    From the Tribunal :
    The following is to be entered on the records of the SIS activities

    Finally the old bastar is dead. After fifty years of evading the pursuits of the Secret Immortal Society for his war crimes in the Trenches, in Crimea, in India, in Kenya, for causing the needless death of countless civilians and British officers, of Zulu warriors , of German soldiers during the Great War and WWII, the SIS found his trace, in the heart of Birmingham where he was hiding in plain sight. Helen Bondeville stationed in Birmingham hunted him to the outskirts of the city, where no camera would observe his execution, and put an end to his madness and his fanatism for wars.
    For fifty years European nations have been living in peace, the colonial empires crumbled under their weight, but Colonel Kilian would never change. The last time he nearly lost his head was when Duncan MacLeod hunted him after his execution in 1918, but I guess his time was up this year.

    Alice Ming has been seeing Sean Burns again, the nightmares from her past came back : her First Death and rape in 1832, her investigation of the Connoisseur’s crimes in 1842, the Asian Immortals from the criminal Chinese undergrounds she had to kill over the years, her investigation of the Rape of Nanking, all of this has brought back terrible memories from the past. While this is a tough woman she reached her breaking point and needs her rest. Her best therapy so far is her involvement with the online Chinese community with which she runs non-profit social events in Liverpool’s Chinatown, though this is not enough to alleviate her burgeoning depression.

    First recorded sighting : 1839. Cardiff, Wales

    Black Friar Dafydd Huws
    Background
    Original cultural affiliation : Welsh
    Born : 1937; Carnathen, Wales
    First death : 1969, Taken in quicksands while
    trekking in the forest
    First teacher : N.A
    Known associates : Black Friar mental patients
    First recorded sighting : 1999, 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 1960’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.

    ADJUSTEMENT
    Since I had a little too many deaths in the US Northwest during the 1990's, here are a few Immortals for your Inactive lists. Not that it will make any difference when the Gathering comes...
    As far as the 1990's deaths toll is concerned, there is also the interference of Rita Luce and James Horton's death squad who killed 23 Immortals. 1970's : 126 deaths, 1980's : 156, 1990's : 187 + 23 killed by Watchers;
    2000's : 226, showing how violence is escalating. 2010's so far : 300 with the Immortals War.

    If you asked John Garrick about his mental health problems, he’d be the first to tell you he’s beaten it, he’s cured. Frued thought so. Jung thought so. Even Sean Burns, the noted psychotherapist and his fellow man, is convinced of his recovery I guess you have to be his Watcher, not his shrink, to see that all is still not well in the mind of Garrick the Stonecutter. Some say Garrick has been crazy since he was born, that his lifelong gift of Vision and his insanity both flow from the same dark recess of his mind. But the Chronicles show that for the first 400 years of his life, Garrick was a gentle and loving soul—good husband, good friend- who viewed his gifts of sculpture of Vision, and of immortaliy all as blessings from God, whom he praised through his stonework on churches throughout England. It is only after 1662, with the fiery death of his last wife, Julianna, and his own subsequent burning at the hands of an ignorant and superstitious mob, that his personal demons began to overpower him. And now, after 400 years of first hand knowledge of how mankind treats its insane, Garrick can walk the walk and the talk the talk of sanity. He knows the jargon, he knows the craft of the shrinks. He says he knows how the mind works, and indeed he does. Only, it’s not a healthy mind, he understands—its his own. The danger will come when he decides to use that knowledge.

    In war against US forces with husband Little Robe

    In light of the description of the Bronze Age Methos given by Cassandra to Cleophon of Athens, confirmed by Methos himself – a warrior clad in white, with a skull-shaped mask wearing war paints – one might infer that the mysterious stranger calling himself White Skull, a medecine man in the American West of 1730, may well have been the elusive Methos. The chronicle of Cheyenne immortal Little Robe describes his teacher as speaking with a British accent, sporting a beak-shaped nose and having wreaked havoc on mortal kind ages ago. Methos having been in San Francisco in 1795, where he killed the Celt immortal Vergolix, it is likely he may have mentored Little Robe in South Dakota sixty years before.

    From the Records of the Tribunal
    The Chronicles of Basil Morgan

    They say that during global catastrophes like the Ice Age, megatsunamis, earthquake or the asteroid that wiped the dinosaurs out, only small species no bigger than my hand will survive. I guess that's true, since the dinosaurs left the place to small mamals that later evolved in to Homo Sapiens. I guess the same is true for some immortals : the discret, silent ones, those who know they cannot live by the sword and need to use their brains in order to keep their heads on their shoulders. A good example of this would be Basil Morgan, Amanda's fence from Toronto. Let's take a look at all the dramas and he survived :

    In the middle of the 17th Century, Basil is killed during tenement fire with his wife and adopted child and survive by fleeing to the New Continent, before being able to return to his homeland decades later.
    1866 sees the Great Fire of Chicago and the first sighting of Morgan by a Watcher. A battle had started between Cybelle McWirter (aka Kellistra) and an immortal calling himself "King Minos". The latter's quickening set fire to a barn, a fire which due to a combination of bad luck torched the entire city. The mouse-faced immortal was here, out of the way, and managed to survive.

    In 1912, Basil sailed for New-York on the largest, safest boat ever built by man : the Titaninc. We all know what happened to that boat. Basil became famous for being
    one of three immortals to survive the catastrophe : Amanda, Duncan MacLeod and himself.
    In 1936, Basil is living as a Jewish tailor in Berlin during the Nazis rise to power. He survives by staying out of the way and turning into a cemetery caretaker in Munich until 1942 when he is rounded up by nazi soldiers to be sent to Dachau. Basil killed the soldiers and fled into the night.
    In 1985, Basil Morgan settles in Toronto's Chinatown as a fence, gaining the confidence of immortals such a Amanda, Corey Raines and Viktor Hansen. Scoping out the local underground, he becomes a well-liked fence. Making sure a church or a shrine is in the vicinity and keeping his sword in reach. Surprisingly, Basil survived the end-of-century Gathering when so many immortals felt the urge to kill each other endlessly. But that was close.
    Fifteen years after settling in Toronto, Basil moved to New Orleans where he lived on the border of the law until Erika came around. The Americans had sown the wind with their pollution, their reaped the whirlind. Marie Laveau, Papa Beloved and Basil sTodd their grounds and helped many imperished mortals to survive, all those the US government had left out.

    See ? That's a recurring pattern for the man : a skinny immortal who you wouldn't expect to live out his first decade of immortality and, using his brains, manages to live though three hundred years of perils.

    First death : 1992, Killed with family in car crash
    orchestrated by Hiram Scudder
    First teacher : Hiram Sucdder
    Known past associates : Hiram Sucdder
    First recorded sighting : 1992. Salt Lake City, UT
    Murdered with her family by Scudder who took her
    in as apprentice. Later killed by her

    For two years Sherilynn has been surviving the only way she could think of, making easy money with her youthful charms, knowing she didn’t have to fear std’s or malcontent customers with her two-edged broadsword. By training regularly with the best mortal teachers in town she made serious progress, creating a technique of martial arts move mixed with her swords skills; we do hope she came out of the Immortals War unscathed and that 1994 will see her among us since she was nowhere to be seen on last year’s census.

    Victor : Joe Fujita, CIA

    Margarete Mews became Bascombe's wife during the Civil War years and we find hard to fathom how can two Immortals live in bliss with some much hatred and bitterness in their heart. Some people are made to hate. Margarete contaminated a newbie Immortal in 1910, one Marian Crane who had been murdered by Marcus Korolus a decade before MacLeod took the Roman out of the Game.
    Margarete and Frank groomed the blonde thespian in an active member of the Knights along Carter LeTorve and their later members, Matthias Fagerheim and Harley Rehme.
    They triggered riots in Harem, in Attica, in Los Angeles after the beatign of Rodney King; they helped devellop Ku Klux Klan chapters in the most remote parts of US Southeast; they provided guns and ammos to a dozen private militias, co-funded the National Riffle Association. They burnt churches full of negroes in Alabam, Mississipi, murdered dozens of civil rights activists in the 1960's and 1970's, organised pro-War manifestations in the 1990's and 2000's after the WTC attacks until finally Thomas Morehead asked his
    followers to sanction Bascombe's group. So they did. How ironic is it that they fell to the swords of a Japanese-American, a Cuban, an African-American ! One by one they fell, with Bascombe choosing to go underground until his death by the sword of the Little Dragon in 2007.

    UPDATE

    Restoring a previous Watcher's chronicle, written by DMVtrek, a fanfic author who booslted me into writing more chronicles in 2008;

    Oberlix the Gaul
    Known aliases : Theranaix, Lormet of Orleans
    Notable characteristics : Boots of superhuman
    strenght
    Weapon : Celtic broadsword
    Inconclusive fight against Lalica, 494

    Status
    Most recent base of operations : Orleans
    Kingdom of France
    Occupation : Metal craftman
    Prior occupations : Gallic warrior, mercenary
    Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
    Date : 1248
    Place : Orleans
    Victor : Grayson
    Watcher : Jean the Cobbler

    Background
    Original cultural affiliation : Cisalpine Gauls
    Born : 255 BC; Celtic Gaul, Northern Italy
    First death : 225 BC; Battle of Telamon against
    the Romans
    First teacher : Aganesthos of Tyrins
    Known past associates : Eporedotix, Paul Karros,
    Rutilius Gallicus, Pacatian of Orleans
    Known ennemies : Obelix, Vorlix of Gergovia
    First recorded sighting : 52 BC. Battle of Alesia
    Fighting the Romans with Vorlix and Caratarix,
    aka Methos

    Most have known Obelix as a fierce Celtic warrior, but that was not all their was to him. Reports in all of his chronicles note that he was a happy man who took great joy in life. From the moment his feet hit the floor in the morning he was smiling and whistling. He found great joy in everything he did. He was a cunning warrior, but he was also a gifted metal craftsman. He could turn gold and silver metal into beautiful yet practical tools. He often gifted his students with swords that he handcrafted for them.
    I don’t believe that Grayson knew that Obelix was here when he rode into the village looking for a blacksmith. But when they saw each other a fight was not far behind. Obelix considered both Darius and Grayson as enemies for the attack that destroyed the village he was living in at the time. That was when Grayson and Darius were determined to conquer all of Europe.
    He nearly killed Darius when he ran into to him in Paris. Darius came off holy ground to face Obelix, and told him that he could not and would not fight him. Darius said, “Nothing I do can make up for the pain I have caused you or others that I have harmed. My only way to atone for the wrongs that I have done is to try to live each day in peace and help others. I will not fight you. If you must kill me, than you must do so now.” Obelix would not kill an unarmed man and saw that Darius had truly changed and left. But Grayson was another matter altogether, he was not repentant or apologetic priest living a life of poverty, chastity, and piety. Grayson was an arrogant warlord counting his spoils that he gained from raiding eastern kingdoms in the name of Christianity. Obelix fought valiantly but Grayson was better, and so ends the chronicle of Obelix of Gaul.

        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 before returning to Western Africa where Xavier St. Cloud boasted to have killed them.

        Frank Bascombe

        Frank Bascombe,relatively new to the Game but already a savy swordfighter and collector of heads. His M.O is to settle in a place known for its population of immortals, take his time, settle in a mortal activity and then start counting the immortals living in the city. When he's done counting, Bascombe starts hunting for non-white immortals. He cheats : he compensates his poor swordfighting skills with stun gun, tear gaz, pouch of powder, anything; and when his quarry is weakened, he goes for the kill. Each decade sees a city depopulated from non-caucasian immortals : Southern Africa in the 1900's, Western Africa in the 1910's, North Africa in the 1920's and so on.

        From each immortal he killed, Bascombe took a souvenir : an Inca gold mak from Diego Cristobal, a short sword from Muhammad of Algiers, a spear from Colette Ougounbo. Because he was raised in Boer culture where white people held rascist views toward black and other-colored people, Bascombe makes a point on targeting only non-caucasian immortals : Black, Chinese, Italian, Slavic, Jewish etc.. All fall to his sword, because the bastard believes in eithnic cleansing among the immortals. His homes of Aspen, Johannesburg and Seattle are full of the mementos he picked from his quarries and bear testimony to the many cultures that white men eradicated from the surface of the earth for the past centuries.

        Frank was a disciple of Thomas Morehead at about the same time as Oskar Felder but never joined with the Combined Immortals of America, choosing other pursuits, as co-founder of the Ku Klux Klan.

        He was a beast ! A real psycho ! A murderer and he really had it in for the Lightning woman. Fifty years ago he raped her and mutilated her after murdering her friends and family in barbaric ways, using techniques that no civilized man would dare to use. Then he hunted her down across the United States after terrorizing her.But gentle Chrystle has her bite, the spirits of her ancestors runs wild into her and she can be one savage hellion when needs be. She chose her ground, her weapon and faced what was to come, avenging the murder of her family.Nothing is known about Donald Black Bear, exept for his identity and his taste for cannibalim and ritualistic murders. No trace is to be found about him in the chronicles, aside an ancient story about how James Coltec the Hayoka fought a demon-bear to a standstill six hundred years ago, in what is today known as Illinois.The Black Bear used to be a powerful immortal, skillful to destroy innocent lives; Coltec apparently failed to kill him, so it was another Native American who had to do the job centuries later.

        Ray is finally dead, after one hundred years of fighting for survival : first against the white man of the mortal kind, and then of the immortal kind. Ray had for him his huge strength and body mass, his anger that earned him the nickname of "charging buffazloo" : an enraged animal having to live in the wilderness. Killing to survive. He took out three immortals before Henry of Kent got wind of three non-players of the Game found beheaded, and as he always does started trailing their killer, but Kol T'ek got to him first and that's as well : only a Native American ought to give final peace to a fellow Native Immortal

When finally Koriand and his friends escaped the City of Z the Apostate came after them and sanctioned them all with extreme prejudice.The Order of Sacred Knowledge finally moved out fo the Matto Grosso and settled in Southern Greece, having stayed there for the past three decades.

        From the Records of the Tribunal
        The Chronicles of Basil Morgan

        They say that during global catastrophes like the Ice Age, megatsunamis, earthquake or the asteroid that wiped the dinosaurs out, only small species no bigger than my hand will survive. I guess that's true, since the dinosaurs left the place to small mamals that later evolved in to Homo Sapiens. I guess the same is true for some immortals : the discret, silent ones, those who know they cannot live by the sword and need to use their brains in order to keep their heads on their shoulders. A good example of this would be Basil Morgan, Amanda's fence from Toronto. Let's take a look at all the dramas and he survived :
        1866 sees the Great Fire of Chicago and the first sighting of Morgan by a Watcher. A battle had started between Cybelle McWirter (aka Kellistra) and an immortal calling himself "King Minos". The latter's quickening set fire to a barn, a fire which due to a combination of bad luck torched the entire city. The mouse-faced immortal was here, out of the way, and managed to survive.
        In 1912, Basil sailed for New-York on the largest, safest boat ever built by man : the Titaninc. We all know what happened to that boat. Basil became famous for being one of three immortals to survive the catastrophe : Amanda, Duncan MacLeod and himself.
        In 1985, Basil Morgan settles in Toronto's Chinatown as a fence, gaining the confidence of immortals such a Amanda, Corey Raines and Viktor Hansen. Scoping out the local underground, he becomes a well-liked fence. Making sure a church or a shrine is in the vicinity and keeping his sword in reach. Surprisingly, Basil survived the end-of-century Gathering when so many immortals felt the urge to kill each other endlessly. But that was close.
        That's a recurring pattern for the man : a skinny immortal who you wouldn't expect to live out his first decade of immortality and, using his brains, manages to live through one hundred and ffity years.

        • Managed to get a wi-fi signal while on holiday with a spare half hour to browse your latest updates. I really enjoyed them, especially the latest exploits of The Apostate and the Koriand Expedition Immortals. It makes one wonder how many other missing Immortals simply went looking where they weren't supposed to and fell foul of the Order's cleaner...?

          Btw do you have the chronicles of the Immortals on the Koriand Expedition, and also those of the Immortals experimented on and murdered by Nikola Tesla?

          Cheers

          • The Apostate sancioned a lot of Immortals over the years.
            Here are the stories you wanted.

            Encounter with Catherine Beckett

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

            ADDENDUM

            The expedition led by Professor Koriand discovered the Order of Sacred Knowledge living in the Lost City fo Z, their temple and safe haven. The order couldn't let them go with with their lives, their anonimity now compromised so in a gesture of kindness, offered the six Immortals to serve them and stay with them, away from the Game... or else (else being the watchful Apostate). When finally Koriand and his friends escaped the City of Z the Apostate came after them and sanctioned them all with extreme prejudice.The Order of Sacred Knowledge finally moved out fo the Matto Grosso and settled in Southern Greece, having stayed there for the past three decades.

            Dying from paludism is in itself a metaphysical experiment : like being possessed by bad spirits who make you discover in yourself an abyss of cold darkness while your body is ravaged by fevers making you feel as is you were transported from the Sahel to Siberia. No matter how you are being covered to keep you warm, the cold is intense and coming from inside, turning you inside out, killing you after days and days of burning fever.When Lisa Mafamy eventually recovered, she had actually ded with her entire village, surrounded with the corpses of her friends and family. The only living person by her side was immortal Sekou Nrumah who sensed her new immortality while he was attending to the dying villagers.
            There was nothing else he could have done. Sekou trained Lisa well and helped her join another clan in Sudan and taught her how to keep in touch with her clan's descendants.

            Philbert Kangeshe played the Game in the 1960’s and when he crossed Sembagare, we knew one of those two men wouldn’t leave the field of battle with his head intact. Sembagare was a good person, a fierce protector of endangered species who was once hunted by Martin Hyde who hoped that his quarry would take him to Olapede Chukwu. There is no doubt that had not Sembagare lost Hyde in the jungle, the old Englishman would have been soundly defeated by Chukwu.

She never heard from his again but remembers the strange love story between herself and a native savage who turned out to be a more human and decent human beign than the mortal she chose to marry in 1805.

            1939 : the Red Army invades eastern portions of Poland stating the protection of Ukrainians and Belarusians as their operation's primary goal and Poland's "seizure to exist" as the justification of the action.
            Grigori Sitchenko is reporting the ongoing invasion as wxell as reportign hte atrocities comitted by the Germans against civilias, the executions and reprisals.
            The USSR started a campaign against Finland, known as the Winter War (1939–40). The war took a heavy death toll on the Red Army, the Six of Vinland found themselves facing the BMR but both group decided to avoid each other. Sitchenko found himself between the two factions, writing on the war against Finland, carefully omitting any details pertaining to immortal activity.
            Axis forces led by Germany swept across the Soviet border on June 22, 1941. By the autumn the German army had seized Ukraine, laid a siege of Leningrad, and threatened to capture the capital, Moscow, itself. Nicholas Kuchinka defended Ukraine as best as he could, while his Russian colleagues put up the best front possible in Moscow.
            Vera and Vasily Dionisy fought and killed two German immortals trying to capture Moscow, their only witness being Sitchenko who simply wrote around a powerful lightning storm which set fire to several partsof the city.
            By the end of 1943, the Red Army had broken through the German siege of Leningrad and liberated much of Ukraine, much of Western Russia and moved into Belarus. By the end of 1944, the front had moved beyond the 1939 Soviet frontiers into eastern Europe. Soviet forces drove into eastern Germany, capturing Berlin in May 1945. The war with Germany thus ended triumphantly for the Soviet Union but not for hte unfortunate Sitchenko who mysteriously disappearedn his body found decapitated in e suburban home, later discovered as having belongd to Nikola Tesla.

            The Fenian Brotherhood was an Irish republican organization founded in the United States in 1858 by John O'Mahony and Michael Doheny. It was a precursor to Clan na Gael, a sister organization to the Irish Republican Brotherhood. Members were commonly known as "Fenians". O'Mahony, who was a Celtic scholar, named his organization after the Fianna, the legendary band of Irish warriors led by Fionn mac Cumhaill.
            Had Finnegan been mentored by Annie Devlin upon his First Death, he would have stayed an ardent patriot and maybe would stil keep his head on his shoulders. Instead, he was mentored by Hugh O'Neil, a man who mentored Devlin and abandoned the ways of nationalism and terrorism for peace between Northern Ireland and Great Britain. O'Neil convinced Seamus that his ways were wrong and told him that Ireland would never achieve peace with guns. So Seamus became a peace activist and unfortunately was captured by agents of Nikola Tesla who took his head, as part of his gruesome experiments on Immortals and Quickenings.

With Jews of Norway being gassed immediately upon arrival in the death camps, our best guest is he got murdered immediately upon arrival, his body to be burnt beyong recovery in a crematorium. This is a safe guest, however he could have recovered before the arrival to the ovens and then been subjected to medical experimentation like that other immortal in Auschwitz. We cannot be sure since his Watcher was also arrested and reported M.I.A

            The Ten Tigers of Canton were a group of ten Chinese martial artists from Guangdong (Canton), China who lived in the late Qing Dynasty (1644–1912). They were said to be the best fighters in southern China at the time. Much of their existence has been embellished by folk legends and stories passed down from generation to generation. All of them were immortals, gathering as one single unit to become supernatural heroes of China in the neverending war of good vs evil. While their stories were embellished, they were a squabbling, rag-tag band of misfits who got killed by the Game one by one until only two remained by the time of the Immortals War.

            Wong Ching-Hoh and his twin brother Yan-Lam fought the British forces during the Second Opium War in 1860, they became the two firt of the group to be killed by the Immortal Maiden.
            In 1885,

            Wong Kei-Ying joined the Black Flag Army during revolutionary war against the French Empire; he challenged a French soldier named François Marchette and lost his head.

            Lai Yan-chiu retired from the Game in Lhasa, Tibet, where he was confronted and killed by one of the group's major enemies,Immortal Maiden during the 1929 invasion of Tibet by China.

            Leung Kwan joined the Tongs by the early 20th century, become their most feared and trusted lieutnants, until he was killed in battle by May-Ling Shen in 1959

            So Chan disguised his activities as a vigilante behind a facade of permanent drunkenness and was targeted by huntress Krimkaj Chamlong in 1962

            So Hark-fu was one of the immortals kidnapped by Nikola Tesla's henchmen and subjected to painful electrical experiments before Tesla mercifully took his head in 1967. He had become a martial arts instructor, trying to keep the Ten Tigers legacy thriving.

            Chow Tai was last seen in Canada, a Lieutnant of the Canadian reserve army, training local guerillas to resist Japan Imperial army occupation. He was killed in 1944 by Matsuhiro Kanagawa.

            Chan Cheung-Tai, better known as Chang or Wayne Chang, became an amoral mercenary and assassin eventually joined the international group HISS before being invovled in the Immortals War. He died in 2012 against Kir Bulchyev of the Immortals of Mother Russia.

            Tam Chai-kwan was last seen in Cordoba, Spain, in 2012 where he fought his last battle against Radu Cozma.

            Civilian refugee fleeing persecutions in Burma,
            found and mentored by Khadiga while seeking the
            company of a prostitute in Daulatdia

            In 2017, Khadiga felt the presence of an Immortal in the brothel-city, but that wasn’t one of the women or one of the girls working in the place, rather a customer not aware of his own Immortality who had been killed recently durign the persecutions against his minority, Karim Raschid, a Rohingya Muslim from Burma. Khadiga took him apart and had to explain to the disbelieving man the rules of Immortal life and the Game, the Gathering. Not all persecuted minorities produce innocent people with goodness in their hearts ! Karim Raschid likes young women, even young girls, and he makes the most of it in the brothel-town of Daulardia. Barely one year in Immortality, we do not expect him to live out the decade as he is too busy with girls to think about training with the sword. Not that Khadiga who found him ever bothered to train him seriously. She is too busy catering to the girls and to the women and she has few sympathies for the men who take advantage of their living conditions. Eventually, she disposed of the man discreetly, immortal-style.

              Jong Dong-Hong, in those days a mercenary sword

              What a fierce little fighter she was ! No challenge too little or too big for her ! After provoking every capable fighterss of Korea, Lim Jao-hee decided her homeland was too little for her, little fish, so she went swimming in bigger ponds, no even afraid of the sharks playing games she could never fathom. To her, the Far East was her playground and she only wanted to entertain herself, to relive herself from the crushing boredom of immortals life. And what better way to do so than playing the Game ? The difference beign that she never killed her quarries, like those fishermen who let their preys fell, she kissed and jumped on her male opponents after defeating them, giving them the night of their life. She was lucky didn't didn't cross swords with the like of Matsuhuro Kanagawa in Japan, or she would have finished her travels in Japan. Her untimely death against Safiya Khan in China has been proven wrong by Eastern Asia research.

                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, before moving to Braga, Portugal where he was located by Maria Do Carmo Correja’s Watcher.

                Fu Kang-ho keeps oit of the Game, though he has been a very good one in the first centuries of his life. A Beijing businessman, he plays games on the board of trustees, his sharpest weapon is his tongue and his knoack at using Laws as help in the world of banking and financing. The remnants of the People’s Protectorate put pressure on him to recruit him in their covenant, a good position for him they said, with links to government officials, but Fu doesn’t care. He warned them to stay clear from his because he may be retired from the Game, but his Quing dynasty saber is still sharp and deadly in his hand. Not a good idea to antagonize a group like that which is why he settled in Abuja, Nigeria, joining the local Chinese community.

                Yao Chan, July 2012

                After one year here in Abuja, Fu Kang-ho got wind of the People’s Protectorate’s passing and suddenly the Immortal packed his back and went back to Beijing, leaving his business to his Nigerian associates. I thnki he was as much relieved of the Zodiac Immortals’ passing as he was of going back the China.

                I heard about the dreaded Dark Quickening that turns a good immortal over to the forces of darkness, it consummates them utterly. I also heard of the Wendigo legend, the dark beast posessing those who commit the ultimate sin before the eyes of God : eating human flesh. Even under harsh conditions like beign trapped in a snow storm, it is a sin, it goes against every rules of the civilized world. And I wonder if the Wendigo truly posses him or if at some point Matthieu Devost killed an Immortal after a fight we aren’t aware of and was possessed by the Immortal’s power. Once a decent fellow, Devost became a crazed killer, leaving a trail of dismemebered bodies behind him. Matthew of Salibury was after him, I heard.
                Appius Lepidus Baro also was on the trail of Devost, but Donald Black Bear got to him first, later proving to be possessed by the Wendigo like Devost before him. Black Bear is on the loose but I shudder when I think of an ancient and powerful immortal like Baro under the thrall of a Dark Quickening with the unnatural hungers possessing the mind of Devost, and now of Black Bear.

                • DEATHS LISTS 2000-2018
                  A tad too many deaths in the last eighteen years, those characters are interestign enough to deserve another go. This postponees the final Gathering to the next twenty years at least. And who knows how many more characters we will create in the near future ? (wink!)

                  And before you ask, the Immortals War remains untouched. God knows I reworked it enough to make it a coherent, interestign story !

                  This day, I must close the Chronicle of my charge, the great poet Solomon ben Judah, who vanished two years ago in Damascus. For those past two years I have been relentlessly looking for him but to no avail. Solomon is missing, possibly killed facing one of the immortals living in Damascus circa 1851 : Farid al'Zafir, Iman Fasil, Isra of Algiers.
                  Solomon was an outstanding poet and writer in medieval Spain and was fortunate enought tot be mentored in poetry by Achilles of Troy himself who latter taught him swordsmanship when he was murdered by a jealous rival. During eight hundred years, Solomon illuminated the Middle East and Renaissance-era Europe with his poetry, how fortunate the mortals were to know such a poet ! And what greatness he gave to the world ! I live in the hope that Solomon didn't die against one of the Damascus immortals and that he is living peacefully somewhere away from the Game.

                  Zabibah of Qedar
                  Recorded kills : None known

                  Zabibah re-appeared on the Immortals Scene which she may never have left, 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.

                  Gordon Byrne learnt a lot of things in Japan under Ninja Master Kintaro, aka Hattori Hanzo, and brought his knowledge of the Nija world to Africa where he shaped and trained his own commando of Africa-born ninja assassins who performed political assassinations for ten years in various African republics, the last of which right in the middle of the Congo Civil War. Estelle Malembo was operating in Brazzaville in Congo and faced Byrne’s commando, but this is a woman trained in jungle guerillas and she did quite well against Gordon Byrne’s men before finally tracking him down to his lair where he was nowhere to be found.

                  For Marc Mariano it was a difficult task to put Argentina people in front of the sordid past of slave trade but not impossible, after all the Afro-Argentinas weren’t born in Latin America, they had been victims of deportation and massacres as much as the Jews in Europe. Mark worked hard and made a lot of ennemies among people who ddn’t want to be remembered.

                  Once thought killed by Frank Bascombe in 2007, Steven Crowe is back in the Game, gun-toting and with few respect for the rules of the Game. He fights with abandon, using tactics he developped in the battlefields of Middle Eastern and Latin American countries and while he doesn’t hope to be The One, he certainly tries his best to outlive the 21st century.

                  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.

                  encounter with James François, at this time a
                  writer reporting on sports event s attended by
                  women

                  Christiane has done very well in the Game, as well as putting her mark in the history of women in sports, pionnering the career of many women in activities such as horseriding, boxing, balloon flight, ice skating, volley bal and many others, showing to a male world that women have been worthy competitors ever since Kynista, a Spartian princess, won a race in the Olympic Games of 396 BC. One of the few immortal women to survive in the Game, Christiane had to fight off the utter contempt and hatred of countless men (both mortals and immortals) who viewed her as nothing more than target practice. The 'target practice' had centuries to hone her skills and to make herself a wel-deserved place in the world and might surprise everybody when she finds herself among the last surviors who will fight to the finish for the legendary Prize. In any case, she will be remembered as the immortal woman who had Nike gave her name to an ew brand of running shoe, the 'Swoopes Shoe'.

                  Christianne Krause wanted to put her mark on the 2017 Marathon of London and she was quite a success, finishing among the twenty first runners, but the Game is ever-present and when she faced Grant Makim she was already exhausted after so much runnings. She offered to answer his challenge later, but Grant is a relentless killer who knows no delay. Christianne was one of the best fighters in the Game but somehow even the best lose their fire after centuries of playing. When she killed Fernao Gonçalves in Brazil, she decided ot retire from the Game. Grant Makim wouldn’t allow her some peace and he proved the best with a sword when he faced the Austrian woman. Fortunately, mortals interfered and he was forced to leave, snarling and swearing a rematch.

                  In the Game, the first victim is innocence, the innocence of children killed too soon, reborn to hunt or be hunted. Kenneth, Bossart, the Coyoteros are prime example of it as is Pilar Gonçalves from England who was taught by Jade el-Amin to use her innocent features as an advantage. Jade and Amanda were similar in all things, including the manner they mentored youg immortals. Trickery, deceit, lies, murder. Ever since her first death, Pilar has been killing her fair shaire of immortals, a lot of them wanting to use her, but some who weren’t evil. Still she killed, little by little becoming like Kenneth. Her last quarry was Harry Houdini the master escapist who saw clearly through her game and wasn’t above killing an immortal woman hiding behind the face of an innocent child. When Pilar saw her game was up she vanshied in a puff of smoke, litterally : a trick taught by Jade el-Amin.

                  Nazi occupation, shot by Waffen SS soldiers,
                  evacuated from Norway by Bjorn Gustavson


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

                  Beauties after he lost his fortune during Crach of
                  Wall Street

                  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 beware : Kobayashi the vigilante is on the look out for any Immortal living on the fringes of the Law.

                  Found and mentored by Ruth

                  In 1987, the First Intifada (uprising) of the Palestinian people took place in Cisjordania and in the Gaza Bank against the state of Israel; its repression caused 1300 dead among the Palestinians, thousands of wounded,and led to the relaunch of peace negociations between Israel and Palestine in 1993. Since those negocations proved Inconclusive, a second Intifada erupted in 2000, and this time the Palestinians used less pacifical means to demonstrate their anger toward Israel's regimen : guns, bombs and suicide attacks were used, while Israel lauched a full-scale war on the Palstinians, including assassinations on knows activists. In 2001, the Second Intifada made 859 Palestinian victims and 185 on Israel side. Among the Israelians, a minor immortal : Colonel Alan Ish-Shalom, killed with three other Israeli officers by a suicide bomber, while he was on assignment to 'pacify' the region of Ascalon, actually secretly charged with killing two important figures of Palestinian activism. He may have not been beheaded but his severe wounds put him out of comission for a long time.

                  • In the Bronze Age, there existed powerful villains such as the Kurgan and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. But there were also heroes.
                    Around 1000 BC, in the Kingdom of David, ancient Israel, Immortal Dyonisius the Aeropagite gathered a cadre of Immortal men (and women disguised as men) to champion the Kingdom of David and protect their king. David is the young shepherd who challenged and killed the giant Goliath and was protected by Dyonisius from an early age before becoming a favorite of King Saul. In adulthood h became king, conquered Jersualem and took the Ark of the Covenant into the city, those deeds acompnished with the help of twelve powerful Immortal warriors.
                    While several texts down the ages state that "King David 's Mighty Warriors" numbered between 37 to 53, there was a core of twelve Immortals, plus Dyonisius, under the identity of Eleazar Ben Dodai, who trained and supervised 25 to 41 more men, all mortals… or otherwise, i.e pre-Immortals or Immortals. Watcher Research allows to identify the following Immortals as Dyonisius's Mighty Warriors as well as describe the different and separate fates befalling them.
                    The Mighty Warriors also took a stand against the Four Horsemn after their leader, Kronos, killed a close associate of Dyonisios, Abraham of Ur, a community leader and an ancient Immortal.

                    Esarhaddon, possibly killed by the Four Hosemen

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

                    Zenobia mentioned him as his student in
                    conversation with Methos

                    During the Iron Age, Ekron was a border city on the frontier contested between Philistia and the kingdom of Judah. Records of the Neo-Assyrian Empire also refer to Ekron. The siege of Ekron in 712 BCE is depicted on one of Sargon II's wall reliefs in his palace at Khorsabad, which names the city.
                    Records of Bostar's existence are due to Zenobia's conversation with Methos at the time of the Bronze Age collpse when sea-faring marauders led by the Four Horsemen brought about the end of the Hittite, Mycenaean and Mitanni kingdoms. Ramesses III (whom Methos served at this time) comments about the scale of the Sea Peoples' onslaught in the eastern Mediterranean, stating that it was less military operations than movements of large populations, by land and sea, seeking new lands to settle, terrorized as they were by the Horsemen. As for Bostar, he has been cross-identified in Memnet-Ra's journals as a quarry of Tizkar of Sumer.

                    Chamada's mark of note was to have been killed during the conquest of Syria by Muslim Arabs led by pre-immortal Khalid ibn al-Walid (aka Hamza El-Kahir). She was beheaded in duel by Lalica who suffered a personality alteration from the heavy Quickening she received, turning her into an agressive player of the Game. Like Lalica, she hid her feminine beauty behind male garbs ans usually avoided fighting those of her kind, preferring to let the Game be handled by younger immortals such as Lalica.

                    When he challenged me to a fight, he found how a Horseman can deal sore losers and tried to recoil from the fight, but I wasn’t in the mood to let this slide and I went for he kill. I don’t regret not having spared his head, this was an Immortal with a solid reputation as a player of the Game who knew what he risked when he challenged others of his kind, and if I hadn’t taken his head, it would have been some other Immortal to be sure.

                    conversation between Xanthia of Melitus and
                    Marcus Constantine, reported killed by ‘the God of time’

                    Xanthia of Miletus once referrered to the fabled Samson, killer of Philistines with an ass’ jaw, as a fellow immortal and one murdered by the God of Time (in her own words). These tantalizing words allow us to probe in the origins of Samson the Israelite and to cook up a bio for him, albeit incomplete.
                    With Kronos often referring to himself as the God of Time it was easy to pin the blame of Samson’s death on the former Horseman – what a formidable immortal for him to kill ! – and to find a likely corcuimstance of First Death for him, when he angrily brought down a Phillistine temple with his bare force muscles and force of will. All the rest is only conjectural, no mentions of him have been found in the Ancient Chronicles archives sop far, but we do hope to build a more completeChronicle for the man once defeated by the sensual and dangerouns Delilah.

                    The ancient immortal Haiim of the Twelfth tribe several times referenced to his teacher as being ‘Yonathan the Israelite’, an Hebrew soldier who met his First Death defending the precious Ark of the Covenant from the Philistines in 1050 BC, thus marking him as an historically significant immortal. Although his chronicle is rather sparse, as are the chronicles of ancient immortals, who may place his final death in 620 BC in the Kingdom of Judea when Ahaziah of Ramoth-Gilead challenged him for reasons lost in time and killed him.
                    The tale of his final battle and of his fights against Artamanya of Ascalon and Natupolassor were found in ancient scrolls, carefully preserved for posterity along the centuries. However, we are only sure of the year of his final death. Also, given the name he chose for himself as ‘Ben Abraham’ (son of), we may ascertain that he was mentored by the legendary Abraham of Ur, a Mesopotamian immortal born in the early Bronze Age of the Far East.

                    Research in the fortress of Mamnet-Ra allowed to find clues on the existence of six more immortals from truly ancient times, including two disciples of Oromedon of Urkesh and a songstress; the keeper of the Ark of the Covenant also related to Xanthia of Miletus; a chief of archers in Babylon related to the legendary Natupolassor; the first harlot in immortals history and a homewrecker andfinally a Kassite immortal briefly mentioned in an erarlier chronicle of Methos.
                    Those five immortals are recorded as missing because there are no clues on their final fates, though we can guess they must have been targeted by Memnet-Ra and/or by Tizkar of Sumer.

                    Rabbi Haiim sensed the presence of the Chameleon woman naming herself Ibn al-Talia, after the last immortal she challenged and killed. Knowing the reputation of the woman, he sought him out, on this most sacred of place - a holy city ! - and gave his challenge. My heart is divided : as a woman, the exploits of the Chameleon fill my heart with pride, as a Watcher, I tremble for the life of my charge : Haiim is a fighter, but also one of the oldest of his kind, at least two thousand years old, and thus a most important immortal.
                    One who witnessed the rise and fall of the Pharaohs of Egypt, who challenged the ancient Xanthia of Miletus - "Rebekah" - to whom he gave his true name in ancient Hebrew - Haiim "the living".
                    Haiim has been a traveller and a fighter for centuries, a prodigy of the sword, a force to be reckoned with : he clashed swords with the Kurgan, studied philosophy with the wise Tak Ne of Egypt, fought the Romans side by side with the great Gideon. Surely he will not lose in battle against that upstart who keeps stealing the names, clothes and swords of those she kills.
                    I am waiting, as all Watchers are boung to do, praying for the voctory of the great Haiim.

                    In 728 BC, Jamshed of Assyria was challenged to a fight by Magog of Ashur, whose final death by the blade of 'Orpheus' was well-documented. Since Orpheus wasn't the killer of Magog, it impled that Orpheus's murdered couldn't be Iphigenia either which allowed Watcher historians to place the immortal Proteus as the culprit behind those immortals deaths. Jamshed was a mercenary sword in Armenia at the time of his death and his last word, before his head fell were 'your turn next day, shapechanger !' Proteus was thus recorded as having killed seven immortals, each time taking their identities. Case closed.

                    There is a brief mention in the scrolls of Memnet-Ra’s journals of how he offered a postion to Menuas of Urartu as a member of the Zodiac Brotherhood and was denied by the proud immortal who stated that he would never betray Inyotef and Magos of Ur. Memnet-Ra laughed at him and stated that soon the heads of Magos and Inyotef would roll – indeed they did in the middle of the 6th century BC – and his dominion over mortal kind would be insured. Menual challenged the Egytpian immortal, feeling confident in his sword skills but was overmatched by the ancient Egyptian. We do not know much about Menuas, but Magos and Inyotef wanted to bond with any ancient immortal they could find in the Near East coutnries in order to create an alliance against the ever-growing influence of Memnet-Ra over the immortals of the known world, even as few in numbers as they were. Eventually, it is Achilles of Troy who suceeded in doing this with the immortals he gathered in a bid to take Ra’s operatiosn down wxhen he took the Zodiac Brotherhood out in 203 BC.

                    When savage warrior Beadwhyrd of Ely killed the mysterious monk of Trent in 679, somehting must have happened to his psyche because he discarded his weapons his armors, forsook n entire lifetime of warfare and secluded himself in a monastery, never to play the Game again - with the expection of that Saxon knight in 745, legitimate defense of his monk brothers. The incident of 679 is akin to the experience lived by Darius and others of their kind over the centuries : were a Dark Quickening turns heroes into rempaging villains, 'Light Quickenings' turn warriors and villains into men of peace, seemingly. While the DQ incidents have been proven conclusively to exist, the LQs are so far based on theories, yet viable ones. We shall never know, unlike with Darius, how Beadwhyrd would have evolved over the centuries thanks to the interference of Ragnar Danneskjold, the accursed Viking who raided Lindsfarne Monastery, killined al present, desecretated the place and finally took thehead of the Briton immortal. And the so-called Light Quickening wasn't even passed on Ragnar, he remained a villain and plunderer through and through.

The King tried to hide his adultery by having Urriah abandon his position beside him and re-join his wife so they could sleep together, thus passing the child as Urriah's but Urriah's was on the frontline in wartime, and his honor commanded him to not leave his position.The infuriated king ordered his men to stay clear from Urriah and thus sentenced him to death. It was a temporary death for Urriah who came back from the field of battle to ravaged the kingdom, causing many deaths, including the King's child, David asked God forgiveness by touching the Ark of the Covenant, and thus a miracle came : the drought stopped as if it neaver had been. As for Urriah, he left the Kingdom, never to be seen again while his treacherouus wife eloped with King David and later born him a legitimate son who became King Solomon.

                    In 480 BC, before he mentored the great Cleophon of Athens, Mepholus fought an Inconclusive fight against the immortal Kaushmalaku, a warrior of undetermined background who ended his chronicle against Kyra of Spartan Thermopylae, during the Roman-Syrian war. Metopholus was a likely identity of Methos, sicne Kaushmalaku adressed to him as ‘Death on a Horseback’ after some ancient scroll found in Aia Minor, depicting the incident.

                    conversation between Prophet Elijah and
                    Anatellon, 1st century AD

                    Two hundred years before Amalettu the first Watcher started writing the chronicle of the legendary Gilgamesh, there were few immortals walking the earth, whose existence are to be found recorded in tiny and obscure fragments of carefully preserved chronicles : Inyotef, the oldest immortal of Egypt, Methos the oldest living immortal and Abraham of Ur who allegedly survived the great flood in times when Ur was the richest city in Sumer. This would be in 2807 BC, at a time a comet-triggered megatsunami ravaged entire parts of the known world.
                    Legends want Abraham to have survived this terrible flood and transmitted the Stone of Methuselah from one immortal to another; until it landed in the hands of Aganesthos and then of Xanthia of Melitus. According to Xanthia (known to us as Xanthia of Melitus), Abraham of Ur did exist and safeguarded the stone of Methuselah for posterity when the comet hit, according to what Rebecca disclosed to her most trusted students.
                    The other proof we have of Abraham’s existence is a conversation between Prophet Elijah and the young Greek immortal Anatellon when Anatellon asked who was the oldest immortal : Elijah mentioned that Abraham of Ur certainly was the oldest confirmed, forgetting one named Methos and possibly ignoring the existicence of Inyotef.

                    • Hello, my friend! I'm back off holiday and looked forward to reading your latest updates. Once again, an outstanding job. Lots of interesting stories, but i particularly enjoyed the tales of the ancient Immortals who served King David, especially their ultimate fates. Some nice twists and turns there that i got a kick out of.

                      I've been going through my old files and i'll post the names of the Immortals i still have as active/inactive which are no longer on the updated lists. If you could help with the updates on those Immortals it would be much appreciated, thanks…

                      In the meantime, here's the first instalment of my next project for your perusal...

                      THE CHRONICLE OF ROMAN ALVAREZ

                      Eufemio Arispana

                      Age: 249
                      Known aliases: Edilbarto Agia
                      Notable characteristics: Air of arrogance;
                      misogynistic
                      Weapon: Tizona sword

                      Status
                      Most recent base of operations: Valladolid,
                      Kingdom of Castile
                      Occupation: Wealthy landowner, married into
                      a rich family
                      Prior occupations: Nobleman
                      Roster of Immortals Status: Deceased
                      Date: 13 June 1452
                      Place: Valladolid
                      Victor: Roman Alvarez
                      Watcher: Martin Dominguez

                      Background
                      Original cultural affiliation: Catalan Spanish
                      Born: 1203, Pamplona, Kingdom of Navarre
                      First death: 1241; Murdered by the husband of a
                      woman he had flogged to death for refusing to sleep
                      with him
                      First teacher: Gris of Armagnac
                      Known associates: None
                      Known past associates: Gris of Armagnac

                      First recorded sighting: 1241, Pamplona.
                      Dug up from his makeshift grave by Gris of
                      Armagnac, told of the Game, and swore to one
                      day help Gris free Gascony from its French masters.

                      Roman Alvarez’s first recorded kill was the arrogant misogynist Eufemio Arispana, a prancing peacock whose self-importance caused him to look down his nose at anyone he deemed not in his social strata. At the time of his encounter with the dashing Spaniard Alvarez, Arispana was in an arranged marriage with a young mortal girl, daughter of a powerful nobleman, who Alvarez seduced behind his back. The girl, Amira, was treated badly by Arispana, beaten daily, and found solace in the arms of Alvarez who promised to steal her away to safety. But Arispana had spies among the servants and learned of his wife’s plan to leave him. Her body was found at the bottom of a staircase the next day and he payed off the local magistrate to declare the death an accident.
                      But Alvarez, who abhorred violence against women (he was even known to refuse to fight female Immortals), sought revenge and one evening a few days later, he snuck into Arispana’s bed chamber and confronted the arrogant Immortal. If Arispana believed his social status would help him prevail he was soon proven wrong; Alvarez had been trained by a master swordsman and soon had Arispana on his knees. Even in his last moments he refused to believe someone not even of noble blood could defeat him. Once again, Roman Alvarez proved him wrong.

                      From the Chronicle of Roman Alvarez

                      • Hello Apollo, glad you liked my little yarns and gazillion updates lol Good story with Alvarez's first kills; Gascony - originally belongintg ot the Basque - was torn apart between the English and the French in the 13th and 14th century and was once under the tutelage of Spain before going back to France in 1453. It has been French ever since. Was Gris of Armagnac Basque ?
                        IMO Roman ought to have his kills in countries of the Spanish Empire which started developing between the 16th and 18th century. Mexico, South America etc..

                        I am also posting the definite list of all deleted/ merged / recycled Immortals from my lists. I hope this helps clear your lists for the deceased Immortals on your lists.

                        I am also posting the complete listing for M.I.A Immortals on further posts.

                        Cheers !

                          Laurent Kaliganshe has been running from the Game by hiding in some of the most dangerous places in the world as a

                          mines worker. He hasn’t done anything else in one century of Immortality. An Immortal prone to hide behind many walls, he

                          is an insecure mouse in fear of the wildcat prawning for prey, so his instincts just tell him to hide and cower in the only

                          familiar environment he feels safe in. May 2013 saw his untimely disappearance after a mineshaft collapse, but we don’t

                          believe him dead, his body wasn’t found among the victims. We expect him to resurface soon, so to speak.

                          Sifu Makolé has been hunted down in 2003 with his people by soldiers to be killed and eaten so as to clear the area for

                          mineral exploitation, this is among the countless atrocities perpetrated against the Pygmee people including mass murder

                          and mass rapes. The Pygmee chieftain survived the Game by remaining hidden in the rainforest of Congo but no safe haven

                          is safe forever and sooner or later the Game catches up with everyone. Bassala Imbako is suspected of having killed Sifu,

                          having participated in recent massacres in Congo as a soldier of the Movement for the
                          Liberation of the Congo. Makolé remains on the roster of missing Immortals, his death so far cannot be proved.

                            Lauren Drake was a highwaywoman in Scotland who was killed by several angry villagers in 1737. As an Immortal, she

                            wandered aimlessly until she found Khordas and became his faithful second "Companion". She was last seen in Nantucket

                            in 1897 where she was hit by a small missle and disappeared into the ocean. She is presumed to still be dead considering

                            her body could not have possibly remained intact after such an impact. And even assuming her head wasn't severed from her

                            torso (since no Quickening was reported) she certainly didn't live long with a mutilated body. An immortal probably put her

                            and later mentored by immortal Cassius Polonius. In 1505, he is visiting Venice as "Prince Dukaghin of Albania", conducting

                            business with a locale banker. He is spotted the following century, living in England, then in Greece alternatively mayor of

                            been cooking for nearly 800 years perfecting the recipes during that time. I have always had an interest in historical cooking

                            and have had some fascinating conversations with her on the topic. Of course I know that she’s has first hand experience but

                            its hard to really get into it because of who we are and time. We are putting in 12 hour days and the one day I have off I

                            Taken in and taught of Immortality by Kage

                            As the first Immortal Kage encountered after what he had seen back in '75, Andrew Breeland is a good representation of his

                            new outlook on life. Breeland, a former junkie and small time hood, has been given a new lease on life. If Cambodia never

                            happened, I'm sure Kage would have taught him how to make an easy buck and take heads or worse, take his head outright.

                            But instead Kage is teaching him peace and love, something I figure Breeland has never lived with. While Kage is still

                            teaching him how to use a sword, I figure this is just a protective measure for when Breeland eventually leaves his teacher.

                            Breeland found Ohane Munroe among the debris of a house on the suburbs of New Orleans, he tried to reach out to her but this is an untrusting immortal hiding in the frame of the teenaged Ohane and though Aaron Breeland isn’t a pedophile, she recoiled from him. As the remains of the house was taken away by the flood, so was Breeland on his boat. I nearly drowned too, watching them from afar. I hope this isn’t the last we see of Breeland and of that unfortunate girl.

                            to himself as born with the Cahokian culture

                            The Cahokia were an Algonquian speaking Native American tribe and member of the Illinois Confederation. They were

                            originally located in Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, and Arkansas, later removed to Kansas, and finally to present-day Oklahoma.

                            The frangmented chronicle of Howakhan was put together from testimonies from the Six of Vinland and from James Coltec

                            who referred to the old Cahokian as having born two hundred years before the settlement of the Vinland colony in North

                            America. The Scandinavian Kanwulfsson clan travelled through the North American continent during the 12th century after

                            meeting their First Death and met an assorted number of pre-immortals and immortals, including he elusive Hwakhan known

                            inlegends as the man who was cursed with never joining his ancestors in the lands of eternal hunts. A bit of irony if we

                            consier the immortals are living in it. The Vinlanders taught Howakhan of the Game, of immortals in a large land beyond the

                            sea who fought each others in duels to the death. In 1850, the ancient immortal made his first recorded appearancve on the

                            immortal scene when he met a fellow Cahokian, Kol T’ek, aka James Coltec.
                            Forty-two years later, he disappeared and was never seen again.

                            According to Middle Eastern Chronicles there were a fair number people who were attributed physical immortality by Jesus of

                            Nazareth prior to his crucifixion and while most of those stories are apocryphal, i.e coming from too many different sources to

                            be verifiable, the existence of Jesus of Nazareth has indeed be verified as well as the story of the Wandering Jew, aka

                            Ahasuerus, already several centuries old and the story of Lazarus' resurrection cluing us on the origins of the Immortal

                            Lucius Sharp claiming the identity of the original disciple of Christ.
                            The existence of Casca Longinus is unverifiable. In theory he may well have been Cassius Marius, aka Brother Paul, the only

                            known Immortal centurion to have converted to Christianity, thus joining the origin story of the original Saint Longinus. Paul

                            never spoke of his life around the time of Christ’s resurrection but if indeed he pierced the flank of Christ this could have

                            created the conditions to his conversion to Christian religion.
                            The stories of John the Apostle and the Three Nephrites are to be taken with a grain of salt. All we know so far is that

                            Lazarus was living in New Mexico prior to his disapperarance in 1978. The man claiming to be the Wandering Jew was killed

                            by a disciple of his, a youngish immortal with the habit of murdering his teachers.
                            John the Apostle, or the man claiming to be him was met by Dyonisos the Aerropagite in Epesus circa 100 AD.
                            The Three Nephites met Cassandra in 33, the year of Jesus' crucifiction, they spread the word of Christ for three hundred

                            years before their disappearance in 301 in Armenia

                            I am reporting the disappearance of immortal Lazarus yesterday night, the 12th of May 2000. Lazarus had an appointment

                            with fellow immortal Chang in order to purchase a rare Toledo Salamanca rapier. I heard Chang and Lazarus argue over the

                            price of the rapier, Chang asking too much money from my assignment. Apparently they had previously settled on a price,

                            but Chang got greedy. As a barmaid in Lazarus'club I was summoned back to the bar and was unable to keep on Watching

                            the argument. Ten minutes later I hear the unmistakable sound of a Quickening erupting from the backyard behing the club. I

                            rushed to the scene but couldn't find Lazarus or Chang; I am unable to tell who won the fight; I suspect the victor took the

                            body away and since Lazarus hasn't re-appeared I believe he lost the duel. I am now requesting re-assignment.

                            Dear Ms. Sinoes,

                            What exactly are they teaching you at Watcher Academy, nowadays ? If you believe either Lazarus or his opponent is dead,

                            you have to produce a proof that either Lazarus or Chang is dead. You cannot come and ask re-assignment just because

                            Lazarus is missing. Not counting the fact that you are in charge of Watching a very important immortal, one who bore

                            witness of the immortal awakening of Jesus Christ. I want you to produce a proof that Lazarus is living or dead and/or

                            produce a proof that Chang is either living or dead, do you get all that ?
                            And please, quit making me waste my time in the future.

                            Cordially,

                            From what Nicanor Perreira told his student Keith Douglas before the latter killed him (see Douglas Chronicle, Immortal

                            Parricide, there existed an ancient immortal born around the 13th century BC in Mesoamerica, attesting to the presence of

                            immortals in this part of hte world. A compelling tale when we know the cradle of immortalkind is believed to be set in

                            present-day Middleastern countries. Kosumi was an Olmec, the first major civilization in Mexico. They lived in the tropical

                            lowlands of south-central Mexico, in the modern-day states of Veracruz and Tabasco. According to Yarhuata Pachaco,

                            Kosumi used to rule the Olmecs, his reputation as a godlike being insuring him total control of his people through fear and

                            brutal repression of any attempt at a political coup. Between 400 and 350 BC, a catastrophical climate change provoked the

                            decline of the Olmec civilisation - possibly a megatsunami or a meteor strike - and Kosumi disappeared from the surface of

                            the earth after a fight against Yarhuata who invaded the Olmec's homeland with a large, conquering army.

                            The Virgin of Guadalupe with her fancy clothing and skull mask is an impressive sight, but she doesn’t deilver death to the

                            immortals he meets. Simply the message that immortals could all live in peace if they wanted it strongly enough. While the

                            message might be naïve, it isn’t implausible : a lot of immortals live together in peace as families, tribes, packs. Surviving

                            together in the world of the Game. While she hasn’t appeared in eighty years, we hope she finally found peace and

                            contentment now that the Game has been ended with the death of Memnet-Ra.
                            As for her origins, the facts she wore a death painting on her face could mark her as a disciple of the elusive Mawauy,

                            death-masked immortal from Western Europe, who spent the 11th century in South American countries. Could the Virgin

                            have been a disciple of Methos ?

                            teacher. She certainly took after her manner because she killed hundreds of rich mortals in the 330 years we have been

                            following her and she took her fair share of Quickenings too. The latin counterpart to Sarah McLaughlin and Nell Fagin made

                            Immortal’s sharp sword.

                            There is a legend, about her, explaining her behavior : that early in her life she was forced into killing a male Latin Immortal

                            and the Quickening overloaded an otherwise good personality. The Immortal was a devil of a man, so wicked and cruel that

                            Felicitas had no choice but to take his head. The Immortal was a Native Venezuelan, a Yamomani who ruled over his tribe

                            and ate the flessh of conquistadores and bandeirantes he capured. He captured Felicitas, raped and and tortured her until

                            finally she managed to escape her bonds and killed him herself with her cutlass. Ever since, she has been killing

                            indiscriminately, eating the hearts of men like the praying mantis she is.

                            Why did a warrior like Hijo de la Luna of the Oriente chose to become the bodyguard of the governor of Ecuador is unknown,

                            our best theory is that he was mentored/enslaved by a Spaniard Immortal who turned him over to the Spanish world, decades

                            before he was mentored by Immortal Carmen Morales. Carmen once told the story of an Oriente warrior clad in Spanish army

                            armor who challenged her in 1570 and lost against her superior skills. She let him live to be followed by a local Watcher who

                            wrote the chronicle of a muscular Immortal of Quito. Lluna had the reputation of being invicible in battle and an unkillable

                            bodyguard of the local governor.
                            There was indignous resistance against Spanish colonization of Ecuardor, led by Inca warrior Ruminahui, bodyguarded by

                            then pre-immortal Lluna, in theory. In 1534, Conquistador Sebastián de Benalcázar (possibly an Immortal himself) captured

                            Rumiñahui and killed him, ending the resistance.
                            The earthquake of 1797 killed Lluna’s Watcher and nothing has been told about Lluna since.

                            Yarhuata Pachaco disappeared from Watcher records in 1957 with Lucius Oranius Capito and Ari al-Muzaiyin hot on his

                            trails; the two immortals made a contest on which of them would kill South America's oldest immortal and were joined in this

                            by Lalica of Persia. The three immortals comped the entirety of Peru in search for him, but Pachaco had already vanished

                            and hasn't re-appeared since. While the chronicle of Pachaco is sparse and we know few little things about him, he is an

                            important immortal for the history of Moesoamerican immortals and we do hope to see him re-appear somewhere unless, of

                            course, he fought his last battle against one of the immortals who sought to take his Quickening.

                            Julio Riviera and Lupe Quezada disappeared in 2001 when they were killed by Chilean police force during the Mapuche

                            Conflict. For four hundred years they lived on the South American continent trying to survive like the other Amerindian

                            immortals after seeing their culture disappear, destroyed like the Incas and the Mayas.
                            The 2011 Chilean protests in which several Mapuche indians were involved was observed with care ,we hoped to see the two

                            Indians re-appear, but they didn’t; given how politically involved they are, it is likely they were killed or incapacitated in the

                            intervening years.

                            Cristobal Rojas wanted to make a pilgrimage to Palestine, to follow the tracks of Jesus of Nazareth, rumored to be an actual

                            Immortal as were the Three Nephytes and Saitn Longinus. But he ddin’t have the time because of his involvement with the

                            Veneuzuelan revolution against the Spanish Empire; the night before his execution Sean Burns was with him in prayers,

                            having confirmed the presence of Christ among men, 1700 years ago which astonished Fathe Rojas, a man of good faith.

                            There is a difference between believing and knowing, and knowing that Christ existed gave hope for mankind to Cristobal :

                            maybe humanity could change with Jesus among mortalkind. Sean Burns didn’t believe so but he wanted peace for his friend

                            in his last moments on Earth.
                            Padre Cristobal was found dead in his cell on the following morning, and since that was his last wish, he body was carried

                            away by Sean to a cemetery on the outskirts of Caracas. We lost the trace of the two men since, but we have an inkling

                            Padre Rojas did travel to Palestine thereafter.

                            For fifty years it was never possible to separate the chronicle of Modesto Anjos with the chronicle of Eulogio Guajira, two

                            Immortal scum made of the same flesh and blood who set foot Colonial Brazil by the middle of the 18th century and stayed

                            there for five decades, making a name for themselves as slavers and fortune hunters. At some point they met conquistador

                            Joao Soares de Almeida who didn’t bother taking their heads after he defeated them in single combat and instead hired them

                            as bodyguards and slave-hunters.
                            Their association lasted two years, Soares disappeared in the jungles of Brazil in 1750, leaving his hirelings to their fate.

                            Watcher Research theorized “Anjos” and Guajira” could have been Lymon Kurlow and Peter Matlin reinventing themselves as

                            two Portuguese and with Immortals such as Tak Ne the Egyptian livign under the name of Juan Sanchez Villalobos Ramirez,

                            well, who’s to say this isn’t true ? Of course it would mean they ran into trouble against Immortal "Andromeda Valdez" who

                            may have killed then, and Kurlow & Matlin died against Duncan MacLeod in 1805 in England.

                            Hugh Fitzcairn certainly had a way with ladies when it came to bring them to his bed, less so when it came to teach them

                            the ways of Immortality, the swords, Immortal lore. He simply had no patience with a fierce Catholic Brazilian woman like

                            Pamela and he failed as a tutor. Connor MacLeod he was not. Instead of turning the sexual assault victim into a competent

                            player of the Game, he gave her the fear of God, so to speak and let her on her own once the English deserted colonial

                            Brazil. Having been raped by Englishmen, Pamela wouldn’t have been in the mood of listening to an Englishman, anyway.

                            In seventy years of Immortal life, Pamela stayed on her own, moving from one convent to another one, occasionally working

                            in a brothel to make a living and only once taking another Immortal woman under her wing, with whom she hared her fear of

                            the Game, of Immortals. In 1539, both women met Giuseppa Polo, a socialite and player of the Game who nearly killed them

                            before Antonio Pettisani took her head. In those moments of terrors they found Immortal women could be as distrutful as

                            men and found out about the power of the Quickenig : its frightening beauty, its power, how it can change and shape an

                            Immortal.

                            A talk with Pettisani convinced them that they would either have to train seriously or they wouldn't outlive the 17th century.

                            The Field Watcher assigned to Pamela and Abril was killed in a mugging during the carnival of Rio in 1641 and so we lost

                            their trace. Did they train like Pettisani instructed them to, did they find an Immortal they could trust ? Or are they still out

                            there cowering in a convent ? Unless finally, a player of the Game mercifully put the two ladies out of their misery.

                            Gallego, his companion wasn’t seen with him and was presumed dead. One never should presume an Immortal dead before

                            seeing his or her body. Manuela was active, alive and well in Brazil where she killed a local sexual predator, Miguel de

                              cut his own head off with a dry piece of grass, and his death was immediately followed by that of the old king."
                              Many immortals belong to mythology in the Watcher Chronicles : Methos, is one, Kellistra is another, The Eight Immortals of

                              Chinese Myth can be cited as well as King Minos, the Wandering Jew and the immortals who witnessed the coming of Jesus

                              Christ : Lazarus, Prphet Elijah and the Seven Sleepers of Ephesus.
                              Lung Shu was always suspected to be an immortal, being a legendary Buddhist saint associated with longevity and

                              alchemy. Old scrolls were written on how Lung Shu found immortality thanks to the teachings of Sun Tzu who wrote about

                              the Arts of War. Of course, speculations abounded on how Sun Tzu himself was an immortal, or how Saint-Germain could

                              have been taught alchemy by Lung Shu himself.
                              However, theories and speculations don't make a chronicle.
                              Lung-shu appeared in Saigon, 1800, when Kiem Sun travelled to the Orient and managed to find him, hiding in a shrine. No

                              other immortal visited him since that day.
                              That was until 1918, when immortal westerner Ursula Katz (cross-ref : Kellistra) started combing the four corners of Eastern

                              Asia in search for the ancient immortal, claiming her daughter Freya Kanwulfsdottir hinted that the old man lived possibly in

                              Guangdong, China. We don't know what business Kellistra had with Lung-shu, but every immortal living in the area grew

                              wings and fled, panic-stricken. Kellistra searched, and searched until... bingo ! A venerable old man stood before her, in a

                              deserted boathouse; the man was balding, well-dressed (see pictures) and spoke calmly. The conversation could not be

                              reported since both immortals spoke an ancient dialect that could not be identified.
                              Eventually, Kellistra departed, with Lung Shu amazingly keeping his head on his shoulders. Ever since, he has been living on

                              Holy Grounds, in one part or another of China, dispensing his wisdom to any immortal of the Eurasian continent looking for

                              him

                              There is a legend in Japan of how a Jesuit missionary in the 16th century travelled all the way to Japan with a huge negro

                              servant, named Yasuke, who mesmerized Japanese society and impressed the Shogun so much with his prowesses in

                              combat that the Shogun named him Samurai and gave him himself the Nabunaga Clan saber he used in warfare and in the

                              Game for the following two hundred years. Yasuke forged his legend as the one and only black Samurai, traces of his

                              existence making it to the 20th century when the anime Black Samurai was created, inspired from his exploits. Here was a

                              towering juggernaut who could vainquish an entire army like a cyclone, impervious to pain, diseases, mortal wounds and who

                              never aged. There are tales of how in 1789 he killed an ennemy and stood hit by lightning bolts, his by lightnings and yelling

                              in delight as much as in pain. Yasuke the Black Samurai disappeared after taking the head of this unknown immortal, but he

                              may still be living out there somewhere, though no sword-wielding negro immortal has been seen in Japan since the 18th

                              century.

                              On August 9, 1945, citizens of Nahazaki heard a radio warning : ennemy planes heading West to Nagazaki. At 11.03 AM

                              citizens of Ngazaki heard the unmistakable roaring of a B-29 flying high in the sky; it was the lasty thing they heard before

                              lived in Nagazaki when the bomb hit, and since she lived right nect to ground zero, we can assume her body may have been

                              made a living as a singer and scribe. He showed a great sense of humor and intelligence as well as a certain taste for young

                              immortal women : rather than fighting them, he seduced them and brought them to his bed. The song reached the mortal

                              world and was used by Psy, south-Korean artist whose song became a worldwide success.

                              Lim Jao-hee decided her homeland was too little for her, little fish, so she went swimming in bigger ponds, no even afraid of

                              the sharks playing games she could never fathom. To her, the Far East was her playground and she only wanted to entertain

                              herself, to relive herself from the crushing boredom of immortals life. And what better way to do so than playing the Game ?

                              The difference beign that she never killed her quarries, like those fishermen who let their preys fell, she kissed and jumped on

                              her male opponents after defeating them, giving them the night of their life. She was lucky didn't didn't cross swords with the

                              like of Matsuhuro Kanagawa in Japan, or she would have finished her travels in Japan. Her untimely death against Safiya

                              Khan in China has been proven wrong by Eastern Asia research.

                              Well, that was bound to happen. Here is a moment of my past as co-leader of the Four Horsemen fo the Apocalypse. We

                              rode for hundreds of years together, all it took was a woman to take us apart (looking at you Cassandra!) In 1700 BC India

                              was known as the Hindus Valley and was ruled by Lord Rama the Immortal and his wife Sita, a mortal woman of great

                              beauty. Kronos challenged Lord Rama and took his head, spreading a legend among the Hindus about a demon who killed

                              their king, raped their queen and magically created a demonic woman Ajatashatra, a four armed killer with ugly features who

                              became the chaos-bringer, the giver of death, Mother Kali. There is a lot to be found about us, in the Bible, in Hindu myth but

                              what is true is Kronos killed Rama, I raped Sita and Kronos and I became the teachers of the woman better known as Mother

                              Kali. We were the Four Horsemen, we were death, war, pestilence and famine and our legacy was carried out by our

                              disciples, all Immortals.

                              street children by Michael Moore, medical doctor
                              and surgeon

                              In 1955 Michael Moore sought respite from the Game and from a life of torments caused by the evild oings of serial kiler

                              Quentin Barnes, his nemesis. Not aware he was a split personality and that Barnes was his alter-ego, Moore brought Barnes

                              with him in Calcutta were he lived a doctor in the slum of Calcutta, in a place named ‘the city of joy’. There the good doctor

                              met three Indian immortal children living on the streets with whom he bonded and developped a friendship. The three children

                              were close associates of Immortal Sanjiv Gupta who once helped them when they ran in tyrouble with Immortal Kamir who

                              wanted to offer them in sacrifice to Kali, goddess of war and death. Gupta interfered and the three children were saved.
                              At least, that’s the story they told Michael Moore. Unlike Western Immortal children like Kenneth or the Von Arlon, they are

                              not distrustful of adult-sized Immortals and are able to bond with any of their kind who shows no aggressive intents. They

                              were truly a pleasure to watch, but Moore’s Watcher wrote how he shuddered at the idea of Moore reverting to his Barnes’

                              alter-ego, becoming a mosnter and thus betrying his new friends. In 1958 Barnes was back, raping and murdering several

                              women of the city of joy and the childrne soon found out the dark secret of Michael Moore : his evil nemesis was himself.
                              Barnes hunted the childrne who soon disappeared from his sight, never to be seen again. We suppose they are still living

                              somewhere since no proof was made of their death.

                              After my nemesis, after my blood-brother, a third Immortal has been hunting me ceaselessly : my greatest fan .Originally a

                              young boy from the Panchala kingdom of India, Natrajan was dedicated to the cult of Yama the Lord ofDeath and followed the

                              teachings of a "wise old man" named Dhaumaya (guess who ?) who taught him a mix of oriental philosophies so complicated

                              that not even Wikipedia can precisely give a clear definition of it (I challenge you, go look for it!). Poor kid had a terrible shock

                              when he resurrected and thought Yama had left him on Earth to do his work, so he started preaching and preaching and it

                              isn't what I taught him that could make things clear from him. I royally
                              messed up that time again and Natrajan became a vicious player of the Game, offering the paradise of Yama to those of our

                              kind. Obviously the Watchers don't know much about him, but the Indian peninsula is crammed with stories of missing

                              Immortals or killed by an unknown quantity who is in truth Natrajan. I was death and I created a follower of death.

                              In the 12th and 13th centuries, Turks and Afghans invaded parts of northern India and established the Delhi Sultanate in the

                              former Rajput holdings. The subsequent Slave dynasty of Delhi managed to conquer large areas of northern India,

                              approximately equal in extent to the ancient Gupta Empire, while the Khilji dynasty was also able to conquer most of central

                              India, but were ultimately unsuccessful in conquering and uniting the subcontinent. The Sultanate ushered in a period of

                              Indian cultural renaissance. The resulting "Indo-Muslim" fusion of cultures left lasting syncretic monuments in architecture,

                              music, literature, religion, and clothing. The Delhi Sultanate is the
                              only Indo-Islamic empire to have enthroned one of the few female rulers in India, Razia Sultana (1236–1240) who became a

                              role model for the young immortal woman known as Chand Bibi.

                              Chand was found on the streets of Delhi, battered and raped, by the intense player of the Game known as Iman Fasil.

                              Originally wishing to satisfy his thirst of knowledge of difrerent customs and foreign civilisations, Fasil joined the invading

                              Turks during the 13th century and settled in Delhi where he lived as a metalsmith, occasionally playing the Game when

                              challenged.When he met the terrified pauper named Bibi, he didn't quite know what to make of her : she was his first

                              disciple, so he taught her what he could. He taught her of Islam, of Prophet Mahomet's wisdom: of the Game, of the

                              Quickening that would someday be hers and give her untold power and knowledge.
                              He told her of immortals, of ancient ones who had seen the rise of Islam and had helped built the pyramids of Egypt. He was

                              a harsh taskmaster in the way of the sword, doing his best to make sure his student would survive for, at least, one century

                              or two.
                              He taught her that civilisations rose and crumbled, teahcing her fear in a handful of dust.With Fasil, the broken Bibi healed

                              and became a gifted student of litterature, mathematics, swordsmanship; this Chronicle is the opportunity to point out that

                              women like Frances Drummond do not become warriors because of rape. That's an hideous cliche. Rape makes a woman

                              scream, and scream, and scream in pain and grienf. Then there is the shame, the paralysing fear. The emptiness.Cleophon,

                              an apt teacher, first and foremost helped the Crimson Butterfly heal : he allowed her to cry her pain out, to get rid of the

                              shame and to turn her fear into anger, anger into a weapon.
                              Fasil was different : he didn't quite manage to rid Bibi from her fears and from her shame. She would never forget how she

                              had been soiled and left to die and for the next centuries, would fight to redeem herself, to find her lost honor. To do that,

                              Chand would gather young immortal women around her, creating her own family : the fabled Chand Sisters, a group of

                              misguided vilainesses who
                              would become the female counterparts to the infamous Kondh Brothers.

                              In 1398, Tamerlane attacked the reigning Sultan Nasir-u Din Mehmud of the Tughlaq Dynasty in Delhi. The Sultan's army was

                              defeated on December 17, 1398. Timur entered Delhi and the city was sacked, destroyed, and left in ruins, after Timur's army

                              had killed and plundered for three days and nights. He ordered the whole city to be sacked except for the sayyids, scholars,

                              and the other Muslims,;
                              100,000 war prisoners, mostly Hindus, were put to death in one day. The former disciple of Fasil led herself an armed

                              resistance against Timur's soldiers with help from Sindh warrior Amjad Shattar Edhi.After that, Bibi resolved to always show

                              the same ruthlessness and cruelty to invaders of India as she witnessed from Timur's men during the rape of Delhi, travelling

                              around India and recruiting the four women who would comprise her family : the Chand Sisters.

                              Until the end of the 16th century, when Chand got into conflict against Supriya Bhaskar and Sanjiv Gupta, she and her group

                              were swords-for-hire under male disuise, righters of wrongs punishing male offenders who targeted innocent women and

                              played the Game with vigor. Chand Bibi acted as the Regent of Bijapur (1580–90) and Regent of Ahmednagar (1596–99). She

                              is best known for defending Ahmednagar against the Mughal forces of Emperor Akbar. Duriing the Seventeeth century, Bibi

                              and her group posed as a squadron of Sikh women who fought against the Moghuls and fought the Kondh Brothers for the

                              first time in 1704 while warring against the Mughals. In those latter days, Bibi was known as Mai Bhago, a Sikh woman

                              surrounded by four female bodyguards.The conflict of the Chand Sisters against Bhaskar proved temporary as they united

                              their strenghts against the Kondh Brothers, Supriya having as much reasons to dispose of the ultra-nationalist immortals as

                              the Sisters had.

                              The Mughal dynasty ruled most of the Indian subcontinent by 1600; it went into a slow decline after 1707 and was finally

                              defeated during the Indian Rebellion of 1857, in which the Chang Sisters took part. It was at this time that Ranver Kapoor, a

                              Kondh immortal, gathered a few immortals and created a terrorist, male-exclusive, rag-tag team he dubbed 'the Kondh

                              Brothers‘.he rebellion was led by the Chand Sisters who secretly orgnisied several factions into armed conflicts, while the

                              Kondhs were mercenaries and players of the Game with whom the Sisters had been in conflict over the past centuries.

                              The rebellion of 1857 allowed them to settle old scores; unfortunately, Kapoor's group proved to be strongest and wiped the

                              sisters entirely, destroying a group of interesting female immortals who only wanted their place under the sun and to make a

                              difference in this world.A shame, truly, to see two groups of immortals trying to destroy each others during an armed conflict

                              against a common ennemy, instead of finding common grounds and make peace : while Bibi Chand and her sisters tried to

                              help the rebels, Kapoor's group sought to destroy and kill as many British officers as they could and viewed the Chands with

                              disdain and contempt.The battle between the two groups took place at the Antar Mantar observatory in Delhi; the observatory

                              suffered such extensive damages from the four Quickenings the Kondh Brothers shared that it was attributed to mortars from

                              the British army.

                              The Sepoy Mutiny was largely disorganised and ended on a stalemate, wityh no winner on either side and atrocities

                              perpetrated by both Indian rebels on the Kondh's side and British soldiers. The rebellion led to the dissolution of the East

                              India Company in 1858. It also led the British to reorganise the army, the financial system and the administration in India.

                              India was thereafter directly governed by the crown as the new British Raj, results neither the Chand Sisters nor the Kondh

                              Brothers expected.

                              The Trinh-Nguyen War of 1673 in Vietnam saw the last recorded appearance of immortals Lieu Hanh and her companions

                              Thanh Giong, Son Tinh and Chu Dong Tu who lived through centuries of Vietnam history but had such fragmented chronicles

                              that it was always near impossible to patch up a proper chroncle for each of them. Each of the four immortals has

                              association with helping historical national figures; Thanh Giong in legend helped the sixth Hung King to repulse foreign

                              invaders while the other three were associated with known immortal figures such as Lung-shu, Xuan, Sang Yum and Methos

                              himself.

                              Emperor Lê Ð?i Hành's death in 1005 resulted in infighting for the throne amongst his sons. The eventual winner, Lê Long

                              Ðinh, became the most notorious tyrant in Vietnamese history. He devised sadistic punishments of prisoners for his own

                              entertainment and indulged in deviant sexual activities
                              The Chronicle of Xuan refers to Chu Dong Tu, Son Tinh and Thanh Giong as having conspired to put and end to Emperor Lê's

                              reign and after infiltrating his palace, as guard, as cook, as a nurse, succesfully poisoned him in his sleep.

                              During the Tr?n dynasty, the armies of the Mongol Empire under Möngke Khan and Kublai Khan invaded Vietnam during the

                              13th century. Ð?i Vi?t repelled all attacks of the Yuan Mongols during the reign of Kublai Khan under the guidance of the

                              Vietnam immortals, all posing as master strategists and generals of army.

                              In 1418, a wealthy farmer, Lê L?i, led the Lam Son uprising against the Ming. Overcoming many early setbacks and with

                              strategic advices from Thanh Giong, Lê L?i's movement finally gathered momentum, marched northward, and launched a

                              siege at Ðông Quan (now Hanoi), the capital of the Ming occupation.

                              The Tr?nh–Nguy?n War was a long war waged between the two ruling families in Vietnam from 1627 to 1673.
                              Both the Tr?nh and the Nguy?n families were descended from close friends and aides to the hero-Emperor Lê L?i who freed

                              Vietnam from Chinese rule and started the Lê Dynasty in 1428. By 1520 a succession of weak kings had brought the country

                              into a state of civil war . For the next 20 years the Tr?nh and Nguy?n families fought as allies against the usurper M?c Ðang

                              Dung with no small help from the four immortal heroes and that was the last time anybody ever heard of the four heroes.

                              Thai Anh Tam had a way of looking at me, she didn't need words to tell me "I am on to you, don't try your tricks with me !"

                              She knew the darkness in a man's heart and how to cure someone from his demons, she had a penetrating gaze which I

                              found unsettling and she is rumoured in Watcher's circles to have tamed the Kurgan and Lobon Naro-Boshing, two of the

                              most vicious killers on the immortal scene. With me she had nothing to fear, but she knew the darkness in my heart and

                              when she asked me who I was... I couldn't help but speak the truth. I was Methos,bringer of death, master of slaves, prince

                              of chaos. She retorted I was a raping bastard who had a huge ego and that was all. I had a good laugh, because that was

                              true enough : we were four killers on horse my brothers and I, and that's about it. We met during the Third Ly Dynasty, circa

                              600 AD and briefly met again in several occasions when I needed to help someone go though the throes of the dreaded Dark

                              Quickening. As I did with Xanthia.
                              She was successful each time, a precious ally in that mad world. She was last seen in 1890 in Khe Sanh but she is doing

                              quite well, careful as I was to erase her from current records on the Watcher's databases.

                              From the journals of Adam Pierson, 2017

                              Abbess Ng Mui was known to the Watchers as the Vietnamese counterpart to Hsien-Tsiang's shrine in China and to Brother

                              Paul's monastery in Switzerland, with the difference that no immortal would be threated by agressive immortals in the like of

                              Antonius Kalas : Ng Mui wasn't as naive as Paul and kept a close watch on any immortal who would threaten the lives of

                              their brethen in her haven.
                              She also was a master of the Wing-chun, the fighting technique of snake and crane which she taught to her students in

                              eleven centuries of immortality, she used it to protect her monastery from the attacks of agressive immortals, as well as her

                              formidable skills with the sword.

                              16 March 1968 saw the Massacre of My Lai in South Vietnam, the mass killing of 347 to 504 unarmed civilians during the

                              Vietnam war by US army soldiers, captained by immortal Wayne Guthrie who also murdered immortal Cho Mi-Ja earlier that

                              year. Victims included men, women, children, and infants. Some of the women were gang-raped and their bodies mutilated,

                              among whom two Immortal women, the Ly sisters, who fought Guthrie's men and were defeated, given a mortal death by

                              Guthrie himself. However, they still got their revenge the folowing August when the artillery barrage their both commanded

                              destroyed the platoon Guthrie was in charge of commanding. They watched from afar, wanting nothing of Guthrie’s

                              Quickening whose bastard soul now rots in hell.

                              Cross-referencing the chronicles of shaman woman Thai Anh Tam allows to discloser the origins of Nhuyen Thi Hai as oen of

                              the fabled Trung sisters who were born in the 1rst century and led a revolt of Vietnamese peasants against Chinese rule.

                              According to the chronicle of Thai Anh Tam they died early in their life and were mentored by the ancient shaman.

                              I am the fly on the wall who gave the incentive to King Cyrus to constitute his army of immortal warriors, a cadre of powerful

                              combatants instantly replaced after one falls on the field of battle, naming them immortals was a joke from my part.

                              Interestingly enough, history kept my joke for historians to record as a fact of life. Oh I knew King Cyrus well, I knew many

                              kings and emperors and always reminded them they were all naked under their clothing and needed good protection. The

                              actual immortal who led the battalion was another disciple of mine, Pantea Artheshbod and she also put her mark on the

                              history of mankind. I even wrote a page on the net dedicated to her (not on wiki, though, too amateurish to my tastes).

                              Pantea taught to King Cyrus to respect the customs and religions of the lands he conquered which taught him to better

                              centralize the power he held on the countries he he had a hold on, and also to respect women ! Well recognized for his

                              he disappeared in 1382 after an unconclusive fight against Ishaq Ibn Jhanda. His Watche rwas killed by a Mameluke arrow so

                              it is impossible to determine wether Ja’far died against Ishaq or not.

                              We don’t know how many she killed precisely in one century of immortal life, one dozen at most because she lived in a place

                              where Immortals travelled through one country to another and Iraq was at the crossroad of the Middle East since the heyday

                              of Babylon. Izdihar was a tyoung Immortal but she played the Game with a passion only matched by her prowesses in bed.

                              A mistress of the sword and of sexuality, luring men like moths to the flame. Her last known quarry was Selim Ubadah who

                              was en route to Hatra when he was taken by a desert sand storm and lost for a time, his Watcher having presumably

                              suffocated to death I nthe sand. 400 AD Immortals census for Middle Eastern countries lists Izdihar among the missing.
                              She may have seduced Selim Ubadah and may have been killed by him.

                              Disciple of Taher ibn Hamed and Jamal Laboudni

                              Mohsen Ibn Rida-Siraj deserted the Swords of Allah in 1643 but Jamal Labouni accepted no desertion and hunted down the

                              Islamic scholar during the capture of Mecca by the Saudi state and though his final fate is unknown, it does not look good to

                              the observant Watcher who studied the chronicles of Labdouni and his cohorts. Mohsen studied the Quran under Hamza el

                              Kahir, the words of Christ under Darius, Buddhism under Hsien-Tsiang and the Talmud with Avram Mordecai to reach the

                              conclusion that God exist udner diverse shapes and that there are thousands of ways to love Allah (or Christ, or Buddha) and

                              that hatred isn’t the answer to the existence of Christians in MiddleEast. Only tolerance and acceptance of other people’s

                              customs and religious beliefs. As far as the Game was concerned, Mohsen avoided it and found the strenght to forgive Xavier

                              St. Cloud for the death of Hamza, taught forgiveness by Darius.
                              The man of war who wreaked havok with the Swords of Allah disappeared decades before the Watchers lost his trace and it

                              is our hope that he still lives out there, or at least that he had a peaceful life in the last two hundred years.

                              when he took Xanthia of Melitus to Ravansar
                              Spring to cure her of a Dark Quickening

                              After 92 years of hunting his old friend, Metopholus finally caught up to Xanthia in Alexandria the year the city was besieged

                              by the Muslims who ordered the burning of Alexandria’s library. A tragedy for the wise Prisca Negra, a Nubian woman once

                              disciple of Sunda Kastagir, and who sought to preserve the world knowledge, only to see it burnt down. But nothing could

                              save her from pillaging Arabs and from the demented Xanthai who took her out after a brief battle. Did Prisca Negra’s

                              Quickening sane her up ? Or was it Prisca’s innate goodness and widsom which washed away Xanthia’s anger and hate ?

                              When Metopholus found Xanthia, it was as if she was reverting to her old self, but the ancient immortal knew better and took

                              her to Tripolitania, to an ancient shrine located in a cave, where he left her on her own for seven days and nights, until Xanthia

                              finally rid herself from her demons. The shrine was kept by a Muslim friend of his, Fayrul ibn al-Din who made sure Xanthia

                              was kept safe.
                              In the end, Xanthia’s goodness prevailed and she was back to her senses, but befallen with the memories of the good

                              immortals she murdered and of the mortals lives she destroyed during her rampaging years.

                              Unlike Barsine of Asaak, Pantea Arteshbod’s other disciple, Melania of Traxiane ever hid her feminity, she never had to. She

                              was self-conscious, aware of her mesmerizing beauty and the effect it could have on men. She knew the way to a man’s

                              pierced her heart in 140 BC. She met defeat agaisnt one man, Immortal, in 651, when Selim Ubadah proved smarter and

                              more in control than most Immortal men and won her heart, taking her to his bed. He was the one she respected and who

                              learnt to respect her as a woman and fellow warrior. A virgin with the oath of only giving herself to an Immortal man able to

                              conquer her, Melania willingly gave herself to Selim that night and when dawn came… Selim was alone, a peace of his heart

                              gone with Melania.

                              trickery and deceit to Kenneth the Saxon and forgetting his existence for the following eight hundred years, Seraphina the

                              Roman gladiatrix taught Skerdis to use speed and agility to evade aggressive Immortals and to never try eating a meal he

                              couldn’t chew, i.e she didn’t turn him into an aggressive player of the Game. Seraphina and Skerdis stayed together for two

                              I remember Anunit of Mazaca, a woman I mentored upon her first death and whom I loved dearly until she left after two

                              hundred years spent together. Her departure broke my heart, filling me with emptiness. Mortal women died quickly and if I

                              couldn't spend my immortality with a fellow immortal then what was the point with living ? It is around that time that I met

                              Kronos, Silas and Caspian who filled the vacuum in my life. We became blood-brothers and decided a combined power of

                              four immortals had better chances of surviving life on Earth than one single Immortals. I must admit I admired Kronos' raw

                              power, his will, the strenght with which he ketp us united and how he needed le to plan his raids. I had a close relationship

                              with Silas, but Caspian turned me off sometimes. Still, they filled me with a sense of belonging I only felt with my beautiful

                              Anunit. Ah Anunit, why did you fear me so ? Did you fear my power, of the potential for evil you sensed in me ? Did you fear

                              my darkness unless you didn't want to be infected my that darkness. You were right to fear me because me and my brothers

                              became a force to be reckoned with and hell followed our wake.

                              by a centurion, fought and beheaded him later on

                              I once looked into the chronicle of Princess Chiomara of Galatia, suspecting she may have been a past identity of Cassandra

                              because this was a formidable woman who didn’t accept to pose as a victim after that centurion raped her in 186 BC. Instead

                              she decapitated him and gave his head to her mortal husband, statign that only her husband would only lay with her. She

                              disappeared in 25 BC, for the second time confronting my old friend Marcus and when I asked Marcus about Chiomara, he

                              wrote back that he didn’t kill her and that her physical description didn’t match Cassandra’s. So who knows. My nemesis

                              had scores to settle with rapists of all kind, all though fault of mine but I enslaved and raped thousands like her. Should I look

                              behind my back each time I am in a crows for fear a former victim might turn to be Immortal like Cassandra did ?

                              Rome, encounter with Gideon

                              I was in Constantinople when the Black Death struck and if you haven’t lived through it you cannot imagine what it was like or

                              how it felt like. It felt like death on a horse. My brother Kronos (always him!) was in London at that time and I am one hundred

                              percent convinced he brough the rats with him from the Orient, starting the entire catastrophe. Not that poor hygiene in those

                              days didn’t help, in fact it was another one of his tool : ignorance of mortal kind. And rats. He must have appreciated the

                              dispute of Silas and Caspian over red wine or white wine in ‘96. Again talking about my brother when I am supposed to write

                              around Na’amiah of Rabah, a disciple of Cassandra and afflicted with the same passions and demons as the ancient

                              soothsayer.
                              Na’amah was one of the Seven Prophetesses of Israel, seven immortal women who were diviners, healers, tribe leaders and

                              among them Xanthia and Cassandra. Cassandra infected her with the bitterness she felt toward Immortal men but Na’amiah

                              fought those demons and tried to curb the violence of the Game, giving her message everywhere she went, suggesting to

                              Immortals they lay down their swords, to live in peace. We have seen how well that worked with the Immortal posing as me.

                              Na’amah wasn’t as delusionnal as “the other Methos” but she wanted to curb our inner violence so we could survive and thrive

                              as a race. Naturally, in the 14th century we weren’t as numerous, and we had more troubles finding each others. Now the

                              world stands on a seaside cliff, ready to jump in the abyss and our race has but two decades to live. We are pitifully few.

                              What would Na’amah do now, I wonder.
                              I remember the debate she had with me and how she found me unsettling. Did Cassandra tell her about me ? Did she gave

                              her a good description of my face ? She couldn’t prove anything but she didn’t feel at ease with me around her.

                              crossed the Hellespont durign invasion of Persia

                              Once, in a joke, Deoneces’ sirens asked him if he had ever slept with a man. Deoneces answered seriously that it happened

                              to him in 334 BC during the conquest of Anatolia by Alexander the Great. One night, after a day of fighting, exhausted, he

                              visited the army’s ambulant brothel and found himself in the company of a fellow Immortal, Polyxenus, a former disciple of

                              Cleophon of Athens, who had changed gender and followed the armies of Alexander as an expensive prostitute. Deoneces

                              found Polyxenus was as skilled in bed as he was with the sword. His former companion, now known as Polyxena, had

                              changed his lifestyle so much that Deoneces barely recognized him but was forced to admit the truth to the Thracian’s

                              sexuality : this was a woman much like Kyra or Seraphina, trapped in the body of a man. Deoneces wasn't repulsed by

                              Polyxenus' appearance, a man who voluntarily had himself castrated and whore women's clothing, because he respected the

                              mental and physical pain he went through and chose the hardest way for an Immortal to spend eternity : neither man, nor

                              woman, living between both worlds.

                              Research is in motion to find the final fate and, possibly, current whereabouts of Polyxena, one of the first recorded

                              transgender Immortals of the antique world, hoping he didn’t become one of the quarries of the accursed Connoisseur, hunter

                              of transgender Immortals.

                              Ayzebel of Beritus was the only known Immortal woman who was capable of finding the innate goodness hidden in

                              Aganesthos of Tyrins the harshest taskmaster of the Bronze Age and to be able to marry him, to love him unconditionally.

                              They stayed two or three hundred years together before parting ways but the grumpy bear that was Aganesthos became a

                              changed man : he became kinder, calmer.. in some fashion.
                              Not that he forsook his innate violence, after all he was one of the most temperamental and uncompromising teachers of his

                              era, one who didn’t accept failures from his disciples. But still. Yzebel had toned that violence down. A true shame she

                              thought she could do the same with another former student of mine, Teushpa of Cimmeria, Conan the Barbarian with a mix of

                              the Kurgan. How can artesans, painters, such as Yzebel can grow attached to brutes such as him is an enigma that needs

                              to be decyphered once and for all. It is not for today or tomorrow. He was vindictive, possessive, jealous and when I visited

                              the happy couple in Anatolia I found her gone, while my disciple pretended she had left for parts unknown. Under my stern

                              gaze – my best Horseman of Death gaze – he admitted the truth : he killed her in a fit of jealousy and when he woke up from

                              drunken stupor, she had gone like a puff of smoke. I hope he didn’t kill her permanently and that she lived for a few more

                              centuries before an Immortal finally did her in.

                              One of the two ISIL / ESA operative still unaccounted for (along with Emomali Nabiyev in Afghanistan) is Sameh Hadad who

                              disappeared in November 2016 during the Battle of Aleppo. She may have been killed by Hazeem al Bachrim or Carter

                              Wellan who operated in Syria at that time unless Deoneces and Kyra finally got to her. Samh was an ardent follower of the

                              ESA and a zealous disciple of Najia El Khalej who infected the yougn Immortal with her hatred of the Western World.

                              Between the end of the 19th century and the 1960’s she was running her own network of freedom fighters and terrorists in

                              countries of the Maghreb – Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria – and killed scores of offciials of the ciolonial army of France. Only

                              once she was captured in Algeria, in 1962; raped, tortured and finally killed by a French officer, captain Jean-Marie Le Pen,

                              who became the president of the French National Front in later decades. The bombing of Le Pen’s flat and nearly eradication

                              of his family in the 1970’s was originally attributed to Ingrid Henning, but it was her responsibility though she failed to kill her

                              tormentor. In recent decades she manufactured bombs for the ESA during their reign of terror in the 1970's and joined the

                              Kurdish freedom fighters in the 1990's, eventually expelled because of too estreme tactical maneuvers involving

                              explosive-rigged children.
                              2014 saw her join ISIL, financing the Immortals led by Omar Matoub who also hunted and killed their way across the Middle

                              East and Western European countries.

                              frightened Holophernes troops

                              A notable "villain" of the Bronze Age, Holofernes has made his mark on history as the victim of the fabled Judith who

                              decapitated him with help from her handmaiden, a scene depicted in paintings countless of times, including a famous one by

                              Artemissia Gentileschi, aka Immortal Artemissia of Helicarnassos.. Holofernes knew the true sense of terror and made a

                              point of terrorizing and enslaving the populations of the countries and kingdoms he conquered, thus making his teacher very

                              proud. His teacher was Kronos, my brother, thus making of Holofernes my nephew by association.
                              Well, Holofernes, Kronos and I shared one trait of character : a definite weakness for women. This weakness allowed

                              Cassandra to "kill" Kronos and escape from him (I remember she nearly castrated him with her own teeth) and Judith of

                              Bethulia to reach him with her handmaiden (who may have been Elishevah of Samaria, her teacher) and decapitated him with

                              a knife. His muffled screams for help were mistaken for orgiastic screams and when his body was found, it was too late :

                              Judith and her friend had vanished like a puff of smoke.

                              I really get a kick at writing those entries for the Watcher's chronicles because it allows me to disclose the fates of

                              lesser-known Immortals of the Bronze Age and also to make my presence known as the sole contemporary Immortal

                              Watcher. I said contemporary, guys... Get it ? Yes, it may be childsih, but at my age one can afford to be childish

                              sometimes.

                                There aren't Chronicles for the Trojan War, per se, an historical event already apocryphal in the mortal world which in the

                                complicated and convoluted history of Immortals is even more shrouded in mystery. What we know of it is that Xanthia of

                                Melitus was a lover of King Agamemnnon, that Aganesthos of Tyrins and Cassandra were present at Troy and that

                                Aganesthos did mentor Achilles who became known as Graham Ashe in the last years of his life. It is Ashe himself, as did

                                Cassandra and Xanthia who confirmed the existence of several Immortals of Aegean and Anatolian background as

                                protagonists of the Trojan War and several of those Immortals did perish by the sword on the battlefield.
                                Ajax of Aegina, Antilochus of Pylos, Diomedes of Aetolia, Menelaus of Sparta, Odysseus of Ithaca, and finally Achilles and

                                his blood brother Patrocles have been confirmed as Immortals present in Troy during the ten years the war lasted. Seven of

                                those heroes found safe haven on the legendary Leukes Island after the war and were never seen again, while Achilles was

                                recorded active in the chronicles until his death in the 18th Century of common era. Patrocles went to the dark side, so to

                                speak, and became a villain and headhunter until finally Kyra of Sparta took him out of the Game in 940. After the war,

                                Odysseus started a long treavel which would take him around most of the Mediterranean basin before he could return home,

                                he was welcomed by Sersei, the legendary witch who was a student of Cassandra.
                                On the Trojan side were Deiphobus who was killed by Menelaus, Glaucus and Sarpeidon of Lycia, respectively killed in

                                combat by the hulking Ajax of Aegina and Patrocles, they were captains of the Lucian army and allies of Troy. The

                                Chronicles refer to Paris of Troy killed by Diomedes of Argos on the Greek side, Paris was well known for his romance with

                                Helen of Troy which triggered the Trojan War; later in the war, he fatally wounds Achilles in the heel with an arrow, as foretold

                                by Achilles’s mother, Thetis. After Paris's death, his brother Deiphobus married Helen and was then murdered by Menelaus

                                in the sack of Troy.

                                Some Immortals have a bad reaction to the presence of Immortal and this weakness can prove fatal : they get epilepsy and

                                find themselves as defenceless as infants. The cause of most cases of epilepsy is unknown. Some cases occur as the

                                result of brain injury, stroke, brain tumors, infections of the brain, and birth defects, in the cause of Immortals it is the power

                                of the Quickening laying in their brains and spinal cord that can cause those reactions.
                                Some reactions are benign, Kit O'Brady is famous for brutally sneezing in the presence of other Immortals, but in the case of

                                Paul Furio (Immortality's own James Bond) and Malek Ben Mansour from Morocco, epilepsy has caused them more troubles

                                than they care to count, and in the case of Furio it proved fatal : during his investigation of the Red Brigades in 1973 it

                                provoked such a seizuere in him that the Brigages leader - Marcantonio Fitipaldi - easily took hold of him and killed him.

                                Jamal Al Din of Syria was prime warrior material, a young Immortal from Damascus who found epilepsy prevented him from

                                playing the Game and turned from warlike activities to more scholarly careers. Simon Vasilov was one of the best blades

                                from Russia, after Victor Markov, but a bad Quickening left this after-effect in him and he retired from a promising career

                                Kian Zahed knew he was little more than an indentured servant of Melik Tanju but he knew little else than fighting for the

                                Ottomans, was barely litterate and had only the Quran to guide him though his Immortal life.
                                With mentors such as Melik and Jamal Labouni he didn’t have much a chance of getting out of his Muslim life free and

                                happy. Sure he longed to be reunited with his Irish roots but the life he had was better than no life at all, and so by not

                                choosing to leave the Ottoman Empire he chose to stay and fight until the bitter end. Then he met Tudor Filipescu at the

                                Siege of Vienna and for the first time was confronted with an Immortal willing to take his head in the name of the Game, an

                                Immortal so intense in his behavior, who emitted such darkness that he got the scare of his life and his Watcher saw him

                                running in fear, litterally.
                                He got lost during the siege, we are not too sure of his final fate. Was he found and killed by Filipescu, or punished by Melik

                                Tanju for cowardice, we do not know. Or maybe he found a way to Ireland where he found some happiness for a time,

                                however unlikely that may look.

                                The fire destroyed most of the Eldkvarn gristmill in spite of Captain Erlander's efforts to put it down with his team of

                                volunteers. When two of his men were trapped under the crumbling floor, Erlander knew where his duiy lied and went to their

                                been killed, but I am afraid that this time the fire took the better of him : neither Erlander, nor the two volunteers got out the

                                fire. The following day, two charbroiled bodies were taken out of the gristmil's remains, with Erlander's body nowhere to be

                                Italy. Fought and beheaded Marco Collodi

                                'Karolina Olin' - the name under which she first appeared in our Chronicles- has been mad since the 15th century when the

                                Quickening she took destroyed her psyche and replaced her personality with parts of the personna of Marco Collodi from

                                Sienna; the following immortals she killed have been living in her head, alternatively taking control of her body for the next four

                                hundred and sixty years until she was arrested by NYPD for the murder of a jeweller during a string of robberies on Lexington

                                Avenue.
                                She was put on trial, declared insane and has been a resident of Bellevue for the past ten years.
                                'Karolinea' is now perceived as a woman who should be in her forties, now, and doesn't seem to age; she is considered as a

                                freak of science and was subject of inquiry from the National Enquirer. I expect quite a few immortals to gather to Bellevue to

                                either free her, or kill her in order to keep the secets of immortality secret.

                                I signed the paperwork authorizing transferral of Karolina Olin from Bellevue to the Black Friar Asylum for Criminally Insane

                                located in Wales, Great Britain. The woman known on the outside world as 'Jane Doe' as been confirmed as British citizen

                                and must be transferred at once to her homeland. Perfect cover-up for what is just the Gathering of insane and irresponsible

                                immortals in a secluded environment, away from the mortal world, away from immortals and away from the Game.
                                Godspeed, Ms. Olin !

                                Karolina Olin's origins was disclosed to Dr. Carolyn Mortimer by another persona of Karolina : Karol Olinsky who was her

                                foster dad and a pedophile who raped her from infancy until she was fifteen or sixteen. Then he murdered her to keep her as

                                his plaything forever. A decade later, "Karolina" killed her tormentor herself, hacked him into bits and decapitated him. The

                                ensuing Quickening overloaded and she lived with her stepdad tormenting her from the grave, living in her mind. She turned

                                crazy and has been killing Immortals ever since with each Quickening giving her an added persona. She now has twenty-four

                                different ones, including eight dominants. The Immortals she kills protect her from her tormentor in some way... complicated

                                to describe but let's say they keep him silent and away I nthe darkest recesses of her fractured mind. I feel sorry for

                                "Karolina", I hope someday she will find a way to deliver herself from her torments. Dr. Sylvia Krause, Black Friars

                                First recorded sighting : 1078 Jerusalem; takeover of
                                the city with the Turks, under orders from Grayson

                                It has come to our attention that the believed origins of Bukarev the Ogre, who allegedly was first killed raiding a German

                                vilage in 880 was in fact High Prince Álmos, first Grand Prince of the Magyars in present Hungary during the Ninth century.

                                This tantalizing revelation comes from the New Watcher Council, upon disclosure of Kellistra's past as first teacher of Andre

                                Korda, who became the teacher of Bukarev. It turns out Korda didn't mentor 'Bernie Crimmins' in Germany in 880, but rather

                                fifteen years earlier in Hungary.

                                Since High Prince Almos's birth took place in 820, according to official history, it can be inferred that 'Crimmins' met his First

                                Death around 865 (his physical age being obviously around 45); Kellistra wrote in her journals that Prince Almos died fighting

                                the Khazars and that Andre Korda, her son, mentored Prince Almos in those days, and that Prince Almos became Bukarev

                                the Ogre. Great Prince Almos kept on ruling his people during forty more years but proved to be a less-than-competent war

                                leader : the young immortal was 'offered in sacrifice' by his own men because of the catastrophical defeats the Magyars

                                suffered during their wars against Bulgaria and against the Pecheneg people. Great Prince Almos re-appeared in Jerusalem,

                                1078 as a lieutnant of Grayson, having apparently mastered the arts of war since Grayson was written as bering very pleased

                                with his services.

                                After the Crusades, 'Bukarev' fell in relative anonimity; he was spotted as a black marketer in Sicily by the end of the 13th

                                century, as a hangman in London during the 17th century, a wealthy merchant in Budapest during the 18th century and a

                                London businessman during the 19th century and the 1950's before finally settling as a London Lord for the past fifteen years.
                                And here we thought Crimmins' yearning to be a Noble was a self-delluded fantasy from his part ! Actually, the old immortal

                                wanted to feel like a prince again, for old times 'sake...

                                First recorded sighting : 2600 BC. Early Dynastic
                                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.

                                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.”

                                Fought Sigurd Jarlson to a stalermate

                                Arthur, King of the Britons, and his legendary cohort of Knights of the Round Table. Who he really was - an immortal, a

                                pre-immortal boy predestined to great adventure, who his mentor was and what happened to their lot after Mordred's betrayal

                                has been recounted in hundreds of stories across the centuries, including La Morte d'Artur, the Once and Future King, The

                                Sword in the Stone. What the Watchers know of Arthur and his knights is a vast puzzle of past Chronicles pieced together,

                                of legends faithfully transmitted by Watchers of Immortals who travelled to Great Britain and who bore witness to the coming

                                of age of Arthur, the existence of Guinevere, wife of Arthur and his step-sister Morgane Le Fay, who fell for grim knight

                                Lancelot du Lac. Merlin was a wise immortal, powerful and dark, beak-nosed and with the hallmarks of ancient origins.
                                The Lady of the Lake who gave the enchanted sword Excalibur to Arthur, is described as an ancient lady with red hair who

                                might have been Xanthia of Melitus.

                                It is Merlin by all accounts who gathered the Knights of the Round Table, immortal men from the four corners of Europe and

                                beyond who swore loyalty to Arthur, to rid Britain from his ennemies and to follow him in any quest he would find wise to

                                follow. They were Caradoc ap Bran, Gawain ap Cymru, Agravaine of Britain (Achilles of Troy), Bedivere, Constantine of Britain

                                (Marcus Constantine), Bors de Ganys, Tristan de Lyonesse, Hector and Kay de Maris, Sir Ectorius (Epistor of Macedon)

                                who raised Arthur from infancy, Elyan the White (Llewelyth Develynn), Galahad, Sir Gareth (Frethegard, a student of Odolf),

                                Gaheris (also a disciple of Odolf), Lancelot of the Lake, Sir Maleagant (Maharbal of Carthage), Sir Owain (Odolf of Teutoburg),

                                Pelleas (Cassius Polonius), Pellinore (Ptolemaios), Percival, and the traitor Palamedes (Venantius of Salvemec) in service to

                                the bitter Mordred. A court of twenty-one immortal knights, all sieging at Castle Camelot.

                                But Merlin, as wise as he was, planted the seed of corruption and betrayal with the introduction of his student Mordred the

                                Black inside Arthur's court : with intrigues, subterfuge, small talk, Mordred disrupted the unity of the knighthood and brought

                                about the end of the Round Table when he triggered the union of Guinevere and Lancelot, convinced Arthur to launch his

                                three most faithful supporters - Bors, Galahad, Percival- on the quest for the Holy Grail, weakening the slowly disbanding

                                Round Table. When came the time for the final battle, Mordred fought Arthur to the death after the Battle of Camlaan, bringing

                                about the end of the legendary knighthood. The remaining Knights fought valiantly alongside King Arthur at Camlaan, united

                                one last time.
                                King Arthur fought Mordred to death and decapitated him, as a pre-immortal, dying later from wounds suffered during the

                                battle of Camlaan. No one knows who received Mordred's Quickening.

                                With Arthur's death, coming of age, and departure to the mists of Avalon, the remnants of the Round Table disintegrated and

                                the gathered disbanded, following individual trails. Thanks to the Chronicles, we can figure out the individual fates for some of

                                them. Arthur is presumably still living in Avalon, one of the mythical “Kings under the Mountain” along with King Winceslaus

                                and Frederic Barbarossa.

                                Update

                                Finally the legend of King Arthur's immortality was true : he was a pre-immortal boy mentored by Cleophon of Athens who

                                bore the identity of Merlin the Magician in 5th century England, a man with a vision who gathered a troop of immortals as

                                Arthur's Knights of the Round Table. The witch of the story - Morgane Le Fay - was less a villain than an immortal woman

                                with another vision of how immortals should live in this world - Kellistra - and thus became an antagonist/ally of Cleophon.

                                Where Cleophon raised Arthur into manhood, Kellistra did so with Mordred but through a chain of circumstances she couldn't

                                control, the netural ennemity between Arthus and Mordred who also studied under Cleophon's guidance, turnedd into bitter

                                hatred, with - in the middle - Lancelot's affair with Queen Guinevere fuled by Mordred. Mordred became the snake of

                                Cleophon's heaven and turned the knights against each others. In spite of Kellistra's warnings, Cleophon didn't foresee it in

                                spite of his tactical genius and brillant mind : the wily old fox thought he could control everything but didn't see what was

                                happening under his nose.

                                Revenge is a dish best served cold, Old Klingon proverb, according to Quentin Tarantino. In the 15th century, revenge was a

                                meal served hot and Naajte of Guelders liked it hot, preferably with her sword bathed in the blood of her ennemy. She has

                                been hunting Darek Alak for centuries after he killed her teacher, Mirabelle of Gascony and now this is Michel DeBurgoyne

                                who killed her companion at the Battle of Nancy. She is on the warpath again, killing her ennemy is the only thing that can

                                satisfy her. But how long can an Immortal live with such hatred ? Immortals do carry long grudges (don’t you Antonius Kalas

                                ?) and it can prove to be a burden over time. Mirabelle died in 1186, Darek Alak was killed one century later by Henry of

                                Kent, grandmaster of headhunters-slaying, cheating Naatje out of her revenge. And still she hunts, and still she hates.
                                What a waste of time can immortality be !

                                Once thought killed by Anton Vanko in 1784, Stanislava Brezovar re-appeared alive and well in Tito’s partisan army in

                                Yougoslavia, fighting Nazis. She was a lover of Tito and brought to him her ancient knowledge of guerilla warfare learnt in the

                                15th century and during the 18th century against Napoleon’s soldiers in Russia according to her mentor (and once lover)

                                Talia Bauer). She disappeared from Watcher records after her field Watcher found himself on the wrong end of a German

                                In 1944, Ursula Katz (aka Kellistra) was leading the National Liberation Army against Nazi occupation; being a Native Illyrian

                                herself, it is likely Kellistra had some interest in seeing her homeland freed from Hitler's army and decided to meddle in the

                                affairs of Albania after having led the Warsaw Uprising of 1942. This year, she mentored a new immortal, Emiliano Kadija, a

                                bold and young rebel who felt the world was his playground and even more so after his First Death. While Katz educated

                                Emiliano well, he took after his teacher's wild side and formed an anti-communist cell after the war; his rebellion didn't last

                                long as he was captured and executed with his partisans on orders from Enver Hoca and Mehmet Shedu, who ruled Albania

                                from 1945 to 1992 as disctators.

                                She was called the bear woman by her men, because of her switching moods and the way she ferociously defended her

                                cubs, a tribe of foster children born in the 14th century who followed her everywhere and whom she trained as spies,

                                saboteurs and assassins infiltrating ennemies lines in warfare. She was even thought to have been a past identity of

                                legendary Kellistra because of her former alias of Kallistrate and the fact Kellistra once called herself Ursual Katz, seemingly

                                a dead giveaway. However, Kallisto was found to have been born in the Nicopolis Theme of the 12th century and was

                                identified as a past disciple of Seraphina of Rome. So much for the Kellistra/Kallisto theory. Kallisto disappeared during the

                                Byzantine civil war of 1357 with her children and was never heard from again.

                                To be added to the chronicles of Inyotef and Tizkar of Sumer

                                In light of current events, we are forwarding to you an extract from an old myth we had previously dismissed as local legend

                                or folklore. It recounts a conversation between the ancient Egyptian Immortal Inyotef and the Sumerian headhunter Tizkar just

                                prior to his death in 523 BC:

                                ...but as the old Egyptian warrior, defeated, fell to his knees, his eyes flashed in defiance. Lifting his head, he said to his

                                conqueror, "Before you kill me, Sumerian, know this: I know who sent you, i know who it is you serve! I have a message for

                                you to deliver to your master. Tell him i have seen the Old Woman, the Oracle. She knows what it is he seeks. Tell him she

                                has seen the future, she has seen his end. It will not happen now, but far, far from now. At the time of the Gathering, when he

                                sends his followers out into the world, bringing chaos and death to all, two of our kind will stand against him: One, a Son of

                                Athena, the other, a Daughter of Ares. Together, they are the Sword and the Chalice, the Harbingers of his doom. They are

                                the Future. My old student seeks godhood, they will see to it he is forgotten, his name reviled. All those who bear the mark

                                of Ra will be mercilessly slain to their utter desolation. This is the message i bring, Sumerian. One day soon, your own head

                                will fall and we will meet in the afterlife..."
                                And Inyotef was still laughing as Tizkar's sword fell.

                                It would seen this War was foretold over 2500 years ago by an Immortal known to Inyotef and Menmet-Ra as the Old Woman

                                or the Oracle. Further research is required to discover her origins.
                                We leave it to you to assess the identities of the two Immortals referred to as the Son of Athena and the Daughter of Ares.

                                Brief glimpses of her come from other ancient chronicles. But we have no concrete facts other than the fact that she is

                                immortal and died her first death at a much older age. What is frustrating is that we see only glimpses of the The Lady from

                                other chronicles. But we should have more than that , especially since she was the head of a religious order and stayed

                                mostly on holy ground. The watchers should have been able to get someone on her. The fact that there is nothing is

                                puzzling. It is possible that we will uncover records somewhere down the road but until then I think we should send an

                                archaeology team to the isle of Lesbos and look into the Lady and the Temple.

                                command staff. After raping her, the captain asked if she knew of any hidden money. She told him that she did, and led him

                                into her garden, and told him there was money hidden in her well. When the Thracian captain stooped to look into the well,

                                Timoclea pushed him into the well, and then hurled heavy stones into the well until the captain was dead.
                                Timoclea was seized by the Thracian soldiers and brought before Alexander the Great. She comported herself with great

                                dignity and told Alexander that her brother was Theagenes, last commander of the Theban Sacred Band, who died "for the

                                liberty of Greece" at the Battle of Chaeronea in 338 BC, defeated by Alexander's father Philip of Macedon. Alexander was so

                                impressed with Timocleia that he ordered her and her children released and she was not punished for killing the Thracian

                                captain.
                                Timoclea became Cleophon'slover from 335 to 326 BC and parted ways with him, nt seen by Watchers before 272 BC in

                                Pyrrhus, Sparta, when she lad Spartan warriors alongside Deoneces (Cleophon's disciple) and Kyra of Sparta. The three

                                Immortals fought side by side and also did a luscious menage à trois in the bed between two battles.

                                for the Holy Grail, captured by Cassandra

                                The legend of the Knights of Christendom truly commences by 650 , when shadowy immortal Metopholus gathered seven

                                immortal heroes from all parts of Western Europe as help to hunt the legendary Xathia of Melitus at this time a thrall of the

                                dreaded Dark Quickening. Xanthia received it from an old and evil immortal in India and for one century, roared and

                                ramapaged across two continents, with Methos hot on her trails, trying to prevent her from causing more deaths. She put

                                thousands of mortals to the sword, killed at least six immortals we know of and damaged her reputation to the extant her

                                former disciples went in hiding, dreading the days she would come after them.
                                Finally, Xanthia was captured by the Knights of Christendom, originally six Christian martyrs mentored by the ancient

                                Dyonisios who combined their strenghts against the forces of darkness. They fought many evil immortals, but it was the first

                                time they had to face one of the most benevolents of their kind, the legendary Rebecca,keeper of the Stone of Methuselah

                                and former lover of King Agamemnon.
                                It is Methos who guided his allies to a holy spring where Xanthia was forced to confront her inner demons, her good side

                                eventually prevailing. The seven holy knights were the one she had to thank and truly, this was their most acomplished feat :

                                bringing Xanthia back from the darkness ot the light.

                                In 1819 the San Telmo commanded by Captain Joaquín de Toledo y Parra was the flagship of a Spanish naval squadron

                                under Brigadier Rosendo Porlier y Asteguieta bound for Callao (Peru) to reinforce colonial forces there fighting the

                                independence movements in Spanish America. Damaged by severe weather in the Drake Passage, south of Cape Horn, it

                                sank in September 1819. The 644 officers, soldiers and seamen lost on board the San Telmo were the first known people to

                                die in Antarctica, as parts of her wreckage were found months later by the first sealers who reached Livingston Island.

                                Indeed, if somebody of the San Telmo survived to set foot there he would have been the first known man in history to reach

                                Antarctica.
                                The ship's commander, immortal Joaquin de Toledo y Parra, disappeared with all hands and was never reported living unless

                                he was rescued by the sealers who reached Livingston Island.

                                moved by his deep goodness and faith in man. She built hundreds of places of worship, gathered thousands of women under

                                could resist her triumphant will.
                                When Blasco Calvo challenged her she came to him unarmed, convinced her faith in Jesus and in men could turn Blasco

                                Calvo into a man of God, a follower of Christ. She never came back to her convent, her body was never found.
                                Did her resolve falter that one time ? What did Blasco Calvo tell her that night that could turn her from her sisters, from her

                                faith ? We only know Blasco Calvo spoke to her once and that she disappeared forever. Even Jesus of Nazareth doubted

                                once, and his own disciples doubted him.
                                As for Blasco Calvo, he died a heathen death in 1374 against Henry of Kent, an Immortal as much devoted to Christ as was

                                The story of Nandor Wagner and his wife, Sigihild of Teutorburg, could have inspired the Casablanca movie with their story of

                                two fugities fleeing Nazi persecutions in war-torn Europe. There aren’t a lot of Immortals who can function as a couple – the

                                Valicourts, for instance or Archelaus and Thanos of Athens – but those two were united like the fingers of the hands and

                                couldn’t stand being separated from each others. Against the Nazis they created a resistance cell with links to Alex Raven’s

                                underground resistance movement and to the Secret Immortals Services, finding temporary safe haven in Paris between 1939

                                and 1940 when the Third Reich took the city over. There they fled to Morocco and settled in Casablanca for three years, from

                                there leading their operations in Czech Republic. In 1942 they went to London were they trained two Cezch assassins in a

                                bid to murder Reinahrdt Heydrich, the Butcher of Prague, an operation with suceeded to the cost of thousands of mortals

                                lives and the eraditcation of the city of Lidice. In 1943 the Nazis caught to them and they had to escape again. Their trace

                                was lost in Lisbon but it is believed they may have started the Prague Spring in 1968, accordign the the Immortals of Mother

                                The soul of a leader, a natural one in time when women had to prove themselves tougher than men in combat. She was tough

                                as nail and braver than a hundred men. She led guerillas tactics agaisnt German batalions with a squad of women disguised

                                as male soldiers, suddently appearing out of nowhere, killing veryone in sight, leaving one survivor to tale tales of

                                scary-looking devils and then disappearing in a puff of smoke. Not bad for a semi-litterate village woman from Perugia. Her

                                battle against Iman Fasil nearly did her in because of too much self-confidence but this is a lesson she learnt well and has

                                the Game, which he did for at least five hundred years before disapearing in the 8th century BC. He had seldom contazcts

                                with Immortals, first with Cassandra, later with the fabled Odysseus, then with Methos and his student Ekaterini; he was

                                With Leopold Kambaré having killed and eaten Ulysses Dyson in 1849 it is our opinion that Malek Ben Mansour did have a

                                short lifespan on the Immortal scene after his encounter with Kambaré in 1871 and didn’t make much of his Immortality.

                                Since he never re-appeared since that time, we may write him off as dead, killed and eaten by the Caledonian cannibal.

                                commercial routes, was aware of the existence of other Immortals and kept a strong arm, a sharp eye and an even sharper

                                spear. Terence didn’t dare challenge the woman in the Game but challenge her in bed and was quite apt at convincing the

                                little hellion that not all Western Immortals are bad fellows. In 1835 she had embraced pacifism, and may have longed for the

                                return of the charming Englishman who stole her heart from her with her virginity.

                                In 1980 Darius met Rossa Nuia of the Kerepuni in New Guinea and when interrogated she answered that among the 10,000

                                skulls he found on her island more than one belonged to Western or Asian Immortals who came after her and thought the old

                                woman to be an easy mark. They tasted good too. Darius flinched but wasn’t surprised : on these parts of the world the

                                natives can sometimes break some essential taboos of the civilized world. She never truly forgave Hippolito Cabral for

                                bringing with him the terrible disease which nearly destroyed her people and still has scores to settle with him. Meanwhile,

                                she has her pot, good meat, herbs and an empty stomach to feed. And an unquenchable hunger for more good Quickenings.

                                Darius left her in haste and never visited the old woman again.

                                the power of the Quickening, the gigantic fireworks which followed the passing of Klaus Jung’s Quickening in the body of her

                                century alone on the Samoas and not expect another Immortal to come after her pretty head ? There will be others and the

                                20th century promises to become more and more violent. There are talks that the fabled Gatherign may take place one

                                century from now. What will become of Tiresa then ? Assuming she lives to see the the final days of the Gathering.

                                From the Tribunal :

                                Ambrose Bierce befriended immortal named Kay Murdstone who informed him of his immortality. We do not know why she chose to do so or when Bierce became an immortal. In 1913, Bierce traveled to Mexico to gain a firsthand perspective on that country's ongoing revolution. While traveling with rebel troops, the elderly writer disappeared without a trace. Another immortal, Gabriela de Sevedra helped him going underground, she had been one of his proteges in litterary circles. A funny fact about him is one of the aliases taken by "B. Traven" : Ret Maru. Et Maru is an alias used by Methos according to the Chronicle written by "Adam Pierson". Was Pierson yanking our chains or was there a connection between the ROG and Bierce ?

                                In one of his last letters, Bierce wrote the following to his niece, Lora:
                                "Good-bye if you hear of my being stood up against a Mexican stone wall and shot to rags please know that I think that a pretty good way to depart this life. It beats old age, disease, or falling down the cellar stairs. To be a Gringo in Mexico ah, that is euthanasia!"

                                Perfect last word from a newbie immortal !

                                After years of having been a farm woman and then a prostitute when she fell in that violent, abusive husband of hers who forced to sleep with other men, Helena decided she had enough and left America for other parts of the world, remembering the lessons of Genna Jorgensen who taught her to be a strong, independent woman. She found the strenght to leave her husband and to make a new life for herself as a frontierswoman in Australia, following in the footsteps of fellow Immortal Janie Carson until her death in 1872 when the Australian territories were new and waited to be conquered. Helena was portrayed as an ugly, coarse and sex-crazed woman who hed her true, generous and self-sacrificing personality behind a brutal demeanor, life will do that to any person. At the time of her disappearance, she was a scout for the British army and felt reponsible for the massacre of an Aborigene clan, all murdered because they inhabited a territory the Brits wanted to put their hands on.

                                First death : 1628, Indian attack on Avalon
                                First teacher : Ava Delate
                                Known associates : Angelica Monroe, Annabelle
                                Monroe
                                Known past associates : Ava Delate
                                First recorded sighting : 1628 Acadia
                                Found and mentored by Ava Delate

                                The Monroe family makes up a strange trio of immortals : looking at them, one would thing the youngest of them is Luke given his aparent age when in truth is the oldest. Luke was born in modern-day Newfoundland when the first settles set foot on the North American continent. Luke was among them, a pre-immortal child who didn't life beyond his teenage years when his hometwon was attacked by a tribe of indians, its population massacred with Luke waking up to find himself among his friends and family taken away from him. Luke thought he had survived to tale the tale and wandered for weeks until he arrived to Acadia where he met Ava Delate who taught him of his immortality.
                                Luke spent the next ten years in Nova Scotia maturing into a fine immortal, honing his carpentry skills and turning into a fine swordsman until he found two young children - two girls - orphaned after their parents died in a freak accident. Luke adopted those girls, Annabelle and Angelica, but as sisters rather than daughters, feeling that someday they would outgrow him - leading the three of them into an awkward situation. And also, he didn't feel confident enough to take on the role of a father.
                                When Annabelle and Angelica grew old enough, Luke told them his secret and also of the life that awaited them. He gave them e choice : grow old naturally, or stage a First Death at their prime, knowing that the youngest they were, the more chances they had of surviving an attack from an agressive immortal.
                                Luke's sisters said yes and drank a form of painless poison that gently put them to sleep. Then they were reborn, immortals, and so started the ballad of the Monroe Family who spent two centuries living in Canada and then on the Pacific Northwest, hiring themselves as carpenters and cooks, and all manners of trades that societal changes could allow them.

                                • Thanks for the lists of deleted and missing Immortals, my friend. It'll help me when i go through my own records of active/inactive Immortals and any that aren't on the lists i'll post to get updates.

                                  Meanwhile, as for Alvarez's first kill, his teacher will show up later in the Spaniard's chronicle when he comes looking for payback.

                                  Background
                                  Original cultural affiliation: Sicilian
                                  Born: 1093, Palermo, County of Sicily
                                  First death: 1127; In service of Roger II, Count
                                  of Sicily, in conflict against Robert II of Capua and

                                  this time a mercenary in service to Capua
                                  Known associates: Knights of Charlemagne
                                  Known past associates: Cantaber of Carthago Nova
                                  Known enemies: Spanish Cabal, Secret Immortals
                                  Society

                                  First recorded sighting: 1200, Marseilles, Kingdom
                                  of France. Recruited by Rosendo of Castile for the
                                  Knights of Charlemagne to assassinate an English spy in
                                  the court of Philip II of France

                                  The Sicilian Immortal Angelico Borizo was a useful tool for the Knights of Charlemagne, carrying out their dirty work, the things they did not want to admit to, and in exchange, they shamefully ignored his extra-curricular activities: that of a killer of young women. Even though the French Immortals knew what he did, they tolerated it merely because he was effective killer of political opponents and threats to France. He carried out his assignments with relish and without question and in exchange they covered up his crimes. Despicable business!
                                  Unfortunately for them, Borizo crossed paths with Spanish playboy Immortal Roman Alvarez in Paris in 1498, when he kidnapped a young woman Alvarez was romancing. She was his third victim in two weeks, but Alvarez, who despised beaters and killers of women, scoured the city for days hunting Borizo.
                                  He finally found him before Borizo could finish off his latest victim and all the skills Borizo possessed could not save him from the flamboyant Spaniard. Truth be told, the Sicilian Immortal was nothing more than a sadistic thug and no match for Alvarez. Unfortunately, the death of Borizo made Alvarez an enemy of the Knights of Charlemagne and he was forced to flee France after a bounty was put on his head.

                                  From the Chronicle of Roman Alvarez

                                  • The Knights of Charlemagne may want to fear being held to account for what they paid others to do. I enjoy these. Sometimes I laugh at Methos' comments. I think you brought in his "official" chronicle up there. I remember it.

                                    • Good story Apololo, another serial kiler with connections to the Knights of Charlemagne who seemingly weren't above hiring sex-crazed psychos in their time. Good thing Hueric the Vandel dispatched them all. Find an update bio for Cantaber, btw.
                                      Thank you for your input, Bystander, yes the Knights eventually had to account for their misdeeds.

                                      Like so many like him, Cantaber is an immortal whose life has been so utterly destroyed by the Game that he became an exteme case of paranoid personalty, suffering bouts of depression and halluciantions, seeing his old opponents in the Game everywhere and figuring out his old friends as potential ennemies. Roman Alvarez and Cassandra were sorry to see him turn out like the devils he once fought, but between Alvarez stealing his girlfriend from him (or so it seemed at the time) and Cassandra manipulating him into helping him hunt Roland Kantos and the legendary Methos, he stopped beliving what they had to say to him and went so faras to challenging any immortal who would travel across Southern Iberia. On the day he challenged Ben Said-alMaghribi, he finally lost against immortal poet. Cantaber was on his knees with, for once, a relived smile on his face : what he had feared most finally happened, he was left with nothing to be afraid of.

                                          Student of Guichard of Tours, recruited into
                                          the Knights of Charlemagne and trained as a
                                          master spy

                                          44 years after Roman Alvarez fled France to avoid the bounty hunters set on him by the Knights of Charlemagne, he would once again unwittingly throw a spanner in the works of the Knights’ schemes. This time, Alvarez found himself in a rivalry for the affections of a beautiful mortal woman at the court of Charles I of Spain, with Bernatz Cazalet, Immortal spymaster for the Knights, posing as wealthy merchant Beliran Cacho, a favourite of Joanna of Castile, co-monarch of Spain.
                                          Cazalet challenged Alvarez to a duel for the affections of Sabela Adega, but he seemed to forget an important fact: Cazalet’s identity as Beliran Cacho was as the finest swordsman in Spain to avoid such confrontations. Unfortunately, Cazalet was an average swordsman but, as he was wont to do, he buried himself in his role too much. And when it came to his duel with Alvarez, he was up against an Immortal trained by Henry of Kent and some of the finest swordmasters in Spain. It was really no contest, but the fireworks display that night of the 14 June 1542 was quite spectacular. Ironically, the Knights of Charlemagne never discovered the Immortal who killed their spy was the same one who killed their top assassin four decades earlier.

                                          • Good work on Cazalet, Apollo1, the story of a man trapped by hiis own sucess and by his own lies. He had no choice but to fight Roman Alvarez. You really give life to your characters.
                                            Good connection between Alvarez, Cazalet and Angelico Berizo. How many Immortals did Alvarez kill in total ?

                                            How many Immortals do you have presently on your lists ? I have 3780 now.

                                            Jane Durieux lives in a fantasy world where her lover taught her the pleasures of the flesh, unencumbered by a sense of responsablity, having been taught of the wonders of immortality, that she would never grow old and would have all the time in the world to travel the world, and if the Christian God didn’t welcome her in his paradise, so be it, her immortality was a gift to be savored to its fullest. Two years in a bubble of dreams in Saigon so far, but when will she realise the predatory nature of her lover, Leung Kai-Fai ? When will he ask her to play his own little game of baiting innocent girls in search for players of the Game ? Leung heard of Axel Whittaker’s technique, having nearly been killed by the Norwegian, but this brush with death taught him a definite lesson. And so he began scouring the world in search for young female and male immortals to use and abuse. He may hot have had as many girlfriends and boyfriends as Axel, but he still manages very well and ten years is his usual limit before he lets the mask slip.

                                            • Thanks for the latest chronicles, my friend, more for me to check against my own records! Lol
                                              I haven't done a proper count yet on how many Immortals i have since i'm still sorting through my old and updated stats, but i know it's over 3000, probably not quite as many as you have though...

                                              As for Roman Alvarez, i'm not sure yet how many kills he has, i'm kind of letting his story play out in the chronicle and waiting for inspiration to come to me. I have at least another 4 kills on the page maybe two more in my head and one i'm playing around with that i haven't got a firm fix on yet, but it'll come to me.

                                              Meanwhile...

                                              First recorded sighting: 1405, Palma, Majorca.
                                              Found begging and stealing on the streets of Palma
                                              by Bermejo, told of his immortality and the Game,
                                              recruited into the Cabal

                                              Found and recruited by Alfonso Bermejo of the Spanish Cabal in 1405, David Miguez’s murderous tendencies were tempered and directed by Bermejo, the Cabal’s master assassin, at Spain’s enemies. Unlike the Knights of Charlemagne, who indulged the proclivities of their own assassin, Angelico Borizo, the Cabal sought to control Miguez much better, unwilling to have him draw attention to their clandestine activities. When Bermejo was killed by Raymond d’Amboise of the SIS in 1568, Miguez became the Cabal’s master assassin.

                                              From the Chronicle of the Spanish Cabal

                                              Roman Alvarez had spent some time in London from 1570 to 1581, where he enjoyed the company of English ladies of nobility and had a tempestuous affair with Helen Bondeville of the SIS. Alvarez was never much of a patriot and was easily persuaded by Bondeville and Richeard of Mercia to help protect Queen Elizabeth from the machinations of Catholic Spain by gathering information for them on the movements of the Spanish fleet. Alvarez, an adventurer and thrillseeker at heart, leaped at the chance to play spy and travelled to Cadiz, posing as a wealthy merchant, to watch over Spanish ship movements. But the Spanish Cabal’s own spy network warned them of a traitor passing secrets to the English from Cadiz and it took less than a year for Alvarez to be identified as a spy. With Bermejo long dead, it was David Miguez who was sent to kill Alvarez, but the wily Alvarez was too good with the blade for the less well trained Miguez; their duel among the back alleys of Cadiz ending with the assassin’s head rolling on the ground and Alvarez retreating from the city via horse and carriage with a lady friend he’d spent months sharing a bed with.

                                              From the Chronicle of Roman Alvarez

                                                slaying was the latest one a series of crimes perpetrated by former disciples of his, seven brothers born in the Kingdom of Alba in the 10th century, during the reign of King Constantin Mac Aedaseven, seven warriors to whom he taught the ways of the Game, of Immortal life, of the Prize. Their were first known as Domnall, Eideard, Fionnghall, Kerr, Kentigern, Raghnall and Taskill of the Clan MacDonald.

                                                Those seven disciples took too much after him, honign their skills along the centuries and to survive, becoming a savege
                                                sextet of Immortals, spreading tales of terror from Scotland to Northumbria, travelling as far as Norway, fighting Viking
                                                Immortals such as Kanwulf and the Six of Vinland, taking on Briton warriors like Ceirdwyn and Alex of the Carvetti.
                                                They first appeared on our chronicles besides James Wallace himself, fighting side by side with him during the Scottish wars of Independance of the 13th and 14th century, being identified as his students, but James Wallace didn't recognize his spiritual sons in the bloodthirsty killers they had become. They even threatened the life of Mairead of Ross, Wallace's new student and leader of Scottish warriors who met her First Death in 1297 at the Battle of Stirling Bridge.
                                                The war began with Edward I's brutal sacking of Berwick in March 1296, followed by the Scottish defeat at the Battle of
                                                Dunbar. The MacDonalds avenged the fallen warriros by hunting all British soldiers their could find, torturing killing them, spreading horrible stories of avenging spirits who maimed and killed before vanishing in puffs of smoke.
                                                This got them in conflict with James Wallace, Ceirdwyn and Alex Raven who didn't condone those acts but those were
                                                terrible times and when the English behaved themselves like savages, the Scots responded in kind. Where Duncan MacLeod nearly lost his soul in the 18th century after the Battle of Culloden Moors, and still could be saved, it was abvious those seven brothers lost themselves in the violence of the Wars of Independance, seeing too many of their friends being killed and becoming addicted to the neverending battles.

                                                In the forty-five years that followed the onset of the wars, Scotland was a ruined, shattered kingdom, seven heroes emerged disillusionned and bitter. In 1341, their new king, King David II; last male of the House of Bruce, tried to rebuild his armies but was soundly defeated by the British and imprisoned in London.
                                                By the end of the wars, Scotland was independent and remained thus, until the unification of the Kingdom of England and the Kingdom of Scotland while its disillusioned heroes chose the ways of peace for the most part... with the exeption of the MacDonald brothers who needed the violence of wars to keep on thriving. And thrive they did, becoming, highwaymen, pirates, plunderers, plying the Game and killing as many Immortals as they could find.
                                                The Watchers lost track of the sextet but there are chronicles in the 15th, 16th and 17th century which mentions seven Scots fighting the Six of Vinland as well as infamous pirate Davy Jones, Scottish heroes Connor MacLeod, Warrne Cochrane and Brian Cullen.

                                                Finally, 1663 they came back to Scotland and settled there, racketeering villages for 'protection', ransoming village chiefs and becoming a huge nuisance to the English. It is those conflicts with the English that became a problem to James Wallace who decdied to take action when the slaying of the innocent MacDonalds came to him and he decided to gather six Highlander heroes with him, to put and end to the crims of the MacDonalds of Alba. It was easy for him to gather former
                                                students and brothers in arms such as Mairead of Ross and Brian Cullen and to call members of other chans : Warren
                                                Cochrane and the MacLeods. Even pirate Davy Jones joined the party. James Wallace and his friends hunted down the
                                                MacDonalds and cornered them in Inverlair where one of the most savage fights in the history of Immortality took place.
                                                The MacDonalds were strong and cunning, theri opponents merciless and determined.
                                                Finally, James Wallace brought the heads of his former students to Lord Macdonnell of Invergarry Castle as proof before sending them to Edinburgh. As for the fallen Immortals, their grave was found centuries later in a mound nearInverlair, thus confirming the legend of seven decapitated Scots.

                                                The murders of nine young Immortal women have been avenged when Gerszon Telek took out Martina Czak in 1656; Czak's reign of terror lasted three hundred and thirty years and mirrored the tale of Countess Bathory, self-professed vampire who sought eternal youth by bathing in the blood of young virgins and sought young Immortal women so they could give her an endless supply of blood, taking their heads when she would tire of them. Of the nine girls, four weren’t aware of their Immortality (Bartje of Antwerp, Roie Brogan, Liselotte Pulver, Vera Novackovva), Margarete Mewes and Ditje de Nijs were trained but hadn’t lived for one century, Phoebe the She-Devil and Helinda Dautzenberg played the Game but were naive about Martina Czal's intents; Chava Rosanov stayed on Holy Grounds as did Bartje. Even Holy Grounds wasn’t safe when Countess Czak approched those two and took them to her place for years of torture and ritualistic sadomasochistic games.

                                                • Another great chronicle with Martina Czak and her similarity to Elizabeth Bathory. Felt sorry for those poor Immortal women, they had no idea they were flies ensnared in a spider's web.

                                                  Continuing on...

                                                  THE CHRONICLE OF ROMAN ALVAREZ

                                                  Inconclusive fight against Alphonse of Gijon, 1584

                                                  Hunting for Roman Alvarez since he killed David Miguez in 1582, the Spanish Cabal received word that he was hiding out in Alicante in the Kingdom of Valencia. Alphonse of Gijon, leader of the Cabal, found and challenged Alvarez. At this time, Alphonse was one of the finest swordsmen in Iberia. The fight between Alphonse and Alvarez was evenly balanced but was interrupted by the city militia. Alphonse was arrested and Alvarez was able to escape and left Spain.

                                                  Inconclusive fight against Guichard of Tours, 1593

                                                  Roman Alvarez was living quietly in the city of Valletta, Malta, and romancing several women, single and married. He was relieved to away from the Game, but was unaware that the Knights of Charlemagne had been hunting him for more than a century until Guichard of Tours appeared in Valletta and challenged him. Alvarez had the upper hand in their duel until they were interrupted by witnesses, but Alvarez still chose to abandon Malta for pastures new.

                                                  From the Chronicle of Roman Alvarez

                                                  Cheers

                                                  • Those poor ladies deserved to have their tragic stories told, Apollo1... More good characters once forgotten... and recycled.
                                                    I restored Jesus of Nazareth by the way... from my own sense of humor and I like the Nazarean as one of the Order of Sacred Knowledge's best kept secrets and an Immortal Ishtar of Erech is in charge of protecting on behalf of the Order. Just a proof of God's own practical sense of humor... his son of divine essence.. an Immortal ! Besides; the Kurgan did say in Highlander that his sense of self-sacrifice would cause his downfall someday.

                                                    Did you like the Clan MacDonald story ? A good one.
                                                    Good job on shaping out Alvarez' past inconclusive fights.

                                                    I have now 3800 Immortals on the roster... only slightly 800 more than you have. I was afraid you had only 2500, the ones you are missing must me original characters from the Deceased roster I created before I came on the HLBB in 2009 or during the 2013-2017 hiatus.

                                                    Cheers !
