Hi, my name is... MaellALTARED STATES (19/119)
Played by Karl Urban, who also appeared as Julius Caesar in DESTINY (36/212) and Cupid in FOR HIM THE BELL TOLLS (40/216) and COMEDY OF EROS (46/222)
In ALTARED STATES, Maell was the evil older brother of Icus, the Xenaverse equivalent to the biblical Isaac. He was responsible for drugging his father into believing that he must sacrifice his youngest son to God to prove his faith. He resorted to this scheme when he found out that his father intended to name his younger brother as their clan's next leader - instead of following tradition giving that position to the eldest boy in the family. He believed that Xena was a "freak of nature" and as such was an "affront to God" which could only mean that she must die, with the aid of Maell and his band of loyal followers. At the end of ALTARED STATES, Mael refuses to take Xena's hand to save himself, and he falls off a cliff, allowing "God's will [to] be done." [RG]

Hi, my name is... ManusDREAMWORKER (03/103)
Played by Nathaniel Lees, who also appeared in DESTINY (36/212) as Nicklio
Manus was a priest of Morpheus, and definitely the power behind the godhood (so to speak). He had Gabrielle kidnapped to sacrifice her blood innocence to the god. He was killed by Xena. Appearance: DREAMWORKER (03/103). [CC]
Hi, my name is... MaphiasREMEMBER NOTHING (26/202)
Played by Robert Harte
Xena's finacee in an alternative timeline. He betrayed Xena, Lyceus, and Gabrielle through his naivity, but made up for it by rescuing them. He fought with them against the warlords in the end.
Hi, my name is... MarcusTHE PATH NOT TAKEN (05/105) and MORTAL BELOVED (16/116)
Played by Bobby Hosea
Xena's great love. In THE PATH NOT TAKEN, she got him to take a walk on the "right" path, but only moments before he got shish-kabobbed. In MORTAL BELOVED, Xena arranged for him to have 24 hours back on Earth to recover Hades' helmet of invisibility. That turned out to be more time than enough for a quickie with Xena and to convince Hades to transfer him from Tartarus to the Elysian Fields. He was Xena's... friend.
Hi, my name is... MarleusA FISTFUL OF DINARS (14/114)
Played by John Smith [who also played Bloomer in LOST MARINER]
Marleus appears very briefly as the man who had originally hired the assassin Thersites to bring him the head of Covenus. He confronts Thersites, who has forgotten about his assignment in his excitement over Sumerian treasure and ambrosia, and threatens to kill him along with Xena, Gabrielle, and Petracles. He is quickly dispatched by Thersites, who kills Marleus with a spring-loaded dagger hidden in his sleeve. [ND]
Hi, my name is... MarmaxIS THERE A DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE? (24/124)
Played by Ray Woolf
Marmax was a Mitoan general in the civil war being fought around the medical temple in IS THERE A DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE? Xena wounded him in the shoulder to bring him with her into the temple, presumably to utilize his help - he wasn't badly wounded - and ultimately to show him what the war had become, so that he would put a stop to it. Though he tries to make his cause sound just, Xena doesn't buy it, and she forces him to re-examine his methods and his 'cause'. Gabrielle tells him a touching story that teaches him a lot, whether he knows it at the time or not, about finding peace within yourself and sharing it with the world. He lends a hand in Ephiny's delivery, and tries to get Xena to let Gabrielle go when she seems to have died. As we know, Gabrielle wakes up, and Marmax does put an end to the war by negotiating with the opposition. [RG]

Played by Ian Hughes
Melas' son was killed by Callisto masquerading as Xena. He vowed revenge, and followed after in her search for the mysterious imposter. When Xena captured Callisto she demanded that Callisto get a fair trial, not a lynching. Melas led a group of villagers in attempting to burn Callisto alive. All he succeded in doing was allowing Callisto to escape and Gabrielle to be captured.

Hi, my name is... MeleagerTHE PRODIGAL (19/119) and THE EXECUTION (41/217)
Played by Tim Thomerson
Meleager is one of Gabrielle's childhood heros, and becomes a fatherly figure to her in both THE PRODIGAL and THE EXECUTION. When we first meet him, Meleager is obviously very drunk, and he stays that way until Gabrielle brings him out of his bout of severe self-pity, just in time to save her village. As a recovering alcoholic, Meleager was willing to do anything to cover up the fact that he had been drinking again -- trying not to disappoint Gabrielle. In THE EXECUTION, his desire to remain heroic in Gabrielle's eyes almost got him killed. Gabrielle got him out of jail, then defended him by putting herself between Meleager and Xena, when Xena was fulfilling a promise to bring him back to stand trial. Xena saved the day by proving that the judge that condemned Meleager was dishonest, not to mention he tried to twist justice into his own creation by manipulating events and people. At the end of the episode, all is right between Meleager and Gabrielle and we are even led to believe that Meleager may be the person to fulfill the position vacated by the crooked judge. [RG]
Hi, my name is... Menelaus, KingBEWARE OF GREEKS BEARING GIFTS (12/112)
Played by Ken Blackburn
Husband of Helen. He went after her after Paris abducted her and took her to Troy. He brought most of Greece with him and wound up destroying Troy and creating one of the most powerful and popular stories in human history. In the Xenaverse, all he really does is plot with Demophobus, Paris' brother, only to be eventually betrayed by the same.
Hi, my name is... MenticlesTHE PRICE (44/220)
Played by Paul Glover
After Galipan's death, Menticles and Mercer are in command of the fort. Luckily for them, Xena arrives and then takes over. Menticles is much more filled with hype and machoisms than Mercer. Menticles wanted to further torture the Horde prisoner, G'Kug, but Xena leashed him in.
Hi, my name is... MercerTHE PRICE (44/220). Played by Charles Mesure
A young, dark-haired man, Mercer is leading the small contingent of Athenian soldiers who meet up with Xena and Gabrielle when they are attacked by the Horde. He takes them to the fort. When their commander Galipan dies, Mercer and Menticles take over and appoint Xena de facto commander. Menticles is the gung-ho one, and Mercer is the pragmatic one. Mercer is chosen to sneak out of the fort for reinforcements. He dies but has enough strength to drag himself back near the fort where he utters his last words that, yup, he should have done what Xena told him and that he never got to call for reinforcements.
Hi, my name is... MesasHOOVES & HARLOTS (10/110)
Played by Anthony Starr [who also played David in GIANT KILLER]
Centaur who gets hurt trying to attack Xena. She ends up saving his life. Looks suspiciously like the Israelite David. [SR]
As Xena first approaches the Centaur village to mediate for the Amazons, Mesas, a young Centaur, appears from behind a tree and shoots at her with an arrow, which she deflects. He then charges at her with a lance. Xena shoves him into a fallen tree where he breaks his ribs and is unable to breathe. Confronted with Tyldus, Xena offers to heal Mesas, which she does by numbing his chest, then opening a hole and sticking her hand inside his chest to set his ribs. His only line is "I can't feel my chest," after Xena puts the touch on him. Later, he is seen at Tyldus' side when Tyldus goes to the Amazon village to get his son Phantes back. Then when the Centaurs and Amazons join forces against Krykus, Mesas is one of the Centaurs pulling the chariot with Xena and Melosa, and then joins in on the battle at Tyldus' side.
Hi, my name is... MesmerDREAMWORKER (03/103)
Played by Michael Daly
While in Xena's dreamscape, Mesmer is the first of her victims to come to her. After the others join him, he invites Xena to kill them all again. Xena realizes that this is a trick by Morpheus to slow her down, so she moves on. We never get to hear Mesmer's wife's name.

Xena killed him after Marcus was murdered. Mezentius was also featured in the alternate-timeline episode REMEMBER NOTHING.
