What do we know about ‘The Wheel of Time’ characters’ ages and birthdays?
‘The Wheel of Time’ timeline consists of four Ages, and the events in the show are happening in the Third Age. The Third Age is divided into After Breaking/AB, Free Years/FY, and New Era/NE. The main characters are all born in the New Era.
The first character we meet in the show is Moiraine, a skilled Aes Sedai, and she is 44 years old at the present moment in the series. Moiraine was born in the year 956 NE. Moraine has her Warder at first, Lan. However, their bond is interrupted after Moriaine confronts the Dark One. Lan is 47 years old in the show. His birth year, 953 NE, places him slightly older than Moiraine.
Nynaeve is a strong-willed and talented Wisdom, training to become Aes Sedai in the show’s second season. She is 24 years old in the series and was born in 974 NE. Egwene is the youngest character in the group, and she will most likely undergo significant growth throughout the show. She is 17 years old and born in 981 NE, and regardless of her age, she demonstrates a grand potential; even Moiraine hoped that she could be the new Dragon Reborn.
Perrin, known for his strength and connection to the wolves, is 20 years old and was born in 978 NE. He shares a birth year with his childhood friends, Rand and Mat. Rand is known as the Dragon Reborn and is also 20 years old, being born in 978 NE, just like Mat, who shares the same age and year of birth as his two friends.
So, based on everything mentioned above, we can conclude that Lan is the oldest, followed by three years younger Moiraine. Two of them are far older than the rest of the group. Nynaeve is in her mid-20s and is depicted as more mature and protective toward Perrin, Rand, Mat, and Egwene. The three boys are all 20 years old, and Egwene is the youngest, 17 years old. This group is versatile regarding their age but gets along nicely. The combination of wisdom, experience, and adventurous spirit make a great combination.
It’s worth mentioning that the characters in the show look older than in the novels, most notably Egwene, Perrin, Rand, and Mat, and that was made deliberately by the show creators.
What do we know about ‘The Wheel of Time’ characters’ heights?
Moriaine’s height falls between 5’0″ and 5’3″, or approximately 152-160 cm. Her height is stated differently in various interviews, so it’s fair to state an approximate height for her. It’s also worth mentioning that the actor Rosamund Pike, who plays Moiraine in the show, is 5’8” in real life. Rosamund is praised as being the perfect choice for this role. Lan is 6’5.5″/197 cm. The actor who plays Lan, Daniel Henney, is 6’2”/188 cm in real life. Nynaeve’s height is 5’4″ to 5’5″/163-165 cm, while Egwene’s height ranges from 5’2″ to 5’5″/157-165 cm.
Perrin’s height is approximately 6’1.5″ to 6’2″/187-188 cm, and Rand is around 6’5″-6’6″ /195-198 cm, making him the tallest character among this group. Mat is around 5’11.5″-6’0″/182-183 cm tall. All the men are relatively tall, but their physical appearances differ.
So, Rand is the tallest among the mentioned characters, followed closely by Lan, who is slightly shorter. Perrin is 10 cm shorter than Rand, putting him in third place, and Mat follows him, who is 5 cm shorter than him. All men are taller than women; the tallest woman is Nynaeve, followed by Egwene and Moraine, the shortest in the group. Please note that these heights are mentioned based on character descriptions in the novels, not in the show.
These characters have proved themselves to be the central ones in the show’s storyline so far, and as the show progresses, it is possible that some other characters could find their place among them. If you have something to add, please do so in the comments below!
