Hi, my name is... BacchusGIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN (28/204)
Played by Anthony Ray Parker [who also played Pinullus in COMEDY OF EROS]
The evil God of Wine. His followers are Bacchae. These young, innocent women are turned into vampire-like creatures, whose only allegiance is to Bacchus. (On an aesthetic note, Bacchus looks an awful lot like the creature from the film Legend.) Bacchus can only be killed by a Bacchae, who must use a Dryad bone for the weapon. [SR]
The god of wine, Bacchus, who looks like the devil incarnate, has stopped Orpheus from playing his lyre in the Bacchae forest by separating his head from his body. This allows his Bacchae to capture more young women from a village for his lair. Xena sets out to rescue the women, and it turns out that she and Bacchus are bitter enemies. Later, when Gabrielle is captured and turned into a Bacchae, Xena is forced to confront Bacchus to save Gabrielle. Bacchus wants Xena more than anything else to become one of his Bacchae, so he says he can be killed only by a Bacchae. Xena allows Gabrielle to bite her and turn her into a Bacchae, then she destroys his physical form by stabbing him with a dryad bone. But being a god and an immortal, he is not really killed, and he just laughs at Xena after she and Gabrielle have rescued the women. [ND]
