Immortal who's who


Hugh Fitzcairn
One of Duncan's oldest friends - the pair first met in Italy in 1639 when Mac was trying to protect a nobleman's daughter from Fitz's advances. Although Fitz was beheaded by Kalas in 1995, we have subsequently seen him a number of times in flashback, while he also took on the role of Duncan's 'Guardian Angel' in the series finale.

Duncan and Connor (Christophe Lambert).

Connor MacLeod
Connor was Duncan's clansman, and was his first tutor. The pair met on the battlefield of Glen Fruin in 1625, when Connor found Duncan 'dead' on the battlefield, unsure of who - or what - he was. We only met Connor once during the TV run - in the series premiere 'The Gathering' (A1). The movie Endgame provided an explanation for his subsequent absence, when the original Highlander withdraws from the Game in 1992 after the death of Rachel, his friend since 1944 when he rescued her from the Nazis. He returns to the real world in 2000 when Jacob Kell flushes him out of sanctuary.
Darius was once the greatest warrior that ever lived, but his entire life turned when he received what can only be described as a 'Light' Quickening at the gates of Paris. He subsequently turned his back on the Game and lived out the remainder of his life as a monk for various religions. He met Duncan at the battle of Waterloo in 1815, and the pair remained friends ever after.

Carl Robinson (Bruce A Young).

Carl Robinson
Carl is around 150 years old, and a product of the Old South. Born a slave, he was tutored by Matthew McCormick after his Immortality was triggered, but the pair parted on bad terms when Carl took his chance to revenge himself on his old master. He first met Duncan in 1929 when the Highlander helped him escape a lynch mob, and by 1954 was in the process of carving out for himself a successful baseball career. Duncan next saw him in 1993, a disillusioned and (almost) broken man.
