  • Thanks for these latest chronicles and updates, my friend. Still loving your work!

    Here's the conclusion to the HELLFIRE CLUB saga with the final update to Dominic Piper's stats and the chronicle of another deceased member of the Club:

    Dominic Piper

    Recorded kills: Seth Parker

    Born: 1809, Bristol, England
    First death: 1831; Queen Square riots in Bristol,
    died in the cavalry charge led by Lt Colonel Thomas
    Brereton, while protesting House of Lords rejection of
    the Reform Bill
    First teacher: Seth Parker

    First recorded sighting: 1861, Tooley St, London.
    Beheaded his teacher, Seth Parker, in a warehouse at
    Cotton's Wharf. The Quickening caused the Tooley Street
    Fire which raged for two days, destroying many buildings

    Seth Parker

    Known aliases: Simon Pepper
    Notable characteristics: Expert with sword, knives and
    musket
    Weapon (s): Knives and 18th century basket-hilt rapier

    Status
    Most recent base of operations: London, England
    Occupation: Black Knight, Hellfire Club
    Prior occupations: Founder, Black Friars Club,
    Hellfire Club
    Roster of Immortals Status: Deceased
    Date: 22 June 1861
    Place: London
    Victor: Dominic Piper
    Watcher: Hellfire Club Watcher Team

    Background
    Original cultural affiliation: English
    Born: 1754, Reading, England
    First death: 1788; Highwayman shot trying to
    rob stagecoach Evangeline Black was travelling in
    First teacher: Evangeline Black
    Known associates: Hellfire Club's Inner Circle
    Known past associates: Court of Beauties, Knights
    of Charlemagne
    Known enemies: Secret Immortals Society

    First recorded sighting: 1788, Finchley Common,
    outskirts of London. Shot by Evangeline Black,
    mentored by her and recruited into the Hellfire Club

    Recruited into the Hellfire Club in 1788 by Evangeline Black after he tried to rob her and was then killed to activate his immortality, Seth Parker was the Club's original Black Knight until he mentored Dominic Piper following the Bristol Riots of 1831. The ambitious Piper soon grew tired of being the Club's assassin and enforcer, coveting a more prominent position in its ranks. So at a warehouse at Cotton's Wharf on Tooley Street, London, 1861, Piper seized his moment, catching his mentor unawares and decapitating him. Fleeing the fire caused by the Quickening, Piper claimed the position of Black Knight from Aldrich Monk who, grudgingly, acquiesced, although Black Queen Evangeline Black, Parker's former teacher, remains to this day wary of the devious Dominic Piper.

    • Very good conclusion, and I like the Dominic Piper story with his teacher.

      • Thanks, Gardner. Glad you liked it. We now have backgrounds for all the Hellfire Club members to match that of the SIS.

        I now have a new project i'm working on about a secret group of Immortals who have shunned the Game for thousands of years. They live on Holy Ground and avoid the company of other Immortals. They are led by an ancient Egyptian Immortal, a former student of Inyotef, a scholar and philosopher who founded the Immortal Order of the Sacred Knowledge. The Sacred Order for short.

        They are dedicated to collecting and preserving the Lost Knowledge of Mankind, holding it until they deem mankind is ready and worthy enough for its secrets to be made known. A select group of mortals are chosen each generation to live and work within the walls of the Sacred Temple of Knowledge. Scrolls and manuscripts believed lost for thousands of years were actually rescued and preserved by the Order.

        The Watchers have suspected its existence for centuries but until now have never been able to prove it exists or to infiltrate its ranks. Until now.

        Twenty years ago, Joe Dawson tasked two young, dedicated Watchers to scour the world in search of clues to the Order's location and to discover all they could about the Immortals within its ranks. He lost contact with them after a year and never heard from them again.

        Twenty years later, one of the Watchers returns to Dawson with an astonishing story of an Order with knowledge and power enough to send shockwaves around the world, but with a code of honour and a dedication to preserving the secrets of the ancients that outstrips all other Immortals in the Chronicles.

        Here is a breakdown of the Order's ranks, i'm working on the chronicles of the Immortals that hold these positions:

        - Grand Master of the Books (formerly High Keeper of the Tablets): one of Inyotef's students, the Order's founder.

        - Master of the Black Books (formerly Keeper of the Black Tablets; the secret knowledge of dead civilisations, witchcraft and sorcery)

        - Master of the Books of Egypt (inc all of Africa)

        - Master of the Books of Anatolia (inc the Middle East & Central Asia)

        - Master of the Books of the East (inc China, Japan and Asia)

        - Master of the Books of Rome (inc all of Europe)

        - Master of the Books of the Americas (inc North, Central & South America)

        These seven Immortals have given up their birth names and adopted the names of seven famous mortal librarians:

        Demetrius, Zenodotus, Eratosthenes, Apollonius, Aristophanes, Aristarchus and Callimachus.

        Additionally there are several other positions in the Immortal ranks of the Order:

        - Overseer of the Scriptorium

        - Chief Archivist

        - Pathfinder: rescuing or locating ancient books and scrolls (there are three Immortal Pathfinders in the Order)

        - Sentinels: they protect the Pathfinders, the only Immortals in the Order to wield swords. They only fight to defend themselves or the Pathfinder they are assigned to (like the Pathfinders there are only three Sentinels)

        That's it for now. I hope this whets your appetite. I'll post the first chronicles soon and begin this new project.

        Cheers

        • Whoa! I wait with bated breath, Apollo. Lot of good ideas to be found there, and to be developed.
          I count fifteen Immortals in total. Are all of them brand new Immortals or missing Immortals pre-existing in the chronicles ?

          Background
          Original cultural affiliation : English
          Born : 1068; Newcastle upn Tyne, England
          First death : 1088 Rebellion against the Normans,

          First recorded sighting : 1172. Renovation of
          Newcastle under reign of King Henry II, reuniting
          with Henry Fitzmartin

          The love that daren’t say its name, i.e homosexuality, was frowned upon in the Midle Ages, viewed as a social deviancy, but not yet punished with death and torture as it would be in later centuries. Culberth of Winchester and Hadley of Newcastle posed as to knights and companions, hiding their relationship in plain sight and played the Game with the same vigor they had when demonstrating their love to each other. The Great Famine of England struck between 1315 and 1318, killing thousands, chaos reigned everywhere and amidst the chaos, Culberth and Hadley survived as their could and they were hungry for food, sustenance and especially sustenance of the Immortal kind. Sir Korvin of England was their chosen quarry, an easy picking they thought, one whose Quickening they could share. Unfortunately, the short-sized knight in black armor, with a scar bisecting his face, proved too strong for them and both men fell to the ground in minutes.
          They foolishly challenged a thousands years ofl Immortal once calling himself Kronos, leader of the Four Hosemen of the Apocalypse, a man fit for medieval times when death, persilence, war and famine reigned. Culberh and Hadley are barely remembered by their own kind and are now a footnote in the Watcher Chronicles for Medieval England.

          Rhiannon Teague
          UPDATE

          Each year at the same date,Rhiannon Teague commemorated the anniversary of the Special Operations Executive organisation which fought Nazis durign WWII, reuniting with her teacher Frances Drummond and the survivors of the organisation, agein men and women, well aware of Frances and Rhiannon Immortality. Themselves professionals prone to bear secrets, “the Baker Street Irregulars” never betrayed their two friends’ secret to anyone and congregated in London, drinking to past friends such as Noor Inyat Khan who died in Dachau in 1944 and was the first WWII Muslim heroine or Violette Szabo who died in Ravensbrück in 1945, remembering the time when they were heroes.
          While not a player of the Game like Frances, Rhinannon has been doing very well on the Immortal scene and keeps her sword sharp and her eyes on the lookout for any Immortal threatening the British kingdom. Or is it the survivor’s complex and the nightmares plaguing her which keep her going ? Because she cannot forget her mortal friends who died in the service of freedom and because she swore on the deathbed of former SOE operative Odette Hallowes in 1995 to keep on fighting tyranny in all its shapes.

          Victor : Kismet Necdet
          Watcher : Research, Immortals of the Balkans

          Background
          Original cultural affiliation : Byzantine
          Born : 530; Lazica, Byzantine Colchis
          Present-day Georgia
          First death : 546, Lazic (or Colchidian) War
          Fighting the Sassanid Persian Empire
          First teacher : Seraphina
          Known past associates : Seraphina
          Known ennemies : Samson Bilecik
          First recorded sighting : 546. Byzantine Colchis
          Found and mentored by Seraphina

          Before killing Selma Kojic in 1571, a woman who yearned pemanent death, Kismet Necdet fought and killed Zamphyra of Lazica in 1527, a woman who was the opposite of Selma : she had a positive outlook on Immortality, she was a woman freed from the horros of botched childbirth, indentured servitude in the bonds of marriage, didn’t have to anwer anybody but herself and was free to go where she pleased for however log she kept her head on her shoulders. For one thousand years she thrived in the Game, killed when forced to but enjoying the fight and the power of the Quickening. Seraphina taught her to be strong and to face whatever challenge she would meet and God knows she faced many. As a matter of fact, she faced more rough seas than calm ones in a manner of speaking, but she accepted it as part of Immortal life, a better fate than most mortal women who died before reaching twenty of age. Speaking of fate, Kismet whose name means fate, came to her during the Croatian-Ottoman 100-year war and she enthusiastically accepted his challenge.Kismet knew he was facing oen of the bravest, fiercest warrior women fo the Balkans and to him, it was an honor to kill or be killed by her. He gave her the fight she deserved, full of honor, bravado and righteousness. In the ned, Kismet prevailed and took her head. Her body was left on the battlefield, to be buried with due honors by her comrades in arms who saluted the passing of their own Gothic half-goddess who protected them from the Ottomans.

          Selma Kojic
          Known aliases : Selma Marjanovic
          Notable characteristics : Self-inflicted scars on
          forearms, predating First Death
          Weapon : Ottoman cavalry saber, discarded

          Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
          Date : 1739
          Place : Sarajevo
          Victor : Kismet Necdet
          Watcher : Malika Suvic

          Background
          Original cultural affiliation : Bosnian Muslim
          Born : 1443; Kingdom of Bosnia
          First death : 1463, During conquest of Bosnia by
          Ottoman Empire
          First teacher : Ahmet Dede, Saint-Fool of Islam
          Known associates : Evliya Celebi
          Known past associates : Ahmet Dede
          First recorded sighting : 1463. Kingdom of Bosnia
          Found and mentored by Ahmet Dede who taught
          her the Quran and converted her to Islam

          Selma Kojic inflicted those scars on herself, to feel something after all the years of rape and incest she suffered at the hands of her father and three brothers, her own mother silencing her and keeping the secret within their family in the Kingdom of Bosnia.
          Then the Ottomans conquered Bosnia and put Selma’s village to the sword after raping the girls and women, including Selma. Selma didn’t care about being raped and the Ottoman sword that sliced her throat seemed like a merciful release from years of pain.
          When she woke up, surrounded by death, she felt apalled that death didn’t take her so she left her village, now charred ruins, in search for death, killing herself time and time again until she met up with Ahmet Dede, an Ottoman Immortal who taught her the secret of her new existence. For once, here was a man who didn’t try to molest her, but it took time for her to trust him. She accepted his lessons and when she felt she had learnt enough, left her teacher, in search for Immortal men (especially molesters) to kill. The Game gave a meaning to her life and soon her reputation as a neveraging killer of Ottoman soldiers crossed the borders of Bosnia and reached the ears of Immortal Kismet Necdet, a hunter of powerful Immortal women.
          Necdet hunted her down and found her. War and the Game were what gave meaning to Selma’s immortality, hunting Immortals was what gave meaning to Necdet’s life. Selma coveted the sword with its name on it and Necdet was the one who, finally after nearly three hundred years of challenges, gave her oblivion and eternal peace.

          Date : 1798 Battle of the Pyramids, part of the
          Napoleonic Campaign in Egypt
          Place : Embabeh, outskirts of Cairo
          Victor : N.A
          Watcher : Research, Northern Africa

          Background
          Original cultural affiliation : Mamluk, Oghuz Turk
          Born : 1405; Mamluk Sultanate of Cairo, Egypt
          First death : 1425; Warrior-slave, in mission
          purging pirate ships infesting Egyptian coastline
          First teacher : Ishaq Ibn Jhanda
          Know associates : Ankhanaten Rey, Farah Ibn Said
          Known past associates : Ishaq Ibn Jhanda, Din Ali
          First recorded sighting : 1425. Thebes, Egypt
          Trained by Ishaq ibn Jhanda, twice harder on
          account of her being ‘but a woman’

          At the Battle of the Pyramids during Napoleon Egypt campaign, the Corsican Ogre exhorted his troops, saying, "Forward! Remember that from those monuments yonder 40 centuries look down upon you." Seraphina, nearly 2.000 years old and a former gladiatrix in Rome, heard him well as did her protegé, pre-Immortal François Marchette who wouldn't reach his Immortality before the Campaign of Russia in 1812. Seraphina fought well at the Pyramids and faced an Immortal enlisted among the Mamelukes of the Ottoman Empires, warrior-woman Mihrimah Pamuk whom Seraphina felt she awas a kindred spirit, a soul sister she was forced to face as her ennemy. The Roman's gladiatorial skills prevailed but she chose to spare her opponent, and not just because there were mortals nearby : she hoped for a more friendly reunion someday, one where they wouldn't face the world as ennemies but as comrades... friends or maybe more.
          It doesn't read as very professional or Game-like from Seraphina's part, but this is a woman driven as much by sexual needs and wish for companionship than she is driven by Immortals' motto, There Can Be Only One.

          Zananzash of Sam’al

          Known aliases : Zebediah of Jerash

          evidences of a Quickening
          Watcher : Research, Ancient Immortals of the
          Middle East

          Background
          Original cultural affiliation : Neo-Hittite
          Born : 1200 BC; Kingdom of Sam’al, Hittite Empire
          First death : 1180 BC; Killed during collapse of
          the Hitttte Empire
          First teacher : Esarhaddon of Hattusa
          Known past associates : Esarhaddon of Hattusa
          Known ennemies : Shamsi-Adad, Xanthia of
          Melitus, Achilles of Troy
          First recorded sighting : N.A. Mentioned in the
          12th Century BC Chronicles as a disciple of
          Esarhaddon, possibly killed by the Four Hosemen

          Zananzash body was found beheaded by his Watcher, evidences of a Quickening all around with his cannabis fields burnt to the grounds by the powerful Quickening signalling his passing. Several suspects come to mind like Silas and Shamsi-Adad of Assyria, but we have no concluqsive proof they ever challenged Zanazash. The neo-Hittite Immortal was the first drug-dealer/pusher of the Immortal world, prescibing recreative drugs to Immortals in need of means to sustain the courage and passion they needed in the Game. Even virtous Aganesthos of Tiryns wasn’t above asking “special medication” from him. Zananzash made several ennemies, like Rebecca and Achilles of Troy who hated seeing past friends and allies poison themselves with magic mushrooms and opium sold by the Hittite Immortal, so it is likely a benevolent Immortal decided to dish out justice to bring equilibrium to the Game.
          The Quickening which destroyed Zananzash’s fields was a favor to the Immortals community. Unfortunately, Immortals and mortals learnt from him over the centuries and his legacy spread over the world, poisoning today’s youth.

          • Another great group of chronicles. my friend. I really enjoyed the update on Rhiannon Teague and Frances Drummond reflecting on their time in the SOE. Especially poignant since i just recently watched a program on the wartime activities of the SOE! Lol

            As for the Sacred Order; all the Masters, the Archivist and the Overseer of the Scriptorium will be new Immortals. However, I've been considering that the Pathfinders and Sentinels could be missing Immortals recruited into the Order and converted to their noble cause.

            Could you help by suggesting six Immortals from the missing roster?

            The Pathfinders will be peace-loving Immortals whose job would be to seek out ancient scrolls, manuscripts and artefacts, recovering them from archaeological sites, from thieves or old ruins.

            The Sentinels will be Immortal warriors given a new purpose; protecting their assigned Pathfinder. They will avoid contact with other Immortals where possible, fighting only in defence of themselves or their Pathfinder.

            These Immortals would have been recruited before or during the Middle Ages.

            Cheers

            • Apollo, here is a list of potential Pathfinders and Sentinels, Immortals likely to work in Pathfinder/Sentinel duos.
              Cheers !

              First death : Undetermined
              First teacher : Undetermined
              Known associates : Jesus of Nazareth, Lazarus,
              the Three Nephites
              First recorded sighting : 100 Ephesus, Anatolia
              Martyrised by the Romans, encounter with
              Dyonisius, confirmed to him the actual immortality
              of Jesus of Nazareth

              According to Middle Eastern Chronicles there were a fair number people who were attributed physical immortality by Jesus of Nazareth prior to his crucifixion and while most of those stories are apocryphal, i.e coming from too many different sources to be verifiable, the existence of Jesus of Nazareth has indeed be verified as well as the story of the Wandering Jew, aka Ahasuerus, already several centuries old and the story of Lazarus' resurrection cluing us on the origins of the Immortal Lucius Sharp claiming the identity of the original disciple of Christ.
              The existence of Casca Longinus is unverifiable. In theory he may well have been Cassius Marius, aka Brother Paul, the only known Immortal centurion to have converted to Christianity, thus joining the origin story of the original Saint Longinus. Paul never spoke of his life around the time of Christ’s resurrection but if indeed he pierced the flank of Christ this could have created the conditions to his conversion to Christian religion.
              The stories of John the Apostle and the Three Nephrites are to be taken with a grain of salt. All we know so far is that Jesus lives in Jerusalem and Lazarus was living in New Mexico prior to his disapperarance in 1978. The man claiming to be the Wandering Jew was killed by a disciple of his, a youngish immortal with the habit of murdering his teachers.
              John the Apostle, or the man claiming to be him was met by Dyonisos the Aerropagite in Epesus circa 100 AD.
              The Three Nephites met Cassandra in 33, the year of Jesus' crucifiction, they spread the word of Christ for three hundred years before their disappearance in 301 in Armenia

              other disciple, Samira Hamid

              Xanthia once told me about her lover Parthenia of Udyana during our reunion in Normandy in 950. There was her student, Amanda, a wild little hellion who was jealous of my relationship with her mistress. When I asked Xanthia if she and Amanda had an intimate relationship she answered they didn’t.That was a student/teacher relationship, akin to an older aunt and her niece. To which I retorted that “funny aunts” had existed since the dawn of mankind. Xanthia had a light laugh but swore she hadn’t been involved in any serious lesbian relationship since her days in the Punjab by the 2nd century BC. At this time she reuntied with Samira, a former disciple, and she did the mistake of accepting her as lover. When she took a new student from the Indo-Grek kingdom, the three women became involved in a risqué ménage à trois which led slowly to jealousy from the insecure Parthenia. The relationship ended badly and Xanthia took an oath to never mix romance with her work as a teacher again. The last time she heard of Parhenia she was in the Punjab when the Indo-Greek kingdom dissolved itself.

              Encounter with Selim Ubadah, told him stories of
              long-gone Immortals from Mesopotamia

              In 1900 Immortal Aurel Stein (the Immortal Indiana Jones) uncovered the city of Khotan,capital city of the Kingdom of Khotan, buried under centuries of sand. Stein had been inspired in his research by the writings of fellow immortal Hsien-Tsiang who had travelled through Central Asian and along the Silk Road where he was met by an ancient woman by name of Amestris.
              Amestris hailed from the Kingdom of Khotan and had reinvented herself as a wife of Mahomet in the Mecca under the name of Safiya bint Ho-Yay where she met Immortal Selim Ubadah. Ubadah gave Amestris the incentive for telling fantasy stories of ancient Immortals, wizards, and adventurers, thus making her the Immortals’ immortal chronicler.
              Intrigued by the stories of Hsien-Tsaiang, Stein decided to research the existence of the strange Amistris and of her city when he was sixteen years from achievign Immortality during an expedition to Central Asia.
              The other source of inspiration to Stein was the work of the Swedish explorer and geographer, Sven Hedin, who had done extensive, detailed mapping of large parts of Central Asia, including the routes of the famous Silk Road. Central Asia was an area that theretofore had not been mapped in great detail.
              Aurel Stein eventually found the city of Khotan through a combination of luck and observation of how the site was irrigated for centuries with water that had been redirected via canals from the nearby rivers, including the Kara-kash River. Stein's deduction was that the ruins of the city laid under the village of Hetian/ Yotkan.
              During his diggings, he found tablets that described a woman of great beauty and wisdom, named Amestris, confirmign the existence of the woman and her origins as the fabled Scheherazade from the 1001 Nights, or more accurately, Schahrazad, a captive/consort of Immortal Hassan-ii-Sabah.

              Disciple of Taher ibn Hamed and Jamal Laboudni

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

              Truly an odd character that one, a once-hermaphrodite who grew old with time and only reached his immortality nearlty the end of his mortal life on Earth. Mentored by Cassandra who taught the use of the voice to help and elederly infirm to survive in the Game, which he did for at least five hundred years before disapearing in the 8th century BC. He had seldom contazcts with Immortals, first with Cassandra, later with the fabled Odysseus, then with Methos and his student Ekaterini; he was rumored to have fooled the Kurgan himself, using the giant’s boorishness against himself and to have bedded Kellistra herself – however unlikely that is. The Lady of Lesbos once mentoned him as a charming companion and a perfect match to her ageing physique.

              Finally extensive search in the chronicles of Paul Karros have allowed to identify him at the teacher of Immortal Nader Salam in 725 as well as the unidentified Immortal who got in a fight with Selim Ubadah in 725 in Egypt. Paul Karros was leading a revolution as he always did, this time leading rebellion of Copts (Christian Egyptians) against opressive taxation by Arab rulers. Nader Salam became his disciple and went missing two hundred years later when he was leading a peasant rebellion against the Fatimids who ruled Egypt I nthe 10th century. Where Karros led revolutions for the sake of warrign against opressors, Nader was more idealistic, wantign the happiness of his people and dreamng for the day all opression would cease in Egypt. A hopeless dream, but still he fought on bravely : against the Arabs, the Fatimids but also against aggressive players of the Game coming after his head. If he is still active to this day, there is no doubt he is a fervent militant for the right of opressed Copts in Egypt and that he participated in the 2011 Arab Spring.

              I would like to make matters clear where the chronicle of Yau Chouan Chou is concerned: he wasn’t the mysoginist one would pretend him to be, rather a man from his time who had a hard time beliving women could be the equals of women on the field of battle. And yet, he was always proven wrong with the likes of Mei-Li Choe or May-Ling She, his last known student. Mei-li was the mistress of kung-fu of the 5th century BC in China and she is the one who taught her art to Master Yau who later passed those skills on May-Ling Shen who herself gave a lesson in humility to the boorish Highlander called Duncan MacLeod.
              I knew Mei-li and believe me this woman was a kicker ! I even saw her best techniques used in combat by Golden Swallow in the Shaw Brothers productions. And oddly enough, the Godlen Swallow was herself azn Immortal. Life has an odd way of moving in circles.

              I remember racing against Irene at the time of the earthquake, I bet her fifty gold coins that I would win on the fourth and she agreed o it because she liked placing bets. To her, playing the Game already was placing a bet so she didn’t mind the gold coins. It’s not like a Quickening was going to be lost.
              The crowd cheered as we ran around the colyseum and then the ground started moving, thousands of people screamed and I don’t remember quite clearly what happed, I know we ran for safety while everything started crumbling. We must have been trampled in the stampede. I was dug up from a pile of rubbles, called miraculous because I survived unscathed. I looked after Irene but could find no trace of her. I am sure she survived the earthquake, at least I belive so because if she had lost her head, I would have received her Quickening and I would feel her presence in me. I she is out there somwhere, I hope we can resume our race. I wonder how many gold coins she would ask this time.

              I am the fly on the wall who gave the incentive to King Cyrus to constitute his army of immortal warriors, a cadre of powerful combatants instantly replaced after one falls on the field of battle, naming them immortals was a joke from my part. Interestingly enough, history kept my joke for historians to record as a fact of life. Oh I knew King Cyrus well, I knew many kings and emperors and always reminded them they were all naked under their clothing and needed good protection. The actual immortal who led the battalion was another disciple of mine, Pantea Artheshbod and she also put her mark on the history of mankind. I even wrote a page on the net dedicated to her (not on wiki, though, too amateurish to my tastes). Pantea taught to King Cyrus to respect the customs and religions of the lands he
              conquered which taught him to better centralize the power he held on the countries he he had a hold on, and also to respect women ! Well recognized for his achievements in human rights, politics, and military strategy, as well as his influence on both Eastern and Western civilizations according to the wiki page, ha ! He has to thank Cleophon of Athens and myself for that, we taught him well.
              A hot-blooded woman Pantea, a woman who flexes her brain as much as her muscles. Gone missing in the 7th century and I hope still active. I miss hour training sessions and the perfume on her body on morning.

              First recorded sighting : 140 BC Bactria. Disciple of
              Pantea Arteshbod, also her soul-siser

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

              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.

                Hope these meet with your approval! Lol

                Also i need some suggestions from the missing roster for one more Immortal to fill the role of the Order's Cleaner, known as The Apostate. He/she is responsible for protecting the secret of the Order's existence. Anyone, Immortal or mortal, who gets close to knowing it exists or where it is, he/she eliminates the threat. The Apostate is suspected in the deaths of hundreds of mortals, at least six Immortals who's killer was never identified, and at least a dozen Watchers over the centuries. Although not evil, The Apostate is a cold blooded killer absolutely devoted to the Order and willing to do whatever he/she has to to ensure its continued existence.

                Cheers

                • I am okay with your choice, but do the new stats for the Pathfinders and Sentinels mean the Watchers are aware of who they work for and what their occupation is exactly ?
                  As for the Apostate... let me think about it!

                    Yes. As was mentioned in the description for the Order, one of the Watchers Joe Dawson sent to investigate, returned twenty years later. As of now, the Watchers have become aware of the Sacred Order. I have some reports to post from the Watcher to Joe, detailing his experience which i'll post as i also post the chronicles for the Masters.

                    Of course, all of this means the Watchers will have to find a way to keep this knowledge compartmentalised, because if word gets out that the Order has been compromised, then The Apostate will be activated (if he/she doesn't already know about the Watcher's escape!).

                    More to come!

                    Cheers

                    • Okay Apololo, I updated the stats and I am happy to see how this works well, the combined Patheinder/Sentinels team looks great on the roster. I wonder how they work together, al of them, how they get on. Here are pictures if found, actors for each Immortal.


                      From left to right :
                      Nader Salam : Arieh Elmaleh, French-Moroccan actor
                      John the Apostle : Noah Wyle, from E.R, Jewish-American
                      Irene of Antioch : Tuvana Turkay, Turkish actress
                      Parthenia : Neetu Chandra, Hindu actress with light complexion, fit for a Greek-Indian Immortal
                      Amestris of Khotan : Khatereh Asadi, Iranian actress
                      Mei-li Choe : Zhang Ziyi from movie house of flying daggers

                        Corinth War of 395-387 BC, Inconclusive fight
                        against Cleophon of Athens

                        The immortal naming himself Kotys who fought Katherine in Samothrace, while she was searching for her roots, bore the hallmarks of ancient origins and was a past ennemy of the legendary Cleophon of Athens; he fought Katherine with ferocity and gusto, showing he wasn't afraid of a warrior-woman such as Katherine. Eventually he won the duel, but instead of killing the Samothracian woman he helped her to her feet and called her a true warrior, worthy of being ranked among the best fighters in the Game.
                        Kotys was a goddess worshipped with much revelry by Thracian tribes such as the Edonians in the festival Cotyttia. According to Greek sources her priests were called baptes or "washers" because their pre-worship purification rites involved bathing. Her worship included midnight orgies. Her name is believed to have meant "war, slaughter".
                        Katherine befriended Kotys who taught her not to just fight in the Game but also to savor life : to appreciate the beauty of the sunset in the morning, to marvel at the birth of a young child, to savor rare food and good wine, and to recover from the trauma she suffered in 256 after the massacre of her two companions and the violations she suffered from Dacian soldiers.
                        After two years, the two friends parted ways, Katherine became a changed person : not just a warrior, she would make a difference in the world of immortality as a teacher and bringer of life. It is thanks to the conversations between the two lovers we learnt that Koty’s teacher was a man once called Metopholus, a former identity of the elusive Methos. Kotys the Hunter travelled around Greece, changing his name to 'Nimrod', after the legendary hunter and former companion of Theseus; he fought often and disappeared in the Pelopponese around 854, believed to have been killed by the Roman headhunter Lucius Oranius Capito. British Watchers suggest he may have survived his encounter with Capito.

                        Challenged and beheaded General Holophernes
                        during siege of Bethulia, the ensuing Quikcening
                        frightened Holophernes troops

                        A notable "villain" of the Bronze Age, Holofernes has made his mark on history as the victim of the fabled Judith who decapitated him with help from her handmaiden, a scene depicted in paintings countless of times, including a famous one by Artemissia Gentileschi, aka Immortal Artemissia of Helicarnassos.. Holofernes knew the true sense of terror and made a point of terrorizing and enslaving the populations of the countries and kingdoms he conquered, thus making his teacher very proud. His teacher was Kronos, my brother, thus making of Holofernes my nephew by association.
                        Well, Holofernes, Kronos and I shared one trait of character : a definite weakness for women. This weakness allowed Cassandra to "kill" Kronos and escape from him (I remember she nearly castrated him with her own teeth) and Judith of Bethulia to reach him with her handmaiden (who may have been Elishevah of Samaria, her teacher) and decapitated him with a knife. His muffled screams for help were mistaken for orgiastic screams and when his body was found, it was too late : Judith and her friend had vanished like a puff of smoke.

                        I really get a kick at writing those entries for the Watcher's chronicles because it allows me to disclose the fates of lesser-known Immortals of the Bronze Age and also to make my presence known as the sole contemporary Immortal Watcher. I said contemporary, guys... Get it ? Yes, it may be childsih, but at my age one can afford to be childish sometimes.

                        First recorded sighting : 335 BC Thebes, Greece
                        During pillage of Thebes by Thracian army,
                        murdered the Thracian captain who raped her
                        Encounter with Deoneces of Sparta

                        According to Plutarch's biography of Alexander the Great, when his forces took Thebes during Alexander's Balkan campaign of 335 BC, Thracian forces pillaged the city, and a captain of the Thracian forces raped an Immortal woman named Timocleia, identified as such by Cleophon of Athens, at this time a commander in the Macedonian cavalry and serving on Alexander's command staff. After raping her, the captain asked if she knew of any hidden money. She told him that she did, and led him into her garden, and told him there was money hidden in her well. When the Thracian captain stooped to look into the well, Timoclea pushed him into the well, and then hurled heavy stones into the well until the captain was dead.
                        Timoclea was seized by the Thracian soldiers and brought before Alexander the Great. She comported herself with great dignity and told Alexander that her brother was Theagenes, last commander of the Theban Sacred Band, who died "for the liberty of Greece" at the Battle of Chaeronea in 338 BC, defeated by Alexander's father Philip of Macedon. Alexander was so impressed with Timocleia that he ordered her and her children released and she was not punished for killing the Thracian captain.
                        Timoclea became Cleophon'slover from 335 to 326 BC and parted ways with him, nt seen by Watchers before 272 BC in Pyrrhus, Sparta, when she lad Spartan warriors alongside Deoneces (Cleophon's disciple) and Kyra of Sparta. The three Immortals fought side by side and also did a luscious menage à trois in the bed between two battles.

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

                        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.

                        Pontus, murdered 20,000 resident Romans.
                        Hunted and killed by Cassandra
                        The earlier chronicles of Cassandra read like a long road of revenge against men abusing and raping women across the world, as if the ancient seer had a score to settle with those who enslave and torture innocent women, maybe a remainder of the constant abuse and torture she suffered at the hands of Methos whern she was a slave of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Case in point, Krillos of Armenia, a general in the army of Persia who came from Armenia Minor and served Mithriades of Pontus, responivble for a massacre of civilians on the sacred Island of Delos in 88 Bc where Cassandra served as the oracle of Delos. For five decades, Cassandra hunted Krillos and finally found him in the Kingdom of Pontus where she challenged him before his men. Krillos had a good laugh, but laughed no more when he held his spilling innards between his hands, defeated in minutes by Cassandra’s savage sword.
                        The Quickening of Krillos was long and powerful. Later research in the Brzone Age chronicles indicate he was birn in the 37th century BC and was a disciple of Oromedon of Urkesh.

                        There isn't really a chronicle for Japeth of Ur, what we know of him are from ancient scrolls depcting his conflict against Gilgamesh at two seperate periods of Mesopotamian history. In 2334 BC, Semitic chieftain Sargon of Akkad's conquest of Sumer and Mesopotamia occured, aided by Japeth who betrayed his king to Sargon of Akkad and paid the ultimate priuce for his betryal when Gilgamesh sought him out, took his head and triggered such a massive Quickening that Sargon died from a heart attack when he was told Gilmaesh was a god who commanded to the natural elements.
                        Oromedon of Urkesh referred to Japeth as his dsiciple at the beginning of the Uruk period of Sumer, placing his birth around 3600 BC.

                        • I really love the actor choices you picked! A great mix of ethnicities that really suit the Immortals. Could use a more recent picture of Zhang Ziyi though to match the others lol

                          I chose Kotys as The Apostate since his age is near enough to that of the Grand Master that they would have crossed paths in their earlier years and a friendship most likely would have been formed such that Kotys would have been the ideal candidate for the Order's cleaner. His ruthlessness would have come from his devotion to the Order's mission and his determination to protect the Immortals who serve it.

                          The updated stats for Kotys:

                          The Apostate

                          Cross-identified as Kotys the Hunter

                          Weapon (s): Customised collapsible broadsword,
                          Glock 17 pistol w/silencer, KAC SR-25 7.62mm

                          • Good choice. Definitely not Charles Herne, then. Got a nice pic for him : Michael Ironside, from Extreme Prejudice, Highlander II (YUCK !) and lots of good SCI-FI movies where he played great villains and shady characters.
                            I hope the new picture for the Chinese Sentinel is to your taste :-)

                            Background
                            Original cultural affiliation : Minoan
                            Born : 35th century BC; Early Minoan Civilisation
                            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.

                            • Yes! Love the new picture! She looks totally badaass. Good choice with Michael Ironside. Incidentally, he's always been one of my favourite actors, who can play both shady characters and good guys with a tough streak. Hated his character in Highlander II though (the entire film, tbh!). Playing The Apostate in this AU will hopefully eradicate the memory of his previous appearance from my memory lol

                              • Apollo, the zones of research work for the Pathfinders are a bit too large for only three Immortals, maybe there should be more Pathfinders and more Sentinels. It would be interesting to have more S/P teams for the Orient, Asian, Middle Eastern and European regions. And especially Africa, a very large continent with a rich, tumultuous history.
                                Also, who are the Pathfinders and Sentinels for the Americas and Oceania ?

                                Glad you like Michael Ironside and the new pic of Mei-Li Choe :-)

                                There is the legend in Eastern Africa about Fire from the Sky, a dark-faced woman of amazing powers who killed an African prince around 400 AD, triggering an earthquake and the biggest lighting inferno to grace the land of Kenya. The woman put such an impression on the Kenyans that they called her Fire from the Sky, the witch who rose from the dead and killed the Prince who put him to death, taking his head and drinking his essence. This folktale clearly describes an immortal, a challenge and a Quickening.
                                Fire from the Sky is recorded as having raised a tribe of twelve children - who started wandering Eastern Africa upon reaching adulthood and all died in wars, all of them bearing the name "Kenyatta" and rising from the dead. We do not know what happened of them. Fire from the Sky raised those children after marrying a local prince, himself an immortal and is said to have kept him aprt from the education of her childen, never letting him approach her daughters. She fought often, led her tribe in war and battles, and often illuminated the Kenyan sky with ligtnings. She is written to have lived six generations before burying her husband and disappearing with her children, thus marking the time of her diseappearance around 520 AD when she fought a battle against the legendary Sekou Nkruma, the warrior who turned into a doctor. Sekou lives to this day, we presume she won the battle, being such a formidable warrior and allowed him to live.

                                  • "This weakness allowed Cassandra to "kill" Kronos and escape from him (I remember she nearly castrated him with her own teeth)" I LOVE this line. So... Fire From The Sky may have really been the mother, and her husband may have been the father of those twelve children, but he didn't know it?

                                    • Well, Fire from the Sky could have faked those pregnancies and pretended her husband was the father of her children ,all foundlings. At least that's what the Watchers believe. In my story Fire from the Sky and her husband are the factual parents of those pre-Immortals : they are of age, i.e old and powerful enough to breed children.

                                    • I like what you've done there with adding a new Pathfinder/Sentinel team. And i like the actresses you've chosen. Especially since I've just recently watched Black Panther lol!

                                      Any suggestions you may have for the Americas would have any team here homebased in South America since most of the oldest civilisations in that part of the world originated there (the Incas, Mayans etc).

                                      BTW Do you have the active and inactive Immortals of West Africa, only i just realised i missed that one out! Thanks in advance...

                                      Cheers

                                      • If you liked the Black Panther movie I recommend reading the Black Panther series by Christopher Priest, quite good to read and fun.
                                        And now (drum roll) the Pathfinder/Sentinel team for Latin America !

                                        Duncan MacLeod, always the womanizer, met Ixcatzin at the Battle of Mexico City and was mesmerized by her intense beauty and charm, the same way he was mesmerized by Rebecca Horne and Amanda in 1536 after he had been subjugated by immortal witch Cassandra in his youth. He develooped an intense passion for the Miztecan beauty who didn’t quite reciprocate : she saw in Duncan MacLeod the Scottish warrior turned hero of the Mexican revolution but also a little boy in search for his roots who scoured the vast world, looking for new identities, for new adventures so he could perform more amazing feats. She told so to the Scot. MacLeod, taken aback, answered that this may be true, but no matter what, he stayed Duncan MacLeod of the Clan MacLeod, player of the Game and lover of mortals.
                                        MacLeod never obsessed over Ixcatzin and wasn’t a suspect when her Watcher reported her disappearance, MacLeod being away with Paul Karros fighting federal troops, and they were the only three immortals recorded present in Mexico City at that time. A great woman who supported the independence of Mexico and cordially despised Paul Karros, whom she saw as a revolutions-profiteer and opportuniçst who sacrificed mortal lives like pawns on a chessboard, and she told so to the Thracian immortal who strongly disagreed, but not to the extant of wanting to take her head.

                                        Pursued by Ottavio Consone, falling madly in love
                                        with her, to the point of murdering her suitor

                                        Mercedes the Gypsy was one of those immortal women who are barely bleeps on Watcher scope, appearing from time to time in our chronicles, and are never heard from again until the moment when they manifest. She first appeared as a disicple of the eluvie Kellistra, known in the 15th century as Kudra Ivanova, Gypsy woman, and was seen embarking on Christopher Colombus’ Pinta ship sailing for the Americas. Herself and two gypsy men. She was a well-known consort of Colombus until her confrontation against Spaniard Javier Valdez in 1538, a conflict that led to her disappearance. She re-appeared in 1820 in Alicante, being courted by Ottavio Consone, answering to his amourous challenges with her sword, besting the disiple of Ramirez, only to let him live, humiliating him in public.

                                        Note : she is the youngest Sentinel but her credentials as a disciple of Kellistra were enough for the Sacred Order I suppose.

                                            Encounter with Catherine Beckett

                                            The expedition led by Professor Koriand in 1965 sought the lost city of Z in the Matto Grosso and disappeared, never to be seen again. This pack of immortals was made of pacific souls, led by a passion for discovery and adventures:
                                            Teophile Koriand was mentored by Carmen Morales, a Mayan immortal who changed forever his outlook on the Precolumbian world, proving to him that Europeans and set foot on Latin America centuries before Colombus came to the Americas.
                                            Cypriano of Ghent was challenging the rules of the mortal world before the taste of adventure took him beyond the seas, already involved in a revolution in pre-immortal life, involved in countless revolutions and having gained the ennemity of Paul Karros - Cypriano was a true beliver and idealist, while Karros is an opportunist.
                                            Mark Falconer was as gifted in digging up old ruins as he was in decyphering old texts, wether in India or on the African continent, and in the Game smartly used a whip to disarm his opponents before killing them - although not permanently.
                                            Harrison Goldberg is known for having suffered one of the most unique and unpleasant First Deaths in immortals history, but his teacher was a hot-blooded woman who turned his imperialist, mysogynist views of the world around, forever altering his perception of the negros race. He was never the same after Maple left him, and sought her out as much as he sought to dig up buried old cities.
                                            Jack Hermandez, the film-maker of the group, cynic, opportunist, treasure hunter seeking to line his pockets so his film production empire could grow. He sought to become richer than any of the 1960's Hollywood films moguls.
                                            Eleanor Holland, the only woman of the group, serving as assistant secretary to Koriand, playing the shy mouse, who astonished her male counterparts when she faced a a tribe of Amazonian headhunters by single-handedly freeing her captive collagues before dispatching the Amazonians on her own. A resourceful woman who was once mentored by a black woman, discovering of negro people could be as clever as white people, setting her on a course to promote equality of races during the civil rights movement of the 1960's in America.
                                            Whatever happened to this group is unknown to us.

                                              Sought tutoring from Yau Chouan Chou

                                              Watcher Research has proven conclusive for several Immortals once killed by Mei-Li Choe in the first ten centuries of her life, prior to her engagement in the Order of Sacred Knowlesge as bodyguard of Pathfinder Amestrtis of Khotan. The first Chronicle of such Immortals we uncovered is of Ming Hua Kë, a rival fo Mei-Li in the affectiosn and tutelage of their common teacher, Yau Chouan Chou, also famous for having turored the legendary May-Ling Shen.
                                              A victim of slavery and rape, Ming sworre to never be enslaved again and became a vengeful sabre across Mainland China until she sought private tutoring from Yau Choua Chou. Unfortuately for her, she had a dark side in her nature : she killed the men she seduced and bedded, seeing them as molesters, sparing the Immortal known as Broken Blade, a diminushed Immortal man who lost his virility long ago. A psychotic by modern standards, she threatened the life of Yau Choucan Chou and was dispatched by Mei-Li Choe after an infamous duel which went down in history as “the fiery battle of the Crane and the Tigress”.

                                              As fate will have it, Mei-Li Choe didn’t wait long before facing another Immortal in the decade she followed Monk Faxian as his bodyguard, this time facign another player of the Game in Sri Lanka, a medical doctor in Sri Lanka’s first known hospital, built in the 5th century. Vithanage was a disciple of Cassius Polonius and witnessed the murder of Emperor Caligula in 41 AD, only to be mentored by the Roman praetorian guard. Cassius taught the diminutive Asian to be cunning, to use any means at his disposal to survive in the Game and apparently Vithanage did very well in four hundred years, souring most of Southern Asia, playing the Game, learning new crafts and enjoying the Game immensely. When Mei-Li Choe took him out, he was already a powerful man but he did one mistake : underestimating an Immortal woman. His mistake proved fatal.

                                              No one knows who his First Teacher was or who trained him later on, we only know that he was one of the earlier recorded Immortals of Japan and that he played the Game. Scrolls for the 5th century in Japan report that an Immortal man called Sotatsu was an envoy to the Court of King of Wa and that while respectuous to everyone, he was on the lookout for any Immortal he could find, and that Immortal happened to be Mei-Li Choe at this time serving Emperor Wen of Liu Song as his concubine and bodyguard agaisnt any threat from Mailand China or from foreign countries. The Quickenign impressed the Emperor deeply, who saw in his lover a formauidable woman able to fitht like a man and to master thunder and lightnings like a goddess.

                                              What was it about Mei-Li Choe that made her lure one headhunter after another, wherever she went ? Some Immortals truily seem doomed to play the Game time and time again, never to know peace but Mei-Li Choe acepted any challenge gracefully and fought with a passion and vigor that was paralleled by few women of her kind. She took any challenge, dutifully xserved and protected hte men she was in charge of watching over and this is why she may have been chosen as Sentinel by the Order of the Sacred Knowledge. In 717 Mei-Li Choe was known at the Tang Dynasty court as a diminutive guard/mercenary of undetermined gender who stood by the Emperor's side and never left him. Protecting his family day and night.No man was safe from her blade and there were few men or women who dared raise theri voice when adressing her. She had truly formidable weapons. When Konerak Sasorith raped one of the Emperor's concubines, Mei-Li Choe came after him like a panther trailing its prey and silently dispatched him, his custom broadsword offered as a gift to the offended Emperor whose mistress had been brutalized and dishionored.

                                              The two Mamluke soldiers found to have been a husband and wife team for three hundred years, Maro Atef and Ehsan Ibn Fauzi, have been killed in 1387 in Sivas, a region of Anatolia taken over by the Mamluk Sultanate under the protection of Irene of Antioch, one of the Sentinels of the Sacred Order. It has been discovered that Irene was protecting Immortal Pathfinder Parthenia of Udyana who was doing research to find ancient scrolls describing the final days of the Trojan War, in which several Immortals were involved (ref. Achilles of Troy Chronicle). During Sivas takeover by the Ottomans, Ehsan and Maro threatened the life of Udyana, only to find themselves slaughtered by Irene and her superior sword skills.

                                              Inconclusive fight against Sunda Kastagir

                                              Anansi was an urban legend from way back on the African roster of Immortals, a player of the Game once mentored by healer Sekou Nkruma, who killed Immortals indiscriminately, playing the Game, like a spider weaving her web, faceless and rumored to be a freak of nature born with four arms;, each arms carrying a different sword, saber or cutlass, picked from a fallen opponent. For centuries she was known as a trickster, a devilish creatures seducing men out of their wits before the final kill and who could get away from any perilous situation thanks to the power of her mind. No one knew exactly what Anansi looked like : a man, a woman, a child-like creature or an elderly woman.
                                              She was described as a roving monster, a clever creature who outlived hundreds of powerful Immortals. For eight hundred years frightening tales were told about her when the Black Continent still was largely unknown and unexplored until finally it was Sunda Kastagir who confronted her in 1390 and discoverred her for what she was : a teenaged girl, a woman actually, wielding a custom broadsword she must have forged herself and who proved to be a skilled fighter as well as a remorseless killer.
                                              The fight ended with Kastagir winning and seducing the woman who allowed him, a man, to bed her, before leaving his company. She must have had an intense sexual charisma to be able to bed an experienced player like Kastagir, but this is a most formidable woman, one never knows how she will react when facing an Immortal : will she kill him ? Seduce him ? Let him live ? So far, Sister Mary Bethel, Apolo Obote and Ekundayo are the only other three Immortals she allowed in her bed, be they villains, heroes or neutral in the Game. A very strange woman indeed.

                                              The Nigerien Armed Forces led by Djibo Bakary in 2008 were involved from 2007 to 2009 in an insurgency in the north of the country, labeled the Second Tuareg Rebellion. A previously unknown group, the Mouvement des Nigeriens pour la Justice (MNJ), emerged in February 2007. The predominantly Tuareg group has issued a number of demands, mainly related to development in the north. It has attacked military and other facilities and laid landmines in the north. The resulting insecurity has devastated Niger's tourist industry and deterred investment in mining and oil. The government has labeled the MNJ criminals and traffickers, and refuses to negotiate with the group until it disarms. As of July 2008, some 100 to 160 Nigerien troops have been killed in the ongoing conflict.

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

The man was finally cornered and faced the teenaged Immortal who wasn’t afraid to fight a 6 feet tall killer armed to the teeth. The fight was a furious one, like a mongoose fighting a royal cobra and Ikechukwu through a combination of luck and skills prevailed. The Quickening he savored solidified his unquestioned leadership of the Lagos street youths who know look at Ike in awe, viewing him like a kind of super-hero.

                                              Nigeria. During massacre of her village by slavers,

                                              As opposed to Alice Lenshina who will use her sexual power to defeat Immortal men in the Game, Orisa Kagame uses hunting skills and a keen swordarm in the Game, keeping in practice by playing regularly and training often. She keeps love and sexual matters to her mortal lovers and to the few Immortal men and women she truly loves, giving her body to those few she trusts with her intimacy. This is a shrinking violet hiding behing the wall of a tough super-woman fighting the forces of darkness in Nigeria. Few men and women in the Game have seen the real woman that she is and those who challenged her in the Game are now six feet under, their Quickenings part of Orisa.
                                              This is a woman who will never let anyone enslave her again or threaten the lives of her clan, as she made the sad experience the day she was reborn, Immortal. When she finally took out Dimej Yar’adua, she breathed a sigh of relief, though her battle never ends. Slavers, child-traffickers, assassins, headhunters, are all part of the darkness in her heart, but she sees the light surrounded by her mortal family, her freidns and lovers, and for them, she would do everything to survive the Game and the final Gathering, so she could protect her tribe until the end of time.

Aralkhan communicated to him his awe and fear of the Game, his belief that the strong must kill the weak so that the immortal world may be strong, so that himself may be strong.
                                              Sghairt is no coward. He lives in fear and awe of the Game, of immortality, but that does not prevent him from challenging the best ones, the strongest of his kind, because all of them have weaknesses. From his experiences as a former lion-hunter, he knows how the sting of a wasp can weaken the defences of a mighty lion, so Sghair uses not only his strenght but also his mind, something he has been imparting on his protégé and adopted daughter Bolanile Dallo, child Immortal.

                                              The Chronicle of Mossane Nkobe

                                              There is a legend in a tiny village of Senegal, about a bride who became the third wife of the village's chief, five
                                              hundred years ago. The chief's first wife became jealous of the young girl and had her poisoned. It is also told the bride came back from the dead and scared the first wife so much that she died. This legend is based on the story of Mossane Gasira Nkobe who re-awakened, an immortal. Mossane was cast out from her village, but not put to death since her husband had really loved her.
                                              She wandered for days until she could reach the village she originated from, unfortunately word had reach the place that her ghost was now haunting the area and she had to flee again. She was then pursued by the immortal Assane Ouadraogo who thought her an easy kill; Sunda Kastagir proved him wrong when he took his head and taught the ways of the Game to the young immortal girl.

                                              Mossane became an angel of vengeance punishing mortals and immortals who hurt the innocent, making a name for herself though the centuries: by the end of the 17th century she had become one of the best assassins on the continent; by the end of the 19th century she had spread tales of terror in the western world about a mysterious black woman who had more lives than seven cats. And when the 20th century reached its end, she became one of the snake-named immortal members of the Headhunting Immortals Serpent Squad.

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

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

                                              - Abeni Kadewale : whose name means "we asked for her, and, behold, we got her" hails from the Yoruba people, a culture set in Nigeria and colonized by the British in 1901. A victim of British soldiers, Abeni took brutal revenge on her tormentors after Gasira welcomed the young woman from the land of the dead and taught her of the Game and immortality. She is the oldest of the squad, the wisest and the most violent, mirroring her teacher in that matter. She calls herself "Forest Cobra".

                                              - Keturah Lamar : When Gasira met Keturah twenty years ago, she was living from her body in a vermin-infested bordello. Gasira violently showed the Bordello manager his own pancreas and liver before putting him to the sword and ridding Abidjan from one of its most sinster inhabitants. Then she freed the women living there and took Keturah in. Keturah doesn't care about people, other than the Water-Snakes and their mistress. Gasira gave Keturaha self-confidence and turned her into a skilled assassin. Among the Snakes, Keturah is "Green Mamba".

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

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

                                              - Sefu Uhura : born Bantu in the 1920's, his name means "sword" in Swahili. He chose the name "Night Adder" for himself and is a calmer snake than Gasira's other students. A night adder is the viper that brought immortality to him, in an unfortunate accident as he was visiting a girl from his hometown during the night. When he came back from the dead, he was cast out, only to be adopted by the village's healer, Gasira herself. A sweet child at fifteen, Sefu had to grow up quickly to survive

                                              Idriss Bahel al-Bliss got his first slave when he was 7, that was one thousand years ago. Today, he is one of Mauritania's leading abolitionists, trying to free men, women and children from indentured servitude in a country were slavery was abolished only recently, in 2007. Idriss had a change of heart when he saw a family of a teenaged mother and her seven children beign treated like cattle, and this my have been the straw that broke the camel's back as it happened to Kage in 1975 when he saw the pitiful remains of children slaughtered liek cattle by the Khmer Rouges.
                                              Idriss freed all his slaves and has been working hard for the past seven years. His fight got him in prison, got him beaten, got hims threatened. But he won't give up. He wants to give children of Mauritius a future so he can atone for the terrible sins from his past.

                                              Mama Adorn is a witch, a mother, a healer. She is the keeper of a Holy Spring and it is here to cure Immortals tainted by the lefe-essence of evil Immortals, those so cruel that they can turn a good man into a demon. Mama Adorn has cured five Immortals thaty we know of, brought chained kicking and screaming by other Immortals sound of mind. Mama Adorn welcomes them all, does not judge. She takes them to the cave beneath the fall and even deeper is the spring. The Immortal is unchained and left to his own demons. It takes days to cure an Immortal. But when he gets out, he is a changed person. Not longer infected by the Dark Quickening, sane. There are many places in Africa and aroudn the world that help Immortals back to their feet; once a rare occurence, the Dark Quickening has become more frequent in the last forty years, beign passed from one Immortal to another, like a STD of some kind. A perversion of nature threatening the balance of the Game.

A Beijing businessman, he plays games on the board of trustees, his sharpest weapon is his tongue and his knoack at using Laws as help in the world of banking and financing. The remnants of the People’s Protectorate put pressure on him to recruit him in their covenant, a good position for him they said, with links to government officials, but Fu doesn’t care. He warned them to stay clear from his because he may be retired from the Game, but his Quing dynasty saber is still sharp and deadly in his hand.

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

                                              • Thanks for posting the West African Immortals, my friend. Once again, much appreciated,

                                                Great work fleshing out the chronicle of Mei-li Choe before she became a Sentinel, i really loved her story. And i adored your account of two kills by Irene Antioch while serving as a Sentinel in the Order.

                                                Meanwhile, here's a little taster for the Sacred Order:

                                                Following further research by Special Projects, we can now affirm that Pathfinder Parthenia of Udyana and her Sentinel protector Irene of Antioch were present at the Siege of Constantinople in 717-718 as Parthenia rescued hundreds of ancient scrolls before the Byzantine Emperor Leo III the Isaurian had 300,000 books burned.

                                                Watcher Research, Order of the Sacred Knowledge

                                                During the razing of Carthage by the Romans, it is now our firm belief that Sacred Order founder and Grand Master of Books, Hapuseneb and his student and protector Keresher (who would become Master of the Black Books) preserved hundreds of valuable tablets pre-dating early Egyptian civilisation during the 17-day fire of 146 BC.

                                                Hapuseneb and Keresher were also present in China in 213 BC during the book burning ordered by the emperor Tsun Shi Hwang-ti. It was during this period that Master of the Books of the East, Moy Chi-ju was mentored by Hapuseneb.

                                                During the destruction of the Great Library of Alexandria during the Roman civil war in 48 BC, we can confirm that Keresher and soon-to-be Master of the Books of Anatolia Balshazzar of Kish managed to rescue hundreds of precious scrolls and tablets.

                                                In 133 BC the Library of Pergamon was destroyed when the kingdom fell to the Romans. But we now know that Hapuseneb and Keresher were able to escape with hundreds of precious scrolls days before the legions fell on the city.

                                                • Very nice!

                                                  Addendum:

                                                  Following further research by Special Projects, we can now affirm that Pathfinder Parthenia of Udyana and her Sentinel protector Irene of Antioch were present at the Siege of Constantinople in 717-718 as Parthenia rescued hundreds of ancient scrolls before the Byzantine Emperor Leo III the Isaurian had 300,000 books burned. She encountered Lalica in 718, at the Battle of Constantinople during Arab invasion of Byzantine Empire, fresh from having killed Immmortal Antarah ibn Shaddah. Both women were too busy to challenge each other.

                                                  Jean-Jacques Beauvallet became Carolyn Mortimer’s first known kill at a time when a woman carrying a sword was simply unthinkable. Carolyn carried her broadsword with a short blade hidden in her robes and passed it as a prop when she was an actress in Paris’ successful Trebuchet Acting Company. Beauvallet was a failed comedian but a successful player of the Game with six known kills across Western and Southern Europe in the last one hundred years and wasn’t above killing a woman. Carolyn would have been his latest quarry but Sean Burns taught his protégé to be strong and resilient and to be prepared for the worst immortality had to offer. Her friend Rebecca of Mycenae taught her to stand her ground and to face what was to come. Beauvallet was aggressive and strong, while petite Carolyn was quikc and smart. In the end she prevailed, the Quickening setting fire to Reignard’s theater and ruining the premiere of the thespian’s lastest play, Orpheo.

                                                  offered her a position as nurse at Brennan’s Hospital

                                                  Doctor Sean Burns opened his own mental ward in London, not only to house the sick of the mind but also to shelter the occasional insane Immortal who needed a place to hide and stay anonymous. He offered a position as senior nurse to Lady Carolyn who agreed and kept her position with a firm hand and made one mistake : hirign an Immortal nurse named Candace Lea who she wasn’t are was a serial murderer who picked on any patients who had the misfortune of falling between her hands. Carolyn didn’t know that she just saw a kindred spirit in Candace and strick a friendship with her. In the following year, patiens started dying in dubious circumstances wherever Candace was on duty. Suspecting foul play, Lady Carolyn wised up and confronted her friend who admitted to the killings. To her, killing the insane was cleaning up mankind’s household from its vermin and she was doing it for the commong good. Afer all, Immortals didn little else when they took out “evil” Immortals out of the Game. This kind of self-justification didn’t agree with Lady Carolyn who proved how unladylike she could be in the Game when she drew her sword and dispatched Candace Lea, takign responsablmity for the deaths she caused when she hired a woman she should have distrusted in the beginning.

                                                  In 1805 Lady Carolyn and her husband barely escaped the guillotine thanks to Darius and Seans Burns who got them out of the prison where they awaited certain death on order from Napoleon’s secret services. They lived in London, feeling safe; unfortunately, the world has a manner of showing you safety is an illusion, especially if you are an Immortal. Gonzague Campiche was an Immortal on the payroll of Napoleon’s secret services whose job was to track down and kill French aristocrat suspected of plotting against the Emperor4s life. To him it was obvious John and Carolyn Mortimer were lethal ennemies of the Empire and it was time to sanction those ennemies. He didn’t suspect Carolyn was an Immortal like himself but when he murdered John in cold blood after torturing him for information on suspects, he lured the wrath of a discipel of Sean Burns, Rebecca of Mycenae and Hugh Fitzcairn, three amiable Immortals who could prove to be tigers on the immortal scene.
                                                  Lady Carolyn was the one to hunted Gonzague down and she took her time, wanting the hunter to feel like a prey for once in his wretched life. She avenged the death of her husband Immortal-style and took the time to mourn before leaving London for the Americas, joining the French communities which settled there in the United States and in Latin American countries.

                                                  Where most of 19th century French Immigrants settled in Costa Rica, Argentina and Chile, Carolyn Mortimer whose to avoid the company of her compantriots and settled in Venezuela, reinventing herself as a classica lmusic teacher at Chacao’s school of music where she diverted herself with the company of her students, trying to put away the emory of her husband John, murdered by Immortal Gonzague Campiche. Three years of living for young mortals helped her in her grief but time does heal wounds. She felt happy and free. Then she met another one of her kind, a dahsing rogue who courted her for three months, presenting her with lavish gifts, cosntantly interfering with her life in Chacao. Lady Carolyn wasn’t interesting in another romance but still.. she felt tempted and Rebecca of Mycenae taught her to use any opportunity to forget the heavy burder of Immortality.
                                                  Carolyn felt lonely and Beturian Allende was charming, if only a bit to obsessive. When one of her male student who had a crush on her was found beaten within an inch of his life and death threats were sent to another male teacher of the Chacao school Carolyn felt suspicious. It couldn’t be her charming scoundrel, could it ? Investigating the matter, she read the hate letters Arturo Nogueira received and spoke with young Chicao Parrado when he awoke from coma. Indeed, foul play came from her beau and she was forced to confront him. She was never the weak-spirited Immoral layd Beturian hoped her to be and showed the tigress beneeath her delicate features.
                                                  Carolyn odered Beturian out of Chacao, but Beturian wasn’t a man to take orders from a woman, and when Betirian tried to force himself on Carolyn, not even a favor from God could have helped the Spaniard agaisnt the strong blade of Sean Burns’ apt pupil.

                                                  of Russia; Found and mentored by Duncan MacLeod

                                                  After two decades of adventuring in the Americas, including a hopeless romance with a fellow Immortal, Lady Carolyn came back to her toots in Paris, then travelled to Scandinavia for a dozen of years before settign foor in Moscow, Tsardom of Russia, where she became an admirer of ballet at the Theater of the Bolschoi. There she met a teenaged Immortal girl, a mere slip of an Immortal who practiced ballet and put a sum of work and passion in her fraft that fired up the jealousy of more than one dancer in the company. This was a young woman who san”t afraid of making ennemies and playing the Game.. In her own perverse, seductive way, luring men to her bed before takign their heads after a night of debauchery. How could they suscpted the killer behind those innocent eyes ? Lady Carolyn was an apt psychologist in a time when no one knew the word and she saw the predator behind those eyes.
                                                  Irina wasn’t above seducing Immortal women... at least those inclined to bi-sexuality and Lady Carolyn had been initiated by Rebecca and Amanda to sapphic games, which she enjoyed a lot. The Game now, that was something else. She didn’t like mixing both and when Irina finally showed her true face, Carolyn was ready. Because she had been hunting Irina all along on behalf of Duncan MacLeod who couldn’t bring himself to kill a woman he once mentored and loved. Lady Carolyn was born way past the age of chivalry.
