The Aquarius Gold Cloth is the cloth of the Saint Camus in Saint Seiya, Saint Seiya: Soul of Gold and Saint Seiya: Episode G, 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.
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.
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 Saintscombined their power into his arrow to destroy the Wall of Lamentations, which ended up killing him.
