Characters: Genesis of Aquarion
open/close all folders
Voiced by: Takuma Terashima (JP), Christopher Bevins (EN)The male protagonist. Apollo is an orphan who grows up amongst a group of homeless children. His name is given to him by his best friend Baron, as a reference to the legendary Greek god Apollo. Apollo possesses a kind heart and noble spirit behind his rude, aggressive and bestial behavior, with extremely sharp reflexes and senses akin to a wild animal. His characteristics cause few DEAVA members to believe the rumor he is the reincarnation of the "Solar Wing" Apollonius. His main power as an Element is his fighting strength, able to shatter the head of a Cherubim Soldier with a single punch while piloting Aquarion. His identity in his past life differs between the TV series and the OAVs due to a retcon applied in Aquarion Evol, and the new character simply not existing in the OAVs.
