Eskil is a male crossbreed from Xanth. His talent is changing one's intentions by saying "no". He was first introduced in Vale of the Vole as a major character.
Eskil was delivered in 1064. He is the son of Tandy and Smash; husband of Bria; and father of Briskil, Brusque, Astrid, Benzine, and Epoxy. He is 54 years old.
Eskil has gray eyes and brown hair. In an emergency, he can access his ogre strength or his curse fiend acting ability. He changes a creature's intentions toward him without the creature really understanding why. His nickname is Esk.

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.
