Black is a woman from the South Village then Caprice Castle in Xanth. Her talent is becoming Merge with her sisters. She was introduced in Board Stiff.
Black is the sister of Blue, Brown, Red, and Yellow and a descendant of an unnamed Magician and an unnamed Sorceress.
Black has waist length black hair and wears an outfit that matches her hair. She is the practical sister of the five.
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.
