  • 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.

    First teacher : Esarhaddon of Hattusa
    Known past associates : Esarhaddon of Hattusa
    Known ennemies : Shamsi-Adad, Xanthia of
    Melitus, Achilles of Troy
    First recorded sighting : N.A. Mentioned in the
    12th Century BC Chronicles as a disciple of
    Esarhaddon, possibly killed by the Four Hosemen

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

    King David’s Mighty Warriors
    First recorded sighting : 1194 BC. Egypt.
    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.

    I won against Parthos of Aram fair and square, he owned sixty gold coins but he wouldn’t pay up. No one likes a sore loser.He even accused me of cheating, pretending I gave drugged water to his horses, riight !
    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.

    First recorded sighting : 34. Galilea. Mentioned in
    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.

    First recorded sighting : 620 BC, Judea. Challenged
    and killed by Ahaziah of Ramoth-Gilead

    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.

    Inconclusive fight against the Kurgan

    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.

    Uriah the Hitttie was a married man when he joined King David's Mighty Warrior and it turns out his wife Bathsheba had an affair with King David and bore the King a child. 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.

    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.

      • 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 complete listing for M.I.A Immortals on further posts.

        Cheers !

        • 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.

          Meanwhile...

          THE CHRONICLE OF ROMAN ALVAREZ

          Angelico Borizo

          Age: 405
          Known aliases: Angelo Bosio
          Notable characteristics: Sexual sadist, preys
          on young blonde women that remind him of
          his cruel stepmother
          Weapon: 13th century Knightly sword

          Status
          Most recent base of operations: Paris,
          Kingdom of France
          Occupation: Freelance assassin for the Knights
          of Charlemagne, serial killer
          Prior occupations: Mercenary, soldier
          Roster of Immortals Status: Deceased
          Date: 1 Sept 1498
          Place: Paris
          Victor: Roman Alvarez
          Watcher: Research, Western Europe

          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
          Ranulf II of Alife, Papal Crusade
          First teacher: Cantaber of Carthago Nova, at
          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.

          • 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.

            Comment


            • 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.

              G.


              Cantaber of Carthago Nova

              Known aliases : Arxel of Asturias, Nuno of Galicia,
              Ajan of Aragon, Ansuro Caio, Dagoberto Allende
              Notable characteristics : None
              Weapon : Toledo Salamanca rapier
              Inconclusive fight against Karnilla, 844

              Status
              Most recent base of operations : Carthagene,
              Spain
              Occupation : Captain of city’s guard
              Prior occupations : Soldier, sword-for-hire, sailor
              Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
              Date : Summer 1490
              Place : Carthagene
              Victor : Hazeem Al Bachrim
              Watcher : Research, Immortals of Iberia

              Background
              Original cultural affilation : Iberian
              Born : 400; Carthago Nova, Southern Spain
              First death : 435, During destruction of Carthago
              Nova (present-day Carthagene) by Vandals
              First teacher : Quilo of Hispalis
              Known past associates : Quilo of Hispalis,
              Cassandra, Roman Alvarez, Angelico Borizo
              Known ennemies : Any immortal invading Spain
              First recorded sighting : 551. Carthago Nova.
              Defending city against Visigothic army with Quilo
              of Hispalis, cross-identified as his former student

              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.

                • Thanks for the comments dubiousbystander, yes indeed as Gardner said, the Knights of Charlemagne did end up paying for their dubious antics when they crossed the wrong Immortal, Huneric the Vandal.

                  Victor: Roman Alvarez
                  Watcher: Research, Western Europe

                  Background
                  Original cultural affiliation: French
                  Born: 1342, Nancy, Duchy of Lorraine, Holy
                  Roman Empire
                  First death: 1369; Picked the pocket of Guichard of
                  Tours, fell from rooftop while being pursued
                  First teacher: Guichard of Tours
                  Known associates: Knights of Charlemagne
                  Known enemies: Spanish Cabal, Secret Immortals
                  Society

                  First recorded sighting: 1369, Nancy.
                  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.

                    found and mentored by Sweert Dejong

                    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...

                      THE CHRONICLE OF ROMAN ALVAREZ

                      Place: Cadiz
                      Victor: Roman Alvarez
                      Watcher: Luis Gomez

                      Background
                      Original cultural affiliation: Catalan
                      Born: 1378, Perpignan, Kingdom of Majorca,
                      Crown of Aragon
                      First death: 1402; Beaten to death by vigilantes
                      after murdering a popular girl over jealousy of a
                      love rival
                      First teacher: Alfonso Bermejo
                      Known associates: Spanish Cabal
                      Known past associates: None
                      Known enemies: Secret Immortals Society

                      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.

                        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.

                          • 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 !

                            • Nice job with the MacDonalds, my friend. Still a bit unsure though about having so many Immortals from one clan at the same time. Apollo2 always complained about having two MacCleods in the continuity! Lol

                              Original cultural affiliation: Portuguese
                              Born: 1091, Braga, County of Portugal, Kingdom
                              of Leon
                              First death: 1128; Fighting with Afonso Henriques
                              for Portuguese independence against Theresa, Countess
                              of Portugal, Battle of Sao Mamede
                              First teacher: Quilo of Hispalis
                              Known associates: Alphonse of Gijon
                              Known past associates: Quilo of Hispalis

                              First recorded sighting: 1128, Guimaraes, Portugal.
                              Recovered from the battlefield by Quilo of Hispalis,
                              at this time called Garcia Soares, a count of Portugal
                              seeking independence from Leon

                              From the time of his First Death in 1128, Helio Trigoso has been fighting for the right of Portuguese self-determination. But while other Immortals such as the Spanish Cabal, Knights of Charlemagne and Secret Immortals Society involve themselves in the dirty business of political manipulation, assassination and murder to steer their homelands’ fates, Trigoso contented himself to be a whisperer in the shadows, using words rather than action to prompt the counts and kings of Portugal, with some success.

                              From 1580 to 1640, the Kingdom of Portugal and the Crown of Spain entered into the Iberian Union under the Habsburg dynasty. It also brought Trigoso into contact with Alphonse of Gijon, leader of the Spanish Cabal. This would be Trigoso’s downfall.

                              From the Chronicle of Helio Trigoso, Champion of Portugal

                              In 1628, Roman Alvarez arrived at the Portuguese court as Count Rodrigo Agosti of Malaga and began to seduce the noblewomen of the court. A suspicious Trigoso took his concerns to Alphonse who quickly identified Alvarez as his long-time enemy and convinced Trigoso he needed to be eliminated. Manipulated by Alphonse, Trigoso tried to get the drop on Alvarez, but the Spaniard was too quick for the Portuguese Immortal, who soon fell to Alvarez’s blade.

                              • Good historical research on that one, Apollo. Pat yourself on the back.
                                The two MacLeods... well,Apollo2 didn't produce the original television series, right ? lol

                                As for the MacDonalds.... Well, I suppose there had to be a Clan of Scottish Highlanders out htere, somewhere.

                                With too many MacDonals on our lists...

                                Gavriel Larca cheated in the Game and after being entombed in the jungles of Peru for one hundred fifyt years desperately needed a sword, a rapier, whatever. Then he met his old ennemy from the Godlen Age of Piracy when villains were scourging the seven seas; still a villain and a crook, Farhan Black had gone from beign a pirate to a highwayman, a mercenary and in present times a crook involved in insurances scam, bringing hundreds of unfortunates to their ruin. He also had a score to settle with Larca who murderred his woman, Anne Dieu-le-Veut in 1715, and this was an opportunity to be seized. Larca, hiwever, didn’t respect the traditions of immortal life and came at Angus with a rifle, shooting him from range befroe taking his Quickening and his saber.

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

                                The Black Mamba is a predatory Immortal woman who has been active in one country or another of the Southern part of the African continent, a title held by five separate Immortals in eight hundred years who have been found to be one and the same.
                                The first was Inah Gaetswe, a fearsome spear-wielding Mapungubwe of present Zimbabwe and who led her tribe against the forces of Gavriel Larca during Portugal conquest of South Africa. The second one ran agaisnt Hippolito Cabral in 1625, in war against the Portuguese. As Kizzy Afrani she gave hell to German commander Ernst Daimler in 1907 before disappearing.
                                As Nantobeko of Batusoland, a freedom fighter for four separate decades, was never sen withouth her pet cheetah she dressed to kill British soldiers as well as any Immortal foolish enough to challenge her. Finally, the last identity we know of Inah Gaetswe was Ayondela Kawime, a rebel fighter in Angola who was befriended by legendary Queen Anne Nzinga; herself a disciple of Sunda Kastagir.
                                All those women were thought killed long ago, but cross-referencing work in past chronicles of Ernst Daimler, Larca, Hippolito Cabrall, Olapede Chukwu ad Kashta of Nubia allowed to file those five ladies among the list of Missing Immortals, rather than Deceased and finally to merge them into oen singe chronicle.

                                • Good job re-purposing some of the MacDonalds, my friend. Some great new chronicles to add to the roster. And an intriguing group of Tuareg Immortals...

                                  Meanwhile...

                                  THE CHRONICLE OF ROMAN ALVAREZ

                                  Inconclusive fight against Alphonse of Gijon, 1630

                                  Angry at Roman Alvarez for eluding his vengeance again in Portugal, Alphonse of Gijon pursued his nemesis back to Malaga and the duo clashed for a second time. They played a game of cat-and-mouse through the streets of the town but were once again forced to abandon their fight due to mortal witnesses. Soon after, Alvarez abandoned Iberia and took ship to North Africa.

                                  Cheers

                                    Found and mentored by John Stoppard

                                    A true American, soldier Wayne Guthrie was proud of his homeland, of the way it had been born and bred in a savage and violent way. Wayne strived for the sound of battle, the exquisite pleasure of giving death at somebody elses's command. I think most of what Wayne was taught about war, he learnt from his mentor, John Stoppard, another soldier-at-heart who taught him the rules of the Game and the beauty of wars as he did with Simon Killian.
                                    He viewed times of peace as a parenthesis between another campaign, another war. The Civil War, the Second World War, Korea, gave to his life the spark that he needed. He tried to impart his view of the world on his only student, a marine killed taking the beach at Iwo jima; but Howard Crowley wouldn't listen to his rantings. Guthrie wanted to die as a soldier, to know the cold embrace of death on a battle field, like he did upon his first death.
                                    Today, his wish came true when an artillerie barrage from the yellow-faced black shirts destroyed most of his unit during another tour of duty, taking his head in the process and preventing him from taking another student, young private Manuel Diaz who reawakened from First Death, shortly after Guthrie died.

                                    Thomas Morehead

                                    In 1607, the pre-immortal Thomas Morehead was found and adopted by a family of British colons in Virginia and kiled repelling and attack by Native Americans in 1644. His teacher was Carys ap Trevyn, a Welsh immortal woman at this time married to one of the settlers and whop taught the rules of the Game and of Immortal life, infecting him with a love for individual freedom, freedom of speech, of thoughts and of actions and for the wil to defend it, by whatever means necessary.
                                    Of a pre-immortal colonist, she made an ardent supporter of American soil with centuries of immortality before him to defend his homeland.
                                    Carys ap Trevyn's pre-immortal life was like a fairy tale and the old immortal woman lived her immortality as such, a bit dellusional about things, who also infected her students with her sense of wonder and the idea that immortals would change the world around them, instead of letting the world change them.
                                    Thomas Morehead made headway in the Revolutionary effort by befriending Benjamin Franklin, helping him not only with his lighting-control experiences but also
                                    drawing a political cartoon urging the colonies to join together during the French and Indian War in 1756. The Boston Tea Party in 1773 was a direct action by colonists in the town of Boston to protest against the taxes levied by the British government under the direct influence of Thomas Morehead in his ongoing effort to free the colonies from British rule. Parliament responded the next year with the Coercive Acts, which sparked outrage and resistance in the Thirteen Colonies. The following chain of events led to the formation of the United States of America in 1776.

                                    However, Morehead couldn't have done this without the help of Scot immortal Connor MacLeod who helped him through his endeavour with the right contacts among politicians and colonist leaders.
                                    In 1775, in Boston, during the battle of Breed's Hill, a militiaman by name of Dallman Ross was shot by British soldiers and met his First Death, his body recovered by Thomas Morehead who in his turn taught Ross the rules of immortal man and of the Game. Morehead imbued the ardent 'son of Freedom' with a taste for civil liberties and a sense of wonder that matched his. But Ross also was a teacher in pre-immortal life, one who wanted to give knowledge of history to generations of young Americans. The two immortals stayed tgether for the next sixteen years until Morehead's disappearance at the Siege of Yorktown in 1781.

                                    When comparing the knowledge-driven teacher Ross became to the zealous patriot Morehead turned into, one wonder if Morehead didn't have a fatal flaw in pre-immortality that led him to become so corrupted at the core of his being : in two hundred years, Ross was a stable personality, a generound and caring soul; in two centuries, Morehead was one of the worst paranoid personalities ever recorded in immortal history.
                                    The Siege of Yorktown or Battle of Yorktown in 1781 was a decisive victory by a combined assault of American forces led by General George Washington and French forces led by General Comte de Rochambeau over a British Army commanded by General Lord Cornwallis. It proved to be the last major battle of the American Revolutionary War, as the surrender of Cornwallis’s army (the second of the war) prompted the British government to eventually negotiate an end to the conflict.
                                    Thomas Morehead was at the time of the siege a lieutnant under the orders of George Washington and had given the restless signs of an immortal sensing another one of his kind, having to prepare for a possible confrontation as well as having to lead his men in battle.
                                    The only immortals recorded in 1781 in the NorthEast region were Armand de Rochefort, John Stoppard and Morehead. The latter two took part in the Siege of Yorktown. Morehead vanished during the assault by the American forces, and since no evidence of a Quickening was to be found and since his body (either in one or two pieces) disappeared without a trace, it stood to reason Morehead was still alive out there somewhere.

                                    • Hi again, my friend. Sorry I've been absent for a bit, had some life issues to deal with due to my mother's illness and had to get carers in. I'll try and post when i can, but i am keeping up with your postings and enjoying all your chronicles.
                                      Kinda figured you'd drop the MacDonalds. So many Immortals from one clan was always an unlikely scenario considering the rarity of Immortal births.

                                      Roman Alvarez left Iberia in 1630 for North Africa and quickly came to appreciate the exotic attractions of its lands, especially the dusky women whose beauty and seductive charms he soon found irresistible. Unfortunately for the Spaniard, many of the women he came to have dalliances with had angry husbands who chased him out of town. From 1631 to 1655, he moved through the towns of Sale, Fes, Toza, Debdou, and Taroudant, before settling in Marrakesh, the new capital of Morocco, where he then set himself up as a spice merchant and began seducing several women. One of them, though, was a wife of Sultan Ahmad al Abbas, which found Alvarez stealing into the El Badi Palace for their moonlight trysts.
                                      It was there that he encountered Immortal Masid Al-Zeid, captain of the palace guard and loyal servant of the Sultan. In fact, he had served many rulers of Morocco for 400 years, passing himself as his own descendants. Alvarez tried to avoid direct confrontation with Al-Zeid, not wanting to kill a decent man over a woman, but his continued seduction of a wife of the Sultan forced Al-Zeid’s hand, accusing Alvarez of dishonouring his master. They fought outside the city walls and Alvarez was forced to slay the Moroccan Immortal but took no joy in the Quickening. Ashamed that his own actions had led to the death of a man of honour at his own hands, Alvarez slipped quietly out of Marrakesh that night and left Morocco.

                                      • Hello Apollo, no problem there, glad you like my updates. I hope your mother is doing well.
                                        Good job on the Immortal killed by Alvarez, Apollo. Having already establsihed a timeline for a Moroccan Immortals killed in 1269, I found an interesting background for Al Zeid since I didn't have any Moroccans born in the 11th century yet.
                                        As for the MacDonalds.. they are part of a number of British Immortals I ditched, including three minor ones we won't miss and the infamous Sin Eaters dynasty I truly disliked, I am sorry to say. We already have way too many serial killers and the Sin Eaters reminded me of the Halloween franchise : the first movie was very good, the second one good too, but we could have done without the other sequels, if you know what I mean.

                                        Your point about too many Immortals born in the same place... well, we have the Six of Vinland and the African clans...
                                        Speaking of which, you may delete the Ghost Brigade Immortals who lost their use a long time ago.

                                        Cheers!

                                        In 1944, Kate was a cigarette girl at Rick's Cofee in Casablanca, part of a se"cret network helping refugees from all around Europe cross Gibralter to find a boat that would take them to America. Among them intellectuals, leftists, Jews, actors, writers, all manners of men and women. Late June of this same year, a couple of Polish Jews were arrested by the Gemans and executed for alleged espionage activities; they had been sold to the Germans by an unsavory immortal working with Kate. The Englishwoman never trusted the Almoravid immortal but was forced to work with him so she could gain the trust of the local Moroccans to whom Itsweire was connected. No matter how important his connections were, she couldn't afford to let her ally betray more of the people under her charge. After Mu'ammar's death, staged as an accident, Kate kept on caring for the European travellers until the end of the war.

                                        In 1325, Talaat Harb (Hazeem Al Bachrim) and Ubaidah ibn al-Jarrah (Carter Welan) were working as bodyguards to a nobleman from the Kingdom of Castile when they met with a kingmaker from the Orient, Dalal bin Esmaeel and his bodygurd Qamar bin Rajab, both immortals working as kingmakers in service to the Kingdom of Leon. They were guests of the nobleman and revealed themselves to be political manipulators, rainsing one kingdom against another wherever they went, less for the money they got then to relive themselves of the boredom of immortality. Just to men out to enjoy themselves on the expense of the unsuspecting mortals.
                                        When Harb and al-Jarrah's host was murdered, they suspected foul play from the two emissaries, especially since the mortal played an important role in the affairs of the Kingdom a personal advisor to the King of Spain.Feeling responsible to their host and not wanting to see war erupting between the two kingdoms, for that was the two Moors' intended goal, the Ashanti warrior and his squire challenged the two immortals and took their heads.

                                        Jessica Larkin was always a willful woman, a ball of iron hiding behind a facade of innocence and formal clothing whose bite only showed during extreme situations. For example when she challenged her father who wanted to see her married at 16.Always the strong woman, the first to take risks, the first to challenged the rules of a society that forbade everything to women, safe being home bearing their husbands'children and cooking dinner for the family on Sundays. Ceirdwyn saw the rebel in Jessica, the same hellion she had been when she was a student of General Constantine 2000 years ago. And that's why Jessica undertook that expedition to Amazonia where I lost her trace as she was going up the Amazon river.
                                        It's been a year since she disappeared, I pray to God that she hasn't met the wrong immortal - Kamak or Olimpia Lima, or that she hasn't met a tribe of local headhunters. I hope I (or the next generatiosn of Watchers) will see her head intact on her shoulders, and not shrunken and mummyfied in some shop of Manaus.

                                        For all his vaunted prowess the bastard cheated again. The woman who dubbed "Jane Doe V" was a sad-faced girl with an estoc rapier who relentlessly hunted Cullen for days before he found the courage to face her. Right. Big courage he had, running her down with his car before killing her. IO guess the coke really rotted his brains. Poor girl. She didn't even have the time to pick her sword. I wonder who she was, maybe a student of an immortal Cullen killed.

                                        We took a lot of time to disclose the final fate of Jessica Larkin, but she was there all the time : ‘Jame Doe V’, an immortal woman who tried to keep tracks on Cullen and didn’t have the time to introduce herself properly before Cullen killed her.
                                        Ceirdwyn sent her student after this important member of the immortals community, only to send her to her death.

                                        Mentored by Mirabelle at this time sojourning in the
                                        monastery and taking part in its defense from
                                        Viking plunderers

                                        It is a shock to find Ingeltrude lost her head to a petty hunter like Armand of Dieulouard, after holding her own against
                                        more imposing immortals over four centuries. When Armand challenged Ingeltrude, he threatened the lives of her
                                        mortal husband and their seven foster children, promising Ingeltrude that he would cause no harm to her family is she
                                        gave him her prety head. The incensed Ingeltrude whipped out her sword and came after Armand, but Armand was a
                                        determined fighter : a woman, carrying a man's sword was blasphemy; after all it didn't fit a woman to carry a sword in
                                        those days. Then Luc, Ingeltrude's husband, interfered, wanting to help his wife. Armand killed him and took advantage
                                        of Ingeltrude's grief by going through her defense technique and take her head. Seven children became orphans
                                        because of a mortal who didn't trust his wife enough to hold her own against men with swords.

                                        Cunegonde experienced the same crisis of faith other pre-immortals born in the age of faith undergo when faced with
                                        immortality : Lord, why hath thou forsaken me ? Mirabelle of Gascony taught Cunegonde the same lesson Pagan-
                                        believer Ceirdwyn taught her : God has many faces and put immortals on this land for a good reason : as a balance in the
                                        battle of good vs evil.
                                        the rape she endured from Viking invaders and the shock of her First Death made Cunegonde lose her faith in a
                                        benevolent God, would would let his servant be soiled in His own home.
                                        She forsook the nunnery, forsook God, discarded the sword Mirabelle gave to her and settled in Strasbourg as an
                                        innskeeper, only botheirng herself with the affairs of mortals; to her, the Game didn't exist. Alas, the Game reared its
                                        ugly head in the form of a monk prawning for prey, Damon Case, the greatest champion of God in Western Europe who
                                        challenged her after reminding her that God was seeing all, and that he waited for his wayward servant in Heaven.

                                          Background
                                          Original cultural affiliation: Gascon
                                          Born: 1038, Armagnac, Duchy of Gascony
                                          First death: 1071; Executed for plotting against
                                          William VIII, Duke of Aquitaine, in a failed attempt
                                          to free the Gascons from the rule of the Duchy of
                                          Aquitaine
                                          First teacher: Lothar the Frank, at this time a mercenary
                                          in service to the Duke of Aquitaine
                                          Known associates: None
                                          Known past associates: Lothar the Frank, Eufemio
                                          Arispana
                                          Known enemies: Roman Alvarez, Knights of Charlemagne

                                          First recorded sighting: 1071, Toulouse.
                                          Found and mentored by Lothar

                                          If ever there was an example of an obsessive Immortal, it would be Gris of Armagnac, a man so consumed by hatred for fellow Immortal Roman Alvarez, it eventually led to his inevitable demise. Instead of looking to his own inadequacies, he blamed his ill luck on the Spaniard, who had no idea why the Gascon Immortal hated him so much.
                                          He left his student, Eufemio Arispana, in 1245, with the promise that he would one day come looking for him and together they would free Gascony from their occupiers. Gris would inevitably cross swords with the Knights of Charlemagne and did so while leading uprisings and civil disobedience in 1356, where he fought an inconclusive duel with Guichard of Tours in Bordeaux, and then plotting against Aquitaine again in 1399 in Toulouse, fleeing a losing battle against Baptiste Du Plat. A second clash with Guichard of Tours in Agen in 1440, where he nearly lost his head, saw Gris decide to seek the help of his former student. He spent twenty years looking for Eufemio, only to discover via local legend and stories that Eufemio had lost his head to a Spanish Immortal in 1452.

                                          The already mentally unstable Gris raged in despair and blamed the Spaniard for ruining any chance he had of freeing Gascony from the French yoke. Driven by hatred, Gris of Armagnac set out on a centuries-long quest to hunt down and kill the man who had destroyed his dream of an independent Gascony. Gris would eventually learn the name of Arispana’s killer: Roman Alvarez and would follow his trail for nearly three centuries.

                                          By the 17th century he had picked up Alvarez’s trail in North Africa where the Spaniard, since leaving Morocco, had taken up the life of an adventurer, drifting across the continent, seeking fortune and aiding those in need. In 1671, Gris caught up to Alvarez in Tripoli, but their confrontation was short when Gris fell off a rooftop and died in front of witnesses. In 1699, the two crossed swords again in Damascus, this time Gris lost his right eye to the Spaniard’s blade, but Alvarez spared his life out of pity. This would only enrage the Gascon Immortal further and when he caught up to the Spaniard again in Constantinople in 1722, their third duel would be the last. This time, Alvarez did not spare his pursuer and the Gascon’s obsession ended at the walls of Constantinople.

                                            The immortal Neville Sutton killed by Agathe Vierny in 1919 has been cross-identified as John Glasmore, a British officerstationed in Botany Bay, Australia, in 1893. Sutton/Glasmore was huntign down escapees from the Botany Bay, leadign to their unnecessary deaths and was confronted by Isadora Wynther, at this time married to a British colon in Botany Bay.
                                            Sutton decided the woman needed to be taught a lesson, but Isadora is a superb sword, one of the best swords in Western Europe and she is he one who landed Sutton on his knees. Qshe couldn’t take his head because of interfering mortals, but atlast Sutton paied for his crimes when he ordered the deaths of Punjabi mortals protesting the presence of the British Empire in India.

                                            Michael Rojek's write-up

                                            Rojek's last quarry was Derek Markham. I wonder what he has accomplished by taking his head. Did he enjoy his
                                            Quickening ? I cannot help but notice that most players of the Game are either delusional, psychotic or self-righteous
                                            champions of good vs evil (aren't you, Mister MacLeod), bent on challenging and killing immortals until only one remains; I know, it is the point of the Game, but look at it this way : of the five hundred plus immortals living on Earth presently, 88% are living AWAY from the Game : they don't take challenges, and avoid each others, or sometimes befriend each others, but the point is : they don't spend their time taking heads.

                                              Tiresa Toleafoa was digusted by the violence of the Game, by the decapitation she was forced to witness and in awe before the power of the Quickening, the gigantic fireworks which followed the passing of the Samoan’s Quickening in the body of her Immortal friend Mondo. To her life should be more than senseless violence and killings and Immortal life more than just the Game and rules to live by. She si a free spirit and won’t have it any other way. But can she truly spend the coming 20th 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.

                                              Not one to play the Game, Felix didn't even own a sword and preferred to know death could come any time to give meaning to his immortal life. It is this fear of death that gave a sense, a purpose to his immortality, allowing him to live his passion for photography and his more unnatural taste for young girls and boys. The dirty old man certainly had a taste for prebubescent children; a taste he triggered in a former "student" of his, Gerard Kragen, who had been a shy boy when he first knew him and turned him into his lover when he was barely twelve. Gerard grew up to be a disturbed man until his First Death during a dinner held by Lester at his home in Washington.
                                              The following century saw Felix as a photographer in San Francisco where he created a scandal by sleeping with several pensionnaries of Kristin Gilles' School for Wayward Children: Kristin's duty was to protect her young charges and this is why she came after Lester, knowing well she could never hope to enthrall a man who had a penchant for girls of early teenagehood; Lester left town in a hurry, like the coward he was, and was never seen again until Linda Flaherty took him out in San Francisco, at a time when she vas investigating a sex scandal involving young girls and a professional photographer who turned out to be Lester.

                                                  • Been a bit distracted this week owing to my mum's health issues, Gardner. Hope to complete the chronicle I've come up with for a female Immortal with an unhealthy romantic obsession with Roman Alvarez; a student of Swenja Baatz and Lootje De Groot, she is the only female Immortal Alvarez killed. And she is the reason Alvarez would fall to Swenja's blade in 2018.
