          • Here is one of the 3rd century Immortal women, who I found to be older than you thought...

            Myrine of Paeonia

            Known aliases : Timocleia of Thebes
            Arachidamia of Sparta
            Notable characteristics : None

            Most recent base of operations : Pyrrhus, Sparta
            Occupation : Leading Spartan warriors during
            Siege of Pyrrhus with Kyra of Sparta
            Prior occupations : Warrior woman
            Roster of Immortals Status : Missing
            Date : 272 BC
            Place : Pyrrhus
            Victor : N.A
            Watcher : Research, Southern Europe

            Background
            Original cultural affiliation : Greek
            Born : 6th century BC, Kingdom fo Paeona
            First death : 521-486 BC, Durign subjugation of
            Paeonians by armies of Darius the Great
            First teacher : Unrecorded
            Known past associates : Deoneces of Sparta
            First recorded sighting : 335 BC Thebes, Greece
            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, not 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.

            Same thing for Achaxe of Sarmatia, way too old to be an 3rd century woman, cross-identified as Ara of Sarmatia.

              • Another great list of names, dear Apollo, thank you. So far so good : our number are reaching 30 to 35 % female immortals on the overall Immortals population for each century. In the future, I hope we can push things forward and find more, reach a 40-45% ratio of immortal women identified by Watchers, depending on population growth and on the number of active players of the Game per century. Those would be acceptable number, depending on which region of the world we decide to explore (see map). There are regions of the world where more women are born than males, and yet we have 30% women of Immortals positively identified by Watchers, which remains extremely low.

                And also find more Bronze Age immortals of both sexes.

                Cheers!

                  • Thanks to your 4th century list, Apollo, I was able to find the origins of some characters with undetermined backgrounds.

                    Tangaki
                    Known aliases : Eumolpus of Aksum
                    Notable characteristics : Gregarious immortal,
                    never seen without his Nayangatom family
                    Weapon : Tribal spear, machete
                    Recorded kills : None known

                    Status
                    Most recent base of operations : Northern Ethiopia
                    Occupation : Nomad/pastoralist, living in mobile
                    livestock village, keeping a free target from
                    headhunters and feuding Ethiopian tribes
                    Prior occupations : Ditto, presumably
                    Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
                    Date : 13 May 1975
                    Place : Nyangatom land
                    Victor : The Chamelon of Eritrea
                    Watcher : Research, Eastern Africa

                    Background
                    Original cultural affiliation : Nyangatom
                    Born : 4th century, Aksum Kingdom, Northern Ethiopia
                    First death : Tribal warfare, on the wrong end of a
                    Turkana trisbesman spear
                    First teacher : Sunda Kastagir
                    Known past associates : Sunda Kastagir
                    First recorded sighting : 1973. Northern Ethiopia
                    Encounter with Sunda Kastagir, told about the
                    Nyangatom by the Afar Clan women, investigated
                    his existence, found him to be a former disciple

                    Tangaki was warned by Sunda Kastagir about Immortals coming after his head, the Immortal had a good laugh. Why

                    would so-called Immortals want to take his head, and what kind of power ? He had lived for generations, couldn’t remember whern he was born and had seen his people grow old, and die, the young being born to grow old again and each time passing as a witch who was impervious to old age and injury. He didn’t have a care in the world, so why should he worry about othersof his kind ? The passioned Kastagir wisely chose to leave Tangaki to his business, after all he had chosen his own path and was happy with it. When the Chamelon of Eritrea challenged him, Tangaki chose to defend his village with his spear. But the Chameleon was quicker than his spear and outmatched him. When she took his head, it was a short Quickening, it is obvious the Nyangatom never played the Game. But at least, he had lived a happier life than most Immortals could ever pretend to.

                    Hussein Khali
                    Known aliases : Hekanefer of Meroe

                    Most recent base of operations : Cairo, Egypt
                    Occupation : Sex-trafficker, selling sub-Saharan
                    Africa girls to the slave markets of Egypt and of
                    the Maghreb
                    Prior occupations : Slaver

                    Victor : Kashta of Nubia
                    Watcher : Research, Northern Africa

                    Background
                    Original cultural affiliation : Barabra Nubians
                    Born : 4th century, Kingdom of Nubia, Sudan
                    First death : Killed during foiled rape, the Berber
                    princess he attacked retaliated with her knife
                    First teacher : Neberfer, Brotherhood of Ra
                    Known associates : Omar Fakroun
                    Known past associates : Hamza el-Kahir, Nebefer
                    Known ennemies : Kashta of Nubia, Faiza
                    Bouembassa
                    First recorded sighting : 1641. Tripolitania
                    Selling slaves to immortal Omar Fakroun

                    What huge man ! The lifelong hatred between Hussein Khali and Kashta of Nubia reached a boiling point when Hussein started trafficking women on Kashta territory, a city protected by the Nubian giant and while the giant can be gentle, his is a walking nightmare toward immortals who threaten the safety of mortals. Hussein the slaver and rapist drives Italian cars, wears armani, is a mundane immortal who surfs the net but even with a classy appearance, his is a murdering bastard who lived too long and Kashta finally killed him after investigating the slave-ring which saw the disappearance of his handsmaiden's daughter. The daughter's track led him to a complicated network running from
                    Caro and extending itself to countries of the Maghrebe and Westenr Africa. While Hussein's death won't prevent another slaver to take his plac,e at least that one is out of the Game.

                    Place : Thessaloniki
                    Victor : Kyra Xanthos
                    Watcher : Andreas Kos

                    Background
                    Original cultural affilation : Byzantine
                    Born : 307 Cydonia, Greece
                    First death : 337 Killed by guards of Emperor
                    Constantine in a plot against his life
                    First teacher : Andre Korda
                    Known past associates :Andre Korda
                    Known ennemies : Anatellon, Kyra Xanthos
                    First recorded sighting : 1608. Thebes, Greece.
                    Inconclusive fight against Anatellon

                    Mourgos was a local assassin and murder-for-hire who killed anybody for a fee. Be it the husband of a rich woman, or the rival of a local gangleader, it didn't matter to him. Other immortals didn't bother him so long as they meant their own business, until he lured the attention of Anatellon in Thebes whose friend he killed on his wedding day, and the attentions of the even more dangerous Kyra Xanthos when he started killing on her hunting grounds. His battle against Anatellon was Inconclusive because of witnesses, his battle against the Thessaloniki Adder wasn't : she struck like a viper while he was isolated and couldn't defend himself, having discarded his sword during a particularly delicate
                    assignment.
                    The Thessaloniki Adder couldn't afford a,ny rival on her grounds, could she ?

                    Borwyn of Deira

                    Mercia, Selyf ap Cynan and Iago ap Bel
                    Watcher : Research, the Chronicle of Ceirdwyn

                    Background
                    Original cultural affiliation : Cornovii
                    Born : 347. Cornoviorum, present Midlands of
                    England
                    First death : 367 Fighting invading Norsemen,
                    soldier i nthe First Cohort of Conovii
                    First teacher : Richomer of Dover
                    Known past associates : Richomer of Dover
                    Known ennemies : Ceirdwyn
                    First recorded sighting : 581. Kingdom of Deira,
                    Northern England. Warrior under King Aelfrith of
                    Bernicia, encounter with Richomer of Dover

                    Borwyn was a brute, a huge warrior of a man who pillaged and raped his way across Northumbria and was the product of his time : a brutal and barbaric immortal while Ceirdwyn had experienced the benefits of a civilized empire in Rome.Nearly two centuries after the fall of Rome, Ceirdwyn had to reinvent herself a a warrior-woman while never losing the benevolent side of herself, reflecting the wisdom and kidness of Boddicaea (aka Xanthia of Melitus). When she faced Borwyn, she stood her ground and faced what was to come. Sometimes In the Game, there is no choice, no moral ambfguity : you have to fight the fight and to take names.
                    From the Chronicle of Ceirdwyn

                    Notes : Early decline of the Cornovii appears to set in at Viroconium Cornoviorum, earlier than with many British cities which retain their prosperity until the time of the great barbarian attack of 367. Late in the same century, the only known British military unit, the First Cohort of Cornovii (Cohors Primae Cornoviorum), can be found serving at the Pons Aelius (Newcastle-upon-Tyne) garrison at the eastern end of Hadrian's Wall. By this time the five hundred-or-so men of the unit are probably under the command of Coel Hen of the 'kingdom' of Northern Britain.

                    Born : 4th century, Kingdom of Bashkiria, Russia
                    First death : Victim of persecutions agaisnt
                    Maygiars, hunted and murdered with hsi family

                    Hungary. Crime leader in var against rival clan led
                    by Alajos Kovac, eventually allied himself to him

                    Matthew of Salisbury found old Marko wasn’t such an urban legend after all, when he investigated the immortal

                    mobster in Minneapolis, at the head of his own brigade, tryiong to do the same work as Elliott Ness in Chicago. Cracking down organized crime was important to him, cleaning Minneapolis’ househod from its vermin, and he was very good at his job, gaining the nickname ‘the hound’ in the police department.
                    When Matthew found Marko Folkus existed and was an immortal, he knew he just couldn’t simply put him behind bars. The night before his arrrest, the hound paid him a visit and dispatched him immortal-style.
                    Although not a vigilante, Matthews took lessons from his partnership with Charles Maycoe during the 1880’s, when they were taming the Old West, and was aware that sometimes the Law needed the assistance from the odd immortal.

                    Triying to seduce of the wives of Al-Ghawai Raif

                    When Rashid al-Qadir challenged Halis Ag Emoctar in the middle of Marrakesh's bazaar, the Persian warrior felt confident about he superiority of his blade, scoffing at the Tuareg immortal in blue robes. After the last song of the Muezzin had ended, both men began fighting : scimitar and main gauche against Tuareg longsword, two blades made of the purest steel clashing and wielded by fierce combattants.Both men being of equal streghts, the battle lasted for two hours, after both immortals had scoured the streets of Marrakesh, fighting and cursing each other. Then al-Qadir attempted a risky move against his opponent, hitting ground, using his left hand to prevent his fall, and his right hand to strike at the heart of the dragon; a move that allowed him to take the head of Mehmet Osman twenty years ago but didn't work against the Tuareg. Rashid al-Qadir fought well and was removed from the Game when he least expected it. This is the way of Allah the misericordious.

For twenty years he has been plundering the Horn of Africa, and then Western African countries, avoiding other immortals, going so far as allying himself with Mement-Ra’s immortals to avoid losing his head during the Immortals War. He is thriving now, living off cheap third-world labor forces, same way Hammer did in his time.

                      Found and killed by Chang

                      Chang, the top-assassin of the Far East specializing in political assassinations was in Seoul to murder a general of Soyuth Korea army - on the payroll of North Korea - after having savored the irony of murdering a North Korean politician while of the payroll of South Korea. Chang was an immortal who liked irony, 'the salt of immortality' as he called it; if there was a ruthless opportunitic, that was Chang. While in Seoul, Chang sought some rest and recreation in a popular tavern of the city's centertown where he attended the show of a local dancing woman. The woman turnout to be an immortal, so far unlisted in our chronicles. Chang, ever the opportunist, hunted the young woman after her show and took her out; this wasn't a fight, the poor woman didn't carry a sword at the time of her death. A merciless execution, but you could see hatred in the eyes of the cold Chang who rarely let slip any feelings from his cold demeanor. Here was a man with scores to settle with women as his 'dispute' with his foster mother Kellistra may attest.

                          tumultous romance with Angus MacFadden

                          Black Margaret sought the legendary Masamune katana belonging to the late Take Ne of Alexandria, now in the possession of his student, Connor MacLeod. Margaret offered a tidy sum of money to the Highlander for the sword, but MacLeod stubbornly refused. Margaret offfered her Moorish sword in ecchange, but MacLeod is a stubborn immortal. She must have wanted it a lot, because she finally threatened MacLeod’s wife with a fate worse than death if MacLeod didn’t hand her the katana. This got MacLeod very angry. He sent his wiffe back in the house and challenged Black Margaret. Margaret laughed but she saw she had no choice. The fight was very brutal, MacLeod put all his strengh, his soul and his love for bonny Heather in the fight and in the end, stood victorious, Margaret falling to her knees.
                          I didn’t expect MacLeod to take the head of the Moorish woman. It was a powerful Quickening. It scared poor Heather and put the fire to the barn, but you could see the love of the mortal woman for her husband, and how much in awe she was before the Quickening, though she did witness one once, when the Kurgan beast murdered Ramirez. Helping the Highlander to his feet, Heather embraced her husband and together, they buried the fallen Moor.

                            long-gone Immortals from Mesopotamia

                            In 1900 Immortal Aurel Stein (the Immortal Indiana Jones) uncovered the city of Khotan,capital city of the Kingdom of Khotan, buried under centuries of sand. Stein had been inspired in his research by the writings of fellow immortal Hsien-Tsiang who had travelled through Central Asian and along the Silk Road where he was met by an ancient woman by name of Amestris.
                            Amestris hailed from the Kingdom of Khotan and had reinvented herself as a wife of Mahomet in the Mecca under the name of Safiya bint Ho-Yay where she met Immortal Selim Ubadah. Ubadah gave Amestris the incentive for telling fantasy stories of ancient Immortals, wizards, and adventurers, thus making her the Immortals’ immortal chronicler.
                            Intrigued by the stories of Hsien-Tsiang, Stein decided to research the existence of the strange Amestris and of her city when he was sixteen years from achieving Immortality during an expedition to Central Asia.
                            The other source of inspiration to Stein was the work of the Swedish explorer and geographer, Sven Hedin (aka Immortal Tosh Ivarsson), who had done extensive, detailed mapping of large parts of Central Asia, including the routes of the famous Silk Road. Central Asia was an area that theretofore had not been mapped in great detail.
                            Aurel Stein eventually found the city of Khotan through a combination of luck and observation of how the site was irrigated for centuries with water that had been redirected via canals from the nearby rivers, including the Kara-kash River. Stein's deduction was that the ruins of the city laid under the village of Hetian/ Yotkan.
                            During his diggings, he found tablets that described a woman of great beauty and wisdom, named Amestris, confirmign the existence of the woman and her origins as the fabled Scheherazade from the 1001 Nights, or more accurately, Schahrazad, a captive/consort of Immortal Hassan-ii-Sabah.

She recounted how she mourned the passing of her husband, Boris (aka Bors, no doubt) who fell by the axe of a ‘savage Viking’ (Silas) but mourned her absence of children even more, beign unable to be a mother herself, or only through adoption.

                            cross-identified as Maharbal of Carthage

                            Siobhan of Cork was a good woman, one who hated the British who soiled and pillaged her land, killed the men of her country, raped its women and enslaved its children. This is why she led guerilla tacticts against the Brits killing countless soldiers and officers of the Queen, passing herself as a supernatural being with her ear-piercing shrikes and death masks, training her young warriors to do the same. The Banshees of Cork were eventually investigated by Maharbal of Carthage, at this time working for the English; Maharbal fought the Banshee, discovering his nature as an immortal, taking her out, silencing Siobhan forever.

                            The chronicles of Ben Said-al-Magribi report how in 868 he fought the forces of Count Vimara Peres during the first reconquista of Iberia by Spanish troops, the first attempt to repell Moorish occupation of the Iberian peninsula. Ben Said was in Northern Portugal, when in the middele of a heated battle he sensed the presence of one of his kind, a mercenary who introduced himself as Glismoda, a Suevi briefly listed on the roster of immortals in 468 when she fought Cristovao Bastos during the sack of Coimbra by the Suevi tribe. Glismoda was thought to have been killed by the Portuguese hero, but somehow lived four centuries before re-appearing as a soldier of Count Peres. The battle raged on, ending on a stalemate by the end of the day. The following evening, Ben Said and Glismoda faced each other as immortals are prone to do. Ben Said fought with the same vigor and passion he bestowed on the Portuguese army and won against the Suevi warrior, taking her raw power and battle instinct; the following day, Ben Said won another victory when his army successfully defeated the army Count Vimara Peres.

                                one-hundred and seventy men, locked in a sealed
                                vault for three hundred years

                                Found asleep in a cave by Zhou Tong who made
                                of Fooxin a master assassin at his service

                                As with Pharaxes, Fooxin Hu was another one of Maharbal’s villains who was entombed for centuries before being freed. Their own hellish Phantom Zone, driven insane after centuries spent alone in the darkness, in a state of half-life. Already insane upon First Death, Fooxin was found by Master assassin Zhou Tong who took her to his service and taught her the rules of immortal life, but soon found out she was an uncontrollable character. He was forced to send her away, preferring to concentrate on another project of his, five immortal assassins under his control (see Poison Clan chronicle). Left alone, Fooxin Hu became free to become the serial assassin she dreamed of being, fending for herself in the Game with her Ten fingers and palm technique she used on countless men, and presumably on her fair share of immortals.
                                The she met up with Maharbal of Carthage, travelling ot the Orient by the end of the 14th century, frensh from warring against the Golden Horde of the Khans, and tried her technique on him. Maharbal turned the table on her and dispatched her forever.

                                  Khemistos and Kaneptah were a deadly husband-and-wife duo of remorseless killers, opportunist cultists staging cults across the world, in manners fitting the countries they settled in : followers of Anugbis in Egypt, Voodoo in the Carribean and Western Africa, Aztec followers in Latin America, snuff pornographers in Ciudad Juarez, followers of Kali in India and who knows were else. Each time they killed, they shared the power of theri victim.

                                  They must have killed dozens of Immortals those two, in each part of the world they started a cult, gathering followers who would kidnapp previously identified Immortals and bring them to their coven where Kaneptah and Khemistos would kill them, sharing the Quickenings, with their public in awe in front of their power over lightnings, never questioning the transfer of energy. They started as an Anubis cult in 898, killing Immortals from Egypt and Nubia; in New Orleans during the late 18th century (1768-1790); then more Immortals in Ciudad Juarez from 1983 to 1992. There are a lot of missing Immortals in the chronicles, we suspect them of having murdered people from pre-Columbian America, Carribean, Southern Asia, especially India; also in the jungles of Thailand and Cambodia.

                                  Finally Armnius Vambery got to them last September, havng followed theri trails since the Angkor Vat massacre of 1953, two dozen mortal followers killed in mass suicide, as it is the case when they decide to leave for another part of the world. More Immortals from Cambodia reported missing. But this time, they didn't have the time to kill more, Vambery was watching from afar and finally tracked them down to their lair. So stupid of them to leave tracks.
                                  So stupid to live like vampires, sleeping by day, living by night. Not even good with swords, they never bothered with giving a fair fight to the Immortals they killed. A long last, their reing of terror is over.

                                    Meeting Hugh Fitzcairn, rebuked his advances

                                    That woman didn't know her place, no sir, and she wouldn't even look at me in the eye when I talked to her, as if I was some commoner barely worth tending to her gardens. But old Slocum is no goose and knows how to recognize a woman who doesn't know her place.
                                    She wasn't much of a Christian either, giving all sorts of talk on how women should dispose of their bodies freely and do as they please. Well, I couldn't accept it, no way. At least, Myra Clinton was kind to me, my sweet lady. But that's not the kind of talk a Watcher may use.
                                    I would like to ask re-assignement, dear Sir, since that English monk came into town yesterday night, to show Ms Pembroke her true place in the world and in the Game.

                                    Cordially,
                                    John Slocum
                                    September 1969

                                    From the Record of the Tribunal
                                    14 November 1869

                                    In the matter of the dismissal of John L. Slocum, the Tribunal ruled to uphold the decision of Slocum's Area Supervisor to dismiss with prejudice on the grounds of gross incompetence and negligence. The Tribunal agrees that the initial allegations that Mr. Slocum had physical relationships with and/or contributed to the deaths of his assignments, Myra Clinton and Roberta Pembroke, cannot be proven from the evidence presented.
                                    However, the evidence does clearly indicate that Slocum falsified Watcher records and, in one instance, destroyed a Watcher Chronicle. Both of these are gross offences in the eyes of the Tribunal and are grounds for dismissal with prejudice. And, in light of his contemptible behavior before this Tribunal, the Tribunal reminds Mr. Slocum that he will be Watched for an undisclosed number of years. Should he attempt retaliation or betrayal of this organization in any manner, he will again face the Tribunal, this time under the charge of Treason. He should need no reminder that the penalty for Treason is death.

                                    who taught her the rules of Immortality

                                    Huan Mulan spent some time as protégé of Kumari Simati, an opium den manager of Kalkota located in the city’s Chinatown. Not a bad woman, Kumamri rejected the violence of the Game but was blind to her mortal husband’s taste for young girld. When Surrendra put his hand on Huan during the night, the Chinese immortal stabbed him and left him for dead. Kumari alerted by her husband’s scream for help tried to stop Huan but found her kitten was a tigress in disguise. Huan decided Kumari should have protected her and needed her punishment, which she gave to her, immortal-style.

Thos stories come from poor souls, madmen beliving themselves to be actual wolves and vampires.
                                    One of those people was Katia Esau, an immortal woman afflicted with lycanthropism : during full mooon she thoughts herself a wolf and thus attacked and killed mortals.
                                    When she assulted Mor Than, she didn't even seem aware of his immortal nature; Than killed her and then kept her prisoner for three days, torturing and raping her before finaly tiring of her. He took her head and thus gave her everlasting peace.

                                    War against Avar Khaganate, challenged and
                                    killed by Mor Than, mercenary in service to the Avarians

                                    Mor Than was travelling across the Danube when he sensed the presence of a German warrior woman who introduced herself as Okolona. The fight lasted long, Okolona putting up a good fight and nearly taking the advantage against the Avarian immortal. The fact Okolona used a Celtic sword and using fighting techniques similar to those of Ceirdwyn indicates she may have been a student of the Briton warrior or, eventually, of Alex Raven. Careful study of both women's chronicle proves Inconclusive about Okolona's origins.

She used to be a discreet player of the Game, that one, bidding her time, like a spider weaving her webb, waitign for the time of the Gathering. But somehow, she changed over time, retired from the Game and seldom welcome anyone in her bed. So unless she took a Quickening that did her in, she had a quick change of heart, I don’t really know.

                                    her husband as their son

                                    Brigitta yearned for a child of her own and when she found Bossart on the streets of Atwerp, beging in rags, she took him under her roof and made him a part of her family, as if he was her own. Unfortunately, Bossart was a killer locked in the body of a child and he had located Brigitta long ago, posing as a beggar in the street near her house. Soon, he was fed and clothed in her house, but didn’t get on well with her husband Jan who suspected something oddd about the ‘child’, he spoke too much like an adult. When Brigitta found the dead boy of her husband in the garden she screamed in despair, so wracked in grief she didn’t sense the little killer coming after her head. And soon her short chronicle was finished.

                                      • Thank you Apollo. Good new list of names. How do you decide on which name you are going to pick for the new lists ? Do you have a master plan in mind or are they at random. The woman from Volga Bulgaria has a very interesting to tell, in relation to the Kurgan and Darius. The chronicles I posted are updated bios of women with previously undetermined background. Some of the names you gave me are brand new characters, others I linked them to those previously created characters.

                                          Already in your files under a different names, but we already have a ferocious Viking woman. So I kept the new name and discarded the previous one.
                                          I also updated the birth date.

                                          In 1015, Ceirdwyn proved herself a worthy student of Xanthiaof Melitus and General Cosntantine as she led the army of Sveinn Hakomason at the battle of Nesjar. This time, she faced another warrior-princess such as her, Thea Hovik, disciple of Viking warrior and plunderer Kretarno (see Kronos chronicle) who centuries later who cause harm to Ceirdwyn’s first teacher. How the world of immortality is small, how connected are those immortals ! Thea challenged Ceirdwyn and fought her like a she-devil, while Ceirdwyn was like a tomcat.
                                          Thea had the pretense of ruling Norway after the death of her lover, King Olaf Haraldsson, and convinced him to let her lead his armies in warfare. She did hold her own against Ceirdwyn, but after a long, strenuous battle, lost her head and King Haraldsson had to find himself another consort and anotehr general.

                                          From the Chronicle of Ceirdwyn

                                            Not a specific master plan in general, but for each era I like a good mix of Immortals across as many cultures as possible, although sometimes the dominant cultures will have more representatives. As will the denser population centres such as empires and larger kingdoms.

                                            • Good reasoning from your part Apollo. More chronicles will come this week. After consulting my lists, I find myself with need for more women : 12 for the 16th century please. You really seem to enjoy your research as much I as enjoy writing around those Immortals ! Btw, did Apollo2 finish writing his immortals epic ?

                                                  1980 was the year the conflict between Iran and Iraq escalated in all-out war, a war that would last the good part of the decade, causing the deaths of hundreds of thousands of civilians and soldiers and plundge the Midele Eastern world in chaos. In the middle of this turmoil, the death of an obscure Iraqui maiden went unnoticed, safe for the Watcher of Sharuq Aminedi, a former soldier and man of independent means who hunted immortals of the Middle East for thrills and in the name of Allah. The Maiden was found to be the wife of a merchant killed during bombings of Badgad and to show the signs of ancient origins : she spoke a Persian dialect that wasn’t use since the 12th century, had remarkable fighting and acrobatic abilities only old immortals can master and her demeanor showed the serenity of the truly ancient. However, she fell to the blade of Aminedi, her Quickening illuminating the nightly sky of the ancient Baghdad. All we have left of the woman now identified as Izdihar Hijaz ibnat Raia is a picture and her rapier, a Damascus sword of superb quality now kept in the Watcher museum at the Geneva Academy.

                                                  Interrupting the affair between Amanda and
                                                  Mozart after seducing the composer out of his wits

                                                  A shadowy figure of unknown origins who made quite an appearance on the immortal scene when she caused a scandal in Vienna by uncovering the affair of Mozart with Amanda the international thief. Became a spy with an international background, proved her competence with a sword and was finally challenged by John Henry Archibald in Dallas where she was predicted she would meet her death by an old gypsy witch.
                                                  In 1727, Carmen sought to emulate Amanda by being a scandal in the court of Vienna, going so far as stealing one of her sexual conquests : the great Mozart himself.
                                                  The irritated Amanda suggested to Carmen she finds herself a new game.
                                                  In 1897, she named herself Carmela La Morte in San Francisco, an adventuress who sought out gold-diggers to marry; she was confronted by Cybelle McWyrter who forcefully asked her to stop robbing her past selves - which is how we could connect Cybelle to Carmella.

                                                  It has been long suspected that Carmen Santiago was a past disciple of the elusive Kellistra who bore the name of Carmella LaMorte during the 17th century in Tuscany and that Carmen chose that name as a mean of honoring her teacher’s memory. It is an encounter between Ursula Katz in 1910 and Carmen that gave us a clue on her origins as the shady Buxente of Soule who first became immortal in the 10th century and amrried the Duke of Gascony in 1023, becoming a political she-devil as well as a skilled player of the Game, wearing a black hood to hide her feminity. In 1152 she was the best friend and confidente of Eleanor of Aquitaine who married Henry II of England, thus securing the joining of the region of Soule (part of Aquitaine) with the Crown of England, political scheme that came to the ears of Richeard of Mercia, not yet founder of the British SIS. Carmen and Richeard had a heated romance and created more than one scandal in the court of England.
                                                  By the 16th century, Soule became ensnared in the political, religious and military manoeuvres derived from its shaky position, with the French Wars of Religion affecting the province tremendously. Carmen went in conflict agaisnt the Knights fo Charlemagne and this is where the Watchers lost her trace until her re-apparance as lover of musical composer Mozart, rivaling with Amanda for the favors of the musician. Amandaand Carmen must have found funny to compete for the love of a mortal whose music was made of such beauty and greatness it touched their souls more deeply than anything they could have experienced I ncenturies of Immortality. After Mozart’s untimely death, they attended his funeral and parted company, not quite friends, but not ennemies either.
