Timeline[edit]

Three generations ago, the warrior Jora and her brother Svanir faced temptation with a dark power. - It's nearly 300 years ago, so "Three generations ago" seems to be wrong. Or does anyone know more?--Aylia (talk) 22:57, 15 February 2017 (UTC)

247 years as of that dialogue, to be exact. Norn live longer than humans, so their generations would in turn be longer. Most humans would live to 80-90 by old age, while norn can easily live past 120. So for Jhavi Jorasdottir to be Jora's great granddaughter isn't unlikely, and that would make it 3 generations ago.
Alternatively, or rather in addition, Anet seems to have a trouble with generation spans (Gwen's Grave calls Gwen and Kieran Logan's great grandparents, and Noran while old apparently was alive and married with kids ~70 years ago but they died after centaurs came in force which was mostly beginning ~50 years ago), and general age of things (Tarir is called "ancient" despite being ~200 years ago).
