|Constellation / star|
Century. Aldebaran's real name is Rasgado (ハスガード, Hasugādo?). His nickname is also alternatively spelled, both in the manga and the animation with the forced reading Aldebaran (巨星, Arudebaran?), with the kanji meaning Giant Star.
Personality and BackgroundEdit
He is a noble master who treasures his friends and students and always smiles. He is mentor to Teneo, Salo and Celintha, having once saved their lives, and was chosen by them as their teacher.
Aldebaran's wounds from his fight against Kagaho are torn open again during a fight, but he was able to kill Wimber after discovering that they wanted to kill Tenma. Then his heart is stopped by Dullahan Cube's Death Messenger. In that moment, he has a dream of Sisyphos telling him to win, reminding him how much it hurt Athena when one of her Saints died. Then, Aldebaran performs Titan's Nova, despite his stilled heart, and kills Cube. His dead body is then attacked by Frog Zelos but he is stopped and defeated by Bennu Kagaho.
Aldebaran is said to be the Gold Saint with the fastest attack. His skill with the Iai Position allows him to maintain his arms crossed during the attack. This also allows him to perform:
- The Great Horn (グレートホーン, Gurēto Hōn?), a fast technique in which he creates a big blast with his palms.
- His most powerful attack is Titan's Nova (タイタンズノヴァ, Taitanzu Nova?), a more powerful version of the Great Horn with only one arm that Aldebaran normally uses on the ground to destroy all the area. The Iai Position is broken when Aldebaran performs it.
