Melinda is a woman from Mundania. She was introduced in Luck of the Draw as a major character.
Melinda was born in 1092. She is 26 years old.
Melinda died two days short of 20 years old by suicide. She had blond hair, glasses, 5 feet 4 inches 160 pounds. She loved to laugh. She was shy around new people and outspoken amid friends. She loved puns, the worse, the better. She resented anyone judging another, but did not stay angry long, just hurt. She did not like heights and was a bit clumsy, but a genius. She was called Mindy by friends.
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.
