- Number Five mentioned in LL4 that his Cêpan was older than all the other known Cêpan, putting Albert in his late 50s or early 60s when he died.
- It is unknown what the Loric age of majority is, so Sandor's age cannot be confirmed; it is known, however, that he is the youngest among the nine Cêpan, thus younger than Adelina and hence at most in his 20s when Lorien fell.
- In Return to Paradise Mark mentions that he is in the final semester of High School. Thus making him a High School Senior and 17 or 18 years old.
- According to Lexa, this occured five Loric years before the Fall of Lorien. This article assumes that the duration of a year is approximately equal on both planets.
- This date is taken from The Power of Six's estimation of a full moon in February 2011 and the recounts of Four during his travels. See relevant section in year 2011.
- Four was 4 years old during the Fall of Lorien. See LL1(1,23).
- The recount by Malcolm explains the presence of the Loric skeleton in his backyard bunker, as well as Sandor's observations of the Elders in TLF5.
- The date of formation of the Greeters is debatable, for LL2(18) suggests that the Greeters had been given a transmission device as early as 1996.
