Ok, I didn't find any topic that would have answered to this.
Even though I've been FMA fan for years, I can't remember has Edo's age been mentioned in manga? I mean how old is he NOW? Still 15-16 years? This just came to my mind when I read the manga and Edo looked so.. mature. biggrin.gif But if you compare Edo's face in first and last chapters, I think the difference can be seen. O_o And, how about other FMA characters?
If there's no topic for this, then go on and talk about characters ages here. ^o^

In the beginning of vol. 9 Winry asked, if Ed was almost 16. (Which he is, in my opinion, anyway) I think we'll see Ed's 16th birthday pretty soon in the manga.

Oh, BTW. Does anyone know the age difference between Roy and Riza? I've heard it is four years but...

Winry and Roy both said Ed is "almost sixteen" in Chapter 34, and since then it's probably been around a month in canon? Anyway, his birthday is in the winter, and currently it's "almost winter." (Well, it's winter in the north already, of course.)

Other ages I can recall: Al is 14, Ling is 15, Roy has turned 30, Winry said she's the same age as Ed in Chapter 9, so unless she's had a birthday during the story she's 15 too....

Yeah.
And there is some pretty dramatic differences from Ed Volume one and the current one. You don't really notice the transformation unless you compare them...
He's eyes get smaller and he's nose gets bigger, among other things.

I'm pretty sure you all have it correct so far, though;
Edward is Fifteen going on Sixteen, Winry is Fifteen, Alphonse is 14, Ling is 15 and Ran-Fan is probably around the same age, perhaps a year older.

Which has been mentioned already.
Huzzah.

Ed told Winry that he was almost 16, so he was 15 at the time.

Then, fast forwarding to the end of the first anime series, (FMA-1 ending spoilers ahead) when Al got his body back, Winry was narrating, and she said that Al was back as a ten year old. Then, in the movie, Al was 13, so 3 years had gone by since the time that Al had got his body back. So, Ed is probably 18 right now. This might not be true, though, because I might have mistaken somewhere... unsure.gif

I tried looking up Riza's age somewhere, it just said "Around 25" blink.gif That was all... Roy turned 30? When? @@"

Yeah, in the manga when Ling, Ed and Winry were there, he asked Ling his age, who said 15, and Winry asked Ed, "Aren't you almost 16?"

I can't imagine Ran fan being older than Ling.. blink.gif

Are we sure Winry wasnt just counting it? In Japan, they have a habit of counting your age from New Years so it adds a year to your total age. This is basically called the old "Kazoe" or "Counting It" system where you would be considered to be 1 year old the on the day you were born and Everyone is considered to be one year older at New Year.

Okay let me be more specific here. According to the Manga timeline, Ed was born on 1899. The Manga's current time is 1914. Now 1914 -1899 = 15. Assuming that it is still currently 1914, this would mean that Ed is suppose to be 15 in 1914 and he's not going to grow any older until he hits his birthday next year in 1915. Now by "counting it," Ed would be considered to be 16 years old even though it is still 1914.

Sorry for bumping this thread up quite a way. ¬¬

I was wondering if anyone had any ideas about Scieszka's birthday, or even age. I'm guessing she's in her early to mid-twenties. What does everyone else think?

No clues as to Birthday but I would say the same as you in that she seems in her 20's. She gets along well with Winry and seems fairly new to the world of being alone

Short answer: old
Long answer: However long ago Xerxes was destroyed + middle agedness. Arakawa's sketches show Ed at 40 years old to look amazingly like Hohenheim as we know him, so it can be inferred that Hohenheim was about 40 before he got all Stoned. How long ago was Xerxes transmuted off the map? 500 years ago or so? So maybe ~540 years old?

that makes sense, though I'm not sure about Xerxes being destroyed... not that I don't believe you I just can't remember if or when they stated it x.x

Characters' Ages?

Apologies if this topic hasn't been made before or I'm missing anything blindingly obvious.

I know Ed and Al's age is revealed in the manga/anime and technically Winry's too, I think...But it just occured to me that I don't know how old any of the other characters are. Particularly those with families and long running military careers. And I can't seem to find anything on Izumi's age anywhere.

Anyone know 'em? Guesses? Discussion?

Roy was 29 at the start of the series but eventually turns 30. I don't remember the exact volume but Arakawa makes a joke about it.

We also know Ling's age but I am not sure if that will be considered a spoiler.

Also although it was never revealed I am convinced Mei is older than she looks. smile.gif

Well, Arakawa never determined the date of birth of any of the FMA characters (aside the years), as far as I'm concerned. The only thing I remember her saying is that Ed's bday was on winter.
The rest of them, I remember her saying she doesn't like to fix any characteristics that might influence on the story unless they're a part of the plot, 'cause that can get in the way of what she wants to do and sorta diminish her scope of action.

There's also some ages, like Roy's (he and Hughes were born in 1885) and you can imply some ages like Riza's and Havoc's, since they were both in the same class at the Military Academy and were in their senior year when Riza went to Ishbal, which means they're both between 26-28 years old, nowdays... But that's about it, isn't it??
