Xena debuted as an antogonistic character in the TV Show Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. She went on to become the titular heroine of the Xena: Warrior Princess TV Show. Formerly an evil warlord, Xena now uses her fighting prowess for good and to atone for her past misdeeds as the Destroyer of Nations.


Xena grew up in the village of Amphipolis in ancient Greece. Her family consists of her mother, Cyrene, her younger brother, Lyceus and her older brother Toris. Their village was attacked and destroyed by the warlord Cortese. Lyceus died defending it. These events started Xena on a dark path as a warrior that saw her become a merciless warlord known as the Destroyer of Nations. She partnered with Borias in conquering the lands. They were also lovers but Xena eschewed any notion of them being in love, stating that people like them don't fall in love with each other. She was a brutal warrior at first but would later realise that helping those in need and atoning for her past sins was the path she ultimately wanted to follow. Hercules helped her start that path and Gabrielle helped make sure she stayed on it.
