King Trent

King Trent of Human Xanth is a man from the North Village in Xanth, France in Mundania, Castle Roogna, then the Isle of Illusion in Xanth. His talent is transforming others into any other living form. He was first introduced in A Spell for Chameleon as a major character.

Trent was delivered in 997. He is the widower of an unnamed Mundane; husband of Iris; and father of an unnamed son, Irene, Trenris, Ilene, Irenti, and Trentia. He was 96 years old in 1093 when he took youth elixir and became 26. He is 51 years old.

Trent was the nineteenth King of Human Xanth, sometimes called the Transformer King. He was trained by Humfrey in 1005. He was once an Evil Magician exiled to Mundania for attempting to usurp the throne. He spent twenty years there and married a farmer's daughter and had a son. After they both died, he began planning his return to Xanth. In 1093 at the age of 96, he took youth elixir and became 26.

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.
