How old the various QC characters are
« on: 19 Feb 2013, 03:03 »

Amir: 35 in comic #1180 (2008 IRL)
Dora: 26 in comic #144 (2004 IRL) and 26 was "a good guess" in comic #1928 (2012 IRL), although she could have been misleading in #1928
Ellen: 17 in comic #231 (2004 IRL), presumably turned 18 before comic #296 (2005 IRL)
Faye: 19-20 as of her father's death, 2 years plus a few months prior to comic #507 (the few months from comic #458) (2005 IRL), making her 22-23ish I'd guess as of #507
Hannelore: Turned 22 in comic #1069 (2008 IRL)
Hannerdad: Turned 56 in comic #2129 (2012 IRL)
Henry: Late 50s per Jeph as of 2013 IRL (at same time as comic #2398, filler comic)
Jim: 40 in comic #1954 (2011 IRL), turning 41 in "July" in-comic
Marten: Younger than Dora? (Based on Faye humming Mrs. Robinson in comic 144), Older than Tai?
Samantha: 13 in comic #1958 (2012 IRL)
Steve: 24 in comic #224 (2004 IRL)
Sven: 1 year older than Dora in comic #337 (2005 IRL)

You should refer the ages to comic number, not real-life years, because time in the comic does not advance at the same speed as in the world.

True, although it also helps establish time flow.

Also, Dora doesn't confirm her age as 26 to Jim in comic 1928 - she only says it's a good guess.  She could be covering for 27 or 28 perhaps.

She's a year younger than Sven, who told Faye he's 28.

It could be like my brother and I - we're 15 months apart, so for most of the year, we're only a year different, but for a few months we're 2 years apart in age. 



Which is the only time I let him call me "old man".   :-D

Faye moved north a few months before comic #458: http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=458 (I think that's useful for determining age, but I forget, so I'll stick it down here.)

FWIW, this was started by a conversation in the chat on Jeph's stream, wondering Marten's age.

http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=507 So, Faye would've been approximately 20 when her father killed himself (could have been 19 to 21, most likely 19-20), 2 years later she moved north, a few months after that is comic 507. Making her probably 22-23 as of comic 507.

Yes, quite. If I recall, it's been roughly two or three comic-years since the start.
