Character Ages

A question that is often asked is how old are the main characters. They are older than most people think.  Below you will find the ages of some of the characters. The age listed is the age they are at the beginning of the series.

Since they don’t seem to celebrate birthdays in the series it is hard to pin down precise ages, except for that Ta’veren.  When know when Rand was born and that Mat and Perrin were born within weeks of him.  The series starts in 998 NE and ends 1000 NE.

All ages listed were taken from the Wheel of Time Companion. All art work by Seamus Gallagher

*Rand, Mat and Perrin all turn 20 around the end of The Great Hunt.

** There is evidence in the book that Faile was originally written younger (14-15) but it seems this was changed in later pubications.
