Commander Lexa was a reoccurring character in The 100 series.


Lexa, who first appeared in Season 2[1], is Commander of the Grounders, and was originally a member of the Woods Clan. She is initially in conflict with the Sky People but works with Clarke and her people, to attack the Mount Weather. She is portrayed as a wise and determined leader of her people who struggles to form relationships due to her responsibilities and her position of power.

Lexa betrays Clarke on the eve of their battle with the Mountain people. She does this to save her own people. Clarke later forgives Lexa, allowing the two to become allies again, and later lovers. Lexa is accidentally killed by Titus in Season 3.


In Season 2, The 100 fandom seemed to explode after Clarke and Lexa's onscreen kiss[2]. It's also the first onscreen kiss between two girls.


The most popular ship for Lexa is Lexa/Clarke (Clexa), with fans referring to themselves as Clexakru (Clexa Crew).The second most popular pairing being Lexa/Costia, which pairs Lexa with her deceased former lover. A rarepair is Lexa/Anya.

There is some interest in a threesome relationship of Lexa/Clarke/Bellamy, which can be offered as a solution to the Bellarke vs Clexa ship war.

A large proportion of fics including Lexa as a main character are Alternative Universe fics. These include Modern AUs, and possibly due to the age of the fanbase many of these are College AUs. There are also a large number of Canon Divergence AU
