Whatever happened to Peter Reidinger?
 
(To clarify: Peter Reidinger of 'The Rowan', I think he was the 4th of that name?)

Is he even mentioned after 'Damia'? Is his death ever referred to? If he was alive, he'd have to be, what, ~160 by the end of the series? That's getting on a bit, even with future!tech longevity O_O

I'm also wondering a bit at David and Capella - they were adults and Towered by the time Rowan was born, so they've got to be pushing 100, bare minimum? That's gotta mean David's kids aren't exactly kids any more either - they seem a bit old to still be on such a tight leash. Did we hear anything about either David or Capella retiring during the books?

I don't recall Peter the 4th having died after "Damia". Same with David and Capella but I haven't read the books lately to be able to help you out. Probably an inconsistency that was never addressed properly in latter books.

Reidinger IV is dead as a doornail. If I recall correctly, his heart didn't take too well to the second fight with the Hivers, and he died about then. I don't recall if it was mentioned in The Rowan or Damia though, but if you search for the point when Jeff became Earth Prime, it'd be around there that he died.

David and Capella are still kicking, but at this point they have to be really old as both were trained by Siglen before The Rowan was. There's a good chance that post The Tower and the Hive they'll be replaced. David possibly by one of his kids if he had any Primes, and Capella by someone unknown.

It wasn't explicitly mentioned, but Reidinger did die some time after the second Hiver invasion. He was certainly never mentioned as being alive after that.

He did have a few T1 Primes, and found a Prime in his own area. The Tower and the Hive If I recall right.

Hope it helps.
