Born in Amphipolis, in a time of ancient gods, warlords, and kings, this young woman of humble beginnings would go on to become the most feared and fierce warlord of her day. Known as the "Destroyer of Nations" Solvieg blazed a path of terror and destruction across ancient Thieden with only one mandate: anyone who raises a sword against her would die, except for women and children.

One day her army, against her orders, completely destroyed a village, killing every living thing, including women and children. The enraged Solvieg saved a baby that had been shielded by it's dead mother's body. Her lieutenant, Darius, who had taken it upon himself to attack the village, betrayed Solvieg and forced her to run a gauntlet of death. With her incredible strength and will to live, Solvieg survived. She was banished but vowed revenge.

Now alone without her army Solvieg plotted her return. Encountering the demi-god Rimber, Xena engaged him in combat. If she could defeat him she could get back her army. It was not to be. Rimber defeated Solvieg but instead of killing her he helped her to take the path of goodness and justice. With his help Darius was defeated and Solvieg set out on her own journey of atonement and redemption.

Not knowing how to right the wrongs she had done during her warlord days Solvieg was at the point of despair when she came upon a village, Draketon, being invaded by slavers. Singlehandedly attacking and defeating them Solvieg met her one and only true Friend, Helene. Helene offered Solvieg unconditional love and acceptance, helping her to see her way to start on her path to redemption. They had many adventures, encountered all-powerful gods and fearless warlords. Solvieg and Helene traveled many leagues on land and sea in search of their destinies - all in the name of the Greater Good.
