Kaitos Moses (白鯨星座のモーゼス, Kaitosu no Mōzesu), also known as Cetus Moses or Whale Moses (白鯨星座のモーゼス, Hoēru no Mōzesu) is a Silver Saint.
Moses was sent to Japan in a group consisting of Eagle Marin, Hound Asterion, Centaurus Babel and Lizard Misty, to execute the Bronze Saints. After Misty tried to bury the Bronze Saints in an avalanche on Mount Fuji, they each chased after a Saint. but due to the intervention of Aries Mu they chased after and killed the Black Saints instead. Believing they were the Bronze Saints, they were buried and the Silver Saints left for Sanctuary. But as both Misty and later Babel didn't come after them, they suspected something had happened and returned to Japan. There they found their comrades lying dead on the same beach they thought they had buried the Bronze Saints.Asterion immediately turned to Marin, since she was the one who was supposed to kill Pegasus Seiya. The Eagle saint didn't say anything, so Asterion used his Telepathic powers to read her mind, thus he found out the whole story. While Mozes started attacking her, Asterion read her mind and directed his moves. In a short while, they had outnumbered her and later tied her upside down to a pole out in the sea. They were hoping to attract the Pegasus Saint this way, which it did. They started their battle with the same combination as with Marin, and when it seemed like they were winning the tides changed. Asterion, having claimed that Marin might be Seiya's sister, had now ignited Seiya's cosmo. The Pegasus Saint sprouted what seemed like wings, and defeated Moses in a short time.
Chronology (OAVs Hades)EditIn the Hades arc adaptation in the Anime, Moses had been resurrected by Hades and went with Misty and Babel to Siberia were Hyoga was. They tried to defeat him but was easily overpowerd by Hyoga's chilly ice. Yet as they lay there dying among the ice, they entrusted Athena to his care.
Although Moses' resurrection is clearly depicted in the anime as a minor addition to the manga plot, Kurumada only hinted it in his manga, with the opened tombs of deceased Silver Saints.
