I have a Question. Can I have a Really old Marine? Not necessarily physically but age wise?

Kinda shooting for a "The Ancient" vibe. For those of you that know the character from the game. http://dow.wikia.com/wiki/The_Ancient there are some spoilers though if you haven't played.

Also what kind of age would be my upper limit? I won't go older than dante, and in fact will be younger by a few centuries.

I think there would be a limit in terms of how old a marine would be when they are sent to the DW as the marine gets older they are likely to get killed easier i believe as even space marines feel their age at some point.

If you plan on being old then its likely you would be on permanent secondment to the Watch.
I think its really up to interpretation.

Marines never really get to live long enough to figure out what their "natural" lifespan would be.

Edit: Also my Character being a Permanent Member might make sense though as well. As the Chapter I chose has no Lore, but is an Official GW Chapter.

Character type I am shooting for. Nothing more, Nothing less.

I just wanted a Character that has lived long enough to do everything, and be very capable at it.

If its really such a Problem then nevermind. Different interpretations for different folks.
