Colin MacLeod is an Immortal who has sought vengeance for the death of his wife for over twelve hundred years.
The immortal that would come to be known as Colin McCloud was born in Roman occupied Britain/Scotland over a thousand years before the present day adventure began. He was betrayed by his wife Moya, who was in turn betrayed by Roman General Marcus Octavius. Marcus was an immortal as well and was already part of "The Game" when Colin was killed. When Colin sought revenge for the death of his wife Marcus split his head in two with a sword blow but was unable to take his head as Colin's horse deposits him on holy ground, thus he is safe from Marcus while his wound heals. Over the next thousand years Marcus seeks to revive the glory of Rome and just behind him is Colin ready to seek revenge for his wife. Marcus comes close several times to killing Colin but fate always seems to be on Colin's side and manages to keep his head. While fighting in Scotland he is given the name McCloud for aiding the Clan McCloud against their rivals (led by Marcus). After dying (once again) he rises but before he can be stoned or burnt to death he is given a reprieve by the clan leader.
In the present (a post apocalyptic world) Marcus is once again "rebuilding Rome". Colin has killed an immortal, Malike, and seeks a bounty on his head. The two sense one another, Marcus not really surprised to see Colin. Kyala, Marcus' immortal lover, prepares to attack Colin but Marcus won't let her. He insists this is a private affair and she bows out. The two raise their swords and continue their personal battle. Colin's skill has improved but Marcus' abilities have increased as well. The duel moves to the exterior of the sky scrapper and Marcus causes Coling to fall off his sky scrapper rather than loose his head. Colin is saved by Daliah and slowly begins to heal. Colin decides to join the rebels in stopping Marcus' plans to eliminate the population and start over with new slaves. The two duel with Colin finally finding the inner strength he needs to best Marcus and cuts off the immortal's head. The quickening that is released destroys Marcus' virus and saves the people.
Colin leaves to go find his place in a world without the need for vengeance.
