    Here's that chronicle i promised:

    obsession with Roman Alvarez, jealous of any

    1912, 1958; Amanda of Normandy, 1899, 1926

    Status
    Most recent base of operations: Vancouver, Canada

    pirate, noblewoman
    Roster of Immortals Status: Deceased
    Date: 10 Sept 1998
    Place: Vancouver
    Victor: Roman Alvarez
    Watcher: Richard Williams

    Background
    Original cultural affiliation: English
    Born: 1747, Port Royal, Colony of Jamaica,
    British West Indies
    First death: 1770; Daughter of British naval officer,
    killed in captivity after being kidnapped by pirates
    First teachers: Swenja Baatz & Lootje De Groot
    Known associates: None
    Known past associates: Talia Bauer, Swenja Baatz,
    Lootje De Groot
    Known enemies: Roman Alvarez, Amanda of Normandy

    First recorded sighting: 1771, Tortuga Island, Hispaniola.
    Found by Swenja and Lootje in the pirate stronghold, mentored
    by them and became part of their crew

    Swenja and Lootje’s favourite student, Arabella Rider was the daughter of a British naval officer and his wife stationed in Port Royal, who was abducted in a lightning raid by pirates and killed while trying to escape. Swenja Baatz and Lootje De Groot, themselves pirates at this time, found the spirited Englishwoman hiding out on Tortuga Island a year after she had been killed trying to escape her captors. They brought her into the fold, helped her murder the pirates responsible for her ordeal, and she joined them on their ship, scouring the high seas.
    She was to cross paths with Roman Alvarez in 1796 on the Dutch Gold Coast in West Africa, as a captain of her own pirate ship and now known as Black Bella, where she was buying and selling slaves. Alvarez was there gold mining while secretly rescuing slaves and hiring them as freemen. Rider didn’t take kindly to another Immortal interfering in her business and confronted the Spaniard. Alvarez doesn’t fight female Immortals but was forced to defend himself from the furious attack of the Englishwoman. However, the fight quickly became a passionate encounter between the sheets and a six-month affair that saw Rider lose the loyalty of her crew, who abandoned her. And when Alvarez moved on a mere few weeks later, Rider was hurt and angry, swearing that the Spanish Immortal would pay for toying with her feelings.

    They would meet again in 1874 in the Old West when Alvarez was a US Marshall and Rider, now known as Anabelle “Belle” Roper, had a reputation throughout New Mexico and Arizona as a fearsome gunslinger. She had even re-united with her teachers, Swenja and Lootje, joining them on several bank raids. Alvarez was involved with a female rancher who Rider murdered in a fit of jealousy, forcing Alvarez to fight her again. Alvarez won, but couldn’t bring himself to take the head of a woman he’d been intimate with.
    Rider would next appear in the records as a master thief, clashing with Amanda of Normandy in Asia in 1899 and then again with Alvarez in Peking, China, in 1912, harassing a mortal woman the Spaniard was involved with. Defeating her again, the Spaniard still couldn’t bring himself to kill her. She fought Amanda for a second time in the US Midwest in 1926, before a penultimate fight with Alvarez in Paris in 1958 when the Spaniard was an Interpol agent hunting Rider.

    Their final confrontation came in September 1998 in Vancouver. Alvarez was at this time a detective married to a mortal woman named Stephanie. Rider was running an underground brothel, blackmailing local dignitaries and police officers, Alvarez was investigating her activities. Rider took her revenge on the Spaniard, murdering his wife to goad him. Finally, she had crossed a line and Alvarez, mad with grief, tracked her down and took her head after a brief, but ferocious, duel.
    When Swenja Baatz and Lootje De Groot discovered ten years later that their student was long dead, fallen to the blade of another Immortal, they would spare no expense trying to discover the identity of her killer, but it would take nearly a decade to learn the truth.

    • I am glad my stories and updates are helping.
      Lovely chronicle, very well written and detailed. Great connectiosn to Swenja and Lootje and to Roman Alvarez. Poor guy...
      In an effort to represent different ethnies from the Carribbeans in the chronicles and since we have enough British ladies as it is...

      Actress : the lovely Jamaican born, LA based actress Shauna Chin, most known for her role as Richard Blackburn's fiancée Claudine on 'The Blackburns of Royal Palm Estate' . Besides, I needed an Immortal woman born in Jamaica. If you don't like her I have in mind the lovely Olivia Pope from tv series Scandal.

      Do you agree with this ? I hope my idea is to your liking...

      • I have no problem at all with the adjustment, my friend. Appreciate the addition.

        As an interlude to the Roman Alvarez chronicle i'm currently finalising the details of an addition to the records of the Sacred Order. Some secrets have been revealed in the Order's Black Vault, secrets that have been hidden from mankind for thousands of years; ancient scrolls detailing ancient advanced civilisations pre-dating the accepted evidence, Immortals living in communities, ruling mighty empires; a great cataclysm, the fabled First Immortals and the true origins of the Game (Memnet-Ra didn't start the Game, he hi-jacked the tradition for his own purposes) and the remains of a decapitated Immortal which the Order have kept hidden for decades who pre-dates the earliest chronicles.

        Coming soon...

        • You have definitely wetted my appetite, Apollo ! Meanwhile... with the first swords having been fabricated around 1600 BC in the Near East, I though best to rectify the death dates for the following Immortals :

          Victor : Tizkar of Sumer

          There was once an ancient immortal referenced in the chronicles of Magos of Ur for the 19th century BC today formally identified as a past student of Illi-Adda of Assyria and associate of the truly ancient Oromedon of Urkesh, oldest known immortal. His final fate has been found to be a quarry of Tizkar of Sumer in 1460 BC in Babylonia, thus putting a name on another unknown kill of the Sumerian headhunter.

          Victor : Tizkar of Sumer

          Methos's earliest recorded appearance is placed in the Early Dynastic Period of Sumer when he met the malevolent immortal known as Tizkar of Sumer, around 2600 BC; two hundred years later he is recorded as having met an ancient immortal known as Menahem who told him that Methos, Tizkar and himself weren't exeptional beings : other existed across the world, even in lands that had yet tpo be discovered by mortals. Menahem's chronicles is nearly non-existent as is the case of most of the ancient immortals who disappeared centuries before the comign of Christ, but we do know he was killed by Tizkar in Sumer, around 1350 BC since Tizkar told Carnaban he had killed his teacher fifty years ago before he took he head.

          I also would like the secrets of the Black Vault to give us more insight into the African continent, especially Sub-Saharan countries.
          There are a lot of stories to be found when studying the history of Kush, of the Empire of Mali or the Songhai Empire...

          Cheers!

          • Okay, my friend, here's PART ONE of the Secrets of the Black Vault:

            From the Records of the Sacred Order
            24.10.18

            We have known ever since the existence of the Order was confirmed by Joe Dawson that its Immortals have in their possession secrets and artefacts that, if revealed, could change history as we know it. Their Black Vault, overseen by the Master of the Black Books, is purported to contain the lost treasure of the Knights Templar, the Spear of Destiny, and even the Ark of the Covenant. But perhaps most valuable of all is the secrets contained in tablets, scrolls and papers the Order rescued from the Great Library of Alexandria and from other buried temples and sacred sites in Europe, South America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. The Order has classified this information as too devastating to be revealed to mankind at this time.

            The First Immortals

            According to what is known to archaeologists and historians, the first civilisations emerged in around the 3rd millennium BC, although city states such as Ur were founded circa 3800 BC. The earliest Immortal in our chronicles is currently recorded as being born in Egypt in 4100 BC. The Order has since uncovered evidence that several great civilisations pre-date the current accepted historical evidence, indicating that humans have existed for much longer than previously believed, but that a Great Cataclysm occurred circa 5600 BC (possibly caused by a meteorite strike) that wiped out all evidence of these mighty empires, the source of the Great Flood myth in most world belief systems.

            In the Black Vault are the skeletal remains of an Immortal the Order were unable to identify until recently. The body was recovered from an Antarctic glacier in 1981 after being discovered by a Russian research team. The team was led by a Russian military officer we identified as Immortal Konstantin Boklov, a sometime-ally of the BMR. Russia lost contact with their team and sent a rescue party which found them in late September 81, but the entire team was dead: 12 military officers, 22 civilians and Boklov, beheaded with evidence of a Quickening, and the remains they uncovered were missing. Unknown to us at the time but now confirmed, it was the work of the Order. Instead of sending a Pathfinder and Sentinel to recover the remains, they dispatched The Apostate, who slaughtered the Russians and recovered the body himself. It has taken until the present day for the Order to positively identify and date the skeleton. Found with the body was a sword made of iron and an identified metallic composition. Since the first swords were previously noted to have started being forged in 1600 BC, the Order concluded that knowledge of how to manufacture swords had been lost in the Cataclysm and had to be re-learned from scratch nearly 5,000 years later. The Order were able to estimate the time of death of the Immortal at circa 7000 BC and that he was about 2,000 years old when he died, which dated his birth as circa 9000 BC. The Order firmly believe, from the records in the Black Vault, that he was a guard at the Temple of Poseidon on the continent of Atlantis, at a time when Immortals and mortals lived peacefully side-by-side.

            PART TWO to come...

            Cheers

            • Good story there, Apollo! An Immortal from Atlantis;;; that's very good.That means Immortals were already in existence by the time of the Great Flood .
              I wonder if Joe Dawson discloed his finds to the Watcher Tribune, now ran by Ravenwood and what was the reaction of Deoneces and Kyra when learning of the Sacred Order and the Immortal from Atlantis.

              Here is the unlucky Konstantin Boklov. Plaed by Arnold Schwarzenegger in Red Heat. Not that it made any difference in the end, against the Apostate. The Russian terminator against the Order's own terminator.

              Konstantin Boklov
              Known aliases : Dimitri Ivanovitch Kaminski

              Antarctica
              Occupation : Colonel, Army of Russia, occasional
              ally of BMR; leading a Russian research team
              Prior occupations : Soldier, Imperial Army of
              Russia; officer, Russian Special Services

              Known associates : Immortals of Mother Russia
              Known past associates : Victor Markov
              Known ennemies : Caspian
              First recorded sighting : 1763 North Caucasus
              Found and rescued by Victor Markov before
              Caspian could decapitate Boklov


              I did some research on Bronze Age swords, there existed copper-made daggers around 2800 BC, though I have a hard time imagining Methos, Tizkar of Sumer and Gilgamesh taking heads with this kind of weapons. Around 1700 BC swords started being manufactured, so who knows. Maybe I didn't need to write in those updates about the Bronze Age Immortals I posted.

              Prometheaus 's death date is changed from 1600 BC to 1700 BC for conveneince sake as well as Carnaban killed by Tizkar around 1650 BC according to the chronicle of his teacher, Menahem, killed in 1600 BC.

              First recorded sighting : 550. Valley of the Gange,
              india. Challenged Xanthia of Melitus to a fight and
              lost, infecting her with a Dark Quickening

              According to Wikipedia, Bronze Age swords appeared from around the 17th century BC, in the Black Sea region and the Aegean, as a further development of the dagger. They were replaced by iron swords during the early part of the 1st millennium BC.Methos told MacLeod that he remembers taking his first head 5000 years ago, around 3.000 BC. How did he do that, I wonder, with the first swords being manufactured around 1700 BC... Did he used a stone axe ? Or were swords in existence around 5.000 BC and the craft for building them got lost between that time and the 16th century BC ? Unless he told yet another half-truth to the Highlander...
              A possibility he that he used a copper-made dagger around 2800 BC, it's not huge but it could do the work.

              • Thanks, Gardner. Glad you approved of the first instalment. There are many more secrets to be revealed, including Immortal enclaves around the world, Immortals ruling mighty city states, and the tragic story that led to the discovery of Quickenings, the origins of the Game (more accident than a design), and why post-Flood Immortals know nothing about their pre-Flood progenitors.
                I've spent a lot of time while caring for my parents researching in my downtime all the myths and beliefs relating to the supposed pre-Flood world, the civilisations that were supposed to have existed and found a wealth of material for a world where Immortals once co-existed and lived openly side-by-side with mortals. Many cultural myths imply that the life-spans of humans before the Flood were extremely long, in the thousands, ripe material for someone constructing an AU world filled with Immortals! Lol

                Oh and thanks for the Boklov chronicle. I was kinda hoping you couldn't resist tackling that one...! Lol

                Re: Methos. Is it possible he got his hands on a pre-Flood sword? The art of making them was lost in the Cataclysm, but that doesn't mean some of them couldn't have survived the tsunami to be discovered later. Would the irony have been lost in Methos wielding a weapon once carried by his Immortal progenitors.

                PART TWO coming soon!

                Cheers

                • Ah ! The origins of the Game ! Hoping this is not Zeist (wink!) I like your new ideas but I believe the less Watchers and Ravenwood know about the origins of the Game and Immortals... the better.
                  Still waiting for the stories you find, Apollo.
                  Methos and a pre-Flood sword... interesting.

                  Cheers!

                  Update :

                  I haven't heard from you in a while, I hope everything's okay. Here is a little pruning:

                  Barnaby Quick, too similar to Jasper Abraham
                  Odetta Luitjens/Aubrey Latimer, similar to Swenja Baatz and Lootje De Grot.
                  All three to be deleted.

                  • Thanks for your concern, Gardner. Still here. Been very busy as my parents' carer, so i haven't had a chance to do an update yet. I hope to get another instalment up in the next week if i can.

                    • No problem, Apollo.
                      Meanwhile... more pruning, redundant and useless characters.

                      Blaine Castle doesn’t hunt headhunters to rid the world of scum and bring balance to the Game like his teacher Henry of Kent does, he hunts and kills them out of sheer hatred for the Immortals whom he perceives robbed him of his Christian mortality and destroyed his family in 1987. For the past thirty years, a score of “evil” Immortals, some of them players of the Game, have fallen to his sword with no small help from his guns, shooting and asking questions later. He has become even worse than the Immortals he kills and word on the street is that Henry of Kent is looking out for him, perceiving his wayward student does more harm to the Immortal community than the killers he dispatches. It is not the first time one of Kent’s disciples has fallen to the dark side (ref. Gerzon Telek Chronicle), but where Telek was addicted to Quickenings, Castle is addicted to violenc,e a product of his time who cannot change and adapt himself to a changing world.

                      The Ifeanaso Chronicle tells the story of a family from the Nri Kingdom of Western Africa whose members were killed by the Game one by one, until only one remains active. The family first appears in the 14th century, spotted by Olapede Chukwu's Arab Watcher during the collapse of the Nri Kingdom, subsequent from invasions by external forces and by the slave trade from Maghreb. The six Af'rican Immortals were noted as a father, mother, two daughters, one son and one son-in-law who stood together against the Arabs and fought the Portuguese during the 15th century before being taken as captives and subsequently deported to Colonial Brazil where they led a slave rebellion and founded a community of fugitive slaves near Sao Paulo. From there they disappeared from Watcher scope before re-appearing in the 1733 in the British Raj of India where they fought during the Marathan War. At this time they suffered their first loss when Adama's husband, Chikere, was killed in combat by an Indian Immortal Mahesh Khotare. Adama hunted the Marathan warrior for days without results.

                      The following century the Ifeanaso are living in Cuba during the War of Independance against the Spanish Empire and are identified as active by Robert Gould and Andrew Cord's Watchers, a pair of mercenaries fighting the Empire of Spain which troops are led by Immortal Alphonse of Gijon, head of the Spanish Cabal. Alphonse fights and kills the family's son Kamdibe, his sisters try to avenge him but are outnumbered by Alphonse's troops. The grieving family leaves Cuba and decides to reunite with their roots by travelling back to Nigeria where they spend one decade before they enlist themselves in the fabled N'Nonmiton corps of the Kingdom of Dahomey, becoming part of the legendary Dahomey Amazons.

                      Durign the French-Dahomey War the 4.000 mombers corps suffer heavy losses, unable to compete with heavily armed French Imperial troops. The Watcher Bureau for Western Africa reports that the Immortals in the corps went missing; Amara and Adaese still haven't re-appeared and weren't seen with Ikuseghan and Enobakhare before they were murdered by Xavier St. Cloud. It is possible they followed the aforementioned during their tour of the US Southeast with the Buffalo Bill Circus. Their parents are seen alive and healthy in New Orleans in 1918, respectively as restaurant manager and chief cook, specilaizing themselves in Western African and Creole meals before their work place is burnt to the ground in 1927 when an unknown Immortal takes the head and Quickening of Chidimma.

                      One cannot help being amazed by the strokes of bad luck that befell this family, unless someone really had some scores to settle with the Ifeanasos. Chialuka is still active to this day, a brooding Immortal keeping to himself and no doubt waitign for the sword that will allow him to be joined with his beloved wife and children in the afterlife, his will to live now gone.

                      the Spanish/Portuguese border

                      Henry of Kent was in Portugal when his mentor Cleophon of Athens sent him the whereabouts of a local headhunter who was bullying local Immortals and taking heads after unprovoked challenges. Henry already proficient with huntign headhunters sought the bully named Roamo Callado, a hater of Jews, rapist of women and dishonorable coward clad in armor hiding his distrust of Immortals behind a veneer of fragile invicibility. Henry of Kent knew what moves to use with the sword to not only disarm an opponent but also to dismantle an armor, with spped and skills and soon Roman was on the grounds, pieces of his armor scattered, showing the face of an ill-shaven young man with fear I nhis eyes when he understood who exacly was the Englishman challenging him : the fabled Henry of Kent, grandmaster of headhunter-slaying. Even in those times, rumors could fly fast and many Immortals knew the proclivities of Henry of Kent in the Game.
                      Callado was good with the sword against mortal opponents or non-combattant Immortals, his coawardice in the Game signed his death warrant.

                      From the Chronicle of Henry of Kent

                      Research in the Chronicle of Callado as well as cross-referencing allowed to identify five Immortals killed between 1236 and 1385. Matteus Passos was a soldier and occasional mercenary sword known as Gerald the Fearless, a mythical hero and wasn't truly interested in the Game, he didn't play it with the same vigor as Callado and his lack of heart to the matter may have lost him; Shahnaz al-Wahrani was a former disciple of Cassandra posing as a forttunes teller and Holy Woman, not that it mattered to Callado who raped the poor woman before murdering her; Callado killed Foulque Blanche during the War of the Two Peters, Foulque died an honorable death but Callado smited him, calling him a buffoon unfit to carry a sword.
                      Isaac Hernandes may have been one thousand years old and was one of the greatest rabbis to have lived, a pacific soul who never carried as sword, expecting his physical age would show how of little interest he could be to a killer like Callado; but Callado was an antisemite and to him, a Quickening was a Quickening, not matter who he killed to obtain it.
                      Finally Mafalda Mascarenhas who he killed after wreaking havok in her brothel in a drunken rage after one of Mfalda's women was saw herself unable to service him properly (Callado's sword certainly compensated for something).

                      Olapede Chukwu lived through the fall of the Empire of Ghana in 1200 when he was challenged by a Moorish warrior introduding himself as Miswar Ibn Idris, a challenger who surved an encoutner with Ibn Mohamed Kara from Southern Iberian in 1138 and was follwed for the next fifty years between Spain and Northern Africa as mercenary sword and soldier, supected of having killed several non-combattant Immortals. Chukwu lived in present Western Sudan as the Emperor’s bodyguard when the Moors attacked the land and among those Moors was Ibn Idris who thought a negro immortal as easy picking. How wrong he was.

                      The Immortal who killed slaver and hunter Atsu Laptey in 820 has been positively identified as Olapede Chukwu, marking the Nigerian immortal's first known kill. Atsu was a slaver and occasional player of the Game who learnt his swordfighting moves from the Arabs and used a Moorish broadsword. Everything about him showed how muslimized he was, having fully integrated the customs of the Arab world, going so far as to enslave his own people. To him, Chukwu was an opportunity of taking aQuickenign after a long day of purchasing and selling slaves, whikle Chukwu fought slavers in his young days.
                      The confrontation between the two Immortals was thus unavoidable.

                      over the death of his teacher and companion Atsu Lamptey

                      Everyone leaves someone behing, even an Immortal slaver and scum of the earth like Atsu Lamptey who had an unidentified companion and friend named Yoofi Mensah, a Ghanian Immortal also converted to the Muslim religion who sought to avenge not ony the death of his teacher in the 9th century but also some perceived wrongs done to him by Chukwu. There was apparently a lifelong hatred between the two men. Immortals do carry long grudges. An Arab warrior who fought the Ashanti, Yoofi confronted the Ashanti's ally, Olapede, and fought a battle witnessed by mortals who discovered a god walked among them : one who could trigger storm and lightnings anfter defeating a man in ritual combat.

                      From the Chronicle of Olapede Chukwu




                      A violent character with uncompromising morals, placing the Law before everything, possibly to atone for the countless crimes he comitted in his “youth” : Kobayashi killed Immortal holy men from Japan on orders from Matsuhiro Kanagawa who sought to destroy Master Nakano Yodarushi and thus sent his disciple after any Immortal shrine keepers he could find, helped by hired muscle who would forcefully take the unfortunate Immortal out of Holy Grounds where Kobayashi would execute him or her. So far, four that we know of were murdered, all from different religions in Japan, including a Christian priest who relocated himself to Brazil, two shintoist monks and a zen buddhist who studied under Nichiren in the 13th century. All innocent men, none of them Nakano Yodarushi.

                      Master Shigeatsu and his bodyguard Nobuyuko Mochizuki rejected the violence of the Game, Mochizuku practicing not the sword but aikido, a sport that demonstrates the uselessness of violence, prone to disarman opponents in munites and send them on their way after a good lecture from Shigeatsu. Unfortuantely, Kobayashi was stronger than Mochizuki and didn't care about Shiegeatsu's lessons. Shigeatsu got the last laugh. in the afterlife as Kobayashi became a changed man after taking the head of Master Nakano three years later anddevoted himself to bring the law to the lawless elements of Japan's Immortals.

                      Araki Iwata studied under fabled monk Nichiren alongside Master Nakano and Westerner Immortal Tak Ne, aka Juan
                      Sanchez Villalobos Ramirez. Zen allowed the three Immortals to contemplate the Game under different lights and to accept whatever Immortality could give them, including its most ludicrous aspects : the Gathering, the fact all Immortals are foundlings, the centuries fighting each others, the mysteries around the "no fighting on Holy Grounds" rule. Nichiren was mortal but he was awre of the existence of Immortals and had accepted it. Nichiren and his disciples completed the Myō-hōkke-in Kuon-ji Temple in 1281. In the 19th century this structure
                      burned down after an Immortal killed another one of his kind on Holy Grounds to be replaced by a new structure completed in the second half of the Meiji era by Araki Iwata, in the memory of his mentor and friend.

                      Hiruto Omura was the first disciple of Cardinal Giovanni Battista in the 16th century, a smurai who converted to Christianty and was ordained prist in Rome, a city where sin flourished and where the Christian word was much needed. Omura dedicated his life to the word of Christ and has been building shrines, chuirches and orphanages around the world. In more recent years he moved out to Brazil as a Catholic priest in a local prison full of sinners in need for redemption.


                      From the Chronicle of Kobayashi


                      Nakano's first death dates from 743 BC when he was an old monk trying to discover the secret of immortality so that he could benefit mankind with his knowledge; he had heard tales of immortal men and women who rose from the grave hafter having been struckl by lightning bolts. Nakano learn one of the most important lessons of his life during a stormy night when he was electrocuted by a lightning bolt and was resurrected. Since then, Nakano has crossed paths with many Immortals, including his first teacher, the ancient Sun Tzu who studied the arts of war and taught the rules of immortality to Nakano. Nakano studied Zen Buddhism under Nichiren the monk and became one of the ancient Japanese wise men known as "Yamabushis" who taught their Way to a select few. He has trained many mortals and Immortals over the centuries, including one Juan Sanchez Villalobos Ramirez (aka Tak Ne of Egypt) who learned from Nakano his metallurgy skills. Nakano was also a great sorceror and mastered the mystical power of illusion. Some of his more ambitious students, such as Kane, have desired this power and tried to kill him. His last student was Connor MacLeod, whose spiritual education he expanded, making him a better warrior, adding some illusion tricks to his skills. Nakano disappeared from Watcher records after Kane’s attempt at killing him, but we dought the Mongol managed to kill him : an old devil like Nakano with illusion-casting powers cannont be
                      put down so easily. We believe he is still living outhere, drinking to the health of past friends and enjoying his immortality.

                      tentatively recruited by Immortal Maiden as spy
                      when found living with the Uyghurs near Beijing’s
                      Forbidden City
                      First recorded sighting : 1209. Kingdom of Qocho
                      Invasion of the kingdom by the Mongols, raped
                      by Kane, killed by Yunus’ adopter son before he
                      could take her head.

                      By the 13th century, the Mongols invaded China, pillaging the homeland of the Uyghurs, devastating a community led by Immortal Yunus Ilyas. Kane led the Mongol horde and saw Yunus as easy picking, good for some “amusement” before taking her head. Kane didn’t deserve Yunus Ilyas’ Quickening and Yunus deserved her revenge against the barbarian whom she found to have been killed by Deoneces of Sparta in 1754, along with his Immortal henchmen.
                      In the 18th century, she founded a Uyghurs commuity in Beijing, near the Forbidden City where she met the Immortal Maiden and her group, the future People’s Protectorate. She refused to join the group, choosing to stay neutral in the affairs of mainland China in spite of veiled threats from the Maiden.
                      During the Dungan revolt of 1862-77,Yunus rebelled against the Quing Empire with May-Ling Shen and fought the Chinese Zodiac Immortals (ref. People’s Protectorate), gaining a lethal ennemy in the person of the Maiden; she was forced out of China and lived the rest of the 19th century in Imperial Russia where she briefly associated with Immortals of Mother Russia who needed to document Chinese presence in their homeland, gaining a valuable ally in her. In return, they made sure the Uyghurs community she was leading would stay safe in Moscow.
                      1933 and 1944 saw the Uyghurs rebelling against Chinese rule and successufully gaining their independence, with no small help from Yunus as their community leader and political activist, rebellions financed by May-Ling Shen and Jing Ke, always on the side of rebels with a righteous cause.
                      In 2018 the Uyghurs suffered agaisn from China’s rule, finding themselves in a police state with 120,000, possibly one million, of their numbers deported to internment camps. Yunus was arrested in early March of that same year along with her Watcher and hasn’t been seen again, though we suspect she must have been organising some kind of resistance against her captors inside her camp?

                      Stanislav Karloff hides behind many walls as many Immortals are prone to do, usually trying to avoid the Game, a tragic opast, former lovers or old ennemies. The bespectacled, stern headmaster is rumored to be an ogre among the studenrt body here at the school; little do the students know this is a 1200-years old Immortal with his own fear of death, of the Final Gathering and that his own end may come in a time when his students turn into middle-aged men and women. He envies their mortality and the mark they can live on the world because though he has helped build the Ottoman Empire in his youth, he has seen the Ottomans Empire crumble like dust and he remembers the old saying “I will show you fear in a handful of dust”.
                      The ogre of Snow Valley is an empty shell, his dreams of conquest vanished in a puff of smoke, waiting for a player of the Game to come after him and finally deliver him from his torments.

                      fight against Clifford Holden

                      With François Marchette having recently relocated to New Orleans, we can expect him to reunite with an old missing ennemy of his, Cartier LeTorve, a criminal mastermind from Quebec who had words with the Frenchman in 1836 and was first spotted ibn our records as a French Canadian soldier and desertor who ran away from the army of Canada with the pay righfully belonging to the men in his regiment. In the followign twenty years he used his money wisely to create a criminal empire in the Big Easy before he was confronted by Marchette and was forced to simulate a public death. He never re-appeared since but we suspect him to still be at large. Maybe even here I nNew Orleans, waitign for us to spot him again. And possibly to resume his quarrel agaisnt the old Napoleonic soldier.

                      Ta Duy Quang had a ring one each finger of his hands and a finger in each illegal dealings in Vietnam : gamblings, prostitution, opium, contract killing, you name it. A corrupt official who thought he descended from Godhood because of his Immortality. He believed he would reign over Vietnam until the end of time, and for five hundred years he did, creatign an age of darkness that din’t seem to end, leading an army of assassisn and mercenaries he called the One Hundred Monkeys Army, invicible warriors whose strenght was boosted with drugs, generations after generations of men and women corrupted to their very core. It took the strenght of several Southeastern Asian heroes led by Xuan, then married to Viet rebel Tran Cao, to finally put en end to Ta’s Empire during the legendary Tran Cao Rebellion of 1516 which saw the destruction of Ta’s army of invicible monkeys, expect for a chosen cadre of them and Ta himself, who disappeared before Xuan could took him out of the Game.
                      Did Xyan eventually find him and kill him ? We are not sure. He may be dead at last, or still be out there, building another army, readying himself fo the Final Gathering.

                      Hellifre Club Roderick Kingsley
                      Recorded kills : the Hellions, pre-Immortal children

                      Roderick Kingsley fancied himself a master of mystical arts and often invoked the power of Azaroth and Lucifer during ceremonies involving human sacrifices. When he murdered the young pre-Immortals used as pawns by the Hellfire Club, he went too far. Aldrich Monk confronted him and cast him out of the Club, but Roderick wanted the power and wrestled control of the Club leadership by challenging Monk. The fight ended with the death of Kingsley, the young people he decapitated, all recruited from the streets of Boston, Baltimore, Philadelphia and New-York between 1888 and 1898..

                      Briefly mentored by Salman Djebar, witnessed his
                      final battle against Selim Ubadah

                      Eleven years after leaving France, Roman Alvarez sided with Navarrese military engineer andd general Don Pedro Navarro during the conquest of Oran by the Spanish Empire. On 16 May 1509, Christians stormed the city. Watcher records write of one Immortal leading his men against the Spaniards, Farouk Slimani, an eight hundred years old Algerian who had protected his city against every possible invasions and had killed his fair share of Immortals in service to the Kingdom of Tlemcen for three hundred years.
                      On the 20 May, Cardinal Cisnero whom Don Pedro Navarro served, entered Oran, with Immortal Roman Alvarez in tow, second-in-command to the Spanish general. Alvarez soon found himself facing the Immortal Slimani.
                      Alvarez was going to be his latest quarry but the Spaniard was a resourceful Immortal who fought for a cause he felt was just. But then he faced Farouk Slimani, a good man also fighting for his cause, determined to take the head and power of Alvarez. The fight was long, Alvarez prevailed and he was the one to take the power of the Algerian. After Alvarez was done taking the Quickening, he looked lost and sad. As he he realised he may have killed the wrong kind of Immortal and that he may have been on the wrong side of the battle.

                      • Greetings, Gardner.

                        It's been a long time since I've visited this site. Unfortunately, my mother passed away in January after a long and difficult illness. I had to care for her and my dad full time for months so this site became the last thing on my mind. Although still feeling my mum's loss, I've started getting back into a routine again as i know it's what she would have wanted. So i'm back tentatively at the moment and look forward to your postings again, my friend.

                        A mini-Gathering happened in the Pacific Northwest between Seattle and Salem, OR, with four Immortals killed in the span of five weeks. All were active players of the Game and sought confrontations whenever they met those of their kind. While none of those Immortals had quarrels with their targets, they fought with abandon and lost their lives. They were Blaine Castle, Dorothy DeShields, Roccxo Mangiatesta and Lydia Melchior. This mini-Gathering could herald more of this kind.

                        First recorded sighting : 1132. Vietnam
                        Found and mentored by Ha Si Loc

                        In 1975, Duncan MacLeod was in Vietnam during the fall of Saigon after his nasty business with Kage and the Khmer Rouges and he met up with Nguyen Du and Trai who were opium and women traffickers during the Vietnam war. MacLeod tried to protect a teenaged girl who fell in the clutches of the twin brothers but MacLeod was clearly overmatched before the twin brothers and was lucky to lose the two brothers during the chaos of Saigon’s fall. He left for the United States with his Cmabodian student May Samphan and the Vietnamese girl to whom he paid a full scholarship in New York state and was reunited with the two brothers who emmigrated to the USA in 1980 as so many Southeast Asian Immortals are prone to do. They could have found a good opportunity to challenge MacLeod in Seattle, WA, and to finish him for good this time but the Highlander is a seasoned Immortal who made short work of the two brothers in the span of a few days after an encounter with a mortal girl from Saigon who was forced into prostitution by his old ennemies in Seattle. The poor girl was actually met by MacLeod's girlfriend, Tessa Noel and Tessa found herself in danger for interfering with her new protegé's plight. And if htere is one thing the Highlander is good at it is protecting his own.

                        • It's good to see more updates from you, Gardner. Really cheers me up. Unfortunately my recent bereavement has given me a bit of writers block and i don't feel ready to get back into my own files just yet, but i'm still enjoying your postings, my friend.

                          I think i just need a bit more time and distance to be able to put things behind me and get back into things again.

                          I''ll get there soon, i hope.

                          Cheers

                            Believing neither in God nor in the Devil, Susana Viscahio never developed any ethics in her Immortality and has squashed mankind like
                            anthills for the last three hundred years, lastly kidnapping street teens and children, for her organs donors business. More aRE missing each
                            week and clues point her as the source of this evil. She is also guilty of murdering at least five known Immortals while experimenting on
                            organs transplants, trying to keep self-regenerating hearts and kidneys for her black market business but those kind of transplants do not truly
                            work on mortals.

                            Kamak first appeared in the jungle of Amazonia during an exploratory tour by Carlos Sendaro and his wife Grace. Both immortals were
                            surprise to find an immortal among the diminutive Amazonian headhunters. We do not known how long Kamak has been an immortal, even
                            he isn't sure. From his conversations with Grace he met his first death several generations ago in circuimstances even he doesn't remember.
                            At this time, Sendaro was hiring natives on his plantation, ruling them all with an iron hand, seeing hismelf as their chosen god. Grace didn't
                            like how her husband was turning out to be and decided to take charge of Kamak's education as an immortal.
                            Secretly from her husband she taught Kamak to read and write, to speak English and to use a sword.
                            After Grace finally left Sendaro, Kamak also left and vansihed from Watcher records until he re-appeared in 1945 around the Amazon basin,
                            as a hunter, a tour guide in the 1960's and an assassin during the 70's.
                            In 1982 he was running a Tequila distillery, having retired from a life of murders and mayhem when Chang came after his head, and made
                            short work of the diminutive Aamazon immortal.

                            After her fifteen minutes of fame in the Baila Conmigo telenovella in which she played the lover of one of the story’s long-lost brothers during the 1980’s, Alessandra has faded in relative anonimity, avoidign cameras for fear of beign recognized as the long missing Aline Mendez. In one hundred years she moved from one country to another, from one tv set to another, going so far as working for Rod Serling in the 1960’s, playing in an episode of the Twilight Zone and getting acquainting to Rod’s wife, Cordieia Stanton, fellow immortal.
                            She is the immortal who inspired to Rod the story of Walter Jameson, an immortal victim of his immortality, but had to leave the Californian scene because of an affait she developped with the writer, gettign an irate reaction from the usually sweet-natured Delia Stanton. Those days, she lives in Sao Paulo, again an actress, married to her producer in the hope of inheriting his money and studio when he dies, so maybe she can get another fifteen minutes of fame.

She hopes to reunite with old experiences from her past in Latin America in 1964 when she adopted her daughter Maria, but I don’t know if she wants to become a mother again. She heard on the grapevine that Susana Viscahio is active in Peru an Immortal who murdered children to sell their organs on the black market and who had Maria in her line of sight. The confrontation ended with the two women exchanging sword blows, the fight ended forty years later with Katya’s death by the sword of Susan.

                              After March' mini-Gathering in the Pacific Northwest, USA, Immortals have been on the move in the Democratic Republic of Congo, one ofthe most violent countries in the world where the death toll left five Immortals dead. All Field Watcher personnel must now be on full alert coming mini-Gatherings that may crop up in the foreseeable future. No one forgot the carnage wrought by the Lurgan in 1985 or more recently the Immortals War of 2011-2012.

                              The colour of Roxanne Bangura’s skin isn’t what defined her as an immortal, even though her African heritage helped define her background,past history and personality. What defined her was the colour that predominated in her heart : a strong, warm yellow sun that benefited the young children in her charge, war-orphans she took under her wing and who turned her into a much better person now that she had people to care about, to feed, dress and educate. She provided shelter for them and even though she had to sell her body to survive in Kinshasa in the 19th century, being a prostitute isn’t what defined her. It was her inner strength and the love she had for her children. Strong enough that when Immortals came to her looking for an easy kill, she knew how to face them : with bared teen and a drawn Tulwar saber. She bagged five immortals in the last thirteen years we have been observing her prior to her final battle agaisnt the sword of Mohamed Baghlani, the accursed disciple of the Eternal Swords of Allah

                              If the rate of teen prostitution is rising in Cameroon today it is because of Barthelemy Kiesso, who for four centuries and a half has been specializing in the trade of human flesh. First trading slaves in the 17th and 18th century, then working In the brotels of Southeast Asia during the 1950’s, of Latin America in the 1970’s and then back to his homeland for the past decade. He managed to survive the Immortals War but eventually fell Echijole Jimah in the night from the 6th to 7th June. While the chronicle of Jimah is sparse, it is likely Kiesso may have enslaved and/or raped her at some point in the past or done some other wrong to her.

                                sword and to be an acomplished cat-burglar

                                The little kitten has claws ! Trained by Amanda, Ming-na Wen did very well on the immortal scene turning her small size into and advantage against other immortals, like Kenneth and Sarah MacLaughlin before her. No one dares scoff at her, or insult her, for this his a little hellion who will never let an adult-sized immortal humiliate or abuse her the way she was in her pre-immortal days. When Amanda took her in, the cat-burglar showed her good nature, because Kenny, Sarah, Ming-na remind her of the terrorized pauper she was when Xanthia of Melitus sheltered her centuries ago. A way for Amanda to repay the kindness Xanthia had to her.
                                I heard Nestor Poole was in Perth, we shall see if Poole takes the best of the little vixen.

                                Investigations on the death of Ulysses Dyson in 1849 was finally put to a definite end when Leo Kambaré of the Pouma Clan in New Caledonia proudly displayed the saber having belonged to Dyson in his home, stating to his friends that the saber belonged to a man his ancestors cook and ate. And he told the tale that when Dyson was killed, a sudden storm erupted and his ancestor was then possessed with the cunning, wit and courage of his fallen opponent. This tall tale naturally disguises the fact that an Immortal “savage” murdered and ate one of his kind. Fortunately for us, Leopold renounced his unnatural hungers a long time ago. Bridget Ingvarsen is in New Caledonia, loking ofr her next quarry. Wether Leopold gets a new meal or ends on the menu is the 5.000 dollard question.

                                BASE jumping is one of the most dangerous sports in the world but also a clever way to play the Game, choosing the sky a a permanent refuge, constantly on the move, unpredictable in his nature - who knows where he is going to land his feet next ? Nestor faces his fear of the Game by constantly playing it and with his life like contract killer Ida McNeal did with her trademark daredevil escapes. Exept that it cost her her life when she jumed off the World Trade Center's roof during the attack of 9/11. Nestor better be careful with his parachute, because next time he may be not be as lucky as he was when he landed in the middle of the Black Forest in 2012. Bridget Ingvarsen is good at sports too and she has been known to hunt her kind using any means necessary, inclusing skydiving in two separate occasions.

                                Kangaroo hunting is on the rise since the previous decade, more and more animals are killed for sports by trigger-happy yahoos, all led by their own private safary guide Samuel Ferguson, a Big Game hunter and player of the Game who has no trouble coming after defenceless animals. In the mid 2000’s he was operating in Eastern Cape and was lucky he didn’t see the sword of Olapede Chukwu or the blade of Rodis coming down his neck. Elephants were killed for their ivory because of him. In the 1980’s gorillas for their pelt, in the 1990’s crocs. Now he is touring the Australian bush, but he better beware : the Gathering is coming and Immortals are a more difficult kind of beings to kill than gorillas or crocs.

                                  Ever since she took out Donald Black Bear in 1983, Chrystle Lightning has been wreaking havok on the North American continent, killing with abandon, killing innocent immortals and being on the most wanted list of Henry of Kent, grandmaster of headhunters-slaying. Even Kellistra hoped to restore her to sanity but had few hopes, Jim Coltec didn’t dare approch her as Donald Black Bear was a true scourge on humanity. Moonstar was once a good woman, but lost ot us, driven by her own private demons until she chose the wrong quarry during Seattle’s Gathering in the person of Joe Muhammad, a paraplegic with no qualms using a shotgun to kill off opponents.
                                  It stands to reason Muhammad ought to be infected by Chrystle's Dark Quickening.

                                  Thomas the Rhymer, aka Terence Coventry, wasn’t too good at writing poetry, he was better at writing prose and mentoring gender-challenged mmortals like Lady Orlando. Orlando must have had a very strong will live to survive psychically in the body of an Immortal woman, likely a easoned one. We never could find her identity, she remains a “Jane Doe”, but what matters is the combination of those two Immortals, making of Orlando a very unique character. If he can survive this kind of experiment once can he survive the Gathering and be the winner ? No matter who kills him/her, he may end up becoming the One, even in a different shape.

                                    After his First Death, Derek Worth found his calling in life, to serve God on Earth and do his bidding until the time of the Gathering, when the last mmortal standing will receive the Prize. Fortunately this isn’t a Game-aggressive Immortal like Damon Case : Worth knows how to enjoy the imple joys in life and consider the idea of taking the head of a fellow Immortal to be a sin : why destroy the work of God ? Immortals are like any reature on Earth, made by God and killing each other is not only a great injustice, it is also the profanation of God’s work on Earth. He has an nteresting reasoning, he is a Christian at heart, but his views of Immortality aren’t truly realistic and I do hope his faith won’t be put to the test in too harsh fashion by the next Immortal prawning for prey. After all, Derek Worth could be the next Darius, assuming survives the final Gathering.

                                    identified as Doctor Polidori, close friend of Byron,
                                    Percy Shelley and Mary Shelley
                                    The battle between Tsaganis the blind Immortal and Lord Byron ended with the Immortal poet's death. Byron spent his Immortality either drunk r stoned on drugs and this kind of abuse took a toll on his sanity as well as his ability to outmaneuver Immortals in the Game. It is a wonder he ived this long.

                                    The final battle of slaver Morgan Walker against Methos, aka Adam Pierson, allowed to cross-identify the elusive immortal as Doctor Benjamin Adams of New Orleans, an immortal who travelled from North America to Western Europe - France and Switzerland - where he took the name of Doctor Polidori.

                                    In Switzerland, Adams befriended a trio of English poets, Lord Gordon Byron, Percy Bysse Shelley and his wife Mary Shelley who became the author of the infamous novel 'Frankenstein, the Modern Prometheus', thus eclipsing her husband's poetry with her prose. The inspiration for the novel came from two incidents in her life : the first being the death of her infant daughter, the second the death of her friend Byron accidentally hit by lightnings during a freak storm during the quatuor's stay in Geneva where Mary wrote her novel.

                                    Percy, Mary and 'Polidori' brought their friend's body in their home but were warned by Polidorito not call a doctor; 'our friend shall awake soon', he said. Disbeliving, the Shelleys were amazed to see Byron's body move convulsively with him screaming in pain as he awoke from his First Death. The fascinated friends listened in awe to Polidori's tales of immortals walking the eartth for centuries, fighting until only one remains, coming back from the dead time and time again. Polidori confessed her was Benjamin Adams from New Orleans and that he originally fled one of his kind, he also confessed he was thousands of years old and that indeed, the Wandering Jew and the fabled Saint-Germain existed as immortals and that many of folk tales and stories of dead people reviving were true.

                                    Mary became so inspired by Byron's resurrection that she found in her the story of Frankenstein : a man seeking the secrets of life, who would bring immortality to the living,; a creature born from lightnings and ceaselessly tormented by his unique condition. Polidori / Adams made her swear she would disguise herstory as a work of fiction, which she did.

                                    But we know the truth : the Modern Promotheus is Lord Byron; and iindeed he became so during the Grek War of Independance when he swore he would bring freedom to the peopleof the Balkans and participated in the Greek's rebellion against the Ottoman Empire. It is likely Polidori / Methos may have introduced Byron to Deoneces and Kyra of Sparta who accepted any help they could get, and graciously invited the poet in their covenant.

                                    June 1825 saw the siege of Messolonghi with Deoneces, Kyra and Byron defending the city against the Ottomans; Byron disappeared during those terrible days, but is believed to be still living somewhere, bringing the fire of knowledge to mortals as he always yearned to do.

                                    Few immortals were like Tsaganis, surviving though the centuries, playing the Game, moving silently though the centuries. An handicap is already a difficult thing to live with for a mortal : blindness, deafness, missing a limb are things that tamper with your life, that mess with you and can break you easily if you aren't a strong person. And it is all the more difficult - if not impossible - to live with when you are an immortal with strangers coming after your head. There are not a lot of them. Kenny, the Von Arlon children, Maria Vaccaro, Joe Muhamad. A few others whose immortality was triggered past their prime. Tsaganis trained with oriental teachers and found the ability to deflect physical attacks using the manner his Quickening interacts with other immortals' Qs. Easy to doge a sword, to blind an opponent with pepper spray and to quickly take a head with his sword hidden in his cane. Clean, quick and swift Quani Colotl didn't deserve Niko Tsaganis : he had his men bring him to him, bound and gagged and sacrificed him in his place of worship to Quetzalcoatl, Feathered-Snake God.

                                    • Thankyou for these latest updates, my friend. I'm enjoying the latest intrigues within the various Immortal skirmishes occurring around the world at the moment and can picture the personal tragedies, acts of revenge, savagery, strategy and vigilante justice within the clashes.

                                      Your stories are cheering me up until i can get my mojo back.

                                      Cheers

Immortals can be a surprising lot. Research is in motion to find Immortals killed by unidenfied opponents between 1897 and 2018 who may have been killed by the red-head pirate.

                                        Holthaus was investigating the crimes of a local serial killer in Pretoria, suspecting foul play from an Immortal, the three vicims having been found butchered and decapitated. He was wrong in the sense it was a mortal one who did the deed, however he did meet an Immortal looking for a good kill, in the person of Callestina Oyini, former disciple of Callestina of Rome, lover of Grayson and General Dariius in ancient times. Sigmund Holthaus is no more.

                                          Amadou was found by Jin Ke during the first exploration of the black continent by the Chinese; Jin Ke pefected Amadou’s skills as a warrior but centuries later Zai Jie instilled in Amadou his passion for archaeology and gave him a purpose in his life : show the world the untold wonders hidden in Africa's past history, restoring the past to help Ethiopians create a future for themselves in spite of the dire situation they face with poverty, corruption and the AIDS pandemic.
                                          Amadou's work on the Axum site helped bring proof of the presence of white colonizer around the Fourth Century AD, originating from Southern Europe.
                                          The elements that helped him bring his theory was the presence of a gladius found next to a decapitated squeletton, but Amadou didn't share his theory on who the squeletton might have been when he had his head on his shoulders !

                                          Ataui had a revenge to take in the Game, against men, against the brutality of Immortals, if only so to rid herself from the shame she suffered when she was being raped by Apolo Obote and his men in 1994. So she played the Game, she hunted those of her kind, pickign the best ones and acquiring the power she needed to face the man who still tormented her in her nightmares. She killed six that we know of but that wasn’t enough to face Apolo Obote.

                                          Stanislav Karloff hides behind many walls as many Immortals are prone to do, usually trying to avoid the Game, a tragic opast, former lovers or old ennemies. The bespectacled, stern headmaster is rumored to be an ogre among the studenrt body here at the school; little do the students know this is a 1200-years old Immortal with his own fear of death, of the Final Gathering and that his own end may come in a time when his students turn into middle-aged men and women. He envies their mortality and the mark they can live on the world because though he has helped build the Ottoman Empire in his youth, he has seen the Ottomans Empire crumble like dust and he remembers the old saying “I will show you fear in a handful of dust”.
                                          The ogre of Snow Valley is an empty shell, his dreams of conquest vanished in a puff of smoke, waiting for a player of the Game to come after him and finally deliver him from his torments.

                                          Stanislav Karloff was in Staten Island waiting for the ferry to take him to Manhattan when he sensed the presence of one of his kind, who turned out to be teenaged Vitalya Lobanova, an woman hiding in the frame of a young girl, specialized in Immortals preying on women and children. She debunked countless sex-rings in the past seventy years and now that the Gathering is on she well intends to survive.

                                          She also had a score to settle with Karloff who, in 1954, slaughtered scores of innocent Bulgarian civilians while serving the Communist regimen. Vitalya's foster family was among hte dead and she swore to make Karloff pay someday. The day came, she went like a fury against the old man : Imagine a diminutive blode girl going like a cyclone against the weathered old man. It was impossible but Vitalya didn't care if this was possible or not and she won in the end.

                                          • The legend of the Seven Knights of Christendom truly commences by 650 , when shadowy immortal Metopholus, since then cross-identified as Methos, gathered six immortal heroes from all parts of Western Europe as help to hunt the legendary Xanthia of Melitus (aka Rebecca of Mycenae) at this time a thrall of the dreaded Dark Quickening. Xanthia received it from an old and evil immortal in India and for one century, roared and ramapaged across two continents, with Methos hot on her trails, trying to prevent her from causing more deaths. She put thousands of mortals to the sword, killed at least six immortals we know of and damaged her reputation to the extant her former disciples went in hiding, dreading the days she would come after them.
                                            Finally, Xanthia was captured by the Knights of Christendom, who combined their strenghts against the forces of darkness. They fought many evil immortals, but it was the first time they had to face one of the most benevolents of their kind, the legendary Rebecca,keeper of the Stone of Methuselah and former lover of King Agamemnon. It is Methos who guided his allies to a holy spring where Xanthia was forced to confront her inner demons, her good side eventually prevailing. The six holy knights were the one she had to thank and truly, this was their most acomplished feat : bringing Xanthia back from the darkness ot the light.
                                            The seventh Knight, known as Saitn Denis couldn't be present at that time since he had met his Final Deaht by the sword of General Darius in Paris, circa 451. However, for centuries he stodd as one of Europe's greatest forces of good on hte Immortal scene.

                                              Echijole Jimah lived by the sword, a weapon to which she had a mystical connection, feeling her sword was alive and telling her which battle to choose and which to walk away from. As is common in Africa, animism is a prevalent belief in which people do believe inanimate objects have a soul. We often wondered wether Kastagir’s sword mourned its master after the Kurgan killed him. There are tales of ancient weapons which received the souls of their departed masters and when picked by a new master, somehow the Immortal was connected to the Immortals who once possessed those swords. When the Final Gathering finally comes, all of those beautiful swords will be orphaned and will mourn.

                                              Apollo, I did some changes to the Black Friars breakout catastrophe...


                                              From Watcher Bureau, Great Britain

                                              To Ravenwood

                                              Date : 17.09.2013


                                              Breakout at Black Friar ! Under the command of two of the most dangerous inmates kept under Carolyn Mortimer's watch, Jacob Kell and Alfgar of Winchester, extremely dangerous Immortals have escaped from their confinement, The attached files describe who those Immortals are to be approached with extreme caution : Alfgar of Winchester, Jennifer De Chaillot, Jacob Kell , Loretta Lynn, Kieson MacDougall, Karolina Olin. Potentially dangerous : Abel Attwood, Ugolin Ferrant, Charmian, Berg Doepker.

                                              Carolyn Mortimer and Emilie Valentin have been confirmed dead, killed by Kell and Alfgard.

                                              The following notes on Kell's followers have been compiled by field Watchers and by Sylvia Krause, Sean Burns' Watcher :
                                              - Abel Attwood, already mentally unstable, could permamently settle for the personality of the lethal Cain Attwood and thus become a formidfable weapon for Kell.
                                              - Charmian could become Kell's new concubine and be entranced into playing the Game on his behalf.
                                              - Berg Doepker, a fragile being prompt to violent anger could become a dangerous killer in the hands of Kell.
                                              - Ugolin Ferrant, even as foolish as he is, can become a savy player if led by Kell.

                                              The SIS warned Meghan MacKay against Robert Henderson, urging her to stay clear of him : this was a Dark Quickening alert. But Meghan listed to her own heart, not to her head and looked for her past teacher. She didn't need to look for him, he alrerady was hunting her.
                                              When they faced each other, Meghan tried to takl him out of his madness, unfortunately she was adressing the MacTaggert bits that festered in Hendrson's psyche. You do not reason a raving psychopaht like Kevin MacTaggert.
                                              And when Henderson drew his sword, Bang ! He was shot from range by Raymond d'Amboise, the SIS' own master sniper who fled in a hurry before he could be impancted by Henderson’s dissolving energies.

                                              Naturally the deaths of Immortals killed by the Black Friar escapees as well as the deaths of the escapees themselves happen in 2013. As a matter of fact, the Immortal War was the massive eartthquake which triggered the tsunami of the Gathering the Immortals are currently living through.

                                              • I approve of the changes you've made to the Black Friar breakout storyline, Gardner. The basics are the same with Eadwulf still taking out Alfgar from a distance. And Meghan still met her end anyway at the hands of another escapee a few years later.

                                                And the Gathering having been started by the Immortals War is ironic considering that was Memnet-Ra's plan all along. He may have perished but it seems his legacy lives on....

                                                  First death : 1798; Perished in circus fire set upon
                                                  by thieves

                                                  First recorded sighting : 1798. Liverpool, England
                                                  Found and mentored by Jade el-Amin, at this time
                                                  a circus acrobat

                                                  In the Game, the first victim is innocence, the innocence of children killed too soon, reborn to hunt or be hunted. Kenneth, Bossart, the Coyoteros are prime example of it as is Pilar Gonçalves from England who was taught by Jade el-Amin to use her innocent features as an advantage. Jade and Amanda were similar in all things, including the manner they mentored youg immortals. Trickery, deceit, lies, murder.
                                                  Ever since her first death, Pilar has been killing her fair shaire of immortals, a lot of them wanting to use her, but some who weren’t evil. Still she killed, little by little becoming like Kenneth. Her last quarry was Harry Houdini the master escapist who saw clearly through her game and wasn’t above killing an immortal woman hiding behind the face of an innocent child. Needless to say Houdini had to leave Madrid as fast as possible, relocating to Southeast Asia after the local police found the body of Pilar. He couldn't afford to have the body of a child linked to him.

                                                  The lost little lamb named Sherilynn Wolpher came after Richie Ryan asking for his help, the bad man was after her, he killed her Immortal friend and she was in danger of being killed. Richie Ryan maybe an eternal teenaged boy but his is not Immortal to lose his senses over a girl like this ! Especially not after meeting the likes of Felicia Martins who tried to take his head twice ! Sherilynn was in cahoots with projecting empath John Garrick and did his bidding, both Immortals forming a lethal tag-team against those of their kind. They hoped to clear the way in Seattle with Ryan's death. But Richie wised up and took the girl's head before John got his. The empath did his best to drive Ryan crazy with disturbing visions, with nightmarish fantasies projected into his mind but Ryan has seen it all. John Garrick is no more. When he came after Ryan, he expected an easy kill but it was the red-head teen who put the Englishman to his final resting place.

                                                  She was called the bear woman by her men, because of her switching moods and the way she ferociously defended her cubs, a tribe offoster children born in the 14th century who followed her everywhere and whom she trained as spies, saboteurs and assassins infiltrating ennemies lines in warfare. She was even thought to have been a past identity of legendary Kellistra because of her former alias of Kallistrate
                                                  and the fact Kellistra once called herself Ursual Katz, seemingly a dead giveaway. However, Kallisto was found to have been born in the Nicopolis Theme of the 12th century and was identified as a past disciple of Seraphina of Rome. So much for the Kellistra/Kallisto theory.
                                                  Kallisto disappeared during the Byzantine civil war of 1357 with her children and was never heard from again.
                                                  What could turn an heroine and mother into such a ruthless killer ? If she lost her children/tribe to the Game it may have broken her heart to the extant she lost touch with her humanity. Since she re-appeared in 2014 she has been playing theGame withabandon, seemingly not feeling one thing. Even Safiya Khan has a life of her own. Kallisto... just plays the Game. So sad/

Sudden Infant Syndrom is whatkilled little Chan, Dalai's baby. Dalai Bayamba wanted to be a mother so much, a thing that the nature of immortality forbade her, cursing her with a barren womb. So she set on the procedures for adoption and within two years she had her baby. But little Chan died. And Dalai is alone again. With nothing to left she sought to challenge Immortals in the Game, hoping the Final Prize would give her the ability to have children of her own. Foolish woman ! She did a huge mistake when she challenged Amestris of Khotan, a woman protected by her bodyguard and friend Mei-Li Choe. The Sacred Order thrives and nothing can prevent it from achieving its goal of preserving mankind's history and knowledge.

                                                  Once a warrior, mass murderer, serial rapist and killer of women and children, Sau Bay Gyi was so feared and hated on the South Asian continent that his enemies were too numerous to count and there has been a fair number of immortals coming at the doors of his monastery, requesting his head on a silver plate. But Sau Bau Gyi made peace with his ghosts and accepted that the evil immortal he once was had disappeared forever, all this thanks to the teachings of Hsien-Tsiang, one of he most peaceful immortals on Earth, the Darius of Southeast Asia.
                                                  His latest conflict came in 2015 when a Mon immortal challenged him for crimes committed against her people, and this time he was ready to surrender, but his friend Maya Sokhit wouldn’t allow it and she convinced Law-Yone to let bygones be bygones. Such a gesture coming from a woman once murdered by the Khmer Rouges during the Camabodian Genocide speaks volumes of the kindness and generosity coming from this man who doesn’t advocate violence and has stated that no Buddhist can be a nationalist : Buddhism ignore races, states or religions. Or the Game.. Unfortunately Law-Yonne sought justice and killed the Buddhist.

                                                  Louisa Law-Yone never forgave Sau Bau Gyi for the part he mistakenly took in the massacre of the Mon people by the Burmese in the 18th century and for three hundred years hunted him al though Southeast Asia : Thailand, Laos, Vietnam when the war raged on, she allied herself with Immortal Maiden to seek him out in the monasteries of Lhassa, Tibet, to no avail, she could never find him. Sau Bau Gyi is a man who hides behind many walls but those walls allow him to make penances for countless sins he has on his conscience, something his friend Maya Sokhit understands well. However she knew that if Sau Bau Gyi allowed Mon to take her revenge, to kill him in combat, it would solve nothing : it wouldn’t heal Louisa’s wounds and a good man would be removed from a world bereft of Darius. A wild card, Maya Sokhit challenged Louisa after she murdered the defenseless monk and gave her eternal peace.

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

They celebrated the end of St. Paul's cathedral in London in 2011 right in the middle of the Immortals War, a project Archelaus started in 1996 but had to quit a few years later when people noticed he didn't seem to age. Archelaus didn't believe in cosmetics like in the previous century so he got out of London in 2004 and met Thanos in Athens during Summer's Olympics. They met several of their kind during the competitions, including several players of the Game, but a truce had been decided for the duration of the event. Beside, Thanos was in charge of security and the main enforcer of the truce.

Not that he would have enjoyed it much. How could Kallisto murder Adam is beyond us, the former mother hen is gone forever, replaced by just another headhunter. Katherine had only two days to bury her son, she felt devastated and was lucky to have Deoneces and Kyra of Sparta by her side at the funeral. Seraphina was here too, as well as Xanthia from London. After the burial it was time for revenge but Katherine was in no shape to fight and Deoneces knew it. However, Kate took the time to sharpen her sword. Grief would come later. Now was the time of the Gathering and doomed or not, she would avenge her son.
                                                  Her battle against Kallisto of Nicopolis was a furious one and as Deoneces predicted, Kallisto prevailed. Buit not for long.
                                                  Deoneces came after the warrior-woman like a fury and took her out of the Game; he grienved for his woman, for her son but also for hte old friend who had turned into an ennemy whose soul had been lost to the Game long ago. Watchers predicted that what could befall a colossus like Deoneces would be the deaths of Kyra, Seraphina and Katherine, his three sirens. Katherine is no more. Can Seraphina and Kyra survive and make sure Deoneces does ?

                                                  The Marvel Brothers introduced themselves to John Stoppard in 1711 as survivors of the Roanoke colony, once devastated by local Indians,most of the men killed with surviving women and children taken as captives and forced to assimilate in the Chesepian Indian tribe. TheImmortal who mentored them was an Indian healer and wise man named Kol T’ek who lived at this time with the Indians as a local chef named Eyanoco and taught them of their Immortal heritage, to be wary of white men and women armed with swords who would come after their heads.
                                                  For three hundred years the Marvel Brothers lived on the fringes of civilization, building one community after another, fending off attacks from Indians, from outlaws and from the odd Immortal. Always standing together.

                                                  Was it Carter Wallan joke that rubbed Lootje De Groot the wrong way ? Carter's puns are often bad and can be misunderstood. He should have known the reputation of Lootje, a woman with a dark, twisted sense of humor who doesn't like being mocked and felt the youngish Immortal was humoring her. The friendly overture was addressed to the wrong kind of lady and soon the pleasant evening ended with a fatal confrontation between the two Immortals. Once united in a common goal against the pawns of Mement-Ra durign the Immortals War, now led like lemmings by the madness of the Gathering, the fight ended with Lootje victorious. Carter died on his knees, a demonstration that the woman is indeed the deadliest of the species.

                                                  Hazeem Al Bachrim had barely the time to mourn before he tracked Lootje De Groot to her lair where he was met by Lootje's companion, Swenja Baatz. Hazeem intended to avenge his companion but his resolve was lacking. Carter was dead, what was there for him to fight ? Before Swenja's sword, the Ashanti remembered the failure from the tribal ritual which ended his mortality and he finally understood the folly of spending centuries playing the Game endlessly. As his head rolled on the ground, he may have contended himslef with his only prize : to be reunited with Carter forever in the afterlife.

                                                  Messalina of Rome didn't last long against Deoneces of Sparta after she killed the second of his "sirens". Seraphina was expected to be among the contestants of the Final Gathering, however, while a superb fighter, Messalina bested her. She must have trained harder than Seraphina did because she displayed superb fighting kills we didn't expect from her. After all, Messalina was never truly a player of the Game. How she did fight sometimes, if only to savor the odd Quickening or to rod herself from an an enneny but this was a surprise.
                                                  She didn't enjoy her Quickening for long, however. Deoneces challenged her but his grief nearly cost him his head; His concentration looked gone. Kyra was ready to interfere, if only to shut the Roman bitch's viperine mouth but Deoneces denied his fellow Spartan and finally won.

                                                  Deoneces and Kyra buried Seraphina, but they will need each other if theri want to be the survivors of hte Gathering.
