  • Appius Lepidus Baro, part II

    Elisheva of Samaria
    Known aliases : None
    Notable characteristics : Judean Nationalist, deep
    hatred of Rome
    Weapon : Custom broadsword

    Status
    Most recent base of operations : Roman Judea
    Occupation : Leading Palestinian Jews in revolt
    against Rome
    Prior occupations :
    Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
    Date : 73 First Jewish-Roman War (66-73)
    Place : Roman Judea
    Victor : Appius Lepidus Baro, treated her with
    disdain, found how warrior-like women can be
    Watcher : Research, Baro Chronicles

    Background
    Original cultural affiliation : Hebrew
    Born : 776 BC Samaria, Kingdom of Israel
    First death : 756 BC Undetermined
    First teacher : Na’Amah of Ramah
    Known associates : Na’Amah of Ramah
    Known past associates : The Seven Prophetesses
    of Ancient Israel
    Known ennemies : Methos, Appius Lepidus Baro
    First recorded sighting : 732 BC Kingdom of Israel
    Sack of Damascus and Israel by the Assyrians,
    Inconclusive fight against Methos on the side of
    the Assyrians, rumored to be an invicible demon

    Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. And Elisheva was one hell of a woman, a savy little fighter and player of the Game who was dedicated to the protection of her land. Hated the Romans with as much passion as Avram Mordecai.Poor Avram, he took out Marcus Constantine out of hate and look at him now, pushing up daisies. But I digress. I had a lot of respect for Elisheva, she reminded me of Abellona when my brother found her and mentored her and in her case it was the Na'amah the Prophetess who mentored her in 756 BC and did she turn her mind around ! She prophetized to her the misfortunes that would happen to Israel in the coming centuries and she stood ready against Rome in 53 BC, two hundred years before the revolt of Bar Kobbah. Appius had never met an Immortal woman and had
    but contempt for the women of his kind, seeing them as holy women or whores, unable to carry children, thus useless wastes of flesh. Did he have a surprise with Elisheva ! She fought him like a fury after decimating scores of llegionnaires in guerilla tactics until finally Rome sent Appius the champion after her. The mighty champion didn't stand a chance against a woman I personally trained but I didn't confess THIS to poor Appius and his mournful sip of wine. He told me he was lucky against her, but he may have cheated. Well, he still have to live with this sin as I do when I think of Cassandra. And all the others.

    Maeonius of Assyria
    Known aliases : Aeolius of Adiabene
    Notable characteristics : Assyrian patriot
    Weapon : Assyrian battle sword
    Recorded kills : None known

    Status
    Most recent base of operations : Assyrian
    Kingdom of Adiabene, Province of Assyria,
    Roman Empire
    Occupation : Resisting Roman occupation as
    Soldier of Assyrian prince Antruces
    Prior occupations : Assyrian warrior
    Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
    Date : 118
    Place : Kingdom of Adiabene
    Victor : Appius Lepidus Baro, unsuccesfully trying
    to quell Assyrian rebellion
    Watcher : Research, Baro Chronicles

    Background
    Original cultural affiliation : Assyrian
    Born : 150 BC; Beth Nuadra, Parthian Assyria
    First death : 120 BC, Murdered by jealous rival
    over the affections of a woman he courted
    First teacher : Ahasuerus the Parthian
    Known past associates : Ahasuerus
    Known ennemies : Appius Lepidus Baro
    First recorded sighting : 118. Kingdom of
    Adiabene. Contemptuously killed by Baro who
    later realised he needlessly killed Maeonius

    The resistance of the Kingdom of Adiabene against Rome lasted only two years before Rome eventually gave
    possession of Assyria and Mesopotamia. Today Appius acknowledges it was a twaste of time and efforts for him and his legion to come after the Assyrians and his battle against Meonius seems as futile s his other earlier kills. Maeonius would have become an ally of Rome with time and maybe a trusted ally of Appius. I sincerely consoled the Roman, not reminded him that Christian Assyrians sided with Christian Rome, and in likelihood Maeonius would have been killed by Appius with as much scorn by the fall of Rome. Appius wasn't too tolerant with Christians either. He so looks like an unpleasant bastard as I write all this.

    Hyllos of Argos
    Known aliases : Saverios of Hyrgos
    Notable characteristics : Gay Immortal
    Weapon : Greek hoplite sword
    Recorded kills : None known, occasional player of
    the Game

    Status
    Most recent base of operations : Athens, Greece
    Occupation : Competitive wrestler
    Prior occupations : Athletic competitor, specialised
    in boxing, wrestling
    Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
    Date : 296 Olympic Games
    Place : Athens
    Victor : Appius Lepidus Baro, despised Hyllos
    because of his homosexuality, got angry when he
    made a pass at him
    Watcher : Research, Baro Chronicles

    Background
    Original cultural affiliation : Greek
    Born : 10 BC, Argos, Greece
    First death : 18 BC, Chokehold while practicing
    pankration (boxing/wrestling), during Olympic
    Games
    First teacher : Kyra of Sparta
    Known associates : Kyra and Deoneces of Sparta
    First recorded sighting : 86 AD. Athens, Greece
    In bed with a male lover of Kyra, Kyra happily
    reunited with her former student and made a
    menage a trois durign 86’s Olympic Games

    Kyra never truly forgave Appius Lepidus the murder of Hyllos of Argos, oen of her favorite disciples, fellow sportsmen and lovers. Appius is now cured from his homophobia but all the regrets in the world won't change the fact that a good man was killed in the Game before he could become one of its champions. Hyllos had a competitive mind and played when challenged, he accepted all kinds of challenges : on the battlefield, in the Olympic Games, had turned out to be a master of the bed and of the blade but when he tried to seduce Appius, deeep-tonguing him after one night of drunken debauchery, Appius' blood boiled and that was the end of Hyllos.

    Lifgarda of Hanover
    Known aliases : None
    Notable characteristics : Emittered, disilluisioned
    warrior-woman, played the Game in the hope of
    feeling like a ‘Valkyrie’ again
    Weapon : Germanic medieval broadsword

    Status
    Most recent base of operations : Hanover,
    Germany
    Occupation : Captain of city’s guard
    Prior occupations : Warrior woman, also member
    of the Valkyries Immortal women group
    Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
    Date : 1252
    Place : Hanover
    Victor : Appius Lepidus Baro
    Watcher : Research, Baro Chronicles

    Background
    Original cultural affiliation : Germanic
    Born : 650; Valley of the Danube, Germany
    First death : 670, Raped and killed by Austrasian
    marauders
    First teacher : Gostanza
    Known past associates : Gabriel of Zeeland,
    founder of the Knights of the Netherlands;
    The Valkyries (Heilewif of Magdeburg, Sigihild of
    Teutoburg, Desdemona, Gostanza, Gundehar,
    Draga of Regensburg)
    First recorded sighting : 1175. Netherlands
    Unconclusive fight against Edwina of Mercia,
    witnessed by her disciple Gabriel of Zeeland

    With Lifgarda of Hanover, Appius learned his lesson and was careful to be prepared when he faced the ancient Valkyrie woman. Ah the Valkyries ! They spread their own legend across the Danube right to the Nordic wastelands of Scadninavia, fighting entire armies, playign the Game, dincing, singing and fornicatign togetherr. What prud and beautiful warrior women they were ! Together, they were a force to be reckoned with, then they went their separate ways and the Game killed them all, one by one. Only Sigihild remains, the Watchers last saw her in Spain by the time of the Civil War, helping her Czech husband and Immortal lead resistance against the Nazis. A tale that inspired the movie Casablanca. She and her husband are still alive, they send postcards from time to time.
    In 1252 Appius was in Hanover, a mercenary sword in barbaric and brutal times; Lifgarda had retired from the Game but sometimes she didn't mind a good workout and male challengers didn't scare her. Appius still had a chip on his shoulders in those days and he had scores to settle with Immortal women, especially when they cheat and pretend to be men. Well, he was lucky this was a withered Immortal because the fire was gone along time ago, only the presence of her sisters gave her the incentive to fight like a fury. A true shame.

    • Appius Lepidus Baro, part III


      Zlatka Golakova
      Known aliases : « The Volga Viper »
      Notable characteristics : Sociopathic
      Weapon : English mediavel broadsword

      Status
      Most recent base of operations : Kent, England
      Occupation : Assassin, in service to a local lord
      Prior occupations : Murder-for-hire, trained in
      political assassination by Andre Korda, starting
      with vassals of the Golden Horde (1224-1236)
      Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
      Date : 1360
      Place : County of Kent
      Victor : Appius Lepidus Baro
      Watcher : Research, Baro Chronicles

      Background
      Original cultural affiliation : Bulgarian
      Born : 1203, Volga Bulgaria
      First death : 1223; Raped and murdered by the
      Kurgan, part of invasive army of Genghis Khan
      First teacher : Andre Korda
      Known past associates : Andre Korda
      Known ennemies : the Kurgan
      First recorded sighting : 1224. Volga Bulgaria
      Found by Korda, hiding in a convent, violated and
      dishonored, unaware she had been killed

      I honestly don't know how Zlatka Golakova survived being raped by the Kurgan, few women did, with the expetion of Connor MacLeod's mortal wife and one of my brother Kronos' disciples. Under the guidance of Cleophon of Athens she would have become the Balkans' counterpart to the Crimson Butterfly; under the guidance of Andre Korda she became a skilled assassin and a hater or men, feeling forgotten by God and with the Devil in her heart. Reading her chronicle, I realise how Cassandra must have felt when I... conquered her body (violated her body, old and ancient bastard!) and on top of that selling her to Kronos. 3,000 years of nurtured anger and hatred. She could never let it go.
      Ah Cassandra. I hate having had to disclose the story we had in common to Kyra and Deoneces, the look in their eyes was more painful than Kronos' blade through my heart when we reunited in 96. Zlatka is truly a tragic character who had to adapt herself to the violent past of Europe in the Middle Ages, and hell knows how Korda was good at manipulating Immortal women, even the older ones (see Amanda's chronicle, 1905). In 1223 she was hiding in a convent, in 1360 the Volga Viper had specialized in seducing dules, princes,swordsmasters, bankers, worming her way in theri beds before killing them on behalf of Korda, all that time posing as his daughter, beign given in marriage to men Korda wanted to.. see disposed of. With time she disposed herself of Korda, I think she poisoned him, but she didn't take his head. She vanished into the night and re-appeared in 1360 near Scotney Castle in the lovely county of Kent. In 1360 Appius Lepidus Baro fell in
      love with a mortal woman and after centuries of being a murdering bastard and an all-around unpleasant bastard, experienced an epiphany of sort, realising hs life is fragile and that not all Immortals are fit to be put to his mighty sword.
      Kage, anyone ? Well, even I can fall in love with a mortal girl, my latest was... ah beautiful Alexa. Even my dark side she accepted. Well, Esmeralda was Appius' Alexa and the beautiful redhead stole Appius' heart in a manner to make Amanda herself pale with envy. Appius the warrior, Appius the conqueror, the merciless became a man in love, forsaking the darkness in his own heart. And when the Voilga Viper came after the happy couple, Appius was for once relucant to murder a woman, but he had no choice.
      Laugh if you like, Kronos my brother, I may have feared you, I may have loved you, but I am the one who changed and let love touch my heart, not you and your taste for rampant destruction. Appius changed too andnot even the Volga Viper's Quickening could taint his soul.

      Maginulf of Pavia
      Known aliases : Arnwulf the Barbarian
      Notable characteristics : Savage warrior,
      gargantuan physique
      Weapon : Lombard sword, battle axe
      Recorded kills : None, not a player of the Game

      Status
      Most recent base of operations : Pavia, Lombardy
      Occupation : Soldier, Pavia city’s guard,
      occasional headhunter specilaizing in long-lived Immortals
      Prior occupations : Mercenary sword, working in
      campaigns led by Darius and Grayson
      Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
      Date : 1434
      Place : Pavia
      Victor : Appius Lepidus Baro
      Watcher : Research, Baro Chronicles

      Background
      Original cultural affiliation : Germanic
      Born : 746; Western Roman Empire
      First death : 774, Killed during Charlemagn’s
      campaign agaisnt Northern Lombardy
      First teacher : Eberwolf, aka Wolfgang Ebersol
      Known associates : Andre Korda, Kage, Grimoald
      Known past associates : Eberwolf, Grayson
      First recorded sighting : 774. Ravenna, Kingdom
      of Italy. Trained by Eberwolf

      Maginulf of Pavia was a bastard through and through who spent seven hundred years being a plunderer, a killer, a rapist and a bloody savage. Still he had a good side of him when reading though his chronicle, a soft side : he like animals, was fond of horses, he trained dogs for attack and for the hunting; he played the flute with a tearful pathos and his deep, booming voice still resonates through the mind of Appius who took one mighty Quickening in 1434 when we were drinking wine together. Maginulf was hunting ancient players of the Game and he met Appius and I. I was the one he challenged by Appius got dibs on him. And besides, the gargantuan immortal reminded me of Silas.
      He still
      does.

      Georgi Borzakov
      Known aliases : Fedor Golubov, Mitislav Borodin
      Notable characteristics : Deep hatred of foreigners
      invading his homeland, natural distrust of foreign Immortals
      Weapon : Russian klindjal

      Status
      Most recent base of operations : Moscow,
      Tsardom of Russia
      Occupation : Soldier, Russian Armed Forces
      Prior occupations : Farmer, soldier, mercenary
      Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
      Date : 13 October 1688
      Place : Moscow
      Victor : Appius Lepidus Baro
      Watcher : Research, Baro Chronicles

      Background
      Original cultural affiliation : Russian
      Born : 1048, Sdouthern Rus
      First death : 1078, Killed by Turkic nomads raiding
      his farm, raping his wife and daughters
      First teacher : Dobrogost of Silesia
      Known past associates : Dobrogost
      First recorded sighting : 1080. Zalesye settlement,
      Northern Russia. Found and mentored by Dobrogost

      The chronicle of Appius, after his epiphany, speaks of an Immortal who plays the Game when challenged or to defend his loved ones or the land he pledged his sword to. The memory of Esmeralda never leaves him and why the ancietn Roman remains a fearsome player of the Game, this is a more tolerant man, a calmer Immortal - in the way a violent Immortal like him can be ! At least, that's one less Caspian or Silas to worry about. Ah darn, why are my chronicles pregnant with the memories of my brothers ? Ah Silas. Why didn't you change, you could still be playing the flute now.
      And Caspian... you reap what you sow. Why did you pick on your brother ?
      Appius Lepidus Baro seldom allowed himself the companionship of other Immortals, he didn't create a brotherhood and only spoke to us - Deoneces, Kyra and myself - the rare time we gathered in Pavia. He recanted how he was in Moscow in 1688 and had to face an Immortal even more intolerant of foregners as he was in his young years

      Sabite Bayar
      Known aliases : None
      Notable characteristics : Willful, fiery temper
      Weapon : Ottoman cavalry saber
      Recorded kills : None known

      Status
      Most recent base of operations : No fixed location
      Occupation : Messenger/archer, Ottoman Empire
      Prior occupations : Cavalry officer, Ottoman army
      Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
      Date : 1730 Revolt of Patrona Halil ending the
      Tulip Period of Ottoman Empire
      Place : Constantinople
      Victor : Appius Lepidus Baro
      Watcher : Research, Baro Chronicles

      Background
      Original cultural affiliation : Turkish Ottoman
      Born : 1284; Ottoman Empire
      First death : 1302; Killed at Battle of Bapheus, war
      of Ottomans against Byzantines, followed her
      lover in battle under male garbs
      First teacher : Sarah of Antioch
      Known past associates : Sarah of Antioch
      Known ennemies : Appius Lepidus Baro
      First recorded sighting : 1302. Antioch, Turkey
      Mourning her companion, wasn’t aware she had
      been actually killed in battle

      "I killed ten thousand and I was good at it. And it wasn't for vengeance, it wasn't for greed; it was because I liked it. I was Death. Death on a horse." When I disclosed my past as Horseman to Appius, he understood.
      Because he had bedded and loved an Ottoman archer woman, Sabite Bayar, who had been through four hundred years of conquests and warfare and had seen too much, killed too many, had allowed too many rapes of innocent women, too many lootings and burnings of consecrated Christian sites. Way too many. She laid down her sword and still the Ottoman, became a messenger in search of more pacifical occupation. Then 1730 she briefly reunited with Appius during the Revolt of Patrona Halil which ended a period of peace of Ottoman history; she had seen enough of Immortality and wanted to end it. Bearing a cloak and a hood, she challenged Appius and Appius killed her, unaware he was killing Sabite Bayar. The Quickening disclosed to him the horrors she had witnessed and Appius was the one to bury her in private, in a cosnecrated palce.

      Yang Jing-xiang
      Known aliases : The Immortal Heshen (Ho-Shen)
      Notable characteristics : Corrupt official, cunning
      man with a maipulative personality
      Weapon : Never seen carrying any
      Recorded kills : None personally, had his Immortal
      ennemies quietly beheaded by mortal bodyguards

      Status
      Most recent base of operations : Beijing, China
      Occupation : Courtier, major influence on Emperor
      Quianlang, rumored to be a neveraging Immortal
      Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
      Date : 1796 Putting down Bailian Jiao rebellion
      Place : Western China
      Victor : Appius Lepidus Baro
      Watcher : Research, Baro Chronicles

      Background
      Original cultural affiliation : Chinese
      Born : 356; Jiankang, Eastern Jin Empire
      First death : 383; War of Former Qin Empire
      agaisnt Western Jin, betrayed the Jin to the Qin
      First teacher : General Long Chao
      Known past associates : Kane, Senghi & Khabul
      Khan, allowed their accession to power as rulers
      of the Shansi Province
      Known ennemies : Deoneces of Sparta, Appius
      Lepidus Baro, Jin-Ke, May-Ling Shen
      First recorded sighting : 1754. Beijing, China
      Introduced Kane and the Khan brothers to
      Emperor Quianlong as demi-gods from Heaven

      I haven't felt guilt since the 11th century. Appius experienced guilt for the last time in 1796 when he took out the Immortal responsible for the career as "Gods" of Kane, Senghi Khan and Khabul Khan in China in 1754 as a favor to Deoneces of Sparta who wanted to put him in front of his responsabilities as an Immortal to mortalkind.
      (See Chronicle of Deoneces of Saprta, 1754, good for a laugh and worth any Shaw Brothers action movie. Bring the popcorn). Appius Lepidus hunted down the man who was behind the Bailian Jao rebellion in China and faczed a kingmaker who didn't bother with hiding his immortal nature to Emperor Quianlang. The fight was brief, more an execution than a fight, but after that Appius expected his "debt" to be paid. The uncompromising morals of good old Deoneces.

      • Loved these chronicles, my friend! Just like old times! Lol
        Inspired choice to have Methos be the author of Baro's chronicle and you've captured the essence of the Roman Immortal I had in mind when I decided to make him more three-dimensional. BTW loved Methos' sly digs at Deoneces and his reminisces of his Horseman years. Fantastic job.

        I'm currently working on those 4th century names you wanted and i'll post them ASAP.

        Cheers

          Removing the reference to MacLeod since Methos didn't tell him about his past in our continuity.

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

                      After nine centuries of warfare, Huang Guigu decided to retire from wars and from the Game, to become a woman of peace following the teachings of Darius. Huang became the best advocate of peace in Central Asia until Genghis khan rose to power and started establishing his empire across the steppes of Central Asia.
                      Huang Guigu saw a man of vision, a ruler who would engulf the world in his dreams of domination and admired the man that, one hundred years ago, she would have gladly followed. But this was the past, and Huang had discarded her sword for good. When Kane, follower of Khan, admirer of the Kurgan and a definite upstart came after her head, Huang drew her sword, ready to meet the challenger. After all, even advocates of peace needs warlike weapons to survive in the Game; Unfortunately, not having trained in a century had rusted her out. The child-faced immortal who led armies in hundreds of campaign from Eastern China to the mountains of Tibet lost the last battle of her life against an immortal who proved to be as cruel and as merciless as himself had she was when conquering Chinese peasants and Tibethan monks.

                            With so many Arab billionaires keeping harems of hundred young women on their boats, an Arab immortal was bound to have the same idea. Musa bin Fauzi did, a lazy and self-conceited man of leisure, former businessman and entrepreneur who used to be a competent blade in present-day Saudi Arabia until the four first centuries of his life turned him into a complacent man relying on his bodyguard to protect him against other immortals. .
                            Khalida Al Najiran infiltrated Bin Fauzi’s harem and took out the two immortals reigning over the harem : Cheik Bin Fauzi and his bodyguard, Ikmat Ibn Abid. The arrogant cheik thought he had an inexperienced girl in his bed but this is an age-old woman with a quick swordarm. The ensung Quickening lit up Musa’s chamber, her second Quickening this month after the death of Ibn Abid.

                            To strike at Bin Fauzi, her intended target, Khalida needed to take out Ikmat ibn Abid, a talented swordman and player of the Game. Ibn Abid has one weakness, his taste for very young boys, between eight and twelve and he knew the right palces in Arabia where to find brothels catering for men with his tastes. So did Khalida who waited for him, sword in hand after one of his nights of debauchery during which he left his sword in his car for a few hours. She waited for him and rid the Arabian scene from one of its more unsavory elements.

                                Student of Hazeem Al Bachrim and Carter Wellan

                                Born a Bedu, Khalidah was a desert nomad when she knew her first death during the onslaught of a tribal war; she died by accident since the ancient Bedu followed a code of extreme chivalry and wouldn't voluntarily kill young children. Long-lived players of the Game Hazeem Al Bachrim and Carter Wellan had been living among her clan, when her accidental death occured. They had been caught in a sand storm and rescued by Khaidah's father. The leader of Khalidah's tribe welcomed them among his people and in return, Hazeem and Carter became the protectors of the little tribe.
                                If it hadn't be for Hazeem and Carter, Khalidah wouldn't have survived the first century of her immortality, since a lonely young girl couldn't survive by her own means.Since the day she parted ways with her friends, Khalidah learnt many ways to survive the Game, to use her feminity to rob rich men's hearts and money. She also took a few heads, immortals who thought her to be an easy kill. Five years ago, Khalidah settled in Medina as a housemaid, worming her way in the heart and powerful money of her new master, fellow immortal Enver al'Ghazir. I guess Khalidah got tired of running and decided to choose an immortal ally for the time being. Yet, I'm afraid for her because I haven't seen the young girl in weeks and feel I have to put her on the missing roster of immortals status.

                                Since 1965 Khalida al-Najiran has been playing the Game with passion, scourging the Middle East immortals and going in any Islamized country of the world in search of the next Quickening, gaining in reputation and paralleling Safiyah Khan’s vigor though both women aren’t alike : Safiyah fights in the name of Allah, Khalida for power and strengh. Currently, Khalida is an international courrier, an occupation which allows her to travel constantly, though we wonder what she is doing in Tehran those days, it is hardly a welcomign place for women.

                                  • Thank you for the Harem women, Apollo. So far I have been working on the Bronze Age imortal women, the last batch of Appius' kills is coming soon! I also update the fate of the Harem women after their were freed and turoed by Khalida Al Najiran, they are doing well in Egypt, as part of an organisation of militants for the emancipation of Arab women.

                                      The legend of Darius speaks of a cruel warlord who took out an ancient Immortal at the gates of Paris in 451 and became a good man. The legend is apocryphal in the sense it cannot be clearly verified : was it truly a 'light quickening' or was Darius somehow possessed by the mind of the Immortal he killed ? In that case is Darius truly Darius or rather the Holy Man of Paris inhabiting the body of the ancient general ? We had the same story with Qasar Tserendjav, once a Mongol soldier who became a warlord, cunning and merciless, until he took out a holy man of Oulan-Bator and turned his back on the Mongol armies he led. Appius Lepidus Baro didn't belive in the tale of Darius and neither did he believe Qasar's story. To him, Qasar needed to be punished for his actions and he didn't listen to the Mongol's plea for mercy. My old friend Dyonisos, aka the Holy Man of Paris, didn't beg on his knees, he must have felt satisfied his powerful Quickenign would change a cruel warlord forever. When Appius took Qasar's Quickening, he felt something peaceful go through his soul as he told me. Qasar did change after all, and once again Appius regretted not having laid down his sword for a change.

                                        Background
                                        Original cultural affiliation : Roman
                                        Born : 361 BC, Roman Republic
                                        First death : 331 BC, Executed for leading a
                                        conspiracy of homicidal matrons
                                        First teacher : Caspian, aka Capellanus
                                        Known past associates : Caspian
                                        Known ennemies : Lucius Oranius Capito
                                        First recorded sighting : 1440. Paris France
                                        Escaped his execution, hunted by Lucius Capito

                                        The battle of Lucius Oranius Capito against Verus Crito ended with Capito taking the worst Quickening of his immortality : the usually, calm, collected hunter of ancietn immortals became a savage parody of the man he once was and was seen by his Watchers, as the well as Watchers of the immortals he killed later, like a mix between the Kurgan and the Four Horsemen. This Quickening really did him in, as if Crito’s personality had merched with Capito’s. The ancient Roman always was a decent fellow, not at all a Kurgan meme, someone who could be kind, who learnt to appreciate life and enjoyed it a lot. He would have been ashamed of seeing the monster he had turned into. And unforunately, this Dark Quickening infected Henry of Kent when the Englishman finally took out Capito.
                                        Crito was a savage monster, a psychopath who led poison rings and bands of marauders in the Middle Ages and in Renaissance Days. In the 19th century he ran a backwood cult in America, in the 20th century he was known as ‘the Kentucky Devil’, posing as Satan and running a satanist cult which he updated in Dilaya Governorate of Iraq, posing as a demon ready to wreak havoc on the decadent western world.
                                        It is an association of Capito and ancient immortal Selim Ubadah which allowed Crito’s cult to be taken down, a temporary alliance between the Arab and the Roman who would have hunted him down in other circustances. When Capito disclosed his plans to Ubadah and offered an alliance, he referred to Crito as a former disciple of an immortal called Capellanus in Roman Republic days, an Eastern immortal with a dragon tattoo on the right side of the head, barbaric and brutal and who scourged the Italian Peninsula. The name and the description fits Caspian’s and allows to add a new past identity to the Horseman’s chronicle.

                                        • Great write up for Tserendjav. Personally, I tend to veer towards the Quickening changing the Immortal rather than possessing them, since Dark Quickenings tap into the dark side of the Immortal receiving it, rather than it being possession. Storywise, it makes more sense too.

                                          Cheers

                                          • Like what you did there with Capito and the tie-in with Henry of Kent, plus adding another identity for Caspian. And Capito a noble headhunter before he killed Crito? Yeah, it kind of works. A bit like the ultra-religious headhunter Damon Case; not a bad man just driven by circumstance.

                                            Cheers

                                                The chronicle of Appius Lepidus Barro is one of constant regrets over the Immortals he needlessly killed in his youth, and then over the Immortals he was forced to kill, endlessly playing the Game, unable to afford himself the occasional burnout. He thought he was safe in Mumbai, India, but the word is out : on the Immortal scene, you are not safe. Not even close. In Mumai he built a cosy little life for himself, he had a house, servants, a lovely mistress, and then he investigatedf hte diseppearance of his mistress, who fell in the lutches of a local nasty Immortal by name of Sihan a cultist and guru who had an Immortal bodyguard with an even nasty temper as Appius' on a bad day.
                                                Barro killed Sihan's bodyguard, a Sikh warrior who was fully aware the Game was played with as much vigor i nthat part of Asia as it is played in the rest of the world. Not only did Appius regret killing a kindred spirit like Harjot Shahraj, he alwo wished he had killed the Eternal Sohan who raped and murdered his beloved Shandra.
                                                The Eternal Sihan is inactive those days, currently in prison after one hudnrted of women of India bore witness to his cruelty as a sect leader. I have an inkling his days are numbered now that I sent Appius some words on the Eternal Sihan's current whereabouts.

                                                  Known past associates : Carlo Baldoni
                                                  First recorded sighting : 1924 Yucatan Peninsula
                                                  Found by Carlo Baldoni on excavation site

                                                  The Maya held the belief that cenotes or limestone sinkholes were portals to the underworld and sacrificed human beings to please the water god Chaac. The most notable example of this is the "Sacred Cenote" at Chichen Itza where extensive excavations have recovered the remains of 42 individuals, half of them under twenty years old. In 1913, archaeologist Sylvanus G. Morley persuaded the Carnegie Institution to fund an extensive archaeological project at Chichén Itzá, which included mapping the ruins and restoring several of the monuments. The Mexican Revolution and the following government instability prevented the Carnegie from beginning work until 1924. Over the course of 10 years, the Carnegie researchers led by immortal archaeologist Carlo Baldoni excavated and restored the Temple of Warriors and the Caracol. Baldoni had the surprise of finding the well-preserved remains of an immortal girl who must have been locked up there for the past 1600 years. Baldoni recovered the body of the young woman today known as Antonia Guidera and taught her about human history, about the tragic demise of her people the Mayas, about the Conquistadores and more importantly about immortals and about the Game. Guidera recently landed a position as curator in Mexico City, trying to preserve the past of the natives of her original country. Watcher research was successful at establishing her aproximate birth date as circa 150 AD , making her one of the oldest living Mesomaerican Immortals.
