About Lady Aleena

Graceʼl Ossein

Graceʼl Ossein is a female skeleton from the Gourd then Xanth. She was first introduced in Heaven Cent as a major character.

Graceʼl Ossein is the wife of Marrow Bones and mother of Joyʼnt Bone and Picka Bone.

Graceʼl Ossein is the source of the Skeleton Key. She was put on trial in the Gourd for messing up the bad dream for Tristan. Truculent was a witness. The jurors at her trial were Ignor Amus, Meto Nymy, Onoma Topeia, Oxy Moron, Pyg Malion, and Synech Doche.

Novels: Heaven Cent, Man from Mundania, Isle of View, The Color of Her Panties, Demons Don't Dream, Roc and a Hard Place, Currant Events, Well-Tempered Clavicle, Luck of the Draw

A Bold Title means she was a major character. A Small Title means she was only mentioned.

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.
