Note: Book numbers shown with a capital M (M23) indicate a major character in that book. Book numbers shown with a small m (m23) indicate just a mention of that character. Characters are considered included in a book if they are mentioned or are in the current area.
The Database does not allow duplicates between Character and Species. Since the author does occasionally repeat Characters within a species, all duplicates will have something in brackets[] after the Character Name; an abbreviated book title. Example: The first Astrid/Crossbreed will be Astrid [FAG] for the Astrid in Fawn And Games, where she appears, and the second Astrid/Crossbreed will be Astrid [BS] for the Astrid in Board Stiff, the first book in which she appears. If the Character duplicate is in the same book, it will get a 1, 2, etc. and the book abbveviation. Example: Well-Tempered Clavicle has 2 Aaron/Human. They will be Aaron 1 [WTC] and Aaron 2 [WTC].

Doug Harter maintains the Xanth Character Database, updating it as new books in the Xanth series are released. Thanks to Piers Anthony, for letting me see some of his Character Notes, to Peg Rombach-Riggs who did the work creating the original table, Seajay who supplied the numbers, Dawn M. Burge for suggesting and helping Origin to be accomplished, and FNProgramvare's BookCat, which I use to store the Xanth Character info.
NOTE: No books will be included which are not released.
