Apollo is the 3rd-born of the high archangels spawned by Yulia. Apollo was spawned after the archangel Lucifer turned evil and was defeated not long after. Apollo was intended to be a replacement for Lucifer.
Apollo is a handsome being. He has tanned skin, semi-curly shoulder-length blond hair, and blue eyes. He is relatively effeminate for a male deity. As is common in archangels, Apollo has 2 large wings attached to his back. His wings have white feathers. Apollo has gained a reputation as the best male lover among the gods, and female deities and mortals have sought him out for him to make love to them.
Apollo wears a thin white cloth tunic, which covers his torso, shoulders, and pelvis, and reaches to mid-thigh. On top of that he wears a roman-style cuirass, as is common in male archangels. Apollo's cuirass is made of pure gold, and has simple embossed designs on it.
Apollo is not much of a fighter. Apollo is able to attack by forming balls of light in the palms of his hands and shooting them at opponents, but that is not a particularly powerful attack. In a fight against other powerful gods, Apollo typically can not hold his own, so he prefers to fight alongside other gods.
Apollo's lair is in Murcuria, on Mount Celestia. Apollo's lair is a large stationary cloud in the sky.
"Beauty is a virtue. To serve beauty is to serve righteousness."
Clergy and Temples
The clergy of Apollo dress beautifully, wearing intricately detailed articles made of gold, silver, and copper. Such articles are padded underneath with cloth, so as to reduce the lightning hazard. The clergy of Apollo create beautiful things.
Apollo's temples are exceptionally beautiful. They are made of marble, and in the interior there are various paintings and sculptures, and even music boxes. The temples double as art museums. Since the temples of Apollo are often attacked by raiders and thieves, they are well guarded.
