9 The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth. The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss. 2 When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace. The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss. 3 And out of the smoke locusts came down on the earth and were given power like that of scorpions of the earth. 4 They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads. 5 They were not allowed to kill them but only to torture them for five months. And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion when it strikes. 6 During those days people will seek death but will not find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them.
7 The locusts looked like horses prepared for battle. On their heads they wore something like crowns of gold, and their faces resembled human faces. 8 Their hair was like women’s hair, and their teeth were like lions’ teeth. 9 They had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the thundering of many horses and chariots rushing into battle. 10 They had tails with stingers, like scorpions, and in their tails they had power to torment people for five months. 11 They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon and in Greek is Apollyon (that is, Destroyer).

When I first was given the information, it seemed like a good thing..but then I turned around and I guess "I" chose to harm people instead of helping them.
In the end I'm sure the choice was inevitably mine, but only after it was all said and done did I realize the true nature of what happened between the "spirit" and myself

Could you perhaps elaborate on the subject ?
I'm aware of the various theories regarding the Apollo mission, however I am more interested in hearing yours.
The goddess of the moon, daughter of a water god. She is the wife of Houyi, the heavenly archer. In Chinese, 嫦, "chang" means "immortal female" and 娥, "e," means "consort." Source www.pantheon.org...
The orbiter's nickname, Kaguya, was selected by the general public. It comes from the name of a lunar princess in the ancient Japanese folktale The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter.
In the end Kaguya is taken back to the moon were she was born as the princess of the moon. www.behindthename.com...
Meaning & History
From Greek Απολλων (Apollon), which is of unknown meaning, though perhaps related to Indo-European *apelo "strength". Another theory states that Apollo can be equated with Appaliunas, an Anatolian god whose name possibly means "father lion" or "father light". The Greeks later associated Apollo's name with the Greek verb απολλυμι (apollymi) meaning "to destroy". In Greek mythology Apollo was the son of Zeus and Leto and the twin of Artemis. He was the god of prophecy, medicine, music, art, law, beauty, and wisdom. Later he also became the god of the sun and light. Source www.behindthename.com...
Finally, I know there are many definitions for many different things in our world. Given that he was not a real person, we can imagine him to be anything we want.
The definitions placed upon such a figure hold as much weight as we allow them to.
