Arte Menia is a man from Xanth. His talent is persuasion of sincerity. He was introduced in Geis of the Gargoyle.
Arte Menia was the Master Slaver Iris remembered. The demons Rum and Magpie, the Knight Guard, and Katka were working for him. The demons chose to serve Iris instead. Iris brought him to justice.
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.
