About Lady Aleena

Com Pewter

Com Pewter is a male machine from Xanth. His talent is changing his local reality. He was first introduced in Golem in the Gears.

Com Pewter is the husband of Com Passion and father of Com Panion, Com Ponent, and Com Pound.

Com Pewter was built for the Muses of Parnassus by Maiden Japan to assist them by recording reality. However, he was misdesigned so that he remakes reality within the confines of his cave. He was once considered an evil machine. In one instance, he made a deal with Murphy and Vadne that he would help them escape to Mundania in exchange for the service of their first born son, Grey. He sent Sending to Mundania so that Ivy could bring Grey into Xanth. Tristan is his mouse who he forced to marry Tacy. Lacuna reprogrammed him to be a nice machine and freed Grey.

When it wants to travel Xanth, it takes the form of Pewter, an android, with faces made on his head screen and a mechanical voice.

Character notes


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.
