I personally dislike the classic "Chosen One" story, with prophecies going way back and the protagonist being the key to saving the world. But now that I'm writing this story of mine, I find that there is some element of it in my own. One of my protags is immortal (born in the stone age). When he was born, a Seer read his fate from some animal bones and entrails, like he does with every newborn. In the protags case, the Seer saw a healthy youth, but could not see old age and death itself in the signs. Since at least 2 of those have to show up in the "reading", this Seer is quite disturbed at first, but doesn't proclaim the truth about the outcome for fear of baby-protag being cast out. It is a prophecy of some sort, although more one that only has an impact on protag rather then says that "protag comes and saves the day". What do you think? Would this classify as a "Chosen One"?
