Well he's technically old. But he's 17 in manual and has the body of one too. (A battle hardened one at least.) If I remember the story correctly: Sigmund is a king. Cappell was born on a lunar eclipse, making him not receive a lunarglyph at birth and making him an unblessed. Generally, people without lunarglyphs were outkast by society (exiled or killed). Cappell was exiled. Sigmund's wife, the queen, and mother of Cappell...died shortly after his birth. Sigmund abandons his kingdom due to the emotional damage of [basically he just lost his entire family]. Sigmund gets his lunarglyph removed but the process turns him into an infant. And that's why the game says both Sigmund and Cappell are the same age. And through the whole beginning of the game I thought they were lost twins or something.
