Though he’s a talented and and well-known musician, Scott always felt something was missing from his life. He’s handsome and loved by his fans, but he often felt frustrated with the trappings of the media industry. Scott loves music, but struggled to find his point of view in an industry that commodifies artistic expression. Though he loved performing, he felt like he was missing something in his life.

A fateful encounter with Markos, the Prophet of Olympus, awakened Scott to the truth. He’s a demigod, son of Apollo, the Olympian god of music. Since then, Scott felt like his life made sense. The need to create and perform music wasn’t just a passion. It was as much a part of him as breathing. He’s still trying to figure out what being Apollo’s son means for him, but he feels like he found the piece he’d been looking for.

Since awakening to his ancestry and powers, Scott has become a superhero. He helps Markos and the others when his busy schedule allows. Though he’s not sure that being a superhero is what he’s meant to do, he’s found a path that he thinks suits him. He’s helping people in ways he never imagined possible.

With his divine heritage now a prominent part of his life, Scott feels like he has a whole new grasp on music. Creativity flows more easily, and he feels like he can finally break the commercialized box he’s been stuck in for most of his career.
