    Since Jacen and Jaina are twins I think their the same age.

    I know Jacen and Jaina are under 20, becasue Jacen stated it in Destiny's Way.

    Jacen and Jaina were 16 at the start of the NJO, therefore placing Anakin at 15. Four years have passed puting them around 20 years old, depending when their mutual birthday occured during the year.

    I think Han is 3 or 4 years older than Luke.

    Tahiri is 16 and i think Anakin died at 16.

    Danni Quee is 5 years older than Jacen, so she'd be about 25.

    I'm not sure about Lando, but I'd think he's older than Han by a number of years.

    How old Luke and Leia are depends on personal preference right now, I think. At the time of ANH, in the novelization, they are either 18 (Leia) or 20 (Luke). Obviously, they cannot both be true or they aren't twins. So...pick one. I always see them as 18.

    We'll probably know for sure after EpIII comes out.

    And I always thought Han was at least a decade older than both of them.

    I think Han is 3 or 4 years older than Luke.

    Han's about 10 years older than the twins (29 in ANH). Therefore, he should be about 59 at the time of TUF.

    Or, as our friend Mr. wk would put it, Han died at the ripe old age of 59. :p

    To do the monkey with the wrench, I've heard both the 18 and the 20 age for Luke/Leia as of ANH, but after getting the WEG Thrawn Trilogy sourcebooks, they're 28, which would make them 19 during ANH.

    For what it's worth, Mara Jade is listed as the same age as Luke.

    Han solo is listed as 40+, I'd always assumed he was 30 in ANH.

    Captain Pellaeon is listed as 70+, which lends credence to the estimates about his age in the NJO.

    That would place the Skywalker twins and Mara Jade at 49 each as of TUF, Han Solo at roughly 59, and Pellaeon at at least 95.

    I'd place Kyp at 35+ yrs, considering that he was an adult around the timeframe of the JA trilogy.

    Any word on how long the Yuzzies live, BTW?

    Vong are supposed to have exceptionally long lifespans for humanoids, but then again I have never seen any specific numbers.


    Luke+Leia, (going by EpIII), are 20 in ANH, + 29 years, puts them at 49 years of age. (48, until the release of TUF)

    Han (from EGV&V), 29 in ANH + 29 = 58

    Jacen + Jaina, 29 - 9 (born TTT) = 20 years of age

    Anakin, died at 17

    Mara, same as or one year younger than Luke.

    Garm Bel Iblis: 52 + 29 = 81

    Pellaeon: 66 + 29 = 95

    Boba Fett: 22 + 29 = 51

    Padme (assuming she somehow lived) 46 + 29 = 75

    Ackbar: 44 + 29 = 73

    Hyram Drayson: 37 + 29 = 66

    Karrde: 34 + 29 = 63

    Lando: 31 + 29 = 60

    Gavin Darklighter = 13 + 29 = 42

    Kyp Durron: 18 (JAT) - 11 + 29 = 36

    Danni Quee: 20 (VP) + 5 = 25
    Thats all that I've got/>

    I think Kyp was 15 or 16 in JAT.

    You know what's really funny?

    Pellaeon was originally drafted as lying about his age to get into the Navy during the Clone Wars.

    Well obviously he was....

    He must have said he was YOUNGER than he was!

    At present Pelleon was forty three years old during the Clone Wars.

    I wonder what he was before....

    Insurance investigator? College professor? Falklands war hero?

    Boba Fett is older than Han. I remember reading a story where he watched Han fight in an arena, and Han was only about 16. Boba was at least five years older at that point.

    I wonder how old Daala was, and Rogriss, Veers, Tarkin, Piett, Parck and Baron Fel for that matter?

    Any official information?

    Dancing_Jansons...
    "At the time of ANH, in the novelization, they are either 18 (Leia) or 20 (Luke). Obviously, they cannot both be true or they aren't twins."

    Sure it can. All it means is that Amidala had a rather long birth... yeeeooowwwwch!!! :eek:

    6-6-6...
    "Mara, same as or one year younger than Luke."

    Mara's age is strictly dependent on the time being considered. As of The Thrawn Trilogy, Mara was two years younger than Luke. As of Balance Point (many years later), Mara is two years older than Luke. Her age is increasing at an increasing rate. While not official, the best speculation for this strange situation has to do with some sort of breakdown of clone biology. Perhaps she is a clone of Shira Brie, etc.

    According to the Heir to the Empire sourcebook, Admiral Ackbar was in his mid fifties.

    So, assuming he was 55 at the time, the ailing Admiral is around 80 (give or take a year or two) at the time of his involvement in Destiny's Way.
