For the MES' Accord Venue
His life as a Mortal.
Event under this happened after his Enlightenment.
Same as Prime Timeline, only sooner.
Where he lived, when
Stephen left China to explore the world. His first stop was the little island chain across the sea.
Stephen lived in France in the Era of Joan of Arc. He was never actually able to meet the Maid of Orleans, but was inspired by her tale, and took it as a cautionary one as well.
Met Annie at an Accord function, and has stayed with her in Puerto Rico since then.
He was born and raised in London, a son of a servant in a Lord's household.
Forcibly recruited into the English forces of the King's Crusade, Stephen survived all the way to the end of it. However, in the last battle of the war, he was taken prisoner, and sent to the east.
Stephen was sent from Master to Master, being forced into servitude, traveling slowly east, eventually making it to Tibet.
During this time, Stephen lived in a Taoist temple in Tibet, rarely leaving. He did grow to be more of a teacher to the newer residents, as he quickly picked up on the wisdom and power offered in Daoist teachings.
Stephen attends the opening of the Globe Theatre, when the Lord Chamberlain's Men perform William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar.
Stephen stayed on with Annie while she finished out her contract as a privateer. He proved most useful as both a healer and weapon.
Stephen spent much of this time in war zones, healing those he could, and working against the Axis powers from the Shadow.
Stephen met a very young Athena Megalospyropoulos at the boarding school she attended in Germany, where he taught history.
Met Memeferre for the first time when the Arisened broke into his temple and stole a relic from their care.
Stephen, while in meditation, has a vision that allows him to pursue enlightenment. He concentrates on that, until his mortal death.
Some of Annie's old friends, seeing her youthful again, gathered her up and started burning her at the stake. A Hunter, who was on her trail, was there, performing an exorcism, which had the possibility of actually draining her before she died. In saving her, Steven's body was destroyed, and he took heavy spiritual damage, causing him to retreat deep into the Spirit Realm to recover.
Steven finally manages to safely recreate and inhabit his body.
Stephen watched as a vampire got close to a noble family, and subtly influenced him not to touch the girl he was intending to Embrace.
Said vampire quietly left the country very soon after the incident.
While following an Awakened Servant Stephen happened upon Mike McConnell, who was also hunting him. Mike didn't know about the Truth yet.
Together, they took down the servant, Stephen healed Mike, and took his leave.
Stephen's students, Matthew, Jack, and Emily were at the regional council meeting when John Langley attacked.
He was on a scouting mission, so wasn't in attendance when his students were murdered by Langley's forces.
Stephen followed some of his fellow Gatekeepers to a memorial for a fallen cell in Albany New York. Met Annie Again.
Stephen attempts his Ritual, chasing what he hopes to be Enlightenment, a transcendence beyond the physical. He succeeds, dying while he meditates on a locus.
Steven returns to his body, the ravages age sliding off of him like a snake shedding skin. He now looks better than he did in his prime, with all the experience of his already long life.
Annie's captain made the mistake of attacking the ship which Steven happened to be travelling on. It ended better for his ship than hers.
Stephen had booked passage on Annie's ship. During a storm, Annie was swept off deck while helping her crew. Stephen jumped in after her, and when she woke, they were on an island, where they spent almost 2 months waiting for rescue. It was during their stay that they became romantically involved.
Stephen starts teaching Annie what she needs to know to start her journey in Purification. The first few years were aboard her ship, and later, after she retired, he took her to one of his safe houses to finish her training.
Annie, his student and lover, achieves her Purification.
Gabriel (James Ruggiero) drew Stephen's attention by his staunch defense of Chinese immigrants working on the railroad.
He approached him and trained him in several areas, but he had a stubborn prideful streak that kept him from being ready.
After training him in how to learn, Stephen left Gabriel to study on his own, keeping an eye on him from afar.
When he was almost ready, Stephen sent him on a spirit quest to 'wrestle immortality' from a spirit. The quest finally broke his pride, leading him to his purification in the Shadow.
Stephen found 3 young children who had been heavily injured trying to stop a lynching of a young black boy.
They had tried to stop the boy's hanging by cutting the rope. In response, the mob beat them almost to death. They succeeded on stopping the hanging.
When Stephen found them, he healed them, and took them in. Over the next 5 decades, he trained them, educated them, and eventually all 3 of them succeeded in the Purification ritual.
Their names were Matthew, Jack, & Emily
Stephen stepped in and saved a little girl from getting ran over by a car. And cars in those days could make pancakes out of children like nobody's business.
During a trip in the Shadow, Stephen was trapped by a powerful spirit. Eventually, the spirit was destroyed, and the energies powering it dissipated, allowing him to escape back to his own body.
