The Long and Winding Road, Part One: Kaim Argonar from Lost Odyssey

BT writes: If you could live for 1,000 years, what would you do?

It’s a very simple question, really. One that people can possibly give in their sleep if they wanted too; fulfilling their wildest dreams almost. Their hopes, their desires, everything available to you with enough time to do it. But is it worth it? For each positive the negatives can stack up, from the loss of friends and family, to finding complete apathy towards life in general, is being alive for 1,000 years truly worth it?

Not too many games deal with this issue of immortality in a cathartic way, but one game stands above the rest in that regard, and that was Lost Odyssey. A story with immortals living in a mortal world seems like a strange idea for a more classic-styled RPG, but Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi was able to create a journey that fulfilled those ideas, the ups and downs of the long and winded road of life, mostly through the eyes of the four immortal characters found in Lost Odyssey, Kaim Agronar, Ming Numara, Sarah Sisulart, and Seth Balmore.
