Joxer was a wanna-be hero of ancient Greece. Joxer was a bumbler, but good-natured, and was a genuine aid to other heroes on occasion. He is in love with Xena's friend, Gabrielle, and has two twin brothers: Jet, the King of Assassins and practically Joxer's polaric opposite, and Jace, a rather effeminate singer and performer.
After Xena and Gabrielle were frozen for decades, Joxer married Meg, a Xena look-alike, and opened a tavern with her that honored Xena's memory. Unfortunately, he was slain by Eve, Xena's corrupted daughter. He is one of at least six heroes of the age to have descendants and reincarnations.
