  • 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
        Notable characteristics : Tattoos on forearms
        Weapon : Moorish boradsowrd
        Recorded kills : None known
        Inconclusive fight against Faiza Bouembassa,
        1816

        Status
        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
        Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
        Date : 12 May 2000
        Place : Cairo
        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.

        Borwyn of Deira
        Known aliases : Bleddfach of the Cornovii
        Notable characteristics : None
        Weapon : Northumbrian broadsword
        Recorded kills : None known

        Status
        Most recent base of operations : Northumbria
        Present-day England
        Occupation : Warrior in the army of Aethelfrid of
        Northumbria
        Prior occupations : Ditto
        Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
        Date : 616, Battle of Chester
        Place : Chester, England
        Victor : Ceirdwyn, warrior in the armies of Cearl of
        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.



        Rashid al-Qadir
        Known aliases : Spithridates of Carmania
        Notable characteristics : None
        Weapon : Moorish broadsword

        Inconclusive fight against Al-Ghawi Raif, 1310

        Most recent base of operations : Morocco
        Occupation : Soldier
        Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
        Date : 1 April 1405
        Place : Outskirts of Marrakesh
        Victor : Halis ag Emoctar
        Watcher : Ahmed Irzan

        Background
        Original cultural affiliation : Persian
        Born : 317; Carmania, Arsacid Empire
        First death : 337, Warring against Banu Taghlib
        tribe which settled in Persia
        First teacher : Khojasteh
        First recorded sighting : 1310. Medina, Arabia
        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.

        hundred years old

        Kun Hou was thought killed a long time ago by Hideo Tanaka after the old Samurai took out Bo Gang in 1615, but Kun Hou re-appeared in New-York in 1995, contracting deals with Graydon Hammer to developp mining industries in Africa. 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.

          Known past associates : Oppa Eunkyhung
          First recorded sighting : 1953. Seoul, South Korea
          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.

              Original cultural affiliation : Mauritanian
              Born : 4th century; Kumbi Saleh, Mauritania,
              Empire of Ghana
              First death : Spouse of King Khaya Magan put to

              First teacher : Tak-Ne of Alexandria
              Known ennemies : Connor MacLeod
              First recorded sighting : 1513. Edimburgh,
              Scotland. At court of King James IV of Scotland,
              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.

                Known past associates : Selim Ubadah
                First recorded sighting : 654. Mecca, Arabia
                Encounter with Selim Ubadah, told him stories of
                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.

                Maybe it is a blessing to Llewelyth to welcome young Kenneth in the alehouse, but I have received worrying reports from the monks up in London about the Saxon's activities. He isn't a two years odl orphan, but a nearly three hundred years old little savage who killed many immortals who tried to help him. I fear for my mistress who craving for motherhood will make her bling to the boy's odd behavior of open hositlity to all those put themselves between himself and his mother.

                Llewelyth Develynn referred to herself as a former Knight of the Round table, once a student and consort of Bors de Ganys who sieged at Camelot under a male identity, she told so to Alex Raven during their investigation of a massacre of British soldiers in 1411. 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.

                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.

                    China
                    First death : Sentenced to death for the murders of
                    one-hundred and seventy men, locked in a sealed
                    vault for three hundred years
                    First teacher : Zhou Tong
                    Known ennemies : Maharbal of Carthage
                    First recorded sighting : 750. Kingdom of Turpan
                    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.

                      conflict with Kashta of Nubia and Sit-Hathor Iunet

                      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.

                        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.

                        Eastern countries abound with stories of werewolves and vampires, trolls and ghouls, written to scare little childrne into obedience and being cautious when not under their parent's watch. 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.

                        Only recorded two kills in two hundred years, a connection with sailor Bevil Grenville (ex husband) and charisma to burn : I don’t know how many immortals Ele'ele landed in her bed, maybe fifty or so, and I wagger some of them are buried in her plantation. 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, the Solomon woman 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.

                        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.

                              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.

                                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.

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.

                                          Yeah sorry about that, Gardner, it should be Cospaia. I typed in the "a" instead of "o". She's from the Republic of Cospaia in northern Umbria.

                                              I never understood why Zabibah chose to impersonate Kahina the Berberp Princess (also an Immortal and a hot-blooded woman) but she was an old friend of the woman and wanted to create confusion for her lover/friend'sennemies. The plan backfired because all those who had a score to settle with Kahina came knocking at her dooer,sword in hand. Not her smartest decision. I told her so, I warned her but she told me she had nothign to fear ; she would live until the days of the Gathering, she claimed. I went though thousands of pages of the old chronicles looking into her, I hacked the computer databases, but could find no trace of her, not that the Watchers could hope to get a clue on her present whereabouts. Me, I found out where she is, at least I guessed it. The important chief of state counting on her wild tales of the future to keep things in order in his country is... YOU SHAKE NERO AND KNOW

                                              I am the fly on the wall who gave the incentive to King Cyrus to constitute his army of immortal warriors, a cadre ofpowerful combattants instantly replaced after one falls on the field of battle, naming them immortals was a joke frommy part. Interestingly enough, history kept my joke for historians to record as a fact of life. Oh I knew King Cyrus well, I knew many kings and emperors and always reminded them they were all naked udner their clothing and needed good protection. The actual immortal who led the battalion was another disciple of mine, Pantea Artheshbod and she also put her mark on the history of mankind. I even wrote a page on the net dedicated to her (not on wiki, though, too amateurish to my tastes). Pantea taught to King Cyrus to respect the customs and religions of the lands he
                                              conquered which taught him to better centralize the power he held on the countries he he had a hold on, and also to respect women ! Well recognized for his achievements in human rights, politics, and military strategy, as well as his influence on both Eastern and Western civilizations accordign to the wiki pega, ha ! He has to thank Cleophon of Athens and myself for that, we taught him well.
                                              A hot-blooded woman Pantea, a woman who flexes her brain as much as her muscles. Gone missing in the 7th century and I hope still active. I miss hour traning sessions and the perfume on her body on morning.

                                              Another one of my disciples is Moesa, and I am rightly proud of how she turned out to be, a survivor of the Kingdom of Moab who now lives on the fringes of the immortal scene in Utah among the Mormons community,caring little about the looks of pity or scorn she gets because she cannot bear any children. God knows she has enough in her classes !
                                              She escaped the blade of my brother Kronos at a time he was looking for me, avoiding torture, rape and death (did he know anything else ?) and the blades of several other hunters. Once a rape victim herself by Ahaziah of Ramoth-Gilerad, she spent centuries hunting him before Anatellon got to him first in Lutetia in 421. I am the one who sent a pigeon after her with a message, writing to her she could stop hunting and start healing. And healing she did,not like Cassandra (writing a mea culpa, old man?) who never stopped hunting me. My brother, my slave, hunting me for thousands of years. Now both are dead. Why do I surround my self with suchintense women, I don't know. Maybe I
                                              want to heal those women, make penance. Had I been less cruel in my young days, I wouldn't make penance so much, but then... Maesa wouldn't be here, active and healthy. Was Cassandra somehow giving me the incentive to be a healer after having been a Horseman ? Better ask Sean Burns next time I visit him.

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 meke 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 pennsula 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.

                                              Thai Anh Tam had a way of looking at me, she didn't need words to tell me "I am on to you, don't try your tricks with me !" She knew the darkness in a man's heart and how to cure someone from his demons, she had a penetrating gaze which I found unsettling and she is rumored in Watcher's circles to have tamed the Kurgan and Lobon Naro-Boshing, two of the most vicious killers on the immortal scene. With me she had nothing to fear, but she knew the darkness in my heart and when she asked me who I was... I couldn't help but speak the truth. I was Methos,bringer of death, master of slaves, prince of chaos. She retorted I was a raping bastard who had a huge ego and that was all. I had a good laugh, because that was true enough : whe were four killers on horse my brothers and I, and that's about it. We met during the Third Ly Dynasty, circa 600 AD and briefly met again in several occasions when Ineeded to ehlp someone go though the throes of the dreaded Dark Quickening. As I did with Xanthia.
                                              She was successful each time, a precious ally in that mad world. She was last seen in 1890 in Khe Sanh but she is doing quite well, careful as I was to erase her from current records o nthe Watcher's databases.

                                                I am Methos the rapist according to Cassandra, but I never enslaved or raped any of the little girls I adopted as foundlings and saw growing to womanhood. There are worse evils. Dasmapia's foster father was a violent brute and a sex pervert who killed his own child in drunken state. Issam of Awsan is the woman who mentored her and sent after any men enslaving and raping their own daughters, like the Eurynides of Greek myth. I even went though the chronicle of Issam to check is she was a student of Cassandra, but no : Xanthia mentored her. Even so, Xanthia had a bite that could be even more ferocious than Cassandra's. That joke about the difference between a social worker and a pitbull ?
                                                Xanthia made it up. Good one. Well, Dasmapia was as enraged a pitbull as one can be and she avenged many girls and women in her three hundred year sof immortality until she lost her head against Darek Alak, losing her concentration in the fury she felt toward all men. I am glad I never enslaved her, or she would have castrated me on the spot !

                                                First recorded sighting : 1975. Memphis TE
                                                Convinced Goodman Fletcher to lay down his
                                                sword and to spread his message of everlasting
                                                peace, Fletcher was killed shortly therafter

                                                Ah Vincent ! Lost somewhere on a road, looking for an unattainable goal he never could reach. Born in a time predating the Game, seeing the folly of it but never realising the Game was such a part of Immortality that both could be never be parted. I long suspected Vincent was older than I am, possibly 10,000 years old but who can prove it ?
                                                For all I know he could be the first cro-magnon Immortal and his first head was the last Neanderthal, killed with a stone axe. Though I wonder how he could have lived for 40,000 years without his memory crumbling under the weight of time. Even I with my 5,000 years of existence cannot remember how I first died, at least offically. Some idiot wrote my head was crushed by a camel during a stampede, that's wrong ! I died in battle like a mighty warrior, a giant among men. "When the fiction looks better than the truth, print the fiction", my old friend Mark Twain used to say.
                                                Getting back to Vincent, not even the oldest of us know how old he was so he may well have been a cro-magnon, he looks like one after all. When I spoke to him the first time, he never realised who I was and I seriously believed his mind had crumbled when Iistened to his idiotic antics about fear beign the source of all evil on earrth. The source of evil is us, of course. Just us. What I find truly shameful is how his "teachings" led other Immortals to their death, which is a perversion of his message of peace : lay down your sdword so we alllive together like a big happy family. Well, all families are dysfunctional and have their nasty elements. Like my dearly departed family.

                                                  frightened Holophernes troops

                                                  A notable "villain" of the Bronze Age, Holofernes has made his mark on history as the victim of the fabled Judith who decapitated him with help from er handsmaiden, a scene depcted in paintings countless of times, includign a famous one by Artemissia Gentileschi, aka Immortal Artemissia of Helicarnassos.. Holofernes knew the true sense of terror and made a point of terrorizing and enslaving the populations of the countries and kingdoms he conquered, thus making his teacher very proud. His teacher was Kronos, my brother, thus making of Holofernes my nephew by association.
                                                  Well, Holofernes, Kronos and I shared one trait of character : a definite weakness for women. This weakness allowed Cassandra to "kill" Kronos and escape from him (I remember she nearly castrated him with her own teeth) and Judith of Bethulia to reach him with her handsmaiden (who may have been Elishevah of Samaria, her teacher) and decapitated him with a knife. His muffled screams for help were mistaken for orgastic screams and when his body was found, it was too late : Judith and her friend had vanished like a puff of smoke.

                                                  I really get a kick at writing those entries for the Watcher's chronicles because it allows me to disclose the fates of lesser-known Immortals of the Bronze Age and also to make my presence known as the sole contemporary Immortal Watcher. I said contemporary, guys... Get it ? Yes, it may be childsih, but at my age one can afford to be childish sometimes.

                                                  Recently I was asked by the Watcher community in the department of research to be less sarcastic and more humble in my reports. Hence this : I humbly think of Xmucane each time I savor a cup of hot cocoa because this is the woman to whom we owe this modest pleasure since she started cultivating cocal in the 19th century before common era, a woman of major importance in the history of mankind who dwarfs modern preparations of cocoa because of the love and passion she put in it. Where some of you guy call me 'granddad' behind my back, I can tell you this was a 'granma' who could single-handedly beat every Immortal coming after her and have time for a cup of hot chocolate while she wasprocessin the Quickening she took. And believe me, there is more than one Immortal who regretted not havign accepted a cup of her brew instead of foolishly challenging her.

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

                                                    Appius Baro was hopelessly trying to find some respite from the Game as a lietnant of the French colonial army and thought he had found a nice consort with my former student but she only sought informations about the French army from him. She sold whatever things she could get from him to her mortals friends and soon a string of murders occured in the ranks of the French military in Phnom Pen. Appius wouldn't allow that and though he had simpathies to Mei's cause, he had to take action agaisnt her actions. I was charitable enough not to tell Appius who exactly he had to kill.

                                                    Mentored by her husband, conquistador Diego
                                                    Miruelo, who married the pre-Immortal and taught
                                                    her to hunt Immortals with a pack of dogs

                                                    The chronicle of "Flor Castillo" and "Cecilia Barraza" was apparently a mix-up written by Watcher historians who mistook those women for two other Immortal women hailing from middle eastern countries. Barraza is really Policarpa Salavarrieta, a former sharphooter for Colombia's FARC and Flor was really Aurea Figo, the consort and bodyguard of Colombian drug lord Escobar Gallego. Those two women were never close and didn't even know each other. Policarpa deosn't even play the Game, while Aurea did, using the same hunting techniques as Peter Kanis as Appius Lepidus Baro found out when he came after Gallego, seeking to purge Bogota from one of its most nocive elements. It wasn't enough that he burnt down Gallego's pavot field, that he slaughtered his bodyguards and put an end o theactivities of the corrupt officials supporting him. He had to finish the job by taking his head. However, he faced Aurea and Gallego fled the scene while the woman he used for companionship faced my student on her own.
                                                    Appius never had the opportunity to "finish" Gallego, Maude de Valerie else did the job for him two decades later.

                                                    Well, that was professional updating. No witty banter that time.
