StatisticsAge: Pit's character is made from a mix of different Greek legends, so it's probably within the 2,000-3,000 year old range, even though he has the physical appearance of a young teenager, and there are literally 25 years between the first game and Kid Icarus: Uprising, meaning he doesn't age much at all, which suits some people.
Species: Pit is an angel and the head of the Palutena's holy army.
Location: Pit's been in many places throughout his time, including the Underworld. He is a resident of Angel Land in Skyworld.
Birth: Whilst no information has been shared of his birth, Pit was the captain of Palutena's bodyguard, until one day Medusa's Underworld Army attacked and Pit found himself trapped and in quite the predicament. With Palutena's help, giving him a bow even though she was being held prisoner back in Skyworld, Pit gathered the sacred treasures, defeated Medusa and saved the day -- job done, and he received a kiss of gratitude as thanks. He now usually resides in Angelland as Palutena's bodyguard, helping her out wherever he can.
Main Features: As an angel, Pit has wings, but for the most part he cannot fly unless Palutena gives him the "Miracle of Flight," and even then it is only for five minutes. He usually carries a weapon known as Palutena's Bow from which he shoots arrows made of light to defeat his enemies. There is quite a bit of difference in his appearance from the first two games, since it seems that Pit has grown out of all the puppy fat he had before.
Personality wise, he is a fearless and heroic fighter who will stand in the way of danger at any time. However, this fearlessness seems to come from his absolute trust in Lady Palutena, since he always seems quiet and nervous without her in the same way a child may be nervous when going to school for the first time and being without their parents.
Clothing: Pit wears traditional Ancient Greek era clothing with him mainly depicted wearing a white toga with a chlamys and belt, with gauntlets and gladiator sandals, all of varying colours throughout each game. For instance, the Game Boy title Of Myths and Monsters sees him wearing a laurel wreath on his head. In each game in the Kid Icarus series, Pit collects the three sacred treasures that not only give him the power to defeat Medusa, but bestow him with a more traditional soldier-type look.
ConceptPit is the captain of Palutena's personal bodyguard, and was once just a mere soldier. One day, Medusa's army invaded Skyworld with Pit falling into the Underworld. With the help of Lady Palutena, Pit made his way out of the Underworld to Skyworld with the sacred treasures and defeated Medusa and her army.
AppearancesPit has made quite a few cameos in his time, but has only been in four games as a playable character.
