  • Does anyone have the Immortal bios?

    I think they were on the Endgame movie website. Does anyone still have that information? I'm talking about, like, the bios for all of the Immortals in the movie (Cracker Bob, etc.).

      Yeah... that's pretty different. And impossible.

      Yeesh. Did the people who did the bios on the website even know what happens in the movie? I guess not.

        Killed by Highwaymen is my take on Kate's background because Duncan isn't as stupid as he is shown to be in the movie.
        Kell's background is based on sound research, I didn't want a third Highlander born in Glenfinnan.

          Oh wait, this isn't the information from the Endgame website? The one with the timeline and all that? Or are you saying YOU made the website?

            Winston, Kell and Kate I made up, the rest is according to the website. I had no hand in writing what was on it.
            I care very little about the canonical universe to be frank, way too inconsistent and with dumb movies to boot. We rebooted the entire franchise with Apollo1, at least in the chronicles we wrote for the canonical characters : Duncan doesn't kill so many Immortals, the movies timelines are negated, so is the Raven. Important parts of the series are still there however... but different.

              Andrew's intent is to get canon data, though.

                I understand. The info on Jin Ke, Manny and Cracker Bob is canonical. The rest is a matter of imagination. Wayne Guthrie mentoring Manny is an extrapolation from my part, his original teacher was never named.

                      The oldest I can find is a revision on wikipedia which might be from the official site originally but there's no source mentioned: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php...ell's_Gang


                      Kate's bio is surprisingly absent.

                      Jacob Kell's Gang

                      Jin Ke Highlander character Jin Ke
                      Age 2265 (at time of death)
                      Found 263 BC, Wei, China
                      Mentors Jacob Kell
                      Portrayed by Donnie Yen
                      First appearance Highlander: Endgame Movies 4

                      Jin Ke was soldier serving the Chinese King (and later, Emperor) Qin Shi Huang and was charged to protect the workers who built the Great Wall of China from nomad attacks. A highly-skilled unarmed fighter, Jin Ke's preferred weapon is a spear. Dissatisfied with the emperor and his bloody actions, he took part in a conspiracy to assassinate him. The conspiracy, however, was discovered and all its members were killed, except Jin, who awakened as an Immortal. He thought this new life would enable him to amend his faults, so he decided to live honorably, defending the right causes and fighting evil. In 19th century China, he met Jacob Kell, who convinced him that honor existed only in victory. Swayed by Kell's words, Jin Ke chose to become the first of his followers. He was used as a backup plan when the remaining members of the gang failed to accomplish their mission. This was seen when the gang tried to kill Duncan MacLeod. After Winston, Cracker Bob, Carlos and Manny were unable to kill him, they stepped aside so that Ke could fight Duncan. However, Duncan was as strong as Ke and their fight was interrupted by Kell. He was the first member to be killed in the gang’s “last supper," and the only one to raise a sword against his former leader. Despite this, Jacob Kell killed him effortlessly. Jin Ke appears to be a highly fictionalized version of Jing Ke, a soldier who failed to assassinate Qin Shi Huang.


                      "Cracker" Bob Highlander character "Cracker" Bob
                      Age 115 (at time of death)
                      Found 1887
                      Mentors Jacob Kell
                      Portrayed by Ian Paul Cassidy
                      First appearance Highlander: Endgame Movies 4

                      "Cracker" Bob was owner of an explosive and eccentric personality. It is unknown where he originally came from or what his real name was. He met Immortal Jacob Kell, a former priest who was pursuing a centuries-long vendetta against Connor MacLeod in Georgia in 1926. Traveling through the South, Kell recognized Bob as a pre-Immortal. When Bob proposed to lead him to his next destination, Kell accepted, curious to see what the latter was preparing for him. At the city's exit, Bob tried to rob him, but Kell beat him easily. Amused, Kell decided to keep him close. Bob then became the second member of his group after Jin Ke. His weapon of choice became a heavy wooden club covered in spikes and he started to wear eccentric clothes (probably made by Faith, who was a fashion designer). He was the second member executed by Kell in the gang's "final supper". Before being beheaded, Bob could do nothing but smile at Kell, realising he and the other members had been tricked.


                      Winston Highlander character Winston
                      Age 168 (at time of death)
                      Found 1834, Jamaica
                      Mentors Jacob Kell
                      Portrayed by Oris Erhuero
                      First appearance Highlander: Endgame Movies 4

                      Winston was born in Jamaica in 1834, and was raised by former slave parents. In 1865, he was witness to the brutal repression used by English troops to stop the Jamaican rebellion. He would see his parents die before his eyes. Insane with rage, he attacked the soldier responsible for their death and “died” from a bayonet through the heart. After becoming Immortal, he turned into a frightening adversary for the colonists. After the island’s independence, he became a mercenary. In North Africa, during World War II, Winston met and joined Jacob Kell’s gang. He later became the leader of a network of marijuana smugglers in New York, under Kell's command. In 1972, he discovered among the network's members an Immortal named Carlos. Carlos would also join the gang. Winston lead the members on their missions. When they failed it was up to Jing Ke to finish the job, as seen in the attack on Duncan MacLeod, when Jing Ke had to intervene. He was the third member to be executed by Kell in their "last supper".


                      Carlos Highlander character Carlos
                      Age 213 (at time of death)
                      Found 1789, South Carolina,U.S.
                      Mentors Jacob Kell
                      Portrayed by Damon Dash
                      First appearance Highlander: Endgame Movies 4

                      Carlos was born a slave in South Carolina in 1789. He became Immortal after being lynched by a local vigilante group at the time of a slave rebellion. Carlos would then kill several slave owners and racists. He would also attack Ku Klux Klan members. If by chance, he was “killed” doing the misdeeds, it would give him a certain pleasure to reappear in front of his killers and terrify them before killing them. He wasn't a big lover of swords preferring to use guns against other Immortals. In 1972, in New York, he was part of a marijuana smuggling network, lead by Immortal Winston. This would lead him to Jacob Kell, with whom Winston was allied. The gang served his purpose of not having to fight with swords and within the gang he was safe from other Immortals. During the gang's attack against Duncan MacLeod, Carlos decided to shot MacLeod through a window, enabling him to escape from certain death. Unpleased by the fact of having disobeyed his orders by using a gun, Kell taunted Carlos to attack him. Carlos attacked him and was beheaded within seconds.


                      Manny Highlander character Manny
                      Age 75 (at time of death)
                      Found 1927, Hawaii
                      Mentors Jacob Kell
                      Portrayed by Vernon Rieta
                      First appearance Highlander: Endgame Movies 4

                      Manny was a young Hawaiian who in 1965 joined the United States Army during the Vietnam War. The young Private was terrified of being killed, unaware of the fact that he was a pre-Immortal. His commander, who was an Immortal, sensed that Manny was a pre-Immortal and tried to reassure him by saying that the bullets couldn’t do anything to him. But Manny, however, didn’t believe him and was certain that his fate was to die in Vietnam. That is until, one day, his regiment was attacked by the Viet Cong. The Viet Cong artillery decimated all the troops. Amazed, Manny reawakened as an Immortal and was able to survive. Unfortunately, his commander, despite his immortality, was killed by the heavy artillery. He would later join Kell's gang, illusioned by Kell's charismatic spell. He was a low profile member within the gang contrastating with his more active team members Cracker Bob, Winston and Carlos. Just like his status in the group, he was executed by Kell in their "last supper".
