Maid Marian, Marfisa, Mark Jeffrey (“Big Mark”)

English convict sent to Australia. Described as “A terror to those in authority. He always fights against injustice…”.

As a child with nowhere to live and no money he took to burglary but was caught and convicted to fifteen years transportation to a penal colony. Jeffery was in many disputes over his rights to food and rations while awaiting transportation being severely punished after his lack of rations resulted in his violent attacks.

After a long and stormy voyage, Jeffery worked torturously on Norfolk Island before being sent to Separate Prison in Port Arthur for six months over more controversy over provisions.

Eventually he was freed but shortly after he was involved in fight in a pub and convicted of manslaughter sentencing him back into the prison in Port Arthur for Life. Since Jeffery has spent extensive periods at a time in solitary imprisonment wearing leg-irons. Jeffery saw this as an injustice so he wrecked and smashed his prison cell and attempted to murder a guard.

The authorities were exhausted by his violent outbursts and sent him to the Isle of the Dead as a grave digger. While living on the Isle of the Dead Mark encountered a devil who appeared and spoke to him. Jeffery was so disturbed by the experience that he immediately requested to be removed from the island.

Jeffery was then sent to Hobart where he continually fell victim to injustice and found himself several

more convictions of assault. , Marie de Médicis, Mary Frances Jeffries, Mary Poppins, Mary Read, Matthew Hopkins, Milady de Winter, Daniel Montbars “Montbars the Exterminator”, Charles François d’Angennes, Marquis de Maintenon, Henry Morgan, Ursula Southill “Mother Shipton” ,Much the Miller’s Son, Muma Padurii,

Christopher Marlowe

Christopher Marlowe is a noted poet and playwright. The epitome of the maxim: “Live fast, die young, and leave a good-looking body of work.”

His father was a shoemaker in the city of Canterbury. He attended the King’s School in Canterbury and graduated from Cambridge. The University hesitated in awarding him his Master’s Degree due to suspicions of Catholic leanings and his frequent absences from class; but the Privy Council, close advisers to the throne, intervened, citing his “faithful dealings” and “good service” to the Queen.

Marlowe served the Queen as a spy, infiltrating seditious religous groups and embarking on espionage missions to Holland. In addition to his work on Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Marlowe is a brawler, a heretic and a homosexual, and on various occasions had been accused of counterfeiting, dueling, atheism and dabbling in the occult. What is known is that in the next seven years he wrote a string of some of the greatest plays in the theater; possibly in English literature. Among his plays were Tamburlaine, The Jew of Malta, and perhaps most famously, The Tragic History of Doctor Faustus. After the Privy Council issued an order for Marlowe’s arrest on a charge of heresy on the strength of a document found in his house and purportedly written by him. As the Queen was the official head of the Church of England, heresy was for practical purposes also considered an act of treason. He appeared before the Council and was instructed to “give daily attendance to their Lordships.” On May 30, he was visiting with friends in the town of Deptford, when a brawl broke out over the bill and he was stabbed to death. It has been speculated that he was assassinated by political enemies. However Marlowe faked his death and continued writing for several more years under the name of William Shakespeare. Ingram Frizier, the friend who stabbed Marlowe to death over a bar tab, was given a Pardon by the Queen. Frizier, as well as the two witnesses to Marlowe’s death, Robert Poley and Nicholas Skeres, all have connections to Sir Francis Walsingham the royal spymaster.

The Werewolves of Poligny, (Pierre Burgot, Michel Verdun, And Philibert Montot) These werewolves were in reality feral serial killers who preyed upon rural peasants and city dwellers alike. In the 16th century, a French peasant named Pierre Burgot came under the Satanic thrall of several black-clad figures, including a man named Michel Verdun. According to Burgot’s testimony, Verdun gave him an ointment that transformed him from a man into a wolf. Along with a third man named Philibert Montot, Burgot and Verdun became known as the Werewolves of Poligny, and they were collectively responsible for the murders of several children. After a bloody Verdun was caught and tortured, he confessed to the crimes and implicated Burgot and Montot. In turn, Burgot claimed under torture that Montot and Verdun had forced him to renounce God in order to become a vile werewolf killer.

He built the great Ulugh Beg Observatory in Samarkand. It was considered by scholars to have been one of the finest observatories in the Islamic world at the time and the largest in Central Asia.

Zu Shenatir The crimes of Zu Shenatir occur in Aden, Yemen, Shenatir’s city, has long been linked with the biblical story of Cain and Abel. Unlike Cain, the world’s first murderer, Shenatir killed purely for pleasure. Exactly how many people he killed has never been recorded, but records state that he was a wealthy pedophile who sodomized his victims and then killed them by throwing them out the window. Shenatir is often incorrectly labeled as the first serial killer ever recorded. While that’s not true, he’s certainly one of history’s first lust killers. A voracious appetite for sex seems to have been Shenatir’s driving motive, which makes his ultimate demise all the more fitting. According to certain sources, one of his intended victims, a young man named Zerash, stabbed Shenatir through his anus, thus giving the monster a taste of his own sick medicine.
