  • I really like this new iteration of the Hellfire Club, a bunch of hedonistic Immortals more interested in wealth and power than being truly evil. And the SIS need an antagonist, a thorn in the side to keep them on their toes! Another great job, my friend.

    Could you post the chronicles for the active and inactive Immortals of North Africa, please.

    Cheers

    • Glad you liked them. Okay for the north African immies!
      For another project I need six Persian names from the 7th century, from the Hyrcanian region of modern Iran. Three females, three males.

      Also, can you pull up the chronicle of Ayashe and a central african Immortal named Khonvum, please ?

      Thanks in advance.
      (To think it just took five modern English names to trigger my inspiration for the Heffire Club...)

        Okay, my friend. I think I've got Ayashe in my old lists, but i don't think i had Khonvum. I'll see what i can do and let you know.

        In the meantime, I've got those Persian names for you from the 7th century, although i had to spread them out across Persia rather than just Hyrcania, there just weren't enough locations to believably have them come from. Is that okay?

        Diaexis of Bactra - male
        Tharybdis of Ardistan - male
        Histaeus of Qumis - male
        Artysbone of Peshawar - female
        Hutaosa of Hulwan - female
        Parmys of Turan

        Hope these help!

            Safiyah Khan envisons her immortality as a gift from Allah, a mission to clease the world of the "living dead", those gifted with life but who died and should have stayed dead. Her sword, she claims, is a gift from a sainted man who found her in the desert after her First Death, a man who taught her of the Game and that her life belonged to Allah, and that by living and playing the Game she was doing her will. That man was Farid al'Zafir ibn Muhunnad, a collector of swords and religious art who thought himself guided by Allah.
            With her holy sword, Safiyah Khan took the lives of many immortals, travelling the world, from the Middle East to South-East Asia and for the past hundred years concentrating her efforts on South American territory.

            To be added to the Chronicles of Safiyah Khan and Ya Nefer Ma’at

            In Mumbai, Ya Nefer Ma'at was fighting Safiyah Khan. The battle between the two women was epic, the Indian Muslim against the Egyptian from Alexandria, the lover of immortal life against the God-driven fanatic. The battle proved to be Inconclusive as both immortals were of equal strenght, in the end the two fighters were both so exhausted that they called for a truce and decided to choose the following evening to finish their battle. Both women are liked in the Watcher community - Safiyah may be a remorseless killer, but she has class, a vision, she is practical and fair. This week we found out where she stands in the ongoing war.
            The following evening, exactly twelve hours later, Khan and Ya Nefer Ma'at met again. Ya had been documented about Safiyah Khan and knew that this was no ordinary killer she was facing : a player of the Game who believed Allah gave her a purpose in life. Being Egyptian herself, Ya understood the fascination the ancient Egyptian gods could have on mortals and immortals : Horus the hawk-god, Anubis keeper of the dead, Osiris whose chief-priest Raan had been her teacher.
            Ya tried to explain to Safiyah that whatever Memnet-Ra promised to her, he could never deliver : the ancient gods were long dead and forgotten, they could have no hold on anyone anymore. Allah's message to the Prophet Mohammet was a message of peace, neither of war, nor of hatred. What hold could he posibly have on her, she questioned.
            Safiyah honestly answered : she ddn't care about the so-called Adversary, and felt she was above wars ruled by immortals with dellusions of grandeur. She fought in the name of Allah, and only to Allh would she give her life for he gave a purpose to the empty life she was living. She was going to take the head of Ya in His name, not for the sake of the war. Again the two women fought. This time, Ya Nefer Ma'at knew she had a death sentence on her head : if she lost the fight, Safiyah would show no mercy for she was too far gone. Safiyah's ferocity and speed knew no bounds : she had opened her heart in a moment of weakness, and she could afford no weakness.
            With anger, precision and skill she landed the Egyptian woman on her knees and before Ya could say one word... the sword fell down. Ya Nefer Ma'at was dead, but Memnet-Ra's forces didn't score another victory. Safiyah Khan is a wild card through and through. But to Safiyah, the victory was hollow. After disposing of the body, Safiyah went to a shrine and was last seen in prayers, her Watcher lost her in the crowd of Mumbai

              Halis is a tuareg living in Western Sahara, living off as tour guide for occidental tourists looking for new sensation in the immensity of the desert. Halis loves the place, the loneliness and the fact he is so much removed fromm the Game and its perils. It is a good life and, as the Arabs say, "the past flew away, the future is missing but the present is to be enjoyed". And Halis does. Everyday of his life.

              Update

              Traditions identify a variety of different names for the three wise Magi who presented Jesus Christ and his parents with presents at the time of his birth. In the Western Christian church they have been commonly known as :
              • Melchior, a Persian scholar, identified as the late Melchior of Babylon.
              • Caspar, an Ethiopian scholar, identified as Sunda Kastagir
              • Balthazar, an Arabian scholar, identified as Alis Ag Emoctar

              Encyclopædia Britannica states that "according to Western church tradition, Balthasar is often represented as a king of Arabia, Melchior as a king of Persia, and Gaspar as a king of India.“
              These names apparently derive from a Greek manuscript probably composed in Alexandria around 500, and which has been translated into Latin with the title Excerpta Latina Barbari.

              Qataban was one of the ancient Yemeni kingdoms which thrived in the Beihan valley (4th century BCE – 3rd century CE). Like the other Southern Arabian kingdoms, it gained great wealth from the trade of frankincense and myrrh incense, which were burned at altars. The capital of Qataban was named Timna and was located on the trade route which passed through the other kingdoms of Hadramaut, Saba and Ma'in; the immortal who became known as Balthazar was bon in the First Century before the birth of Christ and was mentored by Kellistra, at that time the wife of a merchant of frankincense. Nothing else is known of Kellistra's activites at that time, aside for her mentoring Balthazar who would later associate himself with Melchior of Babylon and Sunda Kastagir.

              Nura Al Habash of Sfax, Tunisia, rules her houselhold with an iron hand, even her husband obeys her every whim. No one dares to mock her or to contest her, because this is a fierce woman with an ancient darkness in her good eye, the other one long lost and replaced with a glass eye. For centuries she fought others of her kind and never let her bad eye turn into a weakness. She fought like a demon, she loved the men she married, cried over her chidlren when they died, buried hundreds of loved one but never let the wildness of the Immortal Game impact her soul in a negative way. It gave her the strenght she needed and with that strengh became a better, stronger person. If the Gathering – the true one, not that faux gathering of 2012 – ever comes, we all expect her to be among the last survivors, ready to put down any immortal foolish enough to come after he beautiful head.

              This day, I must close the Chronicle of my charge, the great poet Solomon ben Judah, who vanished two years ago in Damascus. For those past two years I have been relentlessly looking for him but to no avail. Solomon is missing, possibly killed facing one of the immortals living in Damascus circa 1851 : Farid al'Zafir, Iman Fasil, Isra of Algiers.
              Solomon was an outstanding poet and writer in medieval Spain and was fortunate enought tot be mentored in poetry by Achilles of Troy himself who latter taught him swordsmanship when he was murdered by a jealous rival. During eight hundred years, Solomon illuminated the Middle East and Renaissance-era Europe with his poetry, how fortunate the mortals were to know such a poet ! And what greatness he gave to the world !
              I live in the hope that Solomon didn't die against one of the Damascus immortals and that he is living peacefully somewhere away from the Game.

              Aaron bar Moshe, 1853

              Solomon has finally re-appeared in Cairo, alive and well; congratulations go to Ankhanaten Rey's Watcher who spotted him talking to his assignment. The meeting took place in Cairo's medina no challenge was issued and no battle took place. We may now re-integrate Solomon on the Actice roster of immortals.

              Manuscript C of the Tarikh al-fattash describes a community called the Bani Israeel that in 1402 CE existed in Tirdirma, possessed 333 wells, and had seven leaders, among whom immortal Malik bin-Ayoob, and that they had an army of 1500 men. For nearly six hundred years Malik livedon the African continent, never leaving the Western Coast, but travelling regularly to the Maghreb when he often reunited with Hazma el-Kahir with whom he made his peace and with Solomon ben Judah in Tunisia to whom he confirmed that the six other leaders fo Bani-Israel were Immortals and his brothers, in spirit if not in blood

              Tarif takes the Game liked a joke, especially since his teacher told him headhunters would come after him with big sword, and that with his left arm dead he wouldn't live out the decade. But Tarif doesn't care. All he wants is to live out until the age of ninety-nine like his grandfather, the most ancient of mortals in his tribe of Rushallah, and after this... it will have been a good life. So since he turned out 101 last January, Tarif, lives as an actor, moving from towns to towns, staying in relative obscurity and staying wary of strangers sending him "the buzz", the unmistakable presence of an immortal. When Sid'Ahmed Taya cornered him in Algers, Tarif tried to talk his way out of the confrontation as he usually did; the stage comedian was a success with an audience of mortals, even Sid'Ahmed laugh at his antics left the humorist in peace in a gesture of mercy.

                upon First Death

                For centuries, Garang of Sabwa and his group were a positive answer to the Eternal Swords of Allah in the world of immortality : seven immortals who dedicated their lives prserving the tradition of Islam against the invasive influence of the Western world they felt had become corrupt and threatened to engulf the Arab world. However, they didn't use terrorism and hate, rather diplomacy and trying to relive East African countries from his usual plagues : famine, disease, wars, drought, drugs. When the Swords of Allah finally confronted the ISLAm immortals in 1971, it was the start of their campaign of terror against mortal world and also against any immortal who they felt were a threat to their actions. What better way to start than take on Garang's group.
                The ISLAm immortals were well-trained with the sword, but they chose to spare Jamal and his group, trying to teach them the errorrs of their ways, that hate could never bring good things to mankind. How wrong they were and how they regretted having sparedd their misbegotten lives ! With the partition of Sudan they have been behaving differently, preparing the weapons of war agaisnt the ennemies of peace, includign the Janwaweed responsible of countless atrocities agaisnt civilians.

                  underground of Algiers

                  In 1990, ‘the Kabyle’ oppened a restaurant in the middle of Paris at the time of terrorist attacks triggered by the Eternal Swords of Allah. Fearing inquiry from mortal police and from Kyra and Deoneces of Sparta, on the warpath, the Kabyle immortal left Paris in a hurry and returned to Algeria where he has been staying for the past two decades. People are noticing he doesn’t seem to age, but they do not care; in this days and age, everyone goes under the knife to have their physique rejuvenated, so an immortal can afford being less angsty about moving out every decade. A behavior that had more than one immortal killed, but the Kabyle fears no man.

                  Kashta of Nubia, known in Immortal circles and by ourselves as the "Son of Sudala", appears to all intents and purposes to be a respectable and successful businessman. And Kashta has his fingers in many pies, owning a quarter of all the bars, nightclubs and restaurants in Cairo. He is not involved in crime and all his business dealings are legitimate, but the city's underworld do not mess with this giant of a man. He exerts an authoritative and calming influence on the various factions vying for control of the city's seedier suburbs , accepting that a certain amount of illegall activity must exist in order to cater for Cairo's poor. However, Kashta won't tolerate any crimelord or crime that steps over his moral line. How many rapists, pedophiles or people traffickers have been fished out of the Nile in recent years? The giant Nubian has eyes and ears everywhere and watches over our city like some giant guardian of morality and protector of its citizens, and his connections in the cooridors of power ensure that no investigation has ever targeted Kashta the Nubian and never will.

                  The Sudani International Hotel Complex has become a mecca for royalty and the glitterati and a jewel in the crown of Morocco's tourist trade. Most of the crowned heads of Europe and the Middle East, presidents, prime ministers, Hollywood film stars, and billionnaire business tycoons have made Zahra Sudani's six-star hotel among the top five holiday destinations in the world. I wonder how many of them know that the stunningly beautiful young woman, described by Vogue magazine as one of the youngest and most successful of a new generation of Arab businesswomen, is actually the 3000-year-old Immortal Sit-Hathor-Iunet. She is one the oldest living female Immortals and the last remnant of ancient Egypt with Ya Nefer Ma'at. She is also the only known student of Nefertiri still alive, but unlike her teacher who couldn't let go of the past, Sit-Hathor-Iunet has adapted down through the centuries, kept a low profile in the Immortal community, fighting only when she had to, hence her low head count, and changing with the passing of time.

                  She hasn't been idle in her three millenia on this earth, having had over 2000 lovers, 37 husbands, and her latest partner, one of the richest men in the Middle East, who is aware of her immortality and loves her still. They are Africa's very own Bradd Pitt and Angelina Jolie, but have managed to keep the paparazzi at a distance and scrutiny at a minimum thanks to Zahra's centuries of expertise in the matter.

                  War under religious leader Muhammad Ahmad

                  When looking at that old camel herder in Southern Egypt, one wouldn’t suspect wthis was a war commander in the 19th century and a firebrand in the Game, hiding his strenght and bravura beneath the façade of a frail old man. Quite a wonder. He must look like sixty, sicty-five and he fought like ten men. He nearly decapitated Simin Killian in 1885 after his men destroyed his battalion, for once scaring the British colonel.
                  Now he stays in shadows, which I call a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Comes the day of the Gathering, Jawad Mufir Asked will prove once again how looks are deceiving in the Game.

                  Identified as past disciple of Hamza el-Kahir

                  Zoraida has been hunting Xavier St. Cloud for centuries after the death of Hamza el-Kahir in 1656, this is a willful Immortal woman who wouldn’t leave the ghost of her teacher and mentor unavenged. In 1815 she nearly caught up to Xavier when he was in France with his student Morgan d’Estaing but only found Morgan to kill. She let him off the hook when she saw the pathertic specimen of immortality that he was - he certainly was no Xavier ! In 1992 she was in Paris, trailing the ancient Moor, but lot his trace when Duncan MacLeod severed his hand in combat and she lost him again. Finally in 1994, Xavier was killed by MacLeod and that meant MacLeod was possessed with the Quickening of Hamza and she wanted the memories of her lover very much. She confronted MacLeod and the Scotsman, who always had his way with women, introduced himself to Zoraida as a past disciple of Hamza himself and Zoraida didn’t have the heart to kill a line-brother, a disciple of her beloved.
                  MacLeod found solace in Zoraida, forgetting Tessa Noel for a time; and in the arms of MacLeod, Zoraida was briefly reunited with Hamza. Sometimes, there are love stories in the Game, not all onfrontations between Immortals end violently.

                        No problem, my friend. It's gonna be a long list so i'll post in instalments if that's okay, most likely in alphabetical order.

                          • I could post them in regions if you want, but it might take a while for me to sort them out, since all my original chronicles were copied onto paper and i'm still sorting through them all, although i did type out a complete alphabetical list of Immortals a few years back when i originally compiled the chronicles. I have four file folders of written chronicles! Lol

                            Let me know what you need; alphabetical will be quicker, regional might take a little while.

                                • Okay, Gardner, my friend, i'm afraid your idea for the Hellfire Club and an ongoing adversary for the SIS sparked a little bit of inspiration in me! Lol

                                  As such, I've kind of had the idea that the Hellfire Club wasn't an 18th century creation but one iteration of a pre-existing group who have been a thorn in the side of the SIS for centuries.
                                  For me, Aldrich Monk is more of an interesting character in his own right if he has some kind of connection to Richeard of Mercia; so, what if he and Richeard were both students of Timothy of Gilliam, blood brothers in a sense, but something happened that created a rift that led to a rivalry and the creation of two opposing shadowy groups?

                                  Here is my idea for the origin of the Hellfire Club and Aldrich Monk:

                                  The various iterations of the Club dating from the Middle Ages to the present day:

                                  BRIMSTONE BROTHERHOOD (the original Hellfire Club)
                                  FRATERNITATI FIERI
                                  IGNIS SCARI ("Fire Cult")
                                  BRIMSTONE LEAGUE
                                  BLACK FRIARS CLUB
                                  HELLFIRE CLUB (18th Century to early 20th century)
                                  INFERNUS CLAVA (early 20th century to 1999)
                                  BRIMSTONE (2000 - present)

                                  Aldrich Monk

                                  Known aliases (to be added to current stats): Ailef of Deira (birth name),
                                  Aldrich the Monk

                                  Born: 584, Kingdom of Deira, Northern England
                                  First death: 616, Killed in battle by the River Ide fighting
                                  for Raedwald of East Anglia, ally and protector of Edwin,
                                  soon-to-be-King of Deira
                                  First teacher: Timothy of Gilliam, at this time one of King
                                  Raedwald's personal guards

                                  635 - Timothy and Ailef are at the Battle of Hatfield Chase fighting with King Edwin of Deira in the army of
                                  Northumbria. Richeard of Mercia dies his first death and is mentored by Timothy. Ailef and Richeard
                                  become "brothers in blood and war".

                                  645 - Richeard and Ailef part company with their teacher and strike out on their own.
                                  710 - Richeard and Ailef help the Northumbrians repel a Pict invasion

                                  722 - Richeard and Ailef fight with King Ine of Wessex as he tries and fails to conquer Cornwall. Disillusioned,
                                  they leave the British Isles for northern Europe.

                                  732 - Richeard and Ailef are at the Battle of Tours near Poitiers, France, fighting with the Frankish army of
                                  Charles Martel against the Moors.

                                  740 - Richeard and Ailef fight with the Byzantines at the Battle of Akroinon in Anatolia against the Umayyad
                                  Arabs.

                                  772 to 795 - Richeard and Ailef fight for the Duchy of Saxony against the Carolingian Empire of Charlemagne.
                                  Realising the Saxons are facing defeat in a few short years and the futility of further bloodshed, Richeard and Ailef return to England.

                                  At this point, Richeard comes to realise he can use his immortality to fight for the survival and eventual prosperity of his people. Ailef disagrees, wanting to abandon futile causes and instead use his skills and immortality to gather power and wealth for himself, bitter at the neverending mortal obsession with land and status. After 150 years of brotherhood of wine and sword, Richeard of Mercia and Ailef of Deira part on bad terms.

                                  825 - Richeard is at the Battle of Ellandun as a commander in the army of Egbert of Wessex. He mentors Alfgar of Winchester who dies his first death in the battle. Alfgar, along with Richeard and Eadwulf, would go on to found the Secret Immortals Society.

                                  838 - Richeard and Alfgar help Egbert of Wessex defeat the combined Danish and Cornish armies at the Battle
                                  of Hingston Down in Cornwall. Ailef was there advising the Cornish as a mercenary. Furious at Richeard for finding another "blood brother" in Alfgar, they fight. Richeard defeats Ailef but spares his head in honour of their previous friendship. Ailef swears revenge.

                                  Inconclusive fight between Richeard of Mercia and Ailef of Deira, aka Aldrich Monk, 838

                                  840 - Ailef leaves England for Denmark and offers his services to the Norse king Horik I.

                                  844 - Richeard and Alfgar fight for Beorthwulf of Mercia in his defeat of Merfyn Frych, King of Gwynedd at the Battle of Cetyll.

                                  851 - Richeard and Alfgar fight with King Aethelwulf of Wessex in his defeat of the Danes at the Battle of Oakley. Richeard and Ailef fight again, but they are swept up in the battle and lose each other.

                                  Inconclusive fight between Richeard of Mercia and Ailef of Deira, aka Aldrich Monk, 851

                                  866 - Ailef is with the Danish forces that capture York and in 867 helps them defeat the Northumbrians.

                                  869 - Richeard and Alfgar are both killed at the Battle of Hoxne in which the Danes defeat the East Anglians and kill King Edmund the Martyr. Richeard and Alfgar retreat south.

                                  871 - Ailef, now a top commander in the Danish army, helps defeat the West Saxons at the Battle of Reading. He is then killed in battle at Ashdown as the Danes are beaten by King Aethelred of Wessex. Richeard and Alfgar are captains in the West Saxon army. Ailef fought Alfgar, but was shot down by a Saxon arrow.

                                  Inconclusive fight between Alfgar of Winchester and Ailef of Deira, aka Aldrich Monk, 871

                                  876 - Ailef helps the Danes capture southern Northumbria and found the Kingdom of York.

                                  877 - As the Danes, including Ailef, capture Exeter, Richeard and Alfgar enter the service of Alfred the Great.

                                  878 - Richeard and Alfgar are with Alfred the Great at the Battle of Edington in Wiltshire as he defeats the Danes and captures Chippenham. Ailef is with Guthrum as the Danes retreat to Cirencester and take control of East Anglia.

                                  886 - Richeard and Alfgar join Alfred as he restores London to Mercia and signs a treaty with Guthrum, granting the territory between the Thames and the Tees to the Danes. Alfgar accepts a challenge from Ailef, but Richeard deliberately gets Alfgar drunk, so he oversleeps and misses the duel, afraid for his student's life against Ailef's superior swordsmanship.

                                  893 - Richeard and Alfgar help an alliance of Anglo-Saxons and Welsh defeat a Viking army at the Battle of Buttington in Powys, Wales.

                                  896 - Ailef joins the Danish army that leaves Wessex.

                                  910 to 920 - Richeard and Alfgar help Edward the Elder, King of Wessex, son of Alfred, and his sister, Aethelfreid, conquer most of the Danelaw.

                                  Okay, that's the first part of the origins of the SIS and the Hellfire Club/Brimstone. I'll continue the next chapter tomorrow, which will deal with Richeard's revelation that sees him decide to stop fighting on the battlefield but fight from the shadows, and Ailef's decision to abandon his birthname and become Aldrich Monk of Brimstone.

                                  Cheers

                                  • You defintitely caught the ball I was launching Apollo! Brillant ideas there, a great timeline of events. I am looking forward to read what comes next and if you have background stories for the other Hellfire Club members. Have you notice the chess names are all present for both colors in my stories (knight, bishop etc..) exept for the King and Queen. Only one King and Quen to rule the club unless there was a White Queen and Black King who were killed by Aldrich and his Black Queen before the Hllifre Club made itself known.

                                    I love how you are turning Aldrich and Richeard into a Magneto/Xavier kind of duo, that's good writing. It reminds me of the days when we created this world together.

                                    Battle of Hatfield Chase is 633, not 635.
                                    Addendum :

                                    732 - Richeard and Ailef are at the Battle of Tours near Poitiers, France, fighting with the Frankish army of
                                    Charles Martel against the Moors. They meet Kyra of Sparta who fights and kills Moorish Immortal Nasr-el-Din

                                    Here are your Southern African Immortals, some entries I haven't written yet.

                                    Cheers!

                                    Aisha al-Fadhil has been involved in the War in Afghanistan since the beginning, I think she had enough.
                                    She asked to be demobilized. She wants to join the poacher-hunters of Eastern Cape, those trying to protect South African wildlife. Power to her, people are noticing she doesn’t seem to age and is impervious to wounds which would normally kill any other then her. Time to move on. Who knows, she may hook up with Olapede Chukwu also huntign poeachers in the Cape.

                                    All that anger and agression, she take it out on aggressive players of the Game, but she has Sheila to bring balance in her life. If in the end there can truly be only one, she hopes there still be two : herself and Sheila, the love of her young life. It is already not easy to be anegro woman and lesbian in Sout hAfrica, but an Immortal ? You’d have to be crazy to stay here, but Pam wants to stay with Sheila and both women wouldn’t have it any other way.

                                    Olapede has just become the new Head Ranger at the Addo Elephant National Park, fulfilling a long-held dream of his. Since the time of his First Death, Olapede has taken on the lone burden of preserving Africa's heritage; her wildlife and cultures in the face of first, European colonialism, and then the post-Colonial upheavels that saw the dark continent plunged into countless civil wars, inter-tribal warfare and genocide. It is a lone battle and a burden he has shouldered with remarkable dignity and resilience. It's notable Olapede's heads include two European Immortals who took advantage of the African conquests for their own selfish ends, including that obnoxious English game-hunter Avery de Beaumont, who thought Olapede's head would be the perfect trophy to adorn his mansion wall back in the Old Country.

                                    These days it is poachers and crooked businessmen exploiting the treasures of Africa and her people and wildlife who command his attention and Olapede meets that challenge with the same determination and valour that he does when he faces an Immortal. Long may it continue.

                                    After having been a Landsknecht mercenary, a WWI airplane pilot and war hero fightintg side by side with Hermann Goering (don’t he wish had had shot him down himself!) and fabled Von Richtoffen whose name he took later on, Sigmund Holthaus is hunting serial killers in South Africa,using the same hunting skills he used when he had mastery of the sky. He takes his time studying his target’s hunting patterns, attending autopsies, studying casebooks and interviewing imprisoned serial killers. He is good at his job but I am afraid getting immersed in so much darkness is taking its toll on Sigmund, he is drinking a lot and his mood has changed. I don’t want him to go in depression or to undergo a personality change that would put him on the wrong side of the Game. He is a dark, brooding character with a tragic past, he has his hands full of the blood of past victims himself and I believe he tries to redeem himself by being a profiler, following in the pattenrs of Matthew McCormick. Heaven help us if an Immortal like Sigmund starts using his skills in the wrong way!
                                    But this is a strong character who won’t fall so easily unless he kills the wrong Immortal and undergoes the dreaded Dark Quickening. It’s becoming more and more frequent with passign decades.

                                    Another serial rapist sent to prison for twenty years, thanks to the efforts of Sheila Meintjes, as ferocious in the tribunal as she is in the Game. An apt survivor, she is not a disciple of Bebe Kenyatta for nothing, a good way for her to deal with the demons from her past. Not even the Immortals War could undermine her will to survive, to be the sharpest sword in the Game or the sharpest attorney of Johannesburg.

When she realized she couldn’t fight him, or vainquish him, she manipulated a Nubian immortal by name of Hasdrubal Skaras who did the job for her, in Colombia. Callestina is a manipulative vixen who always gets her man, using any means necessary

                                    There is something savage, untamed in Africa which lures European immortals to its black lands, something pure, wild and beautiful which immortals such as Charles Herne never get tired from. Herne the Hunter as we know him has been on Watcher records for one hundred and thirty six years and during all that time played the Game with a vigor and ferocity rarely seen from an immortal of his physical age. He has a passion, a love of hunting unparalleled by others but unlike an immortal like Martin Hyde, is not coward, and will face his man or his animal alone, sword or gun in hand. He faces the rhino or the lion same way he faced Cassius Polonius and Lord Bluebeard, with bravura and his outdated sens of honor and discipline. The world is his playground he once said to Jackson Trent but warned him of the love coming from little Emma : this is a chidl-woman who needn’t be hurt and needs to be taken care of. Trent the gentleman understood it but asked him what that had to do with honor and the Game. Herne answered that in Love, in Immortality, in the Game you need to remain a decent human being so you do not lose yourself in your own darkness.

                                    Alice Lenshina knows her way with men and that the better way to defeat a man if either though kiss or kill. She killed many but she kissed the SIS Immortals coming after her, sensing the innate goodness in Raymond d’Amboise and Eadwulf of the Secret Immortals Services, defeatign them in single combat and then taking htem to her bed where she conviced them that the ways of the British Crown in Africa was wrong and that they did as much damage to her culture as it did to the culture of Kenya and India. This is a woman with huge sexual charisma and though d’Amboise and Eadwulf have knows many victories I nwar and love, they know a strong woman when they meet one and always admitted to their “deafeat” in the arms of Alice Lenshina.

The horrified Julia denied the re-appaearance of Sipho, calling him a zombie , giving the poor man a lesson in how sometimes, it is better to leave the past behind. Peter Gaicus taught him the rules of Immortality, the Game, how to ight with a sword but he didn’t teach him to move on with his life by the look of it.

A calm, pacifical man who keeps out of the modern world, from its technologies and likes nothing more than his peace and quit among his fellow bushmen.

                                    Kotsi Ndabane appears to live head in clouds where the Game is concerned, he fights only for the SANDF corps and evades the attentions of players of the Game as much as possible, protected by the numbers of the soldiers he is surrounded with. In ten years, five Immortals came after his head, he managed to avoid them because he either was carrying missions in Eastern Cape or was in training maneuvers, so it would have been difficult for anyone to openly challenge him. But someday he will meet the challenge he can’t run from and he will have to face his man sword in hand, instead of with his gun. And we shall see how he fares.

                                    believe those wild tales of immortality

                                    Dinhh-hy adopted two little girls, 6 and 8, absolutely beautfiful and who may bwell-be pre-immortals with that habit that immortals have to adopt those of their kind when thery are in infancy. Dinh-Hy found them in a brothel of Phnom Pen and it cost him a fortune to purchase them from their ‘proprietor’. But still, they are now safe and under intensive therapy so they can rebuild their broken childhood after the horrors they must have suffered during their time in that awful place. We wish them all the happiness in the world.

                                    The commercial exploitation of children is a significant issue in Swaziland, with hundreds of children and young teens being exploited and trafficked to South Africa . Odela shelters a fair number of children who escaped from brothels, needing protection – some of them infected with AIDS, and she herself has dispatched a fair number of immortals coming after those children, including a brothel manager and his mortal enforcers. If in the end there can be only one, that one won’t be an exploiteur of children where Odela Nkabingwe is concerned.

                                        • Glad you like what i'm doing with the Hellfire Club and SIS, my friend. I'm afraid you've opened the floodgates! I've got lots of ideas and i'm having fun inserting the journeys of Richeard and Aldrich into real history. And yes, i was inspired by the Xavier/ Erik frenemy relationship by having Richeard and Ailef/Aldrich be two former "brothers" who had a major falling out over differing ideas on what they should do with their immortality, and each went on to found their own shadowy cabal, but with opposing goals and ideals.

                                          Thanks for pointing out the error with the Battle of Hatfield Chase, i misread my own handwriting, mistook a 3 for a 5! Lol

                                          And also, thankyou for adding the Kyra of Sparta note to Richeard and Ailef's chronicle. I'm so caught up in the journey of these two rivals that i don't really get time to cross-check with other Immortals, so if you do know of any other potential encounters as i go along, please don't hesitate in adding them to the record.

                                          And yes, Gardner, i do have backstories for the other members of the Hellfire Club/Brimstone, and i hope you enjoy the reveals!

                                          Now, onto the next chapter:

                                          927 - Richeard and Alfgar are with the army of King Aethelstan as he occupies York and unites the Anglo-Saxon Heptarchy into the Kingdom of England.

                                          931 - Richeard and Alfgar are at the first Council of All England in Colchester. Ailef heads north for Scotland to the court of Constantine II, King of Scots.

                                          934 - Richeard and Alfgar join King Aethelstan as he invades Scotland, reaching as far as Caithness.

                                          937 - Battle of Brunanburh. Richeard and Alfgar help King Aethelstan defeat the combined armies of Olaf Guthfrithson, the King of Dublin, Constantine II, King of Scots, and Owain ap Dyfnwal, King of the Cumbrians. Ailef, once again meets Alfgar on the battlefield, and once again he is cut down before he can kill Richeard's student, this time by an English spear through his chest.

                                          Inconclusive fight between Alfgar of Winchester and Ailef of Deira, aka Aldrich Monk, 937

                                          Ailef slips away from the battlefield and leaves the mainland for Dublin, offering his services to Olaf Guthfrithson.

                                          939 - King Aethelstan dies and Richeard and Alfgar enter the service of his brother Edmund I of England. Edmund is aware of their immortality as his brother was, and values their service. Ailef is with Olaf Guthfrithson as he captures York.
                                          A young woman, a sometime-prostitute and petty thief, is raped and murdered by the Viking invaders. Elfrida of York is mentored by Ailef, becoming his protégé and lover. He teaches her the sword and how to use her wit and wiles to survive and thrive in the Game. As Ailef would one day abandon his own name and become Aldrich Monk, so would Elfrida, becoming Evangeline Black.

                                          Evangeline Black

                                          Known aliases (to be added): Elfrida of York (birth name), Abbess Elfrida
                                          of Iona.

                                          Born: 915, Scandinavian York, England
                                          First death: 939, Raped and murdered during the
                                          capture of York by Olaf Guthfrithson, King of Dublin
                                          First teacher: Ailef of Deira, aka Aldrich Monk

                                          944 - As King Edmund takes York from the Vikings, there is a first clash between the students of Richeard and Ailef, as Alfgar and Elfrida duel. Alfgar defeats Elfrida but is unwilling to take the head of a woman, she repays him by stabbing him in the heart with a hidden dagger and fleeing before Richeard can intervene.

                                          Inconclusive fight between Alfgar of Winchester and Elfrida of York, aka Evangeline
                                          Black, 944

                                          946 - Seeking revenge for the defeat at York, Ailef and Elfrida plot the death of King Edmund. Elfrida seduces an exiled criminal and convinces him to murder Edmund at Pucklechurch. He is succeeded by his brother Eadred of England.

                                          947 - Continuing his revenge plot, Ailef persuades Wulfstan I, Archbishop of York, to invite Viking leader Eric Bloodaxe to become King of Northumbria.

                                          948 - At the behest of Richeard and Alfgar, King Eadred expels Eric Bloodaxe from Northumbria.

                                          952 - Ailef and Elfrida are with Eric Bloodaxe as he reconquers York. Richeard responds by convincing King Eadred to imprison Wulfstan, Archbishop of York, Ailef's puppet.

                                          The story continues tomorrow!

                                          • Good job on historical research and the origins of Evangerline (the poor woman). Never challenge an Englishman on his own grounds when it comes to the history of his homeland! lol I love how Elfredstabs the poor Alfgar, I wonder what she thought of him after he went through the Dark Quickening incident.
                                            It seems the two blood-bothers/ennemies are competing against each others in your story, a bit like Claremont and Byrne on X-Men and Fantastic Four in the 1980's, when they tired to damage each other's work. Actually Byrne was being an unpleasant rival.
                                            Looking forward to what comes next.

                                            Btw, I have a nice idea for a rival to the Black Queen Evangeline , the Club's would-be White Queen : Messalina of Rome, the historical character and also bitter rival to Seraphina. A nice nod to the comci book's Hellfire Club where an ancient and powerful sorceress took over.
                                            She is still active those days, triggering sexual scandals in Manhattan, biting people where it hurts. An important figure of the finance and political scenery. Sexually promiscuituous, great in bed, a deadlier shade of Seraphina. A dark Seraphina, played by Asia Argento.

                                            • For convenience sake I am posting the exact roster of the "real" Brotherhood of Ra who were twelve, and not 24 as previously stated. The twelve others were redundant in nature so I merged them together. It makes for a simpler, more coherent battle royale at Ra's fortress of Luxor.

                                              Cleophon of Athens, Kellistra, Deoneces and Kyra of Sparta, Katherine of Samothrace, Xanthia of Melitus, i.e the last survivors of the group who took down the original Zodiac Brotherhood, as well as Seraphina, Henry of Kent, Frances Drummond, Clemont Haynes, i.e the surviving roster of Ravenwood with Kashta of Nubia, Sit-Hahtor Iunet and Alex Raven entered Ra's palace that was built like an ancient Egyptian shrine.
                                              They had to fight the combined strenght of the Brotherhood of Ra, twelve fanatics of Egyptian background who zealously followed Memnet-Ra's every command and were taken down in furious fights by Cleophon's followers. The details of who killed who are lost to us but it is likely they didn't last long against the determined pack of Immortals.
                                              A stairway led to a gigantic grotto where stood, throning, Memnet-Ra, his Queen Nefertiri and the ancient Naga-ed-er who supervised the fortress personnel.

                                              Identified as the chief supervisor of Ra's fortress personel, answering to Ra and Nefertiri only, Naga-ed-er was also the high priest of Ra's personality cult, making sure his vision of himself as rule of all Immortal beings was shared by al those living in the fortress. Not much is known about him, he Met Kashta of Nubia in ancient Egypt and vanished at the same time Nefertiri and Marcus Constantine parted ways when Cleopatra chose suicide over slavery in Rome.
                                              A volubile character, with a persuasive personality, Naga-ed-er was reported killed by Deoneces of Sparta while Henry of Kent, Seraphina, Kyra of Sparta, Katherine, Xanthia and Frances separately took out the remnants of Ra’s army, the Brotherhood of Ra. Meheret and Nebefer were part of the demi-god’s inner circle, as his private bodyguards . Akencheres and Kenefer have been identified as chief of security of Ra's palace and were good at dispatching any immortal who dared trespass on Ra's sactum, though their sword skills proved worthless beofre Kellitra's group. Tawfiq Youssef was in charge of infiltrating Egypt's government offices as well as travelling oversea to gahter knowledge on Immortal's in the four corners of the world nad made a lot of ennmies with the CIA, BMR, Knights of Charlemagne. He was also rumored to have exfiltrated former Nazis to Egypt and Syria.

Shaheen Batrawi and Intisar Al-Fayed posed as secretaries while in fact they were his concubines, his sex-slaves, jealously watched over by Nefertiri, Ra's wife. Ishah Ta’anari wormed her way into the beds of government officials, of rich and powerful men so she could create a network of mortals in service to Ra and answered to Haddad ibn Ibrahim, a master forger who created delicate paintings he could sell to the highest bidders as lost paintings of famour European painters.

                                              • Thanks for your observations, my friend. Appreciate it. Yes, it is a sort of competition between Richeard and Ailef, only with an entire nation as their playing field. Of course, during this period of history Ailef was still playing the game of politics for his own profit and reward, a sort of mercenary kingmaker. Later, as will gradually be revealed, he becomes more invested in his own wealth and power and frustrating the machinations of Richeard.
                                                I'm sure Alfgar regretted not finishing off Elfrida, her treachery was most likely a wake up call not to underestimate female Immortals, and i'm sure she took great delight in what happened to Alfgar.

                                                I love the idea of Messalina of Rome being a White Queen-in-exile. There could be some nasty business going on between her and Evangeline.

                                                And now for the next instalment of the Richeard/Ailef feud! Lol

                                                954 - Richeard and Alfgar take matters into their own hands to pre-empt the plans of Ailef and Elfrida. They enlist the help of Osulf, high-reeve of the northern half of Northumbria, who lures Eric Bloodaxe, his son Haeric and his brother Ragnald, to the remote Stainmore, where Richeard and Alfgar are waiting in ambush. Richeard kills Bloodaxe, while Alfgar cuts down Haeric and Ragnald. King Eadred then recovers York, forcing Ailef and Elfrida to escape north. The kingdom of Northumbria is reunited with England, under the administration of Osulf I of Bamburgh, the new Earl of Northumbria.

                                                955 - Ailef has Elfrida arrange the death of Eadred. She seduces the king's physician and uses her feminine wiles to convince him to poison Eadred with a concoction Ailef acquired from a herbalist that is undetectable. He is succeeded by his 15-year-old nephew Eadwig, son of King Edmund I and his Queen Aelfgifu of Shaftsbury. Richeard is at this time unaware that Ailef has become the lover of the former Queen and has influence over Eadwig. As a consequence, Eadwig orders the arrest of Richeard and Alfgar for the murders of Eric Bloodaxe and his kin, but with the help of trusted allies Richeard and Alfgar are able to slip away from the capital Winchester. Ailef and Elfrida are brought into Eadwig's council.

                                                956 - Bishop Dunstan, an ally of Richeard and Alfgar, is exiled by King Eadwig.

                                                957 - Richeard and Alfgar help ferment rebellion in Mercia and Northumbria, favouring Edgar, Eadwig's younger brother, as King. Richeard had arranged, with the help of trusted friends in Winchester, to spirit Edgar out of the clutches of Ailef to Mercia.

                                                958 - Archbishop Oda of Canterbury, another ally of Richeard, and supporter of Edgar, is murdered on the orders of Ailef, determined to purge his former friend's supporters from the court of King Eadwig.

                                                959 - Aelfsige, Bishop of Winchester, and lover of Elfrida, is enthroned as Archbishop of Canterbury. Aelfsige journeys to Rome to be given his pallium by Pope John XII, but supposedly dies of cold in the Alps. However, Alfgar and a select band of chosen men had followed the Archbishop and ambushed him and his entourage in the Alps, killing them all. At the behest of Ailef, King Eadwig nominates Bishop Byrhthelm to succeed him, another puppet of Ailef. But Richeard takes direct action, leading an elite band of hand-picked warriors into Winchester and assassinates King Eadwig under the noses of Ailef and Elfrida. Ailef and Elfrida flee Winchester as Edgar is named the new King. Edgar overturns the appointment of Byrhthelm as Archbishop of Canterbury in favour of Dunstan, Richeard's closest ally.

                                                TO BE CONTINUED.

                                                Cheers

                                                • Well these are pieces of England's history I ddn't know. Good job. Yes, there must have been some nasty business between Evangeline and Messalina. Have you noticed that Messalina beign the White Queen of hte Club, all the children she adopted could have been her "hellions" like Lucrezia ? (wink)
