How old are they?

Post

This is a topic that comes up a lot, but I'm curious. How old do you imagine the characters of Odyssey to be? Do they age? How fast?

Here's how I depict the ages of the characters

Whit: In my mind he's been the same age the entire show, 70 yrs old.
Connie: She ages very slowly. Beginning of show maybe 16 or 17. Now I imagine her to be 24 or 25
Penny: A little older than Connie at 26-28
Wooton: early Thirties.
Jason: Barely ages, beginning of show late 20's, now 33, 34.
Tom: A steady 70's
Jack: Same as Whit
Eugene: A little older than Connie, maybe 28.

Feel free to add characters in your list. How old do you imagine them to be?

First of all, I would like to introduce you to a concept I formulated a year ago called Odyssey Time.
Now, AIO writers knew their time was warped because of Katie Leigh's voice, but this is the actual scientific approach to it:

When Connie came to Odyssey in 1987, she was sixteen.
When Connie graduated in 1997, she was eighteen.
Thus, one Odyssey year equals five Normal years.

So, if Whit was in WWII, he'd at least have to be born in 1928.
By 1987, the start of the show, Whit would have been about 59 years old.
Using Odyssey Time, only five years have passed, placing Whit's age to be about 64 years old.

Just curious; What does that make Monty's age if one is using this formula?

Now, in Album 53 Monty was in his twenties thus putting him at 15 when he appeared on Album 7 for Christmas.
However, he was technically 13 or 14 when those shows appeared, putting him at approximately 18-20 year old range.
Odyssey Time, though it works in most cases, as in the case of Monty, is more of an approximation.
Truly, it's very effective.

He sounded younger to me in those episodes, like say 9 or ten. But I see your point, it's a theory that has potential for loose ends.

In some of the episodes, I thought Emily said Barret was her older brother, not younger. But other than that, I'd say this is how old I imagine everyone being.

I'm talking about the kids.
I don't know what to think about their ages. All the kids sound to old now to be 11 and 12 y/o's. I think they sound more like 15 y/o's, which is the case, since they're all older than their character ages.
Even Camilla. In The Holy Hoopster, she sounded like a 12 or 13 y/o.

Olivia should be older than Matthew, since she is his older sister.

Gablerbage I don't think you can post that many times, when no one posted after you. You should have just edited your first post.

Emily and Matthew are in at least high school. Which would make them at least 14.
Because in "The Lost Riddle", they use high school lockers. And why would they use high school lockers if they were still in middle school?

How do you know they used high school lockers? And I think all the kid characters are in middle school.
