Hmm... how long do you suppose a human's lifespan in the Forevergreen jungle may be? 'cuz Wavelet spent "five human generations" in that village.
Also - proof that I was right about Redcrest being younger than most elders! :D Coral's body was said to have been placed in one of his FIRST boats, so he had only just recently came into his wood-shaping powers when she died. You know... I'm actually starting to think he may be younger than Skimback. And now that I think about it - I have to look up when and if he was said to be an elder? Hmmm.... *dives back in WD-lore*
