    Formed from a small discussion in the Who's Sexy thread.

    So, how old do you think the characters are?

    Here are some of what I think:

    Sue: Around 10-14 yrs
    Kazuma: 18
    Momorin: 35
    Booster: 50s

    Etc, etc.

    I would think that Jenka would be much older than that, perhaps hundreds of more years. Since Misery is like, immortal or something like that.

    WHAT. MOROMIN? 30? KAZUMA? 19 WHAAAAT? DID YOU EVEN THINK THAT ONE THROUGH, YAKKERS?
    I will modify that:
    Sue: 10
    King: 10
    Kazuma: 19
    Momorin: 39
    Booster: 65
    Jenka: 943
    Toroko: 3
    Mimigas have an average lifespan of 15 years. Ever wonder why only one Mimiga remembered the Red Flower War?
    Now for my own:
    Quote: (looks like) 14
    Curly: (looks like) 14
    Fuyijauighjh Date: 41
    Misery: 918
    Balrog: I HAVE NO CLUE
    Chaco: 8

    Wouldn't Misery be younger, since 25 would have been kind of young (seeing as she's immortal) for jenka to give birth to her? I'd say they're at least 100 years apart.


    Momorin: 41, assuming she didn't get knocked up straight out of highschool
    Toroko: 6, she can talk so she's gotta be older than 3, even in mimiga years.
    Sue: 11, You're pretty much spot on I'd say
    Chaco: 8 seems good if we're in mimiga years.
    Booster: 55, I don't think he'd have that kind of mobility he possesses (walking) if he was 65. Plus his face is wrinkle free. And if I recall he isn't directly related to anyone...

    Mimigas obviously develop things like speech faster than humans. I could make a big post about the Mimiga mind and body from birth to death, but I'm too tired right now. I think 6 is too old. By 6, Mimigas shold be able to be warriors and hunters and sex slaves and stuff like that.
    I also think Toroko is a lot younger than some of the perverts here think she is. At least, I hope so.

    Why? Why would you hope so? Are you wishing that perverts are actually lusting for a child rather than a mature mimiga??? If so, you are a sick, sick bastard.
    [/non-seriousness]

    Of course, with the mimiga's mind and body from birth to death, we are yet again theorizing on what is many assumptions, leading the theory to be more implausible. And I never saw any evidence of Mimiga sex slaves. 'Course, the only female mimigas in the game are chaco, chie, toroko, and sue, so it's hard to say. Unless some of the working mimigas were female. Hard to say.....

    Misery is not that old, most of her life has been in stasis. She is severely limited with her magic compared to Ballos or Jenka.

    Jenka has been around for a long time, though do I believe that she is only capable of extending her life and has limits.

    Ballos on the other hand seems to have been incapable of dying from old age.

    Most of the Mimiga were either killed or "never seen again" as of the end of the war. All of the Mimiga were either young or old with nothing inbetween ten years after the war. Who would enlist the young or the elderly in a war?

    The 15 year lifespan thing is almost plausible though. But then what is with the whole age gap thing? Everyone besides Zett look young. Not to mention that (if I recall) Zett is Chie's grandfather, which is difficult to pull off with a 15 year lifespan.

    The average lifespan of a Mimiga should be between 40-50, not 15. If a Mimiga's mind matures at a rate analogue to that of a human one, then at most they might achieve the intelligence of an eight to nine-year-old child, and the average would probably be around seven years. Not to mention that creatures with brains of similar size to humans live about as long, such as the great apes who live to be around 40 years old, or dolphins who can live to 50, and they don't build houses.

    I'm going to assume "analogue" means "similar". Stop using big words around me.
    Anyway, I think Mimigas mature faster than humans, so that they hit their peak around 7 or 8, and the life after their peak is relatively short. Mimigas are not as intelligent as humans, but they're not stupid either. Their brain develops differently than ours. I'm sorry, it's just that I'm basing my theory on rabbits.
    And Jacob, it's fine if Chaco is 8 as long as she matures faster than humans. Some parts of her brain are different. Use your imagination to somehow turn that into an excuse for her to want to have sex with you.

    Respect your elders. And do other things.

    Unless you speak of a very small difference, you are saying that they're stupid. If the difference is negligible, every Mimiga would have to be Michael Kearny.

    Rabbits aren't nearly as big as humans, can't talk, and don't wield tools, and furthermore, they do not achieve the intelligence of an adult human in six years or less.

    Not even a teenager.

    Fuck.

    Sorry but although Mimigas are based on rabbits in design, for the purpose of the story Mimigas and Rabbits are not related as was pointed out in the CS Earth thread. It is impossible for the process of evolution to produce a Mimiga from a Rabbit since it strips them of several natural defences for a loooooonng period of time (hundreds of thousands, maybe millions, of years). Since evolution works as minor changes per generation over millions of years with good changes bred back into the species and bad changes culled by natural selection you can understand how such a process is impossible. Furthermore there is no indication that Rabbits even exist on Cave Story's world and many fictional anthromorphic-like races are usually given longer lifespans than their standard animal counterparts.

    I support this theory. Though I would have guessed thirty-something.

    Okay but they look like rabbits. Why can't I draw more similarities between them and rabbits in my theories? I never said that they evolved from rabbits, or that rabbits even exist in Cave Story. They could be aliens! BUT THEY ARE RABBIT-LIKE ALIENS.
