Morgan D'Estaing was born in 1783 in Gambias, France.  A foundling found in the wealthy D'Estaing family, Morgan was raised by adoptive parents who thought they would never have children of their own. It was only much later their son was born and later on a daughter were born. Morgan seemed to have a great life but things changed in the years to come.

In 1803, Philippe D'Estaing made an announcement to the family about who would control the estate. He told Morgan that it would be his younger brother, Bernard D'Estaing, that would inherit since he is of D'Estaing blood. Morgan believed that he should be the one since he was the oldest. Morgan's father told him he would get a monthly allowance, but Morgan was none to pleased, and walked away. Later on that night, Morgan went to his brother's bedroom and tried to smother him with a pillow. Philippe was walking by the room and heard a muffled scream, he went in to the room and saw Morgan trying to kill his brother. Philippe stabbed Morgan to stop him. Morgan died. Later, in a coffin, he revived as an Immortal. Another Immortal, Xavier St. Cloud, sees potential for his kind of training in the new Immortal. He introduced himself to Morgan and told him what he was. Morgan became Xavier's student, but pushed for immediate revenge against his family. Xavier told Morgan that he must be patient, that was his first lesson, and they both leave.

Because they were surrounded by mortals, Duncans soldiers, the Highlander couldn't challenge Xavier and he and Morgan walked away.

Morgan was devoted to Xavier and sought vengence against MacLeod after he beheaded his teacher. In 1996, Paris, he was was a jewel thief. He ran into Duncan MacLeod, and tried to kill him.
