“’Re'lar Kvothe,’ he said seriously. ‘I am trying to wake your sleeping mind to the subtle language the world is whispering. I am trying to seduce you into understanding.

“It had flaws, but what does that matter when it comes to matters of the heart? We love what we love. Reason does not enter into it. In many ways, unwise love is the truest love. Anyone can love a thing because. That’s as easy as putting a penny in your pocket. But to love something despite. To know the flaws and love them too. That is rare and pure and perfect.” WMF Ch. 6: Love

And at the end of Civil War, if we’re to take the timeline to be occurring as it was released, then he was only 30 years old.
