JOF Race Ages

Hello everyone!  I haven’t yet worked on JOF Book 1, well I have a tiny bit of Chapter 5 written, but not a lot else.  However I do have something fun for everyone!  Ages of my races!  There will be a future post concerning JOF Animal Ages, this will center around mythical animals.

Werewolves:

3-15 years:: child
16-25 years:: adolescent
26-100 years:: young adult
101-750 years:: adult
751-800 years:: elder

Bred werewolves are slow-aging and keep their youth well. When one undergoes the Change and does not have werewolf blood from birth, they tend to ‘freeze’ at whatever age they were until they reach a point where they may begin aging once again. Their average lifespan is around 800 years.

Primary Gestation:: 273-day gestation period

Werebears:

0-3 years:: infant
4-13 Years:: child
