    Felix Borizé
    Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
    Date : 12 July 2013
    Place : Valley of Tuscany
    Victor : Sharifa Shameq
    Watcher : Paula Navarro

    Felix Borizé gave up his internet scams after bad encounters with Immortal women and new lives in Turin, part of the recent
    migrant waves from the African continent to Southern Europe. He doesn’t play the Game but keeps his sword sharp and trains
    regularly with a mortal teacher… just in case. This is no fool, he knows how to quit a game when the going gets tough. Paul
    Musonge taught him to avoid fights when he can and to keep his head underwater, so to speak.

    Hunter Cooper
    Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
    Date : 1 July 2017
    Place : Kingston
    Victor : Samuel Ferguson
    Watcher : Frank Mortimer

    Hunter Cooper is the man who inspired the character of Quint to Steven Spielberg for his movie Shark, a rugged middle-aged
    man with deep hatred of sharks, hiding his fears behind a veneer of bad manners and scarcasm. He has a lot of tales to tell
    and some of them would raise hairs on your head : how he hunted a large white shark near the Australian coral reef only to
    face what seemed to be a megalodon, the extinct ancestor to common sharks.
    Exept this one was really big. Used to face prawning players of the Game, Cooper got the scare of his life when he faced a
    scarred, giant-sized Russian Immortal calling himself Victor Krueger, an Immortal radiating an intense malevolent energy.
    Cooper fled the scene, briefly hunted by the Russian. He was lucky the Kurgan wasn’t after him this day. Nowadays Hunter
    stays out of the Game, safe on the high seas in company of the most dangerous predators in the animal kingdom, wary of
    Immortals each time he sets foot on land.

    First teacher : Martin Hyde
    Known past associates : Martin Hyde,
    Andre Korda
    Known ennemies : Dorsey Comegna
    First recorded sighting : 1872, Perth. Found and
    mentored by Hyde, at this time hunting Aborigene
    immortals and kangaroos

    Known associates : Etain of the Second Look
    First recorded sighting : 1998. Belfast, Northern
    Ireland. Encounter with Etain, survivor of the
    Omagh bombing terrorist attack


    Daffyd Huws
    Background
    Original cultural affiliation : Welsh
    Born : 1837; Carnathen, Wales
    First death : 1869, Taken in quicksands while
    trekking in the forest
    First teacher : N.A
    Known associates : Black Friar mental patients
    First recorded sighting : 1899, outskirts of
    Carnathen. Mentored by Rhiannon Teague after his
    body was recovered during swamps cleaning
    Operation sponsored by government

    When the intact body of Dafydd Huws was recovered near Carnathen, the scientific world was puzzled at seening an delirious
    man who somehow survived drowning in quicksands and talked like a man born in the 1930’s. Rhiannon Teague got wind of the
    affair and investigfated the matter, finding a new immortal; she took he matter in her own hands after warning the SIS which put
    pressures on Wales agencies to release Huws to the competent hands of Teague. Dafydd Huws became a permanent guest at
    Sean Burns’ Black Friar Asylum after it became obvious the man would never recover his sanity : drowning again and again for
    thirty years, sliding from half-consciousness to coma, with watery sand in your lungs is bound to destroy your psyche. Dafydd
    Huws thinks himself back in the Carnathen of the 1850’s; oblivious to the outside world, his mind forever gone.
    When the Immortals War erupted and the other immortals patients of Burns rioted, Dafydd was away with the fairies, so to
    speak, and was never aware of it.

    Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased

    Place : Stuttgart
    Victor : Rocco Mangiatesta
    Watcher : Alper Al-Taftazarni

    Like other motorcycle racers in the Game - Richie Ryan, Alex Raven, Lalica, Gregor Czardas - Ender Gezmen keeps a mobile
    target, always ahead of immortals with agressive behavior, seemingly lured to racing contests like flies to neon light. Ender
    was mentored by Nasredding Hoca, one of the wisest immortal in the world who kept his head for centuries by being paranoid
    about immortals and stayed relatively sane even during the Immortals War. Ender is overcautious in his life as his is when
    racing : he doesn't't want his secret exposed by a miraculous recovery after a fatal accident and rides his motorbike like an
    overachieving pro. After the war ended and the dust settled, Ender was unsurprisingly among the survivors, ready to face the
    21st century with his two best friends : his bike and his Turkish cavalry saber.

    Teague who hads the same exact background as Abigail : both women served as SOE agents durign WWII and were first
    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.

    Edelray leads an unassuming life ever since the disbanding of the Court of Beauties, "moving silently through the centuries" is his motto. 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.

    I don’t know if Behrad has anything to fear from Deoneces and Kyra of Sparta by now, the ESA has been destryoed, their legacy of hatred has been purged too in the 2010’s and no one else on the Immortal scene has connections to Jamal Laboudni’s group. 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.

    Victor: Frances Drummond
    Watcher: Alex Kavos

    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...

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.

      Just a locale immortal innskeeper trying to keep out of trouble; unable to lift as word, lost Zoltan Laszlo in the woods and bashed Michael Rojek on the head with a frozen ox limb before escaping him. 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.

      Update

      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.

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.

      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. Nine years later, Djibo faced Anansi the Spider in combat and facing an Immortal like Anansi isn’t like facing a squadron of mortal troopers, especially a lethal woman like her.

      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

          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.

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 !

          Being the competitive fencer that he is, I have an inkling Roland Fink wants to start playing the Game but this is a heavy competition he has to face : most of the surviving Immortals are ancient and experienced fighters, but this is a determined self-disciplined German who works hard on his fencing and also on aikido, jiu-jitsu, gymnastics and constantly trains with mortal teachers. In a world bereft of the greats like Hans Kershner or Duncan MacLeod he would have a hard time to find a good-natured Immortal ready to train him. Hannah Baran gave him fair warning about older Immortals but she belived in him.

Then the strange Estonian told him of a Game, of Immortality or the myriad of possibilities adoctor like him could bring to this world with his Immortality, he taught him the Game and tried to train him with the sword. Tarek would have none of it, he didn't care about this Game nonsense and was sworn by the Hypppocratic Oath to preserve life wherever he went. In four years he did his best to help the constant flow of refugee who came from the four corners of the Levant and drowned his sorrow and interrogations in his work. Then Atef Hayreddin challenged him to a fight and killed him in cold blood, not seeing the point in leaving a young Immortal become competition in the upcoming Gathering.

Yakuza boss Hideyo Shideki knew the trouble came from an Immortal man for he was well aware such beings existed in Japan for centuries as well as in other parts of the world. So he gave a few discreet calls and soon Wayne Chang the assassin was given an enveloppe with cash and a picture.

          The Sukekuni sisters died against the Bakumatsu Hitokiri brothers in 1868 at the Battle of Azu, during the Boshin War. They were zealous followers of the Aizi Clan and had fought for various clans over eight hundred years of Japan history, following one clan leader orr another, sometimes travelling abroad during diplomatic missions to China and Korea. Dubbed “the Four Amazons” they equalled in skills and savagery the fabled Amazons of Dahomey and trained battalions of mortal women who had been cast out from their families or who had survived terrible fates at the hands of men and sought new lives in the ranks of the Sukekuni Sisters army. For eight hundred years, Japanese women from all walks of life found new calling as soldiers, warriors, mercenaries and assassins, trained by the rightous daughters of the legendary Tomoe Gozen.

          Author notes :
          Onna-bugeisha was a type of female warrior belonging to the Japanese nobility. These women engaged in battle, commonly alongside samurai men. They were members of the bushi (samurai) class in feudal Japan and were trained in the use of weapons to protect their household, family, and honour in times of war. Significant icons such as Tomoe Gozen, Nakano Takeko, and Hōjō Masako are famous examples of onna-bugeisha.

          A few Immortals, so far reported M.I.A, have re-appeared alive and well in recent years....

          Theodore Zeleke
          Known aliases : Zelichus
          Notable characteristics : Lived on Holy Grounds
          Weapon : Custom broadsword
          Inconclusive fight against Bartholomew of
          Wessex, 1520; Farid al-Zafir, 1543

          Status
          Most recent base of operations : Addis Adaba,
          Ethiopia
          Occupation : Philosopher, writing treatise on religion;
          protesting human rights abuses
          Prior occupation : covert leader of underground
          resistance against British occupation of Ethiopia

          Watcher : Rtesearch, Eastern Africa

          Background
          Original cultural affiliation : Ethiopian
          Born : 1270, Early Solomonic Period of Ethiopia,
          Northern Tigray
          First death : 1315, Captain of Ethiopian army
          during early expansion in the Horn of Africa
          First teacher : Ghebre-Egziaber
          Known past associates : Ghebre-Egziaber,
          Sunda Kastagir, Afar Clan
          First recorded sighting : 1525. Northern Ethipia
          In conflict agaisnt Bartolomew, at this time leading
          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.

          First recorded sighting : 350. Scottish Highlands
          Repelling legion led by Faustus Octavius with
          Scottish highlanders

          Alconen was the third member of a trio of Briton warriors comprising Ceirdwyn and Alex Raven, repelling the Roman armies during the three first centuries of common era. It was rumored he was living in a ménage à trois with the two celtic women but nothing could be further from the truth : Alconen respected his fellow immortals as the warriros that they were and he never shared a bed with those ladies, contrarily to Deoneces of Sparta who shared battles, bed and beers with Kyra, Seraphine and Katherine of Samothrace. The alliance, forged over the centuries, united the thre immortals against Rome, the Persians, the Germans, the Nazis, against Memnet-Ra’s killers in recent years.
          When Ceirdwyn fell, Alconen mourned with Alex Raven but resumed his life by settling in Algiers, a place he hadn’t visited in years. He is now a graphical arts desiger, adapting himself to the customs of the 21st century, leaving finally the defense of Great Britain to more recent heroes such as the Secret Immortals Services.

          Known ennemies : SIS, Knights of Charlemagne
          First recorded sighting : 1758. Rio de Janeiro,
          Brazil. Student of Bartholomew

          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.
          We have to look out for Jacobo Klassen to re-appear somewhere in Central America unless he pushed with hsi family to Canada.

          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.

          Watcher : Research, Hellfire Club

          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.

          First recorded sighting : 1762. Maine, USA
          Found and mentored by Ceirdwyn

          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.

          A sextet of sea-faring rovers, malcontents, occasional players of the Game when bored and all of them meaner than alleycats. In their last lifetime they were professional wrestlers and had been a constant thorn in the Six of Vinland’s collective hide until they finally permanently disposed of them.
          For one thousand years they have been competing with the Six of Vinland, as their opposed counterparts : the Vinlanders are heroes, they were the villains. The Vinlanders only killed when forced to, were moral to mortals and rarely competed in the Game; the Scandinavian Six played the Game like furies, had utter contempt toward mortals and never evolved past the barbaric times in which they were born. There are savage, predatory, lustful creatures, living on the edge of immortality and pride themselves as the best players of the Game in Scandinavia. They re-appeared this summer in Chicago, ready to hunt the Six of Vinland, their sworn ennemies.

          • 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

                • 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.

                    • There must be entire volumes of potential paperwork there. If you have missing files in case something happens again to your PC they are still available on my mainfraime.
                      Personally, I wish the Watchers Chronicles would remain a virtual thing, if you know what I mean...
                      Can you please look up Bethany Clarke's profile and give me the lsit of her students ? Still looking for the name of the Frenchwoman she once mentored lol

                      Cheers.

                      The chronicles of Ben Said-al-Magribi report how in 868 he fought the forces of Count Vimara Peres during the first reconquista of Iberia by Spanish troops, the first attempt to repell Moorish occupation of the Iberian peninsula. Ben Said was in Northern Portugal, when in the middele of a heated battle he sensed the presence of one of his kind, a mercenary who introduced himself as Glismoda, a Suevi briefly listed on the roster of immortals in 468 when she fought Cristovao Bastos during the sack of Coimbra by the Suevi tribe. Glismoda was thought to have been killed by the Portuguese hero, but somehow lived four centuries before re-appearing as a soldier of Count Peres. The battle raged on, ending on a stalemate by the end of the day. The following evening, Ben Said and Glismoda faced each other as immortals are prone to do. Ben Said fought with the same vigor and passion he bestowed on the Portuguese army and won against the Suevi warrior, taking her raw power and battle instinct; the following day, Ben Said won another victory when his army successfully defeated the army Count Vimara Peres.

                          The Siege of Constantinople in 626 saw the battle of Xanthia of Melitus (again under the influence of a Dark Quickening) against ‘Shibtu of Yambad’ as she introduced herself, a consort and favorite of the Emperor of Constantinople. The fight, long and harduous, ended with Xanthia’s victory, the Quickening was quite powerful and rich, alluding to an immortal of ancient age. Shibtu’s background remained undetermined until her name was found mentioned in a chronicle of Egyptian Ankh-Psantek in 1274 BC, she was a consort of his and had to defend herself against his jealous rage until she disappeared from Watcher scope. Ishtar of Erech is the immortal who disclosed her origin story to Xanthia of Melitus during a trip to the Museum of Louvres in Paris, as she was the subject of an exposed painting.

                          I suppose we needed Crocodile Dundee on the Immortal scene I nAustralia, yet another cliché of the Australian myth for the Europeans and Americans who come visit us. Ramsay MacDonald however is a very seriosu player of the Game and an apt survivor who protect the wildlife and its endangered species from ‘roos hunters and croc hunters coming for their pelts. In the past two hundred years sicne wehave bene following him many Immortals have come after his head and never came back from their safari trip. His sole friends in the Immortal community are Mandawuy the shaman and the vigilante Rokali Tapai who also hunts predators, of the sexual kind. They once debated on who are the worst : those who kill to eat or those who maim and rape women andchildren. A neverending debate.

                          Born : 1709, Kingdom of Dahomey
                          First death : 1729; Killed in warfare agaisnt Oto
                          state as soldier in the Amazons of Dahomey corps
                          First teacher : Enobakhare
                          Known associates : N’Nonmiton Clan
                          Known ennemies : François Marchette
                          First recorded sighting : 1890. Kingdom of
                          Dahomey. Following Enobakhare in warfare
                          against troops led by François Marchette

                          Enobakhare and Ikuseghan were soldiers in the corps of Dahomey Amazons, four thousand women molded into the most savage, ruthless and efficent cadre of female warriors of Africa, rivaling with the Spartans and the Kikuyus in savagery. After the dissolution of the corps in 1894, Xavier St. Cloud challenged Enobakhare and Ikuseghan to a fight and was litterally torn apart by the fierce women, losing a part of his stomatch and nearly one limb or two before Ikuseghan started tearing his throat apart with her own teeth. Xavier got lucky he could escape from the furies but he has never been the same since. During the Great War he was using mustard gaz in the Game and In the 1990’s ressorted to mercs armed with uzis. I think the amazon truly destroyed his self-confidence because she wasn’t even carrying her sword when he came after her. Enobakhare and Ikuseghan, who survived the slaughter of the Amazons elite troop durign the French-Dahomey war, are rumored to have joined Buffalo Bill Circus after their mentor took out Xavier and were never seen again, maybe they still live In America, under different identities

                          First recorded sighting : 1873. Danakil, Ethiopia
                          Encounter with Sunda Kastagir

                          Asnaku has been living peacefully with the Afar tribesmen and hasn’t taken any heads in fifty years, not a very active Immortal. She likes her peace and quiet but this wasn’t always the case : reports tell of a firebrand of an Immortal in the 18th century who killed her way across the horn of Africa before retiring to raise crops of children with the Afars, a savage warrior becoming a mother. A rare incidence with Immortals but it happens. She surrounded herself with four Afar women she raised as her own daughters, pre-Immortal ones.
                          They were Brihan, Abebech, Lakech and Mihret and they comprise a unique tribe of women on the Immortals scene in Ethiopia and were met by Sunda Kastagir in 1873; Asnaku explained to Kastagir that she gathered and kept her daughters around her and sheltered them, protected them, waiting for the time of the Gathering when they would fight together like one and become The One.

                          • No offence taken, my friend. All is good my end!

                            In the meantime, here's that chronicle you wanted. Feel free to make any updates you need:

                            Anne of Cleves

                            Notable characteristics: Chalk-white skin
                            Weapon: El Cid Tizona sword

                            First death: 1512; Raped and murdered by English
                            soldiers during King Henry VIII’s War on France
                            First teacher: Carolyn Godfrey, cross-identified as Edwina of Mercia

                            Known enemies: Lucius Oranius Capito

                            First recorded sighting: 1512, Calais.
                            Found and mentored by Edwina, at this time
                            passing herself off as a captain of Henry VIII’s army

                            Soft-spoken, shy student of Edwina who never really recovered from being raped and murdered by English soldiers during the War of Henry VIII. Became a doctor to help the poor and suffering and has been avoiding the company of Immortals as much as possible with the exception of Edwina’s other students and her friend Grace Chandel.

                            The murders of Bethany Clarke and later Edwina have fuelled in her a wish for revenge; while not a vigilante, she embarks on a quest for the Hauser brothers and for Capito whenever she hears news of them.

                            From the Chronicle of Anne of Cleves

                              • Okay, my friend, here's the first of the deleted chronicles. I only have a few of them though. I must have deleted the others:

                                Alphonse of Normandy

                                Age: 155
                                Known aliases: Albert de Hauteville
                                Notable characteristics: 5’ 7”; overweight
                                Weapon: Two-handed broadsword

                                Roster of Immortals Status: Deceased

                                Victor: Lothar I
                                Watcher: Frederique de Gris

                                Background
                                Original cultural affiliation: Norman
                                Born: 1295, Rouen, Duchy of Normandy
                                First death: 1345; Killed in skirmish with English
                                forces, Hundred Years War
                                First teacher: Marie-Louise Biez
                                Known associates: None
                                Known past associates: Marie-Louise Biez

                                First recorded sighting: 1347, outskirts of Rouen, Normandy.
                                Found and mentored by Biez during Black Plague
                                years

                                The fight was brief, Alphonse pitted all his strength against the mercenary in service to the invading English, to no avail; Lothar was a player of the Game for centuries, he was fast and mean, has speed while Alphonse was an overweight aggressive Immortal who only knew brute strength without any fighting skills. That is why he lost.

                                King Edward I of England

                                of France. Student of Bartholomew

                                I suppose that after two years of travelling with Borin and being little more than his hired help receiving only scraps of food for his good services, Kenneth decided his time as Forthwind’s lackey was over. When he lured Borin into the old abbey, the man from Wessex didn’t suspect the place was derelict and contained none of the treasure Kenneth promised. The Saxon boy buried his accomplice up to his neck with crumbling stones before taking his head, mockingly stating that one should take better care of the people who he chooses to travel with.

                                • Thanks Apollo. I gave a different background to Borin, now named Ioan Gruffud (aka Borin Forthwind of England), born In the Kingdom of Wales.
                                  "Borin Forthwind" is a fantasy name actually, it doesn't exist anywhere on sites referencing medieval English names. He would more be a Dungeons & Dragons kind of character.
                                  As for Alphonse... well, I must have disliked him and I already have a Frenchman killed during the One-Hundred Years War.

                                  In the last nine years since we started this gig on the HLBB I deleted 370 characters with valid reasons... and recycled one hundred of those.
                                  I have presently 3,730 Immortals on my lists.

                                  The stats on your files do look great.

                                  Would you have a character named Erik De Pre on you lists ? Killed by Seraphina in Sout hAfrica.

                                  • I actually like the stats and background on Borin Forthwind as a victim of Kenneth. But i agree that his name is a bit D & D fantasy, so i decided to check out the Saxon names and have now updated thus:

                                    Borin Forthwind becomes....

                                    Breid of Wessex

                                    Known aliases: Bula of Hastings, Bitel Fossard

                                    I'll see if i have Erik De Pre and i'll post those other chronicles i have.

                                      David Bowie

                                      Darius Crews and Hunter Quayle have often been mistaken for Hazeem Al Bachrim and Carter Wellan, a pair of wandering Immortals of opposite cultural background, one black, one white, living in environments where racial mixing was at best viewed with scorn and prejudice. Crews and Quayle’s backgrounds are those of one Africna negro paired with a white anglo-saxon, one never without the other. But where the Ashanti Hazeem and his companion played the game and travelled to the four corners of the Earth, Crews and Quayle stayed neutral in the Game and kept a low profile, living as cow-boys, gunslingers, bounty hunters, sheriff deputies and all manners of gun-toting heroes of the American West, though they would never call themselves heroes, rather survivors.

                                      The following timeline was maistakenly attributed to the Moor and his suqire, it is now officially attributed to Darius Crews and Hunter Quayle.

                                      1835–36: The Texas Revolution in Mexico resulted in the short-lived Republic of Texas. The Revolution is supported by Darius and Hunter who meets his first death durign the Battle of the Alamo.
                                      1838–40: Both men take part in the Civil war in the Federal Republic of Central America that led to the foundings of Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica. Unconclusive fight of Darius against Lothar the Frank.
                                      1844: Darius and Hunter fight in the Dominican War of Independence from Haiti.
                                      1846-1848 : Involved in the American-Mexican War.
                                      1848–58: California Gold Rush; Travel all the way to the 'land of opportunities'. Unconclusive fight of Hunter against Kern.
                                      1861–65: American Civil War between the Union and seceding Confederacy; Darius joins the all-black regiment commanded by Robert Gould, immortal, and meet pre-immortal Andrew Cord.
                                      1868-1878: Ten Years' War between Cuba and Spain sees Darius and Hunter on Spain's side. Both men disappear after encounter with young Immortal resistance fighter Loretta Velasquez

                                      See where this is going ? We have Robert Gould and his student Andrew Cord, Harehs and Carter Wellan and now Darius and Hunter!
                                      Darius and Hunter are redundant but I like them all the same...

                                      The Messenger, aka the Apostate I
                                      From the Chronicles of the Sacred Order research project

                                      One upon a time, the Apostate role wasn't given to Kotys the Hunter but to an ancient and wise Immortal who discovered the secret of Memnet-Ra and his infamous Zodiac Brotherhood, a man driven to world dominion by using Immortals as his pawns, like pieces of chess, and started the sick heresy known as The Game. Two thousand years of pointless killing the man known as the Apostate decided to stop. Thus was born the legend of the Messenger, an Immortal who betrayed his pledge to the Order of Sacred Knowledge and stopped killing his own kind, in the name of peace. For eleven hundred years - from the day he left the Order to his untimely death in 1996 - the Messenger scoured the world, looking for Immortals ready to listen to his message, going so far as to pose as Methos, the oldest living man. His identity still remain one of the best kept secrets of the Order. In time the Order forgave his betrayal and he was replaced with a more ruthless Apostate, Kotys the Hunter.
                                      Kotys himself sought to kill him : not only for betraying the Order but also because of the trail of bodies the Other Methos left in his trail : good men and women who forsook the Game and paid the ultimate price for it. Eventually, a Kurgan wannabe named Wilhelm Kliest (aka William Cullbraith) cheated Kotys out of his assignment, but the damage was gone : had it not been for the Messenger and his preaching, many more Immortals would live to this day and now that the Gathering is coming by the end of the next decade, The Sacred Order works to preserve the secrets of the Immortals so their existence be never forgotten. And this is a true testament of the wonders Immortals and Watchers could do together.

                                        Known enemies: Zai Jie, Connie Richland

                                        First recorded sighting: 1787, Valley of Mampang,
                                        China. Inconclusive fight against Zai Jie.

                                        Carter Hawk had only one passion, only one love: unearthing ancient treasures, discovering forgotten civilizations and old languages. While this would rank him as a favorite Immortal among historians and researchers in Watcher circles, Carter lived also for the Game, for the thrill of battle and for the Prize. But this was second only to his love of archaeology. He was first spotted on Watcher records in the Mampang Valley of China, when he met and challenged Immortal Zai Jie over the digging of an ancient temple. The fight was interrupted by an abrupt landslide, Carter just left the area.

                                        He was seen combing the four corners of the world, digging forgotten treasures and occasionally playing the Game. In 1861, he married a pre-Immortal girl and trained her in fencing and archaeology, but never managed to make her a happy woman. Urania soon left him alone, and Carter resumed his life.

                                        In 1990, he returned to the Valley of the Kings in Egypt where he challenged Connie Richland, another Egyptologist trying to learn more about Pharaohs’ subjects and life in ancient Egypt, Connie fought Carter and won. While Carter was a dedicated player of the Game and a proficient earth-digger, he forgot one thing: to be a man, a human being, and this, somehow, is what lost him when he underestimated, first his wife, then Connie Richland.

                                          Ah Vincent ! Lost somewhere on a road, looking for an unattainable goal he never could reach. Born in a time predating the Game, seeing the folly of it but never realising the Game was such a part of Immortality that both could be never be parted. I long suspected Vincent was older than I am, but who can prove it ? When I spoke to him the first time, he never realised who I was and I seriously believed his mind had crumbled when Iistened to his idiotic antics about fear being the source of all evil on earth. The source of evil is us, of course. Just us. What I find truly shameful is how his "teachings" led other Immortals to their death, which is a perversion of his message of peace : lay down your sword so we all live together like a big happy family. Well, all families are dysfunctional and have their nasty elements. Like my dearly departed family.

                                          From the Journals of Adam Pierson, 2017

                                          The Messenger, aka the Apostate I
                                          From the Chronicles of the Sacred Order research project

                                          One upon a time, the Apostate role wasn't given to Kotys the Hunter but to an ancient and wise Immortal who discovered the secret of Memnet-Ra and his infamous Zodiac Brotherhood, a man driven to world dominion by using Immortals as his pawns, like pieces of chess, and started the sick heresy known as The Game. Two thousand years of pointless killing the man known as the Apostate decided to stop. Thus was born the legend of the Messenger, an Immortal who betrayed his pledge to the Order of Sacred Knowledge and stopped killing his own kind, in the name of peace. For eleven hundred years - from the day he left the Order to his untimely death in 1996 - the Messenger scoured the world, looking for Immortals ready to listen to his message, going so far as to pose as Methos, the oldest living man. His identity still remain one of the best kept secrets of the Order. In time the Order forgave his betrayal and he was replaced with a more ruthless Apostate, Kotys the Hunter.
                                          Kotys himself sought to kill him : not only for betraying the Order but also because of the trail of bodies the Other Methos left in his trail : good men and women who forsook the Game and paid the ultimate price for it. Eventually, a Kurgan wannabe named Wilhelm Kliest (aka William Cullbraith) cheated Kotys out of his assignment, but the damage was gone : had it not been for the Messenger and his preaching, many more Immortals would live to this day and now that the Gathering is coming by the end of the next decade, The Sacred Order works to preserve the secrets of the Immortals so their existence be never forgotten. And this is a true testament of the wonders Immortals and Watchers could do together.

                                          Martin Hyde trained Christoph Koenig well and turned him into an unredeemable bastard and killer of yougn Immortals as were all the Immortals from his line of students. Exept Christoph didn't kill seasoned Immortals, his preferences went to Immortal women. Koenig lived for the thrill of the hunt and specialized in women since he was taught early they could be as dangerous as wilcats or black spiders; he killed six that we know of until he crossed the path of Kristin Gilles whom he though to be his next quarry, but he was the one to be picked off : she seduced him out of his wits, they spent a few months together until he tired of her and tried for her head. But this is a wicked woman who knows her way with poisoned daggers and sword. She launched her blade through his heart and took his head, scoring another Immortal like the praying mantis she proved to be.

                                          • Yes! Really loved what you did with Jacob of Ashkelon. An Apostate before Kotys the Hunter? Genius idea!
                                            And the fact the new Apostate set out to eliminate his predecessor was also a nice twist and proof of how far Kotys will go to preserve the secrets of the Order.
                                            Still got to wonder though whether Methos is aware of the Order or not. The Order obviously knows all about him....

                                            Ivor thought he could take on Amy Ross, a student of the great Henry of Kent, and was sadly mistaken when the relatively young woman landed him on his knees and took his head, stating that men of his generation have no better manners than the ones who challenged her decades ago.
                                            Found and mentored by Keith “crazy weasel” Boyer, Ivor was infected with the aggression coming from the young Immortal and thought the best defence was attack. He expected to take on one Immortal after another, figuring he had all the time in the world to win the fabled Prize; he would go from one city to another, posing as a college student, living large and enjoying his immortal youth. But he stayed the computer geek he used to be, and no one would talk to him because of his insufferable arrogance and chauvinistic attitude to foreign students.
                                            When at last he met his first Immortal, sweet-natured Amy, he thought himself lucky and lost his head before he even got to lose his virginity.

                                            As pre-Immortal, mentored by John Garrick,
                                            taught of the Game after his First Death

                                            In the 108th year of his immortal life, Anthony Bainard was working on a sculpture of the Virgin Mother and her child to celebrate the nativity by the end of December. The Virgin Mother was nearly done, the baby Jesus looked beautiful, as if coming alive in the hands and tools of Anthony.
                                            The young Immortal was respected by his peers and avoided the company of other Immortals as much as possible, having been forewarned by his master, John Garrick, that a Scot would come after him and end his life. So, Anthony stayed in England and never set foot in Scotland.

                                            Alas, William Campbell of Strathclyde was a man who liked to hunt outside of Scotland and had already killed an English Immortal in 1376. When William heard strange stories of a stonecutter who seemingly kept his youthful appearance when others grew old and died past the age of thirty, he started hunting again.
                                            On the 23rd of December, Anthony Bainard’s head fell to the ground, his Quickening lit up the sky and destroyed the last of his work, because of a Scottish murderer who never saw the beauty his quarry created.

                                              On the Black Continent, 1960 became known as 'the Year of Africa' with Belgian Congo, Togo and Somalia claiming their independance from the empires that kept them under their rule. Echijole Jimah, always one to fight for a rightful cause fought for the emancipation of those three countries and got caught in the schemes of Erik De Pre, a Walloonian involved in the Congo Crisis. Closely working with Sunda Kastagir, Bebe Kiamonni and Sekou Nkruma she worked on the revolutionnaries ' side and found herself in conflict with De Pre whose games of politics were putting the newly independant country in danger. Echijole interfered and took the head of De Pre, but unfortunately couldn’t prevent the subsequent civil war that took place between 1961 and 1963.

                                              John Rhodes is the man who taught Frank Bascombe and Girk Coejeman eveything they knows about the Game, about hunting colored people so that the One may be the white man as it is the will of God. Jews, blacks, Asians, Pollacks, none of them are safe in South Africa, for John Rhodes is watching us, keeping us safe from the black Satan.
                                              He killed five immortals in one century and could have killed three more, but Rhodes is a patient man : he has files on the immortals of South Africa, he knows where they are and that he can easily defeat them.
                                              In the end there can be only one. In South Africa, the white man prevails.

                                              Culbraith was pretty good with a sword and had a chip on his shoulder the size of Detroit, but somehow I found it hard to be intimidated by a guy who's still wearing leisure suits in the '90s. No wonder the peace-loving Methos thought he could turn this guy from the dark side -- Culbraith was nothing more than a Bad Guy Wannabe. He was a villian seriously in need of a makeover if he wanted to compete in the big leagues. Face it, the Kurgan would have had this guy for lunch.

                                              Period of Sumer. Encounter with Tizkar of Sumer

                                              There is not one “Methos Chronicle” per se as much as there are threads, pale and finely spun, weaving their way in and through all the other chronicles. The trick to researching Methos is to find a thread and follow it as far as you can go before it disappears again. Much of what is “known” about the elusive oldest immortal is based on vague rumor,innuendo. Much of it is also wrong. While he can be placed in Sumer during the Early Dynastic Period, and later in Ur in the 2nd Millenia BC., he is most likely not Sumerian. While there is evidence to support his presence in Egypt in three separate periods, he is not Egyptian.
                                              Whatever his origin, he has been many things since; he has been a slave and a god and all manner of men in between. He has been described as a huge bear-like man, with a deep booming voice; a fearsome warrior, noted for his wisdom and his cunning; a natural leader of men who would eagerly lay down their lives for him. Earlier Methos Research has speculated that Ahaziah of Ramoath Gilead was one of Methos alias, but if that were the case, Methos died in Lutetia in 423 AD in front of a number of witnesses. But I do not believe that is the case. One can still see his trace in the Chronicles, as recently as three hundred years ago. I believe that Methos is still out there, somewhere ready to be found if we can just locate the proper thread and follow it to its natural conclusion.

                                              Research Western Europe
                                              Paris, January 1995

                                              ADDENDUM: I’ve left this tissue of lies and half-truths “huge,bear-like, man,with a deep booming voice”?
                                              Only in your dreams, Pierson!) in the Methos profile, because I think the lies he chose to tell us about himself are as illuminating as the few actual tidbits of truth he wanted to make sure we knew about him. As infuriating as Methos’ infiltration of the Watchers and his “doctoring” of the truth has been to us all, I believe that with careful study, it will reveal as much about the man that I’m sure he’ll wish we never knew. Take for example how careful he is to disprove the Ahaziah-theory-as much as he may want to stay hidden, he is vain about his life and his achievements and can’t bear to have them attributed to another. And there are even a few bones he’s thrown in for us: “later in Ur in the 2nd Millenia BC”- the Watchers currently have no records from this period on any Immortals- “there is evidence to support his presence in Egypt in three separate periods “-we’ve only confirmed evidence of Methos in Egypt in the reign of Merneferre Ay. Now, whether he’s done this to help us out or just jerk our chains remains to be seen. Or maybe he was just bucking to make his alter-ego Adam Pierson “Watcher of the Year.”

                                                To Zoraida, immortality had no meaning, only the beauty of the Quran, the peerless worlds of Allah, the friendship of Haroun al-Rashid (thrice blessed be his name) and of the Western woman, Rebecca (aka Xanthia of Melitus). She lived for her poetry, for the laughs of her friends, the smile of a child (she helped to give birth to many) and took delight in her writing. Then that beast from northern Russia came to Oran, sacked the city and destroyed the world of Zoraida, killing her friends, burning her books, before taking her head.
                                                A noble woman is gone forever, the legacy of Haroun al-Rashid is now extinct with the death of Hamza el-Kahir, and with Iman Fasil having turned to his own darkness.

                                                Even before his First Death, Joshua Boone was mentally ill, hiding his compulsive, depressed behavior behind acts of vandalism and thievery that led him to the gallows when he was framed for the massacre of an entire family, found on the crime scene in a pool of blood. He was hung without a trial and buried in an unmarked grave from which he was dug up by Walter DeGrey, fellow Englishman and savvy player of the Game.

                                                Walter taught Joshua what he could and left him on his own after a few years spent together. Left alone, Joshua went back to his depressed state until his encounter with stonemason John Garrick who told him of a legendary city located somewhere in England where Immortals dwelt: the disenfranchised, the infirm, the ugly, the murderers, all their sins redeemed. While some old chronicles write about the cult of the ancient god Baphomet, held by Immortals, there is no conclusive proof of the existence of “Midian”, the place Garrick referred to and whose legend made its way into the feverish imagination of horror writer Clive Barker.

                                                Or maybe Garrick was referring to St Cristopher? No one knows for sure, but Boone believed in it and spent his immortality searching for “Midian” until he met up with Tabitha Kinsey whom he mistook for a kindred soul because of her misshapen face. Boone didn’t survive his encounter with Tabitha, which is a shame; maybe he could have led up to Midian…

                                                  Even before his First Death, Joshua Boone was mentally ill, hiding his compulsive, depressed behavior behind acts of vandalism and thievery that led him to the gallows when he was framed for the massacre of an entire family, found on the crime scene in a pool of blood. He was hung without a trial and buried in an unmarked grave from which he was dug up by Anthony Bainard, fellow Englishman and savvy player of the Game.
                                                  Anthony taught Joshua what he could and left him on his own after a few years spent together. Left alone, Joshua went back to his depressed state until his encounter with stonemason John Garrick who told him of a legendary city located somewhere where Immortals dwelt: the disenfranchised, the infirm, the ugly, the murderers, all their sins redeemed. While some old chronicles write about the cult of the ancient god Baphomet, held by Immortals, there is no conclusive proof of the existence of “Midian”, the place Garrick referred to and whose legend made its way into the feverish imagination of horror writer Clive Barker.
                                                  Or maybe Garrick was referring to St Cristopher? No one knows for sure, but Boone believed in it and spent his immortality searching for “Midian” until he met up with Tabitha Kinsey whom he mistook for a kindred soul because of her misshapen face. Boone didn’t survive his encounter with Tabitha, which is a shame; maybe he could have led up to Midian…

                                                  To Zoraida, immortality had no meaning, only the beauty of the Quran, the peerless worlds of Allah, the friendship of Haroun al-Rashid (thrice blessed be his name) and of the Western woman, Rebecca (aka Xanthia of Melitus). She lived for her poetry, for the laughs of her friends, the smile of a child (she helped to give birth to many) and took delight in her writing. Then that Moorish beast bearing a Christian name came to Oran, sacked the city and destroyed the world of Zoraida, killing her friends, burning her books, before taking her head. A noble woman is gone forever, the legacy of Haroun al-Rashid is now extinct with the death of Hamza el-Kahir, and with Iman Fasil having turned to his own darkness.
