    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.

      • Zabibah of Qedar
        Known aliases : Dahiah al-Kahina, not to be
        confused with Kahina Princess Berber, also
        Immortal
        Notable characteristics : None
        Weapon : Not carrying one
        Recorded kills : None known

        Status
        Most recent base of operations : Present Tunisia
        Occupation : Prophetess, soothsayer, pretending
        to be Kahina, Berber Queen
        Prior occupations : Quedarite queen
        Roster of Immortals Status : Missing
        Date : 750
        Place : Tunisia
        Victor : N.A
        Watcher : Research, Ancient Immortals

        Background
        Original cultural affiliation : Qedarite
        Born : 753 BC; Qedar Kingdom, Arab tribal
        confederation, present Persian Gulf
        First death : 733 BC; Queen of Qedar killed
        leading rebellion against Neo-Assyrian Empire
        First teacher : Undetermined
        Known past associates : Selim Ubadah
        First recorded sighting : 650 Present Tunisia
        Married Selim Ubadah, a hardened warrior whop
        fell under her charm

        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
        THE END COMING... guess who that head of state is, dear reader !

        Born : 7th century BC; Persia, Iranian Plateau
        First death : Unrecorded

        Known ennemies : Cleophon of Athens
        First recorded sighting : 559 BC. Babylonia,
        Achaemenid Empire. Encounter with Cleophon of
        Athens, relatively impressed by Pantea’s
        immortals troops

        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.

        First recorded sighting : 220. Kingdom of Jordania
        Raped by Ahaziah of Ramoth-Gilead, fought him
        off, interrupted by mortal witnesses

        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.

        Background

        First recorded sighting : 460 Punjab. Enocunter
        with Katherine of Samothrace, searching for his
        teacher, the legendary Methos, « god of death »

        After my nemesis, after my blood-brother, a third Immortal has been hunting me ceaselessly : my greatest fan.Originally a young boy from the Panchala kingdom of India, Natrajan was dedicated to the cult of Yama the Lord ofDeath and followed the teachings of a "wise old man" named Dhaumaya (guess who ?) who taught him a mix of oriental philosophies so complicated that not even Wikipedia can precisely give a clear definition of it (I challenge yout, go look for it!). Poor kid had a terrible shock when he resurrected and thought Yama had left him on Earth to do his work, so he started preaching and preaching and it isn't what I taught him that could 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.

        First recorded sighting : 220. Southern Vietnam
        Encounter with Jin Ke and his disciple, Xuan

        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.

          Background
          Original cultural affiliation : Ammonite
          Born : 4th century BC; Kingdom of Ammon,

          First recorded sighting : 339 BC Ammon Kingdom
          Found and mentored by Issam of Awsan

          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 death : Undetermined

          Known associates : Zai Jie
          First recorded sighting : 1884 Yayoi District of
          Tokyo. Found in a tomb with embelished pottery
          by Zai Jie during diggings

          In 1884, Zai Jie invited me to diggings in Japan, swearing we'd find treasures, I retorted I wasn't interested in a thousand years old garage inventory. But well, I needed the distraction and it beat fighting off old Samurai or getting involved with murderous geishas (look into Japan chronicles for a good read !). Note : William Adams wasn't me, just an European lost in translation and made the most of the geishas while he could and lost the head competely to one of the local Immortal women. Speaking of the local, I had a good suprise with Zai Jie : Ayako Kitoagi, one of the most beautiful women to grace Japan alive and healthy after a 15,000 years sleep. The poor woman though she had gone to heaven (or hell) and was suprosed to discover she was going to live again and pull through with no small help from smitten Zai Jie and modest old me, Methos the charmer.
          It took time and training but Kitoagi did very well, though she'd rather hide and busy herself with her little business in Yayoi, she write that it reminds her of her youth. She doesn't want to pick fights, but comes the time of the Gathering, she will have to make her choice : kill or be killed. Personaklly, I wish she'd train in earnest after all the trouble Zai and I went though to educated her in the customs of the 19th century.

          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.

            Background
            Original cultural affiliation : Israelite
            Born : 7th century BC Kingdom of Judah,
            Southern Israel
            First death : Undetermined
            First teacher : Elishevah of Samaria
            Known past associates : The Seven Prophetesses
            of Ancient Israel, Elishevah of Samaria
            Known ennemies : General Holophernes
            First recorded sighting : 597 BC. Kingdom of Israel
            Challenged and beheaded General Holophernes
            during siege of Bethulia, the ensuing Quikcening
            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.

            Encounter with Yarhuata Pachaco, entrusted him
            with her favorite cacao recipes

            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.

              Victor : Appius Lepidus Baro
              Watcher : Research, Baro Chronicles

              Background
              Original cultural affiliation : Cambodian
              Born : 1408; Angkor, Cambodia
              First death : 1431; Durign capture of Cambodian
              capital city by Thais, raped and murdered
              First teacher : Xuan, posing as a Cambodian

              Known past associates : Xuan
              Known ennemies : Appius Lepidus Baro, Xuan
              First recorded sighting : 1550. Cambodia.
              Led King of Cambodia to jungle-covered ruins of
              Angkor with explorer Zai Jie

              From now on I shall stop questionning why I always in the middle of stories of women who have been aped, abused or enslaved and accept it as penance for the crimes I comitted against womenfolk during the Bronze Age.Xuan was Mei Mian's mentor in 1431 but I was Xuan's consort in those days and I personally trained the Cambodian girl in efficientways to defend herself against men's agressivity and my lessons bore good fruits : she lived until the days of Cambodia's occupation by the French when she turned into a bitter nationalist.
              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.

              Ah, I don't know if I already wrote that down but: why are the white race's best champions always its worst representants ? I mean, look at the Nazis : Hitler had one testicle, Goebbels was a dwarf with a limp, the SS... half of them were certified closet homos. They were foul rascists, hated everyone and each others. Rykaard Graaf hated the negros, the communists, the Jews, was a mysogynist and couldn't stand those who didn't abide by this single credo : the white are superior before the eyes of the lord. He was coarse, mean-spirited, selfish and a disgrace to the Immortal world. Even Caspian looked down on him (they briefly met in Zantibar, 1964)... Yes, Caspian ! Appius Lepidus tainted
              himself with Graaf's Quickening after a quarrel about black people in Apartheid-dominated South Africa, Graaf not understanding how an Immortal who seved the greatest Empire of Europe could not side with him. Unfortunately for him, Appius had changed in the last centuries and couldn't abide by Graaf's kind. He still can't.
              As he told me himself, "I cleaned up Johannesburg's household from a huge vermin".

              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.

              • Really great job, my friend! Loved reading these chronicles, especially as written by Methos himself. Lots of snide comments, witticisms and insights into the activities of the ancient Immortals through the eyes of someone who knew them.

                I supply the names and origins, you come up with these wonderful stories!

                Love it.

I fought and killed the Iommortal Koh Mingyu whowanted to obtain the book and keep it to himself, to use the teachings of Sun Tzu so he could conquer mainland China with his armies. Sun Tzu didn’t agree and since he couldn’t fight, I was the one in charge of ridding the world from this menace. Not that it would do the world any good thereafter, since the book’s publication it has been used countless of times in warfare and Sun Tzu may well be responsible for for the armies marching on countries, having followed the teachings
                      of the former Horseman of War, me.

                      Well, that was bound to happen. Here is a moment of my past as co-leader of the Four Horsemen fo the Apocalypse.We rode for hundreds of years together, all it took was a woman to take us apart (looking at you Cassandra!) In 1700 BC India was known as the Hindus Valley and was ruled by Lord Rama the Immortal and his wife Sita, a mortal woman of great beauty. Kronos challenged Lord Rama and took his head, spreading a legend among the Hindus about a demon who killed their king, raped their queen and magically created a demonic woman Ajatashatra, a four armed killer with ugly features who became the chaos-bringer, the giver of death, Mother Kali. There is a lot to be found about
                      us, in the Bible, in Hindu myth but what is true is Kronos killed Rama, I raped Sita and Kronos and I became the teachers of the woman better known as Mother Kali. We were the Four Horsemen, we were death, war, pestilence and famine and our legacy was carried out by our disciples, all Immortals.

                      final battle of Lee An-Kor agaisnt an Egyptian
                      Immortal identified as Memnet-Ra

                      In a moment of lucidity Yau Chouan Chou once told me how he defeated a Gojoseon Immortal in single combat in 108 BC and the Quickening of Yi was so powerful, the immortal so ancient and so cruel that it drove him insane. He asked me how I would feel if I was driven over the edge : would I kill a friend ? Kill a lover ? I didn’t want to kill my friend and to have to deal with a Dark Quickening, so I took him to Shaman Thai Anh Tam of Vietnam whom I already wrote about, in an early chronicle. She was rumored to be so powerful and wise that she could rid an Immortal from his demons and she just did with Yi, locking him in a cave, on a sacred place near present Khe Sanh. Yi fought himself for one night
                      and one day, while I had conversation with Tahi. Thai guessed what I was in an instant, but she agreed to help me because she felt even an avil, curle, merciless man like I was could be redeemed. She never met Kronos then. Yi got out of his cave, cured, a sane man. And I got myself a litle better from my encounter with the Shaman.

                      Ashur-dan the Assyrian, the aptly named, since he believed he was a God and a supersticious Immortal, collecting the heads of his ennemies he kept in bags he carried everywhere with him. He was called the collector by his friends and the giver of head by his ennemies, because he offered some of them as presents.Ah, I knew him well, he got me captured and tortured because he thought I was coming after him, fortunately for me I bribed his corruptible headman (pun intended) and vamoosed. That was two or three hundred years before he fell to the sword with his name on it. It may have been the Kurgan who got to him, or Kronos, I don’t really know.

                      Officer in Assyrian company of female archers,
                      dug up from grave by Ashur-Dan, mistaking him
                      for a Kassite war god, Marutta

                      Innana of Kish escaped the madness of Ashur-dan, her husband, in the same fashion Cassandra escaped Horsemen camp circa 1400 BC. Both women were taken as slaves, killed, then reborn Immortals to fall in the clutches of evil Immortals in the 14th century BC. Ashur-dan was evil, a cruel husband who became mad over the centuries and when finally he was killed by the Kurgan in 609 BC (unless it was Kronos in a twist of irony), she didn’t need to run from him anymore, freed at last. But that wasn’t for long as Araxis the Med challenged her to a fight and took herhead by the time of the conquest of the Median kingdom by Cyrus the Great, my student.
                      I remember the fight and how Innana begged for her life, having enjoyed her freedom only too briefly by mortals standards. But Araxis despised the woman who hid under male cloth, even though they were on the same side.Retrospectively, I could have chosen to interfere, saving her life, but my duties to King Cyrus took precedence. Another regret out of thousands.

                      though a bit delusional about Immortal
                      motherhood

                      Of course the tall tale of a pre-immortal woman dying in childbirth is apocryphal but this story is the one of Ang Chwun-hwa who was the concubine of Emperor Zhou in 1030 BC and had promised him an heir. She faked her pregnancy and presented him with a foundling she and I (as her physician) passed as legitimate heir. Ang had been poisoned by a jealous rival and was dying from slow poisoning, so we cooked a tale in which she died after giving birth to her child and once she was “buried” (an empty coffin) we both exited China for India where we lived for a few years.
                      She decided she xould help women go through labor so she would never see the horror of bothced childbirths and dedicated her immortality preparign herbal remedies for pregnant women, wether to ease the pains of pregnancy and childbirth or to terminate one. Ang’s teachings have reached medieval times when herbalist Grace Chandel discovered her teachings in a monastery of eastern China; the manuscript was hidden in an ancient monastery.
                      In 106 BC she became acqauinted to Immortal Jin Ke who was ready to take her head, but laid his sword down when this amazing woman helped Jin’s mortal wife through labor and saved the woman’s life. Jin Ke was so elated with the birth of his two sons that he spared Ang’s life.

                      Shekinah of Hebron was formally identified as an Immortal by Watchers one yer before Judith of Bethulia took out the Quickening that made her famous. Since both women were ennemies of King Nabuchodonezzer there is a valid possibility that Shekinah is the woman who helped Judith kill General Holofernes, and not Elishevah as I previously wrote in my journals. Anwyway, Shekinah had formidable weapons and by that I do not mean her sword, but also the sexual power which she held over men, making them obey her every whem and when she married ancient Hebrew Gideon, it wasn’t out of love, rather an arrangement to face common ennemies and life in the Game as a deadly force
                      to be reckoned with. She would never acknowledge it to my face, but this is a woman who did love her Gideon and Gideon loved her. When Lucius Oranius Capito killed Shekinah, his world fell apart and he was never the same man over the centuries.

                        Issam of Awsam wasn’t just the King of Haram’s favorite she also protected the Harem’s other women and cared about the women’s children as if their were her own. When they were cold, she sew them cloth, when they were hungry she fed them, when they were unclean she cleaned them up; when the girls grew up she taught them to be proper women, when the boys grew up she taught them to behave with women. She had a fierce independent streak eher enamoured King came to respect. Oh, she had many rivals and she knew she could never truly be free but she felt it was her duty to stand watch, to observe and record the lives of her companion. A true Watcher in spirit. She was even invited to choose the eunuchs who stood guard before the harem’s doors.
                        A woman who could behave like that ! She must have had sexual charisma to burn ! A shame her charisma didn’t work on Ari al-Muzaiyin who was a general fo the arab armies that invaded the Kingdom of Haram, raped and looted their way across the king’s castle and had they way of the victors with the King’s woman. The women were raped and merclessly killed, the children and eunuchs put to the sword, and the nightly sky lit with the passing Quickening of one of the bravest women the Immortal scene was ever graced with.

                        aren’t sure)

                        I would like to make matters clear where the chronicle of Yau Chouan Chou is concerned: he wasn’t the mysoginist oen would pretend him to be, rather a man from his time who had a hard time beliving women could be the equals of women on the field of battle. And yet, he was always proven wrong with the likes of Mei-Li Choe or May-Ling She, his last known student. Mei-li was the mistress of kung-fu of the 5th century BC in China and she is the one who taught her art to Master Yau who later passed those skills on May-Ling Shen who herself gave a lesson in humility to the boorish Highlander called Duncan MacLeod.I knew Mei-li and believe me this woman was a kicker ! I even saw her best techniques used in combat by Golden Swallow in the Shaw Brothers productions. And oddly enough, the Godlen Swallow was herself azn Immortal. Life has

                        an odd way of moving in circles.

                        other disciple, Samira Hamid

                        Xanthia once told me about her lover Parthenia of Udyana during our reunion in Normandy in 950. There was her student, Amanda, a wild little hellion who was jealous of my relationship with her mistress. When I asked Xanthia if she and Amanda had an intimate relationship she answered they didn’t.That was a student/teacher relationship, akin to an older aunt and her niece. To which I retorted that “funny aunts” had existed since the dawn of mankind. Xanthia had a light laugh but swore she hadn’t been involved in any serious lesbian relationship since her days in the Punjab
                        by the 2nd century BC. At this time she reuntied with Samira, a former disciple, and she did the mistake of accepting her as lover. When she took a new student from the Indo-Grek kingdom, the three women became involved in a risqué ménage à trois which led slowly to jealousy from the insecure Parthenia. The relationship ended badly and Xanthia took an oath to never mix romance with her work as a teacher again. The last time she heard of Parhenia she was in the Punjab when the Indo-Greek kingdom dissolved itself.

                        How many Roman Immortals survived to present times, exactly ? Nine ? Ten ? More ? One of them is Marcus Octavius a sadistic killer with charisma to burn, giving him an apparence of niceness that belies a ferocity and a lack of principles that match his teacher, my brother Kronos. Ah Kronos, your legacy endures and I am afraid it will live out the Gatherin unless someone finally disposes of the old wolf. I bet on Alconen of Britain, Marcus’ age-old ennemy who always fought on the side of the angels while Marcus worked for conquerors history would damn : Nero, Genghis Khan, Hitler, Stalin. Nowadays he is a retired businessman and philanthropist in Rio with plans inside plans I cannot fathom. I am keeping an eye on my spiritual nephew but I suspect him to be part of the Zodiac Brotherhood once thought destroyed after the Immortals War five years ago. History taught me the Brotherhood is like the hydra of myth: severs ten heads, ten more will spurt out and I believe this ‘head’ has a lot of venorm to spit out upon us.

                          No worries, Gardner. Another great set of chronicles with interesting tales to tell.

                          And here are those two names you wanted:

                          2nd century BC

                          Melanie of Traxiane - Greco-Bactrian female

                          1st century BC

                          Hentempet - Ptolemaic female

                          Cheers
                          Apollo1

                          • Beautiful names Apollo, thanks! Although I already have an Egyptian, can I have a Sub-Saharan one instead ? I am still keeping the Hentempet name for future purposes (wink!) Glad you appreciate those stories too, Bystander.

                              I remember Anunit of Mazaca, a woman I mentored upon her first death and whom I loved dearly until she left after two hundred years spent together. Her departure broke my heart, filling me with emptiness. Mortal women died quickly and if I couldn't spend my immortality with a fellow immortal then what was the point with living ? It is around that time that I met Kronos, Silas and Caspian who filled the vacuum in my life. We became blood-brothers and decided a combined power of four immortals had better chances of surviving life on Earth than one single Immortals. I must admit I admired
                              Kronos' raw power, his will, the strenght with which he ketp us united and how he needed le to plan his raids. I had a close relationship with Silas, but Caspian turned me off sometimes. Still, they filled me with a sense of belonging Ionly felt with my beautiful Anunit. Ah Anunit, why did you fear me so ? Did you fear my power, of the potential for evil you sensed in me ? Did you fear my darkness unless you didn't want to be infected my that darkness. You were right to fear me because me and my brothers became a force to be reckoned with and hell followed our wake.

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

                              Rome, encounter with Gideon

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

                              I remember racing against Irene at the time of the earthquake, I bet her fifty gold coins that I would win on the fourth and she agreed o it because she liked placing bets. To her, playing the Game already was placing a bet so she didn’t mind the gold coins. It’s not like a Quickening was going to be lost.
                              The crowd cheered as we ran around the colyseum and then the ground started moving, thousands of people screamed and I don’t remember quite clearly what happed, I know we ran for safety while everything started crumbling.
                              We must have been trampled in the stampede. I was dug up from a pile of rubbles, called miraculous because I survived unscathed. I looked after Irene but could find no trace of her. I am sure she survived the earthquake, at least I belive so because if she had lost her head, I would have received her Quickening and I would feel her presence in me. I she is out there somwhere, I hope we can resume our race. I wonder how many gold coins she would ask this time.

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

                              victim might turn to be Immortal like Cassandra did ?

                              I won against Parthos of Aram fair and square, he owned sixty gold coins but he wouldn’t pay up. No one likes a sore loser. He even accused me of cheating, pretending I gave drugged water to his horses, riight ! When he challenged me to a fight, he found how a Horseman can deal sore losers and tried to recoil from the fight, but I wasn’t in the mood to let this slide and I went for he kill. I don’t regret not having spared his head, this was an Immortal with a solid reputation as a player of the Game who knew what he risked when he challenged others of his kind, and if I hadn’t taken his head, it would have been some other Immortal to be sure.

                              • Another great set of chronicles, my friend. More interesting tales of these ancient Immortals, although do you have the death date for Parthos of Aram. The stats say he went missing in 732 BC, but Methos states he took his head after a chariot race. Thanks.

                                And here's that name correction you wanted for the 1st century BC:

                                Karimala of the Blemmyes - female

                                  immortal but clearly not as the actual Cleopatra



                                  The immortal pretending to Cleopatra was actually Cleopatra's handmaiden, she was mentored by Nefertiri when she poisoned herself after her mistress' suicide and briefly stayed on the immortal scene before disappearing by the time of the birth of Christ. She was never heard from again and was to be an urban legend, likely to be anotheirdentity of Nefertiri herself. Until she challenged Sit-Hathro Iunet in the Valley of the Kings in 1943, claming to be Cleopatra, back from the dead to reign upon Egypt and restore it to power.
                                  Sit-Hathor was old enough to have known the actual Cleopatra and knew the woman was delluded; she tried to help but couldn't do much until she finally travelled with her to England where she entrusted her to the care of Doctor Burns. The fact that she claimed Mement-Ra was his master clue us in the brainwashing she must have received from the ancient wizard and from Nefertiri.

                                  - Abel Attwood, already mentally unstable, could permamently settle for the personality of the lethal Cain Attwood and thus become a formidfable weapon for Kell.
                                  - Charmian could become Kell's new concubine and be entranced into playing hte Game on his behalf.
                                  - Berg Doepker, a fragile being prompt to violent anger could become a dangerous killer in the hands of Kell.
                                  - Ugolin Ferrant, even as foolish as he is, can become a savy player if led by Kell.

                                  Sylvia Krause' theories were proven correct on the field of battle when the group took on Inek Procjnow, a former Hussar who proved his worth during the Immortals War of 2012. Abel/Cain Attwood and Ugolin Ferrant completely landed the hussar on his knees, as did Charmian and Berg Doepker. Jacob Kell had little effort in giving Inek the coup de grâce.

                                  We supposed Jacob Kell and his surviving followers would target Liam Riley, a lifelong ennemy of Kell but this time, the surviving immortals of Ireland stood ready : coming from other part of the island came Seamus of Athlone, Etain of the Second Look and her student, youngish Paddy Bell whom no one would give a decade in the Game. Remember Boyer ? Never underestimate a computer geek. Combined with the might of Lang Quing, China's Little Dragon, Kell's group didn't stand a chance. Etain of the Second Look's powers allow her to anticipate an opponent's moves during a fight, Paddy learnt all the tricks of the sword with mortal teachers and Internet, Seamus of Athlone found his fire back and Lang Quing, no surprise, was the one to take on Jacob Kell.

                                  Reporting the death of Piers Jacobs by the furious blade of Annie Devlin in Belfest the same day that will go down in history as Bloody Sunday as our troops tried to tame those Irish rebels. Helen Bondeville and Allegra Chambers will no doubt mourn the passing of their colleague of the SIS as well as a great friend and occasional lover. He was a serious man with an agenda but never forgot that to survive as an Immortal you need to live your life fully. He put as much care in his preparations for his missions as he put in forging alliances with other Immortals or bonds with the SIS group. And as far as the Game was concerned, he took it seriously and trained constantly, his fatal flaw being he expected the same fair-play from his opponents as he had when his sword was in his hand. Unfortunately, Annie Devlin isn’t fair-play : she used her trick of the sword to defeat Piers and took him out in mere minutes while Jabs’ men shot 28 innocent civlians, to our collective shame as British citizens.

                                  It always amazes me that the female immortals not only survive but become extremely good players in the Game. Edwina surprises me more than most. Raised as a gentle lady the sharpest thing she ever carried was a needle. And she was quite proficient with it. The Mercian Tapestry that now hangs in the Paris Watchers Headquarters is one of the finest examples of earlier 7th century needle work. And if the chronicles are accurate also designed by Edwina herself. But after her First Death everything changed as it does with all immortals. Thrust into a new world where she would need to fend for herself Edwina took to the sword with the same tenacity that she brought to her other endeavors. She was also lucky enough to find and excellent teacher in Alex Raven who taught her not only to use the sword but about immortality and how to live in a world that was hostile to women.

                                  In return for having been tutored so well by Alex Raven, Edwina of Mercer decided to dedicated her immortality to searching and mentoring young, impressionable immortals who had been killed and been reborn in the cruel world of the Game. She scoured most of Western Europe in search of new immortals or pre-immortals so that she could teach them how to be proper men and women in the world of immortals.
                                  Her students have become intelligent and strong people, players of the Game only when confronted by challengers. Most of them still live to this day and are the proof of how a dedicated teacher can influence the world of immortality in a positive manner. Every year, they gathered around their teacher and celebrate her anniversary, remembering the old days when they were heroes.

                                  In 1941, the war in Southeast Asia erupted, marking the involvement of Japan and of the USA in the Second World War. Dozens of immortals on both sides were involved - most notably the BMR, the SIS, Xanthia of Melitus, Deoneces and Kyra of Sparta, the MacLeods. Standing among them was Edwina, war nurse serving in the US army, stationed in the Philipines during the takeover of the archiplago by Japan.
                                  Matsuhiro Kanagawa was in charge of the fightings this side of the war, and when his men threatened the wounded GI's in Manila, Lydia offered Kanagawa her life if he would withdraw his troops from the Philipines.
                                  Matsuhiro Kanagawa agreed to the deal, he took Lydia's head after a brief fight, let General MacArthur's wounded men live and, the following year, kept his promise when Tokyo gave their independance to the Philipinos.

                                  Notes from Wikipedia:
                                  Lydia Stahl (1890-?) was a secret agent who worked for Soviet Military Intelligence (GRU) in New York and Paris. She was born Lydia Chkalov in Rostov, in the south of Russia, in 1890. Once the wife of a Tsarist officer, she later married Baron Stahl, a Baltic nobleman, and emigrated to the United States where she became a naturalized citizen. When her only son died in 1918, the lonely and grief-stricken Lydia returned to Europe. She befriended the Finnish writer Hella Wuolijoki and was a regular visitor to her estate Marleback in Southern Finland, which was a meeting place for leftist intellectuals and politicians. Through her relationship with Otto Kuusinen, she met the American radical John Reed, and maintained a correspondence with him until his death in 1920. She joined the Soviet secret service while a refugee in Finland in 1921.
                                  During the 1920s, Lydia established a photography studio in Paris where she copied secret documents for Soviet Military Intelligence. In the spring of 1928 she was transferred to New York to help the GRU resident Alfred Tilton. She remained in New York until 1933, when she returned to Paris to work for the apparatus which included Robert Gordon Switz. Lydia's ami was the French professor Louis Pierre Martin, former attache of the Naval Ministry and member of the Legion of Honor.
                                  In 1933 counterespionage uncovered an apparatus in Finland which included Tilton's wife Maria, Lydia's friend Ingrid Bostrom, and Arvid Jacobson. He provided information which led French counterintelligence to Lydia. She was arrested in December 1933 and other members of the apparatus, including Switz and his wife, were arrested shortly afterward. Lydia was convicted of espionage in April 1935 and served a four-year sentence. She disappeared after her release from French prison.

                                      There is the legend in Eastern Africa about Fire from the Sky, a dark-faced woman of amazing powers who killed an African prince around 400 AD, triggering an earthquake and the biggest lighting inferno to grace the land of Kenya. The woman put such an impression on the Kenyans that they called her Fire from the Sky, the witch who rose from the dead and killed the Prince who put him to death, taking his head and drinking his essence. This folktale clearly describes an immortal, a challenge and a Quickening.
                                      Fire from the Sky is recorded as having raised a tribe of twelve children - who started wandering Eastern Africa upon reaching adulthood and all died in wars, all of them bearing the name "Kenyatta" and rising from the dead. We do not know what happened of them. Fire from the Sky raised those children after marrying a local prince, himself an immortal and is said to have kept him aprt from the education of her childen, never letting him approach her daughters. She fought often, led her tribe in war and battles, and often illuminated the Kenyan sky with ligtnings. She is written to have lived six generations before burying her husband and disappearing with her children, thus marking the time of her diseappearance around 520 AD when she fought a battle against the legendary Sekou Nkruma, the warrior who turned into a doctor. Sekou lives to this day, we presume she won the battle, being such a formidable warrior and allowed him to live.

                                        Question, regarding SIS (thy creation) : why give the role of Allegra Chambers to an Indian actress ?
                                        She was born in Canterbury in 1650, she would have been of British blood, not of Indian ancestry imo.






                                        To be honest, my friend, Indira Varma was my choice at the time as i liked her in Torchwood, where she didn't play an Indian character. Since then, i would replace her with another, more appropriate, actress: Jenna Coleman.

                                        I'll get those names for you ASAP

                                        Cheers

                                          Good choice! I think she is very beautiful. I used Indira Varma for a teacher from India, Chandra Kapoor.

                                          Keith Douglas came to Chandra's home in search for knowledge, for the origin of the Game and of immortality. So far he received different views of immortality but sought advice from an Hindu; he was tipped by Ahasuerus on the possibility to learn more from Chandra Kapoor before he took the Wandering Jew's head and thus boarded a plane for India. Madras gave him the answers he sought in the presence of Professor Kapoor who lectures he attended, posing as a foreign student on an exchange student program between America and India. Kapoor was interested by the presence of a foreign immortal in Madras and develloped a friendship with the polite, knowledge-hungry boy.
                                          Chandra explained to Douglas that Hindi immortals belived that pre-immortals upon First Death didn't reach the multi-layered paradise of Hindu religion : they became the living dead who walked the earth, killing each others and the last one, the last immortal standing would accumulate all the life-energies of the death immortals and be joined with Buddha, thus becoming the chosen one. There can be ony One immortal to unite with Buddha. Keith Douglas lauded this vision of immortality and spent one entire year folowing the tutelage of Hindi masters before finally uniting Chandra's Quickening with his, promising his fallen teacher that one day his sould would be with Buddha.

                                        • Very interesting list of names again, Apollo, thank you.
                                          Here is to keep you waiting, while I find more stories to tell...

                                          The Redeemers
                                          Estrela Acosto, Gabriel Calvino, Joe Fujita, Moses Johnson, Alice Chase
                                          Most recent base of operations: Washington DC
                                          Occupation: Charter member, the Redeemers

                                          The remnants of the Combined Immortals of America are back in the game, so to speak, trying to help America back on the right tracks as Donald Trump is taking our country to the abyss. They have been on the four conrers of the American territory since Trump got elected, fighting neo-Nazis who triggered recent riots in South Carolina, helping survivors of the hurricane in Miami, gathering political strenghts in Washington CD in the hope to demote Trump from his functions and woundering is they wouldn't simply hire an Immortal assassin to sanction Trump as they foolishly did in 1963 with President Kennedy. They are everywhere, wokring with civilians, trying ti curb racial tension, trying ot help the poor and disinfranchised. But isn't it too late for America ? The CIA did all the damage they could to thei homeland underr the lead of Tobias Berrick; the self-annointed Redeemers of America try theri best but theri hopes are vain because the future looks very grim.

                                          • Nice idea with the Redeemers, my friend. I completely endorse the change you made to the CIA, since the original idea was that Merrick was the driving force behind their activities and the others were driven by patriotism and were susceptible to his twisted ideology.

                                            BTW I've started updating my Immortals now as i'm transferring them to my PC again, and i'd like to incorporate the updates you've made in the intervening period. I'm starting with the currently active and inactive Immortals. I'm not going to ask you to post all 463 of them at the same time! Lol

                                            I intend to do it in sections a week at a time;

                                            For this week could you post the full chronicles for the active and inactive Immortals of Central Africa, except for Kun Hou. Thanks in advance.

                                              First recorded sighting : 1202. Trieste, Germany
                                              Found and killed by Horst & Hugo Hauser who
                                              killed her in a 'gesture of mercy‘; managed to shoot
                                              Horst down before Hugo killed her

                                              The woman was an ugly sight : misshapen, walking with a limp, unable to carry a sword (I don't think she even owned one) but still good with the crossbow according to her chronicle, ugly as sin, but still with a quick mind and witty tongue. She also had the sharpest needles in Trieste with which she helped 'women in need of solutions'. Smart enough to never get noticed. Until the day of February 1202 when she was noticed by the Hauser brothers, two sharks prawning for prey. The sibling killers first mocked her and then offered to kill her in a 'gesture of mercy' (they said). Milena gave them a stern send-off,succesfully shooting Hugo Hauser down but the killers wouldn't listen. If Hugo was the one who took Milena's head, the killing was a combined gesture has those two share a link that goes beyond fraternal relationship.

                                                I have been watching Ivane Kazbegi since we landed foot in CAR and I can say this is not a pedophile preying on little children. Ivane is a good man who saw countless horrors and had to fend for himself in the Game, getting all the help he could find to perfect his swords skills. He may be serious about the Game but this is a man who is also serious about keeping peace in war-torn countries and who would never hurt a child. And while some of those kids did offer him sex in return for his kindness, he never lowered himself to accepting those favors. I have never sen him doing any thing suspect to the children there, he gives them food and water, helps them write English or Georgian poems but that is all. He is dedicated to his mission and his on the look out for any Immortal in the area. A very caring man… or careful man.

                                                Estelle Malembo and her group, the Congorillas, have been dishing out justice on the countless women and girls who were raped during the war in the Congo, hunting and killign soldiers perpetrating those heinous acts. They are like demons, appearing, killing and then disappearing in a puff of smoke. No one knows were they come from, in likelihood from the four corners of the continent, unless Estelle recruited her girls solely in Congo.

                                                Abortion in South Africa was legal for very limited reasons until 1997, when the Choice on Termination of Pregnancy Act (Act 92 of 1996) was passed, providing abortion on demand for a variety of cases. It allowed Roxane Bangura to switch her unsafe position as back-alley abortionist for a respectable position of medical doctor with needed credentials in Johannesburg Gen. Hospital where she has been helping women vicims of rape and incest who became pregnant, not mentioning the numerous teenage girls coming in her office.

                                                The colour of Roxanne Bangura’s skin isn’t what defines her as an immortal, even though her African heritage helps define her background, past history and personality. What defines her is the colour that predominate in her heart : a strong, warm yellow that benefits the five young children in her charge, five war-orphans she took under her wing and who turned her into a much better person now that she has people to care about, to feed, dress and educate. She provides shelter for them and even though she had to sell her body to survive in Kinshasa in the 19th century, being a prostitute isn’t what defined her. It is her inner strenght and the love she has for her children. Strong enough that when Immortals come to her looking for an easy kill, she knows how to face them : with bared teen and a drewn Tulwar saber. She bagged five immortals in the last thirteen years we have been observing her. We needn’t worry about her because she has some quite formidable weapons.

                                                It never stops, more and more women, girls and infant girls are coming to Jabari Kadewale for repairs, their genitalia mutilated, their minds destroyed by the horrors of gang rapes, dozens, hudnreds of htem. Japari is a strong man but there is a rupture point in any immortals and I am afraid the day will come when finally Jabari doesn’t just repairs women, he pîcks up his sword and start dishing out justice of the men responsible for raping, torturing and mutilatign those innocent women. Once a warrior in the middel of the 20th century, Japari became a doctor udner the guidance of Darius and Grace Chandel and laied down his sword,swearign to nafver take a life again. I do hope the horrors he vews ever day do not infect his mind and taint the good doctor he became over the last six decades.

                                                If the rate of teen prostitution is rising in Cameroon today it is because of Ibrahim Kiesso, who for four centuries and a half has been specilaizing in the trade of human flesh. First trading slaves in the 17th and 18th century, then working In the brotels of Southeast Asia during the 1950’s, of Latin America in the 1970’s and then back to his homeland for the past decade. He managed to survvie the Immortals War and it is a shame so many good immortals persihed, when he still lives.

                                                Rebels invaded the Augustien Sisters convent, burnt it to the ground and raped all the nuns there, including Beatriz Kimpa Vita and myself. We were lucky to stay alive after this. After enduring this ordeal, Beatriz remembered the lessons of her teacher, Cassandra, picked a sword and came after the offenders, tracking them down to their lair and one by one, butchered them all. Beatriz may be a saint, but this is a three centuries old immortal hiding a lioness beneath her cloth.

                                                Trying to stem the tide of the disaster is like trying to empty the ocean with a teaspoon. Every day we see more and more cases of the AIDS virus. By the time the patients realize that they have the disease it is too late to do anything more than just hold there hands and wait for them to die. That is why Sekou has gone to the city to try to help the government come up with some plan to try to educate and identify people with HIV. One of the centerpieces of the plan is to build more clinics and schools and is helping to fund this project out of his own pocket. It will do nothing for the poor souls already infected but it could save the lives of thousands in the years to come.
