Apollo is the Crown Prince of Caprica, son of Archduke Adama, and brother to Lady Athena.

A Viper pilot, his former wingman and friend is Starbuck. Starbuck owes Apollo a life debt, which Lady Athena uses to her advantage following Apollo's abduction during the Cylonic suicide attack on Caprica.

After Apollo's abduction by the Cylonics, he is brought before Imperious Leader Baltar aboard the aetherprison Proteus. Baltar plans to have Apollo sent to Helia for hard labor, before finally extracting Apollo's brain and implanting it into a new iteration of Cylonic Knight—as a means to exact vengeance against Archduke Adama.

Aboard Proteus, he encounters two former subjects of the Colonial Empire that were excommunicated by the Quorum following Baltar's failed power-grab following the Ovion Wars: Boomer and Jolly (Steampunk Battlestar Galactica 1880 1).

Aided by Count Iblis, Apollo, Boomer and Jolly escape from Helia on a quest for vengeance, believing Adama and others dead as a result of the Cylonic attacks. Through Jolly's connection to a Centurion head, they learn of Gamoray and the true state of the Cylonic empire. Believing it to be their chance for a decisive attack, Apollo leads the group of unarmed shuttles to the planet, only to be intercepted by Starchaser (Steampunk Battlestar Galactica 1880 2 & 3).

Now reunited with his sister and former friend, and later by his father and the aethership Galactica, they strike at Gamoray. After a duel with Baltar on the planet, Apollo is left for dead — but during this time Starbuck defends his friend, and Apollo learns of the true reason for Starbuck's desertion from military service.

After Athena successfully destroys the babbage computer, thwarting Iblis' plan to take the Cylonics for himself, the Cylonic threat is defeated. Apollo survives the battle and orders his subjects to take care of the irreparably damaged Boomer and Jolly, whose minds are subsumed by Cylonic code from interfacing with the Cylonic hivemind.

Apollo returns to duty for the Colonial Empire with Starbuck at his side, serving aboard Galactica on a quest of vengeance, and a potential search for other lost worlds of the Empire (Steampunk Battlestar Galactica 1880 4).
