Role: The immortal lover | Occupation: Professor of genetics | Age: Over 800
Michael remembers little of his past life in the snow-coated forests of northern Europe, where he was born into darkness over eight centuries ago. Remaining on the outskirts of society and quenching his dark thirst with the blood of animals allowed him to stay hidden in the shadows.
But, his need to breathe meaning into an immortal existence led him to pursue academia, and in the recent years he has held positions in prestigious universities around the world. While presenting a research paper on molecular phylogenetics, Michael is introduced to Sarah, and his carefully structured world is shattered by the powerful connection and uncontrollable desire he feels for this mortal woman.
Fearing rejection, Michael attempts to conceal his true nature from Sarah but, in a moment of unexpected weakness, he confesses the truth and his undying love for her.
