"We're not supposed to reach physical immortality—that's what the soul is for. The soul is the immortal part of us. It recycles, over and over again from what I've seen, but it never dies. We're meant to strive beyond the physical world, not... not settle for it and only it." ------Jude's thoughts on Immortality
Jude Knight was Bastiaan de Kool in one of his past reincarnations.
As discovered by Ever during her reading of him,
His father committed suicide when he was ten it was a year after his mother passed away. For many years after Jude felt immense guilt thinking for the longest time he could of stopped his father form ending his life.
Ever also realizes that Jude has a gift similar to hers, he can see spirits of those who are going to cross over. She tells him that his father tried to visit him over the years so he could explain that he only ended his life because he wanted to be with his mother.
As he got older Jude supressed his ablitly and thus never saw his father again.

One day Ever accidently attacks Jude with a saw still thinking he is with Roman. Horrifed by her actions Ever takes Jude to the emergency room.
