The following article comprises a list of the characters appearing in the short story serialization Saint Seiya The Lost Canvas - Anecdotes, complementary to the manga Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas.

These characters appear only in the Anecdotes sidestories and not in the main serialization, ranging from common folk to criminal organizations and the like, although some are featured briefly in the main serialization. Most of these characters appear only in a specific chapter.

He mastered the Satori technique, which allows him to read minds. He reveals himself to Gioca as Black Hound Yudo, and claims to be the one who slaughtered her family, the guardians of Death Queen Island, years ago. This allowed the group to escape, but the other Black Saints remain trapped as long as the Rangda mask exists - as only a member of the guardian clan is able to destroy it, he tries to goad Gioca into doing it.
