About Lady Aleena

Princess Rose

Princess Rose is a woman from Castle Roogna then the Good Magicianʼs Castle in Xanth. Her talent is growing roses. She was first introduced in Question Quest.

Rose was delivered in 705. She is the daughter of Ashley Rose and Bliss, wife of Humfrey, and mother of Rosetta. She was 20 years old when she went to Castle Roogna with a spell to keep her young in 725 and began aging again when she left with Humfrey in 972. She was 48 years old when she kidnapped to Hell in 1000 and began aging again when she rescued by Humfrey in 1090. She is 76 years old.

Rose escaped Muerte A. Fid by hiding at Castle Roogna. Canis Major was her pet dog. She married Humfrey after waiting more than two centuries for him. She was kidnapped to Hell and waited there for 90 years until Humfrey found a way to free her. Her full name is Rose Pax of Bliss.

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.
