........Poor Icarus! He has issues. He's the legendary boy with the wax wings who flew too close to the sun, permanently frying his hair and his brains. Well, that's the official story, anyway, but it's not the only reason for his, er,distinctive... personality.

His father is Daedalus, the famous crackpot genious inventor described as having the "most unique mind in all of Greece." His parents are divorced ........and he's a latchkey kid with apparently WAY too much free time on his hands. He 's insanely in love with Cassandra, who, at least on the surface, does not appear to return his feelings {they gotta kind of mongoose/cobra thing going on} and the six or seven thousand concussions he's gotten from crashing can't have helped matters much. He's a cheerfully obnoxious, undergrown runty little guy, a natural target for bullies like Adonis to push around, and the most unpopular kid in school. Even his teachers can't stand him.

But for all his problems, Icarus remains amazingly philosophical. He's the court jester of the trio made up of himself, Herc and Cassandra, and the wise little fool who generally comes up with the truest - and funniest - remarks, remarks that go over most people's heads. {"Maturity.....perhaps the greatest Foe.. of all".....} Except, of course, for Hercules, {and maybe Cassandra! }who are the only two people at Pro Ac that recognize what a decent true loyal friend Icarus is, and how kind a heart he has. Which is good .....cause "Ickie" comes up with some of the craziest ideas in the series. He's ready for any adventure, no matter what - he's a risk taker, a thrill junkie {you just know he runs with scissors}, and he rarely takes the time to think things through. Again and again Herc comes to his rescue, whether it's saving him from monsters or his own chariot -crash personality. Ick, in turn, idolizes his best pal and sticks by him through thick and thin. And, despite the fact that his Disney creators insist his advice generally comes in two flavors, "Wrong" and "Dangerously Wrong," he nevertheless often helps save the day - even if it's in a lefthanded, backdoor accidental kind of manner.....
