Hi, my name is... Caesar, JuliusDESTINY (36/212). Played byKarl Urban [who also appears in ALTARED STATES (19/119) as Mael, and FOR HIM THE BELLS TOLL (40/216) and COMEDY OF EROS (46/222) as Cupid]
Caesar first met up with Xena as her hostage. He showed great poise and immediately went about making Xena fall in love with him (Note: Caesar is the only man -- excepting Ares -- who has ever been able to manipulate Xena so completely). He was ransomed back to the Romans for 100,000 dinars by Xena, after Xena had fallen head over heels for him. He showed up again after a passage of time, coming in the guise of seeing Xena again. Once on the ship he took all of the members of her crew captive and crucified all of them -- including Xena. Caesar is a dashingly handsome and charming man, who is later proved to be totally ruthless. It was Caesar's men (when they killed M'Lila) who turned Xena into the bloodthirsty demon she was. [JG]

Played by Jason Kennedy
Hi, my name is... CastorCRADLE OF HOPE (04/104)
Played by Latham Gaines
Hi, my name is... CecropsTHE LOST MARINER (45/221)
Played by Tony Todd
Do you know the story of how Athena became goddess of Athens?
Yeah. Poseidon and Athena both wanted Athens. So a contest was held. The first citizen was chosen to arbitrate.
He wasn't the first citizen. A minor point-- but go ahead.
Poseidon brought forth a spring on the Acropolis-- and Athena made a beautiful olive tree sprout on the rocky soil. So, the Arbiter chose in favor of Athena. That's all I know.
That's all anybody ever knows. Nobody remembers that Poseidon was very angry-- or that the Arbiter was just reflecting the will of the people. Nobody remembers that Poseidon placed a curse on the Arbiter-- or that the Arbiter's name was-- Cecrops.
The Lost Mariner, Cecrops was cursed by Poseidon never be able to set foot on land again until love redeemed him. Athena granted Cecrops immortality in the hopes that he would find a way to defeat the curse. For over 300 years Cecrops had been sailing the ocean, until his ship picked up Gabrielle, which ensured that Xena was not far behind.
Hi, my name is... CelanoHOOVES & HARLOTS (10/110)
Played by Chris Bailey, who also appeared as Agis in WARRIOR, PRINCESS, TRAMP (30/206), and Apex in BLIND FAITH (42/218)
The killer of Princess Terrais of the Amazons. Celano was living in the centaur village, but working for the Warlord Krykus. He set up Phantes as the killer in hopes that it would start a war between the Amazons and the Centaurs. It was his freaky knife which clued off Xena big time. [SR]
Celano is a hired spy for the warlord Krykus. He has infiltrated the Centaur village and become the trusted ally of Tyldus. He is not a very good fighter and somewhat cowardly, so his function in the Centaur village is as a supporter and advisor to Tyldus. His treachery is discovered by Xena who notices that he has a jeweled dagger exactly like that of Krykus. He gallops back to Krykus' camp to warn him that his plans to conquer both the Amazons and Centaurs have been foiled. The Amazons, Centaurs, and Xena, follow him to Krykus' camp where they wipe out Krykus' army. Celano, trying to escape, is hunted down by Xena and killed. [ND]
Hi, my name is... Chamberlain, MatthewPlayed Darphus in THE GAUNTLET (HTLJ) and UNCHAINED HEART and played Orpheus in GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN (28/204)
Selected filmography: The Frighteners (1996)
Hi, my name is... CharonMORTAL BELOVED (16/116)
Played by Michael Hurst, who also plays Iolas in THE WARRIOR PRINCESS (HTLJ), UNCHAINED HEART (HTLJ), PROMETHEUS (08/108) and THE QUEST (39/213)
Charon has been seen in several episodes of both Xena and Hercules, most notably in MORTAL BELOVED (16/116), when Xena travels to the underworld at the summons of her beloved Marcus. She is to help him right the twisted circumstances in Tartarus. Charon navigates a boat that takes one to the gates of the underworld, he's constantly looking for dinars, and he's quite a hilarious 'tour guide' when given the chance. He sarcastically points out that amid the chaos, they were already getting tourists - living tourists. He proudly points out the 'sites' as he rows you to your eternal resting place. What is so amusing and intriguing about this character is that under all the Freddy Krueger make-up is our beloved Iolaus, Michael Hurst. He gives the part the necessary dry wit that allows us to poke fun at the fact that even death can be complicated and no one is guaranteed to Rest In Peace!!! [RG]
Hi, my name is... Claron, LordHERE SHE COMES...MISS AMPHIPOLIS (35/211)
Played by Jon Sumner
Lord Claron proposed the First Miss Known World Beauty pagent as a way of celebrating a year of peace between Messini, Skyros, and Parnassus. Claron's land had always been neutral and prospered from supplying the warring factions. Claron wanted to sabatage the pagent in hopes of getting the others fighting again.

Hi, my name is... CorteseDEATH MASK (23/123). Played by Michael Lawrence
Cortese is the warlord who started it all by attacking Xena's home village of Amphipolis. Xena and her brother Lyceus organized a defensive force that drove Cortese back, but Lyceus and many of the village men were killed in the process. What Cortese did in the ensuing decade is unknown, though at some point he became a minor king. Xena's older brother Toris, bent on revenge, infiltrated Cortese's army. Xena captured Cortese and exposes the "king" as the warlord he truly was. Toris wanted to kill him, but could not bring himself to do so. Cortese's fate is not spelled out; he was probably put in the custody of the village he'd once ruled. [CC]

Played by Barry Te Hira
Draco's right hand man. Craigan keeps trying to warn his boss that Xena is up to something.
Hi, my name is... CreonTHE TITANS (07/107)
Played by Jack Dacey
A business partner of Hesiot who foolishly thinks he can take care of a warrior princess for Hesiot. He doesn't. He gets a great line to Gabrielle, when she arrives to help Xena with mob control. He asks, "You gonna smite us, little girl?" And Gabrielle retorts, "No, he is," pointing to Crius, the Titan
Hi, my name is... CriusTHE TITANS (07/107)
Played by Edward Campbell
One of the Titans freed by Gabrielle. He was killed by Hyperion, 'cause he was nice and Hyperion wasn't. The older one of the two males, he was the most level-headed and conservative of the three Titans. There was some intimation of male rivalry between him and the whippersnapper Hyperion. [SR]
Of the three Titans awakened from their stone prison by Gabrielle, Crius, the elder, liked humans and endeavored to show his gratitude to Gabrielle. His compassion was later the cause of his death as he fights his evil Titan brother Hyperion, who had captured a group of children, with the intent to kill them after he had lured Xena to come to their rescue. The fight allows Xena to get the children to safety, and leads to the eventual defeat of Hyperion (and Thea) by Xena and Gabrielle. [ND]
Hi, my name is... CupidFOR HIM THE BELL TOLLS (40/216) and COMEDY OF EROS (46/222)
Played by Karl Urban [who also appears in ALTARED STATES (19/119) as Maell and DESTINY (36/212) as Julius Caesar]
In traditional mythology, Cupid is the son of Aphrodite and (depending on what you're reading) either Ares, Hermes, or Heaphestus. Cupid is the god of love, but he is not one of the twelve Great Olympians. When hit with one of Cupid's arrows, one immediately falls completely in love with the first person they see. With his bow and arrows, he often aided his mother, Aphrodite, goddess of love and beauty, in ancient matchmaking. On XWP (and HTLJ), Cupid is portrayed as a romantic, old-fashioned kind of guy - complete with bleached blond hair, sexy 'five o'clock shadow', buff physique, black leather skirt with leggings, AND those infamous wings. He is married to Psyche, and their son, Bliss, caused some vastly amusing mishaps in Comedy of Eros. Cupid has appeared in these Xena episodes: FOR HIM THE BELL TOLLS and COMEDY OF EROS. He was also in the Hercules episode THE GREEN-EYED MONSTER. [RG]
Hi, my name is... Curry, JustinPlayed G'Kug in THE PRICE (44/220)
Hi, my name is... CycnusCHARIOTS OF WAR (02/102)
Played by Jeff Thomas
Warlord who is the father of Sphaerus. Cycnus claims that Xena killed his other son Stentor at the battle of Corinth. But Xena told him that Stentor had tried to make peace and was killed by his own men. Xena ends up killing Cycnus to save Sphaerus' life. Sphaerus then experiences even more psychological grief over his near patricide. So much so, he can't even get it on with Gabrielle at the end of the show.
