The Eternal Curse

"I have seen six centuries and ninety odd years; I have roamed through nearly ten lifetimes, watched kingdoms, countries, leaders, even worlds, rise and fall. Through all of this I have not perished and perhaps never will. My body, forever young, has been frozen in the vast course of time, but my mind has not; the knowledge I have accumulated over the many years would eclipse even the smartest human. I possess more strength than the strongest man, more beauty than the most beautiful woman. I prey on the humans and live forever from their lives; their thoughts are my thoughts, their flesh is my flesh, and their blood is my blood. I am the protagonist and the antagonist, the most tangible and the most abstract. Juxtaposed like devil and angel, I am. I am the supernatural and the unremarkable. I am eternally cursed."
