c 1 CE

I leave the Four Horsemen for good this time...
(Revelation 6:8)

Baby-faced little psycho.
I was cruicified, and the world got mad, bad Caligula instead of Petronius.

c 1-100 CE

Rome - I was a connoisseur of the cooking of Marcus Gavius Apicius, early Rome's favorite cook. What he could do with lentils and chestnuts... mmm...

Rome - I was Remus, a slave — er, advisor — in the household of Roman Senator Valerius Petronius. We were trying to make Petronius the next emperor. Unfortunately, I said no to Petronius' wife, Druscilla the Emasculator, she cried rape, and I got nailed to a cross instead. That's the last time I got involved in politics... and the last time I got between a married couple.

June 1816

Switzerland - Partied and read poetry with Lord Byron, Percy Shelley and Mary Wollstonecraft under the alias of Dr. Adams. I was Byron's first teacher. Byron's Watcher Dora Rossi speculates that I was a lover to both Mary and Byron. Byron kills Hans Kershner, the jealous husband of one of his conquests. Mary witnesses the Quickening and Byron's resurrection from a mortal wound. I tell her about Immortals and she uses this and a dream she had as the basis for her novel, Frankenstein.
(The Modern Prometheus, Watcher Chronicles CD-ROM)


between 1816 and 1900

Arizona, US - As Ben Adams, I pull a scam with the McQuarrie brothers but that whore Veronica, who not only participated in the scam but swore she loved me, tips of Sheriff Willy Brunton. The next thing I know, he and his posse are hunting me down in the hopes of making me the guest of honor at a public lynching in the backwater mining town of Fraziers Well.
I finally escape by jumping over the rim of a canyon but still die. I'm found by Little Crow, 10-year-old Indian boy, who of course tells his father Crow's Feather and their tribe all about me. However, the dead coming back to life doesn't surprise them because they have legends of long-lived beings who can only be killed among lightning and fire. Fortunately for me, their stories also say that these beings are messengers of the Great Spirit and should be treated with honor.
("Postcards from Alexa: The Man with No Name"/Evening at Joe's)

He couldn't keep a gang together back then either.
