In 1443, Lyman Kurlow was hanged as a horse thief. The next few centuries, he made his way as a thief and murderer, until he took a young Immortal, Peter Matlin as a student in 1671. The two combined forces and remained in partnership until 1994, continuing their joint criminal career. Kurlow's trademark was a white strand of hair. His preferred method of operation was to kill people by strangling them with a scarf or piece of cloth. 1805 Kurlow and Matlin met a young English nobleman, who wouldn't inherit any of his family's estate because he was not firstborn, but the second child. Since he did not join the army of the Church, it was easy for Kurlow and Matlin to incite him to steal the family treasure and then to seek his fortune in the colonies. Before he could make that journey, however, he was strangled by Lyman Kurlow. Kurlow and Matlin laid him in a boat and set fire to it. Conveniently Johnny, a soldier who had recently returned home, stumbled by drunk and was knocked unconscious by Matlin and Kurlow. They put the farewell letters of the victim in the case. Matlin and Kurlow rightly speculated that Johnny would be accused of their crime. Shortly after they came back into the city to witness the execution of Duncan MacLeod, who sacrificed himself for his friend Johnny. They searched for MacLeod's grave, but found him already alive before Duncan asked Kurlow to a duel. Kurlow lured MacLeod into a labyrinth of hedges, and disappeared after several attempts to kill him from behind. It seems Kurlow felt that he was not ready for this fight.

In 1994, Lyman Kurlow learned that his old friend Peter Matlin was decapitated by Duncan MacLeod in battle. He went to MacLeod to take revenge, but they were disturbed by the attorney Waverly, who tried to blackmail Duncan. Kurlow proposed a railway tunnel as a meeting place for their duel, however Waverly appeared there at the appointed time. Waverly was obsessed with the idea of ​​killing Kurlow for Duncan, if Duncan would kill his wife. Waverly shot Kurlow, but when Kurlow awoke, he strangled the lawyer. When Duncan arrived, he found only Waverly's corpse. Kurlow went to the house of Waverly and took his wife hostage. Like he predicted, Duncan appeared a little later. It came to a final duel between Duncan and Kurlow at the pool. Kurlow was a dangerous opponent but Duncan defeated him and took his head.

Kurlow and Matlin were both assigned the same Watcher, Michael Davis till 1994.
