Nobody knows how old her father was, do they?  So he could have been anywhere from say, 20 to 200 for all we know.  Since Walkers aren't human, all bets are off.  Since Mercy is only 31 or 32, she might not see anything yet to give her a clue.

yes but mercy may have werewolves for children too and they wont need to be changed.  my guess is that if they change human children they will be the same age as in montana in the marrok's pack and that they might have bran do it himself since he has the best control of all

and i aggree with you taranis, that i think sam would be selfish if he did that, but i don't think he is and i think that there is something he and bran know that mercy doesn't - which means we don't

I see your point, Reu and I totally agree.  My main problem was that if Mercy has a normal lifespan, Sam would be using her.  But I think Kiersten is right.  Sam and Bran must know something Mercy doesn't...

yes and i don't think sam would want to use mercy that way so there must be something that mercy doesn't know that bran and sam do - and thanks taranis for agreeing

I or one of the other moderators will split this topic to the discussion area once it has a response from Patty.

Got it!  I was just checking who the mod was for this subject, I was going to tell you how to find it, so you could message directly, although I would have sent one for you if Grey hadn't already seen this.

I agree with the others who feel Mercy's lifespan maybe longer than a human and in the book all the supernatural beings have longevity or immortality - the fae, vamps and the werewolves all have this. Why not Walkers. Although the witches aren't supernatural beings they are essentially human  although they may wield magic/power.
