My name is Xena. Some call me the Warrior Princess. Some call me murderer.
Many years ago, there was a village called Cirra. It was a village just like yours — small and prosperous, full of life — until the day that my army came. Until the day that I came — destroyed it. Under my orders, my men, they sacked the village, burned the houses, and killed every living thing. Everything was destroyed — including the soul of one young, innocent girl, who will never be able to reclaim her childhood, and will never know what the Fates had planned for her if not for me.
