Connor MacLeod was born in the year 1518 in Glenfinnan, Scotland near the shores of Loch Shiel. During a battle between the Clan MacLeod and the Clan Fraser in 1536, he faced an evil Immortal referred to as The Kurgan and was dealt what should have been a fatal blow.
When Connor did not die, the townspeople (including his family) believed his recovery was the work of witchcraft and threatened to burn him at the stake. Connor's kinsman Angus instead demanded that he only be banished. Connor wandered around the land until he met Heather MacDonald, the daughter of a blacksmith. The two fell in love and married. In 1541, he met an Immortal named Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez who became Connor's mentor and taught him the way of Immortals and the way of The Game.
Ramírez taught Connor the famous rule of the immortals: "There can be only one." Connor, Ramírez, and others like them were destined to fight each other until only one was left. By beheading another Immortal, the winner would gain the fallen Immortal's strength, and the last alive would have the power of every Immortal that ever existed, a mysterious power beyond comprehension known as The Prize. One night, The Kurgan, while Connor was absent, found his home, killed Ramírez, and raped Heather. Decades passed and Heather finally died of old age. It was at this point that Connor left Scotland to explore the world. Connor MacLeod led many different lives under a variety of aliases, constantly keeping his Immortality a secret. In 1985, MacLeod found himself living in New York in the guise of Russell Nash, an antiques dealer. Connor had to deal with being a supect of several beheadings. He started to fall in love with forensics expert Brenda Wyatt. MacLeod then faced against his ancient enemy The Kurgan. After The Kurgan kidnapped Brenda, Connor faced and defeated him. He then returned to Scotland with Brenda.
