This character is by far one of the most complex characters in my story. The reason being; he is more than 2,000 years old and has a lot of experience and trauma under his belt. When he was young, his specie was secretly massacred for 'mysterious reasons' causing him to become an eternal runaway. Whoever killed his family is after him, so wherever he goes, trouble abounds. Nonetheless, he is the main love interest in my story and my goal is to make, break and make him again.
How can an immortal hardened by life learn to live normally once again?
Follow me into the IDENTITY NOMAD's many adventures to crack the code!

The Explorer Phase

However, having had no life-purpose prior to learning about the treasure, Andrés is willing to bet his life on finding it.

1500s - 1700s: Cap'n John Doe
In 2018, Inspired on a college project I did back in 2014 called "Rock or Die," about horrible scoundrels who swore on oath to rock music, the idea of merging Doe's story emerged. I always knew this character was a pirate for a while, likewise I knew he had taken the famously used fake name to retain his secret identity and to provoke the most feared pirate of the times Cap'n John Ganit. He travels the world aboard his mighty ship L'Amphitrite (named after the Greek Sea Goddess) whilst he flees from his mortal enemies.
It is during his time as John Doe, that his life takes the unexpected turn his immortal soul had been starving for.
