Hooraw is a bird from Xanth. It was introduced in Castle Roogna.
Hooraw is a very large bird with bright but tasteless plumage with patches of red, blue and yellow on the wings, a brown tail speckled with white, and its body is streaked in shades of green. The head was black with a white patch about one eye and two purple feathers near the gray beak. It is named after its cry. It collects things.
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.
