John is condemned to live an immortal life until he finds his one true love, at which time he will be able to grow old together with this woman. His quest in life is now to try and find this woman, and is constantly trying to form relationships with women that he meets in order to discover if they can become that one true love. Over the years John has had several deep relationships, including establishing families and having children with several women. He claims to have 63 children.
John is also obsessed with death and how things die, which is also why he has chosen to become a New York City detective in the homicide division. As he is unable to die, he tries to uncover clues that bring about the end of the lives of others around him.
John does "die", temporarily, when he meets Dr. Sara Dillane for the first time on the New York City Subway, leading John to believe that Sara might be "the one" that he has been looking for his whole life.
