Basil

This is poor Basil, the zombie. He suffers from a chronic impossibility to die. Don't laugh, it's a serious condition! He managed to die once, a looong long time ago, of natural causes (fresh mushrooms), then again around 285 (Goth invasion), and then once more in 1710 (plague). But he hasn't been dead since then at that makes him very tired.

Acesta este saracu' Basil; el e un zombie. sufera de o imposibilitate cronica de a muri. Nu radeti, ca e o conditie foarte serioasa! A reusit sa moara o data, cu muult mult timp in urma, de cauze naturale (ciuperci proaspete), apoi a mai murit o data prin 285 (invazia gotilor), apoi inca odata pe la 1710 (ciuma). Dar n-a mai fost mort de atunci si asta il face foarte obosit.
Having lived through most of known history, he is very knowledgeable, and people of Falushtain sometimes employ him as a tutor for their children. He is well bred and has very elegant manners, a true gentleman!

Avand in vedere ca a trait cam toata istoria cunoscuta, Basil este foarte bine informat, si oamenii din Falushtain il angajeaza cateodata ca profesor particular pt copiii lor. E bine crescut si are maniere foarte elegante, un adevarat gentleman!
Even if he is so tired, he does not believe in suicide. He likes to hang around the cemetery pub, hoping someone might help him to another period of not-so-eternal rest. His favourite pick-up line is "do you ever feel like killing someone?"

Chiar daca e asa de obosit, Bazil nu crede in sinucidere. Ii place sa piarda vremea prin barul cimitirului, in speranta ca cineva il va ajuta cu inca o perioada de odihna mai-mult-sau-mai-putin vesnica. Replica lui de agatzat favorita este "iti vine vreodata sa omori pe cineva?"

P.S. Is it just me or does he look a bit like Morgan Freeman?
P.S. Mi se pare mie sau seamana un pic cu Morgan Freeman?
