About Lady Aleena

Sorceress Iris

Sorceress Iris is a woman from the Isle of Illusion then Castle Roogna in Xanth. Her talent is creating illusions so real they fool all the physical senses. She was first introduced in A Spell for Chameleon.

Iris was delivered in 1001. She is the wife of Trent and mother of Irene, Trenris, Ilene, Irenti, and Trentia. She was 93 years old in 1094 when she took youth elixir and became 23. She is 47 years old.

Iris was trained by Humfrey in 1007. When she was younger, she took a mission to stop the Master Slaver. During the mission she met the demons Rum and Magpie, the Knight Guard, and Katka who were working for him. The demons decided to work for her instead. The Master Slaver turned out to be Arte Menia. She served as King pro tem during the NextWave invasion. In the year 1094 at the age of 93, she took youth elixir and became 23.

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.
