Gabrielle is much more than a "sidekick" (in fact, if you call her
that you may get a staff upside your head!)...she is a calming and
loving influence in the storm that is Xena's life. Gabrielle was born and raised in Potediea, but always knew she wanted
more out of life than that simple village existence. She wanted to be
needed...to seek adventure...and to find a place where she was valued
for herself, and allowed to *be* herself.
When Xena saved her village from Slave Raiders, Gabrielle saw in the
Warrior Princess what she had always wanted to be...strong,
independent, and skilled in the fighting arts.
She was enamored of Xena, and knew her Destiny was tied somehow with
the tall dark haired woman.
She followed Xena when she left Potediea, and although the Warrior
made many protestations finally gave in and allowed her to travel
with her. Within a very short time the Warrior wondered how had she
ever travelled alone.
Gabrielle eventually learned to fight using a bo, or fighting staff.
In keeping with her basic nature and philosophy of not killing, that
weapon allowed her to fight and defend herself by knocking an
attacker unconscious without dealing a killing blow. It was the
perfect choice for her.
She and Xena are One...Soul mates for All Time and Eternity. The Bard
and the Warrior....gentleness and might...light and dark...yin and
yang...they walk together and go through life seeking the balance the
other gives them.
Bard's Fashion Tip of the Day
Welcome to Gabrielle's Fashion Tip of the Day for Bards. When wondering the country, keeping Xena in check, and saving butt, the long skirt just doesn't do. That's right girls, the peasant look is out! Let's take a tip from our friendly neighborhood Amazons and get in style with crop tops, sports bras, short skirts, and boots. But of course, Bards need to be colourful, so that black or brown leather is definitely not an option. So remember girls, the "peasant" fashion on the right is a fashion don't, and the clothing modeled on the lovely *me* below is a fashion do! Thanks for listening and check in tomorrow when we'll discuss why long hair is still in style.
