I'm writing a MASSIVE fanfiction for Arcanum (I'm starting to nickname it the Fic From Hell, it's taking me sooooo long) and I was wondering how old people thought the various NPCs are. Here's my personal list (I stop counting for Void-dwelling characters at the point they enter the Void, and yes, each and EVERY one of the following characters makes an appearance at least once, plus some others whose age I just don't give a rat's about! There's a REASON I call it the Fic From Hell!): Arronax: Somewhere between 90 and 100 (Elves are notoriously long-lived, and Nasrudin and Arronax both say that he was really too young to be on the Council, so...) Dante: 42 (He reminds me of my dad at that age. 'Nuff said.) Geoffrey Tarellond-Ashe: 23, 26 at the oldest. (He basically says that he's just 'graduated', and god knows he acts like some stuck-up rich brats I knew at Uni...) Jayna Stiles: 19 or 20 (She's quite young, far's I can tell.) Magnus: 49 (Now Magnus was HARD to work out. This is a compromise age I arrived at after arguing with myself for a MONTH.) Perriman Smythe: 24 (He's slightly more mature than Geoffrey, but they seem to have something of a conflicted history, apparently they were in the same class or something. Lots of things for me to mess with there. > ) Raven: 237 (This one was almost as hard as Magnus, but then I sat down and puzzled it out for a while. This is the number that seemed right to me.) Sebastian: 27 (Another tricky one! Completely arbitrary, based on his portrait.) Virgil: 29 (Based on a combination of his portrait, his voice and his backstory.) Z'an Al'urin: 186 (Completely arbitrary again. NO idea really.) Feel free to debate my conclusions and reasoning - that's how good writing becomes better writing... or something... Plus I'm just curious.
