Marrow Bones

Marrow Bones is a male skeleton from the Gourd then Xanth. His talent is reassembling his bones. He was first introduced in Vale of the Vole as a major character.

Marrow Bones is the husband of Graceʼl Ossein and father of Joyʼnt Bone and Picka Bone.

Marrow Bones used to frighten sleepers in bad dreams but got lost on a path in the gourd. He was chosen by Dolph as his Adult Companion on his Quest.

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.
