  1. This assumes that the info from Pathfinder's Quest Chapter 11 about Project Iris being on its fifteenth year of work in 2658 is true. Notably, this conflicts with info from Chapter 4 about it being founded on 2654. Due to the nature of Chapter 11, this timeline will be using the info from there.
  2. Manny Hagopian confirms an error in Fight Night - Typhon's destruction is in 2715, not 2658.
  3. The events of the Gridiron cinematic were said to happen five years before Jackson's fall, which is presumed to be in 2721. See note on the aforementioned event for the 2721 dating.
  4. Bangalore said in 2734 that she's been looking for Jackson for 13 years.
  5. Assumes this was written just before Wattson's 18th birthday.
