    First recorded sighting : 1192. Forests of Iceland
    Found and mentored by Kirsten, investigating
    tales of a murdered child coming back as a ghost,
    Mentored her before handing her to Andre Korda

    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..

    Prometheus

    Status
    Most recent base of operations : Anatolia
    Occupation : Mathematician, astronomer
    Prior occupations : Scholar, tried to bring
    knowledge to mortals
    Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
    Date : 1800 BC, killed by Bellerophon in jealous
    rage over Methos’ affections for him
    Place : Anatolia
    Victor : Bellerophon
    Watcher : Research, Ancient Immortals

    Background
    Original cultural affiliation : Minoan
    Born : Minoan civilisation, unknown date
    First death : Chained to a mountain, died from
    exposure and/or from being attacked by vultures
    First teacher : Methos
    Known associates : None
    Known past associates : Methos, Bellerophon
    Known ennemies : Kronos
    First recorded sighting : 11th Century BC
    Mentioned in conversation between Aganesthos
    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.

    The Constantinople massacre of 1821 was orchestrated by the authorities of the Ottoman Empire against the Greek community of Constantinople (modern Istanbul) in retaliation for the outbreak of the Greek War of Independence (1821–1830), with the Swords of Allah pulling strings behing the scene. Melik Tanju took the opportunity of an easy kill when he hunted and killed Immortal woman
    Sabahat of the Khazars, at this time married to a local Greek swordsmith.

    First teacher : Berenice of Jerusalem
    Known past associates : Berenice of Jerusalem
    First recorded sighting : 1270. Principality of
    Galilee. Foudn and mentorerd by Berenice

    In 1517 Jerusalem fell to the invading Ottoman Turks, among whom Melike Tanju of the Swords of Allah. Talayeh of Galilee’s Watcher was found raped and butched, while Talayeh herself had been decapitated, clues pointing to an Immortal responible. 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.

    First recorded sighting : 799. Abbasid Caliphate
    Offered as gift by Harun al-Rashid to Leofric, at this
    time Christian missionary

    Mahnaz of Bilad al-Sham was one of the oldest ennemies of the Swords of Allah and was thought long dead, killed by Jamal Labdouni or by one of his cohorts. 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.

    Date : 334 BC Conquest of Anatolia by Alexander
    the Great, lover of Deoneces of Sparta
    Place : Macedonia
    Victor : N.A
    Watcher : Research, Ancient Immortals

    Background
    Original cultural affiliation : Thracian
    Born : 500 BC Thrace
    First death : 480 BC; Mercenary in armies of King
    Xerxes I of Persia fighting the Greeks
    First teacher : Cleophon of Athens
    Known past associates : Cleophon of Athens,
    Deoneces of Sparta
    Known ennemies : 334 BC. Thracian mercenary
    acompanying Alexander the Great when he
    crossed the Hellespont during invasion of Persia

    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

      So, it's back to the Hellfire Club/SIS Chronicles saga:

      If you could be so kind as to fill in the blanks for me, my friend,

      Mary of Lincoln

      Known aliases: Mary of Torksey, Margaret of
      Chester

      Most recent base of operations: Melvaig, village on
      west coast of Scotland
      Occupation: Basket weaver, married to local
      fisherman
      Prior occupations: servant, peasant
      Roster of Immortals Status: Deceased
      Date: 1168
      Place: Melvaig
      Victor: Aldrich Monk
      Watcher: David Nisbet

      Background
      Original cultural affiliation: Anglo-Saxon
      Born: 912, Lincoln, The Five Boroughs, Danish
      Mercia
      First death: 941; raped and murdered by Vikings
      during re-capture of Lincoln from the English by
      King Olaf of York
      First teacher: ?

      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!

      David Nisbet, 1168

        Background
        Original cultural affiliation : Colonial Dominican
        Born : 1493, Granada, Spain
        First death : Killed by flying debris during
        hurricane of 1502 which destroyed Santo
        Domingo, Dominican Rpeublic
        First teacher : Coloma of Catalonia
        Known past associates : Brother Paul, Marie
        Guillard, Arturo Barba
        First recorded sighting : 1660. St.Paul Monastery,
        Switzerland. Disguised as travelling monk, spent
        one night in Paul’s abbaye, in prayers for the
        Immortals Kalas murdered

        Felicidad Delacruz was once mentored by an Immortal woman named Coloma of Catalonia who lived head in clouds, was naïve about Immortals and didn’t believe in the Game, at least this is the story she told Brother Paul in 1660. Between 1520 and 1660 she grew up a little , was mentored by a wiser Immortal and was without illusions about the nature of the Game after having escaped the blades of Martin Hyde in Portugal who hoped she would take him to her teacher and of Desdemona in 1520 whom she mistook for a friend before she met Juan Sanchez Villalobos Ramirez in 1536.
        Ramirez taught her about the Game and about how to live in relative peace when you are an Immortal and a woman.

        She was lucky she could outlive the 16th century as she told Paul and when Paul told her the sad truth about his friend Kalas’ betrayal, she realised that no one is safe, not even on Holy Grounds. She could have grown bitter but she didn’t : she stayed on Holy Grounds for most of her life, moving from one convent to another, always within the Catholic Church, met a lot of Immortals, some she befriended, others she stayed away from.
        Those days she runs an elementary school and teaches Venezuelan girls about self-respect and about beign assertive so that they can survive in the world of men. This is one tough nun, to be sure.

        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.

        Encounter with Jacob Van Houten during landing
        party, aware of the existence of the Game

        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!

        Brother in arms and student of Carlos Montoya,
        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.

        Background
        Original cultural affiliation : Native Latin American
        Oriente Indians,converted to Catholiscism
        Born : 16th century, region of Puruhas, Ecuador
        First death : Resisting invasion of Ecuador by the
        Incas, on the wrong end of an Inca spear
        First teacher : Carmen Morales
        Known past associates : Carmen Morales
        First recorded sighting : 16th century Chronicles,
        Ecuador. Idendified by Carmen Morales as an
        unkillable Ecuadorian Indian warrior, c. 1570 at
        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.

        First recorded sighting : 1669. Maracaibo,

        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.

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.

        by Maritsa Bocanegra, her neveraging nanny and « good fairy »

        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.

          Yogesh Sani

          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.

          Sameh Hadad

          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.

Her husband as a good job at Sorbonne University and the Game is played as well in Los Angele, not to mention the lack of anonimity. Sunda Kastagir taught her to seize the moment and to use every opportunities available to grow and change and she did in four hundred years. Gabriel and Fatimatou are discussing the offer but they aren’t too sure : it may be a trap from one of their old ennemies, for what they know.

          Hoel Vaucelle

          There is a theory that Hoel Vaucelle was mentored by Druidess Asteria of Gaul in the 9th century with him being part of the Celtic Revival Movement, but we have no conclusive proof of that. In the seventy-eight years he has been followed, Hoel proved a discreet Immortal, seldom mixing with those of his kind, avoiding challenges and we don’t think he ever took a student. His only ennemy was Ernst Daimler but he managed to avoid fighting him while insuring the survval of afamily of six French Jews. He still see them each Christmas, they are aware of his Immortality and never questioned the miracle of his immortality. As a matter of fact, they belive he is the fabled Wandering Jew. To their questions he cryptically answers that he did wander the earth for centuries but he doesn’t need to be a Jew to feel welcome among them.

          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.

          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.

          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.

          First recorded sighting : 9th century Russia
          Found and mentored by Darius, deeply inspired by
          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.

          Nanlha of Bumthand and Sona Basnyat have been identified as one and the same, Sona did appear in 1972 in Nepal and was a temporary guest of Immortal Madhav Yadhav but not as his disciple and wasn’t born in 1952 as previously recorded. 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:

            First teacher: ?

            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.

              • 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...

                  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.

                  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.

                  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.

                  jealous of her daughter’s singing talent

                  First recorded sighting : 1860. Rio de Janeiro,
                  Brazil. After singing performance, found and
                  mentored by Walter Graham who arrived too late
                  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.

                    Cheers

                        If you could, could you now post the active and inactive chronicles of the Immortals of the United Kingdom and Ireland.

                          How many rapists and pedophiles are there in our chronicles ? One dozen ? Two ? Miguel de Boabventura was another one and a defroqued priest to boot, an impostor posing as a man of peace and servant of Jesus Christ. Maria Rosa saw beyond the charming demeanor and believed the tale fo Lisa who told her mama and tio about Padre Miguel molestiong her, hurting her private parts. Maria Rosacame after Miguel who smiled and told her about the amorous relationship he developped with little girls over the years. The disgusted and revolted Maria didn’t let him finish. She drew her sword and after a quick fight promptly executed the pedophile. After she castrated him for good measure. Then she came back to Lisa’s home and consoled her as much as she could, explaining her that she should never let a man hurt her but also that men would someday gave her all the love and pleasure she deserved. Tearful Lisa listened and learnt her lesson : whatever happened to her, it wasn’t a normal relationship with men. Maria Rosa was truly a woman in advance with her times, a child psychologist in the 1910’s ! Maybe she took lessons from Sean Burns ?

                          Ever since cops broke his spine in 1984, two years before he reached Immortality and could have been healed from his injuries, Salomon Nyobé has been stuck in a wheelchair but he never let that wheelchair be his prison, fighting for the rights of civilians in Cameroon and recently trying to curb endemic child abuse, planting viruses in computers used by pedophiles, and fighting the child prostitution ring led by Immortal Barthelemy Kiesso who didn’t take kindly to the meddlesome Immortal. One such viruses destroyed years worth of data on Kiesso’s computer database and the police was alerted to Kiesso’s business by a floppy drive sent anonimously. Salomon always had a gift with computers, less with the sword since he couldn’t use one. Ibrahim Endele taught him to always stay on Holy Grounds since this is where no one could touch him.
                          Kiesso’s mercs kidnapped him and brought him bound and gagged to their master who dealt with his ennemy as he saw fit. Too late, though, as dozens of children were freed by childcare services with Kiesso leading his own battle for freedom in court with the best atorneys money can buy.

                          In 1593, Sami Nazari, tipped local Ottoman authorities on activities of terrorist underground led by Jamal Labdouni, tired of the constant massacres caused by the ESA and tired of beign their unwilling acomplice. Labdouni never takes betrayal kindly and while Nazaris is listed on the rost of Missing Immortals, his fate in Tripoli doesn't look good. Being a smart fellow, there is a possibility that he managed to evade the Swords of Allah in 1593 but for how long ? Did he make it to London, after all ? He may not even have reached the shores of Italy where the merchant ship was supposed to take him.
                          The last report of Sami's Watcher states that he was located in Tripoli's portuary zone, walking fast and nervously but Sami lost him in the crowd and he was incapable of finding him.

                          Suriash did hunt me for centuries after I killed her husband in fair fight. She pretended I cheated and that had I not cheated, I would be pushing daisies instead of her beloved. I know I won fair and square and won’t abide by any of the guilt Suriash wanted me to feel in those days. The Game is the Game and it has been so for thousand of years. I should know since we started it, my brothers and I. Or did we ? I can’t seem to remember how it all started. Anyway, I killed Parthos of Aram’s wife I remember exactly when and where. Celtic Gaul, during Julius Caesar's Gallic Wars when I mentored that idiot Vorlix of Gergovia, another one among my “thousand regrets”. Seems to me Suriash posed as a celtic princess and she came after me screaming fo revenge.
                          I was known as Caratarix then, and later called “the Son of Tutatis, God of thunder and lightings” when I took her crazy head. Funny, I even thought she was Cassandra coming after my like the Furies of ancient myth. I thought I was rid of the pest then, imagine my surprise when she re-appeared in my life in 1996 !

                          Travelling with Seraphina

                          Seraphina taught what she could to the Immortal boy she mentored in the Eighth century but where Amanda the thief taught trickery and deceit to Kenneth the Saxon and forgetting his existence for the following eight hundred years, Seraphina the Roman gladiatrix taught Smerdis to use speed and agility to evade aggressive Immortals and to never try eating a meal he couldn’t chew, i.e she didn’t turn him into an aggressive player of the Game. Seraphina and Smerdis stayed together for two decades before the boy felt he had grown enough and wanted to strike on his own. For three hundred years he avoided the Game, ran from Immortals he felt could hurt him and proved to be very good at hiding in plain sight; in the mortal world he hired himself as squire to knights or armies officers who would need him and he had a knack at making himself useful : imagine, a boy with the life-experience of a three hundred years old man ! Smerdis disappeared from our chronicles in 1017, during the invasion of Khwarezm by Sultan Mamhud of the Ghaznavid, Jamal Labdouni and Taher Ibn Hamed Al Jaber founders of the Swords of Allah were present and while we cannot prove for certain Smerdis was killed by Labdouni or by Al Jaber, he would have been but an appetizer to the two conquering Muslims.

                            The legend of the Knights of Christendom truly commences by 650 AD, when shadowy immortal Metopholus gathered seven immortal heroes from all parts of Western Europe as help to hunt the legendary Xathia of Melitus at this time a thrall of the dreaded Dark Quickening. Xanthia received it from an old and evil immortal in India and for one century, roared and ramapaged across two continents, with Methos hot on her trails, trying to prevent her from causing more deaths. She put thousands of mortals to the sword, killed at least six immortals we know of and damaged her reputation to the extant her former disciples went in hiding, dreading the days she would come after them.
                            Finally, Xanthia was captured by the Knights of Christendom, originally six Christian martyrs mentored by the ancient Dyonisios who combined their strenghts against the forces of darkness. They fought many evil immortals, but it was the first time they had to face one of the most benevolents of their kind, the legendary Rebecca,keeper of the Stone of Methuselah and former lover of King Agamemnon.
                            It is Methos who guided his allies to a holy spring where Xanthia was forced to confront her inner demons, her good side eventually prevailing. The seven holy knights were the one she had to thank and truly, this was their most acomplished feat : bringing Xanthia back from the darkness ot the light.

                            Encounter with Karmanshar and Tomyris

                            Further research has been made on the legendary "Holy Man of Paris" in the wake of Darius' tragic death at the hands of the accursed James Horton. His first appearance can be traced back to the height of the Aegean civilisation according to conversations reported by the Watchers of Xanthia of Miletus, Karmanshar & Tomyris, Cassandra and from earlier Methos chronicles, sparse as they may be. What follows are fragments of Lycos' story from around 3,500 BC to his end at the hands of General Darius. While Lycos'death was tragic, his greatest acomplishment was to give the world one of the most benevolent immortals who ever existed.
                            With his death, Methos became the oldest living immortal.

                            Emrys, mythical pagan priest who lived in before Methos was born, around 3500 BC and already an ancient immortal. Mentioned in a conversation between Methos and Xanthia of Miletus circa 850 AD, said to have been killed by General Darius in Lutetia, 410. Emrys is possibly one of the ancient Druids who built Stonehenge.

                            Genonn Gruadsolus : a druid who lived in Ulster, Ireland, around 900 BC. Practiced black magic until getting burnt to a stake by the Inquisition. Did he become as mad as John Garrick from the agony he suffered ?

                            Lycurgus of Sparta, semi-mythical Spartan lawgiver said to have lived in the 7th century BC. Lycurgus was traditionally believed to have patterned his laws after those of Crete or to have received them from the oracle at Delphi (possibly Cassandra). He then established a new social order and introduced a constitution that transformed Sparta into a military state. Obtaining from the Spartans an oath not to alter his laws until he returned, Lycurgus went into voluntary exile and never came back.

                            Vohuman (559 BC-400 BC) : Aechemenian in Iran until the invasion by Alexander the Great. He was living as a Zoroastrian priest. Befriended Cleophon of Athens and his disciple, Deoneces of Sparta.

                            Lycurgus of Athens (circa 396-c. 325 BC), Athenian financier, statesman, and orator. He was a pupil of Plato and of the orator Isocrates of Athens. Lycurgus is most famous for his administration of Athenian finances from 338 to 326 BC, when he greatly increased the wealth of the state. He also erected many new buildings and remodeled a number of old ones, among them the theater of Dionysus, the Greek god of wine and vegetation. In politics Lycurgus strongly supported the policy of opposition to Philip II, king of Macedonia, advocated by the Athenian orator Demosthenes. Met and befriended immortals Karmanshar and Queen Tomyris.

                            Dionysius the Areopagite (1st century-3rd Century AD), member of the Areopagus in Athens and convert to Christianity through the preaching of Saint Paul. He is reputed to have been the first bishop of Athens and to have been martyred there in the reign of Domitian, emperor of Rome. At this time, he also was one of the Seven Sleepers of Ephesus in Turkey (see Chronicle : the Seven Sleepers of Ephesus).

                            Udpate 22.10.2012 : As recently told by Malcus of Ephesus during his stay in London in the middle of the Immortals War, Dyonisus mentored all six of the other Sleepers of Ephesus who turn out to be six actual brothers from Ephesus. How six pre-immortal boys turned out in Ephesus at the beginning of the 3rd century is as unlikely as six pre-immortals born in Vinland during the 10th century; however, the Six of Vinland do exist and their origin story was confiormed by Kanwulf and by Bjorn Gustavson themselves.
                            Hence, the need to update the Sleepers’ chronicles accordingly and to work on the first recorded sightings of the men bearing the names of Constantine and Seraphim of Ephesus.

                              Kashta of Nubia

                              The BaKongo Clan was Kashta of Nubia’s family in 14th century Kingdom of Kongo, they understood the Game as the battle of good vs the forces of darkness and weren’t far from the truth for half-naked savages. Not much else is known about them : a witch, a warrior woman, two warriors, a prophetic child comprised their numbers; there was Aminata who was a powerfull sorceress a whose spells would baffle modern science, Chadrak the Immortal prophet who knew where water springs would be found and when danger would strike, Musimbwa and Radahusha who completed each other : Musimbawa was the eyes Radahusha in battle while Radahusha was Musimbawa's shield, Sephora who was Aminata's daughter and was viewed with scorn because she never menstruated and finally her husband, Chief Mbawaze, the only man she took an order from.
                              Kashta taught them very well about warfare, about the Game and they lived for three hundred years before disappearing in 1647 during the Kombi War, facing Portuguese troops and cannons.

                              The Fulani Clan viewed the Game as unholy and seldom played it, or fought Immortals only in legimitate defense. I don’t think Sankara ever took a Quickening in the four hundred years he was observed by Watchers. Some Immortals play the Game and kill Immortals in the name of their chosen God (Safiyah Khan, Damon Case,..) the Fulani Clan avoids confrontations because they believe it is not the will of Allah to see Immortals kill each others in the name of a fabled “Prize”. Sankara wouldn’t even let his cohorts fight aggressive players, he took himself the responsability of defending his clan. He must have been the bravest of men, or rather an obessive control freak who never let his clan members grow up and learn from their mistakes. In the name of Allah he avoided the Game, in the name of Allah the Swords of Allah hunted them down and in likelihood killed them all.

                              • Another great set of chronicles, my friend. I especially enjoyed the story of the Seven Champions of Christendom, all disciples of Dionysus the Aeropagite. Some gripping tales there...

                                  Deoneces finally appears to have found a purpose. The dark, brooding loner has gone and has been replaced by a determined, focused warrior with a new cause and a sense of justice, Spartan style. After spending the first two centuries of his immortal life wracked with guilt over surviving the heroic last stand that saw the end of his life as one of the Spartan elite, he then spent the next couple of centuries taking out his anger on the Persians, who he blamed for everything.
                                  Although nothing has been proven in Watcher records from the period, Deoneces's Watcher at the time suspected his involvement in the suspicious death of Philip of Macedon and the subsequent elevation of Alexander to King, owing to Deoneces's apparent close friendship with Alexander's mother, Olympia. The fact he then followed Alexander on his conquest of Persia as one of the young king's must trusted officers do nothing to allay those suspicions.
                                  Alexander's death saw Deoneces abandon the mediterannean and North Africa altogether and head east, where he spent the next four centuries honing his skills, learning from the great masters, still brooding, and carving out a reputation as one of the most fearsome players of the Game. He took heads from India to the furthest reaches of China and Indonesia.

                                  Deoneces of Sparta is among the most powerful Immortals still walking the Earth and one of the oldest. A fearsome warrior, merciless to his enemies, and protective to those he loves and trusts, Deoneces has become a legendary figure in the Immortal community. Some of the most feared and evil Immortals in history have fallen to his sword; the Kurgan, Kane, Kronos...
                                  And dozens of others have fled rather than fight him, his name and reputation alone instilling fear in those who operate in the murky waters of the Immortal world.

                                  But then Deoneces was born a warrior in a warrior society, his childhood forged in the brutal world of the Agoge, where the Spartan state trained him as a living weapon (Watcher historians are still trying to ascertain whether he was a member of the brutal and shadowy Cripteia, the Spartan secret society that was known for dealing out savage justice to Sparta's helot population).

                                  In 480 BC, the Persian Empire invaded Greece and Sparta joined Athens in its defense. Deoneces was one of the three hundred warriors of King Leonidas' personal bodyguard who fought and died alongside the Thespians at the pass of Thermopylae.

                                  When he came to, the elusive Methos was standing over him. Methos told Deoneces all about immortality and the Game, but the two men did not get along. Deoneces was a warrior who thrived on the thrill of the battle, while Methos counseled caution and "living to grow strong." To Deoneces, Methos was a coward and a poor warrior. If the Spartan had known at the time that Methos was once one of the Four Horsemen, would he have tried to kill him? Two thousand years later, Deoneces discovered the truth, but time had passed and people change. Still, in those early days, Deoneces walked away from Methos in disgust, unwilling to be the student of a man he considered dishonourable.

                                  In 478 BC, Deoneces met Cleophon of Athens in Thebes. Their first encounter was a violent one, the Spartan challenged his Athenian blood enemy to a fight, but he lost and ended on his knees with Cleophon's sword at his throat. But Cleophon spared the new Immortal and the Spartan, beaten by a worthy foe, apprenticed himself to the Athenian, becoming his fiercest and most loyal acolyte.

                                  When Deoneces and Cleophon joined the court of King Philip of Macedon, becoming tutors to his son Alexander, Deoneces met Kyra for the first time. A student of Aegelaus, a friend of Cleophon, she was personal bodyguard to Queen Olympius. There was an instant attraction between the two Spartans. Deoneces, as well as being a warrior, has a healthy appetite for women, especially Immortal women, but Kyra became, and would remain, to this day, something more. They fell into bed together that first night and have been on/off lovers for over two thousand years. They have had mortal lovers, and Immortal lovers, but the bond between the two Spartans is unbreakable.

                                  The two have fought side by side down through the centuries, defending Greece from her enemies and joining Achilles of Troy's crusade against the infamous Menmet-Ra and his Zodiac Brotherhood. To Deoneces and Kyra, war and sex goes hand in hand; they fight and kill on the battlefield and then celebrate their survival in the carnal desires of the flesh.
                                  Over the centuries, a number of renowned female Immortals have become part of the Spartan's "harem," women who Deoneces considers to be under his protection, and who often share his bed: Seraphina of Rome and her teacher, Katherine of Samothrace, and Frances Drummond.
                                  Deoneces' appetite for women is offset by his fearsome reputation for hunting and killing the psychopaths of the Immortal community, his skill with a sword is almost unmatched. He is decisive when dealing out justice and protecting those who cannot protect themselves, merciless to those who prey on the weak. His reputation as the dark angel of the Immortal community is well deserved.

                                  From the Chronicle of Deoneces of Sparta
                                  Derek Thurston, 2010

                                  AD 210 - 218: Deoneces of Sparta, as Damasos of Colchis, serves as a Greek officer in the Roman army; a tribune in the auxillia, the Cohortes Equitatae, recruited from the peregrini (non-citizens) of Rome, on the Gallic borders of the empire.

                                  AD 219: Deoneces of Sparta owns a villa in the coastal town of Ostia, which he shares with his long-time on again/off again lover, Kyra. Katherine of Samothrace, re-united with her student, Seraphina, joins them. The three Immortal women, sharing the home of the Spartan, as well as his bed, cause a stir among the patrician classes of the city by openly boasting of their nocturnal exploits, at the city baths. The quartet travel often to Rome, where Deoneces also has a home, to conduct business, and host parties that scandalise the city as the three wonen shamelessly flaunt their relationship with the Spartan.

                                  AD 222: Roman emperor Heliogabalus is murdered by the Praetorian guard, among them Immortal Lucius Oranius Capito, and is succeeded by his 14-year-old cousin and adopted son Marcus Aurelius Severus Alexander.

                                  AD 223: Among a group of army veterans seeking revenge for the murder of the previous emperor, Deoneces travels to Rome and confronts Lucius Oranius Capito, tribune of the Praetorian guard. Deoneces fights and defeats Capito, but other Praetorians attack Deoneces, allowing Capito to escape and flee Rome.

                                  AD 225: Deoneces, Kyra, Katherine and Seraphina host a legendary party at their villa in Ostia that lasts for 24 days and nights. Much of what went on is the stuff of rumour and speculation, but such important figures as the consuls Fucius and Domitius, and Sallustia Oribias, wife of the emperor Alexander Severus, are said to have attended.

                                  AD 227: Deoneces mentors Immortal Quilo of Hispalis, a slave who he buys from his master and then frees. Quilo spends the next two years with the four Immortals in Ostia, learning all he can from all of them.

                                  AD 229: The five Immortals of Ostia go their separate ways after ten years together. Katherine and Seraphina leave Italy altogether, Quilio sets off to explore Western Europe, while Deoneces and Kyra relocate to Greece, before Kyra then parts ways with her lover six months later.

                                  The five Immortals will continue to cross paths with each other for the next 1800 years. Kyra, Katherine and Seraphina continue to share the Spartan's bed whenever each of them is reunited with Deoneces, and Quilo continues to learn from his three mentors until his death.

                                  Apollo1, 2009


                                  In 1814, Deoneces of Sparta and his on/off lover, Kyra of Sparta I, helped to found the Filiki Eteria resistance group with the aim of liberating Greece from Ottoman rule. They planned to launch revolts in the Peloponnese, the Danubian Principalities, and Constantinople. The Ottoman Sultan negotiated with Mehmet Ali of Egypt, who agreed to send his son Ibrahim Pasha to Greece with an army to suppress the revolt in return for territorial gain.
                                  By the end of 1825, most of the Peloponnese was under Egyptian control, and the city of Messalonghi - under siege by the Turks since April 1825, fell in April 1826. Following years of negotiation, the three Great Powers, Russia, Great Britain and France intervened in support of the Greeks, defeating an Egyptian-Turkish fleet at Navarino. A French expeditionary force then helped the Greeks expel the Turks from the Peloponnese and recaptured central Greece by 1828. Greece was finally recognised as an independent nation in May 1832. The long, hard struggle fought by Deoneces and Kyra had seen their ancient homeland free at last.

                                  THE DARK DEONECES CHRONICLE

                                  There is much speculation in Watcher ranks as to how it is that Deoneces of Sparta has never
                                  succumbed to a Dark Quickening as did his line-brother Henry of Kent, the Highlander Duncan MacLeod,
                                  James Coltec and Guy LeStrange, especially when you consider the infamous Immortals who have fallen
                                  to his blade: Kane, The Kurgan, Kronos, Coronus of Persia; any one of them could have corrupted the
                                  mighty Spartan. So, what is the answer? Perhaps the secret lies in a simple truth: only someone who
                                  has conquered the darkness in their own soul could contain the darkness in others.

                                  Deoneces was forced to confront that darkness during two decades in the late 8th century AD,
                                  The Spartan had settled down for the first time in around 1200 years on the island of Sicily with a
                                  mortal woman named Aria, the wife of a former comrade-in-arms who died in battle and who Deoneces
                                  made a promise that he would take care of his family. The Spartan fell in love with Aria and her
                                  three children and, much to the astonishment of his Watcher at the time, became a merchant after so
                                  long as a warrior.

                                  This woman, Aria, was of an astonishing beauty, but more importantly is that she reminded him of
                                  Hyppolita, his first wife in pre-immortality who could never have borne him children at the time of
                                  ancient Sparta. Her three children, one boy and two girls, where amazing little hellions, fierce,
                                  petulant, open-mouthed and showing the promise of being someday either great warriors of great
                                  artists. For they were gifted with painting, music and archery. At such a young age it was a marvel
                                  to behold and Deoneces felt those were truly the reincarnations of people he knew twelve centuries
                                  ago. So akin Deoneces felt to his new family that he swore to himself that he would stood forever
                                  ready to their needs as well as the needs of their descendants.
                                  It was the first time Deoneces oppned his heart in this fashion - with the exeption of his three
                                  sirens - and the decade that followed would be one of the happiest in his long life.
                                  The warrior had become a family man.

                                  But Deoneces’ peace was short-lived: after only ten years, the Spartan was away on the Italian
                                  mainland on business when Immortal Kossos of Illyria, a student of Coronus of Persia, led a band of
                                  raiders in an attack on the village. All the men were put to the sword, the women and girls were
                                  brutally raped and then butchered, even the children were slaughtered.
                                  When Deoneces returned to the island a few days later, the woman and children he loved were dead and
                                  his home was gone. Consumed by grief he sought answers from a nearby village that had also been hit
                                  and where there were survivors and learned of the raiders and the man who led them, who had survived
                                  a sword to the chest; Deoneces saw the handiwork of an acolyte of Coronus, his old enemy, in the
                                  leader of the raiders.

                                  Soon, the Spartan’s grief turned to rage and a burning desire for revenge; he would hunt them all
                                  down, every last one of them, but he would save Kossos for last.
                                  For the next two decades, from 762 to 785, Deoneces followed the trail of Kossos and his
                                  bloodthirsty band. He barely slept, his hair grew long and his face was nearly unrecognisable
                                  beneath a bushy beard, his clothes were unkempt; he resembled a wild man as he moved from town to
                                  town, spending his nights getting drunk and his days tracking his quarry.
                                  He caught two of the raiders at an inn in Burgundy where they had been left behind by Kossos to
                                  sober up. Deoneces flew into a rage and attacked them both. The inn was owned by a fellow Immortal,
                                  Durand, who objected to people being murdered on his premises, but the Spartan ignored Durand’s
                                  protests and brutally slaughtered the men anyway. When Durand tried to eject Deoneces, threatening
                                  to inform the local militia, the Spartan, enraged, beheaded the Burgundian, who didn’t even have
                                  time to arm himself.

                                  And so it was for the next 23 years as Deoneces hunted down the raiders and killed them one by one
                                  all across Eastern Europe and the Mediterranean. Kossos, fearful of the wrath of the Spartan
                                  relentlessly hounding his steps, fled for his life. Meanwhile, any Immortal unlucky enough to cross
                                  the path of Deoneces, innocent or otherwise, was treated with contempt and brutally dispatched for
                                  getting in his way. The Spartan was obsessed with revenge. In all, another four Immortals met their
                                  tragic end at the sword of the wrathful Deoneces.
                                  In time, word reached Kyra of Sparta in Bohemia of the bedraggled, wild-haired warrior slaughtering
                                  raiders and who laughed maniacally during a lightning storm after beheading a man in Bavaria. His
                                  description could only be her on again/off again lover Deoneces. The stories even reached the ears
                                  of Seraphina in Anatolia and Katherine of Samothrace in the Frankish Kingdom. Separately, the three
                                  women set out on the trail of the man they all loved, determined to help a man they knew could only
                                  be in terrible pain.

                                  In 785, they finally all converged on the town of Bremen in Saxony over the course of a week, each
                                  following the bloody trail the Spartan had been unwittingly leaving for them. On the outskirts of
                                  the town, having been re-united the night before at an inn in Bremen, the three women found Doeneces
                                  throttling the last of the raiders to death. They barely recognised their lover, pain and rage
                                  etched on his face, and he warned them not to interfere or get in his way. But all three of his
                                  “sirens” refused to allow him to destroy himself. He drew his sword and attacked the women, who
                                  defended themselves, but would not hurt the Spartan. Using skills Deoneces had taught them all
                                  himself, Kyra, Katherine and Seraphina parried or dodged his wild blows. Eventually, all three women
                                  lowered their swords, fell to their knees, and offered their heads to Deoneces, hoping that their
                                  Quickenings would heal his pain, that their love for him would heal the wound in his soul.
                                  But Deoneces could not kill the three women he cared about the most in the world. He fell to his
                                  knees, screamed at the sky, and then wept. Kyra, Katherine and Seraphina, crying with him, held him
                                  in their arms and comforted the Spartan as the rage and grief drained from him, washed away by the
                                  love of the three Immortal women.
                                  The next day, the quartet checked into the inn in Bremen and spent the next month scandalising the
                                  townsfolk with their noisy sexual exploits and open displays of affection. The dark Deoneces was
                                  gone, the rage was still there below the surface but it was now contained and would always be a part
                                  of him, brought out only in his duels with other Immortals, the reason he is so formidable.

                                  In 1931, Kossos of Illyria, henchman to a notorious Irish mobster, was lured into an alleyway by a
                                  mysterious woman, an Immortal, offering him a quickie outside a nightclub. Instead, Kossos was
                                  challenged and defeated in battle. On his knees, he demanded to know the identity of his attacker.
                                  She told him her name was Kyra and she was righting a wrong, bringing closure to a dark chapter in
                                  the life of a lover. “What’s his name?” he asked her. “Deoneces,” she told him and then took his
                                  head and his Quickening.

                                  Kyra grew up thinking that the reason she’d been abandoned as an infant was because her parents had wanted a boy and left her out on a hillside to die. In ancient Sparta, it happened all the time. She was found by a priestess of Diana and raised in the image of the Huntress. Because of her anger at the parents who she thought abandoned her, she was determined to best the boys her age at sports, in the gymnasium, and in games of war, which she regularly did. It was only after her First Death, a fall in a foot race some said was caused by a jealous male runner, that she learned she’d not been singled out as a baby because she was a woman-no immortal knows who his parents are. But by then, the patterns were so deeply ingrained that she has never gotten over the feeling she always has to prove herself despite her gender.

                                  After the death of Alexander the Great, Kyra went hunting for the man who ordered the death of her beloved friend and commander. Her lover, Deoneces, had already left to chase down the assassin, but Kyra wanted the astermind. It took her a year to track Coronus to a luxury villa in Gaza, Palestine. The fierce warrior woman slew all of his guards and fought the Persian. Coronus was outmatched and close to defeat, his eye already lost to a sword thrust, when the local militia interrupted the fight. While Kyra fought off the soldiers, Coronus escaped by jumping from the balcony into the sea.

                                  In 1814, Deoneces of Sparta and his on/off lover, Kyra of Sparta I, helped to found the Filiki Eteria resistance group with the aim of liberating Greece from Ottoman rule. They planned to launch revolts in the Peloponnese, the Danubian
                                  Principalities, and Constantinople. The Ottoman Sultan negotiated with Mehmet Ali of Egypt, who agreed to send his
                                  son Ibrahim Pasha to Greece with an army to suppress the revolt in return for territorial gain.
                                  By the end of 1825, most of the Peloponnese was under Egyptian control, and the city of Messalonghi - under siege by the Turks since April 1825, fell in April 1826. Following years of negotiation, the three Great Powers, Russia, Great Britain and France intervened in support of the Greeks, defeating an Egyptian-Turkish fleet at Navarino. A French expeditionary force then helped the Greeks expel the Turks from the Peloponnese and recaptured central Greece by 1828. Greece was finally recognised as an independent nation in May 1832. The long, hard struggle fought by Deoneces and Kyra had seen their ancient homeland free at last.

                                  Student of Bondeville, recruited into the SIS

                                  When Helen Bondeville debuked the pedophile network operating in England, she didn’t expect it to be ran by an immortal pedophile cowering in the midlle of London. But informations from the Secret Immortals Services pinned the blame of several missing children on Ronnie Rodgers, an immortal who had been behind the infamous kidnapping of young Gavin Cummings in 1995. Rodgers raised the child on his own, turned him into his own sex slave until he one day murdered him, hoping to keep him by his side, forever.
                                  The incensed Helen killed Ronnie, had most of his clients arrested and then took on herself to take Gavin with her, introducing him to Doctor Sean Burns for extensive sessions of therapy before adopting him as his ward, since there was no way he could be returned to his family.

                                  From the Chronicle of the SIS

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

                                  18 August 1559: Pope John Paul IV dies aged 83 of "natural causes." The Watchers at the time identified Eadwulf and Raimond d'Amboise at large in Rome at the time. Eadwulf once studied with herbalists in the Middle Ages and is known to be an expert in several lethal toxins which leave no trace. We have long suspected the Society arranged the Pope's demise as revenge for his involvement in several plots to remove or kill Elizabeth I.

                                  Three hundred years later, in 1848 after the Swiss Guards temporarily disbanded when Pope Pius IX fled to Gaetia, Raymond d'Amboise and Eadwulf were kidnapped and tortured by an ancient Swiss Immortal who was bodyguard of the Pope and wanted revenge for what he considered to be an evil deed from the SIS. Keeping them hostages, he called for the entire SIS to surrender to him, or Eadwulf and Raymond who surely die. When they didn't respond he organized separate attacks on Richeard of Mercia, Allegra Chambers, Helen Bondeville with mercenaries armed with muskets and finally got his wish when he was confronted by Richeard in person while Allegra and Helen freed their friends. The ancient swiss guard was taken out by Richeard of Mercia himself and thus a lesson was leant : to always stay on their guard where past deeds were concerned.The past can always come back to haunt you.

While this is a tough woman she reached her breaking point and needs her rest. Her best therapy so far is her involvement with the online Chinese community with which she runs non-profit social events in Birmingham’s Chinatown, thopugh this is not enough to alleviate her burgeoning depression.

                                  As director of Mercia Construction, Richeard of Mercia suffered an inquiry on the burning of Grefell Tower in London, havign been the architect of the tenement building. However, no charges could be pressed against him. Havign been recently followed by one of his kind in recent weeks, Richeard suspected foul play from an Immortal and recruited his SIS cohorts to help him find out wether or not an Immortal could be responsible for this heinous act. The only likely suspect was Patrick Lynch, an Irish immortal and pyromaniac living in New-York, but he had moved out of the city and was nowhere to be found. Eventually, he was located in Greater Lndon, and in his appartment was found enough paraphernalia and explosives to set half of West London ablaze. Lynch was quickly found, interrogated and was forced to write a full confession which was sent to the police before his body was found in the Thames, seemingly decapitated by a boat’s propellers.

                                  The Hellfire Club, an organisation of rich Immortals who have been a thorn in the SIS'side since the 17th century and are like a wet bar of soap : impossible to hold for long. Richeard and his group could never catch them in time and put a permanent end to their activites. Not exactly major villains, but still severe nuisances. Irritatign and frustrating, hedonistic, scheming, anti-patriotic, everything the SIS isn't! They even made friends with the SIS ennemies such as the Spanish Cabal, the Knights of Charlemagne and the Court of Beauties. They dress up in Victorian-era clothing, are involved in racketeering, counter-inelligence, wanton acts of terrorism and also extortion. They don't mind murder too. They tend to target and kill, ridicule, harass important figures of the Londonian society. Everything that can annoy, piss off or endanger the SIS they do it!

                                  Lassiter better watch out. Most Immortals would want to keep a low profile, but apparently Howard didn't get the memo. Everytime he goes out, he draws attention to himself, and not the good type. Accusations of drug use, alcohol abuse, and beating his girlfriend, his face is often plastered over tabloid newspapers. We've taken steps to make sure that when he loses his head it won't be discovered he's a 180 year old immortal who carries a sword for protection. When a small town nobody goes missing, nobody bats an eyelash. When a football star who is constantly in the spotlight goes missing, people ask questions.

                                  Sir,

                                  Indira Bedi, turned up with a new student she just recruited out of the local Tower of Silence. The boy's name is Badri Toppur, a Parsi who died performing a religious ritual. From what I gathered, he died from aneurysm, unless it was an heart attack. Natural causes, anyway. Badri Toppur was left to rot on one of the "Towers of Silence"until he came back to life and was believed to be a demon bent on cursing former fellow Parsi. When Indira heard the tale of a young man coming back to life, she rushed from the office and managed to put Badri Toppur to safety in his home. I've already begun a Watcher profile for Badri Toppur, to be added to the database.

                                  With regards,
                                  R. Sundaram

                                  The oldest living immortal woman, Xanthia is without a doubt the grande dame in the immortals community. Always a lady, with a sense of style and elegance that transcended millennia, Xanthia is Princess Grace with a three thousand year reign. But gentle Xanthia is not without her bite, too -- no Immortal lives so long without a formidable sword arm, even if they do own an abbey on Holy Ground. She is also a remarkable teacher, passing on both her knowledge of the sword and her wisdom and love to numerous students, some of whom followed her teachings better than others. There are many legends about her -- as a lover of Agamemnon, as keeper of the mythical Methuselah's stone, as model for the Venus de Milo -- but it is her legendary graciousness that will bring her into the millennia to come.

                                  in the SSI after two years of training

                                  The SIS warned Meghan MacKay against Robert Henderson, urging her to stay clear of him : this was a Dark Quickening alert. But Meghan listed to her own heart, not to her head and looked for her past teacher. She didn't need to look for him, he alrerady was hunting her.
                                  When they faced each other, Meghan tried to takl him out of his madness, unfortunately she was adressing the MacTaggert bits that festered in Hendrson's psyche. You do not reason a raving psychopaht like Kevin MazcTaggert.
                                  And when Henderson drew his sword, Bang ! He waqs shot from range by Raymond d'Amboise, the SIS' own master sniper. The Eadwulf, d'Amboise and Chambers took Henderson to a secluded location while Teague and Eadwulf scolded MacKay for tryong to play bait in such a dangerous situation.

                                  Before the beginning of the Immortals War, Meghan MacKay infiltrated the Scot nationalist party in order to document the rise of immortal-triggered nationalism in the country watched over by Robzert Henderson and Andrew MacNair, but found none of it. While Warren Cochrane was known as an ardent supporter of Scottish independance, he declared not guilty after having been murdered along with eight other immortals during August 2011' attacks on the UK immortals. Warren was the shadow of hismelf, wracked with guilt over the murder of his most recent student (see Andrew Donelly chronicle) and took few part in the rise of nationalism in Scotland.
                                  During her investigation, Meghan found no foul play from any immortal, but she has proven herself as such a valuable member of the SIS group that she didn't need the help of Henderson and MacNair who were already busy with covering the growing number of immortals deaths in their part of United Kingdom.

                                  Würzburg. Dug up from burial site by Odolf who
                                  tried to teach her her the rules of immortality

                                  The Chronicle of Cristyne of Würzburg is a sad one, the tragic story of a woman suffering from what we call today bipolar disorders who was killed by frightened people and taken in by Odolf, former student of Xanthia of Melitus. Odolf stayed five years with his protege, because he couldn't let her on her own and killing her was impossible to him; monasteries or convents weren't options either. Odolf did his best to cure Cristyne from her insanity, until he decided to find his old teacher, Xanthia, who was living in Netherlands in those days, hoping she would help him cure Cristyne from her madness. This was in 1035.
                                  While on the road to Dusseldorf, Odolf's Watcher was killed by bandits while trailing his assignments and kille, his body recovered two weeks after he sent his last report to the supervisor for Germany. In those days, the roads weren't safe.
                                  Odolf re-appeared fifty years later in Vienna, Austria, in the company of Henry Fitzmartin, one of his former students; Cristyne wasn't with the two immortals. Odolf never mentioned Cristyne in conversation, there are no headhunters reported active between 1035 and 1085 in Western Europe around Germany and Netherlands, although we do have a list of possible suspects : Breschau of Livonia, the Hauser Brothers, Hansel Rau.
                                  The final fate of the madwoman of Würzburg remained unknown, until she was found in a madhouse of Elbing, Germany, by Sean Burns in 1825. Sean took her with him to London where she lived with him at the Royal Hospital of Bethlehem where he was officing as a doctor; she now resides permanently at Black Friar.

                                  Nils Dacke shows no signs of progress, still wrapped up in paranoia, living in his tower of ivory so to speak, in fear of the Gahtering he predicted would take place twenty years from now. Nothing we can say can reassure him and since he still presents a danger to himself and to the anonimity of Immortals I strongly recommend he be kept behind barsin Black Friar, where he feels the safest. A shame since he was one of the greatest heroes of Medieval Scandinavia with Genna Jorgensen and the Six of Vinland. But even heroes have feet of clay and can seek the calm of asylums such as Black Friar or the unlamented abbaye of Paul and Kalas.

                                  Ghostly Eugene lives behind many walls : the walls of Black Friars, the walls of his own dellusion of being a ghost, the walls of the holy grounds on which he sought safe haven during the last decades of hislife before he joined us in this place. He is a very afraid man, convinced he is a ghost and nothing anyone of us can say to him can make him change his mind. He is dellusional or he is simeply aware of his Immortality and chosses to run away from reality by hiding in his own madness. Truly sad, I don’t belive he will be seeing the final days of the Gathering like the other poor souls trapped here.

                                  The SIS warned Meghan MacKay against Robert Henderson, urging her to stay clear of him : this was a Dark Quickening alert. But Meghan listed to her own heart, not to her head and looked for her past teacher. She didn't need to look for him, he alrerady was hunting her.
                                  When they faced each other, Meghan tried to takl him out of his madness, unfortunately she was adressing the MacTaggert bits that festered in Hendrson's psyche. You do not reason a raving psychopaht like Kevin MacTaggert.
                                  And when Henderson drew his sword, Bang ! He waqs shot from range by Raymond d'Amboise, the SIS' own master sniper. The Eadwulf, d'Amboise and Chambers took Henderson to a secluded location while Teague and Eadwulf scolded MacKay for tryng to play bait in such a dangerous situation.

                                  Original cultural affiliation : Welsh
                                  Born : 1937; Carnathen, Wales

                                  trekking in the forest

                                  Carnathen. Mentored by Rhiannon Teague after his
                                  body was recovered during swamps cleaning
                                  Operation sponsored by government

                                  When the intact body of Dafydd Huws was recovered near Carnathen, the scientific world was puzzled at seening an delirious man who somehow survived drowning in quicksands and talked like a man born in the 1930’s. Rhiannon Teague got wind of the affair and investigfated the matter, finding a new immortal; she took he matter in her own hands after warning the SIS which put pressures on Wales agencies to release Huws to the competent hands of Teague. Dafydd Huws became a permanent guest at Sean Burns’ Black Friar Asylum after it became obvious the man would never recover his sanity : drowning again and again for thirty years, sliding from half-consciousness to coma, with watery sand in your lungs is bound to destroy your psyche. Dafydd Huws thinks himself back in the Carnathen of the 1950’s; oblivious to the outside world, his mind forever gone.
                                  When the Immortals War erupted and the other immortals patients of Burns rioted, Dafydd was away with the fairies, so to speak, and was never aware of it.

                                  A victim of immortality, Una's regenerative powers allowed not only every part of her body to regenerate, but also her mind and consciousness; thus she still lived in the past, forever trapped in the hours in which she had been raped and beaten to death in her home of Manchester. She was confused by her environment (the padded cell in which she was locked up) but her mind replayed to her the fourteen hours she had spent from waking on morning up to her death. Once "dead", it would endlessly start back over. She was lucky Maple chose to become a nurse during the eighties, and coincidentally arrived in that hospital. Understanding the torments Una was going through, Maple had her "mysteriously vanish" and took her away.
                                  But Una's madness couldn't be cured, in spite of Sean Burns' help who discovered what was really wrong with the immortal. She still lives at Black Friar under sedation, under the care of Burns and his team.

                                  We are lucky James Morgan was in one of those periods where he sees ennemies ready to kill him and cowers in fear because Jacob Kell would have found a powerful ally after 2013 Breakout. That was one less killer for the SIS to deal with since Morgan stayed safe in his cell, reliving again the bloodied battle he fought agaisnt the Scots, the Irish, the Spaniards, etc.. Haunted by the ghosts of the few Immortals he was forced to kill.Interestingly enough we could find no trace of his activities in past chronicles, as if the Immortals he allegedly killed never existed I nthe first place. Oh sure, he has been see in the company of the Secret Immortals Services and was confronted by the Spanish Cabal in Toledo during Renaissance era but he didn’t seem to play a pivotal role in the affairs of the British Empire, as is the SIS thought him unworthy of counting him among hteir pairs. Did they see the madman luring beneath those wild eyes. He has been insane for decades, but who’s to know he wasn't like this since the beginning of his Immortality ? Either that and he is delusionnal about Immortals he thinks he killed, or Richeard ofMercia once recruited him to quickely disown him.

                                  Born : 1777; Chios, Greece

                                  were slaughtered by Ottoman troops

                                  First recorded sighting : 1823. Island of Chios,
                                  Greece. Found and mentored by Athalos of Thebes

                                  When Athena encountered Xanthia, she introduced herself as the goddess of Greek myth, stating that she was the last of her pantheon, all the other ones - Zeus, Athena, Dyonisos, Hephaestos et al. - had died before her. She felt alone and very old, time for her to rejoin her family. Xanthia didn't believe the tale of the immortal woman, thinking she was delusional. How right she was : Athena was a survivor from one of the worst massacres in Greece's history at the hands of the Ottoman Turks and went insane when she came back from the dead, in a burial plot, crushed under the bodies of her relatives and fellow villagers.
                                  She spent the following decades travelling around Greece, hiding in a shrine or another, keeping a low profile, thinking of herself as the 'true' Athena, the ancient goddess of ancient myths.

                                  Athena attacked Xanthia like a fury, even though she didn't have much muscle. She carried a short roman sword, a gladius, and assaulted the Mycenean immortal; Xanthia naturally had the upper hand, but Athena gave her a hard time, before the disbelieving eyes of the Mycenean's Watcher. Eventually, the fight ended with Athena on her knees, crying and begging. Telling her of the crumbling of the old religions, he Roman pantheon, the celtic pantheon, the greek and norse pantheons died one after the others when mankind ceased to believe in their existence.

                                  What purpose did they have in life if men stopped adoring them ? Xanthia answered that they lived on, in men's memory, through the old temples and through the immortals harboring their names.Still, Athena wanted to be reunited with her Pantheon, after 1400 years of a long life. Xanthia never was a destroyer of life - unless when forced to - and sent the miserable creature to her friend Sean Burns, who housed her in his asylum for insane immortals, those whose minds crumbled after centuries of immortal life.
                                  'Athena' still resides in the place, having understood she wasn't a goddess, simply a woman gifted with immortality, but with her mind still in the past.

                                  When Father Liam Riley found Emilie Valentin in that orphanage near Versailles, region of Paris, she was a fifteen-years old mere slip of a girl, shy like a mouse whose sole noteds of mark were a love of flowers and a powerful Presence of immortality - according to what he told Bertric and Amanda when referring to her.
                                  Liam took her in and became her teacher, helping her mature as years went on. Seeing her passion for flowers blossom, he sent her to Bertric, immortal botanist and ancient warrior who taught her well too. Emilie is now a nurse in Cork County, living away from the Game, but with her is the strenght she acquired from Grace, a doctor who used to be quite a firebrand in Mediaval Europe.

                                  Report on the Six of Vinland
                                  15.05.2000

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

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

                                  Thor : in mythology, God of thunder and battle
                                  Thor was usually portrayed as a large, powerful man with a red beard and eyes of lightning. Despite his ferocious appearance, he was very popular as the protector of both gods and humans against the protectorates of evil. He even surpassed his father Odin in popularity because, contrary to Odin, he did not require human sacrifices. In his temple at Uppsala he was shown
                                  standing with Odin at his right side. This temple was replaced by a Christian church in 1080. The Norse believed that during a thunderstorm, Thor rode through the heavens on his chariot pulled by the goats Tanngrisni ("gap-tooth") and Tanngnost ("tooth grinder").
                                  Lightning flashed whenever he threw his hammer Mjollnir. Thor wears the belt Megingjard which doubles his already considerable strength. His hall is Bilskirnir, which is located in the region Thrudheim ("place of might"). His greatest enemy is Jormungand, the Midgard
                                  Serpent. At the day of Ragnarok, Thor will kill this serpent but will die from its poison. His sons will inherit his hammer after his death.

                                  The story of Thor Kanwulfsson is a sad story of a man screwed up by immortality, by the Game, and more importantly by the education he received from his mother, Sygin Fenrisdottir. Conversations between the Vinland immortals state of the harsh methods used by "Sygin" to raise her children, to mold them from pre-immortals into efficient war-machines able to survive the perils of the Game. Kvasir himself, the calmer of the lot, stated that being raised by Kellistra was like a blade being forged through fire and cold water : the more ardent the fire, the stronger the steel. The result, according to him, is : six warriors from Vinland, but also a demented psychopath roaming the street of London, an unhappy killer hailing from China and many troubled immortals from Kellistra's line. While the Vinland clan apparently honor Kellistra as they would honor the Second Coming, some of them sounded a triffle bitter about their training as immortals.

                                  Eir and Freya are prompt to defend their mother, reminding their brothers of how she loved and nurtured her children, but Thor is the most bitter of the lot. When he was small, he fell in a ravine and received such a blow on his head that it resulted in disminished intelligence; although strong as an ox and capable in the arts of war, he didn't become a bright man, so Kellistra educated him with the utmost severity so as to tame the violence she felt in him. Did Thor felt pressured ? Did he feel less loved ? As centuries went back and the Vinland Clan's stature as heroes disminished, Thor lost himself in bottles of mead and became a chronic alcoholic, haunted by the dangers of the Game. Because of his alcoholism, he lost his beautiful wife, his daughter, his house, his wealth. He now lives in an isolated farm as a distillery operator, keeping out of trouble and sadly remembering the times when he was a hero.

                                  Lang Quing, or Wendy Lee, as she's known these days, is one of Henry of Kent's most successful students. Born in China, she has spent little time there; inspired by her teacher's tales of the wider world, Lang Quing has lived in most of the big cities in her three centuries on this earth: London, Paris, Madrid, Rome, New York. These days, it is San Francisco's Chinatown, as owner of Wendy Lee's Arts & Crafts, where she indulges her passion for art, in particular, her expertise at painting landscapes of most of the places she has seen. Don't let her small frame and beauty fool you, for Lang Quing is a well-trained student of one of the greatest swords of the Immortal world: Henry of Kent, grandmaster of headhunter-slayers. And like her teacher and mentor, the Little Dragon has slain a few headhunters in her time and i'm sure if any others cross her path, they will meet the same fate.

                                  Long may she live.

                                  From the Chronicle of Lang Quing

                                  Lang Quing was in tears when Henry of Kent announced her the demise of Guo Jing at the sword of Frank Bascombr. An immortal of unknown origins, Guo was barely a bleep on Watcher scope; never playing the Game, seldom meeting other imortals and living in obscurity until she was found and killed by Bascombe.
                                  She was an opportunity for a kill, as far as the Boer was concerned, but to Lang she was a good friend, albeit a poor student in swordmanship. Henry of Kent offered Kang to track down Bascombe but she would hear none of it : she wanted to nail the bastard herself, as she put it. Henry gave her the coordinates of the killer and acompanied her to the airport, giving her moral strenght. Two days later, after scoping out Cincinnati, Lang found Bascombe and challenged him to a fair fight. Bascombe never played fair, but Lang saw through his tricks and easly overpowered the arrogant Boer who fell to his knees, muttering 'finish it, Chinese whore'. 'The whore has a name, it's Lang Quing !' she yelled before sending Bascombe's rotten soul to the deepest pits of hell. Guop Jing was avenged and another headhunter has been removed from the active roster of immortals.

Remember Boyer ? Never underestimate a computer geek. Combined with the might of Lang Quing, China's Little Dragon, Kell's group didn't stand a chance. Etain of the Second Look's powers allow her to anticipate an opponent's moves during a fight, Paddy learnt all the tricks of the sword with mortal teachers and Internet, Seamus of Athlone found his fire back and Lang Quing, no surprise, was the one to take on Jacob Kell.

                                  From the Records of the Tribunal/Ravenwood
                                  21 January 2013

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

                                  Ireland always had a complicated history with its northern portion being part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ulster while the southern portion is part of Western Europe. It was decided to give it a particular status in the Northern part of Europe. Ever since the death of Annie Devlin, the Irish immortals have been livign in relative peace and now that the Immortals War is over, they no longer need to be afraid of the coming Gathering. Rasheed Awuja and Dela-O-Kande Umaru moved out of New-York to join hte Nigerian community of Dublin. Paddy Bell, a young immortal, is a webmaster; political satirist, film-maker, having founded the Laughing Horse Productions. Etain fo the Second Look is in Belfast. Lang Quing left San Francisco and settled in Dublin where Fahter Liam Riley also lives, bringing modern views of the world to the Catholic youth. Seamus of Athlone rea-appared in Limerick.

                                  Subject : Missing assignment

                                  Dear Sir,

                                  This morning, Etain of the Second Look rose up early and did her morning routine before freezing like a deerr caught in headlight, looking like she sensed the presence of another Immortal. She then quickly took her shoes, her purse and jumped out of her window before her flat suddenly exploded. Investigation by the firemen later concluded to a gaz leak.
                                  Etain rushed to the nearest store for clothing and vanishedl, losing me in the crowd. I lost her trace, but I suppose she took the first train at the station, looking like she was running from something... or someone.
                                  Did her clairvoyance abilities warn her of a gaz leak in her flat, or of the presence of a headhunter ?
                                  I hooked on the Watchers Grapevine to find out about any headhunters in town, but there were none.
                                  Etain took a Greyhound for New-York, trying apparently to put as much distance between herself and Ohio as possible. I do not know what went through her head, but I cannot follow her : my baby is due next week, not the right time for my Immortal to grow legs.

                                  I would like to request re-assignment with your kind permission, Sir, in the hope that Etain of the Second look will be safe in New-York.

                                  Cordially, Janie

                                  with Grayson and Ailell of Kells

                                  The Celtic tradition has been an oral one. Poems, songs, stories were not written down but told from father to son, and Teacher to student. Seamus is a walking repository of Celtic music and stories. I shudder to think of all that would be lost if he ever loses his head.
                                  I pray every day that he will begin to set down all that he knows. But that seems as likely as the ocean turning purple.
                                  Right now the man is completely smitten with Linnett’s new receptionist Moira. Maureen Butler, my boss and Seamus’s former watcher, told me she was able to get many fine stories by buying him a pint or two and showing a bit of leg. When I said I don’t think that would work in my case, she said a real Watcher would do whatever was necessary to fulfill his oath.
                                  At first I thought she was joking but when she showed up a week later at my apartment with a wig and a dress I was not laughing. I told her she was absolutely daft that there is no way the man would think I was a woman!
                                  But she said that by 10 pm the man is so blind drunk that he can barely recognize himself in the mirror.
                                  Well at 10 sharp I entered the pub all tarted up, Thank God no one recognized me, and sat a seat down from him. I no sooner had set my fanny on the stool when he started to chat me up. We talked for about 2 hours and I got some real good stories about the court of Brian Boru and he recited some love poetry in Gaelic. I had a tape recorder in my purse so I got down every word. It wasn’t till the end that he started getting grabby but I managed to hold him off. Maureen says that I did way better than she ever had and she has my outfit all picked out for next week.
                                  Dear God I need a transfer !

                                    From the Records of the Tribunal
                                    The Chronicle of Kellistra

                                    There is not really one Kellistra chronicle, per se, as each fragment of her life is but a piece of a puzzle spanning nearly three thousand years. About 2800 years ago, before the Christian Era, rode the most fearsome band of men that ever existed in those ancient times. They were the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and they pillaged their way across three continents in the span of a thousand years, leaving a bloodied mark on the world. According to old scrolls and conversations between several ancient immortals, the Horsemen once tutoring a young raven-haired woman by name of Kellistra. She followed the Four Horsemen all around the Mediterranean basin and beyond, parted ways from them and created her own legend: "Kellistra of the Northern Winds", the horsewoman who couldn't die and who sown death everywhere she went. When children didn't want to eat their soup, their parents told them Kellistra would come after her. Kings, emperors, fearsome soldiers and legendary heroes shivered for one thousand years at the mere mention of her name. She put many immortals to the sword, scoring big names most of the time. There's even a mention of her fighting the Kurgan, defeating him and making him cry. One can only shudder when thinking of the Kurgan's reputation ...
                                    Kellistra is terminally unpredictable: she is moral to mortals but kills male immortals the way a housecat kills a bird or a mouse, toying with them before delivering the fatal blow without working up a sweat. Yet, Heaven forbid she touch one hair of an immortal woman's head! Only God knows why. A mix of the Kurgan and Xanthia of Melitus, Kellistra is the one of the most powerful and ancient immortal women alive, a stone-cold killer, yet able to show the same care to her students as a mother to her children.

                                    Trying to find clues to past incarnations of her, we cross-referenced the Watcher Database and looked for any immortal women between the age of eighteen and twenty-five, possessed of a cunning personality and an habit of spreading tales of terror in their wake. Kellistra was an artist from way back, an artisan; we collected first Greek marbles and vase paintings attributed to her, then Japanese calligraphy and oil paintings, and then woodcuts and so forth. We put all those bios side by side the first time and, Eureka! They were all done by the same woman! We actually found seven bios: they are all the same women, medium sized with same complexion and hair color, bearing the hallmarks of ancient origins.


                                    SYGIN FENRISDOTTIR, Vinland 10th Century
                                    In the 11th century, Freydís joins an expedition to Vinland led by Þorfinnr Karlsefni, cross-identified as Kanwulf Odinson. Her major part in the story is intervening in a battle between the Norse and the native Skrælingjar. The natives are mounting an attack and have driven the Norse into a retreat.
                                    KUDRA IVANOVA, Italy 15th Century
                                    Kudra Ivanova first appeared on Watchers records when immortal Ludovico da Bologna entered in the service of Great Inquisitor Torquemada in 1483. There, he attended to the interrogations and burning of many "heretics", until his road crossed the one of a gypsy girl, barely out of her teens, by name of Kudra Ivanova. Is it the nature of Kudra's immortality, or just love as was often suggested, that forced Ludovico to hide the girl from the Inquisition ? Now one knows for sure, but Kudra acknowledged Ludovico's gesture and made sure to repay him for his kindness by predicting him his inevitable downfall when Torquemada would notice he didn't seem to age. Ludovic took her advice in consideration and faked a mortal death before fleeing out of Spain in the night, taking Kudra with him.
                                    CARMELA LA MORTE, Tuscan Valley, Italy, 1635
                                    In 1610, Carmela La Morte lit up the sky of the Tuscan Valley with the biggest fireworks display ever when she took out Rafael Trujillo, landlord, after ten years of marriage and the adoption of five children. The neighborhood attributed the mysterious event as a freak storm, and the death of Rafael as an accident fall in a ravine.
                                    ISRA OF ALGIERS, Northern Iran, Crimea 1635-1645
                                    In 1635, Isra of Algiers visits Hassan-ii-Sabah in his fortress of Alamut; no one known the exchange that took place between the two immortals, but Isra got out alive. She certainly was acquainted to him to keep her head on her shoulders. She spends the next decade scouring the Middle East territories from Iran to Turkey, living as a painter, selling her paintings to rich emirs andliving in one oasis in the desert, or another.
                                    She is looking for the elusive Methos, her search culminating in 1645 when she recuits Nasedding Hoca, Ahmet Dede and Evliya Celebi in the Crimean Khanate as hired help. She captures Lek Dukaghin and tortures him for information. Her search remained Inconclusive.
                                    KURDA ALEXANDRETTA, US Northeast 19th Century
                                    In 1808, Kurda Alexandretta investigates a string of grizzly murders involving young women foudndismembered and kills immortal Victor Von Rath, whose stories will partly inspire Mary Shelley with her book, Frankenstein.
                                    In 1833, Kurda Alexandretta settled near Guilford, England, and wed a pre-immortal named Guy le Strange whose immortality she triggered. Guy must have loved Kellistra very much since he has been in search for her until he took a quickening he shouldn’t have : under the influence of a “dark quickening”, who knows what he might want from the ancient immortal. Kurda relocated in Italy until 1848 where she met up with immortal Theodore Canot; usually, when she met a male immortal he would die. Not this time : she convinced him to put an end to his activities as slaver. Did she know him in his pre-immortal days ? No one knows for sure.

                                    1848-1859 : Gold Rush. Location, California. Like any of those elusive immortals appearing out of nowhere, came out of the woodwork, challenged James McPherson, six-hundred years old gold-digger, taking his head and land.
                                    1867 : Rides with Melvin Koren and the Comancheros; interesting to note that Melvin Koren was actually Kronos, her past teacher, and that she actually reunited with her former teacher. Finds his Comancheros to be a bunch of "reprobates unworthy to lick Caspian's whip". Mentors Ruby Proudfoot, young immortal woman, passes a bit of her temperament on her as well as a few tricks of the sword and wys to seduce men without working a sweat.
                                    1871, Chicago. She hunts again, this time a banker who is revealed to be King Minos in person, three thousand years old and the father/mentor of Taurus, cannibal and alleged immortal. When she kils him, his Quickening sets fire on a barn that triggers the Great Fire of 1871

                                    In 1918 she is in Saigon, Vietnam, hunting the elusive immortal known as Lung-shu. The two immortals talked for hours before parting ways. The Watchers kept tabs on her during three years in which she travelled a lot around Southeast Asia and killed a small number of immortals.
                                    In 1942, as Irena Kowalski, she is an underground resistance fighter in Poland Holland and Belgium, fighting the Nazis and working with immortal Frances Drummond.

Ursula answered killing the remaining members of the ODESSA did her a lot of good. This would mean she lost some of her immortal students to the Nazis and also maybe she led a resistance network in war times.

                                    as Sir Agravaine of Britain

                                    Merlin, as wise as he was, planted the seed of corruption and betrayal with the introduction of his student Mordred the Black inside Arthur's court : with intrigues, subterfuge, small talk, Mordred disrupted the unity of the knighthood and brought about the end of the Round Table when he triggered the union of Guinevere and Lancelot, convinced Arthur to launch his three most faithful supporters - Bors, Galahad, Percival- on the quest for the Holy Grail, weakening the slowly disbanding Round Table. When came the time for the final battle, Mordred fought Arthur to the death after the Battle of Camlaan, bringing about the end of the legendary knighthood. The remaining Knights fought valiantly alongside King Arthur at Camlaan, united one last time.
                                    King Arthur fought Mordred to death and decapitated him, as a pre-immortal, dying later from wounds suffered during the battle of Camlaan. No one knows who received Mordred's Quickening.

                                    • Thanks for the UK chronicles, my friend, much appreciated. Now i can complete my own updates! Lol

                                      I'm intrigued by that Swiss Immortal who took on the SIS! Could you post his chronicle, please, and also the Horst and Hugo Hauser chronicles so i can fill in some blanks...

                                      Cheers

                                      • Apollo, I have been posting the past stories on the Highlander Imagine page on Facebook. People are getting curious about the SIS, but before I am posting anything, would you like to join us ? We are a very friendly lot. I don't know if you have heard about the Highlander Imagine Series.

                                        The creative forums are dead here, Imagine is full of life. I suggest we move out of here permanently, unless you like your anonimity.

                                        The Hauser chronicles remainsd mostly unchanged, here is the Swiss Immortal.

                                        Leading attacks on SIS Immortals

                                        18 August 1559: Pope John Paul IV dies aged 83 of "natural causes." The Watchers at the time identified Eadwulf and Raimond d'Amboise at large in Rome at the time. Eadwulf once studied with herbalists in the Middle Ages and is known to be an expert in several lethal toxins which leave no trace. We have long suspected the Society arranged the Pope's demise as revenge for his involvement in several plots to remove or kill Elizabeth I.

                                        Three hundred years later, in 1848 after the Swiss Guards temporarily disbanded when Pope Pius IX fled to Gaetia, Raymond d'Amboise and Eadwulf were kidnapped and tortured by an ancient Swiss Immortal who was bodyguard of the Pope and wanted revenge for what he considered to be an evil deed from the SIS. Keeping them hostages, he called for the entire SIS to surrender to him, or Eadwulf and Raymond who surely die. When they didn't respond he organized separate attacks on Richeard of Mercia, Allegra Chambers, Helen Bondeville with mercenaries armed with muskets and finally got his wish when he was confronted by Richeard in person while Allegra and Helen freed their friends. The ancient swiss guard was taken out by Richeard of Mercia himself and thus a lesson was leant : to always stay on their guard where past deeds were concerned.The pasdt can always come back to haunt you.

                                        Hauser and Ceirdwyn. Horst was losing the fight
                                        and dived into the Seine to escape. Hugo fled.

                                        The Hauser twins are nearly unique in the Immortal community. They are inseperable, dress exactly alike (lately they have taken to wearing identical black trench coats and wrap-around shades) and when they speak, they finish each other's sentences. Their symbiotic relationship extends to sharing Quickenings.
                                        They take turns fighting other Immortals, one brother hanging back ready to receive the Quickening and both seem to benefit from the power received. The only time they were both forced to fight at the same time was in Florence in 1537 when they encountered Deoneces and Kyra of Sparta. Both brothers were no match for the two Spartans and barely escaped with their lives.
                                        Now they have set up shop in Boston and hiring their services out to various terrorist groups while scouring the Northeastern seaboard for other Immortals.

                                        The Bergstrom brothers aren’t just sharp on the board as CEO’s of Swarthaneim Technologies, they are two of the best swords in Scandinavia, worthy heirs of the Kanwulfsson Clan also regaling mortals with their Viking age reenactement shows every summer – June, July, August - which gather two thousand people each year near Oslo. And of course it gathers the wrong kind of people, other immortals, ready to do battle against them. Mortals believe its part of the show, when it is part of the Game. But in the end, the Bergstroms stand victorious.

                                        • Thanks for posting these chronicles, my friend. Once again, greatly appreciated. I liked the Swiss Immortal's story.

                                          Unfortunately, i'm not on Facebook or any social media. I like to keep my personal details off-line. Had a bad experience a few years back because of personal details i had online and I've been private ever since. You're more than welcome to post all of the SIS details over there if you wish with my full blessing.

                                          Meantime, i'm working on filling in the details of the other Hellfire Club members, which i'll post soon.

                                          Cheers

                                            First recorded sighting : 83 AD. Caledonia
                                            Battle of Mons Graupius, fighting Roman Empire
                                            with Alex Raven and Caledonian Confederacy

                                            Jinny Dall thought she’d get her revenge when she confronted Kanwulf in Leverburgh, four hundred years after he raped her and left her broken in the outer hebrides. This is a strong woman who prepared herself to face her tormentor and trained like crazy to finally face him. Unfortunately, her demons drover her mad and when finally it was time to face her own private demon in the flesh, her resolve faltered. She saw the once proud viking plunderer reduced to a hollow shell of the man, a madman looking for his treasured axe. But Kanwulf is like Jinny Dall, he never forget to tie up loose ends and when he saw how the apt fighter Jinny Dall was, he picked his sword and gave her the fight she wanted.
                                            Sometimes, you must be careful what you wish for : you may get it and also get a sword through your neck.

                                            • Thanks for the latest posting, my friend. Feel free to post all my chronicles and our co-created chronicles over on the other site.

                                              Meanwhile, the HELLFIRE CLUB/SIS SAGA continues:

                                              Nicholas Kedgick

                                              Known aliases: Nicolas Emory (birth name)

                                              Born: 1188, Westminster, Kingdom of England
                                              First death: 1222; Gang leader hanged as a ring-leader
                                              following riots after London defeats Westminster in an
                                              annual wrestling contest
                                              First teacher: Aldrich Monk

                                              First recorded sighting: 1222, Westminster.
                                              Dug from unmarked grave by Monk and recruited
                                              into his Brotherhood

                                              By the 1220s, Aldrich Monk and Evangeline Black had grudgingly agreed to work together with Sampson Brass and his protégé Honoria Dedlock as the Brimstone Brotherhood to establish their own underground empire. At the time Monk mentored Emory, aka Nicholas Kedgick, into the Brotherhood, the organisation was already running a rigged gambling operation in many towns and cities in England, while Monk ran the Brotherhood from a hidden base in London under the alias of The Sparrow to avoid the attentions of Richeard of Mercia and his cohorts.

                                                Bouchra Ouaziz

                                                The Fantasia events celebrate North African tradition of a close relationship with masculinity, horses and warfare, they are headed by Immortal Bouchra Ouaziz, a centuries old woman who was taught the ways of the Game by an European Immortal named Anne DeBrabant. Bouchra earned the respect of Kassim ibn Sallis and dozens of male Immortals who didn’t believe she would outlive the 16ht cvnetury, yet she did.
                                                A lot of Immortals underestimated her,believing her an easy mark, even Hazeem al Bachrim admired her prowesses with the sword and spared her pretty head where cold-hearted killer Xavier St. Cloud defeated her, raped her before contemptuously sparing her head. The problem with rape is it cannot be healed like so much flesh wound and for centuries Bouchra sought to redeem her hono,r until 1994 when Duncan MacLeod killed her ennemy, allowing her to lay her ghosts to rest.

                                                Dora Maar

                                                After they left St. Christopher, Emerenzia and Dora Maar settled in a Benedictine convent of Hvar, Croatia, away from the Game and from human civilisation. Emerenzia still experiments on herbal remedies while Dora busies herself on pottery, her favorite art form. Both women live in the dellusion that they will live out the coming Gathering by cowering on holy grounds, but holy grounds aren’t safe anymore and sooner or later they will be lured to the outside world, to face their own kind. Centyuries of Immortality taught htem to fear other Immortals and not only that, but also that the world never truly changes : the violence is the same everywhere. Fine by us if they are happy in that place, but the best places of hiding can never protect people forever.

                                                The Cairo Street Kids live on the streets but aren’t predators like the Coyoteros or Kenneth, they simply try to survive as best as they can, wary of adult-sized Immortals like Kemistos and Kaneptah who tried to murder them, or the Ra Brotherhood which try to lure them in their covenant for who knows what kind of diabolical schemes. They survived through hundreds of years of Egyptian history, waiting for the time of the Gathering when finally they can give a sense to their eternal lives. Farah and Hassan protected the three younger ones who have been living in Neverland since their First Death, but that could prove to be a disservice when they will finally face prawning Immortals. Farah did what she thought best for her cohorts.

                                                Typhoid Mary

                                                Black Annie of Strathclyde, aka Typhoid Mary, has been conclusively identified as a former disciple of Kronos as Sir Korvin of England was identified as a past identity of the Four Horsemen leader. It was an interesting theory to imagine Mary the typhoid carrier as a student of Kronos, alleged bringer of the Black Plague to Europe in the 14th century.
                                                Typhoid Mary has been using her particular gift as a professional killer, using her single touch to murder her quarries and in the Game she has been using poisoned throwing daggers to umbalance her opponents before the final kill. A most dangerous woman living in a dangerous world and who has been forced to adapt herself to circumstances like Felicia Martins or Kistin Gilles before her.

                                                Mea Cascio lived for too long and she wanted to be reunited with her Lord in Heaven. Though she loved her husband and her children very much, she felt ready for the gentleman from Spain who introduced himself as Esteves de Aristia. Mea begged Esteves to spare the lives of her loved ones, in return for surrendering her head willingly. Estever happily obliged, for once not having to fight for his miserable prize : the Quickening of a good woman who had spent too many centuries in the valley of the shadows.
                                                Argentina felt safe heaven for her, for a time, but six hundred years took their toll on her and her children where almost men and women by now, ready to live their own lives, to get married and make families of their own. They didn't need her anymore.
                                                Mea kneeled gracefuilly and didn't wait long to be sent to the afterlife. Her husband mourned and re-married, her two sons and three daughters mourned and lived however long they had on Earth and didn't turn out to be pre-Immortals, as we once suspected.

                                                She was called the bear woman by her men, because of her switching moods and the way she ferociously defended her cubs, a tribe of foster children born in the 14th century who followed her everywhere and whom she trained as spies, saboteurs and assassins infiltrating ennemies lines in warfare. She was even thought to have been a past identity of legendary Kellistra because of her former alias of Kallistrate and the fact Kellistra once called herself Ursual Katz, seemingly a dead giveaway. However, Kallisto was found to have been born in the Nicopolis Theme of the 12th century and was identified as a past disciple of Seraphina of Rome. So much for the Kellistra/Kallisto theory. Kallisto disappeared during the Byzantine civil war of 1357 with her children and was never heard from again.

                                                favors of hero Cuchulain of Muirhtemne
                                                First teacher : Deirdre of the Srorrows
                                                Known past associates : Deirdre of the Srorrows,
                                                Cuchulain of Muirthemne, Ailell of Kells
                                                Known ennemies : Aoife
                                                First recorded sighting : 850 Repelling Norse
                                                invasion of Outer Hebrides with Ailel of Kells

                                                Some sisters are simply born to hate each other, case in point Scathag of Skye and Aoife of Alba, two women linked by birth and by a bitter hatred that lasted eleven hundred years. This because of their love for legendary hero Cuchulain of Muirthemne who couldn't choose between the two women and had to love both. Unfortunately, none of the two sisters could share Cuchulain and the once friendly rivalry grew to staunch hatred. And as fate will have it, their love for another Irish hero, Ailell of Kells, fueled this particular hatred in the ninth century and had not Ailell interfered in the Game, the two sisters would no doubt have killed each other.
                                                Missing since the 12th century, historians theorize they still live, driven by anger and lust for men; each time they consort, robbing each other's sexual partner in a twisted game unles it be simply to pester each other endlessly.

                                                • Thanks for the latest updates, my friend. Once again, great work, especially the two Scottish sisters.

                                                  Meanwhile, the next two updates to the Hellfire Club Immortals:

                                                  Theobald Cleaver

                                                  Known aliases: Thomas Folville (birth name)

                                                  Born: 1299, Charnwood, Leicestershire,
                                                  England
                                                  First death: 1341; With the Folville Gang, led by his
                                                  adopted brother, Richard, cornered and executed in
                                                  Teigh, Rutland, by Sir Robert Coalville.
                                                  First teacher: Aldrich Monk

                                                  First recorded sighting: 1341, Teigh, East Midlands, England.
                                                  Rescued from the executioner's block by Aldrich Monk and
                                                  inducted into the Brimstone Brotherhood.

                                                  The adopted brother of the Rev. Richard Folville, and Eustace, Robert, and Walter Folville, he was one of the fifty mercenaries of the Folville Gang who had ambushed and killed the corrupt Baron of the Exchequer, Sir Roger de Belar, who had made threats of violence to Eustace Folville, his family and neighbours, in January 1326. An arrest warrant was issued to apprehend those involved in the murder. Although the warrants were later withdrawn, the Folvilles were years later the victims of retribution in 1341 from Sir Robert Coalville and his men, and Thomas was the only one to walk away, joining the Immortal Brimstone Brotherhood led by Aldrich Monk, eventually changing his name to Theobald Cleaver and becoming its White Bishop.

                                                  Serena Harper

                                                  Known aliases: Sadie Cropper (birth name), Lady Eleanor
                                                  Creacy

                                                  Prior occupations: Socialite & black widow, pickpocket,
                                                  street urchin

                                                  Born: 1705, Maidstone, Kent, England
                                                  First death: 1731; Stabbed by master thief defending a
                                                  young boy pickpocket he was beating for failing to steal
                                                  enough valuables
                                                  First teacher: Aldrich Monk

                                                  First recorded sighting: 1736, London, England.
                                                  While posing as the Lady Eleanor Creacy, attempts to
                                                  seduce Aldrich Monk. Amused, he reveals her true nature
                                                  and recruits her into the Hellfire Club

                                                  Recruited off the streets of Maidstone by a master thief to join his band of child pickpockets, Sadie Cropper demonstrated a talent for sleight-of-hand and quickly rose through the ranks to become his right-hand-woman. She grew an affinity for the youngsters in the gang and when one young boy returned with a less than usual take, he faced the wrath of their master who began beating him with a cane. She stepped in and was stabbed in a fit of rage, dying her First Death, and was dumped in an alley.
                                                  She recovered, unaware of her immortality, returned to the ramshackle hideout and beat her former master to death with his own cane.
                                                  Over the next five years she nurtured her gift for mimicry and carved out a living exploiting her femininity to seduce her way into high society, marrying rich landowners and then arranging "accidents" before moving on to her next rich husband. In 1736, she crossed paths with Aldrich Monk and met her match. He soon apprised her of her true nature and recruited her into the Hellfire Club, from where she changed her name to Serena Harper and became its White Rook.

Mad Bridget Ingvarsen got to him and took his head before he could take hers and there is no doubt she is coming for Victor Hesse now, unless Hesse and his pre-teen girlfriend decide ro evacuate Hawai. Ever since the eruption of Mt Vesuvius, volcanic eruptions always felt like bad omens to Immortals across the world.

The once mentor of the fearsome Iberian Brothers (and sister) perished humiliated and raped, a disgraceful way of ending her Immortality. The woman deserved better than Darek Alak.

This time Woo defeated her lifelong opponent and as usual since the 1930's, both women hopped in the sack and went at it like two furies in heat. Woo Bok-Soon and Violent Song have been on opposite sides of Korea's history but that never prevented them from loving each other ardently as if there were no tomorrows. It seems the recent threat of nuclear armagueddon from North Korea renewed the two women's passion for each other and this time, maybe, Violet could forsake her country for good and stay in South Korea with her lover.

                                                    Sang Yum whose name means “Secret Mother” has been rumored to have founded a secret lamassery crammed with Immortal women, a place of worship she called Shangri-La, hiddne within the mountaisn of Tibet. Shangri-La was never found but it is a tenacious urban legend of the Immortal world, akin to the legend of Methos before he was proven living and hiding among us Watchers. Methos has been conclusively proven as a past acquaintence/lover or mentor of Sang Yum in the 19th century under his persona of Dr. Benjamin Adams and there is a strong possibility they first met in the 5th century BC when Methos was a disciple of Sun Tzu in ancient China. In 1996, San Yum moved out of Tibet to the Tibetan community of New-York in America and stayed there for ten years before returning to her homeland. She is busy with the monastery of Khor-Biyong , a place were several Immortal women sojourned, away from the perils of the Game. She built her own safe haven from the Game in her small corner of the world until the Gathering comes.

                                                    1832 in Palestine saw the conquest of Palestine by Ottoman commander Muhammad Ali of Egypt, and serving him in his armies were Jamal Labouni and his cohorts, the Eternal Swords of Allah. Najia El Khalej faced a fierce Jewish fighter named Sobel Har-Zahav who organised a well-armed resistance against the Ottomans within the walls of Jerusalem. Had she stayed wihin these walls, she would have been safe from the sword of Najia who lured her outside end challenged her to a fight; Sobel was a good sword in the Game but Najia never played fair and took her out with the assistance of her own mentor Melik Tanju.
                                                    Egyptian rule was challenged in 1834 by a countrywide popular uprising against conscription, the legacy left by Sobel who inspired her people's will to free themwelves from Ottoman Egypt's rule.

When Olivia reunited with her former disciple, she found a rabid dog in need to be put down quick and in spite of Iriana’s best training on the ring, she was no match for her once teacher and friend. Research is in motion to cross-reference her whereabouts with the deaths of Latin American Immortals killed by unidentified Immortals.

                                                    Xuoco Elcano was wary of others of his kind and playing the Game in his ownfashion : a blow gun with paralysing darts to weaken his opponents and then a strike of his machete, collecting heads for the past hree hundred years. God knows how many Immortals he killed before Amazons from a rival tribe killed him for trespassing on their territory, giving him an ignominous death, his Quickening forever lost. All Xuoco wanted was to protect his homeland from the whites, his reward was being killed by the people he swore to protect and serve. A fatal bit of irony in his case.

                                                    Alexei Miguez liked the peace and quiet from the Llano, an Immortal damaged by the Game, constantly on the run from Federales, from white men, from headhunters; the once champion of Latin American wars of independence relied on contraband alcohol to find courage in the Game and assaulted any Immortal crossing him, good or bad. There wasn’t much of a hero left in that shell of a man who finally was found beheaded one morning, burnt grass and cattle killed by lightnings all around him. Obviously an Immortal had proven stronger than he was, unless this was a friend or relative of one the people Miguez killed in a fit of uncontrolled rage. Alcohol, lack of self-control and loneliness are the tree factors which provoked the llanero’s downfall.

                                                    The elusive Maria Rosa who led the Contestado War of 1912-1916 in Brazil and has been missing for the past century has been conclusively identified as Manuela Simoes, a Portugal-faring lady in waiting who fled an abusive home in Braga where she was the clandestine “mistress” of her foster father. Once adopted at the eight of five, she was constantly abused since the age of six to sixteen until she finally stabbed her father to death and ran away from home to live on the streets as a whore before Immortal Vasco Balboa rescued her from a life of misery. Vasco sensed the pre-immortal in her diminutive frame and recuited her in the Portuguese Civil War of 1828 during which she met her First Death. Vasco and Manuela left Portugal for Colonuial Brazil where they were last seen before disapearing in 1838 in the jungles, following an exploration party. Vasco re-appeared in Bogota, Colombia in 1864 where he was killed by Immortal Escobar Gallego, his companion wasn’t seen with him and was presumed dead. One never should presume an Immortal dead before seeing his or her body. Manuela was active, alive and well in Brazil where she killed a local sexual predator, Miguel de Boaventura before diseappearign again in 1916.

It took the combined ruse of Darius and Sean Burns to free the couple from their prison and to send them to safety to London where they lived until Carolyn’s husband natural death. In 1904, Carolyn worked for Sean Burns as his secretary, assistant and dsiciple in the study of psychology and of Sigmund Freud theories on how mankind’s behavior is pre-determined by his emerging sexuality.
                                                    One century later, upon Sean Burns’s death by the blade of Duncan MacLeod, Carolyn took the reigns of the Black Friars asylum and is trying her best to ease the sufferings of mental patients under her care, mortals or of the Immortal kind. To her, healing the sick of mind isn’t just about giving pills and locking them away from society: it is also about reaching out to them, listening to them and talking with them She has done wonders so far. But can she truly help the more unstable Immortals locked in Black Friars, I sincerely doubt it. She better beware : she survived one breakout in 2014, next time she may not be so lucky.
