Traditionally a bard is a poet-singer who composes and recites epic stories. In Xena fandom it describes anyone who writes fanfiction. The use of the term is in honor of the XWP character Gabrielle of Poteidaia, who is a bard in canon.[1]

The term bard often appears in meta about the fandom and in the names of some of the most important Xena fanfic sites such as The Bard's Corner or The Royal Academy of Bards.
