* MagicalNegro: A bizarre twist and possible {{subversion}}-the protagonist's mentor who gives him sage advice and a beer whenever he needs to unwind and talk about his troubles, while a very stereotypical grizzled and kindly old black man, is also...the protagonist's son. Such are the vagaries of being an unaging immortal (the kind who can have kids but can't pass on the immortality).

* SecretKeeper: Omar (and at least one other kid of John's) in regards to their father's immortality (not that anyone's likely to believe them anyway-though now that DNA tests have come into existence...)

* BlessedWithSuck: John saves the life of an Indian woman, who in return grants him eternal life and youth until he finds his soul mate, who he will know by feeling it in his heart. Unfortunately, this means he suffers a heart attack that would normally be fatal once he gets near her (that is if Sara really is his soul mate. Unfortunately the series was cancelled before we found out for sure).
