Apollo's Biography
Apollo was the Olympian god of music, prophecy, colonization, medicine, archery, dance, and poetry. He was also known as Phoebus, the god of light. He was the son of Zeus and Leto. Artemis and Apollo were born on the island of Delos, a holy island for the Greek before the 14th century BC. Hera, the wife of Zeus, was jealous of Leto when she was pregnant with Apollo and Artemis. Artemis was Apollo's twin sister. Apollo also had many affairs with mortals and goddesses like his father. He fell in love with someone of the same gender, Hyacinthus. Hyacinthus was the Spartan Prince and very athletic and handsome. The Greek worshiped Apollo. He was also known as Archigetes or the leader of colonists. Apollo is described as a handsome man through art and sculptures. There are many sculptures of Apollo in the Temple of Zeus. The Greek sing a song called paean in honor of Apollo.

Weaknesses

The serpent was sent out by Hera and smelled up the place wherever it went. Its purpose was to chase Leto (Zeus' lover). The myth says that Apollo found the serpent and it attacked him, but Apollo was to quick and threw and arrow at the beast and pierced its forehead.
