After the end of Xiaolin Showdown, I think Rai played leader for a while, before realizing that it gave him too much power. He wanted all of his friends to be equal and to share the power. So, he promoted them all to Shoku warriors. He talked to Master Fung about it, and made his argument that they were a new generation of warriors and needed to set their own standards. Yes, it was a big change not to have an outright leader, but having the whole team be equal made them a more cohesive team. Master Fung decided that Rai was right, and even thought this thought process showed just how good a leader he could be, he made it offical that they were all Shoku warriors. On the downside, Omi’s ego re-inflated. Win some, lose some.

The ages of the monks were never explicitly stated, but I always thought they were teenagers between 13 and 16, give or take a few months. This, of course, is just my opinion, so feel free to disagree with me or read on if you’re curious about my reasoning behind the monks’ order of seniority.
Clay has always seemed the most mature of the monks, is undoubtably the most grown, and has been confirmed to have a younger sibling who appears to be close in age to him and to the others monks, all of which implying that he is the eldest. Normally, I estimate him to be around 16.
Next, I project both Kimiko and Raimundo at age 15, with Kimiko being a few months older than Rai. Kimiko is older in my head mostly because Raimundo tends to act less maturely than both her and Clay, though that is not really an accurate indicator of age.
Omi is not the youngest in my mind because he is the smallest, but because he seems the least wise (and I mean that in the kindest way possible). While it is true that Omi was raised in unique circumstances of growing up in a Xiaolin temple, he can act like a child when it comes to new experiences and when his authority or pride is challenged. Omi is very trusting will approach dangerous situations, e.g. his reaction to strangers in New York, and he will get angry if people show him up, e.g. Clay lassoing Omi during his lesson on cheetah speed tactics, the idea that Raimundo(“his inferior”) or Kimiko(a girl) could beat him. I imagine Omi had just recently turned 13 when the show started.
Extra: Though he is not in the picture, I think Jack is 14, almost 15.
If you read all that, thank you for your time and patience. I hope you enjoyed my theories and reasonings.

Raimundo didn’t understand that his bed was a bed in the first episode, but otherwise we do not hear much about how the new monks took to their rooms. Kimiko, Raimundo, and Clay have been shown to be deep sleepers, and they were probably used to sleeping through various outside noise i.e. Kimiko and Rai both being from cities and Clay being from a ranch filled with animals. With that in mind, it makes sense that the three of them adjusted quickly to their new living arrangements.
Omi, on the other hand, is from a quiet temple and probably slept by himself in that bank of rooms until the other Xiaolin Dragons came to the temple. We also know that he balances on his head both when he meditates and when he sleeps. The pose probably helps him focus his mind and calm himself, resulting in him being able to sleep.
Hopefully, Omi adjusted like his fellow monks and now sleeps on his head sheerly out of habit. He probably finds it comfortable.

Here! Have some convoluted headcanon.
I tried submitting this to xsheadcanons, but I couldn’t figure out how to submit a jpeg from my desktop (because they wanted a URL), and I’m brand new at this Tumblr thing. Also MS Paint is the devil.
It always bugged me that Dashi and Dojo had this big argument that the time traveling wu was in either Egypt or Europe, and then have it turn up in the Xiaolin Temple gardens. How could they both forget that? Also, Dashi, you JUST USED an hourglass called the Sands of Time! What are you trying to pull here?
Then it hit me: Dashi told Omi to wait patiently. WHAT IF he was actually being literal? “Wait here, kid; I’ll be right back with a solution.” Then he went and turned his hourglass into the Sands of Time, intending to give it to Omi so the kid could go back home. However, when he got back, Omi was gone, and Dashi was left with the Sands of Time.
Let’s see… what other plot holes are walking around in this show? Oh, hello there, Master Monk Guan! You’re looking dapper for a non-evil 1,500-year-old man!
Now the only question is…
What’s the name of the other time-traveling shen gong wu in Egypt/Europe?

"The reason why Omi has such a big ego is because he’s very passionate about what he does (also water is the element of passion)."

I&#8217;m not saying that Chase is a sap or anything like that, but I believe that there&#8217;s a bit of a subconscious thing going on there where he sees a bit of his old friend in Omi. Yes.
