There's no set-in-stone minimum; it's a Storyteller call.

The reason that Mnemon hasn't attained Essence 6 isn't necessarily 100% a lack of sufficient age, although it's certainly an influential factor.

When it comes to things that are solely in the realm of Storyteller judgment, I'm not sure the reasonable person standard is of much use. Want to have an Essence 6 Dragon-Blood in your game? Have one. Just recognize that such a character is going to tremendously powerful, one who's cultivated their Essence and supernatural might beyond that of truly mighty figures such as Mnemon, Ragara, and Cevis Ghandarva, someone who could genuinely lay claim to the title of the most powerful Dragon-Blood alive.

(Or at least, contest it, if it turns out the Scarlet Empress is still around)

As i understand, if a lunar transforms into an animal with a higher strength score he treats the difference as charms bonus dice, but what happens if it transforms into a weaker animal? Can he use his normal strength?
Yes, with the exception of feats of strength.

So, this is weird question but one I thought would be an issue because it mirrors real life, what happens if a teenage dragon-blooded gets pregnant during secondary school? Is it a juno situation or a shotgun wedding?
I don't think we elaborated on this in Dragon-Blooded? A shotgun wedding seems highly unlikely. The father has no claim on the child, his poor judgment makes him an unsuitable husband, and neither parent is in any position yet to properly raise offspring. Most likely, the child will be adopted by another household within the mother's house.

While nothing's set in stone, my current inclination would be to include a sizable write-up of Yu-Shan in the Sidereals book, with a companion book covering Getimians.

I get why Mnemon would be rolled back to Essence 5, and I am all for it, but do you think we're ever liable to see a more powerful Terrestrial?
I don't think we're ever going to stat up the Scarlet Empress, no.

We have, and the first drafts of the chapter fiction starring them are awesome. There's one Manipulation Charm I wrote based entirely on what the signature Changing Moon does in one of them.

A book on the Demon City is so far in the future that it wouldn't be productive to make any statements one way or the other.

There's a whole tree of Charms coming out the basic duplicate-making Charm. ^_^

It's a thing. Raksi, Lilith, and Ma-Ha-Suchi are all Essence 6+.
