About Lady Aleena


Hugo is a man from the Good Magicianʼs Castle in Xanth. His talent is conjuring fruit. He was first introduced in Dragon on a Pedestal as a major character.

Hugo was delivered in 1064. He is the son of Gorgon and Humfrey; brother of Dafrey, Matt a Dor, Rosetta, Crombie, and an unnamed sibling; husband of Wira; and father of Liz and Wigo. He was 16 years old when he went into an enchanted sleep in 1080 and began aging again when he woke in 1090. He is 44 years old.

Hugo appeared unimpressive at first intellectually and magically with the talent of conjuring rotten fruit. With the help of Ivyʼs enhancing skills, he came into his own. He met Wira while in the enchanted sleep his father put him in. Bathos exchanged with him. Later, he found out that he had a seed from a mediocri-tree in his ear. When he got rid of it, his mind and all of his fruit was good.

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.
