Apollyon does NOT like people. He is the ultimate misanthrope.
Apollyon: Where have you come from?
Christian: From the City of Destruction.
Apollyon: By this I perceive that you are one of my subjects. For I am the Prince of that city. Why then are you running away from your prince?
Christian: I was indeed born in your dominions. But I have given my allegiance to another, who is the King of Princes. How can I now, with fairness, go back on this? … Besides, to tell you the truth, I like his service better than yours.
Apollyon: You have already been unfaithful to him. You fell in the Slough of Despond. You slept, and let fall your parchment. And in all you say and do, you are inwardly desirous of vain-glory.
Christian: Too well I know it. Yet the King whom I serve is merciful and ready to forgive.
Apollyon: I am the enemy of this King. I hate his person, his laws and his people. Give him the slip, and work for me, and your wages shall be doubled.
Christian: I know your wages, you destroying Apollyon. They are not such as a man can live on.Adapted from Dangerous Journey, US. ed., Eerdmans, 2012
