Apollo is one of the main characters of Genesis of Aquarion. He was believed to be the reincarnation of Apollonius, but it is revealed in Aquarion EVOL he is actually the reincarnation of Pollon, Apollonius' loyal companion.
Apollo has red hair and a scar on his face. He wears green clothes and some feathers as necklace.
He acts like an animal and even goes to hunt to the forest. However, he also has a warm and caring side, this is shown when he keeps Silvia and Sirius secret of them being Shadow Angel hybrids. He tries to cheer Silvia up by giving her a statue.
A feral youth from Arc City, he was found by Silvia and Pierre during their expedition to find the mythical "Solar Wing", whom they at first thought was him. His talents as an Element manifested when the Shadow Angels seized all of the cintizenry of the city. Due to his inherently animalistic nature, the ferocious nature of his abilities surged in a berserk fury unlike any of the Elements or DEAVA had seen, thus solidifying his status amidst their ranks.
Apollo gradually learns and acquires new talents, as well as showing his amazing ability to pilot Aquarion. Eventually, it is revealed he carries only a part of Apollonius' reincarnated soul. Following the collapse of the Tree of Life, Apollo bravely chooses to sacrifice himself, along with Sirius and Toma to restore the world. However, he promises Silvia that he will return in 12,000 years (although it is never explained precisely why this particular time is chosen, it could possibly be some reference to the next reincarnation cycle).
His name, uniquely, is not originally his own. After swimming in a frigid lake in the dead of winter, his childhood friend, Baron decided to name him Apollo after watching the sunlight bathe around his frame. This is a clear homage to the true Greek God Apollo, who was stated to have been born in the bank of a lake.
In the OVA's world he lives by himself in a forest where he and his grandfather once lived, and where he continues to live with the creatures of the forst 2 years after his grandfather's death. In his time in the forest he has bonded with the creatures and tree's and is able to understand them and in turn wishing to protect them. Apollo often has to kill his friends as they were dying from wounds which he would grant them a quick painless death instead, he would keep their skulls as a memorial near his grandfather's grave. Apollo would claim that by eating the forest creatures and plants he allows them to live on in him, giving thanks to the food for that. Apollo lives in a cave which he has placed a bed and several textbooks, likely from his grandfather.
Apollo is first seen in a full cloak roaming in the forest, during DEAVA's clash against Toma he witnesses the battle in the Assault Aquarion mechs which detroy the forest with their steps, the pain of the forest's destruction awakened his reincarnation and channeled his ability, alerting Reika (who belives herself to be Celiane's reincarnation) and Toma to his presence. He captures Silvia and Reika as they crashed landed in his forest. For causing destructions to his home he locked them up in a small makeshift jail in his cave like home. He shows kindness to them even though they destroyed part of his home by giving them food and explaining his views on the forest and its creatures. Being a makeshift jail cell, Slivia and Reika were able to break free due do Silvia's element ability. In the meantime Apollo is visited by Gen Fudou in a dream who urges him to look beyond the world he sees (in a mock fight mimicing the opening theme's animation from the original anime ).
When Silvia & Reika left to go outside they saw Apollo swimming and bathing, Apollo openly approaches the pair (after the birds informed his of their escape) and shows them his grandfather's grave & discussing his beliefs with Silvia while Reika noticed the forest was the ruins of the ancient city Apollonius and the humans used as a base in the war against the Shadow Angels. At this point Toma appears in an image and attempts to lure Apollo back, when Apollo claims his passion for the forest toma start to to burn it by his singing. The destruction enraged Apollo which awakened the legendary Aquarion vectors merging into Aquarion Sol with Reika & Silvia (who he called out to as Scorpius & Celiane ). The OVA ends with Aquarion's Mugen Punch chasing & eventually hitting Toma's Cherubim.
The second OVA reveals that Toma was dissapointed with the unawakend Solar wing's power (as Apollonius' punch would reach to the moon), he proceded to over power Aquarion which lead to Silvia's hospitalisation. While Apollo would visit Silvia and ajust to the new DEAVA base, Reika and Silvia had their memories of past lives manipulated by Toma's feather, eventually leading to Apollo being stabbed and Silvia becoming the prime suspect.
Gen confronts Apollo in his healing process and delivers a Gen style typical lecture, to which the both laugh at his not following. As Silvia attempts to escape in Vector Luna Apollo gives chase in Vector Sol. Silvia expresses her worry that she is Scorpius' reincarnation (even revealing her shadow angel wing) and will try to kill Apollo again, which Apollo responds to by forcing a merge with her. Reika, Jun and Tsugumi follow in the Assalt Vectors and merge to confront the pair.
When Reika's emotions cause the formation of the Beat Aquarion, Pierre arrives in Vector Mars and merges to form Solar Aquarion, awakening memories in the reincarnations from 12,000 years agao to the destruction of Atlandia and Apollonius's death. At their breaking points Toma & Otoha arrive in cherubims and reveals the feather he implanted in Rieka as well as the truth of her being the attacker on Apollo as well as being the real reincarnation of Scorpius. This breaks the merge in the assault Aquarion and allows Pierre to switch places with Reika (and free her from the feather).
Otoha confronts Pierre and the Assault Aquarion whilst Toma Apollo and theLegendary Aquarion. Pierre's team seemingly wins against Otoha and returns to aid Apollo against Toma. Tomas' Barrier appears unbreakable at first but Pierre uses the shadow angel feather's power to augment his own (as Glen had done in the anime). The power increase almost defeats Toma, but a surviving Otoha sacrifices herself to blow up the Assault Vectors, his comrades fully awkaens Apollo's Solar Wings.
A following battle acts as Toma's plan of commencing the Ceremony of Wings, crystalising the world in Raganarock and Impregnating Toma's Cherubim, however Apollo & Silvia's love causes them to over flow and power and Ragnarock fails along with the immediate misscaridge of Toma's child. Enraged, Toma severs Silvia's arm and forces Aquarion to split.
Apollo in a dream like state calls to Silvia and Reika, who appear resenting the destruction they have caused. They then come to understand that the reason Aquarion is in three parts is to prevent to strong a love between 2 pilots over powering the world and destroying it. They then preform a Mugen punch to defeat Toma once and for all, which they follow up with the ultimate Genesis Mugen Punch that revives the world anew. The OVA ends stating that the Genesis punch affected the time space contium in such a way that it effected another world , causing Apollo of that world to briefly see Silvia's feather (and Silvia and Pierre remembering his name as they hunt for Solar Wings).
Apollo's primary Element powers focus on his animalistic sense of smell, agility, and climbing abilities. He can fight like an animal and is very flexible. Other than that, he is also the only one show to be able to use infinity punch in Solar Aquarion. He is also the holder of Solar wings , granting him the ability of producing Phantom wings, Flight and Awakening Aquarion & hearing Apollonius' voice.
Pollo, a Shadow Angel with the appearance of a winged hound, fell in love with Celiane and wished "If I was reborn then let me meet Celiane again". His dream came true and Pollo was reincarnated as Apollo. Fate then brought the two together. They started to fall in love with each other. At the end of Genesis of Aquarion, Apollo entered the Legendary Aquarion along with Toma and Sirius, leaving Silvia behind. Before he left, he kissed her and told her that they would meet again after 12, 000 years. Now, in Aquarion EVOL, Kagura, Amata and Mikono (who are the reincarnations of Silvia and Apollo) meet again.
Sirius was presumably the other half of Celiane's reincarnation. When he was interacting with Apollo, he felt rivarly towards him. He battled with him for the title of the Solar Wing, claiming that he was Apollonius true reincarnation.
In the series Genesis of Aquarion, Apollo and Reika had a friends relationship. However, in the OVA, Reika started showing affection for Apollo, claiming that she was the reincarnation of Celiane and that he was the reincarnation of Apollonius and that they were ment to be together. However, at the end it was revealed that she was the reincarnation of Scorpio, who attempted to kill Apollonius. Despite this, Apollo, Silvie and Reika united to defeat Toma.
In Genesis of Aquarion and it's OVA, Toma thought that Apollo was the reincarnation of Apollonius and thus lusted after awakening him. He would set up a series of challenges to both collect prana for the Shadow Angels as well as progressively awaken Apollo, though acting in very twisted and teasing ways to do so. Once awakened he attempted to force Apollo to join him in his various goals (in the original anime fertilising the tree of life, in the OVA creating Rangnarock and pregnating himself), failing in both. In the orginal series, after failing to fertilise the tree of life, Toma merges with Apollo in aquarion to aid in replacing the tree of life, happy to finally be one with "Apollonius". However, after Toma found out that Apollo was never the reincarnation of Apollonius, he fell into despair and anger and became the persona known as Mykage in Aquarion EVOL. In EVOL, he was the one responsible for seperating Amata's soul, whom is the reincarnation of Apollo, into two.
He is the reincarnation of Pollon, Apollonius' dog. This was originally intended to be revealed in the first series, and hints were dropped to lead up to it, but it was sidetracked by the romance subplot between Apollo and Silvia. Nonetheless, he was explicitly stated to not be the reincarnation of Apollonius, leaving his past life a mystery until it was revealed in Aquarion Evol.
