Apollo is the son of Commander Adama, the leader
of the last Battlestar, The Galactica. He serves
as a commander of sorts for the small squad of
supercharged space attack ships known as the
vipers. He appears to die during a battle with a
character known as Count Iblis but who really is
better known as lucifer, the devil, or the prince
of darkness. After his apparent death a group of
energy beings give life back to him.
Apollo believes his father is the best, and
only just leader for what remains of humanity. In
spite of Colonial Council meetings to remove his
father from power, Apollo always sticks by his
father no matter what. Apollo finds a romantic
interest in Serina a girl he rescues from
annhilation at the hands of the cylons. Apollo
helps Serina's son by having a robotic dog
constructed for him.
Above all else Apollo is a warrior. He
represents ideals to a generation of warriors
that are yet to be.
