One Week Later

Alberich meets King's Own Talamir for the first time. (Exile's Honor: Chapter One)

King’s Own Herald Talamir is forty years old. (Exile's Honor: Chapter One)

**Hypothesis: Exile's Honor: Chapter One places Talamir's age between forty and fifty years old. Therefore I’m placing his age at forty years old. This may change later with more information**

Heraldic Trainee Alberich meets Herald Jadus for the first time. (Exile's Honor: Chapter Three)

Herald Jadus is thirty-six years old.

*Hypothesis: In Exile's Honor: Chapter Three Alberich places Jadus at middle age. Supposing that Jadus was twenty when he was Elcarth’s Counselor during internship, this places him at about thirty-six years old.*

Herald Alberich meets Heraldic Trainee Myste Willenger, Chosen by Companion Alerian, for the first time. (Exile's Honor: Chapter Eight*

Heraldic Trainee Myste Willenger is middle-aged.

**Hypothesis: In these books middle-aged makes me think they are between the ages of thirty-five and forty. I am placing Myste’s age at thirty-five since it is impolite to guess a woman’s age.**

Talamir and Dethor agree and Alberich "lends" his memories, with the help of Mindhealer Crathach, to four Heralds. Herald Orven, Herald Laika, eighteen-year-old Herald Wethes, and one other older Herald are all volunteers for this treatment. This is the first time Alberich meets Mindhealer Crathach. (Exile's Honor: Chapter Ten)

Selenay tries to teach Alberich how to fish. He doesn’t do well at all. (Exile's Honor: Chapter Ten)

Alberich cracks his first public joke since coming to Valdemar. (Exile's Honor: Chapter Ten)

**Possible Discrepancy**

Myste Willenger, Chosen by Companion Alerian, becomes a full Herald and also becomes Herald Chronicler-Second with expectations of becoming Herald-Chronicler in one or two years. (Exile's Honor: Chapter Eleven)
