Princess Rhythm

Princess Rhythm of Human Xanth is a woman from Castle Roogna in Xanth. Her talent is singing or playing something real. She was first mentioned in Yon Ill Wind.

Rhythm was delivered in 1096. She is the daughter of Ivy and Grey; triplet sister of Melody and Harmony; sister of Abscissa, Ordinate, Green, Dol, Gerrod, Grant, Ilene, Isabella Emily Carylyn, and Revy; wife of Cyrus; and mother of Kadence. She is 22 years old.

Rhythm has red hair and green eyes and wears a red dress. She, along with her sisters Melody and Harmony, switched with her adult self and created Castle Maidragon to contain the Dastard. She and her triplet sisters also created Fibot. She traveled to Phaze with Cube.

She was called Rhyme while she traveled with Cyrus's troupe. She became the mother of Kadence by Cyrus when she was 12 aged to 22. Obvious was assigned to her while she was in Castle Rock Candy. She is betrothed to Cyrus when she gets old enough. She was affected by "The Princess and the Pee" written by Goar.

She married Cyrus in a private ceremony on Fibot. The wedding was attended by her sisters and cousins, Dawn and Eve. Grania presided, Merrie was the maid of honor, Squid was a bridesmaid, Win was the flower girl, Lydell was the best man, Santo was the ring bearer, and Peeve and Tata were witnesses.

She will be deleted by Ragna Roc in 1128 then undeleted when Ragna was defeated.

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.
