Pisces Albafica (魚座のアルバフィカ) is the Pisces Gold Saint in Lost Canvas.
Albafica is enigmatic, silent, serene and lonely, but a noble heart indeed. He isolates himself in coldness and solitude and avoids approach, touch or even conversation at all costs, but he only does so in order to protect others from his presence due to his toxic blood.
Albafica has a great love for humanity, as evidenced by the people who live in the village close to the Sanctuary, "Rodorio". Just like Aphrodite , he is recognized as the most beautiful Saint (although he seems not to like being admired for his beauty, and even covers his face when someone says he is beautiful as a woman).

Rose Garden : Pisces tends a garden of poisonous roses whose fumes can dispatch enemies without him lifting a finger. Since Pisces is the last sign of the Zodiac, his temple is the final obstacle before reaching the Pope, and he sprouts this carpet of roses on the steps leading to the Pope's chamber as a deadly buffer zone. If Lost Canvas is to be believed, Pisces can make this garden bloom anywhere he pleases, since Albafica meets the invading Specters in the middle of such a garden before they even reached the temple of Aries.
Crimson Thorn : This attack seems to be unique to Albafica due to his highly toxic blood. When injured, he can cause his blood to evaporate and form a crimson mist. Then he commands the suspended droplets to form needles and bombard his opponent. Sometimes he skips the mist stage and goes straight to shooting blood needles. Anyone pierced by these dies within seconds.
Royal Demon Rose : Pisces flings red roses at his opponent. If the victim is cut by their thorns or inhales their fragrance, they are poisoned, gradually lose their five senses and ultimately die.
Piranha Rose : Pisces flings black roses at his opponent. While the red roses do damage over time, the black roses act like a swarm of piranhas, instantly tearing apart anything in their path. This can be used to either defend against attack or break through others' defenses, including armor.
Bloody Rose: In his ultimate attack, Pisces flings one or more white roses at his opponent. It seeks out the heart of its target, able to penetrate even Gold armor, and once it pierces the body, it will get dyed red as it sucks all the blood from its victim.
