Played by Mark Ferguson who was also in HOOVES & HARLOTS (10/110) and REMEMBER NOTHING (26/202) as Krykus and THE XENA SCROLLS (34/210) as John Smythe
From ORPHAN OF WAR:DAGNINEDagnine was once a soldier in Xena's army. Their paths cross again when Xena learns Dagnine is after the Ixion Stone, which will make him into Ixion's evil centaur. The only problem is Dagnine is such a goofball, it's hard to take him seriously. He was probably roomies with Zagreus at Warrior U. [SR]
Everything-- all the strength and discipline of Ixion's creation's right here. With this, I'll sweep the world like a rampaging wind. I'll kill Xena. I'll kill Hercules. I'll take Athens! I've got so much to do. I'll have to make a list.
Sir-- if this doesn't work--
If this doesn't work-- one of you gets my tent, the other gets my horse.
Dagnine is a former lieutenant in Xena's army when she was still with Borias. He is a wild-haired psycho who has returned to Centaur territory to retrieve a potent weapon. It is the Ixion stone, created by the Father of the Centaurs to hold all of the Centaur evil. By drinking the elixir from the stone, he would become that evil Centaur and be strong enough to conquer the world, which is Dagnine's ambition. He has a small army of men, but they cannot yet defeat the Centaurs. He knows that Xena has come to stop him. He discovers that Xena has a son in the Centaur village and promptly kidnaps him. Later, Xena's rescue of her son provides Dagnine with the opportunity to sieze the stone. He turns into the monster Centaur, and he and his army proceed to attack the Centaur village. Xena finally stops him for good by firing a crossbow bolt the size of a telephone pole into his chest. [ND]
Dagon GIANT KILLER (27/203)
Played by Calvin Tuteao [who also played the Doge of Messini in HERE SHE COMES, MISS AMPHIPOLIS]
Leader of the Philistine army. Dagon got Goliath to fight the Isrealites by telling Goliath that he had information about Gareth, the big, bad, and mean giant who killed Goliath's family. [SR]
Dagon is the leader of the Phillistine army that has come to conquer the Israelites and King Saul. He has hired the giant Goliath, a friend of Xena's, to work for him and eliminate the Israelite threat. He invites Xena and Gabrielle to his tent as allies, but later almost executes Gabrielle when she is caught helping David. He thus becomes the enemy of Xena, who sides with the Israelites against Dagon and Goliath. Dagon is eventually defeated by the Israelite army after David kills Goliath. [ND]

Darius CHARIOTS OF WAR (02/102)
Played by Nick Kokotakis
See the article, Darius, WHOOSH #16 (12/97), by Lydia Woods. Darphus THE GAUNTLET (HTLJ) and UNCHAINED HEART (HTLJ). Played by Matthew Chamerlain, who also played Orpheus in GIRLS JUST WANA HAVE FUN (28/204) Bad, bad man. Darphus is the scar-faced psycho who was the Warlord Xena's lieutenant. He gave the order to slaughter a whole village, then got the men to turn on Xena when she saved a baby from the killing. Xena killed Darphus after he made her run the gauntlet and took her army. Ares brought Darphus back from the dead in hopes of killing Hercules. Darphus may have been the first lieutenant that Xena stopped offering bed privileges to. Well, we hope he was. Eeeuw. Daube, Peter Played Spiros in THE GAUNTLET (HTLJ) and Petracles in A FISTFUL OF DINARS (14/114) Selected filmography: The Last Tattoo (1994). TV Appearances: Hercules: The Legendary Journeys (1995)
Although Peter Daube has appeared in several Hercules and Xena episodes as different characters and sometimes extras, there is little information - actually none that I could find - on him. He is a talented actor and has portrayed a variety of characters between the two shows. He was in one of the Xena introductory eps on Herk, as well as playing other parts, too. He is a good actor, and apparently fairly well known in NZ. [RG]
David GIANT KILLER (27/203)
Played by Anthony Starr [who also played Mesas in HOOVES AND HARLOTS]
Wimpy dude who killed Goliath. For some inexplicable reason, Gabrielle found David quite interesting (she's the only one). After Jonathan was killed, David assumed his place as the new leader of the Israelites. [SR]
David is the younger son of King Saul of the Israelites, and has been captured and imprisoned by the Phillistines along with his brother Jonathan. Gabrielle attempts to free him but is herself almost executed by the Phillistine leader, Dagon, until they are all saved by Xena. Back in Saul's castle, Xena, David, and Jonathan plot to defeat Dagon and have Xena kill Goliath by attacking the soft spot on his forehead. The plan fails when Goliath shows up wearing a helmet and noseguard. In the battle that follows, Jonathan, Saul's heir, is killed by Goliath as the Israelites are forced to retreat. With their future king dead, David must become the one to slay the giant himself, to assume leadership of his people. He succeeds, with the help of Xena, the Israelite army, and the One God. [ND]

Dior, Karen (aka Geoff Gann) Played Miss Artiphys in HERE SHE COMES...MISS AMPHIPOLIS (35/211) Adult film star/director Docenius ATHENS CITY ACADEMY OF PERFORMING BARDS (13/113)
Played by Alan De Malmarche
Doge of Messini HERE SHE COMES...MISS AMPHIPOLIS (35/22). Played by Calvin Tuteao [who also played Dagon in GIANT KILLER] One of the sponsors of the Miss Known World Beauty Pagent. He entered his girlfriend, and after talking with Gabrielle (the Marquessa), decided to let Miss Messini decide for herself what she wanted to do (which was quit the pageant). [SR]
One of a group of warlords brought together by Salmoneus in an effort to bring peace to an area torn by war. The Doge has his girlfriend, Miss Messini, entered in the Miss Known World beauty pageant. She is the first of the contestants to survive an assassination attempt by Lord Claron, the host of the competition, who wants to bring war back to the land, for profit.

Dolas DREAMWORKER (03/103)
Played by Patrick Smith
Dolas and his brother Linius were the first of Xena's victims. Dolas came to Xena in her dreamscape to haunt her Draco SINS OF THE PAST (01/101) and COMEDY OF EROS (46/222). Played by Jay Laga'aia Draco is the baddest, slickest warlord of all. He has a real sense of style in an utterly ruthless sort of way. He and Xena go way back, and were once on intimate terms-Draco has the scar to prove it! In SINS OF THE PAST (01/101), he discouraged Xena from going straight, telling her that he had tried it once and nearly been killed by his father when he tried to return home. Although he is oh-so-baaaad, he has a sense of honor, as he showed when he killed his top lieutenant for trying to stab Xena after a truce had been declared. Xena fell in love with him against her will in A COMEDY OF EROS (46/222), and Draco fell for Gabrielle. Xena persuaded Cupid to leave the spell on Draco, who now roams the countryside doing good (by his standards, at least) to prove himself worthy of the Bardster. [CC]
Duncan, Ross Played Parnassus in THE BLACK WOLF (11/111) Dwyer, Michael Played Theodorus in THE WARRIOR PRINCESS (HTLJ) The only thing I know about this guy is that he looks like an old friend of Heparin's.
