Day 5: Characters’ Ages
Day 5 of my 30 Days of Writing About Writing. Enjoy!
By age, who is your youngest character? Oldest? How about “youngest” and “oldest” in terms of when you created them?
By age, either Natiae or Kale is my youngest character. Natiae has lived for over 30 years, but since the Elari live twice as long as humans, she’s only about 15-16 years of age. Otherwise, Kale is the youngest at age 18. Both are from my unnamed novel.
God-Chosen would have the oldest character by age. General Adón is a couple hundred thousand years old, as is Sirúnna, but the gods and angels are quite old, as well. Then of course I’d have to take time into consideration, as time passes differently in different worlds…
Kali would be my oldest in terms of when I created her, but I scrapped her years ago. Out of my active characters, Natiae and Lyneth are actually the oldest. I started Natiae’s character several years ago, under the name Catrin.
My most recent characters are the ones in Uprising who don’t have official names yet. My working names are Anthony, Tracy, Mark, and Lisa, as well as J.O. and A.N.N. for AI. Those are all likely to change once I develop the characters more. Except for A.N.N., I’ll probably keep that one.
What are your youngest and oldest characters?
