About Lady Aleena


Sofia is a woman from Mundania then the Good Magicianʼs Castle in Xanth. Her talent is sorting socks. She was first introduced in Question Quest.

Sofia is the wife of Humfrey and mother of Crombie.

Sofia was chosen for her domestic acumen from Mundania by Humfrey. She is the author of a play on Ptero. She is sometimes called Sofia Socksorter.

Novels: Question Quest, The Color of Her Panties, Harpy Thyme, Yon Ill Wind, Faun and Games, Swell Foop, Cube Route, Currant Events, Two to the Fifth, Board Stiff, Isis Orb, Ghost Writer in the Sky

A Bold Title means she was a major character. A Small Title means she was only mentioned.

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.
