How Old Do You Think Tabaluga Is?

Post by SlyDragoon16 on Fri Jan 13, 2012 3:01 pm

I'm certain that those who have, or are planning to write fanfics about him would be curious to know something about his age. Since the cartoon gave no indication of his age I think that we, this community, should decide on an age for him. Personally I think he is about 9 or 10 years somewhere near the age of maturity since he starts showing discontent for childish activities during the "River of Time" Episode.

If you think that he is younger, older or you actually know with almost complete certainty what his age is, please put it your post.

Have fun!

It as a great and very original idea of you to create this poll! I personally had something like this in my sub-consciousness but kinda couldn't come to this decision myself lol Very Happy
So, in my opinion, he is 11-12 years old in the end of season 1, because (as Sly already mentioned) in the "Flow of Time" episode, he acts like a teenager, doesn't want to be a child anymore, and seems to be already ready to accept the legacy his father passed to him after his death. But I don't think he isn't older because, at first he is a young teenager(just became the one) and doesn't seem very mature yet.

And, seasons 2 and 3 were disappointing to me, cause in them he doesn't seem older, in season 2 he seems quite childish even, not exactly like he'd been through everything, all those horrors that happened during his childhood, having to protect everything and everyone from a tyrant, who often comes up with his selfish schemes. He was so young,he had to have a happy and entertaining childhood, but he still found strength in himself and be smart enough to resist evil. This had to be something...

so, in my opinion he is 11-12 years old in season 1, not too young, not too old Smile

In the music albums and in the musicals too, they say he's 7 years old. The german wikipedia page states he is 7 dragon-years old, and one dragon-year covers 100 human years. So he'd be like 700 years old in the original story...
I don't know exactly how old he could be in the cartoon though. 700 years is too old, and 7 years is too young. I think he's around 10-11 at most. We saw him hatching in the first episode, so it can't have passed much time between the beginning and the ending of the first season. I think the first season covers his first 10 years of life more or less.

i had to think it over before answering and it hasn't been easy,finally i chose 9-10,so a middle course between sergey's and lucia's answers.we see him hatching at the beginning of the cartoon,then he gets more and more mature and begins to have his responsabilities,his proofs(see "the flow of time" for example,or when he builds a ship for his mission and becomes the captain),learns from his mistakes,knows the importance of all the elements in nature and how to deal with arktos etc. but he's also still a bit innocent as all young people,from example he asks nessaja if he's going to die after his first shedding...how tender!in short,our friend is growing well,but he's still super cute baby dragon for me *.*

I don't quite agree with the idea from wikipedia, it is said that a dragon is described as how many dragon-years it has lived which covers a hundred human years. In my opinion, it covers at most 10 human years. I remember in one episode of season 1, Tabaluga said that he don't feel like to play any more. While Nassają considered this as Tabaluga's being ready to take the responsibility of protecting his friend and the greenland which is passed from his father. Generally speaking, to human beings, such kind of feeling starts few years before they become an adult. However, dragons are a totally different and mysterious species, maybe they can acquire abilities and skills much earlier.
