Finally got around to doing the Daedric Wars after Morrowind & the MQ in all 3 base game zones. I knew the Mer had long lives (Mannimarco being an ultra extreme outlier). But didn't realize Men could also achieve this with the help of a demi god or two. lol
Case in point, Proctor Luciana Pullo, Sotha Sil's right hand Capo in Clockwork City. According to her journal, she was fatally injured during the war with the Akaviri. The discharge from the magical weapon she'd summoned had somehow backfired, horrifically disfiguring her face and destroying her limbs. And to make it worse, she was unaware she was pregnant. If it weren't for Sotha Sil rescuing her (and remaking her in his image) she and her unborn son would've certainly died.
That being said, her journal of these events is dated 1E 2712
. The first era ended in1E 2920
According to my Tamriel Time clock, the current date is 2E 615
.That makes her 823 years old by the time you meet her in the Clockwork City at end of Where Shadows Lie quest
It seems becoming a robotized Factorum is the path to immortality for Men. Same for non Mer Apostles from the other races. I wonder what the ideal lifespan is for factorized humans like her? Does anyone have any hard numbers based on lore? Dunmer Mer Apostles would likely exceed 1,000 years based on Luciana's extended age alone. Couldn't find any specifics of this on USEP unfortunately.
