Julius Caesar - played by Karl Urban

Julius Caesar hardly needs an introduction - a cruel and power hungry Roman commander who used great conquests to win himself power and influence in Rome. Rising to become one of the triumbrivate who controlled The Roman Empire, he tried to become Emporor of Rome but didn't succeed thanks to being betrayed by Brutus (or did Xena have a hand in his downfall?). Early in his career he was captured by Xena while marauding the seas and managed to pursuade her to release him with promises of becoming an ally. Subsequently returned, capturing and crucifying Xena and her entire crew - Xena only survived thanks to the ministrations of M'lila who was subsequently killed by Caesar. Xena hates Caesar with a vengence and is liable to go off the handle when she thinks she has the chance to kill or otherwise defeat him. Gabrielle is also none to fond of him since he tried to have her crucified too.
He appears in the following episodes:

Pompey - played by Jemery Callaghan
