Apollo

Profile

Apollo is one of the most popular gods, and everybody wants to worship him (back in ancient Greece he was a total rock star). Is it because he's the god of music and rocks out on the lyre? Is it because he's the god of prophecy and everybody wants to know the future? Who knows? But the bottom line is that Apollo is the coolest kid in school.
