Xena started out as a very evil warrior. She was first introduced in the Hercules episode "The Warrior Princess" and it was only Hercules that could turn her away from her dark side. After meeting Hercules and deciding to fight for good, she met Gabrielle. A determined bard that was pure goodness and innocence. Through the years Gabrielle has helped Xena through tough times like her father's death, and managed to guide her when Xena turned back to her evil ways.
