Xena is an incredibly skillful fighter and martial artist using advanced Eastern arts resembling modern karate, judo and ninjitsu with extra-ordinary gymnastic ability to increase the ferocity of her regular combat skills. She can jump straight up almost ten feet. She has incredible acrobatic and balance ability and can bounce off walls and use all her body’s natural pinot points to incredible advantage. Her fighting skill is nearly superhuman, enough to take down Ares or even Hercules.She is knowledgeable about pressure points, precision areas in the body for stopping nerve control and blood flow, allowing her to kill or paralyze with a fingertip, depending on the pressure she uses. She is a ruthless swordswoman and fighter, capable of turning any object into a weapon, including a wooden marionette or a dead fish. Her most renowned weapon is her chakram which she can utilize to its greatest efficiency.... Xena also uses a circular bladed weapon known as a chakram, which she can throw which such force and velocity that it ricochets off objects, slicing throats or stunning opponents then rebounding back to be caught by her hand. Her proficiency borders on nearly mystical. She can control and manipulate its trajectory to strike even an unseen target or keep it in flight nearly indefinitely, ricocheting off several surfaces until she plucks it from her flight.
Xena is a fictional character from Robert Tapert's Xena: Warrior Princess franchise. She commonly wore a tight brown, skirted, leather outfit. She first appeared in the 1995–1999 television series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, before going on to appear in Xena: Warrior Princess TV show and subsequent comic book of the same name. The character has also appeared in the spin-off animated movie The Battle for Mount Olympus, as well as numerous non-canon expanded universe material, such as books and video games. Xena was played by New Zealand actress Lucy Lawless.
Xena is the protagonist of the story, and the series depicts her quest to seek redemption for her past sins as a ruthless warlord by using her formidable fighting skills to help people. Xena was raised as the daughter of Cyrene and Atrius, though the episode The Furies raised the possibility that Ares, might be Xena's biological father. In Hercules, during her two first episodes, Xena was an outlaw, but in the third (and last), she joins Hercules to defeat Darphus, who had taken her army. Aware that the character of Xena had been very successful among the public, the producers of the series decided to create a spin-off series based on her adventures. The character Gabrielle, introduced in the first episode, becomes Xena's greatest ally; her initial naïveté helps to balance Xena and assists her in recognizing and pursuing the "greater good".
