Maiden Japan is a woman from Mundania then the Gap Chasm in Xanth. She was first introduced in Currant Events.
Maiden Japan was born in 927. She is the mother of Maiden Yukay. She was 26 years old when she boarded the Acquaintance Ship in 953 and began aging again when she escaped in 1105. She is 39 years old.
Maiden Japan was saved by Nan Oʼ Tek, who brought her to Xanth, and founded the Mai-Den Industrial Park in the Gap in 949 with Maiden Mexico, Maiden China, and Maiden Taiwan. Clio met her while she was on the Acquaintance Ship, a fairy boat, on Fanta Sea in 1104 along with the Maidens China and Mexico and Cricket, Randi, and Tran. Sometime after that she escaped, but when is unclear. Her name is a play on Made in Japan.

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.
