About Lady Aleena


Horseman is a werehorse stallion from Xanth. His talent is short circuit. He was first introduced in Night Mare as a major character.

Horseman is the colt of a woman and a stallion.

Horseman is the evil offspring of a stallion and a woman. He appeared as either a white stallion, called the Day Horse, or a handsome man wearing a brass circlet, called the "short circuit", which hooks its victims directly into the hypnogourd, trapping them there. He aided the NextWave attackers by short circuiting the Kings. He was defeated by Mare Imbrium.

Novels: Night Mare, Question Quest, Jest Right

A Bold Title means he was a major character. A Small Title means he 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.
