Apollo Haskel is the son of Galilee, born in the settlement of L'Autre Cour alongside two sisters.

Theirs was a peaceful childhood, with frequent visits to the seaside and their relatives in the Citadel. With the aid of family and neighbors, Galilee raised her children to be as wild and bold as she was, telling them tales of Cour des Miracles and its heroes -- including their grandfather, the late Skoll Haskel.

They grew up fearing nothing and wanting for little, until they reached shifting age and their universe opened up a little more. The wonders of Portland and the wide, wild world it represented tempted the adolescents, and Galilee was forced to acknowledge the fact that she'd need to let her children loose eventually; all she could ask was that they keep each other safe.

1.  Characteristics

1.1  Appearance


Apollo is an athletic but lean wolf, with compact musculature hidden by his dense coat. He's on the larger end of average, though this does not stand out. His face is boyishly handsome, given a youthful look thanks to large ears and large, expressive eyes.

His pelt is a blend of cream-white and soft sandy-gold. His ruff is distinctly light in coloration, becoming a pale mane in Optime form. Richer tan accents his face, such as swoops along his cheekbones. He has inherited his mother and paternal grandfather's light green eyes.

  • Speech: Bright, smooth tenor. Fluent in French.
  • Scent: Sea-salt and sun-baked sand, ryegrass, coltsfoot, dust, Haskel.
  • Physical Expression & Quirks: Easygoing, friendly posture, if a little haughty. Wears a slanted smile and messes with his hair constantly, pushing it out of his face.

1.2  Personality

Summarized: Vain, lackadaisical, outgoing, self-assured, playful

Particularly doted on in childhood, Apollo grew up with more than his fair share of good self-esteem -- that is to say, grew into a vain, laidback, and occasionally entitled individual. He's grown out of the worst of this, but he still thinks a little too highly of himself and coasts through life believing things will just magically work out for him. He is friendly and sociable (if possibly a little clueless), and deep down has a good heart.

To be interpreted and fleshed out by adopter!

  • His adopter can steer him toward being a decisively good character, where his vanity is played off more as a joke, and where he's more self-aware, friendly, creative, and honorable... a good boy! Positive influences such as nice tutors can help with this.
  • However, he could just as easily go down a darker path. While I'd prefer he not be evil, he could be more of a jerk: manipulative, arrogant, and self-righteous. Or he could be regress and be played more as petulant and spoiled, if others enable him.
  • Up to adopter!
  • Apollo is most likely to pursue creative or artistic interests (e.g. music, drawing, crafting) but may be discouraged by trades that require a lot of trial-and-error or intensive training.
  • He is likely to partake in vices like soft drugs.
  • An easygoing lifestyle doesn't necessarily mean he shies away from physical endeavors; he might enjoy running or swimming, for example. (Being told to do hard labor, maybe not so much.)
  • Up to adopter!
  • He is very aware that he is pretty and probably thinks himself a Casanova. Whether he's truly that confident deep down remains to be seen.
  • Apollo was raised with watered-down belief in the Abrahamic god and the concept of good and evil; his observation of religious concepts is probably relaxed.
  • Apollo could drift away from this belief, connect with other deities, or develop more complex feelings about it.

2.  Relationships

  • Parents: Apollo was babied a lot by his mother Galilee, due to being the only son and greatly resembling his grandfather Skoll. He's gotten away with a lot more than his sisters and tends to put Lee on a pedestal. He is definitely a mama's boy; while her parenting has made him a little entitled, he aspires to make her happy.
  • Siblings: He and Delphine are partners-in-crime, co-owners of a single brain cell, finishing each other's bits and getting each other into trouble. Unlike Del, Apollo isn't bothered by Pyrrha's "parenting" and sometimes takes for granted that she'll bail them out when things go south.
