He takes the baby Athena and escapes Sanctuary, but is eventually killed by the Capricorn Gold Saint Shura. Seven years later, Aiolos’s younger brother, Leo Gold Saint Aiolia, is sent out on several missions by the Pope to prove his loyalty to the Sanctuary. In one of his missions, Aiolia meets a girl called Lithos and adopts her as his sister when her father dies. Soon afterwards, a mysterious individual attacks Sanctuary and the Gold Saints gather with the Pope to discuss what to do.

As punishment for arriving late to the meeting with the Gold Saints and causing trouble with one of the others, Aiolia is ordered by the Pope to stop the invader. The enemy reveals himself to be Ebony Hyperion, one of the twelve Titans, who seeks the weapon of his King, the God of Time Kronos, to free him from Zeus’s prison. Aiolia faces Hyperion in battle, but is easily defeated. As Lithos puts herself in danger to try to save him, however, he rises to fight once again. This time, Hyperion retreats after Aiolia breaks his divine body armor. Aiolia’s own armor, the Leo Gold Cloth, is heavily damaged and he goes with the Taurus Gold Saint, Aldebaran, to Jamir to ask Aries Gold Saint Mu to repair it.

The Titan King orders Iapetos to leave and challenges Aiolia to a future fight. Before falling unconscious, Mu uses his blood to repair Aiolia’s Cloth, as he now recognizes him as a good Saint.

Aiolia easily defeats Minos, saving the abducted children. In another mission, Aiolia goes to Chuang-Yan to defeat a Gorgon that had previously killed a Silver Saint. There, he meets the Silver Saint’s student, the Lynx Bronze Saint, and allows the boy to avenge his master and kill the Gorgon himself. Back at Sanctuary, Aiolia is given a third mission: to protect Virgo Gold Saint Shaka in India while he performs a ritual to destroy the evil spirits that the Titans’ presence unleashed on Earth.

Aiolia arrives then and fights Kronos at the Twelve Temples. Kronos attempts to absorb Aiolia’s lighting attacks to restore his body, as they possess the same type of energy as Zeus’s seal.

With help from Galan, Aiolia recovers his arm and continues fighting Pontos. Aiolia soon becomes tired, but the Libra Gold Saint creates an illusion of himself to protect Aiolia from Pontos’s attacks. Mu then uses his powers to teleport Shura, Camus, Milo, Aldebaran and Shaka to the Time Labyrinth to assist Aiolia.

Final chapter: “The golden boy”
Overwhelmed by Kronos’s might and speed, Aiolia begins to despair, until he finally discovers a way to attack Kronos. He asks his fellow Gold Saints to leave the Labyrinth with the Titans’ human followers, and, remembering his promise to Hyperion, offers Kronos a choice: to either return to Earth with him or to die alongside him. The Titan King chooses the latter and they each unleash their ultimate attacks. Both fall, but Kronos soon recognises Aiolia’s determination and regrets his decision. He makes a deal with Hades, who had witnessed the battle, offering his power in exchange for Aiolia’s life. With Kronos dead, mankind is saved. On Earth, Deathmask orders the Titans’ human followers to don the Black Cloths. Aiolia awakens before his brother’s grave, where he is reunited with Lithos and Galan. Elsewhere, Pontos is disappointed that his plan to gain Kronos’s power has failed, but swears that the peace the Saints have won is only temporary.
