The characters of Society of Immortals
Jack’s always had to take care of himself. After his dad killed himself, his mom worked two jobs to provide and Jack was on his own. Mary Rose represented a true home, and someone who would always be there for him—until immortality took that way. Now his best friends are the bottle and a bullet in the head. The rush that comes the instant before death is his drug.
Mary Rose and their daughter, Clarissa, are everything to Jack. He’s spent most of Clarissa’s life separated from them. He’s kept up a clandestine relationship with his wife, but his daughter thinks he died in a car accident. Their secret rendezvous are what keep him going, so he fears the moment when Mary Rose passes away and leaves him to live on forever
This playlist harkens back to Jack’s glory days as a teenager in the 80’s. These songs remind him of driving the backroads with Mary Rose sitting in the middle seat of his beat up pickup truck.

Alannah went to live with the Krueger family before she could find out she was immortal. Her idyllic life in Berlin was cut short by the Second World War. In the rubble of Berlin, the Society of Immortals reclaimed her, and she learned who she was. She’s the illegal daughter of Zoran, a criminal, who soon comes to find her and soon she was drawn into his schemes.
When Zoran kills one of her friends, Alannah is left traumatized. A hermit, she confines herself to the safety of routines, unwilling to move, unwilling to trust, but she dreams of doing something big and brave.
Alannah’s playlist is composed of a selection of chill, romantic oldies from the fifties and sixties, one of the happiest periods in her life when she was beginning her new life as an immortal, and studying in a Berlin university.
The eldest of the Immortals, Alexander never truly accepted his immortality. He mourns his lost wife and children and buries himself in the life of a theological scholar. When he meets the alluring Cosima, he feels hope for the first time in centuries.
But when the immortals realize their eternal life is spread by bloodline, Alexander decides despite his desperate love for Cosima, they can’t be together. He leaves her and his faith.
The true definition of an old soul, Alexander sticks to classical music. This playlist incorporates germanic classics from Schubert, romantic English songs from Dowland, and modern composers Mozetich and Shaw.
