Jacques is one of the main characters in a story of mine that - well, is mostly unwritten still. He's even managed to avoid being killed off yet (how's that for an acomplishment?)

Fountain of youth

Jacques is very wise,
he says;
'If you want to stay young for ever,
you must kill yourself in youth
and be embalmed'.

(I have decided that wrinkles aren't so bad, after all.)
