Hi, Welcome to OA!

Please feel free to join in on any discussions that grab your interest or start new ones if you are so inclined.

I normally also tell new members to feel free to ask us questions, but you've obviously already got that part down. Big Grin

Re your specific questions:

1. We don't have any 'officially oldest' named being in the setting. But the oldest Sephirotic empires (as currently written - things change sometimes around here) were founded in the 1700-2300 AT time frame and the 'present day' in OA is 10,600 AT. The ruling archai of those empires weren't at the same S-level as they are now, but were likely some form of transapient. So they are all likely in the 8000 yrs old plus range, roughly speaking.

There is/are also this being/clade of beings who are determined to 'live forever or die trying' (LINK) which claims to be older still (although whether anyone really believes them is a matter of some debate).

2. The Terragen Bubble is constantly expanding at a substantial fraction of the speed of light, so the answer to this is constantly changing. However, we generally consider 10,600 AT to be the 'present day' for the setting (more or less) - and referring to the second graph on this page - we see that Terragens have reached around 9300-9500 light years from Sol (with a bit of help from pre-existing xenosophont wormholes).

If you only want to consider what Terragens have done on their own, refer to the first graph on the same page which shows a max expansion of around 6500 ly or so.

Hope this helps and once again - Welcome to OA! Smile
Thanks! This was helpful!
