  • 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....

      First recorded sighting : 1918. Amman, Jordania
      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.

      Victor : Dania of Hamman
      Watcher : Research, Western Asia

      Background
      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
      Known past associates : Ahaziah of Ramoth-
      Gilead
      First recorded sighting : 300 Hebron, Palestine
      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.

      Known ennemies : Marcus Constantine
      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.

      Victor : Xanthia of Melitus
      Watcher : Research, The Chronicle of Xanthia

      Background
      Original cultural affiliation : Yemenite
      Born : 2nd century BC Kingdom of Qataban,
      Southern Yemen
      First death : Warrior killed protecting Royal family
      during war agaisnt neighboring Himyar Kingdom
      First teacher : Haytham of Sabah, mercenary
      Known past associates : Haytham of Sabah
      Known ennemies : Xanthia of Melitus
      First recorded sighting : 118 BC Peninsular Arabia
      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.

      Known ennemies : Simon de Miranda
      First recorded sighting : 1616, Mexico. Taken as
      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.

      Echijole Jimah fought and killed an Immortal of undetermined background the 26th of February, a black muslim who turned out to be the missing Mohamed Baghlani, once killed in a provoked car accident in 1977. The former Arab insurgent was living in Pointe-Noire as a mergers & acquisitions entrepreneur and tried to steal the Anzaku Coppers company Echijole is running. Well, Echjole is the one who acquired Mohamed’s Quickenign and merged it with her own lifeforce.

      Belgian Congo. Conducting miner’s strike
      protesting forced-labor regime the Belgians
      imposed on the population because of the "war efforts"

      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.

      Isn't she a beautiful little girl ? Good with her feet, her fists, using agility and mobility too. The knife to the throat, the Immortal can't breathe and is paralysed. Then she whips out her wicked little sword and whoops ! "Dad, I took my breakfast, it was yummy ! I am full". She is a little wasp. Wth all the rapes and murder she suffered upon First Death she suffered, she still has nightmares about it. Recurring ones, even after years of therapy and healing. But her dad is here, he is going to protect her until the Gathering, and beyond.

      Known ennemies : High Fitzcairn
      First recorded sighting :: 1511. Westmisnter,
      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.

      • Another good set of chronicles, my friend!

        Meanwhile, here's the last Immortal victim of Absalom Finch's mental manipulations, before i post the chronicle of the man himself. If you could fill in the blanks as always, it would be much appreciated:

        • 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!

          Known past associates : Ottavio Consone
          First recorded sighting : 1568. Guayaquil, Ecuador
          Encounter with Ottavio Consone, at this time a
          captain of Spanish army at Real Audiencia of Quito

          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.

            Background
            Original cultural affiliation : Rushallan
            Born : 1907, Northern Algeria
            First death : 1930, Hit by lightning during storm
            while travelling in the desert
            First teacher : Evliya Celebi

            mentored by Celebi.

            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.

            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.

            her scam with pre-immortal Sherlock Holmes

            Nell set her sights on Elliot Harding, a fellow immortal. 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.

            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 ?

            Trained by Selim Ubadah

            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.

            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.

                Re: Radoslaw Bujak, Bruno Falck

                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.

                  From the Records of the Tribunal
                  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.

                  Miletus, Uzzah of Judah
                  Known ennemies : Lucius Oranius Captio
                  First recorded sighting : 598 BC. Jerusalem,
                  Judea. During invasion of Judea and conquest of
                  Jerusalem by King Nabuchnedezzer II, identified
                  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.

                      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.

                      Mariman

                      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 !”

                      • Another great group of chronicles, my friend!

                        Meanwhile, here's the man himself, and a little preview of the Immortal who currently holds the title of The Sin Eater:

                        Absalom Finch, aka The Sin Eater VI

                        Known aliases: Arthur Flynn, Artemis Finn
                        Notable characteristics: Charismatic; brilliant mind,

                        Place: Paris
                        Victor: Allegra Chambers, SIS
                        Watcher: Jean-Pierre La Coure

                        Background
                        Original cultural affiliation: English
                        Born: 1798, Norwich, England
                        First death: 1850; run down and killed by runaway
                        coach, suspected murder by relative of one of his
                        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.

                        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.

                          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.

                          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.

                          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.

                          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.

                          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.

                          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.

                          Ipswich to Bedford. Tried to rob Swenja and Lootje
                          who laughed, killed him and then mentored him

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

                          From the Chronicle of Derek Markham :

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

                          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.

                          against Duncan MacLeod

                          1789-94 : Australia. Posing as a British offcier stationed with the New South Wales Corps, Duncan MacLeod gets in conflict with corrupt colonial administrator Francis Grose. When Grose's actions cause the needless deaths of several British offciers during a convicts revolt, MacLeod takes action and sanctions Grose before being forced to hide in the Australian Bush where he is rescued by shaman Mandawuy. Grose, suffering a public death, is forced to board a ship in the night and to leave Australia.

                          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.

                            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.

                            Immortal mystic, but failed

                            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.

                            During invasion of Phoenicia by the Seleucids, in
                            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.

                            • Another good set of chronicles, my friend, and great update to the Hellfire Club.

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

                              Watcher: Cindy Williams, FBI

                              Background
                              Original cultural affiliation: French-English, French

                              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.

                                  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.

                                    Borghildur made an efficent team with the Baba Yaga (aka Illyana Petrova), the young girl and her grandmother, killing Immortals on behalf of Andre Korda who needed his ennemies disposed of. They have killed scores of Immortals in the two hundred years they have been together, facing prawning headhunters, before parting ways, Borghildur tiring of the old crone and the old woman herself tiring of the little pest‘s tantrums. Did Borghildur eventually kill Baba Yaga, we are not sure, they got on well together. Or maybe Borghildur needed time on her own and the Baba Yaga simply let ‘her grandchild’ go..

                                    and Methos, as Bellerophon’s mentor and killed by
                                    his former disciple

                                    Prometheus was always considered an apocryphal Immortal in the chronicles, i.e one whose real identity was unknownd and/or existence unverified. It is once again to the credit of the Ancient Immortals Watcher Research team that we could put a proof of Prometheus’ existence from the chronicles of the 11th century BC as having been murdered by his own disciple, the fallen hero Bellerophon.
                                    Bellerophon once loved the ancient Immortal Methos and was loved by him. Is is not out place to discuss the ancient Immortal’s sexual life or choices in companions. What matters is that Bellerophon conceived an intense jealousy about Prometheus who also loved Methos and was loved by him. The amorous triangle between the three Immortals ended tragically when Bellerophon challenged his former teacher and killed him. Ironically, Methos killed Bellerophon two hundred years later after he joined three horsemen wearing masks, riding to the sun.
                                    Was it the death of Prometheus which drove Methos over the edge. We shall never know, unless Methos himself decides to tell all.

That Immortal may well have been Melike Tanju, a captain in the Ottoman armies at the time and hater of the Christian world; he must have been thrilled to have killed a ‘traitor’ who once married a Christian knight in 1270.

We were surprised to learn she had been challenged and killed by French crusader Pascal Chaussende in 1099 durign the First Crusade when she rebuked Pascal’s advances. Pascal had a way with Christian women, using them as pawns in the Game, and he belived Mahnaz would be no diferent. But this is a different breed of Christian who surprised Pascal with her Moorish broadsword and she challenged him herself. Strong as an ox, brave as a lion, with the heart of a coward : Pascal cheated an weakened Mahnaz with a throwing dagger rubbed in poison. Mahanz fell to the Frenchman at the same time his men were conquering and pillaging her homeland.

                                    In the 9th century, Tehran was a well known village, but less known than the city of Rhages, which the Oghuz Turks invaded discretely in 1035 and 1042, but the city was recovered under the reigns of the Seljuks and the Khwarezmians.[ In Rhages lived an Immortal woman, a scholar and pacifist who kept away from the Game and didn't even carry a sword. She cocnetrated on raising her children and writign poetry. The Oghuz Turk who raped her and killed her was unidentified but it is written she offered him her virtue and her life to him in exchange for the life of her children. The Turk laughed, took her by force and murdered her children.

                                    Once, in a joke, Deoneces’ sirens asked him if he had ever slept with a man. Deoneces answered seriously that it happened to him in 334 BC during the conquest of Anatolia by Alexander the Great. One night, after a day of fighting, exhausted, he visited the army’s ambulant brothel and found himself in the company of a fellow Immortal, Polyxenus, a former disciple of Cleophon fo Athens, who had changed gender and followed the armies of Alexander as an expensive prostitute. Deoneces found Polyxenus was as skilled in bed as he was with the sword. His former companion, now known as Polyxena, had changed his lifestyle so much that Deoneces barely recognized him but was forced to admit the truth to the Thracian’s sexuality : this was a woman much like Kyra or Seraphina, trapped in the body of a man. Deoneces wasn't repulsed by Polyxenus' appearance, a man who voluntarily had himself castrated and whore women's clothing, because he respected the mental and physical pain he went through and chose the hardest way for an Immortal to spend eternity : neither man, nor woman, living between both worlds.

                                    Research is in motion to fhe final fate and, possibly, current whereabouts of Polyxena, one of the first recorded transgender Immortals of the antique world.

                                    • Another great set of chronicles, my friend. An interesting addition to the story of Deoneces with Polyxenus, a new side to the fearsome Spartan which i liked very much. Well done! Lol

                                      After more than a century on Holy Ground scheming and plotting, Aldrich Monk and Elfrida of York, now calling herself Evangeline Black, returned to the mainland of Scotland and set about rebuilding their powerbase. While Evangeline headed east toward the bigger towns, Aldrich was hungry for a Quickening, something he hadn't had for over a hundred years. Still disguised in the robes of a humble monk, he scoured the west coast of Scotland, until arriving in the small fishing village of Melvaig, where he found Mary of Lincoln. Unarmed and unprepared, she was easy prey for the ruthless, misogynistic Aldrich, who first gained her trust and then took her head and her Quickening.

                                      From the Chronicle of the Hellfire Club

                                      Mary just wanted a quiet life. She had no time for the Game, avoiding other Immortals at all costs. Despite the words of advice of the Immortal who had found and attempted to train her, Mary rejected the offer of a sword, insisting that warfare was not for women. Warned by her teacher that Immortals would come for her head despite her beliefs, Mary chose to hide away from the big towns and cities, choosing small villages and remote settlements, living a peaceful life.
                                      Until the day the mysterious Immortal monk came to the quiet village of Melvaig. He spoke kind words to Mary and lived under her roof for several weeks, before betraying her in her own garden, taking her head from behind. Coward and deceiver!

                                        de la Plata, Argentina. Encounter with Simon de
                                        Miranda, hunting him by using a local Argentine
                                        Immortal child

                                        They may look like a pair of little lolitas but those are cruel and manipulative vixens, remorseless sociopaths who play the Game for thrills and for the power of the shared Quickenings. There aren’t a lot of Immortalslike those two : identical twins. There were the Hauser brothers, the two Immortals from Shangai in the 19th century and that’s all. Were the Hausers played the Game by destroying the morale of their quarries, Bruna and Camilla use pawns, locating pre-immortal children and teens and using them asbait after they triggered their First Death in staged accidents. They have been destroying countless lives in the 240 years we have been observing their activities and it would be fitting for those two ladies if a pair of Immortals took them out of the Game, instead of a solitary one. Now if they could move to Buenos Aires, there are a pair of smart ladies whose instincts are as sharp as their swords. Unless François Marchete or Kate Greehill get to them first.

                                        Unlike his teacher, Jesus Santiago doesn’t use pawns in the Game, he just contents himslf with impersonating Jesus Christ our savior and since the 17th century there were heated arguments about wether Santiago was actually Christ or not. This is all a matter of faith and until he briefly reunited with Gavriel Larca in 1990 and was identified as his past student, we started believing his wild tales about him beign the Second Coming. As a matter of fact, Gavriel belived he was God made man and he turned out to be an impostor. So his Santiago to our collective relief. There was once a chronicle for Christ, describing him an an Immortal disgusted by mankind, a fornicator and wanderer, but the chronicle was proven a falsehood.
                                        Jesus Christ, the historical figure, did meet some Immortal like Cleophon of Athens, Cassandra, Lazarus and possibly Cassius Marius (aka Brother Paul), but those tales are apocryphal at best and the miracle of resurrection attributed to the Christ remains a matter of faith.

                                        We always felt taking the head of an Immortal in Easter Island was aking to killing on Holy Grounds, explaining possibly why Koteoho has been safe in her little world for the past three hundred years since she met Jacob Van Houten, Dutch explorer and one of the more benevolent Immortals from the European continent. Only once did she leave her island when the Rapa-Nui were deported en masse to Peru in the 1860’s for decades of slavery, working in the mines. It is a miracle that she survived deportation with the aggressive players of the Game cruising for an easy kill; when she came back, her people had been decimated by smallpox and she felt loney and isolated inside a very reduced community.
                                        Today Koteoho hunts illegal fishermen and promotes her people’s civil rights. She keeps her gladius sharp for the coming Gathering because this is one tough lad who won’t go down without a fight as she told Duncan MacLeod when she managed to land him in her bed!

                                        In 1973, a military junta, led by General Augusto Pinochet, took control of Chile. The first years of the regime were marked by human rights violations. On October 1973, at least 72 people were murdered by the Caravan of Death, the Chilean army death squad led by Immortal Arturo Barba, Dominican-born and former lieutnant in the army of General Franco durign the Spanish Civil War.
                                        Nuela Montavez protested the rise to power of General Pinochet and paid a heavy price for it when Arturo Barba came after her and had her arrested for interrogation. Two weeks after her disappearance, her decapitated body was found near the slums of Santiago. Her student, Jimena Garbajosa, was safe, however, having fled to Cuba where she was reunited with Mexican revolutionnary and fellow Immortal Juanita Vasquez with whom she joined the Nicaraguan Sandinista army and learnt to use the arts of warfare agaisnt such ennemies of freedom and democracy as Pinochet.
                                        Forty years later, Jimena not only tries to find the whereabouts of Pinochet's victims so she can bring peace to their surviving relatives but she also hunts the perpeptrators of atrocities comitted agaisnt the Chilean people. She knows Arturo Barba is still out there, somewhere, living safe in Chile and not even a favor from God will help he Dominican Immortal when Jimena finds him.

                                        In 1973, a military junta, led by General Augusto Pinochet, took control of Chile. The first years of the regime were marked by human rights violations. On October 1973, at least 72 people were murdered by the Caravan of Death, the Chilean army death squad led by Immortal Arturo Barba, Dominican-born and former lieutnant in the army of General Franco durign the Spanish Civil War.
                                        Nuela Montavez protested the rise to power of General Pinochet and paid a heavy price for it when Arturo Barba came after her and had her arrested for interrogation. Two weeks after her disappearance, her decapitated body was found near the slums of Santiago. Her student, Jimena Garbajosa, was safe, however, having fled to Cuba where she was reunited with Mexican revolutionnary and fellow Immortal Juanita Vasquez with whom she joined the Nicaraguan Sandinista army and learnt to use the arts of warfare agaisnt such ennemies of freedom and democracy as Pinochet.
                                        Forty years later, Jimena not only tries to find the whereabouts of Pinochet's victims so she can bring peace to their surviving relatives but she also hunts the perpeptrators of atrocities comitted agaisnt the Chilean people. She knows Arturo Barba is still out there, somewhere, living safe in Chile and not even a favor from God will help he Dominican Immortal when Jimena finds him.

                                        possibly lovers

                                        The love that daren’t say its name : homosexual love between Immortal men is rare and not as easy to find as are lesbian relationships (i.e Gabriela de Savedra & Carmen Morales) but it does exist. Hareh Clay and Carter Wellan have professed their love for each other for centuries and Carlos Montoya always demonstrated his feelings to his students when he felt they could play in his league, so to speak.
                                        We were never too sure about Adriano Pacheco : was he truly hetero sexual or simply an homosexual forced to live in a machist, sexually-repressed environment and who couldn’t live with the feelings Carlos had for him ? Adriano lived for one hundred years before Dante Luna took him out of the Game, but though he was rarely seen consorting with young men, he was never seen with a woman either. Had he lived one century more, he could have felt free to live as he wished, a true shame.

                                        For fifty years it was never possible to separate the chronicle of Modesto Anjos with the chronicle of Eulogio Guajira, two Immortal scum made of the same flesh and blood who set foot Colonial Brazil by the middle of the 18th century and stayed there for five decades, making a name for themselves as slavers and fortune hunters. At some point they met conquistador Joao Soares de Almeida who didn’t bother taking their heads after he defeated them in single combat and instead hired them as bodyguards and slave-hunters.
                                        Their association lasted two years, Soares disappeared in the jungles of Brazil in 1750, leaving his hirelings to their fate. Watcher Research theorized “Anjos” and Guajira” could have been Lymon Kurlow and Peter Matlin reinventing themselves as two Portuguese and with Immortals such as Tak Ne the Egyptian living under the name of Juan Sanchez Villalobos Ramirez, well, who’s to say this isn’t true ? Of course it would mean they ran into trouble against Immortal "Andromeda Valdez" who may have killed then, and Kurlow & Matlin died against Duncan MacLeod in 1805 in England.

                                        Royal Audience of Quito

                                        Why did a warrior like Hijo de la Luna of the Oriente chose to become the bodyguard of the governor of Ecuador is unknown, our best theory is that he was mentored/enslaved by a Spaniard Immortal who turned him over to the Spanish world, decades before he was mentored by Immortal Carmen Morales. Carmen once told the story of an Oriente warrior clad in Spanish army armor who challenged her in 1570 and lost against her superior skills. She let him live to be followed by a local Watcher who wrote the chronicle of a muscular Immortal of Quito. Lluna had the reputation of being invicible in battle and an unkillable bodyguard of the local governor.
                                        There was indignous resistance against Spanish colonization of Ecuardor, led by Inca warrior Ruminahui, bodyguarded by then pre-immortal Lluna, in theory. In 1534, Conquistador Sebastián de Benalcázar (possibly an Immortal himself) captured Rumiñahui and killed him, endign the resistance.
                                        The earthquake of 1797 killed Lluna’s Watcher and nothing has been told about Lluna since.

                                        Robert Henry Morgan, aka Robert de Valicourt

                                        Robert de Valicourt nearly lost his head against Felicitas Camardan in 1669 when she married the pirate ship captain and tried to take his head on their wedding night. A M.O that seems to remidn of Sarah d’Abbeville who also murdered her husband Sean McLaughlin before taking his ship, his wealth and his crew, cluing us in the possible identity of Fdelicitas’ first teacher. She certainly took after her manner because she killed hundreds of rich mortals in the 330 years we have been following her and she took her fair share of Quickenings too. The latin counterpart to Sarah McLaughlin and Nell Fagin made her mark on this world before her disappearance in 1999, one hope she finally met the final fate fitting her, at the end of an Immortal’s sharp sword.

                                        There is a legend, about her, explaining her behavior : that early in her life she was forced into killing a male Latin Immortal and the Quickening overloaded an other wise good personality. The Immortal was a devil of a man, so wicked and cruel that Felicitas had no choice but to take his head. The Immortal was a Native Venezuelan, a Yamomani who ruled over his tribe and ate the flessh of conquistadores and bandeirantes he capured. He captured Felicitas, raped and and tortured her until finally she managed to escape her bonds and killed him herself with her cutlass. Ever since, she has been killing indiscriminately, eating the hearts of men like the praying mantis she is.

                                        Hugh Fitzcairn certainly had a way with ladies when it came to bring them to his bed, less so when it came to teach them the ways of Immortality, the swords, Immortal lore. He simply had no patience with a fierce Catholic Brazilian woman like Pamela and he failed as a tutor. Connor MacLeod he was not. Instead of turning the sexual assault victim into a competent player of the Game, he gave her the fear of God, so to speak and let her on her own once the English deserted colonial Brazil. Having been raped by Englishmen, Pamela wouldn’t have been in the mood of listening to an Englishman, anyway.

                                        In seventy years of Immortal life, Pamela stayed on her own, moving from one convent to another one, occasionally working in a brothel to make a living and only once taking another Immortal woman under her wing, with whom she hared her fear of the Game, of Immortals. In 1539, both women met Giuseppa Polo, a socialite and player of the Game who nearly killed them before Antonio Pettisani took her head. In those moments of terrors they found Immortal women could be as distrutful as men and found out about the power of the Quickenig : its frightening beauty, its power, how it can change and shape an Immortal.

                                        A talk with Pettisani convinced them that they would either have to train seriously or they wouldn't outlive the 17th century. The Field Watcher assigned to Pamela and Abril was killed in a mugging during the carnival of Rio in 1641 and so we lost their trace. Did they train like Pettisani instructed them to, did they find an Immortal they could trust ? Or are they still out there cowering in a convent ? Unless finally, a player of the Game mercifully put the two ladies out of their misery.

                                        In 1973, a military junta, led by General Augusto Pinochet, took control of Chile. The first years of the regime were marked by human rights violations. On October 1973, at least 72 people were murdered by the Caravan of Death, the Chilean army death squad led by Immortal Arturo Barba, Dominican-born and former lieutnant in the army of General Franco durign the Spanish Civil War.
                                        Nuela Montavez protested the rise to power of General Pinochet and paid a heavy price for it when Arturo Barba came after her and had her arrested for interrogation. Two weeks after her disappearance, her decapitated body was found near the slums of Santiago. Her student, Jimena Garbajosa, was safe, however, having fled to Cuba where she was reunited with Mexican revolutionnary and fellow Immortal Juanita Vasquez with whom she joined the Nicaraguan Sandinista army and learnt to use the arts of warfare agaisnt such ennemies of freedom and democracy as Pinochet.
                                        Forty years later, Jimena not only tries to find the whereabouts of Pinochet's victims so she can bring peace to their surviving relatives but she also hunts the perpeptrators of atrocities comitted agaisnt the Chilean people. She knows Arturo Barba is still out there, somewhere, living safe in Chile and not even a favor from God will help he Dominican Immortal when Jimena finds him.

                                        Watcher Research allow to find the original teacher of Arturo Barba, an unobtrusive nun by name of Felicidad Dealcruz who had enough temperament to hide an protect negro salves hunted by Barba. She warned Barba against others of his kind but it was Kage seemingly who properly trained him at some point of history : the two men reunited in 1937 durign the Spanish Civil War and Kage recognized in Barba his former disciple.

                                        La Festa de la Mama Negra is a Christian celebration in honor of the Virgin Mary but in secret, Aura Angeloz honors each year the memory of her black nanny, Maritsa Bocanegra who raised her from infancy and became her teacher when she reached adulthood and her First Death. Aura has been careful about mixing with other Immortals, never taking a challenge and seldom leaving Holy Grounds. This is not a woman fit for the Game and Luis Timpantuna who tried to mentor her found out soon how she was allergic to swords and hated the violence of the so-called Game. To play the Game you need passion, a need, a will to survive, you need to have been confronted by the violence of the Immortal world and Aura Angeloz has been living in seclusion for most of her life. Some will say this is not healthy but who are we to judge ? Better live one hundred years in peace and harmony with your environment than one single decade in fear of the sword with your name on it.

                                        • Khadiga
                                          Karim Raschid

                                          In 2017, Khadiga felt the presence of an Immortal in the brothel-city, but that wasn’t one of the women or one of the girls working in the place, rather a customer not aware of his own Immortality who had been killed recently durign the persecutions against his minority, Karim Raschid, a Rohingya Muslim from Burma. Khadiga took him apart and had to explain to the disbelieving man the rules of Immortal life and the Game, the Gathering. Glad to see not all persecuted minorities produce innocent people wxith goodness in their hearts !
                                          Karim Raschid likes young women, even young girls, and he makes the most of it in the brothel-town of Daulardia. Barely one year in Immortality, we do not expect him to live out the decade as he is too busy with girls to think about training with the sword. Not that Khadiga who found him ever bothered to train him seriously. She is too busy catering to the girls and to the women and she has few sympathies for the men who take advantage of their living conditions.

                                          Are Untouchable Immortals in India safe from the Gathering ? Yogesh Sani has been living his immortality in his homeland since his First Death and not one of his “brothers” ever raised a sword against him, not wanting to soil themselves with the Quickening of an Untouchable. With Westerners, however, that’s a different matter : poor Yogesh has been constantly on the move from one region of India to another, to evade the pursuit of European and North African Immortals who do not question wether Yogesh is “pure” or not.

                                          Emomali Nabiyev was captured by ISIL in 2014 and instead of being decapitated by the Immortal leading the Khorasan Province branch of the terrorist organisation, was completely turned over by brainwashing. His public turnover to ISIL triggered a scandal in Tajikistan. On 26 April 2017, a joint raid operation committed by U.S. Army Rangers and Afghan Special Forces in the Nangarhar Province resulted in the death of Sheikh Abdul Hasib, the leader of the Islamic State in Afghanistan. Along with Hasib, a number of other Top Commanders of ISIL were killed, including Nabiyev, reported missing since then.

                                          One of the two ISIL / ESA operative still unaccounted for (along with Emomali Nabiyev in Afghanistan) 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 Middle East and Western European countries.

                                          Revenge is a dish best served cold, Old Klingon proverb, according to Quentin Tarantino. In the 15th century, revenge was a meal served hot and Naajte of Guelders liked it hot, preferably with her sword bathed in the blood of her ennemy. She has been hunting Darek Alak for centuries after he killed her teacher, Mirabelle of Gascony and now this is Michel DeBurgoyne who killed her companion at the Battle of Nancy. She is on the warpath again, killing her ennemy is the only thing that can satisfy her. But how long can an Immortal live with such hatred ? Immortals do carry long grudges (don’t you Antonius Kalas ?) and it can prove to be a burden over time. Mirabelle died in 1186, Darek Alak was killed one century later by Henry of Kent, grandmaster of headhunters-slaying, cheating Naatje out of her revenge. And still she hunts, and still she hates.
                                          What a waste of time can immortality be !

                                          With Velia Fiz and Tome Lluna both Oriente Immortals born in the 15th century, could we possibly have an entire clan of Immortals born in the mountains of Ecuador, similar to the Vinland clan or the BaKongo Immortals ? We lack Immortal tribes in Latin America, unlike what we have in Africa, so there is a possiblity that Velia Fiz is the current survivor of such a tribe and that four of five other Oriente Immortals have been born in the 15th century and were killed by European Immortals. Unless they are surviving out there, somewhere.

                                          First recorded sighting : 206 BC. Cadiz, Iberia
                                          Hunted by then pre-Immortal Scipio Africanus,
                                          rescued by Protiz of Cadiz

                                          Merab of Iberia lived for 1400 years as a Holy Woman and as a bride of Christ after she met Jesus of Nazareth and was moved by his deep goodness and faith in man. She built hundreds of places of worship, gathered thousands of women under the banner of Christian faith in hundreds of convents across Europe and wasn’t without her bite : the iron hand under the velvet glove. She didn't need a sword to fend for herself in the Game, Christ was on her side and no decent Immortal man could resist her triumphant will.
                                          When Blasco Calvo challenged her she came to him unarmed, convinced her faith in Jesus and in men could turn Blasco Calvo into a man of God, a follower of Christ. She never came back to her convent, her body was never found.
                                          Did her resolve falter that one time ? What did Blasco Calvo tell her that night that could turn her from her sisters, from her faith ? We only know Blasco Calvo spoke to her once and that she disappeared forever. Even Jesus of Nazareth doubted once, and his own disciples doubted him.
                                          As for Blasco Calvo, he died a heathen death in 1374 against Henry of Kent, an Immortal as much devoted to Christ as was Merab of Iberia and whose resolve to hunt down headhunters never faltered in nine hundred years of playing the Game.

                                          Hiawassee

                                          Hiawassee has a sixth sense that allows her to detect Immortals at twice the usual range, a useful git from an Immortal who tries to avoid fighting those of his kind. If Hiawassee fought other Immortals it’s because she chose to do so, feeling the need to fight and to protect her homeland from European Immortals. She led the Cherokees in battle on two occasions, during the Tuscaroa Wars and during the English-Cherokee war, a rebel fighter and leader who never let any man put her down (mortal or otherwise).
                                          When she plays the Game it is because she chooses to do so, same thing when she marries or when she chooses to raise of crop of children, which she has done in four separate occasions. She is now temporarily retired from the Game but keeps her sword sharp : the Gathering isn’t far and the last two decades have killed a lot of Immortals. Can Hiawassee be among the contestants of the final Gathering ?

                                          Lydia Melchior
                                          Inconclusive fight against Allegra Chamber,1940

                                          Lydia Melchior, aka Lydia Stahl, was born in Russia in 1885. She married a Russian nobleman who later disvorced her. Lydia travelled to France and adopted a son who died in 1927, six years after she herself reached her Immortality and was mentored by an Immortal named Melchior of Babylon. The year she died she had joined the Soviet Intelligence agency and was a silent partner to the Immortals of Mother Russia for whom she copied American military documents in the guise of a professional photographer.
                                          From 1931 to 1940 she worked in London, England, where she was confronted by the Secret Immortals Services and nearly lost her head against Allegra Chambers. Before Allegra could sanction her, she jumped in the Thames and disappeared from Watchers scope before re-appearing in Macau, then Bombay where she lived as a socialite and adventuress, meeting Immortals Sunda Kastagir, Sanjiv Gupta, Yung Dol Kim. She did get around. In the 1950's she was war nurse in Korea and in Vietnam durign the 1970's.
                                          Those days she lives retired from adventuring, but who knows what she is up to behind that facade of calm in her suburban house ?


                                          Lady Orlando

                                          Thomas the Rhymer, aka Terence Coventry, wasn’t too good at writing poetry, he was better at writing prose and mentoring gender-challenged Immortals like Lady Orlando. Orlando must have had a very strong will live to survive psychically in the body of an Immortal woman, likely a seasoned one. We never could find her identity, she remaisn a “Jane Doe”, but what matters is the combination of those two Immortals, making of Orlando a very unique character. If he can survive this kind of experiment onc,e can he survive the Gathering and be the winner ? No matter who kills him/her, he may end up becoming the One, even in a different shape.

                                          In his unpredictable fashion, Grant moved out of the Pacific Northwest where he could have challenged and killed Dorothy DeShields or Richie Ryan and moved to Guatemala where he fought and killed Immortal Livio Broccolino two days ago. Ever since he killed Silk Fever, this has been a difficult Immortal to follow, one who cannot seem to malke up his mind on who is he going to challenge. Unless he felt he didn’t need to attention from the several powerful players of the Game located in the Pacific Northwest … there is word on the grapevine that Ryan, DeShields and Lady Orlando joined forces with Henry of Kent to catch the merc before he killed another Immortal.

                                          The female is the deadliest of the species in the animal kingdom, and what rings true for black widows, praying mantises, lionnesses and historical figures like Bodiccaea or Margareth Thatcher also rings true for Immortal women like Touktar of the Tatars, a savage woman raised by Crimean Tatars in the 9th century who survived encounters with the Immortals of Mother Russia, the Kurgan, Kane and other assorted players of the Game before she finally tired of the Game and of warfare after witnessing the pointless butchery of two word wars, and settled in Sevastopol, in a quiet place, as a model presenting the innocent face of a 20 years old calm girl.
                                          The praying mantis looks like a calm breed of insect but she like decapitating and eating its male partner after mating periods. I pity any Immortal man who gets in Toutkar’s way.

                                          his encounter with the Holy Man of Paris

                                          The people of Bolghar expected a miracle when word came that the Mongols would invade, pillage and rape their homeland. They sent their protector to the Mongols, hoping the miracle of the Holy Man of Paris would repeat itself. Unfortunately the Kurgan was more cruel than Darius, a heathen and savage who didn’t care that Dessislava was of the Christian faith. It was the first time in the Watchers Chronicles that the Kurgan was quoted as saying how Jesus Christ’s death on the cross would prove his undoing. Jesus Christ and Dessislava had this one thing in common : though of different kind of immortalities, thery shared the same love for mankind, the same hope to redeem the darkness in man’s heart, the same belief in man’s goodness and the same sense of self-sacrifice.
                                          The Kurgan raped Dessislava, then he took her head before the Mongols, who watched in awe how their Russian ally could master thunder and lightnings. Rape wasn’t even sexual : it was a conquest of her body, though not of her eternal soul sent to join her God in heaven.

She was a one-thousand years old past student of May-Ling Shen, missing since the 15th century, and only sought to live in peace before Kharma Fayzal took her out of the Game. Thus, “Sona Basnyat” has to be removed from our lists of Immortals.

                                          • Re: Deoneces of Sparta. Well, as someone who has studied ancient Greek and Roman history, i can tell you that Deoneces and Kyra would almost certainly have bi-sexual tendencies. Spartan hoplites were encouraged to bond with their fellow warriors in a male-only environment that encouraged physical and emotional relationships that were supposed to be beneficial on the battlefield to the survival of the Spartan soldiers, loyalty to a lover is stronger than to a mere fellow soldier. Spartan women were similar as they were also encouraged to bond with other women while the men were away fighting. In fact, Spartan women had such a reputation for fitness and beauty that men from all over Greece hoped to one day catch a glimpse. If you think women today are under pressure to look a certain way, imagine Spartan women who had to live up to the reputation of Helen of Sparta, the face that launched a thousand ships. In fact, the other women of Greece envied their Spartan sisters because of their relative freedom in relation to themselves and the fact that the Spartan women were also trained in sports and combat.

                                            In the meantime, the Hellfire Club saga continues:

                                            After over a century in exile on the Isle of Iona, Elfrida of York re-emerged in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1168 now calling herself Evangeline Black. She set about taking the pulse of the city's underworld, moving among the various thieves, thugs, prostitutes, black marketeers and knaves, making her presence felt, she soon found herself crossing paths with Aeronwen of Caerwent, an Immortal who owned the largest brothel in the city and used it to exert influence over those in power who frequented its rooms. Elfrida made acquiring the brothel a priority as a means to put herself in a position of influence so she could rebuild the reputation she once had.

                                            Aeronwen did not take too kindly to Elfrida's overtures and Elfrida had never been too trusting of other female Immortals. A pity then for Aeronwen. She put up a good fight but had never been among the best swordswomen in the Immortal world. Elfrida was rusty but had too much nous for the younger woman. With one stroke of her sword, the now Evangeline Black gained a foothold in the city that what would become the Hellfire Club would never really relinquish.

                                            • Have you noticed my recent workload, Apollo ? Good points on Kyra and Deoneces, it would be interesting to develop their past romances.
                                              Cheers !

                                              • Yeah, sorry about that, i know i'm stretching it a bit. The suggestion of a teacher would be fine, and i'll do the rest.

                                                Re: Deoneces and Kyra. Well, Deoneces would still class himself as a heterosexual male with fluid tendencies since Spartan warriors restricted their male lovers to their fellow warriors, those they'd known since they were young. Spartan women would, i think, be far more fluid in their lovers and i would think Kyra would have had many lovers, both male and female and, like Frankie Drummond, would not restrict her physical relationships to lovers but also to whoever she fancied for a quick "role in the hay" as it were...

                                                Cheers

                                                  Since the dawn of time soldiers have been using rape as a war tool, to break and destroy the spirits of entire populations and there also has been Immortals to use rape inn the Game as a tool, to break a potential ennemy, as did the Kurgan with the mortal wife of Connor MacLeod. Diaexis assulted Melania of Traxiane in 506 and raped her, before giving her a temporary death. He made a mistake for the rape didn’t break Melana : she had suffered worse in six centuries years of Immortality and while this was a traumatic experience, she didn’t let her shame and fear take the best of her. She hunted Diaexis until she finally confronted him in the middle of the Battle of Dara, and defeated him in combat, before revealing she had been a woman all along, shaming him before his men. And finally she took his head, frightening the Byzantines and the Sassanids who saw how a woman could master thunder and lightnings.

                                                  taught her of her Immortal heirloom

                                                  Bronze Age Chronicles tell of of Aganesthos of Tiryns married and mentored a pre-immortal woman in the 9th century and that woman became Cordelia, Queen of the Britons. Cordelia is known as an historical/legendary figure who fought for her throne and disappeared by the end of the 9th century, never to be seen again. Aganesthos himself confirmed her death which occurred at an unspecified date before the birth of Christ, research is in motion ot find her whereabouts at the time of her death and – possibly – to put a naem on the Immortal who killed her. It may as well have been Kronos if he was looking for Aganesthos whom he killed in Rome circa 165-169, durign the Plague of Antonin.

                                                  Found and mentored by Jamal Laboduni

                                                  Xavier St .Cloud took part in the Char Bouba War as a mercenary warrior on the side of the Beni Hassan Tribe and couldn’t resist the challenge to face a warrior woman like Fayzza Ikmat Biba, in spite of warnings about her being a protégé of the infamous Jamal Labdouni, a powerful and influencal Immortal who do not take kindly on those killing his disciples. But the nature of the Game is as such that Immortals fight each others to the death and Xavier was very good at hunting those of his kind, no matter who protect them.
                                                  In 1653 when he killed Hamza el Kahir, Xavier gained an ennemy with Duncan MacLeod of Scotland. When he took out Faiza Ikmat Biba he gained an even worse ennemy with Jamal Labdouni, leader of the Eternal Swords of Allah.

                                                  Salafistes are naturally an intolerant and violent group and Sid Ahmed Taleb is too easily viwed as the consummate bad guy by Maghrebi Watchers : former disciple of Xavier St Cloud, headhunter, terrorist leader, past associate of the Eternal Swords of Allah whose terrorist actions spread terror in countries of the Maghreb and in Europe from 1975 to 1990 and caused the unnecessary deaths of ten Immortals and hundreds of mortals caught i nthe crossfire.
                                                  This is forgetting we have an ardent patriot here, with the love of his homeland at heart and this love got turned inside out by the teachings of Jamal Laboudini, changing a noble player of the Game and freedom fighter into a remorseless killer, to random acts of violence are justified by his country's need to frre itself from the shackles of tyranny. He has been fighting the Ottomans, the French, all manners of Europeans Immortals coming after him and when he allied himself with the Swords of Allah, he lost his soul to dreams of freedom and hegemony of Islam. The man who could have been navigatign in the grey area of the Game is now a mad dog in need to be put down, and the sooner the better.

                                                  Colonel Melike has been identified as a former disciple of Marcus Octavius and one of his most zaelus servants, coming after the Immortals Octavius commanded him to kill on his behalf. I suppose Octavius didn’t like to soil his hands, unless he really didn’t need the Quickenings. Melike’s last quarry was Ophelia Saytumah and since then he mysteriously disappeared. Ether he is still active somewhere being Octavius’ Immortal hitman or he was dispatched by James Horton’s rogue squad durign ther Hunters’ 1990’s “clearing” of the Immortals community.

                                                  The Immortal Lucimar Botelho has recently been identified as Tabata Pedrosa, a negro slave living in Brazil in the 18th century once mentored by Alexandra Racine and who went missing in 1819 after a confrontation agaisnt Isadora Wynther, herself part of a group of 1400 Swiss migrants who serttled in Brazil in the 19th century. The confrontation took place because of the agression of Tabata seemingly wary of the Game and of other Immortal; Isadora defeated Tabita but chose to spare her head, not wanting her arrival in Brazil tainted by her killing another Immortal woman, whom she sensed as a disturbed soul.
                                                  Lucimar re-appear in 1965, in Rio de Janeiro, the first negro athlete to compete in track and field sports, she met Christianne Krause an Kyra of Sparta, also competing with whom she competed in calmer, more serene circumstance. What could happen to Lucimar/Tabata to give her such a positive outlook on the Game we do not know.

                                                  to prevent her First Death

                                                  Irene Da Cunha-Lisboa is free to live as she pleases and to enjoy her Immortality, her eternal your but she isn’t free from the deprecating ghost of her abusive mother; though killed by Antonius Kalas in 1955, Irene cannot forgive the memory of the woman who tormented her for nearly one hundred years and bit at her soul bit by bit. Irene is a talented singer and a star of her own, but who can truly knows her torment ? “To know me is to feel my pain”, she once sung and she sang her pain beautifully. As she ever does. I may be harsh there, but she is complacent : her mother’s dead, she has eternal youth, so she should just enjoy her life to the fullest. That’s the trouble with Immortals who carry long-term grudges and who can never forget : they create their own private hell instead of turning their world into their own heaven.

                                                  • Yeah, my friend. I read everyone. Sorry if i got the wrong end of the stick. Normally i comment on your chronicles but at the time i had this new chronicle in my head which i had to get down and i wanted to reply to the points you made about Deoneces and Kyra. I appreciate all of your postings and i read every one which are always great. I'm not as prolific as you are as i'm in the midst of caring for my mum who has dementia and my dad, who is also not in the best of health. Sort of a full-time job at the moment. Reading your postings cheers me up and i look forward to them all. I post when i can and i'm still working on more Hellfire Club postings and i'm also delving into a few kills for Roman Alvarez who i feel I've neglected.

                                                    BTW Thanks for the work you did on Aeronwen, i appreciate it very much.
