Xena is the legendary Warrior Princess. Once a ruthless warlord trying to conquer the world, she was able to turn from that path and she now travels around the known world, fighting for the Greater Good and atoning for her past crimes. Accompanying her on her journeys is Gabrielle, her best friend, and the woman who was able to help Xena stay on her path of good. She often crosses paths with Ares and is always having to deal with her developing feelings for him.
