Kanis 1700s

Kanis in 1785

He used them to wound other Immortals or Mortals so that he could kill them with ease. At the year 1785 Kanis was hunting a little boy with his dogs, as Duncan MacLeod interfered and killed one of them. Kanis wanted to take revenge, but got arrested by the guards of the Duchess. That night the dogs tried to free Kanis and killed one man. The Duchess orders Kanis to be executed. Right before he is hanged he swore to take revenge against Duncan someday. Kanis is buried but revives soon afterwards.


In 1995, Kanis tracked down and beheaded the Immortal, David Coleman, with the aid of his dogs. Shortly thereafter he planned his revenge against Duncan MacLeod. Kanis sent one of his dogs to let Duncan know that he was after him. Duncan met Kanis at a cemetery and offered him a fight, Kanis answered that he would face him soon enough. Kanis, with protection from his dogs left.

A few days later Duncan was heading to the jogging trail and left his sword inside his car. He found himself surrounded by Kanis' dogs, Duncan managed to escape, but one dog was killed.

The next day, Kanis headed to a dog kennel and talked with Miss Meach the owner. He tried to force her into selling a female Rottweiler to him. As Duncan appeared, Kanis quickly left.  After MacLeod asked Meach if she was all right, he followed Kanis to a park nearby. Duncan offered to fight but Kanis pointed at a little boy who was playing with one of his dogs, and said that it would kill him when he gave a signal. Kanis taunted MacLeod and walked away. Duncan got back to the kennel and learned that Kanis wanted to buy a Rottweiler called Lucille.

Final fightEdit

Duncan was working in his house as he felt another Immortal, it was Kanis, who used his dogs again to attack him. Duncan quickly opened a door and revealed his secret weapon:Lucille, who happened to be in heat.  Kanis's dogs joined her, and Duncan closed the door. Kanis immediately attacked MacLeod, who got to his sword right on time. During the fight, Kanis retreated outside, and tried to run down the slope of the lawn. Before he could get away Duncan jumped in the air, twisted over Kanis's head, and beheaded him as he landed.

Kanis meets MacLeod in modern times

Peter Kanis was a rather cowardly person who used his dogs to tip contests in his favor, he also used them as a shield when another Immortal tried to attack him. He had a very eccentric way of dressing.
