Orphan of War

Xena: Warrior PrincessAfter learning that one of her former soldiers, Dagnine, is searching for the Exion Stone, Xena and Gabrielle head for Centaur territory. They are met by Kalipus, who led the Centaurs against Xena when she herself hunted for the stone. Living with the Centaurs is Xena’s 10 year old son, Solon. She had given him up to Kalipus to protect him from her enemies and herself after his father died. She also told Kalipus that she was giving up her search for the Exion stone. Dagnine has people watching the Centaur village. He is thrilled to learn that Xena has a son. He has the boy kidnapped in order to keep Xena from stopping him in his search. But Xena travels to Dagnine’s camp to free Solon. The warlord has placed the boy in a cage. Xena uses her whip to pull the cage up to the platform she is on. As Xena is pulling him up, she is spotted by the warriors in the camp. She drops the key which she took from Dagnine to Solon, and ties the whip to the platform. While she is fighting the warriors, the whip loosens from the platform sending the cage and Solon to the ground. A large hole opens in the ground upon impact from the cage and boy. He calls for help from Xena, who reaches him in time to keep him from falling into the darkness. She grabs her whip from the ground nearby and snaps the end up to a tree branch over the hole. She pulls Solon up to her and the two dangle above the abyss as archers take aim.

She is startled when his helmet falls away when he hits the ground, reavling a young man about 16 years old. Xena reenters the temple and is met by the three Fates. The trio of goddesses wish to reward her for saving their temple. The only thing Xena wants is for the boy to have his life back. She wishes that she had never taken up the sword. The goddesses agree to this and tell her all is restored until the first time she draws blood in anger. Slightly confused, Xena again leaves the temple looking for Gabrielle. But her friend is nowhere to be found. As Xena looks around outside the temple, the area changes. She suddenly finds herself in a clearing and she he can hear Lyceus calling for her.

The Xena Scrolls

Xena: Warrior PrincessIn 1940’s Macedonia, Dr. Janice Covington, an archeologist, is looking for the Xena Scrolls. After finding a telegram that Dr. Covington sent to her father, Melinda Pappas arrives at her dig to help with the translation of the scrolls. A rival archeologist, Dr. John Smythe, sends some men to their camp to take anything that Janice and her crew have found. But she runs them off before they get the chance. A Lieutenant Jacques from French Intelligence is also snooping around. He tells Covington that he was sent to help her. Smythe appears at the camp with a tablet that could be the key to opening up the tomb that Janice has uncovered. He forces Janice to open it at gunpoint. As they enter the tomb, the stairwell colapses. Janice, Mel, and Jacques are seperated from Smythe and his men. Mel translates the writing that is on the walls as saying that they are in the tomb of Ares. The trio soon discover the hidden scrolls, and with them is half of Xena’s chakram. Janice tries to remove it from the stone that it is imbedded in but is unsuccessful. Mel, however, easily extracts the broken weapon. Once it’s in her hand, it seems to pull Mel toward something.
