Pontos is the Primordial God of the Waters & the Ocean, and arguably the primary antagonist of the Manga Saint Seiya: Episode G. He is one of the Four Great Gods birthed by Gaia, the Mother Goddess, and also the God of Fate, with his hand guiding and swaying the currents of the ocean of time.
Pontos is a truly vile and sinister deity, who revels in his power over mortal and immortal alike, and views humanity as worthless, laughable dolls under his absolute control. A complete sadist, he brings despair and suffering to mankind for his own enjoyment, and holds the belief that human existence holds no purpose other than to fulfill the whims of the gods. His opinion of other deities is hardly noble, either, as he views them as nothing but pawns to be manipulated for his own gain.
The only being whom Pontos has any good-will towards is his mother Gaia, who he holds immense love and devotion towards. Throughout the Episode G storyline, Pontos' primary goal is to release the Mother Goddess from Zeus' seals, and to do so he his inflicts influence over all, with both the Titans and the Saints as pawns beneath his hands, their conflicts and battle ultimately serving to fulfill his will.
