Sure, Adama's son, decorated Warrior, and Galactica strike Captain, but what is he on the inside? Where is the reality that is Apollo?

I've been waiting for someone who likes him better than me to do this. Laughing
No takers, so poor ole Apollo gets stuck with my take on him.
The perfectionist. The "be all things, to all people" kind of character. The perfect son, the perfect father, the perfect friend, the perfect strike captain. I've heard other people claim he doesn't stand up to his father, but if that was so . . . well, he wouldn't be . . . perfect.

My favourite thing about Apollo is his indignant righteousness. Not because I particularly like the trait, but because it's enjoyable to write. Wink

Okay. He's the Galactic Superhero. Hopefully, that will start some discussion. Twisted Evil

My, you're frisky tonight, aren't you? As I said, it's my favourite thing about Apollo, but makes him a tad predictable. That's why I love to write him into embarrassing situations in my stories. It makes him more human.

But of course. Perhaps there is hope for civilization up there, yet!



Very Happy

How high is your own petard....?
