There was a book series a friend of mine lent me years ago about a scryer called Nevyn which translates into "No One". He cursed himself to wander the world forever, never revealing his true name, because he felt responsible for the events that led up to the woman he loved killing herself.
"No Name" was doomed to never be able to die and rejoin his love in the wheel of reincarnation, so he spent his life searching for each her new incarnations and trying to help her out in that current life. There were a couple of wars and an evil necromancer that was "No Name"'s main nemesis in the storyline.
The story spanned over 6-7 books IIRC. If I remember the name of the author and the title of the series I'll add it to the thread.
Edit: Just remembered it, the author is Katherine Kerr and it's called the Deverry series; the first book in the saga is "Daggerspell
