Suikyo trid to attack the Specter to no avail, but the Specter gave him the unexpected offer to join Hades' army and his brother's soul wouldn't have to suffer in hell after he dies.Suisho eventually died and was put in the Sanctuary graveyard to rest. Suikyo was ordered to go on a mission by the Pope and entrusted Shion and Dohko to look after Suisho's grave as he departed.During a raging snow storm somewhere in Italy, Suikyō caught Tenma sneaking away after stealing the belongings of the boy named Alone, Hades' chosen vessel for his soul in the 18th century.
After returning to Alone in the cottage nearby and finishing scolding Tenma, Suikyō was convinced by Alone that Tenma didn't steal his belongings. The night was extremely cold because of the snowstorm. Suikyō took the boys close to himself and warmed them with his body heat, so they could survive. Thereafter, Suikyō and Tenma strongly bonded emotionally, Tenma became the disciple of the Crateris Saint and was trained by him to become the Pegasus Saint.
