Created by High Lord Kalarus Brencis of Kalare, several hundred of his people are controlled by Discipline Collars, also called Slave Collars. (see Cursor's Fury, chapter 13-14)


Immortals are collared in childhood and gradually driven to the point of insanity to fanatically serve their master and his son—Kalarus Brencis Minoris. These warriors are raised from childhood to serve their master, and are conditioned to feel almost no pain or fear. The Immortals fight on even after losing limbs or suffering fatal wounds, with decapitation being one of the few reliable ways to kill them.

Immortals, so-named after an inscription on their discipline collars "Immortalis", were fanatically loyal, all but immune to pain, and nearly indestructible. (see Cursor's Fury)

Kalarus taught this slaving technique to his son, Kalarus Brencis Minoris. That decision had unintended consequences during the Vord War.

Discipline Collar / Slave Collar: Child grows into an Immortal

Night of Red Stars[]

The Immortals were first seen during the events of book 3, Cursor's Fury, on the Night of Red Stars. Immortals were sent to Ceres to Vorello’s Pool dining grotto, to assassinate important individuals, powerful Citizens of nobility and military structure, and members of the Dianic League, an anti-slavery organization, including High Ladies of Rhodes and Phrygia (chapter 13-14). Amara, Bernard, Isana, and Fade were involved in the initial attack, with Fade receiving a life-threatening injury. Even Centurion Giraldi was there. High Lady Placidus Aria was kidnapped and held as political hostage, along with the teenage daughter of Atticus Quentin.

This major attack initiated Kalarus’s attempted coup/ Aleran Civil War and the Canim invasion.
