    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

                          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 ?

                          Cameroon. Leading Operation Ghost Town with
                          Ibrahim Endele

                          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.

                          into indentured servitude

                          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.
