Hughes Age  
Needed information for a fic. How old is Hughes? Does it even say? If not, how old would you assume? The series takes place in 1915, right? Gluttony is over 130 years old in the anime, right?

The fic is pretty much done, despite me having to know what year it takes place in. XP

It doesn't say, I think, but I assume he is around 30, Roy's age, maybe a little older.

Gluttony is assumed to be over 130 years old (as is Envy) as Greed was stated to be sealed over 130 years ago by Envy and he knew Gluttony (but didn't know Anime!Sloth, Anime!Wrath, Lust, Manga!Wrath...and maybe Anime!Pride?)

The series takes place xx15. The only hint to the date I know of is Ed's engravings, which state that the year they burnt down their house is xx10...I guess we can assume it's the 1910s, but yeah, it could be the 1810s, of the 4010s...it's a fantasy world, so the chronology of technology doesn't necessarily need to follow our world's (Though it is suspiciously familiar to the early 1900's, so yeah...for all intensive purposes might as well say it's 1915.)

As for Hughes' age...it might state it in the official manga guidebook or somewhere else, but I don't know and can't find it anywhere, so I'm not sure. He seems to be in his 30s-40s though...

After spending many hours and days squinting at his tombstone in the manga (ow.) I have come to the conclusion that Hughes was 30 at the time of his death (Roy was probably born in 1885 and the tombstone had a 4-like number at the end so...)

Series takes place in 1914 I'm told. o.o;

Well, if Ed left his house when he was 10, and it was 1910 at the time, that should make it about 1915 or 1916, shouldn't it?

But thank you very much! XD

Episode 1 sez: Older brother 11, younger brother 10. Ed was months, maybe weeks away from his 12th birthday when he burned down his home.

Episode 1 sez: Continental year 1910. Fast forward to Ed being 16, Continental year 1915, aye.

Ed burned down his house when he was 11, in the year 1910. He's 15 in the first episode. Therefore, the series must start in the year 1914, not accounting for flashbacks. (Ed doesn't turn 16 until episode 20-something, after that whole mess with the 5th laboratory. Winry gets a pie from Gracia that they eat on the train, remember?)

Since Ed's birthday is in winter it's probably in either December, January, or February. To make myself less insane, I'll say January.

Hughes is killed right after Ed's birthday, so assuming that Ed turns 16 in January, Hughes dies in 1915. Now, since Mustang is 14 years older than Ed (...right?) he must be 29 or 30 when Hughes dies. Assuming that Hughes is around the same age as Mustang, in the series he must be in his late twenties or (possibly) his early thirties.

...I've put waaay to much thought into this. ^^;
