Zelos was the Specter who sent 17 of his partners to Athena's Sanctuary, to keep tabs on the revived Gold Saints by the order of Wyvern Rhadamanthys. He was quick to question if they had done the right thing without the permission of Pandora, sensing her fury if she were to find out about it. But Rhadamanthys only cared for the Specters to take Athena's head since he didn't trust the revived Gold Saints. Some time later the Judge wanted a status report and called for Zelos. The Specter said he had no news even though it had been 4 hours, so the Wyvern replied that he should send Papillon Myu as well. But Zelos had already sent the Specter there with the rest, which relieved Rhadamanthys. Later, the news of Athena's death was told to Zelos by one of Papillon's butterflies. He reported it to Rhadamanthys, who became a little worried over why the Goddess had taken her own life. Zelos smirked while wondering if his commander shouldn't be more worried about Pandora, since none of the Specters had returned alive. So while he informed him that she had been waiting for him, he jumped of to Pandora's chambers. As Rhadamanthys received his Punishment, Zelos looked on with enjoyment.
Sneaky FrogEditAs the revived Gold Saints Gemini Saga, Capricorn Shura and Aquarius Camus returned to Hades' Castle, they brought the supposedly dead body of Athena with them. When they didn't want to show the body, unless right in front of Hades himself, Zelos jumped forth and pulled the cloth wrappings away. Inside there was no body except for the blood of the Goddess, Saga said they didn't know were it had gone and that it must have disappeared on the way, maybe she had gone to Hades for a trip. Zelos was angry by the insolence of the Saints and charged against them, but was interrupted by Camus who threw him away with an icy attack. As the Saints planned on using Pandora as a hostage, they were interrupted by the light from the rising sun. Pandora soon realized what could be Athena's true intentions and headed for the Underworld. Zelos took this time to take revenge on Camus, and started kicking & stomping on him. Rhadamnthys said he was wasting his time, but Zelos was angry. Suddenly the Bronze Saints Pegasus Seiya, Dragon Shiryu, Cygnus Hyoga and Andromeda Shun burst through the glass window in the ceiling and shoved Zelos away from Camus. The Specter became even more angry and started kicking Camus more, while saying that this is what happens when someone shoves him. Hyoga then blasted away the Frog with one of his icy punches, and took farwell of Camus before he and Saga & Shura disappeared. As Rhadamnthys were leaving for the underworld, Zelos got no help so he took on the Bronze Saints. Hyoga said that Camus was his master , but Zelos didn't hear it and asked what he said. The Saint replied with his "Diamond Dust" technique, the SPecter then heard what he had said when he felt the cold again. But when he asked for help from the Wyvern, he got nothing. So as he charged towards the Cygnus Saint, he was blown into the wall by the "Aurora Execution" and died.
There was a Chinese proverb: "frog wants to eat swan", and the story itself was from India. It is used for blaming wicked people. The battle between the Swan Saint and Frog Specter is from that proverb since Zelos insulted Gold Saints and Hyoga revenged for that.
The Lost Canvas Edit
In The Lost Canvas, Zelos appeared briefly after Taurus Aldebaran, used his Titan's Nova to finish Dullahan Cube. Zelos survived the explosion appearing under the debris, laughing maniacally and beating the body of the dead Saint. Soon after, Bennu Kagaho appeared and defeated him, ordering to stop beating Aldebaran's body. He is last seen as a prisoner in the Scorpion Temple where he was tortured - and apparently killed - by Kardia.
