Alti is a shamaness amazonian from the Northern Amazon tribes around Siberia, but was banished for being so power hungry.

Destroyer of Nations[]

She was once an ally of Xena when she was a warlord, and was the one to curse her son Solan. She trained Xena to be a shaman, and promised Xena the power of the "Destroyer of Nations" if she could find the Ixion stone for Alti. Xena got away from Alti because she wanted to keep her unborn son safe.

Fighting Xena[]

Years later, Xena came back to Siberia to find Gabrielle in the Amazon spirit world, but ended up leading an Amazon tribe against Alti. Alti showed Xena a vision of her death to kill her, but Xena ended up killing Alti afterwards.

Yakut, the shamaness of the northern tribe after Xena left, tried using Alti's bones to gain power. She accidently freed Alti's soul who threatened the life of Xena's unborn child and forced Xena to bring her back to life. Xena tricked her though and trapped her back inside her skeleton.

Because Alti is such a powerful shamaness, she can never really be killed. Her karma and evil would just be reincarnated into a new body with her same powers and memories. In the future, she came back as an Indian warlord who was taking karmic power from the people in that time, waiting to take power from Xena's. Xena and Grabrielle took her back to their time, which made Alti even stronger, but they were able to kill her using the power of Mhendi. She was then put back into the karmic cycle, and after Xena and Gabrielle died, she sealed all the Xena Scrolls in a cave so no one would know what a great hero she was.


In present day, she was a genetic engineer named Alexis. She cloned Xena and Gabrielle from strands of their hair found in the cave of the Xena scrolls. With the help of expert Xenites, she had their memories awakened by watching Xena: Warrior Princess episodes. Alti tried making Xena evil again to ruin her reputation that the TV show made people see she was. Gabrielle turned Xena good again, and Xena electricuted Alti to death.

Alternate reality[]

High Priestess Alti

Caesar changed the loom of fate and made an alternate reality, where Alti worked for him and Xena as a High Priestess, and Caesar's mistress. Because she was a link between worlds, she was able to use Xena to see who she was in the other reality, and gain new powers. She and a group of Roman soldiers defeated alternate reality Xena and had her crucified. She then murdered Caesar, but died when Gabrielle destroyed the tampered loom of fate.

Powers and abilities[]

Alti was a very powerful shamaness. At first she wasn't ultimately strong until she took the blood of another shamaness Amazon queen named Cyane. After that she got almost endless amounts of powers, like the gods, and always had a new one to show.


Alti summoning spirits from a fire

Her main power was the ability to make a person experience something from their past or their future. She used it on Xena to make her re-experience Caesar breaking her legs, which just made them feel broken, but not actually broke them. She also tried using it on Xena to make her experience her own death in the future, but Xena broke out of it before it was too late. So this power also gives Alti the ability to see and show a person's past and future. When in an alternate reality, Alti used it on Xena and was able to see the real reality and get her powers back from it. Usually Alti needs to touch a person to make it work, but can also use it just through eye contact.

Other powers Alti used were psychic battles, moving her spirit out of her body, summoning and controlling spirits, possessing other living beings and using her powers through them, traveling to the spirit world, warping reality in the spirit world, taking out the soul of the unborn Eve, super speed and strength, morphing (her clothes at least), and placing curses. She was also able to use her powers in one of her future reincarnated bodies while she could clearly remember her past.

Amazon abilities[]

Alti was an Amazon and could jump and fight like they could. She didn't use any weapons though, but was about as good as Xena in hand to hand combat. Usually when they fought each other, neither of them used the weapons.
