swing it!.

Sometime before Hades revival in the 18th century, Raimi was transformed into a Specter by the arrival of the Specter Soul and Surplice of Worm. He made his was to join the other 108 Specters in "Italy" to wait for their Lord's imminent revival. During the wait, Pandora sent several of the Specters to test the defences of Athena's Sanctuary, one of them was Raimi.[1]

Having received the order to kill Athena, he headed for the Sanctuary and luckily stumbled upon a young girl and a Saint trainee. The Specter had been making his way into enemy territory underground and as such he had avoided discover. Seeing Sasha he thought she might offer him some amusement as he liked hearing women and children scream. Charging his Surplice tentacles at the girl they were interrupted by the boy Tenma, who did however not prove to be much of an effort for Raimi as he bound him up with his worms. He stated that he was Worm Raimi of the Earthly Hiding Star, and that in his spare time he liked to hear women and children screaming.
He sure is seeing colours.
He turned towards Sasha to the protest of the captive Tenma, but as the Specter approached the girl, the boy suddenly broke through Raimi's worm tentacles. Raimi had time to question how the boy had broken free before Tenma smashed a crater into the ground right in front of him. Wondering how such a brat could have so much power he used his Worm's Bind technique to strangle the boy. The Worm admitted that Tenma was strong and had surpassed him, and was furious about it. He started hitting and kicking the boy as he laid down on the ground, but was interrupted by a commanding voice that told him to stop. The young girl said that she would not allow him to hurt Tenma any more, to which he replied that he would soon be her turn. But Raimi suddenly felt a sensation, emanating from the girl was a huge Cosmo. He then realized who she were and headed straight for her saying that she saved him time looking for her and that he would probably gain rank by killing her. But as he prepared another Worm's Bind technique he was shot in the back by Aries Shion's Stardust Revolution technique. He crumbled to the ground defeated.[2]
