IN CASE Jink = Korafay wrapstuff would make sense.
Korafay is born in TFQ Prologue. The Final Quest ist announced as a decades spanning adventure - definitely long enought for Chitter to grow up as a wolfrider. Jink is shown growing up in the space travelling Palace.
The time discrepancy could (only ?) be explained by Korafay going in wrapstuff as an infant and being "uncocooned" shortly before the takeoff.
