Cursed Immortals Wage Sword Warfare on the Streets
Immortals be warned, once again the New Year brings news of the first immortal war death in Toronto, Canada where a samurai sword fight on a downtown street has caused the death of one and injured another.
Yes, a very real unnamed 40 year-old was found dead by samurai sword on the street of St. James Cathedral in Toronto, Canada this week while another man found stabbed in an apartment near the scene has survived his wounds.
A sober reminder to us all that every New Year brings with it the dangers of crossing paths with those immortals cursed to be the Only One, who step up their skirmish annually at the stroke of midnight New Years Eve.
Now here at SOS I have been warning supernatural survivors for years about immortal dangers brought by the new year but in the past we have focused our efforts on mortal quest become one and perils partying with them on New Years Eve.
But with this news report from Canada let’s look past that to recall the more immediate threat to your survival now. New Years brings with it a renewal of the fight among these immortals whose supernaturally long lifespans come with an ancient curse that There Can Be Only One.
While the source of this curse remains a source of speculation and mystery until it can be identified and remedied, you can avoid being caught in the crosshairs of their war if you can learn to identify them.
Could You Be Dealing With A Cursed Immortal ?
1. They Fight With A Sword And Go For the Head
It could be any type of sword, but in general the chosen blade will be representative of their nationality and the époque of their so-called quickening, that is, the moment of officially gaining immortal status.
You may be tempted to think this sword is the source of immortality and attempt to take it for yourself, but this is a myth. While there are legendary swords reputed to pass the power of immortality to the one who can wield it, it’s not the case of the cursed immortal whose long life remains with them even sans sword — providing they can keep their heads on their shoulders, at least
However it is true that having trained sometimes for centuries with a chosen blade, their fighting skills are firmly fixated centred on their swords. This means you can certainly throw one off his game by taking his beloved weapon away. Ancient habits are hard to break and these ancient dogs have a hard time learning new tricks.
2. They Come From Many Lands and Speak With Muddled Accents
There has never been a hundred percent accurate census of cursed immortals but anecdotal evidence indicates they come from many lands and tend to maintain certain sentimental markers of their homelands, their accents being one of these markers.
However, unlike demigods or vampires, cursed immortals have difficulty maintaining their native accents over the centuries and it becomes muddied with those of others among whom they live. Not to mention by binge watching seasons of American Dad.
3. They Still Rely on Archaic Technology
In the home of any curse immortal you will find a hidden trove of archaic technology. As the centuries pass these ancient warriors have a harder and harder time keeping up with the changes in the world around them. As a consequence, many may still be tracking the others with a papyrus map and a compass instead of a GPS and sending messages via pigeons instead of a smart phone.
Even those who have mastered the art of texting or posting selfies to Snapchat will inevitably reveal themselves by spinning a disc on a turntable or cranking up a gramophone to relax at night.
