With everybody asking questions on Lars’s immortality, I decided to do my own research.
When Steven listened to Lars’s heartbeat it took 6 seconds per beat or 12 bpm (Beats Per Minute). This is far less than the average bpm for a human around Lars’s age. It would usually be 70-100 bpm on average (to keep it simple I used 80 bpm). This means his heart is beating at 15% the average for a boy his age. So his body is functioning at 15% of the time it normally would be. So if his body ages at that rate given the average male life expectancy being around 80 years would mean he will live to 1,200 years!
Applying this to Lion is pretty easy, the average bpm of a healthy lion is about 60 bpm, giving our lion 9 bpm. Lions in the wild live to be about 16 making our lion live to about 240 years.In “Buddy’s Book” Rose is seen with lions and many people theorize one of them died and that’s how Lion was created. In “Historical Friction” it is stated that beach city was founded nearly 200 years ago. So that would make lion around 200 years old give or take.
Some people have said that a number of leaves on the each tree represents the amount of time they have left, Lars’s tree is full and young, while Lion’s has only a few clumps of leaves. This corresponds quite nicely, with Lars having over a 1,000 years left and lion having only about 40.

Tree of Time theory:
To the left is Lion’s tree and to the right is Lars’ new tree. What if the leaves on the trees represent how much time left they have to live?
We know their hearts beat very slowly, so they are still partly organic, so they age very slow. Lion is hundreds of years old so his leaves are nearly gone, meaning he is closer to the end of his life. Lars was just transformed, so he still has all of his leaves and will likely live for a few hundred years
