Character Bio

Ares photo
Ares the God of War, is a main character on Xena: Warrior Princess and Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. He is usually an antagonist on Hercules, and a mixture of both protagonist and antagonist on Xena.

He took Xena under his wing as his protege, sometime after she first met with Caesar. He also gave her the Chakram, sometime after she left Chin and headed towards the Norselands. He continues to follow her throughout the series, tempting her back to her old ways, but eventually fives up and turns into more of a hinderance than an enemy. This is because he falls in love with her.

He also takes quite a shine to Gabrielle, trying to seduce her away from her travels with Xena and tempt her to become his protege. The two become good friends, after he ressurects her in "Motherhood".

Ares' relationship with Hercules is fuelled by jealously. This is because Zeus has always favoured him over the other Gods. He is almost all the time trying to kill or harm him, physically or mentally.

Ares was played by Kevin Smith.
