As a God, Gig is physically incapable of aging. His age, like everything else about the God, is a consistent constant, impervious to change. Or that’s the way it’s supposed to be. One job, one purpose, for all of time. Whilst those around Gig wither, age, and die - he lives on. For eternity. That’s the way it’s always been.
However, nobody ever told the reaper, that if he managed to discover the humanity in him, his emotions, his ability to love, and embrace that side of him over his Godhood. Slowly, but surely, the ‘God’ would lose his immortality. It would be seen by his ‘higher ups’, as settling, for those who walked earthbound, and he would give up his rights to live beyond the years of those he’d chosen as his soulmate(s), to treasure and hold his soul for all eternity.
As his lovers would age and wither, so too would he, no longer being able to regenerate, to Rebrth if injured fatally. If he gave his heart and his soul away, he’d give up everything that had once made him strong, to place his strength in a person, in a mortal.
He would live for them. And he would die for them. A kindness, perhaps; in being allowed to leave this world, the same time as someone who might warm the heart of a God, instead of suffering the fate of watching them die, and carrying on, alone.

☠: A popular fanon headcanon about my character that bugs me
You mean apart from the obvious? I won’t use that as an example, because to be honest, I get really tired of fandom arguments really quickly.
And to be honest, I don’t know a whole lot of ‘popular fanon headcanons’, because I try to stay out of fandoms, for the most part. Be a fan of things, without being ‘in’ the fandom, because. You know. Arguments. Drama. Opinions equaling personal attacks, all of that stuff. But one headcanon I have seen floating around a couple of times, is that Gig is a rapist. Or if not a rapist, certainly an abuser. And that…makes me really uncomfortable? I don’t believe Gig is interested in sex. Talking canonly here, nevermind my roleplay shenanigans - and even then, I don’t believe sex is something Gig actively seeks out. He doesn’t give a shit. That’s mortal crap. All he cares about, is destruction, more or less in the beginning. So when I see people coming up with writings/headcanons, that he’d abuse/rape Revya, or other people, I just. He’d manipulate Revya, yes. But she’s his host body. He said as much himself - if she/he dies, Gig dies. I tend to think Gig’s way of being abusive, is either fuck with their minds to make them question their morals, their judgement, make them hand over their body to him that way - or just. Kill them. What does he have to gain from rape? And he doesn’t strike me as the guy to really. Bother much with physical torture? Sure, begging and crying is entertaining for awhile, but I don’t think. He’s that sick, to hurt people to extremes, without their consent or putting them in that situation, that’s. That’s just what I believe.
☢: Something about my character that I’ve never explored but want to
I’ve never really Gig discussing his past in great lengths with anyone. And there’s good reason for that - trust issues, Gig doesn’t really like his past, or talking about it with anyone. But just once, it’d be interesting if someone actually pushed him about it. You know, why are you so hesitant in talking about what it was like to be a God? What happened to you? Why were you imprisoned in a sword; who’s this Vigilance I’ve heard you mention a few times? What happened to you? Because there’s either going to be two possible responses, depending on the person that asks. There will be anger, refusal, rage; or there will be pain. So much pain. It’s just, something I haven’t explored yet, but it’d be really interesting to see how Gig reacts.
