Apollo

I am the eye with which the Universe
Beholds itself and knows itself divine;
All harmony of instrument and verse,
All prophecy, all medicine is mine,
All light of art or nature ;-to my song
Victory and praise in its own right belong.

-Shelley

The handsome god of music, playing a golden lyre, the son of Zeus and Leto, also called the Archer for his skilled shooting with a silver bow, the god of healing who taught man medicine, the god of light, the god of truth for he cannot speak a lie. As a patron of wisdom, he encourages people to know themselves and to live their lives in moderation. He foretells the future through his oracle at Delphi and shares his knowledge with mortals through that means. He is also a master musician and storyteller. One of Apollo's more important daily tasks is to harness his chariot with four horses and drive the Sun across the sky. He encourages his followers to learn the arts of alchemy and mechanical along with arcane skills.

Apollow favors training in Alchemy and Mechanical Knowledge. He disfavors training in Acrobatics. His symbol is a crown of laurel leaves (his bird the crow, his animal the dolphin) and his followers often offer him arrows, sun shaped medallions, bows, and sapphires to gain favor.
