Another Mustang-tachi question.  
Yes, I have another question, sorry. Anyway, does anyone know how old the Mustang-tachi are (During the series)? This is what I have so far:


Fuery seems to be younger than Riza, Falman seems to be older than Roy, and Havoc and Breda seem to be the same age (which seem to be around Roy's age range.)

Any ideas?

So basically, from what was gathered, I have two ways to go with the ages.
(From youngest to oldest)
1.) Fuery, Riza, Breda, Havoc, Roy, Falman.
2.) Fuery, Breda, Havoc, Falman(?), Roy.

I know for certain that Fuery is the youngest, you can tell that by, well, everything he does. We know Roy's age because of the show/manga. (We also know the Hughes was born the same year though I think he's older.)

Beleive it or not, I think Falman isn't that old, it's just his hair color! ^^

I was actually thinking Roy and Riza were about the same age, just Roy was older, since I heard he was nearing 30 years old, and I also read that Fuery was at least 18 years old.

Really? Falman's face just seems so.... drawn, know what I mean?

I believe that someone said it's confirmed that Roy and Riza are four years apart. I can't remember where I heard that though.

yeah, I know what you mean. Either that or he's just so skeletor in the face or something

In one of the recent gaidens (I believe it was Red...), there was a timeline of births/events and Roy and Maes are listed as being 29 years old. In the same book, Arakawa-sensei statest that Riza is four years younger than Roy, making her 25 years old.

I've also heard that Havoc is about a year younger than Riza, making him 24, and since he and Breda have been hinting at being in the same graduating class from military school, I assume he's the same age.

My God, there are so many spelling/grammar mistakes in that post it's not funny XD

Havoc is younger? I always thought with the whole romantic rivalry thing, Roy and Havoc would be the same age.

Roy and Hughes were born in 1885.
Hawkeye was born in 1889.
Ed and Winry were born in 1899.
Al was born in 1900.

that's all i could find about birthdates:(
So...You're right about Roy and Riza's age, anyway :)
RW Grimmgrimm222001 on March 3rd, 2006 09:57 pm (UTC)
Are the birthdates listed somewhere or did you just do math with the manga's current date and ages? (just curious)

I also noticed I was born the same year as Riza (give or take 100 years) xD...I'm such a loser

I was born exactly 100 years after Roy and Maes. Don't feel like too much of a loser, as I'm ancient.

Well, that's okay. Even though I, personally, like the manga better, the fic I'm writing is post-movie simply because it's done. I just wanted to have a better grip on the ages so I can keep it closer to canon.

The Complete Book, Story Side, also lists Roy and Hughes' birthyear correctly, so I'd say it's a reliable source of information. An even better hint that 25 is a reliable comes from one of the 4koma omake, in which Hawkeye is horrified that someone is discussing her age. Though slightly antiquated now (but still joked about), women in Japan used to be considered unmarriable if they reached 25. It's reasonable to assume that her horror comes from that.
nintendocatnintendocat on March 2nd, 2006 07:21 pm (UTC)
No way! What Omake is that? I've got to see it. (Major Riza fan if you can't tell by all of my icons.)
Mari: Harem - shuurinkaitou_marina on March 2nd, 2006 07:31 pm (UTC)
I think it was one of the ones from the book that was all 4koma, but I can't be entirely sure. I don't think I have it saved, but I'm sure someone around here does.

Hmm, It's against the rules to post asking for something, isn't it? Darn.

gah. i was so sure i had this in english! ok this is what it says:
(the one on the right)

al: we sure do get a lot of fanmail asking asking about specific things about characters.
ed: yeah. (um..)
al: especailly a certain person's height!
ed: well why don't we ask someone. hey there's lt. hawkeye! exactly how old are you?
hawkeye: *doom*
omnipotent backround: that day they learned never to ask women about their age.
roy: you guys are crazy!

or something. that was from memory.

if anyone's curious, this is what the other side says:

riza: you got some valentine's day chocolate.
roy: oh ho! it seems more unsuspecting ladies have fallen victim to my irresistable manliness!
card: oh how i love the colonel who is useless on rainy days!
i don't remember what the rest of it says.


if anyone has this in english i will give you cookies!

They didn't "make it up," they adjusted it to fit the anime's plot. Hawkeye's dateyear wouldn't affect the plot of the anime at all, so what reason would they have to change it? Arakawa did give Studio BONES pretty much all the details of the series.

so what reason would they have to change it?

they didn´t have any reason to change all the other many things they changed and see what came out of it.

even if Arakawa did gave them the details we can´t be sure they used them. as long we are concerned Hawkeye´s age is unknown in canon. anything else is pure speculation.
Emmagretchen8642 on March 2nd, 2006 04:48 pm (UTC)
i'm basically positive that riza is 25. roy's definately 29... haha. dunno about the others though.
Bringing Order into your Chaosokami_hu on March 2nd, 2006 06:09 pm (UTC)
We use to say Fury's 23. And I think Farman's about 40-45.
nintendocatnintendocat on March 2nd, 2006 06:17 pm (UTC)
Really? I can see that, though I always thought Fuery would be closer to 20. Then again, he is a master sergeant so he must have been there at least a little while.
rukushorukusho on March 2nd, 2006 11:23 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I've seen Havoc listed as a year younger than Riza a couple of places.
nintendocatnintendocat on March 2nd, 2006 11:27 pm (UTC)
That's so weird. Either he is or people are looking at ranks to figure out the ages. Then again, Roy's young for a colonel which throws that out of wack.
[★i slipped on my slippers]ceasefire on March 3rd, 2006 07:31 am (UTC)
Assuming that Havoc enlisted as soon as he was old enough, and assuming that he wasn't actually in Ishvar, I'd say he's 23/24. I doubt he'd be older than Roy; he's just a big, tall boy. XD

Hawkeye was born in 1889, making her 25/26 when Roy's 29/30. Roy and Hughes are the same age. I'd say Breda's the same age as Havoc, give or take a few years, and I really have no clue about Farman, they wouldn't accept him into the army if he was any older than mid-30s, I don't think.
