Powers/Abilities: Cracker Bob was an immortal, capable of healing from virtually any injury in minutes. Even if a wound was instantly fatal, he would come back to life a short while later. The only way to permanently end his life was to decapitate him. Like other Immortals, he doesn't age. Cracker Bob could also sense the presence of other immortals, although he only got a vague sense of their proximity, not where or who they were. When he killed other immortals through decapitation, he received their life essence in the form of a "Quickening", a sort of electrical light show. Centuries of practice made him a skilled fighter. His weapon of choice was a heavy wooden club covered in spikes.

History: Cracker Bob was an immortal who fell in with Jacob Kell, a former priest who was pursuing a centuries long vendetta against Connor MacLeod. Along with other immortals who had fallen under Kell's charismatic spell, he attacked a Sanctuary run by the mysterious Watchers, slaughtering them. He then watched as Kell slew the helpless immortals held comatose within the Sanctuary, sparing only Connor, who had gone there to seek a respite from all the death in his life.

Kell next targeted Connor's clansman and only surviving friend, Duncan MacLeod. Although rules of Immortal combat dictated that Immortals must not gang up in a fight with each other, Kell's men ignored this, and attacked Duncan en masse. Their target barely escaped with his life. A few days later Kell gathered his followers together for supper...a last supper. During the meal he leapt on the table, grabbed his swords, and swiftly decapitated his own followers, absorbing their life essences to make himself stronger for the impending battle with Duncan MacLeod.
