  • All adopted, Dubiousbystander. A mortal woman cannot survive giving birth to pre-immortal children: she wither and dies in days. Explaining the matter of all Immortals being foundlings : their mothers died wihin hours or days of their births. Jin Ke loved his wife, he didn't want her to die carrying his children.

    • Apollo, did you like the Eight Devils ?
      Did you think of something for the Order's master archivist and the Master of the Scriptorium ?

      Cheers !

      • Yeah, i loved the Eight Devils, particularly the gorgeous artwork of the pictures. As an artist myself, i suppose i would appreciate them! Lol

        Still working on the Chief Archivist and the Overseer of the Scriptorium (unless you have any ideas!!), and i'll be posting the write-up for Hapuseneb over the weekend...

        Good job with the Immortal Hooligan btw...lol

        • Donald Hoyt was from my own sense of humor. Trash in need to be taken out of the Game. No ideas for the Chief Archivist and Master of Scriptorium, I am waiting for your stories lol Do you have future stories I mind for the Sacred Order ?

          • Well, I've got some vague ideas, but i need to flesh them out a bit first. I will say that James Horton and the Hunters were not the first renegade Watchers. In fact, Watcher archives record that around the time of the Roman civil war and the scouring of the Library of Alexandria, a splinter group of Watchers attempted to stop the Sacred Order from acquiring the ancient manuscripts. They believed the secrets should be for mortal man and that Immortals had no right to keep the books from them. There were 23 Watchers the Council recorded as having betrayed their vows and joined the splinter group. 7 of them were killed by the early Sentinels in the next decade, 7 others were hunted down by the Watchers and executed. The other 9 went underground. All knowledge of the activities of the unidentified Immortals in Alexandria was expunged and the names of the fugitive Watchers stricken from the records.

            But those 9 renegade Watchers never gave up their opposition to the Sacred Order. They formed a secret society of their own (haven't come up with a good name yet) and its mission was taken up by the families of those Watchers, handed down from generation to generation. Those nine families are the leadership of the group, which employs mercenaries as foot soldiers and ex-Intelligence agents as its spies. This is why the Sentinels carry guns in their arsenal, to protect the Pathfinders from these ex-Watchers.

            A secret war has been raging for centuries between the Order and the rival group of mortals, below the radar of the Immortal community and the Watchers Council.

            • Renagade Watchers opposing the Sacred Order. That would infer the Sacred Order would know about Watchers. Personally, I'd like to see a group of evil Immortals opposing the Sacred Order because the Order needs its antagonists in the battle of "good vs evil", right ? Each of them negative counterparts to the librarians, book-nerds and History lovers comprising the group. Specialized in destroying cultures and lores along the centuries. They existed centuries ago before the Apostate and the Sentinels finally took action and destroyed them all, like Kellistra and her group taking out the first Zodiac Brotherhood. Or they cold still be active in present times.

              Now here is a list of adjustements, because there weren't enough Immortals born in the 20th century who were killed by players of the Game in the last decades.

              Cheers!

Stephane Witkowski crossed in path and Cruz felt like a good fight would keep him I nshape, but that was a mistake to underestimate the Frenchman. One more bag of trash out of the streets.

              After Amanda settled old scores with his boss, Andre Korda, and killed his friend Crysta, Raphael reinvented himself as security agent for a casino in Manaus, staying out of trouble as much as possible. One thing he learnt from Korda is that immortality spews trouble and that its better to stay on the side of the angels. So he does : Archangel Casino is the perfect place of hiding for him, and when an immortal comes for a challenge he takes his sword and chooses his ground. But that rarely happens now : what immortal can walk around with a sword those days with so many surveillance technology ?

              In the four years we have followed him, little Naseem has been doing well in the Game, using the weapons he can to survive : a pumpgun like those of his generation does the trick, he doesn’t need to play by the rules unless he feels they don’t apply to him. Did he belive the fairy tales Jacques Morant told him . He must have started to believe in them when he found he wasn’t growing up and turning into a man. But this is not a child anymore, his innocence long gone even before his First Death in 2008. Like the children involved in wars and revolutions, his childhood was stolen from him and he nows plays on the Immortals scene as he does on the mortals battlefields, using whatever means at his disposal to simply survive.

Then his parents went away for one week holiday during wich Kondo forgot to feed, drink and clean himself. And that's how he died. From self-exhaustion. Burnout. In 2004 Kondo has progressed: from a cyber-obsessed computer geek, he turned into a fine student under Ijiro's guidance, learning to appreciate the company of his fellow men and to properly use a sword.

              After careful cross-referencing work and second-guessing, it it our opinion that the remnant of the People's Protectorate (aka, China Force) did uncover the existence of Amestrin of Khotan's work and her bodyguard Mei-Li Choe and were threatening the work of Amestrin, her anonimity and possibly the existence of the Sacred Order, had they found about the two women's motives for explloring the temples and libraries of China. When they tried to enter the Forbidden City, both women were faced with Shi Lang and Thaksin who wanted to bring them for interrogation. Mei-Li Choe proved to be merciless and took out the two Immortals, even though Thaksin pleaded for his life when he was defeated. One week later, Maya Lin and Huang Xianshi sought to avenge their comrades but Mei-Li recovered form her two Quickenings and that was the end of the People's Protectorate.

              • Hmm, you may have a point, my friend, about a rival group of Immortals taken out centuries ago who opposed the Order. It may also involve several missing Immortals on the roster, since such a conflict would be a secret one, out of sight of the Watchers and the Immortal community at large. It could also be where The Apostate forged his reputation as a remorseless killer, hunting down the Order's enemies and dispatching them.

                • Good point on the Apostate wiping out the evil coutnerparts to the Sacred Order, forging his reputation.

                  A few adjustements, dear Apollo: I think more interesting to have the Black Frtars breakout happen by the end of the Immortals War. Besides, there are less deaths in 2012 than 2011, this brings some equilibrium in the kills count.

                    • Charles Herne

                      Known aliases : Vassily Zaroff, Major Paul Hackett,
                      Craig Spencer
                      Notable characteristics : Hallmarks of ancient
                      origins; wears an eyepatch over left eye, wound
                      suffered during fight against Cassius Polonius

                      So much for the theory that Charles Herne was a past identity of Koty the Hunter as those are two different men who still have a lot of things in common : merciless players of the Game who are decent people at the same time, moral to mortals a,d play the Game only when forced to. Kotys does it driven by his duty to protect the Order of Knowledge while Charles Herne, who once called himself Emil Zaroff, hunted Immortals because he was paid to do so by the Immortals of Mother Russia in Afghanistan and in USSR-controlled countries, and later by the Combined Immortals of America before he discovered their true nature as corrupted champions of the American people. Disgusted as much by the CIA as he was by the BMR, Herne renounced head-hunting and went for a healthier way of using his Immortal gift by gathering strong-willed women of South Africa to protect the truly endangered species of the world : namely the wildlife. The Canadian wilderness, the Austrian outback, and now the Limpopo region of South Africa. To him, the Gathering can wait and the Immortal ciommunity can go to hell.

                        • Great work fleshing out the activities of the Apostate, my friend. Lots of interesting tales to be told. And i love all the pictures. You can have all the artistic license you want! Lol

                          UPDATE:

                          Hapuseneb

                          Who would have believed that an Immortal who barely appeared in our records; a bookish type, a scholar, who avoided the Game, would be the second oldest Immortal still alive. Second only to the legendary Methos. Who would have believed Hapuseneb would become the founder and leader of the most secretive and, probably, most powerful gathering of Immortals today. He has surrounded himself with like-minded Immortals who share his dream of gathering and protecting the greatest secrets of the world. Secrets which would bring down nations and likely threaten the pillars of organised religion. The Order has in its possession more knowledge than can be conceived of and riches beyond imagining. The treasure hoarded by the Templars was never in their possession when the knights were brought down. The Sacred Order had acquired it years before. They have safe houses scattered around the globe, hidden bunkers, and a group of fiercely loyal warrior Immortals in the form of the Pathfinders and their unofficial leader, the Apostate, an ancient Immortal who couldn't be more different to Hapuseneb and yet is his fiercest ally and most loyal friend. What could have happened to garner such loyalty from Kotys the Hunter to Hapuseneb? Whatever it is, Hapuseneb nonetheless commands an organisation that for centuries remained in the shadows, and it's only now that we are truly appreciating the scope and power of the Sacred Order and its Immortals.

                            Grigori Rasputin, the "Mad Monk" who was chief adviser to the last Tsar of Russia, was assassinated by the Immortals of Mother Russia in December 1916. Because of his devil-derived magic powers (or superhuman strength, or protective insanity, or immunity to poisons) he refused to die, despite being fed a gigantic dose of cyanide, being shot at point-blank range in the back (or chest), further shot in the head and shoulders, and beaten seemingly to death by several men. He was tied up and thrown into a frozen river, in which he finally drowned - or else escaped from, subsequently freezing to death on the bank. This version persists in history books today, albeit usually stripped of its mystical aspects.
                            Modern writers, using newly available Bolshevik and Soviet-era official documents, claim that the post-mortem found no trace of poison, and that Rasputin died simply of gunshot wounds. He was no harder to kill than any other mortal, and stories of him repeatedly rising from the dead that night originate solely with his killers-who were merely trying to turn a squalid murder into an act of demon-slaying heroism.
                            The Watchers know the truth, since Rasputin was identified as an Immortal during two separate encounters with immortals : Vlad Dobrinski at Rovanova court in 1912 and with Boris Ulov in 1917 near Petrograd. Since his encounter with Boris Ulov, Rasputin has been living in Antwerp as an alchemist, staying on holy grounds and keeping as far away from the Game as possible.

                            Finally Koschei the Deathless, aka Grigori Rasputin, made his move against the Immortals of Mother Russia now a decaying organisation who had proven unable to prevent the rise to power of Vladimir Putin in 2012 during the Immortals War which raged on for 24 months and killed one hundred Immortals across the world. Rasputin orchestrated the death of the BMR one by one in 2018, allowing himself the power to set the course to the election of his protege whom he felt was the right new Czar of Russia. He needed to kill off his ennemies and thus manipulated three Immortals into picking them off : Toutkar of the Tatars, Emomali Nabiyev, Simon Vasilyev, all three had scores to settle with the BMR and seized the Immortal War's opportunity to settle old, painful scores.All three had been persecuted by the Bolcheviks and hated the BMR who under unfortunate circumstances caused harm to Afghans, Tatars and Russian Jews. The fall fo the BMR was the rise of Vladimir Putin who we even suspected to be Rasputin himself. Rasputin himself handled Dimitri Bharkov, not wantign to let that privilege to somebody else.

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

                            Dubbed ‘Deathmask’, little Flower of Carnage aka Kyala was a brillant and crafty assassin who murdered her way across the armies of Manchuria during the Russo-Japanese war and also killed Russian officers and soldiers, spreading tales of terror of an unkillable ghost who wreaked havoc wherever she went. Her motives for killing aren’t known to us but we suspect her to simply be a psychopathic immortal manipulated by Matsuhiro Kanagawa, using her thrillseeking personality to create chaos in this beginnig of the 20th century. Kyala disappeared in 1905, but for four hundred years she was the nemesis of the ennemies of Japan until her re-appearance in the 1960’s when she stastrted playign the Game in earnest. Her latest kill was the frenzied Keiko Watanabe, a once heroine turned killer while under the influence of a Dark Quickening. It seems Kyala’s madness negated the erffets fo the DQ and she remains the same Immortal as before : a remorseless killer.

                            The Greek Military Junta (1967 - 1974) was a misguided attempt from Deoneces and Kyra of Sparta to bring democracry to their homeland and prevent it from falling in the clutches of the Communisits. Cleophon of Athens advised against if, feeling that the best ideas spawn disasters. Deoneces didn't listen and would bear the responsabilities of his actions for the rest of his life.

                            On 21 April 1967, just weeks before scheduled elections, a group of right-wing army officers led by Brigadier General Stylianos Pattakos and Colonels George Papadopoulos and Nikolaos Makarezos, gathered by Deoneces and Kyra, seized power in a coup d'etat. The colonels were able to seize power quickly by using elements of surprise and confusion. Pattakos was the commander of the Armour Training Centre and a disciple of Deoneces.
                            The colonels preferred to call the coup a "revolution to save the nation". Their official justification was that a "communist conspiracy" had infiltrated Greece's bureaucracy, academia, press, and military, to such an extent that drastic action was needed to protect the country from communist takeover. Thus, the defining characteristic of the Junta was its staunch anti-communism. The immediate consequences of the coup were establishment of military courts, suppression of civil liberties and dissolution of political parties. Everything Deoneces and Kyra hated. It is the first time that Deoneces and Kyra actually separated, in dispute over how to handle the whole matter, now that's it was going sour before their eyes.

                            Greece was internationally accused of violating human rights, with 6,188 suspected communists and political opponents imprisoned or exiled to remote Greek islands. Among them, Artur Drakov, master manipulator whom Deoneces felt he was the man responsible for manipulating the men he had been mentoring.
                            Eventually, the Junta collapsed and democracy was restored. Shaken, Deoneces retired from mortal affairs and didn't speak with the angry Kyrauntil they reconciled during their hut for the Eternal Swords of Allah in 1990.

                            • Some really great updates, my friend. Interesting stories and backgrounds on a lot of complex Immortals. I also enjoy how you are incorporating the activities of the Apostate into the past history of the Immortals now we know the background to the Sacred Order and his role in its protection.

                              Re: the still breathing spate of ancient Immortals. Yes, there are a lot more now, although i would argue those who are members of the Order don't count since they never leave the sanctuary of the Temple and play no part in the Game. The Pathfinders and Sentinels out in the world avoid contact with others of their kind where possible, only defending themselves as necessary. And the Apostate only acts to protect the Order and never announces his presence, except to those he sanctions on behalf of the Order.

                              Cheers

                              • Well , ancient Immortals, i.e born before Chris era or In the first centuries following the birth of Christ aren't that numerous, so I guess the Sacred Order Immortals ' continued existence isn't much of a stretch. Look at Darius : 2.000 years living on Earth before Horton got to him, but he was constantly on the move, mentoring Immortals from the four corners of the world. The Sacred Order must have had headquarters everywhere along the centuries, its latest one in Greece.

                                As for the final days of the Gathering... the Sentinels will die protecting the Pathfinders, the surviving Pathfinders will be killed or find safe haven on Holy Grounds before being lured out of holy grounds to their final deaths. The Apostate will die in combat, protecting the Sacred Order. As for the Order itself, they won't resist the final calling very long and will be forced to face what's to come. IMO. But that's not for today : around 2035... or sooner.

                                • I had way too many Immortals born in the 20th century who were on the active or inactive rosters, so I amde a few adjustements and also brought the Abigail Crane story to an end (wink!).

                                  killed durign those terrible years. Aigail was like a sister to Rhiannon but soon became her dark reflection in the mirror,
                                  terrorozing her for decades. It was to exorcize this particular demon that Rhiannon volunteered for the mission, a mission
                                  which met both women's expectations : Allegra got her revenge and Rhianon finally laid old nightmares to sleep.

                                    Jorgen Hammer let his deep hatred of Immortal women get the better of himself when he tried to take out Genna Jorgensen. No wonder he wouldn’t listen to Ceirdwyn, that man has a chip on his shoulders the size of an iceberg !
                                    He seens them (rightfully so) as the deadliest of the Immortals species and believes they are too numerous in the Game. That man lost his sanity long ago but not his intelligence until now.

He is well aware he is swimming in waters filled with shark, some of them bigger than others. But still, he has found some peace, away from the threats of Machiavelli and Mocenigo, both of whom have been dealt with by Samantha August in 1997. Edelray got away with his head and a comfortable sum of money siphoned off Machiavelli's wealth. So far, his life is good, and he even takes the time to take fencing instruction to make sure his head remains on his shoulders. It is a risky business to maange the Yakuzas money so he better bewxare : Kobayashi the vigilante is on the look out for any Immortal living on the fringes of the Law.

Methink Behrad Hamayoun is runnign from himself, from the bad memories he had of Laboudni’s fatatism who infected him for a time before the Spartan duo came after his ‘teacher’ and he was forced to go underground. When his first teacher, Kateb Qatyeb, was killed by the CIA in the wake of the WTC attacks, Behrad ran again and sough safe haven in the jungles of Guatemala. He hides, but he cannot hide from the coming Gathering.

                                    For nearly five centuries, Hilaria Quintero, known as The Harlequin, made her reputation among those Immortals who exist in the grey area that straddles light and dark, although Quintero was considered more dark than light; her bouts of psychosis often leading to murder or mayhem, satisfying a craving nurtured by her mentor and lover, Coronus of Persia, who exploited her trauma after her painful First Death to mould her into a dark image of himself. She made use of the skills she learned over the centuries to carve out a career as a "fixer" and clashed often with those Immortals, mostly female, in a similar line of work.Away from her career, Hilaria relaxed by satisfying her sexual need to "break-in" young teenage boys. If she couldn't seduce them, she would pay those who offered such services to provide her with one of "her boys.“ Her first encounter with one of the students of Cleophon of Athens almost saw her lose her head, when she clashed with Frankie Drummond in San Francisco in 1934 while on an assignment to kill a friend of the Crimson Butterfly. The Harlequin barely escaped alive only to reunite with the Butterfly in 2016 when she targeted the elder teenaged son of a family Frances Drummond is bodyguarding. Frances managed to free Lorenzo before Hilaria could do permanent damage to him and took the Harlequin out in a fury of thunder and lightnings. Lorenzo has never been the same again after this light show...

Noso died defending his people spear in hand before beign captured by Selim who turned him into his slave and apprentice before trying to teach him the rules of immortality and of the Game. Oso could never understand the Game but he understood he was cursed to walk the Earth forever and faded into obsuciry after leavign his teacher in 802. He re-appeared in the Nuba mountains alive and well, staying out of the immortal scene and protecting his people as he did for centuries prior to his death by the sword of Apollo Obote.

                                    • Nick Wolfe

                                      "What place is there for love when there can be only one", asked Nick Wolfe to Amanda after she shot him to death so he wouldn't die from slow-acting poison. Nick Wolfe didn't want to become immortal and resented Amanda for taking the decision in his place, thinking Evan Peyton's poison could have given him a permanent death. However, he isn't aware that immortality isn't necessarily triggered by a violent death. Aging, slow-acting poison, spoiled food do the trick too. But Nick rejected Amanda's love and support. Nick hates himself because he is in a world he cannot control : he cannot control the Game, he cannot control his Presence, warning immortals he is there. Nick cannot control his life anymore, and he tortures himself. Last time Amanda visited Nick in Vegas, the young immortal reconciled his differences with Amanda and accepted the presence of the Game in his life, startign to train seriously with mortal teachers and occasionally with the thousand-ears old thief.

She finally decided to play the Game for good and discovered she had quite a talent with swords, cutlasses and kitchen knives. Took out six immortals, including three who came after her. She looks like a mere slip of a girl, but is a wicked lady when things get pushy. However, she cannot resist mature men and good-looking Immortals which may prove to be her downfall after all.

                                      Christopher Vechio occasionally plays the Game but doesn’t really follow the rules, he tends to shoot first and ask questions later, and if the Immortal is an aggressive challenger, a bullet through the head is enough before he takes the head and Quickening. Fortunately for those of his kind, he doesn’t hunt and kill each time he meets one of his kind but his method of killing could attract the ire of more tradition-oriented Immortals and then Vechio could find himself in real trouble. Kvasir Kanwulfsson of the Vinland Clan is in Chicago and I have an inkling that Vechio will want to try his luck on the ancient Viking, in the grand tradition of petty challengers coming after legendary players of the Game. I am not placing any bet on Vechio at the moment.

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

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

                                      Finally Keenainak has left the wastelands of Alaska to play the Game, in his own fashion : shoot his quarries from diastance with a harpoon (an expert at it) and then take the head with a stroke of his cutlass. Very easy. I hate immortals who cheat in the Game, no class. He has been hiring himself as murder-for-hire and hunts immortals in his spare time, must be change from killing polar bears. Then he tried his M.O on Carter Wellan and Hazeem al Bachrim who had been forewarned by Ravenwood that the Inuit was in Calgary, so the two Immortals were prepared. Keenainak didn’t have the time to use his spear, Carter and Haresh faced him both. “Shoot one of us, the other will take you head”. Keenainak whipped out his sword and faced Carter Wellan who made short work of the marauding Immortal.

                                      Why did those children have to die ? Zabibah re-appeared on the Immortals Scene which she may never have left, only to kill five innocent Immortal children, chosing them as quarries for the Cult of Anubis while also serving as mistress to the President of Egypt. In the 2018 presidential election, Sisi faced only nominal opposition which he dispatched through political assassination or other means. He was helped by his mistress who told him what to do and now she rules over Egypt and may have been a secret agent of Memnet-Ra as once suspected by Watcher research.
                                      This is a clever, lethal woman who is expected to be present at the time of the Gathering lest she faces old ennemies such as Kashta of Nubia and Sit-Hathor Iunet.

                                      • Love your latest updates, my friend! Once again, some great background work.

                                        And i loved how you resolved the Abigail Crane story. Your link to Rhiannon Teague and her shared history with Crane has inspired me and i'm going to delve a bit into their shared history through some Watcher reports, detailing the torment Crane heaped on Teague and the reason why she hunted her former friend down with the help of Allegra Chambers.

                                        Cheers

The recent Earthquake of 2015 allowed to find a grotto which seved as a shrine to Nanlha. A beheaded squeletton was buried there, a sword laying next to it. A mystery of Nanlha’s past which was disclosed as an Immortal woman Nanlha loved dearly and who was struck with the dreaded Dark Quickening, according to legend. In fear of hurting her lover, the woman jumped to her death from a cliff and was found beheaded by Nanlha who buried her friend in this prace of worship.

                                          First recorded sighting : 1949. Arta, Epirus
                                          Found and mentored by Everett Bellian

                                          While not as driven by hate and the need for revenge like Annie Devlin or Cornelia Falcone, Cresida Papanagou was determined to be the voice of her people on the immortal scene, something Deoneces and Kyra of parta wouldn't disagree with. However, what they didn't agree with was the extreme means Cresida used to make her voice heard : political murders and bombs were tghings she wasn't afraid to delve in, anf for the past fifty years she became the terrorist she hated in 1944 when she fought Royalist troops to free her homeland. Her ideals as a communist where all material needs would be filled for everyone got perverted in time and she lost herself over time.
                                          Fifty decades isn't much for an immortal, but Kyra needed to stop her before she killed more people and when Cresida wouldn't listen to the voice of reason, Kyra was forced to take action : she hunted every member of Cresida's network of saboteurs and assassins, dispatched them in permanent manners - their bodies were never found - before coming after the head of the Epirus Liberation Front whom she found derad, decapitated by Athenns’ protector, Thanos of Athens.
                                          Had Talia Bauer been Cresida's teacher, she would have lasted ten minutes against the Spartan blade, but her teacher was Everett Bellian and against Thanos, she lasted two.

                                          Important : Maya Samphan is now to be called Maya Sokhit : as a Khmer killing fields survivor she cannot bear the same name as Khmer Rouge dignitary Khieu Samphan who comitted genocide on the Cambodian people. It's tantamount to have a German herone named Eva Himmler. Please update accordingly on Mayas profile and on the profiles of the Immortals she killed.

                                          And now a few young Immortals... all recycled characters.

                                          My name may be Mary Bad Eye but there isn’t a single soul who dares mock my tracking abilities, I can follow my Immortal anywhere he goes even when he goes missing for months. This is one man who left his teacher angry and with a bad attitude but he can control his meth addiction and his yearning for more of the Quickening. His first one he enjoyed in 2013 and since then he has been wanting more/ Some will say he is an addictive personality but little by little he wins more victories and soon no one will laugh at him anymore. Bewere Immortals of America, your days are counted !

                                          Portuguese expedtion to Ethiopia

                                          Watcher Research once mistook Theodore Zeleke for Sunda Kastagir but those are two different men with similar background and same incentive to free their people from opressive colonial rule. Kastagir is Malian, Zeleke is Ethiopian and has been confirmed as born in the 13th century while Kastagir was born in pre-Christ era in the Kingdom of Axum; both men share the same taste for foreign cultures, the same sense of adventuring, the same taste for gorgeous negro women and a knack at surviving the Game for centuries.

                                          In 1867 Zeleke got in conflict against the Secret Immortal Services but Richeard of Mercia didn’t want the amiable Immortal’s Quickening and turned the blind eye on his activities as resistance leader, letting him escape from the British colonial army with his men. Had it been Simon Killian or Steven Keane stationed in Ethiopia at this time, there is no doubt Zeleke would have been mercilessly slaughtered by a British saber.

                                          Lidio Valora first appears on Watcher records being mentored by the infamous Bartholomew of Wessex. He was seen regularly seen operating on both the mortal and immortal scenes as an investment banker diverting funds from the British Army during the war against Spain, WWI and WWI. He was reported to have funded the Spanish Cabal and gone in conflict against the SIS and later against th Knights of Charlemagne. A shadowy figure, Lidio lived in Southern Europe, living off funds accumulated during those terrible years, his mind unencumbered by the moral dilemnas or profiting from the suffering of the 50 Millions people killed or missing during last war.
                                          Lidio Valora, who disappeared from Madrid at the beginnign of the war, reappeared in Angola as a businessman in oil production; the Portuguese ironically sought his fortunes in a land his people originally conquered and exploited.

                                          I think the death of Brenda Wyatt was the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back. After the death of Brenda Wyatt, Sunda Kastagir, countless lovers and friends over the last four centuries, Connor MacLeod just couldn't take it anymore. The pain, the loneliness, the endless fighting, the pointless butchery caused by the Game. His cheerful attitude in when he fought Slan Quince in Seattle was faked : he pretended to be happy when he felt hollow inside. Ramirez was dead, Kastagir was dead, all the other heroes were too much in the shades of grey of the mortal world. Connor wanted respite from the Game and maybe he obtained it wherever he is hiding in present times.

                                          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.

                                          Since the start of the Mexican Drug War, many Mennonite colonies in Chihuahua have suffered the impact of the drug-related violence. The location of the colonies and the economic success of the Mennonites are the reasons why the community has been affected. The economic achievements have attracted the attention of organized criminal gangs, putting Mennonites at risk of armed robbery, kidnap and extortion. A small number of Mennonites have left the settlements and immigrated to other Mennonite settlements in Alberta, Canada, Belize and Paraguay to escape the violence.

                                          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.

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

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

                                          Research allowed to find the link between Irishwoman Hannah Witneg, student of Ceirdwyn and the elusive Laura J. Williamas both women were found to be one and the same; we could also provide information on several immortal women who were active in war times for the past three hundred years, all without recorded First death and who had incomplete chronicles on Watcher Records.
                                          Hannah Witneg, was an Irish woman who served in the Royal Marines for six years in the 1760s. She fought, disguised as a man, and was said to have served with ‘fortitude and valor’. She met her First death in 1762 and was mentored by Ceirdwyn who turned an already strong-willed woman into a powerful player of the Game who defeated more than one immortal who came after her head, thinking her easy picking.
                                          In 1781 she posed as a French-Canadian woman called "Miss Jenny", serving as a spy for the British during the American Revolutionary War. In 1817 she was located in Savannah, Georgia, where she was reported fighting a duel against another immortal woman; the duel was Inconclusive, Sarah McLaughlin let Hannah live to fight another day, not wanting to take her head with mortals prying around.
                                          In 1846, Hannah reinvented herself as Sarah Borginnes and was hailed as "Heroine of Fort Brown" following her actions during the Siege of Fort Texas. She went on to operate a series of inns providing food, lodging, liquor, and women to Zachary Taylor's troops.
                                          In 1862, as Laura J. Williams, she participates in the Battle of Shiloh during the Civil War with a company that she raised and led, all while disguised as a man. She meets immortal Thomas Morehead, parts in bad terms with the zealot immortal who hunts her down and kills her.

                                          Daniel Buckland has been relentlessly hunted like a fox by Hyde the Hunter who followed his usual Modus Operandi of tracking a young immortal to his teacher's lair after murdering his friends, his lover Patrick and all the mortals Buckland had the misfortune of meeting during the hunt.
                                          Buckland heard the tales of Martin Hyde by his teacher, Sunda Kastagir, who warned him of the headhunters he might encounter in Europe. But Buckland didn't want Hyde to kill his mentor, the man who had given a future and a life full of passion and adventures to him, so he lured Hyde out of Boston in the hope of losing him. I do not know what happened of him, since I lost both immortals and Hyde's Watcher had been killed two nights ago by his assignments. I fervently hope we will see Daniel again someday, his head firmly attached on his shouders with Hyde's beheaded body lying six feet under good English soil.

                                          • Have to come here and say excellent research re: the Japanese sisters and their links to the female warrior nobility of that period. I wonder if they had any contact with the noble Hideo Tanaka in their long lives?

                                            Also, glad to see some updates on the missing Immortal list. It makes sense some of them would show up again and the Watchers would confirm some of the missing as officially dead.

                                            Nice work with Kedgick being killed by Serena Harper, emphasising the in-fighting in the ranks of the Hellfire Club as opposed to the SIS who are more organised and trusting of each other.

                                            Cheers

                                            • The Onna-Bugeisha and Hideo Tanaka ? Most likely with Japan beign an insular archipelago. Yes they may have met.
                                              Can you post the profile for Immortal Jason Carthwright from your files, please ? He was once killed by Jean-Marc Claret, himself killed by Henry of Kent. I deleted Cartwright but I forgot what his story was...

                                              Thanks In advance

                                              • I have the stats for Cartwright, but can't find a write-up. It might be in with some of my other files, so i'll do a search. In the meantime, here's what i have:

                                                • Thank you Apollo. Unfortunately we already have Captain Richard Sharkey killed around that date during the Anglo-Spanish War.
                                                  So I tweaked in a different background for Cartwright...

                                                  Found and mentored by Robert Preston

                                                  This time it should do. I noticed you embossed parts of Cartwright's stats, did you do this with all the characters I sent over the years ?
                                                  That's a lot of efforts!

                                                    Just started doing it on the updated stats. It's a long job, but when i print them out they look great! Lol
                                                    I'm eventually going to update all the Immortal stats like this and print them off. That way i'll have physical files in case anything happens to my PC again.
                                                    It'll be a marathon, but i'll get there in the end...! lol

                                                    Oh and i found that write-up for Jason Cartwright:

                                                    A decent man who believed in the wisdom of keeping the colonies of England under watch and didn't share his teacher's "There Can Be Only One" vision of the Game. Colonel Cartwright met Jean-Marc Claret in 1690, felt being Immortals allowed them to go beyond patriotism but Claret decided only one of them would walk from the battlefield with his head on his shoulders.

                                                    From the Chronicle of Jean-Marc Claret
