The term used
to describe the ongoing battle between Immortals to get 'a head' of
the others, so to speak.
The period when
all surviving Immortals will be drawn together to battle for The Prize
the MacLeod clan. It's situated on the shores of Loch Shiel, in the
highlands of Scotland. The only time the Highlander TV series
actually filmed in Scotland was for the fourth-season opener (D1,
student of Darius who was disgusted by his former mentor's move away
from violence after a 'Light Quickening' (see L)
1,500 years before. Grayson had been killing Darius' students - mortal
or Immortal - ever since, until he came up against one Duncan MacLeod
(A13, 'Band of Brothers').
Charming - but utterly ruthless - Immortal
who attempts to seduce Amanda into stealing an expensive diamond for
him in return for, well, nothing really as he also wants her head (R11,
'The Devil You Know').
No Immortal may take the head of another on Holy
Ground. There is one recorded instance of this happening, and that was
at Pompeii. You can guess when.
A sort of Mother Teresa
to younger Immortals (including one 9th Century urchin better known as
Amanda)... only without the wimple. One of these, Luther - see
L - took her head.
Big mistake when Dunc's around (B19,
A Watcher who decided that all Immortals were evil and
needed be wiped out through his renegade organisation (A22,
'The Hunters'; B1, 'The
Watchers', and so on).
