Yup. Jehana has a child with Barrett. I looked it up in the Codex.

The Codex said that Jehana and Barrett will have a daughter together.  With a former Queen of Gwynedd for a mother and a Camberian Councillor as a father, that little girl will most likely be a powerful Deryni mage (or whatever the female equivalent for mage is) when she grows up.

I think the word you are looking for is 'sorceress' or 'enchantress'; or, if she goes bad, 'witch.'

Or what the Codex would call Charissa and other Deryni who use their powers for evil--"Spawn of the Devil".

Sorceress/Enchantress should be used for female Deryni who use their powers for good.

I wasnt looking for a word, I was just having fun with the English  language.

besides "sorceress" is the exact female form of "sorcerer" and Mage implies more scientist than magician, deriving I believe from Magi, who were astrologists when that was respectable.

Well, if you consider that Deryni magic is the "respectable" sort (even if some folk like Loris think otherwise), and in a way the arcane workings could be looked at as a sort of science/art, maybe a feminine version of "magus" would be in order?  Though I'm not the Latin scholar around here, so someone else would need to weigh in on what that might be.

In Latin it would be 'Maga.'

Not being a Latin scholar, we could turn Christendom on its head by having Magae instead of Magi.  Wouldn't that just make Lorus', et al, head spin?

Masculine plural is used for a mixed group, so it isn't impossible that there was at least one woman among the Magi.  We don't know how many, just that there were at least three (ancient Greek had both a dual and plural; modern Greek, I understand, uses the dual only for things that come in pairs [shoes, gloves, eyes, kidneys, etc.]), and three gifts are mentioned.
