by British soldiers who murdered his family during the represals of 1884 in Jamaica. After that, he became a fearsome adversay for the colons, posing a a vengeful spirit. By the turn of the century, Winston left the island and landed in New Orleans where he became a Voodoo cultist under the guidance of Baron Samedi, a houngan and fellow immortal who taught him of his true nature and of the Game. Winston lived in New Orleans another twenty years until he moved to the black continent, hiring himself to petty warlords and dictators as merc, using his immortality and voodoo knowledge to forge a rep for himself. Then, in 1944, he met up with Grayson and Callestina in North Africa who hired him to do their ‘dirty laundry’ : assassinations and enforcement.

          The SIS’s own explosive expert, Allegra Chambers investigated a string of terrorist attacks from a gang of bombmakers making dozens of victims in the centertown of Manchester where only recently she took out the ringleader of a sex-slave operation and also an Immortal. This time the ringleader also turned out to be an Immortal mercenary working for the Jamaican underground of London with links to ISIL. It seems Winston Mobay became a Muslim and had his mind turned over by the Caliphate of Iran, triggerred several attacks between London, Leeds, Birmingham and Manchester. The SIS was on the call and it was Allegra who had to take the Jamaican out of the Game he played on 27 June after the three successive attacks on London this same months.

          Omar Matoub re-appeared on the chessboard, so to speak, and took out Anne DeBrabant. One the best underestimated swords of Netherlands fell before the Muslim's raging determination to be the one. After survivign the Immortal War, Anne expected to at last live a long, peaceful life but should have know better : Immortals can ever know peace, it seems, because the Game seems to be the only one thing to give a meaning to their violent existence on earth.

          From the Records of the Tribunal/Ravenwood
          21 December 2013

          One year after the Immortals War, after the dust has cleared and the dramatic takeover of the Watchers by Ravenwood, a census was made on the current population of immortals, worldwide, made of active immortals and inactive immortals (read : living on Holy Grounds).

          Anne DeBrabant survived the war and is alive in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Juliet, Mariotta and Emily Rochia left London and went back to Switzerland, although we believe wanderlust may hit those three travelling girls again. Jean-Pierre d'Albertville, Andre de Florac and Malcus of Ephesus also returned to the canton of Zurich, with funds from Ravenwood, determined to build St. Christopher back from the cinder, like the legendary Phoenix.

          Roland the noble warrior taught Anne how to survive, how to find her way in the Game and to stop underestimatingher own strenght in a world where being a woman amounted to nothing and where an immortal woman had few chances to survive the Game. Anne became the strong woman she is now only because her husband trusted her inner strenght and loved her enough to see the brave fighterr she would become someday. Alas, his teachings were cut short by that Englis monk, Case, and Anne survived alone, trusting few immortal men, if any, participating in the Game only when forced to. She now lives an unassuming lfe in Rotterdam, away from the Game, but hope that someday she will have the opportunity of facing her husband's killer so that she can avenge his death.

          You want to know everything there is to know about Terence Coventry? Just sit back, he'll be glad to tell you all about it. But I hope you have a year or two. There is no subject in the world Coventry would rather expound upon in greater detail than Terence Coventry. You'll hear it all two or three times -- and probably never the same way twice. The kings, the quests, the troubadors, the princesses (in much more lurid detail than necessary, I assure you now). No wonder Carolyn left him -- it was probably just to get a moment's peace and quiet!

          Omar Matoub spent two years running from Kyra and Deoneces of Sparta after the Eternal Swords of Allah were destroyed by the two Spartan warriors. In 1992 he was found in Rome, a place were he hid, preparing the Jihad against Occidental immmortals but was found again, and nearly killed by Kyra. He escaped with his life, his small group of mortal followers dismantled by Kyra and Deoneces.
          In 2011, the Immortal War broke out. Omar spent the two years of the war proving weapons and informations to the Muslim immortals who targeted innocent immortals everywheren and especially in London. The Secret Daggers couldn't find him, he is with no doubt in a place of hiding in the Sultanate of Daesh plotting the demise of more immortals.

          Since November 2015's killings in Paris; Omar Matoub has been working withg three Jihadist immortals like himself, including a former disciple of Mossane Nkobé, indiscrimnately killing Westerner immortals and murdering civilians with bombs. Ravenwood is on the lookout for him, the two Spartans are coming the cities of Europe searching for him, with help from Kashta of Nubia and Sit-Hathor Iunet, overseeing immortals activities from Brussels, Belgium.

          To the Tribunal. 02.09.2000

          Report on the African Water Snakes

          The so-called African Water-Snakes are four immortals of youthful appearance, all recruited by Mossane GasiraKnobe from Afrocentric origins, who specialize in political assassinationandare constantly on the move in the four corners of the African continents. Like the snakes they have named themselves after, those are slippery and very dangerous immortalswho had an habit overr the past century of killing their Watchers. They obviously know about us andare prone to leaving our agents in dark alley, or in hotel rooms with notes pinned to their bodies in the likeof "no more Watchers please!"

          Enclosed in this report, find recent pictures of those "youngsters" with their vital stats and ethnic origins.

          - Haidar Zidane : born Egyptian and strong as an ox, his adopted family originally moved from Cairo to Algiers in 1942. He was killed during a boxing tournament by an enraged opponent. Haidar spent two long years alone in the desert before Gasira rescued him and told him of his nature. Gasira kicked his misogynist temperament out of him several times before helping him reach his potential: he is a gifted student. Ambitious, he would like to be the leader of the pack when Gasira is away. But Abeni won't let him. Among the Water-Snakes, his codename is "Desert Black Snake"

          • Thanks for the latest chronicles, my friend. Once again very much appreciated.

            Re: Roman Alvarez. Yeah, he may have come across as too perfect when he was initially developed, but i reckon his flaw is his love for women. He simply refused to fight female Immortals at his best, his explanation was, "How can i deprive the world of its most beautiful creation? The sight of a naked woman is God's most precious gift to man. I cannot deprive myself of this gift!" Hence, his demise to Swenja Baatz was, unfortunately, inevitable.
            If you could, could you find three female Immortals who may have crossed his path that he would have inconclusive fights against, almost losing his head on each occasion because he didn't have the stomach for killing them?

            Cheers

              Update

              The Immortal women Nezetta of San Marino and Guerina of Benevento have been conclusively cross-identified as past identities of immortal Lucretia Garibladi (B: 529 BC). In 1503 Lucretia was living as a catholic nun in the convent of San Marino during the city’s occupation by Cesare Borgia where she evaded the attention of Pascal Chaussende, always on the lookout for an Immortal woman to use as pawn in the Game, in 1797 she lived as a Jewish woman married to a rabbi of the Venetian Jewish ghetto and went missing when the armies of Napoleon Bonaparte occupied the city, belived killed by French soldier De Margelasse.
              Hot-blooded Lucretia once had a tumultuous afffair with Hugh Fitzcairn in 1503 in Milan and with Sunda Kastagir twenty years later in Venice when the Ethiopian was known as "the Moor of Venice".

              conflict against Appius Lepidus Baro

              Njeza of Qabala was a woman who worked hard to gain the respect of her male companions in the mortal world and of her male opponents in the Game, she wasn’t supposed to fall by the sword of a religious, supersticious upstart like Kismet Necdet but she did. Necdet only fought powerful women in the Game and came after the Caucasian Immortal. He put little effort in his challenge knowing well a woman like her would always answer the call for a fight. After all warlike Immortals do little else and the Game is what gives a sense to their violent lives.
              Qabala has been cross-identified as a past disciple of Kellistra, the legendary disciple of Methos and of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, she should have been able to take out Kismet in minutes. Was she tired of her long life, of the neverending fights ? Did she seize the opportunity for a suicide by combat ?
              We shall never know. What we know is she went gracefully to her fate but gave Kismet a fight worthy of his quest for powerful female warriors.

              The demons who kept Artaynta company may have been Immortals, possibly the Four Horsemen with their costumes, wild masks and facial paintings, described as Immortal superior beings in ancient chronicles.
              One wonder what kind of woman was Artaynta to have such hold on Kronos, Methos, Silas and Caspian, four savage men who didn’t bow before any woman. Did she have that fire in her that pleased Kronos when he first met Kellistra ? Kronos and his men only respected violence and savagery, and those two women had a violence fire burning brightly in them, enough to impress the Horsemen.

              First teacher : Taher Ibn Hamed Al Jaber
              Known past associates : Eternal Swords of Allah, Darius, Hsien-Tsiang, Hamza el Kahir
              First recorded sighting : 1578. Saudi Arabia
              Disciple of Taher ibn Hamed and Jamal Laboudni

              Mohsen Ibn Rida-Siraj deserted the Swords of Allah in 1643 but Jamal Labouni accepted no desertion and hunted down the Islamic scholar during the capture of Mecca by the Saudi state and though his final fate is unknown, it does not look good to the observant Watcher who studied the chronicles of Labdouni and his cohorts. Mohsen studied the Quran under Hamza el Kahir, the words of Christ under Darius, Buddhism under Hsien-Tsiang and the Talmud with Avram Mordecai to reach the conclusion that God exist udner diverse shapes and that there are thousands of ways to love Allah (or Christ, or Buddha) and that hatred isn’t the answer to the existence of Christians in MiddleEast. Only tolerance and acceptance of other people’s customs and religious beliefs. As far as the Game was concerned, Mohsen avoided it and found the strenght to forgive Xavier St. Cloud for the death of Hamza, taught forgiveness by Darius.
              The man of war who wreaked havok with the Swords of Allah disappeared decades before the Watchers lost his trace and it is our hope that he still lives out there, or at least that he had a peaceful life in the last two hundred years.

              • Another good set of chronicles, my friend. Well thought out.

                Meanwhile, here's that adjusted chronicle i promised. Could you help filling in the blanks, please?

                Doeyen Coolssens

                Known aliases: Dirk Carlsen, Douglas Cole

                Most recent base of operations: Liverpool,
                England
                Occupation: Smuggler & would-be crime boss
                Prior occupations: Privateer, sailor
                Roster of Immortals Status: Deceased
                Date: 31 Aug 1968
                Place: Liverpool
                Victor: Aldrich Monk
                Watcher: Harvey Tiller

                Original cultural affiliation: Dutch
                Born: 1608, Den Haas, Republic of the Seven
                Netherlands
                First death: 1639; Battle of the Downs, English
                Channel, fighting for Lieutenant-Admiral Maarten
                Tromp in his defeat of the Spanish navy
                First teacher: ?

                He over-reached himself this time. He thought he could take on the great Aldrich Monk and the Hellfire Club. Idiot. He had a nice set-up, smuggling stolen artefacts and black market goods for the Club. But then he decided he could smuggle the hard stuff; cocaine and heroin, ad make a tidy side profit.
                But the Hellfire Club have a rule: no drugs. Blackmail, extortion, gambling, prostitution, fraud, but absolutely not drugs. So when Monk found out what Coolssens was doing, he issued a warning. But Coolssens didn't listen. He'd been hiring muscle down at the docks for months, carving out a private empire of his own down there. He thought they couldn't touch him. He even had his men fire-bomb a Hellfire Club gambling den on William Brown Street to send his own message. It didn't work.
                The Hellfire Club have important people in their pockets. Police, local councillors, enough power to eat away at Coolssens' little empire, until Aldrich Monk decided to take matters into his own hands and confronted the Dutch Immortal at the docks. Coolssens really had no chance in a sword fight with Monk and met his end on his knees on an abandoned warehouse floor.

                Harvey Tiller,
                31 August 1968

                • Good historical research on that one, but I already have several Dutch Immortals born In the 17th century, and only one born in the 19th century. It would fit Doeyen Coolsens better, imo. Cheers !

                  • "An immortal was captured in 1929, decapitated, and had gruesome experiments performed on his head (how the hell do they know that, I wonder...)" Hahaha, me too.

                    Did I miss Apollo's response to your question, Gardner, about why no Immortals have been born recently? Or is that still on the table?

                      I can't remember what Apollo answered, Bystander, but it is still open to debate. Let's say there need to be a final gathering and that more immortal births would prevent it from eve happening.

                  • Okay, my friend, I've made adjustments to Coolssens' stats:

                    Born: 1803, Den Haag, Batavian Republic, French
                    Empire
                    First death: 1831; Dutch soldier under King William I during
                    Ten Days' Campaign, invasion of Flanders by the United
                    Kingdom of the Netherlands, Belgian Revolution.

                    Not a sailor anymore!
                    Still need the blanks filled in if you could....

                    Cheers

                      Great Arab Revolt, World War I theater of
                      operations, in conflict against Sharuk Aminedi

                      Dania of Amman first appears on Watcher records in a frenzied fight against Sharuq Aminedi in 1918, showing an habit of taunting her target before the kill, but the fight was interrupted by mortals durign the Great Arab Revolt on 1918 and Dania lost an opportunity for a kill. In the last hundred years she was seen targeting male Immortals, weakening their morale by coming after their loved ones, and then taking them out, young or old, mighty or weak, sparing female Immortals. Psychological analysis ofher behavior and fightign patterns tend to prove she has different personalities, acquiring traits from Immortals she kills (see Coltec Chronicle and Karolina Olin Chronicle for references); wether this be the result of a Dark Quickening or sexual abuse suffered durign childhood is unknown to us, but she does seem to despise all men, mortals or Immortals, and this isn’t a woman whe want to see among the contestants of the Final Gathering.

                      Original cultural affiliation : Palestinian
                      Born : 270; Hebron, West Bank Palestine
                      First death : 300; Killed in panic-triggered
                      stampede following earthquake
                      First teacher : Ahaziah of Ramoth-Gilead

                      Witnessed the killing of Constantine of Ephesus
                      by Ahaziah of Gilead

                      Boaz of Hebron was a disciple of Ahaziah of Ramoth Gilead and had but contempt for the woman who dared to challenge him on the field of battle. Still she proved herself worthy of the Palestinian’s experience with fighting those of their kind because she had sought teachers in the past who accepted training her and warned her that Immortal men weren’t her friends or potential lovers : they were ennemies she had to kill.
                      So when Dania of Hamman crossed one, she fought him and killed him. As she did with Boaz of Hebron, Karif of Nabatea and dozens of others.

                      Petrea
                      First death : 126; Executed by Roman centurion

                      First recorded sighting : 363. Petra, Jordan
                      During earthquake of Petra, inconclusive fight
                      against Boaz of Hebron

                      A disciple of Jonas of Petra, Karif of Nabatea forsook the hatred for Rome that drove most of his Immortality, feeling that hate wasn’t the incentive he needed to keep on living and playing the Game.
                      Unlike his teacher, Karif let go of his rancor when Rome fell in the Fifth century and gave up warfare, the Game, collectign weapons, discarding his sword and choosing htelife of a peaceful art collector, scouring Middle Eastern countries in search for valuables before becoming an art merchant in Petra, a married man raising four sons and three daughters. His last battle took place in Petra agaisnt Boaz of Hebron, later killed by Dania of Hamman and as fate will have it, it was Dania who came at his door, looking for an Immortal man to challenge. Karif wouldn’t fight, especially not a woman as beautiful as Dania but Dania wasn’t a woman to be denied. She seduced and broke the hearts of all four of Karif’s sons, bringing discord in his family, she humiliated and dishonored all three of his daughters anf finally, when she caused the accidental death of Sarah, Karif’s beloved wife, Karif couldn’t stand it anymore and picked his sword.
                      Karif’s family reunited for a final time before the Immortal’ s grave, a beloved husband and father, the woman who destroyed their unity gone like the wind.

                      Witnessing the last battle of Haytham agaisnt
                      Xanthia of Melitus

                      Mazaeus of Qataban heard the legend of the Stone of Methuselah and sought to acquire it, centuries before Luther sought it when he came after Xanthia’s disciples. Mazaeus was taught the legend of the Stone of Methuselah by his teacher, Haytham of Sabah who hemself heard it from his own teacher, Salome who herself was taught the tale by Haiim of the Twelth Tribe, an ancient Immortal an contemporary of Xanthia and knew of the Stone's existence when Xanthia herself was a young Immortal.
                      Mazaeus didn’t have an interfering field Watcher to help him acquire the missing fragments the way Luther did, only the tales of a Myceanean woman who held the crystal in her possession. Mazaeus found Xanthia in Petra and challenged her, boasting the power of her crystal would be his; however, Xanthia was a fierce keeper of Methuselah’s legacy and faced Immortals who were ten times more determined to kill her than the Yemenite.
                      Xanthia faced her ennemy who proved a skilled fighter, but she prevailed. When Mazaeus fell on hsi knees, he asked wether the crystal protected Xanthia, if this was the reason she won her fight; the Mycenean answered that magic is to be found in oneself, not in an artefact that was already ancient when she was young. And then Mazaeus was gone, forgotten by all.

                      Jean-Louis Boissié has been thought killed by Clemont Haynes in 1976 but there are rumors that it was a decoy whom Haynes took out and that Boissié is still living in Haiti, trafficking medicines destined to victims of the cholera outbreak from 2010 to 2017 and that he was the mysterious Immortal harassing Grace Chandel during all that time. The ghost of the Duvalier dynasty is still present in memories and we have another ghost on our hands.

                      slave by De Miranda, taught the rules of the Game

                      Simon de Miranda didn’t even reconise Soledad Pedraza when she challenged him, but the ghosts of the Tepehuans murdered by De Miranda during Spain conquest of Mexico never forgot him and Soledad made sure their voices were heard by the ancent Immortal. De Miranda was a repentant former conquistador who felt ashamed for his part in the massacre of thousands of natives from Peru and Mexico but he still wouldn’t surrender his head to the little Guadalajara hellion. The Tepehuans have been laid to rest, this time, but De Miranda will never forget : he has Soledad’s Quickening and memories in his mind, their war songs and cries of anger and revenge will haunt him for a long time.

Well, Echjole is the one who acquired Mohamed’s Quickenign and merged it with her own lifeforce.

                      In 1977, Mohamed Baghlani was hunted down by Luther who heard of his magical artefact, in the mistaken belief this was a piece of the Methuselah’ Stone and found the Mhjamed had none of the missing fragment of the precious stone. Just a single piece of stone around his neck and that was it. Luther let it slide after laughing at his expense and wished him good luck. In the end, there can be only one and Mohamed Bahglani will need more than superstition to protect him from the coming Gathering.

                      Andy Mulumba’s death after careful cross-referencing has finally been attributed to Echijole Jimah;, a woman he enslaved and raped in the 17th century and who never forgot, nor forgive not only her rape, but also the rape of her homeland by Kongo soldiers Mulumba served in those days. It is the chronicle of Kashta of Nubia which allowed us to find the connection between the two Immortals, Kashta having mentored Echijole after Mulumba neglected to kill her permanently four hundred years ago and explained to her how Mulumba was a powerful Immortal warrior like himself and that if Ejijole wanted revenge, she would have to train with the sword. And train with the sword she did ! A real fury who rid herself of all her hate and achieved calm and an inner strenght that served her when she faced her ennemy in Zaire. May-Ling Shen’s lessons in Macau served her well too, because her prowesses in kung fu and jui-jitsu are unparalleled in Central Africa.

                      England. Moorish merchant at court of Henry VIII,
                      encounter with Hugh Fitzcairn

                      Madior Diouf was a slaver by trader, a loner by choice, a player of the Game by taste and he mastered his craft as an amateur shipbuilder, making sure his ships had enough space to transport a maximum of slaves from Western Africa to the Americas. It was Hugh Fitzcairn who infected him with his taste for women and for the Game and Fitz bust have regretted having mentored such a man who became the devil in disguise on the slave markets of Africa. Everyone makes mistakes but because of Immortals like Diouf, Morgan Walker or Theodore Canot, Farid Al’Zafir, one of the greatest genocide in the history of mankind was organized before our eyes and none of us ever interfered. Diouf’s death was a blatant case of Watcher interference : Mihrimah Pamuk was tipped on the whereabouts of Diouf and made short work of the Immortal.
                      Cross-referencing the chronicle of Fitzcairn, we found how it was Diouf who saved the Englishman’s head after he seduced the daughter of the Vicar of Westminster, by convincing Richeard of Mercia that Fitz would serve him better with his head on his shoulders, as an independent agent of the Secret Immortals Services and Richeard listened to the Moor. Fitz owed his life to Madior Diouf, a debt he repaid by letting him live after he found Diouf’s proclivities with young girls. A debt of honor was repaid, to the expense of countless lives.

                      A lot of Immortals seem to mistake Anthony Chance for Carter Wellan, probably because of both Immortals fashion sense (black leather) and habit of sporting a mane of flowing blonde hair. But that’s not the only reason : those are two Immortals who have been lucky in the Game in spite of taking few challenges and who are known for associating with Africa-born Immortals in time periods when such thing was not only unadvisable but also forbidden. And still they are both happy-go-lucky men. They did meet once, and you couldn’t tell Anthony from Carter, the ressemblance was striking. Like two brothers.
                      The only difference being Anthony is seventy years old while Carter his closing 970 years.

                      The Black Mamba is a predatory Immortal woman who has been active in one country or another of the Southern part of the African continent, a title held by five separate Immortals in eight hundred years.

                      The first was Inah Gaetswe, a fearsome spear-wielding Mapungubwe of present Zimbabwe and who led her tribe against the forces of Gavriel Larca during Portugal conquest of South Africa. The second one was mentored by Inah Gaetswe and ran agaisnt Hippolito Cabral in 1625, in war agaisnt the Portuguese like her mentor. Kizzy Afrani became the third Black Mamba, though she had no relation to the two previous ones, having been mentored by Kashta of Nubia, the legendary "Son of Sudala" and she gave hell to German commander Ernst Daimler in 1907 before disappearing like the two previous Mambas.
                      The following Mamba to take that name was Nantobeko of Batusoland, a freedom fighter for four separate decades, never sen withouth her pet cheetah she dressed to kill British soldiers as well as any Immortal foolish enough to challenge her. Finally, the last we know of was Ayondela Kawime, a rebel fighter in Angola who was mentored by legendary Queen Anne Nzinga; herself a disciple of Sunda Kastagir.

                      All those women were thought killed long ago, but cross-referencing work in past chronicles of Ernst Daimler, Larca, Hippolito Cabrall, Olapede Chukwu ad Kashta of Nubia allow to file those five ladies among the list of Missing Immortals, rather than Deceased.
                      They may still be living out there, somewhere, waiting together for the time of the Gathering.

                        • Apollo, I already have a German woman member of the anti-Nazi movement in Germany, born in 1916, turned Immortal in 1938.
                          Can I suggest another nationality for Bruno ? Austrian, or Czech. Or German born in Central Europe, there were German settlers everywhere in Central and Eastern Europe, even in Switzerland. I like the hate crime victim background though.

                          Cheers!

                          In the middle of the Guaranda earthquake, while everyone fled in panic, Ametler was working out coomplicated mathematical formulas, his head in clouds, in his numbers, not paying attention to the outside world. He was packing when he felt the call from another Immortal and that was David Bautista who couldn’t resist an opportunity amidst the chaos. Had the mathematics genius trained more with his sword he would be among us, possibly the next Stephen Hawking, instead of feeding the worms, forgotten by all men, exept for math teachers torturing students with complicated formulas no one cares about.

                          Arjendo the monk drank when he shouldn’t have and lost his head in a fury of lightings the 3rd of November 1820. The arrogant Spaniard Consone warned him to stay away from the bottle and to be ready for any Immortal cruising for a kill, but Arjendo retorted that no one would raise a finger against a poor monk like him. Someone did, however, in the wake of Ecuadoran independence.
                          Arjendo was among the fabled Twelve Apostles of Mexico who embarked to the Viceroyalty of New Spain (present Mexico) with the goal of converting local Indians to Christianity. In those days he supported the subjugation of the Indians as savages and did his worst to torment them, giving them hell, figuratively speaking. He officially died in Mexico in 1568, faking his own death before leaving for Peru. What could turn an ascetic soldier of Christ like Toribio de Benavente into a drunken fool like Arjende is unknown to us.

                          David Bautista challenged women in bed, not in the Game but Ynez de Urquiza liked a challenge and wasn’t afraid to compete against male Immortals. Macho Bautista was vain about his superior skills and was above fighting a woman, yet he was forced to when she taunted him and harassed him until he was forced to draw his sword. What a superb lesson she gave him ! One should never underestimate a woman. Bautista was defeated and humilated, worse: Ynez let him keep his head. Baitista threw a dagger in the back of Ynez and when she was on the ground, took her head. The arrogant bastard had a very easy victory, too bad he cheated.

                            Born : 1907, Northern Algeria
                            First death : 1930, Hit by lightning during storm

                            Tarif takes the Game liked a joke, especially since his teacher told him headhunters would come after him with big sword, and that with his left arm dead he wouldn't live out the decade. But Tarif doesn't care. All he wants is to live out until the age of ninety-nine like his grandfather, the most ancient of mortals in his tribe of Rushallah, and after this... it will have been a good life. So since he turned out 101 last January, Tarif, lives as an actor, moving from towns to towns, staying in relative obscurity and staying wary of strangers sending him "the buzz", the unmistakable presence of an immortal. When Sid'Ahmed Taya cornered him in Algers, Tarif tried to talk his way out of the confrontation as he usually did; the stage comedian was a success with an audience of mortals, less so with Sid'Ahmed Taya.

                            When Job Kwedhi found himelf facing that pack of lions in the savannah he got the scare of his life : the packleader looked at him, a challenging look in those yellow eyes. I swear I saw it and Job did too. But the lions left, his group of tourists breatheed a collective sigh of relief. It was as if the rampant madness in mortal world was somehow infecting the animals. Saints preserve us.

                            To entertain his audience, Clem Tholet performed an unique rendition of ‘the lion sleeps tonight’, referring to the end of the Immortals War, unbeknowst to the listeners, exept for me. The lyrics alluded to a lion forever sleeping so I got the pun. It was funny. But I do hope Clem stays in Harare, because she has a project of moving to Pretoria, where immortals are still hunting and I do hope those lions do not put their paws on my assignment.

                            reincarnation of Anubis, God of Death, got in
                            conflict with Kashta of Nubia and Sit-Hathor Iunet

                            Khemistos and Kaneptah were a deadly husband-and-wife duo of remorseless killers, opportunist cultists staging cults across the world, in manners fitting the countries they settled in : followers of Anugbis in Egypt, Voodoo in the Carribean and Western Africa, Aztec followers in Latin America, snuff pornographers in Ciudad Juarez, followers of Kali in India and who knows were else. Each time they killed, they shared the power of theri victim.

                            They must have killed dozens of Immortals those two, in each part of the world they started a cult, gathering followers who would kidnapp previously identified Immortals and bring them to their coven where Kaneptah and Khemistos would kill them, sharing the Quickenings, with their public in awe in front of their power over lightnings, never questioning the transfer of energy. They started as an Anubis cult in 898, killing Immortals from Egypt and Nubia; in New Orleans during the late 18th century (1768-1790); then more Immortals in Ciudad Juarez from 1983 to 1992. There are a lot of missing Immortals in the chronicles, we suspect them of having murdered people from pre-Columbian America, Carribean, Southern Asia, especially India; also in the jungles of Thailand and Cambodia.

                            Finally Armnius Vambery got to them last September, havng followed theri trails since the Angkor Vat massacre of 1953, two dozen mortal followers killed in mass suicide, as it is the case when they decide to leave for another part of the world. More Immortals from Cambodia reported missing. But this time, they didn't have the time to kill more, Vambery was watching from afar and finally tracked them down to their lair. So stupid of them to leave tracks.
                            So stupid to live like vampires, sleeping by day, living by night. Not even good with swords, they never bothered with giving a fair fight to the Immortals they killed. A long last, their reing of terror is over.

                            The fight between Sghair M’Barek and Irkena Konaté ended with Mbarek’s victory against the younger player of the Game. Konaté was a coward who took out inactive Immortals so as to weed out the Immortal scene from less interesting competitors and had his fair share of kills in the last seventy years. Sghair gave a fair challenge and was received with a machine-gun, it is a miracle he managed to escape and hide, waitign for a better opportunity. When he finally met up Konaté in a brothel of Balmako, he frightened both customers and whores with his agression before finally taking out that blemish of an Immortal after a five minutes run.

Batista didn’t care, the Game gave a meaning to his life.

Harding is not interested in Nell, to the Irishwoman’s chagrin who is in desperate need for the fortune of a rich, lonely man. Kinda off from her, since she tends to avoid confrontations with other immortals – mortals made much easier kills – maybe she is looking for different challeges this time, or she set her mind on playing the Game that time.

                            She is a cop. And a good cop. Patrolling the streets of Los Angeles is giving her thrills she can no longer get from the Game, tired as she is of the never-ending battle for survival that has been her curse for the past fifteen centuries. Her mother, known to her Bantu tribe as an old witch and called in Swahili Fire from the Sky, taught her the ways of womanhood, the ways of men, the arts of tribal warfare and of the Game. She taught her about painting and respecting the laws of nature.
                            According to the reports about the 2004 gathering of Kellistra's students in Switzerland, Fire from the Sky may well have been a past identity of the former Horsewoman, but no conclusive proof was established.
                            Zuwarah became a warrior-woman and an artist, alternating her life between travelling the world, discovering new sensations, exploring new walks of life, and taking the heads of any immortal foolish enough to challenge her. And there had been many.

                            Few immortals had been her friends, aside Fire from the Sky : there had been her six brothers and sisters, all alive and living in Eastern Africa, a Moor and his squire, a legendary Mycenean keeper of the Methuselah stone. That was all. All three died during the Nineties, fallen to the latest cycle of the Game, because the Game was working in cycle, "like a woman's monthly blood," had said her teacher, with a touch of irony. The middle of the Eighties marked the beginning of the end for hundreds of immortals, the same way it did each century : an immortal death now and then, then a building death-toll which became a "mini-Gathering" as the century drew to a close.
                            A new century was born from the graves of hundreds of souls, the good and the bad, the ugly and the charming, the tormented and the wicked. None had been spared. When Y2K's birth-pangs ended, the immortal community breathed in relief as much as in pain : many of them were dead, but life was going on and others would be born. They still had to hide, to teach their young, to meet mortals and fall in love, to fight each other, but at least they could rest. There weren't many of them in the world, six hundred at most. But still, life went on. And Zuwarah of the Bantu people smiles to herself as she strolls down the street for another day of work.

                            Interrogated by Kenyatta as suspect in the killings
                            of two members of the Crips, later taken out of the
                            county morgue when shot by Crips members in
                            retaliation.

                            Malcom Coyle grew up on the streets of L.A, a violent boy who became a violent man, raised by the gang that welcomed him. Coyle was faithful ony to the gang and to its colors and, when told to shoot down two members of the blue-garbed Crips, did it. For this, retaliation ensued and he died by the gun the way he had lived. Zuri Kenyatta got him out of the morgue by night, as quickly she could, with no small help from themorgue supervisor, a friend of hers and aware of the existence of immortals after seen Zuri recover from a bullett in the heart last year.
                            Malcom couldn't believe his luck but didn't listen to Zuri's lessons about immortality, just didn't care. He just thought he was the luckiest guy on earth but couldn't buy that nonsense about immortals, about the Game and decided to make a go for it, leaving L.A as fast as he could. He is now in Guatemala, living the high life of a bank robber, changing places and trying to avoid agressive sword-fencers - at least something from Zuri that came true.
                            We shall see how long he lasts in the Game. My best best is two years. No more.

                            The roller skater dressed like a Samurai warrior who made such a sensation on Youtube last month turned out to be Immortal Chion Iwajima, an agressive player of the Game who challenged Frederika Toth last week in Tokyo. Frederika had a devil of a time taking that one out, but she is a very serious player of the Game trying to emulate the legendary Yasuke, Black Samurai, trying to put her mark on the Immortal scene. The fight was quite long, but worth a sight and in the end, Frederika proved the best on rollers and with a sword in hand. Unfortunately, Frederika is now infected with the Dark Quickening once poisoning Chion’s mind and this is a very different woman now, I shudder when I think of how she could start killing Immortals in Tokyo now.

                            Frederika Toth challenged Toshiro Nakayata, once a good friend, and killed him after a furious fight, using the Greek hoplmite sword Madeline La Touche gave her. The Spartan sword against the Samurai saber, it was the latter that prevailed. And now Toshiro is likely infected with the Dark Quickening he received from Toth. I have never seen such anger and despair on the face of an Immortal. Did he understand in his last moment of sanity that he was done for ?

Finally Sanjiv Gupta settled old scaores with the immortal when he found him before the Pakistani could put his attack in motion. The fight was quick, the ensuing Quickening destroyed the explosives but still but the center town of Bombay into a panick, which in the end proved less traumatic than if Lari had suceeded in his plan.

                            Sumaya kept a low profile in the Game, especially in a society as harshly unforgiving to women as one can fidn in Western Asiaern countries. But the 20th century rolled in and little by tlittle the status of women changed, though not as well as in Western Europe. Sumaya won her independance, a modiculm ofs elf-confidence against male Immortals winning one victory after another and proved herself to her male ounterparts in Ithe Kuwaitian army during the First and Second Gulf War. She took part in the search and recovery mission to find Saddam Hussein hinding in his rathole, something she had at heart after the dictator gassed most of her mortal family. against ISIL she was no slouch with a gun and a sword either : more than one terrorist fell before her and where she sent them there were no virgins waiting.
                            Then Khalida Al-Najiran challenged her to a fight and while Khalida was compared to Safiyah Khan, Khalida doesn't fight for religious motives but for sports, for the thrill of the hunt and Sumaya has no time to waste with competitors i nthe Game, fighting only when forced to. The fight took place outside of Bethlehem, a holy city, Sumaya didn't have the fire she would have needed to win, her battles were elsewhere : protecting her mortal husband and stepchildren, teaching soldiers how to combat terrorism and other threats, helping women assert themselves. It is a great loss for the mortal community.

                            A portrait in contradiction : to forget and to remember. One thousand years of fighting one battle after the other, of killing one immortal after another, of constantly seeing friends and lovers die and crumble like dust finally took a toll on poor Morant's mind. He has decided he should give up fighting, discarding his collection of words, and to concentrate on his craft as war photographer.
                            The One Hundred-Years war, the American Civil War, WWI, WWII, Korea, the Armenia massacres, Afghanistan, every posible battlefront, he did them, capturing countless atrocities on paper and in pictures so as to serve as witness to mankind, to remind the western world that people are still suffering even after the 18th century's age of reason and the 20th century technological age came and went. Mankind has stayed the same, the horror goes on.
                            But Morant is tired from the Game and wants to put an end to his participation in it. So he is drowning himself in his work, forgetting himself, forgetting the immortal community and its mad suicidal race to eternity.

                            Sometime I don’t understand immortals like Luka Baikov. They have it all : married, a big house, fast cars, the best in their chosen profession and then they go in scluded places and duck it out with other immortals to lose their head, their life, everyhting they had, including their future. In the 2010’s Baikov made frequent visits the the well-known brothels on the German-Cech border as well as in contries of Southeast Asia and if Alyssa Bautista didn’t kill him, Hannah Baran did : the German goverment operative was investigating the existence of those brothels when she met up with Baikov, an occasional player of the Game who wasn’t above challenging an adult-sized immortal in the Game. Hannah did her job, she wrote her report and sent it to her supervisors in Berlin while I also wrote my report on his final battle against the German woman.

                            Alexei Voshin has re-appeared in Kiev, Ukrain, a drug-lord as always. The once suspected agent of Ravenwood is keeping a low profile and isn’t interfering in the affairs of others immortals, although he received warning from the BMR that they are keeping him under close scrutinity. When finally the BMR got proof that he was involved and personally killed their friend Kir Bulchyev, he had a death sentence on his head and it is the Scorpion of Minsk who carried out the sentence.

                            Rajko Zinzifov has been founding the rascist organisation Golden Dawn in Greece and was spewing politicl troubles in a time when Greece is at its most deperate, with migrants begging for safe asylum. Rajko doesn’t do it out of post-Nazi ideologism but out of boredom, after three hundred years on living on the Immortal scene, occasionally playing the Game and usually making a nuisance of himself. Thanos of Athens was investigating recent brutal attacks on the Turkish community of Athens when he was met by Zinzifov who sought to acquire the power and experience of the ancient Greek. A big mistake from his part, but with his death the Golden Dawn has one less financer.

                                For forty years or so the above mentioned Immortals were aberrations in our chronicles; young Immortals who, for unknown reasons, despite being mentored by what we would deem as "good" Immortals, committed heinous acts and were themselves then killed by other decent Immortals, one was even slain by his own teacher. Some Watcher scholars speculated that they had all encountered some previously unidentified ancient Immortal powerful enough to corrupt them. He/she had even been dubbed "the Corruptor" in the archives. Now, however, we have been able to positively identify "The Corruptor" as Absalom Finch, the sixth Sin Eater. A talented psychiatrist before he became immortal, Finch had already proved his talent for manipulating vulnerable minds during the Thomas Baxter Incident of 1936. Following information provided by Richeard of Mercia and Allegra Chambers concerning the movements of Finch after the Second World War, we can now update the chronicles of RadoslawBujak and Bruno Falck.

                                  The Chronicle of Avram Ben Mordecai

                                  The Chronicle of Avram Ben Mordecai spans 1900 years years of mankind's history, he is one of the most important immortals to walk the Earth. Avram has been closely involved in the history of the Jewish people since the second centuries, trying to protect the race from the countless persecutions it suffered at the hands of the Romans, the Czars, the Inquisition and the Nazis.

                                  Avram first appeared on our Chronicles as Shimon Bar-Kokhba, leader of the Jewish revolt against Rome between 132 and 135 C.E. Bar-Kokhba united his army in Judea and led the Jews in battle. This rebellion later became known as the Bar-Kokhba revolt.
                                  Mentors new Immortal Ruth.
                                  Avram re-appeared in 637, calling himself Avram of Jerash to remind the immortal community that he still was a force to be reckoned with. He settled among the Jewish community of Babylon when Calife Omar established a series of restrictions against the Jews, including making them wear a peace of yellow cloth around the arm. We all know how that custom would develop in the 20th Century... Yet at this time, the Califes of Bagdhad didn't feel much about those restrictions and allowed the Jew to live as they intended and a rich culture develloped, combining Greek, Muslims and Jewish teachings at a time when Europe was lost in the Dark Ages.

                                  By the 10th Century, the heart of Jewish and Muslim culture was displaced from Babylon to Spain where Avram was found living. Between the 10th and 15th Century, Avram kept himself busy in Europe where he had to face the persecution of the Jews in every Christian country.
                                  13th Century Ethiopia Lives in the Beta Israel Kingdom, fighting Christians, mentors a new immortal, Jacob Bar Shebron
                                  During the Black Plague he and Rebecca tried to fight the spreading disease but to no avail : more Christians deaths led to more persecutions.

                                  In 1479, Avram returned to Spain under the identity of Don Isaac Abravanel, a leader of Spanish Jewry and one of King Ferdinand I's most trusted officials. When King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella tried to expell all the Jews who hadn't converted to Christian faith, Avram tried to change their mind. Ferdinand didn't but offered to exempt Abravanel from the decree. Abravanel, however, chose to leave with the other Jews.

                                  In 1648, Avram became one of the leaders of the Jewish community in Poland and created their own autonomous administrative system in the midst of Poland, which became the heart of Jewish culture in Europe. Then Bogdan Khmelnitsky led Ukrainian cossaks against the Polish communuities founded by Avram and nearly destroyed them all, starting the decline of the Jewish community in Eastern Europe.
                                  Jews were again forbidden to have jobs such as doctors or teachers, to belong to artesan guilds, to possess farms and and had to live from menial jobs.

                                  In 1786, Avram is trying to protect his people in Russia from the Czar, helping Jews escape the Pogroms. He was largely involved in the immigration of 2 millions Jews toward America, were, thanks to his immortal network, a lot of them could find safe haven in the New World.

                                  Avram vanishes again and reappears in 1896 in New-York were he is David Grossman, a rich banker, popular member of the New-York Jewish community. As David Grossman he is going to lead an undeground railway in Europe for the Jews suffering from persecutions from the Nazi. He is also involved in the underground resistance movement led by Alex Raven and bears witness to the atrocities perpetrated by Hitler's yes-men.

                                  He re-appaerared in Tel-Aviv in 1967, as member of the MOSSAD, hunting former Nazis officers. Hhis life ends agaisnt the blade of Duncan MacLeod in 1996 after he settled old scores with Marcus Cosntantien in Paris.

                                  The Zealots were originally a political movement in 1st century Second Temple Judaism which sought to incite the people of Judaea Province to rebel against the Roman Empire and expel it from the Holy Land by force of arms, most notably during the First Jewish–Roman War (66-70). One of those Zealots was immortal Gershem Ben-Zion, a disciple of the legendary Uzzah of Judah, and a fierce ennemy of Rome and devoted to the cause of Jews's freedom to simply exist.
                                  For six hundred years he fought the legions led by Marcus Constantine until the fall of Rome.
                                  In 630 he was helping fellow Israelites running from persecutions by Emperor Heraclius when he was found and killed by a red-haired Jewess identified as Xanthia of Melitus, still udner the influence of the Dark Quickening she received in 550 in India.

                                  as past disciple of Gideon

                                  Shekinah of Hebron was formally identified as an Immortal by Watchers one yer before Judith of Bethulia took out the Quickening that made her famous. Since both women were ennemies of King Nabuchodonezzer there is a vbalid possibility that Shekinah is the woman who helped Judith kill General Holofernes, and not Elishevah as I previously wrote in my journals. Anwyway, Shekinah had formidable weapons and by that I do not mean her sword, but also the sexual power which she held over men, making them obey her every whem and when she married Avram Mordecai, it wasn’t out of love, rather an arrangement to face common ennemies and life in the Game as a deadly force to be reckoned with. She would never acknowledge it to my face, but this is a woman who did love her Avram and Avram loved her. When Lucius Oranius Capito killed Shekinah, his world fell apart and he was never the same man over the centuries.

                                    Barsanus of Parthia has been found to be Barsine of Asaak, an Immortal woman fighting the Sassanids under a male identity. She was a disciple of Panthea Artehsbod and live for five hundred years before disappearing at the Battle of Homozdgan in 224. Being a disciple of Panthea it is likely she lived longer and that she thrived in the Game, unencumbered by the social weight of being a woman in a male-dominated society. She simply didn’t care about being a woman since she was an Immortal one, able to fake her death, change identities and live for centuries. All she had to do was hide her feminity like many other Immortals like her.

                                    It is a coincidence of the Game to see an Immortal woman like Chwun-yu, who spread the teachings of Manicheism, face an Immortal like Lobon Naro-Boshung who followed the teachings of Darius the man of peace and the Kurgan, the man of war and violence. Both Darius and the Kurgan were on opposite sides of the Game, loked up in the manichest battle of good vs evil while Chwun-yu was a teacher of Manicheism. Did Chwun-yu die against Lobon's sword or did they recognize in each other a kindred spirit, we shall never know.

                                    Unlike Barsine of Asaak, Pantea Arteshbod’s other disciple, Melania of Traxiane ever hid her feminity, she never had to. She was self-conscious, aware of her mesmerizing beauty and the effect it could have on men. She knew the way to a man’s heart (or head) can be though his sexuality and she used every advantage she had to win in male affairs, in mortality or in Immortality. She won a lot of battles and stayed as beautiful and proud as she was upon her First Death when an arrow pierced her heart in 140 BC. She met defeat agaisnt one man, Immortal, in 651, when Selim Ubadah proved smarter and more in control than most Immortal men and won her heart, taking her to his bed. He was the one she respected and who learnt to respect her as a woman and fellow warrior. A virgin with the oath of only giving herself to an Immortal man able to conquer her, Melania willingly gave herself to Selim that night and when daw came… Selim was alone, a peace of his heart gone with Melania.

                                    Found and mentored by Vatche Kasyan

                                    In 650, durign the Arab conquest of Armenia, Selim Ubadah faced a warrior and Immortal who introduced himself as Arshak of Lazica, a towering juggernaut with the mind of a ten years old who understood the Game as a game between bad people and good people. Good people kept him fed and warm while bad people invaded his homeland and hurt the people keeping him fed and warm. Arshak was a man-child of his time, he didn’t read, liked his sword, didn’t understand women and didn’t understand the value of money.
                                    With his teacher, Vatshe Kasyan, they did a good team : brains & muscle with Vatshe preventing him for doing childish things and endangering himself while Arshak gave his friend his superior strenght and bravura when needed on the field of battle. In 451, Vatshe was killed by Immortal Lalica and Arshak lost his friend. Thereafter, Arshak went from one battlefield to another and seemingly enjoyed himself immensely like a child forever lost in Neverland. When he was defeated by Omi Mahdavi-Kia in 600 AD, his opponent let him live, pitying the man he perceived as a simpleton, while this was simply a lost child trying to fend for himself.
                                    When Selim Ubadah fought him and landed him on his knees, Arshak didn’t understand why he was dying, he only understood the pain from the Arab’s scimitar and that the game was ending for him.

                                      The death of Buju Gujira, found raped and decapitated in her appartment of New Delhi triggered an outcry of indignation in the streets of the city as well as on social networks. Research to find the culrpit behind her death has been unconclusive. Biju was a woman who could look after herself and was good with a sword, havign been trained by Ajara Dural, her partner in the police force and in all things romantic but someone didn’t aprove of their relationship, by the look of it. Since last October, Aajara is on the warpath, huntign the Immortal who murdered her lover and she will know no respite until she has found him (or her).

                                      Like the infortunate Biju Gujiral, Ambuj Gokaraku was the victim of sexual violence upon her First Death nd was mentored by Sanjiv Gupta who taught her to rid herself from the traumatism poisoning her mind and to turn her agression into a force to protect herself in the Game. Ever since she did very well and while she was never as prolific a hunter like the Crimson Butterfly or Lang Quing, she proved to be an apt sword and imparted the teachings she receved from Gupta to generations of female students across the Indian subcontinent by teaching martial arts, helping young girls and women survive in a country where women are constantly victims of violence from men and are taught that women are helpless and are worth nothing.
                                      Ambuj proves them otherwise and ranks among the twenty Immortals (both genders) who are expected to fight to the finish durign the Final Gathering two decades from now.

                                      Krisha Singh shoots first and asks questions later, be it as a soldier of the Moist militas or as a player of the Game. We have never seen her kill an Immortal in fair fight since the ibeginning of the 20th century. Any Immortal who crosses her (beneveolent or not) has barely the time to sense her presence before his head his separated from his body by a sharp bullet aimed to the neck, with Krish reaping the Quickening, effortlessly. To her, having been mauled to death in a gang-rape in 1880 is excuse enough to justify the violence and it isn’t the behavior of men in India that’s going to have her change her mind. The Game is the Game: if it must be played on, she will play it and I pity the poor guy she will meet next in the Red Corridor.

Among the visiting children was an Immortal one who met with Kit Samak. Tense words were exchanged, Kit seemengly knew the child, to all appearances, a 10 years old boy. The boy didn't introduce himself and left Samak to join his "parents", no doubt a couple of mortals unaware of the child's immortality and who had adopted him in one orphanage institution of Thailand. Tentatively identified as "John Doe", an enquiry is ordered to find the identity of the boy, how he met Kit Samak in the first place and wether he is a player of the Game or not.

                                      Mariman has only one motto he lives by : take what you like. He has been plundering the archeological wealth of his homeland ever since his first Death in 1945, mentored by an amoral Frenchman by name of Jean-Bpatiste Chabon who taught him that the world was ripe for the picking and that he had all the time in the world to make himself wealthy beyond belief. The Game (and simply, life) taught Mriman that the world isn’t so simple and that he has better be careful of the Immortals he crosses, but he stays away from the Game, surrounding himself with heavily armed bodyguards to fend off aggressive players of the Game.
                                      And Godknows he pissed off a lot of Immortals in his time, in the likes of Gabriel Piton, Amanda, Andre Korda… each time making a deal to save his head, exchanging one valuable artefact or information for his life. Even Grayson was impressed by the yougn Immortal’s knowledge of hidden and buried treasures.
                                      He did double-cross Amanda once, but she let it slide when she learnt who Mariman’s teacher was, one of her own disciples ! “If a thief rob another thief, he is forgiven for another year, she told him. I better not see you by the time of the Gathering !”

                                        Born: 1798, Norwich, England

                                        victims
                                        First teacher: Jeremiah Morse, aka The Sin Eater V
                                        Known associates: Abigail Crane, aka The Sin Eater VIII
                                        Known past associates: Keaton Bartlett, aka The Sin Eater VII,
                                        Jeremiah Morse
                                        Known enemies: Allegra Chambers, SIS

                                        First recorded sighting: 1850, Brighton, England
                                        Mentored by Morse, who had been watching him for
                                        several months

                                        Absalom Finch, the sixth Immortal to carry the title of The Sin Eater, was a dark mirror of the revered Sean Burns. While Burns studied the human mind to help mortals and Immortals alike, Finch sought only to control and dominate weaker personalities.

                                        Of all the Sin Eaters, he was the most sinister and devious. His murders of "sinners" were less about mutilation and punishment, more about the thrill of the hunt and kill.
                                        A psychiatrist before his First Death, Finch preyed on his patients in sick psychological experiments often leading to suicide, and was thought to have been murdered by a relative of one of his victims. He was then mentored by Jeremiah Morse, who had been watching him for some time, offering him redemption for his crimes and a means to channel his murderous urges into killing only "sinners".

                                        The manipulation and death of Immortal Thomas Baxter of the SIS in 1936, brought him into the crosshairs of Allegra Chambers and a relentless pursuit ensued, interrupted only by World War II, during which Finch picked up his own apprentice, although she was reluctant to follow in his footsteps.

                                        His manipulation of two young, vulnerable Immortals and their subsequent deaths, eventually allowed Allegra Chambers to pick up his trail and track him to Paris in 1958. Wary of how dangerous Finch could be, Richeard of Mercia sent Chambers to Sean Burns to offer insight into the mind and methods of Finch. When Chambers followed him to his Paris apartment, she had to combat his attempts to provoke her and probe for her mental weaknesses, but thanks to Sean Burns' insights, she resisted Finch's tricks and attacked him with her sword. Finch was surprisingly fleet-footed for someone of his physical appearance, having spent several years training with European fencing champions, but Chambers' centuries of experience was telling and she decapitated him on his expensive Persian carpet.

                                        From the Chronicle of the Secret Immortals Society

                                        Neither Allegra Chambers nor the SIS could have known that Absalom Finch's demise that day helped create the current Sin Eater. Abigail Crane had resisted her lover's attempts to cajole her into murder and the mask of The Sin Eater, but his death led to her grief transforming into rage and a steely determination to carry on his legacy and find and destroy Allegra Chambers and the SIS.

                                          of Siam. During war against Burma, encounter
                                          with Kit Samak, challenged by Srijoy Alak

                                          On 14 January 2018, people took their children to see the military hardware the Royal Thai Army put on display in the Children’s Day event at the Royal Thai Armed Forces headquarters on Changwattana Road on Saturday. Among the visiting children was an Immortal one who met with Kit Samak. Tense words were exchanged, Kit seemengly knew the child, to all appearances, a 10 years old boy. The boy didn't introduce himself and left Samak to join his "parents", no doubt a couple of mortals unaware of the child's immortality and who had adopted him in one orphanage institution of Thailand. Tentatively identified as "John Doe", an enquiry is ordered to find the identity of the boy, how he met Kit Samak in the first place and wether he is a player of the Game or not.

                                          Cross-referencing on the deaths of Immortals of Southeast Asia by undetermined Immortals allow to pin the blame on Immortal Boon-nam for the deaths of Kham Nai in Laos and Baen Sihanouk in Cambodia, both Immortal were tricked by a seemingly defenseless boy who won their trust and them disarmed them with violent kickboxing techniques before taking their heads.
                                          Kham Nai was killed in 1827; Cristiana Tiharu in 1976 durign the Aceh insurgency, Baen in 1981 and Souvanna Phouma in 1998. It is likely Boon-nam took lessons of kickboxing from an Immortal like Chao-Tak Chalor or from May-Ling Shen before risking himself with playing the Game. Obviously he must have crossed Kit Samak a second time between 1790 and 2018 because Samak wasn't too pleased with seeing him again. Did he try his number on Samak ? Unless he came after an Immortal friend or student of his.

                                          The civil war in the CAR has seen an Immortal among its commanding officer, Julian Bakangué once an officer in service to president and dictator Jean-Bedel Bokassa. After Bokassa’s death, Bankangué disappeared but not before taking wth him afortune in diamonds which he used to buid a little army for himself as well as purchase a big house somewhere in the CAR. It is difficult ot keep a Watcher on him, this is a paranoid customer as well as being a serial rapist, having purchased several village girls from Boko Haram in recent years.
                                          This week-end his company fought a battalion of children soldiers led by Ghost Mulenga, also an Immortal and a hunter of his kind. Ghost's company took a heavy loss and Ghost found himself alone facing Bakangué, but this is a vicioous little devil Bakangué faced and he took a shell through the neck, his head parting from his body. As his head rolled on the ground, an astonished look in his eyes, Ghost took the Quickening in front of his amazed boys and Bakangué's men ran like hell, having seen the devil take their leader's soul.

                                          Jane Chirwa’s victory against Eric Cannago wasn’t only for the sake of revenge but also justice for the countless girls the Nyanja Immortal raped over the centuries in the name of an antiquated tradition, as hazardous to the lives of his victims as is unprotected sex or the practice of excision. Eric was a hyena in the true sense of the term, a savage beast feeding on defenseless women and girls, a pradator left running wild. He should have been walking on four legs. Twice he escaped the superior baldes of Immortal women – Mossane, Allegra Chambers – but not against one of his former victims.

                                          Bebe Kenyatta reunited with an old ennemy last November, one she hadn't seen sicne the 17th century when she killed him after he tried to rape a woman from the village she lived in. She killed him but couldn't take his head, the Quickening would have attracted unwanted atention on her and she didn't want to pass as a demon. Kikwete sexually assaulted Meja Kola during the electorial violences incidents, not even bothering to take her head : to him the pleasure of brutalizing and taking a woman through brute force was more pleasing then the kill itself. Kola swore to come after him but Bebe wanted his head first. Both women hunted him down and it was Meja Kola, finally, who took Kikwete out of the Game.

                                          Finally Juanita Vasquez avenged the murder of her friend and student Yolanda Dulché when she tracked down El Cod Solerzano to his lair and took him out after rampaging her way thorugh his armed bodyguards in to Villa Quatro of San Miguel Totolapan. While his evil legacy will likely live on, at least the ghost of Yolanda may rest in peace. Solerzano made his first appearance on the immortal scene when he sold contraband guns and ammo to Duncan MacLeod and Paul Karros during the days of the Mexican Revolution, a shady and violent bastard to thrived on the violence brought by the revolution and got oàn very well with Karros, less with MacLeod because of his tendency to treat mortals like cattle. Since then he was involved in all manners of revolutiobns in Latin America and went from weapons trafficking to drugs trafficking by the start of the 1960’s when cocain and heroin started thery grand entrances on the drug scene. Calling himself El Cid after the Spaniard hero, Angelo was known as the most fearless man of the Mexican criminal underground and the most cruelest, using imperished women as mules to transport drugs outside of Mexico to the United States and Latin American countries. In the mid-Nineties he started a lucrative business involving snuff pornography, kidnapping textile factories workers from Ciudad Juarez, having them raped and murdered on camera before selling those videos on clandestine markets. His business improved with the coming of Internet. Those last ten years he was back to drug trafficking and who knows what he would have done else in the coming decades had he not been killed by Juanita Vasquez.

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

                                          Seven years after getting out of that mass grave, “Santana” still suffers from partial amnesia and claustrophobia, never gettign out of the radio he cowers in. When he was found by Felix Kokastos he could barely say his name, Felix named him after the only word the boy could mutter “Santana… Santana”. A lover killed with him during San Fernando massacre, or one of the perpetrators, we shall know someday when he is fully recovered. Today our guy is a talented broadcaster who avoids the company of other Immortals after the tales of endless fights Kokastos taught him, he just wants to survive.

                                          Linda Flaherty’s foster child, miraculously
                                          surviving fatal wounds after 1993 shooting

                                          The poor kid didn’t stand a chance in the Game : after her adopted mother died she became a runaway, living in a world of fantasy where she would live forever young and make new friends with immortal children like herself, too soft and too kind to turn out like Kenneth and too trusting toward other Immortals, in spite of Linda Flaherty’s recomandations. Ann-Frid was hunted down by Daria De Souza after Daria killed Linda in combat, but Ann managed to evade her, before going from one child home to another, being bullied by boys and girls taller than she was. Once she was sexually molested by a guardian and she ran again. Tearful, scarred and scared she still was a good kid when she was aproached by the seemingly friendly Chrystle Lightning. The Native American woman known to be enthralled by a Dark Quickening was in a period of mentaly stability and both Immortals enjoyed each other company for a new months before the madness festering in Chrystle’s mind took over and she felt it was time to dispose of the annoying pest.
                                          Ann-Frid didn’t understand why she had to die but when she tried to run, Chrystle was faster and took her out of the Game. Ann-Frid’s death is a tragedy, but who knows how she could have turned out, betrayed one time too many ? Wecould have had one more Immortal child like Kenneth as a contestant for the Prize.

                                          Encounter with Kit O’Brady at rodeo show

                                          When Victoria Kint faced Grant Makim she showed the same fighting skills and dance movements than the ferocious Dahomey Amazons of the 19th century which allow us to pin Ekaghogho of the Dahomey Amazons as her likely teacher after her First Death in 1903. Victoria described to Kit O’Brady her teacher as a ferocious Africa-born woman, with volatile temper, living in the Buffalo Bill circus with a cadre of female bodyguards, also Africa-born. This tantalizing conversation clue us in the latest occupations and location of the missing Amazons who disappeared in 1894 after the conquest of Dahomey by the French Imperial army.
                                          Victoria was good with the sword but Makim proved stronger, faster and determined to take her head.

                                          immortality by Natsuta

                                          Toshiro Nakayata was the most skilled swordsmith of 14th century Japan and an immortal; Natsuta the warmonger must have sensed Toshiro's potential when he recruited him in his army in 1379 instead of taking his head, and kept him at his service, in charge of crafting weapons for his soldiers. Toshiro stayed as such until well into the 16ht century when Hattori, in a gesture of good grace, gave him his freedom and sent him on his way. Even since, Toshiro has been keeeping his head on his shoulders by crafting the best swords, cutlasses and katanas for any immortal challenging him... or otherwise.
                                          Ennemies, friends, lovers... all have received a weapon from his forge, in exchange for a huge sum of money. His prices are high, but none of his swords ever broke in battle and their carriers still live to this day.

                                          June Sengu, 2015


                                          Toshiro has been challenged by Frederika Toth, his skills with the sword proved superior as well as the quality of his blade. Toshiro took Toth out of the Game but I am afraid he underwent the same personality change as Toth and is now ander the thrall of a Dark Quickening, killing people randomly across Greater Tokyo area, immortals or mortals, none are spared.

                                          June Sengu, Dec; 2016

                                          Toshiro Nakayata was faced by Keiko Watanabe who sought to avenge the death of her friend, Frederika Toth. Was Keiko aware Toshiro was under the spell of a Dark Quickening I am not sure because sdhe fought him with vigor and when she defeated him she didn’t recoil from the kill and from taking her ennemy’s life-essence. Keiko Watanabe knew Toshiro from way back in the 1800’s when he forged a replacement blade for her in 1832 after it was brothen in combat by Ramelan fo the Batak, but she didn’t know him as her ennemy then. She may have relflected that time changes even the best of men and that the once noble warrior/swordsmith evolved by himself into a crazed killer. I am following Keiko, hoping the good-natured woman that she is doesn’t turn into a rampaging monster.

Miki didn’t understand why Keiko turned on her, the look of hurt and betryal on her face was terrible, it may have been her downfall. In the Game, Miki trusted no one but Keiko and she fell not knowing her friend was locked up somewhere in her own mind, prisoner of a Dark Quickening.

                                          Some times Immortals do not need a motive to kill each others, the incentive to fight comes from a taste for battles, the need for a Quickening, for added power and this is what happens when two Immortal soldiers meet each other during wartime.

                                          who laughed, killed him and then mentored him

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

                                          From the Chronicle of Derek Markham :

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

                                          Christiane has done very well in the Game, as well as putting her mark in the history of women in sports, pionnering the career of many women in activities such as horseriding, boxing, balloon flight, ice skating, volley bal and many others, showing to a male world that women have been worthy competitors ever since Kynista, a Spartian princess, won a race in the Olympic Games of 396 BC. One of the few immortal women to survive in the Game, Christiane had to fight off the utter contempt and hatred of countless men (both mortals and immortals) who viewed her as nothing more than target practice. The 'target practice' had centuries to hone her skills and to make herself a wel-deserved place in the world and might surprise everybody when she finds herself among the last surviors who will fight to the finish for the legendary Prize. In any case, she will be remembered as the immortal woman who had Nike gave her name to an ew brand of running shoe, the 'Swoopes Shoe'.

                                          Christianne Krause wanted to put her mark on the 2017 Marathon of London and she was quite a success, finishing among the twenty first runners, but the Game is ever-present and when she faced Grant Makim she was already exhausted after so much runnings. She offered to answer his challenge later, but Grant is a releltless killer who knows no delay. Christianne was one of the best fighters I nthe Game but somehow even the best lose their fire after centuries of playing the Game. When shekilled Fernao Gonçlves in Brazil, shedecided ot reire from the Game. Grant Makim wouldn’t allow her some peace and he proved the best with a sword when he faced the Austrian woman.

                                          Patrick Lynch became a mentor to serial killer Bryce Korland in the 19th century after he got his frozen body out of thawing waters. He inspired him into writing epic fantasy and poetry and delving into his dark side, triggering his taste for fire and murder, leaving James Colte and Duncan MacLeod to clean his mess up in 1958. He is the most wanted arsonist and killer in today America with his proudest achievemtn being the fires he triggered all though American history.

                                          The clinically-paranoid bastard killed Faruz Kassar and the poor guy wasn’t even aware of his Immortality. Faruz integrated Bologna very well and was curious as a child regarding the activities of prosperous members of the Bolognese community. He certainly didn’t listen to the warning sense he felt when he approached Coco Lezzone restaurant and Cardoza didn’t even bother giving him a lecture on the rules of Immortality. Didn’t he care ?
                                          Annyway, Faruz uncovered Cardoza’s past as a hitman in the 1990’s and nearly reuined Coco Lezzone’s reputation in town, Cardoza dismissing the rumors as rubbishes. Still, he came after Kassar and discreetly had him kidnapped, taken to an isolated location where he disposed of him, immortal-style.

                                          DeBrabant after Anne killed immortal Guy Brel

                                          Since the moment when she was mentored and trained by Anne DeBrabant in 2000, Balquis has been searchign for a sense to her existence, a purpose to her Immortal life. She fell in the wrong crowd with the offshoot group of the Eternal Swords of Allah who sougth to brign retribution to the Western world for the countless damages caused by the Orient and what better way to strike against the Great Satan than by gatheirgn a team of Immortal fighters dedicated to strike terror in the capital citieso fEurope.For fifteen years, Balquis and her new friends dedicated themselves to killing, bombing and terrorizign innocent civiians from Paris, to Berlin, Berlin to Brussels, occasionally killing Immortals and bieng the champions of the 2014-founded Caliphate of Iraq and the Levant. Asservants of ISIL they performed extremely well, until Kyra and Deoneces of Sparta quickly and swiftly destroyed Matoub and Balquis ‘ group, leaving only Balquis as survivor.

                                          Balquis has been missing since November 2015 when she organized the massacre at the Parisian Bataclan concert hall and is suspected of having manipulated Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel into murdering eighty-seven people in the French city of Nice on the evening of the 14 July 2016. She now has the Spartan Warriors, Kashta of Nubia, Sit-Hathor Iunet and Burchard of Alsace hot on her trails and with such powerful furies after her, she may not have long to live. Let’s hope however, that no more mortals have to suffer from her actions.

                                          Finally it was Agathe Vierny who found Balquis in Brussels where the woman was preparing a set of terrorist attacks in the city’s centertown. God knows how many civilians would have been killed if not for the combined efforts of Burchard, Agathe, the Spartan tag-teams and Kashta of Nubia in destrying Balquis’ network. Agathe was the one who took the head and Quickening, severing anotgher head of the ISIL hydra, though wewonder how many more are lurking in the Occident, ready to strike

                                          Omar Matoub spent two years running from Kyra and Deoneces of Sparta after the Eternal Swords of Allah were destroyed by the two Spartan warriors. In 1992 he was found in Rome, a place were he hid, preparing the Jihad against Occidental immmortals but was found again, and nearly killed by Kyra. He escaped with his life, his small group of mortal followers dismantled by Kyra and Deoneces.
                                          In 2011, the Immortal War broke out. Omar spent the two years of the war proving weapons and informations to the Muslim immortals who targeted innocent immortals everywheren and especially in London. The Secret Daggers couldn't find him, he is with no doubt in a place of hiding in the Sultanate of Daesh plotting the demise of more immortals.

                                          Since November 2015's killings in Paris; Omar Matoub has been working withg three Jihadist immortals like himself, including a former disciple of Mossane Nkobé, indiscrimnately killing Westerner immortals and murdering civilians with bombs. Ravenwood is on the lookout for him, the two Spartans are coming the cities of Europe searching for him, with help from Kashta of Nubia and Sit-Hathor Iunet, overseeing immortals activities from Brussels, Belgium.

                                          Alexandra Quirk had only six years to protect the endangered species she loved so. In this brief lifespan she went from the gulf of Mexico to Southern Africa, hunting poachers who kil rhinos and elephants, struck a friendship with Olapede Chukwu, then she returned to Australia to the Blue Lake region, studying the local wildlife until she was challenged by Immortal poacher and player of the Game Samuel Ferguson whose business she jeopardized after she tried an operation against poachers preying on kangaroos.
                                          She was an activist involved with the World Wide Fund for Nature and had gained quite a few skills of the sword thanks to Rodis and Chukwu. Those skills weren’t enough against Samuel Ferguson, she would have needed decades in the Game to outlast him.

                                            Challenged Raymond d’Amboise to a duel, lost

                                            In 1743 the Hellfire Club triggered the London Riots against Gin Taxes and other legislation to control the Gin Craze, principally the Gin Act 1736; rioting was fuelled by consumption of the drink itself in clandestine pubs held by the Club. The Club's Black Bishop came after one of the SIS and ran when the fight turned to his disadvantage. He re-appeared in New-York with the other members of the Club, running a pub network. Kedgick got in conflict with the Club’s White Queen and disappeared, presumably killed by the untrusting Elfrid of York or by Serena Harper who had a protective stance toward the Cvlub’s pre-Immortal proteges, the Hellions.

                                            Roderick Kingsley fancied himself a master of mystical arts and often invoked the power of Azaroth and Lucifer during ceremonies involving human sacrifices. When he murdered the young pre-Immortals used as pawns by the Hellfire Club, he went too far. Aldrich Monk confronted him and cast him out of the Club, but Roderick wanted the power and wrestled control of the Club leadership by challenging Monk. The fight ended with the death of Kingsley, the young people he murdered, all recruited from the streets of Boston, Baltimore, Philadelphia and New-York between 1888 and 1898, were now trapped in the bodies of children and pre-teens,deemed useless by Aldrich Monk. Serena Harper had other ideas, though, and developped the children into a cadre of spies and street urchins who became the Hellions in New-York and reivented themseves as the Baker Street Irregulars of London, after the characters of Arthur Conan Doyle.

                                            If eyes are the mirror of the soul, then Arxel de Tavira had none : everyone who met him said his eyes were black and lifeless, the eyes of a tiger prawning for prey. And indeed Arxel was a tiger preying on Chilean natives, raping and killing for his own pleasure. He was remorseless, manipulative and hid his true nature behind a combination of youthful charm and chutzpah which allowed him to function in society.
                                            He helped fund the Chilean War of Independence, posing as a hero of the people, while behind he butchered Mapuche women, his crimes becoming as feared as would be the serial murders of Jack the Ripper in the London of 1888. Eventually the Mapuche community sought the help of a half-godess who lived near Santiago, the Immortal woman today known as Carmen Morales who hunted the perpetrator down and found him to be a fellow Immortal. Arxel had just butchered his eighth victim, leaving her remains on the hills surrounding Santiago as he always does, thus making him easy to find for an apt tracker like Carmen. His chronicle ended in a fury of lightings, the freak storm saluting the passing of one of the most infamous serial killers of the 19th century.

                                            Like all men of his time, Prejun Casamayor considered the Spanish as superior to the savages living half-naked in the jungles and had no qualms using them as workforce for the developpment of the Maracaibo city and taking Indian girls to his bed. Until a rebellion of the Llaneros erupted, led by Immortal Alexei Miguez who faced Casamayor and took the vain man out of the Game. Casamayor felt outraged a Llanero ddared challenged him. The fight was quick, the look on his face was priceless when he fell to his knees.

                                            We don’t know how many she killed precisely in one century of immortal life, one dozen at most because she lived in a place where Immortals travelled through one country to another and Iraq was at the crossroad of the Middle East since the heyday of Babylon. Izdihar was a tyoung Immortal but she played the Game with a passion only matched by her prowesses in bed. A mistress of the sword and of sexuality, luring men like moths to the flame. Her last known quarry was Selim Ubadah who was en route to Hatra when he was taken by a desert sand storm and lost for a time, his Watcher having presumably suffocated to death I nthe sand. 400 AD Immortals census for Middle Eastern countries lists Izdihar among the missing.
                                            She may have seduced Selim Ubadah and may have been killed by him.

                                            general of the Rashidun army

                                            It may have been his encounter with serial murderess Izdihar of Araba that taught Selim Ubadah how deadly Immortal women can be in the Game, like praying mantises prawning for quuarries. Whichiswhy he showed no mercy to Mira of Caspiane, a once doomed lover mentored by Khojasteh of the Sassanids. Khojasteh married the young woman and taught her the ways of the Game, of the sword, insistent that she was to become his equal in all things. Khojasteh was open-minded but it is also his sword that led him to his final battle agaisnt General Darius and from then on, Mira had to survive on her own. We have a very fragmented chronicle for Mira, but she became a courtesan, a whore, a holy woman at Medina and lately a warrioress defending Caspiane agaisst Arab forces led by Selim Ubadah. Mira used scare tactics against Selim’s men, apparing out of nowhere like a djinn with a squadron of deadly women armed with short sword, cuttign throats and taking names, so to speak. Eventually, Selim hunted the dozen of women led by Mira, killed them all and finished Mira of Caspiane in a quick fight. The Djinn of Caspiane was gone.

                                            The 1453 Chronicle of the Fall of Constantinople list four Immortals present durign the Ottoman siege of the city : Thanos of Athens, pre-Immortal Cristos Savakis, Sabite Bayar the Ottoman archer and Anatolian assassin Jenna of Edessa. Durign the 53 days which the siege lasted, she infiltrated Ottoman troops disguised as an Ottoman prostitute, killing one senior officer after the other in nightly encounters, in the vain hope of delaying the inevitable fall of Constantinople. Jenna wasn’t aware one of the Ottoman archers was an Immortal, and a woman, but it was too late when she sensed her presence : an arrow through her heart ended her murdering spree, her head discreetly separated from her body – the ensuing Quickenign was explained by Sabite as a freak storm. During the siege, the young Cristos Savakis was killed and mentored by Thanos of Athens who witnessed the Quickening from afar. His chronicle for 1453 ended there, as his Watcher was killed during the three days of plundering which followed the Fall; Thanos chronicle was recovered by a team of Watcher historians one decade,thus helping to put together the story of the Fall of Constantinople as seen by the Watchers.

                                            conflict against Irene of Antioch

                                            The Museum of Anatolian Civilizations is located on the south side of Ankara Castle in the Atpazarı area in Ankara, Turkey. It consists of the old Ottoman bazaar storage building, and an Ottoman caravanserai located in the Old Town of Skopje. It is in the area of Museum of Macedonia. It has served as an inn and as a prison.
                                            In the museum is an ancient sarcophagus representing a Carthagianian priestess dated to the 3rd century/2nd century BC and which was recovered on the digging site of ancient Carthage. The remains of a woman were found inside, she had seemingly died from decapitation and been buried with the honors due to her position in the Carthaginian society. Watcher historians assigned to the Museum did some research work and found how Immortal Julius Scipio (aka Scipio Africanus) had been in conflict against a Carthaginian priestess and Immortal named Arishat, later found to have been a disciple of the fabled Ishtar of Erech.
                                            The reason of the conflict was found : it happened arounf 49-44 BC at the time of Carthage' reconstruction by the Roman Empire; Scipio was one of the architects of Carthage's destruction during the Third Punic War in 146 BC. The Third Punic War was a mini-Gathering of Immortals as several of them were involved : Jamal Soliman, Maharbal of Carthage, Tetramnestus, the Kurgan,
                                            Karmanshar and Tomyris, at this time members of Carthage’s ruling council nd finally Ayzebel of Berytus. Talk about History spawning Immortals : Ayzebel and Tetramnestus met their First Deaths during the fall of Carthage.
                                            Arishat seemingly never forgot, nor forgave the destruction of her city and the massacre of her people. She fought Scipio and Scipio put the woman's ghosts to rest.

                                              Okay, here's the final part of the SIN EATER SAGA:

                                              Abigail Crane, aka The Sin Eater VIII

                                              Background
                                              Original cultural affiliation: French-English, French
                                              mother, English father
                                              Born: 1918, Lille, France
                                              First death: 1943; SOE Agent working with Yugoslav
                                              partisans, killed in ambush by Chetniks
                                              First teacher: Absalom Finch, aka The Sin Eater VI
                                              Known associates: None
                                              Known past associates: Absalom Finch

                                              First recorded sighting: 1943, Eastern Bosnia.
                                              Mentored by Absalom Finch, at this time serving as
                                              a medic, in return for access to German prisoners

                                              Abigail Crane is the first female Immortal to bear the title of The Sin Eater. Unlike her predecessors, Crane's murders are a means to an end: revenge.
                                              When Absalom Finch found Abigail following her First Death in an ambush, he not only became her mentor but also her lover, despite the apparent age gap. Even after she found out about his true nature and the legacy he carried, she still loved him, although she refused to follow in his footsteps.
                                              All that changed in November 1956, when she returned to the apartment they shared in Paris and discovered the decapitated body of Finch. Grief-stricken, she picked up Finch's sword and scoured the streets for his killer, but found nothing.

                                              It would be a full decade before she found out who killed her lover and the group of Immortals to which she belonged. Another ten years of research to uncover everything she could about the SIS and its activities. Then she set about planning her revenge, a long-term plan. She entered law enforcement and took up the mantle of the Sin Eater, knowing it would eventually draw the attention of Allegra Chambers and her compatriots. She used her job to cover her tracks as she killed "sinners" and utilised her mimicry skills to pose as a man while killing, so Immortals would hunt for the wrong perpetrator, as would their mortal counterparts in law enforcement.

                                              For Abigail, killing Allegra Chambers is not enough, destroying her world first is. So she used her work and skills to plant evidence and lead investigating Immortals where she wanted to lead them: to innocent Immortals she had decided to implicate as a dry run for what she intended to do to Chambers. Two Immortals have been framed and killed in the last decade as Abigail hones her talents. Preparing for the time when Allegra Chambers falls into her web.

                                              From the Chronicle of the Secret Immortals Society

                                              Since transferring to DC, Abigail has already made her mark as the Sin Eater. Three bodies have been dragged out of the Potomac in the last six weeks; the leader of a local Latino street gang, a sleazy lawyer with links to organised crime, and a suspected paedophile. The Director has already set up a task force which we've been assigned to and i suspect, as before, all the evidence will point to a male perp. At some point, the mark of The Sin Eater will be found and before long, word will get back to the UK and a certain centuries-old female Immortal with unfinished business. When she comes to Washington, she'll be walking into Abigail's intricate trap.

                                              • Great bio, Apollo! Good finale to the Sin Eater saga... with socres to settle for Allegra Chambers.
                                                I wonder who are those Immortals who were framed by Abigail. Btw, here is a good pic for her... Gillian Anderson as Scully, looking a bit sinister.

                                                Cheers!

                                                  There is a legend in Southern Asia that Sau Bau Gyi, once a feared warlord, took the head of an Immortal holy woman of the Kingdom of Mrauk U in the Bengali Empire and was changed forever, forsaking his armies and turning into a man of peace. While this story is a reflection of the tale of Darius, Gothic general tunred monk, it is true however : Faneesh Sidkar lived for 150 years in the Empire of Bengal and tended to a shrine site when her homeland was invaded by the Burmese in 1785. Sau Bau Gyi was forbidden, as all Immortals, to take a headon Holy Ground,s so he had his soldiers pull Faneesh from her place and took her head before his men, earning the reputation of a demon who could invoke lightnings and thunder at will.
