Griffin Minos, one of three Hades' three most powerful Specters known as "Judges", and his men arrive at the sanctuary and kill of several Athena Saints. Their march toward the sanctuary is stopped by a field of red roses, which kills several Specters as they try to cross. The Pisces Gold Saint, Albafica makes his presence known before the invading Specters and easily kills off a few more Specters. The Specter Deep Niobe intercedes and neutralizes the poisonous flower field with his own poison. In order to protect a nearby village, Albafica absorbs the poison into his own body, and then kills Niobe. Minos steps in, and manages to restrain the Albafica with his cosmic marionettion and orders his men to destroy the nearby village as a way of taunting Albafica. Minos vows to break every bone in Albafica's body with his puppeteering ability, but the Pisces Saint proves to be resilient.
