Discord is a recurring minor villainess in Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Xena: Warrior Princess, and Young Hercules.

She was portrayed by Meighan Desmond.


Eris or Discord was the goddess of chaos. She is Ares ' twin sister and a daughter of Zeus and Hera and the mother of Strife. Discord often assists Ares in his plots against their half-brother Hercules. Eris is not only the sister of Ares but also his flunky and lover.

Being a lesser deity, Discord never really became a big deal but as Goddess of Chaos did her job well. Also becoming a thorn in the side of Xena, Ares gave Discord a chance to be Goddess of Retribution after Nemesis, but she was given her original title back. She was also briefly involved with the conflict against the God of Evil, Dahak.

During the Twilight of the Gods, Discord joined the other Olympians in attempting to kill Xena and her daughter Eve, breaking with Ares (who held back because of his feelings for the Warrior Princess) for the first time. Xena, imbued with the power to kill deities, chopped her head off during the final assault on Olympus.
