Self-proclaimed King of Thieves and lovable rogue. Although he does his best to appear as if he doesn't care about anyone, he has a heart as big as his ego! He is a friend to Xena and Gabrielle and has helped them in their quests on more than one occasion.

We learn from "The Royal Couple Of Thieves" that Autolycus became a thief to avenge his brother, who was murdered by a merchant named Tarsus. Autolycus stole everything that Tarsus owned and earned a reputation as a master thief. In "Vanishing Act" Autolycus has the chance to kill his brother's murderer but lets him live instead.
