Just as in the myths, Charon was responsible of ferrying the dead over the river Acheron in hell. He had a knack for singing during the trip which he charged a silver coin for. One day the warriors of Athena arrived, the Saints Pegasus Seiya and Andromeda Shun. The Specter bickered and fought with the saints, but would ferry them across if they could pay him. Shun offered his pendant, but the Specter gave it back when he thought the Andromeda Saint actually had a chance to enter Elysion. With Pegasus Seiya he was however not pleased with and after reaching the other shore, they made a standoff where Seiya was the victor.
