The Aquarius Gold Cloth is the cloth of the Saint Camus in Saint Seiya and Saint Seiya: Episode G(and briefly worn by Hyoga in the Original Series), and Dégel and Krest in Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas. It is of the highest class of the cloths that Athena's Saints wield, the Gold Cloths.

Cloth History

One dye job away from Sonic the Hedgehog...

Mythology: Even The Greeks Loved Bishonens...

The Aquarius constellation is likely based on the myth of the one called Ganymede, a youth so beautiful, Zeus took the form of an Eagle and carried him to Mount Olympus, to be the Cup Bearer, or Water Bearer.

Classic: Master of Ice Surpassed?

Camus trained to be a Saint in Siberia by an unknown master. The cloth was likely kept in Sanctuary until a Saint worthy of wearing it was found. Camus first appeared in volume 8 of the manga, in which he caused a seaquake that sent Hyoga's mother's resting place into the bottom of the sea. Camus attempted to spare his student from a fight, but in the end, Camus died fighting Hyoga, who surpassed him by reaching Absolute Zero. During the Poseidon Arc, the cloth went to Hyoga, and he wore it for the fight with Poseidon. Camus' next appearance was at Sanctuary along with Shura and Saga during the Hades Arc, in Surplices in a ploy to help Athena fight Hades. He returned in the land of the dead with his cloth, and the other Gold Saints combined their power into his arrow to destroy the Wall of Lamentations, which ended up killing him.

Lost Canvas: Previous War

Dégel was the Guardian of the eleventh house of Sanctuary in The Lost Canvas. His notable feat during the series was his quest to obtain the Orichalcum to use in their ship to sail to the Lost Canvas. In the course of the journey, he is forced to fight two old friends, and sacrifices his life to seal Poseidon's power in his own realm, entrusting the precious metal to his formerly turned ally.

Cloth Design: The Golden Vase

Classic Manga: One Step Up From The Actual Cup

"Life has deemed me the most important guy who pours water to others...how humbling."


This is the form the Aquarius Gold Cloth takes during the original Saint Seiya series' manga. Camus earned the cloth in Siberia, and it was first seen when The Pope revealed the cloth boxes to Aiolia and Miro in volume 7, but it's true form wasn't revealed until volume 8. Like most Gold Cloth's original forms, it covers most of the body in a golden armor. The cloth itself shows no real unique traits outside of those given to other Gold Cloths. Kurumada really outdid himself, at the time, with the Gold Cloths, showing a new level of detail that the other Cloths didn't match. The Cloth was last seen in Elyseum, worn by Hyoga, before it was shattered by Thanatos' attack.

Classic Anime: Not Evil, Just Stupid

Freezing his student forever to prevent him from dying? Best teacher ever!


This is the form the Aquarius Gold Cloth takes during the original Saint Seiya series' anime. Camus earned the cloth in Siberia, and it was first seen when The Pope revealed the cloth boxes to Aiolia and Miro, but it's true form wasn't revealed until his punishment of Hyoga by sinking his mother's ship. Like most Gold Cloth's original forms, it covers most of the body in a golden armor. The cloth itself shows no real unique traits outside of those given to other Gold Cloths. Sticking to Toei tradition, the anime version of the Aquarius Gold Cloth has less detail, to make animation easier; one noticeable change is that the arms are shortened in the anime adaptation. The Cloth was last seen in Elyseum, worn by Hyoga, before it was shattered by Thanatos' attack.

Episode G: The Toast of Sanctuary

Get it? Another cup pun! The wit on display here is of legend!


This is the form the Aquarius Gold Cloth takes during Saint Seiya: Episode G. Camus earned the cloth in Siberia, and it was first seen when The Pope called a meeting of all of the Gold Saints. Like most Gold Cloth's original forms, it covers most of the body in a golden armor. The cloth itself shows no real unique traits outside of those given to other Gold Cloths. The Episode G version of the Aquarius Gold Cloth does add much detail, like all Cloths of this design, but keeps things closer to the original manga design.

Lost Canvas Manga: Bluegraad? Talk About Digging At the Bottom of Kurumada's Barrel

My backstory is one step of importance away in the series from the Steel Saints...


This is the form the Aquarius Gold Cloth takes during Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas' manga. Dégel earned the cloth sometime before the start of the series, and it first appeared early in the manga, during a group shot of Gold Saints. Like most Gold Cloth's original forms, it covers most of the body in a golden armor. The cloth itself shows no real unique traits outside of those given to other Gold Cloths. Matching the level of detail set by Kurumada, Shiori brings her own style to the Aquarius Gold Cloth, while remaining true to the original. The Cloth was last seen in Poseidon's Temple, Dégel sacrificing his life to stop the rampaging Poseidon.

Properties

Special Abilities of Gold Cloth of Aquarius

The Aquarius Gold Cloth, while having all of the strength and endurance of a Gold Cloth, has no special traits that make it stand out as a cloth.

Techniques used by Aquarius Saints

Between Camus, Dégel, and Krest, four major techniques are used during the various series.

"Diamond Dust"

"Diamond Dust" is a basic offensive technique used by Camus and Dégel in their respective series. The technique involves releasing a moderately cold cosmo from one's fist to freeze or damage the foe.

"Kol'tso (Ring)"

"Kol'tso" is a defensive technique used by Dégel in The Lost Canvas. The technique, named after the Russian word for Ring, surrounds the foe in a ring of icy cold cosmo, binding them in place. Multiple of these rings can be placed on one foe, if needed.

"Aurora Execution"

"Aurora Execution" is the signature offensive technique used by Camus and Dégel in their respective series. The technique involves clasping one's hands together overhead, like it was a vase. Creating an intense level of cold with one's cosmo, the hands are tipped forward, as if the cosmo were emptying from the vase onto the foe.

"Freezing Coffin"

"Freezing Coffin" is a strong trapping technique used by Camus and Dégel in their respective series. The technique involves sealing a target (usually a rival fighter) in an intensely cold block of ice. It is said that not even the combined power of several Gold Saints can break it. However, the Libra Weapons have been shown to break it, as well as, the power of Griffon Minos' punch. Also, if a colder air is generated by the trapped victim, it will break as well.
