About Lady Aleena


Grania is a woman from Xanth. Her talent is making two spots on the wall, like glaring eyes. She was first introduced in Fire Sail as a major character.

Grania was delivered in 1057. She is the widow of an unnamed, wife of Lydell, and mother of Ula. She was 60 years old in 1117 when she swam in Fountain of Youth at the age of 20. She is 21 years old.

Grania has dark brown hair and eyes and is heavyset. Her nickname is Nia. She presided over the wedding of Rhythm and Cyrus. She would have liked to stay with Hawthorne, but for his talent. She is one of the proprietors of Fibot.

She adopted Ula. While they are on Fibot, she serves in loco parentis for Santo, Squid, and Win.

Novels: Fire Sail, Jest Right

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.
