Talia was an old friend of Xena, possibly from Amphipolis. By the time of Xena and Gabrielle's resurrection, she was the sheriff of Spamona. Talia had a husband called Darkon, who at some point became a ruthless warlord. Talia's mother had been a midwife, and thus Talia easily recognized that Xena was in the early stages of pregnancy. She later dueled Darkon for the fate of the town, and was victorious.
