When she was reformed and became Eve, she was filled with guilt. Now she travels with Xena and Gabrielle, determined to follow in her mother's footsteps as she tries to figure out exactly where she belongs in this world, struggling between the absolute peaceful nature of Eli's message and the warrior part of her being. Having been given Gabrielle's Rite of Caste, the Amazons, too, have become a constant presense and struggle in her life.
