Mahdi Gilbert

From the 17th century I came; moving silently down through the centuries, under names untold, living many secret lives, struggling to reach the time of my resurgence; when few would remain that would remember or recognize me. No one has ever known that I was living among you... until now.

Now, I perform wonders without hands and walk the earth without feet. I have been alive for three and a half centuries, and I cannot die, for I am immortal.
