Lydell is a man from Xanth. His talent is changing the color, texture, smell, or taste of things. He was first introduced in Fire Sail as a major character.
Lydell was delivered in 1096. He is the boyfriend of Grania and father of Ula. He is 22 years old.
Lydell is nondescript with light brown hair, brown eyes, a forgettable face, and nothing special physically or mentally. His nickname is "Dell". He was the best man at the wedding of Rhythm and Cyrus. Zephyr, Merrie, Nan OʼTech, Kadence, Froma, Jill, Tess, Ann Noy, Rosie the Riveter, D. Mure, and Anna Sthesia were eleven women who were wrong for him. Only the twelfth woman, Grania, was right for him. He is one of the proprietors of Fibot.
He adopted Ula. While they are on Fibot, he serves in loco parentis for Santo, Squid, and Win.
Novels: Fire Sail, Jest Right
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.
