- You may also be looking for another Janus
|Portrayed By||Christopher Brougham|
|Appearance||Hercules and the Circle of Fire|
|Series||Hercules: The Legendary Journeys|
|Cause of Death||Disembodied heart crushed|
Janus was a warlock who was able to live on the life forces of others. In so doing, the victim would age rapidly. This was the case for a girl who was captured by Janus but rescued by Hercules. Janus had removed his heart. It was kept alive in a jar in his cave. In a fight with Hercules, Janus' heart was destroyed and thus, Janus was killed.
Janus lived in a cave in which there was a fountain reputed to have curative waters. Hercules took water from the fountain to try to cure his friend Cheiron's wounds.
Janus was credited as "Warlock/Janus", suggesting that Janus may have been an alternate identity for the warlock, who was otherwise unnamed. The warlock was not named outside of the credits.
