Saint Seiya : Gold Cloth Aquarius Camus Action FigureAquarius Camus (水瓶座のカミュ, Akueriasu no Kamyu) is a Gold Saint, guardian of the temple of Aquarius, and also Cygnus Hyoga and Kraken Isaac’s master in manga. In the anime, he was the master of the Crystal Saint, who was Hyoga and Isaac’s master.

Camus is a cold looking Saint, since he believes the Gold Saint, as the strongest among Athena’s guards, should never show exasperation or it would draw the people into despair.
In the manga, he reveals that he actually knew that the Pope wasn’t working under Athena’s will, but he still kept working under his orders to fulfill his role as the Aquarius Gold Saint. Even so, he was glad to see his pupil Hyoga fighting for the real Athena.

Saint Seiya : Gold Cloth Aquarius Camus Action FigureSince Milo fought Hyoga, he mentioned Camus in a way that led the fans to believe they were close friends. Apparently, this was made official since the animation of the Hades saga included more personal interaction between them than the manga, and they are depicted as friends in Saint Seiya Episode G.

Power and abilities
Camus, unlike the other Gold Saints, specialized his Cosmo energy not in create power by the movement of atoms, but by stopping the same movement. Due to this, his power consists not in destroying the matter, but in freezing it. Among those warriors who use this kind of ability, Camus is considered the stronger since he is the one who can lower more the movements, creating a lower temperature. Having mastered the 7th sense, Camus is able to achieve with ease the lowest possible temperature: the Absolute Zero. In the Hades Arc it seems Camus awakes the 8th sense as he is able to enter the Underworld. His techniques are:

  • Diamond Dust (ダイヤモンドダスト, daiyamondo dasuto): A basic technique using the freezing Cosmo energy to shot a blast of freezing energy.
    Kol’tso (Russian for ring) (カリツォー, karitsō?): Although Hyoga used this attack sometimes in the original series, it was never said Camus also possessed it until he used in Saint Seiya Episode.G. It creates rings of icy wind that encycles the body of the target stopping its movements.
  • Freezing Coffin (フリージングコフィン, furījingu kofin): This is a technique used to lock a body inside a block of ice, but since it has a slow realization it probably is not effective against moving targets. Although he commented not even the combined strength of all 12 Gold Saints could break this, Griffin Minos destroyed it with a punch when used as a wall by Cygnus Hyoga. Even so, when someone is locked inside it, the only way to get out is creating a temperature lower than that of the coffin.
  • Aurora Execution (オーロラエクスキューション, ōrora ekusukyūshon): Camus’s most famous and strongest technique, it claimed to be the technique that best uses the freezing power of its user. See details
