Nya is a female crossbreed from Xanth. She was introduced in Isis Orb as a major character.
Nya is the daughter of a naga and a dragon and girlfriend of Quin.
Nya is a dragon/naga crossbreed with wings who wants to find her purpose. Her naga form has a human head, torso, and arms. She breathes fire. Rocky attacked her for no apparent reason, but it was found later that it was over a misunderstood word. She plays the harmonica. She got the Totem of the Region of Fire, who is Fiery Faun. She found her purpose to be acting as an an envoy between dragons, naga, and humans.
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.
