Tara is a woman from Mundania. She was introduced in Ghost Writer in the Sky as a major character.
Tara is the girlfriend of Tartan.
Tara has brown hair and brown eyes, so ordinary. She was hosted by DeMonica while a ghost in Xanth. She played the Carecrow in "The Lizard of Waz". Her name means "tower".
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.
