Cyclops Gigant was the leader of the Specter force sent by Wyvern Rhadamanthys to invade Athena’s Sanctuary. He was sent to keep tabs on the revived Gold Saints who were supposed to kill Athena whom they had served before. The Gold Saints did however disappear so the Specters saw no way but to continue the mission on their own. Gigant and his companions managed to get as far as to the Virgo Temple when he suspected that there was a traitor among his men, but were interrupted by the presence of Virgo Shaka. During their encounter, it was revealed that the Gold Saints had killed and disguised themselves as some of the Specters. The Gold Saints was however allowed to pass through the Temple and so, the Specter thought they were also allowed . But Shaka immediately attacked and killed all six remaining Specters. Gigant squirmed with his last breath that those who served Hades would be rewarded with eternal life. Shaka replied that he, who had conversed with gods in the past, had never been told a human had been given eternal life. Gigant gasped in horror as he realized that Hades had tricked them before he died.
