  • Apollo, do you agree with all the characters deletions I did ? Sometimes a little pruning is always good when you want to tend the garden that are the Watcher's Chronicles...
    Still undecided about the Afar women and Himba Clan, any idea for those Immortals ?

    From the Records of the Tribunal :

    Amidst all the recent carnage, sound research was done to finD the guilty part behind the rash of kills of Immortals with unidentified perpetrators for the 2000's and 2010's. Cross-refernecing work is due to our apt Watcher historians and also Immortals itnerviewed by Kyra nad Deonaces of Sparta : Sanjiv Gupta, Bebe Kenyatta, Juanita Vasquez, all close associates of Ravenwood.

    Laurent Kaliganshe has been running from the Game by hiding in some of the most dangerous places in the world as a mines worker. He hasn’t done anything else in sixty years of Immortality. An Immortal prone to hide behind many walls, he is an insecure mouse in fear of the wildcat prawning for prey, so his instincts just tell him to hide and cower in the only familiar environment he feels safe in. May 2013 saw his untimely disappearance after a mineshaft collapse, but we don’t believe him dead, his body wasn’t found among the victims. We expect him to resurface soon.

    Investigations on a series of brutal slayings in the past sixty years in countries of Africa known for theri mining industries point to the culprit being Laurent Kaliganshe, aka the Mole. It seems the “frightened mole” who hides in the hills is also very good at hiding his predatory nature, targeting Immortals living in vicinity of iron, diamond or gold mines all across the African subcontinent, who do not suspect him to be a killer and come after him, expecting an easy kill, only to become the hunted. In this, his methods parallel the M.O of Kenneth the Saxon boy or Aletha the bag lady from the streets of New-York, all three are Immortals who hide in plain sight and strike when lest expected to.

    • I never object to a little pruning! Lol

      As for the Clans; i do think too many clans of Immortals is a little unrealistic. Immortals are a rare breed, would there really be so many of these clans, even in Africa?

      Cheers

      • No, there wouldn't be a lot of those clans, especially considering that up until the 1950's, Africa in its entirety was a demographical pigmie compared to Europe.
        I have 444 Africa-born Immortals on my lists, considerably less than Asian and Middle Eastern Ones (990) and much, much less than Europeans now 1529 all told, so I think it is safe to assume 8 groups/clans/families of Immortals are enough, especially if you consider a total of 34 Immortals make up those clans. There were the Amazons of Dahomey cadre of Immortal women too, now disbanded, the Ifeanaso family. Let's say 51 Immortals with the new extinct Chagga/Maasai family, which take us to 11 percent. Maybe too much.

        I am noit even counting the Brotherhood of Ra, not finding them truly plausible after all. However, do not forget African people live in collective fashion, survival through numbers. Hence maybe, the need for Immortal clans. The Afar and Himbas ... well, they should have gone extinct long ago, however they are too beautiful and fascinating not to exist on my lists (wink!)
        IMO they survived so long by staying isolated from the rest of the world, few Immortals know about their existence.

        The Ifeanaso got killed because they travelled far from home and met a lot of agressive Immortals, same story for the Dahomey amazons, the Fulani Clan, etc..

        Cheers

        encounter with Leopold Kambaré

        With Leopold Kambaré having killed and eaten Ulysses Dyson in 1849 it is our opinion that Malek Ben Mansour did have a short lifespan on the Immortal scene after his encounter with Kambaré in 1871 and didn’t make much of his Immortality. Since he never re-appeared since that time, we may write him off as dead, killed and eaten by the Caledonian cannibal.

        Captain James Cook expedition, claimed to have
        lived for three hundred years

        In 1769 Terence of Coventry met Immortal Rewi Te Huia, a New Zealand native who, though living away from usual commercial routes, was aware of the existence of other Immortals and kept a strong arm, a sharp eye and an even sharper spear. Terence didn’t dare challenge the woman in the Game but challenge her in bed and was quite apt at convincing the little hellion that not all Western Immortals are bad fellows. In 1835 she had embraced pacifism, and may have longed for the return of the charming Englishman who stole her heart from her with her virginity.

        Anakara. Leading Galatians in battle against
        Roman legion led by Marcus Constantine. Raped
        by a centurion, fought and beheaded him later on

        I once looked into the chronicle of Princess Chiomara of Galatia, suspecting she may have been a past identity of Cassandra because this was a formidable woman who didn’t accept to pose as a victim after that centurion raped her in 186 BC. Instead she decapitated him and gave his head to her mortal husband, stating that only her husband would only lay with her. She disappeared in 25 BC, for the second time confronting my old friend Marcus and when I asked Marcus about Chiomara, he wrote back that he killed her in lcombat and that her physical description didn’t match Cassandra’s. So who knows. My nemesis had scores to settle with rapists of all kind, all though fault of mine but I enslaved and raped thousands like her. Should I look behind my back each time I am in a crows for fear a former victim might turn to be Immortal like Cassandra did ?

        Background

        Born : 1070 BC; Mount Ephraim, Ramah in
        Benjamin, Ancient Israel
        First death : Unrecorded
        First teacher : Cassandra

        Known past associates : Cassandra, Xanthia of
        Melitus, Malthace of Palestine, Aretas of Nabatea,
        Salome, Elishevah, Bozidara of Bohemia
        First recorded sighting : 132, Palestine
        During revolt of Simon Bar Kokhbah against
        Rome, encounter with Gideon

        I was in Constantinople when the Black Death struck and if you haven’t lived through it you cannot imagine what it was like or how it felt like. It felt like death on a horse. My brother Kronos (always him!) was in London at that time and I am one hundred percent convinced he brough the rats with him from the Orient, starting the entire catastrophe. Not that poor hygiene in those days didn’t help, in fact it was another one of his tool : ignorance of mortal kind. And rats. He must have appreciated the dispute of Silas and Caspian over red wine or white wine in ‘96. Again talking about my brother when I am supposed to write around Na’amiah of Rabah, a disciple of Cassandra and afflicted with the same passions and demons as the ancient soothsayer.
        Na’amah was one of the Seven Prophetesses of Israel, seven immortal women who were diviners, healers, tribe leaders and among them Xanthia and Cassandra. Cassandra infected her with the bitterness she felt toward Immortal men but Na’amiah fought those demons and tried to curb the violence of the Game, giving her message everywhere she went, suggesting to Immortals they lay down their swords, to live in peace. We have seen how well that worked with the Immortal posing as me. Na’amah wasn’t as delusionnal as “the other Methos” but she wanted to curb our inner violence so we could survive and thrive as a race. Naturally, in the 14th century we weren’t as numerous, and we had more troubles finding each others. Now the world stands on a seaside cliff, ready to jump in the abyss and our race has but two decades to live. We are pitifully few. What would Na’amah do now, I wonder.
        I remember the debate she had with me and how she found me unsettling. Did Cassandra tell her about me ? Did she gave her a good description of my face ? She couldn’t prove anything but she didn’t feel at ease with me around her.

        alliance between Arzawan Kingdom and
        Mycenean Greece against Hittite Empire, lover of
        Aganesthos of Tiryns

        Yzebel of Arzawawas the only known Immortal woman who was capable of finding the innate goodness hidden in Aganesthos of Tyrins the harshest taskmaster of the Bronze Age and to be able to marry him, to love him unconditionally. They stayed one hundred years together before parting ways but the grumpy bear that was Aganesthos became a changed man : he became kinder, calmer.. in some fashion.
        Not that he forsook his innate violence, after all he was one of the most temperamental and uncompromising teachers of his era, one who didn’t accept failures from his disciples. But still. Yzebel had toned that violence down. A true shame she thought she could do the same with another former student of mine, Teushpa of Cimmeria, Conan the Barbarian with a mix of the Kurgan. How can artesans, painters, such as Yzebel can grow attached to brutes such as him is an enigma that needs to be deciphered once and for all. It is not for today or tomorrow. He was vindictive, possessive, jealous and when I visited the happy couple in Anatolia I found her gone, while my disciple pretended she had left for parts unknown. Under my stern gaze – my best Horseman of Death gaze – he admitted the truth : he killed her in a fit of jealousy and when he woke up from drunken stupor, she laid beheaded, her Quickening forever his.

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., though she did eventually get to him in the nick of time.

        In 1990, Rodolfo Bautista travelled all the way from Venezuela to Black Friars in Wales to cure some mild-anxiety symptoms he suffered from, having heard of Sean Burns’ reputation with immortal patients. Burns wasn’t impressed by the Latin immortal he had worse specimens to taker care off in his cells, seeing the lost little boy behind the façade of macho cynism, an immortal who had lost his courage centuries ago and was searching for himself. Batista confessed his teacher, a holy man from Mexico, had been killed by another immortals and he felt that if not even a holy man like Juan de Palos or Darius was safe, then how could he hope to survive more centuries ? Beside, he felt tired and depressed. Sean Burns reminded him of the violent nature of immortals : did Batista play the Game ? Batista answered he hadn’t for a long time. Burns retorted he suffered from the usual burnout and depression afflicting immortals after centuries of warfare, and that he didn’t get back on his feet, he would end up a washed-out coke addict like the unfortunate Brian Cullen. This saned Batista right up : when he came back to Latin America, he started hunting again and felt much better. I don’t suppose Burns had in mind to turn a depressed mobster into a player of the Game. Oups.

        La Festa de la Mama Negra is a Christian celebration in honor of the Virgin Mary but in secret, Aura Angheloz honors each year the memory of her black nanny, Maritsa Bocanegra who raised her from infancy and became her teacher when she reached adulthood and her First Death. Aura has been careful about mixing with other Immortals, never takign a challege and seldom leaving Holy Grounds. This is not a woman fit for the Game and Luis Timpantuna who tried to mentor her found out soon how she was “allergic to swords” and hated the violence of the so-called Game. To play the Game you need passion, a need, a will to survive, you need to have been confronted by the violence of the Immortal world and Aura Angeloz has been living in seclusion for most of her life. Some will say this is not healthy but who are we to judge ? Better live one hundred years in peace and harmony with your environment than one single decade in fear of the sword with your name on it.

        Cristobal Rojas wanted to make a pilgrimage to Palestine, to follow the tracks of Jesus of Nazareth, rumored to be an actual Immortal as were the Three Nephytes and Saitn Longinus. But he ddin’t have the time because of his involvement with the Veneuzuelan revolution against the Spanish Empire; the night before his execution Sean Burns was with him in prayers, having confirmed the presence of Christ among men, 1700 years ago which astonished Fathe Rojas, a man of good faith. There is a difference between believing and knowing, and knowing that Christ existed gave hope for mankind to Cristobal : maybe humanity could change with Jesus among mortalkind. Sean Burns didn’t believe so but he wanted peace for his friend in his last moments on Earth.
        Padre Cristobal was found dead in his cell on the following morning, and since that was his last wish, he body was carried away by Sean to a cemetery on the outskirts of Caracas. We lost the trace of the two men since, but we have an inkling Padre Rojas did travel to Palestine thereafter.

        Hunting gold, capturing and enslaving
        Indians, encounter with Joao Soares de Almeida

        For fifty years it was never possible to separate the chronicle of Modesto Anjos with the chronicle of Eulogio Guajira, two Immortal scum made of the same flesh and blood who set foot Colonial Brazil by the middle of the 18th century and stayed there for five decades, making a name for themselves as slavers and fortune hunters. At some point they met conquistador Joao Soares de Almeida who didn’t bother taking their heads after he defeated them in single combat and instead hired them as bodyguards and slave-hunters.
        Their association lasted two years, Soares disappeared in the jungles of Brazil in 1750, leaving his hirelings to their fate. Watcher Research theorized “Anjos” and Guajira” could have been Lymon Kurlow and Peter Matlin reinventing themselves as two Portuguese and with Immortals such as Tak Ne the Egyptian livign under the name of Juan Sanchez Villalobos Ramirez, well, who’s to say this isn’t true ? Of course it would mean they ran into trouble against Immortal "Andromeda Valdez" who may have killed then, and Kurlow & Matlin died against Duncan MacLeod in 1805 in England.

        Hugh Fitzcairn certainly had a way with ladies when it came to bring them to his bed, less so when it came to teach them the ways of Immortality, the swords, Immortal lore. He simply had no patience with a fierce Catholic Brazilian woman like Pamela and he failed as a tutor. Connor MacLeod he was not. Instead of turning the sexual assault victim into a competent player of the Game, he gave her the fear of God, so to speak and let her on her own once the English deserted colonial Brazil. Having been raped by Englishmen, Pamela wouldn’t have been in the mood of listening to an Englishman, anyway.

        In seventy years of Immortal life, Pamela stayed on her own, moving from one convent to another one, occasionally working in a brothel to make a living and only once taking another Immortal woman under her wing, with whom she hared her fear of the Game, of Immortals. In 1539, both women met Giuseppa Polo, a socialite and player of the Game who nearly killed them before Antonio Pettisani took her head. In those moments of terrors they found Immortal women could be as distrutful as men and found out about the power of the Quickenig : its frightening beauty, its power, how it can change and shape an Immortal.
        A talk with Pettisani convinced them that they would either have to train seriously or they wouldn't outlive the 17th century. The Field Watcher assigned to Pamela and Abril was killed in a mugging during the carnival of Rio in 1641 and so we lost their trace until they were found by Narciso Lopes who murdered them with contempt for the two women.

            After my nemesis, after my blood-brother, a third Immortal has been hunting me ceaselessly : my greatest fan.
            Originally a young boy from the Panchala kingdom of India, Natrajan was dedicated to the cult of Yama the Lord ofDeath and followed the teachings of a "wise old man" named Dhaumaya (guess who ?) who taught him a mix of oriental philosophies so complicated that not even Wikipedia can precisely give a clear definition of it (I challenge you, go look for it!). Poor kid had a terrible shock when he resurrected and thought Yama had left him on Earth to do his work, so he started preaching and preaching and it isn't what I taught him that could make things clear from him. I royally messed up that time again and Natrajan became a vicious player of the Game, offering the paradise of Yama to those of our kind. Obviously the Watchers don't know much about him, but the Indian peninsula is crammed with stories of missing Immortals or killed by an unknown quantity who is in truth Natrajan. I was death and I created a follower of death.
            For once I took responsibility for my actions and tracked down my Frankenstein monster to his lair and defeated his followers in combat before I took his head. The creepy man tried to pretend innocence but I knew who he was behind the façade of innocence.
            Amanda told me about her wayward “son” Kenneth, the story of my apprentice truly mirrors hers.

            Afghanistan. Found by Ibn al-Talia who failed at
            explaining her the rules of Immortality

            Ibn Al Talia of Yarkash is the Immortal who found the origins of Asvattha of Kabul Shahi, an Indian woman born in Afghanistan in the 10th century and was known as a holy woman living on Holy Grounds unaware of her own Immortality. She lived an a neveraging miracle worker, passing herself as a half-Goddess, healing the sick and infirm of mind, helping the poor and suffering and relying on strong men to protect her from agressive people, swords in hands. None of those people could challenge her directly and she could never fathom why they would. Then one day, in 1239, she was found by headhunter Lobon Naro Boshung who sought the enlightenment of the Quickening and felt Asvattha would be a good jumping-on point in his career as a takenr of heads. Lobon was clearly enlightened this day and kept on playing the Game. Legend has that Asvattha lived on in his head and kept him company for seven hundred years, driving him nearly insane with the cackling laughter resonating in his head.

            During the Japanese occupation of the Philippines in World War II, more than half of Butuan, if not all of it, was burned when local guerrilla forces attacked the enemy garrison on 12 March 1943 in the Battle of Butuan. King-ngoh Tay settled a few old scores with Akasaganga, a traitorous witch of a woman who sold herself to the Japanese the same way the accursed Malinche sold herself to the Spanish during the 15th century conquest of Mexico.

            Watcher Research, Southeast Asia

            There is report of the existence of an ancient Immortal from Philippines who lived for five hundred years revered as a Goddess by locals in an isolated island before Anatellon taught her of the Game in the first century of common era. One can barely imagine an Immortal woman living this long without ever losing her head if she didn’t carry a sword but stranger things have happened.
            Macatangay lived for another nine hundred years under Watcher surveillance before vanishing, possibly killed by the Immortal Maiden with whom she got in conflict over some gold the maiden needed to finance an armed insurrection in China. Did Macatangy chose the better part of valor and her homeland instead of facing the Maiden’s sword ? There is no conclusive proof of her death so she may well be still living among us.

            Mina Hernandes was last seen in the barrio of Sao Paulo when her Watcher reported her missing. She had been hunted by Martin Hyde who sought the head of her teacher, Augusto Sampaio, but Mina is no cheese : she learnt to evade the attentions of the occasional hunter and quickly made her way to the nearest bus station while Hyde lost himself in the barrio. She was seen being decapitated in 1959 in Sao Paulo by an unidentified male Immortal who hunted her down and got more luck than Martin Hyde.
            Mina Hernandes also has been cross-identified as elusive freedom fighter Manuela Simoes, a Portuguese Immortal about the same physical age and petite built as Mina though cross-referencing with the chronicle of Augusto Sampaio, Mina's alleged first teacher. As Mina, Manuiela seemingly discraded her sword nad the violence of the Game, preferring a more peazceful lifestyle.

            7 May 1959

            The elusive Maria Rosa who led the Contestado War of 1912-1916 in Brazil and has been missing for the past century has been conclusively identified as Manuela Simoes, a Portugal-faring lady in waiting who fled an abusive home in Braga where she was the clandestine “mistress” of her foster father. Once adopted at the eight of five, she was constantly abused since the age of six to sixteen until she finally stabbed her father to death and ran away from home to live on the streets as a whore before Immortal Vasco Balboa rescued her from a life of misery. Vasco sensed the pre-immortal in her diminutive frame and recuited her in the Portuguese Civil War of 1828 during which she met her First Death. Vasco and Manuela left Portugal for Colonial Brazil where they were last seen before disapearing in 1838 in the jungles, following an exploration party. Vasco re-appeared in Bogota, Colombia in 1864 where he was killed by Immortal Escobar Gallego, his companion wasn’t seen with him and was presumed dead. One never should presume an Immortal dead before seeing his or her body. Manuela was active, alive and well in Brazil where she killed a local sexual predator, Miguel de Boaventura before diseappearign again in 1916.

            During pillage of Thebes by Thracian army,
            murdered the Thracian captain who raped her
            Encounter with Deoneces of Sparta

            According to Plutarch's biography of Alexander the Great, when his forces took Thebes during Alexander's Balkan campaign of 335 BC, Thracian forces pillaged the city, and a captain of the Thracian forces raped an Immortal woman named Timocleia, identified as such by Cleophon of Athens, at this time a commander in the Macedonian cavalry and serving on Alexander's command staff. After raping her, the captain asked if she knew of any hidden money. She told him that she did, and led him into her garden, and told him there was money hidden in her well. When the Thracian captain stooped to look into the well, Timoclea pushed him into the well, and then hurled heavy stones into the well until the captain was dead.
            Timoclea was seized by the Thracian soldiers and brought before Alexander the Great. She comported herself with great dignity and told Alexander that her brother was Theagenes, last commander of the Theban Sacred Band, who died "for the liberty of Greece" at the Battle of Chaeronea in 338 BC, defeated by Alexander's father Philip of Macedon. Alexander was so impressed with Timocleia that he ordered her and her children released and she was not punished for killing the Thracian captain.
            Timoclea became Cleophon'slover from 335 to 326 BC and parted ways with him, nt seen by Watchers before 272 BC in Pyrrhus, Sparta, when she lad Spartan warriors alongside Deoneces (Cleophon's disciple) and Kyra of Sparta. The three Immortals fought side by side and also did a luscious menage à trois in the bed between two battles.

            Nora of Kelmandi was last seen in 1927 with Tatomir Andelac in a heated argument with the disilusionned immortal who didn’t belive in the cause of Albania anymore and wanted to make a profit from the weapons he sold to the Albanian freedom fighters. The two immortals didn’t draw swords but parted on bad terms, Tatomir wasn’t conviced by Nora’spassion nor was he seduced by her good looks and charisma, I guess not even sexual prowesses are enough when you look upon your past idealism with contemps and disgust the way Tatomir did. The poor man disappeared in 1942 in the concentration camp of Branjica, maybe he reunited with Nora in that hellish place.

            In the Battle of Tripoli, Libyan rebels took control the nation's capital effectively overthrowing the government of
            Muammar Gaddafi, thus making of the high points of the Arab Spring. Musa Chekhemani, until then a devout follower
            of Khadafi, boarded a small plane by night, taking him to Cairo, Egypt where he disappeared without trace until 2019
            when he re-appeared in Casablanca, Morocco, where he was confronted by Duncan MacLeod. The fight marked the
            return of the Highlander hero on the Immortal scene.
            During the years of WWII, Tripoli was controlled by Italy until 1943 when the provinces of Tripolitania and Cyrenaica
            were captured by Allied forces. The city fell to the British Army, among them Scotsman Duncan MacLeod who fought
            Musa Chekhchemani to a standstill. 2019 marked the year of their reunion in less than amiable terms and the end of
            Musa's brief Chronicle.

            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 African 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.

            And loosing off his twenty-four arrows like lightning flashes he slew twelve of the Heike soldiers and wounded eleven
            more. One arrow yet remained in his quiver, but flinging away his bow he stripped off his quiver and threw that after it,
            cast off his footwear and springing barefoot on to the beams of the bridge he strode across. [...] With his naginata he
            mows down five of the enemy, but with the sixth the naginata snaps asunder in the midst, and flinging it away, he
            draws his tachi, wielding it in the zig-zag style, the interlacing, cross, reversed dragonfly, waterwheel and eight-sides-
            at-once styles of swordfighting, thus cutting down eight men; but as he brought down the ninth with an exceedingly
            mighty blow on the helmet the blade snapped at the hilt and fell with a splash into the water beneath. Then, seizing
            his tantō, which was the only weapon he had left, he plied it as one in a death fury.
            It is said that Tsutsui counted 63 arrows sticking out of his armor at the end of his stand, which is not unlikely
            considering the structure and material composition of samurai armor.

            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 ladiesas one and the same.

            Laurent Kaliganshe has been running from the Game by hiding in some of the most dangerous places in the world as a
            mines worker. He hasn’t done anything else in sixty years of Immortality. An Immortal prone to hide behind many walls, he is an insecure mouse in fear of the wildcat prawning for prey, so his instincts just tell him to hide and cower in the only
            familiar environment he feels safe in. May 2013 saw his untimely disappearance after a mineshaft collapse, but we don’t
            believe him dead, his body wasn’t found among the victims. We expect him to resurface soon.

            Watcher Bureau, Central Africa

            Investigations on a series of brutal slayings in the past sixty years in countries of Africa known for their mining industries point to the culprit being Laurent Kaliganshe, aka the Mole. It seems the “frightened mole” who hides in the hills is also very good at hiding his predatory nature, targeting Immortals living in vicinity of iron, diamond or gold mines all across the African subcontinent, who do not suspect him to be a killer and come after him, expecting an easy kill, only to become the hunted. In this, his methods parallel the M.O of Kenneth the Saxon boy or Aletha the bag lady from the streets of New-York, all three are Immortals who hide in plain sight and strike when lest expected to.

            • Great new update, my friend.
              I tend to agree that there are too many clans of Immortals. Realistically one or two may be the best way to go, since Immortals are a rare breed anyway, even in Africa.
              Good to see the Missing list being reduced also.

              Cheers

                  • lol I always had way too many characters on my listings... to think I criticized Marvel Comics for their overabundant roster of mutant characters ! I now have a total of 3.000 Immortals on my lists. Good enough for me with a whopping sum of 1.000 characters deleted, including 55 of those merged into other characters.

                    A few adjustements ...

                    Restoring some interesting characters from my previous list. Sorry for playing with your nerves, Apollo... but I do believe some characters deserve another go in the Watcher's Chronicles. I also chose to remove the Hellfire Club's kills from my list because I already have way too many British Immortals and statistically it didn't feel right.

                    • Kell was supposed to have taken over 600 heads. I always think a lot of those must have been inexperienced young Immortals.

                        To be frank, I don't care about Highlander Endgame and the old continuity, Apollo1 and I worked on our own separate universe here and that's well enough for me. Kell was uninteresting, Faith dumb, MacLeod stupid and Kell's posse at the same level as Korda and Reno from Highlander II. I care about the old series that united all of us in the start, however and do enjoy a rerun of the first movie now and then ;-) It was nice talking with you .Cheers !

                    • Cheers! That's a looooong list lol
                      Now all i have to do is match things up with mine...! Lol

                      Because i have a smaller headcount (lol), i'll be keeping the Hellfire Club's kills on my list, purely because i like them having some sort of parity with the SIS, and it makes Richeard of Mercia's victory over his frenemy, Aldrich Monk, look good!....i know, but i'm just shallow like that...sue me! Lol

                      Cheers

                      • Partly the reason I deleted Evangeline Black and Aldrich Monk's kills is they weren't political killings in the same fashion as Richeard of Mercia and the SIS' quarries. Those characters were minor and defenseless Immortals who didn't create any real threat to the Hellfire Club's power. That was the trouble with it. For the Hellfire Club, to be on the same level as the SIS, they would have needed to defeat Immortals who were major players in the affairs of the kingdoms and later empires ruling over European countries, if you know what I mean. Instead of Sorchia and Mary of Lincoln, for instance, you could have had ancestors of sort to the Immortal Court of Beauties or to the Spanish Cabal. Or Immortals from countries that rivalled England at any time of history.
                        Even better, you could rewrite the fates of the Immortals you created and give them different stories (wink!)

                        Glad you liked my long list.

                        Cheers!

                                Fighting German troops during Herero Wars,
                                decimated battalion led by Ernst Daimler

                                Waitavira Tjambiru of the Otjikandero Clan survived for one hundred years - and possibly for hundreds of years - by keeping a mobile target from players of the Game since his dramatic encounter with Ernst Daimler during the Herero/Nama Genocide of 1904. While not players of the Game himself, he proved to be an apt survivor with a long range musquet and a sword when his peace and quiet was brutally interrupted by Daimler's troops, his village slaughtered until only he survived.
                                However, with the societal changes which occurred in the last twenty years, the Himbas to which Waitavira belongs will need to assimilate themselves in the Namibian population and certainly will lose their traditions and customs, while his Immortal counterparts will certainly die against active Immortals during the final days of the Gathering.
                                Waitavira Tjambiru has had experience of the outside world when he worked as a mercenary or during his tenure as a soldier of the People's Liberation Army of Namibia. More than one Immortal tried to take his head and lived to regret it; of the Otjikanderos, he is the one with the more chances to make it to the Gathering, at least on the African continent.

                                Speaking of only one, I deleted the Four Iberian Brothers killed by Khalida Al Nijiran, as well as the Bakongo Clan and the Six Karenas Siblings who bring nothing to the Watcher's chronicles.
                                As for the Asians clans : the Four combined Heroes of Vietnam, Poison Clan, Ten Tigers of Canton, Eight Immortals, Eight Devils, Peopl's Protectorate and the Bakumatsu Brothers, don't forget Asian people live and think in collective fashion, unlike us in the Occident, so it is not such a stretch to think Immortals of East Asia and Southeastern Asia would gather together to survive in the Game...
                                Unfortunately for their collective lots, the Game tends to kill their numbers slowly but surely, explaining why so few groups have survived to present times.

                                Seven Sleepers of Ephesus
                                Rather than have six brothers born in Ephesus mentored by Dyonisus the Holy Man of Paris, I think best to have them as six separate characters with undetermined background. Sometimes, old characters need a little rewrite.

                                Avram and Leah Goldberg’s main subject of dispute is wether Jews should remain dispersed all across the world or gather all in Israel, to the land of their ancestors, and especially Immortal Jews who bear the responsibility of carrying the memories of their kin all through the centuries. Leah is content with the life they have in Brazil on which Avram agrees, but Avram also feels the couple could have aided the foundation of the state of Israel during post-war years. Avram believe the two Immortals need to move out of Nelo Horizonte, Leah is happy there and won’t move a finger to help her brethren who went to the slaughter like sheep to the slaughter. Harsh words, but Avram thinks different. He could have made a difference in Europe, who knows.
                                As caretakers of the bodies of the deceased at Temple Beth Israel, the couple have been making sure Jews get a proper burial in Belo, but there are six millions who never got the proper funeral rites and whose ghosts call to them from the great beyond. At least that’s what Avram keeps telling his wife. And when faced with the horrors of the holocaust, Leah would rather forget and concentrazte on playing the Game, taking heads and moving forward to the day of the Gathering when she and her husband can share the Prize and be the last two standing

                                Once an urban legend of the mortal world, along with Elvis sightings and the crash of Roswell, her death unconfirmed, Amelia Earhart appeared the first time in our chronicles during the Blitz in London, fighting German bombers aboard her airplane, recruited by Richeard of Mercia as freelance agent for the Secret Immortals Society. She worked on their behalf as pilot, messenger, mercenary with an attitude and stocking libraries all around the world, for this is a woman who loves collecting books. Recently she made the acquaintance of Carmen Morales and Gabriela de Savedra who hired her services for Savedra Travels in Argentina; she travels all across the states of Mexico and scored as many victories in the Game as she scored during WWII against Nazi Germany. No one dares mock the Englishwoman as she moves forward to her Prize.

Police arrested Flores-Chicas 16 days after the gruesome murder in a Houston apartment complex. At the plea hearing in April, Alejo Cadena apologized to the victim's family, telling them, "We drank a lot...and I got mad and I took his head."

                                Convinced he was a ‘newborn’ Immortal

                                He may look like a frail old man, but Elliot Harding isn’t a man to be underlooked because this is an Immortal who whent trhough the Blitz, though two wars as a battlefield doctor, helping to wounded soldiers, patching them back to health before they went back to combat. He is a hardedened, seasoned veteran and though he cannot truly stand his own against Immortals carrying sword, he had a whopper of a handgun with him, carrying it at all times, and he has good aim because he used to be an expert marksman in his youth. So far, three young Immortals tried to take him out, including a very alluring woman who wanted a sugar daddy’s Quickening, but this is no fool. When the Gathering comes, he may surprise us all.

                                Background
                                Original cultural affiliation : English
                                Born : 1695, London England
                                First death : 1720, Hung as witch for his theories
                                on the movement of stars
                                First teacher : Tycho Brahe
                                Known past associates : Tycho Brahe
                                First recorded sighting : 1720 Constantinople,
                                Byzantine Empire. Witnessed his teacher’s death
                                by the blade of Ya Nefer Ma’at of Egypt

                                A vodka-guzzling astronomer, yet also a scientific genius that looks to the stars for an answer to why he was spared death and pain like those around him. Small in stature, he uses humor and bluster as survival skills. People saw the young man in the high-top sneakers and the ripped jeans and they underestimated him for centuries, yet he thrived on challenges in the Game, in the bed and among the stars. Long may he live !

                                  • I did a big clean-up work on all the posts I made during the last two years, erasing references to characters I deleted so as to have a more interesting and consistent archive.

                                    Clairvoyant Etain of the Second Look once again foresaw her doom during the maxi-Gathering crisis and vamoosed for parts unknown, losing her Watcher at Belfast airport and re-appeared in London, England where she reunited with the Secret Immortals Services, consisiting of Richeard of Mercia, Eadwulf and Ryamond d’Amboise. After the losses they suffered in 2018, the SIS has been on a recruitment drive and proposed interesting positions to Etain as well as long-missing British African Catherine Beckett and child Immortal spy/assassin Emma Nicholson. The latter two will replace Helen Bondeville and Allegra Chambers in Birmingham and Manchester. We suspect Catherine will infiltrate Birmingham black community and Emma will investigate potential child molesters and/or potential terrorists hiding in England’s schools. Nuha Kalash finally accepted to join the SIS as an operative in Glasgow, joining he local Pakistani community. Life goes on, they say, and Richeard of Mercia will not let the SIS wither and die.

                                      • Glad you liked it, what was old is new again. Can you please post the Immortals killed by Los Coyoteros, I deleted them a bit too quickly. Thanks in advance.

                                        Dissatisfied with the maxi Gathering crisis, too many deaths for 2019, I dispalced some of the mini-Gatherings later in 2020. How does that sound ? The Crisis lasts two solid good years, with the mini-Gatherings of 2020 taking place in isolated areas where they cannot meddle with 2019 Gatherings, continuity-wise.

                                        FROM THE RECORDS OF THE TRIBUNAL
                                        30 June 2019

                                        With help from Duncan and Connor MacLeod's Immortal family and cross-referencing, Ravenwood investigated the activities of the brutal group of assassins collectively known as The Slaughterous Swords who targeted and murdered major players of the Game in the last twenty four months, in effect triggering a "Maxi Gathering" crisis. The catastrophe it seems is the work of a mysterious group of Immortals naming themselves Order of the Sacred Knowledge who wish to control the Immortal community and get rid of the Gathering threat by eliminating the most dangerous players of the Game. While their intentions may have been good, create order out of chaos so they could guide benevolent Immortals to their vision of what the Immortal scene ought to be like, it still triggered a catastrophe.

                                        The Slaughterous Swords may have been gathered by an Immortal assassin named The Apostate (real idenity unknown); possibly a several thousand years old man who blindly obey the Sacred Order, targeting and killing Immortals who threaten the existence of the Order.
                                        Ravenwood (i.e Immortals Deoneces and Kyrra of Sparta, Clemont Haynes, Frances Drummoind, Alex Raven, Sanjiv Gupta, Henry of Kent) has extended interviews with the MacLeod family members (Duncan, Connor, Amanda, Richie Ryan, Rebecca Horne, Joe Dawson himself) and could piece together the sequence of events that led to the present situation : 250 Immortals left living on Earth.

                                        The Sacred Order forgot that Ravenwood is allied with the Watchers and never figured out Duncan MacLeod wasn't dead. MacLeod and Methos did their best ot save the lives of their friends in the clan : Richie, et al but couldn't save the lives of Warren Cochrane who was a loose cannon, crazy as a bedbug, and of Robert of Valicourt who was a living dead since the passing of his wife Gina. Duncan reunited with Connor, Methos and Joe are In hiding, planning their next move, Richie Ryan matured and is waiting orders from Duncan. Xanthia of Melitus was ready to take on the women who murdered the SIS ladies. The SIS and Hellfire Club also were on the Order's kills list.

                                        There remains a handful of truly agressive Immortals who still pose a threat to the survivors, as well as the existence of the Order and its Apostate whose continued existence endanger both Imortal and Watcher Communities. The SIS survivors, Ravenwood and the MacLeod family are now united in the hope of halting the massacre and neutralizing the Order

                                        Ravenwood's investigations of the Slaughterous Swords presents the combo of Immortals as follows, numbered in chronological order :

                                        There are other possible "Swords", including long-missing enemies of Duncan MacLeod, as wella as Messalina and Kallisto of Nicopolis who murdered two of Deoneces' sirens so the Order could break the morale of the seemingly invicible Spartan. The Order has lost a lot of their first batch of Swords to the MacLeod Clan and Ravenwood. Also, Swenja and Lootje were going to killed of by Henry of Kent who intended to take action against the two ladies, Amanda simply took them out before he did.

                                        • Good work! I like what you've done with this Maxi-Gathering.
                                          With the 1990s gatherings, the Immortals War and this latest gathering, more Immortals have died in the last 30 years than in the last couple of centuries!

                                          • I tried to demonstrate how the Immortals killings is like an avalanche. I guessed that worked. The scary part about all those deletions is the not remembering who were 80% of the characters I deleted. Did you find the Coyoteros kills ? I must have deleted them for good reasons too.. but since the Coyoteros are still on my lists it could be interesting to give them a bit of polish. Find the reworked backgrounds of this group of killers.

                                            Cheers!

                                            • Yeah, it's certainly been an avalanche! Lol

                                              Re: the Coyoteros kills; it's going to take a while to sort through my old files, as you had changed the kills a few years back and i followed suit. I may have the original stats but it'll take a while to sort out. Give me some time and i'll see what i can do.

                                              Cheers

                                              • From the Tribunal:
                                                18 December 2019

                                                Once reported killed by Karolina Olin by a Watcher who wrote a botched report, Viola Blanco re-appeared alive and well in the company of Frances Drummond, the once Crimson Butterfly, during a night of nightclubbing ,wine and frenzied debauchery. The two women having their fun in the midst of the ongoing Immortal Ragnarok, so to speak. Viola is talking about travelling to Damascus, Syria, to find Hugo Stürmufuller (aka Hugo Krantz), the airplane commander from Legion Condor who destroyed her hometown durign WWII. Didn't she kill him in the 1960's already ?

                                                Shakir Ibn Mutariff is in Algiers, a businessman and former disciple of both Xavier St.Cloud and Hamza el-Kahir, one a lethal enemy of Duncan MacLeod, the other a dear friend of the Highlander. The confrontation between the Moor and the Highlander ought to prove interesting. Mossane and the Water-Snakes group survived their confrontation against Safiyah Khan, Mossane has a hold on the Muslim woman that prevented her from hunting her and her pack of students. What secret can be between the two women no Watcher can tell.

                                                Reggie Weller, Doctor Eliott Harding in America; the Cirque du Freak thought killed off came back to the Barnum and Bailey Circus; Jane Chirwa is back as a student at Columbus University in Ohio.
                                                The Ragnarok Gang -Roclaw Gajewski, Tanja Hammerstein and Ludwig Malek - escaped the swords of the Secret Daggerrs during the Immortals War and ar back in business smuggling weapons in Seattle, WA, a city closely guarded by Richie Ryan. Juan MacKenna is back in Mexico one century after the Revolution took place, in likelihood to settle old scores with Juanita Vasquez who killed his partner, Doran 'Dynamite' O'Gara in 1910. Nina Barradez came back to Mexico, living in Chiuhahua, running the Angels shelter, providing to underage prostitutes, helping them
                                                out of their lifestyle, however hopeless her job my be.

                                                Sarah Kinnock in Scotland likely to clash swords with Nuha Kalash someday. Tippu Tip is in Birmingham with his negro bodyguard, Sylvester Kunda while the Trung Sisters are in Manchester. Baron Von Munchausen, Von Schau of Livonia (thought long dead), in Warsaw and Berlin. Dania of Amman is in Jordan alive and well. . Doc Widders was reported active in Buenos Aires having a close encounter with Carmen Morales and her companion Gabriela, it didn't end with a fight fortunately for him. The Rochia Sisters death report was greatly exaggerated, they turned out alive and well, in Macau China.

                                                Seven years after destrying his old ennemies, the Immortals of Mother Russia, Grigori Rasputin put himself in the service of an astonished Vladirmir Rasputin who discovered ht existence of Immortals. The Rus Super Soldiers are now attached to Putin's personal orders and are comprised of Simon Vasilov, Toutkar of the Tatars, Maria Rostova and Nicholas Kuchinka, the latter four thought killed during the Immortals War.

                                                It is as if the Gathering was bringing back not only M.IA Immortals but also as if the dead were somehow returning. A bad moon is rising.

                                                Victor : Scathag of Skye

                                                The SIS has confirmed to Ravenwood that Karolina Olin took no part in the deaths of their late colleagues, and that the two responsibles for their exercutions were Aoife and Scathag of Skye. There was a battle of Karolina agaisnt Rhiannon but it proved unconclusive and brought the Welsh woman to her limits, making her an easy kill for the Immortal from Skye.


                                                From Watcher Bureau, Mexico
                                                Some research has been done to find the guilty parts behind the deaths of a number of Immortals living in Mexico City, in the 19th century and during the 1990's. It turns out the Coyoteros gang once again proved what a deadly team they could be against their adult counterparts. The deaths of Immortals Abel Dawkins and Urania Blackwell was also attributed to Jasper Abraham and Quani Colotl respectively.

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

                                                Carter Hawk had only one passion, only one love: unearthing ancient treasures, discovering forgotten civilizations and old
                                                languages. While this would rank him as a favorite Immortal among historians and researchers in Watcher circles, Carter lived also
                                                for the Game, for the thrill of battle and for the Prize. But this was second only to his love of archaeology. He was first spotted on
                                                Watcher records in the Mampang Valley of China, when he met and challenged Immortal Zai Jie over the digging of an ancient
                                                temple. The fight was interrupted by an abrupt landslide, Carter just left the area.
                                                He was seen combing the four corners of the world, digging forgotten treasures and occasionally playing the Game. In 1861, he
                                                married a pre-Immortal girl and trained her in fencing and archaeology, but never managed to make her a happy woman. Urania
                                                soon left him alone, and Carter resumed his life.
                                                In 1990, he travelled to Mexico in the hope of unearthing Mesoamerican treasures and unexpectedly rushed into the Coyoteros gang
                                                who made short work of the agressive Immortal and buried him in an unmarked plot, along with his dreams.

                                                Soft-spoken, shy student of Edwina who never really recovered from being raped and murdered by English soldiers during the War of Henry VIII. Became a doctor to help the poor and suffering and has been avoiding the company of Immortals as much as possible with the exception of Edwina’s other students and her friend Grace Chandel. The murders of Bethany Clarke and later Edwina have fuelled in her a wish for revenge; while not a vigilante, she embarks on a quest for the Hauser brothers and for Capito whenever she hears news of them.

                                                thought the best defence was attack. He expected to take on one Immortal after another, figuring he had all the time in the world to win the fabled Prize; he would go from one city to another, posing as a college student, living large and enjoying his immortal
                                                youth. But he stayed the computer geek he used to be, and no one would talk to him because of his insufferable arrogance and
                                                chauvinistic attitude to foreign students. When at last he met his first Immortal, sweet-natured Soraya de Mendoza, he thought
                                                himself lucky and lost his head before he even got to lose his virginity.

                                                In the 108th year of his immortal life, Anthony Bainard was working on a sculpture of the Virgin Mother and her child to celebrate
                                                the nativity by the end of December. The Virgin Mother was nearly done, the baby Jesus looked beautiful, as if coming alive in the hands and tools of Anthony. The young Immortal was respected by his peers and avoided the company of other Immortals as much as possible, having been forewarned by his master, John Garrick, that a Scot would come after him and end his life. So, Anthony stayed in England and never set foot in Scotland.
                                                Alas, William Campbell of Strathclyde was a man who liked to hunt outside of Scotland and had already killed an English Immortal in 1376. When William heard strange stories of a stonecutter who seemingly kept his youthful appearance when others grew old and died past the age of thirty, he started hunting again. Forewarned, Anthony ran away and has been missing ever since his re-appearance in Mexico where his lifework was interrupted by the Coyoteros gang.

                                                Even before his First Death, Joshua Boone was mentally ill, hiding his compulsive, depressed behavior behind acts of vandalism andt hievery that led him to the gallows when he was framed for the massacre of an entire family, found on the crime scene in a pool of blood. He was hung without a trial and buried in an unmarked grave from which he was dug up by Anthony Bainard, fellow Englishman..
                                                Walter taught Joshua what he could and left him on his own after a few years spent together. Left alone, Joshua went back to his
                                                depressed state until his encounter with stonemason John Garrick who told him of a legendary city located somewhere in England where Immortals dwelt: the disenfranchised, the infirm, the ugly, the murderers, all their sins redeemed. While some old chronicles write about the cult of the ancient god Baphomet, held by Immortals, there is no conclusive proof of the existence of “Midian”, the place Garrick referred to and whose legend made its way into the feverish imagination of horror writer Clive Barker.

                                                Tired of running, Tikai Tapai has started hunting, cleaning up Australian shores from roving headhunters – whites coming after Aborigines – and then kangaroo-killers, and moonshiners in the 1960’s. Currently she is adressign the pandemic problem of child abuse in Aborigene communities, informing girls and women about std’s and sex and also punishing the men who rape and torment their cousins, nieces and sisters, going from one place to another, a rabid vigilante with hatred for all men. Aren’t all men predators, she reasons and being worse than crocs who at least need to feed ! This is one angry woman.

Those three are thus on the Inactive roster of Immortals. Also, I do not imagine Kun Hou as an active headhunter and member of the Slaughterous Swords. Meaning Beatriz Kimpa Vita and Estelle Malembo are also surviving the Gathering Crisis.

                                                In 2010, Choi Hyejin and Seo Dongyun re-appeared in Seoul and came after calligrapher Sin Sookhee, posing as lost little lambs in need of shelter and protection. Sin may have been a gifted painter but she could never see through the façade of innocence deployed by Immortal children, seeing in the two “girls” the children she could never have. It is her love or children, her need for motherhood that lost her, stricken from behing by two cold-hearted killers who stole whatever valuable she had before burning her house down, her collection of paintings forever lost to the world. This months of June 2015 they came after the wrong kind of Immortals I nthe person of super-spy Violet Song and master swordwoman Woo Bok-soon who saw through the façade of innocence of the two “girls” and dispatched tHem Immortal-style. Choi and Seo shuffled their immortal coils raging and screaming, not believing their game was up, that they wouldn’t reap their prize at the time of the Final Gathering. Woo bok-soon was a war nurse and also a psychologist in previous lives and understood well the need for children to survive in the Game, to use trickery and deceit; Violet Song survivied by the same means, hiding herself as a prostitute, concubine, living on the fringes of society. They survivid as women forced to live in a word that shows little mercy to women. Choi and Seo could have been their soul sisters in better circumstances but those were two little demons who needed to be taken down.
