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.
Alexandra Tydings Luzzatto is an American actress, best known for her role as the Greek goddess Aphrodite ...
Aphrodite, Goddess of Love is first portrayed as being spiteful and selfish. She was very immature at times, as shown with her fueds with Discord and her son, Cupid.
But as her character is deepened, we learn that she can have a soft spot for people and care for others. For example, her clear respect and love for her brother, Ares and her friendship with Gabrielle. She even stood up against Athena to protect Gabrielle, during the Twilight of the Gods. Though she seemed to honestly fear Eve and the Twilight.
When it comes to Hercules, she treats him as the typical protective older brother figure, unlike some of the other Olympians, even calling him "Big Bro".
Her and Ares' connection deepens in Season 6 of Xena, when Aphrodite literally goes insane, when Ares looses his godhood as War and Love balance eachother out. The then Roman emperor, Caligula uses this to his advantage by sucking the godhood and sanity out of her, literally. After the defeat of Caligula, Aphrodite becomes mortal just like her brother though Xena soons helps them regain godhood.
