|~ Taurus Aldebaran|
Taurus Aldebaran is a character from the Saint Seiya Franchise, first introduced during the Classic Saint Seiya Manga / Anime. Born in Brazil and trained from childhood in the arts of combat, Cosmos and Iaijutsu, he became one of the Gold Saints of the 20th Century, donning the Taurus Cloth.
Despite his intimidating towering form, Aldebaran is a calm, easy going and gentle man, who is loyal to his friends and who puts the safety of the frail above all else. A true soldier, he takes pride in his position as a Saint and finds honor in completing his missions.
However, while a man of simple thoughts, he is far from naive nor easily manipulable. Rather, he follows his emotions and personal views rather thoughtlessly, and will not hesitate to face a former brother in arms, if he sees that his true nature is one of evil. Aldebaran is also a close friend of Aries Mu.

- Great Horn: A technique that is both defensive and offensive. In its defensive form, Aldebaran burns a great quantity of his Cosmos, energy surrounding his entire body, remaining with a firm posture and crossed arms as it happens. As he is about to be attacked by his opponent, Aldebaran makes a swift change of posture at Faster than Light speeds, the Cosmos that surrounded his body being released and creating a powerful shockwave that pushes the enemy away. In its offensive form, Aldebaran uncrosses his arms at speeds equally fast, focusing all of his burned Cosmos on the palms of his hands, and finally thrusting both towards his enemy, releasing a potent destructive wave that atomically obliterates the target upon contact.
