Xanth Family Tree
Here is a list of most of the characters from Xanth, the magical 
world of Piers Anthony. The characters belong to him, but the list 
is mine. If you wish to connect to it, be my guest, but ask first. 
I covered most of the families, minus a few like Donald the Shade.

Legend "*" unknown number of generations; or distant relative
            Magician/Sorceress
       "#"  Multiple Marriages
       Roman Numeral: the generation the Xanthian belongs to in 
          reference to Bink's generation
       "=" Crosses over a line
