Vin's mother and sister: Death dates

9 posts in this topic

In the wiki, the death dates of these two individuals is marked as c 1028 FE.  That can't be right, as the Catacendre was 1025 (as seen by Vin's own death date), and her sister (and IIRC her mother as well) died when she was a young child.  So do we know how old Vin was at the actual time they died, and if not, should the line simply be removed?

Good catch. We don't know Vin's age at the time, as far as I can tell, but given she doesn't remember the event or her mother very well and for the sake of picking a round number I'm going to change their death dates to "c 1010 FE" (when Vin was 5).

I don't see anything wrong with a 'circa' date. It's better than nothing.

Circa dates are totally fine.

I don't think she was that young, but it's been a while since I've reread it in entirety.

I'm pretty sure the dates for Vin are correct. She was 16, and turns 17 part of the way through.

She wore a simple white buttoned shirt and a pair of overalls. Indeed, she was hardly enticing, scrawny with a youthful face, she supposedly didn't even look her sixteen years.

Pg. 23 in paperback, paragraph 5

For me she didn't even read like 16 at the beginning . Well done.

Vin started and completed her mistborn training at the age of 16 (this was mentioned when demoux was explaining how important the number 16 is)
