    The Chronicle of Yun-dol Kim

    Known aliases : Hong Gilgong, Kim Dol Sung,
    Jonathan Kim
    Notable characteristics : Ambidextrious
    Weapon : Twin falchions

    Status
    Most recent base of operations : New-York NY
    Occupation : Security guard, Schlumberger
    Prior occupations : Traveller, sailor, mercenary,
    soldier, silk merchant
    Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
    Date : 7 February 1985
    Place : New-York NY
    Victor : The Kurgan
    Watcher : Research, Yung Dol-kim Chronicle

    Background
    Original cultural affiliation : Korean
    Born : 1562; Gyeonggi-do, South Korea
    First death : 1592, During invasion of Korea by
    Japanese army
    First teacher : Matsuhiro Kanagawa
    First recorded sighting : 1595, Okinawa Japan;
    Indentured servant of Matsuhir oKanagawa

    Surrounded from all sides by Oriental countries, Korea was often subjected to invasions like in 1592-98 when Japan attacked Korea with destruction of many buildings and the killing of many Koreans. Among them a pre-immortal merchant named Yung Dol-kim. Kim's body was found by Hattori Hanzo, ancient immortal and forger of swords who taught Kim of the Game and kept him as indentured servant, in exchange for letting him keep his head on his shoulders. Kim's hate for his master grew every passing day, until he managed to flee from him, poisoning him and robbing him of money, but without daring to take his head.
    The Korean society changed as traders and merchants began to trade with Japan and the West, and Kim knew he could never fit in any of those countries anymore. So he left for China and travelled to Outer Mongolia with several headhunters on his trail. He met Zhang-Shi, master of Kung-Fu and May-Ling Shen who both taught him more of the Game and to defend himself from his pursuers. A merchant by trade and heart, Kim evolved into a powerful fighting machine, so deeply involved in the Game that he lost track of the peaceful family man who saw his wife and children slaughtered by the Japanese.
    After witnessing the invasion of Tibet by China, the destruction of Hiroshima and Nagazaki, the Vietnam war, the rape of Nanking and so many other horrors, Kim felt it was time for him to retire after four centuries of fighting.
    The Korean immortal vanished in the middle of the 1960's and didn't re-appear until this year when he fell prey to the furious onslaught of the Kurgan; the Kurgan's Watcher reported that Kim no longer wanted to play the Game and was tired of fighting, wanting only to rest. The Kurgan granted him his wish, contemptuously taking his head and Quickening.

    Update, 03.03.2015

    It seems Sarah Lao’s write-up for the deceased Yung Dol-kim was greatly exaggerated. Yung Dol-kim never was a proficient player of the Game as Sarah seems to believe, unless this was a fantasy from her part.
    Yung Dol-kim’s life with Matsuhiro Kanagawa disgusted him from immortal life and he only sought training with May-Ling Shen and Zhang Shi to find self-defense techniques to ward off potential immortal opponents.
    His fight against Flameshadow was based on a misunderstanding, the Japanese kabuki mistook him for a serial killer of Japanese schoolgirls. And where on earth did Sarah find the idea that such an honorable warrior like Hattori Hanzo could take Kim as slave ? Matsuhiro Kanagawa was Kim’s tormentor, not Hanzo. Kim did keep twin falchions in his place of work, out of common sense, but I don’t think he used them in the past twenty years since he retired from the Game. Yung was a lot of things, but he never became a champion of the Game.
    Or only in the imagination of Sarah Lao.

    Kim won a mighty, powerful Quickening, but this was a hollow victory as he found out from Long’s memories : an ancient Immortal who found two callings in his life, serving his country and playing the Game

    Kitbuga
    Most recent base of operations : Hohhot, Inner
    Mongolia
    Occupation : Warrior
    Prior occupations : Horseman, raider
    Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
    Date : 1626
    Place : Hohhot

    Born : 1102; Liao Dynasty of Mongolia
    First death : 1122; Fighting the Jurchen, ancestors
    of the Manchu
    First teacher : Uv Bukhar

    Kitbuga has been found to be a past disciple of Uv Bukhar, a player of the Game who infected his disciple with his taste for the power of the Quickening. Kitbuga challenged Kim when the Korean was travelling though Inner Mongolia, searching for the legendary May-Ling Shen whom he heard was a firebrand I nthe Game and welcomed disciples from the four corners of the Orient, so long as they came with amiable intentions anda true will to learn. Kim’s will to learn was a burnign in him as his will to survive in the Game and he receved both opportunities in Mongolia when he won his fight against Kitbuga and when he was mentored by May-Ling Shen, who taught him the way of the Chinese sword, the ways of Chinese martial arts and how to please a Chinese woman in bed.

    Halim Saad
    Most recent base of operations : Malacca
    Sultanate of Aceh
    Occupation : Pirate ship captain
    Prior occupations : Freight ship captain
    Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
    Date : 1633 Attacking Dutch East Indies ships
    Place : Malacca
    Victor : Kim Yun-dol, navigator working for
    Chinese envoy to Sultan of Aceh
    Original cultural affiliation : Malaysian
    Born : 1156; Malay Archipelago, Srijivaja Empire
    First death : 1186; Conquest of Malay by Chola Empire
    First teacher : Shiva Gupta

    Halim Saad lived in Malaysia for five hundred years and had been scourging the southeast asian seas as a pirate ship captain, destroying ships, enslaving women, killing children or selling them to slave markets. He also hated foreign Immortals he felt were invading this country and specialized in attacking Dutch merchant ship at the time of the Dutch East Indies era of Malaysia. Kim worked for the Chinese envoy to the Sultan of Aceh and also helped merchant ships through safe waters as a navigator, having coined the term “multi-tasking” centuries before the word was invented. The fight between Kim and Halim took place in a seedy part of Malacca, after Halim sold three unfortunate girls to a local bordello. It is a shame Kim didn’t kill the Malay before the girs were sold in slavery.

    Kutemeikashite
    Most recent base of operations : Iga Province,
    Present Mie Prefecture, Japan
    Occupation : Ninja, specializing in guerilla warfare,
    espionnage and sabotage missions
    Prior occupations : Yamabushi, wxarrior-monk
    Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
    Date : 1651
    Place : Iga Province
    Victor : Kim Yun-dol, at this time guest of the town
    elder, targeted for assasination
    Original cultural affiliation : Japanese
    Born : 1280; Island of Honshu, Japan
    First death : 1324; Yamabushi killed assisting
    Emperor Go-Daigo in his attempt to overthrow
    Kamakura Shogunate
    First teacher : Go Usami, Yamabushi

    In 1651 Kim Yun-dol migrated to Japan as part of a diplomatic mission, a bodyguard with a taste for foreign cultures inherited from May-Ling Shen’s lessions. Durign a stay in a village of the Iqba province where he was a guest of the local village leader he fought an invisible assassin clad in black,carrying an assortiment of weaponry, in other words a Ninja. Kutemeikashite was a legendary killer who had murdered his way across the Empire of Japan for three hundred years and had the reputation of being an unkillable, fearsome opponent. Many Immortals tried to come after him, trying to rid Japan from this nuisanc,e including legedary Hattori Hanzo and fabled Miyamoto Musashi. But it was Kim Yun-dol who got to him, using tracking skills received from Mongol Kitbuga‘s Quickening : Kutemeikashite targeted the village leader and murdered his mortal bodyguards as well as his favorite concubine,spreading terror in the place.

    Anousheh Khayami
    Most recent base of operations : Delhi, India
    Occupation : Soldier, Persian army, occasional
    player of the Game hunting Kitbuga the Mongol
    Prior occupations : Ditto
    Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
    Date : 4 May 1739 Persian sack of Delhi
    Place : Delhi
    Victor : Kim Yun-dol, at this time living as a jewels
    merchant in Delhi
    Original cultural affiliation : Persian
    Born : 1238; Kingdom of Persia
    First death : 1258; Mass extermination of Persians
    by conquering Mongol army, killed by Mongol
    Warrior Kitbuga while defending her family
    First teacher : Lalica

    In 1739, Kim was living as a jewels merchant in Delhi, India, taking a few decades off from the violence of the Game.
    But the Game always catches up to even the more amiable of Immortals and in 1739 the Persians invaded India and sacked Delhi after the Battle of Karmal which marked the victory for Nader Shah of Ira, during his invasion of Mughal dynasty of India. As a captain of Shah's troops was Immortal woman (a woman !) Anousheh Khayami, a female player of the Game with a tragic past linked to a Mongol Immortal she had been hunting for nearly five centuries. Some Immortals really carry long grudges. Then she was challenged by Kim Yun-dol who protected his investments i nDlehi as well as the lives of the mortals he befriended and in spite of all the trainign she received from her teacher in 1258, lost her life agaisnt the Korean, not aware that this was the Immortal who killed her lifelong ennemy for her.

    Valeria Rozhkova
    Most recent base of operations : Khabarovsk,
    Far East District of Russia
    Occupation : Intelligence work, on behalf of
    Andrej Korda
    Prior occupations : Mistress/disciple of Andre
    Korda
    Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
    Date : 13 May 1853
    Place : Khabarovsk
    Victor : Kim Yun-dol
    Born : 1554; Transbaka, Russia
    First death : 1580, Killed by Cossacks during
    conquest of Siberia by Russian Tsardom
    First teacher : Andrej Korda
    Known associates : Andre Korda

    In 1853, Kim Yun-dol was part of the Koreans migration waves of the mid-19th century to Far E ast Russia and Siberia during the decline of the Joseon Dynasty. A lot of Korean peasants felt Siberia would give them a chance to live better lives and so they started migrating en masse, among them a household owner named Kim Yun-dol. Though thinking of retiring from the Game, the Game never forgot Jim in the person of a socialite named Valeria Rhozkova who saw those migratory waves as an opportunity to use Koreans as spies in the Far East, on behalf of her teacher, master manipulator Andre Korda.
    Korda always moved in mysterious ways and he ordered Valeria to r"ecruit Kim once she identifed him an an Immortal. But Kim wasn't a newbie who could be coerced and he saw Korda and Valeria's game as a danger to his community's efforts of integrating Siberian communities. The conflict between the three Immortals boiled to a point when Korda ordered his lover to dispose of the now-considered liability and once again Kim fought for his life. In 1907 it was the end of the Russo-Japan war (Korda's manipulations were somewhere behind), Russia enacted an anti-Korean law at the behest of Japan, under which the land of Korean farmers was confiscated and Korean labourers were laid off. Since then, Kim was long gone but the news did cause him a measure of chagrin.

    From a request by Andrew on the Source thread... Despicable movie but Reggie, Zai Jie and Giovanni had potential as characters.

    Giovanni Battista

    Notable characteristics : Lives on Holy Ground
    Eyes sensitive to sunlight
    Weapon : Crusader sword
    Recorded kils : None, not a player of the Game

    Original cultural affiliation : Italian
    Born : 1327, Sienna Italy
    First death : 1357, Drank poisoned wine
    First teacher : Leofric
    First recorded sighting : 1655 Paris; encounter with
    Darius

    With use of political stratagems, coercion and various degrees of blackmail, Cardinal Giovanni successfully had Joseph Ratzinger elected as Pope in 2005 after doing all he could to keep his previous tool living as long as possible. Giovanni loves the manipulation of Christian masses he can make by being the counsellor of the Pope in power. He has been doing this for the past seven hundred years. His great secret Game. The other Game, the one practiced by the Immortals isn't thrilling to him anymore, he prefers to dabble in politics.
    As far as immortality is concerned, there is only one question to which he wants an answer : where do the Immortals come from ? How many of them are there on Earth precisely ? Why did Immortals keep fighting and what is the source of their power ? Those questions obsess Giovannand he will use every mean necessary to obtain answers, even if it means sacrificing the lives of mortals or immortals.

    Zai Jie

    Notable characteristics : Curious aboput
    everything, unquenchable thirst for knowledfge
    and discovering foreign cultures
    Weapon : Song Dynasty zhanmadao sword

    Status
    Most recent base of operations : Chang'an

    Occupation : Archaeologist, medical doctor
    Roster of Immortals Status : Deceased
    Date : 14 December 1986
    Place : Chang'an
    Victor : Undetermined, possibly Kyala
    Watcher : Yang Jianli

    Background
    Original cultural affiliation : Chinese-Malaysian
    Born : 15th cnetury, Malaccan Empire, Malaysia
    First death : Cave-in exploring ruins of ancient
    village near Chang'an
    First teacher : Yau Chouan Chou
    First teacher : Yau Chouan Chou
    First recorded sighting : 1279 Repelling Mongol
    forces with May-Ling Shen

    Zai's quest for the origins of immortality began one thousand years ago in a remote valley near Beijing, looking for the location of ruins indicating the origins of the source of immortality : the answers to why do the immortals exist, why do they keep on living when empires and civilisations crumble around them, why do they keep fighting each others to death. Zai has heard of ancient scroll, mythical texts telling of the origins of the Game and the story of the first immortals who searched for answers. Zia has been combing the four corners of the world, present on every digging sites possble, in the hope of making his dream come true : to find the origins of immortals. A foolish quest, but we wish him well and wait for him to find out. We are as impatient as he is.

    Yang Jianli, 1986

    Author notes : Srephen Rhaman Hughes, the actor playing Zai, is of Malaysian ancestry and Malaysia was colonized by Chinese in the 15th Century.

    Watcher : Sandra Faber

    Background
    Original cultural affiliation : Norwegian
    Born : 1695, Oslow, Norway
    First death : 1720, Hung as witch for his theories
    on the movement of stars
    First teacher : Tycho Brahe
    Known past associates : Tycho Brahe
    First recorded sighting : 1720 Constantinople,
    Byzantine Empire. Witnessed his teacher’s death
    by the blade of Ya Nefer Ma’at of Egypt

    A vodka-guzzling astronomer, yet also a scientific genius that looks to the stars for an answer to why he was spared death and pain like those around him. Small in stature, he uses humor and bluster as survival skills. People saw the young man in the high-top sneakers and the ripped jeans and they underestimated him for centuries, yet he thrived on challenges in the Game, in the bed and among the stars.
    Long may he live !

      If I remember correctly, Reggie mentioned being in battle during either world war one or world war two in the film.

      I would also change his height in your chronicle from 3'2" to 5'2". He was not shown on-screen as a dwarf just as a short man.

      Nice background, how about a chronicle write-up ? Yes, Slocum would sleep with a prostitute and that would be a blatant case of watcher interfering with his Immortal.



      Isabel Regalo
      Original cultural affilation : Brazilian
      Born : 1811; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
      First death : 1830, Died from malaria
      First teacher : Theresa Malloy

      Guenau Bolano
      Original cultural affiliation : Spanish
      Born : 1963; Cordoba, Spain
      First death : 1989; Suicide
      First teacher : Isabel Regalo

      Guenau Bolano and Isabel Regalo have a unique slant on playign the Game : Guenau plays the lonely young Immortal who is prisonner of an abusive relationship, whose girlsfriend is following him like his own sahdow. When he finds a symapthetic ear amogn hte Immortals, he waits that the relationship is comfy enough so he can lure the Immortal (preferably a woman) in his home where Isabel is waiting. She plays the jealous fury and jumps on the hapless Immortal who has been weakened by a drugged glass of wine from Guenau, and then the two lovers share hte Quickening. They share everything since Bolano's suicide in 1989 over a broken heart.But was Bolano doesn't know is that Isabel has had many Immortal "partners" of both sexes in 187 years of existence, all agreeing to play her game and beign disposed of Immortal-style when Isabel tired of them. The maipulative vixen and the foolish fox truly make a deadly team, but for how long ?

        Very nice of you. All Immortals featured on that list are covered in my chronicles.

      I opened it up in a text document and combed through it hahaha. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the actual chronicles for the entries, just the basic info.

        Here is the chronicle of Francois Marchette, the Cynophobic swordsman

        NAME: Francois Marchette
        KNOWN ALIASES: Maurice Fontenot

        STATUS
        UNIQUE CHARACTERISTICS: Cynophobic (Fear of dogs)
        MOST RECENT BASE OF OPERATIONS: Paris, France
        OCCUPATION: Independent means
        ROSTER OF IMMORTAL'S STATUS: DECEASED
        DATE: 1982
        PLACE: Paris, France
        VICTOR: Peter Kanis
        WATCHER: Claude Massanet

        BACKGROUND
        BORN: 1729; Gévaudan, France
        ORIGINAL CULTURAL AFFILIATION: French
        FIRST DEATH: 1764
        CIRCUMSTANCE: Killed by the Beast of Gévaudan
        FIRST TEACHER: Brannix of Gaul

        Francois could have taken out Kanis. He had the skills, the drive to win the Game, the experiance.
        What did couldn't prepare for, was the dogs. Most likely stemming from his first death, the sight of a dog
        terrified him. So when he had literally run through a Parisian park, being chased by Kanis's Rotweilers, he was in
        no state to fight and take that thief Kanis's head.


        And a personal update to Xaiver St.Cloud

        NAME: Khaled el Zitouna
        KNOWN ALIASES: Xaiver St. Cloud, Gerard Fleurie, Nelson Mfume

        STATUS
        UNIQUE CHARACTERISTICS: Lost left hand in battle, Paris 1992
        MOST RECENT BASE OF OPERATIONS: Paris, France
        OCCUPATION: Jewel Thief
        ROSTER OF IMMORTAL'S STATUS: DECEASED
        DATE: 1982
        PLACE: Paris, France
        VICTOR: Duncan MacLeod
        WATCHER: Stanley Barton

        BACKGROUND
        BORN: ca. 1160; Morocco
        ORIGINAL CULTURAL AFFILIATION: Moor
        FIRST DEATH: 1192
        CIRCUMSTANCE: Fighting in the armies of Saladin, 3rd Crusade
        FIRST TEACHER: Henri St. Cloud of France

        Early in his Immortal life, probably around the same time he whacked his first teacher and took both
        the man's head and his name, Khaled el Zitouna realized that the road to success was paved with dirty tricks.
        In his early days, Khaled would choose his victims with care, studying them, never challenging one who might
        be better than he. MacLeod lost a good friend and teacher, Hamza el Kahir, to Khaled that way. Later Khaled
        experimented with poison gas and other dishonorable methods to incapacitate his victims before taking their heads.
        After Macleod took his hand in 1992, Khaled even resorted to mercenaries with Uzis, no class. Khaled may have a
        polished demeanor - well dressed, well-read, well-spoken, as well as a weakness for expensive caviar and rare art -
        but inside beat the heart of a coward. MacLeod did the world a huge favor when he took out this one.

          Good job on François Marchette, a cynophobic with links to a tragic story from France's past, killed by that nutjob Kanis! I like the name you give to Xavier too. Well done.

          That still doesn't seem good enough to me, though. Xavier runs around back then saying things about not killing children or sleeping with virgins. Centuries in the future he also almost gives a "real" answer to why he kills mortals, and it seemed to be there must be some interesting backstory there. Something a lot better than "He's just a total scumbag."

        Xavier's chronicle write-up is from the Watcher CD ROM. Only the name has been modified. Von Mollet, maybe you could write a short text explaining how Xavier went from being a player of the Game who doesn't kill children - and he was certainly taunting Duncan MacLeod when he said this - to a heartless killer who takes pleasure in killing.

          And now, Von Mollet, a surprise for you : here are some of the characters you created on the previous HLBB, only with minor modifications. I safeguarded them on my databases, crediting you as their author.

          Kenshiro Tatsuya

          Known aliases : "Bug" Tatsuya, Tetsuo Shima
          Notable characteristics : None
          Weapon : Japanese military saber
          Recorded kills : Sadato Tani, Kenishi Tuyama,
          Genjo Ito

          Status
          Most recent base of operations : Tokyo, Japan
          Occupation : Motorcyclist, bosozoku gang leader
          Prior occupations : Motorcyclist
          Roster of Immortals Status : Active
          Date :
          Place :
          Victor :
          Watcher : Shingo Misawa

          Background
          Original cultural affiliation : Japanese
          Born : 1932, Kyoto Japan
          First death : 1952, Motorcycle accident
          First teacher : Keiko Watanabe
          Known associates : None
          Known past associates : Keiko Watanabe
          First recorded sighting : 1952, Kyoto. Student of Watanabe

          Bug Tatsuya embodies the spirit of bosozoku. The hair, the attitude, the motorcycle. A rebel at heart, he never should fit in. He even uses a military sabre of his homeland instead of the Japanese katana that the majority of Immortal countrymen and women use. He travels around Japan, causing trouble wherever he goes. Speeding through traffic, setting fires and getting in fights. He better watch out though. Word is yakuza boss, Matsuhiro Kanagawa, is out for his head after Bug torched a restaurant that was a front for a betting parlor he owned. Bug better watch out, or sharpen his sword skills. I'd put my bets on the former samurai anyday.

          Shingo Misawa. 2009

          I am afraid to report that we lost another dedicated Watcher, Private Mike Sanders, in Irak. His platoon was ambushed by a Taliban cell while doing a patrol. After a firefight, only him and his assignment, John Ray Feilding remained and were taken by Taliban forces to a undisclosed location. When asked who was higher in rank, Feilding said Sanders was, knowing that the terrorists would want a higher rank to hold for ransom. They beheaded Feilding, taping it, and sent a message to US Forces. By the time the US responded, the area was deserted and Sanders was found shot in the head excution style.

          When John Ray Fielding first met Amanda in 1917, he was a corporal of the British army, stationed in France on the battlefield of WWI with orders for his untit to ceasefire for the day so as to avoid a situation with the Germans were they would all have been needlessly killed. Ray was carrying his order in a wallet with money in it, which Amanda coveted.
          Ray was ambushed and tried to explain to the thief that his orders were important, he couldn't give her his wallet. But she didn't listen, knocked him out and stole both letter and money. When Ray woke up, it was too late : his unit made of 120 men had been slaughtered in battle and himself met his First Death later in the trenches.
          His teacher, Everett Bellian taught him about immortality and disclosed to him the identity of the woman he met. Ray swore to find the thief who had caused the death of his comrades-in-arms.
          It was not only the death of his friends that broke his heart, but also seeing from afar his wife marrying another man and their adopted children growing up without him. Not knowing anything alse, Ray stayed a soldier, fighting in Spain, Korea and Vietnam under different identities, living by the sword and by the gun.
          In 1998, Ray found the woman who destroyed his life in Toronto, confronted her and challenged her to a fight; Amanda, a thief with a conscience, felt guilty and accepted the challenge.
          Who knows what would have happened if her pre-immortal friend Nick Wolfe hadn't interfered, making Fielding realise that Amanda's death wouldn't bring his friends back from the grave, and that revenge was a two-edged sword : it kills its carrier as well as its target.
          Fielding reluctantly agreed to let bygones be bygones, and left Amanda to her bad conscience, ready to start a new life fresh without revenge in his heart.

            Lassiter better watch out. Most Immortals would want to keep a low profile, but apparently Howard didn't get the memo. Everytime he goes out, he draws attention to himself, and not the good type. Accusations of drug use, alcohol abuse, and beating his girlfriend, his face is often plastered over tabloid newspapers. We've taken steps to make sure that when he loses his head it won't be discovered he's a 180 year old immortal who carries a sword for protection. When a small town nobody goes missing, nobody bats an eyelash. When a football star who is constantly in the spotlight goes missing, people ask questions.

            Challenged and beheaded by Suetonus

            Gaius Suetonius Paulinus ordered the Roman army to destroy the Celtic Druid stronghold on Anglesey in Britain, sacking Druidic colleges and sacred groves. The massacre helped impose Roman religion on the world and sent Druidism into a decline from which it never recovered; Amergan was high priest of the Anglesey stronghold and survived only to bury his brethen and to see the Druid cult vasnih into obscurity until his death three hundred years later by the blade of Blasius Suetonus, marking his first and only recorded appearance.
            Later research allowed him to identify him as a past student of Druidess Asteria of Gaul at a time when she lived as a Druidess in Celtic Britain during the times of Britannia's invasion by the Romans.

            I had the feeling that women would be the end of Niccoli. He had snuck out tonight to meet two women that had come to the monastary earlier in the day. They had asked him to meet them that night to speak to him about something dire. He obliged them meeting them away from the monastary. But waiting for him instead, was The Kurgan. The Kurgan had known of Francesco's weakness for women, after nearly taking his head at a harem two years ago, and had bribed two women to lure him out. After he took Francesco's head he bedded and murdered the two women. I guess they a fullfiled their purpose.

              Taken in and taught of Immortality by Kage

              As the first Immortal Kage encountered after what he had seen back in '75, Andrew Breeland is a good representation of his new outlook on life. Breeland, a former junkie and small time hood, has been given a new lease on life. If Cambodia never happened, I'm sure Kage would have taught him how to make an easy buck and take heads or worse, take his head outright. But instead Kage is teaching him peace and love, something I figure Breeland has never lived with. While Kage is still teaching him how to use a sword, I figure this is just a protective measure for when Breeland eventually leaves his teacher.

              Mike Dunham, 1986

              Breeland found Ohane Munroe among the debris of a house on the suburbs of New Orleans, he tried to reach out to her but this is an untrusting immortal hiding in the frame of the teenaged Ohane and though Andrew Breeland isn’t a pedophile, she recoiled from him. As the remains of the house was taken away by the flood, so was Breeland on his boat. I nearly drowned too, watching them from afar. I hope this isn’t the last we see of Breeland and of that unfortunate girl.

              In 1944, Sergeant James Guidry died in a skrimish with Nazi troops in France. After awaking an Immortal, he was found by a former soldier, Antoine Legris, who taught him the ways of Immortality. Coming back to the States in 1972, finding the US he left had changed immensely. Finding work as a dishwasher in Shreveport at Easy Eddie's Grill a barely one star grill. Over time he rose from dishwasher to chef and from chef to maître d'hotel. When he eventually bought the place, he overhauled the restraraunt, making it a four star restraraunt when he was finished. Life was good, until that little punk Kant, took his head. The Grill has since closed, as if it died with him.

              Hyde the Hunter chased madame Moselle to the ouskirts of Paris. She tried to warn her mentor, Pierre Segur, of Hyde's plan. But was too late. She encountered the Scotsman Duncan MacLeod, who informed her that Hyde had found her teacher. She rushed to where MacLeod said the two had gone, ignoring him reminding her the rules of the Game. When she arrived, it was too late. Hyde had taken away the only thing she had to a father, and instead of protecting him, she had lead Hyde right to him.

With her amazonian build, close-cropped hair and wielding a two handed zweihander, she is a headhunter with a chip the size of a small country on her shoulder. I feel bad for any man that gets on her bad side.

                Terrence O'Connor was sometimes mistaken as Terrence of Coventry because of their similar names, but an adventurous aristocrat he wasn't : more an opportunist and rogue ready for anything if he could turn a profit. I am sure he would have done a lucrative business as a gangster in the years following the Prohibition, with the rise of the Italian-American maffia, but he ran into an elderly immortal who ran a distillery operation behind the cover of silvermithing and Terrence felt he could associate himslef with someoneof his kind, for once. Unfortunately, Kincaid didn't see it that way and whipped his sword when the Aussie asked for a bigger part of the action.

                All Julie wanted was to be a mother. After many attempts to become preganant in her pre-immortal life failed, she resorted to theft. She stole an infant from a house one night only to be caught and killed the following morning. When Garibaldi found her and told her she could never have children, her world fell apart. So when a young Immortal boy came to her looking for a safe place to hide 192 years later, she welcomed him with open arms. Shame she was the one who needed protection.

                George always had a soft spot for charity cases. Even before he died his first death, he was always taking in the poor, giving them hot meals and shelter for the night. When a crazed beggar stabbed him in a back alley that night in 1780, he found that he couldn't die, nor could he stop helping the disprivledged. On his way out West, he found Micheal Moore, a newly born Immortal with a truckload of emotional trauma. He taught him the ways of the Game and sent him on his way, not knowing the evil Michael had in him. He relocated in Washington, opening a shelter, much as he had before. It wasn't long until he ran into a Immortal child named Kenny. He took him in, raising him as his own. Until one night Kenny took his head, taking a life of a man who had done nothing but help others.

                Finally I don't have to watch that spoiled brat anymore. Annika finally thought she would have revenge on Amanda for when Amanda stole her favorite necklace in 1923, but Amanda made sure to end her before she had a tantrum. Again. Actually can't remember a day without one. Heck, Kenneth acts like more of an adult than her. It's about time someone put her in her place.

                Some Immortals have a bad reaction to the presence of Immortal and this weakness can prove fatal : they get epilepsy and find themselves as defenceless as infants. The cause of most cases of epilepsy is unknown. Some cases occur as the result of brain injury, stroke, brain tumors, infections of the brain, and birth defects, in the cause of Immortals it is the power of the Quickening laying in their brains and spinal cord that can cause those reactions.

                Some reactions are benign, Kit O'Brady is famous for brutally sneezing in the presence of other Immortals, but in the case of Paul Furio (Immortality's own James Bond) and Malek Ben Mansour from Morocco, epilepsy has caused them more troubles than they care to count, and in the case of Furio it proved fatal : during his investigation of the Red Brigades in 1973 it provoked such a seizuere in him that the Brigages leader - Marcantonio Fitipaldi - easily took hold of him and killed him. Jamal Al Din of Syria was prime warrior material, a young Immortal from Damascus who found epilepsy prevented him from playing the Game and turned from warlike activities to more scholarly careers. Simon Vasilyev was one of the best blades from Russia, after Victor Markov, but a bad Quickening left this after-effect in him and he retired from a promising career among the Immortals of Mother Russia to concentrate on his other talent : singing among the Red Army Choir with the Alexandrov Ensemble.

                Those Immortal have tried to find medications with brain surgeon Peter Gaicus and herbalist Grace Chandel, unfortunately it is incurable for an Immortal : it is the Immortal range which is at fault and there is no true control over the Immortal range, lest you be an ancient and powerful Immortal able to cloack yourself from other Immortals.

                  Greetings, Gardner, old friend! Long time no see! So glad to hear from you again. Seeing you posting again on here made me dig out all those Chronicles we did together and chuckle at the fun times we had. I think I counted about 2500 Immortals or there abouts in my records.

                  BTW Did you ever do the Chronicles for those 12 Immortals Xanthia of Melitus killed during her Dark Quickening period?

                    Lady Sun was on a mission for Empress Mu of China when Xanthia finally caught up to her after thirty years of hunting her former disciple. Lady Sun was a skilled fighter but couldn’t thing of raising her sword against her teacher and Metopholus had wanred her : if she took Xanthia’s head, she risked beign infected with the dreaded Dark Quickening. Sun had few possibilities left, other than running and hinding, two things Xanthia originally taught her to avoid. She taught her to stand her ground. And finally Lady Sun just did that and faced what was to come. Bactria’s night skies were illuminated with her passing Quickening and when Xanthia received the life-edssence of her student, her Watcher could swear he saw the killer cry over the grave she herself dug for her with her own two hands.

                    In a moment of lucidity, when rationality was hers again, Xanthia of Melitus sought the help of Darius whom she heard was living in Mongolia, but found one of his disciples instead : Abraham of Kratia, a holy immortal and Christian missioniary, known to help the infirms of body and of mind and who could cure Xantia’s madness, at least she hoped. Abraham got wind of the madwoman coming to him through the immortal grapevine (a letter sent by the shadowy Manius Remus, possibly Methos) and was a bit on his guard, but Christian charity commanded him to help the ancietn immortal and Xanthia looked truly sincere.
                    Abraham put his hand on her forehead, his Watcher reported, and sent a prayer to God. But that wasn’t enough. Xanthia seemed to recover for a time but suffered a brutal relapse and took Abraham’s head outside of Holy Grounds before leaving.

                    The Siege of Constantinople in 626 saw the battle of Xanthia of Melitus (again under the influence of a Dark Quickening) against ‘Shibtu of Yambad’ as she introduced herself, a consort and favorite of the Emperro fo Constantinople. The fight, long and harduous, ended with Xanthia’s victory, the Quickening was quite powerful and rich, alluding to an immortal of ancient age. Shibtu’s background remained undetermined until her name was found mentioned in a chronicle of Egyptian Ankh-Psantek in 1274 BC, she was a consort of his and had to defend herself against his jealous rage until she disappeared from Watcher scope.
                    Ishtar of Erech is the immortal who disclosed her origin story of Jesus of Nazareth during their yearly trip to the Museum of Louvres in Paris, as she was the subject of an exposed painting.

                    persecuted the Jews

                    The Zealots were originally a political movement in 1st century Second Temple Judaism which sought to incite the people of Judaea Province to rebel against the Roman Empire and expel it from the Holy Land by force of arms, most notably during the First Jewish–Roman War (66-70). One of those Zealots was immortal Gershem Ben-Zion, a disciple of the legendary Gideon and a ferce ennemy of Rome and devoted to the cause of Jews's freedom to suimply exist.
                    For six hundred years he fought the legions led by Marcus Constantine until the fall of Rome.
                    In 630 he was helping fellow Israelites running from persecutions by Emperor Heraclius when he was found and killed by a red-haired Jewess identified as Xanthia of Melitus, still udner the influence of the Dark Quickening she received in 550 in India.

                    Born : 1110 BC; Gadir (present Cadiz), Spain
                    First death : 1060 BC; Defending temple against
                    robbers

                    Encounter with Carpus Cornelius, centurion under
                    Scipio Africanus’s command

                    Protiz of Cadiz was the first known disciple of Cassandra and the man to whom she referred to as her first student to Roland Kantos when she mentored him in Hispania, circa 415 AD and as having lived for eight hundred years at the very least before he disappeared in 206 BC at the time of Gadir’s capture by the Romans. After Kantos parted ways with his teacher, he sought to find Cassandra’s older student in the hope to learn from him and – we suppose, knowing that man well – in the hope of taking his Quickening. Kantos spent one century hunting Protis but never found him. However, the beheaded body of an ageing man was found in Southern Spain, in Murcia in 489, with evidences of a Quickening around. While we cannot prove this was Protiz, there is still a possibility that Kantos found his man. Indeed, elderly immortal are very scarce and Kantos was dedicated in his quest. Did Protis die by the blade of Kantos, nothing is certain.

                    Update :

                    Protis of Cadiz was killed in 636 by a red-haired madwoman we can assume was Xanthia of Melitus during the centuries when she was possessed by a Dark Quickening. Protis lived in Tiberias in Galilea and was keeping a shrine where he housed Jewish families. He didn’t suspect the beaitiful Minoan woman posing a a Jewess would come after his head.

                    After 92 years of hunting his old friend, Metopholus finally caught up to Xanthia in Alexandria the year the city was besieged by the Muslims who ordered the burning of Alexandria’s library. A tragedy for the wise Prisca Negra, a Nubian woman once disciple of Sunda Kastagir, and who sought to preserve the world knowledge, only to see it burnt down. But nothing could save her from pillaging Arabs and from the demented Xanthai who took her out after a brief battle. Did Prisca Negra’s Quickening sane her up ? Or was it Prisca’s innate goodness and widsom which washed away Xanthia’s anger and hate ? When Metopholus found Xanthia, it was as if she was reverting to her old self, but the ancient immortal knew better and took her to Tripolitania, to an ancient shrine located in a cave, where he left her on her own for seven days and nights, until Xanthia finally rid herself from her demons. The shrine was kept by a Muslim friend of his, Fayrul ibn al-Din who made sure Xanthia was kept safe.
                    In the end, Xanthia’s goodness prevailed and she was back to her senses, but befallen with the memories of the good immortals she murdered and of the mortals lives she destroyed during her rampaging years.

                        Hey, Gardner! Kind of lost my motivation when this place became unavailable and had no one to share ideas with. It wasn't the same without that fun back and forth between us, me coming up with names and you creating these wonderful characters from a brief outline. Plus, life problems got in the way a bit, so I kind of had even less motive to carry on. Then, I discovered this place was back so I rejoined and have been visiting ever since, wondering if you'd be back. Now that you are I've suddenly got a little of that spark back again!

The <insert name> through drinking parties after the defeat at Antioch and kept at it until Marc Anthony and Cleopatra commited suicide. Not long after Sunda found himself in the party capital of the Ancient World -Rome. It was here that Chroniclers say that he began to work on a liquor he called Boom Boom. It was called Boom Boom because the next day that’s the only thing that you could hear was “boom boom” inside your head. But although he loved a great party, Sunda was a good and loyal friend. If you were in trouble he would drop what he was doing and rush to help.

                        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.

                        The elder MacLeod is an enigma. He's a very serious player of the Immortal Game and a very good one. He has deep respect for its Rules and nuances, and is always calculating, staying one step ahead of his opponents. Unlike his younger kinsman Duncan, Connor MacLeod keeps his thoughts and feelings very much to himself, although occasionally he will let a smile or his trademark staccato laugh slip out. There are a few things that can penetrate his serious exterior -- the Scottish Highlands, the sea, and "good women." He's rarely happier than when he has a field of blooming heather or the deck of a fast ship beneath his feet. Connor venerates the memory of his first wife, Heather, but that has not prevented him from finding love several times since. The legendary Juan Sanchez Villa-Lobos Ramirez, his first teacher, helped show him how to strike a balance between serious Game player and lover of life. Although Connor MacLeod hasn't won The Game yet, you can bet he'll be a force to reckon with when The Gathering finally comes.

The pain, the loneliness, the endless fighting, the pointless butchery caused by the Game. His cheerful attitude in when he fought Slan Quince in Seattle was faked :
                        he pretended to be happy when he felt hollow inside. Ramirez was dead, Kastagir was dead, all the other heroes were too much in the shades of grey of the mortal world. Connor wanted respite from the Game and maybe he obtained it wherever he is hiding in present times.

                          Immortal Maiden and Jin Ke fought in one of the longest and most ragins fights ever recorded in Watcher history. While Jin Ke used to be one of the best blades of China an retained al his vigor, Immortal Maiden was a devious and tricky fighter who managed to take advantage of Jin Ke's weaknesses, eventually getting the upper hand. Jin Ke fell to his knees, muttering 'Ravenwood will come for you, your little war is over' before his head fell to the ground. The ensuing Quickening was a mighty one, triggering a sudden, raging storm over Taiwan and causing for several millions of Taiwanese dollars of property damage. After properly disposing of the bodies and giving Jin Ke the funeral he deserved, May-Ling Shen and Hideo Tanaka went in search for the Maiden had vanished without a trace. They are presumably looking out for their next targets, possibly in Japan or in Europe where the Immortals Word War is still going strong.

                          Met and befriended Khabul Khan


                          Watcher Research recorded that the Immortals Kane, Khabul Khan and Senghi Khan vanished in 1590 on Mount Niri, Japan, at the time that Master Nakano was listed as Missing believed Killed at the hands of Kane. 164 years later, the three Immortals resurfaced unexpectedly in Shansi province, China, where their chronicles were to cross that of the fearsome Spartan Immortal Deoneces. At the time, he was travelling in the Far East when he heard wild tales of three Chinese gods walking among the people of Shansi province, bringing fear and terror and demanding tribute.

                          Deoneces went to investigate and discovered countless towns and villages living in fear of the God of War, Huan-Ti and his servants, Chao Kung Ming, the demi-God of War, and Chin-Chiang Fyu-ya, the punisher of the gods. Suspecting the work of Immortals, Deoneces tried to convince the people that the gods were not gods at all, merely men posing as gods, but the fearful population had seen too much to be convinced by the words of not just a stranger, but a barbarian. Determined to prove his words were true, Deoneces had to show the cowed populace the tyrants were not gods. He discovered that once a month, Huan-Ti (or Kane, as the Spartan was soon to learn) sent one of his henchmen to collect tribute from the villages; a virgin girl for Kane's harem.

                          Deoneces was there when Senghi Khan, posing as Chin-Chiang, rode into one of those villages to collect tribute. The Spartan challenged the Mongol and the two fought in the village square in front of the villagers and Khan's warriors. Deoneces overpowered Khan, and there, in full view of everyone, he struck off his head. The Quickening lit up the night sky and convinced the people, including Khan's own terrified warriors, that Deoneces was the Slayer of Gods. Filled with hope, young men and women from the surrounding towns and villages flocked to him and pledged themselves to him. Deoneces began training them in the Spartan way, preparing them for a fight he knew was coming.

                          When four weeks passed and Kane had not seen or heard from Senghi and word reached him that rebellion was brewing among the people, fermented by a stranger who had apparently "slain a god," he knew an Immortal was involved and dispatched Khabul Khan and his best warriors to deal with the problem. But Deoneces was waiting for him. He lured Khabul and his elite cavalry into one of the villages and then sprung a deadly trap: hordes of archers emerged from hiding and a third of Khabul's warriors fell in the first volleys, before phalanxes of spearmen surrounded the rest and put them to the sword. Amid the slaughter, Deoneces confronted and slew Khabul Khan. He sent the severed head to Kane in his mountain fortress, before marching to confront the false god.

                          Deoneces and his army laid siege to Kane's fortress for a week before its defences crumbled and the Spartan and his army stormed inside. While his well-trained army of peasants and former warriors of Kane sacked the castle, Deoneces confronted Kane. It was an epic battle, fought through the corridors and on the battlements, finally ending in Kane's own thrown room. Eventually, the Spartan's strength and relentlessness was enough to overcome Kane, who sank to his knees, his swordarm severed at the elbow, fear etched on his face for the first time, but defiant to the end. The Spartan's sword brought Kane's reign of terror to an end and the Quickening destroyed the throne room, set fire to the drapes and left the entire fortress ablaze.

                          In the chaos that followed, Deoneces slipped quietly away into the night, but his legend lives on in Shansi province to this day as the "Bringer of Lightning, Slayer of Gods."

                            Zai's quest for the origins of immortality began one thousand years ago in a remote valley near Beijing, looking for the location of ruins indicating the origins of the source of immortality : the answers to why do the immortals exist, why do they keep on living when empires and civilisations crumble around them, why do they keep fighting each others to death. Zai has heard of ancient scroll, mythical texts telling of the origins of the Game and the story of the first immortals who searched for answers. Zia has been combing the four corners of the world, present on every digging sites possble, in the hope of making his dream come true : to find the origins of immortals. A foolish quest, but we wish him well and wait for him to find out. We are as impatient as he is.

                            Dubbed ‘Deathmask’, little Flower of Carnage aka Kyala was a brillant and crafty assassin who murdered her way across the armies of Manchuria during the Russo-Japanese war and also killed Russian officers and soldiers, spreading tales of terror of an unkillable ghost who wreaked havoc wherever she went. Her motives for killing aren’t known to us but we suspect her to simply be a psychopathic immortal manipulated by Matsuhiro Kanagawa, using her thrillseeking personality to create chaos in this beginnig of the 20th century.
                            Kyala disappeared in 1905, but for four hundred years she was the nemesis of the ennemies of Japan.

                            Encounter with Matsuhiro Kanagawa who sought to
                            know the power of illusion-casting, was denied by
                            Nakano

                            Nakano's first death dates from 743 BC when he was an old monk trying to discover the secret of immortality so that he could benefit mankind with his knowledge; he had heard tales of immortal men and women who rose from the grave hafter having been struckl by lightning bolts. Nakano learn one of the most important lessons of his life during a stormy night when he was electrocuted by a lightning bolt and was resurrected. Since then, Nakano has crossed paths with many Immortals, including his first teacher, the ancient Sun Tzu who studied the arts of war and taught the rules of immortality to Nakano. Nakano studied Zen Buddhism under Nichiren the monk in the 1200s AD and became one of the ancient Japanese wise men known as "Yamabushis" who taught their Way to a select few. He has trained many mortals and Immortals over the centuries, including one Juan Sanchez Villalobos Ramirez (aka Tak Ne of Egypt) who learned from Nakano his metallurgy skills. Nakano was also a great sorceror and mastered the mystical power of illusion. Some of his more ambitious students, such as Kane, have desired this power and tried to kill him. His last student was Connor MacLeod, whose spiritual education he expanded, making him a better warrior, adding some illusion tricks to his skills. Nakano disappeared from Watcher records after Kane’s attempt at killing him, but we dought the Mongol managed to kill him : an old devil like Nakano with illusion-casting powers cannont be put down so easily. We believe he is still living outhere, drinking to the health of past friends and enjoying his immortality.

                            A violent character with uncompromising morals, placing the Law before everything, possibly to atone for the countless cimes he comitted in his “youth” : Kobayashi killed Immortal holy men from Japan on orders from Matsuhiro Kanagawa who sought to destroy Master Nakano Yodarushi and thus sent his disciple after any Immortal shrine keepr he could find, helped by hired muscle who would forcefully take the unfortunate Immortal out of Holy Grounds where Kobayashi would execute him or her. So far, four that we know of were murdered, all from different religions in Japan, including a Christian priest, two shintoist monks and a zen buddhist who studied under Nichiren in the 13th century. All innocent men, none of them Nakano Yodarushi.

                            Kobayashi got a change of heart after his encounter with a “Holy Man” in 1952, whose Quickening altered his personality and changed a bandit into a champion of the Law. The identity of the Holy Man isn’t known to us but clues point us to Master Nakano Yodarushi, missing since the 17th century and whose illusion-casting powers match the Holy Man’s : apparently an Immortal able to blend so much with his environment that it looked like magic. Who knows. Kobayash, a master hunter, found him anyway and killed him. The Q. Kobayashi received is called a “Light Quickening’, contrary to a Dark Quickening that changes a good man into an evil Immortal, the Light one does the opposite. Kobayashi has been at war with his teacher Kanagawa ever since, before the latter’s death in 2006.The Law hasn’t had a champion like him since the days when Mako was taming the wild west in the 19th century or the state of Texas in the 1990’s.
