Characters: Saint Seiya Other And Unknown Rank Saints
Crystal Saint (Anime Only)
- Brainwashed and Crazy: The Pope pulled this on him, thus forcing Hyoga to kill him.
- Dying as Yourself / Died in Your Arms Tonight: After being shot to death regains self-control and, as his last act, throws his shot on the pyramid of ice built by Arles and falls into the arms of his pupil. Before expiring can ask forgiveness for what he had done to Hyoga.
- Canon Foreigner: Is the master of Hyoga in the anime and the substitute to Camus in all the flashbacks of the training.
- Good Is Not Dumb: Was also aware that something went on in the Sanctuary, so he tried to talk to the Pope himself. It backfired. Horribly.
- Mentor Occupational Hazard: To Hyoga.
- No Name Given: His real name is unknown.
- The Obi-Wan: To Hyoga, in the anime.
- Waif-Fu: EXTREMELY Rare Male Example. His body is unnaturally flexible without being a Rubber Man, thus he uses his hands and legs to apply the Freezing Fists to Hyoga's almost whole body.
- Shoo Out the New Guy: Due to the anime, Over Took The Manga, Crystal Saint was declared Hyoga's Master instead of Camus. The only explanation they could give was that Camus was Crystal Saint's Master and that Hyoga's fight was with his Master's Master. This explanation worked for a while until the Hades OVA where it started showing scenes of Camus training Hyoga instead. It doesn't help that some video games and media keep altering between Camus/Crystal as Hyoga's Master who trained him.
