The Crystal Saint (水晶聖闘士 Kurisutaru Seinto ) is an anime exclusive character. He is the master Cygnus Hyoga's and Kraken Isaac's master in the anime adaptation, as opposed to the manga, in which their master is Aquarius Camus. In the anime, Camus was Crystal Saint's master instead.
This happened because the anime was being produced at the same time of the first arcs of the manga. At some point the anime surprassed the events of the manga, so original fillers were needed to be created, that later conflicted with the canon story, since the producers didn't know of Camus existence.
Crystal Saint is a very honorable and righteous Saint. He is a kind but also austere master for Hyoga.
He was considered a threat by Pope Ares, who forced him into his control with his Genrou Maou ken technique. After an emotional battle with Hyoga, Crystal Saint takes his own life to stop Sanctuary from conquering the West Siberia.
Skills and abilities
- Frozen Fist (凍結拳, Tōketsu-ken): A technique that freezes the feet of the opponent to immobilize them.
Variation: He uses a variation against Cygnus Hyōga.
- Diamond Dust (ダイヤモンドダスト, Daiyamondo Dasuto)
- In the Hades Saga, that has nothing to do with the original anime, a memory of Hyoga shows that his master was Camus. Since then, in subsequent storylines or adaptations of past storylines, Crystal Saint is largely disregarded in favor of Camus as Hyoga's mentor.
- Alternatively read as Suishō seinto, Japanese for "Crystal St. Warrior".
- He is argued by some to be the Corona Borealis saint, but is never officially attributed the title, nor is he part of the canon story.
