 I was born in 966 or 967 AD (I can't remember exactly the AD date, have to convert calendars...)*,​ in Alexandria, Egypt, to Jewish parents; my father made and sold wagons and carts to the city's many lower and middle class residents (Jewish, Christian, and Muslim). My older brother took over his business, while I went about my first few decades as a kosher baker, married and had children (5; 3 lived to have children of their own). After awhile, I realized I had stopped aging in my 20s; it wasn't too bad for awhile, but by the time I was 50 or so people were looking suspicious. After my first wife died, I decided it was time to leave, before the rabbis (or worse, imams) decided that I was a witch or something. I disguised myself (though I kept the same name - how many Jews have a nice biblical name like "​Daniel"?​) and became a sailor on a merchant ship, heading off for Sepharad. ​ I was born in 966 or 967 AD (I can't remember exactly the AD date, have to convert calendars...)*,​ in Alexandria, Egypt, to Jewish parents; my father made and sold wagons and carts to the city's many lower and middle class residents (Jewish, Christian, and Muslim).

 Sorry, came about 940 years late. Hell, I missed Mohammed too. And I left India centuries before the Sikhs were founded... the only big religious prophet I ever met was Joseph Smith (long story... needless to say I was not impressed). ​ Sorry, came about 940 years late.

 Languages I can still speak and/or read: English, Dutch (a touch archaic), German (albeit a non-modern dialect), Yiddish, Arabic, Coptic (one of my childhood tongues, along with Arabic and Hebrew; not really fluent but I still dream in it at times), classical Greek, Hebrew (written only) and Latin (oddly, since I didn't need it much; I picked it up in Poland and kept with it). I can still remember a few bits of Polish, and while I never lived in French lands, I have a little from it being a major trade/​diplomacy language in the 17th-19th centuries. Also a few words in Old Spanish, whatever the Christians spoke in 11th century Iberia. Languages I can still speak and/or read: English, Dutch (a touch archaic), German (albeit a non-modern dialect), Yiddish, Arabic, Coptic (one of my childhood tongues, along with Arabic and Hebrew; not really fluent but I still dream in it at times), classical Greek, Hebrew (written only) and Latin (oddly, since I didn't need it much; I picked it up in Poland and kept with it).
