Characters by age

I've had several queries from people who'd like to read about characters at a certain age. (Sometimes that's what someone's in the mood for, sometimes for a reading challenge). I'm glad to oblige with that info!   A few notes about these lists, to make them simpler:
  • Many characters appear in multiple books. I've listed them anywhere they're a point of view character.
  • I've used their age in the majority of a book (a few books have time skips).
  • If a couple are in the same category in a book, they have one listing. If one of them's in their 20s and the other in their 30s, they're listed individually in the appropriate places.
  • The younger character(s) is listed first.
  • Books are listed in chronological order within each section.
  Since many characters appear in multiple books, I've included any book where they're a point of view character and their age, and in a few places some useful notes.
