When it comes to Immortality, there are some advantages. Let's face it: When you count decades the way others count minutes, you've got time to master swordfighting, learn foreign languages, prepare sandwiches, and so forth.

This immortal is not that type.

In short, even though Bob has been alive since the 12th century, he's mentally stuck in that era. He still dresses the way he did back then, talks the same, has not adapted with the times AT ALL.

Do We Have This One?? If not, Rolling Updates (if they occur).

  • In the most recent League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Mina fears becoming one of these. Orlando and Allan become this to a degree. They dress modern enough, but other than that, they aren't the least bit into the 60s. In Black Dossier, it's revealed that after living for over a century, and being rejuvenated, Allan's hand-to-hand combat skills are less than that of a woman in her 20s.
  • In Hell To Pay, the daughter of the immortal Jeremiah Griffin Lampshades how her father has always disregarded her business acumen, because he was born in medieval times and still thinks of commerce as men's work.
  • This sometimes happened in the Vampire: The Masquerade setting in the World of Darkness. Vampires created centuries ago continued to act and dress as they did at the time of their Embrace.
