Sorceress Abscissa is a woman from Xanth. Her talent is traveling along the female X coordinate. She was introduced in Roc and a Hard Place.
Abscissa was delivered in 1090. She is the daughter of Ivy and Grey; twin sister of Ordinate; and sister of Melody, Harmony, Rhythm, Green, Dol, Gerrod, Grant, Ilene, Isabella Emily Carylyn, and Revy. She is 27 years old.
Abscissa was delivered to an orphanage since her parents took too long to marry.
Human men and women will not have a species in their entries. Also, if the surname of the character is the character's species, it was dropped.
If the character is a child, it will be in the description. The child will more than likely be an adult by this time in the Xanth series.
Many species are single gender, so their entries will not mention it. The species are Fury, Muse, basilisk, cenmaid, cenmare, cockatrice, dryad, maenad, sand witch, sandman, and woodwife. Harpies and nymphs are usually female, and fauns are usually male; but there have been a few exceptions that are noted.
In some instances, I have made educated guesses on gender, species, and some birth years.
