Q
Xena is not a princess. Why is she called Xena Warrior Princess?
A
The title was initially given to her by Lao Ma. It's basically in recognition of her warrior skills and potential for greatness that Lao Ma saw in her. After Xena left Chin, the title stuck with her. It's comparable to Autolycus, whom is called the King of Thieves. He's not a really king, but is so good at it that he is commonly referred to as such.
Q
Who trapped Ares in the tomb we see in 'The Xena Scrolls'?
A
-We're told that only a descendent of Xena can free him from the tomb so this suggests that he was also sealed in it by one of her descendents, most likely her daugher Eve. However, the magical object keeping him trapped is the 'Eye of Hephestus' which we've previously glimpsed on Olympus, Hephestus being Aphrodite's late husband and suggesting that perhaps she also had a hand in Ares' incarceration. In 'Deja Vu all over again' Ares remarks that 'you trapped me in the tomb' to the reincarnations of Xena, Joxer and Gabrielle suggesting it was Gabrielle who was responsible.
Q
What happens to Joxer's brothers?
A
Presumably Jet spends the rest of his life in prison as we see him sentanced to in 'Prince of Assassins'. In 'Eve' we are told that Meg has taken her sons and daughters to visit family in Athens. We know that Meg is an orphan and that Joxer is from Athens so it implies she is going to visit Jace who must still be alive.
