Unlikely inspiration for the characters of Xena and Gabrielle

According to Experts: Xena, the character of Xena could have been inspired by several characters from Greek mythology.

However, I would like to offer another source of inspiration. Xena is described as someone, who was evil in the past, but repented and is now virtuous. The hypothetical source of inspiration, who was in vogue about 30 years earlier, was described as evil. Both of them had coal-black hair and they both were sexy and domineering women.

Each of them even has a female companion, with blond hair and very youthful look. There is also an hint of Lesbian relationship in both pairs.

Welcome abroad, Wicked Wanda and Candyfloss!
Oh, Wicked Wanda!
Oh, Wicked Wanda!

I am deaf since birth. I played with big computers which eat punched cards and spew out printouts since age 12. Ever since they became available, I work and play with desktop size computers which eat keyboard keypresses and spew out display pixels. Among other things, I developed software which helped the deaf in Israel use the telephone network, by means of home computers equipped with modems. Several years later, I developed Hebrew localizations for some cellular phones, which helped the deaf in Israel utilize the cellular phone networks. I am interested in entrepreneurship, Science Fiction and making the world more accessible to people with disabilities.
