** Rachel is an optimistic person and why shouldn't she be? She's got literally all the time in the world and all the wonders and adventures it contains to look forward to. There's no AgeWithoutYouth, and there is a community of similarly happy immortal people who [[MayflyDecemberRomance won't die on you]].
** Rachel has [[LackOfEmpathy a diminished or nonexistent ability to empathize with others]] and doesn't think of outliving everyone around her as a downside.

** Rachel is a GenkiGirl thrill seeker who regularly does incredibly stupid and dangerous stunts ''just because she can.''
* '''Zig Zagged''': Rachel swings between living up her immortality and endless {{Wangst}}ing about how much it sucks.

* '''Invoked''': Rachel is deliberately chosen to be made immortal because the being that grants this boon knows that her innate sense of optimism and good cheer would enable her to cope with it easier than someone else.

* '''Defied''': Rachel fears becoming a giggling immortal with no concept of life, death, or time, so she purposely experiences ''everything'' life throws at her, good and bad, without flinching.

** Rachel's good cheer is a StepfordSmiler cover she uses to keep her sane; otherwise, the [[WhoWantsToLiveForever horror of living forever]] would drive her mad as she witnesses the death of all her loved ones, and is left lonely despite the the number of people she meets.
** Rachel is constantly forced to find new and creative ways to keep her spirits up and find ways to avoid boredom, is constantly skipping town and having to avoid any meaningful relationships, forcing her to only engage in wild flings and abandoning her family and friends.
** Rachel only finds immortality fun because she's a narcissistic sociopath, has ''no'' loved ones and does not understand what all that fuss about them is, and finds amusement in her ability to escape consequences due to this. She has neither family nor friends, but {{mooks}} and sycophants instead, who are easily interchangeable.

** Rachel's immortality brings dark patches, but on the whole she still manages to roll with the punches and for the most part enjoy her life.
** Rachel's family and friends are ''also'' immortal; they live with her and travel with her. Her neighbors ''envy'' the close relationship forged by their shared eternity.
** Rachel only finds immortality fun because she's an AllLovingHero, and [[GoodFeelsGood finds fullfillment in her ability to help and inspire others]] to enjoy life. Alternatively, she's TheCape and works in emergency services (firefighters, coastguard, peacecorps, police, etc.) because she can go into the most dangerous of situations and survive every time. By the time she's 500 she's saved enough lives to fill a moderate sized country.
* '''Played For Drama''': Rachel's attitude quickly changed once the downsides start kicking in. She eventually becomes confused and depressed when she finally realizes the mistake she has made. "Time heals all wounds" she tells herself. Over the years, she learns how to deal with the downsides, and the immortality blues become just a part of the learning curve.
