Reagan Cole was beaten to death by bandits in 1531, and awoke as an Immortal. Her first teacher was the Immortal, Amanda Darieux. She found her calling in bounty hunting. Something she has pursued for over 165 years.In 1833, she met Duncan MacLeod. She posed as Countess Ludmilla Albertina Katushka Tcheka of Hungary and seduced him, before she called the guards who arrested him. Reagan, who had lured him into this trap, was appalled that Duncan's alleged high treason was in fact the cuckolding of a duke. Reagan dressed as a nun and attacked his transport, and managed to free Duncan, but he was resentful and he left her tied to the ducal carriage.
In 1998, Reagan dressed as police officer in a strip show to get at the criminal, Raphael Vega. They grabbed him, but he was then shot by the assassin, Jack Kendall. After this disaster, Reagan decided to take a vacation. She flew to Paris, and arranged to meet her old friend MacLeod.
She watched as two men killed a photographer. She drove Brian Murphy, a model from the shoot, home. In his apartment, however, they were met by the murderers who were looking for his film. After questioning by Rowan Mitchell, an agent of Interpol, Reagan took the film from a waste basket and developed it.Reagan recognized the assassin, Jack Kendall on one of the photos and immediately suspected that his presence in Paris with an EU conference was not unrelated. She discovered a bomb and Jack finally unmasked himself, wired with explosives, but Reagan shot him and they both fell out the window to be killed by the explosion
