Good point.  In fact, since Khaavren seems to be 95 in actuality
when we first meet him, but perhaps equivalent to 17 to 19 in
human development, one could assume that they mature relatively
faster and are fertile longer.  ( a factor of 5 in reaching
maturity, a factor of many tens in lifetime ?  )   Thus
strengthening your point.
