Eve, the Messenger of Eli and the former Bringer of Twilight was a human female from the past. She is the daughter of Xena and Typhuss James Halliwell. When Xena first discovered she was pregnant, she said that she hadn't 'met the requirements' for it to be possible. It is later revealed that it was Callisto who placed life in Xena, to make up for all the things that they had taken out of their lives.

Hours before her birth, The Fates prophesied that Eve would bring about the deaths of the Olympian Gods. Zeus attempted to prevent this by killing the child before she was born, but an unlikely pairing of Hercules and Hera managed to stop and kill Zeus. This caused panic on Olympus and the Gods made numerous attempts at murdering the innocent child. When Xena and Gabrielle faked their own deaths in a ploy to trick the Gods, Eve was raised by the Romans. She gained a false identity of Livia, the Bitch of Rome. She slaughtered the followers of Eli and anyone who stood between her and Rome. She became engaged to Octavius, Emperor of Rome, although she was having an affair with Ares. He trained and taught her in the same manner as he did Xena. When Xena awoke from her 25-year sleep, she found Eve and took time trying to reform her. Along the way, Eve killed Joxer and left Rome to go on a killing spree with Romans who were still loyal to her. Once Xena had got through to her, her true identity was revealed and The Gods made one final attempt at killing Eve. Eli bestowed Xena with the power to kill Gods, in order to protect his Messenger. The Gods attacked Xena and she had no qualms about killing each one of them. Eve then travelled Greece and later Chin to spread Eli's message and repent for her former sins, much like her mother did.


Before her birth, Xena's unborn daughter is prophesied to become the Bringer of Twilight; the human who will bring about an end to the rule of the Olympians. From infancy, Eve is marked for death by the Olympians who fear the prophecy coming true. Zeus attempts to kill Xena and her child before this happens, but is thwarted by Hercules, who kills him with a rib of Kronos, Xena delivers the baby with Gabrielle's help in the shade of a tree, moments after Zeus's demise. Xena names the girl Eve, a name that her deceased son Solan, suggested upon seeing him in the underworld.

Xena's death and ChildhoodEdit



Meanwhile, Athena becomes the leader of the Olympian gods, and they continue their ceaseless persecution of the infant Eve. Driven to desperation effort to escape, Xena, Typhuss and Gabrielle fake their deaths using Celesta's tears. However, the plan backfires when, Ares, believing the heroines to be dead, buries their bodies in an icy tomb where the temperatures keep them frozen for twenty-five years. Prior to faking their deaths, Xena, Typhuss and Gabrielle entrusted Eve's safety to Octavius and it is he who raises Eve in her mother's absence. Octavius eventually becomes known as Augustus Caesar and he raises Eve as Livia who becomes Rome's greatest champion and a brutal warrior, also engaged to him so that she can rule Rome herself. However, she was also the protege and lover of Ares, who was unaware of her true identity.

Identity and Re-meeting XenaEdit

When Xena, Typhuss and Gabrielle emerge from their icy tomb, they traveled to Rome with an older Joxer and his son Virgil. The former attempts to appeal to her daughter but fails. Xena manages to defeat Livia in fair combat to secure the release of Gabrielle,  Typhuss, Joxer, Virgil and various other prisoners. Ares, having deduced that Livia is actually Eve, had serious doubts that she would actually bring about Olympus' destruction. He pointed out that if she was their nightmare destroyer, then she would've done so already. Therefore, the only thing afflicting the gods is fear.

Eve sees the Light

Eve sees the light and reforms

Livia went on a rampage across the land, determined to exterminate any remaining followers of Eli, who taught pacifism and independence from the Olympian gods. She even kills Joxer, when he attempts to stop her from killing Gabrielle. Xena then accepts that Eve is dead and only Livia remains. With the help of Octavius, they stage a trap for Eve. However, Xena couldn't bring herself to kill her own daughter. Livia took advantage of her hesitation. But before she could kill her mother, a light shines on her, showing her various moments of Xena taking care of her when she was a baby, and learns that her mother truly did care for her. The reformed Livia once again takes on the name of Eve.

Reformation and the TwilightEdit

Horrified by her sins, Eve ran out into the desert, where she is attacked by those who remember her as Livia. She is saved by Xena, Typhuss and Gabrielle, who bring her to followers of Eli. As they cleanse her of her sins, the Archangel Michael gives Xena the power to kill gods as long as Eve is alive, to prepare for the coming of the God of Love. This development causes the Olympians to redouble their efforts to kill Xena and her daughter. Athena's plan hinged on using the Furies to drive Gabrielle against Eve. However, the Olympians prematurely attack Eve during her cleansing, which results in a number of them being killed by Xena. They flee to Joxer's farm, where they attempt to hide. However, the Furies influence Gabrielle to attempt to murder Eve. Xena mistakenly mortally wounds her friend. After killing Hades and Deimos, Aphrodite brought the three to Olympus where Xena attempted to bargain healing Gabrielle, Typhuss and Eve in exchange for leaving the Olympians alone. Athena refused and fought Xena as Eve, Typhuss and Gabrielle slipped closer to death. Ares gave up his powers and immortality to save the three, which resulted in Athena's death.

The Messenger of EliEdit

Eve Defense

Eve defends herself

After the Twilight of the Gods, Eve forge peace with the amazons and sets about trying to atone for her past, she leaves Xena, Typhuss and Gabrielle to go to Chin as part of her quest of redemption and for Eli's word to be heard there.

Powers and abilitiesEdit

As a warlord and being trained by Ares, Livia/Eve learned great fighting and weapon skills. She also had very fast reflexes and could jump and flip almost as good as her mother. Her strongest weapon though is her army. She has good battle strategy skills, and lead her army to kill for her and Rome.

Besides Xena, Gabrielle, and Callisto, she was the only other person who could catch the chakram. She was never shown throwing it though. It's possible that she was only able to catch it because she had Callisto's spirit in her, or because she was Xena's daughter.

As the Messenger of Eli, Eve was given many heavenly powers. Examples of those powers are being able to exorcise evil spirits, see evil in people's hearts, and maybe even heal people. Her blood being dripped into Hell was also able to summon the devil, and her being alive is what gives Xena her power to kill gods.
