Xena, the warrior princess is bent on overcoming her dark and hateful past. She must save innocents to redeem herself, in the eyes of the world and to herself. She is aided along the way by best friend Gabrielle, a struggling bard who later turns warrior herself.
Xena and Solan are reunited ten years later, only Solan doesn't know that Xena is his mother and thinks that she killed his father. When it is revealed that Dagnine killed Borias, he and Xena reconcile, but she cannot bring herself to tell him the truth.
When they meet again, a year or so later, he is killed by Hope (Who was instructed to do so by Callisto), which caused a Rift in Xena's and Gabrielle's relationship. To make up for this, he took them to Illusia, a land that was created specifically to bring Xena and Gabrielle back together - and it worked.
When they discover that the Gods want to kill Xena's unborn child, Xena and Gabrielle travel to the Underworld to recover the Helmet of Invisibility. Whilst there, they discover a caccooned Solan, doomed to watch the life that he left behind. He says that this is because he doesn't want to miss his mother in the Elysian Fields. Once Gabrielle steals the Helmet, They use it to sneak Solan into the Elysian Fields, where he will stay for eternity.
|Season 3 / Episode 11: - Maternal Instincts|
Solan: [crying about Kaleipus' death] Like my father... [pause]... and my mom. [Xena glances at him] But why does everyone I love die? [pause] Is it me?
Xena: [quietly] No, no! Of course not...
Solan: Then why are they dead? Everyone who ever loved me?
Xena: They're not! You still have me- [Xena stops herself as Solan looks at her]... many, many friends. And they've all said how much they love you and want you to come and live with them...
Solan: But I don't want to. [pause] I want to live with you.
Xena: [whispers] What?
Solan: I won't be any trouble, I promise. I'll catch my own food and keep up. And I'm hardly ever sick...
Xena: Solan, I don't think...
Solan: Please! My uncle always said if anything happened to him, you'd be there for me.
Xena: And he was right. But all your ties are here. Don't you wanna be with someone that you know, someone that you care about?
Solan: Yes, you! [pause] You said we were friends and real friends are like family, right?
Xena: [smiles happily] Like family!
Solan: Then take me with you, please? [pause] Don't leave me!
Xena: [starts crying] When all this is over, you be packed and ready to go. We've got a lot to talk about. We might as well do it on the road... [she leaves Kaleipus' hut]
