Saxa (Ellen Hollman): On historical action drama Spartacus, Saxa was introduced as one of a group of Germanic prisoners rescued from a slave ship and became one of the Rebels under Spartacus’ command. Saxa possessed an aggressive, powerful personality that she shared with many of the other Germanic fighters, and at the beginning only spoke their native tongue. However, unlike most of the other women in the series, Saxa was battle-hardened and frequently boasted of her skills in combat. She enjoyed challenging men to battle, wanting to prove that her strength was on par with, or greater than any man’s, at one point punching her lover Nemetes to the ground when he playfully insults her, before straddling and then kissing him. She was also shown kissing women at random, as an expression of her bisexuality.
In Spartacus: War of the Damned (Season 3 of the original series) Saxa and the former champion gladiator Gannicus became lovers, but their relationship was quite open and they were seen taking other women with them to bed. However, Saxa became upset over Gannicus’ new lover Sibyl and ended things with him. Later, she takes the former slave Belesa as her lover, and they are shown standing together before the final battle against the Romans. Saxa and Belesa shared a tender moment together before Saxa takes to battle with the others, and was killed in battle in the final episode.
