-Passionate to the core of his nature, Apollo is celebrated for his beauty and artistic ability. However, it can become destructive. During the <Apdx ref="​open:​settings:​6d6hellenic:​apdx:​trojan_war">​Trojan war</​apdx>​ the Greeks sacked one of his temples that lay near to the landing site. From then on Apollo supported the Trojan side in the war, firing plague-ridden arrows into the Greek camp to punish them. At the end of the ten-year conflict he took his revenge upon Achilles. As the city fell to <apdx ref="​open:​settings:​6d6hellenic:​apdx:​odysseus">​Odysseus</​apdx>'​ trick, Apollo lent <apdx ref="​open:​settings:​6d6hellenic:​apdx:​paris">​Paris</​apdx>,​ the last Prince of <apdx ref=open:​settings:​6d6hellenic:​apdx:​troy">​Troy</​apdx>,​ his silver bow and guided the Prince'​s hand.

 His passion was the undoing of several would-be lovers who did not return his advances. The Trojan princess <apdx ref="​open:​settings:​6d6hellenic:​apdx:​cassandra">​Cassandra</​apdx>​ rejected Apollo in favour of a mortal love. In anger Apollo cursed her with prophecy, bestowing her with the ability to predict tragedy but dooming her to have her warnings ignored. Driven mad by her curse she leapt to her death. The Spartan prince Hyacinthus was another victim of Apollo who became besotted with the beautiful and athletic young man. One day the lovers were practising the discus when Apollo’s throw was blown off course, striking Hyacinthus a mortal blow to the head. Apollo denied Hyacinthus'​ soul its rightful place in the <apdx ref="​open:​settings:​6d6hellenic:​apdx:​underworld">​Underworld</​apdx>​ and made the flower hyacinth from his blood so the Spartan'​s beauty might live on. His passion was the undoing of several would-be lovers who did not return his advances.
