Great ideas! I do believe the physical appearance of the character is too important to leave out (I hate it when writers "leave it to the imagination." No, I want to definitively know what the character looks like!) But the "I woke up and looked in the mirror" trope gets old fast.

"You will never really die?" "I can't. Unfortunately. I'm cursed." At least she thought she would never die....

infinitelives I'm thinking a Temporal looped character. They are locked in an infinite time loop, cursed to die, be born again in the past live then die again. Seeing the same world, same people, same experiences infinitely many times

Also just C. S. Lewis is amazing and his writing, even in small quotes like this, is wonderful

I’d been a philosopher for thousands of years. I knew what traitorous meaninglessness we all live on. I couldn’t bear the thought of existing for millennia without cease in this utterly empty expanse of space. Sure there might be other life, but I would always appear human. I would always be strange. So for the first time in my life, I tried to come up with a way, any way, to die. Little did I know that once I figured out how to die I’d find a reason to live.
