I came up with what I think is a really cool idea, but I'm not sure what to do or where to go with it. Basically, the main character, Ethel, is immortal, but not like your vampire and god/goddess kind of immortal. He... reincarnates, but it's not reincarnation in the traditional sense. Reincarnation is just the closest word I could come up with to describe his situation. He can't die. He truly is immortal in the sense that he can't ever die. Vampires and other "immortal" things can die in someway or other, but Ethel, his soul just keeps getting tossed around from body to body. Something is tying him to the physical world. A curse? Anyway, how it works is: Ethel ages like any normal person, and when Ethel gets in a situation in which a normal person would die, he physically dies, but his soul is traded out with someone else's who's physical body died at the same time. Because of this transfer, Ethel physically dies twice, as his soul and consciousness is held suspended between his previous body and the new one. He receives impressions of the original person's emotions when in this state, but other than that, he knows nothing about the person's body that he is going to be stuck in until the next time he "dies". For this reason and many others, Ethel has to be very careful with how he goes about reintroducing himself into society. People may recognize his host body, the host body could be any age, and many other complications arise. He could go from being in a body of a 22 year old, to being in a body of someone who was 76, to being trapped inside an infant's. How would his consciousness handle this? Any suggestions will be very helpful.
