Hiro Hiyorimi (日和見 日郎)A middle school boy who dies at the beginning of the series (in the manga he was hit by the station wagon Flandre is driving, whereas in the anime he is hit by a falling iron pillar). He finds himself in Hime's service as he is bound to her because her blood (flame, in the anime) revived him. Though young and not very strong, Hiro manages to assist Hime (mostly by being a human shield) through his "half-immortality" that was given to him after his resurrection. At first, he is rather involuntarily involved in the battles but as he learns more about Hime, he is willing protect her. His body changes in the manga when Hime's life is in danger which was left out in the anime.
Since the dawn of fantasy storytelling in The Epic of Gilgamesh, immortality has been an ever present idea in myth, legend, and literature. Different rules regarding this concept have developed over time but many modern stories still feature characters who presumably can live forever.
