does it really even matter

Mary's as tall as the maids, so I'd put her 16/17ish, yeah? I don't think they ever say how much older than Guy she is, and the only character profiles I found by googling didn't say either.

Mary is older than Guy by X amount, X being that magic number between the age of a boy--who grew up with an older girl just when he begins to take an interest in the difference between boys and girls--and said older girl, who becomes an irreplaceable ideal whose shadow the boy unconsciously seeks throughout the rest of his life. If the girl dies in her springtime of youth the memory is further ingrained in the boys memory.

Why yes, I do like the idea that Guy sees a shadow of Mary in Natalia and I don't ship undead-Mary/Guy at all.

Just what I need, another boy with a sister complex. (My main reason for trying to figure out how old she was is that when Guy sees her as replica!Mary, he's struck by how he's now older than his older sister. But that assumes I'm ever going to write that thing.)

Yeah, I do think he'd respond to Natalia's courage and compassion, and if that reminded him of Mary in any way, well, there you go.

I was reading one thread where a poster said Guy/Nat wouldn't work because Guy wouldn't leave Malkuth and Natalia wouldn't leave her country and her people. Well, she wouldn't have to leave her country, and I don't know that Guy is soooo attached to Grand Chokmah, even though he builds a house there. He's from Hod, and Hod's gone. He lived in Baticul longer than he lived anywhere else. His house in Malkuth's capital could be where they'd stay when they were visiting on official business, or even on holiday. See, I've thought this all through!

Btw, did you ever read my finished G/N piece, or are you abiding by the "if you can't say anything nice" rule, which is valid. And if you've seen the latest episode, my Anise drabble should make sense now.

A milestone in Guy's life would be his 16/17th/18th birthday, when he finally becomes older than Mary and he realizes that he's leaving her behind. Perhaps he vanishes from the group or if this happens prior to the events of the game, Natalia finds him brooding over it.

I should have read it, and I should have left a comment... let me check again.

That's a good way to go about it, too. I'll file that away for later.
