     Chapter Pisces 

Pisces Lugonis
The former master of Albafica, and thus the former Pisces Saint.

Dryad Luko
A miraculous healer living on an island near the Sanctuary. People come from far and to be healed. Strangely, he looks a lot like the former Pisces, Lugonis. Because he's Lugonis's younger brother... and the Celestial Standing Star Dryad Spector.

  • Arc Villain: Of Chapter Pisces.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Offers his help to Albafica, when his real intention is to strip him of his powers. The reason why he cures everyone who asks his help isn't very noble, too (see below).
  • Deal with the Devil: Or Hades or maybe one of the other Underworld gods...
  • Evil Twin: Pisces Rugonis's younger Specter brother, who bears a striking resemblance to him.
    • Evil Uncle: To some extent, as Lugonis raised Albafica as his own child, and Luko is the former's younger brother.
  • Foreshadowing: Notice that one of the key plants he uses for healing is lilies. Lilies are actually toxic.
  • Love Makes You Evil: Although his motives are different on each version:
    • In the Drama CD, Luko became a Specter was to achieve the power to lift his brother's curse, his poisonous blood.
    • In the Anecdote adaptation, it's revealed he did it to save his beloved apprentice Pefko (an character exclusive to the manga) when he was about to die due to an unknown disease his remedies had no affect on.
  • The Medic: Widely known as a miraculous healer.
  • Mook Maker: The people he cures are transformed into Skeletons, Hades's foot soldiers.
  • Green Thumb: As Dryad, he can control any plants around him... including the Pisces Saint's Demon Roses.
  • Signature Move: Curse of Lily.
  • Villain's Dying Grace: Turned all the Skeletons on his island back to normal people, sans disease and injury, after Albafica defeated him.

  • Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: Frequently shown chain smoking cigars. In fact, when he briefly appears at the Sanctuary, the first thing he comments his how he prefers the smell of some to fresh air. And for added villainy, it's later revealed that the cigars he smokes are made of human souls.
  • Greed: His main motivation, the reason why he left the Sanctuary and became a Black Saint.
    • Gold Digger: Seems to be very interested in the Gold Cloths. Not the Saints, just the Cloths.
  • I Regret Nothing: Proudly declares this as he dives right into Hell.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Unlike his fellow Anecdote villains, he gets no Freudian Excuse or anything close to redemption.
  • Meaningful Name: Italian for "greedy".
    • Theme Naming: All the Black Saints are named after a trait of personality.

    • Distressed Damsel: Shows in full during the flashback: when they are running of a volcano eruption, she hurts her ankle and Elcid has to carry her to safety. She even passes out!
  • The Heavy: It's her tournament that sets the Capricorn Anecdote in motion.

Upyr Leibold

     Chapter Aries 

Aries Avenir

  • The Atoner: Is not guilty of any actual sin per se, but considers himself this for letting his Athena die, and will fight to the bitter end in the 1500s because of guilt and sadness.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He was one of the four Gold Saints from Sage/Hakurei's time who appeared in Hakurei's Seki Shiki Tenryou Ha.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: Becomes this as he is thrown from an alternative present to the 1500s.
  • Bad Future: Comes from one where in the present day, Hades WON the Holy War and destroyed the world. This prompted Chronos to send back Avenir and a group of Saints back to the 1500s.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Goes through this as he sees his fellow Gold Saints killed one by one, Athena and the Pope decapitated by a fully awakened Hades, and the Earth destroyed, before going back in time. It is actually SO BAD that Hakurei is afraid that Sion would DIE from the psychic backlash of synchronizing with Avenir's memories.
  • Iron Woobie: With all the crap the guy went through, you really want to give him a hug. Does not make him any less badass though, as the Specters realize quickly.
  • Meaningful Name: Avenir means "Future" in french.
  • Set Right What Once Went Wrong: Is basically given an opportunity by Chronos to do this.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Gets hit with this as he is transported to the 1500s where Athena's forces just have suffered the loss of THEIR Aries Saint, and think this is too good to be true. This also freaks out Hades' forces to no end.
