A lot of my characters sustained injuries of some sort before the story began. Most of these injuries likely don't count because the story centers around semi-randomly chosen people who died, then came back to life as immortals with a Healing Factor
. Usually, the injuries they sustained right before dying still affect them in some way that their Healing Factor
- My protagonist, Matt, was blinded a few decades after coming back alive. It was replaced with Aura Vision
, which still carries its own problems, but it arguably made him even more useful. Like Daredevil
, I guess.
- Viktor, a family friend of Matt's father, had over a hundred rounds of ammunition emptied into his body, then woke up as a quadriplegic due to nerve damage. After making a Deal with the Devil
for psychic powers, he can walk again, so long as his demon sticks around. Which she does for the entire century it takes his nerves to heal on their own.
- Kiyoi was beaten to death, and as a result suffers near-constant muscle pain. The years have not been kind to his body, even for an immortal. Yet at the age of 973, he drives a main plot thread, and even sees it through almost to the end.
