>Son, did I ever tell you about the time I met an immortal man?
>His name was Jack Cabot. He invited me to his house in uptown Boston. Incredible place, perhaps the only building in the entire city that had not fallen into disrepair.
>Anyway, it turns out that Cabot and his family had been alive since before the war. Nobody ever raised any suspicion of course, even though his sister was prone to wandering out and about, mingling with the mortal residents of Diamond City.
>How you may ask? Well it's quite simple. Jack's father, Lorenzo, was an archaeologist. In 1894 he went on an expedition in search of an ancient alien city. It turned out to be a great success as he discovered alien ruins buried beneath the sands of the Arabian desert, and from it took a magical artifact.
>Upon putting the artifact on his head, he became immortal and gained supernatural abilities, including telekinesis and hyper-intelligence. Sadly, it came at a price of his sanity.
>Jack had to lock Lorenzo up in an insane asylum for 400 years, periodically running tests on him and drinking his blood. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, that's why his whole family is immortal too. They drink his magical blood which has been enhanced by the artifact.
>Sadly, it all had to come to an end. A group of ragtag raiders managed to take over the asylum in an attempt to get to Lorenzo. With Jack's assistance, I managed to thwart their assault, but it was too late for the old man. He died in his containment chamber at the ripe age of 452.
>Jack thanked me for his help and jury-rigged a gamma gun - that's a handheld device that shoots gamma rays - with the alien artifact. What? No, it can't make me immortal. It only worked on Lorenzo.
>As for Jack? Well, after losing his immortality, he went off to the Mojave desert in search of more ancient alien cities.
>He was a good friend.
