  • 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

    Meanwhile...

    THE CHRONICLE OF ROMAN ALVAREZ

    Helio Trigoso

    Age: 538
    Known aliases: Henrique Villa, Torquato Baia,
    Feliu Alas
    Notable characteristics: Strategic thinker;
    Portuguese patriot
    Weapon: Two-handed Iberian longsword

    Status
    Most recent base of operations: Lisbon,
    Kingdom of Portugal, Iberian Union
    Occupation: Shadow advisor to King Philip III
    of Portugal
    Prior occupations: Bodyguard to nobility, soldier
    Roster of Immortals Status: Deceased
    Date: 10 Nov 1629
    Place: Lisbon
    Victor: Roman Alvarez
    Watcher: Jose Azocar

    Background
    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...

      Angus MacDonald becomes :

      Farhan Black
      Known aliases : Danyl Kennedy, Jaden
      McGreggor, Kaiden Dickson
      Notable characteristics : None
      Weapon : 16th century Pirate saber
      Recorded kills : None known

      Status
      Most recent base of operations : Lima, Peru
      Occupation : Insurance scam
      Prior occupations : Pirate ship captain
      Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
      Date : 12 May 1990
      Place : Lima
      Victor : Gavriel Larca
      Watcher : Research, South America immortals

      Background
      Original cultural affiliation : Scottish Highlanders
      Born : 1401; Kintyre Scotland
      First death : 1431, Battle of Inverlochy, part of the
      Scottish clans war

      First recorded sighting : 1660. Tortuga Island,
      Carribean Sea. Stole a ship belonging to Gavriel
      Larca, pirate ship captain

      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.

      From the Chroncile of Gavriel Larca




      Ramsay MacDonald becomes

      Ramsay Munro
      Known aliases : None
      Notable characteristics : Hypnosis talent, ablle to
      tame any animal of Austrlian wildlife

      Australia Guiding Linda Flaherty on a tour in the
      Outback, Linda inve’stigated tales of a crazed
      white savage wrestling crocodiles

      I suppose we needed Crocodile Dundee on the Immortal scene I nAustralia, yet another cliché of the Australian myth for the Europeans and Americans who come visit us. Ramsay 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.

      That bastard Essig went cracker on my poor captain, challenging him to a fight and forcing him into the wors brawl I ever seen as a Watcher ! It wasn't even a fitht, more like an execution; poor Sebastian Hay disliked the Game and didn't want to fight. Oh, to be true, he had a good teacher with Connor MacLeod in Glencoe, but not even MacLeod could drive him to kil others of his kind. He only wanted the peace of the sea and to be left to his own business, my man.
      Well, Captain Hay shall sail the seas no longer because of that German pig !

      Ben Mortimer, January 1726

      Estelle Malembo and the Congorillas,have been dishing out justice on the countless women and girls who were raped during the war in the Congo, hunting and killing soldiers perpetrating those heinous acts. They are like demons, appearing, killing and then disappearing in a puff of smoke.

      Tired fo the doom and gloom, and having found beautiful pictures of Tuareg women, the Tuareg fabled Sisters have been foudn alive by the Watchers...

      Sisters of the Night Lella ult Allgoui
      Known aliases : Leyla

      Sisters of the Night Tamagit ult Ehenkouen
      Known aliases : Malikah

      Sisters of the Night Tahat ult Ibrahim
      Known aliases : Rihanna

      Sisters of the Night Demu ult Khebbi
      Known aliases : Delilah

      Sisters of the Night Kana ult Khyar
      Known aliases : Qadira

      Sisters of the Night Tiguent ult Heguir
      Known aliases : Sabah


      Roster of Immortals Status : Inactive

      How green was my oasis in the middle of the desert of Sahara, I had good company with divine Almuntaha and her six immortal sisters. I posed as a western prince and was lavishly gifted by the presence of those women. Like a pig in .. fertilizer, to the very least. Seriously, Ibn Mohamed Kara was too young to have been Almuntaha's teacher and Amanar 'warrior of the desert" was truly me in a time when a commanded a tribe of Tuaregs. We got lost in a desert storm, my men and our camels buried under the sand and only I survived to be found by Almuntaha's youngest sister, Sabah. Beautiful Sabah, 14-years of in appearances and the manners of a woman. The six other women had grance and qualities too and they new well the dance of the seven veils, the dance of the saber, the preparation of the makroud, the sophistication of sexuality and how to please a man. Was it my charisma or did they sense something else in me ? Did they fear the ancient horseman in me ? I believe they didn't, because I never hurt them or hurt their feelings. Rihanna, Delilah, Leyla, Qadira, Sabah, Malikah and finally Almuntaha who survived her sisters well into the 20th century. I have lost trace of those wonderful women over the centuries and when finally I met again with Almuntaha, she told me with sadness in her eyes that she parted from her sisters long ago for the love of an Oriental man who took her away from her heaven..

      Inah Gaetswe
      Known aliases : The Black Mamba

      Nantobeko, Ayondela Kawime
      Notable characteristics : None
      Weapon : Tribal spear
      Inconclusive fight against Hipolito Cabral, 1625
      Ernst Daimler, 1904

      Status
      Most recent base of operations : Huambo,
      Bié plateau, Central Angola
      Occupation : Rebel fighter
      Prior occupations : Militant, UNITA, anti-colonial

      Roster of Immortals Status : Missing
      Date : 4 October 1986
      Place : Huambo
      Victor : N.A
      Watcher : Research, Southern Africa

      Background
      Original cultural affiliation : Mapungubwe
      Born : 1192; Kingdom of Mapungubwe, Greater
      Zimbabwe
      First death : 1220, During fall of the Kingdom
      First teacher : Chima Onyali
      Known past associates : Chima Onyali, Queen
      Anne Nzinga, Olapede Chukwu
      Known ennemies : Gavriel Larca
      First recorded sighting : 1513. Greater Zimbabwe
      In battle against Gavriel Larca during Portuguese
      exploration of the land

      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

          First recorded sighting : 1781. Yorktown, VR
          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.

            Background
            Original cultural affiliation: Moroccan
            Born: 1231, Fes, Almohad Caliphate of
            Morocco
            First death: 1269; Capture of Marrakesh from
            the Almohads by the Mannids of Morocco
            First teacher: (any ideas?)
            Known associates: None
            Known past associates: Tarik ibn Ziad

            First recorded sighting: 1269, Marrakesh, Morocco.


            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.

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.

              Original cultural affiliation : Colonial American
              Born : 1676; Province of Avalon, Newfoundland
              First death : 1696, Killed by Frech troops durign
              Avalon Peninsula Campaign
              First teacher : Ceirdwyn

              Known past associates : Matthew of Salisbury,

              First recorded sighting : 1696. Province of Avalon
              Found and mentored by Ceirdwyn, posing as English colonist

              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.

              Sarah Panzer, November 1946.

              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.

              Al McConnel, May 1989.

              UPDATE, 18 February 2011

              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.

              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.

              She is a cop. And a good cop. Patrolling the streets of Los Angeles is giving her thrills she can no longer get from the Game, tired as she is of the never-ending battle for survival that has been her curse for the past fifteen centuries. Her mother, known to her Bantu tribe as an old witch and called in Swahili Fire from the Sky, taught her the ways of womanhood, the ways of men, the arts of tribal warfare and of the Game. She taught her about painting and respecting the laws of nature. According to the reports about the 2004 gathering of Kellistra's students in Switzerland, Fire from the Sky may well have been a past identity of the former Horsewoman, but no conclusive proof was established. Zuwarah became a warrior-woman and an artist, alternating her life between travelling the world, discovering new sensations, exploring new walks of life, and taking the heads of any immortal foolish enough to challenge her. And there had been many.
              Few immortals had been her friends, aside Fire from the Sky : there had been her six brothers and sisters, a Moor and his squire, a legendary Mycenean keeper of the Methuselah stone. That was all. A new century was born from the graves of hundreds of souls, the good and the bad, the ugly and the charming, the tormented and the wicked. None had been spared. When Y2K's birth-pangs ended, the immortal community breathed in relief as much as in pain : many of them were dead, but life was going on and others would be born. They still had to hide, to teach their young, to meet mortals and fall in love, to fight each other, but at least they could rest. There weren't many of them in the world, six hundred at most. But still, life went on. And Zuwarah of the Bantu people smiles to herself as she strolls down the street for another day of work.

              • Glad you liked Masid Al-Zeid's chronicle. I appreciate the changes you made to fit it in with the others. That's great work and some interesting tales there. Appreciate the other adjustments, nice job again, my friend.

                THE CHRONICLE OF ROMAN ALVAREZ

                Gris of Armagnac

                Age: 684
                Known aliases: Armand Gris, Armand of
                Gascony
                Notable characteristics: Gascon patriot; obsessive
                personality, blames Immortal Roman Alvarez for
                ruining his life
                Weapon: Frankish broadsword
                Inconclusive fight against Guichard of Tours, 1356, 1440;
                Baptiste Du Plat, 1399; Roman Alvarez, 1671, 1699

                Status
                Most recent base of operations: Constantinople,
                Ottoman Empire
                Occupation: Independent means; hunting Roman
                Alvarez
                Prior occupations: Political agitator, nobleman
                Roster of Immortals Status: Deceased
                Date: 10 Sept 1722
                Place: Constantinople
                Victor: Roman Alvarez
                Watcher: Habib Younis

                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.

The killer left the area in a hurry and remaisn undentified.

                    Tiresa Toleafoa's chronicle

                    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.

                    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.

                    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 was mentored by Inah Gaetswe and ran agaisnt Hippolito Cabral in 1625, in war agaisnt the Portuguese like her mentor. Kizzy Afrani became the third Black Mamba, though she had no relation to the two previous ones, having been mentored by Kashta of Nubia, the legendary "Son of Sudala" and she gave hell to German commander Ernst Daimler in 1907 before disappearing like the two previous Mambas.
                    The following Mamba to take that name was Nantobeko of Batusoland, a freedom fighter for four separate decades, 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 we know of was Ayondela Kawime, a rebel fighter in Angola who was mentored 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 allow to file those five ladies among the list of Missing Immortals, rather than Deceased.
                    They may still be living out there, somewhere, waiting together for the time of the Gathering.

                        • 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.

                          Cheers

                          • Sorry to hear about your mum, Apollo, I hope she will be all right. Swenja and Lootje's student sound interesting, I am looking forward to read about her story and the reason why Alvarez was defeated by Swenja. I always felt a woman would be the death of Alvarez sooner or later. In a touch of irony it is one of your creations who was killed by another one of the characters you created.
