Your Personal Historical Companion


You can choose any historical figure from any period/civilization to be your personal companion. This person will have the sae personality and attributes as their historical counterparts, and will have the same memories etc.
This historical figure will speak your language, and will remain the age they were when you chose them. It will be their job to advise and guide you throughout the course of your life.
However, they will use their OWN methods and strategies. For example, if you choose Attila the Hun, he might suggest ripping your enemies apart limb by limb.
If you choose Julius Caesar, you might have to cross a lot of rivers.
You get the point.
Choose wisely!

I rather like the idea of having Odysseus in my corner.

Otherwise, there are a large number of painters and musicians and poets who might not only create extra masterpieces from their travels, but would likely make us welcomed.

Prime of life and health for all.

I think Mae West would be very instructive.

Oh, an imaginary historical friend! That's a topic for me !

I think I'd go with Géraud Michel Duroc. He managed to be friends with one of the most complex and difficult personalities in history in my opinion, and at all times seems to have had an endless capacity of patience, friendliness, tact and good taste. Would make a nice contrast.
