Firenze is a man from Xanth. His talent is fireworks temper. He was first introduced in Five Portraits as a major character.
Firenze was delivered in 1154. He is the adoptive son of Astrid and Art. He was 10 years old when he was brought to the past from the future from 1164 to 1114. He is 14 years old.
Firenze was rescued from the future along with Santo, Squid, Win, and Myst; who he now considers his siblings. Astrid can stifle him with a look. His name is pronounced fir-EN-zee.
He adopted Noe and Ula into his sibling circle.

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.
