Description: He is a spare young man, of middling height and weight and a lean, lanky build. He's handsome, his features pleasing in an unassuming sort of way. He might not be the brightest star in the room, but there is a charm to his features that draws eyes back to him. A high brow and serious eyes rest over a nose that adds character to his face. His hands are large and show the signs of hard work; small scars from old knicks from sharp tools, calluses along the base of his fingers and on the pads of them as well. There is an air of distraction about him sometimes, an absent-mindedness that adds to that quirky and understated charm.
Personality: There's an ineffable charm to Apollo that sees him through most confrontations that may or may not have started with the glibness of his tongue. His wits are relied upon almost exclusively in times of trouble and they serve him rather well. He might be slow to trust, but once he does, he's loyal to the bone, so while he may call few friend, those he does, may count on him til his last.
Background: Born in Oakhaven, to parents who were both Trackers, Apollo should have had an ideal childhood. But fate was less than kind to him, and at the tender age of six, while traveling between Lyon's Redoubt and Keaton Keep, he and his family were ambushed by a group of bandits looking to thin the packs of hunters after them. Apollo's parents were killed in the conflict and the boy was taken, the plan to rear him as a bandit, the irony found to be delicious. Weeks passed, but eventually another pack of Trackers discovered the location of the bandit's hideout and cleared the lot of them out. When Apollo was found, one of the huntsmen recognized the boy and took him home to Keaton Keep where the child was raised in the court.
As an adult, he is fiercely loyal to the Keaton family. Eschewing the path of his parents, he learned the special art of tanning and leathercraft Oakhaven has become known for. The secrets of its manufacture are now his. When Kael left Oakhaven to come to Arx, he tapped his best leatherworker to come with him to see about making a name for themselves in Arx.
|Alexio||A fellow merchant and one of my closest friends. I owe him much of my knowledge. A good man; excellent at his craft.|
|Athaur||A curious sort of fellow, though not in a bad way|
|Beatrice||I collided with him, and yet he apologized and offered to clean up the mess. A kinder response than I deserved, even if I will need to get my shirt cleaned.|
|Bhandn||One hopes he does not do what I think he could have done, or that he will do similar again. I'm not convinced.|
|Jasher||Makes good leather. His dog is a menace.|
|Norwood||It's brave of him to be here and to listen to all of this - especially when his unease is so clear.|
|Petal||He seems to very much like steel silk or maybe my work and he seems a bit absented minded as well, but I think he is an okay man.|
|Reese||He seems like a thoughtful, pleasant and talented artist. I look forward to seeing and having more of his creations.|
|Videl||Master Apollo seems like a pleasant sort and a skilled artisan, if I need leathers I'll have to make sure to keep him in mind.|
|Vitalis||His store couldn't be more well-named, the wares within unlike any I've seen in the City. My only complaint: it's too far from the Bank.|
