I think that corpora doesn't allow for aging.

I joined the SCA in the spring of 1985. I decided that it would be easy 
for me to identify with my persona if I always knew what the date was 
for him. So "Kein MacEwan" came to Ansteorra in the spring of 1585. He 
has been here for 11 years. In 4 years I will celebrate the end of the 
millenium while Kein is celebrating the end of the 16th century. In 3 
more years, Kein will celebrate the ascension of a Scot to the throne 
of England. 
I think that I will have earned the right to play out of period. Just 
my opinion.

Kein (who doesn't noramally talk about himself in the third person)
