Krystal's age may not match her age in Cornerian years?

Since evidence has shown that Krystal's home planet was in a different star system Link I have been curious about one thing. If we were to look at how old Krystal was in Star Fox Adventures which was 19 years of age, because she lived in a star system do you think they might had a different orbit speed than Lylat's therefore her age in Cornerian years may be younger/older or same?

There's no evidence that Cerinia is outside Lylat. We know nothing about the planet, other than it was "doomed" and that Krystal is the "only survivor." (See Star Fox Adventures Instruction Manual)

Even if it was with another star system, we can can be fairly certain that her age is that of 19 in the same year timeframe as the rest of Lylat. And, since Star Fox has no complex backstory about the universe in which it takes place, we can assume that the designers intended or assumed that a "year" is approximately equal to 365 days, just as it is on Earth, because they didn't really think about it that hard. After all, there's no point in saying "Krystal is 19 years old" in their official statements if "years old" doesn't mean anything we can relate to. We can assume that Krystal was intended to be a young woman, just out of her teenage years, but able to at least partially take care of herself in normal circumstances.

She has the universal properties of a 19 year old girl in Adventures, and a girl in her early 20's in Assault, and so forth...

but, who really knows for sure, eh?  :D *cough* Nintendo! *cough*

Kit-Karamak included this theory in his reflections series, and I think it makes sense.

Though it is not officially confirmed Cerenia was placed in the Lylat system or not, I at least think there would have been more contact between Cerenia and the other planets if it was located in Lylat

And since it would be a huge coincidence that Cerenia has the same orbiting speed as the planets in Lylat, it makes sense that they measure years in a different way.

But Nintendo never confirmed that she was 19 Cerenian years or 19 Corenian years in Advendures, so I guess this will be a mystery for some time.

well he does have  a point there and I'm pretty sure someone posted something saying that  Cerinia wasn't offically in Lylat ,but a neighboring system(since she happend to be on Sauria ,but the question I have for this is at what age did she end up on Sauria?

In Star Fox Adventures she was at least 19 years of age stated on many sources, and Somewhere around 20 in Assault.

This is what I believe...

They haven't screwed up her age, yet. So far it makes sense

Starfox Adventures - age: 19

Assault - age: around 20. Some sites say 20 some say like a year or two older so yeah, I think they are keeping up with her they should have given her and all the other characters birthdays and make a time line of all the games to make sure everyone is aging at the same time.

I'm not sure ,but I'm going to say slower oribit making her younger than fox thus she could really be 13 instead of 20 in Cerinian years thus she would live longer than fox. But I had though about this before

You have to have evidence of this.

her age counting in saurian years is 19, in cerenian years: 19 or more/less, on cornerian years, it should be... 22-25 years old.

Yeah, sounds about right...

(Please check the thread dates, and try not to dredge)
