About Lady Aleena


Squid is a female alien from Xanth. She was first introduced in Five Portraits as a major character.

Squid was delivered in 1158. She is the adoptive daughter of Kandy and Ease. She was 6 years old when she was brought to the past from the future from 1164 to 1114. She is 10 years old.

Squid was rescued from the future along with Firenze, Santo, Win, and Myst; who she now considers her siblings. She is a mock octopus. She was a bridesmaid at the wedding of Rhythm and Cyrus. She now serves as crew on Fibot with Grania and Lydell serving in loco parentis while she is there.

She was unable to become the host of Princess Aria because she was not human, but they became friends instead.

She adopted Noe and Ula into her sibling circle.

Novels: Five Portraits, Fire Sail, Jest Right

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.
