un question:

We're all in November, 2018, right? So, accordingly if we go by our ages; Maria would be born in around the sixteenth century (in 1551 to be exact), Michael would be born in year 1110, Axel in around year 1518, Garnet/Gideon in year 1606, and Duanphen in 118. Also, story said Asmodeus first rose in the 8th century, that is, in the years between 700-800 AD. So, going by this, none of us, except Duanphen, were present when Asmodeus rose.
Michael says he was a noble in the 1st century, that is in the years before 100 AD, but his age contradicts the fact. Axel says he was very young in the war against Asmodeus in the 700s, but he was born in 1500 (according to his age). Sooo......am I missing something obvious?

I think people didn't do the math. I also should have looked up millennia because that's a thousand years. At least I said 'at least a millennia'. XD

@AlexOfLight I think you probably meant to say 'eon.' It's longer than a millenia :)

@hiraeth I was thinking something in between. They are at least a million years. XD

Wow my math was wayyy off. Michael's age should be more like 1900 years old or something. Ooof.

And the century in which Asmodeus first rose can be shifted/debated. I just chose a random century.

@hiraeth I'm glad you caught that! It was glaring me in the face this whole time and I didn't even see it... Every once and a while math is useful lol...

I kind of just prefer being born in the 16th century, you know? I could be the naive greenbean of the group who's just excited that something worthwhile is finally happening, so she can stop doing worthless stuff like helping France win the 2018 world cups. ;)

p.s. And I'm more of a physics and chemistry kind of girl than maths (geometry is eww).

i actually like calculus (differentiation more than integration); but geometry is just 'no than you.'

"The trouble with Borrowing another mind was, you always felt out of place when you got back to your own body, and Granny was the first person ever to read the mind of a building. Now she was feeling big and gritty and full of passages. 'Are you all right?' Granny nodded, and opened her windows. She extended her east and west wings and tried to concentrate on the tiny cup held in her pillars."
