The Goddess of Love, Aphrodite is a good friend of Gabrielle and Xena. She is often found popping in every now and then, sometimes with a purpose, other times just to say "Hi!" in her bubbly way. Of late, she is most interested in the possibility of a relationship between Xena and Ares. She is very enthusiastic about them and always loves it when the Warrior Princess and the God of War finally hit it off.
