PoR Character Examination #2: Zihark
Posted August 22, 2007on:
Here is the next installment of the now random article series. I have no clue when the next one will be, but it will be within the next two weeks.
As if you couldn’t tell from the title – and the only excuse for not knowing is that you illiterate but then you couldn’t read this either – this will be about Zihark. In this I will focus mainly on his approximate age, mostly because I have no clue how old he could be. I know it seems odd that I would write about his AGE, when he has an interesting personal background, but I can’t find enough about his love to write about it. So without further ado, Zihark’s age.
Firstly, Zihark has to be old enough to have been on his own and in love long enough to consider marriage. He said at one point that the reason he and his lover separated was because they would have no where to live and their families would likely disown them. For purposes of my articles, the age of legal adulthood is 16. So if he was about 16 when he left, traveled for probably a few months at least before meeting a pretty Laguz woman, then was seing her for probably about a year to two years, then he would have been about 18 or 19 when he found that they could not marry. We don’t know how long he had been away from her when he joined up with Ike in Toha, but he was probably around 20 or 21. When he talks to Brom in the Support conversations they get along very well. Brom decides that Zihark should marry his oldest daughter, since they are the same age. Brom can’t be THAT old, as he was in a militia and he has all of his and hair color. So if brom got married soon after he became an adult, about 16 or 17, and had his first child shortly there after, she could be around 19-21 and Brom couls still be in his late 30’s. So Zihark can’t be more than 22 nor can he be less than 20, unless he was traveling at the ridiculously irresponsible age of 14 or below, like in medieval Europe (no wonder they were the dark ages) .
Thus concludes my second character examination. I will hopefully find a new subject to write about soon. Any suggestions are welcome, but, please, don’t turn the comments section into a poll. I’d like to be able to deduce Ike’s age, but there’s isn’t much material on that, so I doubt I can.
