    Group these characters based on age

    Im making this thread under the assumption weve not been given an official age for these characters.

    Im doing the groupings based on age and not based on how early or late their careers peaked.


    Gakuki
    ............

    Mougou
    Renpa
    Chotou
    Duke Hyou
    GenBou
    Gekishin
    Gokei
    KoShou

    ............

    Ouki
    Kanmei
    Gaimou
    Reiou
    Earl Shi
    Houken
    ..............

    Tou
    Ousen
    Riboku
    Shoheikun
    Moubu
    Kyou
    Karin
    Rinko

    .......

    Kanki
    Yotanwa
    Gohomei

    Add more characters if you like. I think weve been given enough hints in the manga whereby we can come up with a sort of timeline of events and make a calculated guess for the ages of these characters. I was too lazy to dig it up myself, so I think we can use this thread to discuss it and do it together.

    I remembr Rinko stated to be in the 30s

    Also, I think Genbou is older than Renpa by at least 10 years

    There's zero chance that Tou and Riboku are of the same generation Tou is clearly in his 50s while Riboku looks to be around 30-35 and you could probably move him and Shouheikun down to Kanki's generation.

    I always considered the Q6 to have quite a wide ranging age. It's the only way I can explain the Q6/Z3 being old enough to balance out Gakuki considering the original coalition war was actually the last war he participated in. So the overlap was 45 years ago.

    Meanwhile Gokei only moved to Wei 30 years prior to dakan plains and he didnt even start as a general.

    I definitely think Ouki should be up there with Renpa and Duke Hyou.

    Tou should be with Kanmei, Ouki with Mougou

    Shibasaku would be the oldest with Gakuki iirc

    Shoheikun and Moubu were childhood friends. SHK/Moubu/Ousen seem to be a couple years older than Kanki to me. Given that they had teenage kids. Riboku feels to me like he has to be with Ousen/SHK as well. With as much influence/authority he has even before the current timeline, I thought he should be grouped with those guys. Not that he can’t be younger but that was my gut feeling.

    Tou however I agree probably should be a bit above. I initially did have him grouped with Ouki and co.

    Tou I initially had up there with Kanmei and co. I bumped him down at the last minute for some reason. But he probably should be up there.

    As for Ouki, Renpa and Mougou were said to be rivals even in the younger days. Do we really think Ouki is same age as Mougou? Gekishin at the we saw him was probably 60+ as he took part in wars with Gakuki about 45 years before the time we saw him. Mougou and Renpa should have been most likely 60+ as well. Ouki didn’t look that old to me.

    Ouki looks so bizarre that's it hard to estimate his age, but he never was considered a 'youngster' among the 6GG or anything. I always assumed he was in his fifties at least at Bayou.

    I can definitely see a case for early fifties.

    Shin is 22 at the moment I believe. If I had to put numbers on it:

    Shin/Mouten/Ouhon : 20-25
    Kanki/Yotanwa : 28-35
    Ousen/Moubu : 40-45
    Ouki : 55-65
    Renpa/Mougou/Gekishin : 68-75
    Gakuki: 80-90

    He's 22? Hasn't it been like a decade in-series?

    I checked the age with a google search. Lemme double check.

    The wiki says 22. I can’t remember how big the timeskip/elapsed time in the series is. I doubt it’s 10 years.

    I checked the wiki too, Seikyou's rebellion was in 245 BC and the current campaign is in 236 BC.

    So Shin was like 13 or 14 at the beginning

    Shin started at 13. Shin was 22 during the Kokuyou arc and a year past so he’s 23 Ouhon and Mouten are 24 Kyoukai is 22 and Ten is probably 18/19

    ShouBunKun (yes, I know he is not mentioned in the list above) and Ouki are the same age given they rose through the ranks together, so seeing how old yuo think SBK is now is a good indicator to guess how old Ouki could have been.

    Moubu and SHK are childhood friends, but looking at the drawings I would say that SHK is younger than Moubu, given that Moubu has two kids. And erven that brings up a question as to Mougou's age gieven he was in middle age when Moubu was young (but even that seems a bit questionable drawing wise). Abd beung the same age as Renpa, I would say somewhere in the late 60s for both of them.

    Given the position that Riboku is in, and his position of power, I would say he has to be in his mid-40s if not up to 50, because he is the next generation down from Renpa, so a 15-20 odd year difference there may not be too surprising.

    Ousen has to have rough similar age to Riboku....
