Legendary Journeys

Phantes is a character on Xena: Warrior Princess. A noble Centaur, Phantes was the son of Tildus the Great and father of Xenan. He was framed for the murder of Terreis, the Amazon that Gabrielle protected. Once proven innocent, he grew fond of Ephiny, his former enemy. They married and she became pregnant with his child. On the way to Athens, Phantes and a heavily pregnant Ephiny became caught up in a long-running civil war between the Mitoans and the Thessalians. Phantes was hunted down and killed by Mitoan dogs, whilst the soldiers looked on and laughed.

Phantes is Deric's cousin (HTLJ "The Wedding of Alcmene").


Phantes, in Greek mythology, is one of the sons of Aegyptus and Caliadne. He married (and was murdered by) Theano, one of the Danaids, daughter of Danaus and Polyxo.
