Xena does not kill him after all, even though the Athenians wants him killed. Later, G'Kug is instrumental in Gabrielle learning the Horde word for water, "kaltaka".

The stuffy, conservative physician who looks down upon Xena's holistic and natural medicinal solutions. He runs a temple/MASH unit in the middle of a warzone. He becomes greatly disillusioned and retreats to superstition. Xena tries to slap him out of it and demonstrates her pratical approach to the medicinal arts. She convinces his students that the study of medicine has nothing to do with the gods, but everything to do with being human.
Hi, my name is... GalipanTHE PRICE (44/220)
Played by Mark Perry [who also played Vicerius in DESTINY]
Galipan was the General of the Athenian army. His regiment was attacked by the Horde. When some of his men tried to break through to get reinforcements, they were ambushed and hung on crosses along the riverbank. Galipan, though mortally wounded, was able to jump in the river to escape, and was rescued by Gabrielle and Xena in a canoe, themselves trying to escape the Horde. Hanging off the side of the boat, he was brought to shore when another group of Athenian soldiers were able to hold back the Horde. He was carried into the Athenian fortress, where he died, after telling his lieutenant Mercer that "They have to be stopped." His body is later propped up on the fortress wall as a decoy. [ND]
Hi, my name is... GarSINS OF THE PAST (01/101)
Played by David Perrett. Member of Draco's Army
Gar, a big hulk of a man, is a loyal minion of Draco. He aids Draco in the four archer's demonstration of their abilities. It is apparent that Gar is either equal to or higher up than Hector in the army's hierarchy. Unfortunately, after Draco loses his fight with Xena over the fate of Amphipolis, Gar tries to stab Xena in the back. Draco kills him with nary a thought, saying, "A deal's a deal," refering to his and Xena's agreement that the fight was to be between only the two of them.
Hi, my name is... GarelTHE PRICE (44/220)
Played by Tamati Rice
An Athenian soldier trying to defend the fort from the Horde. Garel marvels with Gabrielle over the Horde's ability to throw axes over 200 yards. He also tells Gabrielle his conjecture that the Horde word "kaltaka" is probably their god of war. Garel is also the first soldier that Xena dresses down for lack of disclipline. She tells him that he has more to fear from her than any Horde member. Garel also gets the great pleasure of informing Gabrielle that Xena wants to use wounded soldiers in battle. Let's just say, Gabrielle does not take well to that suggestion.

Played by Jim Mgaata
Minya: "[Gareth is]-- the biggest, meanest giant ever to walk the Earth. Xena's old buddy, Goliath, wanted to get revenge on Gareth for killing his family. But then, Xena and Goliath ended up on opposite sides during the Israelite-Philistine feud. And then Goliath got wasted."

Gareth, another giant, killed his family when he was off doing a favor for Xena. Since then, Xena's been feeling the guilt and Goliath has been plotting revenge against Gareth. The Philistines told Goliath that if he helped them subdue the Israelites, then they would tell him where Gareth was. Goliath wanted Gareth so bad that he continued fighting against the Israelites, ignoring Xena's pleas. David finally killed Goliath by tricking him to take off his helmet and hitting him in a sensitive area -- a plan concocted by Xena. Xena finally avenges Goliath and his family by electrocuting Gareth in A DAY IN THE LIFE (39/215).
