Granby's DOB comes from Chapter 1 of BPW (summer of 1806), where Laurence describes him as looking "younger than his twenty years and six." - whitearrow

Is it supposed to be 1780? --Strangerface 19:57, 4 October 2006 (PDT)

Oops! Fixed :) - whitearrow

I'm not sure, but after re-reading Throne of Jade I get the impression that Granby did not refuse to become captain to Obversaria's egg, but to become Lloyd's replacement as Excidium's first lieutenant. It would still be a promotion, because Excidium is a formation leader with 70 years of experience. But since English is not my first language, I would be grateful if someone confirmed it. The passage is on page 15 in my edition. Natli
