Capricorn is one of the main characters in the AstroLOLogy animated series. He appears to be a goat-like humanoid with a white cap with horns on top along with green overalls. He first appeared in the episode "Scent-o-logy" with his first major appearance being in the episode "High on Love" in the 2018 series. He is voiced by Lester Wong Tze Jiang, who also voices Aries. He was under the name Casey during the 2016 shorts.
In the Japanese dub, he is named Metan (めーたん) and is voiced by Misato Arari (亜利 美里).
Capricorn appears to be small, weak and shy, but never underestimate him: This undersized goat has an oversized heart and an oversized brain and he never gives up. As the Bellman at the city's best hotel Capricorn is an "old soul" and nothing fazes him.
He is very determined to get things done and always willing to help others, but is extremely unlucky and often struggles with his own commitments.
He was born on December, as seen in "A Flaming New Year".
In Real Life
The constellation of the greek zodiac by the name of Capricorn, is as strange as that of Sagittarius. It is a sea god, with the head and half the body of a goat, and the tail of a fish.
The story of Capricorn is associated with the birth of Zeus, the father of all gods.
As the story goes, when Rhea gave birth to baby Zeus, she feared that her cruel husband Cronus would devour her child, just as he did with the previous ones that she gave birth to.
So, she secretly took her child to Crete, where he was safely kept in a cave on Mount Dicte. There, he was nursed and cared for by Amaltheia, whose name means "tender". She was a goat nymph, and she looked after baby Zeus with the greatest love and devotion, feeding him on her own rich milk and sweet lavender-scented honey.
In recognition of all she had done for him, she set her image among the rest of the stars on the greek zodiac, as the constellation of Capricorn.
- In the original 2016 shorts, he was depicted as a merman, with the lower body of a fish.
- In fact, his original design looks closer to Capricorn in mythology, who has the upper body of a goat and the lower body of a fish.
- His name "Casey" means vigilant, watchful. These attributes match the character himself.
